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 Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

Amazing tread life!!!! 133,000 miles on one set of tires. Unbelievable. Buying another set. I drive 80,000 miles a year for business and tread life is very important to me. Love these tires so much that I won't gamble on testing another set.   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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I replaced my original bridgestone insignia tires with continental true contact at around 53K miles in my 2011 corolla. I bought these tire after reading very good reviews at tire rack and couple of other sites. Price is also reasonable as compare to competitors. After putting 2000 miles on these tires and driving in both dry and wet conditions I am happy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I was looking for a decent tire for my daily driver that occasionally sees a track and canyons. I initially was going to go the tried and true Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Glancing over the TireRack website I see a tire I have never seen before, the Indy 500. I was attracted to the tread design and the specs was what I was looking for. Better yet they were...  Read More

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

On my 2016 Honda CRV, I replaced my OEM Continental tires with these Bridgestone Dueler 422 Ecopia in the same 225/65/17 size. The Ecopia tires are much more compliant (aka softer feeling over bumps) at my preferred 38psi. I can also feel less rolling resistance with these tires. They also have more grip, less sidewall flex and are much quieter than the...  Read More

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

Recently bought these for my 2003 G35 coupe w sports package/6-speed manual. On a trip to Tennessee through lots of amazing backroads and these tires wouldn't give up. Great handling, good feedback, quiet enough and decent ride for the handling prowess. Could not get over how good they were. Added bonus is that wet traction seems to be quite good. Strongly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Have had two sets of Pilot Super Sports on my E90 and have been very pleased. The dry grip is tremendous, the wet grip is very good, and they even perform reasonably well when it gets cold (but no snow). I have a dedicated set of winter tires so these are on the car from April to November. I've gotten three solid summers out of them and they still have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

4 years and almost 45k miles on my Speed3 and they'll do anything I ask of them except ice and snow. I don't care about that. Absolutely awesome in the Seattle rain and deep puddles. I've never felt out of control in any hard rain situation. Great 3 season tire. Would buy this series again soon. I still have 1/4 of tread left. They are getting a little noisy...  Read More

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

These tires perform as week as they did when they were new. I have 8/32s tread depth on all for corners. When they were installed I immediately notice a 10% increase in gas mileage. The ride quality and noise were great and only the ride quality has fallen a little due to the decrease in tread depth. I take this car all over the USA from Wisconsin to South...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS

This tire came OEM on my 2016 VW GTI. Would buy them again. Car tracks perfect with them, they balance nice, handle nice. I drove in a rain storm where I could hardly see the cars ahead with no hydroplanning. Have noticed no tire noise out of the ordinary. They come in a current great price at $87 at Tire Rack in my size. I have only 3K on mine, but based on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS

Got just over 30k miles on this tire. I was very impressed with these initially. They felt a bit softer than the ultra High performance OEM tire but that was expected for a touring tire. Generally they gave me best of both worlds, performance and ride quality. My biggest disappointment is the tread wear. According to my dealer the fronts are at 3/32 and the...  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 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

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 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 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 Blizzak DM-V2

This set of Blizzard was installed 1 day before the only big snow storm in New York. After city snow removal, my van was buied in a 4 foot of packed snow/ice mixture. Took me 10 minutes to cleared my driver door entrance only, I was able to drove the van out of my spot. I only had 1 foot of spare room in front & behind my van. My neighbors were shocked to...  Read More
