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.

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
