Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Coming off a set of half worn Michelin Pilot Super Sports it was immediately apparent they've tuned the comfort level of the new PS4S. Not only does the 4S seem quieter on smooth pavement but also over small impacts and road imperfections. Even larger daily cringe worthy impacts are leaving me happily confused on the other side. My only complaint with the...  Read More

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

This is an overall GREAT handling tire even better than my last Michelins I had. After a few days of driving I noticed that the tires were VERY LOUD. That is the only ONE problem, but it is not that big of a deal. I guess that is what must be compromised for great traction, grip, cornering abilities, stopping distance, and great pick up from a dead stop on...  Read More

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

Just hit 10K on these tires and they still look, feel, and perform like new. I do have a staggered setup so I can't comment on further wear; I haven't driven the car in snow either so I can't comment on that either. Steering response is fantastic, as is the fuel economy and quietness of ride.These will be replacing the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S on my...  Read More

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

To date, I think these Michelins are a very comfortable high-performance tire with excellent wet-weather traction. I I don't have enough miles or weather on them to evaluate longevity or snow performance, but I have driven them in dry and wet highway conditions, and they are very smooth-riding, have great wet and dry traction, and impart confidence in their...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I bought these tires for my 2013 Subaru outback. I was getting tired of having tires that really didn't work well in the snow.After taking a look at all the options I settled on the X ice3, and I'm glad I did. They did great on ice, they did great on snow, and the surprising thing is if they did really well compared to my normal tires… In fact they might...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Riken Raptor ZR

I haven't driven much on this tire (1 month) to be hit up for a review but so far--no disappointments. Raptors are reasonably quiet and have done well in all conditions--no drama even on cold bare roads after a minor wet snowfall. Seeing as how these are made by Michelin, I was not surprised at how well these performed--especially for a tire costing less...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I'm a spirited driver and previously came out of the Michelin Pilot Super Sports, which was a fantastic performing tire in itself, but the most noticeable change with the new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S is an improvement in the ride quality and harshness from the tire when hitting impacts in the road and the dry handling responsiveness and cornering stability....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 N-Spec

If you are looking for a performance winter tire. This is it. I've used normal winter tires on a Honda Civic before and i hated the handling and the noise and the grip in the rain and dry wasn't that great. With my performance package Mustang GT, I knew i wanted to maintain the sporty handling that the car had on the factory Pirelli P-Zero Maximum...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I rarely write reviews, but felt compelled to do so for this tire.Just replaced my Ecsta Platinums with another set after 61K miles! I've rarely gotten more than 40K out of a set of tires before they started having problems - and never remember over 50K. 95% highway miles - and while I'm not aggressive with the tires, I'm no Sunday driver either. Rotated...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Bought these tires to replace the OE Bridgestone tires on my '13 Highlander after 50K of city/hwy combined driving. OE Bridgestone tires were okay, but I was looking for a better all season tire for all types of driving here in eastern PA.Reviewed all of the TR testing and reviews and decided to go with these Michelins. After 7,500 miles of fall, winter, and...  Read More

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

This Volvo S90 shipped with summer Pirelli P Zero tires on 20 wheels, but we needed all season tires and there aren't many choices in this size. We knew the 20 wheels and summer tires would be a problem when we bought the car. We tried to find a 19 option, but that didn't work and instead we arranged for Volvo to install Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+ tires,...  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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Downsized from stock Conti 5P in 235/35/19 to these 4S in 245/40/18. Wanted to add some sidewall for additional rim protection. Wasn't prepared for how quiet and smooth the ride became. Took the new shoes to Deals Gap and Tail of the Dragon where they performed way too well in 40 degree wet weather for a summer tire. Once the weather got to more appropriate...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I mean this tire speaks for itself, my car came with Dunlop run-flats which are complete garbage so having had a spare winter wheel/tire set up for the car, I opted to install summer tires for my OEM Rays Eng. performance package wheels. The car feels like a completely different animal, the steering response is great (though I have electronic steering) but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

OE equipment, almost 94k miles on the original tires... what more can I say? In Oklahoma we have all kinds of driving conditions, ice, rain, snow, extreme heat. 4 years on the tires and zero complaints. Really good traction in ice/snow/rain. Dry roads the tires seem a little hard (can spin easier) Can slide a little if you take a corner too fast. BUT, they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I got these for my 2015 Tahoe, and they made this truck what it is - luxury SUV that can go anywhere. These tires are phenomenal. Please don't listen to people bashing these tires in winter conditions. People bashing these tires for poor snow performance should learn : a. These are not winter tires. b. how to drive in winter conditions.Tires are performing...  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 Pirelli P Zero

OE summer tire on my Performance Pkg '15 Mustang GT 6sp. I've tried to find opportunities/conditions to justify Ford's selection of this tire, but after almost a year in a variety of temperatures and weather conditions I'm really looking forward to replacing the tires, even with plenty of tread left. This tire loses grip under too many conditions, even when...  Read More

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

Just put a set these on my Infiniti G-37xS last week. Tire Rack shipped them to my Infiniti dealer who did the install. They balanced up beautifully without much weight. Just have about 250 miles on them so far and just tried them in the snow tonight. Pleasantly surprised at how well they did, considering these are not snows, but all-seasons. In terms of wet...  Read More
