Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

I replaced a set of Firestone Destination LE (not II) that had lasted about 35,000 mi. In comparison, these tires were orders of magnitude quieter. They are great on dry roads, I have had to make a few emergency stops and have felt quite confident in their performance. Quick starts on wet roadways result in absolutely no wheel slippage (partially attributed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

3,500 miles of mixed dry and light snow (<4) and i have to say that i do recommend this tire versus no snow tire at all. They PALE in comparison to my old Blizzak ws-60 (sadly not offered anymore) because the Wintermaxxx's have a more standard tire design for dry comfort and noise, instead of thick chunky tread blocks that are unparalleled on snow and ice. With that more traditional design, the blocks are much closer together, giving slightly less traction on snow and ice than the Blizzaks. As this is a sport coupe, I took my time on heavy snow and anything more than 5 mph would cause the car to slide sideways. The tires did a good job at gripping upon braking however, and I know that my summer tires would simply spin. While not the very best winter tire, Dunlop has made a good overall tire for the 90% of winter in NJ that is dry and salt-covered. Treadwear has been very good with rubber stips still apparent after 3,500 of generally easy miles. Handling is appropriate for a winter tire, which is to say much softer than a standard tire, but that's to be expected. For the price, I'd recommend these to anyone looking to have a safe commute in winter months. Adding some weight to the trunk (RWD) and applying smooth acceleration will give you best feedback with these tires. I know many companies are creating winter tires that mimic summer tires for noise and comfort, but bring back the blocky tread design Dunlop! Overall, well executed tires at a reasonable price. Much cheaper than crashing and dealing with insurance premiums for years!   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 Michelin Pilot Sport PS2

Michelin PS2 are much better than Bridgestone Potenza S02 and S02A. In comparison to Bridgestone's, the PS2 noise level is much, much lower which allows me to hear more things now with motor and driveline that I never heard before. It also canceled some of the droning I heard which now I understand was a combination of exhaust AND tire noise. I almost bought...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Tires used 6 seasons so far and will probably use again next year. Mileage listed is approximate. Studded. Traction is incredible. This year was a great year to have them and after 5 previous seasons I was not afraid to drive anywhere under any conditions. Highly recommend studs for packed snow and ice. There is no comparison. These tires should be mandatory...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HT RH12

I am a long-time fan of Hankook tires, but this is my first experience with this particular (SUV/Truck) model. I had these installed on my Toyota RAV-4 after much comparison to other premium brands. Absolutely no regrets. I've found them to be excellent performers and an outstanding value! They provide a very smooth and quiet ride, with great hydroplane...  Read More

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

Changed from Pilot Sport ZP to Pilor Sport AS3 ... Wow much more quiet and softer ride. I know run flats might be a good insurance policy, but if you try these in comparison you will not go back. I carry a small compressor and tire sealant. I feel like a just got s new Vette. Also customer service and support from Seth at Tire Rack was excellent.   Read More

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

Let me begin by saying that I always read these reviews with an open mind. But I never know how to really take them. So I write this strictly as a comparison between the tire that came on my car and the Goodyear eagle sport. My mazda 3 came with Yokohama avids in 205/50 17. The cars handling made up for what the tires lacked. The Yokohamas didn't do anything...  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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I've had these tires through highway/city, pot holes, heavy rain, and they've performed great so far. They were replacing the OE Dunlop SP SPORT 7000 A/S which lasted almost 70k but were definitely due. By comparison I can say that even vs the Dunlops when new these Contys make less noise and ride much better especially when the roads get rough. What sold me...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

These tires replaced a set of Goodyear Eagle GT's. I was not pleased with the harshness of the ride produced by the Goodyears and the wear was rather rapid. I drive the car only on weekends and on trips and realized 54,000 miles on them, which is is not unreasonable. Yet I had to to rotate them frequently to balance that wear, evenly.In comparison, the BFG's...  Read More
