Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I'm a spirited driver and previously came out of the Michelin Pilot Super Sports, which was a fantastic performing tire in itself, but the most noticeable change with the new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S is an improvement in the ride quality and harshness from the tire when hitting impacts in the road and the dry handling responsiveness and cornering stability....  Read More

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

This Volvo S90 shipped with summer Pirelli P Zero tires on 20 wheels, but we needed all season tires and there aren't many choices in this size. We knew the 20 wheels and summer tires would be a problem when we bought the car. We tried to find a 19 option, but that didn't work and instead we arranged for Volvo to install Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+ tires,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

With only a few thousand highway and city miles on these tires, i don't have a huge long term opinion on these tires. From what I've experienced so far, I'm not all that wowed. The tires don't have many drawbacks, if any, but surely don't exude any flavorful characteristics either.With regards to comfort, these tires are fairly quiet in almost...  Read More

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

Installed on a 2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i AWD. In upstate NY/ Northern NY we have true all season weather, and I think these tires handle it very well, especially for the price! Had no balancing issues after the first mount and balance. The only thing I have slightly noticed is when it's cold outside (sub-freezing to freezing temps) the tire gets a slight flat...  Read More

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

The best tires I've purchased as far back as I can remember! I purchased these tires based on the high reviews I saw on this website and they seem to be accurate because I noticed incredibly improved performance the moment I drove on them. I drive hard and fast and these tend to squeal less on hard acceleration compared to previous tires I've used. In the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus Z214

Having recently graduated to Hoosier R7s from R-Comps (Toyo R888s) on my E36 BMW M3 at the track (and LOVE them) I wanted to up the ante on my hot rod Porsche as well. Not able to fit Hoosiers to my current car set up I looked for something similar which would fit the car and these were the only candidates. The Hankooks are in no way directly comparable to...  Read More

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

Just put a set these on my Infiniti G-37xS last week. Tire Rack shipped them to my Infiniti dealer who did the install. They balanced up beautifully without much weight. Just have about 250 miles on them so far and just tried them in the snow tonight. Pleasantly surprised at how well they did, considering these are not snows, but all-seasons. In terms of wet...  Read More

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

I drive for UBER and after researching tires and shopping around I chose this tire based on and existing comparing test available from TireRack. I put on about 3000 miles a month on these tires (27,000 total since I bought them in March) but I service the car every 5K miles and make sure tires are rotated. Its an excellent tire, quiet, handles well,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I've done a lot of work on my car - engine now produces 380 hp, performance suspension, Brembo brakes, sport wheels, so I needed high performance tires to go with it. At the same time, I didn't want tires that would wear too fast, so ultra performance and race tires were out. The Pilot Sports seem to fit the bill.Cornering is excellent and very easily...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Winter Slalom KSI

I took a chance on these as I have always purchased Blizzaks for winter. These are on par with those as far as winter performance at a lower price point. Where I've really noticed the difference though, is in the tread wear. If properly rotated, these tread blocks seem to have lasted much longer than the Blizzaks for comparable driving. I wouldn't hesitate...  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

Is the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 the Best All-Season or All-Terrain Tire for Snow Traction?

If you've experienced driving through a tough winter season on a top-tier winter tire like the Bridgestone Blizzak DMV-2, you'd agree that a set of dedicated winter tires offer the best traction in snow and on ice. If you are one who doesn't agree with this statement, take a look at "Do Winter/Snow Tires Really Make a Difference?" Winter tires should be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I recently had these tires installed on my 300. As compared to OEM, these have lot less road noise and relatively softer ride. Yesterday we had thunderstorm in Detroit and that was the time i was impressed with their performance. It was pouring and everyone on the road was driving very cautiously (read slowly) and i was just flying, i felt as if the road was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I have roughly 5,000 miles on these tires over the course of 5 months, on all road types (excluding gravel). I love them.I drive extremely aggressively and they are the best tires I've put on my Camaro to date, far better than the factory Pirelli's. More grip both lateral and in a straight line, much better in wet/cold conditions, tough and resistant to road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I bought those tires mostly on the basis of other reviews. I didn't want to buy a dedicated snow tire/wheel set for my M5 and wanted something to work in snow and summer.Bottom line, this tire's traction in snow is very decent... On ice, it's not that good as I expected. The ride is soft and cornering isn't that great but again this is an all season tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I waited several months to post this review because I wanted to see how these tires handled my New England winter. I was looking for that utopia of both great summer and winter performance - at speed - and would last a while. I was replacing some very expensive Michelin's which were 90% of the way to that goal - but wore out quickly (which I accept for what...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TerrainContact A/T

2k update from Prescott..have had tires for 1 month now and have about 2k miles on tires. About a 50 city/45 highway/5 off road split. Tires continue to perform well. I can comment on highway performance now after a couple of ski trips and a trip to Las Vegas. I would say the tires are a bit louder than the OEM tires but not annoyingly so. It is almost like...  Read More
