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

Very early review for a tire with less than a 1000 miles, so some evaluation catagories are not yet applicable, but my purpose writing this is twofold.First, the initial improvement in noise reduction, smoothness of ride and responsive handling over origional equipment Bridgestones on my small Lexus was immediate and stunning to say the least. This Cinturato...  Read More

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

I am very particular about my tires. Here is why and this is my story. I have driven many types of vehicles with many different makes of tires.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I bought these to replace the original Michelin MXV4 tires because the Michelins were completely worn out at 30K miles. Based on every review and advice I recieved from Tire Rack and other sources the Conti DWS should have been a great tire. I even had them on a previous 2005 Lexus and they were great on that car. They have outstanding handling and steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

This is my first set on winter tires and I have now driven these during two significant snow events in Wisconsin. The difference in traction, braking distance, and just the general sense of driving confidence they give you is nothing short of astonishing. Putting these on has made my car's ABS and VSC systems incredibly more effective - in the absence of...  Read More

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

I first purchased a set of these tires for my sons 2004 Oldsmobile Alero . I was very impressed with them immediately . I soon purchased a set for my 2007 Solara v6 sport. I now have over 20,000 miles on them and they are still impressive. If your looking for a quiet comfortable ride with very good tread wear these may be the tires for you. My driving style...  Read More

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

I bought these after researching ratings (love the color block quick comparison graphs) to maximize the luxury part of the older 1997 sport/luxury Lexus SC 300 which came with some half worn Blizzaks. I couldn't be happier, driving for maximum fuel economy, slowing early for expected stops, accelerating moderately, staying pretty much within posted speeds,...  Read More

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

Bridgestone Turanza EL 400 came stock on 2015 Lexus GS 350 F Sport. I knew the tire had an unusually stiff sidewall and was prone to flat spots because cars on the dealer's lot had flat spots when I test drove them. I expected to replace the Bridgestones come winter but the ride was just too harsh and I decided not to wait. These Bridestone tires are not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

Only 3500 miles so far. Replaced OE Michelin Lattitudes with 36k miles. Was worried about change from V rated to H rated. No problem. My 2011 Lexus RX 350 rides better and is quieter than when it was new. Love this tire, especially the very low noise. This is a quiet tire. Not sure yet how long they will last but they have a great warranty so no worries....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I live in New England, and have the Miata 2009 Grand Touring factory Michelin Pilot tires, great in dry, so..so in winter. After 28,000 (2.5 yrs) the tires had to be replaced, wore out too fast even when you rotate them...

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

These are the OEM tires on my 2009 MDX. Over the last 15 years I have had several sets of Goodyears, several sets of Bridgestones, one set of Pirellis and one other set of Michelins. These tires have performed the best of all of them. While these Michelins are not perfect, I would definitely consider buying them again if they were priced competitvely.These...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I have this tire on a Lexus 400h and drive weekly from the desert at 5,000 ft. to Lake Tahoe over a 9,000 ft. pass. They have been not only a great tire in rain and snow but also excellent in the sandy off road adventures I sometimes encounter in the desert. Excellent value.   Read More

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

My IS-350 has the staggered fitment: 225-40/18 and 255-40/18. I average 17K miles annually, mostly highway with aggressive city driving. I wanted summer tire performance with better wear and I hoped that the Pilot Sport A/S 3's would deliver.I bought the car used and the dealer installed Firestone Wide Ovals on the front and Fierce Instincts on the rear. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I had OEM Continental tires which worn out completely in the middle after about 30K miles. Then I researched from Tirerack.com and purchased these Conti DWS. What a difference!! My C300 is a sport model but it completely became a luxury model. So quite and soft, yet it handles really really well (always handled well before). Felt like a totally new car. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

This is one incredible winter tire. Since my RWD Lexus is very dangerous in winter, I decided to splurge on a set of winter tires. I based my decision to purchase these tires on Tirerack rating and reviews.My initial impressions of these winter tires is that they don't feel like winter tires. Noise is non-existant and whisper quite. Ride quality is...  Read More

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

I replaced the OEM tires (worn out at 25,000 mi) on my Lexus ES350 with these and couldn't be happier with them. I drive about 40,0000 miles a year almost all highway and these tires are perfect. Still not even close to wearing out at 50,000 miles!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Replaced Michelin Primacies that still had a lot of tread left, but wanted the peace of mind of new rubber for an extended road trip we had planned.My big complaint about these tires is that my gas mileage dropped 10-15% upon installation from what I was getting with the Primacies. Whereas I was getting 30-31 mpg on the highway before, I am now getting...  Read More
