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.

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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These continental Extreme contacts have about 37,800 miles on them with anywhere between 31 to 33 lbs of air in tires, rotate every 6k miles and hoping to get another 6k miles out of them. The word S is worn off the center of (DWS) indicator and they have become sleek on moderate take off from a stop on wet roads.These Contis have the nature of hard ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

With about 2,000 miles on these now I am quite pleased with the performance. Turn in and dry grip are excellent as is grip on wet pavement. Hydroplane resistance is perfectly acceptable in all but the heaviest downpours. Wear is negligible. These are definitely a significant upgrade over the 10 year old OEM Continental Contisport Contacts they replaced -...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Think 8/10th - The tires were purchased to replace OEM Conti-s on my BMW 335i. The Conti-s lasted 20K miles, a big improvement over the OEM Conti-s I had on my 2008 911 which lasted less than 12,000 miles. The DriveGuards are a compromise in favor of value - $900 a set compared with the Bridgestone S001s that the BMW dealership recommends, which are $1600+ a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport Signature (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I just ordered by second set of these tires for my Cayenne. All other tires for my high performance SUV cost at least double the cost of these and many of them perform much worse. I have almost 150k miles on my Cayenne. I have purchased Porsche NXX OEM tires, Pirelli, Michelin, and Continentals during the time I have owned this SUV. I drive a 911 during the...  Read More
