THese tires are awesome! A good blend of performance and daily driving tires. It feels very stable and planted (I run 245/275 staggered).

These are noisy only because the Z is notorious for bad tire feathering due to toe alignment. So when my toe is out of alignment I hear the tire groaning on the freeway. It's a good and bad thing because it let me know to get an alignment to put the spec back. I also flip the tires at around 15K when the tires were worn down on the inside. Though I have 20k on them now the tires look like they have 25% of life left on the rears and roughly 40% of life in the front. I would definitely recommend this tire but at this point I want to try out other tires so I will be picking up a set of Continentals to compare them with the S.Drives.

Over the years, these are the best all-around V-rated tires for the WRX I have used in terms of performance and comfort. Cornering in both dry/wet conditions are superior to similar model tires. Road noise is less than other brands. The only disappointment I have is the tread life. For a tire rated at 560, They are almost due for replacement at less than 20,000 miles. In this regard, these are no better than the stock, and other Z- W- rated tires.

 

Great Extreme Performance Summer Tires

Thursday, August 1, 2013 by Cy Chowattukunnel

Ranking the top three quarterback in the NFL is tough. Is Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning or Tom Brady the best? Answers may vary across the country, but even neutral observers will be hard pressed to say who's the best.

That's how I felt after finishing our widely anticipated Extreme Performance Summer test. They're all great across the board and it's pretty hard to declare a clear number one.

BF Goodrich g-Force Rival
BFGoodrich g-Force

Dunlop Direzza Z2

Yokohama Advan Neova AD08 R

AD08 R


The BFGoodrich g-Force Rival, Dunlop Direzza ZII and Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08 R were the top three tires and all provided crisp, immediate and linear steering response that really performed well through the five-cone slalom section of our test. Compared to these three, the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11A's steering response wasn't quite as crisp. Our opinions varied, however I like the predictability of both the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival and Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08 R.

Our test writer had the difficult task of sorting through subjective assessments and data to anoint a winner. Our official results show the g-Force Rival taking first, the Dunlop Direzza ZII in second and Yokohama's AD08 R finishing third. Amongst those three, it's a photo finish when it comes to overall dry lap times as .22 seconds separated them.

If the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival isn't made in your vehicle's size, the Dunlop Direzza ZII and Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08 R are both more than capable. The RE-11A is a worthy competitor that could use a little more dry traction, but overall it's a great Extreme Performance Sumer tire.

Initial Review, 6,000 Miles on Tires
April 11, 2013

Purchased the Continental ProContact EcoPlus the Fall of 2012 after much research at Tire Rack and Consumer Reports. Could have gotten a few thousand more miles out of the OE Yokohama AVID S33D but winter (rain) was coming. Hated the S33's as they did nothing well except help get good gas mileage and was only going to get 40,000 miles out of them. Immediately the EcoPlus were quieter, smoother, and with great wet grip but the mileage dropped from 52mpg to 47 or 48 and I was disappointed. I knew winter might be a factor and old worn down tires roll easier than new tires but I was still surprised. Now that Spring has arrived and the tires have 6K on them my mileage is back up. Just returned from a 451 mile trip to Santa Rosa and Fort Ross and the trip meter is showing 54.3mpg. That includes freeway, urban, and coastal driving. I could not be happier. Air pressures are at the correct settings for the Prius, 35 front, 33 rear. I don't think there is much advantage in higher pressures compared with the disadvantages; harsh ride, less contact patch, increased braking distance, wandering on the highway, and wearing out the center of the tread. I used to be the manager of a busy tire store and from the tire manufactures seminars I learned that hard over-inflated tires are more susceptible to punctures. A tire that is rock hard will puncture much more easily than one that has a little give to it. Imagine a balloon that is very full versus one that is not so full. The full one pops much more easily. Go with the car manufactures recommendation. They have worked with the tire manufactures to give you the best tire pressures for your vehicle in regard to safety, longevity, handling, comfort, and overall performance. The engineers for the cars and the tires know better than you. I love my Prius and my almost new but broken-in EcoPlus tires. These are at the top of my list when I need to buy new tires for my Subaru Baja.

