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

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

I drive a Mazdaspeed3 on H&R coilovers and an aftermarket rear swaybar to lessen understeer. Treadwear is average for a performance tire. I'm on track to hit the wear bars at 15k. Dry traction is great and the sidewalls are stiff enough that you can throw the car into a turn hard and not roll the sidewalls. Lane changes are a just a flick of the steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Bought this tire to use with my summer wheels in march 2013 and have been very happy with the ride comfort, steering response and grip on the road in dry and wet weather. This tire does have kind of a soft sidewall but as long as you don't hit potholes very hard you are ok. I switch to winter tires around November and it has taken it's first year worth of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

By far the best tire I've ever had. I bought many of the other brands but none all as good as this tire for all conditions. Hydro planing is almost non existant, awesome in the snow and excellent on dry pavement. Highly recommend this tire for all seasons. Only con is that they don't like potholes, sidewalls are kinda weak.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Only after 1600 miles, I noticed how much quieter these tires were compared to the OEM Pirellis. We just had a light snowfall and these tires performed exactly as I had anticipated. I tried to spin all four tires in the snow, but couldn't. One thing I have not liked about continentals are their softer sidewalls. I am thinking these tires seem to flex more...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Great tire, loved the fact it had 70,000 mile rating, but probably would make that rating if you drove that kind of mileage in a few years. Had mine for 3yrs and tread is used up half way , but the weather has cracked them to point that one has got a tiny pin hole on edge of tread and leaks down in a two week period, my state doesn't allow for sidewall and...  Read More

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

Purchased these tires(from a local dealer) based on reviews as a replacement for Michelin MXV4. These are tough tires to properly road force balance. Ride is a bit jittery and after two attempts at balancing (values of 13 lbs. on all four tires) the ride is still disappointing. Road noise is great but will not know snow handling characteristics until this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

I have had my Trans Am for 8 years and have gone through 3 sets of Good year eagles fi gs ds or whatever they are calling them now. The ones with the aqua v shape tread. I would have purchased again this past August but for some reason good year dropped the ball. No one had them in stock ! Unreal ! I did find a local tire dealer but I wasnt going to pay...  Read More

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

Bought these to replace the extremely noisy Bridgestone Turanza's that came factory with my 12' mazda3 iGT. I upgraded to 17 matte anthracite MOMO revenge wheels in the process (factory size for Mazda3 sGT) to give a more aggressive look as well as cut down on the sidewall to increase handling. I STRONGLY recommend doing this to anyone with $ to do so. This...  Read More

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

Initial review shortly after purchase. After experiencing the smooth, quiet ride on my wife's new Bridgestone Serenity tires, I decided to retire my previous set of half worn Goodyear Tripletreads due to noise and harsh ride quality. Based on reviews here and my priority for smooth, quiet ride I chose the Pirelli P7 AS plus. My initial impression is that I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

In a word: planted. That's how you feel when you take a curve at what would have been an unsafe speed when you still had lesser tires. I can't overstate what a great tire this is for the money. For less than $200 a tire, these are a steal. They transformed my Audi A4 quattro from a nice commuter sedan to a cornering beast. Cornering is now considerably...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Back when I bought this set of 4 Michelin Defender tires, I was hoping to purchase Michelin Destiny tires. Destiny had just been discontinued and I was unable to find them anywhere. Due solely to the past experience with Michelin on two of our other vehicles, I went ahead with this new model.They have been a disappointment. In the three years of use,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

Please note: I purchased these tires from Tire-Rack in June of 2014 and elected to not rate them until now. There is no way a tire can be fully evaluated in 2 weeks as you see on some reviews. I now have 8200 miles on these tires and I can fully state that I am very please with all aspects of there performance. Mostly dry weather conditions, but we did have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

These are the 2nd set of Extreme Continentals I've purchased. This tire is the best buck for your $! The ONLY complaint I have is the treadwear. I'm no speed demon, but my BMW is rear wheel drive and it seems that these tires installed on rear wheel drive cars tend to wear out very fast. Both my rear tires wore down to the bone by 15,000 miles but the 2...  Read More
