Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I bought these tires since I needed a better grip. I am running over 369 lb/ft torque at the rear wheels(434 lb/ft crank) and needed something that will hold the power so I decided to go with 265 wide. Well those things have just insane amount of grip. When warm they just don't brake traction in first gear and my car even feels under-powered. They are very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

This tire came as a winter wheel/tire pkg i purchased from TireRack. We in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada have recently experience a strange start to the winter. with temperatures ranging from +15c to -25c, rain, snow, hail. These tires have performed great. Being a high powered RWD car, i haven't had any issues getting moving safely through light and deep snow....  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 Dunlop SP Sport 2050

I have these on my Mazdaspeed3. Originally when I purchased the car I had Kuhmo Ecsta SPT summer tires, which were not so good. When I was looking to buy a new set of tires, I had the option to buy a whole new set of 2013 Speed3 rims and OE Dunlop tires so I jumped at the opportunity.These are vastly superior to the Kuhmo's. I don't know why there are so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I replaced my OE Potenzas with these F1 all seasons. I got tired of having to swap wheels every winter and put on the Dunlop Winter Sports, so I'm trying all season tires. I put them on in April, so I haven't driven in snow yet, but on dry pavement and rain, the Eagle F1s perform as well as the stock Bridgestones. Cornering is awesome. The F1s handle the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Fortera HL Edition

OEM equipment on my 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited. Have the 20 wheels and tires. Had a mystery vibration in the steering wheel at 65 mph. Dealer balanced tires three times to no avail. Apparently there is an known issue with these tires. Manufacturer (jeep)replaced them(no charge to me)with Yokohama Prada Spec X. Vibration is gone. BTW, had these tires on my...  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 Affinity Touring

I put these on our minivan last fall before driving up to Sandusky from Pittsburgh. They ride nice and seem to handle well..On dry ground. We get snow and the van is parked. If the street is so much as white our van doesn't move. It's really quite pathetic.I just ordered a set of Firestone Winterforce's for my Forester, I don't really need them but they are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I live in mile hi steep mountain terrain. We had a heavy 18 snowfall with only minimal snow plowing done before I had to drive 'down the hill'. Decided this would be a great test to see how my new Altimax Arctic snow tires would preform so launched out without putting tire cables on, which I was sure I would need. Trees & power lines down everywhere making...  Read More

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

The Michelin Pilot AS3 is simply amazing in the wet and dry (cold or hot weather). I bought this in the summer and so far I've accumulated roughly 5000 miles on these. The steering feel is very responsive, you always know what the tires are doing, I could have sworn this feels very much like a high performance summer tire. In return, you could also feel some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

My main reason for selecting this tire is for its winter snow traction. Traveling from the Bay Area to the Tahoe area ski resorts is a yearly occurrence. The OEM tires had decent dry performance but had very little snow traction, even with 4 wheel drive. It was so bad, the car was sliding around on the highway with light snow covering. The new tires were ---...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A

These came as OEM tires on my 370z. They are great tires for grip and handling in the dry. There is a proper amount of steering feedback and you can tell what is going on with each individual wheel. It breaks traction less progressively on turns than desired but recovers quickly. It handled rain fairly decent. I ran these down to the cords so it was expected...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

I am on my third set of these 10 ply E load rated tires with a Chevy 3/4 ton duramax. I do alot of heavy towing, fifth wheel and trailering. This tire is exceptionally stable, durable, and as long as you rotate every 6000 miles or so, will last a long time. Great in snowy fields, can barely hear them on road, drive like a Caddy. I got over 60,000 out of the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone R265 5-Rib

Tire works well for me. I drive a heavy load in my truck daily. About 12,500 miles per year. They wear well. Would last longer probably if I took the time to rotate them.I had Mr. Tire on Defense Highway in Annapolis MD. install my tires. I have been there before with NOT Pleasurable Experiences. BUT, this time it was like Night and Day. The Manager Matt...  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 Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I care about traction more than tread wear, and these tires are it. There are no better tires in the snow, ice and wet, and they do well in warm dry weather as well. The trade off is tread wear, but I'm okay with that. They came as original equipment for the premium package of the Audi Avant, and at first I was hesitant to replace them, but they did so well...  Read More

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

I put these on my new wheels at only 1100 miles but the difference was amazing from what the factory had put on it. I have driven up and back on hwy1 going into 35 mph curves at 60 and it held like it was a rollercoaster the car did not drift or slide at all. As far as road noise they do transfer road noise you can definitely hear when there are changes in...  Read More

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

Truck has 230,000 miles, I have tried some tires. Rudy in TR customer service told me about the new tread design and I was willing to try it( thanks Rudy!!). These tires far surpass the older BFGoodrich design! They earned their mountain snow rating! We just had every kind of weather from dry to rain to warm to cold and icy and these bite! My confidence is...  Read More

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

Great tires! My high performance Camaro came with Pirelli P Zero from the factory, excellent tires, but don't last very long. After doing the research, I decided to get the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. After driving on them for 10,000 miles, I do not notice any decrease in traction, steering response, and cornering. The tires ride with comfort, low...  Read More

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

Hey Guys,I just wanted to share my experience with this amazing Michelin product. I own a modified 2014 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 which dyno-tuned at 413hp@407tq. Previously, I purchased Mickey Thompson Street Comp 255/40/19 & 295/35/19 tires about 4 months ago, an extreme summer performance tire. Well the tires were great if you are a road course/autocross...  Read More
