Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Thanks other reviewers - I bought these tires to replace OEM Bridgestone RFTs based entirely on the many positive reviews by others. Now, this was a bit of a risk because, while enthusiasm for these tires appeared, at the time, to be universal, only a fraction of the reviews seemed to speak to me personally. I live in Southern California where, from time to...  Read More

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

After 1000 miles, compared to the stock Michelin Primacy HP Tires, these do have more grip (Example: Difficult to make the traction control turn on, quieter, and have better driver confidence. After 1000 miles, I notice that my MPG has dropped by full MPGs. On the Primacy HPs I'd average 25.32 MPG, on these I average 23.12 MPG. 2 MPG Difference for the added...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

This is the 2nd set that I have purchased for my truck. I have to say that these have been the best set of tires I have ever had on any car or truck I have owned. The tread life is incredible, I rarely need to use 4WD when we get snow, when I go camping in the mountains we simply load up everything and head on up without any worries, and I have even taken it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

The OEM Tires that came with the car only lasted about 38,000 miles (we use snow tires in the past two winters) Used to buy Mich. tires but found them to be too expensive. I have been with the same tire dealer for 20 years and he strongly reccomended them, I talked to his wife and she has these on her Lexis and loves them. I took a chance as they were out of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Best tires I've ever owned and I've had a wide variety of performance tires on various cars from Nitto, Conti's, Bridgestone's, Pirelli's, and Dunlop's. These tires replaced the stock Bridgestone tires which were average at best. I put these tires on the 370Z 3 days prior to driving to Tail of the Dragon and other various roads in the Smokey Mountains. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I just finished my first season on the Michelin X-ICE3's, in West Michigan, and was very pleased. 2015/16 was a mild winter for us, but still plenty of opportunities to try out the grip of these tires in snow, slush, and ice. I drive my manual-transmission rear-wheel-drive Chevy SS sedan in a spirited manner from time to time when conditions allow, but I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

This is my 2nd set of tires on my Honda Accord, I had the Mich MXM4 which went 55k, and I could've gone longer so this car is great on tires. I was thinking that these tires should last twice as long and they have I have not reached what appears to be 50% tread yet. They are rated high for treadwear and I think that I will easily get the tread wear out of...  Read More

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

Had the previous version of this tire the A/S 3. Bought it again because I don't think there is a better tire on the market. For all the nay-sayers about the snow traction...c'mon. This is an ultra high performance all season tire......if you're running them n the snow what do you expect?? I had zero issues with the previous version on the days it snowed in...  Read More

Michelin Defender LTX or Michelin LTX Premier: Which is Right for You?

Michelin recently introduced two new tire lines, the Premier LTX and Defender LTX M/S. Both tires are available in some of the same sizes, so a common question is, "Which one is the better choice?" For starters, these are both great tires and we expect many years of rave reviews to come. The Premier LTX features Expanding Rain Grooves and Emerging Grooves...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Great tires! I have these on my car and my daughter also has them on a 2012 Corolla. We each love the handling characteristics. My wife has Michelin AS on her Camry. Both the PureContact and AS are truly excellent tires. To me, the Continetals give better road feel while the Michelins are a bit quieter. The choice between the two is a more matter of personal...  Read More

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

Replaced OEM Dunlop at 25K miles with Ecopia due to bad ride comfort and noise level.Switched to H-rated Ecopia and immediately noticed better and softer ride on bumpy road. Road noise has been significantly reduced as I can listen to radio with volume level 2 even at 70 MPH on highway. I dislike Lexus stiff suspension on RX since I bought the car new. The...  Read More

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

I work in the automotive industry and test drive a lot of vehicles. Originally I had the michelin atx tires on it in E load range. I worked for bridgestone at the time and had a GREAT deal on them. I bought them and have loved them. I have a farm in east Texas that has some rock in it but mostly sandy soil and clay with slightly rolling hills. I also have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

I have never used a dedicated snow tire until now. I was actually looking forward to a year of heavy snow in northern Wisconsin to really test these tires, but unfortunately el nino made for only a couple decent snowfalls. I am overall very impressed by these tires. The price was outstanding compared to other snow tires and they delivered great traction. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

My car came with Continental ContiContactPro SSR Runflats. The ride was so uncomfortable and you could feel every little tiny bump on the road. The worst part is I drove over a pot hole and blew the sidewall out...so much for run-flats because I couldn't go more than 5 miles. Took it to the dealership, luckily I had tire and wheel warranty to cover the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I had used studded snows on the wifes Prius, but did not want the extra noise that they made on my car. I use this car 2 to 4 days a week on a nearly 150 mile parts delivery route. I was shocked at how well they do in bad weather. They are NOT as good as studded snows, but better than any snows I have ever had...almost as good as studded, but without the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

The tires that came on my 2012 Ford Focus were so bad in snow, that my wife was afraid to drive car. We live in Michigan's UP, and my wife drove 45 miles to work all year round. She though the car was the problem. I had a hard time making it out of over drive way when it was snow covered. I switched to Michelin Premier A/S tires, it was almost like putting...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

About 5000 miles into this set of tires and I am VERY impressed. I'm an aggressive driver, always pushing my vehicle to the limits of what it can handle while remaining safe...well...safe when other cars are around, when I'm on my lonesome on a road all bets are off. The Michelin's I had on this car before I switched to the BFG's couldn't hold the rear to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

OEM tires. Bought the car with 6K on it. In the 4000 miles we've put on it, they have been barely acceptable going on road trips. Somewhat harsh ride, VERY LOUD on certain types of pavement, especially on concrete. Handling was acceptable. The real problems appeared the first time it rained. These tires are HORRIBLE in the rain. I was going 10-20 miles an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

About 3 years ago I ordered new 15 inch wheels and tires here on Tire Rack due to limited stock tire choices. The Michelin Defenders were excellent, but after 70,000 miles, I decided to get new tires for up coming the winter. Since the Fit has a pretty hard ride, I was looking for a comfortable tire with good wear ratings. I love the old Altimax tires on my...  Read More
