What to Buy When the Michelin Pilot Super Sport is Backordered

The Michelin Pilot Super Sport is an outstanding tire. It combines top-tier wet and dry traction with responsive handling, making it a benchmark in the Max Performance Summer category. Unfortunately, it has been out of stock in many sizes this summer. So what do you do if the Super Sport has an indefinite backorder in your size? It depends on why you wanted...  Read More

Continental ExtremeContact DWS Replaced by ExtremeContact DWS 06

Since its introduction six years ago, the Continental ExtremeContact DWS has topped our customer survey data in the Ultra High Performance All-Season category. Its best-in-class snow traction, along with good wet traction and wear has made it the go-to tire for many drivers in the Snow Belt who need more snow traction out of their performance all-season...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

I bought these tires because someone here compared them to Michelins. I'm so glad I did. When I drove on them for the first time I couldn't believe how quiet they are. My radio is still at the same level with no trouble hearing it and my gas mileage is still the same even with the aggressive treads pattern. I wanted to wait to write this review so I could...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

These are my OEM tires on my 2010 Ford Taurus SHO. It is finally time to replace these tires. Being AWD I've rarely rotated them, but even wear. With the SHO if I gun it, they will spin momentarily. Looking at the other tires and reviews of the cheaper Goodyears, I will likely buy these Michelin's again. Like to accelerate 0-70 on freeway ramps, but no...  Read More

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

Purchased the Pilot A/S 3 91V-rated to replace ContiPro Contact SSR 91H run flats. I carry a spare in the trunk.Conti lasted about 25-30k and were gone. Run flats give you piece of mind but they were noisier than Pilot - I noticed it from the beginning I installed these on. Pilots are also provide a softer ride over small bumps and anomalies on a road; Conti...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

Very pleased with the performance of these tires - far superior than the OEM Goodyear Infinity that only lasted 41,000 miles and got up to 48mpg at best with fair performance. With the Michelins at first got around 46-47 mpg, then as they wore in got closer to 50 mpg, with 52 being the best in ideal circumstances (summer, no A/C, etc). Ride is extremely...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

These tires were replacements for the original equipment tires which I only got 40,000 miles out of them. These tires have been wonderful in all weather conditions. We have traveled through 34 states in a lot of different weather conditions and I have never been disappointed. It's time to replace them and I will be buying these again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Very impressive. I've had these, Firestone Winterforce, and Blizzak WS-80's. The overriding plus is great slush and ice traction, coupled with a quiet highway road. It's hard to rate absolute performance vs. the WS-80's, since these are on the FWD Focus while my WS-80's are on the beastly (in the snow) AWD Subaru. But in braking and cornering, and general...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

I selected this tire knowing that it will mostly be on paved roads but I also needed something that could handle snow/rain/slush/dirt/mud. Just completed my second trip through Oregon on the I-84 in winter and these tires were admirable in horrible conditions, even inflated at 70 psi. These replaced the OEM POS's on an F-250 SD. I had no problems going 55 on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS

TIre wore down at a pretty good rate. Would buy them again . If i had more to spend i would go back with michelin for my 2001 audi FWD   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

I replaced my 2nd set of OE Michelin Diamaris due to uneven tire wear, high noise levels, etc. My first impressions were WOW! no noise (low speed or at 85 mph), small imprefections in road surfaces are a lot less noticeable, and handling dry or wet is great. Now that I have more than 2,500 mile on them my first impressions continue.Do they have the same dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Great tire, with very good grip in all conditions. Not as good as a designated set of winter tires but very close in light and ice traction. The ride is very compliant and quiet, with no noticeable tread noise. Full acceleration from a stop will still spin tires in the wet, but will regain grip quickly. I will buy them again once they wear out.   Read More

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

Moved from Firestone Firehawk {OEM] to this tire. The ride and control are awesome! Like riding a rail. Yes they were expensive, but the control is incredible. Control on wet surfaces are the same as on dry. Bought this tire due to the need for extensive winter driving in the Northeast and I have not been disappointed. Just a wonderful experience.Control...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4 ZP

Recently had these tires installed on my '09 JETTA SPORTSWAGEN TDI. WOW! Like a new car again. Great riding, solid and stable performance. Got 75K miles on OE Michelins - expect the same or better on these. Had to stop quick for a deer recently and tires responded great. The deer is safe and so were we. I'd buy these tires again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have survived seven PA winters using performance all-season tires but knew it was just a matter of time before my Mustang got stuck and left me out in the cold. I did my research and opted for a set of WS80 Blizzaks for my factory rims and purchased a set of new wheels / tires for the rest of the year.My previous set of tires were Michelin Pilot Sport A/S...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

There is not a single street car that cannot be made better by putting these tires on. The hype is real. I use these exclusively for summer tires and have a second set of winter wheels & tires. Even though the winter tires are excellent at their intended job I always can't wait for spring to put these tires back on. The ride does firm up a bit because of the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Purchased set of 4 tires and wheels for 2004 COMP GTP. Love the tires. Felt every bit as good as Michelin Pilot Sport tires that I have purchased many times in the past for many of my vehicles. I really saw no difference between the Hancook and the Michelins with possibly the exception of initial cold weather ride when first starting out. There is a very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

I moved away from the OEM Michelin tires (Mud/Snow) that are a very good tire and if you do off road driving a little, maybe the best choice for that. However, I have had the opportunity to test these Bridgestone tires in snow, ice, rain and more in the first 300 miles and they keep my Ridgeline pickup in excellent control of the conditions. Where these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3 N-Spec

I was convinced to buy these when I called Tire Rack and had a sales specialist (Theo) sharing his experience and other using these Miichelin winter tires. I had a bad experience in Winter with this brand and was a fan of Blizzak for our very cold and snowy canadian winter. i drive a lot , in every condition and I actually love driving in the worst of the...  Read More
