Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This review is of my WS70s bought this winter, but also my WS50s which I bought in 2007. Both sets of Blizzaks have been absolutely awesome and to be honest, I can't tell the difference between them. If you have never driven on proper winter tires then you will be astonished. When I bought my Mustang (305bhp/320lbft rear wheel drive) to use in upstate New...  Read More

Tire Advice for My Cousin's Dream 2011-2013 Ford Mustang V6 Manual

My cousin is in the market for a new car. What should he get? He's looking for a muscle car big enough to fit his 6'3" frame and at a price around $17,000. Unfortunately, the 2015 Ford Mustang (pictured below) won't make the cut. Since he needed to move on from this dream car, he started looking at the 2014 model. He checked out a lot of cars at the show, but...  Read More

KW Variant 3 Coil-Over: Race Technology That's Comfortable on the Street

Having just purchased a 2012 Ford Mustang GT, I felt that many aspects of the vehicle's performance were phenomenal, however the suspension left me wanting more. While the car provides good lateral grip in corners and performs better than any other generation of stock Mustang, the soft spring rates contribute to excessive body roll and front-end pitch under...  Read More

G2 Caliper Paint: A Nice Finishing Touch

While I've installed suspension and brakes in the past, it can be some work. This past weekend's task was much easier with the use of G2's Brake Caliper Paint System Set to cover up the factory caliper's tarnished raw casting. The G2 Caliper Paint System is quite thorough and comes with a can of brake clean, paint color of you choice, hardening resin, stir...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I have a 1998 Mustang Cobra with 280 HP at the rear wheels. I had a set of BFgoodrich g-force sports in 245/45/17 and would spin through 1st and 2nd gear and slide in most hard corners. To be fair, I impacted weight transfer with an Eibach kit that included lowering springs, sway bars etc.(Love the kit) and then I added caster/camber plates and set camber...  Read More

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

OEM tires for my 19 wheels. Always impressed w/ traction and handling of these tires. Have worn them down to racing slicks at just under 20,000 miles though..but I do like to drive her hard. This is a performance tire. I have no idea how anyone could get much more than 25-30,00 miles out of these tires..and you should not expect to. Tires have always seemed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

I put these on my wifes van. She uses this for work and vacations. Last year in Chicago we had a couple of 6 plus snowa and a few lighter snowa. These tires were awesome in the snow. Felt like I had awd. On icy roads the Blizzaks are much better confidence around corners over an all season tire. I highly recomend buying a set of snow tires for winter. They...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

My 2012 Mustang V6 is equipped with 235/50/18 all season tires. I was sure that installing a narrower 225/60/17 and higher profile snow tire would result in the typically squirmy and soft performance which many poorly constructed snow tires are afflicted with. I can confirm what several reviewers have claimed about dry performance, and after a few days of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have bought these tires before on a 94 Ford Mustang. I like them alot. It is difficult to rate the tires on a Audi S4 because it has superior all wheel drive system. With the top down the tires a very quiet. With the top up they are quiet. We haven't had much rain. but I know from when I had the Mustang that the tires were awesome. We will get some snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I installed these tires on my 1965 289 Mustang along with a new set of American Racing Torq Thrust chrome wheels. I have 225 45 ZR 17s on the front on 17x7 wheels and 235 45 ZR 17s on the rear on 17x8 wheels. What a huge difference over the 15x7 wheels and off-brand tires on the car before! The biggest difference I see is in the turn-in rate. These tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Don't get me started talking about how amazing these tires are. I tell people to go to Tirerack and read the reviews for themselves.

My rear wheel drive Mercedes with the then 18 inch...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I was very surprised at the winter/snow performance of these tires. I drive a 2002 Mustang GT, which can be interesting with a dusting of snow but I drove through all the the snow we had the winter before last in NY. I did not have a single problem. For winter driving on a rear wheel drive car, I would suggest these tires.Wet driving was better than expected...  Read More
