Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (H- or V-Speed Rated)

After buying them in Jan. 2014, I've been trying to be more attentive about them--pressure, alignment, etc. 45K later, they still have 7/32 left in April 2016. After finding out that Tire Rack existed and reading reviews on them, it was nice to see I inadvertently bought a higher quality tire. I've read other peoples reviews about them wearing out quickly,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

There is not enough to say about these tires, this is the tire you should buy. I drive on the highway 5days a week for work and try to spend as much time as I can outdoors on the weekends. Tires are quiet on the highway, but with the quality of a Ford Escape, you're still going to hear road noise. My use on the weekends would involve fishing, hunting,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

I've purchased Kumho tires from Tire Rack previously for several other vehicles including this one over a 16 year period and this set rates as high in most categories than the other models. I always got great long-term comfort, wear and satisfaction from them, all were high performance-oriented tires with H, V and W speed ratings. This set has proven to be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These tires replaced the stock Potenza S001 Run-flats that came with my 2015 335i from the factory. To be honest, the performance difference between these tires and the stock run-flats is nominal. I was a little disappointed because I expected a huge change from all the reviews I read. Don't get me wrong, the Michelin tires are better, but only just. Maybe I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I changed out the factory run flats on our X6 almost immediately as it came with high performance summer tires (I will never understand that for cars going to snow prone areas). I didn't want to sacrifice performance for winter capability and I didn't want two sets of tires (though I understand the argument). I only had one other experience with Conti's and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS

Got just over 30k miles on this tire. I was very impressed with these initially. They felt a bit softer than the ultra High performance OEM tire but that was expected for a touring tire. Generally they gave me best of both worlds, performance and ride quality. My biggest disappointment is the tread wear. According to my dealer the fronts are at 3/32 and the...  Read More

Best All-Season Tires for Mazda's Mazda6

The Mazda6 is Mazda's mid-size car entry offered since 2002. The third-generation hit the streets for model year 2014 as a four-door sedan with options of either manual or automatic transmission. Without a six-cylinder engine option, some may suggest it loses appeal to some people. However, fuel economy numbers in the high 30s will grab your attention. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone FR740

This tire was oem 215/45/17 on my new Corolla. I just performed the 5k rotation myself and wish to post my observations. I got this car to supplement a 2004 Corolla with 70 series tires as my comparison. The biggest change I noticed was ride quality . The 45 series is excellent and has no road noise that bothers me. The car is quiet at freeway speeds to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I bought a 4 tire set 215/45/17 true contacts to replace oem Firestone 740 on a 2015 Toyota Corolla S. First impression is wow! Based my decision on tire rack test and reviews posted here. Tire rack test results match my sentiments rather closely. My opinion here is to compare the performance against what came on the car. Not to bash the firestones, but the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

We bought a set of 4 tires for our 2003 Honda Odyssey to replace 4 Michelin high-quality tires that would not balance. Once we put the Continentals on, it was like driving a different minivan!!! Very smooth, quiet, secure ride on both the local roads and highway. It is now a pleasure to ride. For the tires' first 1000 miles, my wife drove to Cincinnati, OH...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I replaced my OEM Dunlop SP Sport 5000 tires at 22,000 miles on the Mazda 6 GT with these. I use them for commuting to work and in the winter I plan to run dedicated winter tires. So far this summer these have been a great deal quieter and smoother than the OE tires, and I am very happy with the ride quality. The professional installation at the dealer on a...  Read More

DBA 4x4 Survival Series T3 Brake Rotors and Hawk Pads on Jeep Wrangler

In the past, we've discussed the brakes on a Jeep, but it was a basic Centric rotor with Hawk LTS pads on all four corners. For my own Jeep, I wanted to try out a little higher rated rotor and find out what all the hype about DBA was. DBA stands for Disc Brakes Australia, and they are known for producing high quality performance rotors for many...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Absolutely the best set of tires I've ever owned. The run flat tires that came standard on my Civic lasted less than 25k, and were utterly useless for traction on dry pavement, much less wet, or heaven forbid, snowy or icy road surfaces. After a lot of research, I settled on this tire, and am absolutely thrilled. At their current rate of wear, I should be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I purchased these tires just in time for a solid snowfall to arrive ... not unusual in NE Ohio. Some previous critiques of the tire indicated they were a tad noisy (they're whisper quiet ... certainly better than the OEM tires on the car) and also that they were not quite as good as some others for traction (they are - again - especially compared to the OEM...  Read More

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

Replaced OEM Dunlop at 25K miles with Ecopia due to bad ride comfort and noise level.Switched to H-rated Ecopia and immediately noticed better and softer ride on bumpy road. Road noise has been significantly reduced as I can listen to radio with volume level 2 even at 70 MPH on highway. I dislike Lexus stiff suspension on RX since I bought the car new. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance All-Season

Purchase these tires specifically because of the mileage warranty of seventy thousand miles, these are my third set of Goodyear Assurance tires on two different automobiles. Quality and warranty are important for my tires, because I treasure my family and my own safety I want to be able to depend on the tires. With the high prices of tires today and what...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

These tires are an excellent choice for a heavy SUV. They are quieter than most car tires and have no vibration. Tracking qualities are excellent, and they perform very well in a New England type of climate. Value for money, this is a wonderful option.   Read More
