Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I was only seeking Bridgestone (JP) or Micheline (FR), but as the French competitor was more expensive and were not made in France, I chose BS made in Japan (I grew up in Yokohama, Japan but Yokohama tires didn't seem to match either BS or MI). I rev my 3.2L VTEC motor very often and drive hard.There were two more expensive BS summer tires with not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Riken Raptor ZR

These tires are a STUPID GOOD DEAL. BUY THEM. I came from a set of Cooper RS3-S tires, which were preceded by some Dunlop A/S, and these are night and day better than the Dunlops and still a big step above the Coopers.I drive the fairly rough streets of Chicago along with occasional interstate trips through the midwest. They tolerate bumps better than the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 01 A/S

These tires are overpriced garbage. Starting off in the rain is a complete joke. The car relies heavily on the ASR and ESP systems to keep it in check even with normal driving. It causes the car to understeer very easily and braking is abysmal. Do NOT buy these at all. Save your money get some Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 or Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+...  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

Had the OEM Goodyears and put 50,000 on them.they were ok.then got a flat and decided to replace them. Went onto tire rack website and found a great deal on the dunlops..outstanding value cuz they were on a close out special sale.needless to say I got another flat tire on one of the new dunlops and the warranty process was unbelievably easy. Point is I work...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Falken Azenis RT615K+

I have bought 4 sets of Falken [215] and [615] These are fine dry weather traffic tires, and good dry track tires. They lose some traction in the dry if overheated, but rebound adequately when cool again. After 10 - 20? heat cycles the tread gets harder. They are manageable in rain when new, but approach slicks when worn near the tread wear indicators.At...  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 Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

This is my second set of these tires on 2 different cars. The first was an AWD Volvo wagon and they were fantastic in all weather. This is my second set this time on a nearly new Mazda 6. The Mazda 6 comes with hard riding noisy Dunlop tires. At 18000 miles I hit some road debris and damaged 2 beyond repair. I insist on 4 matching tires so my choices were to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D

I put these on my new 2016 Impreza (16x7 Moda rims) and so far they have been excellent in the couple of storms we've had in Denver. I've driven them out in the Summit county mountains over completely snow covered passes and they performed perfectly without hesitation. I was mainly concerned with noise and comfort and these perform as well if not better in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

Finally got a chance to try them in the snow and they did great. Much better ride than the original pirellis and they're half the price of the Michelin pilots. I'm thrilled with every aspect of their performance and will definitely buy again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Just returned from an S2000 event at The Tail of the Dragon . These tires are fantastic! Supremely confidence building. Completely predictable and superbly responsive. These replaced Coopers, which were awful and Dunlop Star Specs before that which were fantastic from a performance standpoint but noisy and hard riding. We drive about 16 hours each way to get...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek SJ6

I live in the hills of western MA, where we get quite a bit of snow and ice. So I bought these Dunlop Grandtrek SJ6's in P205/70R16 mounted on plain steel 16 wheels for my Crosstrek for winter. They are just a tad taller and narrower than the stock P225/55R17 Yokohamas. No rubbing issues at all, and in the snow, my crosstrek is unstoppable. They are really...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Spec

This is the 6th set of Star Spec's we have run on the Honda Civic. They are the best tire for the road racing we do in the Lemons circuit. Will definitely buy again, as long as the car holds up.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 Plus (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I bought these based on the testing results and reviews published on TireRack.com after getting only 20,000 miles out of the Dunlop SP31 A/S that the factory had installed. I was interested in a low rolling resistance tire that handled reasonable well, was safe, wouldn't break the bank, and would last a long time. These tires have fared well on those...  Read More

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

I bought these tires in November to replace some worn out goodyear rs-a that came on the car when I bought it. I have owned several different uhpas tires, including Dunlop (can't remember which ones), Falken 912, Falken 512,etc. These are by far the best I've driven. They're quieter than I expected. More comfortable by far than the goodyears. Better at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Have had two sets of Pilot Super Sports on my E90 and have been very pleased. The dry grip is tremendous, the wet grip is very good, and they even perform reasonably well when it gets cold (but no snow). I have a dedicated set of winter tires so these are on the car from April to November. I've gotten three solid summers out of them and they still have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Best tires I've ever owned and I've had a wide variety of performance tires on various cars from Nitto, Conti's, Bridgestone's, Pirelli's, and Dunlop's. These tires replaced the stock Bridgestone tires which were average at best. I put these tires on the 370Z 3 days prior to driving to Tail of the Dragon and other various roads in the Smokey Mountains. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I replaced my OEM Dunlop SP Sport 5000 tires at 22,000 miles on the Mazda 6 GT with these. I use them for commuting to work and in the winter I plan to run dedicated winter tires. So far this summer these have been a great deal quieter and smoother than the OE tires, and I am very happy with the ride quality. The professional installation at the dealer on a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

This set lasted 15,000 miles of tire screeching, canyon crushing fury. There's no option for aggressive driving but that's what I do. I recently switched to dunlop dz102's and miss these. I should have stuck with potenza's, totally worth the 10$ difference per tire.They're also great for daily use and harsh weather. Definitely going back to these next time I...  Read More
