Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

I wanted the 18 wheels on my Challenger and bought a SXT. Replaced the 235/55/18 with these Dunlop Signature HP 255/55/18. The original were touring tires and had a good ride. These wider ultra high performance Dunlops have turned my Challenger into a Mini Scat -------- Cat. They handle much better and only weigh in at 2 extra pounds. Plus the wider tires...  Read More

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

It is somewhat difficult to distinguish the performance benefits of these tires from those of permanent AWD. A set of Yokohama ENVigor ultra high performance all-season tires, which preceded the current set of Cinturato P7 All Season Plus tires, provides the primary benchmark by which comparison may be drawn.Winter Storm Jonas of 2016 was a challenge for...  Read More

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

After reading dozens of reviews of this tire, by far the most accurate was posted on 4/5/2016 from the owner of a Lexus GS 350. That review is exactly the way I feel about my G37x sedan, which is a dynamically similar sports sedan. This tire lives up to the high marks for a smooth, quiet ride and great traction. It's an excellent choice for most cars, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These tires have been an absolute joy. The OEM Dunlops were garbage in comparison. The Michelins have proven to be decent for tread wear given they are high performance summer tires. On very few occasions I have been able to break traction with them despite my best efforts with a stage 1 STI. The Dunlops would squiggle about all over, coupled with an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP

Great tire. No side wall flex before/during cornering and instant response. Great grip off the line and in the corners. I drive in AZ with hot rough roads and occasionally during the monsoons. Would buy again but they stopped making them. You are going to start losing traction on any tire after about a year and a half or 15000 miles. No tire I found...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These pilot super sports are amazing tires! Coming off a worn out set of continental conti sport contact threes that I had a high opinion of. The PS3s are the best tires I have ever driven on. They are sticky, quiet and great in the rain. We took a trip from MD to Missouri and not only did they perform flawlessly on the highway, but they did equally great on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I recently replaced the stock Good Year Eagle Supercar performance tires. When I changed to the Continentals, I found out that my wheels were stacked backwards! Some idiot had probably rotated the tires without paying attention to the staggered sizes. My front tires were 255/45/20 and rears were 245/45/20! Those tires lasted about 24,000 miles with fairly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

This set of tires replaced #4 Hankook Ventus Noble S2 A/S High Performance tires which wore bad and wore out around 20k miles of easy to moderate driving. The BFGoodrich tires have better cornering & dry grip. Better braking and acceleration then the Hankooks. The BFs also performan better in not Hydroplaning and does great in cornering & wet conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

This is the second set I have put on my BMW. These tires are great! Very happy with the purchase. I do both highway and city type of driving in this particular car (my daily driver) and I have been very pleased with they way they have performed and will buy them again. My only issue is that after they get about half worn, they get rather noisy! In my BMW it...  Read More

This involves changing the tire and/or wheel size from the original size in a controlled manner so as to maintain certain critical dimensions. When creating a Plus Size fitment,...  Read More

Potenza RE-11 Positioned for Long Run at the Top

There’s no doubt temperatures around the country are at summer time highs. This time of the year is great for cookouts, hanging by the pool…and pushing your car’s traction and handling levels. And no tire is better suited for that in our Extreme Performance Summer category right now than the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11. Currently ranked the top tire in its...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I want to provide my initial impression of the Extreme Contact DWS 06 compared to the Pirelli Cinturato P7 A/S Plus that I just returned after 1,000 miles. I replaced the original Good Year Eagle RS-A with the P7 and noticed a significant reduction in steering response, handling, and road holding on the highway. Shame on me for going from a HP tire to a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I had these tires installed at the South Bend Distribution Center in March of 2016. First off, I can not recommend having Tire Rack install your tires enough. Fantastic experience!South Bend's location is such that you are just south of Michigan in Indiana and only about 50 minutes from Lake Michigan to east. I tell you this because when I drove from central...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I mostly plonk around the local twisties and highway with my 355, but a recent ~90 mile introductory track day at the nearby road course really put these babies front-and-center as incredible performance tires. A two mile ring with 9 total turns, including a sequence of diabolical hairpins, challenged me like I've never been challenged as an amateur sport...  Read More

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

Great tire so far. Used on 2013 Toyota 4Runner Limited with All Wheel Drive (torsen center differential) and 17 inch SR5 wheels for better off road performance than the stock 20 inch rims. The tires exhibited good hiway performance in wet and dry conditions no hydroplaning at speed limit (70 to 75 mph) in heavy rains on interstates. Predictable response...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400

Typical O.E. tire quality and performance. Standard ride comfort, squeals easily during cornering, limited traction in wet and light snow. Compared this tire on O.E. wheel set and Volk CE28n wheel set, identical sets of 225/55r18 Duelers H/L 400. Both tire sets were O.E. on 2015 Subaru Forester XT Touring models with similar manufacturing dates.Currently...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

My 2015 Boxster S came with 20 inch Pirrelli P Zero Max Performance Summer Tires. They provide satisfactory performance when its sunny and hot. When the temps start to drop in the spring and fall they become a poor tire, with increase in road noise and ride discomfort. So after some research I bought a set of Oz Racing Leggera HLT rims with the BF Goodrich...  Read More
