I replaced the original Bridgestone run flat tires and immediately noticed a huge improvement in steering response, softer ride comfort, and cornering. I highly recommend these tires. I will never go back to run flat tires.

An excellent tire for all of my driving experiences. I have found the Michelin Super Sport tires to be the best tires for my Saab 9-3 Viggen.since purchasing the vehicle in 1999. The present mileage of the Viggen is 152k since new. I have previously had Dunlop, Bridgestone & Continental Tires on the Viggen since 1999 and the Micheline tires have out performed all of the previous tires by a substantial amount.

I bought these off a recommendation from fellow BMWCCA members as well as the other Tire Rack reviews. Let me start off by saying that these made it a completely different car! I'd had the Bridgestone RE050A Pole Positions on my stock 19" wheels, and combining those with my Hawk Blue brake pads at the track, I was constantly outbraking my tires. Now that I've changed to square sizes, as well as switched to the Michelin, I'm getting faster lap times, and finding a lot more grip into the corners. I've got one track weekend and about 2500 miles on these so far, and I'm super impressed!

I purchased this tire after I ruined a set of Dunlops by mistake. I used to be a dedicated Bridgestone before buying the Dunlop just to save a few dollars. Bad mistake. Anyways onto the review of this tire. Simply put, best Bridgestone tire I have ever owned. This tire is listed as a summer tire but I have used them in snow and had no trouble at all. It performed just as good as my all season tires I have owned. The dry and wet grip is outstanding. I have yet to make these tires squeal going around a high speed corner. As for the wet grip it is just like the dry grip, only way you can tell you are driving on wet asphalt is if its still raining. As with all tires there is going to be tire noise but for me the level of noise is almost non existent. I can't say too much about ride comfort with these being low profile tires but I can say they are better than my previous tires were. I can say for sure that as long as I have this car and Bridgestone makes this tire it will be my tire I buy when I need tires. I would recommend this tire for anyone with a spirited driving attitude and even if you live in the snow belt like I do, it's simple, if there is snow on the road slow down and these tires will do just fine for you. After I get more miles on them I will do a follow up review but as of right now I don't see anything changing about how I feel about these tires. Like I said earlier best tires I have ever owned, period.

The Primacy is my first Michelin tire ever owned (I am 65)and the best tire I have ever owned. My OEM Bridgestone Turanza EL400's wore out in 8,500 miles. My Primacys now have 61,000 miles on them and are at 4/32 tread depth ..... treadwear indicators still not showing but I will be replacing them soon with another set of Primacys. If I drove them to the treadwear indicators, I'd probably get 70,000 miles out of them. Quiet tire with great traction and superior handling.

Initial Review, 30,000 Miles on Tires
July 02, 2014

I autocross (but not in this car) so I am on the extreme end of spirited driving.

The Ecopias have great performance on dry and wet pavement and feel more like a performance summer tire. The sidewalls are extremely stiff so steering responsiveness and cornering stability is guaranteed. The con to the stiff sidewalls is that the tires are pretty noisy and can be bumpy if you drive a lot on poor roads. It iced over for a day last year and the tires did a little less than OK. The Ecopias had about 40% tread left when they were used in the icy conditions.

Traction in wet and dry conditions have stayed fairly constant throughout the tires life. I have about 1/16" to the wear bars now and the tires are just now starting to hydroplane in moderately wet conditions. These are the most consistent tires I have ever owned.

I was hoping to get 40,000 miles out of the tires, but I will be lucky to get 35,000 miles. A normal driver will be able to get much more mileage, but I think it would be tough to get the rated mileage out of them.

The tires feel the best with 35-37 psi cold and did have a 1.5 mpg average increase over my last set of tires (Dunlop Direzza Star Specs). These tires have pleasantly surprised me.

This is my initial review after 500 miles. So far, these tires are quiet, ride smoothly, and appear to handle well in both wet and dry conditions. They are an upgrade from the stock Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400 tires and complement the high performance nature of the Forester XT turbo nicely. If anything, they make the car feel more solid and luxurious, given the quiet and refined ride. Steering response is better as well. They are expensive, but worth it. I look forward to trying them in the snow next winter and will update my review then.

I am now on my 3rd set of these tires (AS/2 prior). These are an excellent balance between high performance and all-season. They last 3 times longer than the stock Bridgestone Potenza S-02 tires, with only s marginal difference in high performance dry driving.

