What to Buy When the Michelin Pilot Super Sport is Backordered

The Michelin Pilot Super Sport is an outstanding tire. It combines top-tier wet and dry traction with responsive handling, making it a benchmark in the Max Performance Summer category. Unfortunately, it has been out of stock in many sizes this summer. So what do you do if the Super Sport has an indefinite backorder in your size? It depends on why you wanted...  Read More

The Best Tire Choice for Your Mazda 3

As far as options go in the compact car segment, the Mazda 3 offers a competitive package that is more visually pleasing than some of its rivals and is also a fairly pleasurable car to drive. While it certainly will not set any track records, the car has many strengths that make it a popular choice among consumers on the road today. Due to the high...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge Run Flat

Have these tires on BMW X5 50i and could not be happier. Tires have excellent winter traction and provide a smooth, quiet ride...Got a real test in recent Michigan winter storm. Lots of vehicles in the ditch and the X5 never broke loose on the ice covered roads. Very impressive tire just wish the prices would come down a little. Oh well, I would rather know...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I live in the country with a very long driveway and travel on country roads. So far this tire has been very good in deep snow and on ice. I have not lost any traction in moderate snow depths, or on black ice conditions. I am very impressed with the traction this tire provides in a rear-wheel, high performance car. The price is great and so far no problems in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

I live in Southeast PA, and my 3 season tires are Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3s (which I've also reviewed). I purchased the Sottozero 3 for below freezing driving months, frequently harsh winters, and to retain the sporty driving characteristics of my car when road road conditions are good. It's not easy to find a winter tire that is good in many road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Amazing grip in lousy conditions. Excel on ice. Very predictable. The best snow tire I have ever had and that list includes Bridgestone Blizzak, Pirelli Scorpion, Yokohama, Goodyear. And the best part is that they are extremely quiet. Something rare for a snow tire. I followed the recommendation of the TR rep and he didn't lead me astray. Can't beat TR for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Snowcontrol Serie 3

Great snow tire for the Fiat 500 Abarth. Good performance in snow/ice and allows no-drama commuting in poor conditions. Blows right through light and deeper snow. Can get a little bit of hydro plaining on slushy mix once they salt streets but only at higher speeds and deeper slush/water. Handling in general is great at 7/10s but I purposely dial it back a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H426

These tires came new on my 2014 Ford Explorer Sport. I usually remove non-Michelin tires as part of a purchase deal or shortly thereafter. I was worried about these tires from the get-go especially reading the Tirerack reviews. In this size range there are not a lot of alternatives and I was not impressed by the Michelin Latitude's ratings or price so I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 (W-Speed Rated)

Quiet, at least for now, compared to the P Zero Neros that were OE on the car. Dry handling is comparable to that of the Pirellis, wet and light snow traction is decent but certainly not exceptional. Ride comfort on the harsh side, but again tolerable. Have not driven in deep snow yet so can't comment.Overall satisfied, particularly considering the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Rosso

This is the best way to get new tires on your car. The price was unbeatable. I ordered 4 new ones online. TireRack shipped them directly to my local NTB and I simply went there to have them installed. Mercedes dealer did not have these in stock so I was looking for them online. So glad I found TireRack.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

These are the OEM tires on my 2009 MDX. Over the last 15 years I have had several sets of Goodyears, several sets of Bridgestones, one set of Pirellis and one other set of Michelins. These tires have performed the best of all of them. While these Michelins are not perfect, I would definitely consider buying them again if they were priced competitvely.These...  Read More

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

After reading the reviews here on Tirerack and careful consideration I purchased a set of the Pirelli Cinturato P7's. I haven't looked back. Excellent traction, very quiet, and reasonably priced. Although I'm not looking forward to Winter, I'll be interested to see if the tires impress me the same during cold and snowy weather.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

Previous tires on this vehicle were Pirelli PZero (OEM), Bridgestone RE760 Sport. Living in SoCal the wet performance is estimated based on limited experience in damp conditions, without standing water and sustained rain. In general these are excellent tires, not quite as grippy as the PZeros and significantly grippier than the RE760s. Wear seems to be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

Third set of tires for the very heavy Q7 TDI. Had been a Pirelli car but took a chance on these Yoke's .... Really love them! Wearing well and are a perfect new pair of shoes!!! Won't change ever! A great tire for the price   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

I live in a climate with snow,thaw,ice,snow cycles and the Pirelli Scorpions are the BEST winter tire I've ever had! I've tried every brand of tire over the decades of winter driving, and this is the stickiest and best rolling tire, and the price point is very reasonable for a premium brand like Pirelli. I very highly recommend Pirelli Scorpions.   Read More

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

I replaced the OEM Michelin Energy Saver R/S tires on my Fore C-Max Hybrid at about 39,000 miles. The Pirellis feel beefier, and the C-Max rides significantly more comfortably and quietly with them on. With both tires, the handling is precise, though the turning radius is abominably wide with either.One unanticipated difference is that the vehicle's fuel...  Read More

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

Thanks to Tire Rack I was able to find the perfect tire for my diesel VW Golf. The P7 is superior to the OEM tires, Continental Contis, that came with the car. The Contis lasted nearly 59,000 miles but were stiff, noisy and offered only average traction in ice and snow. The P7 have been impressive for the first thousand miles in mixed winter driving with...  Read More

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

Bought these for my Honda Ridgeline. This is the third set of tires on this vehicle. The first one was the OEM Michelin LTX M/S which dry rotted after about 15,000. The second set was probably the best all weather tire I've had. They were Nokians WR G2 SUV with the snow flake symbol on them but they were good in the summer as well. The big trade off with...  Read More

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

This is a great tire. We just got a light snow in the area (under 5 inches) and the tire preformed like a pro. There is a slight bit or road noise and they aren't quite a 'soft' ride wise as some of the other similar priced grand touring tires but it's still more the acceptable for this tire.   Read More

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

I've been using the stock Goodyear F1 Supercar that came with the car. This is my 4th set of tires in 2 years. While I love the handling of the F1s, getting only 7-10K miles wasn't cutting it. The F1s are amazing super stick tires even when the start getting low, super low tread and their handling is awesome. A couple years ago I switched to Perelli Night...  Read More
