Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Bought these as replacements for the OEM Kumhos that came with my car... The Kumhos were ok as long as it wasn't too wet out. They were horrible in the snow... but these Continental PureContacts were very highly rated and that turned out to be true.This is a fantastic tire - great traction in the rain and light snow... and quiet as well. These are a bargain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Best all around tire that I have ever purchased. Great in normal and wet conditions and pretty good with snow. Nothing like snow tires, but comes closer than any other tire I have had. I average about 30k miles per year, so I am buying tires about every 3 years or less. The one thing I did notice is that that they tend to track the grooves in the roads where...  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 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 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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Riken Raptor ZR

My OE Michelins were almost bald when I took the car out of winter storage. I needed something cheap and quick and these fit the bill. I read the reviews and was surprised by the number of positive experiences. I have to agree that these are great tires, I'd definitely buy them again. I don't know about treadlife yet, but I'm not too concerned about it. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I drive a 5,000 lb 4.6L supercharged Mercury Marauder mostly in the Tampa Bay area. We have the best road surfaces here for recreational driving. I drive roughly 50 per day, every day and these tires wear perfectly. The car has a straight axle in the rear so I frequently rotate the tires for best wear. I love the ride quality and most importantly, 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

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

So I'm curious if other owners experience what I just did on these tires. Overall, I love the PS A/S 3's. They have great ride, feel and control. Problem is, I only got 11,000 miles on the rears as the center treads wore down to 2mm tread depth remaining.Since I do not carry a spare, and run-flats are like driving plywood tires, I elected to replace these...  Read More

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

I drive for UBER and after researching tires and shopping around I chose this tire based on and existing comparing test available from TireRack. I put on about 3000 miles a month on these tires (27,000 total since I bought them in March) but I service the car every 5K miles and make sure tires are rotated. Its an excellent tire, quiet, handles well,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

On my third set of these tires and all were on the 2013 and 2016 Ford C-Max Hybrid. I've experienced non of the negative aspects described by some other reviewers but these tires are on the car only in Spring, Summer, and Fall. In winter I use snow tires as these are not suited to snow and ice. I've never felt unsafe driving at high speeds on the interstate...  Read More

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

I drive my car pretty hard through the canyons but also cruise through the city and usually on the weekends I take it to the local autox events. These tires are AMAZING, replaced my stock dunlops and these are night and day. Grip is excellent in the dry or in the wet it doesn't matter what you throw at them. Dry weather they just grip and go amazing Road and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2

OUTSTANDING TIRES!!!! I can't say enough good things about them. I drive a combination of daily and track. I currently have almost 4K miles and 3.5 track days on the tires since mounting and these are SO MUCH BETTER than Super Sports. Not only have a I improved my track time by 1.5 seconds, these have much more life than the Super Sports that I have put on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

Bought 4 Kuhmo tires for spouse's Accord and was pleasantly surprised how good they are performing (Ecsta PA 31) so I went back for more Kuhmo's for my daughter's Chevy Cruze. Installed set of 4 Kuhmo Solas TA-71's for her 2014 Chevy Cruze 2LT. Amazing to hear and feel the difference from the OEM Continental ProContacts to the Kuhmo's. Tires feel solid and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

My main tire purchase focus was comfort, road noise and dry traction. I reviewed technical and consumer ratings for several tire options including original equipment Eagle RSA and Michelin Pilot AS 3+ / Primacy MxM4tires and the Pirelli Conturato All Season +. In the end, I selected the Pirellis and I am very happy so far. One tire dealer said I didn't need...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

There is a lot to like about this tire, but unfortunately, that is outweighed by the tires' failures. The Pirellis are VERY LOUD (road noise is about double over the OEM Continentals that came with the car) and they offer a harsh ride. I'm guessing the sidewalls are thicker than the OEM Continental 4X4s. In some aspects, the car responds better during sudden...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Being from NJ, I drove down the Garden State Pkwy during a torrential rain storm and not once I felt unsecured driving on these tires, I could not believe it would not give me any sign of hydroplaning any speed I pushed on (55m/h+) while ALL the cars on front of me had their flashing light on, I was cruising along with no problem at all, the grip was...  Read More
