Best All-Season Tires for Late-Model BMW 3 Series

Model year 2012 saw BMW introduce the F30 3 Series. The major change was this was the first time the entire lineup used turbo charged engines. While the array of configurations is expansive, including four door, station wagon, hatchbacks, as well as numerous trim level options (this blog focuses on the standard four-door sedan). This car sports 225/50R17...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I replaced my PAX tires on my 06 Honda Odyssey van with the Continental True Contact 235/65R/16 tires. I am putting this review out there even though I have only driven 350 miles because I am that impressed with them. My daughter is getting ready to take a long trip in my van so I will have another update after that. To be fair I had run the PAX tires until...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

These tires replace a set of Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza that are about 6 years old with 5/32 tread depth and significant cracking on sidewalls and between the treads. After having the tires mounted and balanced, I immediately took a 1,100-mile road trip with three passengers, our camping gear, and the gear for a fourth person in our group who was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Just had them mounted, replaced OE continental express (yes, the old tires were really worn and had chunks missing off the tread and were squealing on tight speedy turns but oddly enough they actually had sufficient grip still). I cannot really compare to the old tires so my early review is kinda of a stand alone. First impressions: very quiet rolling and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

I wanted the 18 wheels on my Challenger and bought a SXT. Replaced the 235/55/18 with these Dunlop Signature HP 255/55/18. The original were touring tires and had a good ride. These wider ultra high performance Dunlops have turned my Challenger into a Mini Scat -------- Cat. They handle much better and only weigh in at 2 extra pounds. Plus the wider tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

These came mounted as OEM for my new 2015 Odyssey, and although they are very quiet, responsive, great in the rain and handle well, they wore out very fast. I rotated them every 5,000 miles so the wear was even throughout but after 18 months of ownership and 24,000 miles on them they were worn down to the wear bars. I also use a set of winter tires/wheels...  Read More

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

Replaced the OEM goodyears with these michelins on my 2010 infiniti g37x. Big difference in the overall ride. Quiet, smooth, excellent grip on dry roads. Best tire I have every driven in any vehicle in wet conditions. Confidence inspiring no matter how wet. Not as firm as the original tires and as a result a little less responsive when pushed. A fair trade...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

The original tires on my 2008 BMW-X3 with M-sport suspension were Michelin Pilot HX MxM4. I have been driving the car for the past 5 years and hated every minute of its ride. Not only the smallest bumps but also the wave on the road used to transfer to my body. It was very annoying. I preferred the ride of my Z4 with sport package to this car! I recently...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Purchased these tires a few days ago and had them installed by Tire Rack themselves at their South Bend location. These tires replaced a set of Michelin Defenders with 4/32nds tread left, and my review will be comparing these two. Compared to the Defender, grip and braking is vastly improved. These tires (the Premier A/S) just don't lose grip, regardless of...  Read More

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

I bought these tires in November to replace some worn out goodyear rs-a that came on the car when I bought it. I have owned several different uhpas tires, including Dunlop (can't remember which ones), Falken 912, Falken 512,etc. These are by far the best I've driven. They're quieter than I expected. More comfortable by far than the goodyears. Better at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

After reading dozens of reviews of this tire, by far the most accurate was posted on 4/5/2016 from the owner of a Lexus GS 350. That review is exactly the way I feel about my G37x sedan, which is a dynamically similar sports sedan. This tire lives up to the high marks for a smooth, quiet ride and great traction. It's an excellent choice for most cars, but...  Read More

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

Just put these on my 300C Hemi, wow am I impressed. I replaced the OE Firestone's with these and saved $170.00 but I feel got a much better tire. I only have 500 miles on them but they balanced perfectly, steering response is nice and ride quality is impressive. Snowy ride into work this morning was uneventful. I will update after a few thousand miles.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I ordered subsize wheels (16X6.5 KOSEI K4R LT GREY) and 225/70R-16 MICHELIN PREMIER LTX tires. They were delivered, mounted and balanced, to my home. I wanted to improve the ride on my 2008 CRV with lighter wheels and the smoothest riding tire possible. Each one weighed eighteen (18) pounds less than the Honda wheel/Goodyear tire it replaced. I am pleased to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is my second set of Continental Tires and this set is better than the OEM Continental Tires. In between I had a set of Michelin Primacy tires which I replaced unnecessarily as it turned out for another reason. I consider these to be nearly equal to the Primacys with the Primacy's having the edge in ride and tracking, almost like riding on rails.But here...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

My 2002 911 Carrera C2 does spirited daily driver duty as well as a few PCA autocross events each year. I have the factory 18 wheel option. These tires replaced the Hankook Ventus K112 that lasted 13,137 in similar use. After the fifth run in yesterday's autocross I noticed a thin white line of tire cord exposed on the Contis rear driver's side tire at the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

42,000 miles combined city and highway driving. Tires have 6/32 tread left and I will probably replace next summer. We get a lot of snow here and these tires have done well in all conditions.Wet weather traction is very good as well, highly recommend these.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I purchased these tires in an effort to maximize comfort and quietness on the road. These tires are exceptionally quiet for the first 55-60k miles.The tires have shown excellent manners in all areas of driving - with excellent cornering grip. I knew the time for more tires was coming soon within the last 5k miles (around 60k miles of use), as the tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

My Acura TLX came with Bridgestone Potenza's and wore out at 22,000 miles. 400 Tread Rating and just basically ----ed!!! Anytime it rain, I was sliding... so happy to replace with Continental Extreme Contact DWS 06! They grip and are awesome... my driving style is true South Florida...I drive it like I stole it...fast on the highways at extreme speeds and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

I bought my car brand new and these tires came on the car. I drive 1100 miles per week to work and I got the tires rotated with regular maintenance oil changes. I will not even consider purchasing any other tires for my car. I am very satisfied with the smooth and quite ride these tires gave me. I am replacing these tires after 100,000. The tires are not as...  Read More
