Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

I purchased these to replace the factory Continental ContiProContacts. These have a noticeably slower steering response and require more input around an exit ramp but nothing worth giving it a negative remark. I had expected this when reading reviews between this tire and the Primacy MXM4. I decided on these due to a slightly lower price but mostly due to...  Read More

Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3: A Year in Review

Launching last year with much anticipation was Michelin's latest entry to the Ultra High Performance All-Season category, the Pilot Sport A/S 3. Having secured a spot in our internal test last summer, we quickly found this tire to be extremely competitive in both the dry and wet. With the sharpest handling and best communication of the group, the tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

Adding my review mainly because I have read so many bad reviews for these tires on wet surfaces. I have enjoyed EXCELLENT traction in extreme Florida rain. I feel very confident traveling in a pack at a moderate rate of speed in very wet conditions and with almost as much confidence as I do when traveling in the wet at speed in my 2007 Tahoe equipped with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HT RH12

I just replaced my aging Michelin tires with this set from tire rack. A week after we had our first snowstorm in northern NJ. The tires handled the snow with no issues. I saw a lot of 4x4 SUVs sliding up one hill by us and I had no issues at all. In the dry the tires are very quiet and the steering response is similar to the Michelins, which were a lot more...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Great all around performer. Smooth, quiet ride, nice stiff sidewalls makes my truck ride all around much better. Stock Dunlops were a joke in comparison. Great in winter conditions. Snow flake rating and new compound deffinately is no lye. Alberta winter conditions are no problem for this tire so far.Brand new tire so I can't comment on wear yet. Overall...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Though I absolutely love these tires on my VW Passat 4Motion wagon, they are completely different story on the Avalon. This is a large front drive high output V-6 sedan with a soft suspension. They handle just like the Michelin MVX4S that came on the car. Couldn't wait to get rid of the Michelins after 40,000 miles. Steering response with the Pure Contact is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

I bought these tires because someone here compared them to Michelins. I'm so glad I did. When I drove on them for the first time I couldn't believe how quiet they are. My radio is still at the same level with no trouble hearing it and my gas mileage is still the same even with the aggressive treads pattern. I wanted to wait to write this review so I could...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I had ECSTA 4's on my 09 Avalon they did not slip as much on street paint as the PA31's I just put on my 11 Avalon that why I got rid of my Michelins'with only 15000 miles on them. if I wear these out I will go back to the '4's otherwise I like these tires   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

The wear on these tires is incredible! The snow/mud traction not so much. I do 99% of my driving on hard roads, so tread wear is more important than snow/mud worries but, I've got two boys with their own trucks that give me A LOT of grief when they can go places on the farm that I can't do to lack of traction.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport V105

Can't believe i'm the first to review this awesome tire! I've tried the Continental 5P/Michelin Supersports/and now the V105's. These tires met and exceeded all my expectations. Can't believe they have so much dry traction.. No tire squeeling on high speed corners and it really takes a lot to tax these tires. Although they wear fast that is to be expected...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

First thing first, I,,replaced the O.E.tires(Bridgestone Dueler),that came with my vehicle when I purchased it. Those tires were not going to survive winter driving conditions.Regardless of your all-wheel-drive system, the most important factor in poor driving conditions, is tire traction.I, previously had excellent experience with Continental A/S DWS, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

These tires are exceptionally sure-footed in every winter situation they have faced already: ice, slush, sleet, rain, light and deeper (about 8) snow as well as dry but cold roads both paved and gravel. They are not noisy on the road. Still need to use sensible, safe driving practices but these tires afford an extra margin of safety when weather conditions...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I used to swear by BFGs, I had a set of Long Trail TA's years ago and they were some of the best I had ever had. But they changed something, the next set that I bought only lasted about 30,000 miles and handled like ----.So I went on the hunt for my next tire. Tried the brand new BFG Rugged Terrains, after my stock Generals wore out, they were ok, but lacked...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

If you don't believe the hype with these tires, then you need to try them and boy will you be a believer. After having the front suspension components replaced on my 650i equipped with 19 genuine BMW Style 167(M6) wheels(245/40ZR19 and 275/35ZR19) along with a weighted alignment, it is literally like day and night when it comes to responsiveness and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

These are my OEM tires on my 2010 Ford Taurus SHO. It is finally time to replace these tires. Being AWD I've rarely rotated them, but even wear. With the SHO if I gun it, they will spin momentarily. Looking at the other tires and reviews of the cheaper Goodyears, I will likely buy these Michelin's again. Like to accelerate 0-70 on freeway ramps, but no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S

These tires were OEM supplied. Having had poor experiences in the past with Michelins on several Acuras, I was very skeptical. These changes my mind. They are very quiet and smooth. We live in the Santa Cruz mountains and drive a combination of very fast well maintained roads which could be described as our own private race track (HWY 9, HWY 35, HWY 236 and...  Read More

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
