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

I bought this tire to replace the OE Michelin Latitude tires that came on my JGC. After 42,000 miles on the Latitudes they had become unusually loud at highway speed and they had worn faster than I expected. I was reluctant to purchase a replacement set of Michelins because I have been a Goodyear guy for my last three Jeep Grand Cherokees, going back to...  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 Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Bought these tires as a replacement for the OEM set, and what a difference a good set of tires makes. It feels like I'm driving a different car. I consider myself a very aggressive driver. On dry pavement, these tires are fantastic. They seem to be able to handle any corner at any speed, there's no tire chirp on hard acceleration, and braking is outstanding....  Read More

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

Love/hate relationship. Tire handles well, great balance of safety in dry and wet, in light snow and wintry situations. WORST noise I have ever experienced from any tire I've purchased in the past 35 years. My mechanics tell me they are not wearing evenly and I am fastidious about correct pressure and rotation. Perhaps I got a bad set, but I'm not coming...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These tires were rated no:1 when I was looking for new tires for the X3 and since I already had them on a 03' 330i ZHP, I decided to get them. Having all wheel drive and some considerable clearance on the X3, theses tires perform better than expected. It was like driving on regular road when driving in 4-5in. of snow. They are quiet, has an incredible ride...  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

There are a plethora...  Read More

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

I'm impressed with the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 even though I have only driven less than 500 miles. I agonized over the performance/cost trade-off with my previous replacement tire favorite, the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. The entire experience with Tire Rack was impressive - the customer service and the efficient transaction handling - plus setup for local...  Read More

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

At 16.500 miles it was time to replace the run-flat Dunlap tires. I really liked these tires except they didn't last long. I have switched to regular tires and bought an air pump, green slime and tire repair kit. I have not had a flat in 50 years and hope my luck continues. The only problem with these tires is the noise. They are very loud with the top down....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

I purchased the Ford TSB recommended Michelin Latitude Tour tire to replace the OE Continental ties which were noisy.The immediate result was less road noise, improved ride and bettter MPG. But what really has impressed me is the lack of tire wear over many thousands of mostly highway driving. The originally installed Conti's were loud and a harsh ride on my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I use these only during spring through fall, and put on four Blizzaks for the winter. With only 6500 miles so far I'm not sure I can accurately address the durability/tread life of the tires, but generally speaking I'm pleased with them. They seem to have plenty of grip in both wet and dry conditions though I tend to spin one wheel very slightly (I don't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

I purchased these tires in the spring of 2011. I drove an average of 100 miles per day on them for the first two years. Since then it has been highway and city mileage. These tires are very smooth and quiet. They have great dry and wet traction and I felt very secure at highway speeds. They also brake very well. The wear has been even and consistent over all...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Just passed 60k. Still have almost half tire life. I was originally concerned about the tire only 8/32 but the tires have held up. These tires do everything well but shine brightest in heavy rain with standing water. Have no complaints. The Premier's replaced Hankook's far superior ride, handling, tracking, cornering and stopping. MPG originally decreased...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA11

These tires replaced older Michelins and so far I'm impressed with everything about them! I have the same type of tire on my new Dodge Grand Caravan. It came from the factory that way and I really liked them on the van. So decided to try them on my Honda Civic and they seem great to me especially for the price!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

I am not quite sure what tires the previous people are riding on, but that is not my experience. I bought my 2014 Hyundai Veloster Turbo two years ago brand new. I have driven this car very hard and whatever the car could give I took it. With that being said, I have driven in heavy rain with no problems and well above the posted speed limits. I have taken...  Read More

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

Had these tires for <500 miles, so this is an initial impression. These are very stable on the Miata; much more so than the RE760's that I replaced. Excellent wet traction and I have yet to break them loose on dry pavement. The handling is precise and immediately responsive, and the noise level is on par with the performance nature of the tires. I will...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

Tire is exceptional in the rain or in the dry. Very quiet. Only problem is staggered fitment which meant I only got 20K on rear tires but Bridgestone replaced 2 tires for price of one so I can't complain since the fronts should easily make the advertised 40k. Better value than Michelin, Pirelli, Goodyear, Continental or Dunlop on a 2011 Corvette.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have a history with these tires, and worked out a deal to have them installed when I purchased the car. I actually still have two of the original tires and two replacements(DWS06), because of a lot of potholes and road work being done in the Albany NY area. I love the car and the tires, and when Mazda starts building the Mazdaspeed 3 again, will replace...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

We're getting ready to replace our original tires on our 2013 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid and thought we would leave a review on these tires. We live in Florida so we can only review in wet/dry conditions. These tires have excellent road traction and even in wet road conditions, I might have broke road contact briefly in maybe 3 instances in 3 years. These are low...  Read More

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

A great Tire! These replaced the OEM Potenza RE050A which were summer only tires and useless in the winter. I went with these so I could drive on them year round and they were exactly what I hoped they would be. 90% of the traction as the summer only, good enough to get around in light snow, quiet and decent wear. I high recommend them as a high performance...  Read More
