Must I Keep My Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Functional?

When shopping for new wheels and tires for your 2008 model-year or newer vehicle, you will have to address the tire pressure monitoring system. The National Highway Traffic Safety Agency (NHTSA) and a handful of states have made the option of running without sensors a little more limited. This can become complicated and should be addressed directly with a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2

So i cooked these tires after 3190 miles, hard driven, carving concrete, daily cruising speeds of 125 to 140 mph on my commute to work. Sometimes at peeling done until the very end when it was inevitable to replace them. This IS THE TIRE. On rainy days it will not disappoint you. A must buy.   Read More

Potenza RE-11 Positioned for Long Run at the Top

There’s no doubt temperatures around the country are at summer time highs. This time of the year is great for cookouts, hanging by the pool…and pushing your car’s traction and handling levels.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

In the past I always would purchase the Bridgestone Revo's on one ton trucks vans ETC. This tire has far exceeded my expectations. It is very quiet for a truck of this size, the ride is so much better. Most of the time I have a trailer being pulled behind with another car on it.Very confident handling, I have not tried them in snow yet, but looking at the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

I love this tire ... on this car. It's actually my wife's car, but since she doesn't commute anymore, it's there for both of us. The OEM tires survived for about 50k miles, but they were puncture magnets and finally, when I found a screw imbeded in the tread about an inch from a previous plug, I decided to swap them out. I have to admit I chose the Kumhos...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

The first time I pushed the tire in corners it performed so well the safety limiter for the car (it starts to shut down the ignition if the car exceeds the preset tilt limit or higher G forces than the safety engineers programed in the computer) started to slow me down. I see that yellow warning light occasionally and laugh how well these tires perform. They...  Read More

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

This tire is awesome. You just know how special it is, from the moment you start driving...When you cross over any kind of painted surface in the road, you can tell just how sticky the tire sounds like Velcro being ripped apart. I took a VERY SHARP highway exit ramp, at breathtaking speed, I thought I was going to be thrown out of the side window, a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

These tires are great in rain. Excellent ride quality as well. If you're looking for a run flat, these are a great choice. Can't really give a meaningful review on snow/ice performance, but for wet and dry conditions, these are truly great tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

Michelin is Excellence!!! There is no better on road tire unless you live in Snow Country the majority of the year!!!Original Equipment was Continentals. They are a B + Tire with 16 +/- MPH on my truck. Then I went for a Larger Tire Size, Toya Open Country (35 Inch Tire) 14 +/- MPH. This Tire is a good off road tire. Highway performance, rain and snow were C...  Read More

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

I'm not often compelled to write positive reviews, I tend towards writing negative reviews to assist others from making the same mistakes I have. In this case, this tire is not a mistake. I am coming from OEM Goodyear LS2 ROF (Run on Flat) tires in 245/45 19 size to the AS/3 + in the same size and the difference is nothing short of transformative.Most...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

Used roughly 90% on logging and very rough roads and in 4x4 drive. These tires were my 3rd set. Never got blown by a rock. They were rotated regularly every 10,000 km (~6,400 Mi). Tear and wear very evenly. They are OK on muddy roads at relatively low speeds, but are excellent on gravel roads. Very quiet on hwy and handling wet roads very good. I've never...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

The tires have only been on the car for about 1,000 miles, so there is not too much to report. They ride and handle well. Tire is quiet at any speed. Have not experienced any snow, so I cannot comment on such. Don't feel like I can comment on how they are wearing as they are brand new. Tire looks great on the car.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

My first set of the KUMHO ECSTA 4X II's got me about 38K miles before I replaced them and at that point the tread was basically gone off of at least two tires. That being said, they're inexpensive and when they're new they perform wonderfully. I bought a 2nd set and I may drive a little less spiritedly to see if I can get more life out of them.   Read More
