Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

This is my SECOND set of LTX M/S2's. My first set I got about 100K on them. This set I will get close to that. I love them. I will buy another set when these are done! Highly recommend these tires   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (H- or V-Speed Rated)

So I replaced my Hankook 16 inch Run Flats that came standard on the car when I bought it in 2014 with these Goodyear All Seasons. What a huge difference these All Seasons are compared to the Run Flats. I will never buy another set of Run Flats again (I guess, other than if they come standard on a new Mini and I have no other option). The Run Flats have a...  Read More

Are My Tires Too Old?

How old is too old is an oft-asked question. While the industry guidelines say six years in use or 10 years from build, your experience can vary. The life span you see from any tire can vary greatly depending on how it is used. For example, counter to common belief, an infrequently used tire actually lives a harder life than one that is exercised on a...  Read More

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

So my Volkwagen Tiguan has 107,000 miles and a set of worn out Pirelli Scorpion Asimetrico tires. Based on the ratings & reviews, I went for the g-Force Comp-2. Let me save you all some time on researching your tire selection. These tires are absolutely at the top of its game.With only 50 miles on it, I felt a major difference in the handling, noise, comfort...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Have had two sets of Pilot Super Sports on my E90 and have been very pleased. The dry grip is tremendous, the wet grip is very good, and they even perform reasonably well when it gets cold (but no snow). I have a dedicated set of winter tires so these are on the car from April to November. I've gotten three solid summers out of them and they still have a...  Read More

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

This is an excellent tire for the money. I got the 285/35-20 and traction is great in wet or dry conditions. TheyI have not seen snow or ice yet, but noise levels are very reasonable. I was concerned that going with a much larger wheel and tire than the stock 235/50-18 there would be some tram lining. But these are as good or better than the stock set up. At...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

These tires are very good all around tires. They stick to the dry road, and there is minimal hydroplaning on wet roads. However they do tend to hydroplane in deeper standing water, at speeds above 60 mph. Overall I would buy this tire again, and I would recommend them to my friends and family.....   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Review caveat: while I just had these installed, I wanted to capture my initial thoughts and will do follow ups later once I have some miles on the tires.My OEM (Conti - summer tires) had approx 15k on them and were ready to be replaced. While these handled extremely well, they were stiff, hit hard on bumps/uneven roads and wore out quickly. Note I didn't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat

These were the OEM tires on my wife's 2015 BMW X3 2.8d. Not very happy with them. They are average at best. They are ok in the dry and rain. Terrible in anything with snow or ice. I would not buy another set.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

4 years and almost 45k miles on my Speed3 and they'll do anything I ask of them except ice and snow. I don't care about that. Absolutely awesome in the Seattle rain and deep puddles. I've never felt out of control in any hard rain situation. Great 3 season tire. Would buy this series again soon. I still have 1/4 of tread left. They are getting a little noisy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

These tires perform as week as they did when they were new. I have 8/32s tread depth on all for corners. When they were installed I immediately notice a 10% increase in gas mileage. The ride quality and noise were great and only the ride quality has fallen a little due to the decrease in tread depth. I take this car all over the USA from Wisconsin to South...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

I've owned over 30 sets of tires, and these are the best I've ever bought for my purposes. My daily commute to work is 100 miles, and is 95% highway. I wanted a set of tires that would give good handling, very good gas mileage, and exceptional tread life. The Primacy MXV4 succeeded on all counts.I currently have 101,000 miles on these tires, with decent...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Replaced the runflat tires on my car with these. Never looked back. It's quite good improvement compared to the old version and that one was already very good. This one has great traction in all sorts of conditions dry, wet, snow, ice. Cornering stability is a bit weak, but not sure if that's due to my heavy car or the tire. It's noisy on concrete, but I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX Sport

These came OEM on our Range Rover. We now have 30k miles on them. I say buy them.Pros: Long wearing; handled snowmagedon in Atlanta a few years ago with aplomb. After the entire city was experiencing pandemonium these tires seemed nearly heroic in the light snow and VERY icy conditions. I drove up my steep paved driveway that was covered in snow and ice...  Read More

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

The wet traction and cornering stability of these tires is great! They aren't as quite as the OE Goodyears that they replaced; there is a hollow droning that is present at speed. But, I will take a little more road noise in exchange for superior road holding ability and wet weather traction. The dry traction is nothing to sneeze at either. I have not had the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS

This tire came OEM on my 2016 VW GTI. Would buy them again. Car tracks perfect with them, they balance nice, handle nice. I drove in a rain storm where I could hardly see the cars ahead with no hydroplanning. Have noticed no tire noise out of the ordinary. They come in a current great price at $87 at Tire Rack in my size. I have only 3K on mine, but based on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

We have the 50MPG Cruze diesel and drive about 100 miles min rt to work everyday. I have always done my homework when buying tires so rarely am I surprised at the results I receive and I have been driving for almost 40 years. These are quite possibly the best tires I have ever owned. The car came with Goodyears as OEM and they were good tires. We got 60K...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Awesome tires, would definitely buy them again. If you live in snow these are the tires to buy. For the money you're getting every bit of traction for your dollar. I live in Minnesota and drive very spirited these handle in snow and dry and rain with no problem. They're a little too loud on the road and not very soft but I can only expect so much.   Read More

Best tire I have ever had on this car. I am in a car club here in Va. We go on long rides through the mountains , high speed curves , never had any corning problems . These tires are maid for performance cars not front wheel drive granny cars. Getting ready to buy another set. Great tire.   Read More
