Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

Great performance tires on all road conditions but I am a little disappointed. At 23,000(rated for 30,000) miles the tread still has more to go but there is excessive tire noise thumping, often called feathering, caused by flat spots on the outside edge of the tire. Four wheel alignment and balance has always been spot on. The noise is forcing me to go...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

I purchased my AWD Acura TLX in January. I have driven the tires in all conditions including light snow, heavy snow, greasy wet snow, packed snow, dry roads, and wet roads. Based on the reviews I read, I expected the worst. I have been pleasantly surprised by the performance. With that being said, I know Acura's excellent AWD system, the TLX's sound...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

This is most likely the best all around tire for a Jeep Wrangler. There are better mud tires, but I am very happy with the performance of this tire under the sleet/icy conditions in Dallas over the last few weeks. For people from the snowbelt reading this review, we really don't clear the roads in Dallas. Most of the streets will become packed sleet/snow,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Winter

These tires are great for what they're suppose to do. I drive a small FWD car in a mountainous area of east PA (anyone from the area knows we get a lot of snow). My car has no AWD, traction control, hill descent control, or any of those new safety features. The point is my car was not made to track through deep snow. Snow performance:In light snow (just a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring

Got these tires with a wheel package (18x8 Enkei Performance M52 Hyper black). Awesome combo. The wheels are very high quality and really bump up the appearance of an already great looking vehicle (my opinion of course).The stock Goodyear RS-A's were great tires. I was going to get them again, but upon reviews I splurged for what reviews said were an even...  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 Goodyear Assurance CS TripleTred All-Season

I just bought these Goodyear Assurance Triple Tread tires today but they are my 3rd set of the same tires. My first set was named Fortera Triple Tread but they were the same tire. I estimate I have driven about 114,000 miles on these tires. My second set was only about 1/2 worn when I lost my previous truck in a rollover accident last November. If I had been...  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 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 Fortera SL Edition

I have driven 45000 miles on these tires from California to North Carolina and everywhere and every type of road surface. I have a 2010 Silverado that has been modified for aggressive driving, 3 5 inch drop kit, EBC brakes, Airaid Cold Air intake, 6.2L that has been tuned for performance. The truck weights 5300 pounds and these tires have taken everything...  Read More

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

This tire is the gold standard. High Speed W rating; excellent in wet / dry / snow. High performance / everyday quiet. Consistant contact patch. communicates when driving at the limit to let you know exactly how far from 10/10s your are. Truely one of the finest tires I have purchased in 35 years.This tire is the gold standard. VW should have made this the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max

51,000 miles with 225/65 R17 ties on a Town & Country and I'm shopping for new. Mechanic says improper alignment caused uneven tread wear as tires are rated for 65,000 miles. Minivan with kids/dvd players - the tires were quiet and we never had performance issues with rain/snow or otherwise and we've driven in NJ, D.C. and Seattle area. No cracking ever...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2

Good wet and dry performance for the money. Rides well also. BIG performance improvement over OEM 235/50 18 Pirelli Zero Neros.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I have had these tires on everyone of my pickups and I live in eastern Oregon. We get a mixture of everything! These tires have out performed lots of other tires and I couldnt ask for anything better. I tow my gooseneck loaded with 24,000 lbs of hay, atv, camp trailer,stock trailer. These tires have great wear and durability. Wheather it be in the mountains...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

After 2000 miles with this tire it is still a bit early to draw conclusions but so far I feel really happy with it. They are a vast improvement over the stock summer RFT (Goodyear NCT5, which is NOT a performance summer tire in my book). I was fearing a lack of steering feel based on the reviews I saw but I did not notice any lack of it compared to my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

These are the OEM tires on my 2009 MDX. Over the last 15 years I have had several sets of Goodyears, several sets of Bridgestones, one set of Pirellis and one other set of Michelins. These tires have performed the best of all of them. While these Michelins are not perfect, I would definitely consider buying them again if they were priced competitvely.These...  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

Sumitomo's Affordable Performance All-Season Tire Just Got Better

Sumitomo traces its roots back to its relationship with Dunlop that started in 1909 and has been engineering and producing world-class tires now for decades. In the late 1990s, Sumitomo and Goodyear formed a joint venture in which the two manufacturers would produce tires for each other. In a way, you can think of Sumitomo as the "Goodyear of Japan."  For...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Fortera HL Edition

My new Grand Cherokee Summit came equipped with the Fortera HL. I have had years of Goodyear tire experience on SUV's. Performance has always been good across their wide range of treads. Tread life has generally been not so good across the Goodyear brand. The Fortera HL so far is much better. I notice no tread wear at all to date.I had the vehicle since...  Read More
