Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 3

I would recommend this tire to someone I care for .... I've tried an awful lot of tires, (semi slicks , winter tires , low spec summers , high performance ones etc.) this one is an exceptional allrounder ,gets warm very fast ,good in wet, I will buy these tires again, a slight complaint, I would prefer the sidewalls to be a bit stiffer in order to improve...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A

These are the oem tires on my gen coupe and I've been very impressed with them. Very stiff sidewalls that don't flex in turns, very progressive traction, they definitely let you know they're at their limits before letting free. Grip has been outstanding even in the wet, even with 350hp I still have to really try hard to get it to kick the back end out. As...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

This is the second set of these tires for this vehicle and I am highly satisfied with them for my application on my increase performance vehicle.. That being here is the good ; excellent grip in sharp turns, wet traction with least hydroplaning, and not braking traction from a standstill power takeoff yet. It also has a very forgiving ride on bumpy roads due...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

I've only got 4,000 on these but they are show no wear at all and I'm sure they will go for 40,000 plus miles. They track very well and don't display any wandering that I had with my previous Continentals. Snow traction was OK this winter, but still not as good as a dedicated set of snow tires. Overall I really am pleased with them. Michelin has made this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

These replaced stock Hankook Optimo 431s on an '11 Sonata 2.0T. Those tires worked well in dry traction but were wearing unevenly. With these Pirellis, I'm noticing slightly sharper steering response and feel more comfortable with handling on swooping sections of Southern California freeways as compared to the 431s. But I only have a couple of hundred miles...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Originally used the AVID V4S--absolutely awesome entry level sport tire (discontinued). I switched to this tire because it was developed from the V4S. It's not as good in my opinion, but has excellent traits.The low rolling resistance technology incorporated is great for commuting, ok for track use--the sidewalls appear to be a bit soft. Still provides more...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Winter Slalom KSI

Our Toyota Highlander V6 AWD has always been a good winter vehicle. Excellent in all wintertime driving conditions from glare-ice to a foot or more of deep snow. I drive about 75 miles rt for work each day, mostly expressway driving in Michigan's snow belt. Last winter (2013) was a bad winter so this year I went with as set of winter tires for the first...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Overall a very good experience with this tire. I think next time I would stick with 17 diameter wheels instead of going down a size to 16. But sidewall support even on the 16's still very good. One thing you want to be aware of is the tracking these tires will do in grooved pavement. On upstate NY thruways, it actually felt unsafe as the tire tread tries to...  Read More

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

Switched from $300 each-Eagle RS-A to these $161.00 each, B.F. Goodrich Comp2. Instant improvement in PRICE $$$, and ride quality over the RS-A. Steering response is immediate--no squishy-ness or wobble. Dry traction is fantastic. Wet traction is O.K. on plain old wet roads, but NOT through anything over 2 inches of water--hydroplanes badly and lose steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Had a puncture to the passenger right front while on the hwy. TPMS signaled low tire pressure so I pulled into a service station. Tire was completely flat but supporting the vehicle. I filled the tire back to 36psi to get to a tire repair facility and as soon as i was back on the hwy, the TPMS went off again. I was 43 miles from destination and decided to go...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I don't go off road, so didn't want all terrain tires. the stock Goodyear SRA's are just junk, very dangerous in rain, so I didn't even wanna see what snow would be like. I have always been a big believer in winter dedicated tires for winter months. Put the proper dedicated tires on for what the environment calls for, you only have 4 small contact patches of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

Replaced the OEM Continetal Procontacts with these. I live in FL where an Allseason tire makes no sense. The handling, braking, and everything is so much better then even the best allseason tire. On a few corners where the car would whine and dance about doing 35-40mph in dry conditions, can now be taken at 50-55mph with no noise or fuss. Very confidence...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Had these tires on for 5 months, one complete Minn. winter. So far they are great. A little soft in the sidewalls. You notice it during hard cornering, but nothing to worry about. Traction in snow, on ice, dry pavement all is excellent. Very quiet, nice ride, definitely a good tire. Wear is perfect, had alignment right after installation.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

OK. I replaced the Hankook Dynopro's for these and there is a difference. The Michelin's give better control and much smoother ride. The truck doesn't bounce hardly at all. I only had 7k on the Hankkook's and got rid of them when the wife's car (Sonata) tires (Hankook's) developed a whelp on the sidewall. I didn't trust them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Purchased these after my OEM Dunlops wore out. WHAT A DIFFERENCE the MPSS's make.The wet traction is almost unnatural. It is seriously unbelievable how well these grip in wet. I opted to go with a wider tire size (245) and shorter sidewall (40)So I was worried about harshness from uneven roads... NOPE! They actually ride much smoother than the OEM dunlops...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I was surprised at how well this tires performed, particularly in winter conditions. This was the first all season tire I have used in the winter in quite some time. Before I had always put on dedicated winter tires. I was very pleased with the way this tire handles slush, snow and ice. The ride in dry conditions is also very quiet and comfortable with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

Bought these to replace OEM Continentals. Huge, positive difference. Felt like I'd installed a new set of shock absorbers/struts. They smooth out bumps and potholes, sidewall roll on turns is definitely minimized, reducing oversteer. Significant reduction in noise. Deep channeling maintains confidence in the wet, only hydroplaned when going way too fast for...  Read More

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

Leveling Kit installed. Best tires I've had on any truck. 60,000+ 95% were highway/city miles. Road Noise minimal. Ride Smoothly. Rotate Regularly though! Every 3-5k Thick sidewalls handle corners well.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

I am a bit of a tire geek and a believer that you buy a tire for a certain function. Know what you need it to do, and then decide on a tire accordingly. Do not assume that any tire with a good rating will make you happy. I have aggressive performance tires on my sports car. For the SUV, I have a set of LRR highway tires, and a set of dedicated snow tires....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

my old bfg ko in same size had over 60,000 and not good for another winter. I didnt like the wet road performance and hydoplaning. but did love the tire life and off road strengths. the gt at2 had the bow tie tread and good reviews and was cheaper. On road the at2 is quieter, handles better and doesnt hydoplane. winter ice and snow was better too, although...  Read More
