Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Sport Maxx RT

Did not get a chance to drive on these much before switching to winter tires, which are a MUST in the climate where I live. I actually liked these tires a lot and were a good choice of size and composition for the car. There will probably be other contenders when replacement is necessary, but I will run these until that time comes.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Loved these tires. Second time i have them on 2 different cars. I would get them again, but I have to return my lease with RF tires. The ride and handling are both great, the noise is very controlled, until the end, when all tires get very loud. And they lasted 50% longer than the Dunlop RF's that the car came with.   Read More

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

Bought a new set for my car, they perform great in snow/ice. However two of the tires blew out on a pothole within one week of purchase. Replaced both tires. Within two weeks, another tire had to be replaced because of a small puncture by a tiny pebble in the side wall. So I've purchased seven of these tires within four weeks. The pothole I understand, but...  Read More

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

The M4 and my previous sets of M3's on two Subies are the best tire I've owned, period. One set was wearing down a bit more than I like in late spring, so I decided to take them into summer, couldn't wear them out. Great confidence on dry roads, off road mud, etc. I've been on glare ice where the ABS pumped a whole lot more than I would have liked trying to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

1. Bought these for HPDE events and weekend driving. The car is a heavily modified '07 Mustang GT so handling and power is on par with a Boss 302. 2. Replaced a set of RE-11s that served well on HPDE days over the winter. The car also ran Hankook RS-3 v2 and Dunlop Star Spec I before in similar weather this past weekend (50F87F).3. On a tight fast course...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO

Yes, I had over 70,000 mixed paved /unpaved travels. Not one flat. Noisier than OE Goodyear Wranglers & Dunlops, but not objectionable. These tires are the only brand I've had on several SUV's over the years that I didn't have a flat with. The only reason I replaced them (with another set of BFG AT's) was the weather checking. Still had another 10k in them.Wh...  Read More

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 Dunlop Direzza DZ102

Replaced the OEM Continetal Procontacts with these. I live in FL where an Allseason tire makes no sense. The handling, braking, and everything is so much better then even the best allseason tire. On a few corners where the car would whine and dance about doing 35-40mph in dry conditions, can now be taken at 50-55mph with no noise or fuss. Very confidence...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Tires perform much better than the O.E. Dunlops. All-wheel drive definitely helps the winter weather driving experience. Would definitely buy these again.   Read More

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

I used 3 sets of these and/or their grandfather (Dunlop Sport M2) over the last 14 years using them only during the winter. I'm now going to buy a new set of the next winter. I really like them for Seattle driving where water and wet snow is what I mostly drive on winter around town and in the mountains. They are true to their advertising: better tire than...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

After 2000 miles with this tire it is still a bit early to draw conclusions but so far I feel really happy with it. They are a vast improvement over the stock summer RFT (Goodyear NCT5, which is NOT a performance summer tire in my book). I was fearing a lack of steering feel based on the reviews I saw but I did not notice any lack of it compared to my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

The best summer tires I ever had. My Mazda come from the factory with Dunlop Sport which I could not wait to replace. Bridgestone tires makes Mazda even more fun to drive. I drive about 12000 miles every summer in Michigan and the tires will last for one season, then in the winter I'm using Bridgestone blizzak, by the way those are other awesome tires. Never...  Read More

BFGoodrich is introducing the g-Force Rival S, an autocross optimized version of the Rival. Though this tire is not yet widely available, it looks like a promising addition to the Extreme...  Read More

Sumitomo's Affordable Performance All-Season Tire Just Got Better

Sumitomo traces its roots back to its relationship with Dunlop that started in 1909 and has been engineering and producing world-class tires now for decades. In the late 1990s, Sumitomo and Goodyear formed a joint venture in which the two manufacturers would produce tires for each other. In a way, you can think of Sumitomo as the "Goodyear of Japan."  For...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Love! Love! Love! these new Michelin Premier AS tires. I replaced Dunlop Sport tires that came on the car when I purchased the vehicle new. These tires are MUCH quieter and MUCH smoother riding than the Dunlops. I blew a tire at 28k miles and had to replace all 4 because my SUV is AWD. I purchased Michelin for my Corvette and love them on that car so thought...  Read More
