Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport AS

The tires were OEM with my Subaru OB. With proper care, as a few people have noted, I've gotten 43K on them, with a 60/40 highway to city driving mix. They are rated to 40k. They are not off-road, or snow tires. They have been for me, a good quality tire and it does what it claims. I'm buying another set to replace them next week. How you drive also, effects...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Any RDX owners out there know that this is a noisy CUV/whatever-they-call-it. When I bought the car last October it had mismatched off-brand tires and anything but the smoothest road felt like a washboard. Although I normally take a more performance-oriented approach to researching tires, I figured this time around I'd look for something that smooths out the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

This is an upgrade on a Chevrolet one ton van 8lug wheel. Original tires were Bridgestone and they were the hardest riding tire. Additionally I wanted to add the six spoke Chevrolet aluminum rims which are 17x7.5 vs the stock 16x6.5. I drive this van usually lightly loaded if not empty. Therefore I wanted a tire with a lower aspect ratio for improved...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Great snow tires! I used this set for 3 winters here in Colorado and then left them on for the summer of 2016. After 32,000 miles they still had 5/32 tread depth. I just took them off to install a new set of DMV-2s. Great traction in all conditions. My wife and I took an ice driving lesson on one of the frozen lakes near us last winter and the instructors...  Read More

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

These tires replaced the original Bridgestone Potenza's (high performance, summer) that came with the G37. They are a noticeable step up in performance, primarily in the wet, compared to the Bridgestones. They are also quieter, though that may not be an accurate comparison as the Bridgestones were at the end of their life compared to the new Michelin's. This...  Read More

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

Finally threw my second set of 4 Bridgestone Turanza EL4 run flat in the dumpster that were nor completely worn. I just could not take the noise and harsh ride any longer.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The Pilots are vast improvement over the factory Potenza run-flats. I made the switch to conventional tires with some trepidation.

Traction is phenomenal, directional stability is improved and general...  Read More

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

I bought this set to replace my original factory Bridgestone RE97AS. Those were very noisy, horrible rain traction and wore uneven. I put this set of Michelins on my car at 60,500. They come with 10/32 tread new and I now have 7/32 tread with my car having 100,852 miles. These tires are wearing even, very low noise and the traction is unbelievable on wet or...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport AS

These are OEM tyres, they have a 40,000 miles treadware life from the manufacturer. Now after 4 years and 53,000+ miles of driving on them I am looking to replace them. I'm deciding on getting run-flat tyres and longer tread ware from bridgestone. I don't really care about noise,comfort or anything else. If you want things to last, you take care of them....  Read More
