Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

Only had them on the truck a short while but within 3-4 days of having them installed, had to drive in a nasty late spring snow. They performed sooooo much better even in 2WD then the previous tires, particularly since it doesn't have a locking differential that it seemed to be a totally different truck. They did seem a little harsher riding but that seems...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

Great tire so far. Used on 2013 Toyota 4Runner Limited with All Wheel Drive (torsen center differential) and 17 inch SR5 wheels for better off road performance than the stock 20 inch rims. The tires exhibited good hiway performance in wet and dry conditions no hydroplaning at speed limit (70 to 75 mph) in heavy rains on interstates. Predictable response...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Run Flat

The Pirelli's replaced the OE Bridgestones. The differences are enormous. The Pirelli's are an all around better tire. In both wet and dry conditions they significantly outperform the Bridgestones. Since we live in the Colorado mountains a great deal of time is spent in snow and ice. While these tires do not match a set of good snow tires, they perform much...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

Bought set of Michelin Defender LTX MS this time. Prior tire purchases for our Tahoe include Michelin Latitude Tour, and Goodyear Fortera Silent Armor. Smooth and quiet being most important quality for our cars. I can say that all three of these tire models perform very similar, all very smooth and quiet. I probably would have bought second set of Fortera...  Read More

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

Replaced the Dunlop tires that came on the car. I was quiet surprised by both the comfort and performance of these Pilot A/S 3+ tires. I haven't put many miles on them yet but expect to enjoy these tires for many miles to come. I recommend these tires for anyone looking for performance tires with some snow traction.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400

Typical O.E. tire quality and performance. Standard ride comfort, squeals easily during cornering, limited traction in wet and light snow. Compared this tire on O.E. wheel set and Volk CE28n wheel set, identical sets of 225/55r18 Duelers H/L 400. Both tire sets were O.E. on 2015 Subaru Forester XT Touring models with similar manufacturing dates.Currently...  Read More

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

My 2015 Boxster S came with 20 inch Pirrelli P Zero Max Performance Summer Tires. They provide satisfactory performance when its sunny and hot. When the temps start to drop in the spring and fall they become a poor tire, with increase in road noise and ride discomfort. So after some research I bought a set of Oz Racing Leggera HLT rims with the BF Goodrich...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

We have the 50MPG Cruze diesel and drive about 100 miles min rt to work everyday. I have always done my homework when buying tires so rarely am I surprised at the results I receive and I have been driving for almost 40 years. These are quite possibly the best tires I have ever owned. The car came with Goodyears as OEM and they were good tires. We got 60K...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Chose the ExtremeContact DWS06 as replacement for the O.E. Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400 on my Subaru Forester XT Touring. Both the Bridgestone and the Continental are mounted to Volk CE28n wheels.Noticeable upgrade in every performance category. Any additional cost for moving from the Highway All-Season category to the Ultra High Performance All-Season is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I currently run two sets of tires on my Mustang her in New England, 3 seasons of my Original Stock Pirelli P-Nero Zero High Performance Summer Tires and 3 winters of Driving with my Blizzak Performance Winter Snow Tires. It was time to replace the stock summer tires that had worn down to almost nothing with only 35k Miles.First of all the thing I noticed...  Read More

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

I bought a 2008 Infiniti G37S a couple moths ago. Love it! It needed new tires to pass MD inspection, so the dealership provided a set of Yok Advan Sport A/S for no additional charge, and they were fine. Unfortunately, with these 19 wheels, the very low aspect ratio looked like trouble in real life situations, since the rims stuck out beyond the sidewall, so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiSportContact 5P

I live in Colorado and have driven these tires in most every condition except heavy snow. Most recently I did an SCCA Track Night with them starting at normal street pressures. These tires are amazing and probably the best I have owned, especially on the track. I've had many other performance all-seasons and these are the best. After a single track session I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Best tire I have ever had on this car. I am in a car club here in Va. We go on long rides through the mountains , high speed curves , never had any corning problems . These tires are maid for performance cars not front wheel drive granny cars. Getting ready to buy another set. Great tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G95A

The Geolander H/T G95A has performed much better than I'd expected from a set of OE tires. I live in the DC Metro area and since I've owned the Forester dealt with a few major (for this region) and a number of moderate snow events, as well as significant rainy spells. When I was faced with Snowmageddon in Feb. 2010, I found that once I cleared a bit of space...  Read More

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

I spent several weeks researching tires. This 9-3 came with ContiSportContacts which were also the OE tire. I wanted to upgrade to an Ultra High Performance All Season from those Grand Touring OE boots.Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 were my first choice due to their reviews/reputation. However, Michelin was the only tire company without a rebate right now....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (W-Speed Rated)

Driving a hot rod Dodge Challenger with a 5.7L Hemi can go through tires in a hurry!!!haha I went through 2 other types of high performance tires quickly which only lasted around 18,000 miles each set. No I do not punch it, burn rubber or race it. I went through 2 sets just on highway commuting. I purchased Goodyear Eagle Sport A/S 245/45 20 103W. Best...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

I've purchased Kumho tires from Tire Rack previously for several other vehicles including this one over a 16 year period and this set rates as high in most categories than the other models. I always got great long-term comfort, wear and satisfaction from them, all were high performance-oriented tires with H, V and W speed ratings. This set has proven to be...  Read More

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

This is my first experience with these General RT43 tires, but not my first experience with Continental(as the manufacturer)tires because I've owned their DWS series, previous to this vehicle. Dollar for dollar, That may have been one of the best tires I've evr owned, so having driven that tire in a cuple of winters, I also decided to wait a few months to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX Winter

I live in southern Oregon. Not a lot of snow, maybe three storms of 5-8 inches a year. But we live on the northern exposure of a deeply forested hill that keeps snow for a week or two, often getting rained on. The last 300 feet of drive way is at least 12% grade. I found that these tires would often climb the road in 2wd, when even walking on the road is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These tires replaced the stock Potenza S001 Run-flats that came with my 2015 335i from the factory. To be honest, the performance difference between these tires and the stock run-flats is nominal. I was a little disappointed because I expected a huge change from all the reviews I read. Don't get me wrong, the Michelin tires are better, but only just. Maybe I...  Read More
