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

Bought set of Michelin Defender LTX MS this time. Prior tire purchases for our Tahoe include Michelin Latitude Tour, and Goodyear Fortera Silent Armor. Smooth and quiet being most important quality for our cars. I can say that all three of these tire models perform very similar, all very smooth and quiet. I probably would have bought second set of Fortera...  Read More

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

My 2015 Boxster S came with 20 inch Pirrelli P Zero Max Performance Summer Tires. They provide satisfactory performance when its sunny and hot. When the temps start to drop in the spring and fall they become a poor tire, with increase in road noise and ride discomfort. So after some research I bought a set of Oz Racing Leggera HLT rims with the BF Goodrich...  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 BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

I bought a 2008 Infiniti G37S a couple moths ago. Love it! It needed new tires to pass MD inspection, so the dealership provided a set of Yok Advan Sport A/S for no additional charge, and they were fine. Unfortunately, with these 19 wheels, the very low aspect ratio looked like trouble in real life situations, since the rims stuck out beyond the sidewall, so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

The tires were great at first, But after about 15,00 they became unbearably noisy. They were so loud I thought I must have a bad wheel bearing. I just had my car inspected and was shocked to find out that it wouldn't pass because of the tires, The tires only had 18,500 miles on them. They were rotated every 5K and wore evenly, just wore out. These tires were...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

These Michelins were OEM when we bought the car new. We now have 62000+ miles on them with over 50% of original tread remaining. At about 55,000 miles I began to hear some growling coming from the right front and thought it might be the wheel bearing pack. Before changing out the bearing pack I rotated the tires ahead of schedule and the noise moved to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (W-Speed Rated)

Driving a hot rod Dodge Challenger with a 5.7L Hemi can go through tires in a hurry!!!haha I went through 2 other types of high performance tires quickly which only lasted around 18,000 miles each set. No I do not punch it, burn rubber or race it. I went through 2 sets just on highway commuting. I purchased Goodyear Eagle Sport A/S 245/45 20 103W. Best...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE050 RFT

These tires came new on my 2015 MX5 Grand Touring. I love the handling that they provide in the twisties and the highway ride is surprisingly smooth and quiet. I do not autocross my car, nor do I drive it in foul weather if I can avoid it. For my spirited backroad driving and vacation use, these Bridgestones are excellent. We took our car on a 2300-mile trip...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

These tires were warranted for 90,000 . I got 78,000 out of them before they were basically bald. They were really good until this last couple of months, because obviously bald tires don't have the greatest traction. I just bought a new set, and I remembered how great these tires felt to drive on when they aren't bald :-)   Read More

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

4th set of BFG KO's and these KO 2's are the best. Seem to last longer than original KO's and new designs are great. Will always replace my tires we BFG.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I changed out the factory run flats on our X6 almost immediately as it came with high performance summer tires (I will never understand that for cars going to snow prone areas). I didn't want to sacrifice performance for winter capability and I didn't want two sets of tires (though I understand the argument). I only had one other experience with Conti's and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Run Flat

These OEM tires on my 2013 MINI Cooper S Paceman have the same grip now that they're close to 38K miles as they did when new and they remain as quite and comfortable, too. I've maintained the PSI at 36 on all tires throughout the last two and a half years. Tires are down to 3mm with a bit of life in them still. Now it is time to shop for new tires and I'm...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS

Got just over 30k miles on this tire. I was very impressed with these initially. They felt a bit softer than the ultra High performance OEM tire but that was expected for a touring tire. Generally they gave me best of both worlds, performance and ride quality. My biggest disappointment is the tread wear. According to my dealer the fronts are at 3/32 and the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These tires were rated no:1 when I was looking for new tires for the X3 and since I already had them on a 03' 330i ZHP, I decided to get them. Having all wheel drive and some considerable clearance on the X3, theses tires perform better than expected. It was like driving on regular road when driving in 4-5in. of snow. They are quiet, has an incredible ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

So far after a new 4-tire purchase and a 400 mile trip in hot weather, there and back, and they have been great in a heavy minivan. Nice and quiet. I drove up to 80 mph in a sto-n-go grand caravan with 3 adults one child and cargo, loaded up. Tires are great so far.   Read More

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

Although I only have 150 miles on my new tires I have to say these are the best tires ive ever owned! Im shocked how even in the pooring rain these tires grip like no other, and dry traction is incredible. These tires give you the confidence to take corners at high speeds and not worry about the back end spinning from underneath you (rwd cars). Road noise is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I've used these tires on several vehicles. Always a good experience. I do believe the new M/S-2's are not as good as the originals. Tread wear doesn't seem as good, needed more balance weights than earlier models. I suspect they are cutting costs.   Read More
