Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

My C63 AMG has a tune that boosts it from 450HP to around 525HP at the flywheel. I came from Michelin Pilot Super Sports, which are fantastic tires, but there's just no comparison... the Michelins aren't even close. This particular car is quite under-tired in the rear, which makes it very tail happy. Even though I'm running the same factory-specified tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

The greatest upgrade for a car in winter, period. For the longest time I swore by ultra high performance all-season tires, and simply accepted the sliding, and fishtailing as part of normal operation in winter. I was convinced I needed an AWD vehicle to brave the heavier snow. Getting these tires however has completely changed my opinion on it however.The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

These tires are so much better than the OE Goodyears. Much quieter, better ride, better traction, everything. I'm not afraid to brake late on a corner because I'm confident the car will stick. These tires have put the enjoyment back into driving my Vette!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Only recently put these on however the car is quieter and more stable than the bridgestones that were on there when I bought the car. Impressed so far will continue to monitor tread wear and see how they do in the small amount of snow we get here in the lower mainland of BC   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I had to write a review because I read another review that said the tire's sidewall is not still. Sorry, it is. Yes, these are on a legacy 3.6R, but I've had EVO VIII and G35 coupe. I've had Advan's, Michelin Pilot Super Sport, and I've had Bridgestone RE050A.These tires are as stiff as the Bridgestones, they have a wide tread (more square than most), and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I bought these tires since I needed a better grip. I am running over 369 lb/ft torque at the rear wheels(434 lb/ft crank) and needed something that will hold the power so I decided to go with 265 wide. Well those things have just insane amount of grip. When warm they just don't brake traction in first gear and my car even feels under-powered. They are very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Last winter I was using Bridgestone Insignia 200 all-season tires. They were OK with 150# ballast in the trunk but ice was still very difficult to manage.I decided to try the Blazzak this season since the all-seasons were about half worn down. On snow pack roads these tires feel as if I am on a dirt road in summer! On ice, well that's ice but you do have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

After 36000 uneventful miles on an off-brand tire (Capital UHP 245/45/18) that came on my '08 G8 GT when I purchased it two years ago from a dealership, I didn't know what to expect from the Bridgestone Potenza S04 Pole Position tires. Let me sum it all up by saying that I liked my car a lot before changing to these tires, but now I love driving it! The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

All of my ratings are for driving the Odyssey moderately, not like a sports car. How else do you drive a minivan full of people ? My daily driver is an Acura RSX Type S, the minivan for my wife and I drive occasionally. The important qualities for a minivan are tread wear, ride comfort, wet traction in the rain, and steering response. It was great for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak W965

Best winter tires apart from studded. I live in Michigan and drove home to New Brunswick Canada (20 hours) every holiday season so there is loads of snow to get through and these allow my little car to get there safely and comfortably.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I wasn't sure about this tire when I bought it, but the day I got them put on we had a nasty winter storm that covered pretty much all of the north east and I had to travel during the worst of it. At no point was I worried about the conditions because these tires plow through. I also use my car to drive off road in delivering grain and have had no problem...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

Live in Green Bay, WI. We get enough snow here. I purchased two of these for the front of my Civic. AMAZING! These tires can make any car fun to drive in the snow. Definitely reccommend to anyone looking for a winter tire. No more getting stuck for this import...   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

Remarkable tire. Ecopia's are very quiet, look good on car, and MPH is better. I was very skeptical about MPG, but after 600 miles it is 1 – 1.5 gallon better then on BFGooddrich Long Trail. New tires much softer, so ride quality improved from "sportish" into "limo" kind of ride and I love it. Perfect tire for Murano, if you want comfortable very quiet ride....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

I was apprenhensive about these tires when shopping. They have good reviews, but I had doubts. I had less than three years and 30,000 miles on a set of Michelin Latitude Tour HPs, and they were like driving on stones. I thought I had suspension problems, and I had recently refreshed all of the suspension parts. With 86,000 miles on this XC70, these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

These tires...oh these tires are out of this world! Responsiveness in wet and dry conditions is amazing. Hugging turns going 80 mph, doesn't even feel like I'm turning. Now I must admit, I work for the company who sells these, BUT I am the first one to be skeptical of anything on my car. As a principle I do not purchase tires with less than a 70k mileage...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

I like these well enough to buy another set. They're much better than the OEM Continentals the car came with. Those only lasted for 19K miles, and that with having to replace three of them after hitting potholes in Boston--pretty weak. The 970's feel solid, hang in the corners and do pretty well in the snow. They were pretty quiet up till 35K miles, but now...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

These tires are a wonderful improvement over the Goodyear Assurance original equipment, which we replaced after 30,000 miles due to thinning tread and increasing noise. Night and day difference; much improved ride quality, much lower (almost silent) road noise, and significantly improved turn in response with crisp handling on both dry and wet pavement.The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Just replaced a set of Continential RFT's on my 528. I got about 40K out of the Conti's and was pleased, but the ride was a bit harsh for a bmw. These tires are amazing. It drives exactly what I was hoping for. While only 100 miles on the new set, its like night and day compared to the Continental RFT's. They look great and the ride finally drives like a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP

These are amazing run flats. They have completely changed my enjoyment of my car. Handles better ,with amazingly improved ride quality. The original Bridgestone Potenzas were so harsh, I would bounce on any raod that wasn't perfectly smooth.The difference was noticible immediately. I actually checked the tires to make sure the shop actually sold me the zero...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/T D687

OEM tire that came with the RAV4, this lasted about 40k through many NY/NJ/PA potholes and a lot of random nails and such on the streets of the city. Commuting 50-70 miles a day plus long family trips, no real worries and it held up okay, though noisy and wore down while on the RAV4 (I partially blame that on the Toyota dealership where it's free service...  Read More
