Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

I like these well enough to buy another set. They're much better than the OEM Continentals the car came with. Those only lasted for 19K miles, and that with having to replace three of them after hitting potholes in Boston--pretty weak. The 970's feel solid, hang in the corners and do pretty well in the snow. They were pretty quiet up till 35K miles, but now...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Bought these for my wife. Immediately noticed a marked reduction in gas mileage. There goes any money we hoped to save! And because the Civic has that dumb (and numb) electric steering, these tires require constant correction - very aggravating and tiring, especially on longer trips. The sidewalls are way too soft and make the car lean heavily while...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

These tires are a wonderful improvement over the Goodyear Assurance original equipment, which we replaced after 30,000 miles due to thinning tread and increasing noise. Night and day difference; much improved ride quality, much lower (almost silent) road noise, and significantly improved turn in response with crisp handling on both dry and wet pavement.The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Purchased my 2013 2 LTZ Malibu new and all was well with the OEM Goodyear RSA tires until the first winter arrived.I was very concerned because the car was almost undriveable even in light snow.Granted this is a performance car with wide 19 inch tires but I was not expecting such poor/dangerous performance with a OEM all season spec tire.Somehow I made it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

So far after about 18-20 months with them on my VW Jetta 2.0T, wear has been outstanding, dry handling good, exceptional wet handling and surprisingly they are actually ok in the snow! I don't bother with winter rubber on this car, if it gets bad out there we have a truck, so no worries. The price for these was very competitive which sealed the deal. If I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Hey Guys,I just wanted to share my experience with this amazing Michelin product. I own a modified 2014 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 which dyno-tuned at 413hp@407tq. Previously, I purchased Mickey Thompson Street Comp 255/40/19 & 295/35/19 tires about 4 months ago, an extreme summer performance tire. Well the tires were great if you are a road course/autocross...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

Just bought these for my Volvo. Ive had 4 different vehicles in my lifetime and probably 10 or 11 different sets of tires. BY FAR these are the best Ive ever had. I love all season tires and after having these I don't think Ill ever buy anything besides these for my car again! When I bought this in the summer the previous owner had Pirelli P Zero tires on it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

This tire was recommended by the Tire Rack and Michelin sites for this vehicle, a 1999 MB CL500 coupe with 110,000 miles in exceptional condition, incl suspension. Tires are 100 H series (135mph max).I have owned many brands (eight by count) and buy Michelin's, due to the consistent performance, durability and quality. Car has the M119 high performance...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Love these tires!! I thought that the stock Goodyear tires were great, but these Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires take my car to a whole new level. Absolutely no breaking loose on hard acceleration when they are cold, unlike the stock Goodyear Supercar tires. Quiet and sticky, with great response to driver input, and excellent feedback on road conditions.Thes...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Just put these tires on yesterday, before today's snow storm. I live in the mountains, on windy back roads, with a 1200 foot unpaved, uphill driveway. I'm a high mileage commuter, so I don't skimp on rubber. It's been snowing all day today, so I decided to try out the new X-ice 3's I just put on. These are my 3rd set of Winter tires. Living where I do, with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Nothing brings out the performance of your auto more than a good set of tires. With 45,000 miles on them, the OEM tires were getting noisy and starting to wear unevenly (a given with BMW rear tires). Time to buy tires and get back to Bridgestone.I have tried several other brands over the years but nothing performs like the And just when you think they have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Replaced Eagle GT A/S after 25k miles, shouldn't have waited so long, as these completely transformed the car for the better. In dry performance up there with dedicated Summer tires, wet traction, handling and braking are one of best tires I've ever owned.Recent ice storm here in DFW demo'd winter capabilities. Was able to get around, alebeit cautiously,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

When people write reviews they seldom say what the vehicle is. So how true or accurate is their review? Here's my review.I drive a 2011 Kia Sportage. I'm an aggressive driver especially when driving from Washington to California and to Nevada. I really enjoy the winding roads in the mountain passes. These tires take a set when going into corners at speed and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

This is my second set of these tires on my current car. The first wore out after only 30,000 miles. The dealership from which I bought them replaced them with the same tires based on warranty rates (these have a 60,00 mile tread wear warranty). However, I'm having to replace my current set only after roughly 27,000 miles. The tires drive great, even in light...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I have driven on this tire for 20000 miles before they began making noise and it seems to just be getting louder. I have taken the car to have it looked at but they can find nothing wrong. There is no visible cupping and although this tire rides great, I do not think I would buy this tire again. If only the Pirelli's were out when I bought these.   Read More

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

2014 640i Gran Coupe Xdrive. Came with Goodyear LS2 Runflats. The ride was so harsh and tires loud that i took them off the car with 3000 miles and i didn't have the reliability issues others have had with no potholes here in Florida. I can't believe BMW sells an 88K luxury car with these tires. I have decided that after going through Performance tires every...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (T-Speed Rated)

I have had these tires for about a year now and they have worn wonderfully thus far. The dry performance is fantastic, and wet performance is nearly as good. The only factor playing into the performance of the tire negatively would be the fact that I drive a small car. The Toyota Corolla is very light and easily manipulated by weather factors, however the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I was stuck in the same rut as other Toyota 4Runner Limited owners with VERY limited replacement options or change tire sizes to 275/55R20 . The OEM Yokohama Geolandars barely made 35K miles and were extremely NOISY by 25k miles- so I knew I didn't want them so I made the switch to these Michelin LTX M/S 2. I am SO glad I switched. The noise, ride and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I had Continentals on the car recently and loved everything but the handling. I have to admit I like to push roundabouts & off ramps faster than the recommended speeds, but there again, that is my preference. The tires were quiet, comfortable & great in poor weather, but under heavy steering, I lost confidence in the car's feeling of stability. These Good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z III

Initially I was dead set on buying some Hankook VENTUS V12 EVO2 for my car to replace the absolutely awful OEM all seasons on my car. But after careful research and the fair coverage done by Tirerack I decided to try these Sumitomos which were a completely unheard of brand prior to my purchase. What an amazing difference. Treadwear is the same if not better...  Read More
