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 Dunlop Direzza DZ102

Good tires so far! These replaced a set of Continental Extreme Contact DWS's. The Dunlops are far superior in ride quality, handling, and grip.   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 Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is my 3rd set of tires on my Hyundai Genesis. OEM tires Dunlop 500 were horrible. 2nd set were Kumho and they were better, but these Continentals are by far the best traction, ride and noise level of these 3 tires I have had on this car. My next set will definetly be another set of these Continental pure contact with ECO plusA great tire for this car....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Michelin are always my tire of choice. These ride smoother than my OEM Dunlops. They are smooth, quiet and perform excellent in the snow and ice.   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 Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I've lived in Minnesota and Wisconsin my whole life (and driving for 22 years). These are hands-down the best performing tires in winter conditions that I have experienced. This is the second set of winter-only tires I've owned (other set was Dunlop Wintersport M3 in the same size on the same car). I've also driven this car with the stock Bridgestone Potenza...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

After moving into a new house that has a very steep, paved driveway, I wanted to get snow tires for my BMW and my wife's Subaru (both AWD). I chose the Blizzak's for theSubaru and the Dunlop Wintersports for the BMW. This review is for the Blizzaks so I will speak mostly to these. Bottom line, these tires are awesome. I purchased mainly for snow and ice...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

I drive a heavily modified 342whp/331wtq 03' Subaru Impreza WRX swapped to an Sti and I have a set of these in 235/40/18s mounted to Sparco Assetto Gara wheels. This is my daily driver and also my have a blast on the back roads car. They handle very well and have decent wet traction, but what I love about these tires so far has been how long they last. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

The Dunlop SP 7000's that came with my accord were ok for dry but were mediocre in the rain and Snow. These Kumho's are better in every aspect except road noise, the PA31 can be a little noisy on concrete highways no problems on asphalt.Turn in and stability are great for the price and definitely better than stock unless some other moderately priced...  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 Signature HP

I have never been a huge fan of dunlop tires, I have always found them to be mediocre at best. However I decided to give these a go for my new car which just so happens to be a front wheel drive v8 monster. I questioned my decision to use an all season tire on this car and not dedicated summer and winter tires, but given the expense of running 255's in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

Just purchased these Dunlops to replace the noisy Hankook Optimo H426's on my Crosstour. So far theses tires have been very nice! Nice looking, quiet, they ride well and are much better in the rain. The Hankooks were horrible in the snow even with 4WD. Anxious to see how theses HP's handle winter driving. Not terribly expensive, would consider purchasing...  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 Direzza ZII

I bought the ZII for Auto Crossing and Tracking the car. We drive on the tires to the track which can be a couple of hundred miles each way at times. The tires ride great and have less road noise that the OEM run flats. Traction and handling on the track are excellent. they give good feedback before they start to let go if pushing them too hard in the...  Read More
