Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

This is the 4th set of Duelers I have had. All have been great tires for the money...quiet, easy riding yet reasonably responsive and great wet traction. This set replaced Continental run-flats that were good tires but much harsher in every regard than the Duelers. The improvement in ride quality and noise level of the Duelers made the cost of an emergency...  Read More

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

I got these tires because of the tire rack test review. They had the best ratings and for the best price. I am a very spirited driver and i tend to drive like im on a race track. These tires held up to everything i put them through; mud, sand, gravel, dirt roads, going over the occasional curb to skip traffic and the occasional race here and there. These are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A

Excellent set of tires as compared to Kumho Solus(uneven wear after 25,000 miles)) and General Altimax(uneven wear and quality decline after 20,000 miles). Plenty of tread even at 65,000 miles and decided to get new tires(Michelin Premier) as road noise was becoming apparent(beginning of tire being compromised).   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

This is the second set I have put on my BMW. These tires are great! Very happy with the purchase. I do both highway and city type of driving in this particular car (my daily driver) and I have been very pleased with they way they have performed and will buy them again. My only issue is that after they get about half worn, they get rather noisy! In my BMW it...  Read More

Potenza RE-11 Positioned for Long Run at the Top

There’s no doubt temperatures around the country are at summer time highs. This time of the year is great for cookouts, hanging by the pool…and pushing your car’s traction and handling levels. And no tire is better suited for that in our Extreme Performance Summer category right now than the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11. Currently ranked the top tire in its...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

These tires are great in rain. Excellent ride quality as well. If you're looking for a run flat, these are a great choice. Can't really give a meaningful review on snow/ice performance, but for wet and dry conditions, these are truly great tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

I love this tire ... on this car. It's actually my wife's car, but since she doesn't commute anymore, it's there for both of us. The OEM tires survived for about 50k miles, but they were puncture magnets and finally, when I found a screw imbeded in the tread about an inch from a previous plug, I decided to swap them out. I have to admit I chose the Kumhos...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These tires 100% live up to their reputation. They perform beyond well for a spirited street car. Road holding and feedback is fantastic, the ONLY drop from the horrible RTF's is a slight drop in steering response but that's as to be expected. The improvement in ride quality even for these ultra thin sidewall tires from the RFT's is staggering. It was beyond...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I want to provide my initial impression of the Extreme Contact DWS 06 compared to the Pirelli Cinturato P7 A/S Plus that I just returned after 1,000 miles. I replaced the original Good Year Eagle RS-A with the P7 and noticed a significant reduction in steering response, handling, and road holding on the highway. Shame on me for going from a HP tire to a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

By virtue of my car being an AWD slightly-high hatchback, it's tough to critique certain things like the tires' contribution to steering response. Nonetheless, I'm quite happy with these tires. I only needed to replace my rears, but for the cost of just those two tires in the OEM Pirelli run-flat model, I was able to afford a full staggered set of the...  Read More

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

This is a follow up review from my original I wrote after only 500 miles. Now with 6500 miles and having driven in snow, on ice, in rain, on nasty city streets (I live in Chicago), on Interstate, State, and county highways I can say that purchasing these tires was the best decision I have made. I live in Chicago but cover a sales territory from Detroit, MI...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

The original Michelin PS2 were great except they don't last long (this was expected due to the high grip levels) but since I've gone through 2 pairs of rears this is becoming quite an expensive replacement. The Conti's are almost 1/2 the price so I had to give them a try. In terms of wet traction they are on par or better than the Michelins, in terms of dry...  Read More

Is Tire Shaving the Right Solution?

You drive an all-wheel or four-wheel drive vehicle and a tire goes flat and needs to be replaced. Should you replace the entire set or just the one in need of repair? You may or may not know that your vehicle's transmission and/or differential requires all tires to be the same, or close to the same tread depth in order to operate properly. Running tires with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

We didn't realize the car had 18 wheels at purchase. Not a problem, except we usually run Michelin's, which are pretty expensive in this size. So we checked Tire Rack ratings and found these tires...and we have been pleasantly surprised. The tires 'sing' at highway speed which is a little noticeable, but really not an issue at all. They are a lot quieter...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

These tires perform as week as they did when they were new. I have 8/32s tread depth on all for corners. When they were installed I immediately notice a 10% increase in gas mileage. The ride quality and noise were great and only the ride quality has fallen a little due to the decrease in tread depth. I take this car all over the USA from Wisconsin to South...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I did about a months worth of research trying to find the right tire for my speed3. My car is upgraded and is pushing 300whp and 330wtq. I was having issues with traction in 3rd gear on dry pavement with my Yokohama YK580's and the wet was almost a joke! So long story short, after video after video and review after review, i stumbled on these tires just a...  Read More
