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 Dunlop Signature CS

Best tire I've driven over 40 years. Far, FAR better than the OEM Bridgestone. Much quieter, smoother, more stable, and even slightly better mileage. They are in fantastic condition after 24K miles. Very highly recommend.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature II (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I doubted the reviews,but I took a chance based on price. They haven't disappointed me though. I drive mostly on high speed toll roads and rural highways and these have a good ride that's relatively quiet. I've had no issues in rain to this point and I'd really have to stretch it to find a real complaint. I haven't had them in snow, but I'll put the snows on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

in snowstorm and black ice conditions the dunlop winter maxx 17 in tires have had a lot of grip, i have driven over some black ice with these tires and had very small slides with the tires quickly straightening the car out. so far the tire have out performed any expectations i had for them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

During this summer, I bought a set of winter rims and tires through Tire Rack for my 2013 Acura TL SH-AWD. I live in MN and All season tires don't cut it. Furthermore using winter rims really keep your stock rims sharp far longer (sand & salt issues).So in the past I have purchased multiple sets of Blizzaks which have been excellent in all winter conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I am not new to Michelin tires, so this was the obvious choice when I was shopping for winter tires. Having said that, I considered Blizzaks and Continentals before my purchase, but the Tire Rack and Consumer Reports reviews for the X-Ice made my decision much easier. Two seasons on these tires, and negligible wear thus far. They handle well for a winter...  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 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
