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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I up grated my wheels from stock 16 wheels to 17 '04 STI BBS wheels. I was driving on Continental DWS. They were great tires and I have bumped them as my reserve winter tire, not much snow in Alabama but just in case. I have yet to test the tires in the wet as it has not rained thus NA atm. Will update when I get the opportunity. I was debating between these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

These Michelins were OEM when we bought the car new. We now have 62000+ miles on them with over 50% of original tread remaining. At about 55,000 miles I began to hear some growling coming from the right front and thought it might be the wheel bearing pack. Before changing out the bearing pack I rotated the tires ahead of schedule and the noise moved to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

Drove 200 miles each way to NJMP for a 2 day HPDE. Running stock pressure on stock BBS wheels. These tires are a big improvement in terms of overall grip compared to my Michelin Pilot Super Sports that were on the car prior. Performed very similar to the Dunlop Star Spec's but communicates a little less before it lets go (the squealing is a little muted)....  Read More

Best All-Season Tires for Mazda's Mazda6

The Mazda6 is Mazda's mid-size car entry offered since 2002. The third-generation hit the streets for model year 2014 as a four-door sedan with options of either manual or automatic transmission. Without a six-cylinder engine option, some may suggest it loses appeal to some people. However, fuel economy numbers in the high 30s will grab your attention. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I'm impressed with the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 even though I have only driven less than 500 miles. I agonized over the performance/cost trade-off with my previous replacement tire favorite, the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. The entire experience with Tire Rack was impressive - the customer service and the efficient transaction handling - plus setup for local...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I use these only during spring through fall, and put on four Blizzaks for the winter. With only 6500 miles so far I'm not sure I can accurately address the durability/tread life of the tires, but generally speaking I'm pleased with them. They seem to have plenty of grip in both wet and dry conditions though I tend to spin one wheel very slightly (I don't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I wanted a reliable set of winter tires, as soon as I had bought my rear wheel drive MB. I drive a lot, mostly highway, on I94 and I90 between Ontario and Minnesota, crossing Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin. I have to admit, these tires have performed beyond my expectations for winter tire experience on other brands in my prior cars. I have been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R

Well this is a quick update. I just fitted these tires on a brand new set of 17x9 RPF1 wheels to be used for spirited driving in canyons and on the track. I did a quick Sunday night shakedown of this new package and alignment, and thus far everything is golden. Alignment - Camber - Front -2.8L/-2.7R - Rear -2.4L/-2.2R Toe in +.06 Front / +.01 RearFTG Front -...  Read More

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

The Optima SX is a great car but one of its biggest drawbacks is harsh ride and road noise. Going from the stock Nexen tires to these Comp 2 tires was a surprising improvement on both fronts. Tire noise is close to half of what it was with the stock tires and ride comfort is better. The sidewalls extend just a bit further to protect the wheels from...  Read More

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

Let me start by stating that I have not autocrossed or tracked my car. I use my car purely for spirited canyon driving, but that was not an option to select.My first set was in oem ap2 sizing (215/245) on oem wheels. My previous two sets of tires were re-11a, and every tire before that was the oem re-050. I now have ~110k miles of driving on the car, with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone FR740

This tire was oem 215/45/17 on my new Corolla. I just performed the 5k rotation myself and wish to post my observations. I got this car to supplement a 2004 Corolla with 70 series tires as my comparison. The biggest change I noticed was ride quality . The 45 series is excellent and has no road noise that bothers me. The car is quiet at freeway speeds to...  Read More

Does your Jaguar F-TYPE lie parked in the garage during the winter months just begging to be driven? Even a weekend spin is not advisable with sticky summer tires during cold, wintry conditions. The Jaguar F-TYPE is too great a car to store away for months at a time! Performance Winter / Snow tires will give your F-TYPE some grip on cold days and snowy...  Read More

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

Had these wheels for about 6 months now. I don't put too many miles on my personal car because I have a company car i get to drive most of the time. So far these tires have been amazing. Freeway noise is none intrusive, the handling in all the weather conditions have been great. I think the biggest aspect i have notices is these tires performance in wet...  Read More
