Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08

This is the third set of Yoko AD07 or AD08 I have purchased for my Porsche. I am a track rat, but have dedicated tires/wheels for the track. This is my daily driver, and is driven 50% city, 50% highway, including in the rain. These tires are fantastic with the best dry and wet grip available in a street tire. The turn-in is sharp, but not quite as good as...  Read More

When it comes to forgetting your worries, some meditate, some play racquetball and some drive all out on a closed race course.  Part of the reason that Kenny (from the video above) is having so much fun is that he's not worried about his tires. He knows Tire Rack has him covered! When it comes to choosing the right tire for your Porsche 911 Turbo (997), which...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I run a dedicated winter tire on this car, so deep snow rating is not applicable. These tires replaced a set of Bridgestone Potenzas, And I was impressed enough with the performance to install a set on my 1985 Porsche 944. They will also be the next set of tires on my 2009 Lexus RX350. Tread wear has been FANTASTIC. After 15,000 miles D W ans S wear...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-02 A

Replaced original rear tires with same tires from Bridgestone. Only drive on dry days, never in snow and rarely in the rain. Solid tires, responsive, minimal traction loss. Does wear as expected. Thought of trying a different set, but was recommended by my porsche mechanic to stick to the originals. No regrets. As always, hassle free shopping and delivery...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

I purchased this tire based upon test results. Tire Rack has always provided great tests, no other tire store that I know of provides this service. They really liked this tire because it gripped like a Summer tire, but was an all-season tire. Well, the grip is really good. But the tire has two big faults.1. Tire squeal! This tire squeals loudly way before it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z III

I purchased these tires for a road trip, 500 miles one way, and I'm very pleased with them so far. I haven't had a chance to drive in the rain yet but, the dry traction and level of road noise is very good. I've gone thru 3 sets of PS2 and 2 sets of Michelin AS. I don't drive it like I'm on the track but I do have fun on the occasional off ramp. These tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

Like how PA4 communicates to driver in ice or snow conditions. First winter on the PA4 but has proved grippy and secure. Can tell when tire will break away on fresh or packed snow and what it takes to bring it back. More sophisticated than an average snow tire. In times past used Nokian, Blizzack, Dunlop, and many standard or high performance snow tires on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I drive a heavily modified Porsche 951 making around 450 hp and 450 ft-lbs. The torque comes in quick and hard, it takes a really sticky tire to not turn to smoke in 1st and 2nd gear. These tires are the best I've ever had on this car, I'm running the 265/35/18 on a 10 wide wheel and its a little small, my next purchase will be 295/30/18's of the same tire....  Read More

Big Improvements in Snow Traction for Your 2014 Porsche Cayenne GTS

Our test BMWs are fun, but I have really enjoyed our Porsche Cayennes. For a large SUV, the Cayenne can really move. It's a Porsche, so the power is to be expected, but the cornering stability at this size and with this weight is a pleasant surprise. If you've recently picked up a 2014 Porsche Cayenne GTS (Turbo S model is pictured), I'm sure you've also...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

My previous set of tires were Toyo Proxes. I burned thru them in about 7,000 miles. I do 6 to 8 track events each year plus drive the car whenever the weather is good. These are simply the best gripping tires I have ever owned. The ride of the car has improved and the traction of the tires have made up for some over-driving errors at the track (Miller...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax HP

What a difference a new set of tires makes! My old worn set made my ride so rough I felt like I was driving a Porsche (minus the handling) lol. The new set makes me feel like I have my old comfortable, smooth, quiet Solara back again. Dry acceleration is great, no wheel spin on a hard start. Cornering is almost as good as the first set of OEM Michelin V...  Read More

Michelin Pilot Super Sport Still Number One

Having been on the market for over a year-and-a-half, the Michelin Pilot Super Sport still reigns supreme as the highest-rated tire in the Max Performance Summer category. While certain tires may occasionally hold the top spot for a few months, it's quite a rare feat to see such prolonged dominance.  Frankly, I'm not surprised as this tire was a favorite...  Read More
