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

Tire Pressure Monitor Systems

Recently, there's been a push for consumers to better understand their vehicles both for safety and efficiency. We now have oil life monitors, tire rotation reminders, monitors that will tell us if we have a light bulb out and since the mandate was introduced in 2007 by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Tire Pressure Monitor Systems...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Hot Springs Village, AR. Curvy country roads. Lots of fun even in an SUV. Lexus RX-350 AWD. Got them in Feb 14. Saw a little light snow, had no problems. Light and heavy rain was also no problem. These tires are great. They go where you point them. They hold the road well. Are very quiet. Gives a good stable feeling. I used to be a Michelin man, but no more....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I purchased a staggered set for my RWD Lexus GS F Sport to replace the OEM Bridgestone Potenzas. After only 15k miles, the Potenzas still had plenty of tread, but were getting noisy between 35-50mph. In just a couple days of driving on these Super Sports, my initial impressions are very good. Even though they are the same size, the Michelins are meatier and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Great tire. Just bought 4 to replace the OEM Michelins that came on my 2012 Lexus RX350 AWD. The Michelins performed well and wore well, but I didn't want to pay the premium, and I wanted a V-rated tire, I took a chance on the Pirelli Plus tires based on Tire Rack's customer reviews. After 1,000 miles of city and highway driving, I could not be happier....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Replaced a set of Yokohama AVS. I have noticed improved braking, ride, wet traction, and noise levels....truly improved the overall handling of an already excellent handling old car. I enjoyed the same kind of improvements when I installed the same tires in my 2001 Lexus IS300. I highly recommend These tires. I will try them on my 2009 Lexus RX350 next.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Wow! Never had a better tire. Had Bridgestone Pole Positions, Dunlop SP5000s, Falken Ziex, etc. - all well-rated by Consumer Reports and well-regarded by enthusiasts. Also have a Lexus LS400 and can't wait for its Bridgestones to wear out so I can replace them with these. Superb ride, quiet, handling. Notice instantly. Worth every penny.   Read More

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

I am a licensed mechanic and car dealer for over 25 years and now an RV dealer and am very impressed with this tire. My 2012 Camry Hybrid XLE came with Bridgestones and barely got 31000 miles before wear bars showed. I researched all tires available with low rolling resistance and the Yokohama was rated 1st above all the others and ended up being the lease...  Read More

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
