Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

For the limited amount of bad weather that we had last year these tires I felt out performed the Michelin Ice/X tires I had on in previous years. I will be putting these on after Thanksgiving and see how they perform this winter, so far so good.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Fantastic tire and with out a doubt the best tires I have purchased for this vehicle. I have gone through Bridgestone 46k miles. BFG 35k miles, Falken 15k miles. These tires have about 10k miles on them and I still have 10/32 tread, at this rate I should see about 80k before they get to 3/32. These tires are also great in the wet and handle highway speeds...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PS31

With a thousand miles I'm still enamored that all tires match. I purchased the car with 17,669 miles on it along with Dunlop's on the fronts and Bridgestone on the rears. Fronts probably original, rears replaced. Had some curb rash repaired, the rims refinished and tires mounted at the same place for under $800.00. So far I've been on the LA frwys on 100...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

I love to drive in the snow now. I couldn't wait until the first snow fall in Chicago. They don't plow and salt the side streets right away, so it was a great opportunity to test these tires out. These tires perform very well in snow 3-9 or more inches. I have a low profile front end which catches the snow and slows my momentum. But I had confidence that I...  Read More

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

Simply the best Autocross tire available with phenomenal dry grip once they are hot. Traction is pretty good in the wet on Autox though it's best to not drive them on the highway in the wet. The rubber is extremely soft - equivalent to a race compound. The added traction can give a good autocross driver a second or two off their times. Wear is high - I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

These tires are hands down the best in all around performance that I have experienced with this vehicle. The ride is smooth, with superior cornering and steering response, and very little cabin noise. The car glides through tight corners with virtually no body roll, excellent acceleration on straight runs, and a great ride response to the pavement. Many...  Read More

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

My experience is autoX and road/track events (HPDE, HSAX, etc), as well as extremely spirited around town driving. My S2000 is modified for SCCA's STR class, and has basic bolt-ons, coilovers, front sway bar. Running -2.2* camber.These tires are the fastest, grippiest street tire on the market (Q3-2016). Only way to get more grip or performance is to go to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

Recently purchased these tires primarily on Tirerack's test and performance reviews. Previously had Bridgestone S 04's but mileage was abysmal(15,000 miles) and given the cool weather that North Carolina can experience, I was often reluctant to take my Jag out on the road in the winter with maximum performance tires. Still breaking these tires in but am...  Read More

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

An update sooner than intended... '13 Mustang GT Convertible, Brembo package, Bilstein shocks/struts, 40 psi cold front, 38 psi cold... of course when they warm up the pressure increases 2-3 PSI.Took a 50 mile long backroad home today around one of my favorite roads...128 on the south side of Lake Berryessa, then into Fairfield. 55 mph speed limit, 20 mph to...  Read More

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

I spent a month on the Tire Rack website for my new to me Tahoe. It already had Bridgestone tires on it and I bought this vehicle from a friend. No complaints from him on the last set. Boy did I make a great decision at this point. Even thought they are just slightly noisy, they have performed better than expected. I made it through winter with no issues in...  Read More

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

Long time listener, first time caller. I've used tire rack to support my tire purchasing decisions and as a way to promote vehicle safety to family and colleagues for years.When it came time to replace the OE tires (Dunlop Sport SP 01 A/S) on my daily driver, I did a considerable amount of research including talking with the experts here at TR. I enjoy...  Read More

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

Fantastic tire, precise, quiet, comfortable and just simply great handling. It provides great feedback without ever being noisy or harsh. Fantastic grip, on both, dry and wet conditions.Wears really fast, although that's to be expected given their UTQG rating and the fact I never try to change my driving style to protect them from wear. I'm about to purchase...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I absolutely love these tires. I've been buying them for 4+ years now and hugely prefer them over the Pilot Super Sports. You can't get better grip then what these tires give you. When I'm buying tires, I'm only looking for dry weather performance. These aren't bad in the rain by any means, but I take it really easy when the roads are wet so I don't want to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

smooth, quiet, comfortable. really good handling/control in wet weather and decent in dry for an all-season RFT. would say this is the best RFT I have had any experience with. own a 2015 BMW 328i sport wagon with M sport package and Bridgestone max performance RFT...which are also very nice for RFT's. also own a 2015 BMW 428i with Pirelli RFT's that are very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Not cheap; but appears to be an excellent value for the money. Ride is quiet and really smooth. Less noise than I experienced on the LTX M/S and LTX M/S2 that I put on my '03 Expedition. These are on my daughter's'06 Pacifica, which is a much lighter vehicle. It's really too early to judge; but treadwear is not noticeable after 5K miles. Wet and Dry Handling...  Read More

Potenza RE-11 Positioned for Long Run at the Top

There’s no doubt temperatures around the country are at summer time highs. This time of the year is great for cookouts, hanging by the pool…and pushing your car’s traction and handling levels. And no tire is better suited for that in our Extreme Performance Summer category right now than the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11. Currently ranked the top tire in its...  Read More
