Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

After reading countless reviews, looking into costs, and needing a wet dry tire, I chose these. I currently run a square 285 set up and the traction levels are high. I noticed a slight delay on turn in, but bumping up the pressure fixed that issue . It's most likely jumping from a 245 to a 285, and wheel weight increasing by 10lbs. I live in Tampa and see...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

The tires are a definite upgrade to the Super Sport. These tires maintain grip on a wide range of spirited driving in dry conditions. I am extremely happy with their performance. They have a respectable level of wet grip but that is expected given their level of performance in all other areas. Would highly recommend these tires to anyone looking for a tire...  Read More

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

Purchased these tires for autocross and road racing on my Abarth 500. Recommended by the Tirerack associate and many other forums/websites for multiple light sport cars of all kinds of power-trains. Mostly RWD Miatas, BRZs and mid engine Boxsters ,MR2s, FWD Civic SIs ,and tons of German sport cars.I am amazed how well these tires are. I have attended 3...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

These Michelin Premier tires are head and shoulders above the Bridgestone Turanza tires that were OE on my ES350. They are much quieter, the ride quality is a significant improvement over the B-stones and the noise level is noticeably lower. My Lexus is a great riding car and the addition of the Michelin Premier's make it ride,corner,brake and steer even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I purchased these tires to replace the Pirelli P Zero Nero run flats that were original equipment on the car.The first thing I noticed is that they are quieter and smoother riding than the Pirellis. Steering, handling and braking are first rate. If you are looking for an upgrade for your vehicle, this is the way to go. I haven't set off the stabilitrak yet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival S 1.5

I bought these tires to complement a set of 15x9 rims for my Miata. I chose a staggered fitment with 225/45s in front and 245/40s out back. I went staggered because A) 245s would have rubbed in front and B) I wanted a bit extra grip in back to keep the back end from getting squirrely. I was not disappointed; these tires have some serious grip. On mountain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

If you have a G37S, this is your tire. The original Bridgestones' had stiff sidewalls making for a nervous ride. Also, the car would tend to hunt around on broken or rain grooved pavement. A rather unpleasant experience.Tirerack's reviews convinced me to try a set of Pilot Super Sports and what a difference! Ride, steering, braking, compliance, noise, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Riken Raptor ZR

Another Florida autocrosser here. I purchased these for daily driver use and also for autocross as I build up my skill level. So far I have averaged 21 runs per tire before rotating front to back. Compared to 8 runs on my all season tires. There is still some sidewall tread left, I just wanted to rotate before wearing it out completely. After the second...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Spec

I been using this tire with a 9.5 wide wheel as the stock 9 wheels have no good tires for an open track day. I only use this tire for HPDE events and getting to the track. I have mixed feeling about it. Its not very high grip tire my mostly stock GT can break them lose with a sharp hit of WOT. If driven with some care it will provide everything Tire Rack...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Falken Azenis RT615K+

I've only driven 100 miles so far on these tires. I barely broke-in the tires, then took it out for an autocross the same day.On the autocross, these tires were absolutely phenomenal. After one run, the tires heated up to proper operating temperature. I was able to rotate the car with the throttle and brake with extreme precision. These are things I was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Falken Azenis RT615K+

I bought these as a track/autocross tire. For me, the deal on these tires was quite a bit chepaer than the Bridgestone RE71R or the Dunlop Star Spec, and being as it's the new version of a tire that Chump and Lemons cars run, I figured I would give up a little bit of grip and competitiveness in autocross/track days in exchange for durability for my budget as...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

Mind you, Tirerack did not give me a selection for back, windy roads, with high speeds; so I went with the auto cross driving selection. First impressions:Impressed. My little Corolla has never felt more comfortable and steady before. The handling is noticeably better than it was; therefore, I'm taking turns harder and at higher speeds, with more confidence....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Have run these about 1,000-1,500 miles since mounting them about a month ago. Exceptional tires. They replaced the daily a/s tires (Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric) I had on my car's 19-inch Cadiz wheels for the previous 40k miles. I also have a set of Pilot Super Sports for track. Far and away these tires are better so far than both of the others. Versus the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I drive the car daily and the streets where I drive are not very good. The tires handle the bad pot holes and street conditions very well. The handling qualities of the tire feel really good. They respond very well to steering input in both wet and dry conditions. I was surprised on how comfortable they are, the ride quality is great. Very quiet tires so far...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I'm a spirited driver and previously came out of the Michelin Pilot Super Sports, which was a fantastic performing tire in itself, but the most noticeable change with the new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S is an improvement in the ride quality and harshness from the tire when hitting impacts in the road and the dry handling responsiveness and cornering stability....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

Installed on a 2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i AWD. In upstate NY/ Northern NY we have true all season weather, and I think these tires handle it very well, especially for the price! Had no balancing issues after the first mount and balance. The only thing I have slightly noticed is when it's cold outside (sub-freezing to freezing temps) the tire gets a slight flat...  Read More

New Wheels for 2017 Subaru BRZ with Performance Pack Brembo Brakes

I was hoping to convince Tire Rack management to cover the cost swapping my 2015 Subaru BRZ for a 2017 Subaru BRZ with the Performance Pack. This would give us quick access for a car to test fit and I get the newest BRZ. Of course they didn't go for that, but we have updated our website with compatible wheels for the 2017 Subaru BRZ with Performance Pack...  Read More
