Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

These came mounted as OEM for my new 2015 Odyssey, and although they are very quiet, responsive, great in the rain and handle well, they wore out very fast. I rotated them every 5,000 miles so the wear was even throughout but after 18 months of ownership and 24,000 miles on them they were worn down to the wear bars. I also use a set of winter tires/wheels...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Purchased these tires a few days ago and had them installed by Tire Rack themselves at their South Bend location. These tires replaced a set of Michelin Defenders with 4/32nds tread left, and my review will be comparing these two. Compared to the Defender, grip and braking is vastly improved. These tires (the Premier A/S) just don't lose grip, regardless of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is my second set of Continental Tires and this set is better than the OEM Continental Tires. In between I had a set of Michelin Primacy tires which I replaced unnecessarily as it turned out for another reason. I consider these to be nearly equal to the Primacys with the Primacy's having the edge in ride and tracking, almost like riding on rails.But here...  Read More

Tires and Wheels for 2017 FIAT 124 Spyder

With Italian styling and reliability, FIAT has created the perfect summer roadster. Want to add a little more Italian styling to the vehicle? Well, that's easy. Just add a set of wheels from O.Z....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is my second set of these tires in seven years. They are awesome. I still had plenty of tread life left in the front but the back tires were worn down so I opted for a complete set. You cannot get a better set of tires. I do drive aggressively at times and these tires hold true. They grip the road like summer tires in warm weather and maintain traction...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Original tires were BFG Trail TA which were absolute junk. I replaced them with Bridgestone AT Revo's which are an amazing tire for this truck. I could go through snow and ice without having to use four-wheel-drive whereas the BFG's I had to use for four wheel drive in the same conditions. The only drawback with the AT Revo's is I could barely get 30,000...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Cargo G26

The first set of tires were factory installed on this Sprinter 15 wheels and lasted a little over 100K with no additional balancing or rotation. I finally fixed the front right camber problem and now my mileage and steering is very nice. I expect these new tires to go over 110K; maybe 115K. Keep track of tire pressure for the season, front bearings in good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

This is the OEM tire on new Z51 and Z06 Corvettes (except for the Z07 package with the Cup tires). It's a solid tire for a daily driver -- no issues. What amazed me was how well the tire performed during a couple track days. Get a little heat into the tires, and they stick as well as Toyo R888's, which are a dedicated track tire I've used many times over the...  Read More

New Wheels and Tires For Your New Ford Focus RS

Did you just get a Focus RS or have one on the way? Depending on how you've configured your RS, you probably have 19x8 ET 50 dark grey cast alloy wheels on 235/35R19 Michelin Pilot Super Sports. For many RS drivers there is no need to upgrade. The Michelin Pilot Super Sport is a great match for those looking for a balanced tire. It's got a crisp steering...  Read More

Also, we will continue accepting this method for online orders, but now there is another option! If you already have a Goodyear Credit Card, then you're in luck! You can now...  Read More

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

75% of my driving is highway (70+ mph), 20% city and 5% playing in the dirt and mud.I needed to get a new set before the most recent northeast Ohio winter and just like you, I did my research. I wanted a more aggressive looking tire on my truck that could handle handle winter and not kill my mpg. I wanted to give my review after I put 10,000 miles on them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

Used mostly for Autocross on set of BBS wheels. Great traction after first heat cycle. Little wear noted after five 25 minute track sessions. Very pleased to date   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I replaced a set of Conti ExtremeContact DWS with the Conti TrueContact tire. While happy with the ExtremeContact DWS they were a bit noisy and were beat up pretty bad from some very spirited driving during the 40,000 miles I had on them. They were also getting close to requiring replacement anyway. A sidewall bubble developed after hitting a curb so I...  Read More

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

With only a few hundred miles on these tires, there isn't much of a review to be written, but I feel obligated to tell you about my first impression. First, I must tell you what I replaced...GoodYear Wrangler Duratrac. I purchased a used set of 20 GMC wheels that had the Duratracs on them. They were worn about 50%. Those tires were terrible in my opinion....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KL21

I chose the 245/65/18 tire on a search for higher ground clearance / gas mileage and not cause any interference on my 2007 Saab 97x. What I found was that this tire performs well on the highway in Wisconsin winters, snow/slush and during heavy rains in the summer. These tires work well on this vehicle probably do to its 5000 lb. weight and all wheel drive. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

only use this for my weekend fun drives. for the price, these are the bomb. tires are a soft compound so steering response is not as responsive with slight wheel turns, but when you actually do some hairpin turns and pushing these tires on the autocross, they stick like --------. i had more expensive tires but after buying these, such a waste of money. i can...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These replaced the stock Dunlop Sport Maxx RT's. Instead of putting the new PSS's on the stock wheels, I had TireRack install these PSS's on Enkei TS9's with TPMS. These are now my summer set of wheels and tires. About 800 miles were initially covered for a road trip from Salem, OR to Ontario, OR and back. The roads were dry the entire trip, which meant...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (H- or V-Speed Rated)

So I replaced my Hankook 16 inch Run Flats that came standard on the car when I bought it in 2014 with these Goodyear All Seasons. What a huge difference these All Seasons are compared to the Run Flats. I will never buy another set of Run Flats again (I guess, other than if they come standard on a new Mini and I have no other option). The Run Flats have a...  Read More

Fine Tune Your Jeep Cherokee Wheel Choice Based on Vehicle Color, Wheel Style and Overall Look

When Jeep reintroduced the Cherokee in 2014, they didn't go retro. They went bold. The current Cherokee has a pointed hood with sharp, angular body lines that make it nothing like the older XJ model. Polarizing as its design might be, the new Cherokee has been a smash hit. The good folks in Toledo made over 200,000 of them in 2015 alone. Although the design...  Read More
