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

Given the reviews here, I was expecting a major improvement on the stock Dunlop tires for my Mazda. I wasn't disappointed. These should definitely be broken in before you consider doing a lot of hard driving. The tread blocks are pretty deep, so it will feel a little squirmy for a while.These BFGs have very strong dry grip. Sometimes there's a little initial...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

These were my first set of winter tires. Have since bought winter tires for all my cars. So I'm a believer based on these tires.Took my new driver sons out to learn how to react to a slide in several inches of wet snow. Had them get up to speed and make a turn. I pulled the brake and... nothing. Nothing more than a little slide easily corrected. One son...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

How I drive: - Leave the line fast - On-ramps are drag strips - Move through traffic - Corner hard - Brake early for stops The OEM Firehawk GTs were capable tires, but they wore out in 24K. I had the Firehawk Indys installed on Christmas Eve and all I can say is...this tire is absolutely AMAZING on the 300S!!!So far, I have yet to hear these tires squeak or...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Purchased the MXM4 to replace the oem Goodyear LS that came with TLX V6 AWD - the Goodyear is a very poor choice for this car, shame on Acura for this decision. I was looking for luxury level performance, and the MXM4 delivers without question. Quiet, smooth, dampens road jolts and bumps extremely well. Handling is not sport-level, but is a significant...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

New tires are a tremendous improvement over the OEMs although I have to admit that I've lost 2-3 mpg with these tires. I'll take it for the responsiveness and handling that I gained over the OEMs. Hybrid is a tough car to buy tires for. With electric motor, I more often than not spin tires at stop sign or red light. I've learned to ease into forward motion...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Owning a fleet of sedans in New England winters is a feat due to the ever changing weather conditions. Our sedans move people where they need to go no matter the weather so we needed a tire that can be ever capable. Last winter we deployed the Bridgestone Blizzak on the cars; they were a great tire just a bit on the noisy side and wore in odd patterns. So...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 ZP

Tires stick like you know what on dry warm tarmac. Any water on road forget about it. Do yourself and your car a favor and park it. Otherwise go out on a nice sunny day and have a blast for about 7 thousand miles. Then get the wallet out because that's all folks. But those are 7000 fun if not short miles. There is no stickier tire. PERIOD!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I recently bought my 2010 VW Jetta w. 89k miles & a cheap set of no-name Chinese tires. Over the years I've run Michelin & many other quality brands of tires on luxury, performance & sports cars. I learned years ago the difference a great set of tires can make to the enjoyment of a car. After checking out the Premier A/S on Tire Rack's site, I went w. the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I have been driving these big taxicab -like cars for 30 years, always with Michelin tires-usually Symmetry. They no longer offer those, so I tried the Premier All-Season. Well, they are not kidding when they say all-season. I just drove through the middle of the latest New England blizzard and these tire performed AMAZINGLY. They had excellent traction in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

With this being a higher mileage summer vehicle I had always purchased the cheapest tires I could get. After the last set wore out I decided to try a good tire and went with the Premier A/S. While I was concerned initially about the lower tread of 8.5/32 I only put 5000 or so miles/year on the car so they will last a while. There was a night and day...  Read More

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

After reading reviews, I decided to take the plunge and make my purchase through Tire Rack. When I received them, I was concerned if I would have to contend with road noise with the aggressive thread pattern and to my surprise they are super quiet. Tire Pressure it set to 33.5 cold. These tires are all the rave people have been talking about. The shoulders...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Long Trail T/A Tour

This tire replaced the OEM Michelin's on my company car. They are excellent in light to heavy rain and light snow. The only thing about them is they are slightly noisy compared to the Michelin's. As far as tread wear goes its a little too early to tell but I'm having positive vibes it will be good.   Read More

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

Let me start off by saying these are performance tires so expect a slight trade off in ride comfort/noise over a touring tire. With that said, these tires grip like crazy! I usually only buy two tires at a time so I am still running the stock Michelin Primacy tires in the rear. The car is so much more playful than before and reacts so quickly to steering...  Read More

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

I bought these tires about two weeks ago and i have to say that they are worth every penny. Awesome in the rain they don't spin out and they are much quieter than the summer ones i had on my car. I just went over 2000 miles so i will update later!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

I had a fever, and the only prescription was the ExtremeContact Sport. After my set of all-season tires wore out, I decided to step back into a set of summer "Max Performance" tires. I was immediately blown away with the new Contis. Their exceptional responsiveness quickly brought life back to this 150k mile Miata. That responsiveness is backed-up with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Road test immediately following installation was a mixture of elation and disappointment. Handling definitely much improved, but with substantially increased harshness in ride comfort, and road noise.Followed break-in recommendations, driving carefully for the next 800+ km. Ride comfort improved somewhat. After 1700 km my assessment is performance-wise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I had a set of Nokian WR G3 SUV tires on my previous Subaru and while they gave me great winter performance they were very loud and pretty rough. When I bought the Outback I knew I wanted to replace the factory Bridgestones with something better and I debated about going with a dedicated winter tire but I just didn't want to mess with having to swap tires,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Bought the 2012 Lexus ES 350 new. Its is common knowledge that the OEMs wear out fairly quickly. Relocated to south Florida and installed the Michelin Premiers - what a difference! I am a car guy but tires where near a major factor as don't change tires often so hard to really compare. The difference between the OEM Bridgestones to Michelins is night and...  Read More

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

Will not get 45k out of them. Car sees 60 miles round trip daily. Amazing tire, wont knock it at all! The grip was still VERY good at 3-5/32nds. Down very close to wear bars at 37K, ie 3/32 on out side, 2/32 in center. Used to driving Corvettes and exotics.Great tire if you want southern all season performance, or 90-95% of the Pilot Sport cups while getting...  Read More
