Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Bought this tire to use with my summer wheels in march 2013 and have been very happy with the ride comfort, steering response and grip on the road in dry and wet weather. This tire does have kind of a soft sidewall but as long as you don't hit potholes very hard you are ok. I switch to winter tires around November and it has taken it's first year worth of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

I have had my Trans Am for 8 years and have gone through 3 sets of Good year eagles fi gs ds or whatever they are calling them now. The ones with the aqua v shape tread. I would have purchased again this past August but for some reason good year dropped the ball. No one had them in stock ! Unreal ! I did find a local tire dealer but I wasnt going to pay...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

Replaced the factory equipped Bridgestone Turanza EL400's with the Potenza RE760's right out of the gate. Had the Turanza's on a 2012 Camry SE V6, and they were good for the first 10,000 miles...tops. Bought a set of wheels/winter tires since the Turanza's would've been junk in the snow. Since I now have the winter set, I wanted to give my new '15 Camry XSE...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

In a word: planted. That's how you feel when you take a curve at what would have been an unsafe speed when you still had lesser tires. I can't overstate what a great tire this is for the money. For less than $200 a tire, these are a steal. They transformed my Audi A4 quattro from a nice commuter sedan to a cornering beast. Cornering is now considerably...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

I have never been a huge fan of dunlop tires, I have always found them to be mediocre at best. However I decided to give these a go for my new car which just so happens to be a front wheel drive v8 monster. I questioned my decision to use an all season tire on this car and not dedicated summer and winter tires, but given the expense of running 255's in the...  Read More

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

This car notoriously wears tires out quickly. Especially at the inner edges of the tires. I completely burned through a new set of mushy & squealing DWS`s after one 1.5 summers. (I use winter tires) In this category of tire, we all want the best performance we can get with longevity. These tires are the perfect tire for this rear wheel drive car. Grip is...  Read More

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

I LOVE to drive. Enthusiastically. Hard. My car is not stock and should be putting out about 358 hp. These tires when new had exceptional grip for both acceleration and braking as well as cornering. I now find rear wheel spin fairly easy to achieve when TC is off. The car came with same size Dunlops that were quieter and had less rolling resistance though...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

- Only a person with lots of money to spend can afford to buy cheap tires, because when the tires fail or wear out prematurely, They can afford to go out and buy more tires. However, the average working person with a mortgage, car payment, children in school, braces, and the like, has to buy tires that will last, because they can't afford to go out and keep...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/T D687

I had to write this review because of all the negative reviews out there. These tires came with my Subaru Forester when I bought the car new in 2010. I have 89000 miles on them and there is still tread left. I have no complaints. I do check air pressure every month or two. I have gotten my tires rotated probably like every 15,000 miles. I have had one wheel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These tires were the 6th set and the longest lasting ones that I have had on my 2006 Honda Civic EX...they lasted 42,800 miles. The front tires could last me until winter, but I am going to go ahead and replace all four now since there is a $70 rebate. Previous tires have lasted 24,000-32,000. Civics are notorious for chewing up the rear tires due to issues...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek AT20

I'm gonna keep it short. I made 57K on these tires and I can't say anything bad. I live in Illinois so the weather here is unpredictable sometimes. I was surprised how well this tire performed in snow (All 4 wheel driving mode)The treadwear is 300 low but it helps out in winter. If you're more on the racing side this tire will wear out a lot quicker. Im not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Bridgestone Turanza EL 400 came stock on 2015 Lexus GS 350 F Sport. I knew the tire had an unusually stiff sidewall and was prone to flat spots because cars on the dealer's lot had flat spots when I test drove them. I expected to replace the Bridgestones come winter but the ride was just too harsh and I decided not to wait. These Bridestone tires are not...  Read More

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

Superb tires so far! Much better than the Yokohama Geolander AT's that I had. The Michelin LTX AT are fantastic on the asphalt and trails and provide near sedan-like handling on the road. They are stiffer than my Geolanders were, but that may be because they are new. So far after 5500 miles I can say the LTX AT's are: Great handling on pavement, wet or dry.Ve...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

Replaced the original Eagle LS-2's in April 2014 after 38,000 miles with H-rated Altimax HP's. Previous experience with them on two other cars left me impressed with their price-to-performance. A few weeks back, someone (not me ;) ) took out the two right side tires. Since the Altimax is now discontinued, they were replaced with these W-rated G-Max' and put...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-32

Cleveland, Ohio.Switched to dedicated snow tires years ago. I have had 3 cars in that time and every single one was fitted with dedicated wheels with Blizzaks on them. I had the WS70's, and the WS80's on my most recent 2013 Honda Accord. It handled better than most 4 wheel drive Jeeps I know. I recently turned in that lease and will be buying WS80's for my...  Read More

SPC Control Arms for Jeep JK: Part One

I made the mistake of off-roading and not checking the torque on my suspension components afterward, which over time wallowed out the threads on my adjustable rear upper control arms and caused a host of issues with my Jeep. With a lifted Jeep you have to make sure to check the torque on everything after abusing it. With the adjustment threads all wallowed...  Read More

Go Play in the Dirt with Method Rally Series Wheels

When I attended the DirtFish rally school, I noticed that the wheels on the school's Subaru WRXs were from Method Racing. We carried Method at that time, but did not have those wheels available. Now, less than a year later, here they are. The Rally Series wheels were developed by Method in partnership with Subaru's rally team, combining wheel industry...  Read More

The All-New 2016 Mazda MX-5 Tested on Our Track

As a longtime owner of a first-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata, I have been very excited about the upcoming 2016 model. The new 2016 MX-5 is often referred to by its production code "ND" in the automotive community as opposed to the previous generation 2006-2015 model's production code of "NC". The design of the new generation MX-5 has been impressing drivers...  Read More
