Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Huge improvement over the OE Eagle F1s. Several AXs and two track days, about 1000 miles on the street and no noticeable wear. Two days at Texas World Speedway in the rain - MPSSs provided excellent wet grip, a couple of small slips that were easily corrected. Several other cars (in Novice) spun but I was able to get as much power down as I wanted with no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I am an aggressive diver and wanted an aggressive snow so based on the reviews I ordered these for my AWD WRX. I was disappointed at the way they looked thinking they did not look aggressive enough. Now that I finally got to drive in some good snow I am impressed. First snowfall I drove through the snow mound left by the plow in my driveway, up my hill,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I work in a location ~160 miles from home during the week. I drive home on the weekends to be with my family. My home is in a place that people from the boonies call the sticks. Anyway, I am in Virginia, and we don't get the same amount of snow as probably many people who buy this tire live, but when we get it, it takes VDOT days to get out here to clear the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

I recently purchased this set of tires for a second/winter set of wheels for my MX-5. My MX-5 is my year-round daily driver, so having the second set is a necessity. My summer tires are Bridgestone S-04 Pole Positions that came with the car when I purchased it 2 months ago. It was like driving a block of ice on an ice skating rink. So, I had to make a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I live in Chicago IL where winters can get bad at times and I own a 2015 Buick Verano with OE 18 tires which are horrible in any depth of snow, so I bought and downsized (YES THEY FIT) to 16 Blizzak WS80 tires (215/60R16 95H) and wheels to swap during summer and winter and I must say these Blizzak WS80 tires are amazing. We got 10 inches of snow and my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

Because a hip replacement made clutching difficult for my wife, we reluctantly replaced our E36 BMW with a 2015 4 Door Mini Cooper S with 6 sp Autotrans (remarkably good, btw - the first slush box I have not hated). Since she was about to take a month long road rip in Feb 2016 from Portland, Oregon across the Siskiyou Mountains to Cal, I wanted to make sure...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

I bought the Continental WinterContact tires mounted on 17 Axis Modle Five gunmetal wheels from Tire Rack as seasonal replacements that I can swap in my garage. The wheels look better than my stock Audi S3 18 wheels. I mounted them three weeks ago and have already driven in three snow storms in Portland, Oregon and Washington. I'm shocked at how well they...  Read More

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

The Michelin Sport A/S 3+ are super sticky on 328i 2010 Sport suspension. I staggered tires to match sports package, which was not set up prior to used car purchase. The previous owner did the economic non sport setup where all tires were the same size. The new setup increases car performance in ways I love. It has improve my ride comfort (luxury-goes over...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

My set of tires are dedicated winter tires mounted on OEM wheels. I currently have approx 1200 miles of driving in my daily commuter - '17 Volt. As a winter tire, the snow and ice traction is way above and beyond compared to the all season LRR tires that came with the vehicle. Just had the first snow storm (didn't drive through it though) recently but did...  Read More

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

First off, I am no tire expert. Second, I have only driven these tires for 800 miles. Third, I am not a professional driver, I have never tracked a car, and I have never had any track/racing lessons. I live in New York City and do most of my driving on the weekends getting out of the city to either eastern Long Island or upstate New York. I seldom drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Winter Slalom KSI

I purchased these tires with wheels for winter driving in North East PA. I live in an area with lots of hills and I see plenty of people slipping and sliding and on rural roads where you don't have a lot of room before you are in the ditch. I really want to stop and turn and I believe winter tires are best for me where I live.I'm very happy with the Tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have driven on these tires for the last 3 months in (Oct-Dec) Wasilla/Anchorage, Alaska. We have had several Ice/Fog conditions and some snow with several cars that ran off the road. These tires have performed as well, if not better then the last 3 sets of Blizzaks that I have run on this car. I will say this- these tires are worthless until they warm up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I got these tires put on in advance of a snowstorm. The stock tires that came with the car were very mushy in the corners and they had very little rain / snow traction. Even with all wheel drive, I'd routinely lose traction. So, getting the Bridgestones put on was a treat, albeit expensive. >I came here to write this review because after driving in the snow,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

My Del Sol is basically a good weather car, lowered with low profile tires. It looks nice and gets great gas mileage, but it rides like a skateboard in good weather, and a boogie board in the wet, hydroplaning at the thought of water. Southern California was perfect for this car. Now in Wyoming, not so much.Knowing that the low profile tires were ok for good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I moved from Texas to New Jersey, bringing my rear wheel drive Infiniti coup with me. With the original Dunlop all season tires, driving in the winter was almost impossible. Since I drive this car only about 8000 miles a year, I chose to go with XIce Xi3, and keep the snow tires on the car year round. So far, it has been a great experience. The tires have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Noticed I've already put 25,000 miles on these tires over the last year so I decided to write a review. Overall really enjoying them. To break it down in quick categories: Dry: as good as I can ask for, the car holds to whatever I put it through, and even more speed than I am comfortable with at times.Wet: Less traction than dry at slow speeds, easier to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

The tires were O.E. on my new 2016 VW Golf Sportwagon. When I purchased the car I immediately got larger wheels and summer performance tires, purchased from Tire Rack, which I installed immediately . I swapped them back to the O.E. all-season Bridgestones in early Nov. with the arrival of colder weather. What a huge change for the worse! After driving about...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 Plus (H- or V-Speed Rated)

After 46,320 miles of very aggressive high speed (typically 85 mph) highway and spirited city driving the tire shop says I still have about half the thread left. Tires were worn only on the inside because car was out of allignment. I was going to upgrade to a larger wheel size but with such good thread wear I am buying another set of these OEM tires.   Read More

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

The price amd the ratings are what persuaded me to purchase these tires. There extremly grippy tires, extremly soft rubber that basically sounds like their peeling off the road. I have yet to drive in snow/ice conditions but as far as rain they never miss a beat. I will be purchasing another set for my new car here in about a month. I would recommend these...  Read More

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

Changed from 18 wheels and Dunlop run flat tires to 16 wheels and non-run flats for a more compliant ride. This setup is more appropriate for the car with a tire that rides much smoother and quieter than before. The SC430 is not any sort of sports car so I don't know what Lexus was thinking with those 40 profile run flats. The car tracks well and feels more...  Read More
