Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 M

Don't know why everyone else is complaining about tread wear. Came OEM, 18,500 miles of somewhat aggressive driving and still 8/32's on all 4 tires. Snow grip is awesome (compared to the Michelin Pilot MXM4s on my previous car, 2010 Ford Fusion.) Only flaws are the rough ride and road noise but it doesn't bother me. After all, if you want a quiet luxury car,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Sport Maxx Race

I tried these Sport Maxx Race tires on my Boxster Spyder. I drive to weekend DE events (white run group). I was very satisfied with how well these tires perform. I have driven on many street tires (on the track) and these tires may be the best I have ever used. I'll be buying another set for the next event.   Read More

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

Are you kidding me? These are snow tires? Amazing!! They are much more quiet than the OEM high performance all seasons that came on my car. They grip better in the wet and the dry, they have firmer cornering behavior and oh yea, they are snow tires! Which means great cold weather breaking power too. Stop reading and just buy them already... I will never put...  Read More

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

This tire combined with AWD does very well on my BMW 330Xi during the Northeast winter. I am very impressed with the dry, wet, and snow traction for a high performance snow tire. I really don't think any all-season tire can match this level of traction in both dry AND snow conditions. Noise and wear so far have been very good. No complaints. Honestly, this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I was very hesitant to change from summer tires to all season tires. I previously, has Conti Sport 2 on my car and found it the best all around tire for it. I tried everything including Michelin with good traction and poor grip to Dunlop with outstanding grip and worrisome traction. Wear on the Dunlop was very quick, the sacrifice for grip; the Michelin...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 2050

I have these on my Mazdaspeed3. Originally when I purchased the car I had Kuhmo Ecsta SPT summer tires, which were not so good. When I was looking to buy a new set of tires, I had the option to buy a whole new set of 2013 Speed3 rims and OE Dunlop tires so I jumped at the opportunity.These are vastly superior to the Kuhmo's. I don't know why there are so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I replaced my OE Potenzas with these F1 all seasons. I got tired of having to swap wheels every winter and put on the Dunlop Winter Sports, so I'm trying all season tires. I put them on in April, so I haven't driven in snow yet, but on dry pavement and rain, the Eagle F1s perform as well as the stock Bridgestones. Cornering is awesome. The F1s handle the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I went from Dunlop Sport Maxx tires to these and could not be more pleased. These tires have better handling, better tread wear, better mileage, and lower noise attributes as compared to the Dunlop tires (and I basically liked the Dunlops). Highly recommended.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

I purchased these tires to replace the stock Dunlop sp2050 summer tires on my Mazdaspeed3. The michelins not only have higher overall grip but ride more smoothly and quietly. They still look phenomenal after 10k miles, with the lowest tire still measuring over 8/32nds with lots of spirited driving. I turn off traction control and spin them at least weekly.I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 01

This tire came stock with my WRX. I've put many highway miles on this tire, they seem to last quite a while as a DD tire. I've noticed that even in cold (dry) conditions the tire has exceptionally more traction than I expected it would. I've ran 3 autocross events with it this year and it does an alright job (5th in class of 12), but it could be better. It...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Fuzion UHP Sport A/S

I purchased this tire over a year ago to replace some 970AS Pole Positions. (worst tire in snow ever made even light snow). I am a machinist by trade and have made substantial modifications on the mostly stock EVO (except intake, exhaust, cam and programming). Even though I could burn these tires off in a matter of minutes they have performed well for the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I replaced the more expensive stock Dunlop's and increased the performance. For the price... excellent tires. Road noise very low. Traction on wet/dry is very good. Handling and cornering is tight. And the tires perform well at high speeds and provide a comfortable feeling of gripping the road securely. No regrets on the purchase.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

What a significant improvement over ANY all season tires on ice, light and heavy snow!My 3 month old Dunlop SP sport 5000 tires were rated with the best snow and ice traction among all other all season tires in the latest consumers report survey, but the car can't even stop without sliding out of control when I reach intersections on slight icy conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I drive a Mazdaspeed3 on H&R coilovers and an aftermarket rear swaybar to lessen understeer. Treadwear is average for a performance tire. I'm on track to hit the wear bars at 15k. Dry traction is great and the sidewalls are stiff enough that you can throw the car into a turn hard and not roll the sidewalls. Lane changes are a just a flick of the steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Living in the high sierras, a dedicated winter tire is a must. Normal snowfall is 400 per year although the last two winters have been unfortunately mild.Driving a Q5 S-Line Prestige with a 255/45/20 size, a real winter tire is needed. Previous tires for the Q5 included the Bridgestone LM-60 and the Conti Extreme Contact DWS. The Conti was noisy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

Early review at 2000 miles. Replaced OEM Summer Tread Dunlop A01 with this Michelin all season tread. The Michelin is very quiet and smooth riding. It handles just as well as the summer Dunlops. Haven't used them in light snow yet. Will see how they hold up in regards to tread wear and noise after they get miles on them - this is where the Dunlops...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical

I don't understand the other reviews I've read regarding this tire. I have 57,000 miles on my 2014 Mazda 6. I had some hydroplaning issues when the interstate was flooding but otherwise, considering the mileage I have on these tires, I've been very satisfied. Not sure if the lack of traction in the 9 month long winters here in Minnesota is due to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek AT20

I was actually doing some research on other tires based on the looks rather than on the performance when I came to realize how fortunate I was to have had those Dunlops. They came with my 2012 FJ and everyone who had the chance to drive since have commented on the smoothness of the ride. This is partly due to the suspension system but also the tires as I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical

I've got 28,000 miles on these tires and the tread depth is down to 2/32 so I will be replacing them immediately. I am very disappointed that when you buy a new car they usually put cheap tires on them. Overall everything on these tires was pretty good except the tread wear. I would have expected to get more than 28,000 miles but I guess I can't complain too...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Spec

STICK BEATS WIDTH! I bought these to replace the Potenza RE760 Sports that were on the car when I got the it used. I had to drop down 10 points in width on the front and 20 points on the back, because nobody makes extreme summer tires in the original spec width for my car's original rims.The difference in width on the rear is visually noticeable. However,...  Read More
