Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Bought the PS4S to replace the PSS that was being phased out by Michelin. The PSS was already king of dry grip and handling and the PS4S improves marginally on that front. But where the PS4S takes it to the next level is wet grip and treadwear. After about an hour in the wet at national corvette museum motor sports park I could feel a difference. Especially...  Read More

A big thanks to Walt at Customer Support he did a wonderful job helping me with the right tire & wheel set. GREAT Customer Service !!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

When looking for tires to replace my stock run flats on my car I wanted to make sure they would handle well in the wet and dry since I would be pushing these tires on mountain roads. I ordered these tires because they were budget friendly and looked like they had great potential. The first time I drove on these tires I took my car out to the local twisty...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport

I bought my 2012 Honda Crv 5,5 years ago. I have 66,000 miles on it and have my original tires. Looking to buy the same in the next 2-3 months. Thank you, Bridgestone.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I got these to replace the stock Pirellis on my Mustang GT. After a couple of hundred miles, these tires GRIPPED. Using the on board accelerometer, my old best launch was about 0.76G at the track. With these tires, I was able to pull 0.93G aired down to around 24psi. On the road, grip was fantastic before I started modifying the car. Now, I can't get any...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

For the category it is in, UHP, it is an excellent tire! Steering is crisp and precise. Traction is great at getting the power to the ground having over 200HP in a FWD car. Under hard braking there is little to no tire slip. Mind you this is a fully track setup car that see's daily driving. These tires were my choice in longevity and performance. I would buy...  Read More

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 Continental CrossContact LX Sport

These are OEM tires on my ML350 BlueTec with 20in AMG rims. After 24,000 miles they are completely worthless in even and inch of snow/slush. Up to 10,000 miles they performed reasonably well in the snow with dramatic reduction in traction as the miles added up. I'm going to buy another set of rims and dedicated winter tires, I might get one more summer out...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk AS

I just had four Firestone Firehawk AS tires installed today. 245/45/20 size. Unfortunately, Tire Rack was out of stock, so I had to buy elsewhere. The tires are smooth and drive nice but I am a little disappointed in the noise they put out. They are a little loud. Nowhere near as loud as the Firehawk GT's they replaced, however. Hopefully, the tires will get...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Fuzion UHP Sport A/S

I bought a set of these for my Porsche 928 S4. While it is too early to give a conclusion on treadwear, I don't anticipate anything to heap praise about with a treadwear rating of less than 400 on the UHP tires. If anyone buys these expecting a long treadlife for daily driving, I would recommend you have your head examined and seek something higher than a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo Encounter HT

Was a little unsure about buying these tires due to the low price and my lack of knowledge of the brand. The Good Year Wrangler SRA's that came on the truck did great with no complaints and really no reason to change. The reviews on Tirerack.com were so great and the price so low I figured I would give them a try. I had the tires shipped to my home. When...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA31

OEM on my Kia Soul. Much better than the Nexen's on my friends Kia. 1st WI winter, they were decent. I think I can survive 1 more WI winter, then they will be questionable. I would not buy these again, but for OEM they are pretty darn good.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

Wow, I'm really happy with these. I've got these on a 2011 Ford F-150 4x4 SuperCrew and I'm impressed. These replaced the OEM tires that the truck came with. The ride is much better with these, smooth... A tiny bit noisier, but not an issue.They seem to be wearing really well. I've had to make a few long road trips now, long distance highway driving. No...  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 Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

I purchased the set in March 2016 and have done 4 autox for a total of about 25 runs. My review is strictly based on autox performance. Prior to this, I ran the BFG Rival (note the old rival) and ran a few events on a set of used Hankook RS3. Not that I need to tell you if you are an autox-er, the RE71-R is head and shoulder above faster than the other two...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-80

These Blizzaks are the third set I have owned for my SUV┬┐s. I like driving on the spirited side since I like buying sporty vehicles. My first set was for my 2010 Acura MDX. The traction on ice and snow was amazing. I ran these for 4 years without an issue. Lots of tread left when I sold them. Currently I am impressed with the performance of these tires on my...  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 Yokohama Geolandar H/T G95A

The only thing that saves this tire from being immediately replaced is my all wheel drive. I couldn't imagine this tire on a 2wd. It's terrible in the wet and snow and I have drivin through every kind of weather imaginable. In every vehicle You can think of. I am glad I didn't buy these as they are my OE tire on my vehicle.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A

The good points;Very good tires for feel and overall handing. They offer great feedback when near their limits. You'll hear them warning you before they being to break traction in aggressive cornering. They handle heavy Florida down pours very well and have not felt spooky at any time in the wet. They have broke traction a little when accelerating from a...  Read More

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

I replaced my worn Michelins with these G-Force Comp-2 A/S SL because of the good reviews I read on Tire Rack and other places. The reviews were enthusiastic and the price was right. What a nice surprise: These tires are much quieter in town and on the highway. They smooth out the firm ride of my 2009 X3. I have more confidence turning and braking with these...  Read More
