Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I replaced my PAX tires on my 06 Honda Odyssey van with the Continental True Contact 235/65R/16 tires. I am putting this review out there even though I have only driven 350 miles because I am that impressed with them. My daughter is getting ready to take a long trip in my van so I will have another update after that. To be fair I had run the PAX tires until...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

My 2002 911 Carrera C2 does spirited daily driver duty as well as a few PCA autocross events each year. I have the factory 18 wheel option. These tires replaced the Hankook Ventus K112 that lasted 13,137 in similar use. After the fifth run in yesterday's autocross I noticed a thin white line of tire cord exposed on the Contis rear driver's side tire at the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I recently replaced the stock Good Year Eagle Supercar performance tires. When I changed to the Continentals, I found out that my wheels were stacked backwards! Some idiot had probably rotated the tires without paying attention to the staggered sizes. My front tires were 255/45/20 and rears were 245/45/20! Those tires lasted about 24,000 miles with fairly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

I currently have about 74000 miles on these tires and can probably safely get another 15000 miles out of them. Truly the best value tire I have ever purchased, and they perform extremely well too   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Not cheap; but appears to be an excellent value for the money. Ride is quiet and really smooth. Less noise than I experienced on the LTX M/S and LTX M/S2 that I put on my '03 Expedition. These are on my daughter's'06 Pacifica, which is a much lighter vehicle. It's really too early to judge; but treadwear is not noticeable after 5K miles. Wet and Dry Handling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

I can't even tell you how great these tires perform, I'm an extremely spirited driver and I have yet to find a corner in my city to make these tires squeal. Lateral stability is worlds above anything I've ever run and they drive silky smooth like a grand touring all season. Put these on my low-profile summer rims and expecting the ride to be stiff as a...  Read More

Potenza RE-11 Positioned for Long Run at the Top

There’s no doubt temperatures around the country are at summer time highs. This time of the year is great for cookouts, hanging by the pool…and pushing your car’s traction and handling levels. And no tire is better suited for that in our Extreme Performance Summer category right now than the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11. Currently ranked the top tire in its...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I replaced a set of Conti ExtremeContact DWS with the Conti TrueContact tire. While happy with the ExtremeContact DWS they were a bit noisy and were beat up pretty bad from some very spirited driving during the 40,000 miles I had on them. They were also getting close to requiring replacement anyway. A sidewall bubble developed after hitting a curb so I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

June 2016. I bought my car used, 18 months ago. It had a fairly new set of Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position tires. Dealer said they were a great tires for this car.i soon learned that the tires gave a very hard ride...I think because the tire wouldn't flex as much as my Goodyears that I have bought for all my cars during the last 25+ years. Also, to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I want to provide my initial impression of the Extreme Contact DWS 06 compared to the Pirelli Cinturato P7 A/S Plus that I just returned after 1,000 miles. I replaced the original Good Year Eagle RS-A with the P7 and noticed a significant reduction in steering response, handling, and road holding on the highway. Shame on me for going from a HP tire to a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

My northern Virginia commute is 150 miles round trip per day. All but about 5 miles of that is highway.This is a great tire. This Conti was bought primarily for wet road traction, and it has performed magnificently under those conditions. There has never been a time when grip in the rain was a concern. These tires have run on roads with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

Drive only HPDE Mustang 2011 with a full roll cage. Like to drive in both the rain and dry this is why I bought a extreme performance street tire. This is a fantastic tire for track use, I have driven 14 track days on this same tire with very little wear and it looks like it has a fair amount of life in it yet. Have been to tracks such as Road America,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400

Typical O.E. tire quality and performance. Standard ride comfort, squeals easily during cornering, limited traction in wet and light snow. Compared this tire on O.E. wheel set and Volk CE28n wheel set, identical sets of 225/55r18 Duelers H/L 400. Both tire sets were O.E. on 2015 Subaru Forester XT Touring models with similar manufacturing dates.Currently...  Read More

Both the Bridgestone and the Continental are mounted to Volk CE28n wheels.Noticeable upgrade in every performance category. Any additional cost for moving from the Highway All-Season category to the Ultra High Performance All-Season is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I spent several weeks researching tires. This 9-3 came with ContiSportContacts which were also the OE tire. I wanted to upgrade to an Ultra High Performance All Season from those Grand Touring OE boots.Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 were my first choice due to their reviews/reputation. However, Michelin was the only tire company without a rebate right now....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I changed out the factory run flats on our X6 almost immediately as it came with high performance summer tires (I will never understand that for cars going to snow prone areas). I didn't want to sacrifice performance for winter capability and I didn't want two sets of tires (though I understand the argument). I only had one other experience with Conti's and...  Read More
