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 BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

1000 miles on this set of tires and I can already tell that it is way better than OE Pirelli tire. Dry performance is quiet impressive, it sticks to the surface of the road like crazy. During rain it holds pretty good without any signs of hydroplaning. It is does create some kind of noise which is fine with me. So far so good.   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 moved from the factory 205-40/17 tire size Bridgestone RE-050s to the Direzza ZII*-spec in 205-50/15 for both a reduction in unsprung weight and increased sidewall height to help combat the rough roads in Vermont while still maintaining the sharp handling of the Fiesta ST. Sadly I can say, that though the overall grip is quite comparable between the...  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

Truck Tires: Off-Road Tires and Mud Tires / Mudding Tires Versus All-Terrain Tires

If you have a truck or rugged SUV that you often drive off of the beaten path, then you should consider using tires that are more aggressive than standard Highway All-Season tires or Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tires. How much more aggressive do should you consider? That depends on how much off-road driving you'll be doing and how severe your...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The absolute best performance tire I have ever driven on, almost impossible to push these tires to there limit on the street   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 ExtremeContact DWS 06

Reading the review, I concluded this was the best bang for the buck for my daily driver. Handling performance under both wet and dry conditions is superb and it keeps you in contact with the feel of the road. The grip is excellent on twisting back roads out on the countryside. The only thing unexpected was the amount of road noise. I know they're all-season,...  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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

Flat out the best tire for the Boxster. No other Bridgestone tire even compares. I am the one who wrote multiple reviews on the S-04 Pole Pos and how disappointed I was. The S-04s are on the rear and I have the RE-11s on the front. I almost turned away from Bridgestone as a result of the poor performance of the S-04 but the RE-11 is so sharp in steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

The OEM tires for this car were Yoko AVID S34B which I felt were very good tires,I got 43k out of them and could have possibly made it to 50k had the toe in been properly set at the factory,all the 08 Lancers seem to have been set up with the front wheels toed in a little to much causing faster outside wear on the tires then the rest of the tire. The Yokos...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D

I use these year round here in Norther Michigan and in Massachusetts. Wish they still hade the run flat version, maybe that was in 3D, not sure why they don't have them. Anyway, this tire is a brilliant and essentially year round friend. Very quiet and smooth all seasons with performance both for higher speeds, snow and ice, wet and dry. Off street as you...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TerrainContact A/T

I changed tires recently, because of hail, sleet, heavy snow, and ice on 2 recent trips. I was not happy with my stock tires performance. Since that time, I have driven in the same conditions again through Colorado, Utah, New Mexico California, and Texas. I also have beenoff-road in Arizona, and Colorado. This is the best set of tires I have ever used for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Falken Azenis RT615K+

I have bought 4 sets of Falken [215] and [615] These are fine dry weather traffic tires, and good dry track tires. They lose some traction in the dry if overheated, but rebound adequately when cool again. After 10 - 20? heat cycles the tread gets harder. They are manageable in rain when new, but approach slicks when worn near the tread wear indicators.At...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

What a GREAT tire!! Even for the price, the performance out of these tires do not disappoint!!Owning a Mini Cooper S, I wanted a tire that had exceptional grip, retained as much comfort as possible and didnt break the bank. After much back and forth between BFG's and Firestones and 90% of the Mini owners I talked to trying to sway me towards the BFG's,...  Read More
