Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

With only 1500 miles on these tires, I couldn't be happier. The smoothness of the ride is noticeably improved over the OEM Bridgestone's. Handling is great, too. I'll report back next spring on winter driving!!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

These tire are a great option to winter tires. It's all season capilitbilty is above adequate. Hydro plane resistance is decent however don't expect superior dry condition responsiveness. That's not what these tires are design for. If you own a cruising luxury vehicle and are in need of a quiet smooth ride with dependability during rain and snow then I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Any RDX owners out there know that this is a noisy CUV/whatever-they-call-it. When I bought the car last October it had mismatched off-brand tires and anything but the smoothest road felt like a washboard. Although I normally take a more performance-oriented approach to researching tires, I figured this time around I'd look for something that smooths out the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

I put a set of these on my '85 Mazda RX7 with a 12a Rotary engine making about 100hp. A 205/50R16 is a big upgrade from the OEM 185/65R13 they mounted on this car in the '80s. Around the same time I also upgraded to Racing Beat springs and larger front and rear sway bars. I'm using the car to commute and attend track nights and it is a blast. Road noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

UPDATE to April 2010 rating from Colorado Springs, CO. These tires have been great. Now that I have some miles on them have noticed the following observations. Increased mileage and quiter ride over the Yokohamas. Looking forward to see how they wear and live up to their 80K treadware warranty. I would purchase them again and will put them on my other...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Put these on my VW Touareg because the Goodyear LS that were OEM skated all over the place on water and ice/snow. Blizzaks have been excellent. I drive in a city where streets are plowed instantly so no big deal, but also a lot of driving into Indiana and Michigan along the snow and ice along the western lake shore and its scary treacherous at times. Drive...  Read More

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

Excellent tire in both wet and dry conditions. Shortly after installing them, I drove the Blue Ridge parkway in a weekend-long fall rain (which meant there was no one on the parkway but me) and was very pleased with wet grip - was able to maintain 50-55 mph through all of the curves, in the rain and with wet leaves in many spots. Made sure steering inputs...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These tires 100% live up to their reputation. They perform beyond well for a spirited street car. Road holding and feedback is fantastic, the ONLY drop from the horrible RTF's is a slight drop in steering response but that's as to be expected. The improvement in ride quality even for these ultra thin sidewall tires from the RFT's is staggering. It was beyond...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I have had these tires for (3)-winters now. I noticed a significant difference as soon as they were put on. The grip and traction they apply in the snow is great. My truck no longer slides or slips in the snow, even in 2WD. Turning is sharp, acceleration is just like on dry pavement.I have driven this down roads with more than 4-in of snow with complete...  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 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 Defender LTX M/S

Only had them on the truck a short while but within 3-4 days of having them installed, had to drive in a nasty late spring snow. They performed sooooo much better even in 2WD then the previous tires, particularly since it doesn't have a locking differential that it seemed to be a totally different truck. They did seem a little harsher riding but that seems...  Read More

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

My 2015 Boxster S came with 20 inch Pirrelli P Zero Max Performance Summer Tires. They provide satisfactory performance when its sunny and hot. When the temps start to drop in the spring and fall they become a poor tire, with increase in road noise and ride discomfort. So after some research I bought a set of Oz Racing Leggera HLT rims with the BF Goodrich...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I currently run two sets of tires on my Mustang her in New England, 3 seasons of my Original Stock Pirelli P-Nero Zero High Performance Summer Tires and 3 winters of Driving with my Blizzak Performance Winter Snow Tires. It was time to replace the stock summer tires that had worn down to almost nothing with only 35k Miles.First of all the thing I noticed...  Read More

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

I took off my winter tires and put these back on in April. They handle great and give a very smooth quite ride. They are fun on the off ramps and the cornering and steering response are great. They also do very good in the rain , we have had a very wet spring.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I use these only during spring through fall, and put on four Blizzaks for the winter. With only 6500 miles so far I'm not sure I can accurately address the durability/tread life of the tires, but generally speaking I'm pleased with them. They seem to have plenty of grip in both wet and dry conditions though I tend to spin one wheel very slightly (I don't...  Read More
