Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX

Compared to the Bridgestone Dueler RF's, I feel like im floating on a cloud. Its almost disturbing. The entire car characteristics changed. significant increase in handling and braking. Haven't tried snow yet. Quiet, and smooth are my thoughts. Looks is decent as well. Thumbs up   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Had these tires for only about 10k, but they are extremely comfortable compared to the Yoko's I had on it. Smooth ride with great grip. I feel like they will last longer than the Pilot Sport 3 or Pilot Sport A/S 3. Michelin pretty much makes some of the best and longer lasting tires on the market. I would recommend this tire to drivers that want a sporty...  Read More

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

2014 640i Gran Coupe Xdrive. Came with Goodyear LS2 Runflats. The ride was so harsh and tires loud that i took them off the car with 3000 miles and i didn't have the reliability issues others have had with no potholes here in Florida. I can't believe BMW sells an 88K luxury car with these tires. I have decided that after going through Performance tires every...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60 RFT

All statements made are COMPARED TO STOCK TIRES, in winter driving conditions. In snow and ice, these tires are drastically different than stock. They allow you to take off a bit quicker, turn a bit faster, and stop a bit shorter. They handle very much like worn stock tires on damp roads, if that makes sense. If you drive in the winter on these, and expect...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The Michelin PSS is an amazing tire, and worth the money. I went with the stock size, 235/50/R18 for the Mustang GT. Compared to my stock BF Goodrich KDW, they made a completely different car. It turned my sloppy muscle car into Porche. However after 7,000 miles, they're already past the wear bars. I do drive it pretty hard in daily driving, and do 2 - 3...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

These tires replaced OEM tires for me. Got them from tirerack.com. I've noticed a huge improvement in smoothness and road noise from mile 1 with them. I have driven about 19,000 miles on them so far. In fact, these are a big step up from the OEM Goodyears in every way except one -- treadwear. That has been surprising given their rating. I got 37,000 miles on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

Excellent treadlife @ 54k miles I'm just down to the wear bars (I monitor pressure, alignment, rotate and still get road force balancing), brilliant wet performance (dropped away on the final days of the tire), dry is still awesome (since they are turning into slicks haha), some feathering but even wear, and very smooth an relatively quiet though the engine...  Read More

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

Not too many miles yet, but a huge improvement over the stock Continental tires (but those did give good service over 60,000+ miles). Of course comparing these to tires you just wore out is kind of unfair, but they handle, sound, and grip better than I ever remember the stock tires. I like them so much I am getting them for my Baja in the next month or so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Excellent tire. I pushed the limits, on private off roads, with hazardous conditions. Deep snow, packed snow and ice. Ice was decent for not being studded. Never disappointed me. There a little rough on the highway, but not bad at all. Tread wear is good for a snow tire. I have about 16,000 miles on them and they still have decent sipping. Probably good for...  Read More

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

Do you want to go fast in an SCCA Solo class requiring 200TW tires? If you do, then buy this tire if it fits on your car. These are simply the best tires for autocrossing you can buy this year for SCCA CAM, Street or Street Touring classes. I have a set mounted on 10.5 inch rims on my Mustang competing in the CAM-C class. Pretty much everyone driving...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I purchased the Bridgestone Driveguard tires in fall 2014 to replace the OEM Continental's. While there are only 9k miles on the tires, they are wearing well, noise levels are relatively quiet (for RFTs), and handling is comparable to the OEM tires. I would definitely consider buying these tires again.   Read More

Back in 2011, we discussed Extreme Performance Summer tires in "What are Extreme Performance Summer Tires?" Though the category itself is still the same, the players have changed. When it comes to Extreme Performance Summer tires, the tires have the following benefits and compromises: Benefits Very fast steering response with lots of steering wheel feedback Sup...  Read More

Is the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R the New Extreme Performance Summer Champ?

Do you love to drive? Do you have a fun car that comes out for track and autocross weekends or do you simply relish the curvy roads of your daily commute? You should consider the sticky grip and razor sharp steering response of an Extreme Performance Summer tire. Last year, the Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Spec tested out to be the top performing tire in...  Read More

Is the Bridgestone DriveGuard Right For You?

Compared to conventional run-flats, the Bridgestone DriveGuard rides better, while offering better value and wear. As a tire that can also be installed on some vehicles that didn't come equipped with run-flats as Original Equipment, many could be skeptical to the idea of switching¬†to run-flats on their vehicle. Isn't a flat when most of us notice our tires...  Read More

Yokohama has been known for their high performance tires amongst enthusiasts in the industry for decades. Tires like the popular S.Drive and its predecessor, the AVS Intermediate, have a special place in the memories of many high performance drivers. ¬† Yokohama offers much more than performance tires. Whether you're looking at touring tires for the family...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I bought these tires for my 2005 Ford Crown Victoria after several winters of getting stuck on a level surface with one inch on snow on it. This car is probably the worst possible vehicle to drive in winter conditions, so I thought it would be a good test vehicle for these tires. So far here in cleveland we have had rain, snow, ice, and slush. These tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

This is my first set of snow tires. I've always used all season tires, but never again. I put them on in November. I was a little worried that they would be rough or loud on dry pavement, but they are nice and quiet. Of course handling isn't as good as normal summer tires on dry pavement, but the compromise is acceptable. Snow is where these tires are worth...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

The tires are truly a very good tire. That was one of the biggest reasons that I got the Blizzak WS70 and the price was extremely affordable. The reviews compared to other tires were not even close to these brand for the winter. And other people and reviews I read I really didn't hear anything bad about them except for that I would be extremely happy with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Phenomenal. Finally had some snow, ice, and several days of subfreezing temps. Have X-Ice 3's on the other car and have used Firestone Winterforce on this. I'd compare as follows--vs. the Winterforce: much better ice and slush grip; slightly better unpacked snow grip; better packed snow grip; much, much lower road noise; slightly softer feeling ride; the...  Read More
