Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek SJ6

I live in the hills of western MA, where we get quite a bit of snow and ice. So I bought these Dunlop Grandtrek SJ6's in P205/70R16 mounted on plain steel 16 wheels for my Crosstrek for winter. They are just a tad taller and narrower than the stock P225/55R17 Yokohamas. No rubbing issues at all, and in the snow, my crosstrek is unstoppable. They are really...  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 Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 Plus (S- or T-Speed Rated)

this is my first set of Bridgestone's and with a $70 rebate I decided to give them a try. I'm going from a 215/70/16 to a 235/55/18 lower profile tire w/OEM Xtreme wheels. I actually like the ride of the 16" oem set of generals HT's, so in comparison the ride is almost identical, which is imo is what I was hoping for. Handling and cornering are greatly...  Read More

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

These tires replace the prior generation Michelin A/S 3's that I had on the car. One of the great features is the 45K mile warranty -- which I used to get into these tires. After 21K miles, the prior set was down to 3/32 in front and 4/32 in rear. They had gotten noisy, harsh, and obviously past their expected traction sweet-spot. So these new A/S 3+'s are a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I was absolutely blown away by these tires on my 05 BMW 325i (which is a rear wheel drive car). I drove through snow and spotty ice with complete confidence as I could hear the tires gripping the snow and ice on what would typically be a white knuckle driving trip. The ultimate test was in a dumping of 12 inches which the plows eventually got off the roads...  Read More

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

When I bought my Volvo used, it had been sitting on the lot since December and had a new set of Bridgestone Blizzaks on. Because I bought the car at the beginning of this summer though, I purchased a new tire/wheel package from Tire Rack and set the winter tires/wheels aside for later use. I chose these g-Force COMP-2 A/S tires based on the Tire Rack ratings...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I ordered subsize wheels (16X6.5 KOSEI K4R LT GREY) and 225/70R-16 MICHELIN PREMIER LTX tires. They were delivered, mounted and balanced, to my home. I wanted to improve the ride on my 2008 CRV with lighter wheels and the smoothest riding tire possible. Each one weighed eighteen (18) pounds less than the Honda wheel/Goodyear tire it replaced. I am pleased to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is my second set of Continental Tires and this set is better than the OEM Continental Tires. In between I had a set of Michelin Primacy tires which I replaced unnecessarily as it turned out for another reason. I consider these to be nearly equal to the Primacys with the Primacy's having the edge in ride and tracking, almost like riding on rails.But here...  Read More

Tires and Wheels for 2017 FIAT 124 Spyder

Start with the ND Miata chassis, sprinkle in some retro Italian style, pop in a 1.4 liter turbocharged Multiair engine and you've got the 2017 FIAT 124 Spyder! With Italian styling and reliability, FIAT has created the perfect summer roadster. Want to add a little more Italian styling to the vehicle? Well, that's easy. Just add a set of wheels from O.Z....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is my second set of these tires in seven years. They are awesome. I still had plenty of tread life left in the front but the back tires were worn down so I opted for a complete set. You cannot get a better set of tires. I do drive aggressively at times and these tires hold true. They grip the road like summer tires in warm weather and maintain traction...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I recently replaced the stock Good Year Eagle Supercar performance tires. When I changed to the Continentals, I found out that my wheels were stacked backwards! Some idiot had probably rotated the tires without paying attention to the staggered sizes. My front tires were 255/45/20 and rears were 245/45/20! Those tires lasted about 24,000 miles with fairly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Cargo G26

The first set of tires were factory installed on this Sprinter 15 wheels and lasted a little over 100K with no additional balancing or rotation. I finally fixed the front right camber problem and now my mileage and steering is very nice. I expect these new tires to go over 110K; maybe 115K. Keep track of tire pressure for the season, front bearings in good...  Read More

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

The first time I pushed the tire in corners it performed so well the safety limiter for the car (it starts to shut down the ignition if the car exceeds the preset tilt limit or higher G forces than the safety engineers programed in the computer) started to slow me down. I see that yellow warning light occasionally and laugh how well these tires perform. They...  Read More

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

This tire is awesome. You just know how special it is, from the moment you start driving...When you cross over any kind of painted surface in the road, you can tell just how sticky the tire is...it sounds like Velcro being ripped apart. I took a VERY SHARP highway exit ramp, at breathtaking speed, I thought I was going to be thrown out of the side window, a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (H- or V-Speed Rated)

So I replaced my Hankook 16 inch Run Flats that came standard on the car when I bought it in 2014 with these Goodyear All Seasons. What a huge difference these All Seasons are compared to the Run Flats. I will never buy another set of Run Flats again (I guess, other than if they come standard on a new Mini and I have no other option). The Run Flats have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Rosso

I have a 08 Mustang GT with only 12K miles on her. Its primarily used as a promotional/show car for my business, Westside Powder Coating, Romulus Michigan. I have done some modifications, one is replaced the factory 17 rims with 19 Ford Racing Track Pak rims. Theses tires 255/50/19 fit beautifully. They really fill up the wheel wells nicely. They replaced...  Read More

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

We didn't realize the car had 18 wheels at purchase. Not a problem, except we usually run Michelin's, which are pretty expensive in this size. So we checked Tire Rack ratings and found these tires...and we have been pleasantly surprised. The tires 'sing' at highway speed which is a little noticeable, but really not an issue at all. They are a lot quieter...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

The tires were great at first, But after about 15,00 they became unbearably noisy. They were so loud I thought I must have a bad wheel bearing. I just had my car inspected and was shocked to find out that it wouldn't pass because of the tires, The tires only had 18,500 miles on them. They were rotated every 5K and wore evenly, just wore out. These tires were...  Read More

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

I bought a 2008 Infiniti G37S a couple moths ago. Love it! It needed new tires to pass MD inspection, so the dealership provided a set of Yok Advan Sport A/S for no additional charge, and they were fine. Unfortunately, with these 19 wheels, the very low aspect ratio looked like trouble in real life situations, since the rims stuck out beyond the sidewall, so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiSportContact 5P

I live in Colorado and have driven these tires in most every condition except heavy snow. Most recently I did an SCCA Track Night with them starting at normal street pressures. These tires are amazing and probably the best I have owned, especially on the track. I've had many other performance all-seasons and these are the best. After a single track session I...  Read More
