Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I do drive city mostly due to my retirement and age--83, but the city street corners are taken well within the handling ability of the R32 and my enjoyment level of owning the best sports car I have ever driven. Local on and off ramps of our interconnecting interstate roads are vigorously attacked and enjoyed with the RE11s-no loss in confidence, whether wet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

I bought these tires and I LOVE them so far. From day 1 the ride in my Benz is super smooth and quiet again after getting rid of the OEM Bridgestone tires. I drive 'somewhat' fast on the interstates and not quite as fast in city driving. So far at 1,500 miles they are super smooth and quiet. I was trucking last weekend on I-65 Southbound at around 98ish and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Thanks to everyone who wrote a review of this tire. As a result of the reviews, I purchased this tire about two months ago. I immediately could feel it grip the road and corner more precisely than the stock tires which came with the car--Bridgestone Turangas. The tires are amazingly quiet especially on concrete freeway surfaces where road noise can be very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Was disappointed in the light winter we had but....Wet, slushy, icy,heavy snow; 10 pm drive home, passing everyone, looked down, 75 mph, felt like 45. Pretty much says it all for a snow tire. Couldn't wait to get 'em off come spring, but performed as advertised and at least 3 more winters in them. Couldn't be more confident driving my car in the winter....  Read More

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

Let me start by stating that I have not autocrossed or tracked my car. I use my car purely for spirited canyon driving, but that was not an option to select.My first set was in oem ap2 sizing (215/245) on oem wheels. My previous two sets of tires were re-11a, and every tire before that was the oem re-050. I now have ~110k miles of driving on the car, with...  Read More

Best All-Season and Snow Tires for Your 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE

Does your Jaguar F-TYPE lie parked in the garage during the winter months just begging to be driven? Even a weekend spin is not advisable with sticky summer tires during cold, wintry conditions.

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

Ratings reflect an average of performance over 39000 miles. Obviously they don't perform as well now as they did with 2000 miles on them. Most amazing thing about the tires is low rolling resistance, which seems to improve with age. I had to reprogram my driving style to allow for the extra roll that I get when I take my foot off the gas. Using a new style...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Thanks other reviewers - I bought these tires to replace OEM Bridgestone RFTs based entirely on the many positive reviews by others. Now, this was a bit of a risk because, while enthusiasm for these tires appeared, at the time, to be universal, only a fraction of the reviews seemed to speak to me personally. I live in Southern California where, from time to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Very happy with these tires. They replaced Bridgestone Potenza RE 70's. The Bridgestones were very noisy, hard riding and wore out in under 20k miles of average driving.Within days of buying the DWS-06's, we drove from Connecticut to Florida and I was very happy I made the change before we left. I went from a car that sounded like it had a bad wheel bearing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Best tires I've ever owned and I've had a wide variety of performance tires on various cars from Nitto, Conti's, Bridgestone's, Pirelli's, and Dunlop's. These tires replaced the stock Bridgestone tires which were average at best. I put these tires on the 370Z 3 days prior to driving to Tail of the Dragon and other various roads in the Smokey Mountains. I...  Read More

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

Had the previous version of this tire the A/S 3. Bought it again because I don't think there is a better tire on the market. For all the nay-sayers about the snow traction...c'mon. This is an ultra high performance all season tire......if you're running them n the snow what do you expect?? I had zero issues with the previous version on the days it snowed in...  Read More

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

With 13k on the tires, they're about halfway to the wear bars. Wear is even side to side. Much better wear than some other report. Rears wearing a bit quicker than the fronts, as to be expected on a slot car twitching tail suspension like a well prepared Z3 suspension behaves like.Z3 has -2.5 camber front, Front toe 0.16 total toe. ~8 degree caster. -2.8...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Initial review. I struggled when picking tires for this vehicle. 2007 Grand Prix GXP. The car has a very tight suspension and is a real performer for a 4 door full size sedan. I was looking for the perfect balance between ride comfort, something quiet, but yet would maintain the sporty attitude of the car. I think this tire does the trick. Road noise was cut...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

These tires have given my Cooper new life. Had Continental RF OEM. They were hard as rocks. Awful. The car was responsive but I could feel a twig on the road. These tires are still responsive and have effectively handled snowmageddon,the Maryland winter, like a pro. I should have bought an entire second set just to store and keep for when the original set...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I have 16K of mixed summer/winter driving on the Continental True Contacts. Winter handling is great in light, medium, and deep snow. Rarely does Traction Control or ABS activate. These are the best all-season winter handling tires I've ever driven on. My previous tires were Bridgestone RE970 AS Pole Position which were amazing in the summer but virtually...  Read More

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

Replaced OEM Dunlop at 25K miles with Ecopia due to bad ride comfort and noise level.Switched to H-rated Ecopia and immediately noticed better and softer ride on bumpy road. Road noise has been significantly reduced as I can listen to radio with volume level 2 even at 70 MPH on highway. I dislike Lexus stiff suspension on RX since I bought the car new. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

I work in the automotive industry and test drive a lot of vehicles. Originally I had the michelin atx tires on it in E load range. I worked for bridgestone at the time and had a GREAT deal on them. I bought them and have loved them. I have a farm in east Texas that has some rock in it but mostly sandy soil and clay with slightly rolling hills. I also have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

I don't really know if I've ever written a review on any product before now. I bought a set of Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza's for my 2003 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner DoubleCab. I just took it in today for my fourth tire rotation with around 20,000 miles now on the tires. (My truck currently has 208,000 miles on it.) I've had several brand name tires on this...  Read More

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

I purchased these tires to run on the front of an H-Street class Honda Civic Si. They were used in a final local event (wet) and the state championship (NCAC) in November which I won and was the highest PAXed FWD car. After two events this year they are already corded about 60 runs total. Wear is horrible on this camber limited car, which does have Honda...  Read More
