Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

These are summer tires, replacing original Conti ProContact (42K mi). At half the price of Conti/Michelin, etc etc, I must say I am extremely pleased with their performance. I had also considered the BFG g-Force A/S but after talking to Bart at TireRack, he said that he felt the non-directional tread pattern enabled diagonal rotation, whereas the BFG would...  Read More

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

This is compared to Conti Extreme Contact DWS. After just about half treadlife (the S not worn yet) developed two sidewall bulges on both front tires due to crazy potholes here in the NYC tristate area. The contis were getting a bit noisy anyway - but all season traction could not compare. The Audi quattro with contis performed better in snow then wife's LR3...  Read More

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

I¿ve never been a fan of BFG tires, but these had really good reviews so I decided to give them a spin. They¿re not only surefooted in wet and dry weather, but also provide a level of stability and control I¿ve only had with Michelins. Ex: I can now zip around a particular interstate onramp at 60 mph with confidence, whereas the original tires would¿ve been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Amazing tires. Basically the same amount of dry grip my previous PSS had, but with better wet grip/hydroplaning resistance and also much quieter/smoother! I also read that the threadwear is improved too. I think the benchmark in ultra high performance summer tires has definitely gotten a worthy successor!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

The tires are a definite upgrade to the Super Sport. These tires maintain grip on a wide range of spirited driving in dry conditions. I am extremely happy with their performance. They have a respectable level of wet grip but that is expected given their level of performance in all other areas. Would highly recommend these tires to anyone looking for a tire...  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 Michelin Defender LTX M/S

Used for a work vehicle. I drive VERY spirited and high speeds at times - sometimes at long distances at VERY high speeds. I feel confident when driving spiritedly, due to the performance of these tires. In addition to the spirited driving and mileage put on these - compared to Firestone W- rated tires that I've had before, no wear has been noticeable on...  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 HX MXM4

These are the OEM tires which came with the car. My overall experience has been very good. I live in Chicago suburbs and managed pretty well with these tires in light and heavy snow. Now after riding 87K on them i am ready to replace them and could go with them happily.   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 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I purchased these tires to replace the Pirelli P Zero Nero run flats that were original equipment on the car.The first thing I noticed is that they are quieter and smoother riding than the Pirellis. Steering, handling and braking are first rate. If you are looking for an upgrade for your vehicle, this is the way to go. I haven't set off the stabilitrak yet...  Read More

Best Tires for Honda CR-V (Part 2)

As I mentioned in my previous blog, "Best Tires for Honda CR-V (Part 1)", the Honda CR-V has grown from a relatively small SUV when it was first introduced to the civilized mid-size crossover vehicle that it is today. As the vehicle has grown, so has it's tire and wheel size.  In this follow-up post, I will cover recommended tires for the third-, fourth- and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

Purchase my Edge used from a dealership with these tires at 19,990 miles in November 2014. I just rolled over 100,000 miles yesterday and still have 4/32 of tread left. The road noise has increased as the wear has increased however getting 100,000 miles out of a set of tires is very impressive. I have rotated them every four to six months.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Learned a lesson from my previous Mini-S and took my new car directly from the dealer to the installer to dump the Dunlap run flats with Michelin Super Sports. In just those 20-some miles, the improvement between the ride there vs. the ride back was amazing. Much smoother, much quieter, cornered like it was on rails. I wondered how these would wear.Well,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

Original set of tires. These are on my daughter's 2015 Chevy Equinox FWD. She does 90% highway driving and have a touch over 72,000 (volleyball) miles on these tires with tread still left. Tire rides good; noise level good; general handling is good. They don't handle the water as well as other tires I have used in the past BUT not bad. We do keep nitro in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Day and night difference between these tires and the P Zero tires that came on the car (ride, noise and handling). They also handle better and ride better than the last set of Pilot Super Sports I had on a S5 cab.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I picked up my BMW 640i Xdrive in January of this year. I ordered it with all season tires so I could drive it until I got snow tires for it. From the first time I drove the car I was a little disappointed in the handling. The steering was not precise like I expected to the point where I was going to ask my dealer to check alignment. Once I put winter tires...  Read More

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

This is my second set of Michelin sport all season tires for my 2008 Corvette. The last set lasted five years and I only got rid of them after 15,000 miles because I had picked up nails in both rear tires that could not be patched. If you are going to put all season tires on your Corvette, these are an excellent choice. However, as they get worn down,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Came from PS2 with 225/40-18 front and 285/30-18 rear to thes Pilot Super Sport with new rear size of 265/35-18. The PS2 were too pricy just for the Porsche N rating so I compromised with the Super Sport and less wide rear tire. Truth is other than looks of the rear tires mainly from a side higher profile I did not compromise. These tires are rock solid,...  Read More

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

After several thousand irriatating miles with a set of Yokohama tires, I decided to go back to my original decision and purchase these Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 Plus and boy I am mad that I even tried a different tire. This is my first initial review so I will try to update as the mileage goes up on them, but I love these tires. First thing is to make sure...  Read More
