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

Replaced original Goodyear ZP on 2007 Corvette Conv. with 35K miles. Immediate reduction in road noise and comfort of ride. Sidewall is softer and absorbs noise much better than original run flat tires. Eliminated humm from back tires that I thought was just par for the course for tires with this much road contact. Paid more for independent garage to install...  Read More

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

First off.... if you own a 2008+ Audi TT MK 2 w/ 255/35/19's (2cd generation style) you will have a problem with these on the rear of your car even though you are using the stock sizing.These tires are beefier than the ContiSport summers it came with . Once installed the rear tires will hit the tab that hangs down off the body inside the rear wheelhouse...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I finally caved in to what I thought was hype about snow/winter tires and bought a set of Michelin X-Ice3 tires for my Sonic. After driving through a michigan winter on them... WOW! I was VERY impressed with how well these tires worked in the snow. A little FWD car that everyone thought I was crazy for driving it in the winter... short of being stuck in a...  Read More

My Tire's Sidewall is Bulging. Now What?

A break, bulge or bubble in the sidewall of your tire is typically the result of an impact that damaged the tire casing's fabric reinforcing plies. This means only thin layers of rubber remains to contain air inside the tire. Replacing the tire as soon as possible is the best path forward. If you have road hazard coverage, this should be a covered event. Tire...  Read More

Worried About How Your New 2016 - 2017 Chevy Camaro Will Do in the Snow? Relax, We Got Your Back!

Having a fun sporty car used to mean that you also needed a second car to handle the winter months. This is no longer the case as modern traction control systems and ever improving winter tires mean the fun doesn't have to stop when the snow falls. For example, you have a 2016 Camaro and we have several tire and wheel options to get you through the...  Read More

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

The BRZ acts completely different. The first day I drove up and down the mountain in the rain. I drove pretty conservative because I didn't know how they would perform (the old tires were bald and had no wet traction at all), but slowly I started pushing further into the curves and was surprised how much wet traction I had.One of the things I always wished I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I just purchased these tires last week for use on my moderately modified 2002 Mazda Protege. These tires are incredibly quiet for a snow tire and they roll beautifully. In fact, they feel very similar to the Michelin Energy Saver A/S tires that I use on one of my other cars, a Toyota Prius. The X-ice Xi3 is the BEST overall snow tire in the heavy snow/ice...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

These tires came with my CPO VW routan 2012. these tires are really good, and it has longer miles down the road. Sidewalls are stiff enough to handle my heavy minivan. I took my van in those mini trips and long driving, including very harsh condition like rainstorms and to the extremely hot desert. These tires handles it very well and i see that it has 30k...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A2

@ nearly 20k miles these tires have changed in personality quite a bit. They are currently at 6/32 depth for what just left the front and closer to 7/32 than 8/32 depth for the rears. In particular, the tire has changed drastically in the past 3k miles and I am sorry to say two of those are changes for the worse.The wet traction in general is now barely...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Well i had these tires and so far i love them. They handle great and respond amazing. Unfortunately one of these tired of my set of 4 got a bubble on the side wall with only 2900 miles on them. It seems that they did a great job with the tread that the forgot about the sidewall. Luckily tirerack.com has the road hazard protection (side note: no i am not paid...  Read More

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

These tires replace the prior generation Michelin A/S 3's that I had on the car. One of the great features is the 45K mile warranty -- which I used to get into these tires. After 21K miles, the prior set was down to 3/32 in front and 4/32 in rear. They had gotten noisy, harsh, and obviously past their expected traction sweet-spot. So these new A/S 3+'s are a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

These tires replace a set of Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza that are about 6 years old with 5/32 tread depth and significant cracking on sidewalls and between the treads. After having the tires mounted and balanced, I immediately took a 1,100-mile road trip with three passengers, our camping gear, and the gear for a fourth person in our group who was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

Great tire so far with less than 500 miles. Tested in snow, rain and dry weather so far very impressive. Don't know if its me or the tire but sidewalls seem a little soft when cornering.   Read More

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

It is somewhat difficult to distinguish the performance benefits of these tires from those of permanent AWD. A set of Yokohama ENVigor ultra high performance all-season tires, which preceded the current set of Cinturato P7 All Season Plus tires, provides the primary benchmark by which comparison may be drawn.Winter Storm Jonas of 2016 was a challenge for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Radial 857

These tires de-laminated in less than 2000 miles < 2 years. Sidewall separation.. 19' trav. trailer <3000 GVW. Stored indoors. Fortunately I caught it before total failure.. Unfortunately, it's the only 14 load range D tire I could find. If possible, I would steer clear of these. Some searching found this to be a common failure.   Read More

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

After reading dozens of reviews of this tire, by far the most accurate was posted on 4/5/2016 from the owner of a Lexus GS 350. That review is exactly the way I feel about my G37x sedan, which is a dynamically similar sports sedan. This tire lives up to the high marks for a smooth, quiet ride and great traction. It's an excellent choice for most cars, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

My 2002 911 Carrera C2 does spirited daily driver duty as well as a few PCA autocross events each year. I have the factory 18 wheel option. These tires replaced the Hankook Ventus K112 that lasted 13,137 in similar use. After the fifth run in yesterday's autocross I noticed a thin white line of tire cord exposed on the Contis rear driver's side tire at the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I just turned over 40K on a set of duratracs for my F150. I am very impressed. I would estimate I have another 10-15K left on this set. They are getting bit loud as expected for an agressive AT tire with some wear.Snow traction is awesome. I can back up my driveway (which is on a hill) in 2wd. I couldn't do that with the stockers. I read alot of reviews...  Read More
