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

Bought a full set to replace my previous Hankook S1 Noble2's that were worn. The Hankooks when new had great grip and soft ride quality at first, but the tire took a turn for the worse after about 20k miles where it lost any advantage over an inferior tire. The GForces are a completely different tire, I'd start by comparing it to a more rigid summer...  Read More

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

The BRZ acts completely different. The first day I drove up and down the mountain in the rain. I drove pretty conservative because I didn't know how they would perform (the old tires were bald and had no wet traction at all), but slowly I started pushing further into the curves and was surprised how much wet traction I had.One of the things I always wished I...  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 Michelin X-Ice Xi3

This is my first set of winter tires and also my first year living in a snow climate. I have had very little experience driving in the snow and ice prior to getting these tires. These tires are for my wife's car, so I didn't put the majority of the miles on the tires.What I can say is that I like to push the limits a bit when I am driving in conditions that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Bought these to replace the dreadful Goodyear Assurance's that were on the car when I purchased it. These tires have been great. The traction they have in the rain is unparalleled to any tires I've ever owned. While other's slow down in the rain, I am able to just keep pushing forward, I never feel the least bit unsafe. They really give me a sense of safety....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The Pilots are vast improvement over the factory Potenza run-flats. I made the switch to conventional tires with some trepidation. I have a compressor and plug kit in the trunk, which hopefully will get me home in a pinch. These tires have transformed the car to much more pleasant ride. Traction is phenomenal, directional stability is improved and general...  Read More

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

I bought this set to replace my original factory Bridgestone RE97AS. Those were very noisy, horrible rain traction and wore uneven. I put this set of Michelins on my car at 60,500. They come with 10/32 tread new and I now have 7/32 tread with my car having 100,852 miles. These tires are wearing even, very low noise and the traction is unbelievable on wet or...  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

Ready or Not Winter 2017 is Coming

Last winter definitely started out slowly, but eventually January came round and winter got serious. Are you living in the snowbelt and wondering how bad the winter of 2017 is going to be? Nobody really knows, but we do know it's coming. Do you need to run winter / snow tires? If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow, you should...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

I bought these tires last year from Tire Rack mounted on Sport Edition ST6 bright silver wheels. These wheel look very similar to the stock wheels, but have a bright finish to them that I find very attractive with the Floret Silver paint on my car. You can find Audi center caps on the Internet that will fit, too.I've never been a big fan of Michelin tires,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Just had them installed last week, and it has been RAINING all day every day, ever since! I absolutely LOVE these tires, the road feel is just awesome, solidly 4 feet on the ground..No floatiness. Utterly AMAZING in RAIN..truly awesome..these tires cut along wet pavement as though you were on dry ground, no matter the speed nor amount of standing water,...  Read More

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

This is my third set of Michelins on the car. I had the Latitudes on before these. And I always had to leave the car in 4wd auto mode because they would slip in light rain. The Latitudes were bad tires. With the Defenders I have the tire pressure at recommended manufacture spec. And I have been driving these in rain the past couple days and these tires are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I just purchased these tires last week for use on my moderately modified 2002 Mazda Protege. These tires are incredibly quiet for a snow tire and they roll beautifully. In fact, they feel very similar to the Michelin Energy Saver A/S tires that I use on one of my other cars, a Toyota Prius. The X-ice Xi3 is the BEST overall snow tire in the heavy snow/ice...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

My 300S came with Firestone tires , shot at 26,000.miles Replaces with Michelin Pilot Sport 3 Great ride and at 43,000. miles were done ,Then I read the Tire Rack review on the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus reviews were Great , Tire Rack pricing was good and Pirelli kicked in a $60 rebate . Now I know the Michelin were at the end of the life cycle and a bit...  Read More

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

Still early to tell, but these may be the best tires I've put on this car. Immediate and noticeable difference in sound levels created from these tires. In fact, if you own a VW CC, these tires will fix a common problem of vibration, noise, and thumps reported elsewhere. I had a set of Conti's (good gas mileage, good traction, decent wear), then a set of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus

These tires provide the smoothest ride I've ever experienced in a non luxury car. The most noticeable attribute is the ability to absorb sharp impacts as if they were non-existent. As for small bumps or potholes, I couldn't tell you, I don't know if they exist anymore; with these tires it seems as if they do not! I cannot say much when it comes to handling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

I purchased these tires in November 2013 when I was about to move from Baltimore to Syracuse for work. Syracuse averages 110 inches of snow annually and 2/3 winters here have proven that. I have now put on almost 60k miles on these tires in all conditions, snow, ice, dry, etc. and they are amazing. I think I have had to take my foot off the accelerator a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Although I love to drive, I no longer participate in competitive driving as I approach 70 years of age. I tried Continental DWSs, having switched from Yokahamas about 10 years ago. The stiffened inner tread pattern offers excellent cornering response, yet produces very little noise under normal driving conditions. Hydroplaning just doesn't happen. Tread wear...  Read More

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
