Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The Pilots are vast improvement over the factory Potenza run-flats. I made the switch to conventional tires with some trepidation. I have a compressor and plug kit in the trunk, which hopefully will get me home in a pinch. These tires have transformed the car to much more pleasant ride. Traction is phenomenal, directional stability is improved and general...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport AS

These are OEM tyres, they have a 40,000 miles treadware life from the manufacturer. Now after 4 years and 53,000+ miles of driving on them I am looking to replace them. I'm deciding on getting run-flat tyres and longer tread ware from bridgestone. I don't really care about noise,comfort or anything else. If you want things to last, you take care of them....  Read More

Ready or Not Winter 2017 is Coming

Last winter definitely started out slowly, but eventually January came round and winter got serious. Are you living in the snowbelt and wondering how bad the winter of 2017 is going to be? Nobody really knows, but we do know it's coming. Do you need to run winter / snow tires? If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow, you should...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4 ZP

The tires are awesome. Like the fact that I have the run flats. Although was a bit hard to get them balanced they have been broke in and are an excellent tire. No issues. I am not easy on tires as I like to constantly be on the road but they are taking a beating well. The tread still looks almost the same as the day I bought them. And the tires do clean up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D DSST RunOnFlat

Superb winter tire, simply fantastic. I'm using it on fairly powerful RWD car, tons of snow in the area every year. Never skipped or postponed a trip, zero issues finding grip no matter the conditions or the temperature out there. It's pricey, and it wears somewhat fast, for most people it's probably good for 2, maybe 3 winters.Quiter on dry and wet pavement...  Read More

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

Just had these for about a month and can feel the difference from the oem bridgestone desert duelers. These feel more like passenger car tires. Very smooth and much quieter. Traction seem to be better. I'm very satisfied with them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

My experience is autoX and road/track events (HPDE, HSAX, etc), as well as extremely spirited around town driving. My S2000 is modified for SCCA's STR class, and has basic bolt-ons, coilovers, front sway bar. Running -2.2* camber.These tires are the fastest, grippiest street tire on the market (Q3-2016). Only way to get more grip or performance is to go to...  Read More

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

It was a big jump getting away from the Conti Run Flats, but the best move I ever made, it's like a totally different car, just amazing. The car now rides and handles as I assume BMW originally intended. My only issue is not having a spare, although I do carry a plug kit, compressor and AAA card, so I am covered. Best move I ever made moving to these...  Read More

Best All-Season Tires for Late-Model BMW 3 Series

Model year 2012 saw BMW introduce the F30 3 Series. The major change was this was the first time the entire lineup used turbo charged engines. While the array of configurations is expansive, including four door, station wagon, hatchbacks, as well as numerous trim level options (this blog focuses on the standard four-door sedan). This car sports 225/50R17...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Run Flat

Disliking the Continental no-flat all weather tires that came with my Mini I needed a change. These were in special at the time and since I live in Southern California where we receive moderate rain for a couple months I saw no reason for all seasons. I do not baby my car, love mountain drives, and having taken some racing training put tires to their paces....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Making the switch from RFT to conventional tires save me money and I personally didn't like the ride or noise quality of the run flats. I've only had these on for less than 1k miles, but so far, it met my expectations. Steering response is great, superb traction in both dry and wet conditions. The ride is a lot softer and quieter. These tires absorb road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I recently bought a 2013 Corvette Grand Sport Coupe. It only had 8400 miles on it and it also had the original GY run flats. The handling, ride, and road noise were horrible. Today I had a set of Continentals from Tire Rack installed and it is a different car. Tracks straight (ie: no tramlining), smooooth ride, and negligible road noise. It is, in fact,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

This is the 4th set of Duelers I have had. All have been great tires for the money...quiet, easy riding yet reasonably responsive and great wet traction. This set replaced Continental run-flats that were good tires but much harsher in every regard than the Duelers. The improvement in ride quality and noise level of the Duelers made the cost of an emergency...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I had to replace the factor installed Continental ContiProContact SSR earlier than planned due to the excessive noise and rough ride due to the uneven tread ware. I didn't want to drive my car because of the way it drove and definitely didn't want anyone else to ride in it. After reading the reviews on the factory installed tires and saw that most people...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I replaced the original run flats with these Extreme Contact tires and got 57000 miles on them driving on freeways, tarred and gravel roads in all four seasons including snow and ice in MN. Very satisfied. Rotated them regularly. Great tire   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Tires have been on for 12 months, installed July 2015. I have 18 staggered set up on my 2014 BMW F31 (wagon). Tires have been great. I live in central Fl. so these have been tested through lots of rain and standing water on roadways and I-95. No issues at all. Much better than OEM run-flats.The DWS06 were also installed on my wife's Audi Q5 3.0T, with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP

Bought these tires for my Cayman S since it has no spare and I frequently drive far from tire stores (middle of Wyoming). They replaced the stock 19 inch 35 series stock tires, and ride no harsher than the original tires (replaced with 18 inch 40 series run flats). They are not loud, but are noticeable on rougher pavement. On I 25 north of Denver, which is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

These tires are great in rain. Excellent ride quality as well. If you're looking for a run flat, these are a great choice. Can't really give a meaningful review on snow/ice performance, but for wet and dry conditions, these are truly great tires.   Read More

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

I'm not often compelled to write positive reviews, I tend towards writing negative reviews to assist others from making the same mistakes I have. In this case, this tire is not a mistake. I am coming from OEM Goodyear LS2 ROF (Run on Flat) tires in 245/45 19 size to the AS/3 + in the same size and the difference is nothing short of transformative.Most...  Read More
