Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP31 A/S

While many of these reviews are negative, this one is my own experiences with this tire and it has not been an overall negative one. I purchased my 2011 Honda Insight EX used at a year old and since that time, I have put just about 30,000 miles on the tires now in th two years I have own it. Living in New England, I experience every realm of weather one can...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Car came with Dunlop tires. I cannot believe Lexus put those tires on this car. I got rid of them at 25K. I have a 2000 LX 470 and have always been happy with the LTX M/S. These tires are even better. There is nothing bad about this tire. Bought at Tire Rack. Had dealer mount 'em. Better everything: handling, ride, traction and even gas mileage. I hunt, so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

I love this tire, this is my second set of these. I had them on my 1997 Nissan Truck and knew they would be perfect on our 2007 Pathfinder. The dealer installed the Dunlop AT20 on to the vehicle before we purchased it. After a couple of months they were promptly removed and replaced with the Bridgestones.I feel sorry for the poor souls that bought those...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 7000 A/S

New car 2500 mile and these tires flat spot. The dealer is great and fixing the problem by giving me new tires a different brand. The car starts off each day with the bump bump for a mile or so when the tire warms up they seem to perform better. just not a good tire and very aggravating.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Integrity

My new Honda Pilot SUV came equipped with Goodyear Integrity tires. When it came to time to replace the tires, I decided to replace them with the same exact tire since I was happy with their pass performance. After getting the new Integrity's put on, I noticed a road noise that I never heard before. I gave the tires a week, but the road noise did not go...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek Touring A/S

I got my RX350 for 2 months and the cars originally came with Michelin Latitude Tour HP. However, Michelins are just too stiff and whenever the car hits the bump, it is like a concrete tire hitting a solid bump and shock just sent straight to my neck.Dealer agreed to swap Dunlops from one of their 2013 RX loaner to mine. Ride comfort difference is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

We placed these tires on our car one day after picking it up at the dealer. We knew that the RFT (Dunlop SportMax) would be Very stiff and would be dangerous in winter, so we went with the Conti DWS. Excellent tire! Understand that it is not going to handle like the summer only performance tire... But it is easily 80% of the way there. Steering isn't the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature CS

Less than 50 miles, too soon to provide any meaningful rating so will update as we accumulate mileage. But this is to provide a history, and no better place to start than at beginning. About 12k mi/year, combined DC Metro beltway & city. My wife & toddler's car.Day after hurricane Sandy...less than thrilled with wet traction on the OEM Bridgestone Duelers...  Read More

Have you been waiting for a new Accord? Well it's time to visit your Honda dealer because the new 2013 Honda Accord is in town.  Honda's done a great job with both the Accord Coupeand Sedan.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec

These are the 2nd set of summer tires for my daily driver. They are stickier and marginally quieter than the original Dunlop SP600s. These are great on the dry. On the track, they're almost as sticky as R-compound tires. They're a bit noisy, but not as bad as the Dunlop 600s, which sound like 4 bad wheel bearings (I actually took my car into the dealer just...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

Replaced the OME Dunlops with 33k on them and what a difference! Read reviews from various sights and blogs and choose this brand. Initial drive home from the dealer remimded me of the 1st time I drove it home brand new. Comfort and noise level amazing, held up well to cornering offramps and on center steering very responsive. Tire profile looks good! Tire...  Read More

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

This is my second set on my second Jag Convertible. I didn't care for the OEM Dunlop Sport Maxx's as they have absolutely no winter traction. So I have my dealer swap them off for these at delivery. With My Pilot A/S's, I feel like I'm in a little 4X4 come winter, though this last winter was only fair as the very few snows we had were wet snows and the tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Graspic DS-3

I bought my Dodge just before Christmas, and the dealer had installed these tires on it new prior to my purchase. I didn't ask for them, and had I chosen new tires for the car, they'd have been an all-season tread instead of dedicated winter tires (as now I have to buy yet another set of tires and probably wheels for the other 3 season). Even though this is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta ASX

This tire shouldn't be considered a All Season Tire It's unfortunate that the Audi dealer I purchased the car (Sept'07) from installed these 235/45/17. There horrible in any amount of snow! Thus in order too use the Audi I was forced too purchase a complete new set of winter tires (Dunlop Winter Sport 3D's) 215/55/16 also a new set of 16 wheels. The Dunlops...  Read More

How to Tell if You Have Run-Flat Tires

Many new cars are equipped with run-flat tires. These tires give the ability to keep driving on a tire that has lost air. Typically, self-supporting tires maintain vehicle mobility for 50 miles at speeds up to 55 mph. The exact ratings will vary by tire and vehicle.  Car dealers often fail to mention to customers that their tires are run-flats or may...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx DSST RunOnFlat

Came with my X5. Very disappointed that the tires started getting very noisy at 14k miles. Went to the dealer who told me they only last 15-20 k miles and showed my tires at/ near wear bars. New tires once per year at $500 each!!!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental 4x4 Contact

These tires were original equipment on my 2010 Touareg TDI. Drove the car home from the dealer in a big MN winter storm and raved about the new SUV being the most stable and confidence inspiring vehicle I’ve ever driven in snow. Head and shoulders above the Subaru Outback and Honda Pilot, which were both great. Made the RWD BMW 530i I traded in seem like a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422

These tires, in size 205 50 R16, replaced the stock 185 55 R16 OEM Bridgestone Turanza EL470 supplied with 2009 Honda Fit (Sport trim level).The two biggest improvements are in ride comfort and fuel economy. Whether it's the tire or just the larger footprint and changed sidewall geometry (the 205 is about a half inch wider on each side of the stock 6 Sport...  Read More

New Tires for Your NSX

Supercars are great but supercars that you can drive every day are even more special. A shortlist of everyday supercars would consist of the Acura NSX, the C5, C6 Z06 and the 911 GT3. All great cars, but the NSX is more of a rare bird since the Z06 and GT3 share styling cues with their stablemates. The NSX's wheel sizes are relatively small compared...  Read More
