Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

After about 25,000 miles of aggressive driving the front tires were pretty bald, but the rears still had about 75% left in them (front wheel driver). I could see a mild driver making 70,000 miles with this. The cornering abilities of these tires is something extrordinary. Pulling 0.92 Gs in corners without breaking the bead in a higher sidwall tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 2050

I have these on my Mazdaspeed3. Originally when I purchased the car I had Kuhmo Ecsta SPT summer tires, which were not so good. When I was looking to buy a new set of tires, I had the option to buy a whole new set of 2013 Speed3 rims and OE Dunlop tires so I jumped at the opportunity.These are vastly superior to the Kuhmo's. I don't know why there are so...  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 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

More Grip for Your 2015 Ford Mustang Fastback GT Performance Pack

As we saw for ourselves at Willow Springs, Ford has done an awewsome job with brand new S550 2015 Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack! As you can see in the video, the driver had a great lap, but even the best cars can desire more grip. How about swapping on some custom fit closeout matte graphite 20x10 ET40 Hotckis Y-Sports on Extreme Performance Summer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

These tires are awesome! Like having 4 wheel drive. Last two winters were a nightmare with the factory tires. Upgraded to these with a set of rims on recommendation from a friend with a 3 Series, he loves 'em. Have driven in snow and in icy conditions, tried to make them lose traction, had to push it real hard to break them loose. He said they do wear very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I used DWS 205/50's on the 16 rims that came with the car but found them to be ineffective in change of season slush or wet snow even brand new or wet roads at less than 4/32nd. I used 185/65-15 General Arctic winter tires and found them satisfactory as a summer tire when they were too worn for effective winter use. In August, I exchanged the 16 alloy rims...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have survived seven PA winters using performance all-season tires but knew it was just a matter of time before my Mustang got stuck and left me out in the cold. I did my research and opted for a set of WS80 Blizzaks for my factory rims and purchased a set of new wheels / tires for the rest of the year.My previous set of tires were Michelin Pilot Sport A/S...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

GREAT winter tires! I went with the Tire Rack Winter tire and steel wheel package. One thing about going with this package is if you get hubcaps MAKE SURE you zip tie them on or they will be gone within 48 hours as mine were. They barely stayed on the rims but I thought it was good enough. Now on to these great snow tires, my wife drives a RAV all wheel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Had the previous generation Verde (not Plus) on my previous Mercedes MLs. Moved up a size to the GL, and immediately after purchase took off the factory run-flat tires, replacing them with the Verde Plus. Extremely happy with them. I don't cut corners - the size is a touch too large (285 vs. 275) for the vehicle but that's part of what needs to be done. Ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN S.4.

If you own a BMW 1995 5 series, BUY THESE TIRES!! What a difference from the BF Goodriches they replaced! In the interest of full disclosure, though, I mounted them on 18 inch Verde Kaos rims (also bought here), not the OEM basket mesh rims. This may be an important detail. I've gotten MANY compliments on how sharp and classy this tire/wheel combo looks on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

Purchased these tires for my Prius Touring (I liked the regular tire size better than the touring so had them swapped to the 15in rims) while living in the PacNW for harsh winter driving to and from work. Tires were abused on logging roads,(yup went hunting in a prius and got funny looks from lifted truck drivers...) excelled in warm wet environments, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

I purchased a 2013 Ford Explorer 4x4 in December 2012. It came with Michelin Latitude Touring tires 245/60R-18. These are probably the worse tires to put on an SUV and after reading a lot of reviews possibly any car. I went through two Cleveland winters with them and refused to take on another. I consider these Michelins to be absolutely treacherous in snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

This tire is sold as an all season tire, but it really isn't met to see a lot of snow. It's supposed to be a sporty tire for luxury sport coupes, etc. I have Honda Fit wheels on my civic and unfortunately when I went looking for a summer tires (I have winter tires on my other set of rims), there weren't any in the oem size that I wanted. I purchased these,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Got a set of 4, WS80'S and rims off of Tire rack and everything came and fit just right . First snow 5-8 inches and I love the tires they stick to the road great. This is the first set of stud less snow tires I have ever owned and now I see what the fuss is about. The wife's front wheel drive Equinox handles better and gets going as good as my Z71Chevy 1/2...  Read More

For the longest time, the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord dominated the mid-size sedan game. Then Hyundai crashed the party with the Sonata! The sixth-generation 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata has been particularly competitive but it still needs dedicated winter tires for the safest winter handling. When it comes to balancing snow and dry road handling, each one of...  Read More

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

This is a review for both the General Tires and Anzio Wave wheels I purchased together.Chances of me ever walking in to any Tire Service Center and buying tires again are pretty darn slim. Granted, if I were out of town miles away from home and really needed a new tire I guess I would go ahead and get it done. But getting tires and wheels (rims)...  Read More

Are Sport Edition Wheels Good?

Yes! They may not equal the high style and lightweight of the more expensive wheel lines like BBS, O.Z. Racing and Enkei Racing Series, but for many drivers, the Sport Edition wheels are a great lower cost option. Sport Edition offers aluminum alloy wheels that have durable painted with clearcoat finishes offered in a variety of colors and styles.   One...  Read More
