More Grip for Your 2015 Ford Mustang Fastback GT Performance Pack

As we saw for ourselves at Willow Springs, Ford has done an awewsome job with brand new S550 2015 Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack! As you can see in the video, the driver had a great lap, but even the best cars can desire more grip. How about¬†swapping on some¬†custom fit closeout matte graphite 20x10 ET40 Hotckis Y-Sports on Extreme Performance Summer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Knowing that I am making a definite trade off in handling for better winter weather traction, I am quite pleased. Going from a lower profile M+S sport touring tire to a Winter/snow tire is very much (in my case) going from the feel of a sport/touring car to that of a small (yet capable) pick-up truck/SUV. Pushing hard, in conditions that my other tires would...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I used DWS 205/50's on the 16 rims that came with the car but found them to be ineffective in change of season slush or wet snow even brand new or wet roads at less than 4/32nd. I used 185/65-15 General Arctic winter tires and found them satisfactory as a summer tire when they were too worn for effective winter use. In August, I exchanged the 16 alloy rims...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have survived seven PA winters using performance all-season tires but knew it was just a matter of time before my Mustang got stuck and left me out in the cold. I did my research and opted for a set of WS80 Blizzaks for my factory rims and purchased a set of new wheels / tires for the rest of the year.My previous set of tires were Michelin Pilot Sport A/S...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I'm a 71 year old female who drives 25 miles to work each day and back in very hazardous conditions. I called Tire rack to see what I could do about my tires as my car came with 18 inch tires and it was extremely dangerous in the ice and snow. My salesman suggested that I go to a 16 inch tire with studs for the winter here in Ohio, and sold me new rims and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

2002 Park Avenue with WS80 Blizzak...also see my 2000 Park ave ws70 Blizzak review.My wife needs ice tires this runs more highway freeway and metro streets stop n go lights etc, but also needs to get through deep snow at times. We got rid of X ice 2's (they were used with Buick rims from an old dealer)... a good ice tire but Blizzak has the winter edge. the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D

The M4 and my previous sets of M3's on two Subies are the best tire I've owned, period. One set was wearing down a bit more than I like in late spring, so I decided to take them into summer, couldn't wear them out. Great confidence on dry roads, off road mud, etc. I've been on glare ice where the ABS pumped a whole lot more than I would have liked trying to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

best of the best, best ride,by far best smooth balance of all the tires put on this car, rides like a smooth brick. the best tire ever made by this company, it took the jitters out of the ride, beautiful. ps. Tight fit on the 85 535i max. tire with the 17in. rims 2002 x-5, had to use spacers, 1 and 3/4.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

When I bought the car it had some random tire I'd never heard of Fuzion ZRi felt like a decent tire a bit harsh on the ride but eh they lasted for maybe 12k miles seemed to be pretty new when I got the car. Then used a set of all seasons for a while on a spare set of rims i had laying around. Definitely noticed the performance drop off. Got these based on a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus R-S3

This was the only size Hankook made to fit my 7x15 rims. They dropped the convertible car 1 in ride height, lowered the rear ratio 10% to 3.60:1 which is excellent in all respects. The improvement in handling is very intertaining in a stock car. Well under 6 seconds 0-60 now and have to feather the gas on launch to keep from smoky burnouts. Once these tires...  Read More

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

If you have an Infiniti Q50 with the runflat OEMs, you have no idea what this car can actually do. I've read good reviews on this tire after extensive research and it seemed like a good fit for this car; as I was very disappointed in how the car preformed with the OEM tires. I almost didn't get the Q50 because of the ride it delivered stock.These tires are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I did a lot of research before purchasing these tires. I previously had Blizzaks on my old truck but went with these as I could buy the rims and tires for the price of the Blizzaks. I prefer them, and I never thought I would.I love these tires! It usually only snows a few times a year but when it does we need to be able to get around as they don't plough the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

Purchased these tires for my Prius Touring (I liked the regular tire size better than the touring so had them swapped to the 15in rims) while living in the PacNW for harsh winter driving to and from work. Tires were abused on logging roads,(yup went hunting in a prius and got funny looks from lifted truck drivers...) excelled in warm wet environments, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

I purchased a 2013 Ford Explorer 4x4 in December 2012. It came with Michelin Latitude Touring tires 245/60R-18. These are probably the worse tires to put on an SUV and after reading a lot of reviews possibly any car. I went through two Cleveland winters with them and refused to take on another. I consider these Michelins to be absolutely treacherous in snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Purchased these tires for a spare set of rims I had in December. Put them on and we had no snow until late January here in MA. Now we're going on 5 feet of snow. These are on my wife's Equinox and she loves them. I've noticed they are outstanding in the snow, slush, and even DEEP snow these tires really help the car power through. What a difference compared...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

Got these due to moving to Denver from Washington DC...all seasons were getting worn, so saving them for spring/summer driving and got these for fall/winter. So glad we did. We live halfway between Denver and Colorado Springs along I-25 and my wife drives to Colorado Springs for work a lot. She has done it a couple of times in snowstorms and on a couple of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

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 Continental ExtremeContact DWS

For my Mazda 6 wagon, these tires have met or exceeded expectations. I wanted a good handling, quiet tire that would wear well and be good in the wet and occasional snow. During dry and wet weather, they are very smooth in transition during hard cornering without a lot of squealing and drama. I am very pleased with the handling, accepting that these are not...  Read More

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

This is a review for both the General Tires and Anzio Wave wheels I purchased together.Chances of me ever walking in to any Tire Service Center and buying tires again are pretty darn slim. Granted, if I were out of town miles away from home and really needed a new tire I guess I would go ahead and get it done. But getting tires and wheels (rims)...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

I purchased these in 1/9/09 so these have almost 4 winters on them. I purchased them because this is the car my bride drives 15 miles to work each day. One day I pulled out of my driveway with less than 2 of snow, (using 3 month old BS Turanza Serenity A/S tires. I was shocked the car had no control when starting from a stop; directing me toward the curb. I...  Read More
