Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A

I've been reading various good and bad reviews about this tire. Confusing to me that some really don't like this tire. Possibly certain tires suit certain vehicles differently?These tires came as OE on my new 2011 Maxima. The car and the tires are both great in my opinion. The tires are smooth and quiet, which again, is not the experience everyone seems to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Awesome tires. They stick like glue to the road. Very little road noise but a tad more than other tires I have owned. However, not nearly as noisy and the Goodyears or Bridgestones I have had in the past. Very responsive and good tire wear. I drive freeways and mountain roads a lot. City driving occasionally.Love these tires and I bought them for my '11...  Read More

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

I know, with only 550 miles what can I say about these Pirellis? First some background - I purchased these tires to replace a set of Goodyears (new at the time) that came on our Saab when we bought it used. They were simply awful, the harshest and noisiest tires I'd ever experienced, and they just got worse with wear. Saab 9-5's have a reputation for some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A

The car came with Goodyears, which were ok, but these BF Goodrich Advantage T/A made a big difference. They ride more comfortable and the noise level is down compared to the GY's. I have great traction on both dry and wet roads, even in the snow. Just much more pleasant as an every day driver with these tires. The treadwear is excellent. I don't feel I gave...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (W-Speed Rated)

Recently installed a set of Goodyear Eagle A/S on my 2009 Pontiac G8 GT and love them. The previous tires were Michelin Pilot Super Sports, they had good traction on dry, warm, smooth pavement, but rode rough, noisy and had a nasty habit of following every groove and rut in the pavement. Scary as -------- in the wet. Only got 20,000 miles out of them before...  Read More

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

Went from Goodyear to this tire and the difference is amazing. Feels like I am driving on clouds. I have only had the tires for about a month and every week I find myself having a conversation about how great my car feels since putting these tires on. The road noise is nonexistent and the grip feels like I am at times riding on rails. I would recommend the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Obviously this is a very early review, but since there are not a lot of reviews on this tire yet I waned to get something out there for those considering the tire. Initial impressions are excellent. These replaced the ridiculous Goodyear LS2's and the dry traction, handling, ride and noise comfort are incredibly good. These tires have taken the notchyness...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

These have been on the car for only a week, so the jury is still out on longer-term satisfaction, but I can confirm the maker's claim that they ride like non-run-flat tires. HUGE difference (improvement) in feel through the steering and seat-of-the-pants. If you live where roads can be choppy and you're tired of the harshness of the OEM Goodyears or...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

Excellent all around winter tire for areas receiving moderate snow. Majority of my driving in mid west where we experienced significant snow and ice this winter. Tires lean toward cold/dry performance over deep snow performance. Amazing responsiveness for a winter tire. Have had Blizzak on other cars and those are superior in DEEP snow. However Blizzak and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I had four of these installed after the stock Bridgestone Potenza RE92As wore out. Right away, I thought the car felt sportier. I have steel wheels with hubcaps, and the wheelguard on these Goodyears really helped to surround and integrate the hubcap and eliminate the cheap feel that hubcaps sometimes have.I've also been impressed by the quality of this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

These cars came stock on my car and I have now blown two tires driving over pot holes. I usually try to avoid pot holes at all cost but kinda hard after NY winters, I hit another one last night by accident and popped another tire. They are very soft but since my car is a lease I am forced to buy another one to match all 4. If this was not a lease I would def...  Read More

Michelin vs Goodyear Tires

Even those who have not done much research into tires recognize the Goodyear and Michelin brands. Being respected brands and household names, they're often sought out by shoppers as a primary choice. Decades of experience designing and manufacturing tires have given both companies a well-deserved reputation.   In order to maintain their good names, major...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (W-Speed Rated)

Let me begin by saying that I always read these reviews with an open mind. But I never know how to really take them. So I write this strictly as a comparison between the tire that came on my car and the Goodyear eagle sport. My mazda 3 came with Yokohama avids in 205/50 17. The cars handling made up for what the tires lacked. The Yokohamas didn't do anything...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A

Most people writing these reviews do not understand this tire. It is a high performance tire. That means it is not designed to be quiet, smooth, and long wearing.What it is designed for is police service. It should be run at its maximum pressure or it will wear out quickly due to its softer performance compound. Many departments run these at 41 psi...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

Living in Wisconsin and driving a front engine heavy RWD car, I've definitely learned that all-season tires will not give you much confidence. These Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT's were the answer! They provide excellent braking, acceleration and handling in snow and ice. So despite the RWD vehicle, I find the car braking and handling better than most FWD cars...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (W-Speed Rated)

Dont have to many miles on them so far, but so far amazed for the price they totally changed how our 2011 subaru legacy rides and handles. It handles and rides the way the car should have from the factory. quieter, smoother, and handles incredibly. Worth every penny! Even my wife noticed the differences, and she isnt a car girl   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

These tires met and exceeded all reasonable expectations over the Winter past which saw a much higher than normal amount of snow on the roads from hard snow pack to iced intersections, deep new fallen heavy snow (wet & dry) and extreme cold where road salt was entirely ineffective. All-in-all it was a bitter, long and snowy season best forgotten but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I put a set of these on my Volvo T5R as a replacement for Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3 tires. I had great performance from the Goodyears compared to the Pirelli P Zeros that came on the car. However, the Pilot Super Sports were even better than the Goodyears were. They stick to the road like glue, even in wet, and ride softer and quieter.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I am not a reviewer. However after researching this style tire and having had Goodyears on the car I was needing something to last. The Generals had some good reviews and I needed a year round tire so I purchased the RT 43 Grand Touring. I am totally satisfied so far they are quiet smooth and took very little weight to balance. I'm in NC and it's hot right...  Read More
