Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I have never written a review on tires before but felt that these certainly deserve it! My Goodyear RS-A's were down to the wear bars at 30k miles, I wanted something that would give me slightly better ride and since I live in the Midwest some traction in snow. I loved the performance of the RS-A's but truth be told the ride of the Infiniti leaves a little...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I needed a set of tires in a pinch and ended up going with these. I had no prior experience with Hankook, so I had no idea what to expect. I need a good all season tire that can get me through a couple inches of snow, as well as summertime rain storms, and I wanted something that will wear well. We've had two snow storms since the tires were mounted and I've...  Read More

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

These are the third set of tires to be on my 370z, and better than the OEM RE050A's and way better than the horrible Hankook V12's. I went up to 285mm from the 275mm OEM spec. These are noticeably gripper than the RE050A's, almost too grippy, as I had to take time to get used to them for drifting. They surpass the RE050A's in every category, as well as being...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I purchased a set of these tires in hopes of a cross over tire that could handle daily driving and track use. In short: amazing tires! These are some of the most precise and predictable tires I have used, which makes them perfect for spirited driving on curvy canyon roads and occasional ventures to the track. I live in southern California and don't get much...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN S.4.

This is the best tire I've ever used. I have switch to this tires from Hankook ventus cause I've skidded twice on a wet road. After that I've never experience any kind od skid. Truly the traction and responsiveness in wet and dry road is excellent. I already have 50.000 miles on this tire for 5 years and still got 20% on my tire. Definitely I'll stick to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport

I purchased a set of these tires for my '88 Toyota Supra in staggered sizes: 235/45R17 Front, 255/40R17 Rear My car is summer only, and used as a fun car and not a daily driver. I wanted a set of performance tires that weren't so expensive that I would feel bad doing a track day, auto-x, or a smoky burnout. These tires fill that gap quite well.There's no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I was lucky that the new Michelin Premier LTX tires came out in June in for my 2012 Ford Explorer. This is the 3rd set of tires I have put on my car which currently is at 99,500 miles. The first set of Hankook Optimo tires were horribly unsafe and I took them off at 35,000 miles. The next set of Michelin Latitude Tour tires lasted until 98,750 miles but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Last week I put identical sized tires and rims on my AH3 M sport, and my wife's BMW X1. 225-45-18. Michelin x-ice 3.So far, they are the best handling snow tire I have ever used. Dry pavement handling does not feel like a snow tire, but more like an all season. Stability and traction are superb. There is no floating all over the road like I felt with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

This tire is a significant upgrade over the Hankook OE tire. The tread wear has been acceptable. The difference in ride quality between this tire and the OE tire is negligible, though hit does seem to have reduced road noise. Driving in snow is acceptable, but that may be due to the AWD in our automobile.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H426

Very good tire. I've got almost 40,000 on this set of tires. I think I'll be able to get 60,000. I will buy again and definitely recommend.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z III

Initially I was dead set on buying some Hankook VENTUS V12 EVO2 for my car to replace the absolutely awful OEM all seasons on my car. But after careful research and the fair coverage done by Tirerack I decided to try these Sumitomos which were a completely unheard of brand prior to my purchase. What an amazing difference. Treadwear is the same if not better...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

Just purchased these Dunlops to replace the noisy Hankook Optimo H426's on my Crosstour. So far theses tires have been very nice! Nice looking, quiet, they ride well and are much better in the rain. The Hankooks were horrible in the snow even with 4WD. Anxious to see how theses HP's handle winter driving. Not terribly expensive, would consider purchasing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

The tread life of these tires is phenomenal! We put these on at around 48K and now have 106K on the Patriot and we still haven't made it to the wear bars on any of the tires yet and we have missed a few rotations along the way. I am starting to notice a little dry rot and cracking and the front tires tend to feather at the edges despite an alignment check....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

I mostly drive the Vette on nice weekends and occasionally to work. I drive it hard at times. I bought these tires because they were on the car originally when I bought it used. They grip, they feel more stable over the run flats on cold rainy days and they are much less noisier. They do wear out sooner but at the price I got them for (model close out ) thy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

Best upgrade on the car so far (more enjoyable than full coilovers, sway bar, strut bar, big brakes, power mods, etc). These Dunlop DZ102's are mounted to lightweight wheels (15x7 Advanti Storm S1), and their increased grip and responsiveness has transformed the car. Their predictably linear traction and communicative steering feedback tempts you to carry...  Read More

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

So far only 5000 miles but wear is great. Dry traction is awesome, wet traction is fantastic. These are way better than the hankook optimo tires that came from the factory. Would recommend to anyone for a good summer tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V4 ES H105

Better than the Goodyear LS2 by a long shot. Great dry grip and cornering stability. Much quieter than I'm used to. Would buy these again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

Great tires if you don't consider price. When you factor in the price, they are AWESOME tires. I will definitely purchase another set for my M5. Wet performance and hydroplaning resistance is outstanding. Tires are quiet compared to other tires of this size. Tread wear is far better than the Yoko Advan Sports I ran previously. Highly recommended.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z II

I purchased my vehicle with these tires on them and only got 15k out of them because of bad camber issues, but when driving with these, my car could take corners like no other tire I've had before, and I've had the Hankook Ventus, a set of Pirellis (exact model name escapes me), and various other higher end tires and these I would have to say kept up with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

Have driven 1300 miles so far and I am very impressed. These are the quietest tires I have ever owned and they provide a very smooth ride. The sidewalls are a little soft in hard cornering, (they are not performance tires) but they handle well. Wet traction is very good while driving and cornering, but sometimes has slip in initial acceleration from a stop....  Read More
