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

My IS-350 has the staggered fitment: 225-40/18 and 255-40/18. I average 17K miles annually, mostly highway with aggressive city driving. I wanted summer tire performance with better wear and I hoped that the Pilot Sport A/S 3's would deliver.I bought the car used and the dealer installed Firestone Wide Ovals on the front and Fierce Instincts on the rear. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

This is the OEM tire on my Lincoln MKX. I've actually been happy with this tire and it has given superb performance. I have noticed over the past 5K miles or so that it's beginning to get a bit noisy (especially in the rear of the vehicle) over certain road surfaces. Where it used to hiss it now roars. Concurrent with the increased road noise I have noticed...  Read More

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

we replaced the original tires with these I can't express enough how much better these are. Both summer and winter driving and we live in northern Michigan. even with all the snow we had last winter, we had no problem going anywhere. Stopping and starting in snow was no problem. I would definitely recommend these to anyone. Just had car in for service and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

As I was having the tires installed, the temp. dropped from 30 degrees down to 12 degress... All day it had been lightly raining and snowing on and off... When the temp drop so suddenly, the roadways turned to ice and the Lake Michigan snow machine started to near whiteout conditions. These tires were and are remarkable as my 6-speed manual Jetta responded...  Read More

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

The testing and the results posted from Tire Rack helped my decision to get these tires. I chose them because of the results for snow traction as well as the overall results. Very happy with them, especially considering all of the snow we've gotten lately. They seem to handle better in the deeper snow than a small amount though. They handle rain with no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Great buy! better than Michelin for sure. Gas mileage is down but is okay. better handling,steering, wet traction, good in snow . Tire look great sporty look. happy with tires so far. My old Michelin cracked on the side just after one year purchase car new, dealer said call Michelin, Michelin give me run around, and refuse to stand by their product. I will...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I'm writing this review after so few miles only because the WS80 is new this year and user reviews are few and far between, especially for RWD. Plus we've had quite a range of conditions over the last 3 weeks: rain, standing water, slush, -10F icy roads, a snowfall of 4 and several lighter dustings. So I can offer more than they were great on the 10 mile...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2

I purchased the Goodyear F1 Asymmetric 2 to replace the Goodyear F1 Supercar OEM tires on my 2010 Mustang GT500. I purchased my GT500 with 15K miles on the car and put another 2K miles on the stock F1's over the past year. The original tires still had 3/32 to 4/32 tread but they just did not seem to hook up at all, especially bad when supercharger enaged...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

The Acura came with Michelin Latitude Tour all season tires. Within a year, the car had developed an annoying drone sound that was really noticeable after 35 mph. The dealer couldn't find the cause so we lived with the noise rather than spend more time at the dealership. We travel a lot so we got used to the dull roar, but when our kids drove the car, they...  Read More

Why Doesn't My Car Come with a Spare Tire?

Is the spare tire becoming extinct? With a growing number of vehicles in the United States being sold without one, it could appear that way. In fact, many drivers are unaware they may not have one until they need one. New cars, trucks and SUVs seldom come with a spare tire, wheel and jack kit due to an increasing demand for fuel economy and storage space....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Got these tires 225/50R17 for '98 Accord V6 LX sedan (291K miles) on an exchange as recommendation . The Primacy MXV4 had a left radial pull and needed front axle balancing about once a week. After Dealer did aligned the vehicle 8 times and balanced the tires 11 times, replaced every worn out front-end suspension part. I have tried every major tire on this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I am a licensed mechanic and car dealer for over 25 years and now an RV dealer and am very impressed with this tire. My 2012 Camry Hybrid XLE came with Bridgestones and barely got 31000 miles before wear bars showed. I researched all tires available with low rolling resistance and the Yokohama was rated 1st above all the others and ended up being the lease...  Read More

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

Picked this tire to replace the OE Michelin tires which had started to culp at 30,000 miles .. dealer and independent shop both said nothing they could do ... I had rotated at 5,000 miles faithfully. This tire is quieter, rides better and is excellent in the rain. This is my wife's car and I keep it in tip-top condition. Ready to put the same tire on my 2006...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I love these tires on the CX-9! They are the smoothest running tire I have ever owned on any car. They improve the luxurious feel of the car and are much better than the stock HL400's. The only area they could be better in is steering crispness. I remember driving the car off the dealer lot new and was amazed how it turned into corners like on rails. But...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax HP

I put these on my car last January to replace a set of factory defective Conti's. Did so based on the reviews and that they were only like $93/ea. I noticed right away my car handled better, and the shake was gone (bad Conti's). I didn't notice any difference in noise or fuel economy. Cornering was a little better. I rated the tires on all level at an 8-9...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

I have owned two sets of these Pirelli's. The first was on a company Subaru Outback. I was so impressed I ordered a set for my 2014 JCW Coupe. I took delivery of my car just before Christmas 2013 so I had them put on immediately before picking up the car from the dealer. We get a lot of snow and a lot of snow types from 7-11 slushy to deep packed here in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Car came with Dunlop tires. I cannot believe Lexus put those tires on this car. I got rid of them at 25K. I have a 2000 LX 470 and have always been happy with the LTX M/S. These tires are even better. There is nothing bad about this tire. Bought at Tire Rack. Had dealer mount 'em. Better everything: handling, ride, traction and even gas mileage. I hunt, so...  Read More

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

i have an audi sq5, which i purchased in DEC 2013. the car comes with summer rubber so i had to get those off the car asap. i shopped around on tirerack for the michelin's that the dealer recommended, and after i was done laughing at the price, i did a generic search for all tires that would fit the sq5. i came across these Generals and having no experience...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

10k miles and all 4 tires cracked in the tread, Michelin didn't want to cover the replacement of these tires, my dealer wouldn't let me leave the lot with these tires and took it on themselves to put new tires on the car, that was the last Michelin I will ever own   Read More

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

I just ordered a pair of 225/40/18 AS-03s for the front of the car and while looking at when I purchased these AS-03s for the rears, I saw that it was July of 2011. It's been about 20,000 miles and the rear tires still look like new. In that period I had totally worn out a front pair of Sumitomos that I had bought from another dealer (my Generals got...  Read More
