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

I got these for my 2015 Tahoe, and they made this truck what it is - luxury SUV that can go anywhere. These tires are phenomenal. Please don't listen to people bashing these tires in winter conditions. People bashing these tires for poor snow performance should learn : a. These are not winter tires. b. how to drive in winter conditions.Tires are performing...  Read More

What Tires Are on a Lexus 2017 RX350?

In the luxury midsize SUV market, the Lexus RX350 ranks as one of the best. It’s easy to see why thanks to a great looking interior, spacious room for the driver and passengers, good power and impressive standard features. With a 295-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine, the RX350’s tires need to be ready to handle that power and translate it into comfort and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS 60

These tires have performed very well for me. I live at Spokane, Washington and travel often to Portland, Oregon and Salt Lake, Utah. The conditions can be wintery or very rainy at where I live or on the highway. The HTS 60s give you great confidence, and handle these conditions very well. I'm also on the back roads in the fall and muddy roads do cause some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

OE summer tire on my Performance Pkg '15 Mustang GT 6sp. I've tried to find opportunities/conditions to justify Ford's selection of this tire, but after almost a year in a variety of temperatures and weather conditions I'm really looking forward to replacing the tires, even with plenty of tread left. This tire loses grip under too many conditions, even when...  Read More

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

The only tire I will buy for my 2011 F150 Raptor. Looked at other tires but decided to stay with original equipment. These are incredible shoes! I now have nearly 50000 on my second set and still have 5-7k left, not down to the wear bars. In terms of traction...these tires have taken everything I've thrown at them and continue to shine. Sand dune? Yup, just...  Read More

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

These tires have met or exceeded all expectations. I do a lot of highway commuting and these tires are as quiet and comfortable as I could hope for on a small car. Fuel mileage using this tire is slightly better than previous tires, but I don't see any huge savings at the pump. I have between 7 and 8/32nds of tread left, so I expect to get around 75,000...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

These came OEM on my Camry and will definitely not be replaced. Undriveable in the winter with even minimal snow, uncomfortable to drive when it rains, and make more noise than my snow tires. At 20,000 miles they're pretty much worn out, I wouldn't be able to finish the summer on them. Looking for a dedicated summer performance tire to rotate with my snows.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

I'm surprised how well the car performs with these tires, from steering responsiveness to grip, the car, for a 1999 Lumnia, rides great!!!! Highly recommend these tires for anyone.   Read More

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

Just put a set these on my Infiniti G-37xS last week. Tire Rack shipped them to my Infiniti dealer who did the install. They balanced up beautifully without much weight. Just have about 250 miles on them so far and just tried them in the snow tonight. Pleasantly surprised at how well they did, considering these are not snows, but all-seasons. In terms of wet...  Read More

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

So I'm curious if other owners experience what I just did on these tires. Overall, I love the PS A/S 3's. They have great ride, feel and control. Problem is, I only got 11,000 miles on the rears as the center treads wore down to 2mm tread depth remaining.Since I do not carry a spare, and run-flats are like driving plywood tires, I elected to replace these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Snowcontrol Serie 3

Obviously not many miles yet. Today, I was out and about while a winter storm was beginning. It was cold out, so the snow was light and fluffy, not wet snow. With maybe an inch or two of snow, compacted in some areas, traction from a standing start was OK. Even with throttle modulation, there was some wheel slip invoking the stability/traction control. Even...  Read More

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

I drive for UBER and after researching tires and shopping around I chose this tire based on and existing comparing test available from TireRack. I put on about 3000 miles a month on these tires (27,000 total since I bought them in March) but I service the car every 5K miles and make sure tires are rotated. Its an excellent tire, quiet, handles well,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is a dream tire from the low rolling resistance which gives good gas mileage to the outstanding wet dry and snow performance. I have yet to encounter conditions where I had anything but the highest reliance on the handling of these tires and they have come through like a champ in all road conditions I have encountered and all weather be it rain turning...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

For original equipment the Latitudes have been terrific. 89k miles and still tread is 6/32nds (2/32nds is replacement time)....probably 100k + miles for these tires.......wow. Good performance on dry and wet pavement....just average in snow. Overall...I like 'em a lot.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I've just finished my second winter season with these tires and I couldn't be happier. I bought these because the winter before, I had driven on all season tires and had a lot of trouble getting up the hill going out of my neighborhood - one day I couldn't make it up the hill and had to stay home from work. It wasn't any fun driving down the major roads,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I've done a lot of work on my car - engine now produces 380 hp, performance suspension, Brembo brakes, sport wheels, so I needed high performance tires to go with it. At the same time, I didn't want tires that would wear too fast, so ultra performance and race tires were out. The Pilot Sports seem to fit the bill.Cornering is excellent and very easily...  Read More

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

I bought a set of the Michelin Pilot A/S 3+ V rated tires to replace asset of A/S 3 Y rated tires. As the older tires wore they started to tramline horribly - to the point that they were scary to drive on bad freeways. I was concerned about dropping from ultra high performance (Y) to high performance (V). So far so good. I drove from Seattle to Portland in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Replaced the OEM installed Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires with only 13,000 miles on the clock and installed the new Michelin Pilot 4S tires. I've had prior experience with some Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires, as well as two sets of Michelin PSS tires on different cars, and Michelin knocked it out of the park again.Summary = Superb traction and handling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Initial Review, I will be reporting in 10 to 15k increments I hope. I just installed these coming from the Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring and its a night and day difference for the better.In comparison the Coopers get a 10 for noise because they are scary quiet. But they go away fast, don't do as well in the wet as claimed, are a bit choppy on imperfections, and...  Read More
