Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

These tires worked great for me from the time I put them on until I replaced them @ 68K miles. They were every bit as good in all areas as the OEM Michelins they replaced. I live in warm climate, so can not vouch for snow or ice conditions, but in both wet & dry conditions, they performed flawlessly. Cornering, braking, ride comfort & noise were all up to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

These Pirelli Scorpion Verde A/S Plus tires replaced the stock Yokohama Geolandar 91A on my CX5. The difference is night and day. The stock tires were noisy, always. The Pirelli's are head and shoulders above the stock tires, I should have done this a year ago. I have noticed significantly less road noise, much better handling and a more comfortable ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I have tried the (oxymoronically named) ultra high performance all season tires from the following major brands: Bridgestone, Michelin, and Pirelli--before trying the Hankooks. The Hankooks are understated in their abilities, but come through when called upon to respond to diverse conditions.Yesterday, when a ladder fell off a truck on the highway in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

OEM tire that came installed on my Honda Accord. I have sold countless sets of this tire when I worked at Sears. So I was very excited to use this product everyday. Honda's are known for road noise so I will say after the tires were broken in, I do hear the Tire Dragon Road noise roar On I-20 all the time. I put a lot of miles on these tires in under 2 years...  Read More

Second Season with Dunlop Winter Maxx Winter Tires

Last year, I purchased Dunlop Winter Maxx tires in the middle of winter for my 2009 Infiniti G37X coupe. These tires replaced the Graspic DS-2 and performed very well in their first season of use. But, how would they perform in season two?¬† So far, this winter season has provided me with a variety of conditions in which to further evaluate these tires....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

Just got these tires on sale at tire rack and was replacing crappy noisy nitro motivos which had abt 6000 miles on them with little no tread wear. Always trusted Goodyear and haven't had much success with Michelins (OE on this car and didn't get 12k out of them) switched to Nittos at advice of local shop but they were terrible as mentioned above not to...  Read More

Need Winter Tires for Stock 19" M3 Wheels?

As a high-horsepower RWD car that comes with summer tires, the M3 desperately needs winter tires if you are going to drive it through wintry weather. Both the E90 and F80 M3 commonly come with 19" staggered wheels, which makes snow tires hard to find. In previous years, the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60 was available in 255/35R19 front and 275/35R19 rear, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

2005-2009 Mustang V6 owners, UPGRADE TO THIS TIRE FIRST BEFORE ANY OTHER HANDLING UPGRADES. This is the best performance value replacement tire and most profound handling upgrade for your car when upgrading to the 18-inch X 8.5/9 inch wheel.The lower profile and moderately stiff sidewall eliminates the bouncing and bounding of the stock 16-inch tire, and you...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SR-A

This is the tire the truck came with from the factory. I am the only diver of this vehicle. I usually drive for maximum fuel economy; accelerate and brake slow and drive faster than most when cornering but am not driving so fast that I squeal the tires in corners. It occasionally pulls a lightweight aluminum fishing boat and occasionally hauls heavy loads in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I have had these tires on a 2008 Acura TSX as replacements for the OEM Michelin's. The reason for the purchase of these over the OEMs was because of the good online reviews and price difference.I consider myself somewhat of a spirited driver at times. I have no complaints regarding the handling, braking, and comfort of these tires. They've gotten me through...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

When shopping for tires I wanted: good gas mileage, good snow traction, low noise, good tred life. With the Prius, the gas mileage is so variable, its hard to know for sure what the difference in mileage is as compared to the OEM tires I replace - yet - it seems to not have been any different.For snow, we had lots of snow last year (Wisconsin), but I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

Bought these to replace the aging Bridgestones that were on the car when we got it four years ago. Have used for fun weekends, track DE, and a bit of AutoCross (fun). Very secure dry weather tire, can feel limits when really pushed or missing braking point, turn in is crisp, and they settle nicely on sweepers. Would probably not choose as only autocross tire...  Read More

Sneak Peek of New Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Since the original Bridgestone¬†Blizzak tire was introduced in 1993, Bridgestone has all but dominated the Studless Ice & Snow performance category with their Blizzak line of winter / snow tires. Their multicell winter tread compound dramatically increases winter traction in slippery conditions so much, that it changed perception of what a snow tire can do....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These tires lasted 65,000 miles before they finally needed replacing. The D/W/S indicator is an easy way to tell how much life is left (D was the only indicator still visible at the time of replacement) Great cornering, decent braking right up to the time of replacement.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I've seen a decent amount of snow in milwaukee this year and these tires are just outstanding. With the power of the STI I have broken them loose but they were still gripping the entire time, and the wheel spin was due to the amount of salt the city is dumping this year. I thought they might be a little squishy in a hard cornering situation but wow was I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Replaced a set of Yokohama AVS. I have noticed improved braking, ride, wet traction, and noise levels....truly improved the overall handling of an already excellent handling old car. I enjoyed the same kind of improvements when I installed the same tires in my 2001 Lexus IS300. I highly recommend These tires. I will try them on my 2009 Lexus RX350 next.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus ST RH06

These tires have been great from the moment I had them installed. After 30,000 plus miles, they still have more than 50 percent tread. Wet road traction has diminished a bit since new, but is still very good; this is normal with performance tires in my experience. That said though, I can still corner with confidence on dry roads without braking. I'm not sure...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiForceContact

I bought these Conti race tires for the first time to replace the Micheline PS2s on my 2011 GT3. My typical street able track tire has been RA1s or R888s from Toyo, but I was looking for something quieter. Long story, but I wound up cording my PS2s at the track and being forced to get R888s, so I have a perfect day 1 comparison of R888 vs these Contis. R888s...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx A1-A A/S

These are OEM tires on my 2009 Infiniti G37x. They are driven in spring/summer/fall and never in the snow. I put 37,000 miles on them.The Dunlop is an average tire with good road holding (dry/wet)on the highways. However it creates fairly loud noise on road joints. During the last year the car jarred on ruts and became very sensitive on the steering (pulling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle GT (V-Speed Rated)

I replaced a set of Riken Raptors with the Goodyears. Much less noise, much better ride, better MPG and improved handling. I drive both mountain twisties and long freeway runs, and in both situations these are superior tires. Good grip under hard corniering and braking. I haven't had them long enough to report on tire wear, as the Z3 is a third car even...  Read More
