Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

Adding my review mainly because I have read so many bad reviews for these tires on wet surfaces. I have enjoyed EXCELLENT traction in extreme Florida rain. I feel very confident traveling in a pack at a moderate rate of speed in very wet conditions and with almost as much confidence as I do when traveling in the wet at speed in my 2007 Tahoe equipped with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Great all around performer. Smooth, quiet ride, nice stiff sidewalls makes my truck ride all around much better. Stock Dunlops were a joke in comparison. Great in winter conditions. Snow flake rating and new compound deffinately is no lye. Alberta winter conditions are no problem for this tire so far.Brand new tire so I can't comment on wear yet. Overall...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have had these tires on my car for only 1,000 miles but living in Vermont we have had significant snow, slush, ice and rain for the past month and the tires on the S80 AWD have performed perfectly. Simply put, they perform great with this particular car. On long trips to southern New England on drive payment the tires are admirably quiet, particularly for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Love these tires! They ride like a dream; comfort and performance, such an improvement over the OE tires. Great in the rain as well. These Michelin Premiers are the best set I've ever driven, very impressed. I would consider these the Gold standard to put on your vehicle...   Read More

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

Purchased the Pilot A/S 3 91V-rated to replace ContiPro Contact SSR 91H run flats. I carry a spare in the trunk.Conti lasted about 25-30k and were gone. Run flats give you piece of mind but they were noisier than Pilot - I noticed it from the beginning I installed these on. Pilots are also provide a softer ride over small bumps and anomalies on a road; Conti...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

Very pleased with the performance of these tires - far superior than the OEM Goodyear Infinity that only lasted 41,000 miles and got up to 48mpg at best with fair performance. With the Michelins at first got around 46-47 mpg, then as they wore in got closer to 50 mpg, with 52 being the best in ideal circumstances (summer, no A/C, etc). Ride is extremely...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA2 ZP

Still only halfway through the first winter with these tires, although it has been a typical Chicago winter with ice and snow, and they are performing well.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

One of the best performance tires available and I wouldnt hesitate to take these onto a wet race course as the Wet traction is even more amazing to me than the dry traction. For the performance capability of the tire, The treadwear is fantastic and I fully expect to get 30,000 miles out of a set of tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

Fun Tires!! I was able to drive in 4- 5 inches of snow and the traction is just amazing. It's hard to brake the tires loose. I had to find a empty parking lot and turn off traction control. The tires also feel great on the dry or wet roads. If your looking for a great high performance snow winter tire I would strongly recommend. Let it snow!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I have had 4 sets of Michelin PS2s with average life of 11,000 miles and very good performance both wet and dry. The new Pilot Super Sports have far exceeded this with both mileage and performance. I abuse my tires as much as is legally possible. I cannot say enough good about these tires. I currently have 12,000 miles on these and am far from the wear...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Very impressive. I've had these, Firestone Winterforce, and Blizzak WS-80's. The overriding plus is great slush and ice traction, coupled with a quiet highway road. It's hard to rate absolute performance vs. the WS-80's, since these are on the FWD Focus while my WS-80's are on the beastly (in the snow) AWD Subaru. But in braking and cornering, and general...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

GREAT GREAT GREAT. Bought these tires literally yesterday. My only criteria was wet traction. Would have bought the Michelins to replace the Michelins I had because I had zero complaints about them (not sure about the model, bought them at Costco 5 years ago). But for 35 bucks less a tire for the second rated wet traction, I figured no big deal. Had to drive...  Read More
