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

I purchased these tires to replace the stock Dunlop sp2050 summer tires on my Mazdaspeed3. The michelins not only have higher overall grip but ride more smoothly and quietly. They still look phenomenal after 10k miles, with the lowest tire still measuring over 8/32nds with lots of spirited driving. I turn off traction control and spin them at least weekly.I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

It is hardly fair to compare the dry handling characteristics of the 19inch snow tires to the 21inch summer PS2 that came with the car. However, the change was quite jarring when I took that first on-ramp. Compared to other dedicated winter tires I have had, I find the noise level to be really remarkably good for a true snow tire, and the handling...  Read More

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

The Michelin Pilot AS3 is simply amazing in the wet and dry (cold or hot weather). I bought this in the summer and so far I've accumulated roughly 5000 miles on these. The steering feel is very responsive, you always know what the tires are doing, I could have sworn this feels very much like a high performance summer tire. In return, you could also feel some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I purchased a set of these tires in hopes of a cross over tire that could handle daily driving and track use. In short: amazing tires! These are some of the most precise and predictable tires I have used, which makes them perfect for spirited driving on curvy canyon roads and occasional ventures to the track. I live in southern California and don't get much...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I held off on reviewing this tire until I had a few miles on this set. I now have almost 20,000 miles on them and they look like new. I had Michelins on my Mazda 6 prior to replacing them with the Generals. I have replaced Michelins in the past because I found them to be terrible in the rain and snow as well as noisy when cornering. The Altimax tires corner...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I was skeptical when looking at the tread design and depth but these tire are amazing! They stick to the road in any driving conditions even are a blast on spirited back road drives. They never missed a beat in snow, deep or light. My only complaint is the noise on cement. They are very loud when crossing bridges or any stretch of cement surface. But, as...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I was lucky that the new Michelin Premier LTX tires came out in June in for my 2012 Ford Explorer. This is the 3rd set of tires I have put on my car which currently is at 99,500 miles. The first set of Hankook Optimo tires were horribly unsafe and I took them off at 35,000 miles. The next set of Michelin Latitude Tour tires lasted until 98,750 miles but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus N-Spec

the tires have 20,000 miles and still have plenty of tread for this car snow traction is better than expected in wet it really holds the road well and does not hydroplane in dry, it is not a summer tire but it does very very well on the corners and responds very well   Read More

6 Months / 9000 miles later. Driving habits 90% highway / country road 10% city Very conservative driving in terms of tread wear Purchased a set of 4 new LX20 tires after taking several months of reading customer reviews to replace my OEM goodyears. Strong points of these tires : Almost no rolling noise/resistance, great tires in terms of fuel consumptionExce...  Read More

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

Not a bad tire thus far.This winter north of Boston, Ma has been horrible and these tires do not do well in snow over a few inches. Not a bad all around tire. I am anxious to see how long they last.   Read More

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

I had old A/S tires and they went bad only after 26,000 miles. Also noise was quite bad. New A/S 3 are much better as far as lateral road holding and cornering. Braking is also much improved. Cornering is phenomenal and fully compatible to Super Sports that I have on my MBW M3. Road noise is okay, but still quite high. Road feel is good and predictable. Yet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

The improvement to ride quality and comfort was noticable immediately. The Defenders are also exceptionally quiet as compared to the OEM Bridgestone Duelers. The CRV rides like a different vihicle now, but in a very good way. Although our experience with driving in snow and ice is limited to only one relatively mild storm so far, the Defenders seem to be, at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Last week I put identical sized tires and rims on my AH3 M sport, and my wife's BMW X1. 225-45-18. Michelin x-ice 3.So far, they are the best handling snow tire I have ever used. Dry pavement handling does not feel like a snow tire, but more like an all season. Stability and traction are superb. There is no floating all over the road like I felt with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

This tire was recommended by the Tire Rack and Michelin sites for this vehicle, a 1999 MB CL500 coupe with 110,000 miles in exceptional condition, incl suspension. Tires are 100 H series (135mph max).I have owned many brands (eight by count) and buy Michelin's, due to the consistent performance, durability and quality. Car has the M119 high performance...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus

I replaced a full set of Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S's with these vastly superior tires after only 24,000 miles on those tires, when they developed bubbles in the sidewalls. I have nothing detrimental to say regarding the Pilot Sport A/S Pluses. They performed well in dry, wet, tropical downpour and winter Nor'easter conditions. In the very few times I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-32

Tires are mounted on one of our patrol cars. We have only 3954 miles on them so far. They are much better than any Michelin winter tire my department has ever purchased. Traction has been excellent in the snow and the car stops quickly on packed ice. Driving response has been excellent.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I now have more significant experience with theae tires in snow, sleet, freezing rain & slush and all I can say is wow! These tire transform the Tiguan with 4 Motion into a snowmobile in the snow, I am glued to the road! great tire and wheel package from Tire Rack. This car is the one my son uses and I have no worries about him driving in the snow now!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

After reading reviews thought I'd try a set to replace the Yokohamas that were on. The improved ride,noise reduction & traction were dramatic.I don't drive in the snow or rain but warm or cold these things grip the road, even with spirited driving.They currently have 3,000 miles with no signs of abnormal wear when rotated.With this much grip I was concerned...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

I've had my set for 6 months, and a little over 12,000 miles. I can honestly say that this is the best all-around, all-season tire that I've ever driven on. For city driving, the braking and acceleration, on wet, icy and snowy conditions had been excellent: predictable and sure. This tire's performance at highway speeds ranging from 65mph - 110mph, over long...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

This is my first set on winter tires and I have now driven these during two significant snow events in Wisconsin. The difference in traction, braking distance, and just the general sense of driving confidence they give you is nothing short of astonishing. Putting these on has made my car's ABS and VSC systems incredibly more effective - in the absence of...  Read More
