More Grip for Your 2015 Ford Mustang Fastback GT Performance Pack

As we saw for ourselves at Willow Springs, Ford has done an awewsome job with brand new S550 2015 Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack! As you can see in the video, the driver had a great lap, but even the best cars can desire more grip. How about swapping on some custom fit closeout matte graphite 20x10 ET40 Hotckis Y-Sports on Extreme Performance Summer...  Read More

New Lightweight Track Wheel from MOTEGI RACING

Anyone who has spent a Saturday at an autocross event or a road course knows that lighter is better. Lighter is especially better when referring to unsprung weight. Unsprung weight is anything not supported by the suspension of your vehicle such as wheels, tires and brakes. As one of the best bang-for-your-buck upgrades, a set of dedicated lightweight...  Read More

Lightweight Wheels for Your Nissan GT-R

20" wheels are heavy. As we know, weight is the enemy of performance and it is especially marked in the form of unsprung weight. Unsprung weight is everything not supported by your vehicle's suspension like your wheels, tires and brakes. Decreasing unsprung weight will make your vehicle brake, corner and accelerate more efficiently. Opinions vary, but a...  Read More

Putco L.E.D. Bulb Replacements

Have you ever looked at your turn signals or brake lights and wished they were brighter? I did recently, and picked up a set of Putco L.E.D. tail lights, front amber turn signals and reverse lights to replace my current bulbs. The difference was really surprising!  In the past, I've tried the 360 style L.E.D. replacement bulbs, and they worked out well....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I bought these tires for my 2005 Ford Crown Victoria after several winters of getting stuck on a level surface with one inch on snow on it. This car is probably the worst possible vehicle to drive in winter conditions, so I thought it would be a good test vehicle for these tires. So far here in cleveland we have had rain, snow, ice, and slush. These tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Amazing tire. Just had them installed last Saturday (11/29) and on Tuesday morning I got caught in an ice storm driving my Z4 and I never slid once. I-64 was partially closed in the opposite direction because of the many accidents. I drove carefully but I had no problems accelerating or braking on the ice. My previous tires couldn't even handle a left turn...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

This is my first set of snow tires. I've always used all season tires, but never again. I put them on in November. I was a little worried that they would be rough or loud on dry pavement, but they are nice and quiet. Of course handling isn't as good as normal summer tires on dry pavement, but the compromise is acceptable. Snow is where these tires are worth...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

These are absolutely excellent tires for the price, and I'd recommend them for nearly any normal vehicle. I've had several sets of different Yokohama tires, and have enjoyed every single one of them (including AS530, various AVID and Geolander truck tires). These AVID Touring-S tires have been perfect for 60,544 trouble free miles so far as of today. I'm...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Sense

I have driven on this tire in dry, wet, and snowy conditions with both empty and fully loaded vehicle conditions. This tire has exceeded my expectations for performance in all areas. I push my Neon fairly hard everywhere that I drive it and these tires have been great at inspiring confidence in turns, acceleration, and hard braking.The Kumho Sense is a great...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

OEM Tires on my 2013 Mustang with Track Pack. 3.73 rear end with 420hp. I drive 70 miles round trip per day. 2/3 highway. I only expected to get 20k miles out of the tires based on reviews, and am very pleased that I have 29k on them and a few more to go. I drive hard - acceleration, braking, and cornering, but if you don't light them up, they will hold up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

I have had these tire a short time, but I am really glad I bought these. I replaced the original Bridgestone Duellers on my 2011 Chevy Silverado because of the tire noise. Also the Deullers were horrible in wet and snow. These Michelins' are great. The tire noise is minimal and they are smooth and quiet. In the rain, I barely have to adjust my driving speed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

Put these on my wife's car because Blizzaks were sold out and cheaper than Michelins. Nokians weren't available at the time, so I figured I was settling with this tire. I've been pretty surprised. These are on my wife's Volvo, which is FWD until it needs all wheels, with very nanny-ish traction and stability control. The car is completely stable with these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival

Spiritired doesn't begin to cover it. I drive hard. Very hard. I've had this set of Rivals on my S2000 for almost a year now. Its my daily driver, and my weekend warrior. For a tire with no directional rain grooves, these still have the best feeling in the wet. Traction is always there, and gives clear warning before its gone. In the dry they're the best...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I was able to experience these in light and heavy snow as well as ice all in one drive to work this year. In light snow they are fine and braking and steering were still predictable. They did give up a good amount traction in deep snow and ice. Even with all wheel drive I did not feel very confident in the tire's ability to stop and steer around corners. If...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

Given the compromises of an all-season tire over a dedicated summer or winter tire (which is usually what I have to choose), these tires are the best all-seasons I've ever had. They have excellent wet/dry cornering grip and brake very well. They almost feel like dedicated summer tires. Surprisingly, they do all this and manage to be very quiet. They also...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

will check back after more miles put on these tires-replaced Michelin Latitudes with this tire--Latitudes were good tires and wore well. The Firestone's track well, are quiet, and brake well in wet and dry conditions. If they wear as well as the Michelin's did, I'll be a happy guy. So far so good--nice quiet, stable ride.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I have 2500 miles on tires. They are very quiet, ride very smoothly and soak up bumps well. I encounterd glare ice recently and they gripped and kept me going straight; they even gripped enough to brake without losing traction. I was impressed as considering it was so slippery that other cars were stopped on the shoulder of the road, but I had enought...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

We were so impressed with our first set of Altimax RT43 tires that we purchased another for our Jetta TDI. The car is mostly driven by my wife 120 miles/day commuting to work. With the winter we've had so far we've had little snow to deal with but again these tires didn't disappoint. Traction is great in the snow when combined to the TDI's DSG transmission....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

Fun Tires!! I was able to drive in 4- 5 inches of snow and the traction is just amazing. It's hard to brake the tires loose. I had to find a empty parking lot and turn off traction control. The tires also feel great on the dry or wet roads. If your looking for a great high performance snow winter tire I would strongly recommend. Let it snow!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Very impressive. I've had these, Firestone Winterforce, and Blizzak WS-80's. The overriding plus is great slush and ice traction, coupled with a quiet highway road. It's hard to rate absolute performance vs. the WS-80's, since these are on the FWD Focus while my WS-80's are on the beastly (in the snow) AWD Subaru. But in braking and cornering, and general...  Read More
