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 Riken Raptor ZR

I bought these tires to use for the summer of my Golf. I have winter tires mounted on a dedicated set of rims so I didn't need all seasons. I drive spirited but don't do track days in this car. So a cheap set of high performance summer tires seemed like a good way to go.I've been very happy with them. No they don't grip quite as well as some Pilot sports....  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+ (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 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 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 Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

After total dissatisfaction with continental USA I switched brands. I have Pirelli Sotozero III on OZ MSW wheels so the choice was easy. The tires came mounted and balanced in a matter of days ready to mount! Understanding that you will give up 5% of performance from UHP tires but get 100% wet traction is a must for our 1 car family. Road noise is...  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+┬áhas 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

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 Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

I bought a 2017 GTI Sport for one reason only: Carving up back roads and on/off ramps. I bought these tires to replace the OEM Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS 225-40R18I ones that my car came with. I found traction under acceleration to be lacking, and just wasn't as dazzled by the car as I expected to be. I got a flat early on, and took that opportunity to rush...  Read More

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

Within five miles of having these tyres installed on my 2015 Volkswagen GTI-S, I encountered a downpour and must say; my previous set of Pirelli P7 Cinturatos gripped quite well but were a tick tail happy in the wet. The BFGs were heads and shoulders above the Pirellis in the wet in keeping the back end planted.I then took my car through it's paces on a few...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Vredestein Sprint Classic

This is the second set of Vredestein Sprint Classics on my '64 Jaguar E-Type, and I love these tires. The car is used for autocross (different tires), mountain driving, and long backroads tours. These tires are the best for this car. Trust me, with stock wheels going to wider tires will only hurt performance and handling. Previously I used Michelin XVS which...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Spec

I'm driving a Miata with the factory R package and don't notice any more noise or a rougher ride from these tires than any other tires I've had on this car in the past 19 years. They have superior grip and much sharper turn in response than my previous tires, Toyo T1R (a very disappointing tire) and have better overall grip than my previous favorite tires on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

Stock tires that came with vehicle, we purchased the car 10,000 miles ago so we pretty much got the short end of the stick with the tires. But based off on 38,000 miles, they are worn down to the bone, literally hovering around 2/32. My girlfriend and I drive like bats out of -------- sometimes but mostly it's cruising and high end speeds on the expressway....  Read More

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

I drive an 03 Z06 Vette. It's my track car but it is street legal, I drive it to/from the track. It's modified for the track in terms of suspension, cooling, brakes etc. Drive train is stock. I do about 25-35 track days per season in the instructor groups. Tracks I drive are WGI, NJMP, LR, Pocono, SP, Palmer.A few years ago, I sold my dedicated race car had...  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

With a combination of highway daily driving and backroad traveling I HIGHLY recommend these tires as a replacement for the Goodyears that came on the car new. I destroyed the first set within the first 7000 miles. No, they do not grip quite as well as the highly focused Goodyears that came on the car, however, the slight amount of grip given up is well worth...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Just got pre-owned 2015 BMW 640xi Gran Sport with 5,000 miles. Came with original Eagle run flat tires. These tires have an awful reputation and my previous experience with OEM Goodyear Eagle tires of all types has been very negative- poor wear, no mileage warranty and noisy. Did a lot of research and discovered the Bridgestone Drive Guard Grand Touring Run...  Read More
