Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Fuzion UHP Sport A/S

I bought a set of these for my Porsche 928 S4. While it is too early to give a conclusion on treadwear, I don't anticipate anything to heap praise about with a treadwear rating of less than 400 on the UHP tires. If anyone buys these expecting a long treadlife for daily driving, I would recommend you have your head examined and seek something higher than a...  Read More

Dinan Performance Parts are Now Available at Tire Rack

Dinan's beginnings as a BMW tuner trace back to when Steve Dinan was a weekend racing enthusiast. His successful modifications to his own cars drew the curiosity of his fellow racers and he soon began selling performance parts out of his garage. His business grew into a full scale design, engineering and manufacturing company with a focus on producing...  Read More

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

I was concerned about buying these non Porsche approved tires so I decided to call Porsche and ask how they approve tires and why these are not approved. I didn't get very far as they just said we test tires and then they are approved. Regardless, my concerns were unfounded. My SUV had Continentals that I replaced at 25,000 miles and then I needed new tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Came from PS2 with 225/40-18 front and 285/30-18 rear to thes Pilot Super Sport with new rear size of 265/35-18. The PS2 were too pricy just for the Porsche N rating so I compromised with the Super Sport and less wide rear tire. Truth is other than looks of the rear tires mainly from a side higher profile I did not compromise. These tires are rock solid,...  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 4S

Very happy with this set of tires on my Porsche. Handling and comfort are fantastic. Haven't had them long enough to determine tread wear, but I am expecting improvement over the previous P Zero's. I would highly recommend these tires for any sports car. The only thing I find is these Michelins seem to have more road noise than the P Zeros. Not inexpensive...  Read More

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

To date, I think these Michelins are a very comfortable high-performance tire with excellent wet-weather traction. I I don't have enough miles or weather on them to evaluate longevity or snow performance, but I have driven them in dry and wet highway conditions, and they are very smooth-riding, have great wet and dry traction, and impart confidence in their...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus Z214

Having recently graduated to Hoosier R7s from R-Comps (Toyo R888s) on my E36 BMW M3 at the track (and LOVE them) I wanted to up the ante on my hot rod Porsche as well. Not able to fit Hoosiers to my current car set up I looked for something similar which would fit the car and these were the only candidates. The Hankooks are in no way directly comparable to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I had Cooper touring tires and I wanted more out of my life. My car also wanted more. I decided to get these tires and honestly they're the best tires ive ever driven. They grip good in the dry and pretty good in the wet. This isn't a soccer mom tire. Honestly after putting them on my Nissan Altima 2001 SE Sedan 2.4L 4cyl, my car feels like it's much faster.I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is the fourth vehicle I have put either the DWS06 or its predacessor the DWS on. I have been very pleased in each case. We have the DWS on our BMW Z3 and on our Porsche Boxster and had them on a previous Mazda 3. The new DWS 06 is a bit quieter and has a bit better turn in and retains the excellent ride and grip under all conditions other than snow &...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I am one of the X-5 owners who suffered through a set of run flats that were on the car when I bought it. A year ago this month I bought a set of the Continental DWS's, but did not have them installed on the car until this past April.What a difference and delighted I bought them. These tires performed extremely well all summer. They are quiet, smooth, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

These tires came stock on my new car. I previously had the older P Zeros Pirellis on my 2007 911 and did not really like them. They were fast wearing and did not let you know when you where getting close to losing traction. I replaced them with Michelin Super Sports and truly love these tires. I still have them on my 2007 (now my wife's car). I recently took...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I replaced my well worn OEM Pilot Super Sports on my 2013 BMW M5 after 48,000 miles of average to spirited driving with another set of Pilot Super Sports. This car is mainly my commuter car and 90% of it is on smooth highway roads in NJ. The reason why I was able to extract more miles out of these tires even though they are propelling a 560 + HP and 500 +...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

My Pirelli p zero were about shot on the rears and ok on front. They were awfully sticky for everyday use and very noise. I read about the Michelin super sports so took the plunge. Ride quality, grip and noise are night and day from Pirellis in a positive way. If you were track only then Pirellis would probably be fine, but not a good road tire. My car will...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP

Bought these tires for my Cayman S since it has no spare and I frequently drive far from tire stores (middle of Wyoming). They replaced the stock 19 inch 35 series stock tires, and ride no harsher than the original tires (replaced with 18 inch 40 series run flats). They are not loud, but are noticeable on rougher pavement. On I 25 north of Denver, which is...  Read More

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

My 2015 Boxster S came with 20 inch Pirrelli P Zero Max Performance Summer Tires. They provide satisfactory performance when its sunny and hot. When the temps start to drop in the spring and fall they become a poor tire, with increase in road noise and ride discomfort. So after some research I bought a set of Oz Racing Leggera HLT rims with the BF Goodrich...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I purchased these tires just in time for a solid snowfall to arrive ... not unusual in NE Ohio. Some previous critiques of the tire indicated they were a tad noisy (they're whisper quiet ... certainly better than the OEM tires on the car) and also that they were not quite as good as some others for traction (they are - again - especially compared to the OEM...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I use my 2006 Porsche Cayman S as a commuter car so I opted to go with an all-weather tire instead of the standard performance tires. I've been very pleased with the Goodyear Eagle F1 All-Seasons. Very confident traction in rain and wet conditions, there's slightly less grip in dry conditions compared to the performance tires but nothing that would make you...  Read More