A pretty decent tire in most respects, but with 7/32 tread left, snow performance was rather poor. If you don't care about snow performance, then the AVID TRZ would be a good choice. Otherwise, forget about traction in winter unless the tires are brand new.

Test Results: Which New Extreme Performance Summer Tire is the Best?

Wednesday, July 17, 2013 by Ben Rooney

This year, enthusiasts are treated to an impressive new crop of Extreme Performance Summer tires. One of the most publicized new releases has been the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival. The Dunlop Direzza ZII, replacing the well-liked Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec, is another hot new entry into the category.

Slightly less publicized, but no less worthy of attention are the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11A and Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08 R. Yokohama and Bridgestone have been two of the class leaders and are answering the new challengers with upgraded models for this summer.

All of us here were eager to take these new tires out for a comparison. Driving them on the street was a useful test of what it would be like to use them on an everyday car. Taking them on and off the entry and exit ramps gave us a chance to get a hint of what their performance capabilities would be. All four tires gave excellent steering response and handling on the road, though each exhibited its own personality.

On the track, we had the chance to push these tires to their limits in both wet and dry conditions. Each one found slightly different areas to shine, whether it be wet or dry traction, ultimate lateral grip, responsive steering or confidence-inspiring stability.

Each tire could find a niche depending on the type of performance that's desired. To see a detailed report of how these tires stacked up, read "Testing Extreme Performance Summer Tires: The Boys of Summer Are Here" and watch the test video below.

Initial Review, 45,000 Miles on Tires
April 24, 2013

I've worn out two or three sets of the predecessor of this tire (Turanza Serenity) and after having gone through numerous other tire brands Michelins, Yokohamas, Goodyears, have to say that this tire is the best of those by a significant margin. These tires offer very good cornering grip... amazing actually. Great wet and dry traction and decent traction in snow and ice. Where they really shine is ride quality, comfort and noise level.

Bear in mind that I rate this tire as what it is... a Grand Touring Tire. It won't compete against special purpose tires but neither will they match this tire for this intended use. Unless you can use the last 10% to 15% of the performance that high performance tires offer you will be FAR, FAR happier with a tire such as this. The difference in comfort and combined performance will serve most drivers better the majority of the time. (As a footnote... I own and drive two Trans Ams, two Corvettes, a Grand Prix GXP, and other assorted cars). I have run high / ultra-high performance tires on those cars and unless I'm pushing the edge of the envelope, these tires perform more than adequately.... and they are FAR more comfortable over potholes, expansion joints and they don't drone you to death with tread noise.

One BIG side benefit not usually thought about is that these tires give me 45K miles +/- of wear and I replace them before they get down to the wear bars. So... while I'm wearing out HP and Ultra-HP tires at 20-25K miles I'm only at the halfway point of having to replace these. So... they save a lot of money up front and again over the far greater lifetime.

I love these tires and will be ordering my next set in the next week.

Good luck in your choices... but if I might make one suggestion it would be this. Look very carefully at what you NEED in a tire for the majority of your driving... and don't overestimate your need for that final 10% of performance. Most people never even get close to using that final 10%.

I bought these as a budget-level replacement for a set of Yokohama S-drives. They look aggressive, but have much less dry traction than the s-drives. If you just want a tire for looks and want to save some money they are ok, but I would not consider them a high performance tire. They do seem to work well in the rain.

 

Great Chevrolet Silverado Tires

Friday, April 26, 2013 by Steve Huffman

"Like a Rock." Chevy's full-size pickup keeps on trucking. The truck has evolved through the years, but one thing remains the same: dependability. Loyal owners hold on to their truck for many years, even through multiple sets of tires. Is it time to look for new tires for your Silverado?

If you're in the market for a new set, It's hard to go wrong with Michelin. That's why the Michelin LTX M/S2 is my favorite Highway All-Season tire for the Silverado. Besides its excellent ride qualities, including low noise and a comfortable ride, the LTX M/S2 has great all-season traction. The tire is also offered with a dependable 70,000-mile treadlife warranty.

