Making the New 2015 Ice Silver Metallic Subaru BRZ Premium Better

I liked my 2013 Honda Civic Si because it was a fun, quick and capable car with a moonroof. While the Civic Si was nice, it simply did not stir my soul the way my old BRZ did. So I said goodbye to my Civic Si and picked up a 2015 ice silver metallic Subaru BRZ Premium. The changes Subaru made to the BRZ in 2015 are outstanding. A shark fin antenna gives the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I never knew my Subaru had wind noise before installing this tire. The lack of road/tire noise from the Turanza Serenity Plus is astonishing. So far, wet, dry and snow traction feel very similar to the Bridgestone Potenzas that I took off after 59,000 trouble-free miles. The steering feels a little meatier with the Turanzas(which is no bad thing). We've only...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I live in mile hi steep mountain terrain. We had a heavy 18 snowfall with only minimal snow plowing done before I had to drive 'down the hill'. Decided this would be a great test to see how my new Altimax Arctic snow tires would preform so launched out without putting tire cables on, which I was sure I would need. Trees & power lines down everywhere making...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Only after 1600 miles, I noticed how much quieter these tires were compared to the OEM Pirellis. We just had a light snowfall and these tires performed exactly as I had anticipated. I tried to spin all four tires in the snow, but couldn't. One thing I have not liked about continentals are their softer sidewalls. I am thinking these tires seem to flex more...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

After moving into a new house that has a very steep, paved driveway, I wanted to get snow tires for my BMW and my wife's Subaru (both AWD). I chose the Blizzak's for theSubaru and the Dunlop Wintersports for the BMW. This review is for the Blizzaks so I will speak mostly to these. Bottom line, these tires are awesome. I purchased mainly for snow and ice...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

I drive a heavily modified 342whp/331wtq 03' Subaru Impreza WRX swapped to an Sti and I have a set of these in 235/40/18s mounted to Sparco Assetto Gara wheels. This is my daily driver and also my have a blast on the back roads car. They handle very well and have decent wet traction, but what I love about these tires so far has been how long they last. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/T D687

I had to write this review because of all the negative reviews out there. These tires came with my Subaru Forester when I bought the car new in 2010. I have 89000 miles on them and there is still tread left. I have no complaints. I do check air pressure every month or two. I have gotten my tires rotated probably like every 15,000 miles. I have had one wheel...  Read More

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

These tires are working great on my Subaru Tribeca 2010. When they were installed two years ago it felt like I've got a new car or at least seriously upgraded the one I had. I'm living in NJ suburban area near New York City. Fuel economy went up from average 17.1 mpg to 18.5 mpg, tires are difinitely quiter, have better traction in wet conditions, snow and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival

Used for 10 months on a daily driver (Subaru STI) to included 34 autocross runs and nearly 14,000 street miles. Extremely happy with the stick and mileage. Very happy with its ability to rotate on all corners which extend its wear. Autocross: car typically finishes within top 10% overall and then driven 300+ miles a week. Excellent dual purpose tire....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred

I'm fanatical about maintaining grip. This is my 4th set of Assurance Comfort Treads. Live in Michigan and use them year round. I buy primarily for snow/ice traction and long wear. Bought these immediately after buying the car as the tires that came from the dealer were extremely poorly rated here at Tire Rack. Currently also have them on a Subaru Outback...  Read More

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

Pilot Sport AS3 in 215/45-17 (V rated) on a mostly stock 2005 Subaru Legacy GT. I'm pretty happy with these after 25,000 miles of mostly highway driving. Dry traction and steering response are much better than I expected from a 500 treadwear all-season tire, and I've been seriously impressed with their capability in the rain, nary a hiccup in heavy downpours...  Read More

Go Play in the Dirt with Method Rally Series Wheels

When I attended the DirtFish rally school, I noticed that the wheels on the school's Subaru WRXs were from Method Racing. We carried Method at that time, but did not have those wheels available. Now, less than a year later, here they are. The Rally Series wheels were developed by Method in partnership with Subaru's rally team, combining wheel industry...  Read More

New Lightweight Track Wheel from MOTEGI RACING

Anyone who has spent a Saturday at an autocross event or a road course knows that lighter is better. Lighter is especially better when referring to unsprung weight. Unsprung weight is anything not supported by the suspension of your vehicle such as wheels, tires and brakes. As one of the best bang-for-your-buck upgrades, a set of dedicated lightweight...  Read More

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

Only have about 1200 miles on these tires but am very pleased soo far. I lived in Wyoming and it is winter here so most of the miles are on snow packed or ice covered highways or on graveled ranch roads with up to 5 inches of snow. I have made a couple of 300 mile road trips and am very impressed with the smooth ride and lack of road noise. I am compareing...  Read More

I have 4 of these dedicated snow tires on my '08 Subaru Tribeca whenmost of my contemporaries run All Season tires.

My driveway also has a northern exposure so it does not melt as quickly as someof my neighbors driveways do. i have great confidence in the...  Read More
