New Method Roost Wheel is a Great Fit for Jeep Wrangler

In a previous post, "Jeep Wrangler Wheels and Tires", we discussed using 17x9" aftermarket wheels with -12mm offset, which is about 4.5" backspacing on a Jeep Wrangler. That sizing, for many people, is the magic combination to fit 33" or 35" tires on the Jeep JK. I was in that same mindset, but when I saw the new Method Roost wheels we're getting in, I knew...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I got these tires as warranty replacements for noisy Contiprocontacts that where loosing chunks or rubber on the shoulders at 500 miles. The Contipurecontacts offer great grip on dry surfaces and really grab on to the corners, they are firm, but bumps or potholes are absorbed without much jarring or shock. The one quality of these tires that I find...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

I've had three GMC SIERRA's since 2000 and I've had these MICHELIN'S on each one. The set on my present truck has almost 70K and I estimate I could get at least another 20K. I live in San Diego Co. snd therefore don't have to deal with snow. Max psi is 80psi and I run them at 55. Which make them run a little easier giving me better mileage. On the other hand...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I purchased these tires for my little beater that I use running errands and little trips. The reviews all looked good so I wasn't shocked by my experience but was pleasantly happy. The ride is excellent, both highway and around town. In lite snow I am very comfortable driving even though the car is pretty small and lite. I keep this car on the road so I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I drive in New England approx 8,000 miles during the winter. I have these tires on all 4 wheels. My car is a Focus wagon with KYB firm shocks on the rear and will go thru anything. We have 2 Focus wagons. One with summer tires and one with 4 snows. My wife insisted that I put all 4 on one car and leave the summer tires on the other and not drive it on the...  Read More

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

Best tires I ever owned. The grip, the hydroplaning resistance, the low noise level... simply crazy. The very initial turn in responsiveness is not as chirurgical as the OE Dunlop SP 600, but overall they are waaaaaay better. I was truly shocked to realize these S-04 almost removed the understeer from the car behavior. The front grip is like a train on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

First off the treadwear, because I'd give it a 12 if I could. They have been nothing short of astounding for a tire in this class. A full set of super sports was the first purchase I made when I got my car 3 years ago. Since then, I have taken the car to the track for 7 weekends, twice my girlfriend also went out in the car, totaling approximately...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

This tire is awesome, have them on my stage 2 wrx and love them. They are very quiet and comfortable. Dry traction is prime. Wet traction is even better! Never been able to make them slip or skip on pavement and they do pretty decent on other surfaces too especially when absorbing pothole shocks. The only complaint I have is they feel a little sloshy at the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

My rating reflects the set that I just replaced after approximately 52,000 miles. I purchased a replacement set of ExtremeContact DSW's yesterday, and drove 400 miles on the interstate. There's a real difference between riding on a 4/32nd tread depth versus a 10/32nd. The worn tires transmitted more road shock than the new tires, which is understandable....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

We bought my wife a Forester in November of 2010. We had a pretty bad winter that year, and she complained that her car wasn't doing well in the snow. I looked up the Yokohama Geolandres that were the OEM tires, and was shocked to see the bad reviews. Picked up a set of these Pirellis from Tire Rack (based on the great reviews). Well. They just transformed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

This is a great tire for Subaru's. I have high expectations and want to go more performance oriented(studded tires). However, I live in Michigan which does not allow studs so I went with Michelin X-ICE xI3. I always push my car hard whether braking hard on snow/ice and it does a pretty good job but I feel like it needs a little improvement on ice and on...  Read More

Taking Your Mazda Miata to the Next Level

The Mazda Miata has long been a crowd favorite with driving enthusiasts. While it's an amazing vehicle, the level of excitement can be taken to the next level with the right equipment.    Tires are a top priority and the Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Spec and Hankook Ventus RS-3 (Version 2) are both favorites. When we tested each last fall, the ZII Star Spec...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

Very nice OEM on the Subaru Legacy Ltd. Tread wear is almost shocking with 6/32's left after years of carefree driving with regular rotation.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

Recently purchased these tires and could not be any happier. After always running all-season tires, this is my first pair of dedicated winters. The Maine Winters are some of the country's harshest and so far they have performed exceedingly well. My development's roads were covered in a layer of ice and then we got fresh powder – which can be a nightmarish...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek AT20

I don't understand why this tire gets bad reviews. They are standard on my 4Runner, and were on my 2004 4Runner. I was going to switch for the (In my opinion) best SUV tire made, the Goodyear Silent Armour, however after a few miles I decided to wait until a replacement is needed. The recent heavy rain in CA was no problem, I have been to the snow twice, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

2005-2009 Mustang V6 owners, UPGRADE TO THIS TIRE FIRST BEFORE ANY OTHER HANDLING UPGRADES. This is the best performance value replacement tire and most profound handling upgrade for your car when upgrading to the 18-inch X 8.5/9 inch wheel.The lower profile and moderately stiff sidewall eliminates the bouncing and bounding of the stock 16-inch tire, and you...  Read More
