Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

There is not a single street car that cannot be made better by putting these tires on. The hype is real. I use these exclusively for summer tires and have a second set of winter wheels & tires. Even though the winter tires are excellent at their intended job I always can't wait for spring to put these tires back on. The ride does firm up a bit because of the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

This is my 6th set of Continental DWS over several years on different cars. These tires make the Z Roadster quiet and smooth. Minor turn-in response difference compared with stock tires at the limit but not likely noticed on the street. Also being 5 lbs. lighter than stock, the unsprung weight reduction improves feel and response. I never drive in snow and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I purchased OEM 18's and these tires to use as a winter set up in lieu of the 19 summer tires that come standard on the sport package. Considering that these are an all season tire, I am very impressed with their performance across the board.The dry traction is very impressive, allowing me to take off ramps a little quicker than suggested with great...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

What can I say. BUY, BUY, BUY!!!! They have performed great and kept the tread wear!!!!! Worth all of the money spent on these tires. My wife and I feel very confident in these tires. They are the best tire I have ever owned and I have had over ten vehicles to compare against. Nothing more needed to be said.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

These replaced OEM Bridgestone RE050 rft's which were worn out in back after 20K miles. I heavily researched options and we wanted to stay with rft for the security if we had a flat since there's no spare. While we don't intend any winter driving, we wanted strong dry and wet performance, along with a smoother ride and longer treat life. The difference...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

Admittedly this is the first sports car I've owned so I can't compare to other tires. Bought my car two months ago and immediately put these on for the NY winter. Combined with all wheel drive the traction overall is amazing.I went with these performance winter tires vice the regular ones because although there is plenty of snow here, the majority of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture MT KL71

I wanted to write a quick review on these tires,I have drive a Ford Raptor and drive close to 80,000km a year(city/highway/dirt road).I purchased these tires in November 2014, I have driven all winter and I am beyond impressed with traction, ride, and wear. This year in Ontario, Canada we got hammered with snow, not once did I have a problem on highways...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2

These are great tires, great traction, great cornering and responsiveness whether on the road or the track. They make the rather stiff ride of a BMW M Roadster more comfortable, are very quiet on the highway and happily cruise along at 100+ mph with excellent road feel. I occasionally take my car to the big track at Willow Springs or the Mazda Raceway (aka...  Read More

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

10,000 miles on a 2006 Pontiac GTO: These are replacements for the previous Micheline Pilot Super Sport tires that wore out very quickly. The Pilot A/S 3's are simply a better tire than the Pilot Super Sports. They have at least as much dry traction and substantially more wet traction. I find that my 400hp RWD sedan, the A/S 3's are LESS likely to break...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A

The car came with Goodyears, which were ok, but these BF Goodrich Advantage T/A made a big difference. They ride more comfortable and the noise level is down compared to the GY's. I have great traction on both dry and wet roads, even in the snow. Just much more pleasant as an every day driver with these tires. The treadwear is excellent. I don't feel I gave...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

We were disappointed with the performance of this tire compared to the reviews. It is noisy, is horrible on wet surfaces and snow, and did not last as long as expected.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP

This car has the sport suspension upgrade. I love summer tires on a BMW. This is not a sports car, but I love driving it; the steering response is incredible. N/A on the snow performance, as I have snow tires on it three months out of the year. Keep in mind my 7 rating on ride comfort is compared to other run flats and the snow tires. The excellent noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

After 2000 miles with this tire it is still a bit early to draw conclusions but so far I feel really happy with it. They are a vast improvement over the stock summer RFT (Goodyear NCT5, which is NOT a performance summer tire in my book). I was fearing a lack of steering feel based on the reviews I saw but I did not notice any lack of it compared to my...  Read More

Michelin vs Goodyear Tires

Even those who have not done much research into tires recognize the Goodyear and Michelin brands. Being respected brands and household names, they're often sought out by shoppers as a primary choice. Decades of experience designing and manufacturing tires have given both companies a well-deserved reputation.   In order to maintain their good names, major...  Read More

Hawk High Performance Street 5.0 Brake Pads: The Update to an Icon

For many years, the Hawk HPS pad has been one of our best sellers. Known for its low dust levels, quiet operation and increased bite compared to most factory pads, the HPS deserves its praises. Much like we commonly see in the tire industry, even great products like the HPS must be revised from time to time to make sure they're still competitive in a fast...  Read More

Introducing the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

BFGoodrich is attempting to do to the Ultra High Performance All-Season market what they did to the Ultra High Performance Summer market with the g-Force Sport COMP-2. They used the same internal casing in the new g-Force COMP-2 A/S as they use in the Sport COMP-2 to make production volume move faster and keep a proven casing as the base for this tire. The...  Read More

BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 A/S vs. BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S

BFGoodrich was the first American tire manufacturer and is now owned by Michelin. Given Michelin's success in the ultra high performance market, it's no surprise to see that the top BFGoodrich performance street tire, the g-Force Sport COMP-2, has also received outstanding ratings in testing and customer feedback. You can learn more about the...  Read More

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

Our 2008 Saab 93 Aero is the car we vacation travel in. It is a wonderful touring car. I noticed an immediate difference leaving the tire shop driving on the Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3 tires. They felt a little like street legal track tires. The feeling of having the rubber holding the car was evident to me. Clearly, this was not the feel the OEM Continental...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I put a set of these on my Volvo T5R as a replacement for Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3 tires. I had great performance from the Goodyears compared to the Pirelli P Zeros that came on the car. However, the Pilot Super Sports were even better than the Goodyears were. They stick to the road like glue, even in wet, and ride softer and quieter.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

First for my fellow BMW brethren -- I made the switch to a non-run flat after a total of 11 years driven on several different RFTs on two different cars. With a compressor, TPMS-friendly Slime, and a mini-spare, I hope I'm covered. These are quieter, smoother, and take bumps better. Even though I went from a summer performance tire in the RFT, I don't feel...  Read More
