Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

These tires are really nice lots of traction during wet and dry weather. I noticed these tires work well during heavy rain mine also road smooth and no annoying road sound. But the one down fall is they wear out fast you might get 15k miles out of them if you drive hard on them but Well worth it.   Read More

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

Being from NJ, I drove down the Garden State Pkwy during a torrential rain storm and not once I felt unsecured driving on these tires, I could not believe it would not give me any sign of hydroplaning any speed I pushed on (55m/h+) while ALL the cars on front of me had their flashing light on, I was cruising along with no problem at all, the grip was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I purchased a set of Driveguards from my local Cadillac dealership and they installed them with a road force balance. The car originally had Bridgestone Potenza Run Flats. My car now finally rides like a Cadillac because of these driveguards. They are absolutely better than the Potenzas in every way except for cornering. Don't get me wrong my car still...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

What a wonderful upgrade to the Blizzak WS70! Snow ice/performance is stellar as expected. What shocked me was how well the tire behaves in the dry. Unlike my WS70s, these do not exhibit any of the 'loose snow tire feel!' No guilt or pressure to switch them out this way in the springtime, which worked out well with our late winter storm this year.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

I purchased these tyres expecting them to be sub-par compared to other rugular snow tyres, but these really impressed me. I have about 7,000 miles on them so far and they have handled terrifically. I would definitely buy these again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Had a very snowy winter in Reno. Had to drive on snowpack and ice on several occasions. They worked well on all snow, ice , wet and dry pavement.   Read More

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

Noisiest tire ever!! Louder than the shagged Bridgestone Blizzak's they replaced. I bought these tires because they were inexpensive and have an aggressive tread as a compromise to swapping out dedicated snows every year so I did not expect them to be quiet, but holy cow....my normally quiet sedan now sounds like a turbo prop airplane taxiing down the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

my comments may come across as crude 2 the faint of heart. so, i'll just say move on as i truly mean no harm. 4 those that wish 2 glean some useful info on a tire, don't waist your time reading comments on rubber with less than 7k miles - USELESS DRIBBLE! ok, so much 4 commentary how about the 06.i've had legacy dws on my lex gs 400 / 430 and ls 460 - loved...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Cinturato

I purchased these tires with steel rims for my recently purchased Fiesta ST. Due to purchasing the car in late November, I knew I had limited time with the Summer only tires from the factory. I saw these and thought I would give them a try. My impressions as of late are that these are great winter tires, even for the winter driving enthusiast. On the dry...  Read More

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

These tires are on our 07 MB GL450. I was torn between another value tire and a good deal on the Continentals OEM. The Conti's wore out like in 15000 miles. I decided not to go with a value tire as they have not performed well, nor lasted well, nor have any decent ride quality in this vehicle. (Last value tire was a set of Hankooks) These have an 80k mileage...  Read More

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

Rubber compound quality is excellent, provides better acceleration and braking distance reduction than its previous generation.... However, these tires have lower side sliding resistance than its previous generation. Tires received harsh wear and were constantly rotated and balanced for testing purposes. Things that stood out: excellent high temperature grip...  Read More

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

I have been extremely happy with this tire. I purchased this tire in October of 2016 and I have over 12,000 miles already. This tire has been through many different temperatures and weather conditions. From 80 degrees and dry roads to 10 degrees with Snow and Ice, these tires have done GREAT! I have never had a tire that can pass through so many weather...  Read More

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

I have put two sets of these Michelin's on our car and I am about to put on a third. I got 80,000 miles out of the first set, 70,000 out of the second and only replaced because I will be potentially be driving them in snow. My only criticism of the tires is that I have not found the traction to be great in snow and mud the few times I have my Pilot in those...  Read More

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

Spent a weekend in Sacramento area from SF Bay Area this weekend. Had mix of crazy weather over weekend - sunny & dry, cold and slightly icy, hard pouring rain and a bit of hail. Tires performed extremely well over dry asphalt - quiet, sticky, crisp and responsive. Was expecting it to deteriorate in rain, hail and wet pavement, but didn't skip a beat. Not a...  Read More

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

I now know how the other half live! What an incredible difference. I bought these to replace the OEM equipped Goodyear Eagles, which were acceptable in most driving conditions, but brutal in winter. I started to wonder if it was the car. Nope, definitely the tires! It is not surprising to roll off the driveway and onto a snow covered road in our development...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Best New Tire I have bought in years. I have them on my Toyota Camry and now on my Hyundai Genesis. They perform perfectly under all conditions. I love these tires. Very quite and good ride   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T RH-S

These Bridgestone Dueler AT RH-S tires came stock from the factory (P265/65R18 OWL) on my 2009 Silverado Z71 crew cab. Overall, during 51,000+ miles and 6 years, I would rate them as maybe a little better than average. These tires have never pulled a trailer or hauled a load in the bed, and they've been used 50% city/40% highway/10% gravel. I am a stickler...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

These Dunlops are excellent, after reading a few reviews, I was a bit hesitant in getting them, but an incident on the highway quickly changed my mind. I'm glad I went with my gut and got these. They are way quieter than the OEM Michellins that came with the car. With an AWD vehicle like the MDX these tires take to cornering real well, I'm no longer fighting...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I love these tires! I replaced the completely adequate Michelin Primacy mxm4 tires which I put nearly 60000 miles on with these Premier AS tires last fall. I plan on using my 06 AWD Magnum RT as primarily a winter car since recently purchasing a 15 Challenger RT. I believe that the improved wet and snow traction is well worth the premium price point. They...  Read More
