Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

Hankook Optimo H727 tires only lasted 22,672 miles and about a year and a half. Noticed right away that the Optimos felt like driving on marbles. I replaced them with Michelin Defenders and the Michelins seemed to have a much better grasp of the road, and felt more secure.May 9, 2012 I purchased 4 Hankook Optimo H727 Tires from Tire Rack. These tires are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A

These tires came OEM with my G37S, and I must say, very disappointed with these in the wet weather (which ----s because I live in florida). Dry traction is phenomenal, but considering the price on these [even as a 8 year employee with Nissan, service manager] I will definitely go with the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. From day one, off the lot, they ----ed on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Wow! Continental has a home run with these tires. Comfort: The tires are much quieter than I expected for a high performance tire. They are no louder than the Goodyear RSA's that were OEM. The car is much more comfortable now over bumps. Before, I got a sharp impulse bump over uneven manholes, etc; now the bumps have a smooth flow with a lower amplitude to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A

Ok, this is actually the first time I do an online review, because these tires deserve it. First off, I have a 2011 Nissan versa that came with ContiProContact 185/65 R15 (Horrible tires: very noisy, poor performance, and the rubber started cracking at around 20K miles.I replaced the four tires with the BF 195/65 R15 and I feel the difference right away....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

Just (2 days ago) traded in my wife's 2005 Nissan Altima, with 141,875 miles. While cleaning out the glove compartment, I found the receipt for the purchase, in April 2008, of the set of four tires that were on the car at the time I traded it in.

Lightweight Wheels for Your Nissan GT-R

20" wheels are heavy. As we know, weight is the enemy of performance and it is especially marked in the form of unsprung weight. Unsprung weight is everything not supported by your vehicle's suspension like your wheels, tires and brakes. Decreasing unsprung weight will make your vehicle brake, corner and accelerate more efficiently. Opinions vary, but a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

We were so impressed with our first set of Altimax RT43 tires that we purchased another for our Jetta TDI. The car is mostly driven by my wife 120 miles/day commuting to work. With the winter we've had so far we've had little snow to deal with but again these tires didn't disappoint. Traction is great in the snow when combined to the TDI's DSG transmission....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

Best tires I've owned thus far. Has stiffer side walls and aggressive deep treads that look like they can seriously grip. On the road, handling and cornering is superior than my OEM touring tires created from the same brand. Had thick snow for a couple days in a week in michigan and these tires gripped well in it. I rarely slide unless I do it intentionally...  Read More

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

Very impressed, I bought these tires so i did not have to change out from a summer tire to a winter one and the reputation of the previous generation of BFG AT's. I drive a combination of Canadian 2wd Highway commute, 6x12 dirt bike trailer pulling and 4wd trail driving with the trailer with a Nissan X Terra 6M Off Road. These tires have exceeded my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HP2

I recently purchased a full set of Hankook Dynapro HP2 tires to replace the OEM Bridgestone Dueler's on our 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum in 20 P235/55R20. The OEM tires lasted about 30,000 miles with regular rotation ever 7,500 miles. I was a little skeptical about the Dynapro HP2 but have to say, after driving them in the dry, rain and in some light New...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A

I am 29 years old. I drive a Nissan Xterra. I am aggressive (safely) when I drive. These tires have been great. 90% of the time, I am on highway/city roads. I also drive to and through some cool places off/road. I would definitely purchase these tires again, the reason that I will not be is because I have to drive a lot on the highway. These tires are great...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Approximately a year ago I replaced the OEM (Continental Contipro) with the SERENITY PLUS on my 08 NISSAN ATIMA. They perform way better than the original Continentals. On dry roads they grip the road very well when making emergency movements. On wet roads, the tires disperses the water a lot better than the original tires at highway speeds. Hydroplaning is...  Read More
