My #FirstCarMoment

Michelin's new campaign has us going down memory lane to the time we got our first car. Whether it was handed down to you by your parents, or you worked a few jobs to earn it, none of us will forget the feeling of owning our first car. I got my first Jeep as a Christmas present back when I was in college and home visiting my parents. It was Christmas morning...  Read More

More Grip for Your 2015 Ford Mustang Fastback GT Performance Pack

As we saw for ourselves at Willow Springs, Ford has done an awewsome job with brand new S550 2015 Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack! As you can see in the video, the driver had a great lap, but even the best cars can desire more grip. How about swapping on some custom fit closeout matte graphite 20x10 ET40 Hotckis Y-Sports on Extreme Performance Summer...  Read More

New Lightweight Track Wheel from MOTEGI RACING

Anyone who has spent a Saturday at an autocross event or a road course knows that lighter is better. Lighter is especially better when referring to unsprung weight. Unsprung weight is anything not supported by the suspension of your vehicle such as wheels, tires and brakes. As one of the best bang-for-your-buck upgrades, a set of dedicated lightweight...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I bought these tires for my 2005 Ford Crown Victoria after several winters of getting stuck on a level surface with one inch on snow on it. This car is probably the worst possible vehicle to drive in winter conditions, so I thought it would be a good test vehicle for these tires. So far here in cleveland we have had rain, snow, ice, and slush. These tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

Best snow you will ever buy, period! Everyone who complains about how bad their car is in the winter, I tell them about this tire. Every single person has come back amazed. They can't believe it's the same car. People who think their all season tires are good, haven't tried a true snow tire. Not even close, these tires will walk circles around them. My dad...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

These are my OEM tires on my 2010 Ford Taurus SHO. It is finally time to replace these tires. Being AWD I've rarely rotated them, but even wear. With the SHO if I gun it, they will spin momentarily. Looking at the other tires and reviews of the cheaper Goodyears, I will likely buy these Michelin's again. Like to accelerate 0-70 on freeway ramps, but no...  Read More

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

Purchased the Pilot A/S 3 91V-rated to replace ContiPro Contact SSR 91H run flats. I carry a spare in the trunk.Conti lasted about 25-30k and were gone. Run flats give you piece of mind but they were noisier than Pilot - I noticed it from the beginning I installed these on. Pilots are also provide a softer ride over small bumps and anomalies on a road; Conti...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

2013 was not a good year for me, in terms of getting through the winter. I had to park my 2011 370Z all winter and drive around my 2003 Ford Escape beater. I upgraded to the 2015 WRX STi in 2014 and with the news that 2014 will have bad snow season, I decided to get dedicated snow tires and wheels. I didn't want to break the bank, I decided to go with the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion STR

I am getting a new set after the initial set that came with my Ford Edge lasted 56,000 miles, they would have been on for at least 3,000 more, but a hole in one did not seal so I decided to replace the set. I was amazed at how long they have lasted, and I live on Long Island--lots of driving. Once I had 8 inches of heavy wet snow in my driveway, when my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

Hard to understand the wide divergence in people's evaluation of these tires. I've read the poor performance ones, mostly from the Ford F150s, and then the great ones. Having driven on every surface in my life, some of them racing, and most of them with these tires now, what I believe is that people need a proper wheel, WIDE enough for the tire and proper...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H426

These tires came new on my 2014 Ford Explorer Sport. I usually remove non-Michelin tires as part of a purchase deal or shortly thereafter. I was worried about these tires from the get-go especially reading the Tirerack reviews. In this size range there are not a lot of alternatives and I was not impressed by the Michelin Latitude's ratings or price so I...  Read More

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

My Mazda 3 Drives like a dream with the proper tire inflation. After 28000 miles iI still have 8/32 of tread left on my Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. For the money this tire can't be beat.Today however i perched a set of Michelin Premier A/S for my Ford Focus (Was offered a deal i could not pass up on them) It will be fun to compare them with the Cinturato...  Read More

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

Overall not a bad tire, however only 23,000 miles and need to replace, This is my second set of tires on my truck, others were Goodyear Wranglers, neither were great tires. When inquiring at Ford dealership, the gentleman at the service desk, offered that he also has a truck and has tried numerous varieties of tires and none have gotten much over 25,000...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Winter Slalom KSI

Our Toyota Highlander V6 AWD has always been a good winter vehicle. Excellent in all wintertime driving conditions from glare-ice to a foot or more of deep snow. I drive about 75 miles rt for work each day, mostly expressway driving in Michigan's snow belt. Last winter (2013) was a bad winter so this year I went with as set of winter tires for the first...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro AT-M

We have a 15 Expedition and the tire came stock; i was impressed right away in a good amount of snow 9 inches or so. The truck held strong, braked well, and acceleration was not an issue at all. now we have no snow and it impresses me again. I didn't realize how quiet the tire was until I had to get new tires from my F150 (2014). I went with Toyo ATII - they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

Got these tires in early winter in Ottawa, Canada. Drove to Florida and back I81, I95 all AOK. When new on cold pavement on the way south some noise for 20 min. until they warmed up. With AWD on the big Ford Edge no problem with forward traction in any conditions. Just drove slower on snow covered pavement and passed many cars in the ditch. Based my choice...  Read More
