Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is my second set of Continental Tires and this set is better than the OEM Continental Tires. In between I had a set of Michelin Primacy tires which I replaced unnecessarily as it turned out for another reason. I consider these to be nearly equal to the Primacys with the Primacy's having the edge in ride and tracking, almost like riding on rails.But here...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

My Pirelli p zero were about shot on the rears and ok on front. They were awfully sticky for everyday use and very noise. I read about the Michelin super sports so took the plunge. Ride quality, grip and noise are night and day from Pirellis in a positive way. If you were track only then Pirellis would probably be fine, but not a good road tire. My car will...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Champion Fuel Fighter (T-Speed Rated)

Bought these to replace BFG Touring TA with 3/32 tread remaining; tires were horribly loud and vibrated like crazy. Put most of the miles on commuting 170 miles each day. I only got these due to dealer giving me a great deal for being a loyal customer. Considered Michelins, but they were more than double what I paid, and reviews were not that positive. Even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I've owned the tires for one month and 1500 miles. After reading the other reviews, I agree with the superb handling and the quiet ride. I really like these tires over the stock Michelin's that came with my car. The handling really improved and the tires were much quieter. The jury is out on treadwear looking at other reviews and I will be updating this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Mounted these on my 2008 Infiniti FX35 AWD a couple weeks back now and am genuinely surprised by the difference in ride. I'm a nail magnet and have lost 7 tires in 8 years. I've gone through several brands and most recently had Hankooks. I thought those were good tires until I used these Michelin's. The ride now is 100% smoother with better grip and I feel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

When my OEM tires contiseals lasted about 50K, so I started to look for a good set of tires that would fit my car. First replacement I bought from local Costco Michelins pilot sport A/S3 as I (was) a big fan of Michelin brand. I drove on them about 300 miles and what I noticed that the were very noisy but with good handling response tires, so I took them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

This is the second set I have put on my BMW. These tires are great! Very happy with the purchase. I do both highway and city type of driving in this particular car (my daily driver) and I have been very pleased with they way they have performed and will buy them again. My only issue is that after they get about half worn, they get rather noisy! In my BMW it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Was surprised how much these held up for so long. Went through 5-6 track days with these on and eventually heat cycled through them, but I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a great summer daily driver and occasional track/autocross. These were pretty responsive to steering inputs and held well during hard cornering. In the wet, they were worked pretty...  Read More

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

I'm not often compelled to write positive reviews, I tend towards writing negative reviews to assist others from making the same mistakes I have. In this case, this tire is not a mistake. I am coming from OEM Goodyear LS2 ROF (Run on Flat) tires in 245/45 19 size to the AS/3 + in the same size and the difference is nothing short of transformative.Most...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

The tires have only been on the car for about 1,000 miles, so there is not too much to report. They ride and handle well. Tire is quiet at any speed. Have not experienced any snow, so I cannot comment on such. Don't feel like I can comment on how they are wearing as they are brand new. Tire looks great on the car.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These tires 100% live up to their reputation. They perform beyond well for a spirited street car. Road holding and feedback is fantastic, the ONLY drop from the horrible RTF's is a slight drop in steering response but that's as to be expected. The improvement in ride quality even for these ultra thin sidewall tires from the RFT's is staggering. It was beyond...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring

A friend of mine who happens to love Goodyear tires, recommended these Assurance ComforTred Touring tires to me. What a fantastic decision and after having driven approximately 10k miles on them I can say without hesitation, these Goodyears are head and shoulders better than the Michelins that came on my car. They are quieter and smoother, braking and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

By virtue of my car being an AWD slightly-high hatchback, it's tough to critique certain things like the tires' contribution to steering response. Nonetheless, I'm quite happy with these tires. I only needed to replace my rears, but for the cost of just those two tires in the OEM Pirelli run-flat model, I was able to afford a full staggered set of the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I thought the stock Pirelli's that came with the car were a pretty good fit, but these Michelin Super Sports raise the bar dramatically. I track my car regularly in the summer and am amazed that lap after lap these tires perform as good on the 10th lap as they do after the 2nd warm-up lap. Other tires I have tried tend to loose grip after the 5th or 6th lap...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Use these tires for both street, highway and track days. Very responsive feel. Great handling. Excellent road feedback. Best all around performance tire I have installed. I have installed previously on other performance car and they are definitely an improvement of other performance tires I have used.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I mostly plonk around the local twisties and highway with my 355, but a recent ~90 mile introductory track day at the nearby road course really put these babies front-and-center as incredible performance tires. A two mile ring with 9 total turns, including a sequence of diabolical hairpins, challenged me like I've never been challenged as an amateur sport...  Read More

Best All-Season Audi S4 Tires

The Audi S4 is the high-performance model of the A4 sedan. First seen in 1991 (originally based on the 100), the S4 has matured over the years into a world-class luxury, performance car. The most current model made its debut in 2009 with a face lift as recently as 2012. The Premium Plus trim level sports a tire size of 245/40R18, however you should always...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

My car came with new Michelin Tires from the factory. They were HORRIBLE during the winter. Replaced with Goodyear Eagle GT Tires, and experienced much improvement. Tried Pirreli Winter Sotto Zero 3 Tires, and never knew tires could have that much of a dramatic, positive affect. The Pirelli Tires provided a dramatic improvement in all areas, in all seasons....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Have had two sets of Pilot Super Sports on my E90 and have been very pleased. The dry grip is tremendous, the wet grip is very good, and they even perform reasonably well when it gets cold (but no snow). I have a dedicated set of winter tires so these are on the car from April to November. I've gotten three solid summers out of them and they still have a...  Read More
