Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I'm impressed with the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 even though I have only driven less than 500 miles. I agonized over the performance/cost trade-off with my previous replacement tire favorite, the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. The entire experience with Tire Rack was impressive - the customer service and the efficient transaction handling - plus setup for local...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I use these only during spring through fall, and put on four Blizzaks for the winter. With only 6500 miles so far I'm not sure I can accurately address the durability/tread life of the tires, but generally speaking I'm pleased with them. They seem to have plenty of grip in both wet and dry conditions though I tend to spin one wheel very slightly (I don't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I wanted a reliable set of winter tires, as soon as I had bought my rear wheel drive MB. I drive a lot, mostly highway, on I94 and I90 between Ontario and Minnesota, crossing Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin. I have to admit, these tires have performed beyond my expectations for winter tire experience on other brands in my prior cars. I have been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Ride, handling, and traction are all great. Tires are projecting nearly 100,000 miles. Only complaint is the uniformity, the tires are slightly out of round. Wheels are straight. The uniformity was disappointing as Michelin usually has excellent uniformity.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus

I have worn out two sets of these tires in 5 years, my 300 has 200,000 miles on it. I ran them thru all seasons in Wyoming, with a rear wheel drive sedan. 115 miles + per day 5 days a week, rain, sun, and snow. Good mileage impressive handling and ride, survived countless road objects and potholes at 80mph. yes I swear by them. only in last year when the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R

Well this is a quick update. I just fitted these tires on a brand new set of 17x9 RPF1 wheels to be used for spirited driving in canyons and on the track. I did a quick Sunday night shakedown of this new package and alignment, and thus far everything is golden. Alignment - Camber - Front -2.8L/-2.7R - Rear -2.4L/-2.2R Toe in +.06 Front / +.01 RearFTG Front -...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival S

We use these tires for autocross only with only a few commuter miles. We co-drive a 1999 Mazda Miata modified for prepared for competition with 225/45/15 Rival S tires mounted on 15 x 9 wheels. We have 111 competition runs on these tires now, with very little tread remaining on the inside and outside shoulders of the tires. We run a lot of negative camber...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

The Optima SX is a great car but one of its biggest drawbacks is harsh ride and road noise. Going from the stock Nexen tires to these Comp 2 tires was a surprising improvement on both fronts. Tire noise is close to half of what it was with the stock tires and ride comfort is better. The sidewalls extend just a bit further to protect the wheels from...  Read More

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

Let me start by stating that I have not autocrossed or tracked my car. I use my car purely for spirited canyon driving, but that was not an option to select.My first set was in oem ap2 sizing (215/245) on oem wheels. My previous two sets of tires were re-11a, and every tire before that was the oem re-050. I now have ~110k miles of driving on the car, with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone FR740

This tire was oem 215/45/17 on my new Corolla. I just performed the 5k rotation myself and wish to post my observations. I got this car to supplement a 2004 Corolla with 70 series tires as my comparison. The biggest change I noticed was ride quality . The 45 series is excellent and has no road noise that bothers me. The car is quiet at freeway speeds to...  Read More

Does your Jaguar F-TYPE lie parked in the garage during the winter months just begging to be driven? Even a weekend spin is not advisable with sticky summer tires during cold, wintry conditions.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Had these wheels for about 6 months now. I don't put too many miles on my personal car because I have a company car i get to drive most of the time. So far these tires have been amazing. Freeway noise is none intrusive, the handling in all the weather conditions have been great. I think the biggest aspect i have notices is these tires performance in wet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

I live in Mass, and we have some crazy weather throughout the year, especially during the winter months. I got these tires late Jan. 2016 and have more than 8,000 miles on them so far. Pretty much all of driving is during the week and on the highway. They are great in the snow from a few inches to over a foot, no problem in the rain either. There is a trail...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I sized down from my standard 18 wheels for this winter set and I am so glad I did. Ride comfort was incredibly improved with the 17 inch wheels plus the softer winter compound of this tire. These Michelins are so much quieter then my all season Pirelli P7s that I sort of wish I could drive them year-round. As I've experienced from every winter tire I've...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Very happy with these tires. They replaced Bridgestone Potenza RE 70's. The Bridgestones were very noisy, hard riding and wore out in under 20k miles of average driving.Within days of buying the DWS-06's, we drove from Connecticut to Florida and I was very happy I made the change before we left. I went from a car that sounded like it had a bad wheel bearing...  Read More
