Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

I have only had these on my RAV4 for a few weeks, but I have tested them big time on some snowy roads in Colorado. I noticed right away how much smoother and quiter they we were than my own factory tires. I have an all whelel car but noticed slipping a lot with the original own tires. This happens no more with these tires. I have taken them through some snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS

I purchased these not reading the reviews and was pleased as a spring/summer/fall tire. They are useless as a winter tire but then again I always switch over to Blizzaks in Winter.I tried these during our first light snow fall on our 540 and they are useless but then again I figured as much. I switched immediately over to my already mounted Blizzaks and what...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

I just finished my first winter on these tires. /they performed better than I expected. I ever had any problem on unplowed roads or highway. During a severe black ice night I slipped and slided but made it home when every other vehicle on the road either crashed or was hopelessly stuck. The only time I had ant difficulty was when I went to drive around an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2

I bought these tires about six years ago when I was still skiing. They performed well and have held up better than the stock Geolanders, which wore out at about 20,000 miles. This spring I decided to run them through the summer to get the last miles out for them. They perform nicely in warm weather, unlike many snows that get squirelly when the temps rise. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

Installed on new Allroad with only 267 miles on odo. Car driven smoothly and mostly at higher speeds on rural secondaries and highway. Used throughout winter to include road trip to Canada. Traction with Quattro was amazing. The car handled well and felt glued to the road, especially in wet and light snow conditions. Did not get a chance to drive in heavy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D

The M4 and my previous sets of M3's on two Subies are the best tire I've owned, period. One set was wearing down a bit more than I like in late spring, so I decided to take them into summer, couldn't wear them out. Great confidence on dry roads, off road mud, etc. I've been on glare ice where the ABS pumped a whole lot more than I would have liked trying to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2

These are great tires, great traction, great cornering and responsiveness whether on the road or the track. They make the rather stiff ride of a BMW M Roadster more comfortable, are very quiet on the highway and happily cruise along at 100+ mph with excellent road feel. I occasionally take my car to the big track at Willow Springs or the Mazda Raceway (aka...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z II

Have had these sitting in the garage after taking them off a couple years ago when my daughter took the car off to college. Just put them back on for the spring, replacing worn out Kumho Ecsta 4X All Seasons. On the way home from getting them mounted it was like getting to know an old friend again. Better responsiveness, launch at stop lights, and general...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

I bought a set for my 2012 Malibu along with H&R lowering springs and KYB shocks. I love these tires with my suspension set up. I drive my car hard and the S-Drives keep my big car planted when I'm cornering hard (100+kms) Great wet and dry traction. Will definitely be hitting tire rack up again for another set!   Read More

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

When I drove my brand new 2011 Outback home from the dealers lot in Chicago to east Central Indiana, I wondered if I had made the worst purchase decision of my life. I had bought the car with plenty of research, and in town test driving, but I had never had it on the interstate, on top of that day 1 was windy. To say I was directionally challenged would be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination M/T

I have had the FS Destination MT on my Jeep for 5 years at approx 30-40K miles. I have nothing but good things to say about these tires. Being in the military I travel every three years. I purchased in Northern Michigan, near the UP. Lots of off roading and winter driving. With a fully packed Jeep, I drove from Northern Michigan to Alaska. Ran the ALCAN....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11A

I bought these tires as they came recommended as the most aggressive non-R compound performance tire. 205/55/16 up front and 225/50/16 in the rear. Newly installed, they immediately transformed the handling of my car from the old Fuzions that the previous owner had on it. I couldn't believe the responsiveness of the steering and the new levels of grip that I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

The best summer tires I ever had. My Mazda come from the factory with Dunlop Sport which I could not wait to replace. Bridgestone tires makes Mazda even more fun to drive. I drive about 12000 miles every summer in Michigan and the tires will last for one season, then in the winter I'm using Bridgestone blizzak, by the way those are other awesome tires. Never...  Read More

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

These are excellent performance summer tires with emergency all season ability. I would not buy them and plan to drive in snow.I purchased these tires as dedicated summer tires, as I typically run X-Ice on winter wheels. I put them on bright and early in the spring, since they are advertised as all season tires. My initial impressions were great. Dry / wet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

I really like these tires. Living in Germany I get to test out the Y speed rating, but my little Audi will only go 142mph. Not enough engine to go any faster. At those speeds it handles very nicely and predictable. Wet traction is very good on the curves and hills on my way to work. I only drove in the snow once with these, not a good time, but they were not...  Read More

Preview: BFGoodrich g-Force Rival S

This spring, BFGoodrich is introducing the new g-Force Rival S. Building on the successful design of the original g-Force Rival, BFGoodrich is expanding the line to include the S version. The primary difference is a softer compound that will come up to operating temperature faster and yield higher maximum grip. This is ideal for autocross competitors, time...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11A

After wearing out my second set of Falken Azenis RT615 on my MR2 I tried this example from the latest batch of uber-tires and I have been blown away. My MR2 SC has Ground Control coilovers with custom spring rates and the ride was tolerable but harsh on fairly smooth california roads. The RE11A trumps the grip of the Azenis by a substantial margin, and at...  Read More
