Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have had these tires for 34,000 miles on my 2006 Audi A4 Quattro and tomorrow I will be taking my Audi to the local Just Tires store to have another set of the exact same tires put on my car. That is how satisfied I was with it. The tires felt great when cornering, and when driving in the rain. I took a trip to Yosemite National Park in February and they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport

I purchased a set of these tires for my '88 Toyota Supra in staggered sizes: 235/45R17 Front, 255/40R17 Rear My car is summer only, and used as a fun car and not a daily driver. I wanted a set of performance tires that weren't so expensive that I would feel bad doing a track day, auto-x, or a smoky burnout. These tires fill that gap quite well.There's no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 3

I have a Focus ST with a full stage 3 engine package, suspension package and upgraded brakes. I belong to the local ST club and we do spirited mountain runs, track days and autocross. Since this car is also my DD I was going to go with the F1's but due to a mistake by my local tire store I ended up with these (long story). I have to say that these tires are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

We had 56,000 miles on the OEM Goodyear tires and the Toyota dealer was pushing the same tires as a replacement. I decided to go with Tire Rack and the Continentals and I am really glad I did. These are quite, and really improve the ride and handling of our Prius. The Goodyears were hard, noisy, and not at all as sure-footed as these; wet or dry. We even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

My 2013 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite came with Michelin Primacy MXV4s. I've been a long time Michelin fan and have had experience with these tires on my old Accord. They are great passenger touring tires, and I can see why Honda would put them on their top of the line van. The MXV4s are very smooth and nice riding touring tires for cars. On a heavy Van/SUV...  Read More

Track and Autocross Tire Choices for Your Lotus Elise

Quite a few years ago, a friend of mine used to store his red Lotus Elan in our family's pole barn. He didn't drive it as much as he wanted, but when he did, it put a huge grin on his face. Lotus Elans are a rare sight these days, however many of us were fortunate when a Lotus Elise visited Tire Rack for an autocross event. Just like my friend's ride, this...  Read More

Great Savings for Your 2012 Mercedes-Benz E350 4Matic Sport Package

Love your 2012 Mercedes-Benz E350 4Matic Sport Package but looking for a more cost-effective tire option?   Check your tire sidewalls to verify size, but the 2009-2015 Mercedes E350 4Matic w/Sport Package typically came with 245/40R18 tires. 245/40R18 is usually a more expensive size, but we've just received 245/40R18 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus tir...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Bought these for my daughter's car. She has put 20,000+ miles on them without trouble. Unfortunately, she got a flat last week and drove about 1-1/2 miles on it to get home. It was the front passenger tire and it was ruined. To her defense, she was scared, cold and just wanted to get home. The tires had worn even and still had 6/32 of tread left. The tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A

Customer Service: I had these Radial T/A 70HR Tires for 27 years on my 76 Trans Am (2nd set tires and owner of the car since 1976)and finally had to replace them because of age. They were in brand new condition when I took these off of my car....no cracks at all...anywhere! B.F Goodrich wanted these tires for examination and tests so I had them sent there.I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

I purchased these tires on October 4, for a 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan at the store in South Bend,IN. We have had very good experience with Firestone tires on our family farm, although I knew that Firestone had issues in the past with passenger car tires. These tires are much quieter than the Hankook tires they replaced; the handling leaving Tire Rack in South...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Bought a set of these for my daughter's car in December, 2011. Have worn evenly and been great tires. As the father of a teenage daughter, driving for 7-8 hours alone to see a boyfriend 3 states away during the winter, I'm awfully glad that she had these tires combined with the VW 4Motion system. She never had a single problem and she rarely checks her tire...  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

Can You Put Non-Run-Flat Tires on Run-Flat Wheels?

Many drivers are uncertain whether they can put non-run-flat tires on wheels that originally came with run-flat tires. The short answer: yes. Run-flat tires and regular tires that are the same numeric size will have the same physical dimensions, and can fit properly on the same wheels. The only difference with run-flat wheels is they usually have an extra...  Read More

Added Sense of Security with Continental's ContiComfortKit

Many owners of new vehicles are often surprised to find that their car, truck or SUV purchased in the last few years lacks a spare tire. In an effort to reduce weight and increase usable cargo space, many automakers are now relying on supplying roadside assistance in place of a temporary or full-size spare tire. While nothing can take the place of a spare...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

I purchased this tire based upon test results. Tire Rack has always provided great tests, no other tire store that I know of provides this service. They really liked this tire because it gripped like a Summer tire, but was an all-season tire. Well, the grip is really good. But the tire has two big faults.1. Tire squeal! This tire squeals loudly way before it...  Read More

Do I have to Put Run-Flat Tires on My BMW?

When it comes to tires for a BMW, many aren't pleased with the harsh ride and short treadlife of the Original Equipment run-flat tires. However, many owners are unsure if they're able to make the switch to a standard tire. The answer is not as difficult as you might think. BMWs can make the switch to non-run-flat tires, the same is true when switching to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup

This is a barely street legal track tire. This is why I buy them. I drive to and from the track, some around town, and use them exclusively on the track. I have even purchased a top carrier to store the second set. You can switch them side to side and they communicate what is happening on the road very well. I have had 15 or 16 sets of Michelin Pilot Sport...  Read More
