Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

We live outside of Boston's 95 circle so we get our share of icy, snowy untreated roads. After taking out a fence, mailbox & fender, my sister in law traded the protégé in for an AWD CR-V. Wife liked it so much she got one exactly like it, & I immediately put DM-V1s on the wife's (my) investment. Sister in law waited awhile till she almost kissed the rear of...  Read More

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

After Driving with these for 2 years I love this tire they are the smoothest most responsive all-seasons I've ever owned. My favorite part about them is the way they take the highway, when I switch from my winter set, it does not feel like the same vehicle. Let me say however, they need to get removed when the snow falls. Living in Massachusetts, these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

Just a little background on me to understand my subjectivity. I am an aggressive driver and a track rat. I try to go to the track at least 2 times a month (or as my budget can afford). I push my car 9-10 tenths consistently. Yes, I am hard on tires... OK, so overall this is an great tire. As a street tire I would say that it is pretty good. Good traction in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

Bought set of Michelin Defender LTX MS this time. Prior tire purchases for our Tahoe include Michelin Latitude Tour, and Goodyear Fortera Silent Armor. Smooth and quiet being most important quality for our cars. I can say that all three of these tire models perform very similar, all very smooth and quiet. I probably would have bought second set of Fortera...  Read More

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

Replaced the Dunlop tires that came on the car. I was quiet surprised by both the comfort and performance of these Pilot A/S 3+ tires. I haven't put many miles on them yet but expect to enjoy these tires for many miles to come. I recommend these tires for anyone looking for performance tires with some snow traction.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I up grated my wheels from stock 16 wheels to 17 '04 STI BBS wheels. I was driving on Continental DWS. They were great tires and I have bumped them as my reserve winter tire, not much snow in Alabama but just in case. I have yet to test the tires in the wet as it has not rained thus NA atm. Will update when I get the opportunity. I was debating between these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I spent several weeks researching tires. This 9-3 came with ContiSportContacts which were also the OE tire. I wanted to upgrade to an Ultra High Performance All Season from those Grand Touring OE boots.Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 were my first choice due to their reviews/reputation. However, Michelin was the only tire company without a rebate right now....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

These Michelins were OEM when we bought the car new. We now have 62000+ miles on them with over 50% of original tread remaining. At about 55,000 miles I began to hear some growling coming from the right front and thought it might be the wheel bearing pack. Before changing out the bearing pack I rotated the tires ahead of schedule and the noise moved to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I switched over to this tire from All-season Goodyear LS2 tires, and the difference is night and day. These tires are very responsive and have tons of grip, dry and wet. When starting from 0, its difficult and requires a lot of rough throttle application to get the tires to slip, and once you consider that my car is FWD and therefore naturally doesn't have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These tires replaced the stock Potenza S001 Run-flats that came with my 2015 335i from the factory. To be honest, the performance difference between these tires and the stock run-flats is nominal. I was a little disappointed because I expected a huge change from all the reviews I read. Don't get me wrong, the Michelin tires are better, but only just. Maybe I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

Drove 200 miles each way to NJMP for a 2 day HPDE. Running stock pressure on stock BBS wheels. These tires are a big improvement in terms of overall grip compared to my Michelin Pilot Super Sports that were on the car prior. Performed very similar to the Dunlop Star Spec's but communicates a little less before it lets go (the squealing is a little muted)....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I usually buy Michelin tires, but this is my first set of Continentals. So far I have found these tires meet all of my criteria. Extremely good handling in both wet and dry conditions. They are very quiet. Very good braking performance. Competitively priced. Does it sound I'm happy with this choice - yes I am! I will update the review, including wear factors...  Read More

Best All-Season Tires for Mazda's Mazda6

The Mazda6 is Mazda's mid-size car entry offered since 2002. The third-generation hit the streets for model year 2014 as a four-door sedan with options of either manual or automatic transmission. Without a six-cylinder engine option, some may suggest it loses appeal to some people. However, fuel economy numbers in the high 30s will grab your attention. The...  Read More

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

I'm impressed with the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 even though I have only driven less than 500 miles. I agonized over the performance/cost trade-off with my previous replacement tire favorite, the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. The entire experience with Tire Rack was impressive - the customer service and the efficient transaction handling - plus setup for local...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Been riding these on my focus for about 6 months. Treadwear had been unbelievable for an aggressive summer tire such as this. These are superior to the stock eagle f1 tires in almost every way..almost. We get a lot of flash flooding and torrential rain here in Texas, and these pilot ss' tend to hydroplane on the highway pretty severely, my eagle f1s were...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I do drive city mostly due to my retirement and age--83, but the city street corners are taken well within the handling ability of the R32 and my enjoyment level of owning the best sports car I have ever driven. Local on and off ramps of our interconnecting interstate roads are vigorously attacked and enjoyed with the RE11s-no loss in confidence, whether wet...  Read More

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

At 16.500 miles it was time to replace the run-flat Dunlap tires. I really liked these tires except they didn't last long. I have switched to regular tires and bought an air pump, green slime and tire repair kit. I have not had a flat in 50 years and hope my luck continues. The only problem with these tires is the noise. They are very loud with the top down....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Thanks to everyone who wrote a review of this tire. As a result of the reviews, I purchased this tire about two months ago. I immediately could feel it grip the road and corner more precisely than the stock tires which came with the car--Bridgestone Turangas. The tires are amazingly quiet especially on concrete freeway surfaces where road noise can be very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I love these tire but I have a cupping issue on the rears only. I have different sizes front and back so rotating is not an option. That being said the car is not drive a lot during the summer and almost never in the winter ( I have snow tires for winter driving). The alignment is almost perfect so I am not yet convinced about wear.   Read More
