Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

This is the first tire review I have ever left on any product. When purchaing tires I always weight heavily on the reviews. The only concern I had was the cost as they are a littel pricey. The Michellin Premier A/S have been the best set of tires I have ever owned. Traction and cornering is better then I ever expected. Wet traction is phenominal. I really...  Read More

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

Let me start off by saying these are performance tires so expect a slight trade off in ride comfort/noise over a touring tire. With that said, these tires grip like crazy! I usually only buy two tires at a time so I am still running the stock Michelin Primacy tires in the rear. The car is so much more playful than before and reacts so quickly to steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I had a set of Nokian WR G3 SUV tires on my previous Subaru and while they gave me great winter performance they were very loud and pretty rough. When I bought the Outback I knew I wanted to replace the factory Bridgestones with something better and I debated about going with a dedicated winter tire but I just didn't want to mess with having to swap tires,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Exceeded the millage warranty as I travel regularly in my auto, and found they are ready to be replaced. I do drive spirited and up and down Hwy I95 daily. These tires have held up really well compared to factory installed Goodyears. They are now getting noisy but again over the warranty, drove in both dry and wet weather and had great traction in both.Just...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

A winter/snow/ice tire is not the general purchase of a south Texas driver but after rolling my previous vehicle 2 years ago in an ice event in Colorado my wife insisted that I purchase some dedicated winter tires if we drove out to Colorado again. All I can say is thanks for the missus being so insistent. I purchased a set of these tires for our 2015 Subaru...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

When the long term winter forecast for Western Washington called for a severe winter by our standards I decided to spring for a dedicated set of winter tires due to my 37 mile one way daily commute. Based on the recommendation of TIRERACK ,I chose a narrower tire with taller sidewall than the stock 205/55 R16. The choice to purchase 195/65 R15 Michellin...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I bought those tires mostly on the basis of other reviews. I didn't want to buy a dedicated snow tire/wheel set for my M5 and wanted something to work in snow and summer.Bottom line, this tire's traction in snow is very decent... On ice, it's not that good as I expected. The ride is soft and cornering isn't that great but again this is an all season tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver LTX

I purchased these tires based on Michelin's reputation. I am a bit biased because I will only buy Michelin tires based on their excellent traction. The tires I replaced were the original tires on my Tacoma 4X4. The original tires were pretty much new, with only 10k miles on them. When I saw The Tire Rack had these Michelin Energy Saver tires on sale, I...  Read More

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

I bought these Sumitomo tires as their specifications (AAA - 600 tread wear) H rated were similar to the top Michelins, Continentals etc specs and were almost half the price. I haven't been disappointed. It a well made, top quality tire at a great price and I'm very happy with the tire performance and the savings!!! It was also very easy through TireRack to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Big fan of Tire Rack, since 1997 every single tire we have purchased has been from Tire Rack. NOW onto the tire review. WOW! Amazing how this tire performs! We've had mixed snow, rain, and some dry road surface condition. The last set of tires we had, more or less took a dive due to control arms and out tie rod ends needing to be replaced and a 4 way...  Read More

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

I am very, very pleased with this tire. I transitioned from some Bridgestone Potenza's which were excellent summer tires and the idea was to get a great all-conditions tire. I am a first responder in a city with poor road treatment in the snow. Within two weeks of purchasing this tire I experienced ice and snow conditions which were very uneasy on the...  Read More

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

I have put 40,000 miles on these tires, and I will be putting on a set of the newer AS3+ this weekend. I have been buying, researching, and driving tires for 2 decades. I am a true car guy, and I love driving, and I really wanted to drive the -------- out of these to see what they could do. First, I know it may sound crazy, but I never once rotated them. Yet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

I did not order my Focus RS with the winter wheel and tire package from the factory - it was not an option for my early order. But when I found out that the factory winter wheel and tire package came with this specific tire, I decided to buy a set of 18 wheels with the Alpins mounted from Tire Rack. I could not be happier with my choice - Ford chose these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

Tires are like speakers. You can have a really, really good sound system and if you put lousy speakers on it, it will sound terrible. You can have a race car and put lousy tires on it and it will handle lousy. Why on earth would you settle for lesser tires on your super-car? The only thing I could recommend over these is the Michelin Cup tires, but they are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Ice Zero FR

I'm located in the midwest where winter conditions vary widely from day to day. I've had Michelin xIce xI3, and General Altimax Arctics in the past (on FWD Honda vehicles). I decided to try these Pirelli Ice Zero FR tires on my RWD e320. I have Michelin Primacy MXM4 tires for the other 3 seasons, so I'm comparing these Pirelli's to a very well-rated...  Read More

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

My last set of tires were winter tires. I live in Denver and took a risk buying these tires for winter and summer since winter tires noticeably reduce performance. I put these on and for about a month drove on dry pavement and my car seems to accelerate faster and handle way better. I love these tires. We had a dry November but it has snowed a bunch since....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

By far the best tires i have ever owned (and i've owned many) for performance. I've had a set on my BMW M235i (non-awd) and boy do these things grip, very sticky once warm! The car does the advertised 0-60 in 4.2 seconds and you feel the acceleration all because of the tires grip. It's my Daily so its mostly City with some Highway. I have done some light...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2

Just did a trip from Seattle to Bend, OR to Winthrop, WA and back to Seattle over the holidays. In snow/ice/compact for 90% of the time, temps never above 28 as soon as we got out of the Puget Sound area, with lows in high single digits. These tires flat out perform. From compact snow/ice to 4 of fresh over compact to 7 of fresh over gravel, these things...  Read More

Had to quickly accelerate and one...  Read More
