Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

This is absolutely the BEST tire I have had on my 07 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. I drive a healthy mix of city and highway, on a winding mountain highway. Good tires are very important to me. I have had a whole host of tires on my Highlander over the years trying to find the promised land of durability, handling and ride comfort.Prior to the Continental...  Read More

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

Replaced original Goodyear ZP on 2007 Corvette Conv. with 35K miles. Immediate reduction in road noise and comfort of ride. Sidewall is softer and absorbs noise much better than original run flat tires. Eliminated humm from back tires that I thought was just par for the course for tires with this much road contact. Paid more for independent garage to install...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I purchased these Pirada SpecX's for my 2003 Murano solely based on the reviews I read here. I bought this vehicle new and they came stocked with Goodyear Eagles. Ride and traction and wear was average. I replaced them with a set of Michelins from Costco Tire. Wear and traction again average. The ride, not so much. They turned my SE into the ride of a pickup...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I bought these tires in September of 2015. They replaced a set of Michelin Defender tires. I was pleased with the Defender but bought these based on Tire Rack's ratings. I have been only pleased with the Continentals! I will buy another set when needed. They wear evenly & well. They are quiet. They offer good traction all around. Fuel mileage was comparable...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Living in Minnesota winters have a tendency to be really tough. One day we will have -15 degree temps and it will be nothing but sheer ice, the next day it could be 20 degrees with wet heavy snow. So far the tires have been absolutely phenomenal! When I got them installed to replace the OEM all season Nexen tires I was expecting that the road noise would be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Purchased this tire stateside with road hazard as replacement for General Grabber. Initially satisfied with all normal driving conditions, as per Tire Rack's recommendations. MPG increased by .5 over the Grabber, which was already an increase of 1 MPG over the OEM Michelins. Only detractor was road noise increased, but it was minimal and worth the slight...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

First set of these that came from Ford wore perfectly. Replaced at 50k b/c I was heading into winter. Replaced with another identical set. 39k later, they are cracking and dry rotting on the inside and outside shoulder blocks, as well as in the tread pattern. No unusual wear and enough tread for another 20k. Michelin refuses to replace saying it's normal and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

These tires came stock on my new car. I previously had the older P Zeros Pirellis on my 2007 911 and did not really like them. They were fast wearing and did not let you know when you where getting close to losing traction. I replaced them with Michelin Super Sports and truly love these tires. I still have them on my 2007 (now my wife's car). I recently took...  Read More

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

This is an upgrade on a Chevrolet one ton van 8lug wheel. Original tires were Bridgestone and they were the hardest riding tire. Additionally I wanted to add the six spoke Chevrolet aluminum rims which are 17x7.5 vs the stock 16x6.5. I drive this van usually lightly loaded if not empty. Therefore I wanted a tire with a lower aspect ratio for improved...  Read More

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

Only approx 5000 miles on tires .I tried to get OEM for the GT due to handling concerns . Very pleased on dry cornering and stability in turns, minimal use so far in rain/ wet conditions but no issues . Highway speeds(+) very responsive and stable . My GT is a convertible so more of (expected)wind noise than tire noise noticed at higher speeds . Would...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Forget the ratings and the mileage. I had to put in something to tell this story. Just bought them. Wow! WOW! Just amazed at the difference the quietness, smooth and soft ride. Handling is so good. Rude the noise level on a scale of 1-10 to a 11 on quietness and smoothness. It's like a new truck. My family is just blown away by the difference. It's like a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I mostly tow a motorcycle trailer on the highway. Over 50,000 miles and still tread left. Handles well on the mountain roads. Original tires lasted 40,000 miles. Michelin Latitude HP tour lasted 30,000 miles. These LTX tires are great. Recently put them on my wife's Edge. No complaints with these tires. Drove 8 hours through a tropical storm on the highway...  Read More

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

We live in upstate New York, and can have significant snowfall. We have separate summer and winter tires, these are our winter tires, and are the best winter tires we've ever had. They handle quite well on dry pavement but really shine on snow and ice. Quite often, I've passed other vehicles that have slid off the road, even 4wd, and we just keep going.   Read More

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

These tires replaced the original Bridgestone Potenza's (high performance, summer) that came with the G37. They are a noticeable step up in performance, primarily in the wet, compared to the Bridgestones. They are also quieter, though that may not be an accurate comparison as the Bridgestones were at the end of their life compared to the new Michelin's. This...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Sport 3

These replaced the Continentals (lasted 20k mi) that came OE with the Macan. In comparison, the Michelin's have similar traction characteristics but ride much smoother and have lower cabin noise. Have always had good experiences with Michelin's.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

These things are amazing. So much better than the Pirelli Scorpions that came OE on the Edge. I did up the width by 20mm, diameter stayed the same, but they haven't hydroplaned like the OE tire would in heavy rain. The Edge handles like a much smaller vehicle now, my wife even noticed the difference. I haven't noticed any wear as of yet, and our mileage has...  Read More

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

These tires are great if you drive lots of miles a year, but if not Michelin and bf Goodrich which is also owned by Michelin seem to dry rot, the side walls and have been known to cause blow out with good tread left I have worked on tires for 5 years in two states, also when patching a tire you have to buff the inner side of the tire to prep the area the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

These tires were a huge positive difference from the stock all seasons from Khumo. These tires provide a much safer veichle to drive. We had great confidence in all conditions. Way worth the money. I have now sold this car and I am looking to purchase a new set for my new veichle.   Read More

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

I put 4 of these Michelins on my F-350when the previous Firestone Destination tires wore out after 40K miles. The primary use of this truck is pulling our 13,000 lb. toy hauler. I found these Michelins to be very stable and solid pulling the trailer and forgiving when the trailer is not attached. They are quiet and responsive and although they have not seen...  Read More

Had this on my Chevy crew cab for a year now ....ride is better than what came on the truck new , had to trash them after 18,000 due to cupping .....Bridgestone says it was my fault ...so now I drive michelins and love them ....can't wait for a little muddling and I can review their performance   Read More
