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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Corsa System

I have had 6,000 miles on both front and rear with these tires including 5 track days, about 3 hours each day of track time. I am replacing the rear only. The front have a lot of miles left. I have tried Michelin and Conti on Porsche and this is the best. I have also tracked twice at Sebring in the rain. And while there was not standing water as they clear...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Bought this tire to improve cornering while racing in the Big Bend Open Road Race. The OEM Pirelli P Zero Neros were occasionally scary in this regard.WOW. Super Sports exhibited amazing lateral traction, while showing slightly less tracking on center. Slightly harsher ride, noisier, but it is now obvious that the tire outperforms the suspension. More shock...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S001

The rented i8 was new as were the S001 tires. The driving conditions were actually different from what TireRack offered as choices as I mainly drive back roads, not highways and very little city. The S001 were quiet, comfortable, tracked well, responsive and surprisingly aggressive when cornering at 8/10s. Didn't go further due to the car being new, rented...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

On my second set of these tires and I love them!! I haven't found a better tire for spirited summer driving. They stick like glue in wet or dry conditions, are quiet and smooth running, provide great stopping power and I've never had a problem with aquaplaning even in very heavy rain. Had the opportunity to drive the Barber Motorsports track outside...  Read More

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

All statements are compared to stock tires, in summer driving conditions. The stock tires were pretty worn when they were replaced with these, so this review might be just a tad skewed. That said, these tires are simply amazing! They have SO MUCH MORE GRIP over the stock tires. The miata used to chirp 2nd gear surprisingly easy, and with these tire, I fear...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 3

I have a Focus ST with a full stage 3 engine package, suspension package and upgraded brakes. I belong to the local ST club and we do spirited mountain runs, track days and autocross. Since this car is also my DD I was going to go with the F1's but due to a mistake by my local tire store I ended up with these (long story). I have to say that these tires are...  Read More

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

Initial review shortly after purchase. After experiencing the smooth, quiet ride on my wife's new Bridgestone Serenity tires, I decided to retire my previous set of half worn Goodyear Tripletreads due to noise and harsh ride quality. Based on reviews here and my priority for smooth, quiet ride I chose the Pirelli P7 AS plus. My initial impression is that I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hoosier A7

I have run many track tires and by far these hoosier A7s are the stickiest most predictable compound ever. I run the 275/35/15 on a 2200lb, 215 front wheel horsepower supercharged Focus (yes,a Ford Focus) on all 4 corners and first time out set the Super Unlimited track record (1:48.7 seconds) at a 14 turn,2.3 mile road course (Whiskey Hill Raceway in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hoosier R7

So R7s are my first step up from R888s, Advans, Pilot Sport Cups and Pirelli Corsa (on newer Porsches) and other like R comps through 10 years of track experience. I replaced worn out R888 245/45/17's at 4 corners of my trusty old track prepared '98 M3 - first thing of note, the tires are substantially wider in sectional width than like sized other brands of...  Read More
