Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

I currently have these tires on a 2004 BMW 330Ci. There were a lot of bad reviews on here about these tires but I decided to buy them anyway because of the much lower price and the $80 rebate offered. I owned a pair of Hankook Ventus RS2 about 5 years ago and those tires were the best (200 tread wear). The cornered compared to the Micheline Pilot Sport 2 for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I own a 2013 Mustang V-6 I opted to get a larger set of tires as to get better traction in the snow and rain in Philadelphia, Pa. I was hesitant to get these tires as I'm a very aggressive driver and pull very sharp turns. I relied on the Pirelli P Zero Nero Tires which were great but the ride was harsh in the many potholes in Philadelphia. I drive 37600...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

Came OEM on my car. Great traction in wet and dry. 8 track days and 8600 miles and still plenty of tread. I am impressed by the mileage for a high performance tire. Tons of grip on the track, predictable slip with appropriate level of sound feedback and feel through the steering. I hear how great Michelin's are but I competed at an auto cross against a...  Read More

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

I bought these All Seasons( with low expectations ) to replace my fast wearing yet sticky Summer Pirelli P Zeros. When new the Pilots are squishy while cornering even moderately aggressive. This lessens and eventually goes away around 500 miles or so.I live in Eastern Pennsylvania and these tires got me to and from work in the snow all winter. My S4 didn't...  Read More

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

I am writing this review as I'm purchasing my second set of P Neros from Tire Rack. First of all, there should be a category above Spirited for the type of driver I am. To make matters worse for my tires, I live in the Appalachian mountains so curvy roads with inconsistent pavement mean my tires don't last long. The hard cornering & braking that mountain...  Read More

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

Great tires! My high performance Camaro came with Pirelli P Zero from the factory, excellent tires, but don't last very long. After doing the research, I decided to get the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. After driving on them for 10,000 miles, I do not notice any decrease in traction, steering response, and cornering. The tires ride with comfort, low...  Read More

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 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 P Zero Nero All Season

I like the traction I get in rain. On dry conditions they're sticky and you can tell the grip they have if needed to quickly turn or swerve. They're a firm ride, not soft. You get a reasonable level of feedback from the road.   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 Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Bought this tire to improve cornering while racing in the Big Bend Open Road Race. The OEM Pirelli P Zero Neros were occasionally scary in this regard.WOW. Super Sports exhibited amazing lateral traction, while showing slightly less tracking on center. Slightly harsher ride, noisier, but it is now obvious that the tire outperforms the suspension. More shock...  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 P Zero

This is one of the oem tires for this ML63 AMG...I've gone through 3 sets in 47000 kms including 2 winters with winter tires so needless to say very poor durability. I even had a meeting with the local Pirelli rep who acknowledged the tire is designed for performance (which means poor durability) but he wouldn't come out and say.With my asking nicely Pirelli...  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 Continental ExtremeContact DW

Awesome in the wet, much better hydroplane resistant than Pirelli P-Zeros that were 20 mm skinnier. Ultimate grip is about the same as P-Zeros. Go up a performance category or to Pilot Super Sports if you want more grip. Treadwear on the highway seems to be pretty good. At current wear rate, I am expecting to get 40,000 out of them with no track use and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

I'm on my third set of the Hancook Ventus V12 evos. Size 225/45/17 on Enki Racing RP-F1 wheels. Car Fwd Audi TT Mk 1 w/uprated HP.Car came with Nexus all weather tires. Comfortable, quiet, adequate. At change time, went to Pirelli P Zero Rosso hi-perf summer tires. Significant positive difference. Even torque steer went up. So did wear! Didn't make it until...  Read More

To summarize, the new ExtremeContact DWS 06 addressed a common complaint of the older version of the tire feeling slow to respond to...  Read More

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

Lasted much longer that I expected, by far! Excellent on snow and in bad weather conditions in general. My car being an all wheel drive may contributed to that. Very good all around high performance tire. Very satisfied with these tires and Pirelli in general.   Read More
