For many RS drivers there is no need to upgrade. The Michelin Pilot Super Sport is a great match for those looking for a balanced tire. It's got a crisp steering...  Read More

Putting Larger Wheels on Your Vehicle

Plus Sizing, the process of changing wheels and increasing the diameter, is a great way to enhance the look and performance of your vehicle. What is plus sizing and how does it work? This involves changing the tire and/or wheel size from the original size in a controlled manner so as to maintain certain critical dimensions. When creating a Plus Size¬†fitment,...  Read More

Must I Keep My Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Functional?

When shopping for new wheels and tires for your 2008 model-year or newer vehicle, you will have to address the tire pressure monitoring system. The National Highway Traffic Safety Agency (NHTSA) and a handful of states have made the option of running without sensors a little more limited. This can become complicated and should be addressed directly with a...  Read More

New Payment Option: Goodyear Credit Card

Also, we will continue accepting this method for online orders, but now there is another option! If you already have a Goodyear Credit Card, then you're in luck! You can now...  Read More

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

The first time I pushed the tire in corners it performed so well the safety limiter for the car (it starts to shut down the ignition if the car exceeds the preset tilt limit or higher G forces than the safety engineers programed in the computer) started to slow me down. I see that yellow warning light occasionally and laugh how well these tires perform. They...  Read More

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

This tire is awesome. You just know how special it is, from the moment you start driving...When you cross over any kind of painted surface in the road, you can tell just how sticky the tire is...it sounds like Velcro being ripped apart. I took a VERY SHARP highway exit ramp, at breathtaking speed, I thought I was going to be thrown out of the side window, a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

75% of my driving is highway (70+ mph), 20% city and 5% playing in the dirt and mud.I needed to get a new set before the most recent northeast Ohio winter and just like you, I did my research. I wanted a more aggressive looking tire on my truck that could handle handle winter and not kill my mpg. I wanted to give my review after I put 10,000 miles on them...  Read More

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

Used mostly for Autocross on set of BBS wheels. Great traction after first heat cycle. Little wear noted after five 25 minute track sessions. Very pleased to date   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I replaced a set of Conti ExtremeContact DWS with the Conti TrueContact tire. While happy with the ExtremeContact DWS they were a bit noisy and were beat up pretty bad from some very spirited driving during the 40,000 miles I had on them. They were also getting close to requiring replacement anyway. A sidewall bubble developed after hitting a curb so I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

With only a few hundred miles on these tires, there isn't much of a review to be written, but I feel obligated to tell you about my first impression. First, I must tell you what I replaced...GoodYear Wrangler Duratrac. I purchased a used set of 20 GMC wheels that had the Duratracs on them. They were worn about 50%. Those tires were terrible in my opinion....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

These tires are awesome. 95% of the time I'm on road, and they handle excellently. For such a large sidewall, at road pressure they still handle great (especially on a Jeep). Dry traction is superb, wet traction is very good, but is the only thing I think could improve a little. Even in snow and ice they are responsive and handle very well. I only have about...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KL21

I chose the 245/65/18 tire on a search for higher ground clearance / gas mileage and not cause any interference on my 2007 Saab 97x. What I found was that this tire performs well on the highway in Wisconsin winters, snow/slush and during heavy rains in the summer. These tires work well on this vehicle probably do to its 5000 lb. weight and all wheel drive. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Based on the Tire Rack tests and reviews, I knew this tire wasn't going to be as stiff and responsive as some of the others in it's category, but that was a trade-off I made (since MazdaSpeed 3 has a stiff suspension), and not disappointed. Ride is more comfortable. Turn in is a little vague (relative to this category), and some minor corrections are needed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

only use this for my weekend fun drives. for the price, these are the bomb. tires are a soft compound so steering response is not as responsive with slight wheel turns, but when you actually do some hairpin turns and pushing these tires on the autocross, they stick like --------. i had more expensive tires but after buying these, such a waste of money. i can...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These replaced the stock Dunlop Sport Maxx RT's. Instead of putting the new PSS's on the stock wheels, I had TireRack install these PSS's on Enkei TS9's with TPMS. These are now my summer set of wheels and tires. About 800 miles were initially covered for a road trip from Salem, OR to Ontario, OR and back. The roads were dry the entire trip, which meant...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (H- or V-Speed Rated)

So I replaced my Hankook 16 inch Run Flats that came standard on the car when I bought it in 2014 with these Goodyear All Seasons. What a huge difference these All Seasons are compared to the Run Flats. I will never buy another set of Run Flats again (I guess, other than if they come standard on a new Mini and I have no other option). The Run Flats have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Rosso

I have a 08 Mustang GT with only 12K miles on her. Its primarily used as a promotional/show car for my business, Westside Powder Coating, Romulus Michigan. I have done some modifications, one is replaced the factory 17 rims with 19 Ford Racing Track Pak rims. Theses tires 255/50/19 fit beautifully. They really fill up the wheel wells nicely. They replaced...  Read More

Fine Tune Your Jeep Cherokee Wheel Choice Based on Vehicle Color, Wheel Style and Overall Look

When Jeep reintroduced the Cherokee in 2014, they didn't go retro. They went bold. The current Cherokee has a pointed hood with sharp, angular body lines that make it nothing like the older XJ model. Polarizing as its design might be, the new Cherokee has been a smash hit. The good folks in Toledo made over 200,000 of them in 2015 alone. Although the design...  Read More
