Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX Sport

These came with my used MDX with 10,000 miles. The ride is very harsh but I'm not sure if it is the tires or suspension since this is my first MDX. Highway driving is smooth seem to grip the road nicely. City is hard ride but still firm road grip even cornering is good. Pressure is 35 so not sure if that makes the tire ride firmly and harshly at the same...  Read More

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

Had the previous version of this tire the A/S 3. Bought it again because I don't think there is a better tire on the market. For all the nay-sayers about the snow traction...c'mon. This is an ultra high performance all season tire......if you're running them n the snow what do you expect?? I had zero issues with the previous version on the days it snowed in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

The Michelin Defender is a decent tire overall, but it's wearing far too fast to consider buying it again. We have 34,000 miles on them and they're almost worn out (warranty is for 90,000 miles).   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I purchased these tires because the Hankook RS-3's in my size were on back order. I have used the RE-11's for about 8 autocross events and 5 track days without any miles in rain/wet conditions. These tires grip incredibly well and handle the heat of 30-minute track sessions without any issues. Their break-away characteristics are predictable and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G056

Had these Yokohama's on now for 3 days. They were put on during a significant snowstorm so I was able to test drive them immediately. Traction was great. I researched these thoroughly before buying. It was between the Geolandar's G056 and the Michelin LX2's. I went with the Geolandar's due to significant price difference but similar ratings, and past history...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Amazing tires! I bought a set of GoodYear Assurance ComforTred Touring tires that I used for a week, then I exchanged them for these Michelins and I appreciated the improvement in every aspect of driving. These are the first tires I owned that could be balanced perfectly. (Unfortunately I am too sensitive to little imperfections.) They provide good comfort...  Read More

Testing the New Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+

Not long ago, Michelin introduced the Pilot Sport A/S 3 Ultra High Performance All-Season tire as a direct replacement for the popular Pilot Sport A/S Plus. We wrote about the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus in our post, "Which Ultra High Performance All-Season Tires Should I Buy?" Like its predecessor, the Pilot Sport A/S 3 had a noticeable advantage in...  Read More

How Tire Treadwear Warranties Work

If you've ever shopped for tires, you have probably seen or at least heard about a tires treadwear warranty. Most major tire manufacturers advertise that their tires are supposed to provide a given number of miles of treadwear before they are legally worn out. Higher performance tires such as the Michelin Pilot Super Sport may have lower wear warranties...  Read More

Tires for Your Hyundai Genesis Sedan Marked Down

For a long time, Germany owned the luxury car game. Then along came Acura, Lexus and Infinity. Now the new hot name in luxury is Hyundai. Hyundai? Yes, Hyundai. We've heard from many Hyundai Genesis Sedan owners that they're happy with their luxury car choice. A few though have been disappointed with the average wear from their 235/50R18 Original Equipment...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology

Wow! Replaced original Michelin Energy LX4 with 60K miles on them with these Conti ProContact EcoPlus in 235/60R17. I could not be more pleased. They are so much better in all aspects to the LX4s. Better traction, better noise, better ride. My Odyssey feels like it is on rails and at times I almost forget I that am in a mini van. I would buy again in a heart...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

I currently have these tires on a 2004 BMW 330Ci. There were a lot of bad reviews on here about these tires but I decided to buy them anyway because of the much lower price and the $80 rebate offered. I owned a pair of Hankook Ventus RS2 about 5 years ago and those tires were the best (200 tread wear). The cornered compared to the Micheline Pilot Sport 2 for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

Hankook Optimo H727 tires only lasted 22,672 miles and about a year and a half. Noticed right away that the Optimos felt like driving on marbles. I replaced them with Michelin Defenders and the Michelins seemed to have a much better grasp of the road, and felt more secure.May 9, 2012 I purchased 4 Hankook Optimo H727 Tires from Tire Rack. These tires are...  Read More

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

Great tires! I had stock Michelin Pilot MXM4's and I thought they were good, but these Pirelli's are quiter and feel more solid very responsive! I can feel a notable difference.My main concern was that they would not wear as well but have held strong. (Not to mention they were about $300 less than replacing with the Pilot MXM4's) If they get close to the 70K...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

I bought these tires after getting 55K from the OEM Michelin's. I have never had a better set of tires in the rain, it almost seems as if I am driving on dry pavement. It could be light rain, or downpours, I have never slipped at the intersection or hydroplaned on the expressway. I have not had a chance to drive around in snowy conditions, we just haven't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Simply outstanding. Put these winter tires on about a month ago and already in the Chicago area we've gotten 7 inches of snow..which I looked forward to in that I wanted to see if these tires were what I expected. They are quiet on dry roads, very pleasant in cold temperatures (10-20 degrees) responsive and so on. In the snow they are very good and you will...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 M

Don't know why everyone else is complaining about tread wear. Came OEM, 18,500 miles of somewhat aggressive driving and still 8/32's on all 4 tires. Snow grip is awesome (compared to the Michelin Pilot MXM4s on my previous car, 2010 Ford Fusion.) Only flaws are the rough ride and road noise but it doesn't bother me. After all, if you want a quiet luxury car,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

Came OEM on my car. Great traction in wet and dry. 8 track days and 8600 miles and still plenty of tread. I am impressed by the mileage for a high performance tire. Tons of grip on the track, predictable slip with appropriate level of sound feedback and feel through the steering. I hear how great Michelin's are but I competed at an auto cross against a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

My actual vehicle is a AMC Eagle but it was not listed. I plow snow with this car as well as use it to commute to work. My first set of winter tires were Blizzak WS15s ( I was able to get 25000 winter miles out of them ) and as good as they were the Winter Duelers are that much better. I can drive 15-20 mph faster on snow and packed snow then my summer tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar I/T G072

I have driven in terrible winter conditions all across Canada (for 20 plus years) and these tires are by far the best I have ever owned (I am talking SUV driving). From heavy wet snow to hard packed snow in -30 windy conditions, to black ice, to ice....these tires have never let me down. They have been so good, I have rarely had to resort to flipping the...  Read More
