Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

After 2000 miles with this tire it is still a bit early to draw conclusions but so far I feel really happy with it. They are a vast improvement over the stock summer RFT (Goodyear NCT5, which is NOT a performance summer tire in my book). I was fearing a lack of steering feel based on the reviews I saw but I did not notice any lack of it compared to my...  Read More

Kumho's Ecsta V720 is SCCA Eligible

SCCA rules require that tires used in stock classes be available in at least six sizes across four rim diameters by April 30th to be approved for competition. The Kumho Ecsta V720, which had very few sizes available when I wrote "Best Autocross Tires for 2015", made it just in time when Kumho delivered six sizes that span 15" through 18" rim diameters. Kumh...  Read More

Sumitomo's Affordable Performance All-Season Tire Just Got Better

In the late 1990s, Sumitomo and Goodyear formed a joint venture in which the two manufacturers would produce tires for each other.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

These tires were very pricey when I purchased them so I had high expectations. I have an AWD passenger car and live in the Colorado mountains so I needed all weather tires to handle the snow but there are a lot of windy mountain roads.The tires handled well and were very quiet but at 25,000 and two years in, they are shot. I cannot afford to be purchasing...  Read More

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

Our 2008 Saab 93 Aero is the car we vacation travel in. It is a wonderful touring car. I noticed an immediate difference leaving the tire shop driving on the Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3 tires. They felt a little like street legal track tires. The feeling of having the rubber holding the car was evident to me. Clearly, this was not the feel the OEM Continental...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I've had these tires through highway/city, pot holes, heavy rain, and they've performed great so far. They were replacing the OE Dunlop SP SPORT 7000 A/S which lasted almost 70k but were definitely due. By comparison I can say that even vs the Dunlops when new these Contys make less noise and ride much better especially when the roads get rough. What sold me...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

There are already plenty of reviews of this tire, and so, most people will understand that as usual with Michelin, this is another superb offering. My addition is to help with people in getting the most out of this tire.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Long Trail T/A Tour

I am confused on the reviews for this tire. I have no complaints on this tire. I am at 44,500 miles on this set and have had non of the slipping and lack of control people are talking about, and no I do not drive slow. I am a fairly aggressive driver, if the speed limit is 60 I do 60ish in the curve even though the little yellow sign recommends 45. I live in...  Read More