Highly recommended for any S2K driver looking for great performance and longer life.

I drove three Winter seasons on my Blizzak DM-V1s. I kept them at the factory recommended 33 PSI cold inflation pressure. I'm not much of a speeder, but I tend to take what my nephews call "high-G" turns. I tow a boat and trailer that weigh slightly less than 3,000 pounds all Winter; if it's above freezing and I can get on the water somewhere, I go. I've used Blizzaks on several different vehicles and am always impressed by how well they work in snow and on ice. As expected, they feel softer than Summer tires and even slightly "greasy" on warm roads. The shoulder blocks wore fairly quickly on the tires. I began to see the hard base layer underneath the softer tread layer at the beginning of the third season. However, they performed fine, even when backing the boat trailer down a roughly paved boat launch ramp covered by six inches of damp snow and ice. My only complaint is that they make quite a bit of tread noise. But, hey, the aggressive tread is what makes them work so well in deep snow. I'll probably buy another set, since they're the only tires available for my OEM wheels, but I'm not disappointed by that.

A lot of compliments came from my relatives when they drove my car. They said this one is way more comfortable, whether as passenger or when they were the driver that they feel ease of driving. No more humming noise, unlike the former set of tire (Bridgestone B-250 185/65/R15).

Once upon a time, I was in a hurry, and was in a heavy rain, there was an inch depth of rain water pool on the highway road surface, I was running at 90-95mph, no hydroplaning felt, just like simply cutting right through it. The quality is way above its price.

Replaced 4 Michelins with these tires, did not think I would like them better, but I did. Took them up on a 700 mi round trip, in the storm on a weekend ski trip. Traction going up and back on dry road was confident inspiring. Handling in the snow and night icy road to help a friend with a stuck car was great, and I drove a lot of tires on snow over the years. I would heartily recommend this tire!

Buy this tire. Nuff said. I had the OEM Pirelli P zeron Nero's, then the Bridgestone RE970's, and then these. 110K on my car now. These are my favorites for sure; don't understand why they are less than the 970's, because I think they're better, but I love it. Just placed an order for another set now that mine are down to 3/32nds. Some of the grippiest in wet/dry I've had, as well as the absolute quietest tires I've ever had.

Is the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 Building a Lasting Legacy?

Wednesday, June 18, 2014 by Tire Rack Team

This past weekend the sports world saw two champions add to their legacy. The new U.S. Open champion added another major title to his resume, and the San Antonio Spurs won their fifth N.B.A. title since 1999. There’s something to be said about consistently being on top – a place that’s familiar to the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2.

Since its premiere in our survey results back in February 2013, the tire has only known one spot: on top. It has been the top-ranked tire in the Ultra High Performance Summer category because it receives high marks in several areas: hydroplaning resistance, cornering stability and dry traction.

Honed by decades of BFGoodrich g-Force racing where success on the street begins with winning on the track, the tire is used by the Ford Racing High Performance Driving School at Miller Motorsports and Skip Barber Racing for their schools and race series. With racing technology successes incorporated into its design, the g-Force Sport COMP-2 delivers sharp steering response along with wet and dry grip without sacrificing treadwear.

“Accelerate faster. Corner harder. Brake shorter.” This bold statement from BFGoodrich was what we were to expect from the tire when we received it for testing back in July 2012. It definitely impressed! During our time with the tire, it delivered impressive traction, especially in the wet. We determined that it is a very capable Ultra High Performance Summer tire that was ranked first, as it beat out the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport, Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500 and Yokohama S. drive.

What will the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2’s legacy be when all is said and done? With 17 straight months in first place, it appears it will be go down as one of the best Ultra High Performance Summer tires.

When you buy a set of four BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 tires before July 12, you can receive a $70 MasterCard Reward Card.

Really nice set of tires. They are incredibly sticky and really saved my ------- during some emergency maneuvers. The noise levels aren't that bad, but you won't confuse them with a quiet luxury tire. They are very confidence inspiring in the rain and transform even the most mundane people hauler into a back-road hero.

These are the best tire I have ever bought. Period! They are far superior to the Bridgestone RTFs and the --- awful Yokohama S-Drives. I felt I was driving a semi with the Yoko's. They were so loud and rode terrible. The PS2's grip in the dry and wet like nobodies business. They ride very nice and are amazingly quiet. I'll get these from now on.
