Best Replacement Performance Tires for Your Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang has been an American icon since its introduction over 50 years ago. With the 2011 model year, Ford brought back the legendary 5.0 moniker that was made famous in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The new 5.0 was rated at 412 hp and 390 ft./lbs. of torque. This popular GT model is typically equipped with a tire size of 235/50R18. However, we...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

These are good tires. No, these are great tires. Extremely more superb in quality than the tires my car came with, Good year Eagle F1s. Yes the Pirellis P Zeros are a wee bit more expensive, but its my bottom in that drivers seat, that counts for a whole lot. I can feel the difference between the tires I was driving on before, and the tires I am driving on...  Read More

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

Bought set of Michelin Defender LTX MS this time. Prior tire purchases for our Tahoe include Michelin Latitude Tour, and Goodyear Fortera Silent Armor. Smooth and quiet being most important quality for our cars. I can say that all three of these tire models perform very similar, all very smooth and quiet. I probably would have bought second set of Fortera...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400

Typical O.E. tire quality and performance. Standard ride comfort, squeals easily during cornering, limited traction in wet and light snow. Compared this tire on O.E. wheel set and Volk CE28n wheel set, identical sets of 225/55r18 Duelers H/L 400. Both tire sets were O.E. on 2015 Subaru Forester XT Touring models with similar manufacturing dates.Currently...  Read More

I currently run two sets of tires on my Mustang her in New England, 3 seasons of my Original Stock Pirelli P-Nero Zero High Performance Summer Tires and 3 winters of Driving with my Blizzak Performance Winter Snow Tires.

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

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
