Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

I had high hopes and I'm very disappointed.They are pretty good in light snow, I have not had the occasion to try on deep snow or ice. They are ok on dry road but they are DANGEROUS on wet road. I have had several close calls on wet roads because they won't break, lock and slide (I don't have ABS). I drive with Goodyear GT Eagle the rest of the year which...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

These are summer tires, replacing original Conti ProContact (42K mi). At half the price of Conti/Michelin, etc etc, I must say I am extremely pleased with their performance. I had also considered the BFG g-Force A/S but after talking to Bart at TireRack, he said that he felt the non-directional tread pattern enabled diagonal rotation, whereas the BFG would...  Read More

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

Currently have 7k miles on my RE-71R's. I haven't done any AutoX or serious racing, mainly highway pulls and some spirited driving. The tyres have been very good and have lasted a while. They look pretty much brand new despite having 7k miles on them. My main fear was treadwear but I can happily confirm that these tyres wil last a while if you don't do...  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 Bridgestone DriveGuard

An all around nice tire with a good compromise of durability and performance. An excellent all season tire, very adequate for the occasional winter annoyance. None the less, I bought Bridgestone snow tires for last winter.   Read More

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

We bought these tires for racing in autocross. we bought these tires based on the recommendation of one of the tire specialists. These tires are performing better then we had hoped they would. We have yet to break these tires loose while racing. These tires stick like glue!   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 Continental TrueContact

This is my 4th set of this tire and until they develop a better tire this is the best on the market. within my family I have recommended these tires and 13 vehicles will never look back at Goodyear or Bridgestone or Michelin tires. These tires will keep you feeling secure in even the most adverse driving conditions.   Read More

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 moved from the factory 205-40/17 tire size Bridgestone RE-050s to the Direzza ZII*-spec in 205-50/15 for both a reduction in unsprung weight and increased sidewall height to help combat the rough roads in Vermont while still maintaining the sharp handling of the Fiesta ST. Sadly I can say, that though the overall grip is quite comparable between the...  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 Ecopia EP600

I'm sorry there is only one tire alternative for the i3. I have had road hazard problems on both rear tires, however, (I know I'm in the minority) my front tires have turned over 35,000 and are at the 3/32 buy new tires point. I have read many comments of people wearing out tires very early on. I don't understand. But I do drive the vehicle non-aggressively....  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 Potenza RE-11

Flat out the best tire for the Boxster. No other Bridgestone tire even compares. I am the one who wrote multiple reviews on the S-04 Pole Pos and how disappointed I was. The S-04s are on the rear and I have the RE-11s on the front. I almost turned away from Bridgestone as a result of the poor performance of the S-04 but the RE-11 is so sharp in steering...  Read More
