Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force R1

I put 23 heat cycles on these tires, 9 of them at the Circuit of the Americas, the rest at VIR. They stuck like glue at COTA causing me to lift the inside wheel on a number of corners, including sweepers that surprised me. Driving like my hair was on fire did take some life out of the outer sections of the tires but I had them flipped and got 12 more good...  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 Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I had Continentals on the car recently and loved everything but the handling. I have to admit I like to push roundabouts & off ramps faster than the recommended speeds, but there again, that is my preference. The tires were quiet, comfortable & great in poor weather, but under heavy steering, I lost confidence in the car's feeling of stability. These Good...  Read More

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

Bought these to replace the extremely noisy Bridgestone Turanza's that came factory with my 12' mazda3 iGT. I upgraded to 17 matte anthracite MOMO revenge wheels in the process (factory size for Mazda3 sGT) to give a more aggressive look as well as cut down on the sidewall to increase handling. I STRONGLY recommend doing this to anyone with $ to do so. This...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The Michelin PSS is an amazing tire, and worth the money. I went with the stock size, 235/50/R18 for the Mustang GT. Compared to my stock BF Goodrich KDW, they made a completely different car. It turned my sloppy muscle car into Porche. However after 7,000 miles, they're already past the wear bars. I do drive it pretty hard in daily driving, and do 2 - 3...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

Replaced the factory equipped Bridgestone Turanza EL400's with the Potenza RE760's right out of the gate. Had the Turanza's on a 2012 Camry SE V6, and they were good for the first 10,000 miles...tops. Bought a set of wheels/winter tires since the Turanza's would've been junk in the snow. Since I now have the winter set, I wanted to give my new '15 Camry XSE...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hoosier A7

I have run many track tires and by far these hoosier A7s are the stickiest most predictable compound ever. I run the 275/35/15 on a 2200lb, 215 front wheel horsepower supercharged Focus (yes,a Ford Focus) on all 4 corners and first time out set the Super Unlimited track record (1:48.7 seconds) at a 14 turn,2.3 mile road course (Whiskey Hill Raceway in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

I replaced the original Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric tires after about 30,000 miles. They were noisy and very easy to turn over off the line. Never had any issues with dry traction or grip in the corners but wet driving FORCED me to slow down. As they accumulated miles they remained predictable and consistent but did get much louder as they got closer to the...  Read More

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

This car notoriously wears tires out quickly. Especially at the inner edges of the tires. I completely burned through a new set of mushy & squealing DWS`s after one 1.5 summers. (I use winter tires) In this category of tire, we all want the best performance we can get with longevity. These tires are the perfect tire for this rear wheel drive car. Grip is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

- Only a person with lots of money to spend can afford to buy cheap tires, because when the tires fail or wear out prematurely, They can afford to go out and buy more tires. However, the average working person with a mortgage, car payment, children in school, braces, and the like, has to buy tires that will last, because they can't afford to go out and keep...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

These are the 2nd set of Extreme Continentals I've purchased. This tire is the best buck for your $! The ONLY complaint I have is the treadwear. I'm no speed demon, but my BMW is rear wheel drive and it seems that these tires installed on rear wheel drive cars tend to wear out very fast. Both my rear tires wore down to the bone by 15,000 miles but the 2...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiContact UHP SSR

I am 37 and before I talk about wear/performance, I want to put things in perspective. I ordered my car in Germany and spent my first year of ownership on the autobahn. I consistently drove between 140-160mph on cruise control (it's limited to 160)...and yes, miles per hour. Now that i'm back in the USA, i've had to tone it down a little; I average 85-110mph...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These tires were the 6th set and the longest lasting ones that I have had on my 2006 Honda Civic EX...they lasted 42,800 miles. The front tires could last me until winter, but I am going to go ahead and replace all four now since there is a $70 rebate. Previous tires have lasted 24,000-32,000. Civics are notorious for chewing up the rear tires due to issues...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek AT20

I'm gonna keep it short. I made 57K on these tires and I can't say anything bad. I live in Illinois so the weather here is unpredictable sometimes. I was surprised how well this tire performed in snow (All 4 wheel driving mode)The treadwear is 300 low but it helps out in winter. If you're more on the racing side this tire will wear out a lot quicker. Im not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Overall impression of this set of tires is very good. Steering turn-in is not quite as sharp as with previous tires. I mounted and balanced this set myself on state-of-the-art Hunter equipment. Two things stand out: 1) Very little weight was needed to balance these tires, and in fact, one needed nothing. I have used this rule of thumb as an informal...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza

These were OEM for my 2010 Sequioa Limited. Bridgestones were not my first choice but I ended up replacing the originals with another set of Bridgestones earlier this month (July 2015). I think Bridgestone makes an excellent tire and I got great mileage and service from the originals. But I wanted to replace them with a set of Continentals. I can't complain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

Bought set of 4 of these tires when we got a nail through the sidewall of the stock bridgestones at 40k miles.First impression was wow the bridgestones were loud and the good years were near silent. They did not get much louder through the 55k life of usage. They also smoothed out what was a rough OEM ride. Tires were rotated regularly and wore great. They...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

Replaced the original Eagle LS-2's in April 2014 after 38,000 miles with H-rated Altimax HP's. Previous experience with them on two other cars left me impressed with their price-to-performance. A few weeks back, someone (not me ;) ) took out the two right side tires. Since the Altimax is now discontinued, they were replaced with these W-rated G-Max' and put...  Read More

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

Do you want to go fast in an SCCA Solo class requiring 200TW tires? If you do, then buy this tire if it fits on your car. These are simply the best tires for autocrossing you can buy this year for SCCA CAM, Street or Street Touring classes. I have a set mounted on 10.5 inch rims on my Mustang competing in the CAM-C class. Pretty much everyone driving...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

I'm on my third set of the Hancook Ventus V12 evos. Size 225/45/17 on Enki Racing RP-F1 wheels. Car Fwd Audi TT Mk 1 w/uprated HP.Car came with Nexus all weather tires. Comfortable, quiet, adequate. At change time, went to Pirelli P Zero Rosso hi-perf summer tires. Significant positive difference. Even torque steer went up. So did wear! Didn't make it until...  Read More
