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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I changed out the factory run flats on our X6 almost immediately as it came with high performance summer tires (I will never understand that for cars going to snow prone areas). I didn't want to sacrifice performance for winter capability and I didn't want two sets of tires (though I understand the argument). I only had one other experience with Conti's and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

Drove 200 miles each way to NJMP for a 2 day HPDE. Running stock pressure on stock BBS wheels. These tires are a big improvement in terms of overall grip compared to my Michelin Pilot Super Sports that were on the car prior. Performed very similar to the Dunlop Star Spec's but communicates a little less before it lets go (the squealing is a little muted)....  Read More

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

Bought these tires as a replacement for the OEM set, and what a difference a good set of tires makes. It feels like I'm driving a different car. I consider myself a very aggressive driver. On dry pavement, these tires are fantastic. They seem to be able to handle any corner at any speed, there's no tire chirp on hard acceleration, and braking is outstanding....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

This is my first experience running a dedicated snow tire read all the reviews plus affordability this tire performance was awesome .. I ran it on a Ford Focus front wheel drive and yes I bought 4 not just the front. All I can say is I will be a repeat customer for these tires👍   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS

Got just over 30k miles on this tire. I was very impressed with these initially. They felt a bit softer than the ultra High performance OEM tire but that was expected for a touring tire. Generally they gave me best of both worlds, performance and ride quality. My biggest disappointment is the tread wear. According to my dealer the fronts are at 3/32 and the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

These tires only went on today but I wanted to pass on initial impressions of a good product. After driving my latest Prius for 18k miles with the mushy OEM Bridgestone EP20's, I finally had enough. The OEM's are/were as poor as the reviews indicate. All performance parameters suffer I suppose in order to maximize LRR properties. Plus they are already...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

An standardized usage rating system would be useful for all season tires. At one end would be the Pilot Sport A/S 3. Excellent dry, wet and cornering traction with marginal snow and ice performance. On the other end would be the ExtremeContact DWS 06. A tire biased toward class leading snow and ice traction with average touring tire handling. Both are good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I usually buy Michelin tires, but this is my first set of Continentals. So far I have found these tires meet all of my criteria. Extremely good handling in both wet and dry conditions. They are very quiet. Very good braking performance. Competitively priced. Does it sound I'm happy with this choice - yes I am! I will update the review, including wear factors...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These tires were rated no:1 when I was looking for new tires for the X3 and since I already had them on a 03' 330i ZHP, I decided to get them. Having all wheel drive and some considerable clearance on the X3, theses tires perform better than expected. It was like driving on regular road when driving in 4-5in. of snow. They are quiet, has an incredible ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro AT-M

I like almost everything about this tire. Traction, steering feel and handling are very good. Ride is very good, really soaks up surface roughness. Snow & ice performance is reasonable for an A/T but will not compare with a top snow tire. Off road traction is generally excellent. Unfortunately, with age tire has got noisy in 25-45mph range, but at highway...  Read More

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

I drive in northwest Florida, in and around Pensacola, and the tires have held up very well. After about 20,000 miles, I had to have the front tires rebalanced, but it was no big issue. These tires will wear abnormally if your car is out of alignment, so keeping a good alignment is absolutely necessary. Lots of rainy weather lately and they really do grip...  Read More

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

I'm impressed with the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 even though I have only driven less than 500 miles. I agonized over the performance/cost trade-off with my previous replacement tire favorite, the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. The entire experience with Tire Rack was impressive - the customer service and the efficient transaction handling - plus setup for local...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I do drive city mostly due to my retirement and age--83, but the city street corners are taken well within the handling ability of the R32 and my enjoyment level of owning the best sports car I have ever driven. Local on and off ramps of our interconnecting interstate roads are vigorously attacked and enjoyed with the RE11s-no loss in confidence, whether wet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I wanted a reliable set of winter tires, as soon as I had bought my rear wheel drive MB. I drive a lot, mostly highway, on I94 and I90 between Ontario and Minnesota, crossing Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin. I have to admit, these tires have performed beyond my expectations for winter tire experience on other brands in my prior cars. I have been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

These Pirelli P Zero tires came as the OEM tire on my Maserati GT-S. When it was time to get a new set of tires I read all the reviews and the Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires where overwhelming better rated than the Pirelli's so I thought I would try them. Unfortunately the Michelin Pilot SS have a very soft sidewall for a performance tire. Given the more...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture APT KL51

This is my second set. I was very pleased with its overall performance. Quiet and smooth on dry roads. It was ok in the snow and icey conditions. Better than my old Michelin ltx. My only complaint was after 5 years, one of the tire steel belt broke causing the tread to Mohawk. There was still plenty of tread left. Warranty was expired. I'm thinking it's an...  Read More

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

I ditched the run flats and went with the Comp-2 A/S and a plug kit since the F30 doesn't have a spare. Couldn't be happier with the performance of these tires. Can't speak on tread life or snow performance, but the tires are great in dry/wet. Tons of grip and confidence in any road situation. The tires do hum a little on various surfaces, but it's a minor...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Was disappointed in the light winter we had but....Wet, slushy, icy,heavy snow; 10 pm drive home, passing everyone, looked down, 75 mph, felt like 45. Pretty much says it all for a snow tire. Couldn't wait to get 'em off come spring, but performed as advertised and at least 3 more winters in them. Couldn't be more confident driving my car in the winter....  Read More

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

Had these tires for <500 miles, so this is an initial impression. These are very stable on the Miata; much more so than the RE760's that I replaced. Excellent wet traction and I have yet to break them loose on dry pavement. The handling is precise and immediately responsive, and the noise level is on par with the performance nature of the tires. I will...  Read More
