Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I mean this tire speaks for itself, my car came with Dunlop run-flats which are complete garbage so having had a spare winter wheel/tire set up for the car, I opted to install summer tires for my OEM Rays Eng. performance package wheels. The car feels like a completely different animal, the steering response is great (though I have electronic steering) but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical

New car OE on 2017 Mazda6 Touring. I see there is a specific tread design for the Mazda6 according to TR. My first impression of the Mazda6--I've been car shopping for many months, have driven numerous others including Optima, Sonata, Elantra, Mazda3, etc., was, this Mazda6 is CONNECTED! Is it the tires or the tire size? The setup? I can't say.I can say that...  Read More

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

Just put a set these on my Infiniti G-37xS last week. Tire Rack shipped them to my Infiniti dealer who did the install. They balanced up beautifully without much weight. Just have about 250 miles on them so far and just tried them in the snow tonight. Pleasantly surprised at how well they did, considering these are not snows, but all-seasons. In terms of wet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Snowcontrol Serie 3

Obviously not many miles yet. Today, I was out and about while a winter storm was beginning. It was cold out, so the snow was light and fluffy, not wet snow. With maybe an inch or two of snow, compacted in some areas, traction from a standing start was OK. Even with throttle modulation, there was some wheel slip invoking the stability/traction control. Even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

I put the first set of these on my trustee Nissan Maxima which I bought new 17 years ago. It has a few minor suspension add on's and I run a slightly lower profile tire than stock (225 45 17's). Our standard drive is from hwy 1 in Stinson Beach, CA over Panoramic Hwy. to civilization. A beautiful twisty mountain road. My Nissan has seen everything from very...  Read More

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

I drive my car pretty hard through the canyons but also cruise through the city and usually on the weekends I take it to the local autox events. These tires are AMAZING, replaced my stock dunlops and these are night and day. Grip is excellent in the dry or in the wet it doesn't matter what you throw at them. Dry weather they just grip and go amazing Road and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I live near Buffalo NY. We get a few snow storms each year, and the roads get extremely slippery and icy. Its only a few days each year, but you don't want to get in to an accident on one of those days.My wife bought a set of these True Contact tires a year and a half ago and as we approach the end of the second winter with them I am absolutely amazed at how...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

These replaced OE Dunlop SP Sport Maxx A1-A A/S tires. So far, the Pirellis aren't as good to drive. On the plus side, they are a little smoother and better at dealing with road imperfections, and seem to be more solid in the rain. On the other hand, steering response is on the floppy side (there's a lot of dead space before anything happens), overall grip...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

These Dunlops are excellent, after reading a few reviews, I was a bit hesitant in getting them, but an incident on the highway quickly changed my mind. I'm glad I went with my gut and got these. They are way quieter than the OEM Michellins that came with the car. With an AWD vehicle like the MDX these tires take to cornering real well, I'm no longer fighting...  Read More

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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

This is my second set of these tires on 2 different cars. The first was an AWD Volvo wagon and they were fantastic in all weather. This is my second set this time on a nearly new Mazda 6. The Mazda 6 comes with hard riding noisy Dunlop tires. At 18000 miles I hit some road debris and damaged 2 beyond repair. I insist on 4 matching tires so my choices were to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Given the reviews here, I was expecting a major improvement on the stock Dunlop tires for my Mazda. I wasn't disappointed. These should definitely be broken in before you consider doing a lot of hard driving. The tread blocks are pretty deep, so it will feel a little squirmy for a while.These BFGs have very strong dry grip. Sometimes there's a little initial...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

We just got back from a 2300 mile trip from Nevada to Arizona and into California. This tire brought back smooth riding into the Durango. My previous tire was Dunlop AT20's which left a lot to be desired. This tire has encountered heavy rainfall, heavy snowfall, black ice, ice under fresh powder snow and near 0 degree temperatures. Please note this is not a...  Read More

(GTI with Performance Pkg-6sp manual) Initial Review 2500mi Tires purchased to replace OEM All Season Hankook H Rated VENTUS S1 NOBLE2. (Planning to purchase Goodyear PSS summer tires in the spring.)This has been a challenging winter in Chicago area with significant snow, ice and very low temperatures. The Pirelli Scotto3 (non-run flat) have performed with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

We are into our third winter with Michelin's on our relatively low mileage Audi S4. The tires have been fine--better than previously owned Dunlops and Continentals (for other cars). My only concern with the Michelins is traction in curves. I've noticed that they are a bit slippery in a snow covered, off- camber turn that we go through frequently. On the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

With only 13,000 miles on my original set of Dunlop's ( factory) and the need to replace already, I decided to put my money on another brand that I trusted from past experience. While the Dunlop's may have looked a bit sportier, (Michelin's look a bit more utilitarian) the difference in ride and handling is unsurpassed. I feel like I have a whole new car for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Quiet, comfortable, and capable. My research led me to believe these are best-in-class, and my experience so far supports that conclusion. Sure enough, the tires are a perfect match for the character of the G37xS and my driving style. Excellent grip in both the wet and dry and inspires confidence in corners. I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Definitely great overall value within competitive set of premium all weather SUV tires. Good handling, quiet and smooth ride. I usually get about 45K per set of tires on my Q5. So far these are superior to OE Goodyear Eagles, Dunlops and last set of Michelins. Just rotated at 5K. Looking forward to another 45K on this vehicle with 140K miles on it   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D

I put these on my new 2016 Impreza (16x7 Moda rims) and so far they have been excellent in the couple of storms we've had in Denver. I've driven them out in the Summit county mountains over completely snow covered passes and they performed perfectly without hesitation. I was mainly concerned with noise and comfort and these perform as well if not better in...  Read More
