Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

Just put these on, other than some impact harshness (45 series) they're ---- impressive for the money, quiet and smooth. They balanced perfectly which is more than I can say for the OE Firestone Firehawk GT. I wanted the Eagle Sports but read reviews about balance/ride disturbance issues (typical Goodyear). Steering response off center is a but slow, but I'm...  Read More

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

Bought these to replace the extremely noisy Bridgestone Turanza's that came factory with my 12' mazda3 iGT. I upgraded to 17 matte anthracite MOMO revenge wheels in the process (factory size for Mazda3 sGT) to give a more aggressive look as well as cut down on the sidewall to increase handling. I STRONGLY recommend doing this to anyone with $ to do so. This...  Read More

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

Pilot Sport AS3 in 215/45-17 (V rated) on a mostly stock 2005 Subaru Legacy GT. I'm pretty happy with these after 25,000 miles of mostly highway driving. Dry traction and steering response are much better than I expected from a 500 treadwear all-season tire, and I've been seriously impressed with their capability in the rain, nary a hiccup in heavy downpours...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

These tires replaced a set of Goodyear Eagle GT's. I was not pleased with the harshness of the ride produced by the Goodyears and the wear was rather rapid. I drive the car only on weekends and on trips and realized 54,000 miles on them, which is is not unreasonable. Yet I had to to rotate them frequently to balance that wear, evenly.In comparison, the BFG's...  Read More

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

I just got this tires for my Honda and got to try this with light snow. So far I am very impress especially coming from a GoodYear Eagle GT. I have yet to experience cornering, noise level on high speeds, dry road and traction. I will have to review this tires again after a few months. I choose A/S tires because of the expenses I would have to worry just...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I put these tires on after only 12K on the terrible OEM PIRELLI all-weather. Like night and day, not even in the same category. The Bridgestone S-04 are top notch for a Mustang GT. I have the Roush racing suspension, exhaust, and the Ford Racing ProCal tune. These tires keep the rear end firmly planted absolutely no wheel spin or fish tailing when going hard...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Nero GT

I have only driven 500 miles on these tires so far but I can say they feel great. The 17 tires are a + 2 size on my 88 BMW M3 and yet the ride is great. Very quite tire with excellent turn in and overall cornering feel. I will update this review as I put more miles on my tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

I've purchased these tires for 3 cars over the past 2 years. 2003 Neon SRT, 2003 Lancer OZ Rally, and a 2012 Lancer GT. I do the research, and still end up with the same product. This last set we bought because my old tires were terrible in snow. These new Generals are wonderful in snow. They give good handling, ride very smooth, and for the money, you can't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

NOISY.I expected that, though, and I've driven on worse. These things STICK. I don't advocate law-breaking and I don't want to incriminate myself... that being said, These tires combined with AWD, turbo, and low center of gravity inherent in the Legacy GT, I feel as if the tires allow the car to bend space/time. I seem able to arrive at work before I've...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

I bought these tires in 2012 I had them studded. I live in the country and have never misses work. They do great on my 05 Mustang Gt I had all 4 studded and I drive 50 miles back and forth to work every day. They do great in ice covered roads. As long as the snow is not past the bumper it dose great. Every one I work with can't believe that I drive a mustang...  Read More

KW Variant 3 Coil-Over: Race Technology That's Comfortable on the Street

Having just purchased a 2012 Ford Mustang GT, I felt that many aspects of the vehicle's performance were phenomenal, however the suspension left me wanting more. While the car provides good lateral grip in corners and performs better than any other generation of stock Mustang, the soft spring rates contribute to excessive body roll and front-end pitch under...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Nero All Season

These came stock on the 19 x 8.5 rims of my 2011 Mustang GT. I drive 6-speed with 3.55 gears, so the rear tires get a bit more shock treatment than that of an automatic.Brand new, the tires are great. You almost can't get them to break traction short of turning the traction control off and dumping the cluth after reving up to red line. But after doing that a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk GT

i originally purchased these tires, because it was on sale. buy 3 get one free. these tires improved my cars handling compared to the oe tires but the treads dont last at all. after 35k its about time to replace them. the tire noise is also excessive. You practically have to use your outdoor voices to have a conversation in the car. would not recommend it at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Nero All Season

Amazing Snow and Ice performance out of these OE tires on my '13 Mustang GT. I had a CTS prior to this that I had equipped with Continental DWS high Performance All Season. The Caddy had to be parked if 2 snowflakes fell. I can drive the Mustang GT equipped with thes P Zeros all day in any weather (including light to medium SNOW) !   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

After having really good luck with a set of General's Altimax HP on my Pontiac Grand Prix, I decided to try their GMAX AS3's on my Pontiac G8 GT. I cant tell you how disappointed I am with this tire. NOISE! I have full exhaust from the manifolds back and while crusing down the highway at 70-75 the tires were as loud as the exhaust note. Treadware was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT

I got 35K out of the OEM Bridgestones. OEM were on back order however so I went with these. This tire seems to be an improvement, but the Bridgestones had 26K miles on them when I bought the car so I don't have an equal frame of reference. The tire seems to great corning and steering response, with a little more forgiving ride and lower road noise than the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

Just got this installed yesterday. Thanks Tirerack for quick shipping! Coming from Goodyear Eagle GT in 235/40/18 with 21k miles, these Kumho's are a little quieter and seems to be softer riding (softer sidewall maybe?) Can't really speak to their handling as I've only put about 50 miles on it.One thing I noticed is the lack of a rim guard on the Kumho. On...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

Rear end of these cars tend to get away from you on wet roads. These tires perform much better on wet pavement than the eagle gts i had on before. Great dry traction. Posted 40 corners I can take at 80+ without issues. Will buy again if tread wear is as good as advertised.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT

I have 25k of trouble free driving on these tires. There have been no problems at all, still running perfectly and giving great performance.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiSportContact 2

O.E. tire on 2010 Cobalt SS/TC. Tire is at all times predictable. Dry traction stellar at 75 degrees F and I've seen reviews that say it gets better as it heats up. Definitely a summer tire. Minor flat spot vibration on cool mornings until you put a mile or two on them (@35mph). Wet anti spin traction is a little disappointing but that could be more the...  Read More
