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

Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+ Versus the New Pirelli Pzero Nero A/S Plus

Since its launch in early 2016, the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ has been a popular choice in the Ultra High Performance All-Season category. Its crisp steering response, generous wet and dry grip and excellent hydroplaning resistance makes it a top choice for drivers wanting sporty handling that bests many summer-only performance tires. During a pre-launch...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus

I have been a Michelin tire advocate in the past and these are the first OE Bridgestones I have kept on a vehicle. I have been extremely pleased with them. Over all performance catagories the tires, for the replacement cost, are better than Michelin tires. As a retired police officer I can attest to the Bridgestone tires performance in aggressive driving,...  Read More

What Tires Are on a Lexus 2017 RX350?

In the luxury midsize SUV market, the Lexus RX350 ranks as one of the best. It’s easy to see why thanks to a great looking interior, spacious room for the driver and passengers, good power and impressive standard features. With a 295-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine, the RX350’s tires need to be ready to handle that power and translate it into comfort and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Bought the 2012 Lexus ES 350 new. Its is common knowledge that the OEMs wear out fairly quickly. Relocated to south Florida and installed the Michelin Premiers - what a difference! I am a car guy but tires where near a major factor as don't change tires often so hard to really compare. The difference between the OEM Bridgestones to Michelins is night and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Ice Zero FR

We bought these tires for my wife's Lexus over other available winter tires. I was most impressed with the tread depth these tires have over the competition in the same size. I was able to drive home on completely dry roads with which these tires handled great (no noticeable difference over All Season just removed, the noise was less). Living in Rochester...  Read More

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

Changed from 18 wheels and Dunlop run flat tires to 16 wheels and non-run flats for a more compliant ride. This setup is more appropriate for the car with a tire that rides much smoother and quieter than before. The SC430 is not any sort of sports car so I don't know what Lexus was thinking with those 40 profile run flats. The car tracks well and feels more...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Anyone that drives a CR-V knows that it needs quiet tires to be a quiet vehicle. That said, I have tried three different brands on my CR-V over the years and the Michelin Defenders are by far the quietest of all of them. The Goodyear Assurance tires were awful. They rode horribly and had a constant moaning sound that drove me crazy. I then tried Yokohama...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Best all season tire I have ever had. After 45,414 miles I am nearly at the wear bars and on my way to buy another set of the same tires 205/55R16. I run at 38 psi to get even tire wear (at the Lexus recommended 32 psi tire edges wear too quickly). When new they grip ice covered roads as good as Continental Conti Extreme Contact tires (excellently) and this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I installed these on my 2014 Ford Explorer Sport and upgraded the size from 255/50/20 to 265/50/20. The original Hankook Optimo H426's were terrible tires. Road like rocks and were scary in the rain. SCARY. Not safe.I had these installed yesterday and immediately noticed how quiet they are. I didn't think my old tires were loud, but these are incredibly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

I just purchased this tire after the terrible experience of ContiProContact. The Contis were extremely noisy and a very uncomfortable ride. I literally hated driving. I was torn between the Conti Extreme Contacts, General Altimax and the Kumhos. My wife's Lexus has the ContiPureContacts and they are really a good tire. Very quiet and smooth. So I was torn on...  Read More

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

After reading dozens of reviews of this tire, by far the most accurate was posted on 4/5/2016 from the owner of a Lexus GS 350. That review is exactly the way I feel about my G37x sedan, which is a dynamically similar sports sedan. This tire lives up to the high marks for a smooth, quiet ride and great traction. It's an excellent choice for most cars, but...  Read More

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

At 16.500 miles it was time to replace the run-flat Dunlap tires. I really liked these tires except they didn't last long. I have switched to regular tires and bought an air pump, green slime and tire repair kit. I have not had a flat in 50 years and hope my luck continues. The only problem with these tires is the noise. They are very loud with the top down....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I have had these tires on my 2015 Lexus GS for the last 5500 miles. And I have to say I'm very impressed so far. The tires handle very well on dry roads, are quite, and instill quite a bit of confidence on the highway. This past week we have had quite a bit of rain in the Dallas area, giving me a chance to test the tires in wet and heavy rain conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

Replaced OEM Dunlop at 25K miles with Ecopia due to bad ride comfort and noise level.Switched to H-rated Ecopia and immediately noticed better and softer ride on bumpy road. Road noise has been significantly reduced as I can listen to radio with volume level 2 even at 70 MPH on highway. I dislike Lexus stiff suspension on RX since I bought the car new. The...  Read More

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

This is the third Lexus RX 350 I've owned, and have purchased several brands of tires for these vehicles. I've driven thousands of miles on some of the best tires you can purchase. BUT THESE TIRES ARE TOTALLY DIFFERENT!!! THEY ARE THE BEST TIRES I'VE EVER PURCHASED. From handling the vehicle at high speeds, to the QUIETNESS of the these tires when there is...  Read More

We've heard from many Hyundai Genesis Sedan owners that they're happy with their luxury car choice.

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

Very early review for a tire with less than a 1000 miles, so some evaluation catagories are not yet applicable, but my purpose writing this is twofold.First, the initial improvement in noise reduction, smoothness of ride and responsive handling over origional equipment Bridgestones on my small Lexus was immediate and stunning to say the least. This Cinturato...  Read More
