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

I decided that I needed all season tires to replace the summer Pirelli P Zero's (which lasted all of 17,000 miles and scared the s*** out of me in a heavy rain). I don't have too many miles on the tires yet, and haven't had the opportunity to fully explore their limits, but the car rides much better and seems to be more responsive. I have had the opportunity...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I bought these tires simply because the Michelin Super Sports were too pricey for me at the time, and this tire came second and was a few bucks cheaper. I'm not regretting these tires at all- however theres certain things about this tire that I wonder if I should have shelled out a couple more bucks for the Super Sports. When I first got these tires put on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

Purchased these tires before going on vacation to the mountains of North Carolina last spring. These tires were far superior to the original Micheline tires the Honda came with. We experienced several days of heavy rains and we were driving on switchback mountain roads. Please remember that an Accord sedan is not a sports car, but I have to say that these...  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 Continental ExtremeContact DWS

This is my 2nd set that I have purchased for this car. It's an excellent tire for all conditions, and gets me through Northern Indiana winters with confidence. My only complaint is that I wish I could get more life out of the tire. My last set got me to about 45,000 miles. If it were spring or summer, I would have run them at least another 5,000 miles but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Even though I've only had the new tires on my car for a couple of weeks I am very impressed in how they handle in the snow and icy conditions here in Massachusetts. The winter of 2015 here has been nasty! So far the tires have held up to being a top grand-touring tire. Will give update in spring...   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

Eibach Sportline vs Eibach Pro-Kit: The Must-Read Differences in Lowering Springs

Interested in lowering your car, but aren't sure if the Eibach Sportline Spring Set or Eibach Pro-Kit Spring Set is right for your vehicle? How much wheel gap do you want to eliminate? The Pro-Kit Spring Set will lower a vehicle generally 1.00" to 1.25", while the Sportline Spring Set will provide you with approximately 1.50" to 2.00" of lowering...  Read More

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

I've made a few modifications and upgrades to my G8. The best upgrade for the money has been these tires. We have some challenging roads in western PA and eastern OH and the Comp2's are up to them all. It's possible to get stupid with these tires, but they'll let you know before they break loose. They're great in wet weather, and I got caught in snow once...  Read More

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

2005-2009 Mustang V6 owners, UPGRADE TO THIS TIRE FIRST BEFORE ANY OTHER HANDLING UPGRADES. This is the best performance value replacement tire and most profound handling upgrade for your car when upgrading to the 18-inch X 8.5/9 inch wheel.The lower profile and moderately stiff sidewall eliminates the bouncing and bounding of the stock 16-inch tire, and you...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I had a set of Pirelli tires on my 04 Mazda3 s5door. Once they warmed up, I had traction through almost any corner I found on the roads. But the cons of the tire made me look elsewhere. 1st, they had an enormous amount of road noise. Not quite as bad as being back in my old Jeep, but you still had to raise your voice to carry on a conversation, or turn the...  Read More

Winter Tires and Wheels for Your New Honda Accord

The 2014 Honda Accord is one of the top-selling cars in America. In most cases, it comes equipped with Michelin or Goodyear all-season tires, which are suitable for mild winters. If you reside in an area that experiences severe winters, with substantial snowfall and icy conditions, a set of winter / snow tires will be a big improvement over your...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

First the mileage is in KMs. Secondly, I love this tire and tread design / compound. Currently @ 3/32s and finally starting to notice the back end getting squirrely in the rain, which hasnt happened up until now. These initiate any movement well, whether panic emergency type or just changing lanes, hold a line in a corner, resist hydroplaning well and shed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Nero

I bought a brand new 2012 VW Golf almost exactly 2 years ago, and put P Zero Neros on with just a few miles on the odo. Currently (9/24/14) the car has about 46K and change showing, so without exaggeration, I have driven the Pirellis more or less 45,000 miles over 2 years. Just had the car inspected today- there is still 5-6/32 of tread left. They easily...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I've seen a decent amount of snow in milwaukee this year and these tires are just outstanding. With the power of the STI I have broken them loose but they were still gripping the entire time, and the wheel spin was due to the amount of salt the city is dumping this year. I thought they might be a little squishy in a hard cornering situation but wow was I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx A1-A A/S

These are OEM tires on my 2009 Infiniti G37x. They are driven in spring/summer/fall and never in the snow. I put 37,000 miles on them.The Dunlop is an average tire with good road holding (dry/wet)on the highways. However it creates fairly loud noise on road joints. During the last year the car jarred on ruts and became very sensitive on the steering (pulling...  Read More

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

Excellent dry; good wet, but hydroplaning could be improved; Note these tires do have M+S rating; got them because they can be driven in subfreezing MI late fall/early spring (use winter tires but can't keep them on car from Oct to April) - acceptable in dry/wet/slush & 3+ inches of snow when tread depth is over half; slippery in light snow/ice; noisy at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2

I was looking for a good set of summer tires. With all the brand names floating around out there, I decided to try the BF Goodrich G-Force KDW2 225/40 ZR18 for the front and 255/35 ZR18 for the rear. Even though the mileage used is only 1080 because the car is only driven in the Spring, Summer and Fall. Love these tires. It is as advertised.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact ContiSeal

Had these OE tires rotated on my new '13 VV CC at the first service interval at 10,000 miles Tires rotated front to back and they started making noise. Thought maybe they would settle in after a bit. Switched to my dedicated snow set up for the winter about a month after having them rotated and forgot about it during the long winter we had in NE Ohio. Just...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

Ok so here is my story...much of like the previous CR-V owners, the stock tires, whether the Dueler's or the Continentals...don't really satisfy the driver or the car. I was stuck with the Dueler's last winter, and instead decided to drive my Honda Civic in the snow. I stretched out the life of my Dueler's to about 28,500 miles. Since then, about November...  Read More
