Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Bought a set of Primacy MXM4s in January, 2016 when they were discounted to under $100/tire. They live up to the performance moniker in dry conditions only; I would not consider these all-season, nor would I purchase them again (unless the Michelin warranty provided a free, or deeply discounted, set due to the poor treadwear).I have a fairly average driving...  Read More

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

I looked long and hard about 3-4 years ago for a new set of shoes for my 2010 Infinite M35X, and thought these looked like the best bang for the buck...and I have not been disappointed. They only allowed me to rate myself as spirited, but it was a lot closer to psychotic with delusions of grandeur that he's speed racer in his old man car before I started...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

Ive had this current set of tires on my car for only 23,000 miles or less. I am not a very aggressive driver and only put about 15 miles per day with the occasional highway road trip. within the past 6 weeks, Ive had 3 different tires blowout on me. all interior sidewall with exposed wire framing. Discount tire tells me, oh this is normal wear and tear BS....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I purchased these Pirada SpecX's for my 2003 Murano solely based on the reviews I read here. I bought this vehicle new and they came stocked with Goodyear Eagles. Ride and traction and wear was average. I replaced them with a set of Michelins from Costco Tire. Wear and traction again average. The ride, not so much. They turned my SE into the ride of a pickup...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

These tires are excellent. I generally run Blizzaks, but we were not planning to keep this car so I wanted something cheaper to get through the winter. These tires were about $150 less for the set 16 car tires, which is a pretty substantial discount. I can say after a season of good snowfall that these tires perform as well as Blizzaks and I will purchase...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

I went through the second set of these tires at 34,000. First set was about the same. They are rated at 55,000 miles and Michelin, after a lot of calls, will give me a discount on new tires. But they are hard to find and I know they won't last so avoid these despite the warranty.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

My 5th set of Blizzaks. Installed just in time for the early November subzero polar weather. I knew the road would be bad when I skated across the driveway and ended up on my -------. Made the executive decision to take the Mercedes with the new Blizzaks and I'm glad I did. Saw no less than five wrecked cars on the interstate as there was no sand or salt...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 01

This tire came standard on my WRX. I had originally planned to switch to an all-season tire right away, but decided to give these a try. Since we have very few winter weather events here, these have worked well all year. There have been a few times that I've taken an alternate vehicles to avoid cold, slippery roads, however, for the sake of safety. I've...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Best tires for summer I've ever had . Looking for more promotions/ discounts to use on all my vehicles.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Bought as All-Season tires since the OEMs were worn and unsafe in the current snow, but I don't want to change out for summer. I needed a tire that will support my car's acceleration, handling, and top speed while providing acceptable snow traction and treadlife value for the dollar. These are THE exact fit for the bill. Dry handling is more predictable near...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus

This was a great tire - for the 10K+ miles they lasted before the chunking started to occur (http://bit.ly/1asieNs) on the front two. Aside from that minor flaw, these tires worked great on a 3,800lb, '04 Volvo V70R 300HP AWD wagon. Now I realize the weight and handling of the car beats up front tires pretty good, but for spending almost a G on a set, I'd...  Read More

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

Tires were purchased to maintain the handling potential of the car. The tires are not smooth, that said, the suspension of the car contributes to the roughness of the ride. I am perfectly satisfied with the ride and expect such a ride with the car and the superior handling tires. I purchased the tires after they were discounted after a newer model was...  Read More

Great Grip at Great Pricing - Closeout Pricing on Hankook Ventus R-S3

Although Extreme Performance Summer tires have stepped up their game, the old stalwarts of the category still provide great dry grip for your fun car. Like all Extreme Performance Summer tires, the Hankook R-S3 emphasizes dry grip and steering response at the expense of wear, ride compliance and tread noise. It's a great tire for spirited drivers. The R-S3...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have had these tires now for about 2 months and replaced the Dunlop Sport Max RFT that came with the car and were showing too much wear for 15K miles. The truck is for the wife and baby so the Sport Max was a bit of overkill, but what a difference these tires have made. Quiet and smooth and stick like glue. We have been having our spring rains, toad...  Read More

What Does a Bubble in the Sidewall Mean?

Both tire and auto manufacturers recommend frequently checking your tires for signs of irregular wear or any other damage that could cause a dangerous tire failure. While signs of shallow cracking on the sidewall rubber or minor irregular wear are of concern, the presence of a bubble in the tire sidewall is a major safety concern that needs to be addressed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

These tires are way better than OEM factory set in almost every way possible. When new, within the first 1000 miles of purchase, I took a long road trip from AZ to WA and back. These tires performed very well on this 3000 mile road trip, on forest service roads, city roads, highways, interstates and at one point a rock quarry road. Since then, I've put on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Fuzion ZRi

I just had these tires installed, so far they are great. I haven't really had a chance to push the limits on them since, its still around 40 degrees and its a summer tire. The road noise is minimal, i would say the are just as quiet at the OEM Continental tires. They do have very stiff sidewalls which is nice, when it comes to steering input. If these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I initially purchaced 2 tires for the rear after the wife made an unepected trip into the ditch with only a dusting of snow. The discount tires I had replaced the oem ones with were sub-par when it came to snow and wet traction. With just the 2 tires on the rear, the traction and handling of my Trailblazer improved dramtically. Needless to say I was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

My first set of Blizzaks, personally, but not my first experience. My father always puts them on his vehicles when the snow hits.I have to drive a mountain pass (Johnsons Pass; Tooele County, Utah) and in the winter it can be downright treacherous! My co workers in their Civics, and other FWD cars could not make it up the pass to get home, and had to take a...  Read More
