Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Bought the DWS Conti's for my C5 Corvette based on reviews and I've also had a set on a BMW M3 that I drove year round. They are very,very quiet and they ride much nicer than the OEM run flats. The softer sidewall results in steering response that is not as sharp as summer tires, but once you turn in, the tires grip well and are predictable. Traction is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

I'm a 67yo retired COP. Saying this I still drive lika a COP, but I am driving a Kia Sportage. Nice running veh., but not a Corvette. So far I am extremely pleased with these tires. They gave me good handling & traction in snow when living in Maryland. Now in Myrtle Beach, SC I longer think of ice & snow. Wet weather traction is great, as is highway &...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

I needed to buy a set of tires for my mostly stock C5 corvette. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on tires for my weekend ride but I still wanted something with great dry handling. These tires have exceeded my expectations!Dry performance is amazing. These tires grip very well when warmed up for spirited driving. If it drops below 60 degrees, they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

Great performance tires on all road conditions but I am a little disappointed. At 23,000(rated for 30,000) miles the tread still has more to go but there is excessive tire noise thumping, often called feathering, caused by flat spots on the outside edge of the tire. Four wheel alignment and balance has always been spot on. The noise is forcing me to go...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I've had several sets of different tires on the rear of my Corvettes. These Michelins are by far the best (also, the most expensive) tire. Dry handling is phenomenal. I did not rate wet traction as I avoid driving my 02 Corvette in the rain (I have four vehicles).   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Awesome tires. They stick like glue to the road. Very little road noise but a tad more than other tires I have owned. However, not nearly as noisy and the Goodyears or Bridgestones I have had in the past. Very responsive and good tire wear. I drive freeways and mountain roads a lot. City driving occasionally.Love these tires and I bought them for my '11...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z II

Purchased these because they were the cheapest thing available and they looked cool. I drive in a very spirited manner over local Mtn Roads. The car also gets some autocross use and A little Drag racing. It is modified with a 3.42 rear from a z06 and a higher stall. The car also has a performance tune and exhaust with plans for future performance upgrades....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Love! Love! Love! these new Michelin Premier AS tires. I replaced Dunlop Sport tires that came on the car when I purchased the vehicle new. These tires are MUCH quieter and MUCH smoother riding than the Dunlops. I blew a tire at 28k miles and had to replace all 4 because my SUV is AWD. I purchased Michelin for my Corvette and love them on that car so thought...  Read More

Bridgestone DriveGuard Run-Flat: Not Just for BMW and MINI

Traditionally, run-flat tires have been used mainly for limited vehicle types as specified by certain manufacturers for Original Equipment use. Prime examples of this is are BMW 3 Series vehicles since the mid-2000s, the new MINI Cooper and all fifth-generation and newer Chevrolet Corvettes. These vehicles once represented a small portion of the market that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax HP

I'm really trying to find a reason not to like this tire. For this size, there are very few choices that aren't Z rated and wear out way too fast. So far (after 2000 miles)these are quiet, smooth riding and stable. I had Generals on a Corvette once and they were great. These are even better. Half the price of other choices...what else can I say?   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I put the Continental Extreme Contact DW's on my 1993 corvette. These were the top-rated tire by TR and your competitors. These new tires replaced the original Goodyear GS-C run flats that came with the car (yes, the car's factory set of tires). I am the 2nd owner of the vette and the car only had 33,000 miles on it. The Goodyears road like bricks with every...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Sport Maxx RT

I got these because my driving style was burning up the stock LRR tires on my Volt. They exceeded my expectations for the price and I think they are perfectly comparable to the Michelin PSS and are considerably cheaper.I can now take corners at higher speeds in the rain than with the stock tires in the dry. I also autocrossed the car when my STU Corvette was...  Read More

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

I have a 2002 Corvette Convertible with OEM Goodyear's and bought my new set of Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus last month. The difference was immediate, the noise level was 100% less and the traction was noticeably better. I was afraid to buy run flats because of the noise from the Goodyear tires but I have been pleasantly surprised. I would buy these again...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Just switched from nitto invos. These tires are better than the invos in all conditions. Way better dry and tremendously more traction in the wet. These tires are confidence inspiring. I would like to note that my turn in response was not as bad as some make it out to be. However I am running a 275 up front and they really like to hang on. The treat is deep,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval RFT

I replaced the stock run flat tires on my c6 corvette. I was surprised how much better the car rode, handled etc. I have the Z51 handling package and these tire exceed the performance from the stock Goodyear's. The ride was much softer, the road noise that usually comes with Run Flat tires was gone. The wear on these tires are very little, for the price you...  Read More
