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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I use these only during spring through fall, and put on four Blizzaks for the winter. With only 6500 miles so far I'm not sure I can accurately address the durability/tread life of the tires, but generally speaking I'm pleased with them. They seem to have plenty of grip in both wet and dry conditions though I tend to spin one wheel very slightly (I don't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

This is the second set of super sports for the car. They are the best tire i have ever driven on hands down. Period!!! It does everything equally well. I can not see my self buying anything else for my present car or future ones. When i get a new car and if it does not come with super sports then they will be installed as soon as possible! Finished! End of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R

Well this is a quick update. I just fitted these tires on a brand new set of 17x9 RPF1 wheels to be used for spirited driving in canyons and on the track. I did a quick Sunday night shakedown of this new package and alignment, and thus far everything is golden. Alignment - Camber - Front -2.8L/-2.7R - Rear -2.4L/-2.2R Toe in +.06 Front / +.01 RearFTG Front -...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

These Pirelli P Zero tires came as the OEM tire on my Maserati GT-S. When it was time to get a new set of tires I read all the reviews and the Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires where overwhelming better rated than the Pirelli's so I thought I would try them. Unfortunately the Michelin Pilot SS have a very soft sidewall for a performance tire. Given the more...  Read More

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

I have never owned Pirelli tires before and was skeptical but purchased these based on TireRack reviews.These tires are amazingly quiet! All I could hear was the engine and my radio. Very impressive. Fuel economy improved also. These tires handle well under normal driving conditions. We kept them on last winter to see how they handled a Canadian winter. We...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA11

These tires replaced older Michelins and so far I'm impressed with everything about them! I have the same type of tire on my new Dodge Grand Caravan. It came from the factory that way and I really liked them on the van. So decided to try them on my Honda Civic and they seem great to me especially for the price!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

I am not quite sure what tires the previous people are riding on, but that is not my experience. I bought my 2014 Hyundai Veloster Turbo two years ago brand new. I have driven this car very hard and whatever the car could give I took it. With that being said, I have driven in heavy rain with no problems and well above the posted speed limits. I have taken...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico

The Pirelli Asimmetrico Scopion Zero 275-45 R20 110H came standard on my 2015 Q7 S package. These tires are fantastic on the highway, I have just over 32,000 miles and ready for a new set. Great tire !!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

I love these tires!!! 22,000 miles and hardly no wear! My last Ram came with Goodyear Wranglers which lasted 31,000 miles before I picked up a razor blade on the highway and destroyed one. The tire store recommended these and I couldn't have been happier. After 5,000 miles I traded trucks and I insisted they swap the Goodyears on the new truck for these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have a history with these tires, and worked out a deal to have them installed when I purchased the car. I actually still have two of the original tires and two replacements(DWS06), because of a lot of potholes and road work being done in the Albany NY area. I love the car and the tires, and when Mazda starts building the Mazdaspeed 3 again, will replace...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

I live in East Central Florida where the roads are blistering hot and the monsoon-like rains are a common occurrence for the late spring and summer months. I commute at 80-85 mph for an hour and a half each day in some of the worse wet weather and hazard filled (tourists, old retirees, young females with cell phones) conditions known to man.These tires give...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

WOW! Bought this MDX-SH/AWD brand new in April of 16', had Acura's before but this was my first luxury ride...I'm on the highway 85% of the time so need something I can count on! These Michelin's performed way above my expectations as I have over 58,000 miles and can get probably another 10k, unreal....I know!I read those other reviews and have to scratch my...  Read More

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

Let me start by stating that I have not autocrossed or tracked my car. I use my car purely for spirited canyon driving, but that was not an option to select.My first set was in oem ap2 sizing (215/245) on oem wheels. My previous two sets of tires were re-11a, and every tire before that was the oem re-050. I now have ~110k miles of driving on the car, with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone FR740

This tire was oem 215/45/17 on my new Corolla. I just performed the 5k rotation myself and wish to post my observations. I got this car to supplement a 2004 Corolla with 70 series tires as my comparison. The biggest change I noticed was ride quality . The 45 series is excellent and has no road noise that bothers me. The car is quiet at freeway speeds to...  Read More

Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+ Might Be the New King of the Hill

We had the opportunity to take the test BMWs on the track this week to test some of the brake pad offerings from Hawk. There were a few options that offered braking bite and quietness for different applications. But more on that later, because the unintended star of the day may have been the tires that were used for the test. For a stop-and-go performance...  Read More
