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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

We have run two sets of these tires on minivans...VW Routan and Chrysler T&C. Very quiet tire, excellent ride, good handling, I'm mean, this is a minivan not a 535 BMW. Traction is adequate, snow is tough on any all season tire, I could get another 10,000 miles on these but will replace soon. 60,000 on any tire is excellent...65% in town driving, 35%...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

When this set of original tires were brand new they looked used. Everyone thinks I race the car after looking at the cars after looking at the tires. I would love to have more traction so I may go with the Supper Sport and move away from the Sport Cup since I do not track the car.   Read More

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 Super Sport

I like the tires. I have Michilin on 3 cars. I am disappointed that it took 7 tires to get 4 round ones. Yes, 3 of the 1st 4 tires were out of spec. I am also disappointed that I wasn't reimbursed for the cost of the test to find the problem or to have the next 3 mounted and balanced. Or the about $35 it cost in gas to make 2 trips to Las Vegas, about 300...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Tire was fine in all aspects except tread wear. It's rated at 90,000 but tires are worn out at 45K. It's hot here in the Arizona desert so maybe that's why they didn't last.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender T+H

There are few tire choices available for my old Porsche, but having Michelin support a 14 inch tire size is very welcomed. Ride comfort is great, the noise levels are near non existent and the standard touring category performance of this tire suits the old car well. During more aggressive driving, the standard touring performance level of this tire is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

After over 27000 miles, I'm very satisfied with these Michelin tires. At this point, I should be able to go another 4000-5000 miles on the front tires, and the rear tires should have another 20000 miles or more left on them. Sometimes they are a little noisy, depending on the road surface, but the traction can't be beat. Unless I change my mind, I'll buy...  Read More

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

Previously had Michelin Pilot Exalto tires on the car and like them a lot for handling, steering response and turn-in. Exaltos were 9 years old and had started to be very noisy in the last year. ( Have another vehicle that I use and also use winter tires mounted on separate rims on the 04 TL, thus the reason that I had kept the Exaltos for 9 years.) The new...  Read More

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

I had a set of Michelin ltx m/s previously on a F-150 2000 model truck and got 60000 miles on them and still had about 10000 miles left when I sold the truck. They did not dry rot that much or crack even after being on the truck for 5 years. I never had a flat with them. they had excellent traction on wet and snowy roads. That is why I specifically looked...  Read More

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

I have put very few miles on these tires but the miles I have driven I am quite satisfied with the ride and feel.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Sport 3

Bought these tires after trying the comparable Dunlop and Yokohama tires. For the same price range these tires blew the doors off the competition. Awesome cornering and traction in dry conditions. Confident driving in wet conditions and the road noise was better than the others. Just like all the other summer performance tires, once it gets cold they lose...  Read More
