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 Sumitomo HTR Z II

What a bargain for a C5 Corvette to get away from those $1200-1400 sets of run flats. Vette has individual TPMS pressures so you know which tire is low. Just like my RX8 with no spare I included a repair kit and slime as a carry along. W rated tires that deliver. I don't race this car (yet)but have been totally amazed with the level of grip available in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

I purchased these tires on October 4, for a 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan at the store in South Bend,IN. We have had very good experience with Firestone tires on our family farm, although I knew that Firestone had issues in the past with passenger car tires. These tires are much quieter than the Hankook tires they replaced; the handling leaving Tire Rack in South...  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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

Well, I own a CTS-V Coupe (Daily Driver and Track Car) that originally came with Michelin PS2's, which are great tires (OE). I have had my V on the local track on both sets of tires and the Bridgestones are fantastic in their own right, not to mention the price. I have run both tires up to 179 mph without any stability, pressure or temp issues. What I really...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

I bought these to upgrade to larger rims to give me more grip and stability. My Camaro is now equipped with a 2002 spec Corvette Z06 LS6 motor and I needed more grip. The car's handling is responsive like it was riding on rails and taking the twistys is done with confidence. I have only put a small amount of mileage on them so far, and highway cruising is...  Read More

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

i'm a car nut, my other 2 cars are a corvette ls3 and a 67 ss chevelle and i'm very fussy when it comes to my cars. my previous replacement tires were michelin took 3 tries to balance and never got it right, they were noisy. these tires balanced up first try with very little weights added, road noise was reduced a lot and the ride improved, feels better then...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The OEM GYs were gone at 10K miles and were treacherous to drive in the rain. As wide as they are, there is no hydroplaning with the Michelins and at the current wear rate I expect to get 30K miles from them. Bad compared to my Equinox that will go at least twice that on the OEM Michelins, but great for a super high performance summer tire on a Corvette....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A

These tires are on a corvette i drive ocassionally. the only complaint is the white lettering on the tires has turned brown and wont wash or sand off. the tires handle and wear good for a 15 tire, even though its getting hard to find them. I may have to flip the tires over to blackwall even though its a hassle to do that....   Read More

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

92,000 on my 2003 corvette, 78,000 on Michlen AR zp tires. 40,000 on the first set and the second set are still on the car. GREAT TIRE   Read More

Longest-Wearing Z-Rated Performance Tires

What can drivers of sports cars and high performance vehicles with low profile, Z-rated Ultra High Performance All-Season tires do if they want to have longer wearing tires? In the past, the best a driver could hope for, in regards to treadwear, was an option that lasted approximately 20,000 miles. This was the case for so long that it has becomeĀ a common...  Read More

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

These are performance run flat extremely high quality sport tires. They are on a 350HP sport car and although it is driven with care and safety in normal city and country traffic and on hard paved roads, these tires just don't wear like fifty thousand mile tires do on large less sportily driven slower family sedans. That being said, I wouldn't have it any...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

This is the second time I have purchased these tires for one of my Corvettes. I switched from the OEM Supercar tires and the ride comfort is now fantastic. It was like switching from heavy stiff work boots to soft cushioned sneakers. These are much quieter than the run flats. I bought an emergency tire repair kit for piece of mind. These tire have an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2

Goodyear will score well with the Eagle F1 Asymmetrical 2 offering. I wanted an non-run flat for our 09 Corvette and this new Goodyear seemed to be the pick of the litter. With a 45k mi. tread wear warranty it fit our expectation for performance in a daily driver that would see all types of driving conditions. Our most recent outing included a 700 mile round...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle GT (V-Speed Rated)

I replaced a set of Riken Raptors with the Goodyears. Much less noise, much better ride, better MPG and improved handling. I drive both mountain twisties and long freeway runs, and in both situations these are superior tires. Good grip under hard corniering and braking. I haven't had them long enough to report on tire wear, as the Z3 is a third car even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

These Hankook Ventus K110 tires are great. In comparison to the ROCK HARD Goodyears that came on my Corvette when new, there is no comparison as the Hankooks are far superior.   Read More
