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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

Incredible!!! I believe they are underrated and should be Max Performance, but they have the comfort of UHP. Perhaps they did not want to scare people away, who were looking for comfort.I gave them a 10 on Performance categories, because they seem to be right there with the likes of PSS & RE-11 under street conditions on my heavy car. I can't comment on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

If you own a Honda Pilot these are the tires for you. My previous 2 sets of Michelin tires wore out at 15,000 miles. These Firestones performance are as good if not better than the previous Michelins' and they last unlike the prior tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

These tires are much better than the Continentals that came from the factory. The ride is better, quieter, and the overall performance is better. I could not find extreme performance tires for this vehicle, but have found these to be an excellent choice.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk AS

These replaced the Bridgestone Ecopia tires I had on my Mazda 3. Overall this was a massive improvement. These tires are very quiet by comparison, and maybe the most quiet tires I've ever used. They really perform predictably on the road and provide excellent handling. The grip around corners is superior and I can make many turns now that would cause my...  Read More

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

Ride, comfort and noise is excellent. Very quiet tire. Ride quality is on firm side but very acceptable. Remember its a performance tire. Dry traction is good. I haven't had the chance to drive in much rain but grip seems fine with the little exposure I've had. I was a little disappointed in the cornering grip especially with sh-awd. Cornering is good but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I replaced the factory Continentals the first day. I had a previous Tahoe with the factory equipment and didn't care for the noise and the just-average performance. I chose the Michelin Defender based on the good performance given on my aging Merc E320. Even though an SUV tire is quite different from a passenger car tire, the same qualities remained:...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Great tire and an improvement over the Pilot Super Sports. Same amazing tread life and dry performance, but improved wet characteristics. Previous tire was the Bridgestone RE-71's so the review reflects the performance delta between the two (probably unfair as the RE-71's last <10k). The PS 4s are the best balance between spirited daily driving, longevity,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Have run these about 1,000-1,500 miles since mounting them about a month ago. Exceptional tires. They replaced the daily a/s tires (Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric) I had on my car's 19-inch Cadiz wheels for the previous 40k miles. I also have a set of Pilot Super Sports for track. Far and away these tires are better so far than both of the others. Versus the...  Read More

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

These tires are some of the best I've ever owned. They're super sticky thus making them trust worthy around fast cornering. The tread pattern is not the prettiest thing to look at. the sidewalls are not a sporty as you would like but the overall performance makes it easy to look past that. I can't comment on turning responsiveness because I only replaced the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

I have 235 K miles on my F350 4x4 XLT Crew cab Every mile has been on either All Terrains or last 3 sets KO2s .There is no other tire for me , for safety, comfort, towing and confidence both on and off road . These tires have Performed in every kind of weather . Having confidence in your tires is almost as important as knowing your engine is well maintained...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Coming off a set of half worn Michelin Pilot Super Sports it was immediately apparent they've tuned the comfort level of the new PS4S. Not only does the 4S seem quieter on smooth pavement but also over small impacts and road imperfections. Even larger daily cringe worthy impacts are leaving me happily confused on the other side. My only complaint with the...  Read More

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

This is an overall GREAT handling tire even better than my last Michelins I had. After a few days of driving I noticed that the tires were VERY LOUD. That is the only ONE problem, but it is not that big of a deal. I guess that is what must be compromised for great traction, grip, cornering abilities, stopping distance, and great pick up from a dead stop on...  Read More

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

First of all, the tread life of these tires is not very good. If you are buying these to drive on daily, you (other than just wasting them) are more or less wasting your money, they aren't really meant for that. I'm roughly 40% through the life of the tire after 3500 miles of combined city/highway, three track days and one autocross event. These are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

Got these tires at the same time I went from 225/40-18 to 225/45-17 on 17x8 lightweight wheels. These tires are light too at 21 lbs ea. Ride quality has greatly improved at the same time wet and dry traction immensely improved! No more wheel spin- these just hook up and go. Most impressive is the wet traction however- been getting a lot of rain here in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

Thanks to TireRack reviews and ratings, these quickly replaced the OEM BFG Radial Long Trails on my Xterra, tires that I previously described as providing irresponsible. (I stand by that assessment.)After the first 15,000 miles or so, I thought the Adventurer All-Terrains had done a fine job—not exceptional, but fine. In fact (and it pains me admit this),...  Read More

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

Just hit 10K on these tires and they still look, feel, and perform like new. I do have a staggered setup so I can't comment on further wear; I haven't driven the car in snow either so I can't comment on that either. Steering response is fantastic, as is the fuel economy and quietness of ride.These will be replacing the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S on my...  Read More
