Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

OE summer tire on my Performance Pkg '15 Mustang GT 6sp. I've tried to find opportunities/conditions to justify Ford's selection of this tire, but after almost a year in a variety of temperatures and weather conditions I'm really looking forward to replacing the tires, even with plenty of tread left. This tire loses grip under too many conditions, even when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I've done a lot of work on my car - engine now produces 380 hp, performance suspension, Brembo brakes, sport wheels, so I needed high performance tires to go with it. At the same time, I didn't want tires that would wear too fast, so ultra performance and race tires were out. The Pilot Sports seem to fit the bill.Cornering is excellent and very easily...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Replaced the OEM installed Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires with only 13,000 miles on the clock and installed the new Michelin Pilot 4S tires. I've had prior experience with some Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires, as well as two sets of Michelin PSS tires on different cars, and Michelin knocked it out of the park again.Summary = Superb traction and handling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Installing these tires immediately improved everything I liked about my car. Replacing the original equipment Michelin Primacy MXM4 ZP runflats with the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 dramatically improved the ride and noise - no more crashing over bumps that jarred me and scared my passengers. Regular road noise went way down and the tramlining went...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PS91

I changed the stock Continental ContiSport tires on my A3 Sedan at around 2,000 miles since I was unhappy with the grip they had, the car would just wheelspin all the time, triggering traction control, and on turns the car would push excessively on corner entry. After deciding many different options looking at forums and friends' advice, I decided to go with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I purchased these tires to replace some balding Radar RPX900 tires on my corolla wagon. With the worn tires, there was a humming noise I kept hearing, which lead me to believe that it was the wheel bearings. Also, traction on the old tires were pretty much gone. As soon as I put on these new General AltiMAX RT43 tires on, it was like had been given a new...  Read More

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

I've only had the tires for a couple of months. We had a brief snowstorm on the EastCoast this month and though it was a few inches, the tires handled very well. They are GREAT! in the rain and handle very well but I didn't want to push my limits. On dry roads, let's just say if you want to push your car, these tires respond and you'll gain more confidence...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

While I have just recently had the tires installed I have found them to be very good and better than the Continentals that came with the car. So far all aspects of the tire have been better that the original tires and I would not hesitate to purchase them again. I did have a minor vibration issue and found that the shop that installed the tires did not...  Read More

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

My main tire purchase focus was comfort, road noise and dry traction. I reviewed technical and consumer ratings for several tire options including original equipment Eagle RSA and Michelin Pilot AS 3+ / Primacy MxM4tires and the Pirelli Conturato All Season +. In the end, I selected the Pirellis and I am very happy so far. One tire dealer said I didn't need...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

These tires were installed as a replacement for Pilot Super Sports. They were installed 2 days before a very spirited road rally which was the first real drive I put them through. My first observation is that they seem to ride somewhat softer than the PSS. That could be due to the fact the previous tires were 3 years old and the compound was hardened by heat...  Read More

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

I recently purchased these tires to replace a set of Pirelli Pzero Nero @ 22K miles that came with the car. A big difference in stability (adhesion to surface on bumpy roads and on highway speeds 80+), cornering is more linear with less correction, and the most dramatic reduction in road noise. I live in southern Florida, so no data on how they handle snow,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I purchased a set of Driveguards from my local Cadillac dealership and they installed them with a road force balance. The car originally had Bridgestone Potenza Run Flats. My car now finally rides like a Cadillac because of these driveguards. They are absolutely better than the Potenzas in every way except for cornering. Don't get me wrong my car still...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Cinturato

I purchased these tires with steel rims for my recently purchased Fiesta ST. Due to purchasing the car in late November, I knew I had limited time with the Summer only tires from the factory. I saw these and thought I would give them a try. My impressions as of late are that these are great winter tires, even for the winter driving enthusiast. On the dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I love these tires! I replaced the completely adequate Michelin Primacy mxm4 tires which I put nearly 60000 miles on with these Premier AS tires last fall. I plan on using my 06 AWD Magnum RT as primarily a winter car since recently purchasing a 15 Challenger RT. I believe that the improved wet and snow traction is well worth the premium price point. They...  Read More

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

How could I possibly lose with a speed-rated all-season tire? Not. Looking for a less expensive replacement for BFG touring tires, I found these at Tire Rack. Reviews were good and price was perfect. I went for it. Tires look great with a nice sidewall profile and design. Asymmetrical tread design looks advanced but does it work? You betcha it does.They tend...  Read More

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

Overall, I'm quite happy with this tire. It was a huge improvement in wet and winter conditions over my stock tires that came on my Golf. I bought them right before going on a road trip to Rochester, NY, where I experienced blizzard conditions nearly every single day I was there. I was amazed at how well they performed in the snow! They got pretty good...  Read More

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

I purchased a set of these for my eleven year old Audi. Over the years I've run a variety of tires from max performance summer to all season ultra high performance, and comfort was usually last on my list. As I've matured with the car, comfort has been a higher priority than flat out performance. When refreshing the car recently I chose these tires matted to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I had this tire on a 2006 Honda Civic drove 5 winters amazing tire purchased a 2013 Honda civic bought the same tire for it great in snow dangerous on dry roads rear of car is so sloppy it is very uncomfortable to drive!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Purchased the MXM4 to replace the oem Goodyear LS that came with TLX V6 AWD - the Goodyear is a very poor choice for this car, shame on Acura for this decision. I was looking for luxury level performance, and the MXM4 delivers without question. Quiet, smooth, dampens road jolts and bumps extremely well. Handling is not sport-level, but is a significant...  Read More
