Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP ZP

This is the second set of these tires. The first set lasted for 65,000 miles and true fully I could have gone another 10K but I would rather be on the safe side. I do rotate the tires about every 6000 miles, a pain but it keeps the tires from uneven wear, and accounts for the longevity of the tires. The run flats are a bit harder ride, but worth it.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Absolutely the best set of tires I've ever owned. The run flat tires that came standard on my Civic lasted less than 25k, and were utterly useless for traction on dry pavement, much less wet, or heaven forbid, snowy or icy road surfaces. After a lot of research, I settled on this tire, and am absolutely thrilled. At their current rate of wear, I should be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have been nothing short of pleased with this tire. My last set were the run flat variety and were harsh riding and noisy and this tire is amazing. I get the same if not better mileage and also the tire is super in the rain and deep water (as much as a low profile FAT tire can be) and is very good in Northern Illinois/Chicagoland winter snows. Some of my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I tried a set of cheaper tires they lasted about a year and were junk so I payed a little more for the DWS's and they have been great, my car is lowered with coil overs and is pretty stiff the DWS tires smooth some of that stiffness out but still handle sharp, they work great in rain and really good in snow during acceleration and cornering, but they don't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 RunOnFlat

The numbers that I have entered are from my experience so far driving the car with these tires. I must disclose that you have to get the tires warmed up in order to have them perform greatly as for the ride roughness, I have the MRC so it will be much smoother than a non MRC model. Everyone complained that these tires are horrible but they really are not. I...  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 Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I was looking for a replacement for the OEM run-flats on my 2014 corvette. Settled on the Pole Positions and I have been pleasantly surprised with the performance of these tires. They bring out much more of the performance capability of the 'Vette. They are quiet and extremely smooth, and well priced. With the OEM tires, the rear end had a tendency to step...  Read More

Looking for New Tire and Wheels for Your Sixth-Generation 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS?

The fifth-generation Chevy Camaro was a smash hit with its combination of style, performance and charisma. What could Chevy do for an encore? They made the sixth-generation even better by tweaking the styling without blurring the Camaro's identity. Even greater strides were made in engineering as Chevy shaved over 200 pounds of weight, stiffened the chassis...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I was riding on my stock run-flats for about 8,000 miles and I hated them. They hugged turns nice and I felt grounded to the road but overall felt like I was riding on rock wheels. These new Continentals feel like I'm driving in clouds. Tread is mean looking and bumps in the road feel soft which shocked me. Ended up driving over small potholes purposely for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Replaced the stock Goodyear Run Flats on a 2012 BMW 335i Coupe, with these and couldn't be happier. I was concerned with driving this car in the winter in the Cleveland, OH area. Although we had a relatively light winter this year, the times we did have snow these tires performed almost flawlessly. My wife has a brand new FWD Toyota Highlander, with a snow...  Read More

What are the Best Run-Flat Winter Tires?

Some newer models of luxury and high-performance vehicles like BMW and Mercedes-Benz come equipped from the factory with run-flat tires. Most of these vehicles have no spare tire, so many drivers who use dedicated winter / snow tires choose to stick with a run-flat design. Over three years ago in the article, "Which Run-Flat Winter / Snow Tires Should I...  Read More

Test Video of the Run-Flat Bridgestone DriveGuard in Sweden

The appeal of run-flat tiresis quite understandable. Getting a flat tire is always inconvenient, but it can be especially distressing in situations with poor weather, when a tire fails on a high traffic highway or in an unsafe area. It's easy to imagine multiple situations where having a tire that can still be driven 50 miles after air pressure loss would be...  Read More

The Revolutionary Bridgestone DriveGuard

 If there is one single thing about tires that seems to unite consumers almost unanimously, is people's dislike of the ride quality of run-flat tires. Surely, the technology has its advantages, like the ability to drive the vehicle to safety up to 50 miles at 55 mph. In addition, some vehicles don't come from factory with a spare tire, which makes a run-flat...  Read More

Bridgestone DriveGuard: A Year in Review

This time a year ago, little was known about the Bridgestone DriveGuard, a tire that's currently our best-selling run-flat option. Over the course of a year, this tire has proven itself in a wide array of weather conditions, has been subject to internal testing and has climbed to the very top of our consumer reviews. While perhaps having a slightly harsher...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

When my wife's 2011 X5 was new I exchanged the Michelin Latitude Tour HP run-flats that came with it for regular non run-flat Latitude Tour HP's in an effort to fix the positively terrible ride quality. It helped a great deal but on the factory 19 wheels these new Latitude Tour's were extremely noisy -- I mean really objectionable. At about 40K miles...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Run Flat

I live in Aurora, IL and have to drive to Des Moines once a month. I've had these OEM tires on my BMW X1 for a year and today there was an ice strom in Des Moines. These tires could not have handled the roads any better. Just a really great feeling of control. Ride is good, handling is good, grip is good, noise is good - bottom line, these are really good...  Read More

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

My initial response to this tire after just a couple thousand miles is very positive.The BFG's are very quiet and much smoother riding than the Continental run flats that came with the car. Dry traction has been outstanding and I am unable to make these tires squeal no matter how hard I try. We had a couple days of hard rain and I wet traction was equally as...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP

These are amazing run flats. They have completely changed my enjoyment of my car. Handles better ,with amazingly improved ride quality. The original Bridgestone Potenzas were so harsh, I would bounce on any raod that wasn't perfectly smooth.The difference was noticible immediately. I actually checked the tires to make sure the shop actually sold me the zero...  Read More

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

Ditch the OEM run-flat tires! The Pirelli Scorpion Verde Plus tires are much smoother, ride quieter and provide a greater sense of road feel and manners than the OEM Bridestone run-flats, which were a rougher ride and wore out after less than 26,000 miles. Why BMW equips their cars w run-flats is a mystery to me since the run-flats ride is rougher, tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I bought these to replace the original Michelin MXV4 tires because the Michelins were completely worn out at 30K miles. Based on every review and advice I recieved from Tire Rack and other sources the Conti DWS should have been a great tire. I even had them on a previous 2005 Lexus and they were great on that car. They have outstanding handling and steering...  Read More
