Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I replaced my well worn OEM Pilot Super Sports on my 2013 BMW M5 after 48,000 miles of average to spirited driving with another set of Pilot Super Sports. This car is mainly my commuter car and 90% of it is on smooth highway roads in NJ. The reason why I was able to extract more miles out of these tires even though they are propelling a 560 + HP and 500 +...  Read More

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

Great all around tire. There are certainly better tires for each season, but for snow and ice they are leaps and bounds better than the stock Dunlop Sport Maxx tires . If you live with snow on the ground for the majority of the winter, I'd go with a dedicated winter/snow tire, but if you only get 1-3 inches at a time then these do just fine.You will always...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport

Have this tire replace the oem P zero nero at 14000 miles, which is very noise! This Kumho is much better on noise level as well as performance compare to these OEM. I go for a plus size 215/40-17 instead of the stock size. On Tire Rack, these tire will not fit the Fiat Abarth or any other 500. But they do fit without rubbing on a stock rim. These tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A2

@ nearly 20k miles these tires have changed in personality quite a bit. They are currently at 6/32 depth for what just left the front and closer to 7/32 than 8/32 depth for the rears. In particular, the tire has changed drastically in the past 3k miles and I am sorry to say two of those are changes for the worse.The wet traction in general is now barely...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z II

I've driven about 3,000 miles on these tires and they grip nicely driving through 1-3 inch puddles during Chicago down pours and flash flooding. I can confidently pass cars at 30-40mph without losing steering response and grip due to hydroplaning. Stopping and acceleration has also improved on wet roads and during rain storms. No significant wear on thread...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

I put a set of these on my '85 Mazda RX7 with a 12a Rotary engine making about 100hp. A 205/50R16 is a big upgrade from the OEM 185/65R13 they mounted on this car in the '80s. Around the same time I also upgraded to Racing Beat springs and larger front and rear sway bars. I'm using the car to commute and attend track nights and it is a blast. Road noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2

I am reviewing PSC2 regarding performance on track during an HPDE. I was using the PSS2 tires that came on my 2014 Corvette. They are great tires and performed well on the track. The performance of the Sport Cup 2 tires is far superior to the Super Sports. I was able to carry more speed through the curves, and took more than 3 seconds off lap times compared...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I purchased these for my 2013 Mercedes S550 sport package with 20 AMG Wheels. So far they appear to have a very quiet, comfortable ride and don't feel as jarring or harsh over NJ road surfaces as my previous Michelin Pilot A/S 3 tire's. They feel good as far as high performance handling goes as I'm a spirited driver who leaves my car in sport mode...  Read More

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

Simply the best Autocross tire available with phenomenal dry grip once they are hot. Traction is pretty good in the wet on Autox though it's best to not drive them on the highway in the wet. The rubber is extremely soft - equivalent to a race compound. The added traction can give a good autocross driver a second or two off their times. Wear is high - I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

These tires are hands down the best in all around performance that I have experienced with this vehicle. The ride is smooth, with superior cornering and steering response, and very little cabin noise. The car glides through tight corners with virtually no body roll, excellent acceleration on straight runs, and a great ride response to the pavement. Many...  Read More

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

My experience is autoX and road/track events (HPDE, HSAX, etc), as well as extremely spirited around town driving. My S2000 is modified for SCCA's STR class, and has basic bolt-ons, coilovers, front sway bar. Running -2.2* camber.These tires are the fastest, grippiest street tire on the market (Q3-2016). Only way to get more grip or performance is to go to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Even though tire rack warned that these tires have a load range too high for my truck (load range E) which may create an uncomfortable ride, I'm happy with these tires. They're quiet, yet aggressive. I have yet to run them in snow, but I dont foresee any issues due to their performance in deep mud, wet grass, and gravel. My little Dakota has never been...  Read More

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

Recently purchased these tires primarily on Tirerack's test and performance reviews. Previously had Bridgestone S 04's but mileage was abysmal(15,000 miles) and given the cool weather that North Carolina can experience, I was often reluctant to take my Jag out on the road in the winter with maximum performance tires. Still breaking these tires in but am...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

These tires are fantastic. They replaced the original Michelins that lasted 65,000 miles and could have gone a few thousand more. The Kumho TA-71 seem to handle as well or better, but the big difference is the reduced noise level. The Michelins were good, but being a Honda it does pick up road noise more than a lot of other cars. Problem solved. One small...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PS91

Exceptional grip in all conditions. Compared to the original F1 Supercars that came on the 1LE, these PS91s offer improved traction when accelerating and cornering and they don't turn into water skis as soon as the road gets damp. At 7,000 miles, I estimate that these tires will easily make it to 15k (the original F1s made it 11k). I can verify that the...  Read More

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

Here is an honest review. I did a lot of research before choosing these BFG tires. My biggest complaint is that they are extremely noisy, but not long after I installed them I got used to the noise. They perform well in wet & dry climates, heck even in a little snow they still gripped, but do not drive with these tires in the snow...thank you Ohio for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

On both of my Evos (2011 and 2015) I replaced the OEM Yokohamas with the Pilot Super Sports. The grip was not *quite* as good as the Yokos (their grip level was astonishing) but it was close, and the tire life was double. I got about 30k on both sets of pilot SS's, compared to less than 15k on the Yokos. Warning in an AWD sports car: ROTATE RELIGIOUSLY AT 5K...  Read More

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

A great tire for wet and dry traction. Best bang for buck performance in my opinion. Great tires for everyday use, handling all weather conditions (except snow) amazingly. For the price, nothing on the market is better. 9/10 would recommend   Read More

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

These tires replace the prior generation Michelin A/S 3's that I had on the car. One of the great features is the 45K mile warranty -- which I used to get into these tires. After 21K miles, the prior set was down to 3/32 in front and 4/32 in rear. They had gotten noisy, harsh, and obviously past their expected traction sweet-spot. So these new A/S 3+'s are a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I was absolutely blown away by these tires on my 05 BMW 325i (which is a rear wheel drive car). I drove through snow and spotty ice with complete confidence as I could hear the tires gripping the snow and ice on what would typically be a white knuckle driving trip. The ultimate test was in a dumping of 12 inches which the plows eventually got off the roads...  Read More