Are you looking for a more aggressive tire? Take a look at the On-/Off-Road All-Terrain Firestone Destination A/T. This tire has been the top-rated option in the category for many years. The Destination A/T looks good while providing great off-road traction. It is tied or at the top of several performance ratings in the category, including:

  • Hydroplaning resistance
  • Wet traction
  • Cornering stability
  • Dry traction
  • Steering response
  • Ride comfort
  • Noise comfort

One of the best value options for your Silverado is the Yokohama Geolandar H/T-S G051. It provides a combination of comfort, handling and year-round traction, even in light snow. With over 28 million miles reported, the tire continues to stay in the the top ten of our Tire Survey Results.

This is an initial first impression review. Going from stock tires to these i have noticed a much quieter and softer ride which made my two trips to the office much better than my old loud tires.
Sidewalls i've found are MUCH softer than the OEM Yokohama's, which unfortunately makes cornering a little questionable. Even going down the highway, shake the wheel a little back and forth, you can feel the car floating around. Interesting how i didn't find any mention of the soft sidewalls here, but one i searched for that specific issue found a lot of forums with this complaint. Will post a followup review after i can test the performance in all conditions.

Update to previous 4,000 mile review. A phenomenal tire, and I can see none rated better that I would buy. Exceptional in dry and wet conditions, even heavy rain. Good in light to deep snow, but fair in icy conditions. Have maybe 5-10,000 miles of tread left now that I've put on 50,000. Quiet, smooth, what we all would expect a good tire to be.

Interestingly, I work in construction. My previous Continental Cross Contacts which I loved, had a number of flats from picking up nails, etc. None with this tire, which is either coincidence, or signs of better tire composition, which I believe it is. Continental has none in this size, so I will buy this tire again.

This winter, I looked at the tread and had concerns about winter driving on worn tread. But, decided to stick it out and tires performed SURPRISINGLY well.

My Toyota V8 all wheel drive limited has the best of everything, and these tires meet my expectations. Mileage in summer averages 18.4, and less in winter due to gas reformulation.

Highly recommended for those who appreciate quality, safety and consistency. But, if you live where ice and snow abound all winter, you may want to consider winter tires, but these are more than able to take on CT winters. Best to you all.

 

Warmer Weather is Coming - Time for a New Ultra High Performance All-Season Tire

Thursday, March 21, 2013 by Doc Horvath

With the snow melting in most of the country, driving enthusiasts are looking forward to a spring and summer of high performance driving fun. For those on a budget, there's a great selection of Ultra High Performance All-Season tires, including the Pirelli P Zero Nero All Season. The tire is currently ranked sixth in our Tire Survey Results.

Our extensive Real World Road Ride and test track have always separated the contenders from the pretenders. A couple years ago we tested the Pirelli against the Dunlop SP Sport Signature, Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 and Yokohama AVID ENVigor with the P Zero Nero All Season delivering the quickest and most direct-feeling steering of the group. The Yokohama AVID ENVigor and Dunlop SP Sport Signature followed, with Sumitomo's HTR A/S P01 right behind. All three options exhibited an excellent direct steering feel. Overall noise levels for all four tires were similar, with all producing some amount of tread pattern hum. The AVID ENVigor generated a small ringing tone when it encountered sharp impacts on the highway, and the HTR A/S P01 produced a little more tread noise than the rest.

On the track in dry conditions, the Pirelli P Zero Nero All Season had the quickest overall lap time with its very quick steering response and good overall grip. Dunlop's SP Sport Signature followed with plenty of cornering traction and similar predictable handling. The Yokohama and Sumitomo repeated their standings as before. In the wet, the SP Sport Signature was fastest, thanks to its responsive steering and good ultimate grip, especially under braking.

If you're in the market for new Ultra High Performance All-Season tires, read "Finding the 'Ultra' in Ultra High Performance All-Season Tires" before making your selection.

