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

Ratings reflect an average of performance over 39000 miles. Obviously they don't perform as well now as they did with 2000 miles on them. Most amazing thing about the tires is low rolling resistance, which seems to improve with age. I had to reprogram my driving style to allow for the extra roll that I get when I take my foot off the gas. Using a new style...  Read More

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

Had these wheels for about 6 months now. I don't put too many miles on my personal car because I have a company car i get to drive most of the time. So far these tires have been amazing. Freeway noise is none intrusive, the handling in all the weather conditions have been great. I think the biggest aspect i have notices is these tires performance in wet...  Read More

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

After 1000 miles, compared to the stock Michelin Primacy HP Tires, these do have more grip (Example: Difficult to make the traction control turn on, quieter, and have better driver confidence. After 1000 miles, I notice that my MPG has dropped by full MPGs. On the Primacy HPs I'd average 25.32 MPG, on these I average 23.12 MPG. 2 MPG Difference for the added...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Best tires I've ever owned and I've had a wide variety of performance tires on various cars from Nitto, Conti's, Bridgestone's, Pirelli's, and Dunlop's. These tires replaced the stock Bridgestone tires which were average at best. I put these tires on the 370Z 3 days prior to driving to Tail of the Dragon and other various roads in the Smokey Mountains. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I just finished my first season on the Michelin X-ICE3's, in West Michigan, and was very pleased. 2015/16 was a mild winter for us, but still plenty of opportunities to try out the grip of these tires in snow, slush, and ice. I drive my manual-transmission rear-wheel-drive Chevy SS sedan in a spirited manner from time to time when conditions allow, but I...  Read More

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

This tire is a wonderful choice for the Tesla Model S for a high performance summer tire. It appears be built with care as my tire shop only needed to add one or no weights to each tire for balancing. They were amazed at this. Also, the tire has no siping or tread cuts at the outer edge. This means that the tires does not throw as many small pebbles as tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I drive 160 miles round trip 5 days a week, so around 40,000 per year. My G37 is the sport edition so I cannot rotate tires. I go through a set of rear tires every year (so around 40,000) and a front set every year and a half (60,000). I have ran the rears until it looked like a slick with no issues. These tires perform very well in rain, cornering, high...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

What a smooth riding, well handling, good looking tire. I thought the previous set of Michelin Pilot Sports were good but these are much better. And the Sumitomos?I run 245/40/18 in the front and 275/35/18 in the back. I've only driven 500 miles on them so am looking forward to seeing how they perform over time. Hopefully, the 560 AA A UTQG means they'll go...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP

This is the third set of these tires I have purchased. Each set was for a different vehicle. I am so pleased with the performance that's why I have continued to buy them. They wear well too!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

After my OE Pirelli P-Zero's wore out, I decided to try a high-performance all-season. I could not be happier with these Continental Extreme Contacts. On both the highway and in the city, these tires are impressive. I am particularly pleased with their balance between handling and comfort. There is almost no road noise, even at 80+ mph. This is my first set...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I purchased a set of four of these tires for my 2005 S2000, a rear wheel drive performance sports car. They were mounted on wheels for the 2003 model year, as snow tires are not available for the larger 2005 model year wheels. The tires were 205/55TR16 in the front and 225/50TR16 in the rear.The tires were amazing in snow. Light snow on reasonably...  Read More

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

I replaced my OEM Dunlop SP Sport 5000 tires at 22,000 miles on the Mazda 6 GT with these. I use them for commuting to work and in the winter I plan to run dedicated winter tires. So far this summer these have been a great deal quieter and smoother than the OE tires, and I am very happy with the ride quality. The professional installation at the dealer on a...  Read More

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

Had the previous version of this tire the A/S 3. Bought it again because I don't think there is a better tire on the market. For all the nay-sayers about the snow traction...c'mon. This is an ultra high performance all season tire......if you're running them n the snow what do you expect?? I had zero issues with the previous version on the days it snowed in...  Read More

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

Initial review. I struggled when picking tires for this vehicle. 2007 Grand Prix GXP. The car has a very tight suspension and is a real performer for a 4 door full size sedan. I was looking for the perfect balance between ride comfort, something quiet, but yet would maintain the sporty attitude of the car. I think this tire does the trick. Road noise was cut...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

This set of Blizzard was installed 1 day before the only big snow storm in New York. After city snow removal, my van was buied in a 4 foot of packed snow/ice mixture. Took me 10 minutes to cleared my driver door entrance only, I was able to drove the van out of my spot. I only had 1 foot of spare room in front & behind my van. My neighbors were shocked to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

They are a nice upgrade over the stock tires, and I've tracked with them for an hour or two total. I can attest to their longevity as they are going bald with over 27k miles on them. I have seen the reviews that they are not as sticky as the new RE-71R, but they cover two different markets, the newer filled a niche for people who like making times and as a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I only have about 4Kmi on these four tires, but I am very happy with their performance, most notably in the snow we had this past winter (2016). They do seem to strike a good balance between wet traction, dry traction, rolling resistance, and road noise. I selected them from moderately priced tires primarily after reading other buyers' reviews. So far, so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

Cont'd from March 18, 2016...My subjective opinion is they really don't cause you more money. As a matter of fact, except for the hassle of swapping wheels and tires (in my case), it is a concept of conservation of tread life, like having a second pair of shoes. You get to wear each pair (first and second pairs) for a longer time-wise. In fact, I also feel...  Read More
