Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

Came OEM on my car. Great traction in wet and dry. 8 track days and 8600 miles and still plenty of tread. I am impressed by the mileage for a high performance tire. Tons of grip on the track, predictable slip with appropriate level of sound feedback and feel through the steering. I hear how great Michelin's are but I competed at an auto cross against a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport

I purchased a set of these tires for my '88 Toyota Supra in staggered sizes: 235/45R17 Front, 255/40R17 Rear My car is summer only, and used as a fun car and not a daily driver. I wanted a set of performance tires that weren't so expensive that I would feel bad doing a track day, auto-x, or a smoky burnout. These tires fill that gap quite well.There's no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Nothing brings out the performance of your auto more than a good set of tires. With 45,000 miles on them, the OEM tires were getting noisy and starting to wear unevenly (a given with BMW rear tires). Time to buy tires and get back to Bridgestone.I have tried several other brands over the years but nothing performs like the And just when you think they have...  Read More

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

Replaced Eagle GT A/S after 25k miles, shouldn't have waited so long, as these completely transformed the car for the better. In dry performance up there with dedicated Summer tires, wet traction, handling and braking are one of best tires I've ever owned.Recent ice storm here in DFW demo'd winter capabilities. Was able to get around, alebeit cautiously,...  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

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

These are excellent performance summer tires with emergency all season ability. I would not buy them and plan to drive in snow.I purchased these tires as dedicated summer tires, as I typically run X-Ice on winter wheels. I put them on bright and early in the spring, since they are advertised as all season tires. My initial impressions were great. Dry / wet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3

I've used this set on 2 different cars for 3 winters. In the first two with the 335i coupe they were great. Very good in any kind of snow...light, deep,slush, ice. Once I put these tires on my 135is there was a noticeable difference. They have 8/32nds left and they feel like they aren't dealing with the snow well anymore. This could be because of a number of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII

This tire is bordering on R-compound-like performance, but in a streetable summer tire. Dry performance is simply astounding, and even in extremely heavy rain, these tires were more composed than anything I've ever driven in - at freeway speeds where other cars had to slow down due to the standing water, these never hydroplaned once.Treadwear does not appear...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I have about 2000 miles on these tires on my WRX so far. My driving has been highly varied, with lots of highway miles and lots of canyon carving, mostly in very cool, sub-40* weather. Frankly these tires have exceeded my expectations so far, to the extent that i'm not sure i'll go back to summer tires when the season arrives if i'm not doing autoX. Overall...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

These are the OEM tires that came on my 2013 VW JSW TDI. I purchased this vehicle about 2 months ago and have driven about 2,700 miles since then. I am running these at 35 psi, which is the VW recommended pressure. This is my first vehicle with a 17 wheel and 45 aspect ratio, as well as my first experience with Continental auto tires.I have found this tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

These tires replaced the original equipment manufacturer Firestone Affinity tires on this vehicle. The Firestone's had 2 of the rear tires experiencing some belt separation problems, including excessive premature edge wear issues at 20,581 miles for a tire that has a tread wear warranty of 50,000 miles. The original equipment tires were rotated every 5,000...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I was looking for a replacement for the all season tires on my car. I wanted a performance tire and I couldn't find my first choice in 19 (Hankook Ventus R-S3). I am very pleased so far with the RE-11. Super quiet, smooth ride, and sticky for autoX. With a tread wear of 200, I am hopeful for a decent lasting performance tire. Thanks Tire Rack!   Read More

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

I purchased these tires used from a friend who is a very reputable auto mechanic. I didn't know whether they would be very good to run in the winter as the tread was down to only about 25%. However after going through one of the worst winters here in Wisconsin. I was very surprised how well they performed. I would have preferred more tread but they pulled me...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

My car came oem equipped with 225/50/17 tires. To give my car a better 'stance', I up'd the tires size to a 55 series so the 'fender-to-tire' distance wouldn't be so large. In doing so, the Optimo727 was my pick of choice since it was a well rated cheap tire that had good wear numbers. Boy am I glad I did! The factory Michelin tires couldn't even start to...  Read More

Since I have put these tires on the weather in Michigan has been BRUTAL . extreme cold , deep snow , ice .. everything you can think of . Now back to wet right around freezy temp . I am blown away by the performance of these tires & I have had them on various vehicles for 10 + years . Maybe 4 + sets on trucks , SUV's etc . Yes the Audi has AWD but it is not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

I have this tire on all family vehicles and three vehicles of my adult children on wheels using from December through March in Iowa. Your surveys indicate it is either tied for superior to any and all other winter tires you sell and I would strongly agree with those surveys. I have used this tire for so many years the it used to be named Winterfire. I have...  Read More

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

Tires were purchased to maintain the handling potential of the car. The tires are not smooth, that said, the suspension of the car contributes to the roughness of the ride. I am perfectly satisfied with the ride and expect such a ride with the car and the superior handling tires. I purchased the tires after they were discounted after a newer model was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax HP

I have always prefered a Michelin tire, and have had great service from them over the years. The prices are high, and I have wondered if part of that is paying for the name? A few years ago, we purchased a new truck with General tires on it, and the tires performed flawlessly. In fact those 11 year-old Generals were are currently on a farm trailer, and show...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII

I just got back today from using these for auto-x on my 93 Corvette with Z07 suspension and aggressive alignment. These tires just plain work, even on a heavy car in cold/wet/dry conditions. It was actually snowing and later got up around 45 or a little less. I kept pace (within a couple tenths or so) with near FTD C5Z06 (Hoosiers, not good at all in those...  Read More
