Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII

I use Dunlop Direzzas as my HPDE track tire. The Direzzas occupy a superb sweet spot between dry and wet traction, control, predictability, wear and cost. The ability of the Direzza to be carefully controlled in tight corners, high speed sweeping turns, on and off-camber turns and in general street use is all I could want. The Direzza provides absolutely...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I bought these to replace the OE Dunlop SP600s on an '11 STI. I was pretty amazed at how big of a difference in performance these provide in comparison. On the road, especially when dry, it is very tough to break traction on these tires. Wet performance is also really good. Stability in hard cornering is great. They definitely get finicky in cold temps, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3

I've used this set on 2 different cars for 3 winters. In the first two with the 335i coupe they were great. Very good in any kind of snow...light, deep,slush, ice. Once I put these tires on my 135is there was a noticeable difference. They have 8/32nds left and they feel like they aren't dealing with the snow well anymore. This could be because of a number of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII

This tire is bordering on R-compound-like performance, but in a streetable summer tire. Dry performance is simply astounding, and even in extremely heavy rain, these tires were more composed than anything I've ever driven in - at freeway speeds where other cars had to slow down due to the standing water, these never hydroplaned once.Treadwear does not appear...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

I ride on these tires all year long. Living in NJ, they see snow, ice and heavy rain and these tires perform very well.   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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 01

Came as standard equipment on my WRX. Tread lasted less than a year and only 22,000 miles. Pretty piss poor for how expensive of a tire it is. Otherwise, performance was fine. Nothing great, but it worked.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have never found driving in the snow so easy until I slapped these ----as on. The amount of traction in anything over an inch of snow is mind boggling. These tires will make you wonder why on earth everybody is going so slow around you. Paired with my Subaru WRX and all wheel drive, I have been unstoppable in every snow storm this winter. Having fun in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport M3

I have the Dunlop Winter Sport M3s on the OEM 18 wheels, in sizes 225/45VR18 in the front and 255/40VR18 in the back. These are truly outstanding snow tires. They are the best - I think - for a car like my E46 M3. We had a snowstorm (around Thanksgiving) and several freezingrainstorms. The tires behaved beautifully. The traction control light never came on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta XS

I am using these tires in sizes 275/35WR18 in the rear and 245/40WR18 in the front, on the BMW OEM 18-inch rims. They are wider than the stock tires and, in fact, they are the widest tires that will fit on the OEM rims. My M3 has several modifications, including Dinan Stage-III suspensions and "CSL" competition brakes.After 3000 miles the tires are not very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

Replaced OEM Dunlop Sport Maxx tires which were badly worn after only 30k miles. Have found these tires to be far superior to the Dunlop's offering better wet and dry traction. They have performed well in the light snow experienced in Saint Louis. The ride is excellent and I have found these tires to be quieter than the OEM tires. Cornering stability is good...  Read More

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

These are great tires. These tires transformed my car compared to when it had the old Dunlops on it, which were pretty worn down by the time I replaced them (Front: 3/32 Rear: 5/32). I put about 12000mi on the car before replacing the tires. I thought the TL was a quiet ride when I first bought the car, but man was I wrong.The P7s add a whole new dimension...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

Made it through 6 seasons on these tires and they did great in all those and still had tread left. They have surprisingly decent dry traction for a winter tire and their snow performance was way better than I expected in this category. I made it through a ski trip through the Viel pass in deep snow whiteout condition with these tires. For any of the in...  Read More

Tires for Your Eighth-Generation Honda Accord

The second car I ever owned was a 1978 burgundy Honda Accord 5-speed. Ever since owning this vehicle, I've been an Accord fan. Honda has done an awesome job in constantly improving the Accord, and the eighth-generation (2008-2012) model is a car that can do just about anything! If you already own one of these Accords, there's no reason to get a new one. With...  Read More

Second Season with Dunlop Winter Maxx Winter Tires

Last year, I purchased Dunlop Winter Maxx tires in the middle of winter for my 2009 Infiniti G37X coupe. These tires replaced the Graspic DS-2 and performed very well in their first season of use. But, how would they perform in season two?  So far, this winter season has provided me with a variety of conditions in which to further evaluate these tires....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Sport Maxx RT

These tires came OEM on my Subaru. While they have offered great stability at high speeds in straight and on the curves as well as provided great traction on both dry and wet conditions I feel that they gave off too much road noise into the cabin.I confirmed this when I switched to my winter tires right before the Thanksgiving weekend. They were actually...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek AT20

These came with my 2012 FJ and after reading the reviews I was going to immediately upgrade, but after 5K miles decided to just keep them. I live in California and commute between SF and SJ, and also drive to see my kids in Utah and Colorado, where I drive long distances on 80 and 70 also off road in Moab a little. I am surprised at all the negative reviews...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3

This is my second set. I had these tires on my volvo xc70 and loved them. You get good winter and snow traction without giving up much on dry or wet roads. I have had Dunlop performance winter tires, Goodyear ultra winter, Blizzak, and Perelli Scorpion. The Primacy Alpin were the best. Never mushy feeling on dry roads or corners like standard winter tires....  Read More
