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

I replaced my Continental OEM runflats with these Michelin PS AS/3 + non runflats and so far I am very happy with them. I only have about 450 miles on them so far and they are a great improvement in ride, quietness and handling. Have yet to get them up to high speed although I plan to soon.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I have been driving these big taxicab -like cars for 30 years, always with Michelin tires-usually Symmetry. They no longer offer those, so I tried the Premier All-Season. Well, they are not kidding when they say all-season. I just drove through the middle of the latest New England blizzard and these tire performed AMAZINGLY. They had excellent traction in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

With this being a higher mileage summer vehicle I had always purchased the cheapest tires I could get. After the last set wore out I decided to try a good tire and went with the Premier A/S. While I was concerned initially about the lower tread of 8.5/32 I only put 5000 or so miles/year on the car so they will last a while. There was a night and day...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Long Trail T/A Tour

This tire replaced the OEM Michelin's on my company car. They are excellent in light to heavy rain and light snow. The only thing about them is they are slightly noisy compared to the Michelin's. As far as tread wear goes its a little too early to tell but I'm having positive vibes it will be good.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Let me start off by saying these are performance tires so expect a slight trade off in ride comfort/noise over a touring tire. With that said, these tires grip like crazy! I usually only buy two tires at a time so I am still running the stock Michelin Primacy tires in the rear. The car is so much more playful than before and reacts so quickly to steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Road test immediately following installation was a mixture of elation and disappointment. Handling definitely much improved, but with substantially increased harshness in ride comfort, and road noise.Followed break-in recommendations, driving carefully for the next 800+ km. Ride comfort improved somewhat. After 1700 km my assessment is performance-wise...  Read More

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

I had a set of Nokian WR G3 SUV tires on my previous Subaru and while they gave me great winter performance they were very loud and pretty rough. When I bought the Outback I knew I wanted to replace the factory Bridgestones with something better and I debated about going with a dedicated winter tire but I just didn't want to mess with having to swap tires,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Bought the 2012 Lexus ES 350 new. Its is common knowledge that the OEMs wear out fairly quickly. Relocated to south Florida and installed the Michelin Premiers - what a difference! I am a car guy but tires where near a major factor as don't change tires often so hard to really compare. The difference between the OEM Bridgestones to Michelins is night and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Exceeded the millage warranty as I travel regularly in my auto, and found they are ready to be replaced. I do drive spirited and up and down Hwy I95 daily. These tires have held up really well compared to factory installed Goodyears. They are now getting noisy but again over the warranty, drove in both dry and wet weather and had great traction in both.Just...  Read More

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

These Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires were purchased to replace Pilot Super Sports to allow one set of year-round tires after moving to Georgia to avoid Northern winters. The goal was to combine the Pilot Super Sport Summer tire's dry and wet road traction with the ability to survive Atlanta's occasional wintertime snow and ice. All-Season Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

A winter/snow/ice tire is not the general purchase of a south Texas driver but after rolling my previous vehicle 2 years ago in an ice event in Colorado my wife insisted that I purchase some dedicated winter tires if we drove out to Colorado again. All I can say is thanks for the missus being so insistent. I purchased a set of these tires for our 2015 Subaru...  Read More

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

Will not get 45k out of them. Car sees 60 miles round trip daily. Amazing tire, wont knock it at all! The grip was still VERY good at 3-5/32nds. Down very close to wear bars at 37K, ie 3/32 on out side, 2/32 in center. Used to driving Corvettes and exotics.Great tire if you want southern all season performance, or 90-95% of the Pilot Sport cups while getting...  Read More

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

I just replaced Sumitomos with the Michelin AS 3+ the difference is amazing. I now get traction instead of wheel spin even on wet surfaces, they are so quiet I can hear my engine or my cell phone. These tires are a great choice, well worth the price.   Read More

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

I have always bought Bridgestone tires for all of my vehicles. Would highly recommend them for all cars and trucks in all driving scenarios. The original equipment Michelin MXM4 that came on the car barely got to 30K miles. I hope I have great use of these Bridgestones as I have with every set I've purchased before... will review again after putting some...  Read More

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

Right off the bat the two biggest differences between the AS3 and the OEM tires, which wore out in 11K mi, was the handling and wet road performance. The car actually feels lighter on its feet; steering response is much quicker - move the wheel and car responds instantly.I have been able to chirp the tires in a 1st to 2nd gear up shift with traction control...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

Replaced the OEM Goodyear Eagle GT's after about 22,000 miles with the Michelin Latitudes. I was unhappy with the Goodyear tires as they wore unevenly (even with proper tire rotation) and started to crack along the edges. I replaced all 4 tires with new Latitude HP's and also did a wheel alignment. What a noticeable difference in ride comfort and traction !...  Read More

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

These tires replaced the set that came on the car when we bought it used. I was not impressed by the ride or the response. A slow leak issue prompted us to replace them and our mechanic/ TireRack installer recommended the Michelin brand, these tires specifically. The ride is firm, not plush but the handling is excellent. The BMW 128i now drives like it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

When the long term winter forecast for Western Washington called for a severe winter by our standards I decided to spring for a dedicated set of winter tires due to my 37 mile one way daily commute. Based on the recommendation of TIRERACK ,I chose a narrower tire with taller sidewall than the stock 205/55 R16. The choice to purchase 195/65 R15 Michellin...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I bought those tires mostly on the basis of other reviews. I didn't want to buy a dedicated snow tire/wheel set for my M5 and wanted something to work in snow and summer.Bottom line, this tire's traction in snow is very decent... On ice, it's not that good as I expected. The ride is soft and cornering isn't that great but again this is an all season tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I waited several months to post this review because I wanted to see how these tires handled my New England winter. I was looking for that utopia of both great summer and winter performance - at speed - and would last a while. I was replacing some very expensive Michelin's which were 90% of the way to that goal - but wore out quickly (which I accept for what...  Read More
