Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

We purchased these tires halfway through a 2600 mile trip from Texas to Virginia. They replaced a set of Michelin Latitude Tours that we were very happy with. But these are even better. They steer just slightly better - going through construction lane switches and concrete lane dividers is even more precise and stable. Impressive. They ride a hair more...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Vredestein Quatrac 5

These tires are simply amazing for a 4 season snow tire.I compared them to some $150 all Season Michelins. These tires were slightly better in the dry and the rain. I had left two of the Michelins on the back, and in the snow the traction differential made the car unsafe to drive. These tires had so much more snow traction that the car was unstable with the...  Read More

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

I bought these tires for my Maxima. They came with a set of Goodyear Eagle RS-A's. With the RS-A's you really felt the road. I then bought a set of Michelin Primacy and they were a complete upgrade to the Eagles. I basically got around 40K on both sets. So now I put on the Comp-2 and they are even better. It's like I now have the best traits of the 2 sets...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I bought this tire to replace the Continental DWS-06 when I came to the South East, because I didn't expect to encounter any snow. I initially thought about purchasing the Michelin Pilot Super Sports or the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position again, but after driving a friend's M3 equipped with the Firestones, I bought 6 tires (2 front/4 rear) for less...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Very good light snow traction with reasonable ice traction. Deep snow traction is OK for a dedicated snow. This tire really excels in dry and wet handling and braking compared to previous ice and snow tires I've had. Tread wear and tire noise is impressive as well. Compared to other snow and ice tires I've had for a number of vehicles including (Bridgestone,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I have just over 4,000 miles on this set. These tires are amazing! A perfect match for my little sports car. My car doesn't go out to play in the rain much so I can't really comment on that but just to say they were fine. I didn't really go all out when it was raining. Now, in the dry - these tires stick like glue to the road. Wear has been great also. This...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Vredestein Quatrac 5

Just picked these up as a year-round, all-weather tire for our AWD Tiguan. We'll be using this car primarily in the winter, so I was specifically looking for a severe winter service rated all-season alternative to dedicated snows paired with high performance all-seasons on separate wheels. We just aren't going to see enough miles on this car to warrant 2...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

From Spring to Fall, I find the ride quality, handling, and traction to be quite good. The have good cornering grip provide a comfortable highway ride.Unfortunately, there were a few significant drawbacks with these tires that offset their strong performance in the wet/dry. After 42,500 miles, my dealer recommended I replace these tires soon. I was a bit...  Read More

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

As the miles show, I have just purchased these Pirelli P7 A/S plus tires with only 300 miles driven. Certainly not enough to give a thorough review. However, I am not new to Tire Rack, I am a car enthusiast, and will return with a more thorough review in the future. I own a 2001 Lexus LS430 for the last 9 years which is known for is luxury quite ride. Here,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I got these to replace the stock Pirellis on my Mustang GT. After a couple of hundred miles, these tires GRIPPED. Using the on board accelerometer, my old best launch was about 0.76G at the track. With these tires, I was able to pull 0.93G aired down to around 24psi. On the road, grip was fantastic before I started modifying the car. Now, I can't get any...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Vredestein Quatrac 5

These tires are really good tires. Drove through two snow storms already one was pretty icy. Tires performed excellent. They are very quiet and much more responsive then the horrible OEM tires. Most likely will not last crazy long but they are not intended to. I have Michelin Primacy tires that are OEM on my Camry and they are very nice but I will also be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

I have a 2012 Ford Escape 4wd, I got it last April with 34,xxx on it, these tires were brand new from the dealer. They suffice in the summer, fall and spring. Quiet, smooth, and yields great fuel economy, (26-28 in the summer). Excellent dry and wet grip, and cornering stability considering the profile (truck balloons, not sport sedan)Now the real reason for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H426

These were OEM tires from Hyundai. These tires are poor quality, noisy on the road and poor traction on wet roads. I'm always scared to drive every time there's heavy rain or the road is wet. I'm planning to replace my tires this winter with Michelin.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I was only seeking Bridgestone (JP) or Micheline (FR), but as the French competitor was more expensive and were not made in France, I chose BS made in Japan (I grew up in Yokohama, Japan but Yokohama tires didn't seem to match either BS or MI). I rev my 3.2L VTEC motor very often and drive hard.There were two more expensive BS summer tires with not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

Purchased these tires in summer of 2014 and switch them out each winter with my Blizzack's. They are nice in the summer as far as traction, low noise level and comfort. BUT...I am a conservative, easy driver and these tires are worn down to the wear bars already after 21,500 miles. I can't understand how some other reviews claim low wear. Also, they slip...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

In dry weather the Michelin LTX AT2 grips the road well and corners nicely. In damp or wet weather the tires always break loose accelerating from a stop. Hydroplaning is so-so. I don't feel confident pushing the pace when it's wet outside. As far as snow is concerned, forget it. It's like being on ski's. I was trying to go up a very slight hill on my street,...  Read More

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

Bought these to replace some Bridgestone 960ASs; they were some great tires so I was loath to replace them. At 4/32 I didn't have much choice though. I am happy to report that, thus far, the Michelins are living up to all the hype. I haven't driven through a winter yet so I can't comment on ice or snow. In the wet they are pretty good though I still get some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I use these X-Ice3 tires year around on my Outback. The first set was good for about 40,000 miles, and when it was time to replace them I didn't even think about getting anything else.They perform well on dry roads and in Oregon's winter rains. Traction and stopping performance on wet and dry roads has never been a problem. No complaints about road noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Will update the review later, but wanted to note differences. So far drove only on dry road and tires are not drove-in yet, however the stability feels from the first moment (the previous tires felt a bit swimming until they were drove-in. The sound is not the quietest, however the bumps feels a bit less. Main difference, apart stability, is breaking - with...  Read More
