Is the Bridgestone DriveGuard Right For You?

Compared to conventional run-flats, the Bridgestone DriveGuard rides better, while offering better value and wear. As a tire that can also be installed on some vehicles that didn't come equipped with run-flats as Original Equipment, many could be skeptical to the idea of switching to run-flats on their vehicle. Isn't a flat when most of us notice our tires...  Read More

Do you or a spouse travel on business? Maybe you have a child just learning to drive or perhaps leaving for their first year of college.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Switched from OE non-run-flat tire to the DriveGuard tire within the first 3,000 miles on vehicle in order to add the benefit of a run-flat capable tire. I did not notice any difference in ride, handling, traction or noise levels. It did add peace of mind while driving knowing that, in most instances of a flat tire, I would not have to worry about pulling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Bought the DWS Conti's for my C5 Corvette based on reviews and I've also had a set on a BMW M3 that I drove year round. They are very,very quiet and they ride much nicer than the OEM run flats. The softer sidewall results in steering response that is not as sharp as summer tires, but once you turn in, the tires grip well and are predictable. Traction is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Put these run flats on after I had put about 36000 on my OEM Continental tires that came with the car. Road noise was much better and handling was improved quite a bit. I do like the way my BMW rides on these. I would recommend getting a set!!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Tire does not ride like a run flat. Great tire for summer or wet, not as good as oem tires on ice or snow. Not a major issue whereas that's what snow tires are for. Solid tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II Run Flat

This is the best winter tire I have ever driven on. The steering responsiveness isn't quite as good as my summer tires, but I believe that is due to the smaller treadblocks and the nature of the winter rubber compound. I only notice the change in steering responsiveness when switching back to my summer rubber. I use these tires on a RWD car in Chicago and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge Run Flat

Have these tires on BMW X5 50i and could not be happier. Tires have excellent winter traction and provide a smooth, quiet ride...Got a real test in recent Michigan winter storm. Lots of vehicles in the ditch and the X5 never broke loose on the ice covered roads. Very impressive tire just wish the prices would come down a little. Oh well, I would rather know...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP

Exceptional tires. Great cornering in dry and wet. I'm really impressed in the wet traction. Lots of comfort driving in these tires. Well worth the money. The ride is much smoother than the stock run flats.   Read More

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

Purchased the Pilot A/S 3 91V-rated to replace ContiPro Contact SSR 91H run flats. I carry a spare in the trunk.Conti lasted about 25-30k and were gone. Run flats give you piece of mind but they were noisier than Pilot - I noticed it from the beginning I installed these on. Pilots are also provide a softer ride over small bumps and anomalies on a road; Conti...  Read More

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

These are the P7's which came on the car. I was prepared for harshness based on prior experience with Pirelli and others comments on run flats. Pleasantly surprised. Anxious to see snow traction   Read More

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

I originally had Michelin LS2s that came with my BMW 535xi M-Sport, and after significant research I decided to switch from a run flat tire to an all season sport tire. The Michelin AS/3 came out among the best in all of my research. I am a fairly spirited driver, that likes to stay on the gas in the corners and I very much appreciate an all season tire as I...  Read More

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

Just bought these tires last week and now have 300 miles on them. Wow, why the -------- did I wait so long. Much, much improvement over the run-flats. First, they are quiet and I can finally hear some engine growl... never new it was there over the RFT tire noise. Second, jittery-ness in suspension is now gone. I have the M-sport adaptive suspension and was...  Read More

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

I replaced the OEM Pirelli Run Flat tires with these Michelin Pilots and have been very impressed with the benefits of the change.The Michelins generate less road noise and make the ride more compliant, most noticably over small ruts and bumps in the road surface. They are wearing very well, and I currently have 12,800 miles on them - they look about 30%...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Bought these to replace OEM Continental Run Flat tires. 4500 miles later all is good. Have driven car with these tires on dry, wet, snow covered and icy roads. Of course, in adverse road conditions (ice, snow), due diligence is in order. No complaints on them as of yet, and they much quieter on the interstate than the OEM tires. Yes, I will probably buy them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4 ZP

I've had Conti's(SSR),Bridgestones(RE960 Pole Position), and now these Michelin run flats. Hands down, these are the best run flats I have owned on my BMW's. Cornering with these tires is awesome and the overall ride and comfort on these are great. When running over potholes or while on uneven pavement, these tires dampen the impact relative to other run...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS RFT

Purchased new Q50 AWD Hybrid 3.5, 17 months, 37,500 miles ago. A great/comfortable road car on Run Flat Tires that I have NO complaints about! They have been excellent and quiet! Info says that RFT tires give a firmer ride. But I do not notice it. I am looking for a new set in the future. Still have 5/32 tread after 37,000 miles, Four road trips, totalling...  Read More
