Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

Just bought these for my Volvo. Ive had 4 different vehicles in my lifetime and probably 10 or 11 different sets of tires. BY FAR these are the best Ive ever had. I love all season tires and after having these I don't think Ill ever buy anything besides these for my car again! When I bought this in the summer the previous owner had Pirelli P Zero tires on it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

I own these tires because they're actually the only tires available for the OEM 17 rims than came on my 2007 Porsche Cayman. There are literally no other options. Used to put Contis on, but can't even get those anymore. I've had them for a few winters now. I live in downtown Toronto and we get a mix of light and heavy snow. Some winters we just get really...  Read More

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

12/14/13 - I just picked up my car, and with several inches of snow last night and snowing this morning, I was able to test these new tires in wet, slush, light snow, and thick snow on my drive home. These tires are unbelievablely great!!! I tested the tires from 40mph to a stop. In wet and slush conditions, I was not able to activate my ABS no matter how...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

Had a little wheelspin getting up a hill on solid ice, but otherwise very impressed with handling in snow at temps below 15 deg F. Confidence inspiring, and unless really looking to drive anywhere near the car's limits, would even consider leaving them on year-round depending on tread wear, but too soon to comment on that.   Read More

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

Just replaced the OEM Firestone FR710 tires after approx 60K miles. The OEM's were downright dangerous in any standing water at any speed > 50mph but they were quiet and provided good gas mileage. In snow, forget it, I just tried to avoid driving. Being an old guy I'm just interested in safety, comfort/quiet and good gas mileage. The only spirited driving I...  Read More

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

I just got this car 6 months ago and it had Goodyear Eagles on it. The ride was O.K. as was the handling. After reading a lot of reviews I decided on the P7 and what a GREAT choice. The ride has improved and also the handling but there is a HUGE difference in the noise! I don't hear well and now my wife does not have to even speak loudly for me to hear her....  Read More

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

I wanted to write this review as I didn't see any other reviews of this tire with a large wagon like my Volvo V70. I live in an area with lots of sweeping curves and hills, never snows. These P7 all season's are exactly the tire I was hoping for...quiet & smooth while still providing excellent grip in both rain & dry. (I bought the car with Bridgestone...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Living in the high sierras, a dedicated winter tire is a must. Normal snowfall is 400 per year although the last two winters have been unfortunately mild.Driving a Q5 S-Line Prestige with a 255/45/20 size, a real winter tire is needed. Previous tires for the Q5 included the Bridgestone LM-60 and the Conti Extreme Contact DWS. The Conti was noisy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I have driven on this tire for 20000 miles before they began making noise and it seems to just be getting louder. I have taken the car to have it looked at but they can find nothing wrong. There is no visible cupping and although this tire rides great, I do not think I would buy this tire again. If only the Pirelli's were out when I bought these.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Corsa System

I have had 6,000 miles on both front and rear with these tires including 5 track days, about 3 hours each day of track time. I am replacing the rear only. The front have a lot of miles left. I have tried Michelin and Conti on Porsche and this is the best. I have also tracked twice at Sebring in the rain. And while there was not standing water as they clear...  Read More

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

2014 640i Gran Coupe Xdrive. Came with Goodyear LS2 Runflats. The ride was so harsh and tires loud that i took them off the car with 3000 miles and i didn't have the reliability issues others have had with no potholes here in Florida. I can't believe BMW sells an 88K luxury car with these tires. I have decided that after going through Performance tires every...  Read More

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

Based on Tire Rack reviews etc. I purchased these tires to replace the original P Zero's. Hard to believe the same company can produce such different tires, nevermind that Audi felt the need to put P Zero's on a car like this. The P7's are great. The ride is smooth, quiet, controlled and the mileage at 32 mpg on the highway is outstanding. Two thumbs up...  Read More

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

Bought these to replace the extremely noisy Bridgestone Turanza's that came factory with my 12' mazda3 iGT. I upgraded to 17 matte anthracite MOMO revenge wheels in the process (factory size for Mazda3 sGT) to give a more aggressive look as well as cut down on the sidewall to increase handling. I STRONGLY recommend doing this to anyone with $ to do so. This...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I have only had this tire for a few months, but compared to the OEM Yokohama Geolander it replaced, it's like night and day. Living here in Colorado, we see all types of driving conditions. A couple of months ago, we got 8 inches of hail and so I really wanted to test out these tires; I couldn't make them slide, couldn't make them slip, and they stopped...  Read More

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

Initial review shortly after purchase. After experiencing the smooth, quiet ride on my wife's new Bridgestone Serenity tires, I decided to retire my previous set of half worn Goodyear Tripletreads due to noise and harsh ride quality. Based on reviews here and my priority for smooth, quiet ride I chose the Pirelli P7 AS plus. My initial impression is that I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hoosier R7

So R7s are my first step up from R888s, Advans, Pilot Sport Cups and Pirelli Corsa (on newer Porsches) and other like R comps through 10 years of track experience. I replaced worn out R888 245/45/17's at 4 corners of my trusty old track prepared '98 M3 - first thing of note, the tires are substantially wider in sectional width than like sized other brands of...  Read More

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

I replaced the original Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric tires after about 30,000 miles. They were noisy and very easy to turn over off the line. Never had any issues with dry traction or grip in the corners but wet driving FORCED me to slow down. As they accumulated miles they remained predictable and consistent but did get much louder as they got closer to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S (H- or V-Speed R

amazing transformation in terms of grip, steering response and the car actually stops in a shorter distance, as well as accelerate quicker. Grip is so much improved over the old Pirelli's I would highly recommend these tires   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

My 2014 Audi S5 came with Pirelli PZero Rosso, 255, 35 YR, 19 tires; great, sticky summer performance tires to be sure. By 10K miles, it was easily time to replace them. They'd become very loud, and the OK wet handling had become squirelly at best. I decided to go with the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 in the same size and speed rating (both are also load rated...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z II

I purchased my vehicle with these tires on them and only got 15k out of them because of bad camber issues, but when driving with these, my car could take corners like no other tire I've had before, and I've had the Hankook Ventus, a set of Pirellis (exact model name escapes me), and various other higher end tires and these I would have to say kept up with...  Read More
