At Tire Rack, our advice involves the entirety of the automotive experience. Sales specialists receive continuing product education and participate in test driving experiences.
Recently I had the opportunity to drive and compare the Firestone Precision Sport, Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S, Yokohama AVID ENVigor, and Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 tires side-by-side.
I found the the Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 and Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S to be the most comfortable and noise reduced, while the Firestone Precision Sport and Yokohama AVID ENVigor to have excellent handling and steering.
This experience means that when you call us for advice on tires and before we recommend tires to you we are also saying "Yes!" to road-testing these tires and sharing our experiences with you.
The full report of these tire comparisons will be available online soon!
