Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Previously I always bought high performance tires for my Infinitis. Not anymore. The Michelin Premier AS, a grand touring tire, is the best handling, quietest tire I have ever owned. It does not compromise on performance. I have not driven it on ice or snow, but wet and dry traction are superb. I live in West Virginia, where the roads are winding and often...  Read More

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

If you have an Infiniti Q50 with the runflat OEMs, you have no idea what this car can actually do. I've read good reviews on this tire after extensive research and it seemed like a good fit for this car; as I was very disappointed in how the car preformed with the OEM tires. I almost didn't get the Q50 because of the ride it delivered stock.These tires are...  Read More

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

We bought my wife a Forester in November of 2010. We had a pretty bad winter that year, and she complained that her car wasn't doing well in the snow. I looked up the Yokohama Geolandres that were the OEM tires, and was shocked to see the bad reviews. Picked up a set of these Pirellis from Tire Rack (based on the great reviews). Well. They just transformed...  Read More

Second Season with Dunlop Winter Maxx Winter Tires

Last year, I purchased Dunlop Winter Maxx tires in the middle of winter for my 2009 Infiniti G37X coupe. These tires replaced the Graspic DS-2 and performed very well in their first season of use. But, how would they perform in season two?  So far, this winter season has provided me with a variety of conditions in which to further evaluate these tires....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx A1-A A/S

These are OEM tires on my 2009 Infiniti G37x. They are driven in spring/summer/fall and never in the snow. I put 37,000 miles on them.The Dunlop is an average tire with good road holding (dry/wet)on the highways. However it creates fairly loud noise on road joints. During the last year the car jarred on ruts and became very sensitive on the steering (pulling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I am ridiculously happy with these tires. They have been on the car for nearly 2.5 years and 35K miles. The DWS in the tread is still all visible; S is supposed to disappear first, indicating that snow use is not advised. Our WA freeways are pretty rough, so they are a little noisy, but on a smooth surface they are still very quiet. I have more issue with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 7000 A/S

It came as OE for my infiniti which is AWD. I am researching tires for my other car as unfortunately I sold my infiniti, over this last snow storm my new car slipped and ran into curb causing lots of damage. Any case I used to drive on these tires in snow and quater inch ice. Actually I was the designated driver for my co workers as they usually got stuck at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

One of the best all round tires I've seen for passenger cars and minivans. I've had this tire on 2 minivans, a 1994 and 2007 Caravan and a 2002 Subaru Outback. On the Outback, they would pull through 8 of snow with no problem. Have never had an issue with wet traction or hydroplaning on any of the vehicles. I have 86,000 miles on them on the 2007 Caravan,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

Bought these to go on my girlfriend's infiniti. Replace some old Goodyears. I'm one for spirited driving and these tires hold up well for that. dry grip is solid and it takes some pushing to get these tires to their limits in a big sedan. very stable overall, but there's a very slight hesitation when doing sudden course correction (did a quick homebrew...  Read More

New Dunlop Winter Maxx Tires Installed on My Car

After three years of faithful service, my Michelin X-Ice Xi2 winter / snow tires have finally worn to the point where they needed to be replaced. While they were not bald, the tread depth had worn to about 4/32nds of an inch, which is more shallow than recommended for effective snow traction. Tires at low tread depths can only "nibble" into snow instead of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is my second set of Blizzaks for my Infiniti. I have never gotten stuck or stranded with my rear wheel drive Infiniti in 8 years of driving during MINNESOTA winters. I think that statement says it all.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

So far, this has been an excellent tire for the AWD Infinity. Very good performance for the price. Maintains traction in wet & snow. I find the dry road noise level to be completely acceptable on smooth pavement.   Read More

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

Wow, these tires rock. I have gone through a bunch of different tires on my car (Kumho Ecsta 4x, Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position, Continental ExtremeContact and Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus to name a few). Since I drive aggressively, I don't get to many miles from my tires.I live in the northeast and have already experienced 4+ inches of snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I have been riding on Bridgestone tires for years. I wanted a tire rated for a quiet smooth ride for the 1995 land yacht, and I have not been disappointed. Tire wear is non-existent, handling in wet and dry is great. I recently purchased a '10 Infiniti G37 sedan and when the tires on the G need replacing I am going to purchase the Serenity Plus.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H431

After reading all the negative comments about excessive noise and terrible wet traction I was a bit aprehensive about these tires. Admittedly I have only 2,000 miles on the car but so far here are my observations:Noise - They are no noisier than the Michelin's on the Infiniti M35x I traded in on the Optima. I do not find the road noise excessive in any way....  Read More

With tire technology advancing quickly these days, it's rare to find a model of tire that stands the test of time and remains competitive in its category year after year.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 7000 A/S

I'm a Moderator of an Infiniti EX35 Forum... and if you buy an EX35 with 18 inch Wheels, the Factory-installed OEM Tire is the Dunlop Sport 7000 A/S. These Tires are junk. People on our Forum are getting very poor Tread-wear with them. We have multiple Threads discussing the Dunlops... and most of us can't wait to swap them out with Michelins. Avoid these...  Read More
