Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Fantastic tire and with out a doubt the best tires I have purchased for this vehicle. I have gone through Bridgestone 46k miles. BFG 35k miles, Falken 15k miles. These tires have about 10k miles on them and I still have 10/32 tread, at this rate I should see about 80k before they get to 3/32. These tires are also great in the wet and handle highway speeds...  Read More

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

Purchased these tires because I wanted a great all around tire for the Northwest where we get a lot of rain and a little snow. I wanted a quiet tire that performed well. I previously had the Goodyear Tripletreds and they provided amazing traction but were a pretty noisy. After reading reviews I went with the General Altimax rt43 which was made in America for...  Read More

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

These tires replace the OEM Continentals at 50K miles, which was probably a few thousand past needing replaced. These tires have been rotated regularly about every 5K miles with oil changes, only rebalanced once recently. They do great in the snow, I work second shift so I tend to be driving home in some adverse conditions during the winter, with the state...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

I purchased those tires because of my dad high recommended to get those tires because of he had all tires on his few cars. Guess what? When I installed with new rims with tires, the ride is so smoothing and comfortable. I would like buying those tires when it time for replace.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature II (T-Speed Rated)

I replaced a set of the original Dunlop Signature's with these Signature II's. I got just over 95,000 out of the originals so I figured I would try the updated version and I couldnt be happier. They are super smooth, quiet, and have great traction. Theyre obviously not a sporty tire, but if you drive a lot and need a good tire that will last 100k you can go...  Read More

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

My Honda EX-L originally came with Michelin Pilots. On my previous car I had General Altimas and was completely satisfied and hoped that the new RT43 would stand up as well. The RT43 seems to be bit harder thus a bit more road noise, but still the best tire all around for safety, handling, traction, comfort, and durability. I can't fault them in any way, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Over all those are good tires, if you are deaf. They are so loud that you do not hear your thoughts while driving. More miles you have on them louder they are. Noisiness of those tired eliminate them from normal usage. After about 10k miles I'm replacing them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

I just but these tires on my bmw 750i. I can not report on tread life at this time, but I can tell you that all my friends and I can not believe the difference in the ride. It is like a different car. Feels like just came off showroom floor. Had Pirelli p-zero on it before. These sumitomo blows the Pirelli out of the water. I am amazed in the difference it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 Plus (S- or T-Speed Rated)

this is my first set of Bridgestone's and with a $70 rebate I decided to give them a try. I'm going from a 215/70/16 to a 235/55/18 lower profile tire w/OEM Xtreme wheels. I actually like the ride of the 16" oem set of generals HT's, so in comparison the ride is almost identical, which is imo is what I was hoping for. Handling and cornering are greatly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 Plus (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I bought these based on the testing results and reviews published on TireRack.com after getting only 20,000 miles out of the Dunlop SP31 A/S that the factory had installed. I was interested in a low rolling resistance tire that handled reasonable well, was safe, wouldn't break the bank, and would last a long time. These tires have fared well on those...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

It was a big jump getting away from the Conti Run Flats, but the best move I ever made, it's like a totally different car, just amazing. The car now rides and handles as I assume BMW originally intended. My only issue is not having a spare, although I do carry a plug kit, compressor and AAA card, so I am covered. Best move I ever made moving to these...  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 BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

When I bought my Volvo used, it had been sitting on the lot since December and had a new set of Bridgestone Blizzaks on. Because I bought the car at the beginning of this summer though, I purchased a new tire/wheel package from Tire Rack and set the winter tires/wheels aside for later use. I chose these g-Force COMP-2 A/S tires based on the Tire Rack ratings...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Replaced the OEM goodyears with these michelins on my 2010 infiniti g37x. Big difference in the overall ride. Quiet, smooth, excellent grip on dry roads. Best tire I have every driven in any vehicle in wet conditions. Confidence inspiring no matter how wet. Not as firm as the original tires and as a result a little less responsive when pushed. A fair trade...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Great tire life. These tires have another 10 K in them, at least. Quiet smooth comfortable ride. Very stable on dry and wet/snow road. Recommended.   Read More

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

From the moment I had these tires put on my car I noticed a significant difference in handling compared to the yokohamas I previously had. Even though my car is far from being a sports car I feel like I can throw my car into turns I otherwise would not attempt with a lesser set of rubber. These tires are going on my wife's car once her stocks have worn down...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

Just put these on, other than some impact harshness (45 series) they're ---- impressive for the money, quiet and smooth. They balanced perfectly which is more than I can say for the OE Firestone Firehawk GT. I wanted the Eagle Sports but read reviews about balance/ride disturbance issues (typical Goodyear). Steering response off center is a but slow, but I'm...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (T-Speed Rated)

My car is a hybrid, I drive nearly 4,000 miles every month for my business, and I care most about durability and reliability. I have gone through two sets of these tires, and, unbelievably, each set has lasted nearly 90,000 miles. Granted, my car is lighter than most, and I drive conservatively most of the time, because in order for me to earn a living I...  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 Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

My Acura TLX came with Bridgestone Potenza's and wore out at 22,000 miles. 400 Tread Rating and just basically ----ed!!! Anytime it rain, I was sliding... so happy to replace with Continental Extreme Contact DWS 06! They grip and are awesome... my driving style is true South Florida...I drive it like I stole it...fast on the highways at extreme speeds and...  Read More
