Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 Plus (H- or V-Speed Rated)

After 46,320 miles of very aggressive high speed (typically 85 mph) highway and spirited city driving the tire shop says I still have about half the thread left. Tires were worn only on the inside because car was out of allignment. I was going to upgrade to a larger wheel size but with such good thread wear I am buying another set of these OEM tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Living in Minnesota winters have a tendency to be really tough. One day we will have -15 degree temps and it will be nothing but sheer ice, the next day it could be 20 degrees with wet heavy snow. So far the tires have been absolutely phenomenal! When I got them installed to replace the OEM all season Nexen tires I was expecting that the road noise would be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Any RDX owners out there know that this is a noisy CUV/whatever-they-call-it. When I bought the car last October it had mismatched off-brand tires and anything but the smoothest road felt like a washboard. Although I normally take a more performance-oriented approach to researching tires, I figured this time around I'd look for something that smooths out the...  Read More

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

Bought a full set to replace my previous Hankook S1 Noble2's that were worn. The Hankooks when new had great grip and soft ride quality at first, but the tire took a turn for the worse after about 20k miles where it lost any advantage over an inferior tire. The GForces are a completely different tire, I'd start by comparing it to a more rigid summer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

This is my first set of winter tires and also my first year living in a snow climate. I have had very little experience driving in the snow and ice prior to getting these tires. These tires are for my wife's car, so I didn't put the majority of the miles on the tires.What I can say is that I like to push the limits a bit when I am driving in conditions that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Bought these to replace the dreadful Goodyear Assurance's that were on the car when I purchased it. These tires have been great. The traction they have in the rain is unparalleled to any tires I've ever owned. While other's slow down in the rain, I am able to just keep pushing forward, I never feel the least bit unsafe. They really give me a sense of safety....  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 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I bought this set to replace my original factory Bridgestone RE97AS. Those were very noisy, horrible rain traction and wore uneven. I put this set of Michelins on my car at 60,500. They come with 10/32 tread new and I now have 7/32 tread with my car having 100,852 miles. These tires are wearing even, very low noise and the traction is unbelievable on wet or...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek SJ6

I live in the hills of western MA, where we get quite a bit of snow and ice. So I bought these Dunlop Grandtrek SJ6's in P205/70R16 mounted on plain steel 16 wheels for my Crosstrek for winter. They are just a tad taller and narrower than the stock P225/55R17 Yokohamas. No rubbing issues at all, and in the snow, my crosstrek is unstoppable. They are really...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Spec

This is the 6th set of Star Spec's we have run on the Honda Civic. They are the best tire for the road racing we do in the Lemons circuit. Will definitely buy again, as long as the car holds up.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

I purchased those tires because of my dad high recommended to get those tires because of he had all tires on his few cars. Guess what? When I installed with new rims with tires, the ride is so smoothing and comfortable. I would like buying those tires when it time for replace.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z II

I thought these times had a cool look to them and fie the price I was a bit skeptical myself but I will probably buy these times again when the time comes, they hold up great, mostly I just drive sesponsibly and they to stay away from getting anymore tickets... Lol.... But when I want to I drive the -------- out my car and they are great, I think they are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

My Honda EX-L originally came with Michelin Pilots. On my previous car I had General Altimas and was completely satisfied and hoped that the new RT43 would stand up as well. The RT43 seems to be bit harder thus a bit more road noise, but still the best tire all around for safety, handling, traction, comfort, and durability. I can't fault them in any way, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

this tire honestly exceeded my expectations for it. Dry traction is outstanding, the only way to ever get them to break free of the pavment is to punch the throttle hard from a dead stop and even then a couple chirps of skidding rubber and there stuck to the ground again.The Wet traction is way better then I had expected from such a summer looking tread...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

I just but these tires on my bmw 750i. I can not report on tread life at this time, but I can tell you that all my friends and I can not believe the difference in the ride. It is like a different car. Feels like just came off showroom floor. Had Pirelli p-zero on it before. These sumitomo blows the Pirelli out of the water. I am amazed in the difference it...  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 DriveGuard

The tires completely change the cars comfort and driving experience by mitigating the harshness and wandering of the oem continental conti rfts. Immediate improvement / the car is now is grand tourer like my other BMWs that ride on Michelin Primacy non rft. I had the Driveguards shipped to my house and installed by BMW for $79. At $161 per tire (and $70...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Much more responsive than all season radials I removed. I nearly got t-boned going about 20 mph in town. It happened so fast that I didn't have time to hit the horn. I immediately swerved hard to the left as I was bearing down real hard on the brakes. The car swerved and came to such a fast stop, it nearly put me into shock. The car that nearly broadsided me...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The car originally came with Michelin tires, but after several sets, we decided to change to Bridgestone, primarily for cost. That was a mistake, and we have switched back to the Michelin's (their reliability, quality, traction in all our conditions - CA, West Coast - and wear, and now cost, makes them the only choice!). Have also had the opportunity to try...  Read More
