Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I currently run two sets of tires on my Mustang her in New England, 3 seasons of my Original Stock Pirelli P-Nero Zero High Performance Summer Tires and 3 winters of Driving with my Blizzak Performance Winter Snow Tires. It was time to replace the stock summer tires that had worn down to almost nothing with only 35k Miles.First of all the thing I noticed...  Read More

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

I'm impressed with the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 even though I have only driven less than 500 miles. I agonized over the performance/cost trade-off with my previous replacement tire favorite, the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. The entire experience with Tire Rack was impressive - the customer service and the efficient transaction handling - plus setup for local...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

I have a 2015 Stage 3 Roush modified to 800hp, the stock Cooper tires had zero traction and were best suited for drifting. I have had the 970AS before on my Mustang and loved them so this time I went back to them and love them all over again. Great treadwear but most of all they stick. I always run 36 front and 34 rear to offset engine weight and these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Spec

I bought these tires for autocrossing. I knew going in that the Bridgestone 71Rs would be faster by about .5 seconds a run (verified by SCCA testing) but I was willing to give up that time as I am new to the sport and I expected that the Star Specs would last twice as long as the 71Rs. After a year of auto crossing that is exactly what happened. The Star...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

I purchased these tires as a replacement for the Goodyear Eagle RS-As that were on the car previously. I tend to drive gently and sit in traffic most days...I need a quiet, smooth tire with good traction for less than 70MPH situations. This General Tire has filled the purpose so well, at such an affordable price ($110/tire) that I am BEYOND THRILLED! I'm so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

These are very ordinary tires; performance is adequate, cold weather and snow capabilities are at best marginal. Most of my driving is in rural Bucks County Pennsylvania where the roads are ill-maintained and difficult to negotiate. The MKZ Hybrid is perfectly balanced due to the weight of the battery in the trunk, but these tires disappoint under most...  Read More

Looks With Performance to Match

Few names in the tire industry conjure up as many images of high-performance driving like BFGoodrich. With a racing pedigree that reads like the world's coolest resume, there are few companies that understand performance better. With their most recent entry into the Ultra-High Performance All-Season category, the g-Force COMP-2 A/S, BFGoodrich engineers...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I own a 2013 Mustang V-6 I opted to get a larger set of tires as to get better traction in the snow and rain in Philadelphia, Pa. I was hesitant to get these tires as I'm a very aggressive driver and pull very sharp turns. I relied on the Pirelli P Zero Nero Tires which were great but the ride was harsh in the many potholes in Philadelphia. I drive 37600...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Mustang Covertible - quick with 6 speed manual transmission so I want a lot out of a tire. The Pirillis Zero Neros I had were loud, rough and poor wear. Tire Rack guy steered me toward the new Continentals tires. He was 100% correct they are Pure and nearly perfect. Yes I may have given a little on performance handling but I gained a lot in getting my wife...  Read More

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

Hey Guys,I just wanted to share my experience with this amazing Michelin product. I own a modified 2014 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 which dyno-tuned at 413hp@407tq. Previously, I purchased Mickey Thompson Street Comp 255/40/19 & 295/35/19 tires about 4 months ago, an extreme summer performance tire. Well the tires were great if you are a road course/autocross...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The Michelin PSS is an amazing tire, and worth the money. I went with the stock size, 235/50/R18 for the Mustang GT. Compared to my stock BF Goodrich KDW, they made a completely different car. It turned my sloppy muscle car into Porche. However after 7,000 miles, they're already past the wear bars. I do drive it pretty hard in daily driving, and do 2 - 3...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I cannot speak to the longevity of this tire but I'll assume that the majority of people looking at this tire are much more interested in performance than longevity anyways. To put it simply, I LOVE these tires!! I was very pleasantly surprised with the wet traction capabilities even before I was able to really test them at the track. I run what they call...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I purchased these tires when my OEM Yokahoma tires were worn out. I was told that these were great tires, as they are OEM for BMW's and other high line cars. I was highly disappointed. Within the first 18 months, one tire began cracking, I guess from the Florida sunshine, had to be replaced. Numerous times after a light rain, I would fine my Mustang...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

Do you want to go fast in an SCCA Solo class requiring 200TW tires? If you do, then buy this tire if it fits on your car. These are simply the best tires for autocrossing you can buy this year for SCCA CAM, Street or Street Touring classes. I have a set mounted on 10.5 inch rims on my Mustang competing in the CAM-C class. Pretty much everyone driving...  Read More

As we saw for ourselves at Willow Springs, Ford has done an awewsome job with brand new S550 2015 Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack! As you can see in the video, the driver had a great lap, but even the best cars can desire more grip. How about swapping on some custom fit closeout matte graphite 20x10 ET40 Hotckis Y-Sports on Extreme Performance Summer...  Read More

New Lightweight Track Wheel from MOTEGI RACING

Anyone who has spent a Saturday at an autocross event or a road course knows that lighter is better. Lighter is especially better when referring to unsprung weight. Unsprung weight is anything not supported by the suspension of your vehicle such as wheels, tires and brakes. As one of the best bang-for-your-buck upgrades, a set of dedicated lightweight...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

OEM Tires on my 2013 Mustang with Track Pack. 3.73 rear end with 420hp. I drive 70 miles round trip per day. 2/3 highway. I only expected to get 20k miles out of the tires based on reviews, and am very pleased that I have 29k on them and a few more to go. I drive hard - acceleration, braking, and cornering, but if you don't light them up, they will hold up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have survived seven PA winters using performance all-season tires but knew it was just a matter of time before my Mustang got stuck and left me out in the cold. I did my research and opted for a set of WS80 Blizzaks for my factory rims and purchased a set of new wheels / tires for the rest of the year.My previous set of tires were Michelin Pilot Sport A/S...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

A great snow tire at a reasonable price. Went to smaller width/higher profile on speed3 & did great through this tough winter. Also put a set on my daughter's Mustang & made a huge difference.   Read More
