Are All Dunlop Direzza Tires Created Equal?

The Dunlop Direzza family of tires is focused on performance and handling. Models have included the Direzza Z1, Direzza ZII, Direzza DZ101 and Direzza DZ102. All of these featured summer compounds and directional tread patterns. Despite these similarities, there are some very distinct differences between them. There are two primary branches of the Direzza...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus R-S3

This tire is amazing...I have had two sets now on my Mazda Miata and have been extremely pleased with their performance. For daily driving, they are great. For autocross, they are just amazing! The dry grip is the best I have experienced in a street tire, and the wet grip to me is still pretty good. Wear has been very good for this type of tire, particularly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar I/T G072

I have driven in terrible winter conditions all across Canada (for 20 plus years) and these tires are by far the best I have ever owned (I am talking SUV driving). From heavy wet snow to hard packed snow in -30 windy conditions, to black ice, to ice....these tires have never let me down. They have been so good, I have rarely had to resort to flipping the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

When I went looking for a set of tires, my first-ever snowy winter was fast approaching me. I had spent my entire life up until that point living in the hot deserts of southern California, but was attending college in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. I had no idea how to drive in snow, and I couldn't have two sets of tires - one summer and one winter - because I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have had these tires for 34,000 miles on my 2006 Audi A4 Quattro and tomorrow I will be taking my Audi to the local Just Tires store to have another set of the exact same tires put on my car. That is how satisfied I was with it. The tires felt great when cornering, and when driving in the rain. I took a trip to Yosemite National Park in February and they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

This tire came as a winter wheel/tire pkg i purchased from TireRack. We in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada have recently experience a strange start to the winter. with temperatures ranging from +15c to -25c, rain, snow, hail. These tires have performed great. Being a high powered RWD car, i haven't had any issues getting moving safely through light and deep snow....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

All the things you can measure about this tire are great. Performance is solid in every condition I've come across (no deep snow here), it's a comfortable ride and quiet.BUT - these are the unluckiest tires I have ever owned. 3 of them have been replaced, one at a time, from road damage. The sole surviving original tire still has plenty of tread so I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I needed a set of tires in a pinch and ended up going with these. I had no prior experience with Hankook, so I had no idea what to expect. I need a good all season tire that can get me through a couple inches of snow, as well as summertime rain storms, and I wanted something that will wear well. We've had two snow storms since the tires were mounted and I've...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

My main reason for selecting this tire is for its winter snow traction. Traveling from the Bay Area to the Tahoe area ski resorts is a yearly occurrence. The OEM tires had decent dry performance but had very little snow traction, even with 4 wheel drive. It was so bad, the car was sliding around on the highway with light snow covering. The new tires were ---...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I drive a 2010 VW CC sport and I've had this tire on my car for 28,000 miles. I bought the VW CC because I wanted a car with a nice balance between sportiness and luxury. I love everything about this tire except for one. This tire feels very precise. The tracking is spot on and there is no wandering. The grip is amazing in both the wet and dry. There is no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

MUST READ! Winter driving experience! Vehicle: 2007 Cobalt SS Supercharged 17PSI LSD 5-Speed Manual. (Wisconsin)Winter experience: I am highly surprised with these tires, everyone was telling me I would not move a FWD with a 45 series tire. I completely disagree! These tires are incredible!! I have driven in snow up to 5 in the worst hilly area you could...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Switched to the Conti's from PS3's. Not nearly as responsive, but now that I've put more than a few thousand miles on them, they really aren't bad at all. Wear is MUCH better and ride is significantly quieter, especially as the tires have worn. Performed surprisingly well in the few snowfalls they have been through.   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 Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Wow! Continental has a home run with these tires. Comfort: The tires are much quieter than I expected for a high performance tire. They are no louder than the Goodyear RSA's that were OEM. The car is much more comfortable now over bumps. Before, I got a sharp impulse bump over uneven manholes, etc; now the bumps have a smooth flow with a lower amplitude to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

The tire performs very well when pushing the Jeep SRT towards its limits. Sometimes difficult to get the tires to even squeal during hard cornering. I understand why this runflat was spec'd for the SRT. It is not for safety concerns and runflat capabilities, but ultimately to take advantage of the stiffer sidewalls. Unfortunately the tire wears extremely...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Excellent tire. Switched from Michelin to Continental Extreme Contact DW. Much quieter and better ride than Michelin yet very responsive for performance driving. Perfect tire for daily driver (comfort) and occasional track day. Tread holds up well. Surprisingly good in the rain. Highly recommended.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Purchased my 2013 2 LTZ Malibu new and all was well with the OEM Goodyear RSA tires until the first winter arrived.I was very concerned because the car was almost undriveable even in light snow.Granted this is a performance car with wide 19 inch tires but I was not expecting such poor/dangerous performance with a OEM all season spec tire.Somehow I made it...  Read More

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

Hey Guys,I just wanted to share my experience with this amazing Michelin product. I own a modified 2014 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 which dyno-tuned at 413hp@407tq. Previously, I purchased Mickey Thompson Street Comp 255/40/19 & 295/35/19 tires about 4 months ago, an extreme summer performance tire. Well the tires were great if you are a road course/autocross...  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
