Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Bought these to replace the dreadful Goodyear Assurance's that were on the car when I purchased it. These tires have been great. The traction they have in the rain is unparalleled to any tires I've ever owned. While other's slow down in the rain, I am able to just keep pushing forward, I never feel the least bit unsafe. They really give me a sense of safety....  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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

My Honda EX-L originally came with Michelin Pilots. On my previous car I had General Altimas and was completely satisfied and hoped that the new RT43 would stand up as well. The RT43 seems to be bit harder thus a bit more road noise, but still the best tire all around for safety, handling, traction, comfort, and durability. I can't fault them in any way, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

I purchased this tire in a larger size to help with the stability of the car tracking. The original tires were a lot to handle crossing metal bridge grating which I do quite often. It has been a chore getting the new ones balanced and aligned properly - many trips to the shop. I will update later on how they are holding up.   Read More

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

I have had this tire for 8 months and driven 5000-6000 miles. This tire sticks to the road in the dry and is firm and confident in cornering. It moves water very well in the frequent heavy downpours of our southern thunderstorms. This tire was hard to make hydroplane even in standing water, when rains faster than the roads can drain. The winter traction was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

These are still the factory tires. They were nice when they were new and I have about 35000 on them now and the have dry rotted and one of them has gone out of round. I had them to the shop to get re-balanced and there is nothing they can do about it. there is still about 25-30% tread left on them and I am one to usually milk tires till there is noting left,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Tires slide in the rain a lot when I pushed on the brake. That's my major complaint, other then that they are quiet and last long. Got in a car accident and the tire popped off the bead when it slid into a curb, took it to the tire shop and it aired right up. Strong sideway   Read More

Better Fuel Mileage with Your Tires

With the tire being the only thing contacting the road while you drive, it becomes obvious that the tire plays a roll in your vehicle's fuel economy. This characteristic is referred to as "Tire Rolling Resistance". There are a few nuances to keep in mind when examining tires and fuel economy. It has been proven that as a tire wears, it becomes less resistant...  Read More

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

Incredible tire. I bought my first Ram 1500 back in 2011 - a 4x4 Crew Cab Hemi powered Big Horn. It came with hokey 20 wheels with chromed wheel covers (What the heck?) and Goodyear tires. Horrible combination for gravel. I had two right side blowouts within two months of purchase (strong possibility that the tires had been damaged in the centers while...  Read More

Must I Keep My Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Functional?

When shopping for new wheels and tires for your 2008 model-year or newer vehicle, you will have to address the tire pressure monitoring system. The National Highway Traffic Safety Agency (NHTSA) and a handful of states have made the option of running without sensors a little more limited. This can become complicated and should be addressed directly with a...  Read More

There’s no doubt temperatures around the country are at summer time highs. This time of the year is great for cookouts, hanging by the pool…and pushing your car’s traction and handling levels. And no tire is better suited for that in our Extreme Performance Summer category right now than the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11. Currently ranked the top tire in its...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

I will review again after winter but wanted to submit my initial impressions. Wow! If you have the F250 or F350 diesel you need this tire. It blows the OEM tire out of the water. I changed the OEM to a Cooper AT at less than 20K because it was worthless in the snow and ice. The cooper was somewhat better if I kept enough weight in the bed but it wore out...  Read More

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

Best tire I have ever owned! I am a freak about reading reviews and shopping before I buy. I would have bought the Continentals instead had I not seen a few new reviews right before I purchased. Those pearls of wisdom led me to the right tire for my car. I know this may sound like an infommercial but I swear these have been the quietest, smoothest, best...  Read More

Are My Tires Too Old?

How old is too old is an oft-asked question. While the industry guidelines say six years in use or 10 years from build, your experience can vary. The life span you see from any tire can vary greatly depending on how it is used. For example, counter to common belief, an infrequently used tire actually lives a harder life than one that is exercised on a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

4 years and almost 45k miles on my Speed3 and they'll do anything I ask of them except ice and snow. I don't care about that. Absolutely awesome in the Seattle rain and deep puddles. I've never felt out of control in any hard rain situation. Great 3 season tire. Would buy this series again soon. I still have 1/4 of tread left. They are getting a little noisy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

We live outside of Boston's 95 circle so we get our share of icy, snowy untreated roads. After taking out a fence, mailbox & fender, my sister in law traded the protégé in for an AWD CR-V. Wife liked it so much she got one exactly like it, & I immediately put DM-V1s on the wife's (my) investment. Sister in law waited awhile till she almost kissed the rear of...  Read More
