Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Have had two sets of Pilot Super Sports on my E90 and have been very pleased. The dry grip is tremendous, the wet grip is very good, and they even perform reasonably well when it gets cold (but no snow). I have a dedicated set of winter tires so these are on the car from April to November. I've gotten three solid summers out of them and they still have a...  Read More

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

These tires perform as week as they did when they were new. I have 8/32s tread depth on all for corners. When they were installed I immediately notice a 10% increase in gas mileage. The ride quality and noise were great and only the ride quality has fallen a little due to the decrease in tread depth. I take this car all over the USA from Wisconsin to South...  Read More

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

Only had them on the truck a short while but within 3-4 days of having them installed, had to drive in a nasty late spring snow. They performed sooooo much better even in 2WD then the previous tires, particularly since it doesn't have a locking differential that it seemed to be a totally different truck. They did seem a little harsher riding but that seems...  Read More

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

Great tire so far. Used on 2013 Toyota 4Runner Limited with All Wheel Drive (torsen center differential) and 17 inch SR5 wheels for better off road performance than the stock 20 inch rims. The tires exhibited good hiway performance in wet and dry conditions no hydroplaning at speed limit (70 to 75 mph) in heavy rains on interstates. Predictable response...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Run Flat

The Pirelli's replaced the OE Bridgestones. The differences are enormous. The Pirelli's are an all around better tire. In both wet and dry conditions they significantly outperform the Bridgestones. Since we live in the Colorado mountains a great deal of time is spent in snow and ice. While these tires do not match a set of good snow tires, they perform much...  Read More

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

My 2015 Boxster S came with 20 inch Pirrelli P Zero Max Performance Summer Tires. They provide satisfactory performance when its sunny and hot. When the temps start to drop in the spring and fall they become a poor tire, with increase in road noise and ride discomfort. So after some research I bought a set of Oz Racing Leggera HLT rims with the BF Goodrich...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I currently run two sets of tires on my Mustang her in New England, 3 seasons of my Original Stock Pirelli P-Nero Zero High Performance Summer Tires and 3 winters of Driving with my Blizzak Performance Winter Snow Tires. It was time to replace the stock summer tires that had worn down to almost nothing with only 35k Miles.First of all the thing I noticed...  Read More

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

I spent several weeks researching tires. This 9-3 came with ContiSportContacts which were also the OE tire. I wanted to upgrade to an Ultra High Performance All Season from those Grand Touring OE boots.Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 were my first choice due to their reviews/reputation. However, Michelin was the only tire company without a rebate right now....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

This is my first experience with these General RT43 tires, but not my first experience with Continental(as the manufacturer)tires because I've owned their DWS series, previous to this vehicle. Dollar for dollar, That may have been one of the best tires I've evr owned, so having driven that tire in a cuple of winters, I also decided to wait a few months to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX Winter

I live in southern Oregon. Not a lot of snow, maybe three storms of 5-8 inches a year. But we live on the northern exposure of a deeply forested hill that keeps snow for a week or two, often getting rained on. The last 300 feet of drive way is at least 12% grade. I found that these tires would often climb the road in 2wd, when even walking on the road is...  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

Best All-Season Tires for Mazda's Mazda6

The Mazda6 is Mazda's mid-size car entry offered since 2002. The third-generation hit the streets for model year 2014 as a four-door sedan with options of either manual or automatic transmission. Without a six-cylinder engine option, some may suggest it loses appeal to some people. However, fuel economy numbers in the high 30s will grab your attention. The...  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 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 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

A great Tire! These replaced the OEM Potenza RE050A which were summer only tires and useless in the winter. I went with these so I could drive on them year round and they were exactly what I hoped they would be. 90% of the traction as the summer only, good enough to get around in light snow, quiet and decent wear. I high recommend them as a high performance...  Read More

Best All-Season and Snow Tires for Your 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE

Does your Jaguar F-TYPE lie parked in the garage during the winter months just begging to be driven? Even a weekend spin is not advisable with sticky summer tires during cold, wintry conditions. The Jaguar F-TYPE is too great a car to store away for months at a time! Performance Winter / Snow tires will give your F-TYPE some grip on cold days and snowy...  Read More

Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+ Might Be the New King of the Hill

We had the opportunity to take the test BMWs on the track this week to test some of the brake pad offerings from Hawk. There were a few options that offered braking bite and quietness for different applications. But more on that later, because the unintended star of the day may have been the tires that were used for the test. For a stop-and-go performance...  Read More
