Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Still relatively new but noticeable differences in ride quality and steering responsiveness over the OEM summer tires. I used them for their first track day last week in combined wet/dry conditions and they were exceptional even in the standing water in some corners. I did manage to break them loose around a corner but that was more me than the tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Great tire and an improvement over the Pilot Super Sports. Same amazing tread life and dry performance, but improved wet characteristics. Previous tire was the Bridgestone RE-71's so the review reflects the performance delta between the two (probably unfair as the RE-71's last <10k). The PS 4s are the best balance between spirited daily driving, longevity,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Have run these about 1,000-1,500 miles since mounting them about a month ago. Exceptional tires. They replaced the daily a/s tires (Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric) I had on my car's 19-inch Cadiz wheels for the previous 40k miles. I also have a set of Pilot Super Sports for track. Far and away these tires are better so far than both of the others. Versus the...  Read More

Where's the Toyo R888? It's Being Replaced by the Toyo R888R in Most Sizes.

Ready for warm weather and track days, but wondering why you can't find the Racetrack & Autocross Only Toyo R888 in your size? Well, you might not be able to get the R888 in your size but you can probably get the newer improved R888R.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I recently received my Mercedes-AMG C43 order and it arrived with Continental ContiSportContact SSR tires. I'd already purchased Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires (non-run-flat) for the car and the dealer generously agreed to buy the Continental tires back from me. However, they couldn't get the car in to switch the tires for a couple of days, so I drove the car...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

First of all, the tread life of these tires is not very good. If you are buying these to drive on daily, you (other than just wasting them) are more or less wasting your money, they aren't really meant for that. I'm roughly 40% through the life of the tire after 3500 miles of combined city/highway, three track days and one autocross event. These are...  Read More

Whether you own a boat, jet skis, ATVs, race cars or dirt bikes, you probably own a trailer that you use to transport these vehicles.   While checking the condition of your trailer, be sure to take some time...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I was looking for an affordable set of tires for our Jetta. The Kumho was recommended by my mechanic and even though they were less than $300 a set I took a chance and ordered them. The results blew me away! Quiet, comfortable and excellent handling in extreme wet conditions! I drove home through a major rain storm and the car was stable, steady and on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I really like these tires. We have a lot of days where the temperatures are below freezing at night and warm in the afternoons, so I had to go to all weather tires. They don't track as well as switching between summer and winter tires, but these tires are a good compromise. I was wearing out my winter tires quickly when the weather got warm in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Great tire for on track and street, only tire I'll put on the 458.   Read More

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

Best all around tire that I have ever purchased. Great in normal and wet conditions and pretty good with snow. Nothing like snow tires, but comes closer than any other tire I have had. I average about 30k miles per year, so I am buying tires about every 3 years or less. The one thing I did notice is that that they tend to track the grooves in the roads where...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

With only a few thousand highway and city miles on these tires, i don't have a huge long term opinion on these tires. From what I've experienced so far, I'm not all that wowed. The tires don't have many drawbacks, if any, but surely don't exude any flavorful characteristics either.With regards to comfort, these tires are fairly quiet in almost...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical

New car OE on 2017 Mazda6 Touring. I see there is a specific tread design for the Mazda6 according to TR. My first impression of the Mazda6--I've been car shopping for many months, have driven numerous others including Optima, Sonata, Elantra, Mazda3, etc., was, this Mazda6 is CONNECTED! Is it the tires or the tire size? The setup? I can't say.I can say that...  Read More

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

Have had these on the car for a short time, but even so, am very satisfied with these tires. They run quiet and are very smooth and composed over bumps and railroad tracks. They handle heavy rain confidently without missing a beat. Very satisified so far and will provide a follow up review.   Read More

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

Well, after driving on all sorts of tires and vehicles for the last 51 years, simply, these are the BEST all around tire I have ever had. The first thing I noticed was the lack of noise, almost silent. Straight line tracking is exceptional, I found that I was not making many road corrections with the steering wheel. Cornering is also excellent with very easy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus Z214

Having recently graduated to Hoosier R7s from R-Comps (Toyo R888s) on my E36 BMW M3 at the track (and LOVE them) I wanted to up the ante on my hot rod Porsche as well. Not able to fit Hoosiers to my current car set up I looked for something similar which would fit the car and these were the only candidates. The Hankooks are in no way directly comparable to...  Read More

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

Replaced OEM Goodyear LS 2 and these are a significant improvement! Even with hard, spirited acceleration, they do not break loose or engage the traction control. Great grip in dry and they are quiet and smooth riding, even over railroad tracks. This smoother, quieter ride could be due to these being new 235 50 as opposed to the original 225 50's, however,...  Read More

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
