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

At long last, I've found my tire: an ultra high performance all-season tire that optimizes the performance of Audi's Quattro AWD on trips to the mountains, without numbing the car's handling and steering response on the dry roads that dominate daily driving here in LA. I've only had the Michelins a couple weeks, but immediately took them on a 1,000 mile road...  Read More

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

I have only driven these on dry days(only time I take my car out). But they are amazing so far. I have a full exhaust on my air cooled 911 so the car is noisy itself. I don't hear any tire noise. I'm coming off Continental sport contact tires and these blow them out of the water in terms of grip. I can't seem to break the rear end loose anymore even pushing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A

These tires were the original tires on my Z . It's nit my daily driver but when I do drive her I don't baby it. My commute to work is 65 miles one way and half of them are on twisty roads love the grip and stopping characteristics of the tire. Would not consider any other tires,   Read More

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

I purchased these tires after reading the online reviews about this tire and I have been nothing but impressed so far. These tires are replacing a set of Bridgestone Potenza RE 970 UHP (235/45 WR 17) tires for my 05 Acura TL with the 6 speed manual transmission. I have only had them for 1,700 miles so far but they have been a noticeable improvement over the...  Read More

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

I bought these tires to keep up with my friends focus ST on back roads and mountain roads. The amount of grip versus the tires I had on before is incredible. Road noise is tolirable, not too bad unless I had the back seats out. Really likes to stick to Little Rock's and pebbles and kick them up so you might hear that. It completely enhanced the entire...  Read More

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

I had this tired for about 4 months now and all I can say is they perform extremely well in the dry vs my all season stock tires and even perform well in the wet as well. A lot more grip vs my all season tires but rides a little harsher but that a trade off and can also that I have upgrade coil overs as well. So far they are great tires but I do notice maybe...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

I have a staggered set up on this vehicle (245/35/19F-275/30/19R) and they have provided the best bang for the buck for daily driving of any other brands that I have ever purchase. I do not race the vehicle so I cannot comment on that aspect of driving. Bridgestone has discontinuing this model and I truly think that they will regret they did.   Read More

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

Mixed feelings about this tire. 1st off I mainly track the car and drive it there with these same tires. Man does this tire grip. It's also very responsive with great feedback. I was able to out corner way better cars than mine because of the tire, complete transformation. The downside is they wear really fast. 3 track days and 3500 miles and they are...  Read More

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

Had Michelin PSS for 18,000 miles. They were down to wear bars. Replaced with Pole Positions. Fabulousvride, low noise considering Max performance summer rubber. Overall handling is 95% as good as PSS. Wet traction is better than PSS, and ride quality is same or better. Car handles and tracks perfectly. Running factory psi specs of 35/36. Wear rate at 1,700...  Read More

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

Tires certainly are a big step over the all seasons. The increase in overall grip is huge, the suspension really has to work to hold on now. My only complaint is a big of mushiness on turn in. That sharp responsiveness to small inputs that first wowed me with this car has been lessened a bit. That being said though, once these tires settle into a corner,...  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 Super Sport

The Pilots are vast improvement over the factory Potenza run-flats. I made the switch to conventional tires with some trepidation. I have a compressor and plug kit in the trunk, which hopefully will get me home in a pinch. These tires have transformed the car to much more pleasant ride. Traction is phenomenal, directional stability is improved and general...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

First impression: nothing special on dry/wet. Can not comment on stability - got this 2 sizes narrower one size smaller rim and one size taller side wall than standard... Light snow ... nothing special, better breaking than forward tractionHeavy snow: Holly...! yesterday we got several inches, but it was impressive when, without any shoveling, i got out from...  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

225/50/16 Installed on r32 Skyline GTR wheels. 16x8. No limited slip differential yet. No turbo. Riding on Powertrix coilovers. 9kg/mm front. 7kg/mm rear. Great tires! A bit heavier but Just solid feeling, stable through corners. Strong sidewall; hard to tell when tires are flat.Dry traction is great. Wet traction is actually pretty descent especially when...  Read More

Amazing tires I love the response you get from these tires much better that BFG rivals. The cornering ability is unmatched in street tires. The auto cross ability of these tires is unbelievable.   Read More

This first review is for TireRack. I ordered the tires by phone on Friday at about 11 am, Pacific Time. I was away from my house most of Saturday, the NEXT DAY, and when I returned, the tires were in my garage! Had them mounted and balanced this morning and drove to work..I was changing from the OE Goodyear F1 SuperCar tires. They had 40,000 miles (I avoid...  Read More
