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

This is compared to Conti Extreme Contact DWS. After just about half treadlife (the S not worn yet) developed two sidewall bulges on both front tires due to crazy potholes here in the NYC tristate area. The contis were getting a bit noisy anyway - but all season traction could not compare. The Audi quattro with contis performed better in snow then wife's LR3...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

Tire has good traction but has a noise level which is extremely loud.Never had tires that produced this amount of noise.I wish they put in the noise cancelling system which Audi required from Pirelli. Review from TireRack video indicated they were very quiet. Would not have bought these if I knew about the sound issue.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

My 2014 Audi A4 came with Continental ContiSportContact 3 and they lasted for only a year (mainly because of my driving style). Then I replaced all 4 tires with 255/35ZR-19 CONTINENTAL EXTREMECONTACT DWS 06 XL and even after 15000+ miles of extreme driving, they are holding good. I absolutely love them and would recommend them to people who like to...  Read More

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

After a lot of thought and looking at reviews I decided to replace the tires I had on my Audi it came with Goodyear's. The price for those tires was like 198.00. I looked around for a good high performance summer tire and these BF Goodrich tires looked like they fit the bill. The only thing that worried me was they said that under 50 mph there was road noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I live near Buffalo NY. We get a few snow storms each year, and the roads get extremely slippery and icy. Its only a few days each year, but you don't want to get in to an accident on one of those days.My wife bought a set of these True Contact tires a year and a half ago and as we approach the end of the second winter with them I am absolutely amazed at how...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

I purchased a set of these for my eleven year old Audi. Over the years I've run a variety of tires from max performance summer to all season ultra high performance, and comfort was usually last on my list. As I've matured with the car, comfort has been a higher priority than flat out performance. When refreshing the car recently I chose these tires matted to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

I have had several types of winter snow tires on my Audi's over the years. I shopped around, read many reviews and took a chance on these tires. My driving style is spirited like I posted so I take that into consideration for any tire I own. I took a chance and purchased the Pirelli Sottozero tires hoping they would have decent dry road manners and at least...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I average 25K miles per set of tires on my Audi. My first set were OE Goodyear and the second set were Michelin. Both sets were All Season. The Goodyear tires were okay but the tread wear was terrible. The Michelins were extremely noisy and with over 20K miles the traction in snow was awful. For the third set of tires, I decided to try Continental Extreme...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I drive a 2012 Audi S4 and the tires given to me from the dealership I originally bought the car from were Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position All Seasons. Those tires were very noisy while driving had decent grip in dry and wet conditions but were AWFUL in the snow. I repeat AWFUL in the snow one slight tap on the brakes in light snow and you were skidding...  Read More

(GTI with Performance Pkg-6sp manual) Initial Review 2500mi Tires purchased to replace OEM All Season Hankook H Rated VENTUS S1 NOBLE2. (Planning to purchase Goodyear PSS summer tires in the spring.)This has been a challenging winter in Chicago area with significant snow, ice and very low temperatures.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

We are into our third winter with Michelin's on our relatively low mileage Audi S4. The tires have been fine--better than previously owned Dunlops and Continentals (for other cars). My only concern with the Michelins is traction in curves. I've noticed that they are a bit slippery in a snow covered, off- camber turn that we go through frequently. On the...  Read More

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

Drove these tires on my audi through the winter and late fall. Never disappointed with them and has surely saved my car from some sketchy slides. Only complaint would be that in a non-isolated car, road noise will be intrusive when tires are cold and broken in. No real scarifice in dry performance with the tread either.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

I drive from Portland to the SF Bay area every winter. I have come across hazardous driving conditions almost every year, with ODOT frequently stopping all traffic requiring chains in order to drive through the various mountain passes. This is the first year I decided to use a dedicated set of winter tires, as I previously thought that all-seasons with my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

With only 13,000 miles on my original set of Dunlop's ( factory) and the need to replace already, I decided to put my money on another brand that I trusted from past experience. While the Dunlop's may have looked a bit sportier, (Michelin's look a bit more utilitarian) the difference in ride and handling is unsurpassed. I feel like I have a whole new car for...  Read More

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

At long last, I've found my tire: an ultra high performance all-season tire that optimizes the performance of Audi's Quattro AWD on trips to the mountains, without numbing the car's handling and steering response on the dry roads that dominate daily driving here in LA. I've only had the Michelins a couple weeks, but immediately took them on a 1,000 mile road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

I bought the Continental WinterContact tires mounted on 17 Axis Modle Five gunmetal wheels from Tire Rack as seasonal replacements that I can swap in my garage. The wheels look better than my stock Audi S3 18 wheels. I mounted them three weeks ago and have already driven in three snow storms in Portland, Oregon and Washington. I'm shocked at how well they...  Read More

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

First off, I am no tire expert. Second, I have only driven these tires for 800 miles. Third, I am not a professional driver, I have never tracked a car, and I have never had any track/racing lessons. I live in New York City and do most of my driving on the weekends getting out of the city to either eastern Long Island or upstate New York. I seldom drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I have had a set of Altimax's on every car I have owned (15 in past 2 years). I drive very fast no matter the road conditions and these tires have never let me down. I once drove my Audi A6 in snow that came over the hood (50' long snow drift), and I was able to drive right through it without a problem. All of my friends now run them and most leave them on...  Read More
