Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

These tires were much better than the OEM Kumhos (Solus I believe) on my 2011 Kia Sorento SX. I actually had some confidence driving in light/deep snow with the Michelins. They weren't as quiet (or comfortable) as I thought they would be, but they were still miles better than those Kumhos.I've got almost 45,000 miles on them with just a couple flats...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I replaced the tires which were on the car when I bought it. Before, the ride and noise was unacceptable, and now the tires make it ride like a different car altogether. I don't regret the decision to purchase these tires.   Read More

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

My initial impressions of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S are as follows: First off, I replaced OEM Goodyear Wrangler SR-A's at the 35,277 mile mark. My bad; failed to properly rotate.Overall a better ride; quieter on all roads, smooth, comfortable, better traction dry and wet, increased confidence all around, especially driving in rain, as they grip the road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Replaced the runflat tires on my car with these. Never looked back. It's quite good improvement compared to the old version and that one was already very good. This one has great traction in all sorts of conditions dry, wet, snow, ice. Cornering stability is a bit weak, but not sure if that's due to my heavy car or the tire. It's noisy on concrete, but I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Run Flat

The Pirelli's replaced the OE Bridgestones. The differences are enormous. The Pirelli's are an all around better tire. In both wet and dry conditions they significantly outperform the Bridgestones. Since we live in the Colorado mountains a great deal of time is spent in snow and ice. While these tires do not match a set of good snow tires, they perform much...  Read More

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

Replaced the Dunlop tires that came on the car. I was quiet surprised by both the comfort and performance of these Pilot A/S 3+ tires. I haven't put many miles on them yet but expect to enjoy these tires for many miles to come. I recommend these tires for anyone looking for performance tires with some snow traction.   Read More

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

The wet traction and cornering stability of these tires is great! They aren't as quite as the OE Goodyears that they replaced; there is a hollow droning that is present at speed. But, I will take a little more road noise in exchange for superior road holding ability and wet weather traction. The dry traction is nothing to sneeze at either. I have not had the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Chose the ExtremeContact DWS06 as replacement for the O.E. Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400 on my Subaru Forester XT Touring. Both the Bridgestone and the Continental are mounted to Volk CE28n wheels.Noticeable upgrade in every performance category. Any additional cost for moving from the Highway All-Season category to the Ultra High Performance All-Season is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

The tires were great at first, But after about 15,00 they became unbearably noisy. They were so loud I thought I must have a bad wheel bearing. I just had my car inspected and was shocked to find out that it wouldn't pass because of the tires, The tires only had 18,500 miles on them. They were rotated every 5K and wore evenly, just wore out. These tires were...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I currently run two sets of tires on my Mustang her in New England, 3 seasons of my Original Stock Pirelli P-Nero Zero High Performance Summer Tires and 3 winters of Driving with my Blizzak Performance Winter Snow Tires. It was time to replace the stock summer tires that had worn down to almost nothing with only 35k Miles.First of all the thing I noticed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

Fantastic replacement for the Goodrich Radial T/A Tour I used to have. Wanted something that would last longer than 50K miles and, from just looking at the tires with 25K, they are going to blow past that point with no problem. These tires grip like crazy and it doesn't matter what the conditions are. I live in NC and our weather is constantly changing but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

My truck is back.... The old factory Oem Goodyear wrangler sa's were not all that bad. But after 40k miles they were loud, wearing out, and made my expedition ride extremely rough. These tires are not cheap. But if you are reading this you know enough to understand that you are looking into a premium tire for your truck. These michelins are worth the price...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

Replaced a set of Goodyear LS-2's with the Yokohama Parada Spec-X's. Have 8,000 miles on them and so far, they are just awesome. Road noise is very minimal and they are extremely great handling in dry or wet conditions. Also like the look on a Touareg. Very stylish. Unknown how many miles I will get out of these, but at $150/tire, I am good here. Great tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

First off let me say that I got these tires used for the back of my 2 wheel drive work truck. They were about 75% gone when I got them. However they have been the most fantastic tires I have ever had on this truck. I plan on replacing all 4 with that tire. The side lugs Aid in the off-road capabilities amazingly, my truck is only two will drive but when I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G95A

The Geolander H/T G95A has performed much better than I'd expected from a set of OE tires. I live in the DC Metro area and since I've owned the Forester dealt with a few major (for this region) and a number of moderate snow events, as well as significant rainy spells. When I was faced with Snowmageddon in Feb. 2010, I found that once I cleared a bit of space...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

These Michelins were OEM when we bought the car new. We now have 62000+ miles on them with over 50% of original tread remaining. At about 55,000 miles I began to hear some growling coming from the right front and thought it might be the wheel bearing pack. Before changing out the bearing pack I rotated the tires ahead of schedule and the noise moved to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE050 RFT

These tires came new on my 2015 MX5 Grand Touring. I love the handling that they provide in the twisties and the highway ride is surprisingly smooth and quiet. I do not autocross my car, nor do I drive it in foul weather if I can avoid it. For my spirited backroad driving and vacation use, these Bridgestones are excellent. We took our car on a 2300-mile trip...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

4th set of BFG KO's and these KO 2's are the best. Seem to last longer than original KO's and new designs are great. Will always replace my tires we BFG.   Read More

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
