Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Best all season tire I have ever had. After 45,414 miles I am nearly at the wear bars and on my way to buy another set of the same tires 205/55R16. I run at 38 psi to get even tire wear (at the Lexus recommended 32 psi tire edges wear too quickly). When new they grip ice covered roads as good as Continental Conti Extreme Contact tires (excellently) and this...  Read More

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

On my 2015 GTI this tire has performed very well in dry and wet conditions. Steering responsiveness and handling are excellent. They are a little noisy and the ride is firm but this is a small price for the fun I have had with these on winding mountain roads. However, while I wasn't expecting snow tires I wanted at least acceptable traction in light snow....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Typical of a Michelin tire, low noise with long life. I run these year round rather than swapping tires for the warmer months. Overall they hold well but you can feel a bit of looseness when cornering hard in wet weather. Currently have about 30k on them and they are at about 5-6/32 so just enough to mostly make it through another winter. These do have to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D DSST RunOnFlat

Superb winter tire, simply fantastic. I'm using it on fairly powerful RWD car, tons of snow in the area every year. Never skipped or postponed a trip, zero issues finding grip no matter the conditions or the temperature out there. It's pricey, and it wears somewhat fast, for most people it's probably good for 2, maybe 3 winters.Quiter on dry and wet pavement...  Read More

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

I am on my second set of these tires on my Land Cruiser and they are great tires. I put 70,000 on the first set but they were not called Defenders just LTX M/S. Tread life is amazing and they are tough tires and can't be destroyed. They are great in most conditions snow, sand and rain and if you get a nail in them they can be repaired because they are thick...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

These tires are a vast improvement over the Continentals that came from the factory. They actually have grip in the snow and appear to be wearing much better. They seem as good in snow/ ice as any all season tire can be. Michelin tires aren't cheap, but tires are definitely a get what you pay for scenario.   Read More

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

This is by far the best set of tires I have owned for my truck. My dad had the same set on his truck, and he finally replaced them after 80,000 miles and the tires still had 5/32 left. I've put 12,000 miles on my set so far, and they all still have 12/32 left. Can't beat the traction, I've driven through three foot snow storms in these, and I've yet to get...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

This is my third review and these tires are going strong very little tread wear The noise levels have improved a bit at higher speeds All traction measurements except snow have remained constant in other words excellent It has not snowed since my last review so I can't comment on that at this time Overall I am completely satisfied with these Michelin tires I...  Read More

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

These tires replace the prior generation Michelin A/S 3's that I had on the car. One of the great features is the 45K mile warranty -- which I used to get into these tires. After 21K miles, the prior set was down to 3/32 in front and 4/32 in rear. They had gotten noisy, harsh, and obviously past their expected traction sweet-spot. So these new A/S 3+'s are a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I was absolutely blown away by these tires on my 05 BMW 325i (which is a rear wheel drive car). I drove through snow and spotty ice with complete confidence as I could hear the tires gripping the snow and ice on what would typically be a white knuckle driving trip. The ultimate test was in a dumping of 12 inches which the plows eventually got off the roads...  Read More

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
