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 Kumho Ecsta 4X II

I love this tire ... on this car. It's actually my wife's car, but since she doesn't commute anymore, it's there for both of us. The OEM tires survived for about 50k miles, but they were puncture magnets and finally, when I found a screw imbeded in the tread about an inch from a previous plug, I decided to swap them out. I have to admit I chose the Kumhos...  Read More

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

I bought these tires for my Infiniti G37. Love them they are one of the best-looking tires I have seen. They look very aggressive perfect for a sports car. Treadwear is even I rotate every time I get an oil change. I am curious to see if they last for claimed 45,000 miles like the warranty says. They are a great overall tire I would buy them again for sure!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I installed these on my Jeep Wrangler Sport (model yr 2004) after the Mickey Thompson Bajas wore out in under 10k!. The Scorpions lasted me approximately 25,000 miles until I replaced them for a new set. I used to deflate down to 10-13 psi and do hardcore dune bashing in the desert, and re-inflated back up to 35 psi once all the fun was done with. They...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I daily drive my 2000 Miata during the winter months here in Virginia. We get 3 or 4 good snows a year. I bought these tires 2 years ago for around 230$ shipped and have loved every second of driving on them.In the snow the first year they had so much grip, with a little weight in the back of the car I was driving picking up people to carry to work in about...  Read More

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

Best tire I have ever owned! I am a freak about reading reviews and shopping before I buy. I would have bought the Continentals instead had I not seen a few new reviews right before I purchased. Those pearls of wisdom led me to the right tire for my car. I know this may sound like an infommercial but I swear these have been the quietest, smoothest, best...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (H- or V-Speed Rated)

So I replaced my Hankook 16 inch Run Flats that came standard on the car when I bought it in 2014 with these Goodyear All Seasons. What a huge difference these All Seasons are compared to the Run Flats. I will never buy another set of Run Flats again (I guess, other than if they come standard on a new Mini and I have no other option). The Run Flats have a...  Read More

Are My Tires Too Old?

How old is too old is an oft-asked question. While the industry guidelines say six years in use or 10 years from build, your experience can vary. The life span you see from any tire can vary greatly depending on how it is used. For example, counter to common belief, an infrequently used tire actually lives a harder life than one that is exercised on a...  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 Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Replaced the runflat tires on my car with these. Never looked back. It's quite good improvement compared to the old version and that one was already very good. This one has great traction in all sorts of conditions dry, wet, snow, ice. Cornering stability is a bit weak, but not sure if that's due to my heavy car or the tire. It's noisy on concrete, but I...  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 Continental TrueContact

We have the 50MPG Cruze diesel and drive about 100 miles min rt to work everyday. I have always done my homework when buying tires so rarely am I surprised at the results I receive and I have been driving for almost 40 years. These are quite possibly the best tires I have ever owned. The car came with Goodyears as OEM and they were good tires. We got 60K...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Best tire I have ever had on this car. I am in a car club here in Va. We go on long rides through the mountains , high speed curves , never had any corning problems . These tires are maid for performance cars not front wheel drive granny cars. Getting ready to buy another set. Great tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I up grated my wheels from stock 16 wheels to 17 '04 STI BBS wheels. I was driving on Continental DWS. They were great tires and I have bumped them as my reserve winter tire, not much snow in Alabama but just in case. I have yet to test the tires in the wet as it has not rained thus NA atm. Will update when I get the opportunity. I was debating between these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (H- or V-Speed Rated)

After buying them in Jan. 2014, I've been trying to be more attentive about them--pressure, alignment, etc. 45K later, they still have 7/32 left in April 2016. After finding out that Tire Rack existed and reading reviews on them, it was nice to see I inadvertently bought a higher quality tire. I've read other peoples reviews about them wearing out quickly,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

There is not enough to say about these tires, this is the tire you should buy. I drive on the highway 5days a week for work and try to spend as much time as I can outdoors on the weekends. Tires are quiet on the highway, but with the quality of a Ford Escape, you're still going to hear road noise. My use on the weekends would involve fishing, hunting,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I usually buy Michelin tires, but this is my first set of Continentals. So far I have found these tires meet all of my criteria. Extremely good handling in both wet and dry conditions. They are very quiet. Very good braking performance. Competitively priced. Does it sound I'm happy with this choice - yes I am! I will update the review, including wear factors...  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
