Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

I bought these tires after getting 55K from the OEM Michelin's. I have never had a better set of tires in the rain, it almost seems as if I am driving on dry pavement. It could be light rain, or downpours, I have never slipped at the intersection or hydroplaned on the expressway. I have not had a chance to drive around in snowy conditions, we just haven't...  Read More

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

With oldish Bridgestone Potenza tires, my 1996 Porsche 911 C4 had a severe case of tram-lining, also bucking on every expansion joint, and noisy ride. With plenty of tread left, I thought it was the front end, and replaced shocks, tie rod ends, etc, which helped only slightly. The tires finally wore in back to the point of needing replacement in the fall of...  Read More

Still breaking in but the ride is definite improved over primacy mxv4w/40k km that it replaced. There has not been much ran so this review is for dry weather over asphalt & concrete city & highway only.Feels Like new suspension even though shocks were replaced about 2yrs ago.compliant with speed bumps yet communicate sufficient about asphalt & concrete...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Just got these on my 128I, the factory tires on the front were worn out and the run flats seemed to give a harsh ride so I jumped on Tirerack for replacements. I come from a background of Jeeps and always favored the Michelin's and BFGs. SInce this is a new tire I wanted to give it a try. These tires are leagues beyond what was originally on my car. The ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

I drive a heavily modified 342whp/331wtq 03' Subaru Impreza WRX swapped to an Sti and I have a set of these in 235/40/18s mounted to Sparco Assetto Gara wheels. This is my daily driver and also my have a blast on the back roads car. They handle very well and have decent wet traction, but what I love about these tires so far has been how long they last. I...  Read More

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

I replaced the original Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric tires after about 30,000 miles. They were noisy and very easy to turn over off the line. Never had any issues with dry traction or grip in the corners but wet driving FORCED me to slow down. As they accumulated miles they remained predictable and consistent but did get much louder as they got closer to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T RH-S

This tire was phenomenal. I'm now replacing them at 94,000 miles, but they still have plenty of wear left on them. I'm wanting to sell the Jeep but I don't want to do so with tires that old and I do need to replace the shocks as well. I did rotate them at least a couple of times.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination M/T

After owning my truck for over 12 years and having to replace tires every year, I had a Firestone shop convince me to install these tires on my truck. I was skeptical when I had first bought them, with Firestone's reputation. I can say that after 2.5 years of running these tires, that they have been great. I do rotate them about every 10,000 miles and have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

Bought these to replace OEM Continentals. Huge, positive difference. Felt like I'd installed a new set of shock absorbers/struts. They smooth out bumps and potholes, sidewall roll on turns is definitely minimized, reducing oversteer. Significant reduction in noise. Deep channeling maintains confidence in the wet, only hydroplaned when going way too fast for...  Read More

New Method Roost Wheel is a Great Fit for Jeep Wrangler

In a previous post, "Jeep Wrangler Wheels and Tires", we discussed using 17x9" aftermarket wheels with -12mm offset, which is about 4.5" backspacing on a Jeep Wrangler. That sizing, for many people, is the magic combination to fit 33" or 35" tires on the Jeep JK. I was in that same mindset, but when I saw the new Method Roost wheels we're getting in, I knew...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I got these tires as warranty replacements for noisy Contiprocontacts that where loosing chunks or rubber on the shoulders at 500 miles. The Contipurecontacts offer great grip on dry surfaces and really grab on to the corners, they are firm, but bumps or potholes are absorbed without much jarring or shock. The one quality of these tires that I find...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

First off the treadwear, because I'd give it a 12 if I could. They have been nothing short of astounding for a tire in this class. A full set of super sports was the first purchase I made when I got my car 3 years ago. Since then, I have taken the car to the track for 7 weekends, twice my girlfriend also went out in the car, totaling approximately...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

My rating reflects the set that I just replaced after approximately 52,000 miles. I purchased a replacement set of ExtremeContact DSW's yesterday, and drove 400 miles on the interstate. There's a real difference between riding on a 4/32nd tread depth versus a 10/32nd. The worn tires transmitted more road shock than the new tires, which is understandable....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek AT20

I don't understand why this tire gets bad reviews. They are standard on my 4Runner, and were on my 2004 4Runner. I was going to switch for the (In my opinion) best SUV tire made, the Goodyear Silent Armour, however after a few miles I decided to wait until a replacement is needed. The recent heavy rain in CA was no problem, I have been to the snow twice, and...  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 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I bought these tires and a set of 18 Hyundai rims to replace the 19 factory wheels on the car. I had two hydroplaning incidents and a terrible ride quality during my first 10,000 miles. The change was like night to day. The cars ride quality was 50% better along with an improved feel in cornering an no issues in some extreme rain and 6 deep standing water! I...  Read More

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

I've had them long enough to have driven in almost every condition on road, including deep snow, ice, heavy rain, dry highway, secondary roads with tight turns, and some highway cruising. I don't have any meaningful off-road experience to report.These tires transformed the ride and tire noise levels to those of near car tires in our 2006 Honda Ridgeline RTL....  Read More
