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

Replaced a set of Bridgestone driveguard RFTs the dealer threw on my car to replace the OEMs. Wow, what a huge difference going from a run of the mill grand touring tire to a UHP tire like this. The car feels like it accelerates faster, insane grip around the corners. Heavy rain no problem. Did a run up a mountain where it got it got as cold as 14 at the top...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

I did not order my Focus RS with the winter wheel and tire package from the factory - it was not an option for my early order. But when I found out that the factory winter wheel and tire package came with this specific tire, I decided to buy a set of 18 wheels with the Alpins mounted from Tire Rack. I could not be happier with my choice - Ford chose these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Ice Zero FR

I only have about 1500 miles on the tires with my WRX and so far am very satisfied with my purchase. We had an 8 inch snow last week, which made getting around hard, but my WRX just drove as if the roads were dry. Sure, I was careful, but I could stop, start and change direction without any problems. True, they are not the best handling tires on a dry road,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I work in a location ~160 miles from home during the week. I drive home on the weekends to be with my family. My home is in a place that people from the boonies call the sticks. Anyway, I am in Virginia, and we don't get the same amount of snow as probably many people who buy this tire live, but when we get it, it takes VDOT days to get out here to clear the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I purchased these Bridgestone Blizzak snow tires based on the many positive reviews they received. These snow tires are unbelievable in that they are extremely quiet and the ride and handling are almost as good as the standard Michelin Primacy tires that are on the car during the rest of the year. Their grip in snow is fantastic. I also highly recommend...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

I have only driven these on dry days(only time I take my car out). But they are amazing so far. I have a full exhaust on my air cooled 911 so the car is noisy itself. I don't hear any tire noise. I'm coming off Continental sport contact tires and these blow them out of the water in terms of grip. I can't seem to break the rear end loose anymore even pushing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I live in the midwest in a state that is known for encountering quickly changing weather. I need to be prepared to drive in all types of weather conditions. Hot,cold, below zero temps,dry, wet, ice, light and deep snow, we get it all. I am a have been a huge Yokohama fan and was set to purchase some for my (new to me) '13 Azera. After much consideration,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Replaced OEM Run Flat tires with these new tires. Seems like it is a different car with the road feel and performance. I will never purchase Run Flat tires again after this experience.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

I recently purchased this set of tires for a second/winter set of wheels for my MX-5. My MX-5 is my year-round daily driver, so having the second set is a necessity. My summer tires are Bridgestone S-04 Pole Positions that came with the car when I purchased it 2 months ago. It was like driving a block of ice on an ice skating rink. So, I had to make a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I installed these tires on my 2009 Pontiac Vibe which came new with Goodyears. I was very dissatisfied with the ride of the Goodyears, hard compound, felt every bump in the road. I actually considered getting rid of the car. Put on the Michelins and thought I was driving a totally different car. Nice smooth comfortable ride, great handling and response....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred

Tires were bought and put on my wife's car but I drive most of the time. These tires are so much more comfortable than the factory tires (Kumho). The ride is quite and so smooth it seems like we bought a new car. They were a little more expensive than tires we could have purchased but we felt confident they would provide us with everything we were looking...  Read More

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

The Michelin Sport A/S 3+ are super sticky on 328i 2010 Sport suspension. I staggered tires to match sports package, which was not set up prior to used car purchase. The previous owner did the economic non sport setup where all tires were the same size. The new setup increases car performance in ways I love. It has improve my ride comfort (luxury-goes over...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

The tires were purchased for winter driving. Old tires had 47,000 miles and were low. I have had the opportunity to use the tires in the snow in the last Cleveland snow storm. they meet the expectations of a tire that will keep me safe. I used the tires prior to the snow storm and tested the hydroplaning to a small degree and they worked very well. stopping...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Winter Slalom KSI

I purchased these tires with wheels for winter driving in North East PA. I live in an area with lots of hills and I see plenty of people slipping and sliding and on rural roads where you don't have a lot of room before you are in the ditch. I really want to stop and turn and I believe winter tires are best for me where I live.I'm very happy with the Tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Purchased these tires last year, and have experienced everything from snow/slice/ice to dry pavement in them. They have exceeded my expectations in every possible way, and I consider them to be a major upgrade over the OEM Dunlops my car came with.I was a bit concerned going with an UHP All Season compared to a set of dedicated snow tires, but I wasn't let...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I purchased my second set of continental DWS tires today at the Tire Rack. I live in South Bend Indiana about five minutes away from their location. My rear tires were worn down to where the S was gone. This morning I drove over to their office in a snowstorm and could barely make it there. With the new tires installed I drove home in the same conditions...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

My 2013 Dodge Dart came with Kumho KH16 from factory (205/55/16) brand new when I purchased the car in 2014 it had 13,000. 2 years later those tires lasted me to about 56,000 Miles. After doing my own research and chatting with Tire Rack online, I went ahead purchased these Kumho TA71 over the General Altimax RT43 and I believe I made the best decision. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I got these tires put on in advance of a snowstorm. The stock tires that came with the car were very mushy in the corners and they had very little rain / snow traction. Even with all wheel drive, I'd routinely lose traction. So, getting the Bridgestones put on was a treat, albeit expensive. >I came here to write this review because after driving in the snow,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I am a Michelin lover. Got a set of four tires the other day for my 2003 Toyota Corolla LE. These tires provide a very smooth ride. I used to have Michelin Defender on the car installed by the previous owner (brand new, he purchased them from Sears. Made in Mexico).. I had driven 20,000 miles on them, half of the tread was gone. The car was roudy even with...  Read More
