Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

Excellent grip in wet, good traction is deep snow. Predictable handling and traction on ice. A very fun tire to drive on - in the wet, predictable and tons of grip. Hands down a better performance winter tire than the Dunlops that were on before.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

For any of you experiencing a harsher than normal ride on this tire in your Ford Edge...make sure you have them inflated at 35 psi! As they break in they lose tire pressure. Check the tire pressure every fill up or at the latest once every 3 weeks. Having an under inflated tire or over inflated tire even can makes bumps harsher and rattle the vehicle. I...  Read More

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

Only have roughly 700 miles on these tires, but since I just drove through a snow storm from Iowa City to Chicago, I figured I could say a thing or two. First and fore most, these tires are far superior to the tires Acura installed when I purchased this vehicle new. Original tires were Michelin Primacy HXM4. The original tires had long tire wear (almost...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

With only 1500 miles on these tires, I couldn't be happier. The smoothness of the ride is noticeably improved over the OEM Bridgestone's. Handling is great, too. I'll report back next spring on winter driving!!   Read More

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

I did a lot of research before deciding on replacement tires for my 2007 Ford Escape. I p;laced an order for 4 of these Michelin Defender tires from TireRack. No matter where I looked the reviews and comments were very good. I had been driving Continental ContiTrac tires which were just OK, I wanted to try something different. These Michelin tires arrived at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

I have 130,000 km's on these tires and I still have 60% life left on them. These tires are awesome in all weather. Icy roads are a challenge for these tires but it might be too that my car is not very heavy. Handling is awesome in dry weather and in wet weather as well. I am going to purchase these tires for my other vehicle. Tread life is amazing. I've had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have had very good experience in the past with several Blizzak tires but the size I needed was not available for my 2016 Audi A6 FWD. So I bought the Michelin X-Ice. I was really looking forward to see how they worked. I feel they worked very good in light snow, slushy, and ice conditions. One day after a significant snowfall, maybe 7 inches I decided to...  Read More

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

Had Michelin PSS for 18,000 miles. They were down to wear bars. Replaced with Pole Positions. Fabulousvride, low noise considering Max performance summer rubber. Overall handling is 95% as good as PSS. Wet traction is better than PSS, and ride quality is same or better. Car handles and tracks perfectly. Running factory psi specs of 35/36. Wear rate at 1,700...  Read More

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

These tires and new wheels were purchased for winter driving and so far we have had just a few days of light snow. The tires along with a bit wider wheel have increased the Jeep's handling stability in corners, with some increase in tire noise but not at all off putting, I like the change in handling so much I will leave them on year round over the OEMs.   Read More

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
