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

An update sooner than intended... '13 Mustang GT Convertible, Brembo package, Bilstein shocks/struts, 40 psi cold front, 38 psi cold... of course when they warm up the pressure increases 2-3 PSI.Took a 50 mile long backroad home today around one of my favorite roads...128 on the south side of Lake Berryessa, then into Fairfield. 55 mph speed limit, 20 mph to...  Read More

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

I spent a month on the Tire Rack website for my new to me Tahoe. It already had Bridgestone tires on it and I bought this vehicle from a friend. No complaints from him on the last set. Boy did I make a great decision at this point. Even thought they are just slightly noisy, they have performed better than expected. I made it through winter with no issues in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I replaced my PAX tires on my 06 Honda Odyssey van with the Continental True Contact 235/65R/16 tires. I am putting this review out there even though I have only driven 350 miles because I am that impressed with them. My daughter is getting ready to take a long trip in my van so I will have another update after that. To be fair I had run the PAX tires until...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

I wanted the 18 wheels on my Challenger and bought a SXT. Replaced the 235/55/18 with these Dunlop Signature HP 255/55/18. The original were touring tires and had a good ride. These wider ultra high performance Dunlops have turned my Challenger into a Mini Scat -------- Cat. They handle much better and only weigh in at 2 extra pounds. Plus the wider tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Although the car is a 2015, I just took delivery 2 weeks ago. Got a fantastic deal. These tires are OE. I figured I'd keep track on here from the onset. Since I've never driven on this brand before, I was predicting I might swap them immediately after delivery for the same Yokohama Advan Sport A/S' I put on our other car and LOVE them. So far, they ride...  Read More

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

Replaced the OEM goodyears with these michelins on my 2010 infiniti g37x. Big difference in the overall ride. Quiet, smooth, excellent grip on dry roads. Best tire I have every driven in any vehicle in wet conditions. Confidence inspiring no matter how wet. Not as firm as the original tires and as a result a little less responsive when pushed. A fair trade...  Read More

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

It is somewhat difficult to distinguish the performance benefits of these tires from those of permanent AWD. A set of Yokohama ENVigor ultra high performance all-season tires, which preceded the current set of Cinturato P7 All Season Plus tires, provides the primary benchmark by which comparison may be drawn.Winter Storm Jonas of 2016 was a challenge for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Run Flat

Disliking the Continental no-flat all weather tires that came with my Mini I needed a change. These were in special at the time and since I live in Southern California where we receive moderate rain for a couple months I saw no reason for all seasons. I do not baby my car, love mountain drives, and having taken some racing training put tires to their paces....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

An excellent tire so far since I have only 1,000 miles on the tire, but so far in summer driving they are just excellent. So far it is a very large step up from the tires that came as orginial equipment. The real test will be this winter since I live in MN and we get our share of very bad blizzards including snow dumps of 24 inches which can cause drifting...  Read More

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

After reading dozens of reviews of this tire, by far the most accurate was posted on 4/5/2016 from the owner of a Lexus GS 350. That review is exactly the way I feel about my G37x sedan, which is a dynamically similar sports sedan. This tire lives up to the high marks for a smooth, quiet ride and great traction. It's an excellent choice for most cars, but...  Read More

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

I have had this tire for 8 months and driven 5000-6000 miles. This tire sticks to the road in the dry and is firm and confident in cornering. It moves water very well in the frequent heavy downpours of our southern thunderstorms. This tire was hard to make hydroplane even in standing water, when rains faster than the roads can drain. The winter traction was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

My 2002 911 Carrera C2 does spirited daily driver duty as well as a few PCA autocross events each year. I have the factory 18 wheel option. These tires replaced the Hankook Ventus K112 that lasted 13,137 in similar use. After the fifth run in yesterday's autocross I noticed a thin white line of tire cord exposed on the Contis rear driver's side tire at the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 ZP

Comfortable and perform well in day to day driving, even in wet conditions. Amazing performance on the track, over 1.2 Gs in corners and these tires stuck like glue, no surprises, no change in behavior throughout the day of racing.   Read More

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

I purchased these tires in an effort to maximize comfort and quietness on the road. These tires are exceptionally quiet for the first 55-60k miles.The tires have shown excellent manners in all areas of driving - with excellent cornering grip. I knew the time for more tires was coming soon within the last 5k miles (around 60k miles of use), as the tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These tires have been an absolute joy. The OEM Dunlops were garbage in comparison. The Michelins have proven to be decent for tread wear given they are high performance summer tires. On very few occasions I have been able to break traction with them despite my best efforts with a stage 1 STI. The Dunlops would squiggle about all over, coupled with an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP

Great tire. No side wall flex before/during cornering and instant response. Great grip off the line and in the corners. I drive in AZ with hot rough roads and occasionally during the monsoons. Would buy again but they stopped making them. You are going to start losing traction on any tire after about a year and a half or 15000 miles. No tire I found...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These pilot super sports are amazing tires! Coming off a worn out set of continental conti sport contact threes that I had a high opinion of. The PS3s are the best tires I have ever driven on. They are sticky, quiet and great in the rain. We took a trip from MD to Missouri and not only did they perform flawlessly on the highway, but they did equally great on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

Had these for a couple thousand miles. More quiet than the stock Potenza S001 and probably just as grippy if not more in the dry. I was skeptical at first, due to the price, but have been very happy with them so far. They are an aggressive looking tire and I would say definitely perform the part. After about 20+ Autocross runs in them I have noted hardly any...  Read More
