Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z III

Okay, I decided to give a shot on this Sumitomo tires after reading reviews and watching TR comparison vid. Prior to these tires, I had Kumho Eczta and Falken Azenis. These were quite similar w/ Falken having a slightly performance edge. These are also about 40% more expensive than the Sumitomo. The bad news first: Although in the video comparison, TR says...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Have had these tires for 20,000 miles, and in my opinion offer some of the best dry and wet traction I've experienced. I feel very confident with these tires. So far, wear has been good with proper rotate and balance, pressure, etc. If all goes well, I see 45,000 on these tires. Will update later. As for snow, these have been more than adequate in hard...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2

I had the older version of this tire on a Hyundai Azera for 5 winter seasons and was so delighted with it that when I needed a winter tire for my Lincoln, my mind was already made up. Still very new, but right out of the tire store parking lot I was astounded by a noticeably better ride, and the total lack of tire noise in comparison to the Grand Touring all...  Read More

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

The Michelin Sport A/S 3+ are super sticky on 328i 2010 Sport suspension. I staggered tires to match sports package, which was not set up prior to used car purchase. The previous owner did the economic non sport setup where all tires were the same size. The new setup increases car performance in ways I love. It has improve my ride comfort (luxury-goes over...  Read More

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

First off, I am no tire expert. Second, I have only driven these tires for 800 miles. Third, I am not a professional driver, I have never tracked a car, and I have never had any track/racing lessons. I live in New York City and do most of my driving on the weekends getting out of the city to either eastern Long Island or upstate New York. I seldom drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I moved from Texas to New Jersey, bringing my rear wheel drive Infiniti coup with me. With the original Dunlop all season tires, driving in the winter was almost impossible. Since I drive this car only about 8000 miles a year, I chose to go with XIce Xi3, and keep the snow tires on the car year round. So far, it has been a great experience. The tires have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

The tires were O.E. on my new 2016 VW Golf Sportwagon. When I purchased the car I immediately got larger wheels and summer performance tires, purchased from Tire Rack, which I installed immediately . I swapped them back to the O.E. all-season Bridgestones in early Nov. with the arrival of colder weather. What a huge change for the worse! After driving about...  Read More

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

The price amd the ratings are what persuaded me to purchase these tires. There extremly grippy tires, extremly soft rubber that basically sounds like their peeling off the road. I have yet to drive in snow/ice conditions but as far as rain they never miss a beat. I will be purchasing another set for my new car here in about a month. I would recommend these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2

These tires and new wheels were purchased for winter driving and so far we have had just a few days of light snow. The tires along with a bit wider wheel have increased the Jeep's handling stability in corners, with some increase in tire noise but not at all off putting, I like the change in handling so much I will leave them on year round over the OEMs.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Installed on a 2007 Edge with AWD later in the 2015 season and had balancing issues. Ran them as I needed to have them on due to a storm. During the 2015 season, about 1,000 miles went on the tires. In the 2016, I took them back to my installer due to the shimmy that was present in the steering wheel. They road force balanced the tires and found road force...  Read More

Worried About How Your New 2016 - 2017 Chevy Camaro Will Do in the Snow? Relax, We Got Your Back!

For example, you have a 2016 Camaro and we have several tire and wheel options to get you through the...  Read More

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

I put this set on my 2006 Mazdaspeed 6 right when I purchased the vehicle, so I can't compare it to other tires on this car. But these tires are awesome! They grip in every scenario and perform great in every aspect. My Mazdaspeed 6 is AWD, but when lifting the e-brake up one click (disengages rear wheels), the tires still grab extremely well with 270 crank...  Read More

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

These tires replace the prior generation Michelin A/S 3's that I had on the car. One of the great features is the 45K mile warranty -- which I used to get into these tires. After 21K miles, the prior set was down to 3/32 in front and 4/32 in rear. They had gotten noisy, harsh, and obviously past their expected traction sweet-spot. So these new A/S 3+'s are a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

I spent a month on the Tire Rack website for my new to me Tahoe. It already had Bridgestone tires on it and I bought this vehicle from a friend. No complaints from him on the last set. Boy did I make a great decision at this point. Even thought they are just slightly noisy, they have performed better than expected. I made it through winter with no issues in...  Read More

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

When I bought my Volvo used, it had been sitting on the lot since December and had a new set of Bridgestone Blizzaks on. Because I bought the car at the beginning of this summer though, I purchased a new tire/wheel package from Tire Rack and set the winter tires/wheels aside for later use. I chose these g-Force COMP-2 A/S tires based on the Tire Rack ratings...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

These came mounted as OEM for my new 2015 Odyssey, and although they are very quiet, responsive, great in the rain and handle well, they wore out very fast. I rotated them every 5,000 miles so the wear was even throughout but after 18 months of ownership and 24,000 miles on them they were worn down to the wear bars. I also use a set of winter tires/wheels...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I ordered subsize wheels (16X6.5 KOSEI K4R LT GREY) and 225/70R-16 MICHELIN PREMIER LTX tires. They were delivered, mounted and balanced, to my home. I wanted to improve the ride on my 2008 CRV with lighter wheels and the smoothest riding tire possible. Each one weighed eighteen (18) pounds less than the Honda wheel/Goodyear tire it replaced. I am pleased to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

Our new Odyssey Elite purchased in January 2015 came with these tires. During both winters (end of 2015, 2015/16) these tires were removed and replaced with snow tires. So there are 15,000 miles on these tires roughly. One pair is down to 4/32 inch and the other pair is at 7/32 inch. We are now getting serious vibration at highway speeds, indicating the...  Read More
