Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I struggled with making the final decision of identifying which tire to install on my '15 Challenger R/T Scat Pack. My car is a daily driver where I utilize the concrete pavement freeway, mostly, to and from work, including in town driving on weekends. I do not live in a state where driving in snow presents a concern. Given the temperate year round climate...  Read More

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

Although we have had these tires a relatively short time, in Colorado late winter and spring it isn't difficult to find a myriad of conditions. We live in a rural area but the wife's job takes her all over the front range. We noticed an immediate difference from our OEM Michelins. Pavement cracks are quietly and easily absorbed; wet traction after a snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I have a 2013 Infiniti G37 S Sedan, I put on some Nissan GT-R 20 front wheels at all 4 corners. I have owned all sorts of tires in my lifetime, some very good high performance tires. These Michelin Pilot Sport 4S's have to be right up there in easily the top 5, if not indeed the best. I only reserve judgment based on only having these tires about 3 weeks...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I love these tires! I replaced the completely adequate Michelin Primacy mxm4 tires which I put nearly 60000 miles on with these Premier AS tires last fall. I plan on using my 06 AWD Magnum RT as primarily a winter car since recently purchasing a 15 Challenger RT. I believe that the improved wet and snow traction is well worth the premium price point. They...  Read More

(GTI with Performance Pkg-6sp manual) Initial Review 2500mi Tires purchased to replace OEM All Season Hankook H Rated VENTUS S1 NOBLE2. (Planning to purchase Goodyear PSS summer tires in the spring.)This has been a challenging winter in Chicago area with significant snow, ice and very low temperatures. The Pirelli Scotto3 (non-run flat) have performed with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

I live in northern Vermont and frequently drive on unpaved mountainous roads. I can't compare these to other winter tires since I only use Blizzaks in the winter and have been completely satisfied. I slow down and drive the conditions. Ice is my biggest concern as well as road noise. Pros: excel in icy conditions, quiet ride that is comparable to OEM all...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

I have 130,000 km's on these tires and I still have 60% life left on them. These tires are awesome in all weather. Icy roads are a challenge for these tires but it might be too that my car is not very heavy. Handling is awesome in dry weather and in wet weather as well. I am going to purchase these tires for my other vehicle. Tread life is amazing. I've had...  Read More

Worried About How Your New 2016 - 2017 Chevy Camaro Will Do in the Snow? Relax, We Got Your Back!

Having a fun sporty car used to mean that you also needed a second car to handle the winter months. This is no longer the case as modern traction control systems and ever improving winter tires mean the fun doesn't have to stop when the snow falls. For example, you have a 2016 Camaro and we have several tire and wheel options to get you through the...  Read More

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 Dunlop Signature HP

I wanted the 18 wheels on my Challenger and bought a SXT. Replaced the 235/55/18 with these Dunlop Signature HP 255/55/18. The original were touring tires and had a good ride. These wider ultra high performance Dunlops have turned my Challenger into a Mini Scat -------- Cat. They handle much better and only weigh in at 2 extra pounds. Plus the wider tires...  Read More

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

It is somewhat difficult to distinguish the performance benefits of these tires from those of permanent AWD. A set of Yokohama ENVigor ultra high performance all-season tires, which preceded the current set of Cinturato P7 All Season Plus tires, provides the primary benchmark by which comparison may be drawn.Winter Storm Jonas of 2016 was a challenge for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These tires have been an absolute joy. The OEM Dunlops were garbage in comparison. The Michelins have proven to be decent for tread wear given they are high performance summer tires. On very few occasions I have been able to break traction with them despite my best efforts with a stage 1 STI. The Dunlops would squiggle about all over, coupled with an...  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 Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I mostly plonk around the local twisties and highway with my 355, but a recent ~90 mile introductory track day at the nearby road course really put these babies front-and-center as incredible performance tires. A two mile ring with 9 total turns, including a sequence of diabolical hairpins, challenged me like I've never been challenged as an amateur sport...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This review is about the DWS 06 but I've also had the earlier DWS on all 3 family cars. I loved the DWS but the DWS 06 does seem to be a worthy upgrade. Live in Massachusetts and drive to the mountains in northern NY (Adirondacks) quite a lot too. Absolutely no problem getting around in wet/dry/mild snow in MA - but I do swap on real snows for the mountains...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

I drive a 96 Sentra 100 miles a day, mostly all highway. Much of this driving is on cruise control at 55-65 mph. This is what I would consider light duty for these tires. I do not challenge these tires much, but I have driven with them in all sorts of weather, including deep show, and they've been flawless. I have never slipped, hydroplaned, skidded, or even...  Read More

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

Driving a hot rod Dodge Challenger with a 5.7L Hemi can go through tires in a hurry!!!haha I went through 2 other types of high performance tires quickly which only lasted around 18,000 miles each set. No I do not punch it, burn rubber or race it. I went through 2 sets just on highway commuting. I purchased Goodyear Eagle Sport A/S 245/45 20 103W. Best...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Since my WRX comes with summer only tires I bought these mounted on rims from Tire Rack. I grew up in Wisconsin but when it snows, Tennessee mountain driving is far more challenging than WI. ever was. Put on 1100 miles last winter and 1900 so far this winter on mostly dry roads - tires have been even better this year due to break in last year. I live on top...  Read More
