Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Riken Raptor ZR

I haven't driven much on this tire (1 month) to be hit up for a review but so far--no disappointments. Raptors are reasonably quiet and have done well in all conditions--no drama even on cold bare roads after a minor wet snowfall. Seeing as how these are made by Michelin, I was not surprised at how well these performed--especially for a tire costing less...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Brand new set of 4 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus 215/55 R17 as of May 10, 2017 installed on our 2014 Nissan Juke SV. We will periodically update our review as the miles add on. These tires replaced OEM Goodyear RS-A that lasted 51,000 miles. We were looking for a tire with a better warranty, improved wet performance for our Florida living, and a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I'm a spirited driver and previously came out of the Michelin Pilot Super Sports, which was a fantastic performing tire in itself, but the most noticeable change with the new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S is an improvement in the ride quality and harshness from the tire when hitting impacts in the road and the dry handling responsiveness and cornering stability....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 N-Spec

If you are looking for a performance winter tire. This is it. I've used normal winter tires on a Honda Civic before and i hated the handling and the noise and the grip in the rain and dry wasn't that great. With my performance package Mustang GT, I knew i wanted to maintain the sporty handling that the car had on the factory Pirelli P-Zero Maximum...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I rarely write reviews, but felt compelled to do so for this tire.Just replaced my Ecsta Platinums with another set after 61K miles! I've rarely gotten more than 40K out of a set of tires before they started having problems - and never remember over 50K. 95% highway miles - and while I'm not aggressive with the tires, I'm no Sunday driver either. Rotated...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Bought these tires to replace the OE Bridgestone tires on my '13 Highlander after 50K of city/hwy combined driving. OE Bridgestone tires were okay, but I was looking for a better all season tire for all types of driving here in eastern PA.Reviewed all of the TR testing and reviews and decided to go with these Michelins. After 7,500 miles of fall, winter, and...  Read More

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

This Volvo S90 shipped with summer Pirelli P Zero tires on 20 wheels, but we needed all season tires and there aren't many choices in this size. We knew the 20 wheels and summer tires would be a problem when we bought the car. We tried to find a 19 option, but that didn't work and instead we arranged for Volvo to install Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+ tires,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

With only a few thousand highway and city miles on these tires, i don't have a huge long term opinion on these tires. From what I've experienced so far, I'm not all that wowed. The tires don't have many drawbacks, if any, but surely don't exude any flavorful characteristics either.With regards to comfort, these tires are fairly quiet in almost...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

Installed on a 2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i AWD. In upstate NY/ Northern NY we have true all season weather, and I think these tires handle it very well, especially for the price! Had no balancing issues after the first mount and balance. The only thing I have slightly noticed is when it's cold outside (sub-freezing to freezing temps) the tire gets a slight flat...  Read More

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

I have been a Michelin tire advocate in the past and these are the first OE Bridgestones I have kept on a vehicle. I have been extremely pleased with them. Over all performance catagories the tires, for the replacement cost, are better than Michelin tires. As a retired police officer I can attest to the Bridgestone tires performance in aggressive driving,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

The best tires I've purchased as far back as I can remember! I purchased these tires based on the high reviews I saw on this website and they seem to be accurate because I noticed incredibly improved performance the moment I drove on them. I drive hard and fast and these tend to squeal less on hard acceleration compared to previous tires I've used. In the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Downsized from stock Conti 5P in 235/35/19 to these 4S in 245/40/18. Wanted to add some sidewall for additional rim protection. Wasn't prepared for how quiet and smooth the ride became. Took the new shoes to Deals Gap and Tail of the Dragon where they performed way too well in 40 degree wet weather for a summer tire. Once the weather got to more appropriate...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I mean this tire speaks for itself, my car came with Dunlop run-flats which are complete garbage so having had a spare winter wheel/tire set up for the car, I opted to install summer tires for my OEM Rays Eng. performance package wheels. The car feels like a completely different animal, the steering response is great (though I have electronic steering) but...  Read More

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

I have approximately 52,000 miles on these tires and they have performed well on our Touareg. I plan on replacing these tires with the same tire at approximately 60,000 miles. I live in Louisiana and I usually replace my tires a little earlier due to the constant rain. Hydroplaning is not an option when driving on the Causeway.   Read More

New Wheels for 2017 Subaru BRZ with Performance Pack Brembo Brakes

I was hoping to convince Tire Rack management to cover the cost swapping my 2015 Subaru BRZ for a 2017 Subaru BRZ with the Performance Pack. This would give us quick access for a car to test fit and I get the newest BRZ. Of course they didn't go for that, but we have updated our website with compatible wheels for the 2017 Subaru BRZ with Performance Pack...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

After a lot of thought and looking at reviews I decided to replace the tires I had on my Audi it came with Goodyear's. The price for those tires was like 198.00. I looked around for a good high performance summer tire and these BF Goodrich tires looked like they fit the bill. The only thing that worried me was they said that under 50 mph there was road noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I did quite a bit of research on the available tires for my TT Roadster before I purchased. I have had some good success with sets of Conti's in previous years. However, when the tires wear down they are very noisy. This is what I was trying to avoid. So other than performance I wanted quiet I swore in the past that I would never buy Firestone's from...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

OE equipment, almost 94k miles on the original tires... what more can I say? In Oklahoma we have all kinds of driving conditions, ice, rain, snow, extreme heat. 4 years on the tires and zero complaints. Really good traction in ice/snow/rain. Dry roads the tires seem a little hard (can spin easier) Can slide a little if you take a corner too fast. BUT, they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

I bought my car lightly used with 32000 kilometers on it which translates to roughly 20,000 miles. When I got it it had the Pirelli P6 Four Seasons tires which, until I got these installed, I thought were pretty good. With the P6 4S I found turn-in and general cornering stability a little sloppy which I attributed to not having the sports suspension on the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

TireRack's assessment that this tire could be the new standard in the UHP category is a very valid assertion. When car makers produce a vehicle, one of the major considerations is the tires that will deliver overall handling of the model. For my Jaguar XJ8, this specific tire knocks it out of the park for the proper handling, ride comfort and performance...  Read More
