Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival

Spiritired doesn't begin to cover it. I drive hard. Very hard. I've had this set of Rivals on my S2000 for almost a year now. Its my daily driver, and my weekend warrior. For a tire with no directional rain grooves, these still have the best feeling in the wet. Traction is always there, and gives clear warning before its gone. In the dry they're the best...  Read More

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

The A/S 3s are a huge improvement to the last gen A/S 2. Improvements noted were dry/wet cornering stability, light snow traction, and steering feedback. For an all season tire, it did not disappoint in the last 2 winter storms we have had.3-5 inches of snow on side streets and 2-4 on the hwy with temps in the single digits. The tires made all the difference...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I have a set of these on my 2004 S2000. Best tires I have had on it in 8 years. They replaced a set of Bridgestones, which were on the car for the prior 10,000 miles (3rd set, each lasting approx 10k miles). The Michelin's have been a much nicer tire than the Bridgestones in terms of confidence I have when pushing the cornering limits of the car. They are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

These tires worked great for me from the time I put them on until I replaced them @ 68K miles. They were every bit as good in all areas as the OEM Michelins they replaced. I live in warm climate, so can not vouch for snow or ice conditions, but in both wet & dry conditions, they performed flawlessly. Cornering, braking, ride comfort & noise were all up to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Purchased a set of these for my ap2 s2000. Well michigan had the most snowfall record in history this year, and these tires were incredible. I daily drive my s2000, and travel on completely unplowed backroads, city streets, and lots of highway, and didn't have one single issue all winter. I also live on a very steep driveway that can be tricky to drive up...  Read More

Love is...Autocrossing. And Tire Rack.

A happy couple, fun with cars and Tire Rack. A perfect marriage in our book. Angie and Woody Rogers, both Tire Rack employees, placed their first Tire Rack orders back in 1990 before even knowing each other. Later they met and the rest is (autocross) history. Woody, who began autocrossing in 1989, convinced Angie to come to an event for their first date. It...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Have 215/45/17 Michelin Pilot Super Sports on front of my '05 Honda S2000 and 245/40/17 PSS on the rear with about 3,500 miles on tires since new. Ordinary highway driving yields low noise levels with firm, but not quite punishing, ride in what is a firm riding car.Tires respond immediately to steering inputs and have very tight on-center feel. Wet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec

Car: Honda S2000 Soft ride, nice tires, there are worse and better tires. Driver side and Passenger side tires can be switched unlike unidirectional tires. Kumho XS gives better dry traction. However, these tires are a standard extreme performance tire. Not bad for the price, you get what you pay for.Street driving is comfortable, should be matched with a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I crashed my S2000 in the rain due to bad tires, so I bought these for my repaired S2K because I heard that A) they came on a lot of new super cars, B) Michelin makes tires for space shuttles!, and C) the tires are less expensive than the value I put on my life. I no longer drive extremely fast in the rain, so I can't say for sure here. For warm weather,...  Read More

Hankook's Ventus R-S3 Brings Competition Tire Grip to the Street

Hankook's Ventus R-S3 provides an affordable street tire that best mimics the grip of a racing slick intended for the track. The R-S3 entered a very competitive group of Extreme Performance Summer tires dominated by the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 and the Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec, both of which are considered excellent dual purpose tires for...  Read More

Got same tires on my 04 Honda S2000, great street tire for new SCCA Solo II Road Tire class.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

This is my first experience with a snow tire. I quickly learned that even in dry conditions, the three season tires on my s2000 would not safely carry me through the winter. I did my research and got these Generals. I maintained my staggered setup on the smaller 16 AP1 wheels. 205/60/16 in the front, 225/55/16 in the rear. They don't rub.SNOW: these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

S2000 Potenza RE760 Sport Bliss! First drive on the 760's was like driving a different car. I replaced the rear tires on my S2000 equipped with factory Potenza S-02's that were worn down to slicks. S-02's are great tires, but when they get to this point they become bouncy and noisy. Of course wet grip is gone! With the new 760's the road noise is gone, the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I bought this tire for my Honda S2000 CR as my everyday tire and had intended to just use it as such. It is a good ride that isn't to noisy and not to stiff with great wet grip. It should be noted that last week when my R compound track tires didn't show up in time I was forced to take these street tires out for a lapping day at the track. I was very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 M

It's funny, when a tire is OEM, it usually rates low, but if we are involved and pick out the tires ourselves, the rating seems to go way up. Just looking at the reviews for this tire, people complain how bad the ride is, yet they bought the new car with them on there, how does that work? How does the Hyundai Genesis get such fantastic reviews in he press...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus AS RH07

Tires performed much better in terms of longevity and cornering stability than the OEM Michelin tires. Note that the replacement wheels are larger than OEM (Acura MDX Sport 18 wheels) which might be why cornering performance improved. Also, note that I drive pretty hard - I tend to drive the van similarly to my other car, an S2000.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec

Never drove the tires on wet weather except the very day the tires were completely bald, any bald tire has poor hydroplaning resistance.Tire yields instant grip levels, performance is approximately 90% of the Kumho XS tire (dry grip only) 255 width makes plenty of noise, not because of the tire, rather the seating position of the driver relative to the tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec

Grippy tire, not too expensive, pretty much shot after 20,000 miles on the rear of my S2000 though. Great service from Jim @ Tire Rack. Not many tires available at the size I need and this seems to be the best of the bunch unless you want to for the real expensive brands like Brifgestone or Michelin and I'm not sure they make the size any more   Read More
