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

This tire is a wonderful choice for the Tesla Model S for a high performance summer tire. It appears be built with care as my tire shop only needed to add one or no weights to each tire for balancing. They were amazed at this. Also, the tire has no siping or tread cuts at the outer edge. This means that the tires does not throw as many small pebbles as tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I replaced my OEM Dunlop SP Sport 5000 tires at 22,000 miles on the Mazda 6 GT with these. I use them for commuting to work and in the winter I plan to run dedicated winter tires. So far this summer these have been a great deal quieter and smoother than the OE tires, and I am very happy with the ride quality. The professional installation at the dealer on a...  Read More

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

I purchased these tires to run on the front of an H-Street class Honda Civic Si. They were used in a final local event (wet) and the state championship (NCAC) in November which I won and was the highest PAXed FWD car. After two events this year they are already corded about 60 runs total. Wear is horrible on this camber limited car, which does have Honda...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Fuzion Touring (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Not exactly sure of the mileage I got out of the tires. It's just an estimation, during the winter months I run snow tires on the car. So as to the rating of snow performance. The site doesn't let you skip fields when rating how they perform. Overall I like these tires, they are certainly priced right. The real reason I wanted to write this review is my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

My car came with Continental ContiContactPro SSR Runflats. The ride was so uncomfortable and you could feel every little tiny bump on the road. The worst part is I drove over a pot hole and blew the sidewall out...so much for run-flats because I couldn't go more than 5 miles. Took it to the dealership, luckily I had tire and wheel warranty to cover the...  Read More

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

Great tires, I was concerned that they might be noisy considering the tread pattern, but no problems, the sidewalls are very stiff, and the tread wear has been excellent, first winter in New England was no problem.   Read More

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

Are 2011 Dodge Challanger came with 20 rims and Goodyear original equipment tires. Being low profile the ride was very rough, and my wife looked forward to winter when I changed her rims to an 18 rim and tire with a smoother ride. Since we got the new Pirelli tires. They ride as smooth and comfortable as an 18 tire with more sidewall. Me and my wife love...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08 R

Ran about 200 miles at Barber Motorsports park in 30-40 degree temps. Grip was amazing once warmed up but still gripped great right out of the pits. Braking is on par with other tires in the category. Ran pressures around 32/30 psi cold which translated to 36/34 hot. I never could get a good hot reading because it was cooling down a lot by the times I got to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Great tires. Definitely makes the Prius a lot quieter. That alone is a big reason to get these tires because the Prius is not a quiet car. MPGs seem roughly about the same as the tires I had on the car before, Goodyear Eagle Sports. Routine handling is smooth and secure. I like the ride, very Euro and very smooth. There is a bit of tramlining but it's not...  Read More

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

Tires have good traction in wet or dry but they are a bit more noisy than the stock pirellis that I replaced. Driving in the rain i have not had any problems with wheel spin at take off or any issues with loss of traction or hydroplaning. Cornering seems pretty stable with no squealing. My fuel mileage didn't really change with these which was a good thing....  Read More

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

I replaced Conti Sport 5's that come stock and the difference is huge. The Sport 5's probably have slightly more dry grip, but that comes with the price of lots of noise and rock hard sidewalls. I like stiff sidewalls, but the Sport 5's are stupid stiff. Made the switch to these tires and the braking, handling are 8/10s the Sport 5's but the lack of noise...  Read More

Drove across country 3 times with exposure to standing water of 2 to 3, no hydroplaning or lane drift...truly amazing . I can't say enough good things about this tire and how it performs with regard to my driving style...I am not your...  Read More
