Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

Had the KR21s on a year. Bought these on price and the treadwear number. The wife put 42K on our new '08 Santa Fe in the first year and the factory Brigestones were junk (little tread remaining, max noise and no traction) by then. The KR 21s were a world apart! Smooth quiet ride, very good wet & dry traction, suprising winter traction too. Had NO PROBLEM...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

I installed these tires on my 98 Civic hatchback and having put less than 20 miles on them this is just an initial review. Compared to the no-name off brand tires on the vehicle before, these are a night and day difference. Road noise is greatly reduced and the vehicle is noticeably smoother riding over harsh bumps. One thing that does stand out is how much...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta XS

I have run these tires fir two seasons now and i have been pleased with their performance. Confidence inspiring through corners when dry and wet. They will hydroplane over standing water but its predictable and managable. I bought them for autoX but was too cheap to buy commuter tires as well so after two summers of 74miles to work and back each day they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

High 5 corvette owners. I own a 2005 c6 z51 corvette with auto transmission A-4. I changed the gear ratio to 3.42, callowway cold intake, 170 degree theromstat and complete 2007 Z06 exhaust from manifolds to npp mufflers.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec

I've been completely blown away by this tire and I rant and rave to friends about it. I'm using the largest size you can buy @ 275/35/18 and the traction.. oh lord the traction. I'm sure it's partly due to my car as well but compared to my stock tires these things are unbelievable. On an auto-x course you can really push the limits and I felt the tires in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric

Driving a 260whp Volvo, and these things stick, period. On dry pavement its difficult to break these lose unless I brake boost (auto tranny). wet pavement the will spin under acceleration but still a great wet tire, how do I know, I live near Seattle so at least 15,000mi were wet miles. They corner like a dream as well, and have pulled my car (3200lbs) with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I did a lot of research before buying this tire. It turned out to be an excellent choice. On snow and ice I always have the Auto 4 on no matter the tire so never had a slipping problem. The only time the tire was not up to the task was in deep, hard packed, drifted snow, but few tires are. They had 50,000 miles on them when I replaced them with Firestone...  Read More

Living in South Florida we get our fair share of rain and these are the best wet weather tire I have ever owned.

I've used the tires...  Read More