Great set of tires. Replaced OEM Yokohama on my Mitsu that only gave my 35K. Now I'm at 125K and I still have a lot of tread left - I think at least another 10-20K. That is fantastic value for a set of tires that performed really well in snow (Chicago roads) as well as rain.Cant say a lot about noise, since they are as much or slightly less noisy than my Yokohama's. Installed at Costco, and rotated every 5-6K miles. Overall, extremely happy with my purchase and will definitely recommend it.

 

The Return of the King? Introducing the Extreme Performance Summer BFGoodrich g-Force Rival

Thursday, March 14, 2013 by Cy Chowattukunnel

Recently, we received our first batch of Extreme Performance Summer BFGoodrich g-Force Rival tires. The first shipment from BFGoodrich's Tuscaloosa, Alabama plant consisted of the 225/45R17 and 245/40R18 sizes, with 13 additional sizes to come. Unfortunately, it's too cold here at our Indiana headquarters to test the tire, however based on current data, it looks like this BFGoodrich tire will rise to the top.

BFGoodrich's internal testing and their launch comparison indicate mission accomplished. The g-Force Rival excels when driven side-by-side with traditional Extreme Performance Summer leaders.

Our test drivers were particularly impressed with the g-Force Rival's combination of consistent, extreme grip with a high degree of predictability. Instead of "peaky" grip levels which leave the driver wondering what their tire and car are doing, BFGoodrich has endowed the Rival with more progressive grip levels. This allows for better control because the driver has no doubt what's happening with his/her car and tires.

The NOLA Motorsports Park launch test featured some good competitors, but how will the g-Force Rival do against the newest rivals in its class? Dunlop has launched the new Direzza ZII. Bridgestone's rolling out the new Potenza RE-11A. Yokohama has the ADVAN Neova AD08. Who's the king of that group? With all due apologies to Dennis Green, we won't crown it now. We'll crown the champ in early June after completing our comprehensive in-house test.

My commute is 86 miles each way so 172 miles each day and around 60,000 miles a year.
Avid EnVigor is great on wet road. My other tires used to lose traction every time you start from a stop. this tires surprised me by not losing tractions. light snow even medium snow is fine .
the tire make my toyota sienna 09/10 van handle like a car
this tires is really live up to its name .high performance all season tires

My only complaint is the road noise which is higher than other tires i'm used to.
This is my second set of Avid EnVigor. i'm planning to try out a different set of tires. just for the sake of trying. i have change to a new set of tires every year any way
the treadlife is 60,000 miles max 55,000 to be safe. which for me is 1 year worth of driving. and i rotate the tires every 20,000miles.
if you need a High Performance All Season . get The Avid EnVigor.
remember that they have to put a softer compound to make the tire grip and stick to the road better thus the shorter tread life. and a bit noisier because of the aggressive tire pattern

This is the first time I have ever purchased a tire "twice" in a row from the same MFG. This S drive tires are the best tire I have found yet for a value added tire in the performance line of any MFG. tire on the market for the price. The first set of S drive tires went 33,000 miles and I am a sprited driver. This same car I have had 3 other MFG. performance tires on and was only able to get between 15,000 to 23,000 miles of service out of them. That is why i have put a second set of these on this same car again. My son have choosen to try two other brands of tires on the same car as mine and they still do not get the mileage ( around 20,000). If this car last thru these tires I will force myself to try a different brand. To date overall on five different vechiles I have used Yokohama tires of different ratings and feel that Yokohama tires are hard to beat for the value.

Get yourself a pair pronto!! Bought these tires on sale from Firestone for 83.00/tire to replace the horrible Yokohamas. Couple of days after I purchased these tires, a mini blizzard came through MN and these tires delivered excellent driving stability, accelerated control from dead stop, no slipping on green light. These tires are supple in cold weather, unlike bricks (Yokohamas)I had before. In addition, the precisions provided continuous traction in medium snow fall (3-4 in). Excellent traction on wet roads as well. Have not tested in freezing rain, but I am sure they'll perform great for the non-aggressive driver.
