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

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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I live in Ottawa, Canada where the average snowfall is measured in yards rather than inches. We have had freezing rain storms given the global warming and the Michelin X-i13 tires performed almost flawlessly in every situation. Their only weakness in my opinion is the softer sidewall designed and used for comfort rather than for immediate response on my...  Read More

Ice Traction Comparison of All-Season, Summer and Winter / Snow Tires

You may already know that winter / snow tires offer increased traction and safety on snowy and slushy roads. However, did you know that the right winter tire can also make a dramatic difference on ice-covered roads? Many drivers assume there's no way for any tire to have real traction on ice. The truth is you can improve braking, acceleration and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

This tire would not balance on my car...period!! The dealer had to use 24 & 26lb weights (which is unheard of) and they still wouldn't balance. I don't know how many people had the same issue, but i definetly wouldn't reccommend them for the G35x. Infiniti owners, save yourself the trouble and get bridgestone blizzaks.They're not as soft as the generals and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

Just acquired these for my Infiniti g37X to replace the OEM Goodyear Eagle RSAs which still had 3/32nds left with 35K miles. They had become less smooth after 20k miles which is a common complaint about the Eagles. Initial impressions of the Kumhos show that it is quieter, smoother, seems to exhibit solid grip in the recent rains, but at a slight sacrifice...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I live in Montreal Canada. Our winters are harsh to say the least. I used to commute 45 miles per day, half the year in snow/icy winter.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

Since purchasing these Pirelli's (09/25/12) I've been able to test them on dry,wet,snow and ice which is common for Alberta this time of year. I can say that they are the best winter tires I have driven on! I was able to navigate thru snow and slush as deep as 5 in with ease! Braking, cornering and handling on ice, deep snow and packed snow is excellent!I...  Read More

Winter / Snow Tires for BMW M3 Competition Package

The Competition Package (ZCP) for the BMW M3 includes 19" wheels that are a half-inch wider than the standard options. We commonly recommend 235/35R19 on the front and 255/35R19 on the rear for a typical M3 Winter / Snow Tire & Wheel Package, but those sizes will give a stretched look on the ZCP wheels. While the 9" and 10" wide wheels are technically within...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V4 ES H105

After 30,000 miles I am still pleased with these tires. The all-around performance is very good. These are all-season tires, and as such they have to try and do all things well. They manage great in wet weather, very good on dry pavement and acceptable in the snow. They've worn very well, I think I have probably 15-20K miles left on them. I like to drive the...  Read More

New Michelin X-Ice Xi3 vs. Michelin X-Ice Xi2

Since its introduction, the Michelin X-Ice Xi2 has impressed us with outstanding snow and ice traction, along with respectable road manners and handling for a dedicated winter / snow tire. Designed to tackle the coldest winter driving conditions around the world, I liked this tire so much that the Infiniti tires for my 2009 G37x Coupe are X-Ice Xi2s. In a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The original tires on my Infiniti G37 IPL were Bridgestone Potenza RE050A, mediocre at best. I had Goodyear Eagle F1's on my Jag and they were very good but tread life was 12K and they were shot. The Michelin Pilot Super Sports are wonderful, fantastic handling, quiet, and I should get 20K miles which is all I ask.Best max performance tires I have ever had,...  Read More
