Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

As for that Snowflake rating: Plenty of reviews talk about the the K02's as great tires but a lot of people are buying these expecting them to compete with Blizzaks as a winter tire, I will tell you that there is absolutely no comparison to a dedicated set of winter tires for most winter conditions. They are far superior to a mud tires in any winter...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I recently received my Mercedes-AMG C43 order and it arrived with Continental ContiSportContact SSR tires. I'd already purchased Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires (non-run-flat) for the car and the dealer generously agreed to buy the Continental tires back from me. However, they couldn't get the car in to switch the tires for a couple of days, so I drove the car...  Read More

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

I have had mediocre to bad experiences with Michelin Tires in the past. I was a little uneasy about buying these tires. All that I can say is that I have been pleasantly surprised! These are super tires. The entire Michelin Organization should be very proud of this product. They do everything extremely well, except my front tires have a slight slip on road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Laufenn S FIT AS

I wish they have this size on my rear tires, I ended up getting sumitro's, now that I needed the front tires, I decided get same as sumitomo's to my surprise, it's noisier, I plan to buy this for my accord and civic, they have good tread wear, considering how heavy my s class is, I got 55k miles out of it.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

First of all, the tread life of these tires is not very good. If you are buying these to drive on daily, you (other than just wasting them) are more or less wasting your money, they aren't really meant for that. I'm roughly 40% through the life of the tire after 3500 miles of combined city/highway, three track days and one autocross event. These are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I was looking for an affordable set of tires for our Jetta. The Kumho was recommended by my mechanic and even though they were less than $300 a set I took a chance and ordered them. The results blew me away! Quiet, comfortable and excellent handling in extreme wet conditions! I drove home through a major rain storm and the car was stable, steady and on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Bought these as replacements for the OEM Kumhos that came with my car... The Kumhos were ok as long as it wasn't too wet out. They were horrible in the snow... but these Continental PureContacts were very highly rated and that turned out to be true.This is a fantastic tire - great traction in the rain and light snow... and quiet as well. These are a bargain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I really like these tires. We have a lot of days where the temperatures are below freezing at night and warm in the afternoons, so I had to go to all weather tires. They don't track as well as switching between summer and winter tires, but these tires are a good compromise. I was wearing out my winter tires quickly when the weather got warm in the...  Read More

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

Best all around tire that I have ever purchased. Great in normal and wet conditions and pretty good with snow. Nothing like snow tires, but comes closer than any other tire I have had. I average about 30k miles per year, so I am buying tires about every 3 years or less. The one thing I did notice is that that they tend to track the grooves in the roads where...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 N-Spec

If you are looking for a performance winter tire. This is it. I've used normal winter tires on a Honda Civic before and i hated the handling and the noise and the grip in the rain and dry wasn't that great. With my performance package Mustang GT, I knew i wanted to maintain the sporty handling that the car had on the factory Pirelli P-Zero Maximum...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

With tires, you pay for what you get; and these tires are DEFINITELY worth paying for. I live up in the foothills of Vermont, and drive everything from deep mud and rocks up to our hunting camp, to up and down the highway for work. I couldn't be happier with a set of tires being able to handle it all. I was skeptical of how the bigger tread would handle the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

BEST SUMMER TIRES EVER. Save yourself the time and just buy them. I've had Kumho, Sumitomo, Goodyear, Pirelli, Bridgestone and a lot of the Michelin's before the PS4. The PS4's are light years ahead. Unbelievable traction in all conditions, even at the limits. Yet somehow they are super quiet and the ride quality is amazing. Soft, supple even. I have them on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus R-S4

Second year in auto-x. Bought these tires because re-71's were not available. My first impression is that this is a superior tire for autocross. I was somewhat concerned because I had read a review that said they squeal (I came from a Bridgestone Potenza 760, which does squeals a lot and not the best tire for autocross). I can report In 20 runs with these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I did quite a bit of research on the available tires for my TT Roadster before I purchased. I have had some good success with sets of Conti's in previous years. However, when the tires wear down they are very noisy. This is what I was trying to avoid. So other than performance I wanted quiet I swore in the past that I would never buy Firestone's from...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

OE equipment, almost 94k miles on the original tires... what more can I say? In Oklahoma we have all kinds of driving conditions, ice, rain, snow, extreme heat. 4 years on the tires and zero complaints. Really good traction in ice/snow/rain. Dry roads the tires seem a little hard (can spin easier) Can slide a little if you take a corner too fast. BUT, they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Riken Raptor ZR

My OE Michelins were almost bald when I took the car out of winter storage. I needed something cheap and quick and these fit the bill. I read the reviews and was surprised by the number of positive experiences. I have to agree that these are great tires, I'd definitely buy them again. I don't know about treadlife yet, but I'm not too concerned about it. The...  Read More

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

I got these for my 2015 Tahoe, and they made this truck what it is - luxury SUV that can go anywhere. These tires are phenomenal. Please don't listen to people bashing these tires in winter conditions. People bashing these tires for poor snow performance should learn : a. These are not winter tires. b. how to drive in winter conditions.Tires are performing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I drive a 5,000 lb 4.6L supercharged Mercury Marauder mostly in the Tampa Bay area. We have the best road surfaces here for recreational driving. I drive roughly 50 per day, every day and these tires wear perfectly. The car has a straight axle in the rear so I frequently rotate the tires for best wear. I love the ride quality and most importantly, the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

THESE TIRES ARE USED IN PARK CITY UT IN A SUBDIVISION UP ON A MTN SIDE. OUR ROADS ARE SO STEEP AND SNOWY THAT THE COUNTY SENDS AROUND A FRONT END LOADER WITH CHAINS ON ALL FOUR WHEELS BEFORE THE SNOW PLOW COMES BY! TEN INCHES OF WET, SLICK SNOW, UNPLOWED AND I HAD NO TROUBLE MOVING, STOPPING OR STEERING AT ALL. THE FEDEX DELIVERY SUV WAS STUCK, AS WELL AS...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta STX KL12

I have been very happy with these tires. Wet traction had been a concern with my old tires (don't even remember what brand they were) and these are significantly better and have not slipped or hydroplaned at all. I haven't driven them on snow or ice--hey it's Alabama--we just wait a few hours for it to melt. The sound level has gotten a little louder now...  Read More
