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

After some bad luck years ago with Pirellis I gave it one more chance...and I'm glad I did. These tires are absolutely wonderful. From New York pothole streets to Turnpike driving, these tires are just right. For what they are built for,they handle excellent in high speed driving and cornering. (yes, ultra high performance will corner a little better but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII

Purchased specifically for the track. broke them in on the road. took 200 miles to get the tires to grip consistently. On the track and the road they provide incredible turn in, traction, and are predictable at cornering limits... love them they have changed the car in a very positive way. Size is a bit of overkill maybe should have stayed with 225s but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Duravis M700

I have a 2009 Silverado 2500 HD VORTEC. I have been very satisfied with these tires and was going to replace them with the same tire. After checking on Tire Rack, I am surprised there is so much negative info about the tire. I do some off road driving with my pickup and have only gotten stuck once - to me the ultimate test. I suspect any vehicle might have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

Absolutely amazing tire for snow! Unsurpassed dependability. I live in Wisconsin in the country where roads are not plowed well if at all sometimes, I fear no snow with these tires and have pushed my car to the limit in snow, I'm an aggressive/ offensive driver and have tried to send this car around with these and it just sticks! Drove through 10 in of snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I have never written a review on tires before but felt that these certainly deserve it! My Goodyear RS-A's were down to the wear bars at 30k miles, I wanted something that would give me slightly better ride and since I live in the Midwest some traction in snow. I loved the performance of the RS-A's but truth be told the ride of the Infiniti leaves a little...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These replaced Pilot Sports (not even PS2) and they are absolutely a world apart. These tires clearly match the car's capabilities. In all ways they are better than the previous Pilot Sports: traction (unreal), responsiveness, straight line (very little tramlining), feedback, traction (worth mentioning twice). They are a little quieter and softer feeling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I needed a set of tires in a pinch and ended up going with these. I had no prior experience with Hankook, so I had no idea what to expect. I need a good all season tire that can get me through a couple inches of snow, as well as summertime rain storms, and I wanted something that will wear well. We've had two snow storms since the tires were mounted and I've...  Read More

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

I purchased these tires to replace the stock Dunlop sp2050 summer tires on my Mazdaspeed3. The michelins not only have higher overall grip but ride more smoothly and quietly. They still look phenomenal after 10k miles, with the lowest tire still measuring over 8/32nds with lots of spirited driving. I turn off traction control and spin them at least weekly.I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I drive a 2010 VW CC sport and I've had this tire on my car for 28,000 miles. I bought the VW CC because I wanted a car with a nice balance between sportiness and luxury. I love everything about this tire except for one. This tire feels very precise. The tracking is spot on and there is no wandering. The grip is amazing in both the wet and dry. There is no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I purchased a set of these tires in hopes of a cross over tire that could handle daily driving and track use. In short: amazing tires! These are some of the most precise and predictable tires I have used, which makes them perfect for spirited driving on curvy canyon roads and occasional ventures to the track. I live in southern California and don't get much...  Read More

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

I do track/autocross racing with my car, and I wanted decent daily tires to have fun with on the streets.I live in FL and I was worried about how they would stand up to all the downpours and rain we get here, I was not disappointed one bit! Wet traction and hydroplane resistance is phenomenal! I was literally doing 40mph slaloms in a thunderstorm and they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport

I purchased a set of these tires for my '88 Toyota Supra in staggered sizes: 235/45R17 Front, 255/40R17 Rear My car is summer only, and used as a fun car and not a daily driver. I wanted a set of performance tires that weren't so expensive that I would feel bad doing a track day, auto-x, or a smoky burnout. These tires fill that gap quite well.There's no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force R1

A great track compound with excellent steering response. Acceptable autocross tire with durability. Great overall. If were to autocross only confident R 1S would be a winner.   Read More

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

Very good tire traction choice in all weather. We have steep grades with hard cornering up and down Ozark Hills in rain excellent, snow good at slower speeds and if you crawl on ice they will generally track. Rubber is softer so great traction vs. just not the longest lasting tire but worth it for safety and best value. Price is good so we run em and replace...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Excellent tire. Switched from Michelin to Continental Extreme Contact DW. Much quieter and better ride than Michelin yet very responsive for performance driving. Perfect tire for daily driver (comfort) and occasional track day. Tread holds up well. Surprisingly good in the rain. Highly recommended.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Fuzion Touring (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Quick note about the way I drive. I live on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. While I don't race at speed on this road I do take the turns fast enough to need a good tire for the job. Below is what I have noticed about the performance of these tires.After 8000 miles of mostly summer driving, I find the Fuzion tires to be worth the money. They hold the road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival

I use these tires mostly on the track, with a little street driving shuttling back and forth between track and hotel and running errands. I only run them when it is dry, I use different tires in the wet. My car is set up with coilovers, camber plates, and a proper alignment. I think these tires work great. Once they have a little heat in them they are very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus

I replaced a full set of Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S's with these vastly superior tires after only 24,000 miles on those tires, when they developed bubbles in the sidewalls. I have nothing detrimental to say regarding the Pilot Sport A/S Pluses. They performed well in dry, wet, tropical downpour and winter Nor'easter conditions. In the very few times I...  Read More

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

I drive a Mazdaspeed3 on H&R coilovers and an aftermarket rear swaybar to lessen understeer. Treadwear is average for a performance tire. I'm on track to hit the wear bars at 15k. Dry traction is great and the sidewalls are stiff enough that you can throw the car into a turn hard and not roll the sidewalls. Lane changes are a just a flick of the steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

Excellent tire in all regards-road holding, performance on very wet roads, quiet and smoothe. In terms of steering responsiveness the Pirelli Scorpion is a little better, but the Pirelli is not as quiet and is much more expensive. The Prada is the best value for money for an SUV tire and provides shockingly good performance across a broad range of road...  Read More
