Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

We replaced the 20 wheels and tires and installed these 22 tires with new wheels. I drove a new Expedition Platinum with factory 22s and Pirelli tires, tire noise was pretty evident. After replacing the Hankook 20s with these 22s I couldn't believe the smooth ride and 0 tire noise! I was apprehensive about replacing 20s with 22s for ride quality and tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus R-S4

Second year in auto-x. Bought these tires because re-71's were not available. My first impression is that this is a superior tire for autocross. I was somewhat concerned because I had read a review that said they squeal (I came from a Bridgestone Potenza 760, which does squeals a lot and not the best tire for autocross). I can report In 20 runs with these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus Z214

Having recently graduated to Hoosier R7s from R-Comps (Toyo R888s) on my E36 BMW M3 at the track (and LOVE them) I wanted to up the ante on my hot rod Porsche as well. Not able to fit Hoosiers to my current car set up I looked for something similar which would fit the car and these were the only candidates. The Hankooks are in no way directly comparable to...  Read More

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

These tires are on our 07 MB GL450. I was torn between another value tire and a good deal on the Continentals OEM. The Conti's wore out like in 15000 miles. I decided not to go with a value tire as they have not performed well, nor lasted well, nor have any decent ride quality in this vehicle. (Last value tire was a set of Hankooks) These have an 80k mileage...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I bought these tires to replace the original equipment ones at 35,000 miles. What an improvement! Over the past 40 years I've changed tires many, many times and the step improvement with these tires is unprecedented. Minor bumps have disappeared, the ride is quiet, and handling is secure. ....haven't tried them in snow yet.   Read More

Need More Grip? Check Out the Latest Extreme Performance Summer Challengers to the Bridgestone Potenze RE-71R

Falken has come out with the RT615K+. And Hankook has rolled out the Ventus R-S4. BFGoodrich g-...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I have roughly 5,000 miles on these tires over the course of 5 months, on all road types (excluding gravel). I love them.I drive extremely aggressively and they are the best tires I've put on my Camaro to date, far better than the factory Pirelli's. More grip both lateral and in a straight line, much better in wet/cold conditions, tough and resistant to road...  Read More

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

Just got a set of these to replace the stock Hankook H428 tires. This car now handles like a fun small hatchback should. The traction in snow is orders of magnitude better then stock tires. I am no longer afraid to drive in an inch of snow. The ride is much smoother and I no longer get jolted over every small bump. The cornering is much more responsive and I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

(GTI with Performance Pkg-6sp manual) Initial Review 2500mi Tires purchased to replace OEM All Season Hankook H Rated VENTUS S1 NOBLE2. (Planning to purchase Goodyear PSS summer tires in the spring.)This has been a challenging winter in Chicago area with significant snow, ice and very low temperatures. The Pirelli Scotto3 (non-run flat) have performed with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

These Conti True Contacts are the 3rd set of tires on this car. First 2 were Goodyear Assurance ComforTred (not Touring) and Hankook Optimo H727. Both were decent. I got cupping on the H727's and it's too early to tell if that will be an issue on the Conti's - but the wear is very slow so far. After only 17k miles, I love the TrueContacts. They are extremely...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I live in the midwest in a state that is known for encountering quickly changing weather. I need to be prepared to drive in all types of weather conditions. Hot,cold, below zero temps,dry, wet, ice, light and deep snow, we get it all. I am a have been a huge Yokohama fan and was set to purchase some for my (new to me) '13 Azera. After much consideration,...  Read More

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

I was initially put off purchasing these tyres by other users' reports of noise levels, but I'm glad that I took that under advisement & bought them anyway. They do whir in the background at speeds below 60- 70km an hour when brand new (perhaps that'll decrease when they wear in), but the noise disappears on highways and to be honest, I find the noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental VancoWinter

The vehicle came standard with the Hankook Dynapro HT tires that provided little to no traction during winter driving. Had my first experience driving through snow, sleet, and freezing rain, I had no issues getting around while passing up other vehicles of the same caliber work van getting stuck. Would definitely recommend this tire for winter driving.   Read More

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

This may be just as much a nod to downsizing as it is to this tire, but I do not want to minimize the ride quality improvement over the factory Hankook 19 tires that came on my AWD 300. They have been great tires. But moving down to 18 wheels w/ these 225/60R18 Sumitomo's provided a noticeable improvement in ride quality...this set up makes uneven pavement...  Read More

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

Sorry I couldn't give a full review since this is my secretary's Volvo. The C 30 had Hankooks summer tires that were worn when she bought the car. So no fair comparison could be made. After the tires were installed, I took it for an aggressive drive. I was very pleased with very minimal side wall flex. On the highway at 80mph it was very quiet and stable. It...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08 R

I installed these tires on my M3 E92 on two occasions. First time they lasted 3,772 miles and were bald when I removed them. I complained to TireRack and they went the distance for me. Yokohama said the tires did not have a tread-wear warranty but agreed to give me one tire free. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me I installed the new set...  Read More

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

Wow. What a great tires! I was looking for my previous Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS replacement. These tires were extremely loud and uncomfortable. I also hated the cheap looking pattern. I decided to replace them with Pirelli P7 Cinturato and I could not be happier with my choice. Tires are so quiet that the only thing that I hear now is the wind at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These are my second set on a second car. On both cars i averaged about 50,000 miles each. Ive driven in various conditions to a foot of snow, 1/4 of packed ice, heavy rain and easy 120*F roads. Minimal issues in comparison to Hankook and Eagle tires i have also had. These DWS have outlasted all tires i have ever had. I had my car in Germany and ran them up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I upgraded the wheels and tires on my Focus to 17 Ford wheels and the Michelin PSS. They are a very nice combination, they ride must more comfortably than the old 15 wheels with the stock Hankooks. I don't regret this one bit. It really livens up the car.   Read More
