Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Riken Raptor ZR

I haven't driven much on this tire (1 month) to be hit up for a review but so far--no disappointments. Raptors are reasonably quiet and have done well in all conditions--no drama even on cold bare roads after a minor wet snowfall. Seeing as how these are made by Michelin, I was not surprised at how well these performed--especially for a tire costing less...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I drive the car daily and the streets where I drive are not very good. The tires handle the bad pot holes and street conditions very well. The handling qualities of the tire feel really good. They respond very well to steering input in both wet and dry conditions. I was surprised on how comfortable they are, the ride quality is great. Very quiet tires so far...  Read More

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

Compared to the stock Pirelli Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico tires, the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ in 255/45R20 size are better in every way. Most notably the ride comfort and road noise are excellent. Wet and dry traction are much improved over the Pirelli. There are not very many choices of tires in this size but regardless I am completely satisfied with these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I'm a spirited driver and previously came out of the Michelin Pilot Super Sports, which was a fantastic performing tire in itself, but the most noticeable change with the new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S is an improvement in the ride quality and harshness from the tire when hitting impacts in the road and the dry handling responsiveness and cornering stability....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I replaced my Bridgestone S04 tires with the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S and the 1st thing I noticed was the softer ride quality. The S04 was a good tire and I was happy with the traction but the Michelin is simply a better riding tire. The steering response does not seem quote as responsive as the S04 but the dry traction is incredible for a street tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 N-Spec

If you are looking for a performance winter tire. This is it. I've used normal winter tires on a Honda Civic before and i hated the handling and the noise and the grip in the rain and dry wasn't that great. With my performance package Mustang GT, I knew i wanted to maintain the sporty handling that the car had on the factory Pirelli P-Zero Maximum...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I rarely write reviews, but felt compelled to do so for this tire.Just replaced my Ecsta Platinums with another set after 61K miles! I've rarely gotten more than 40K out of a set of tires before they started having problems - and never remember over 50K. 95% highway miles - and while I'm not aggressive with the tires, I'm no Sunday driver either. Rotated...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Bought these tires to replace the OE Bridgestone tires on my '13 Highlander after 50K of city/hwy combined driving. OE Bridgestone tires were okay, but I was looking for a better all season tire for all types of driving here in eastern PA.Reviewed all of the TR testing and reviews and decided to go with these Michelins. After 7,500 miles of fall, winter, and...  Read More

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

This Volvo S90 shipped with summer Pirelli P Zero tires on 20 wheels, but we needed all season tires and there aren't many choices in this size. We knew the 20 wheels and summer tires would be a problem when we bought the car. We tried to find a 19 option, but that didn't work and instead we arranged for Volvo to install Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+ tires,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I've driven about 500 miles, all dry weather. I'm coming from Pirelli PZero Corsa and then PZero and the first thing you notice about the 4S is the ride and noise comfort. Noticeably better than my previous two tire types. Dry grip is outstanding, no experience in the rain yet. I'm experiencing just a slight front tire push at the limit but that could be due...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Excellent tire! Significant improvement over the Pirelli P Zero I was running before (which I replaced early). This tire is much quieter and it has a lot more grip. With 560hp and AWD I have had no traction issues, not even on launch control. In the rain the level of grip is amazing. Ride quality is also a little better. Fantastic tire.   Read More

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

I have been a Michelin tire advocate in the past and these are the first OE Bridgestones I have kept on a vehicle. I have been extremely pleased with them. Over all performance catagories the tires, for the replacement cost, are better than Michelin tires. As a retired police officer I can attest to the Bridgestone tires performance in aggressive driving,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

We replaced the 20 wheels and tires and installed these 22 tires with new wheels. I drove a new Expedition Platinum with factory 22s and Pirelli tires, tire noise was pretty evident. After replacing the Hankook 20s with these 22s I couldn't believe the smooth ride and 0 tire noise! I was apprehensive about replacing 20s with 22s for ride quality and tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Downsized from stock Conti 5P in 235/35/19 to these 4S in 245/40/18. Wanted to add some sidewall for additional rim protection. Wasn't prepared for how quiet and smooth the ride became. Took the new shoes to Deals Gap and Tail of the Dragon where they performed way too well in 40 degree wet weather for a summer tire. Once the weather got to more appropriate...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I mean this tire speaks for itself, my car came with Dunlop run-flats which are complete garbage so having had a spare winter wheel/tire set up for the car, I opted to install summer tires for my OEM Rays Eng. performance package wheels. The car feels like a completely different animal, the steering response is great (though I have electronic steering) but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

BEST SUMMER TIRES EVER. Save yourself the time and just buy them. I've had Kumho, Sumitomo, Goodyear, Pirelli, Bridgestone and a lot of the Michelin's before the PS4. The PS4's are light years ahead. Unbelievable traction in all conditions, even at the limits. Yet somehow they are super quiet and the ride quality is amazing. Soft, supple even. I have them on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical

New car OE on 2017 Mazda6 Touring. I see there is a specific tread design for the Mazda6 according to TR. My first impression of the Mazda6--I've been car shopping for many months, have driven numerous others including Optima, Sonata, Elantra, Mazda3, etc., was, this Mazda6 is CONNECTED! Is it the tires or the tire size? The setup? I can't say.I can say that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Could not be happier. Amazed at the difference these new tires made to the way our Infiniti rides, handles and just makes the car feel. Thought my previous tires were great ( a set of P7's ) these new Michelin tires are much better. Also very happy with Tire Rack. Fast shipment, good service at one of there installers and a better price than I was able to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Have had these tires for about 5k miles so far. In the beginning, tires were stiffer so the road quality was harsher but over time the ride has become pretty smooth and quiet. Handling is a little down from the stock tires but overall pleased - still maintains the CX-5 fun to drive feel. MPG wise doing well - on highway in the 30-31 mpg range, average around...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Tire size is 215/45-17, the OEM spec'd size. The feedback here is after 52k+ miles on the tires. I've had the tires since Jan-2016 and average 3400 miles/month or 40.8k miles/annum. The review is not as comprehensive as I would like because we had a light snow the past winter. To reflect this, I had to leave the heavy snow and ice ratings as N/A.The feedback...  Read More
