Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I purchased a set of these tires in hopes of a cross over tire that could handle daily driving and track use. In short: amazing tires! These are some of the most precise and predictable tires I have used, which makes them perfect for spirited driving on curvy canyon roads and occasional ventures to the track. I live in southern California and don't get much...  Read More

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

I held off on reviewing this tire until I had a few miles on this set. I now have almost 20,000 miles on them and they look like new. I had Michelins on my Mazda 6 prior to replacing them with the Generals. I have replaced Michelins in the past because I found them to be terrible in the rain and snow as well as noisy when cornering. The Altimax tires corner...  Read More

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

I put a set of these on 58,000 miles ago. They have been the best tires I have used ever in a car. I am ordering new ones now as they did not all wear at the same rate. That could also be my car and not the tires fault as I drive 112 miles for work every day and then my normal stuff on top. I have had them on for 2 winter seasons and they have done very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler HP

I purchased my Ram with 7000 miles on it. I just replaced them at 48,000. They still had a little life in them but wanted to buy new tires while I could afford to. They would have lasted longer had I rotated them more. I did not purchase a new set of these, despite my high rating. It's hard to justify spending money on something that overall doesn't get a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I know this is a early review however I have to say something about these tires. I replaced a set of FLAT NOISEY Goodyear Regatta's with these. It is like Night and Day. German Design. 800 Wear. A Traction B Temputure T rated 118MPH . These handle better in dry and wet driving. The Video review is right on about these tires. You Tube Videos show you why this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Best tire on my truck yet. Value is outstanding. Worst weather of year in snow I had traction driving around everyone. Ice is ice you have to crawl to be safe. I was parked camping in 6-7 inches of snow on a grade and never moved truck until after the storm and drove out of parked off road on dirt & grass underneath area; awesome. Excellent tread left. Best...  Read More

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

Very good tire traction choice in all weather. We have steep grades with hard cornering up and down Ozark Hills in rain excellent, snow good at slower speeds and if you crawl on ice they will generally track. Rubber is softer so great traction vs. just not the longest lasting tire but worth it for safety and best value. Price is good so we run em and replace...  Read More

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

Truck has 230,000 miles, I have tried some tires. Rudy in TR customer service told me about the new tread design and I was willing to try it( thanks Rudy!!). These tires far surpass the older BFGoodrich design! They earned their mountain snow rating! We just had every kind of weather from dry to rain to warm to cold and icy and these bite! My confidence is...  Read More

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

Not a bad tire thus far.This winter north of Boston, Ma has been horrible and these tires do not do well in snow over a few inches. Not a bad all around tire. I am anxious to see how long they last.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

These tires are a wonderful improvement over the Goodyear Assurance original equipment, which we replaced after 30,000 miles due to thinning tread and increasing noise. Night and day difference; much improved ride quality, much lower (almost silent) road noise, and significantly improved turn in response with crisp handling on both dry and wet pavement.The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Ditch the OEM run-flat tires! The Pirelli Scorpion Verde Plus tires are much smoother, ride quieter and provide a greater sense of road feel and manners than the OEM Bridestone run-flats, which were a rougher ride and wore out after less than 26,000 miles. Why BMW equips their cars w run-flats is a mystery to me since the run-flats ride is rougher, tires...  Read More

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

I had old A/S tires and they went bad only after 26,000 miles. Also noise was quite bad. New A/S 3 are much better as far as lateral road holding and cornering. Braking is also much improved. Cornering is phenomenal and fully compatible to Super Sports that I have on my MBW M3. Road noise is okay, but still quite high. Road feel is good and predictable. Yet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

This tire was recommended by the Tire Rack and Michelin sites for this vehicle, a 1999 MB CL500 coupe with 110,000 miles in exceptional condition, incl suspension. Tires are 100 H series (135mph max).I have owned many brands (eight by count) and buy Michelin's, due to the consistent performance, durability and quality. Car has the M119 high performance...  Read More

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

So far great tire. I replaced a set of Pilot Sport A/S plus with these. Big difference especially in the rain. Will update if any snow falls this year. Road noise is about the same as the a/s plus, but potholes are felt a heck of a lot more now.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

What a significant improvement over ANY all season tires on ice, light and heavy snow!My 3 month old Dunlop SP sport 5000 tires were rated with the best snow and ice traction among all other all season tires in the latest consumers report survey, but the car can't even stop without sliding out of control when I reach intersections on slight icy conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Commercial T/A Traction

I purchased a set of these for my truck back when I was still working as a contractor and needed tires that could handle snow & mud. Then, I got injured and retired, and got involved with the county fire & rescue volunteers. Now my truck is fitted out as a mobile radio command post and on call 24/7, so dependable tires are even more critical. And these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I put these tires on a C6 Corvette and could not be happier. They have the appropriate speed rating for a 'vette and perform beyond my expectations. The OEM run flats sounded like snow tires. Was difficult to hear the radio at freeway speeds. To compensate for the tire not being a run flat, I bought a tire pump from Groits Garage and a plug kit for...  Read More

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

Early review at 2000 miles. Replaced OEM Summer Tread Dunlop A01 with this Michelin all season tread. The Michelin is very quiet and smooth riding. It handles just as well as the summer Dunlops. Haven't used them in light snow yet. Will see how they hold up in regards to tread wear and noise after they get miles on them - this is where the Dunlops...  Read More

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

Had summer performance Goodyears on my Focus ST - purchased car in February, 2013. Hardly any snow last winter, but when the temp was under 35 degrees, they would SLIDE. Put these on in ealr November, and what a difference. In cold weather these things STICK, and in light snow they are really amazing. A little road noise, but not a whole lot worse than the...  Read More
