Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Run Flat

Just had these for about a month and can feel the difference from the oem bridgestone desert duelers. These feel more like passenger car tires. Very smooth and much quieter. Traction seem to be better. I'm very satisfied with them.   Read More

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

I just but these tires on my bmw 750i. I can not report on tread life at this time, but I can tell you that all my friends and I can not believe the difference in the ride. It is like a different car. Feels like just came off showroom floor. Had Pirelli p-zero on it before. These sumitomo blows the Pirelli out of the water. I am amazed in the difference it...  Read More

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

I had high expectations for this tire, but they let me down - especially as it relates to the longevity of the tread wear. I drive a Subaru Cross-Trek XV Hybrid. I got my new tires almost a year ago today. They have 32,400 miles on them and I just failed my car inspection because the tires are now at 2/32. I do mostly highway driving. I did rotate them very...  Read More

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

Recently purchased these tires primarily on Tirerack's test and performance reviews. Previously had Bridgestone S 04's but mileage was abysmal(15,000 miles) and given the cool weather that North Carolina can experience, I was often reluctant to take my Jag out on the road in the winter with maximum performance tires. Still breaking these tires in but am...  Read More

Best All-Season Tires for Late-Model BMW 3 Series

Model year 2012 saw BMW introduce the F30 3 Series. The major change was this was the first time the entire lineup used turbo charged engines. While the array of configurations is expansive, including four door, station wagon, hatchbacks, as well as numerous trim level options (this blog focuses on the standard four-door sedan). This car sports 225/50R17...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Run Flat

Disliking the Continental no-flat all weather tires that came with my Mini I needed a change. These were in special at the time and since I live in Southern California where we receive moderate rain for a couple months I saw no reason for all seasons. I do not baby my car, love mountain drives, and having taken some racing training put tires to their paces....  Read More

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

After reading dozens of reviews of this tire, by far the most accurate was posted on 4/5/2016 from the owner of a Lexus GS 350. That review is exactly the way I feel about my G37x sedan, which is a dynamically similar sports sedan. This tire lives up to the high marks for a smooth, quiet ride and great traction. It's an excellent choice for most cars, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The Hellcat easily breaks loose the oem PZero Pirelli's that came with the car. My experience with the Michelin Pilot Sports tires has been excellent. I even use them on my custom Buick Roadmaster Wagon that I street rodded. In the short time I had driving the hellcat with the new setup, you can feel and see the improved handling and the increase in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

My Pirelli p zero were about shot on the rears and ok on front. They were awfully sticky for everyday use and very noise. I read about the Michelin super sports so took the plunge. Ride quality, grip and noise are night and day from Pirellis in a positive way. If you were track only then Pirellis would probably be fine, but not a good road tire. My car will...  Read More

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

I purchased these tires in an effort to maximize comfort and quietness on the road. These tires are exceptionally quiet for the first 55-60k miles.The tires have shown excellent manners in all areas of driving - with excellent cornering grip. I knew the time for more tires was coming soon within the last 5k miles (around 60k miles of use), as the tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

My car is a 6spd manual and with my previous tires (Firestone Wide Oval Indy 500 & Pirelli P Zero) I could not go full throttle in 1st gear from a roll. With these tires I can roll into full throttle and it will stick ! Also, 0-60 times are on average .2 seconds faster repeatedly. I'm running the same 0-60 times on the street with these tires as I was on a...  Read More

these tires [Pirelly 245/40 yr 18 ultra high perf a/s Plus] replacedContinental Conti Sport Contact 235/35 yr 19 ultra high perf summer tires for improved ride and less punishing to my Golf R. Road/ driving conditions where I lived mandated a little more sidewall. I also wanted better cold weather/rain and light snow capability. Even though I don't drive or...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

In the past I always would purchase the Bridgestone Revo's on one ton trucks vans ETC. This tire has far exceeded my expectations. It is very quiet for a truck of this size, the ride is so much better. Most of the time I have a trailer being pulled behind with another car on it.Very confident handling, I have not tried them in snow yet, but looking at the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I want to provide my initial impression of the Extreme Contact DWS 06 compared to the Pirelli Cinturato P7 A/S Plus that I just returned after 1,000 miles. I replaced the original Good Year Eagle RS-A with the P7 and noticed a significant reduction in steering response, handling, and road holding on the highway. Shame on me for going from a HP tire to a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I installed these on my Jeep Wrangler Sport (model yr 2004) after the Mickey Thompson Bajas wore out in under 10k!. The Scorpions lasted me approximately 25,000 miles until I replaced them for a new set. I used to deflate down to 10-13 psi and do hardcore dune bashing in the desert, and re-inflated back up to 35 psi once all the fun was done with. They...  Read More

Excellent. We have no snow here, so cannot comment. Dry and wet traction is very high. A very quiet and comfortable tire. Made my car feel new again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

By virtue of my car being an AWD slightly-high hatchback, it's tough to critique certain things like the tires' contribution to steering response. Nonetheless, I'm quite happy with these tires. I only needed to replace my rears, but for the cost of just those two tires in the OEM Pirelli run-flat model, I was able to afford a full staggered set of the...  Read More
