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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I sized down from my standard 18 wheels for this winter set and I am so glad I did. Ride comfort was incredibly improved with the 17 inch wheels plus the softer winter compound of this tire. These Michelins are so much quieter then my all season Pirelli P7s that I sort of wish I could drive them year-round. As I've experienced from every winter tire I've...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

This is basically the only tire that should be put on a high horsepower, rear wheel drive sports car that needs to be driven in the winter and especially in the snow. For 20 years I purchased nothing but Pirelli P-Zero tires and I always wondered why my rear wheel drive cars ----ed in the snow. The reason why is that those are summer only tires. They also...  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 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 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Purchased these tires after hearing a lot of good things about them. Had the stock Goodyear Eagle LS2's on my 13' Accord Sport and they were ok. They lasted me about 42k miles. Nothing great about these tires. The Pirellis were night and day compared to the Goodyears. The Pirellis were a lot smoother, a little more quieter and handles way better. What put me...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

I've been very surprised at how capable these tire are. My car came new with Pirelli Corsa 'steetable track & competition' tires, which are not recommended for near-freezing temps. I wanted to drive the car year-round so I needed some cold-weather tires. In the Tire Rack comparison test it was phrases like very nice balance of on-center precision and...  Read More

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

Are 2011 Dodge Challanger came with 20 rims and Goodyear original equipment tires. Being low profile the ride was very rough, and my wife looked forward to winter when I changed her rims to an 18 rim and tire with a smoother ride. Since we got the new Pirelli tires. They ride as smooth and comfortable as an 18 tire with more sidewall. Me and my wife love...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx TT

I drive a modified Subaru Forester (stage 3) with Tokico d-specs and RC engineering springs (1 drop on an sti, so almost a 4 drop for the Forester). These tires are awesome on dry pavement. I run these tires 7 months out of the year and I am sad when I don't have them on (I run Pirelli P-Zero Nero All seasons during the other 5 months).I am at 30K miles now...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

This is a superb performance winter tire. Living in the DC metropolitan area, winters are mostly dry or wet rather than snowy, but serious snowfall does occur (not to mention road trips where snow is to be expected). These tires handled everything the weather threw at them with aplomb, including dry roads, wet roads, slush, packed snow, and ongoing heavy...  Read More

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

Great ride. Quite. Solid handling. Good tread wear so far. My only major criticism is that these tires provide very poor traction from a stop. I cannot apply anywhere near as much power from a stop with these P7s as I could with my previous Michelins without the tires spinning. That kinetic-static friction threshold is comparatively worse in rain. If it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

These are very ordinary tires; performance is adequate, cold weather and snow capabilities are at best marginal. Most of my driving is in rural Bucks County Pennsylvania where the roads are ill-maintained and difficult to negotiate. The MKZ Hybrid is perfectly balanced due to the weight of the battery in the trunk, but these tires disappoint under most...  Read More

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

All around great tire-handling, cornering, noise level, etc. In terms of wear, I'm at 74K with tread left on all 4 tires. At the shop now having 4 new ones installed. I'd try another 5K but one tire has developed a slow leak. These are on an Audi ALLROAD. I've had a couple Miatas and a GTI so my tires don't get off easy.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

I have to say these tiers Rocked it this winter. They were on a Macan as my winter tire and they preformed in every condition. I purchased the full tire/rim combo from Tire rack and it was easy. I had them shipped to a recommended Tire Rack installer and he came by to put them on in my driveway. It was a great experience. I went smaller with 18 vs 20 for the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

Tires have good traction in wet or dry but they are a bit more noisy than the stock pirellis that I replaced. Driving in the rain i have not had any problems with wheel spin at take off or any issues with loss of traction or hydroplaning. Cornering seems pretty stable with no squealing. My fuel mileage didn't really change with these which was a good thing....  Read More

Best Summer, All-Season and Winter Tires for the Latest-Generation Audi A7

The Audi A7 is an executive level mid-size four-door hatchback, or as Audi prefers "Sportback" car. Starting at just under $70,000, adding this thoroughbred to your stable could be a sign that you have made it. With less than a thousand sold a month, you will likely own the only one in the parking lot at work. Since the 2012 redesign, Audi seems to have used...  Read More

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

This is the second set of Pirelli Cinturatos I purchased for my wife's Avalon. Was very happy with the first set with one exception -- only got around 30,000 miles before treadwear indicators were showing. Also, we switch over to dedicated snow tires in winter, so I can't vouch for snow traction except for the one time we got caught out in 2 - 3 inches of...  Read More

Best Replacement Tires for Your Honda Pilot

The Pilot is Honda's largest SUV. While sharing platforms with the Odyssey minivan, it broadens appeal to the group of families that just don't want a minivan, but still need the room and flexibility. The current model has been on the road since 2009 and is viewed as a success both critically and commercially. The 245/65R17 size in extremely popular, but...  Read More

Testing the New Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+

Not long ago, Michelin introduced the Pilot Sport A/S 3 Ultra High Performance All-Season tire as a direct replacement for the popular Pilot Sport A/S Plus. We wrote about the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus in our post, "Which Ultra High Performance All-Season Tires Should I Buy?" Like its predecessor, the Pilot Sport A/S 3 had a noticeable advantage in...  Read More
