Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

OE summer tire on my Performance Pkg '15 Mustang GT 6sp. I've tried to find opportunities/conditions to justify Ford's selection of this tire, but after almost a year in a variety of temperatures and weather conditions I'm really looking forward to replacing the tires, even with plenty of tread left. This tire loses grip under too many conditions, even when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I replaced my Eagle F1's with theses tires, which I had on my WRX as original equipment. The F1's stuck like glue in the summer on a perfect day only. I live in OH and there's rarely a perfect day. The F1's in the morning when it was cold, slid like crazy and I could barely old the car in a straight line with the lightest of rain. I recommendd the Super...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Replaced the OEM installed Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires with only 13,000 miles on the clock and installed the new Michelin Pilot 4S tires. I've had prior experience with some Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires, as well as two sets of Michelin PSS tires on different cars, and Michelin knocked it out of the park again.Summary = Superb traction and handling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Initial Review, I will be reporting in 10 to 15k increments I hope. I just installed these coming from the Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring and its a night and day difference for the better.In comparison the Coopers get a 10 for noise because they are scary quiet. But they go away fast, don't do as well in the wet as claimed, are a bit choppy on imperfections, and...  Read More

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

I use this tire as a daily driving tire consisting of both highway and city driving, but I also use it for twice-monthly autocross. I can't imagine a better performance tire for daily driving. Naturally, there are better tires for track/autocross driving, but this tire provides incredible performance driving grip while being more affordable and having longer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PS91

I changed the stock Continental ContiSport tires on my A3 Sedan at around 2,000 miles since I was unhappy with the grip they had, the car would just wheelspin all the time, triggering traction control, and on turns the car would push excessively on corner entry. After deciding many different options looking at forums and friends' advice, I decided to go with...  Read More

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

After going last winter on my stock PSS tires (not the best idea I've had), I got a set of all seasons for the winter. The tires are staggered like my summers (225/245). Our one snow event this year was a week before the tires arrived, but I've had the tires in freezing temps, rain, and a paced event at Virginia International Raceway. The tires were better...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2

OUTSTANDING TIRES!!!! I can't say enough good things about them. I drive a combination of daily and track. I currently have almost 4K miles and 3.5 track days on the tires since mounting and these are SO MUCH BETTER than Super Sports. Not only have a I improved my track time by 1.5 seconds, these have much more life than the Super Sports that I have put on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

my comments may come across as crude 2 the faint of heart. so, i'll just say move on as i truly mean no harm. 4 those that wish 2 glean some useful info on a tire, don't waist your time reading comments on rubber with less than 7k miles - USELESS DRIBBLE! ok, so much 4 commentary how about the 06.i've had legacy dws on my lex gs 400 / 430 and ls 460 - loved...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiSportContact 5P

Tires are garbage, don't waste your money. The centers wear out long before the outer edges. Yes the tires were always inflated properly. 4/32s left after 7k miles. Planned on remounting these on a different set of rims for a little DE track duty but that didn't work out either as one of the tires' sidewalls split while the tire was being dismounted. As I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

I've been pleasantly surprised and very pleased with the performance of these tires. They are quiet, stable, track well and don't seem at all like a winter tire except when dealing with wet roads, snow, and ice. Most winter tires I've had over the years ( including high performance, speed rated winter tires) were pretty obviously winter tires, but these are...  Read More

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

Will not get 45k out of them. Car sees 60 miles round trip daily. Amazing tire, wont knock it at all! The grip was still VERY good at 3-5/32nds. Down very close to wear bars at 37K, ie 3/32 on out side, 2/32 in center. Used to driving Corvettes and exotics.Great tire if you want southern all season performance, or 90-95% of the Pilot Sport cups while getting...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

This review is for the MO rated version of this tire which I purchased for my Mercedes Benz E350 4Matic. As you would expect from the MO rating, these tires ride extremely well with low noise and high comfort levels. The car responds very well with these tires with very good steering feel and tracking. I have noticed no change in fuel consumption. There is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber Arctic LT

Great tires! Live in Colorado mountains. Constant changing weather and road conditions. Even in conditions of water on ice, a true test for any tire, no slippage. I drive in both 2 wheel and 4 wheel drive, depending upon time of day, road conditions, and traffic volume. Hunted off road with theses tires on truck in 8 inches of snow for three days. No issues,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I've been looking for a good All Season to replace my stock pirellis on my camaro, and I was mainly looking at the DWS for the snow performance because I like to enjoy my car year round and needed my car to atleast be drivable but these tires blew me away! I first got them a day before a snow storm so I really put them to the test and let met tell you that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

I bought a set of General Grabber HTS' about two months ago. They are exactly what I wanted on this vehicle -- a good value, great in rain and snow, and acceptable for dry-weather driving. I've already taken two trips of around 500 miles and each time had opportunities to run them in snow. On an all-wheel-drive SUV I had no problems in up to 6 or 8 inches of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z III

Okay, I decided to give a shot on this Sumitomo tires after reading reviews and watching TR comparison vid. Prior to these tires, I had Kumho Eczta and Falken Azenis. These were quite similar w/ Falken having a slightly performance edge. These are also about 40% more expensive than the Sumitomo. The bad news first: Although in the video comparison, TR says...  Read More

Best All-Season Tires for Subaru Outback (2017)

Over the past few years,  the best tires for the Subaru Outback have changed. The last time we discussed this topic in 2014, the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus was ranked number one in the Grand Touring All-Season category by our customers, and for good reason! With its smooth, quiet ride and long treadwear, the P7 All Season Plus remains an...  Read More
