Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

I went through the second set of these tires at 34,000. First set was about the same. They are rated at 55,000 miles and Michelin, after a lot of calls, will give me a discount on new tires. But they are hard to find and I know they won't last so avoid these despite the warranty.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

My 5th set of Blizzaks. Installed just in time for the early November subzero polar weather. I knew the road would be bad when I skated across the driveway and ended up on my -------. Made the executive decision to take the Mercedes with the new Blizzaks and I'm glad I did. Saw no less than five wrecked cars on the interstate as there was no sand or salt...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 01

This tire came standard on my WRX. I had originally planned to switch to an all-season tire right away, but decided to give these a try. Since we have very few winter weather events here, these have worked well all year. There have been a few times that I've taken an alternate vehicles to avoid cold, slippery roads, however, for the sake of safety. I've...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Best tires for summer I've ever had . Looking for more promotions/ discounts to use on all my vehicles.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Bought as All-Season tires since the OEMs were worn and unsafe in the current snow, but I don't want to change out for summer. I needed a tire that will support my car's acceleration, handling, and top speed while providing acceptable snow traction and treadlife value for the dollar. These are THE exact fit for the bill. Dry handling is more predictable near...  Read More

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

This was a great tire - for the 10K+ miles they lasted before the chunking started to occur (http://bit.ly/1asieNs) on the front two. Aside from that minor flaw, these tires worked great on a 3,800lb, '04 Volvo V70R 300HP AWD wagon. Now I realize the weight and handling of the car beats up front tires pretty good, but for spending almost a G on a set, I'd...  Read More

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

Tires were purchased to maintain the handling potential of the car. The tires are not smooth, that said, the suspension of the car contributes to the roughness of the ride. I am perfectly satisfied with the ride and expect such a ride with the car and the superior handling tires. I purchased the tires after they were discounted after a newer model was...  Read More

Great Grip at Great Pricing - Closeout Pricing on Hankook Ventus R-S3

Although Extreme Performance Summer tires have stepped up their game, the old stalwarts of the category still provide great dry grip for your fun car. Like all Extreme Performance Summer tires, the Hankook R-S3 emphasizes dry grip and steering response at the expense of wear, ride compliance and tread noise. It's a great tire for spirited drivers. The R-S3...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have had these tires now for about 2 months and replaced the Dunlop Sport Max RFT that came with the car and were showing too much wear for 15K miles. The truck is for the wife and baby so the Sport Max was a bit of overkill, but what a difference these tires have made. Quiet and smooth and stick like glue. We have been having our spring rains, toad...  Read More

What Does a Bubble in the Sidewall Mean?

Both tire and auto manufacturers recommend frequently checking your tires for signs of irregular wear or any other damage that could cause a dangerous tire failure. While signs of shallow cracking on the sidewall rubber or minor irregular wear are of concern, the presence of a bubble in the tire sidewall is a major safety concern that needs to be addressed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

These tires are way better than OEM factory set in almost every way possible. When new, within the first 1000 miles of purchase, I took a long road trip from AZ to WA and back. These tires performed very well on this 3000 mile road trip, on forest service roads, city roads, highways, interstates and at one point a rock quarry road. Since then, I've put on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Fuzion ZRi

I just had these tires installed, so far they are great. I haven't really had a chance to push the limits on them since, its still around 40 degrees and its a summer tire. The road noise is minimal, i would say the are just as quiet at the OEM Continental tires. They do have very stiff sidewalls which is nice, when it comes to steering input. If these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I initially purchaced 2 tires for the rear after the wife made an unepected trip into the ditch with only a dusting of snow. The discount tires I had replaced the oem ones with were sub-par when it came to snow and wet traction. With just the 2 tires on the rear, the traction and handling of my Trailblazer improved dramtically. Needless to say I was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

My first set of Blizzaks, personally, but not my first experience. My father always puts them on his vehicles when the snow hits.I have to drive a mountain pass (Johnsons Pass; Tooele County, Utah) and in the winter it can be downright treacherous! My co workers in their Civics, and other FWD cars could not make it up the pass to get home, and had to take a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Great performance tire, excellent in the dry and only marginally less good in the wet. Predictable, consistent and controllable character in spirited driving. Recommended and with the Tire Rack discounted price I purchase at these tires were considered great value for money vs the normal retail price (normally expensive)   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Bought front 225/40-18 and back 255/35-18 2 years ago to replace the stock Bridgestone Potenza run flats that came with the car new. I like to take corners aggressively when able and take off briskly (the whole reason I bought the 335i - RWD) and the Conti's don't come close to the Potenzas which would hold a rounded corner at 50 mph while the Contis would...  Read More

Attractive, Lightweight, and Now on Sale: O.Z. Racing Ultraleggera

            While wheel choices and tastes are always subjective and allow a purchaser to create a custom look for their vehicle, certain wheel styles can certainly be more popular than others.  One of my favorite lightweight wheels for the past few years has been the O.Z. Racing Ultraleggera. This wheel is available in a variety of fitments, widths, and bolt...  Read More

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

Just purchased these tires to replace terribly hard and jarring OEM Dunlap run-flats. I have had them only a few days and will post again when I have 5k or 10k miles on them. So far, they have exceeded my expectations. They are quiet and smooth, but don't lose the road feel and responsiveness that I expect from my JCW Mini Copper S. They also really change...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

I could not have been more surprised by these tires! I have only driven about 500 miles so far but I can honestly say I felt the difference immediately driving out of the parking lot after the tires were installed. It is also important to note that I am in the mountains of Western Carolina with my family and have a completely packed van with several weeks of...  Read More
