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

I replaced the factory Continentals the first day. I had a previous Tahoe with the factory equipment and didn't care for the noise and the just-average performance. I chose the Michelin Defender based on the good performance given on my aging Merc E320. Even though an SUV tire is quite different from a passenger car tire, the same qualities remained:...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Have run these about 1,000-1,500 miles since mounting them about a month ago. Exceptional tires. They replaced the daily a/s tires (Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric) I had on my car's 19-inch Cadiz wheels for the previous 40k miles. I also have a set of Pilot Super Sports for track. Far and away these tires are better so far than both of the others. Versus the...  Read More

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

These tires are some of the best I've ever owned. They're super sticky thus making them trust worthy around fast cornering. The tread pattern is not the prettiest thing to look at. the sidewalls are not a sporty as you would like but the overall performance makes it easy to look past that. I can't comment on turning responsiveness because I only replaced the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta ASX

I bought the Kumho Ecsta ASX as a winter tire replacement for the summer tires that came on my car. I am very impressed with the Kumhos. These are a great tire for the money! Handling is great, snow traction is decent, and ride noise is very low. I may keep them on my car all year long. I would recommend them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

For 85% of driving this tire is fine, but if you want to drive more spirited, be forewarned. You can feel the flex of the sidewall entering curves...so in a sense you steer left or right and you can feel the load shift on the tire, then the steering input takes effect. Not confidence inspiring. These replaced Goodyear OEM RS-A's. They had a much lower...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

My 2014 Audi A4 came with Continental ContiSportContact 3 and they lasted for only a year (mainly because of my driving style). Then I replaced all 4 tires with 255/35ZR-19 CONTINENTAL EXTREMECONTACT DWS 06 XL and even after 15000+ miles of extreme driving, they are holding good. I absolutely love them and would recommend them to people who like to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

These tires are awesome and very affordable, I replaced my old Good Year Assurance tires with these and I cannot be more satisfied. This may sound crazy but these tires in my personal opinion are way better that the Good Year Assurance tires If you are thinking about these, there is no way to go wrong. Look at the reviews and you will see why   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

Thanks to TireRack reviews and ratings, these quickly replaced the OEM BFG Radial Long Trails on my Xterra, tires that I previously described as providing irresponsible. (I stand by that assessment.)After the first 15,000 miles or so, I thought the Adventurer All-Terrains had done a fine job—not exceptional, but fine. In fact (and it pains me admit this),...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Bought these as replacements for the OEM Kumhos that came with my car... The Kumhos were ok as long as it wasn't too wet out. They were horrible in the snow... but these Continental PureContacts were very highly rated and that turned out to be true.This is a fantastic tire - great traction in the rain and light snow... and quiet as well. These are a bargain...  Read More

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

Just hit 10K on these tires and they still look, feel, and perform like new. I do have a staggered setup so I can't comment on further wear; I haven't driven the car in snow either so I can't comment on that either. Steering response is fantastic, as is the fuel economy and quietness of ride.These will be replacing the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S on my...  Read More

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

To date, I think these Michelins are a very comfortable high-performance tire with excellent wet-weather traction. I I don't have enough miles or weather on them to evaluate longevity or snow performance, but I have driven them in dry and wet highway conditions, and they are very smooth-riding, have great wet and dry traction, and impart confidence in their...  Read More

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

Brand new set of 4 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus 215/55 R17 as of May 10, 2017 installed on our 2014 Nissan Juke SV. We will periodically update our review as the miles add on. These tires replaced OEM Goodyear RS-A that lasted 51,000 miles. We were looking for a tire with a better warranty, improved wet performance for our Florida living, and a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I replaced my Bridgestone S04 tires with the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S and the 1st thing I noticed was the softer ride quality. The S04 was a good tire and I was happy with the traction but the Michelin is simply a better riding tire. The steering response does not seem quote as responsive as the S04 but the dry traction is incredible for a street tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I rarely write reviews, but felt compelled to do so for this tire.Just replaced my Ecsta Platinums with another set after 61K miles! I've rarely gotten more than 40K out of a set of tires before they started having problems - and never remember over 50K. 95% highway miles - and while I'm not aggressive with the tires, I'm no Sunday driver either. Rotated...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Bought these tires to replace the OE Bridgestone tires on my '13 Highlander after 50K of city/hwy combined driving. OE Bridgestone tires were okay, but I was looking for a better all season tire for all types of driving here in eastern PA.Reviewed all of the TR testing and reviews and decided to go with these Michelins. After 7,500 miles of fall, winter, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Replaced Toyo Proxies - which were harsh, and loud. Not at all pleased with Toyo Proxies for spirited yet civilized highway and back road driving.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Excellent tire! Significant improvement over the Pirelli P Zero I was running before (which I replaced early). This tire is much quieter and it has a lot more grip. With 560hp and AWD I have had no traction issues, not even on launch control. In the rain the level of grip is amazing. Ride quality is also a little better. Fantastic tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus

I have been a Michelin tire advocate in the past and these are the first OE Bridgestones I have kept on a vehicle. I have been extremely pleased with them. Over all performance catagories the tires, for the replacement cost, are better than Michelin tires. As a retired police officer I can attest to the Bridgestone tires performance in aggressive driving,...  Read More
