Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

The Dunlop SP 7000's that came with my accord were ok for dry but were mediocre in the rain and Snow. These Kumho's are better in every aspect except road noise, the PA31 can be a little noisy on concrete highways no problems on asphalt.Turn in and stability are great for the price and definitely better than stock unless some other moderately priced...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical

I don't understand the other reviews I've read regarding this tire. I have 57,000 miles on my 2014 Mazda 6. I had some hydroplaning issues when the interstate was flooding but otherwise, considering the mileage I have on these tires, I've been very satisfied. Not sure if the lack of traction in the 9 month long winters here in Minnesota is due to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek AT20

I was actually doing some research on other tires based on the looks rather than on the performance when I came to realize how fortunate I was to have had those Dunlops. They came with my 2012 FJ and everyone who had the chance to drive since have commented on the smoothness of the ride. This is partly due to the suspension system but also the tires as I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical

I've got 28,000 miles on these tires and the tread depth is down to 2/32 so I will be replacing them immediately. I am very disappointed that when you buy a new car they usually put cheap tires on them. Overall everything on these tires was pretty good except the tread wear. I would have expected to get more than 28,000 miles but I guess I can't complain too...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

My BMW had run flats on it and I hated the ride. These tires are a breath of fresh air!!! Smooth, reactive and very responsive. Great on the highway and so far so good! I admit I just got them but WHAT A DIFFERENCE. Low road noise and better ride almost immediately. For the price run, don't walk and buy these great tires. Nice $60. rebate through august 31st...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

I researched a number of tires before getting the Dunlop Signature HP and I am glad I did. They are quiet, handle great and were a great price (about four hundred for all four). I drive aggressively and these tires respond great. The noise is hard to judge with a convertible (even with the top up), but they seem quieter than previous tires. I would buy these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I was a little skeptical when I first bought this tire. If you live in the PNW and drive on our harsh roads, this is not the quietest tire out there. However get on a smoother road and this tire rides very quiet. The noise factor aside....wow this tire. I had my GTI for 28,000 miles and after putting the PSS on, I feel like I bought a new car. It was getting...  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 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 Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

These are very good tires. They are outstanding in the dry and very good in the wet. Very stable and very good steering response. I track my car with Dunlop Direzza ZII ultra high performance tires I put on for that purpose only, and I can say the Eagle F1's 80-90% of that tire in terms of grip. Which is saying a lot because the Direzzas are almost racing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

2013 was not a good year for me, in terms of getting through the winter. I had to park my 2011 370Z all winter and drive around my 2003 Ford Escape beater. I upgraded to the 2015 WRX STi in 2014 and with the news that 2014 will have bad snow season, I decided to get dedicated snow tires and wheels. I didn't want to break the bank, I decided to go with the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

all I can say is WOW. I replaced the OEM dunlop tires with the these tires and the difference is nothing short of amazing! BUY THESE TIRES, worth every penny   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow

Incredible tire. All of my questions were answered immediately when the snow came hard the first week of installation. I've run Blizzacks, Dunlop winter sports,and others but these lead the pack. They took the trip to Florida and back so well I'm leaving them on year round. Barely any noise and none above my wifes chirping. Thanks to all reviewers who were...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO

Yes, I had over 70,000 mixed paved /unpaved travels. Not one flat. Noisier than OE Goodyear Wranglers & Dunlops, but not objectionable. These tires are the only brand I've had on several SUV's over the years that I didn't have a flat with. The only reason I replaced them (with another set of BFG AT's) was the weather checking. Still had another 10k in them.Wh...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP31 A/S

While many of these reviews are negative, this one is my own experiences with this tire and it has not been an overall negative one. I purchased my 2011 Honda Insight EX used at a year old and since that time, I have put just about 30,000 miles on the tires now in th two years I have own it. Living in New England, I experience every realm of weather one can...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

Replaced the OEM Continetal Procontacts with these. I live in FL where an Allseason tire makes no sense. The handling, braking, and everything is so much better then even the best allseason tire. On a few corners where the car would whine and dance about doing 35-40mph in dry conditions, can now be taken at 50-55mph with no noise or fuss. Very confidence...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Purchased these after my OEM Dunlops wore out. WHAT A DIFFERENCE the MPSS's make.The wet traction is almost unnatural. It is seriously unbelievable how well these grip in wet. I opted to go with a wider tire size (245) and shorter sidewall (40)So I was worried about harshness from uneven roads... NOPE! They actually ride much smoother than the OEM dunlops...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Tires perform much better than the O.E. Dunlops. All-wheel drive definitely helps the winter weather driving experience. Would definitely buy these again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

I used 3 sets of these and/or their grandfather (Dunlop Sport M2) over the last 14 years using them only during the winter. I'm now going to buy a new set of the next winter. I really like them for Seattle driving where water and wet snow is what I mostly drive on winter around town and in the mountains. They are true to their advertising: better tire than...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

Far exceeded expectations, especially in snow. After buying a CPO Q5 3.2 late in the winter and experiencing the oem Dunlops, I needed to decide on some a/s tires, and many of the usual go-to tires were sold out.I knew the Conti-General product line is excellent, based on my experience with a few models, so I took a chance on these RT tires. I hoped that 700...  Read More
