Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

Got these on a set of c1m rims for my miata to replace my toyo all seasons on the stock 16's. Tire is very quiet and traction seems to be fine for daily duty. Sheds water well and seems to resist hydroplaning too. No complaints so far.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival

Killer for autocross, immediate improvement in feel, grip and lap times. Also a better street tire than the OEM Bridgestone it replaced on daily-driven 2010 Miata. Mileage too low to yet comment on tread life, but appears to be wearing normally.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII

I picked these up from Tirerack knowing I wanted an extreme summer tire. I had them delivered with a set of silver TRM C1M 15x7 30 offset wheels. Both the wheels and tires look fantastic. While I have had limited opportunities to experience the grip, I fully expect them to perform beautifully. A 20 minute track session in the rain was actually enjoyable as I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII

I have these on my supercharged and coilover'd '94 Miata that is strictly a nice-weather car, thus why I can't rate wet characteristics. I have had Potenza RE750s and the set before buying the ZIIs were Potenza RE-11s. The RE-11s were way above the RE750s, and I wore the RE-11s clear down to the rears being completely smooth and looking like go-cart tires......  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

This is my 3rd set of tires on my 2007 Mazda Miata (51,500 miles). My MX-5 feels and responds better than it ever did. Drives better than when it was new. I love these tires. They have made driving hugely fun again. Cornering is great, acceleration is improved, ride comfort is much better (my wife even commented on this) and they are relatively quiet. Highly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

I bought these as a replacement for the used 1996 Miata, I bought on ebay in 2008(installed at 122,000 and currently 155,000 [2014] - expecting another 15,000 miles). Very happy, great in the wet and never caught in snow, but I don'yt drive it in snow deeper than 6 inches. I don't race in the rain, but I feel confortable doing 65 on the Turnpike. Going to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

I have these on my 2011 Miata, with a 6-speed manual and LSD. While their dry pavement traction is not quite as good as the Bridgestone summer tires that came with the car, these are probably the best all seasons I've ever had on a Miata (and I've been driving Miatas since 1996). I've previously used Bridgestone, Firestone, and Toyo all-seasons. My Miata is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

Right now , I only have the rear tires for my car , they've proven to be an excellent choice. I received them 3 weeks before Maryland had it's first snow. I also have a better understanding on why we're not to mix tires,. You see, I still have the OEM Pirelli's on the front and while driving in the snow I was making a left turn at an estimated 5mph , when I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

Needed to get some good all-season tires for my Miata. I was previously on the original tires (2004 LS) which were basically racing slicks. Had zero traction, and was petrified of driving in any snow. I needed something for the brutal Cleveland winters.Once the General AS03's were on my car, my new found fear of driving in the snow was gone. I drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11A

Have used RE11's for the past 4 years and the upgrade to the RE 11A's is amazing.They are a match made in heaven for my Miata and have brought handling and enjoyment to a new level. Single most significant upgrade to the car's performance in the past 21 years.   Read More

All 15 Sizes of BFGoodrich's g-Force Rival Now In Stock

After a strong initial release and promising first test, many of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival sizes seemed difficult to get our hands on. While we were able to receive many of the higher volume sizes quickly, some of the more specialized sizes remained out of stock. We are pleased to report that all sizes of the tire have now been received into stock and are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival

I bought these BFGoodrich Rival tires for use as Autocross only on an NB miata using 8 wheels. The 205/50R15 size has a slight stretch on this size wheel, making for a stiffer sidewall at lower pressures for better turn in response. I have a limited number of miles on the Rival since it is not driven at all on the street, but have competed in 6 full...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

There was no snow for the first month of the tire use, so when we got a few inches, I took the Miata to a parking lot to see how the tires would perform. Donuts, quick stops, quick acceleration were all tested. It's a rear wheel drive roadster so there was fishtailing, but the Miata does that with the forecast of snow. I was really impressed with the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ101

They are a predictable tire when throwing it around. The lateral grip isnt what Im used to, though it should last longer than my previous tires. I am certain I cant get over 1g of lateral grip on these liky my Azenis, but they are fun. They step out in a very predictable manner then pushed hard on the Miata.Just put them on my wifes Protege and they are a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

I've been very pleased with these tires and feel that they are a great value. I liked them so much that I also put them on my 99 Miata.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

I drive my MX-5 Miata LS Sport at 8/10 - 10/10 all the time, as it is my weekend toy. These tires are excellent all around, with catchable, progressive grip. Plus, they ride quietly and comfortably and wear like iron (so far). Wet traction is great, and I am driving around in 28F temps without appreciable lose of traction. But forget snow/ice.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

Swapped out BGF's Gforce sports for these. Potenza's MUCH smoother ride. Handles very well. My weekend at the Miatas at the Gap saw some 'spirited' drives on the Gap andsome other roads. No traction issues anywhere. At the auto-X last month, it rained. good lap times in the wet and no cones clipped or excessive slippage & no hydroplaning.   Read More

Lightweight, Strong and Good Looking: Enkei Racing Series PF01

Selecting wheels for a vehicle is subjective based upon one's taste and ultimately up to each individual customer. Here at Tire Rack, we offer many different brands to suit the various tastes of our customers. While I'm frequently asked, "What wheel would look best on my car?", I must admit it's a very difficult question to answer. Even though I've been...  Read More
