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 General Grabber HTS

I have only had these tires on for a few months... but what a huge difference they have made in my old hot rod truck. The lower rolling resistance has increased the mileage Dramatically, and with a big block with high Horsepower, that is a welcome change.. They are much more responsive, and the ease of turning on a 47 year old truck with no Power steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender T+H

PHENOMENAL TIRE! PERIOD. I have bought many tires over the last 40 years and these tire are above and beyond anything I have ever had. These tires replaced Michelin Defenders which I thought were good except that they only lasted about 29,000 miles vs their 90,000 mile warranty. These tires are even better in fact far better. Good job Michelin engineers!...  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 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ ZP (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires outperform the Goodyear Eagles they replaced by a wide margin especially in ride quality and noise. The Goodyear's were excessively noisy and they rode like a solid rubber tire. The ride quality of the Michelin's belie the fact that they are run flat tires. If I had to list any area that the Goodyear's might be slightly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Rugged Trail T/A

The Goodrich Rugged Trail T/A LT245/75R17 121/118R was the original equipment tire on my Ford F-150. I replaced them with the same tire after 65k on the 1st set and 65k on the second set. I'm currently buying the same tire for my 3rd set of tires at 130k+ miles. They have good traction and good wear. Keep the truck aligned and the tires rotated and balanced...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival S 1.5

I bought these tires to complement a set of 15x9 rims for my Miata. I chose a staggered fitment with 225/45s in front and 245/40s out back. I went staggered because A) 245s would have rubbed in front and B) I wanted a bit extra grip in back to keep the back end from getting squirrely. I was not disappointed; these tires have some serious grip. On mountain...  Read More

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

I've driven over 10000 miles on these and they have held up very well the ride is comfortable and quiet. The traction is very good in all weather conditions. I would definitely buy another set.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TerrainContact A/T

great tire ford limited avalibility in this segment...very hard to fet a true all terrain tire in a 265 50 20 would buy again... ALL A+   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is my second set of these tires, They are better than advertised in wet conditions, they are very good in the dry with one exception I can still spin a tire off the line on acceleration (I'm sure the FWD torquey diesel and low 1st gear ratio DSG tranny contribute too). I drive hard and fast and have been very pleased with the tires and the VW ability to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I can't tell if the tire comfort is great for this particular application - it seems fine to me. You don't buy a Cayenne Turbo expecting it to be a quiet vehicle, but I've never noticed extra noise from the tires. Handling and acceleration are great as far as SUV standards go.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

After over 27000 miles, I'm very satisfied with these Michelin tires. At this point, I should be able to go another 4000-5000 miles on the front tires, and the rear tires should have another 20000 miles or more left on them. Sometimes they are a little noisy, depending on the road surface, but the traction can't be beat. Unless I change my mind, I'll buy...  Read More

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

After total dissatisfaction with continental USA I switched brands. I have Pirelli Sotozero III on OZ MSW wheels so the choice was easy. The tires came mounted and balanced in a matter of days ready to mount! Understanding that you will give up 5% of performance from UHP tires but get 100% wet traction is a must for our 1 car family. Road noise is...  Read More

Best Tires for Honda CR-V (Part One)

Over five generations, the Honda CR-V has grown from a boxy, small SUV when first introduced in 1997, to the mature and civilized mid-size crossover vehicle that it is today. As the vehicle has grown, so has it's tire and wheelsize. 15-inch wheels and tires were used on the first-generation, while new CR-Vs roll off of the assembly line on 17-inch or...  Read More

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

A definite improvement over the factory Pirellis that barely last 20,000 miles and are typically noisy and out of round. I bought these based on reviews on Tire Rack, and am very pleased so far. The car is much quieter, and for an all season tire, very grippy and responsive. If these come even close to the 45,000 mile treadwear warranty, I'll be extremely...  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

Truck Tires: Off-Road Tires and Mud Tires / Mudding Tires Versus All-Terrain Tires

If you have a truck or rugged SUV that you often drive off of the beaten path, then you should consider using tires that are more aggressive than standard Highway All-Season tires or Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tires. How much more aggressive do should you consider? That depends on how much off-road driving you'll be doing and how severe your...  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 Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Reading the review, I concluded this was the best bang for the buck for my daily driver. Handling performance under both wet and dry conditions is superb and it keeps you in contact with the feel of the road. The grip is excellent on twisting back roads out on the countryside. The only thing unexpected was the amount of road noise. I know they're all-season,...  Read More
