Best Tire Recommendations for the Toyota Camry

In the early 1980s, the Camry was introduced into the North American market as Toyota's mid-sized sedan. Many iterations of the car have been produced, including coupes, wagons and convertible versions of the car.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology

Wow! Replaced original Michelin Energy LX4 with 60K miles on them with these Conti ProContact EcoPlus in 235/60R17. I could not be more pleased. They are so much better in all aspects to the LX4s. Better traction, better noise, better ride. My Odyssey feels like it is on rails and at times I almost forget I that am in a mini van. I would buy again in a heart...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

These tires ar wearing very good and I would say some what better than the michelins that they replaced. My main complaint is the sidewalls are to soft. The vehicle does not handle as well as it did with the previous set of michelin tires.Hankook makes a good tire that could be made much better by increasing sidewall strength which would make it equal to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

Hankook Optimo H727 tires only lasted 22,672 miles and about a year and a half. Noticed right away that the Optimos felt like driving on marbles. I replaced them with Michelin Defenders and the Michelins seemed to have a much better grasp of the road, and felt more secure.May 9, 2012 I purchased 4 Hankook Optimo H727 Tires from Tire Rack. These tires are...  Read More

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

Great tires! I had stock Michelin Pilot MXM4's and I thought they were good, but these Pirelli's are quiter and feel more solid very responsive! I can feel a notable difference.My main concern was that they would not wear as well but have held strong. (Not to mention they were about $300 less than replacing with the Pilot MXM4's) If they get close to the 70K...  Read More

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 Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza

Replaced my Odyssey's stock wheels & Michelin tires with Acura MDX wheels & these Bridgestones, and I'm glad I did. Pros: MUCH better treadlife Quieter Better wet-weather grip & stability The only con is decreased steering response with these tires (and since each wheel/tire combo weighs less than the OE setup, I'm pretty sure it's because of the tires).I...  Read More

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

FAR better than the OEM EL42. Doesn't even feel like an RFT. Handles very well on dry, good on wet, decent on snow, not good on deep snow even with AWD (you should buy winter tires if you encounter deep snow often), and NO A/S tire is going to be good on ice, so don't expect this one to be. Noise level is significantly better than the OEM, but only good, not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

After 14k miles with lots of spirited driving and about 80 1/4 mile passes at the drag strip I am now having to replace the rears. The fronts are still around 6-7 32nds. These tires have been amazing - driving through all but the heaviest downpours with no issues, cutting 1.8x 60' times at the track on stock suspension, and giving a very comfortable ride for...  Read More

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

Those tires replaced Continental snow tires on my BMW 528 XI. I love them, they are very quite and comfortable. they look very nice on the new M5 wheels as well. I always had Michelin and Continental, but this brand is very good as well. will buy again for my van.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

The Drive Guard tires replaced the OEM Bridgestone Potenza tires with 36,000. I was ready to sell the car because of the poor ride, bad handling and noise with the Potenzas. The car now rides & handles great with no tire noise. The Drive Guards are probably the best tire I have every owned and would highly recommend them. I only have 200 miles on the new...  Read More

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

Truck came with Goodyears, couldn't wait to get rid of them I could barley pull my boat out of the water. Bought these and ran them for 60K. I have nothing bad to say about these tires. After they wore out I decided to buy Sumitomos (cost was a factor). WHAT A MISTAKE! 18K on them and they're toast! Almost killed myself in the rain, and to pull my boat out,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

The tire looks great and gets great reviews from a insurers and manufacturers. I am not a tire aficionado but it seems to ride fine. My issue is that the right front tire blew out on the road at the start of a 300 MI trip. We had it replaced but now the same wheel with the replaced altimax has a puncture. Could be dumb luck but in the 20 years I have been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

I use this Mazda CX7 in all weathers around Pittsburgh, with occasional road trips to up-state New York, Canada, and across Ohio. Winters cold, snowy, and icy. Spring fall rainy, Summers can be very warm. Generally pleased with the all round performance and noise levels, which help make this vehicle fun to drive. However, had hoped to get more than 30,000...  Read More

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

I bought these All Seasons( with low expectations ) to replace my fast wearing yet sticky Summer Pirelli P Zeros. When new the Pilots are squishy while cornering even moderately aggressive. This lessens and eventually goes away around 500 miles or so.I live in Eastern Pennsylvania and these tires got me to and from work in the snow all winter. My S4 didn't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred

I replaced the OEM Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max with these tires. I know it's a small sample size as far as miles goes, and I have not driven with them in the Winter, but so far they have been an extremely nice tire. It's kind of hard to compare a new set of tires to a set that had over 55,000 miles because almost any tire you put on will handle better, ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Bought the Pirelli Scorpions after reading several positive reviews. Normally buy Michelin, which these replaced but took a chance. Very happy I did, these are great tires! My Q5 is definitely better in the rain vs. the Latitudes that were on it when I bought it. Very quiet and handle well. Wear is apparent at 15k miles with no apparent changes in the tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

We installed these on my wife's 2013 Audi Q7 TDI Premium Plus. Upon install, the car had a bad shimmy which was fixed with a road force balance (revealing a badly out of round tire, which was replaced under warranty). Since then (and with another road force balance -- a requirement for luxury cars), these tires have outperformed my expectations. They are...  Read More
