Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival

I had BFG G-Force Rivals now on my cars since they first came out in 2013. I originally had them on a 2007 Ford Focus that was my daily driver and weekend autoX car. They made such a huge difference in the cars handling both at autoX event and in everyday driving as well lasting for two years (used in months of Apr-Oct) that I opted to get a set for my 2010...  Read More

I have a 08 Mustang GT with only 12K miles on her. Its primarily used as a promotional/show car for my business, Westside Powder Coating, Romulus Michigan. I have done some modifications, one is replaced the factory 17 rims with 19 Ford Racing Track Pak rims. Theses tires 255/50/19 fit beautifully. They really fill up the wheel wells nicely. They replaced...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

Drive only HPDE Mustang 2011 with a full roll cage. Like to drive in both the rain and dry this is why I bought a extreme performance street tire. This is a fantastic tire for track use, I have driven 14 track days on this same tire with very little wear and it looks like it has a fair amount of life in it yet. Have been to tracks such as Road America,...  Read More

Best Replacement Performance Tires for Your Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang has been an American icon since its introduction over 50 years ago. With the 2011 model year, Ford brought back the legendary 5.0 moniker that was made famous in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The new 5.0 was rated at 412 hp and 390 ft./lbs. of torque. This popular GT model is typically equipped with a tire size of 235/50R18. However, we...  Read More

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

After Driving with these for 2 years I love this tire they are the smoothest most responsive all-seasons I've ever owned. My favorite part about them is the way they take the highway, when I switch from my winter set, it does not feel like the same vehicle. Let me say however, they need to get removed when the snow falls. Living in Massachusetts, these tires...  Read More

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
