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 Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

Tire has good traction but has a noise level which is extremely loud.Never had tires that produced this amount of noise.I wish they put in the noise cancelling system which Audi required from Pirelli. Review from TireRack video indicated they were very quiet. Would not have bought these if I knew about the sound issue.   Read More

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

Bought these tires when vehicle had 30,000 miles to replace original tires (Pirelli) which had cupped badly. Have taken 3 long trips on this set and they are wonderful! Live along the Gulf coast where it rains a lot and these tires are great in the rain.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I bought these Pirellis as my fourth set of tires for my truck. The ratings I give for these tires are in comparison to the previous brands I have used. having said that, these are the best-performing tires I have ever driven on and I will continue to use them for as long as I own my truck!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I purchased these tires to replace the Pirelli P Zero Nero run flats that were original equipment on the car.The first thing I noticed is that they are quieter and smoother riding than the Pirellis. Steering, handling and braking are first rate. If you are looking for an upgrade for your vehicle, this is the way to go. I haven't set off the stabilitrak yet...  Read More

Best Tires for Honda CR-V (Part 2)

As I mentioned in my previous blog, "Best Tires for Honda CR-V (Part 1)", the Honda CR-V has grown from a relatively small SUV when it was first introduced to the civilized mid-size crossover vehicle that it is today. As the vehicle has grown, so has it's tire and wheel size.  In this follow-up post, I will cover recommended tires for the third-, fourth- and...  Read More

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

This is an overall excellent tire for the price and category. I replaced the old Conti ProContacts, which performed well other than being noisy, with these tires after putting about 40000 miles on the old set of tires. What I noticed right out the gate was that the tire felt softer, more comfortable and quiet with a marked improvement in dry and wet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I can't tell if the tire comfort is great for this particular application - it seems fine to me. You don't buy a Cayenne Turbo expecting it to be a quiet vehicle, but I've never noticed extra noise from the tires. Handling and acceleration are great as far as SUV standards go.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Nero GT

These Pzero Nero GT's made an immediate improvement in traction, noise and ride. Really holds the road well, don't hear them with the top down, delivers all the power sent to them. Early yet, but no noticeable treadwear problems. Makes this little drop top a lot of fun on excursions into the Ozark foothills.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Run Flat

Best all around tires I have ever purchased. Haven't noticed any driving limitations due to the tire.   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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero (PZ4)

Came from michelin pss. The steering feels a tad bit more responsive that pss. It's certainly a lot more better on the ride quality. Very well isolated on large and lumps. Slightly quieter than pss. Grip levels are pretty similar too. Overall a great tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Initial tires on my Q7 were summer tires. 20,000 miles and worn out. Had a very difficult time finding a 21 inch tire that was not a summer tire. Bought these tires and could not be happier. Quiet, smooth riding, handles wonderfully. Highly recommend. Also recommend the customer service representative that I talked with. Even though the web site showed no...  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

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 BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

A definite improvement over the factory Pirellis that barely last 20,000 miles and are typically noisy and out of round. I bought these based on reviews on Tire Rack, and am very pleased so far. The car is much quieter, and for an all season tire, very grippy and responsive. If these come even close to the 45,000 mile treadwear warranty, I'll be extremely...  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 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

Replaced set of Pirelli P Zero Nero All Seasons (OEM) on my Mustang with the Pilot Sport A/S 3+ and am very happy. The Pirellis had only 35000 km on them; were difficult to balance, had irregular wear (even with 2 alignments) and were very twitchy, grabbing every rut that the car encountered. I thought that maybe the EPAS was going bad, since the same...  Read More
