Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Cinturato

I purchased these tires with steel rims for my recently purchased Fiesta ST. Due to purchasing the car in late November, I knew I had limited time with the Summer only tires from the factory. I saw these and thought I would give them a try. My impressions as of late are that these are great winter tires, even for the winter driving enthusiast. On the dry...  Read More

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

Let me start off by saying these are performance tires so expect a slight trade off in ride comfort/noise over a touring tire. With that said, these tires grip like crazy! I usually only buy two tires at a time so I am still running the stock Michelin Primacy tires in the rear. The car is so much more playful than before and reacts so quickly to steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

When the long term winter forecast for Western Washington called for a severe winter by our standards I decided to spring for a dedicated set of winter tires due to my 37 mile one way daily commute. Based on the recommendation of TIRERACK ,I chose a narrower tire with taller sidewall than the stock 205/55 R16. The choice to purchase 195/65 R15 Michellin...  Read More

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

These tire have noticeably softer side walls than any performance tires I've used in the past 30+ years. Definitely soften the ride. Turn-in is not as sharp as most Ultra High performance tires, but in this case it was what I was looking for, it reduced some of the twitchiness in the Fit's electrically assisted steering. Braking is strong wet or dry. Handing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Bought them used on rims that fit my car, they are the skinniest option offered for my car. second winter I've had them on now and they work great on the unplowed roads I often encounter driving home from work at 4 A.M. I recently found a second set of stock rims for my wife's van and plan to buy a set for that as well.   Read More

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

I put these on my new 2016 Impreza (16x7 Moda rims) and so far they have been excellent in the couple of storms we've had in Denver. I've driven them out in the Summit county mountains over completely snow covered passes and they performed perfectly without hesitation. I was mainly concerned with noise and comfort and these perform as well if not better in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

I recently purchased this set of tires for a second/winter set of wheels for my MX-5. My MX-5 is my year-round daily driver, so having the second set is a necessity. My summer tires are Bridgestone S-04 Pole Positions that came with the car when I purchased it 2 months ago. It was like driving a block of ice on an ice skating rink. So, I had to make a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z II

How does this tire rate currently at 3.9 stars? This is without a doubt the worst set of tires I have every wasted my money on. Purchased as summer tires for the car that goes back and forth on errands, and hauling the family around. There's no high speed cornering, excessive breaking or even high speeds going on in this car. We got one season out of them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I finally caved in to what I thought was hype about snow/winter tires and bought a set of Michelin X-Ice3 tires for my Sonic. After driving through a michigan winter on them... WOW! I was VERY impressed with how well these tires worked in the snow. A little FWD car that everyone thought I was crazy for driving it in the winter... short of being stuck in a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The Pilots are vast improvement over the factory Potenza run-flats. I made the switch to conventional tires with some trepidation. I have a compressor and plug kit in the trunk, which hopefully will get me home in a pinch. These tires have transformed the car to much more pleasant ride. Traction is phenomenal, directional stability is improved and general...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PS31

With a thousand miles I'm still enamored that all tires match. I purchased the car with 17,669 miles on it along with Dunlop's on the fronts and Bridgestone on the rears. Fronts probably original, rears replaced. Had some curb rash repaired, the rims refinished and tires mounted at the same place for under $800.00. So far I've been on the LA frwys on 100...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

I purchased those tires because of my dad high recommended to get those tires because of he had all tires on his few cars. Guess what? When I installed with new rims with tires, the ride is so smoothing and comfortable. I would like buying those tires when it time for replace.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z II

I thought these times had a cool look to them and fie the price I was a bit skeptical myself but I will probably buy these times again when the time comes, they hold up great, mostly I just drive sesponsibly and they to stay away from getting anymore tickets... Lol.... But when I want to I drive the -------- out my car and they are great, I think they are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

First impression: nothing special on dry/wet. Can not comment on stability - got this 2 sizes narrower one size smaller rim and one size taller side wall than standard... Light snow ... nothing special, better breaking than forward tractionHeavy snow: Holly...! yesterday we got several inches, but it was impressive when, without any shoveling, i got out from...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport

Have this tire replace the oem P zero nero at 14000 miles, which is very noise! This Kumho is much better on noise level as well as performance compare to these OEM. I go for a plus size 215/40-17 instead of the stock size. On Tire Rack, these tire will not fit the Fiat Abarth or any other 500. But they do fit without rubbing on a stock rim. These tire...  Read More

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

This set of tires replaced #4 Hankook Ventus Noble S2 A/S High Performance tires which wore bad and wore out around 20k miles of easy to moderate driving. The BFGoodrich tires have better cornering & dry grip. Better braking and acceleration then the Hankooks. The BFs also performan better in not Hydroplaning and does great in cornering & wet conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

These tires replaced my Goodyear LS2 which were the worst tire I ever used. They came on the car when I bought it. These new Pirelli tires are the best replacement for my 19in rims. They are very quiet and smooth ride. They handle heavy rain at interstate speeds with ease. Other cars slowed down I just kept on going with confidence. I haven't had a chance to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Rosso

I have a 08 Mustang GT with only 12K miles on her. Its primarily used as a promotional/show car for my business, Westside Powder Coating, Romulus Michigan. I have done some modifications, one is replaced the factory 17 rims with 19 Ford Racing Track Pak rims. Theses tires 255/50/19 fit beautifully. They really fill up the wheel wells nicely. They replaced...  Read More

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

My 2015 Boxster S came with 20 inch Pirrelli P Zero Max Performance Summer Tires. They provide satisfactory performance when its sunny and hot. When the temps start to drop in the spring and fall they become a poor tire, with increase in road noise and ride discomfort. So after some research I bought a set of Oz Racing Leggera HLT rims with the BF Goodrich...  Read More

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

I bought a 2008 Infiniti G37S a couple moths ago. Love it! It needed new tires to pass MD inspection, so the dealership provided a set of Yok Advan Sport A/S for no additional charge, and they were fine. Unfortunately, with these 19 wheels, the very low aspect ratio looked like trouble in real life situations, since the rims stuck out beyond the sidewall, so...  Read More
