Firsthand Product Review: Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Earlier this year, my wife an I set out to purchase a SUV. After driving several different models we decided on a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. Having driven on Bridgestone Blizzak tires for years on smaller passenger cars and having tested them multiple seasons during our yearly ice rink tests, I was curious to try out the new Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2....  Read More

Tires for Your Hyundai Genesis Sedan Marked Down

For a long time, Germany owned the luxury car game. Then along came Acura, Lexus and Infinity. Now the new hot name in luxury is Hyundai. Hyundai? Yes, Hyundai. We've heard from many Hyundai Genesis Sedan owners that they're happy with their luxury car choice. A few though have been disappointed with the average wear from their 235/50R18 Original Equipment...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

These tires ar wearing very good and I would say some what better than the michelins that they replaced. My main complaint is the sidewalls are to soft. The vehicle does not handle as well as it did with the previous set of michelin tires.Hankook makes a good tire that could be made much better by increasing sidewall strength which would make it equal to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

These have been excellent in very deep snow off road. Off road in mud dirt sand rocks etc. are amazing for a streetable tire. Iced over roads not so great, they are not as good as a dedicated winter tire on glazed over roads but they do tend to have problems gripping the polished ice. I have never had a problem with noise but you do know that they are there...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I confesses that I seldom write reviews, though I benefit from them, but these tires are so good, I have to do this. If you have read all the other reviews, as I did, you know there is general agreement on certain qualities, but a few complaints. The key fact in this is SOFT SIDEWALLS, which in turn affects all other properties. I plan to briefly confirm...  Read More

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

Sidewall gives a little while cornering or higher g-load off ramp speeds, but overall I am very pleased with this set of tires. Far superior in all weather conditions to date compared to my last set of Goodyear.   Read More

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 General Grabber HTS

Best tires I've had, Aggressive driving. I wore them out in 8000 miles doing burnouts and autocrossing the truck. I have an LS3 Corvette V8 in my single cab pickup. When the tires were new, they made ZERO road noise and rode smoothly. I took them through 8 of slushy snow and they performed. I took them through severly soft sand in a well traveled river bed...  Read More

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

After some bad luck years ago with Pirellis I gave it one more chance...and I'm glad I did. These tires are absolutely wonderful. From New York pothole streets to Turnpike driving, these tires are just right. For what they are built for,they handle excellent in high speed driving and cornering. (yes, ultra high performance will corner a little better but...  Read More

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

I had to write a review because I read another review that said the tire's sidewall is not still. Sorry, it is. Yes, these are on a legacy 3.6R, but I've had EVO VIII and G35 coupe. I've had Advan's, Michelin Pilot Super Sport, and I've had Bridgestone RE050A.These tires are as stiff as the Bridgestones, they have a wide tread (more square than most), and...  Read More

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

I do track/autocross racing with my car, and I wanted decent daily tires to have fun with on the streets.I live in FL and I was worried about how they would stand up to all the downpours and rain we get here, I was not disappointed one bit! Wet traction and hydroplane resistance is phenomenal! I was literally doing 40mph slaloms in a thunderstorm and they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

These tires...oh these tires are out of this world! Responsiveness in wet and dry conditions is amazing. Hugging turns going 80 mph, doesn't even feel like I'm turning. Now I must admit, I work for the company who sells these, BUT I am the first one to be skeptical of anything on my car. As a principle I do not purchase tires with less than a 70k mileage...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

The tire performs very well when pushing the Jeep SRT towards its limits. Sometimes difficult to get the tires to even squeal during hard cornering. I understand why this runflat was spec'd for the SRT. It is not for safety concerns and runflat capabilities, but ultimately to take advantage of the stiffer sidewalls. Unfortunately the tire wears extremely...  Read More

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

Truck has 230,000 miles, I have tried some tires. Rudy in TR customer service told me about the new tread design and I was willing to try it( thanks Rudy!!). These tires far surpass the older BFGoodrich design! They earned their mountain snow rating! We just had every kind of weather from dry to rain to warm to cold and icy and these bite! My confidence is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

I bought this tire in Alaska. I moved to Texas last summer and the tire performed well on the Alaska-Canadian Highway. The tire shows little wear at 35K miles. One thing I have noticed is the sidewall layer around the lettering is peeling. I have owned two sets of Firestone Destination tires. So far, I have been happy with the longevity and performance of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Bought these for my wife. Immediately noticed a marked reduction in gas mileage. There goes any money we hoped to save! And because the Civic has that dumb (and numb) electric steering, these tires require constant correction - very aggravating and tiring, especially on longer trips. The sidewalls are way too soft and make the car lean heavily while...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

Purchased tires 4 years ago and approximately 25,000 miles on the tires. Tread appears to be ok.More to the point, recently hit a curb going very slow. The damage is a approx. 2 gash, which from what I can tell was to the outer (raised) protective sidewall/curb protector. I have some satisfaction in that the sidewall/curb protector may have did it's job to...  Read More

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

We installed a set of these tires before taking a long trip (4000 miles) mostly highway. We replace a set of Fierce Instinct VRs that cupped badly but lasted 40k miles. Compared to those tires, these have a very high level of grip in dry and wet conditions. The ride feels like we just took 40k miles off the car. Noise levels are higher than what I suspect...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus

I replaced a full set of Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S's with these vastly superior tires after only 24,000 miles on those tires, when they developed bubbles in the sidewalls. I have nothing detrimental to say regarding the Pilot Sport A/S Pluses. They performed well in dry, wet, tropical downpour and winter Nor'easter conditions. In the very few times I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Love these tires!! I thought that the stock Goodyear tires were great, but these Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires take my car to a whole new level. Absolutely no breaking loose on hard acceleration when they are cold, unlike the stock Goodyear Supercar tires. Quiet and sticky, with great response to driver input, and excellent feedback on road conditions.Thes...  Read More
