Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

Are you kidding me? These are snow tires? Amazing!! They are much more quiet than the OEM high performance all seasons that came on my car. They grip better in the wet and the dry, they have firmer cornering behavior and oh yea, they are snow tires! Which means great cold weather breaking power too. Stop reading and just buy them already... I will never put...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

This tire combined with AWD does very well on my BMW 330Xi during the Northeast winter. I am very impressed with the dry, wet, and snow traction for a high performance snow tire. I really don't think any all-season tire can match this level of traction in both dry AND snow conditions. Noise and wear so far have been very good. No complaints. Honestly, this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

Came OEM on my car. Great traction in wet and dry. 8 track days and 8600 miles and still plenty of tread. I am impressed by the mileage for a high performance tire. Tons of grip on the track, predictable slip with appropriate level of sound feedback and feel through the steering. I hear how great Michelin's are but I competed at an auto cross against a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

The greatest upgrade for a car in winter, period. For the longest time I swore by ultra high performance all-season tires, and simply accepted the sliding, and fishtailing as part of normal operation in winter. I was convinced I needed an AWD vehicle to brave the heavier snow. Getting these tires however has completely changed my opinion on it however.The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

I was looking for a high treadwear to get maybe 50,000 miles. These tires performed okay but did not get the Tread Wear I was hoping for. It was a good tire for 30,000 miles.   Read More

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

After some bad luck years ago with Pirellis I gave it one more chance...and I'm glad I did. These tires are absolutely wonderful. From New York pothole streets to Turnpike driving, these tires are just right. For what they are built for,they handle excellent in high speed driving and cornering. (yes, ultra high performance will corner a little better but...  Read More

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

reasonable overall performer. I live in the North west and this is definitely a good 3 season tire with very good performance characteristics for what it is (a ultra-high performance all-season tire). It has good slow breaking away characteristics (progressive) in the dry and copes very well with manageable wet performance as well   Read More

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

The tread wear is an issue but given the performance and how little one can get them on special from Tire Rack, it is the tire to have if driving spirited and performance is high on the agenda. No matter how many horses of power there are, the power needs to be transferred onto the tarmac before warp speed is possible. Now I realize why racing teams carry a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

This tire came as a winter wheel/tire pkg i purchased from TireRack. We in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada have recently experience a strange start to the winter. with temperatures ranging from +15c to -25c, rain, snow, hail. These tires have performed great. Being a high powered RWD car, i haven't had any issues getting moving safely through light and deep snow....  Read More

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

The Michelin Pilot AS3 is simply amazing in the wet and dry (cold or hot weather). I bought this in the summer and so far I've accumulated roughly 5000 miles on these. The steering feel is very responsive, you always know what the tires are doing, I could have sworn this feels very much like a high performance summer tire. In return, you could also feel some...  Read More

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

I do track/autocross racing with my car, and I wanted decent daily tires to have fun with on the streets.I live in FL and I was worried about how they would stand up to all the downpours and rain we get here, I was not disappointed one bit! Wet traction and hydroplane resistance is phenomenal! I was literally doing 40mph slaloms in a thunderstorm and they...  Read More

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

I replaced the more expensive stock Dunlop's and increased the performance. For the price... excellent tires. Road noise very low. Traction on wet/dry is very good. Handling and cornering is tight. And the tires perform well at high speeds and provide a comfortable feeling of gripping the road securely. No regrets on the purchase.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Wow! Continental has a home run with these tires. Comfort: The tires are much quieter than I expected for a high performance tire. They are no louder than the Goodyear RSA's that were OEM. The car is much more comfortable now over bumps. Before, I got a sharp impulse bump over uneven manholes, etc; now the bumps have a smooth flow with a lower amplitude to...  Read More

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

Great tires! My high performance Camaro came with Pirelli P Zero from the factory, excellent tires, but don't last very long. After doing the research, I decided to get the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. After driving on them for 10,000 miles, I do not notice any decrease in traction, steering response, and cornering. The tires ride with comfort, low...  Read More

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

I had old A/S tires and they went bad only after 26,000 miles. Also noise was quite bad. New A/S 3 are much better as far as lateral road holding and cornering. Braking is also much improved. Cornering is phenomenal and fully compatible to Super Sports that I have on my MBW M3. Road noise is okay, but still quite high. Road feel is good and predictable. Yet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

This tire was recommended by the Tire Rack and Michelin sites for this vehicle, a 1999 MB CL500 coupe with 110,000 miles in exceptional condition, incl suspension. Tires are 100 H series (135mph max).I have owned many brands (eight by count) and buy Michelin's, due to the consistent performance, durability and quality. Car has the M119 high performance...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Living in the high sierras, a dedicated winter tire is a must. Normal snowfall is 400 per year although the last two winters have been unfortunately mild.Driving a Q5 S-Line Prestige with a 255/45/20 size, a real winter tire is needed. Previous tires for the Q5 included the Bridgestone LM-60 and the Conti Extreme Contact DWS. The Conti was noisy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Just got a set of 4 new DWS for my Audi A4. Have about 500 miles on them. Drove them in the rain a few times and they had good grip. On dry roads, they were fine. Haven't had the chance to try them on snow yet. It seems like a good all around tire and very comfortable, but the Conti Pro Contacts they replaced were far more engaging in terms of steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (T-Speed Rated)

I have had these tires for about a year now and they have worn wonderfully thus far. The dry performance is fantastic, and wet performance is nearly as good. The only factor playing into the performance of the tire negatively would be the fact that I drive a small car. The Toyota Corolla is very light and easily manipulated by weather factors, however the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A

Ok, this is actually the first time I do an online review, because these tires deserve it. First off, I have a 2011 Nissan versa that came with ContiProContact 185/65 R15 (Horrible tires: very noisy, poor performance, and the rubber started cracking at around 20K miles.I replaced the four tires with the BF 195/65 R15 and I feel the difference right away....  Read More
