Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

OE summer tire on my Performance Pkg '15 Mustang GT 6sp. I've tried to find opportunities/conditions to justify Ford's selection of this tire, but after almost a year in a variety of temperatures and weather conditions I'm really looking forward to replacing the tires, even with plenty of tread left. This tire loses grip under too many conditions, even when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

On my third set of these tires and all were on the 2013 and 2016 Ford C-Max Hybrid. I've experienced non of the negative aspects described by some other reviewers but these tires are on the car only in Spring, Summer, and Fall. In winter I use snow tires as these are not suited to snow and ice. I've never felt unsafe driving at high speeds on the interstate...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

My main tire purchase focus was comfort, road noise and dry traction. I reviewed technical and consumer ratings for several tire options including original equipment Eagle RSA and Michelin Pilot AS 3+ / Primacy MxM4tires and the Pirelli Conturato All Season +. In the end, I selected the Pirellis and I am very happy so far. One tire dealer said I didn't need...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT

Just purchased a new 2015 Ford F150 XLT supercrew on 1-1-2016, and so far I've only put on 1500 miles. That said I've had a fair amount of winter weather driving, and so far these tires have seemed to exceed my expectations (I'm a big Michelin fan). I'll be sure to update as the miles driven increases...So far so good.   Read More

Tire Size 265 70R17 Versus 285 70R17: Can I Use a Larger Size?

Before asking the question, "Can I use a larger tire size?", you should first ask yourself "Should I use a larger tire size?" Why is this important? While going to a larger size may give you that "big tire" look, changing your vehicle's tire size affects more than just cosmetics. Altering your vehicle's tire size can affect speedometer and odometer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is the tire Ford should put on the Explorer Sport. I don't think the DWS would have been as good on my BMW 535 as I tried the DW and it was too soft a sidewall and too slow a steering response. The DWS, in my opinion, is a perfect match for the amount of horsepower the 3.5 EB puts out. I have had several different brands on this Explorer but this one is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 3

I am surprised the tires have lasted as long as they have. Ford told me 2 years ago I was ready for new tires... that was 10,000 miles ago and I still have the original set installed. I really like these tires, they do more than my driving style does. I have the same complaint though that some others have mentioned. As the tire gets close to its end, the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

When I was looking for a set of tires for my 2017 Ford Explorer Platinum I had my heart set on purchasing a set of Michelin, because I loved the ride quality along with the ice and snow traction. After reading Tire Rack customer reviews I thought I would trust everyones comments, and give the 245/60R18 Continental WinterContact SI a try. I must say I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

I purchased a set of the 315x70x17R - C Rated - BFG TAK02 for my 2 door Jeep... you see, prior to these tires I was riding on a set of Nittos with an E rated load index. Yeah, riding on E rated tires on a 2 door Wrangler isn't great, so don't let anybody tell you otherwise.I was apprehensive about these tires for a couple of reasons: for one, these are the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

I did not order my Focus RS with the winter wheel and tire package from the factory - it was not an option for my early order. But when I found out that the factory winter wheel and tire package came with this specific tire, I decided to buy a set of 18 wheels with the Alpins mounted from Tire Rack. I could not be happier with my choice - Ford chose these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

just had some icy conditions so I can do my full review. first of all ride quality cant be better and no noise at all. second, basically no tread wear in 20,000 miles an it was a super hot summer and I pulled my trailer a fair amount. I was on the fence about getting blizzaks for winter but decided not too and it was the right choice because we had some icy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

This is the perfect tire for the Ford Expedition. I ran these on my last Expedition for 9 years. Just put these on my current Expodition today. Did try Destination LE 2 , bad in snow/slush when cornering...even in 4WD...loss of steering ability..sliding around...5 mph! Replaced with these. REvo 2 has been updated with more seratted edges to grip and bite...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

This is my second set of BFG/KO2 tires. The first set I had on my 2008 Toyota Tundra and they worked great, the ride was very smooth and responsive, and extremely quiet. My second set is on my 2014 Ford F250 Crew Cab Super Duty with a plow package. I am by far very pleased with these on my Ford. The Ford requires a rated E type tire. The side walls are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I purchased my second set of continental DWS tires today at the Tire Rack. I live in South Bend Indiana about five minutes away from their location. My rear tires were worn down to where the S was gone. This morning I drove over to their office in a snowstorm and could barely make it there. With the new tires installed I drove home in the same conditions...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500

I finally have enough miles to write a review. These tires are overall very good. They are a little stiff when pumped up to 35 PSI. I usually run them 32 to 30 PSI. Being summer tires, they are noticeably stiffer in the winter until they warm up some. My main concern when buying tires is smooth ride and low noise. These tires are smooth enough and pretty...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

I have a 2014 Ford Fusion SE Hybrid. I used to have the Goodyear EAGLE F1 ASYMMETRIC 2 tires and they were good. I wanted better traction in the rain and I decided to get the BFG G-Force's. So far, I think I'm losing about 3-4 mpg with the new tires. My office is approx. 45 miles from my home and I will typically drive 100 miles a day. At first it seemed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

For any of you experiencing a harsher than normal ride on this tire in your Ford Edge...make sure you have them inflated at 35 psi! As they break in they lose tire pressure. Check the tire pressure every fill up or at the latest once every 3 weeks. Having an under inflated tire or over inflated tire even can makes bumps harsher and rattle the vehicle. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I did a lot of research before deciding on replacement tires for my 2007 Ford Escape. I p;laced an order for 4 of these Michelin Defender tires from TireRack. No matter where I looked the reviews and comments were very good. I had been driving Continental ContiTrac tires which were just OK, I wanted to try something different. These Michelin tires arrived at...  Read More
