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

These tires replace the prior generation Michelin A/S 3's that I had on the car. One of the great features is the 45K mile warranty -- which I used to get into these tires. After 21K miles, the prior set was down to 3/32 in front and 4/32 in rear. They had gotten noisy, harsh, and obviously past their expected traction sweet-spot. So these new A/S 3+'s are a...  Read More

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

When I bought my Volvo used, it had been sitting on the lot since December and had a new set of Bridgestone Blizzaks on. Because I bought the car at the beginning of this summer though, I purchased a new tire/wheel package from Tire Rack and set the winter tires/wheels aside for later use. I chose these g-Force COMP-2 A/S tires based on the Tire Rack ratings...  Read More

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

So far I am extremely happy with the Continental Cross Contact LX20 tires. I was between these and the Bridgestone Dueler 422 Ecopia. Decided to go with the Continentals because they were rated a bit higher for snow and we are in Wisconsin. Just went over 28,000 miles and we have 10/32 on the front tires and 9/32 on the rear tires. Traction has been very...  Read More

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

Great tire life. These tires have another 10 K in them, at least. Quiet smooth comfortable ride. Very stable on dry and wet/snow road. Recommended.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

Just put these on, other than some impact harshness (45 series) they're ---- impressive for the money, quiet and smooth. They balanced perfectly which is more than I can say for the OE Firestone Firehawk GT. I wanted the Eagle Sports but read reviews about balance/ride disturbance issues (typical Goodyear). Steering response off center is a but slow, but I'm...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (T-Speed Rated)

My car is a hybrid, I drive nearly 4,000 miles every month for my business, and I care most about durability and reliability. I have gone through two sets of these tires, and, unbelievably, each set has lasted nearly 90,000 miles. Granted, my car is lighter than most, and I drive conservatively most of the time, because in order for me to earn a living I...  Read More

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

I got these tires because of the tire rack test review. They had the best ratings and for the best price. I am a very spirited driver and i tend to drive like im on a race track. These tires held up to everything i put them through; mud, sand, gravel, dirt roads, going over the occasional curb to skip traffic and the occasional race here and there. These are...  Read More

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

This set of tires replaced #4 Hankook Ventus Noble S2 A/S High Performance tires which wore bad and wore out around 20k miles of easy to moderate driving. The BFGoodrich tires have better cornering & dry grip. Better braking and acceleration then the Hankooks. The BFs also performan better in not Hydroplaning and does great in cornering & wet conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

This is a follow up review from my original I wrote after only 500 miles. Now with 6500 miles and having driven in snow, on ice, in rain, on nasty city streets (I live in Chicago), on Interstate, State, and county highways I can say that purchasing these tires was the best decision I have made. I live in Chicago but cover a sales territory from Detroit, MI...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I had these tires installed at the South Bend Distribution Center in March of 2016. First off, I can not recommend having Tire Rack install your tires enough. Fantastic experience!South Bend's location is such that you are just south of Michigan in Indiana and only about 50 minutes from Lake Michigan to east. I tell you this because when I drove from central...  Read More

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

This tire is great. It handles better, is smoother riding and way quieter than the factory tires that came on the 2013 Crosstrek. They are great in the rain and you can drive along at full highway speeds without a hint of looseness. With the factory tires you sometimes had to slow down in heavy rain on the highway because the car would get loose and 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

Best All-Season Audi S4 Tires

The Audi S4 is the high-performance model of the A4 sedan. First seen in 1991 (originally based on the 100), the S4 has matured over the years into a world-class luxury, performance car. The most current model made its debut in 2009 with a face lift as recently as 2012. The Premium Plus trim level sports a tire size of 245/40R18, however you should always...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

We didn't realize the car had 18 wheels at purchase. Not a problem, except we usually run Michelin's, which are pretty expensive in this size. So we checked Tire Rack ratings and found these tires...and we have been pleasantly surprised. The tires 'sing' at highway speed which is a little noticeable, but really not an issue at all. They are a lot quieter...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

These tires were much better than the OEM Kumhos (Solus I believe) on my 2011 Kia Sorento SX. I actually had some confidence driving in light/deep snow with the Michelins. They weren't as quiet (or comfortable) as I thought they would be, but they were still miles better than those Kumhos.I've got almost 45,000 miles on them with just a couple flats...  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

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

After Driving with these for 2 years I love this tire they are the smoothest most responsive all-seasons I've ever owned. My favorite part about them is the way they take the highway, when I switch from my winter set, it does not feel like the same vehicle. Let me say however, they need to get removed when the snow falls. Living in Massachusetts, these tires...  Read More

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

Replaced the Dunlop tires that came on the car. I was quiet surprised by both the comfort and performance of these Pilot A/S 3+ tires. I haven't put many miles on them yet but expect to enjoy these tires for many miles to come. I recommend these tires for anyone looking for performance tires with some snow traction.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G95A

The Geolander H/T G95A has performed much better than I'd expected from a set of OE tires. I live in the DC Metro area and since I've owned the Forester dealt with a few major (for this region) and a number of moderate snow events, as well as significant rainy spells. When I was faced with Snowmageddon in Feb. 2010, I found that once I cleared a bit of space...  Read More
