Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

These Pirelli P-Zeros All Season Plus-revised compund tires replaced Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+. They've performed similarly, except that they're a quieter, softer-feeling ride - similar to a Michelin Primacy MXV4, without sacrificing any handling compared to the Pilot Sports. They seem to be wearing like the MXV4s -- that is, a little slower than the Pilot...  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 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Amazing tire! Cornering stability is unreal ! Wet traction unreal ! Previous tire pilot super sport... These are far better.... Much less noise...and much better performance tires...   Read More

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

Now that I've had these tires for nearly a full year, I'm impressed! They're ability to perform at high levels in all kinds of weather, especially wet is amazing. These tires best perform at 34psi on the rear and 36 psi on the front. The grip for launches, steering response cornering haven't changed after 7 autocross events that have 6 runs at each event....  Read More

Don't Let Snow Stop Your 2017 Honda Civic Type R

Before my BRZ and MR2 Spyder days, I was a Honda guy. To this day, I still hope Honda will come out with a new Prelude. If not, the Civic Type R sure looks like a vehicle to tempt my interests.  Are you a driver that just picked up a Civic Type R yourself? I'm sure you're loving it, but if you reside in the snowbelt region, you're going to need winter /...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Original tire size for my car is 235/40-18. Currently run Michelin Primacy MXM4 on 18 factory rims during the winter. Bought a set of summer wheels in 19 and ran 235/35-19 Michelin Pilot Super Sports for 40,000 miles (worn out) until changing them out for Michelin Pilot Sport 4S in same summer 19 size.In short, the new Sport 4S tires in 19 ride as smoothly...  Read More

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

Coming from a older model Conti DW performance summer tire to the AS/3+ I found these to be near the same in 'performance' (handling) and comparable ride quality, plus the AS/3+'s have bit stiffer sidewall than the older Conti model so cornering is on par or maybe slightly better. Low noise and very good comfort/ride so far, 2 thumbs up. Will update report...  Read More

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

10,000x better than the Continental SSR RFT! Make the car so much smoother and quite without impacting handling. Like all the reviews say this is the best tire for people who want a high performance tire with light snow mobility. WILL buy again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I have been a Michelin PSS fan for some time now. My M2 came with Contis which I replaced with the 4Ss right after the break-in. Given the M2 was a big step up from my 335is in regards to performance, and running wider tire sizes. It is hard to give good feedback comparing them to the PSS. I can at least say I feel this is the best all around street tire you...  Read More

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

I had the original stock continental run flats that BMW (for some reason) puts on their cars. Because the tire is so hard it made the ride a little to hard and i felt every little bump in the road. I ended up having to replace the tires due to a bubble developing on the sidewall of one of the tires. And i chose to go with the Michelin pilot sport a/s 3...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

What a supple tire! Everyone complements this tire on it's performance capabilities(which are spot-on imo) but what a smooth riding tire! The F type is known for it's stiff suspension, but this tire really smoothes things out...no impact harshness...better than the P-Zeros. If you have a F Type with 20 rims this is the only tire for you...you won't regret...  Read More

You Can Run But You Can't Hide From Mother Nature

Do you need to run winter / snow tires? If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow or your vehicle comes equipped with summer tires from the factory, you should strongly consider installing winter tires. Dedicated snow tires will enhance an all-wheel drive vehicle's winter capability, make an intrinsically "bad-in-snow" car better and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

Purchased Aug 2017. PSS ZP 285/35ZR-19, tire build dates 2617, 1217. PSS ZP 245/40ZR-18, tire build dates 3415, 2316. Did not expect Tire Rack to send out 2 year old tire. These replaced a front set of Hankooks Ventus (build 0116) and rear set of Goodyear Supercars (build 1216), all non-runflats. These tires were on the car when I purchased it Dec 2016.The...  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 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 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

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
