Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

OE summer tire on my Performance Pkg '15 Mustang GT 6sp. I've tried to find opportunities/conditions to justify Ford's selection of this tire, but after almost a year in a variety of temperatures and weather conditions I'm really looking forward to replacing the tires, even with plenty of tread left. This tire loses grip under too many conditions, even when...  Read More

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

Just put a set these on my Infiniti G-37xS last week. Tire Rack shipped them to my Infiniti dealer who did the install. They balanced up beautifully without much weight. Just have about 250 miles on them so far and just tried them in the snow tonight. Pleasantly surprised at how well they did, considering these are not snows, but all-seasons. In terms of wet...  Read More

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

So I'm curious if other owners experience what I just did on these tires. Overall, I love the PS A/S 3's. They have great ride, feel and control. Problem is, I only got 11,000 miles on the rears as the center treads wore down to 2mm tread depth remaining.Since I do not carry a spare, and run-flats are like driving plywood tires, I elected to replace these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

For original equipment the Latitudes have been terrific. 89k miles and still tread is 6/32nds (2/32nds is replacement time)....probably 100k + miles for these tires.......wow. Good performance on dry and wet pavement....just average in snow. Overall...I like 'em a lot.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I've just finished my second winter season with these tires and I couldn't be happier. I bought these because the winter before, I had driven on all season tires and had a lot of trouble getting up the hill going out of my neighborhood - one day I couldn't make it up the hill and had to stay home from work. It wasn't any fun driving down the major roads,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I've done a lot of work on my car - engine now produces 380 hp, performance suspension, Brembo brakes, sport wheels, so I needed high performance tires to go with it. At the same time, I didn't want tires that would wear too fast, so ultra performance and race tires were out. The Pilot Sports seem to fit the bill.Cornering is excellent and very easily...  Read More

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

I bought a set of the Michelin Pilot A/S 3+ V rated tires to replace asset of A/S 3 Y rated tires. As the older tires wore they started to tramline horribly - to the point that they were scary to drive on bad freeways. I was concerned about dropping from ultra high performance (Y) to high performance (V). So far so good. I drove from Seattle to Portland in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Replaced the OEM installed Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires with only 13,000 miles on the clock and installed the new Michelin Pilot 4S tires. I've had prior experience with some Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires, as well as two sets of Michelin PSS tires on different cars, and Michelin knocked it out of the park again.Summary = Superb traction and handling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Initial Review, I will be reporting in 10 to 15k increments I hope. I just installed these coming from the Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring and its a night and day difference for the better.In comparison the Coopers get a 10 for noise because they are scary quiet. But they go away fast, don't do as well in the wet as claimed, are a bit choppy on imperfections, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Installing these tires immediately improved everything I liked about my car. Replacing the original equipment Michelin Primacy MXM4 ZP runflats with the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 dramatically improved the ride and noise - no more crashing over bumps that jarred me and scared my passengers. Regular road noise went way down and the tramlining went...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These are the best tires I have owned in 45 years in all categories. My research was primarily on tire racks site. My s2000 handles incredibly now and much much better than the previous set of bf Goodrich tires. The ride is smooth and somewhat luxurious considering my suspension and the known performance capabilities of this sports car. The rubber is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I spend 40-50 days per winter snow skiing so snow tires are a necessity. The Xi3 exceeded all expectations in all conditions. I drove in slush, packed snow, deep, fresh snow, ice, and wet conditions on mountain roads and over highway passes in Western Washington, BC, Oregon, and the Sierras in California and found traction during straight-line driving and...  Read More

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

My car has staggered tires so I cannot rotate them like I would like to for that optimal mileage. But so far with a little over 5,000 miles on them I am quite impressed with the overall tire performance. I have driven in the snow, ice and a lot of rain living in the Northwest. I was debating getting snow tires this year vs. the all season. I was driving on...  Read More

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

I went back-n-forth for weeks trying to decide about which tire to buy. I finally chose to splurge for the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ over the Continental Extreme Contact DWS 06. Yes, the Michelin tires are a bit pricey, but they are definitely well worth the invest. The ride, performance, and handling are superb. I would absolutely purchase these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I have a 2013 Infiniti G37 S Sedan, I put on some Nissan GT-R 20 front wheels at all 4 corners. I have owned all sorts of tires in my lifetime, some very good high performance tires. These Michelin Pilot Sport 4S's have to be right up there in easily the top 5, if not indeed the best. I only reserve judgment based on only having these tires about 3 weeks...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

Call me crazy, however, these are one of the best performing tires I have ever owned. I run the Michelin pilot sports on both my 2008 VW Jetta Wolfsburg 2.0T FSI, DSG w/K04 S3 Turbocharger upgrade, and supercharged 1994 Classic NA Mazda Miata as summer tires and these on the Jetta for the winter. The Michelin Pilot Super Sports are at the top of their...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

These tires are on our 07 MB GL450. I was torn between another value tire and a good deal on the Continentals OEM. The Conti's wore out like in 15000 miles. I decided not to go with a value tire as they have not performed well, nor lasted well, nor have any decent ride quality in this vehicle. (Last value tire was a set of Hankooks) These have an 80k mileage...  Read More

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

Spent a weekend in Sacramento area from SF Bay Area this weekend. Had mix of crazy weather over weekend - sunny & dry, cold and slightly icy, hard pouring rain and a bit of hail. Tires performed extremely well over dry asphalt - quiet, sticky, crisp and responsive. Was expecting it to deteriorate in rain, hail and wet pavement, but didn't skip a beat. Not a...  Read More

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

I now know how the other half live! What an incredible difference. I bought these to replace the OEM equipped Goodyear Eagles, which were acceptable in most driving conditions, but brutal in winter. I started to wonder if it was the car. Nope, definitely the tires! It is not surprising to roll off the driveway and onto a snow covered road in our development...  Read More
