Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

225/50/16 Installed on r32 Skyline GTR wheels. 16x8. No limited slip differential yet. No turbo. Riding on Powertrix coilovers. 9kg/mm front. 7kg/mm rear. Great tires! A bit heavier but Just solid feeling, stable through corners. Strong sidewall; hard to tell when tires are flat.Dry traction is great. Wet traction is actually pretty descent especially when...  Read More

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

These tires replace the prior generation Michelin A/S 3's that I had on the car. One of the great features is the 45K mile warranty -- which I used to get into these tires. After 21K miles, the prior set was down to 3/32 in front and 4/32 in rear. They had gotten noisy, harsh, and obviously past their expected traction sweet-spot. So these new A/S 3+'s are a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I was absolutely blown away by these tires on my 05 BMW 325i (which is a rear wheel drive car). I drove through snow and spotty ice with complete confidence as I could hear the tires gripping the snow and ice on what would typically be a white knuckle driving trip. The ultimate test was in a dumping of 12 inches which the plows eventually got off the roads...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

I spent a month on the Tire Rack website for my new to me Tahoe. It already had Bridgestone tires on it and I bought this vehicle from a friend. No complaints from him on the last set. Boy did I make a great decision at this point. Even thought they are just slightly noisy, they have performed better than expected. I made it through winter with no issues in...  Read More

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

When I bought my Volvo used, it had been sitting on the lot since December and had a new set of Bridgestone Blizzaks on. Because I bought the car at the beginning of this summer though, I purchased a new tire/wheel package from Tire Rack and set the winter tires/wheels aside for later use. I chose these g-Force COMP-2 A/S tires based on the Tire Rack ratings...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

I wanted the 18 wheels on my Challenger and bought a SXT. Replaced the 235/55/18 with these Dunlop Signature HP 255/55/18. The original were touring tires and had a good ride. These wider ultra high performance Dunlops have turned my Challenger into a Mini Scat -------- Cat. They handle much better and only weigh in at 2 extra pounds. Plus the wider tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

These came mounted as OEM for my new 2015 Odyssey, and although they are very quiet, responsive, great in the rain and handle well, they wore out very fast. I rotated them every 5,000 miles so the wear was even throughout but after 18 months of ownership and 24,000 miles on them they were worn down to the wear bars. I also use a set of winter tires/wheels...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Purchased these tires a few days ago and had them installed by Tire Rack themselves at their South Bend location. These tires replaced a set of Michelin Defenders with 4/32nds tread left, and my review will be comparing these two. Compared to the Defender, grip and braking is vastly improved. These tires (the Premier A/S) just don't lose grip, regardless of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I ordered subsize wheels (16X6.5 KOSEI K4R LT GREY) and 225/70R-16 MICHELIN PREMIER LTX tires. They were delivered, mounted and balanced, to my home. I wanted to improve the ride on my 2008 CRV with lighter wheels and the smoothest riding tire possible. Each one weighed eighteen (18) pounds less than the Honda wheel/Goodyear tire it replaced. I am pleased to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is my second set of Continental Tires and this set is better than the OEM Continental Tires. In between I had a set of Michelin Primacy tires which I replaced unnecessarily as it turned out for another reason. I consider these to be nearly equal to the Primacys with the Primacy's having the edge in ride and tracking, almost like riding on rails.But here...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

My 2002 911 Carrera C2 does spirited daily driver duty as well as a few PCA autocross events each year. I have the factory 18 wheel option. These tires replaced the Hankook Ventus K112 that lasted 13,137 in similar use. After the fifth run in yesterday's autocross I noticed a thin white line of tire cord exposed on the Contis rear driver's side tire at the...  Read More

Tires and Wheels for 2017 FIAT 124 Spyder

Start with the ND Miata chassis, sprinkle in some retro Italian style, pop in a 1.4 liter turbocharged Multiair engine and you've got the 2017 FIAT 124 Spyder! With Italian styling and reliability, FIAT has created the perfect summer roadster. Want to add a little more Italian styling to the vehicle? Well, that's easy. Just add a set of wheels from O.Z....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

Our new Odyssey Elite purchased in January 2015 came with these tires. During both winters (end of 2015, 2015/16) these tires were removed and replaced with snow tires. So there are 15,000 miles on these tires roughly. One pair is down to 4/32 inch and the other pair is at 7/32 inch. We are now getting serious vibration at highway speeds, indicating the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is my second set of these tires in seven years. They are awesome. I still had plenty of tread life left in the front but the back tires were worn down so I opted for a complete set. You cannot get a better set of tires. I do drive aggressively at times and these tires hold true. They grip the road like summer tires in warm weather and maintain traction...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Just got them and I can tell they are wider then my stock wheels and they are. They don't seam any louder then the stocks and I love the deep treads. Skip was great at placing my order.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I recently replaced the stock Good Year Eagle Supercar performance tires. When I changed to the Continentals, I found out that my wheels were stacked backwards! Some idiot had probably rotated the tires without paying attention to the staggered sizes. My front tires were 255/45/20 and rears were 245/45/20! Those tires lasted about 24,000 miles with fairly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Original tires were BFG Trail TA which were absolute junk. I replaced them with Bridgestone AT Revo's which are an amazing tire for this truck. I could go through snow and ice without having to use four-wheel-drive whereas the BFG's I had to use for four wheel drive in the same conditions. The only drawback with the AT Revo's is I could barely get 30,000...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Cargo G26

The first set of tires were factory installed on this Sprinter 15 wheels and lasted a little over 100K with no additional balancing or rotation. I finally fixed the front right camber problem and now my mileage and steering is very nice. I expect these new tires to go over 110K; maybe 115K. Keep track of tire pressure for the season, front bearings in good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

This is the OEM tire on new Z51 and Z06 Corvettes (except for the Z07 package with the Cup tires). It's a solid tire for a daily driver -- no issues. What amazed me was how well the tire performed during a couple track days. Get a little heat into the tires, and they stick as well as Toyo R888's, which are a dedicated track tire I've used many times over the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

Incredible tire. I bought my first Ram 1500 back in 2011 - a 4x4 Crew Cab Hemi powered Big Horn. It came with hokey 20 wheels with chromed wheel covers (What the heck?) and Goodyear tires. Horrible combination for gravel. I had two right side blowouts within two months of purchase (strong possibility that the tires had been damaged in the centers while...  Read More
