Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I purchased this set of tires to replace the OE tires on my Hyundai Sonata. I immediately noticed a significant improvement in handling and ride comfort. A lot of my driving is on I-35 between Denton, TX and Dallas, a stretch of road that has been under major construction and upgrading for the last year and a half, with no end in sight. Lots of degraded road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

73,000 miles and still not down to the wear bars. These tires get their share of both city and highway driving. Plan to replace with the same tires. Not sure why others seem to have issues. These have been flawless.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

In the first thousand miles, I am so far thrilled with this purchase. Other retailers tried to push me into tires that were much more expensive. Working with a Tire Rack specialist, I decided that these were right for my car, my driving needs and for me. I couldn't be happier. In the northeast, we get all kinds of weather, and this year was no exception. I...  Read More

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

I purchased these tires as a replacement for the Goodyear Eagle RS-As that were on the car previously. I tend to drive gently and sit in traffic most days...I need a quiet, smooth tire with good traction for less than 70MPH situations. This General Tire has filled the purpose so well, at such an affordable price ($110/tire) that I am BEYOND THRILLED! I'm so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

OEM Tires for my car were the Asymetric Summer tires so when it came time to replace them at 30K Miles I opted for the All Season version. I'm not disappointed at all. Living in SE PA we see all types of weather and temperature. I managed on my Summers through two winters and clearly my cars performance was reduced at temperatures below 45 degrees. The A1...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I bought these tires for an aggressive look and to have options for any road conditions I might encounter. I am very happy so far. I have put 41,000 miles on them and can go more than likely another year without any concerns. I will replace them soon to get the deep aggressive tread pattern again even thought I have a little more than 1/4 of an inch of tread...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance CS TripleTred All-Season

Great tires. I am going to replace them with the same ones at 60,000 miles. I am a tire and brake fanatic and I probably could get another 5-10,000 on these but I do not like riding skinny tires and skinny brakes. They are close to the wear bars and it is time to change them. I have never had to replace the front disc pads and I have almost 100,000 miles on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance CS Fuel Max

I believe these tires are too soft of a compound for this heavy suv. I will admit I have not rotated them every 5k as I have brought it to the dealer for the free two year maintence which is about every 7,500. The tires are wearing terribly on the outer edges. I have one more rotation and then all four will need replacement. The most I will get out of these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

Replaced Goodyear crap that came stock on the Malibu when it was new. Excellent tire at great price with good comfort and handling. Had a previous set of these on an Impala SS.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H431

My experience with these tires isn't as bad as most reviews here, but definitely not what I would consider a pleasant one. Tires were OEM on my Kia Optima SXL (2.0L Turbo). I commute approximately 70 miles each day on highway speeds. Some stop-and-go with traffic. In straight-line dry acceleration/deceleration they're adequate. I really don't push the car in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Bought these due to my mileage at the time being a little on the high side. These tires are very good...except for an Evo. I feel I have lost the feel of the car and it's been replaced by 'comfort'. Yuck. I feel like I'm guiding the car rather than driving it. I wouldn't brand the tire as an outright performance tire either...its more suited to a luxury...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

My car came with Continental ContiContactPro SSR Runflats. The ride was so uncomfortable and you could feel every little tiny bump on the road. The worst part is I drove over a pot hole and blew the sidewall out...so much for run-flats because I couldn't go more than 5 miles. Took it to the dealership, luckily I had tire and wheel warranty to cover the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA11

I bought this tire to replace a set of Firestone Touring Affinity Tires. Those tires lasted over 55,000 miles but experienced the occasional flat and had loud road noise. The Kumho Solus tires have greatly exceeded my expectations over these first 10,000 miles. I cannot notice any treadwear thus far whatsoever, which makes me believe these tires will live up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I got these tires on the vehicle when I purchased certified pre-owned. These are terrible in the snow and, now I am finding out they hydro plane in the rain as well. I have a AWD vehicle that cannot perform in the snow. This defeats the purpose of having AWD. These tires are terrible I am doing mostly highway miles but I have no trust for these things. I...  Read More

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

I've had the luck of a weekend of changing weather conditions and about 200 miles to test out these new tires. I wasn't initially giving BFG any consideration, but the testing and ratings of Tire Rack and its customers were enough to finally convince me. Sure enough...I am thoroughly impressed! They are amazingly quiet compared to the Michelin Pilot Sport...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Sport

At almost 27,000 miles, I have 3.5 to 4mm tread left. I could go a few thousand more miles, but decided to replace now. I always kept air pressure at recommend settings. New identical tires including balancing was $1550.00   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

This is my 4 set of ExtremeContactDWS's I have always enjoyed the ride and grip, wet or dry with these tires. I started with them on a 2000 Ford Tarsus, and now have them on a 2006 BMW. They hold the road when I expect them to slip under stressful conditions.The tread wear is faster than expected, but I can live with it. The tread wear indicators are a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I just replaced the original Continental CV95 with these Platinums and the are possibly the best tires I've ever purchased. Important to my driving habits are Road Feel, Cornering, Braking, Acceleration & Wet Traction. Also Treadwear, Durability against NYC potholes and Value are vital. Said and done, this tire exceeds my expectations!This past Summer I had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I purchased a set of these in 285/70-R17 on 17x8.5 wheels to replace the OEM wheels on my truck. The truck is otherwise stock and there is no rubbing at all over bumps or at steering extents. Most of my driving is highway or rough back roads and a bit offroad. So far I am quite impressed with this tire.It has excellent hydroplane resistance (tested in a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

Originally Equipped with GOODYEAR EAGLE LS-2's, I was so pleased with the 73,000 miles achieved, I bought the same thing to replace them.Now, at nearly 160,000 miles, the treads are down to 4/32. (In Calif., 2/32 is the legal minimum tread depth). I see the EAGLE LS-2 is now offered in H rating, so this may be my next set. (I anticipate a more responsive...  Read More
