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

I am About to buy my 3rd set of rears. I am getting about 12000 miles on a set of rears and will get about 36000 on the fronts. I drive my car hard and these tires are rock solid in the corners. The ride and noise are fine. They are great in wet and dry never losing traction or ever having broken loose. The only time I had issue was during a drive to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60 RFT

All statements made are COMPARED TO STOCK TIRES, in winter driving conditions. In snow and ice, these tires are drastically different than stock. They allow you to take off a bit quicker, turn a bit faster, and stop a bit shorter. They handle very much like worn stock tires on damp roads, if that makes sense. If you drive in the winter on these, and expect...  Read More

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

These tires replaced OEM tires for me. Got them from tirerack.com. I've noticed a huge improvement in smoothness and road noise from mile 1 with them. I have driven about 19,000 miles on them so far. In fact, these are a big step up from the OEM Goodyears in every way except one -- treadwear. That has been surprising given their rating. I got 37,000 miles on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I was apprehensive at first about purchasing these tires. I really liked the performance of the OEM Bridgestones and was leaning that way, but after reading The Tire Racks comparison test I pulled the trigger on the Pilot Super Sports. I have to say that these tires have exceeded my expectations in every way. Most of my miles are logged on the highway at 70...  Read More

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

I bought this set of Bridgestones initially just on the tread design. I'll admit I had low expectations based on the low performance of the Potenzas that come stock in many cars. They wear fast, have non-aggresive tread design, and are generally under-performing tires. However, the S04s are so much better than those, that I don't know why they even badge...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

California driving with many long highway trips from SoCal to Mammoth for skiing and fishing. Blizzak's are meant for cold-weather only, but they lasted quite well in the much warmer, SoCal environment. (I was hoping for 40K miles and almost made it...3 of the 4 tires would have made it, but I changed out the set when one went low-tread at 38K.) I drove in 3...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Excellent tire. I pushed the limits, on private off roads, with hazardous conditions. Deep snow, packed snow and ice. Ice was decent for not being studded. Never disappointed me. There a little rough on the highway, but not bad at all. Tread wear is good for a snow tire. I have about 16,000 miles on them and they still have decent sipping. Probably good for...  Read More

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

Do you want to go fast in an SCCA Solo class requiring 200TW tires? If you do, then buy this tire if it fits on your car. These are simply the best tires for autocrossing you can buy this year for SCCA CAM, Street or Street Touring classes. I have a set mounted on 10.5 inch rims on my Mustang competing in the CAM-C class. Pretty much everyone driving...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I purchased the Bridgestone Driveguard tires in fall 2014 to replace the OEM Continental's. While there are only 9k miles on the tires, they are wearing well, noise levels are relatively quiet (for RFTs), and handling is comparable to the OEM tires. I would definitely consider buying these tires again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-32

Cleveland, Ohio.Switched to dedicated snow tires years ago. I have had 3 cars in that time and every single one was fitted with dedicated wheels with Blizzaks on them. I had the WS70's, and the WS80's on my most recent 2013 Honda Accord. It handled better than most 4 wheel drive Jeeps I know. I recently turned in that lease and will be buying WS80's for my...  Read More

What to Buy When the Michelin Pilot Super Sport is Backordered

The Michelin Pilot Super Sport is an outstanding tire. It combines top-tier wet and dry traction with responsive handling, making it a benchmark in the Max Performance Summer category. Unfortunately, it has been out of stock in many sizes this summer. So what do you do if the Super Sport has an indefinite backorder in your size? It depends on why you wanted...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I can't contest for the mileage yet as I just purchased these less than 1000 miles ago. As for every other aspect of this tire,,,,,, WOW, I've owned winter specific tires in the past (Bridgestone's WS60, Firestone's and Dunlop's)The Bridgestone's were hands down a superior tire over the Dunlop's and Firestone's. But these Pirelli's have changed my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

These tires are awesome! Like having 4 wheel drive. Last two winters were a nightmare with the factory tires. Upgraded to these with a set of rims on recommendation from a friend with a 3 Series, he loves 'em. Have driven in snow and in icy conditions, tried to make them lose traction, had to push it real hard to break them loose. He said they do wear very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

10k on these tires and very happy. Quiet, smooth and MPG's improve over Bridgestone Serenity that were on car. This tire does display just a little groove following on local fwy but most tires do! sharp impacts seem a bit harsh but it may be the car. Buy these tires!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is the second set of Blizzaks I've had for this vehicle and the 6th set of Blizzaks I've had on vehicles I've owned. They are the best snow tires on the market. I drive very aggressively and consistently 5-10 miles over the limit in just about any condition and feel safe. As a hockey parent, coach, player, and ref I must drive in any condition and drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

I needed to buy a set of tires for my mostly stock C5 corvette. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on tires for my weekend ride but I still wanted something with great dry handling. These tires have exceeded my expectations!Dry performance is amazing. These tires grip very well when warmed up for spirited driving. If it drops below 60 degrees, they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I bought these tires for my lady friend's AWD FX45. This car splits its time between New Jersey and Vermont, and traverses between the two every winter. I drive the car frequently. They are terrific tires on the Interstate and on local roads, both paved and unpaved. I am not consciously aware that I am on snow tires when driving on dry roads, but in snow,...  Read More
