Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion STR

I average 25K miles per year. As I approach 2 years on these tires (45K miles on them) I have decided to re-purchase them again. I will end up replacing them a little early due to the time of year rather than running them down to the ware bars. Mid January in middle Ga can get a bit slick, and it's not worth pushing them to see how far they will go. They...  Read More

Having a fun sporty car used to mean that you also needed a second car to handle the winter months.

Nobody really knows, but we do know it's coming. Do you need to run winter / snow tires? If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow, you should...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

I bought these tires last year from Tire Rack mounted on Sport Edition ST6 bright silver wheels. These wheel look very similar to the stock wheels, but have a bright finish to them that I find very attractive with the Floret Silver paint on my car. You can find Audi center caps on the Internet that will fit, too.I've never been a big fan of Michelin tires,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I just purchased these tires last week for use on my moderately modified 2002 Mazda Protege. These tires are incredibly quiet for a snow tire and they roll beautifully. In fact, they feel very similar to the Michelin Energy Saver A/S tires that I use on one of my other cars, a Toyota Prius. The X-ice Xi3 is the BEST overall snow tire in the heavy snow/ice...  Read More

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

I bought these Pirelli Cinturato P7 to replace the stock Yokohamas, which were fine, but fairly worn by 37k. The Pirellis are a bit smoother and quieter and after 30k, still have a lot of life in them. They ride smooth and quiet, good in the wet. Handling is great too. I didn't notice a reduction in fuel consumption which Pirelli touts. I live in the...  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 Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

It is somewhat difficult to distinguish the performance benefits of these tires from those of permanent AWD. A set of Yokohama ENVigor ultra high performance all-season tires, which preceded the current set of Cinturato P7 All Season Plus tires, provides the primary benchmark by which comparison may be drawn.Winter Storm Jonas of 2016 was a challenge for...  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

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 P Zero All Season Plus

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.

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 Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

These tires replaced my Goodyear LS2 which were the worst tire I ever used. They came on the car when I bought it. These new Pirelli tires are the best replacement for my 19in rims. They are very quiet and smooth ride. They handle heavy rain at interstate speeds with ease. Other cars slowed down I just kept on going with confidence. I haven't had a chance to...  Read More

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

Best tire I have ever owned! I am a freak about reading reviews and shopping before I buy. I would have bought the Continentals instead had I not seen a few new reviews right before I purchased. Those pearls of wisdom led me to the right tire for my car. I know this may sound like an infommercial but I swear these have been the quietest, smoothest, best...  Read More

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

Wow, what a set of awesome tires. I replaced my last set of higher-end performance tires with these. My last set got real noisey and were driving me crazy. I put these P7's on and quiet as a mouse! These tires are very quiet yet they handle fantastic. I've done about 8,000 miles of both city/long highway commutes and they are hold up very well. Great...  Read More

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

This tire is great. It handles better, is smoother riding and way quieter than the factory tires that came on the 2013 Crosstrek. They are great in the rain and you can drive along at full highway speeds without a hint of looseness. With the factory tires you sometimes had to slow down in heavy rain on the highway because the car would get loose and the...  Read More
