Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2

These are great tires, great traction, great cornering and responsiveness whether on the road or the track. They make the rather stiff ride of a BMW M Roadster more comfortable, are very quiet on the highway and happily cruise along at 100+ mph with excellent road feel. I occasionally take my car to the big track at Willow Springs or the Mazda Raceway (aka...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z II

Have had these sitting in the garage after taking them off a couple years ago when my daughter took the car off to college. Just put them back on for the spring, replacing worn out Kumho Ecsta 4X All Seasons. On the way home from getting them mounted it was like getting to know an old friend again. Better responsiveness, launch at stop lights, and general...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

I bought a set for my 2012 Malibu along with H&R lowering springs and KYB shocks. I love these tires with my suspension set up. I drive my car hard and the S-Drives keep my big car planted when I'm cornering hard (100+kms) Great wet and dry traction. Will definitely be hitting tire rack up again for another set!   Read More

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

When I drove my brand new 2011 Outback home from the dealers lot in Chicago to east Central Indiana, I wondered if I had made the worst purchase decision of my life. I had bought the car with plenty of research, and in town test driving, but I had never had it on the interstate, on top of that day 1 was windy. To say I was directionally challenged would be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11A

I bought these tires as they came recommended as the most aggressive non-R compound performance tire. 205/55/16 up front and 225/50/16 in the rear. Newly installed, they immediately transformed the handling of my car from the old Fuzions that the previous owner had on it. I couldn't believe the responsiveness of the steering and the new levels of grip that I...  Read More

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

These are excellent performance summer tires with emergency all season ability. I would not buy them and plan to drive in snow.I purchased these tires as dedicated summer tires, as I typically run X-Ice on winter wheels. I put them on bright and early in the spring, since they are advertised as all season tires. My initial impressions were great. Dry / wet...  Read More

Preview: BFGoodrich g-Force Rival S

This spring, BFGoodrich is introducing the new g-Force Rival S. Building on the successful design of the original g-Force Rival, BFGoodrich is expanding the line to include the S version. The primary difference is a softer compound that will come up to operating temperature faster and yield higher maximum grip. This is ideal for autocross competitors, time...  Read More

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

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
