Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS

I hear so many people critique this tire and three things always come up: (1) treadwear,(2)wet traction and (3) price. First of all, this is my third set of the Eagle LS tire on two different cars. Both my cars are heavy luxury sedans that are made for performance. One is a 2000 Chrysler 300M, the other is a Cadillac CTS. Both cars are heavy in the...  Read More

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

I'm very please with this tire. Performance is more than adequate for this car (high suspension, but has heavier sways and is chipped). Ride comfort is excellent and the tire is plenty quiet for me. I previous had a set of undersized Michelin Pilot Super Sports on this car and don't feel I have lost any performance with the A/S 3+ on this car.   Read More

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

I put this set on my 2006 Mazdaspeed 6 right when I purchased the vehicle, so I can't compare it to other tires on this car. But these tires are awesome! They grip in every scenario and perform great in every aspect. My Mazdaspeed 6 is AWD, but when lifting the e-brake up one click (disengages rear wheels), the tires still grab extremely well with 270 crank...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

I love to drive in the snow now. I couldn't wait until the first snow fall in Chicago. They don't plow and salt the side streets right away, so it was a great opportunity to test these tires out. These tires perform very well in snow 3-9 or more inches. I have a low profile front end which catches the snow and slows my momentum. But I had confidence that I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z II

I've driven about 3,000 miles on these tires and they grip nicely driving through 1-3 inch puddles during Chicago down pours and flash flooding. I can confidently pass cars at 30-40mph without losing steering response and grip due to hydroplaning. Stopping and acceleration has also improved on wet roads and during rain storms. No significant wear on thread...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I purchased these for my 2013 Mercedes S550 sport package with 20 AMG Wheels. So far they appear to have a very quiet, comfortable ride and don't feel as jarring or harsh over NJ road surfaces as my previous Michelin Pilot A/S 3 tire's. They feel good as far as high performance handling goes as I'm a spirited driver who leaves my car in sport mode...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

The original tires on my 2008 BMW-X3 with M-sport suspension were Michelin Pilot HX MxM4. I have been driving the car for the past 5 years and hated every minute of its ride. Not only the smallest bumps but also the wave on the road used to transfer to my body. It was very annoying. I preferred the ride of my Z4 with sport package to this car! I recently...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

When my OEM tires contiseals lasted about 50K, so I started to look for a good set of tires that would fit my car. First replacement I bought from local Costco Michelins pilot sport A/S3 as I (was) a big fan of Michelin brand. I drove on them about 300 miles and what I noticed that the were very noisy but with good handling response tires, so I took them...  Read More

Constant and consistent contact with the road...  Read More

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

I'm not often compelled to write positive reviews, I tend towards writing negative reviews to assist others from making the same mistakes I have. In this case, this tire is not a mistake. I am coming from OEM Goodyear LS2 ROF (Run on Flat) tires in 245/45 19 size to the AS/3 + in the same size and the difference is nothing short of transformative.Most...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

Let me start by stating that I have not autocrossed or tracked my car. I use my car purely for spirited canyon driving, but that was not an option to select.My first set was in oem ap2 sizing (215/245) on oem wheels. My previous two sets of tires were re-11a, and every tire before that was the oem re-050. I now have ~110k miles of driving on the car, with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone FR740

This tire was oem 215/45/17 on my new Corolla. I just performed the 5k rotation myself and wish to post my observations. I got this car to supplement a 2004 Corolla with 70 series tires as my comparison. The biggest change I noticed was ride quality . The 45 series is excellent and has no road noise that bothers me. The car is quiet at freeway speeds to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Very happy with these tires. They replaced Bridgestone Potenza RE 70's. The Bridgestones were very noisy, hard riding and wore out in under 20k miles of average driving.Within days of buying the DWS-06's, we drove from Connecticut to Florida and I was very happy I made the change before we left. I went from a car that sounded like it had a bad wheel bearing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

With 13k on the tires, they're about halfway to the wear bars. Wear is even side to side. Much better wear than some other report. Rears wearing a bit quicker than the fronts, as to be expected on a slot car twitching tail suspension like a well prepared Z3 suspension behaves like.Z3 has -2.5 camber front, Front toe 0.16 total toe. ~8 degree caster. -2.8...  Read More

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

Initial review. I struggled when picking tires for this vehicle. 2007 Grand Prix GXP. The car has a very tight suspension and is a real performer for a 4 door full size sedan. I was looking for the perfect balance between ride comfort, something quiet, but yet would maintain the sporty attitude of the car. I think this tire does the trick. Road noise was cut...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

Replaced OEM Dunlop at 25K miles with Ecopia due to bad ride comfort and noise level.Switched to H-rated Ecopia and immediately noticed better and softer ride on bumpy road. Road noise has been significantly reduced as I can listen to radio with volume level 2 even at 70 MPH on highway. I dislike Lexus stiff suspension on RX since I bought the car new. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

I purchased these tires to run on the front of an H-Street class Honda Civic Si. They were used in a final local event (wet) and the state championship (NCAC) in November which I won and was the highest PAXed FWD car. After two events this year they are already corded about 60 runs total. Wear is horrible on this camber limited car, which does have Honda...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I just replaced the original Continental CV95 with these Platinums and the are possibly the best tires I've ever purchased. Important to my driving habits are Road Feel, Cornering, Braking, Acceleration & Wet Traction. Also Treadwear, Durability against NYC potholes and Value are vital. Said and done, this tire exceeds my expectations!This past Summer I had...  Read More

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

I bought my first set of these for my Malone Stage 2.0 tuned Jetta TDI Sportwagen because the price and reviews made it a little more favorable than the Pilot Super Sport. I was very impressed with how much grip these tires have as the TDI is putting out 333tq to the front wheels. This means hook-up is very challenging.I needed new tires for my 911 and I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I changed out the worn out Bridgestone 070Runflats on my GT-R. It's like a different car. Handles better, quieter more comfortable, and supposedly have better tread life. If you set the suspension to Comfort, you hardly have any perception of rough road. My salesman at Tire Rack said the GT-R's with Michelins out handled the stock tires on the One Lap of...  Read More
