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

Great tires! My high performance Camaro came with Pirelli P Zero from the factory, excellent tires, but don't last very long. After doing the research, I decided to get the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. After driving on them for 10,000 miles, I do not notice any decrease in traction, steering response, and cornering. The tires ride with comfort, low...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Amazing. Mid November we got 9 of snow in 8 hours here in Ohio's lake effect snow belt. A co-worker and I pushed 11 cars out of the work parking lot. When it came time for me to leave, several people offered to push my 425HP 6 speed Camaro SS. I wanted to try with no help. After cleaning off the car I put it in 1st gear and drove out of the parking space to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

You'll see 75,000 above and go huh? Well, that's because I bought one set, drove 40,000 miles on them, then purchased another set. I've driven my Camaro across the country from Washington, DC to Seattle, from DC into Canada, from DC to Maine, as well as DC to down south. From tackling the streets of Washington, DC, Boston, New York City, Chicago, Seattle,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I bought these tires for my wife's Jetta after I was told the Firehawk Wideoval Indy 500 Summer tire was being discontinued. I had been running Blizzaks for the winter, and wanted a performance tire. The salesman told me that this tire is a great all around performer. I decided to test out the Firehawks in the snow, before putting the winter set on. Not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

I was waiting for the first chance that I actually drove with these during a storm, when roads hadn't been well plowed, to review them. Yesterday, we had a winter storm during the commute home with poorly plowed roads and a couple of inches of accumulation on the highway. These were a champ at keeping me glued to the road. Minimal slippage once you start up...  Read More

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

I just put a pair of these Goodyear's on the front of my 2010 Camaro SS/RS to replace a pair of General G-MAX AS-03's. My main reason for the change was noise and I am very impressed with the Goodyear's. They are virtually silent. They also turn great, very responsive. I have not had them out in the rain or snow yet.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A Spec

I made it 95 miles in 14-18 inches of snow this past winter and for even a Camaro I did not get stuck and the tires handled the climate beyond my expectations. In dry weather these tires grip the pavement and allow for the cornering without the fear of the rear of the car slipping. I seem to get great gas mileage (24-26 mpg) depending on speed. I rotate this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

After searching for a replacement for the stock P-Zeros, I settled on the BFGs due to the higher hydroplaning resistance rating. I have not been disappointed with their performance in wet conditions. Even though they are spec'd as a summer tire, spring and fall are within their driving range. I will not be testing them in the snow unless its a mistake. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I have these on my Camaro Z28...simply amazing. But, be ready to be annoyed when it snows...because people won't get out of the way to let you pass! I pass Jeeps and SUV's on a regular basis, on slush-filled highways and snowy roads. I put the car into nasty fishtails, and Easily recover. If you slide, the tires BITE hard, and traction actually gets better....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Overall great snow tire. I have these on my 2014 Camaro, and used them on my 2013 Camaro last year. Makes a car that otherwise would NOT be able to handle snow into a car that drives like a truck with 4WD. A few weeks ago my friend got stuck pulling into a driveway with his new Camry. I got right in no problem.Everyone looks at me like I'm crazy driving this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama

I bought these to upgrade to larger rims to give me more grip and stability. My Camaro is now equipped with a 2002 spec Corvette Z06 LS6 motor and I needed more grip. The car's handling is responsive like it was riding on rails and taking the twistys is done with confidence. I have only put a small amount of mileage on them so far, and highway cruising is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I had these tires installed on my 1981 Z28 Camaro about 7,500 miles agao. I tend to drive aggressively in curves and on dry pavement these tires have yet to even act like they are loosing traction. In the rain they do slip if you push them too hard though. With my driving style and modified suspension treadwear is still above average. The noise level of...  Read More

moda MD14 Wheels for Your Dodge Challenger

Mustangs are fun, Camaros are hot, but there is something primal about the Dodge Challenger. Recently, I got to work with a Challenger driver who loves his car, but is less than thrilled with his 18" Original Equipment wheels. When we were discussing new choices for his vehicle, it didn't take long to come across the perfect choice - the moda MD14...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A Spec

I bought these three years ago along with a new set of rims. Shipping from Tirerack was great, and I loved that they came inflated, on the rims. I just slapped them on the car. They handled well, I always felt like they performed great. They are now producing a wumpwumpwump sound at medium speeds, so I'm thinking about replacing them. They still have 3/32...  Read More

Best Tires for Chevrolet Camaro

The Chevrolet Camaro is one of my favorite American muscle cars. I think the car has a nice blend of old school style and new age design. Two of the most popular packages would be the RS and SS which provide optional 20" staggered tires and wheels. The Camaro RS and SS came from the factory with 245/45R20 in the front and 275/40R20 rear Pirelli P Zero Max Per...  Read More
