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

The Michelin Sport A/S 3+ are super sticky on 328i 2010 Sport suspension. I staggered tires to match sports package, which was not set up prior to used car purchase. The previous owner did the economic non sport setup where all tires were the same size. The new setup increases car performance in ways I love. It has improve my ride comfort (luxury-goes over...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

My set of tires are dedicated winter tires mounted on OEM wheels. I currently have approx 1200 miles of driving in my daily commuter - '17 Volt. As a winter tire, the snow and ice traction is way above and beyond compared to the all season LRR tires that came with the vehicle. Just had the first snow storm (didn't drive through it though) recently but did...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

These are my first set of winter tires and I can only compare them on the car to the summer performance tires that the car comes with. I've mostly driven AWD cars with all season tires in the past. I live in Buffalo, NY (insert joke about how much it snows here). I work in healthcare and need to be able to get to work everyday at weird hours. I bought these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Granted, I've only been on these for a day now, but it feels like I'm riding on couch cushions versus the bricks that were my all seasons. Unsurprisingly, these tires rated #1 in comfort in its class on TireRack. The softer compound definitely helps with every performance aspect. Road noise is comparably minimal since my ears are accustomed to the louder...  Read More

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

First off, I am no tire expert. Second, I have only driven these tires for 800 miles. Third, I am not a professional driver, I have never tracked a car, and I have never had any track/racing lessons. I live in New York City and do most of my driving on the weekends getting out of the city to either eastern Long Island or upstate New York. I seldom drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Winter Slalom KSI

I purchased these tires with wheels for winter driving in North East PA. I live in an area with lots of hills and I see plenty of people slipping and sliding and on rural roads where you don't have a lot of room before you are in the ditch. I really want to stop and turn and I believe winter tires are best for me where I live.I'm very happy with the Tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Purchased these tires last year, and have experienced everything from snow/slice/ice to dry pavement in them. They have exceeded my expectations in every possible way, and I consider them to be a major upgrade over the OEM Dunlops my car came with.I was a bit concerned going with an UHP All Season compared to a set of dedicated snow tires, but I wasn't let...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

OE tires, so expectations have been muted. They've been overall decent tires, fairly quiet on the highway, pretty good dry performance, but not really that good in wet or icy conditions. Compared to other tires I've experienced, they have a tendency to hydroplane. Snow and ice traction is average at best, and I've generally tried to avoid driving this car on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have driven on these tires for the last 3 months in (Oct-Dec) Wasilla/Anchorage, Alaska. We have had several Ice/Fog conditions and some snow with several cars that ran off the road. These tires have performed as well, if not better then the last 3 sets of Blizzaks that I have run on this car. I will say this- these tires are worthless until they warm up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I put Continental ExtremeContactDWS06 RS5 275/30/R20 on the rs5. This is the can be the best option on those cars. Especially in winter time. Good traction in -20 degree, and covered road conditions. Is not as well as Winter tires, but it can performed 85% of them. The only disadvantage is that you can not push the car to the limited as summer tires in...  Read More

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

Mixed feelings about this tire. 1st off I mainly track the car and drive it there with these same tires. Man does this tire grip. It's also very responsive with great feedback. I was able to out corner way better cars than mine because of the tire, complete transformation. The downside is they wear really fast. 3 track days and 3500 miles and they are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

The tires were O.E. on my new 2016 VW Golf Sportwagon. When I purchased the car I immediately got larger wheels and summer performance tires, purchased from Tire Rack, which I installed immediately . I swapped them back to the O.E. all-season Bridgestones in early Nov. with the arrival of colder weather. What a huge change for the worse! After driving about...  Read More

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

Had Michelin PSS for 18,000 miles. They were down to wear bars. Replaced with Pole Positions. Fabulousvride, low noise considering Max performance summer rubber. Overall handling is 95% as good as PSS. Wet traction is better than PSS, and ride quality is same or better. Car handles and tracks perfectly. Running factory psi specs of 35/36. Wear rate at 1,700...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

This is absolutely the BEST tire I have had on my 07 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. I drive a healthy mix of city and highway, on a winding mountain highway. Good tires are very important to me. I have had a whole host of tires on my Highlander over the years trying to find the promised land of durability, handling and ride comfort.Prior to the Continental...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

Love these tires. What I loved best about these tires were their wet road predictability. Its amazing how far you can push the limits of these tires. These tires will be replaced after this summer and that's where my dilemma comes in. With a number of tires that have been rated better than these do I replace with the same tires, the devil you know, or go...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I am one of the X-5 owners who suffered through a set of run flats that were on the car when I bought it. A year ago this month I bought a set of the Continental DWS's, but did not have them installed on the car until this past April.What a difference and delighted I bought them. These tires performed extremely well all summer. They are quiet, smooth, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These are my second set on a second car. On both cars i averaged about 50,000 miles each. Ive driven in various conditions to a foot of snow, 1/4 of packed ice, heavy rain and easy 120*F roads. Minimal issues in comparison to Hankook and Eagle tires i have also had. These DWS have outlasted all tires i have ever had. I had my car in Germany and ran them up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Any RDX owners out there know that this is a noisy CUV/whatever-they-call-it. When I bought the car last October it had mismatched off-brand tires and anything but the smoothest road felt like a washboard. Although I normally take a more performance-oriented approach to researching tires, I figured this time around I'd look for something that smooths out the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS

I hear so many people critique this tire and three things always come up: (1) treadwear,(2)wet traction and (3) price. First of all, this is my third set of the Eagle LS tire on two different cars. Both my cars are heavy luxury sedans that are made for performance. One is a 2000 Chrysler 300M, the other is a Cadillac CTS. Both cars are heavy in the...  Read More

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

These tires replaced the original Bridgestone Potenza's (high performance, summer) that came with the G37. They are a noticeable step up in performance, primarily in the wet, compared to the Bridgestones. They are also quieter, though that may not be an accurate comparison as the Bridgestones were at the end of their life compared to the new Michelin's. This...  Read More
