Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Vredestein Quatrac 5

I have been quite happy with this tire purchase. These Quatrac 5 were purchaces to replace a set Goodyear Integrity. There isn't much that's going to make it 20-year-old Camry sporty, but these tires have noticeably improved its handling. Overall grip and confidence is up on on both wet and dry roads; response and predictable are very good and in corners...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

We purchased these tires halfway through a 2600 mile trip from Texas to Virginia. They replaced a set of Michelin Latitude Tours that we were very happy with. But these are even better. They steer just slightly better - going through construction lane switches and concrete lane dividers is even more precise and stable. Impressive. They ride a hair more...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

When looking for tires to replace my stock run flats on my car I wanted to make sure they would handle well in the wet and dry since I would be pushing these tires on mountain roads. I ordered these tires because they were budget friendly and looked like they had great potential. The first time I drove on these tires I took my car out to the local twisty...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Tire model is an excellent tire for a All Season performance tire. I have purchased numerous sets of this model. Unfortunately the height of this time is not particularly comparable with my vehicle and 19¿ wheels. They seemed too tall and caused some drifting on the road, even when the steering was tight. I have returned the tires under the customer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport AS

Original equipment on 2016 Pilot EX. Tires seem quite noisy. Very poor traction in snow. Treadwear down to 3mm at 20,000 miles. Did not replace with these same tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I bought this tire to replace the Continental DWS-06 when I came to the South East, because I didn't expect to encounter any snow. I initially thought about purchasing the Michelin Pilot Super Sports or the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position again, but after driving a friend's M3 equipped with the Firestones, I bought 6 tires (2 front/4 rear) for less...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I have just over 4,000 miles on this set. These tires are amazing! A perfect match for my little sports car. My car doesn't go out to play in the rain much so I can't really comment on that but just to say they were fine. I didn't really go all out when it was raining. Now, in the dry - these tires stick like glue to the road. Wear has been great also. This...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I went with these tires looking for a sportier all season tire to replace the very old tires that were on my car when I got it, and I've been very satisfied to that end. They feel very precise at all levels of steering input and seem to have quite a bit of traction. I've yet to feel or hear traction breaking even under enthusiastic driving on backroads,...  Read More

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

Awesome Tire! This is the 2nd set of 4 that we purchased for our highlander. The 1st set went over 100K miles and still had tread wear left (but we replaced them because of the winter season). I will continue to purchase these tires for the highlander until it dies.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

I replaced the OEM tire on my 3.2 Q5 S-Line and couldn't be happier! These tires have exceeded my expectations in every way! I have not driven them in snow as I live in the south and have not had them through a hard winter but they have been great in every other area. Inspiring confidence in all conditions. I have seen some people rate them poorly for rain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

From Spring to Fall, I find the ride quality, handling, and traction to be quite good. The have good cornering grip provide a comfortable highway ride.Unfortunately, there were a few significant drawbacks with these tires that offset their strong performance in the wet/dry. After 42,500 miles, my dealer recommended I replace these tires soon. I was a bit...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I got these to replace the stock Pirellis on my Mustang GT. After a couple of hundred miles, these tires GRIPPED. Using the on board accelerometer, my old best launch was about 0.76G at the track. With these tires, I was able to pull 0.93G aired down to around 24psi. On the road, grip was fantastic before I started modifying the car. Now, I can't get any...  Read More

Tough to Decide? This Winter, Use Tire Rack's Tire Decision Guide.

It’s time. The winter slip and slide. And since you can’t sit winter out curled up by the fireplace sipping hot “cocoa,” you’re just going to have to get your tires right. Once you’ve driven on winter tires, you won’t feel the need to stay close to home and you won’t go back to an all-season tire in the winter ever again. We call it the “Ah-Ha Moment.” It’s...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Vredestein Quatrac 5

These tires are really good tires. Drove through two snow storms already one was pretty icy. Tires performed excellent. They are very quiet and much more responsive then the horrible OEM tires. Most likely will not last crazy long but they are not intended to. I have Michelin Primacy tires that are OEM on my Camry and they are very nice but I will also be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H426

These were OEM tires from Hyundai. These tires are poor quality, noisy on the road and poor traction on wet roads. I'm always scared to drive every time there's heavy rain or the road is wet. I'm planning to replace my tires this winter with Michelin.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

Bought a set if four about a month ago. After the trip home I noticed what I thought was an out of balance driver 's side front tire. I drive a lot of new , smooth as glass pavement. At 50 mph and above I perceived a small vibration driver's front. Had them all re-balanced at no cost thank goodness. Two were dead on and two needed .25 ounce weight added.The...  Read More

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

These replaced a set of PS2s on my Cayman R. I mostly use this car for track days but also drive it around town on occasion. Two track days last weekend on the new set. I was more than 3 seconds faster around Palmer Motorsports Park over the PS2s. I've also had the super sports on this track and would say the RE71R was about 2 seconds faster around his...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I'd like to start this review off by saying I hate when people review a tire when they haven't gone through the months, miles, and seasons first. 10,000 miles or less isn't even note-worthy of a review. stop wasting our time with these lame reviews!Now, back to my review after a current 26,000 miles and 2+ years worth of driving through ALL conditions here...  Read More

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

Bought these to replace some Bridgestone 960ASs; they were some great tires so I was loath to replace them. At 4/32 I didn't have much choice though. I am happy to report that, thus far, the Michelins are living up to all the hype. I haven't driven through a winter yet so I can't comment on ice or snow. In the wet they are pretty good though I still get some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk AS

I just had four Firestone Firehawk AS tires installed today. 245/45/20 size. Unfortunately, Tire Rack was out of stock, so I had to buy elsewhere. The tires are smooth and drive nice but I am a little disappointed in the noise they put out. They are a little loud. Nowhere near as loud as the Firehawk GT's they replaced, however. Hopefully, the tires will get...  Read More
