Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Smooth, Very Smooth... As a new installation and only about 500 miles, all is Smooth, Quiet, and well balanced - Nice Ride! All is startin out just fine. Will get back at about 20K...   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 BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Bought these to help get me home from work in the New England Winters. A little noisy but nothing unreasonable for an all terrain tire. I almost got rid of my Yukon after its poor performance with the stock tires. I got the KO2s and I now love my Yukon in the snow. I didn't need dedicated snow tires, plus I have nowhere to store them. These are great for my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

Currently have 7k miles on my RE-71R's. I haven't done any AutoX or serious racing, mainly highway pulls and some spirited driving. The tyres have been very good and have lasted a while. They look pretty much brand new despite having 7k miles on them. My main fear was treadwear but I can happily confirm that these tyres wil last a while if you don't do...  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 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 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 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 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 Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

I recently replaced my OEM Goodyears with these tires after 23,000 miles, and it's like I'm driving a new car. The new tires are significantly quieter with much better grip, particularly in wet weather. I've driven in a few rain storms since switching tires, and never did I feel the same slippage that I did with the original tires. I haven't driven in snow...  Read More

Best Tires for Honda CR-V (Part One)

Over five generations, the Honda CR-V has grown from a boxy, small SUV when first introduced in 1997, to the mature and civilized mid-size crossover vehicle that it is today. As the vehicle has grown, so has it's tire and wheelsize. 15-inch wheels and tires were used on the first-generation, while new CR-Vs roll off of the assembly line on 17-inch or...  Read More

Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+ Versus the New Pirelli Pzero Nero A/S Plus

Since its launch in early 2016, the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ has been a popular choice in the Ultra High Performance All-Season category. Its crisp steering response, generous wet and dry grip and excellent hydroplaning resistance makes it a top choice for drivers wanting sporty handling that bests many summer-only performance tires. During a pre-launch...  Read More

Newer is Better: Introducing the Ultra High Performance All-Season General G-MAX AS-05

Founded in 1915, General Tire has been making tires for over 100 years. That knowledge base improved even more in 1987 when General was purchased by a leading German-tire manufacturer. This infusion of capital and technology has helped General continue to make great tires at a very reasonable prices.   One such General tire that has tested well and impressed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender T+H

These are replacing the Michelin Energy Saver tires that came factory installed on the car when new. I live in the Midwest and those tires were terrible in any winter weather. I chose the Michelin Defender T+H due to the strong name that is Michelin, tread wear warranty, and tire tread depth of 10/32 compared to the 8/32 on the Premier A/S tires . After 50...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015

I bought this tire for my LR2 because there are basically no other A/T options for my tire size: 235/60/18. I don't go off-roading, but I do leave the road from time-to-time and live close enough to snow country that I wanted to be able to drive into snow without having to slap chains on at the first sign of trouble.So, my first impression was that the tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP600

I'm sorry there is only one tire alternative for the i3. I have had road hazard problems on both rear tires, however, (I know I'm in the minority) my front tires have turned over 35,000 and are at the 3/32 buy new tires point. I have read many comments of people wearing out tires very early on. I don't understand. But I do drive the vehicle non-aggressively....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I purchased this minivan 8 months ago to replace my '99 Town & Country minivan, looking for improved mileage ( I was getting 20-23 US MPG highway with the old van, new one rated at 25 US MPG = 9.40 L/100 km). I was initially disappointed with the OEM tires, getting between 9.5 and 11 L/100 km highway, or about 21.4 to 24.8 US MPG. Then I bought these tires....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Bought these tires based on wet performance reviews. South Florida climate demands good wet and dry traction, and these tires deliver. I also wanted a smooth, quiet ride for the Town Car, and BONUS! these were also highly rated for comfort. Much more quiet and smooth than the Goodyear tires they replaced, MUCH longer tread life, far better traction...  Read More

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

Completely changed our Mini Cooper S 2012. Ride is much easier, not loud or bone-shattering anymore, and the steering feels way more safe and responsive. Tires are loads better in the rain, not spinning as much as the continental runflats that came with the car. No one who has driven the car has been able to get the tires to chirp. Previously, the tires...  Read More
