Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Was a sceptic regarding Bridgestone Tires, always thought of them as low quality, but these were the best price so I tried them. I am so happy with these tires, handling is great, they are extremely quiet, grippier than the previous Michelins. Cant complain, I am a convert.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Amazing grip in lousy conditions. Excel on ice. Very predictable. The best snow tire I have ever had and that list includes Bridgestone Blizzak, Pirelli Scorpion, Yokohama, Goodyear. And the best part is that they are extremely quiet. Something rare for a snow tire. I followed the recommendation of the TR rep and he didn't lead me astray. Can't beat TR for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 ZP

These tires performance are as expected. Great all-season traction on my all-wheel drive BMW 525 IX. Tires are quite and ride comfortable. I like to keep 33-34 psi in all tires. This pressure seems to give the best ride. Michelin's are a little higher priced but have NEVER been disappointed.   Read More

This tire is a revelation on my new MK7 Golf R. In simple terms the PSS allows the brilliant all wheel drive R to reach it's higher levels of driver engagement & is a pleasure to behold.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

These are the OEM tires on my 2009 MDX. Over the last 15 years I have had several sets of Goodyears, several sets of Bridgestones, one set of Pirellis and one other set of Michelins. These tires have performed the best of all of them. While these Michelins are not perfect, I would definitely consider buying them again if they were priced competitvely.These...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy LX4

Michelin Energy is agreat handling tire. All Michelin tires are over priced in my opinion but they certainly are one of the best performing tires on the market. You get what you pay for. As for longevity, these Energy tires held up very well for my mostly highway driving style.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These continental Extreme contacts have about 37,800 miles on them with anywhere between 31 to 33 lbs of air in tires, rotate every 6k miles and hoping to get another 6k miles out of them. The word S is worn off the center of (DWS) indicator and they have become sleek on moderate take off from a stop on wet roads.These Contis have the nature of hard ride...  Read More

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

Great tire, amazing dry & wet traction. Driving an SL(Sports Light ?) requires a tire with sure footing at speed and occasional wet weather conditions. This Michelin A/S 3 sticks like glue dry road or wet. Has minor noise around 45 mph, not intrusive but disappointiing to me. Good ride, handles well like a performance tire. My car has gvw listed 4,4xx lbs....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S (W-Speed Rated)

I'v always had Michelin MXV4 Tires before I bought the B.F.Gooderich Super Sport A/S. I thought after reading about the New Design of the B.F.Gooderich Super Sport I thought I'll give them a try. The price is lower...I would probably get a lower quality tire...not so! These are the best tires I have ever purchased so far and I would buy them again!They are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Bought these for my Honda Ridgeline. This is the third set of tires on this vehicle. The first one was the OEM Michelin LTX M/S which dry rotted after about 15,000. The second set was probably the best all weather tire I've had. They were Nokians WR G2 SUV with the snow flake symbol on them but they were good in the summer as well. The big trade off with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

Well, I own a CTS-V Coupe (Daily Driver and Track Car) that originally came with Michelin PS2's, which are great tires (OE). I have had my V on the local track on both sets of tires and the Bridgestones are fantastic in their own right, not to mention the price. I have run both tires up to 179 mph without any stability, pressure or temp issues. What I really...  Read More

Is the Firestone Winterforce a Good Winter Tire?

As one of the most economically priced winter tires available on the market, many drivers question if the Firestone Winterforce is a good fit for their vehicle. Does the tire have what it takes to compete with many of the newer generation front-runners?
