Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These tires replaced the stock Potenza S001 Run-flats that came with my 2015 335i from the factory. To be honest, the performance difference between these tires and the stock run-flats is nominal. I was a little disappointed because I expected a huge change from all the reviews I read. Don't get me wrong, the Michelin tires are better, but only just. Maybe I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I like these tires do much I purchased another set for our second car that did not originally come with run flats.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I changed out the factory run flats on our X6 almost immediately as it came with high performance summer tires (I will never understand that for cars going to snow prone areas). I didn't want to sacrifice performance for winter capability and I didn't want two sets of tires (though I understand the argument). I only had one other experience with Conti's and...  Read More

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

These OEM tires on my 2013 MINI Cooper S Paceman have the same grip now that they're close to 38K miles as they did when new and they remain as quite and comfortable, too. I've maintained the PSI at 36 on all tires throughout the last two and a half years. Tires are down to 3mm with a bit of life in them still. Now it is time to shop for new tires and I'm...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These tires were rated no:1 when I was looking for new tires for the X3 and since I already had them on a 03' 330i ZHP, I decided to get them. Having all wheel drive and some considerable clearance on the X3, theses tires perform better than expected. It was like driving on regular road when driving in 4-5in. of snow. They are quiet, has an incredible ride...  Read More

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

At 16.500 miles it was time to replace the run-flat Dunlap tires. I really liked these tires except they didn't last long. I have switched to regular tires and bought an air pump, green slime and tire repair kit. I have not had a flat in 50 years and hope my luck continues. The only problem with these tires is the noise. They are very loud with the top down....  Read More

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

I ditched the run flats and went with the Comp-2 A/S and a plug kit since the F30 doesn't have a spare. Couldn't be happier with the performance of these tires. Can't speak on tread life or snow performance, but the tires are great in dry/wet. Tons of grip and confidence in any road situation. The tires do hum a little on various surfaces, but it's a minor...  Read More

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
