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

I live in Jackson Hole, WY and needed a tire that could handle the deep snow we get and steep hills that are never cleared while being somewhat quiet on the asphalt once the snow is cleared. I was nervous about keeping my 315 rears as i've been told it creates too much of a snow buildup to move through - I even considered getting a set of 265 rims for all...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

My BMW had run flats on it and I hated the ride. These tires are a breath of fresh air!!! Smooth, reactive and very responsive. Great on the highway and so far so good! I admit I just got them but WHAT A DIFFERENCE. Low road noise and better ride almost immediately. For the price run, don't walk and buy these great tires. Nice $60. rebate through august 31st...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Run Flat

I bought these Pirelli Scorpion Run-Flat tires to replace the original equipment Bridgestone Duelers on my 2009 BMW X5. Early on, I'm extremely satisfied.I never liked the way the Bridgestones held the road and took turns. The Pirelli Scorpions, on the other hand, hold the road like velcro with a slightly softer ride. During a downpour, they performed...  Read More

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

Researched tires for my Infiniti G37 and was going to purchase Bridgestone Drive Guard, which is a touring run flat tire with high mileage rating. After further research I found out about the B F Goodrich g-Force Comp-2 A/S. Liked what I read, especially the quicker stopping distance on wet and dry surfaces. Waited seven weeks until tire released in my tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS RFT

I got a infinity Q 50 2015. I got it a year ago it came with the Bridgestone potenza 225/55 R17. Run Flat tires. I have had no problems with them until now. My back passenger tire just popped and my dash info told me the tire was flat but because they are run flat I was able to dive 40 miles at around 50 mph with no problem just like it would feel if your...  Read More

Switching to Non-Run-Flat Tires? Don't Have A Spare? Consider the Continental ContiComfortKit

Due to cost saving and weight saving measures taken by many auto manufacturers, an increasing number of cars today are sold without a compact or full size spare. Rather than be reliant on roadside assistance, many customers call in looking for ways to remedy the problem. While full size spare wheel and tire assemblies can be sold, they likely will not fit in...  Read More

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

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 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 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
