Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

This is the 2nd set of Hankook tires I've installed on my '98 Corvette. I'm 62 years old and drive the car normally. No burnouts or hard aggressive driving. I do some spirited acceleration once in awhile after shifting into 2nd gear of the manual transmission and going into 3rd. I rated the tires as 8 in most categories and 5 in tread wear. These are summer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

I currently have about 74000 miles on these tires and can probably safely get another 15000 miles out of them. Truly the best value tire I have ever purchased, and they perform extremely well too   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Not cheap; but appears to be an excellent value for the money. Ride is quiet and really smooth. Less noise than I experienced on the LTX M/S and LTX M/S2 that I put on my '03 Expedition. These are on my daughter's'06 Pacifica, which is a much lighter vehicle. It's really too early to judge; but treadwear is not noticeable after 5K miles. Wet and Dry Handling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

This is the OEM tire on new Z51 and Z06 Corvettes (except for the Z07 package with the Cup tires). It's a solid tire for a daily driver -- no issues. What amazed me was how well the tire performed during a couple track days. Get a little heat into the tires, and they stick as well as Toyo R888's, which are a dedicated track tire I've used many times over the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I had my mind made up on buying a set of BF Goodrich all terrain ta/ko's when I came across the wrangler dura trac. I like the aggressive look of the dura trac, a number of the reviews I read people commented that they had the ta/ko's before and liked the dura trac better and the dura trac was priced better. I have only had the new tires about 3000 miles and...  Read More

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

This set of tires replaced #4 Hankook Ventus Noble S2 A/S High Performance tires which wore bad and wore out around 20k miles of easy to moderate driving. The BFGoodrich tires have better cornering & dry grip. Better braking and acceleration then the Hankooks. The BFs also performan better in not Hydroplaning and does great in cornering & wet conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S

Have ran 90,000 miles on the Michelin ltx ms tires with absolutely no problems. Have driven in all conditions; highway, city, mountains and rough terrain and have managed all situations with 100% dependability and reliability. These tires have always run smooth and quiet with no vibrations or wear problems. Can get 95k out of them before I replace them with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A

I purchased BF Goodrich Radial R/A (white raised letters) this month; thanks to the knowledge of my TR advisor was able to get this tire at 215/70 Front and 225/70 Rears. This brand and combination are not available on default based on my car but I insisted to get this brand and vintage look. The combination works really well and transformed my '64 Corvette...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

This is the second set I have put on my BMW. These tires are great! Very happy with the purchase. I do both highway and city type of driving in this particular car (my daily driver) and I have been very pleased with they way they have performed and will buy them again. My only issue is that after they get about half worn, they get rather noisy! In my BMW it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

I can't even tell you how great these tires perform, I'm an extremely spirited driver and I have yet to find a corner in my city to make these tires squeal. Lateral stability is worlds above anything I've ever run and they drive silky smooth like a grand touring all season. Put these on my low-profile summer rims and expecting the ride to be stiff as a...  Read More

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

Excellent tire in both wet and dry conditions. Shortly after installing them, I drove the Blue Ridge parkway in a weekend-long fall rain (which meant there was no one on the parkway but me) and was very pleased with wet grip - was able to maintain 50-55 mph through all of the curves, in the rain and with wet leaves in many spots. Made sure steering inputs...  Read More

Putting Larger Wheels on Your Vehicle

Plus Sizing, the process of changing wheels and increasing the diameter, is a great way to enhance the look and performance of your vehicle. What is plus sizing and how does it work? This involves changing the tire and/or wheel size from the original size in a controlled manner so as to maintain certain critical dimensions. When creating a Plus Size fitment,...  Read More

Must I Keep My Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Functional?

When shopping for new wheels and tires for your 2008 model-year or newer vehicle, you will have to address the tire pressure monitoring system. The National Highway Traffic Safety Agency (NHTSA) and a handful of states have made the option of running without sensors a little more limited. This can become complicated and should be addressed directly with a...  Read More

New Payment Option: Goodyear Credit Card

We often get calls from customers asking if we have financing options. While we don't directly finance purchases, we have historically accepted Bill Me Later, which is now PayPal Credit. Also, we will continue accepting this method for online orders, but now there is another option! If you already have a Goodyear Credit Card, then you're in luck! You can now...  Read More

Potenza RE-11 Positioned for Long Run at the Top

There’s no doubt temperatures around the country are at summer time highs. This time of the year is great for cookouts, hanging by the pool…and pushing your car’s traction and handling levels. And no tire is better suited for that in our Extreme Performance Summer category right now than the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11. Currently ranked the top tire in its...  Read More

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

The first time I pushed the tire in corners it performed so well the safety limiter for the car (it starts to shut down the ignition if the car exceeds the preset tilt limit or higher G forces than the safety engineers programed in the computer) started to slow me down. I see that yellow warning light occasionally and laugh how well these tires perform. They...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

These tires are great in rain. Excellent ride quality as well. If you're looking for a run flat, these are a great choice. Can't really give a meaningful review on snow/ice performance, but for wet and dry conditions, these are truly great tires.   Read More

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

Michelin is Excellence!!! There is no better on road tire unless you live in Snow Country the majority of the year!!!Original Equipment was Continentals. They are a B + Tire with 16 +/- MPH on my truck. Then I went for a Larger Tire Size, Toya Open Country (35 Inch Tire) 14 +/- MPH. This Tire is a good off road tire. Highway performance, rain and snow were C...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

My first set of the KUMHO ECSTA 4X II's got me about 38K miles before I replaced them and at that point the tread was basically gone off of at least two tires. That being said, they're inexpensive and when they're new they perform wonderfully. I bought a 2nd set and I may drive a little less spiritedly to see if I can get more life out of them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

I have 60 thousand plus miles on this tire and am down to 3 to 4 32nds. Wish the snow traction would be better and no doubt I would purchase again. But with so much competition out there now, it's easy for a manufacturer to lose ground in the performance of their tire. I'm sure when these first came out they were state of the art. Still the longevity of a...  Read More
