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

I had a set of the Michelin A/S 3's on my 2008 Audi A6 (19 wheels) and loved them -- all aspects of the tire. So I opted for a set on my 2008 Audi A8 Sport (20 wheels) and initially loved the tires, but as time and mileage accrued, I have noticed a marked reduction in wet weather traction and an increase in propensity to hydroplane. I am only about 1/2 way...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (W-Speed Rated)

These tires are a huge improvement to my last set; in all categories (although I haven't been in rain or snow with them. (So Cal is still pretty dry). These tires exhibit outstanding traction in cornering, and a better ride quality than previous Z-speed rated tires I had. Very little road noise, combined with excellent dry handling (rain is probably very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

I replaced my 2nd set of OE Michelin Diamaris due to uneven tire wear, high noise levels, etc. My first impressions were WOW! no noise (low speed or at 85 mph), small imprefections in road surfaces are a lot less noticeable, and handling dry or wet is great. Now that I have more than 2,500 mile on them my first impressions continue.Do they have the same dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I like these tires. I bought these tires several months ago, but didn't get any real driving in because I was having some work done on the car. I'm only writing this review because I'm highly impressed with these tires. Today is 4th of January and it is a slightly rainy day in Western, PA. I drive 60 miles one way to work I do not normally drive this car in...  Read More

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

Purchased this tire for my daughters car, which also carries my grandson. Her main stipulation in a tire was good snow traction. In our recent heavy snow in Salt Lake, she said these tires were great! She was able to drive in neighborhoods with heavy snow, up and down hill, and she said the tires held traction when accelerating and braking. Do not have an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

You'll see 75,000 above and go huh? Well, that's because I bought one set, drove 40,000 miles on them, then purchased another set. I've driven my Camaro across the country from Washington, DC to Seattle, from DC into Canada, from DC to Maine, as well as DC to down south. From tackling the streets of Washington, DC, Boston, New York City, Chicago, Seattle,...  Read More

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

Tires have much better wet traction than the OE Goodyears. The stiffer side wall provides a more compliant ride. My family and I just ventured back from the Smoky Mountains and the tires tracked true and straight without any pull. This gives a much relax and stable drive on the interstate. Cornering on these tires gives you predictable confidence, but...  Read More

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

Moved from Firestone Firehawk {OEM] to this tire. The ride and control are awesome! Like riding a rail. Yes they were expensive, but the control is incredible. Control on wet surfaces are the same as on dry. Bought this tire due to the need for extensive winter driving in the Northeast and I have not been disappointed. Just a wonderful experience.Control...  Read More

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

Best tires I've owned. Went from Firestone wide ovals to these and like night and day. Car had the fe2 sport suspension and really made it a pleasure to drive. Most noticeable in the rain, so much better against hydroplaning.   Read More

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

The A/S 3s are a huge improvement to the last gen A/S 2. Improvements noted were dry/wet cornering stability, light snow traction, and steering feedback. For an all season tire, it did not disappoint in the last 2 winter storms we have had.3-5 inches of snow on side streets and 2-4 on the hwy with temps in the single digits. The tires made all the difference...  Read More

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

These tires replaced original equipment Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring at 70,000 miles. Dry road handling is very good, although not as quite as tight as I would like them, about on par with the Goodyears. They have a very smooth ride. I've had absolutely no sliding or hyroplaning on wet roads. I'm a little disappointed with the noise levels, they are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Had BFG AT/KO tires before and although mostly satisfied with all aspects except snow I wanted to try a different tire. I wanted BFG TA KO2 tires, but my size is not available until November. I needed tires now, after comprehensive research which really ends up confusing as there are as many one stars as there are five for most tires. Frankly these tires...  Read More

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

I put them on my daughter car. The tires are great. The ford focus is a light car it was'nt made for deep and heavy snow   Read More

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

I live in Chicago. I drive a 6 cylinder front-wheel drive pontiac. I drive the car very hard. I bought these tires after hours of research. I could not decide between a set of winter tires or good soft all season tires. I went with these because they are the highest rated all season tires on this website. I am very happy with them. I cannot say enough about...  Read More

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

Great all around tire for all sports cars. One word of caution, when the description says light snow, it should really read no snow. Bought these tires a month before a winter snow fall came through my home area. My car was unable to operate in the 3 inch that was left behind. I would recommend a set of snow tires if you expect to see any snow in your area.   Read More

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

Just bought these tires last week and now have 300 miles on them. Wow, why the -------- did I wait so long. Much, much improvement over the run-flats. First, they are quiet and I can finally hear some engine growl... never new it was there over the RFT tire noise. Second, jittery-ness in suspension is now gone. I have the M-sport adaptive suspension and was...  Read More

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

I replaced the OEM Pirelli Run Flat tires with these Michelin Pilots and have been very impressed with the benefits of the change.The Michelins generate less road noise and make the ride more compliant, most noticably over small ruts and bumps in the road surface. They are wearing very well, and I currently have 12,800 miles on them - they look about 30%...  Read More

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

Replaced the OEM tires(made in China w/treadwear=340)with these Yokohama Avid Ascend which interestingly are sourced from U.S.A. Very pleased with the tire's smooth quiet ride and good response to driver input. I changed tires for greater safety in today's traffic situations and road conditions. Yokohama Avid Ascend certainly measures up anddoes so at a...  Read More

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

This is a great tire... except that somehow it has a 500 treadwear rating, but wears faster than tires with 220 treadwear ratings. Now admittedly with regular rotations all four tires have worn perfectly equally, but a tire with that treadwear rating being bald after 20,000 miles?! Insantiy. It's just not worth the pricetag for what is admittedly a decent...  Read More

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

I have had several Town Cars. I have tried several Michelins, Hankooks and now these Pirellis. I liked the Hankook h727 better than the michelins but these pirellis blow the rest away. The speed rating for my car is a T but I got the V rated tires. Yesterday we had a good amount of snow here in New Jersey. The tires handled flawlessly on all surfaces in all...  Read More
