Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

I purchased a set of this for my wife's Blazer SUV 4x4 and these are the worst set of tires I have ever owned. The Tiger Paws that was OEM was better-replaced these at 39,000 miles with LTX M/S, those lasted until 96,000 miles (60,000 miles on those). Should have bought another set of LTX 2's. Well Be replacing them this winter will be worn out by then down...  Read More

Track & Competition DOT Tires That Should Only Be Used on the Track

Are you looking for more grip than the sticky tire options covered here? Track & Competition DOT tires give you the highest level of grip, but their lighter carcasses, shallower tread depths and gummy compounds also make them too fragile for street use. Street use will also expose them to more heat cycles eventually causing severe drops in grip level. These...  Read More

Dodge Journey Tire Options for 19" Wheels

First offered in 2008, the Journey comes in multiple trim levels, each with optional wheel and tire sizes.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

Adding my review mainly because I have read so many bad reviews for these tires on wet surfaces. I have enjoyed EXCELLENT traction in extreme Florida rain. I feel very confident traveling in a pack at a moderate rate of speed in very wet conditions and with almost as much confidence as I do when traveling in the wet at speed in my 2007 Tahoe equipped with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

I'm a 67yo retired COP. Saying this I still drive lika a COP, but I am driving a Kia Sportage. Nice running veh., but not a Corvette. So far I am extremely pleased with these tires. They gave me good handling & traction in snow when living in Maryland. Now in Myrtle Beach, SC I longer think of ice & snow. Wet weather traction is great, as is highway &...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

Living in upstate New York I wanted a tire that would be good in the snow. I purchased these tires last Wednesday, they were delivered the next day and I had them mounted on Saturday. Over the last three days I have driven through driving rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow mix, moderately deep snow and slick roads. Under all of these conditions the tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Though I absolutely love these tires on my VW Passat 4Motion wagon, they are completely different story on the Avalon. This is a large front drive high output V-6 sedan with a soft suspension. They handle just like the Michelin MVX4S that came on the car. Couldn't wait to get rid of the Michelins after 40,000 miles. Steering response with the Pure Contact is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Sense

I have driven on this tire in dry, wet, and snowy conditions with both empty and fully loaded vehicle conditions. This tire has exceeded my expectations for performance in all areas. I push my Neon fairly hard everywhere that I drive it and these tires have been great at inspiring confidence in turns, acceleration, and hard braking.The Kumho Sense is a great...  Read More

I just purchased these are instantly noticed the upgrade over my cars OEM tires. Fantastic upgrade in my opinion, though im still in the break-in period so another update will soon follow. however good price was a huge factor in picking this wheel along side the surveys and reviews of the wheels from others sites.   Read More

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

Purchased the Pilot A/S 3 91V-rated to replace ContiPro Contact SSR 91H run flats. I carry a spare in the trunk.Conti lasted about 25-30k and were gone. Run flats give you piece of mind but they were noisier than Pilot - I noticed it from the beginning I installed these on. Pilots are also provide a softer ride over small bumps and anomalies on a road; Conti...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

Great tires in both dry and wet conditions. Much much better than the OEM Bridgestone Potenza. This is my second set of Kumho tires on this car. The first set lasted over 40,000 miles. This one has 25,000 so far but I don't see it going to more than 28,000. That's been disappointing since I expected these to last close to 40,000 miles. I'd recommend these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Actually with a few miles on the car they are perfect. But my main concern is treadwear, after trying a set of sumitomo and kumho ectsa 4x, both last close 2 years(30 000 miles). I hope to go for 3 years with these DWS Next review in the summer 2015.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I really must be honest, I was never a fan of Kumho tires.....since I was not sure where our local tire sellers bought the brand from and especially the mileage was extremely poor. However, I decided to give the brand a chance, since Tire Rack and myself have such a wonderful relationship. I must really say.......I am impressed. Our Roads in Antigua &...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 ZP

Great tires! There is slight tire noise at low speeds but dry and wet traction is very good. Snow and ice traction is excellent compared to brand new Kumho 4X I had on the car last winter that made driving scary even on just wet roads. Also getting a much more comfortable ride compared to the Kumho. I use my Mini as my daily beater and im glad I found tires...  Read More

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

Outstanding! I had Bridgestone's and Kumho's installed on this 15 year old car before. But after reading the reviews on this tires, I decided to trust the public. Man was it on the money!Before buying these Pirellis I just had the rear struts replaced. I didn't wanna write a review until I tried it in the snow around Chicago. I'm absolutely satisfied, happy...  Read More
