Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

I purchased these to replace the factory Continental ContiProContacts. These have a noticeably slower steering response and require more input around an exit ramp but nothing worth giving it a negative remark. I had expected this when reading reviews between this tire and the Primacy MXM4. I decided on these due to a slightly lower price but mostly due to...  Read More

My #FirstCarMoment

Michelin's new campaign has us going down memory lane to the time we got our first car. Whether it was handed down to you by your parents, or you worked a few jobs to earn it, none of us will forget the feeling of owning our first car. I got my first Jeep as a Christmas present back when I was in college and home visiting my parents. It was Christmas morning...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

This truck came with Goodyear Wrangler SR-A tires and they treated me well for 100,000 miles. My driving is 60% highway, 35% back country roads, 5% city. I kept them inflated to 40 PSI & got almost 20 mpg all around, experienced very little hydroplaning issues and thought they did very well in the snow, though I admit my lead-foot days are behind me, and I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

2013 was not a good year for me, in terms of getting through the winter. I had to park my 2011 370Z all winter and drive around my 2003 Ford Escape beater. I upgraded to the 2015 WRX STi in 2014 and with the news that 2014 will have bad snow season, I decided to get dedicated snow tires and wheels. I didn't want to break the bank, I decided to go with the...  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 Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

AWESOME! No kidding it drives like a 4 wheel drive Prius! Went on roads I would not have dreamed of and could not have gone on otherwise. The tires give great confidence in the control and braking of the car on snow. I was able to follow the 4wheel drives around the city on off beaten paths in two inches of snow today. I have not been able to do that in this...  Read More

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

Recently installed a set of Goodyear Eagle A/S on my 2009 Pontiac G8 GT and love them. The previous tires were Michelin Pilot Super Sports, they had good traction on dry, warm, smooth pavement, but rode rough, noisy and had a nasty habit of following every groove and rut in the pavement. Scary as -------- in the wet. Only got 20,000 miles out of them before...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

impressive! here in the northeast we get a lot of snow,but we are on dry roads [with ice left over] more often then not. swore off bridgestones years ago,due to poor dry handling [still good in ice/snow]. moved to conti ewc's which i consider a very well balanced snow,and excellent cornering in snow. conti didn't make a ewc in 245/40-18 [stock:255/35-19],so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I don't go off road, so didn't want all terrain tires. the stock Goodyear SRA's are just junk, very dangerous in rain, so I didn't even wanna see what snow would be like. I have always been a big believer in winter dedicated tires for winter months. Put the proper dedicated tires on for what the environment calls for, you only have 4 small contact patches of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These tires really performed well for why they were purchased. The RSX type-S is my work car and I commute right at 50 miles a day. I had also began to use the car to run SCCA Solo events. I was looking for a tire that would allow me to feel confident around the cones but provide some mileage. I was not fully hooked on Solo yet when I bought the tires so I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S

The best tire I have ever owned - I'm just sad I didn't find out about them sooner or that Michelin doesn't make them in a size for my current car. For this car, the oem tires lasted 20k miles and these went over 60k and were still OK when I sold the car with 80k miles. They saved me twice when I was going too fast in wet conditions and I thought for sure I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I bought these tires simply because the Michelin Super Sports were too pricey for me at the time, and this tire came second and was a few bucks cheaper. I'm not regretting these tires at all- however theres certain things about this tire that I wonder if I should have shelled out a couple more bucks for the Super Sports. When I first got these tires put on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar M/T Plus

I have good and bad to say. Traction is good on-road and great off-road. My concern is the mere 2 ply sidewalls for serious off road work. My fear proved true this weekend when an innocent looking stick blew out the sidewall from wheel to tread. Not sure exactly how it even happened. It was on a easy trail and the stick was loose, but somehow got...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Had the previous generation Verde (not Plus) on my previous Mercedes MLs. Moved up a size to the GL, and immediately after purchase took off the factory run-flat tires, replacing them with the Verde Plus. Extremely happy with them. I don't cut corners - the size is a touch too large (285 vs. 275) for the vehicle but that's part of what needs to be done. Ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I live in Los Angeles, CA. I mostly drive my car on LA's finest highways (*sarcasm*: Just imagine the terrible road conditions of the highways on the I-5, I-10, 60W, 60E, etc). Occasionally, I do drive on the streets with very frequent stop-and-go traffic.The weather here is mostly and on the off chance that there is rain, it's never higher than 4 inches at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I just bought a 2014 Ford F-150 Platinum truck 2 weeks ago, and I am now in the market to replace the OEM Pirelli Scorpion ATR's.Driving in the rain was interesting as the back-end would kick out on me from time to time. The rain was not overly hard, so I was a bit surprised. This should have set off red flags in my head, but I did not think too much about...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Coming off a set of Goodyear F1 Asymetical's, this is a night and day comparison....why Ford didn't have these as the OEM tire for the Focus ST is beyond me!!! These things claw at the tarmac and they raise the bar on overall performance for the type of tire it is. I used to be able to break traction to the front wheels easily with the F1's...even when brand...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Got a set of 4, WS80'S and rims off of Tire rack and everything came and fit just right . First snow 5-8 inches and I love the tires they stick to the road great. This is the first set of stud less snow tires I have ever owned and now I see what the fuss is about. The wife's front wheel drive Equinox handles better and gets going as good as my Z71Chevy 1/2...  Read More
