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

I bought a 2017 GTI Sport for one reason only: Carving up back roads and on/off ramps. I bought these tires to replace the OEM Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS 225-40R18I ones that my car came with. I found traction under acceleration to be lacking, and just wasn't as dazzled by the car as I expected to be. I got a flat early on, and took that opportunity to rush...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

What is your life worth?Bridgestone Blizzaks are a phenomenal snow/ice tire. These tires (mount 4 tires, never 2) can save your life...literally. Better traction, stopping, accident avoidance, reliability to get where your going in an emergency all add up to better safety. Simply the best thing you can do to protect your car, your life and those of others...  Read More

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

Had these on my wife's car for about 45,000 miles and all 4 would look like they would have another 40,000 on them easily if it had not been for an incompetent mechanic who messed up the alignment and trashed the outside shoulders on the front tires. Have been in deep snow, mud and off road on these tires and never had an issue. Very happy with these tires   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Spec

I'm driving a Miata with the factory R package and don't notice any more noise or a rougher ride from these tires than any other tires I've had on this car in the past 19 years. They have superior grip and much sharper turn in response than my previous tires, Toyo T1R (a very disappointing tire) and have better overall grip than my previous favorite tires on...  Read More

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

I drive an 03 Z06 Vette. It's my track car but it is street legal, I drive it to/from the track. It's modified for the track in terms of suspension, cooling, brakes etc. Drive train is stock. I do about 25-35 track days per season in the instructor groups. Tracks I drive are WGI, NJMP, LR, Pocono, SP, Palmer.A few years ago, I sold my dedicated race car had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Just got pre-owned 2015 BMW 640xi Gran Sport with 5,000 miles. Came with original Eagle run flat tires. These tires have an awful reputation and my previous experience with OEM Goodyear Eagle tires of all types has been very negative- poor wear, no mileage warranty and noisy. Did a lot of research and discovered the Bridgestone Drive Guard Grand Touring Run...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I've had my BMW 330 for 10 years and the only thing I don't love about it are its run-flat tires. It came with Bridgestone Turanza which were rough and noisy and lasted 30,000 miles. Then I had 2 sets of Continental Conti Pro, each lasted 40,000 miles and they were somewhat better than the Turanza. But I always hated the harshness and the way the run-flat...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Falken Azenis RT615K+

I come from a set of worn out Bridgestone Potenza RE11's. I bought my Miata to go autocrossing last year. I've done 7 events total now. These tires were the first mod this year. I have 2 autocross events on them currently, and I am VERY impressed. The first event was a novice school, put on by the local club. Being that this was a school, times werent...  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 Firestone Firehawk AS

These replaced the Bridgestone Ecopia tires I had on my Mazda 3. Overall this was a massive improvement. These tires are very quiet by comparison, and maybe the most quiet tires I've ever used. They really perform predictably on the road and provide excellent handling. The grip around corners is superior and I can make many turns now that would cause my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Riken Raptor VR

I bought these tires for the Spring/Summer months and instantly got 2-4 mpg back from my winter tires. The day I put these on my car I drove over a 1000 miles on a trip and half of it was in the rain. I had absolutely no issue at all with drifting lane to lane or even cornering hard.I tried a couple times to lose traction on quick turns and they stayed put....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 N-Spec

If you are looking for a performance winter tire. This is it. I've used normal winter tires on a Honda Civic before and i hated the handling and the noise and the grip in the rain and dry wasn't that great. With my performance package Mustang GT, I knew i wanted to maintain the sporty handling that the car had on the factory Pirelli P-Zero Maximum...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus

I have been a Michelin tire advocate in the past and these are the first OE Bridgestones I have kept on a vehicle. I have been extremely pleased with them. Over all performance catagories the tires, for the replacement cost, are better than Michelin tires. As a retired police officer I can attest to the Bridgestone tires performance in aggressive driving,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

BEST SUMMER TIRES EVER. Save yourself the time and just buy them. I've had Kumho, Sumitomo, Goodyear, Pirelli, Bridgestone and a lot of the Michelin's before the PS4. The PS4's are light years ahead. Unbelievable traction in all conditions, even at the limits. Yet somehow they are super quiet and the ride quality is amazing. Soft, supple even. I have them on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical

New car OE on 2017 Mazda6 Touring. I see there is a specific tread design for the Mazda6 according to TR. My first impression of the Mazda6--I've been car shopping for many months, have driven numerous others including Optima, Sonata, Elantra, Mazda3, etc., was, this Mazda6 is CONNECTED! Is it the tires or the tire size? The setup? I can't say.I can say that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus R-S4

Second year in auto-x. Bought these tires because re-71's were not available. My first impression is that this is a superior tire for autocross. I was somewhat concerned because I had read a review that said they squeal (I came from a Bridgestone Potenza 760, which does squeals a lot and not the best tire for autocross). I can report In 20 runs with these...  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

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

Previous tires were the OEM Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS - they were done at 20K. Decided to try the BFG tires. So far, so good. They ride a little bit softer, but corner much better, with excellent grip in the rain. Have not had a significant snowfall yet here in Pittsburgh, so I can't report on that yet. As far as noise, they seem ok to me, even with the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

THESE TIRES ARE USED IN PARK CITY UT IN A SUBDIVISION UP ON A MTN SIDE. OUR ROADS ARE SO STEEP AND SNOWY THAT THE COUNTY SENDS AROUND A FRONT END LOADER WITH CHAINS ON ALL FOUR WHEELS BEFORE THE SNOW PLOW COMES BY! TEN INCHES OF WET, SLICK SNOW, UNPLOWED AND I HAD NO TROUBLE MOVING, STOPPING OR STEERING AT ALL. THE FEDEX DELIVERY SUV WAS STUCK, AS WELL AS...  Read More
