Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S

I drive a lot in my business, Every 7 months Im at the tire dealer buying a new set. This set is right at 70k miles and I bought them Feb of 2016 and its at the end of Aug 2016 and Im buying a new set. I buy Michelin from the brand name reputation and these tires have a 70,000 mile lifespan. My truck when new came with a set of Generals that did not last...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Champion Fuel Fighter (T-Speed Rated)

Bought these to replace BFG Touring TA with 3/32 tread remaining; tires were horribly loud and vibrated like crazy. Put most of the miles on commuting 170 miles each day. I only got these due to dealer giving me a great deal for being a loyal customer. Considered Michelins, but they were more than double what I paid, and reviews were not that positive. Even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

The OEM Tires that came with the car only lasted about 38,000 miles (we use snow tires in the past two winters) Used to buy Mich. tires but found them to be too expensive. I have been with the same tire dealer for 20 years and he strongly reccomended them, I talked to his wife and she has these on her Lexis and loves them. I took a chance as they were out of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

Replaced OEM Dunlop at 25K miles with Ecopia due to bad ride comfort and noise level.Switched to H-rated Ecopia and immediately noticed better and softer ride on bumpy road. Road noise has been significantly reduced as I can listen to radio with volume level 2 even at 70 MPH on highway. I dislike Lexus stiff suspension on RX since I bought the car new. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance CS Fuel Max

I believe these tires are too soft of a compound for this heavy suv. I will admit I have not rotated them every 5k as I have brought it to the dealer for the free two year maintence which is about every 7,500. The tires are wearing terribly on the outer edges. I have one more rotation and then all four will need replacement. The most I will get out of these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

I drive aggressively and on the road most of the day and must say best New tire I have ever bought. I not only caught these tires on sale NO ONE, not even personal friends whom work in the business could match or beat the price. I read most of the reviews on these tires and the OEM Firestone 740 tires and it was a no brainer. The Firestone were noisy as they...  Read More

Better Priced Options for the 19" Equipped Ford Escape

Some of the newer Ford Escape models are arriving on dealer's showroom floors installed with tire size 235/45R19. Unfortunately, there are only a handful of options in that size and they tend be on the higher side of the price scale. There is hope out there though. We have found an alternate size that offers more choices and has a lower price. This alternate...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

The Michelin Primacy MXV4 is the brand and model I have installed on two Honda Accords. I have bought a replacement set for both vehicles with excellent results on both. Since I prefer a tire that has exceptional handling without flat spots or cold thump, holds well in the corners and has good road feel, the Michelin MXV4 has all this and longevity as well....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Purchased these tires(from a local dealer) based on reviews as a replacement for Michelin MXV4. These are tough tires to properly road force balance. Ride is a bit jittery and after two attempts at balancing (values of 13 lbs. on all four tires) the ride is still disappointing. Road noise is great but will not know snow handling characteristics until this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I've only had these tires for about 100 miles but they are vast improvement over the goodyear eagles that came with the vehicle. The Michelins are much quieter, I would estimate a 10th of the noise that the goodyear's produced.Lousy experience with installer in my area, actually refused to install tires. I had to have them picked up and brought to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot HX MXM4

Michelins came as OE on 2011 Accord EX-L. Best set of tires I've ever owned and couldn't believe they lasted to almost 100,000 miles. Consistently rotated tires with each oil change (about every 8-9K) at Honda dealer. Couldn't have been happier with a set of tires and working on my 2nd set -- hope that they'll last for the car's 2nd 100K miles.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I've had these tires for a couple of weeks. The original tires on my XK were death traps. It was impossible to move the car if there was any snow or ice. I mean even a hint. THe car slid or stood still. When it was time for new rubber, (24,500 miles) I knew I had to get an all weather tire.The dealer suggested Michelin Pilot all weather. Of course they also...  Read More

2002 Park Avenue with WS80 Blizzak...also see my 2000 Park ave ws70 Blizzak review.My wife needs ice tires this runs more highway freeway and metro streets stop n go lights etc, but also needs to get through deep snow at times.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2

The Honda CRV came equipped with these tires from the dealer. They are very good winter/ice driving around the city and are quiet on the highway. Good all round characteristics. Do not know about tread life yet...warranty says 60,000KM. I will replace them probably with Michelin Xi3 before then.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Without a doubt, this is one of the BEST tires I have ever used on a vehicle! I have about 10K miles on it now & the tread wear is perfect along with the ride & performance. I recently drove from Lancaster PA to Richmond VA in the late winter storm that hit in late Feb and had ZERO issues in several inches of snow and in ice. The ride is smooth and noise...  Read More

Michelin vs Goodyear Tires

Even those who have not done much research into tires recognize the Goodyear and Michelin brands. Being respected brands and household names, they're often sought out by shoppers as a primary choice. Decades of experience designing and manufacturing tires have given both companies a well-deserved reputation.   In order to maintain their good names, major...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Replacing OE ContiProCoontact with 50% tread remaining because of hydroplaning! TrueContact quietness will not impress an Odyssey driver though this is a relatively quiet tire. They will definitely be enamored and impressed with the smooth and controlled ride. This is an outstanding tire. The ride is incrediibly comfortable really smoothing the bumps in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S

Purchased a week before a 5 day blizzard hit the Great Smokey Mountain. These tires drive through drifts over the bumper with out getting stuck. Yes it's 4WD but it's only a Pilot SUV; if it had been on a real 4WD Pickup, I think it would handled everything. Here in Tennessee, they don't bank corners in the road but allow them to roll with the lay of the...  Read More

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

My IS-350 has the staggered fitment: 225-40/18 and 255-40/18. I average 17K miles annually, mostly highway with aggressive city driving. I wanted summer tire performance with better wear and I hoped that the Pilot Sport A/S 3's would deliver.I bought the car used and the dealer installed Firestone Wide Ovals on the front and Fierce Instincts on the rear. The...  Read More
