Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I run a dedicated winter tire on this car, so deep snow rating is not applicable. These tires replaced a set of Bridgestone Potenzas, And I was impressed enough with the performance to install a set on my 1985 Porsche 944. They will also be the next set of tires on my 2009 Lexus RX350. Tread wear has been FANTASTIC. After 15,000 miles D W ans S wear...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

The Lexus CT200h is the Lexus version of the Toyota Prius. The Prius has been noted as being terrible in the snow. I was concerned, but bought the car anyway, figuring that snow tires would make a difference. They have made a HUGE difference. The car has a continuously variable transmission CVT, and I don't know how that relates to Traction Control. But I...  Read More

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

Previous tire is continental DWS. This tire is much better in terms of road feeling, response to steering, road noise, ride comfort, and light snow traction. It is especially good for people who enjoys driving (sport car).I was planning to put a Michelin primacy MXM on my car. After putting a set of Pirelli tire (not p7) to my Lexus RX350 I decided to put...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

I bought these to replace Bridgestone Turenza that were not worn out but were noisy and did not feel safe in all conditions. The Michelin MXM4's are quiet but allow the feel of the road to come through in a positive way. They are a very comfortable tire and just right for cruising in the Lexus.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN S.4.

Ordered for Lexus several years ago and have been happily surprised with minimal wear. Tires still look new. Excellent grip and very comfortable. Gave us the best ride we ever had on our LS 400. Handles very well, good turn in and really responsive. Rotated and balanced normally. At higher speeds we were surprised the tire was silent. Really feels secure dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Car came with Dunlop tires. I cannot believe Lexus put those tires on this car. I got rid of them at 25K. I have a 2000 LX 470 and have always been happy with the LTX M/S. These tires are even better. There is nothing bad about this tire. Bought at Tire Rack. Had dealer mount 'em. Better everything: handling, ride, traction and even gas mileage. I hunt, so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

I have these tire on both my Toyota 4Runner and on my Lexus GX here in Denver.Quite and comfortable on trips to the Colorado mountains and great in snow and on off-road trails, including muddy ones.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Just installed these yesterday so this is an initial review. I'm recently retired from the tire and auto service business so you can bet I'm pretty picky about tires. These Primacy MXM4's replaced a set of HX MXM4's that had given good service. I found a great installer through Tire Rack that had a Hunter road force balancer and a clean, modern shop. The new...  Read More

Michelin Pilot Super Sport Still Number One

Having been on the market for over a year-and-a-half, the Michelin Pilot Super Sport still reigns supreme as the highest-rated tire in the Max Performance Summer category. While certain tires may occasionally hold the top spot for a few months, it's quite a rare feat to see such prolonged dominance.  Frankly, I'm not surprised as this tire was a favorite...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

First, I put these tires on my wife's 2004 Lexus RX330 and my daughter's 2008 Honda Civic. I tested these tires on both cars for months.

Yesterday we had a snow storm, the tires never broke...  Read More
