Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

Mixed feelings about this tire. 1st off I mainly track the car and drive it there with these same tires. Man does this tire grip. It's also very responsive with great feedback. I was able to out corner way better cars than mine because of the tire, complete transformation. The downside is they wear really fast. 3 track days and 3500 miles and they are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Excellent Winter tires. If you live in the upper Midwest and above and own a Truck or SUV, these tires are a best buy if you need to drive in the snow. You can't beat the price and the snow traction. I was able to drive faster than conditions would otherwise allow without even a hint of loss of traction in the deep snow with these tires. For my wife's...  Read More

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

I did a lot of research before deciding on replacement tires for my 2007 Ford Escape. I p;laced an order for 4 of these Michelin Defender tires from TireRack. No matter where I looked the reviews and comments were very good. I had been driving Continental ContiTrac tires which were just OK, I wanted to try something different. These Michelin tires arrived at...  Read More

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

Had Michelin PSS for 18,000 miles. They were down to wear bars. Replaced with Pole Positions. Fabulousvride, low noise considering Max performance summer rubber. Overall handling is 95% as good as PSS. Wet traction is better than PSS, and ride quality is same or better. Car handles and tracks perfectly. Running factory psi specs of 35/36. Wear rate at 1,700...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport AS

The tires were OEM with my Subaru OB. With proper care, as a few people have noted, I've gotten 43K on them, with a 60/40 highway to city driving mix. They are rated to 40k. They are not off-road, or snow tires. They have been for me, a good quality tire and it does what it claims. I'm buying another set to replace them next week. How you drive also, effects...  Read More

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

Replaced original Goodyear ZP on 2007 Corvette Conv. with 35K miles. Immediate reduction in road noise and comfort of ride. Sidewall is softer and absorbs noise much better than original run flat tires. Eliminated humm from back tires that I thought was just par for the course for tires with this much road contact. Paid more for independent garage to install...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

Love these tires. What I loved best about these tires were their wet road predictability. Its amazing how far you can push the limits of these tires. These tires will be replaced after this summer and that's where my dilemma comes in. With a number of tires that have been rated better than these do I replace with the same tires, the devil you know, or go...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I purchased these Pirada SpecX's for my 2003 Murano solely based on the reviews I read here. I bought this vehicle new and they came stocked with Goodyear Eagles. Ride and traction and wear was average. I replaced them with a set of Michelins from Costco Tire. Wear and traction again average. The ride, not so much. They turned my SE into the ride of a pickup...  Read More

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

Wow. What a great tires! I was looking for my previous Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS replacement. These tires were extremely loud and uncomfortable. I also hated the cheap looking pattern. I decided to replace them with Pirelli P7 Cinturato and I could not be happier with my choice. Tires are so quiet that the only thing that I hear now is the wind at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion STR

I average 25K miles per year. As I approach 2 years on these tires (45K miles on them) I have decided to re-purchase them again. I will end up replacing them a little early due to the time of year rather than running them down to the ware bars. Mid January in middle Ga can get a bit slick, and it's not worth pushing them to see how far they will go. They...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I bought these tires in September of 2015. They replaced a set of Michelin Defender tires. I was pleased with the Defender but bought these based on Tire Rack's ratings. I have been only pleased with the Continentals! I will buy another set when needed. They wear evenly & well. They are quiet. They offer good traction all around. Fuel mileage was comparable...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Living in Minnesota winters have a tendency to be really tough. One day we will have -15 degree temps and it will be nothing but sheer ice, the next day it could be 20 degrees with wet heavy snow. So far the tires have been absolutely phenomenal! When I got them installed to replace the OEM all season Nexen tires I was expecting that the road noise would be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These are my second set on a second car. On both cars i averaged about 50,000 miles each. Ive driven in various conditions to a foot of snow, 1/4 of packed ice, heavy rain and easy 120*F roads. Minimal issues in comparison to Hankook and Eagle tires i have also had. These DWS have outlasted all tires i have ever had. I had my car in Germany and ran them up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

after owning 2 previous sets of the conti dws and was pleased with their performance, I once again replaced with with the DWS 06 model. What a mistake. I have put 18k miles on these tires this last year and am thinking that I will need to replace before winter. tread depth measures anywhere between 3/32 and 4/32nds on the tear. they have worn unevenly and...  Read More

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

These tires were recommended by the dealership. I was skeptical, but, bought them as replacements for the original equipment Goodyear Forteras. These Continentals have been a great all around tire. I will definitely buy them again. They are far superior to the Forteras.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Purchased this tire stateside with road hazard as replacement for General Grabber. Initially satisfied with all normal driving conditions, as per Tire Rack's recommendations. MPG increased by .5 over the Grabber, which was already an increase of 1 MPG over the OEM Michelins. Only detractor was road noise increased, but it was minimal and worth the slight...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

These tires replaced the OE Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02's that came with the car. Massive improvement in all aspects. Dry and wet traction is impressive. Quietness and smoothness is markedly better than the originals.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Installed on a 2007 Edge with AWD later in the 2015 season and had balancing issues. Ran them as I needed to have them on due to a storm. During the 2015 season, about 1,000 miles went on the tires. In the 2016, I took them back to my installer due to the shimmy that was present in the steering wheel. They road force balanced the tires and found road force...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A2

I replaced these tires on my CTS with the same OEM Goodyears at 35K because they were getting very loud and the ride was getting harsh. The new ones were installed and I have had to send back two of them because they failed when put on a Hunter Road Force balancer. I have not put the two replacements on yet and expect to do it today. These tires were OK when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

If you are looking for a smooth, vibration free, ride in an even wearing tire this is NOT the tire for you. It performed well in light/heavy snow and only average on ice. That said, despite perfect alignment, it wore unevenly. If you ran your hand from the back of the tire to the front, it was rough - like saw tooth wear. That translates into loud conditions...  Read More
