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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

By virtue of my car being an AWD slightly-high hatchback, it's tough to critique certain things like the tires' contribution to steering response. Nonetheless, I'm quite happy with these tires. I only needed to replace my rears, but for the cost of just those two tires in the OEM Pirelli run-flat model, I was able to afford a full staggered set of the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (H- or V-Speed Rated)

So I replaced my Hankook 16 inch Run Flats that came standard on the car when I bought it in 2014 with these Goodyear All Seasons. What a huge difference these All Seasons are compared to the Run Flats. I will never buy another set of Run Flats again (I guess, other than if they come standard on a new Mini and I have no other option). The Run Flats have a...  Read More

Is Tire Shaving the Right Solution?

You drive an all-wheel or four-wheel drive vehicle and a tire goes flat and needs to be replaced. Should you replace the entire set or just the one in need of repair? You may or may not know that your vehicle's transmission and/or differential requires all tires to be the same, or close to the same tread depth in order to operate properly. Running tires with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat

These were the OEM tires on my wife's 2015 BMW X3 2.8d. Not very happy with them. They are average at best. They are ok in the dry and rain. Terrible in anything with snow or ice. I would not buy another set.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I wanted to get rid of the run flats that were on my BMW. I researched and came to 3 main tire options for what I needed and wanted. Michelin pilot SS, Bridgestone PP S04, continental dws super. I read how great the Bridgestone ranked and going head to head against the top dog in this category being the Michelin pilot super sport, these tires deserve mention...  Read More

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

The Pirelli's replaced the OE Bridgestones. The differences are enormous. The Pirelli's are an all around better tire. In both wet and dry conditions they significantly outperform the Bridgestones. Since we live in the Colorado mountains a great deal of time is spent in snow and ice. While these tires do not match a set of good snow tires, they perform much...  Read More

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
