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 Continental ExtremeContact DW

These Continentals have been the best tire I've put on my Civic in the 7 years I've had it. They were very well balanced from the factory and require little balancing on installation, especially compared to the Khumos I had which were really bad in that respect. Wet performance is night and day from regular all-season tires. I live in a state where we don't...  Read More

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

Purchased the Pilot A/S 3 91V-rated to replace ContiPro Contact SSR 91H run flats. I carry a spare in the trunk.Conti lasted about 25-30k and were gone. Run flats give you piece of mind but they were noisier than Pilot - I noticed it from the beginning I installed these on. Pilots are also provide a softer ride over small bumps and anomalies on a road; Conti...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

This is an excellent tire. My first priorities were traction (safety), noise, then comfort. This tire delivers as advertised. I feel like I got a lot of performance in all weather conditions for the cost. My confidence level while driving with this tire is second to none. This tire has rescued me from a couple of close calls both in the rain and on dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

Admittedly this is the first sports car I've owned so I can't compare to other tires. Bought my car two months ago and immediately put these on for the NY winter. Combined with all wheel drive the traction overall is amazing.I went with these performance winter tires vice the regular ones because although there is plenty of snow here, the majority of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z III

I am on my 2nd set of these tires and will be purchasing a 3rd real soon. Tirerack reviews led me to this tire, as well as it's price. I live in South Louisiana, so I see lots of heat, rain, and absolutely zero snow, so summer tires is all I need. The Mazda3 is known to have a harsher ride than most, due to it's performance oriented suspension, so regardless...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP

This car has the sport suspension upgrade. I love summer tires on a BMW. This is not a sports car, but I love driving it; the steering response is incredible. N/A on the snow performance, as I have snow tires on it three months out of the year. Keep in mind my 7 rating on ride comfort is compared to other run flats and the snow tires. The excellent noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Put these inexpensive tires on my 1986 Ferrari because I wore out the Pirrelis in about 7,000 miles. The tires are a delight. It took me awhile to get used to the superb ride but got used to it.Tracking, as you might expect from the tread pattern with three center ribs is about as good as you can get. Corner tracking is also exellent. The tires are not quite...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Tires are as good as I hoped they would be when installing them 6 months ago. They are super grippy and responsive for an all season tire, but the tread seems to be holding up well and they are SOOO quiet and comfortable, which is great for cars with a stiffer suspension. I try not to drive this car when there is a chance of snow so I cannot comment on snowy...  Read More

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

Well, I own a CTS-V Coupe (Daily Driver and Track Car) that originally came with Michelin PS2's, which are great tires (OE). I have had my V on the local track on both sets of tires and the Bridgestones are fantastic in their own right, not to mention the price. I have run both tires up to 179 mph without any stability, pressure or temp issues. What I really...  Read More
