Best All-Season Tires for Late-Model BMW 3 Series

Model year 2012 saw BMW introduce the F30 3 Series. The major change was this was the first time the entire lineup used turbo charged engines. While the array of configurations is expansive, including four door, station wagon, hatchbacks, as well as numerous trim level options (this blog focuses on the standard four-door sedan). This car sports 225/50R17...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Fantastic handing going around corners and taking circular exit ramps. The ride seems quite comfortable vs my snow tires. Gas mileage has been good too.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

The original tires on my 2008 BMW-X3 with M-sport suspension were Michelin Pilot HX MxM4. I have been driving the car for the past 5 years and hated every minute of its ride. Not only the smallest bumps but also the wave on the road used to transfer to my body. It was very annoying. I preferred the ride of my Z4 with sport package to this car! I recently...  Read More

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

Great tire life. These tires have another 10 K in them, at least. Quiet smooth comfortable ride. Very stable on dry and wet/snow road. Recommended.   Read More

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

Tires ride smooth and quiet when it's dry and warm. This is one of the best riding, longest lasting tires I have drove on the last 10 years. During the rain, the car easily hydroplanes across 1/2 a lane in med/heavy rain. Passing a semi becomes dangerous, and more than once I have had used calculated maneuvers to actually pass.In light snow the traction is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

An excellent tire so far since I have only 1,000 miles on the tire, but so far in summer driving they are just excellent. So far it is a very large step up from the tires that came as orginial equipment. The real test will be this winter since I live in MN and we get our share of very bad blizzards including snow dumps of 24 inches which can cause drifting...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

So far, these tires have been outstanding. We've not had any snow since I've had them but they are great in the rain and the dry. Quiet too.   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 Michelin Primacy MXV4

Our new Odyssey Elite purchased in January 2015 came with these tires. During both winters (end of 2015, 2015/16) these tires were removed and replaced with snow tires. So there are 15,000 miles on these tires roughly. One pair is down to 4/32 inch and the other pair is at 7/32 inch. We are now getting serious vibration at highway speeds, indicating the...  Read More

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

Had these BFG KO 2 on for just over 20k miles. I have been keeping them rotated and balanced per schedule and I am very happy with these tires. I really like the way these tires look on the Suburban also. I have not had the chance to drive in deep snow, being in the south, but dry, wet, dirt, mud, gravel, grass, etc these tires are outstanding. Tread wear...  Read More

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

Long time listener, first time caller. I've used tire rack to support my tire purchasing decisions and as a way to promote vehicle safety to family and colleagues for years.When it came time to replace the OE tires (Dunlop Sport SP 01 A/S) on my daily driver, I did a considerable amount of research including talking with the experts here at TR. I enjoy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Not cheap; but appears to be an excellent value for the money. Ride is quiet and really smooth. Less noise than I experienced on the LTX M/S and LTX M/S2 that I put on my '03 Expedition. These are on my daughter's'06 Pacifica, which is a much lighter vehicle. It's really too early to judge; but treadwear is not noticeable after 5K miles. Wet and Dry Handling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

After about 400 miles I absolutely love these tires. It's like I'm glued to the road compared to the OEM Michelin's I had (different model). I recently got to use these in significant rain and I couldn't even tell that the roads were wet and puddled. I haven't been on snow yet so I left those N/A. Put these on your consideration list, then choose them!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S

Have ran 90,000 miles on the Michelin ltx ms tires with absolutely no problems. Have driven in all conditions; highway, city, mountains and rough terrain and have managed all situations with 100% dependability and reliability. These tires have always run smooth and quiet with no vibrations or wear problems. Can get 95k out of them before I replace them with...  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 Michelin Defender LTX M/S

Michelin is Excellence!!! There is no better on road tire unless you live in Snow Country the majority of the year!!!Original Equipment was Continentals. They are a B + Tire with 16 +/- MPH on my truck. Then I went for a Larger Tire Size, Toya Open Country (35 Inch Tire) 14 +/- MPH. This Tire is a good off road tire. Highway performance, rain and snow were C...  Read More

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

Used roughly 90% on logging and very rough roads and in 4x4 drive. These tires were my 3rd set. Never got blown by a rock. They were rotated regularly every 10,000 km (~6,400 Mi). Tear and wear very evenly. They are OK on muddy roads at relatively low speeds, but are excellent on gravel roads. Very quiet on hwy and handling wet roads very good. I've never...  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
