Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Not cheap; but appears to be an excellent value for the money. Ride is quiet and really smooth. Less noise than I experienced on the LTX M/S and LTX M/S2 that I put on my '03 Expedition. These are on my daughter's'06 Pacifica, which is a much lighter vehicle. It's really too early to judge; but treadwear is not noticeable after 5K miles. Wet and Dry Handling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

I can't even tell you how great these tires perform, I'm an extremely spirited driver and I have yet to find a corner in my city to make these tires squeal. Lateral stability is worlds above anything I've ever run and they drive silky smooth like a grand touring all season. Put these on my low-profile summer rims and expecting the ride to be stiff as a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

These tires perform as week as they did when they were new. I have 8/32s tread depth on all for corners. When they were installed I immediately notice a 10% increase in gas mileage. The ride quality and noise were great and only the ride quality has fallen a little due to the decrease in tread depth. I take this car all over the USA from Wisconsin to South...  Read More

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

I'm impressed with the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 even though I have only driven less than 500 miles. I agonized over the performance/cost trade-off with my previous replacement tire favorite, the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. The entire experience with Tire Rack was impressive - the customer service and the efficient transaction handling - plus setup for local...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

This set of Blizzard was installed 1 day before the only big snow storm in New York. After city snow removal, my van was buied in a 4 foot of packed snow/ice mixture. Took me 10 minutes to cleared my driver door entrance only, I was able to drove the van out of my spot. I only had 1 foot of spare room in front & behind my van. My neighbors were shocked to...  Read More

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

Hey Guys,I just wanted to share my experience with this amazing Michelin product. I own a modified 2014 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 which dyno-tuned at 413hp@407tq. Previously, I purchased Mickey Thompson Street Comp 255/40/19 & 295/35/19 tires about 4 months ago, an extreme summer performance tire.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

I drive a heavily modified 342whp/331wtq 03' Subaru Impreza WRX swapped to an Sti and I have a set of these in 235/40/18s mounted to Sparco Assetto Gara wheels. This is my daily driver and also my have a blast on the back roads car. They handle very well and have decent wet traction, but what I love about these tires so far has been how long they last. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Put on a new set of Michelin Primacy and our Volvo had ride problems with brand new Sachs Super Touring shocks. Tried Altimax RT43 and was better, but still a bit too harsh over RR tracks and potholes. Put on these True Contacts and the car rides well again, tough to do with the stiff V70/Sachs suspension. Traction both wet and dry is what one expects from...  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 Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

Bought these to replace OEM Continentals. Huge, positive difference. Felt like I'd installed a new set of shock absorbers/struts. They smooth out bumps and potholes, sidewall roll on turns is definitely minimized, reducing oversteer. Significant reduction in noise. Deep channeling maintains confidence in the wet, only hydroplaned when going way too fast for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I got these tires as warranty replacements for noisy Contiprocontacts that where loosing chunks or rubber on the shoulders at 500 miles. The Contipurecontacts offer great grip on dry surfaces and really grab on to the corners, they are firm, but bumps or potholes are absorbed without much jarring or shock. The one quality of these tires that I find...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

This is a great tire for Subaru's. I have high expectations and want to go more performance oriented(studded tires). However, I live in Michigan which does not allow studs so I went with Michelin X-ICE xI3. I always push my car hard whether braking hard on snow/ice and it does a pretty good job but I feel like it needs a little improvement on ice and on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

Recently purchased these tires and could not be any happier. After always running all-season tires, this is my first pair of dedicated winters. The Maine Winters are some of the country's harshest and so far they have performed exceedingly well. My development's roads were covered in a layer of ice and then we got fresh powder – which can be a nightmarish...  Read More

2005-2009 Mustang V6 owners, UPGRADE TO THIS TIRE FIRST BEFORE ANY OTHER HANDLING UPGRADES. This is the best performance value replacement tire and most profound handling upgrade for your car when upgrading to the 18-inch X 8.5/9 inch wheel.The lower profile and moderately stiff sidewall eliminates the bouncing and bounding of the stock 16-inch tire, and you...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

I purchased these in 1/9/09 so these have almost 4 winters on them. I purchased them because this is the car my bride drives 15 miles to work each day. One day I pulled out of my driveway with less than 2 of snow, (using 3 month old BS Turanza Serenity A/S tires. I was shocked the car had no control when starting from a stop; directing me toward the curb. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Car is lowered 2 w/ upgraded rear sway bar while keeping OEM shocks . I've been keen to improve the handling while keeping the car comfortable for daily driving and road trips. I ran a set of Douglas performance GT-H before this set (read bar was pretty low).Most notable difference has been improved ride quality, car is much quieter and smoother over bumps...  Read More

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

I am highly pleased with this tire. As always, any of us are hesitant at times of buying something new, especially tires. So many to choose from, and all at competitive pricing. Once our first good snow fell that was significant, 12 over night and a total of well over 2' in two days, i was shocked at how well these tires performed. Overall traction is...  Read More
