Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

I currently have these tires on a 2004 BMW 330Ci. There were a lot of bad reviews on here about these tires but I decided to buy them anyway because of the much lower price and the $80 rebate offered. I owned a pair of Hankook Ventus RS2 about 5 years ago and those tires were the best (200 tread wear). The cornered compared to the Micheline Pilot Sport 2 for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Diamaris

Bought a used 2005 X5 and needed tires within 3 months of purchased. As my first BMW and an SUV at that, I was very impressed with the handling but shocked at the price per tire ($300+) . Tire Rack has the best prices so that helped. Another shock (didn't notice at purchase was the different sizes, front to rear, so no rotating. This became my wife's car and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

- Only a person with lots of money to spend can afford to buy cheap tires, because when the tires fail or wear out prematurely, They can afford to go out and buy more tires.

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

My 2014 Audi S5 came with Pirelli PZero Rosso, 255, 35 YR, 19 tires; great, sticky summer performance tires to be sure. By 10K miles, it was easily time to replace them. They'd become very loud, and the OK wet handling had become squirelly at best. I decided to go with the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 in the same size and speed rating (both are also load rated...  Read More

Quite possibly the best tires I've ever owned. Excellent in wet or dry, even in light snow. Beyond about 4 is pushing it though. They're quiet, comfortable, excellent handling, long wearing, and reasonably priced (about half the cost of the previous Michelins I had, and they perform just as well if not better). I bought them when the car had 107,000 miles on...  Read More
