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 Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

My 2014 Audi A4 came with Continental ContiSportContact 3 and they lasted for only a year (mainly because of my driving style). Then I replaced all 4 tires with 255/35ZR-19 CONTINENTAL EXTREMECONTACT DWS 06 XL and even after 15000+ miles of extreme driving, they are holding good. I absolutely love them and would recommend them to people who like to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Bought these as replacements for the OEM Kumhos that came with my car... The Kumhos were ok as long as it wasn't too wet out. They were horrible in the snow... but these Continental PureContacts were very highly rated and that turned out to be true.This is a fantastic tire - great traction in the rain and light snow... and quiet as well. These are a bargain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I have about 22-23k on this DriveGuard tires, and I can honestly say they are THE BEST tires I've ever owned. This car came with Continental tires from the factory, and they worked, but didn't do anything specially great. I would consider them a middle of the road tire. Since then I had a set of Goodyear's which had a good price, but were really sub standard...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I've done a lot of work on my car - engine now produces 380 hp, performance suspension, Brembo brakes, sport wheels, so I needed high performance tires to go with it. At the same time, I didn't want tires that would wear too fast, so ultra performance and race tires were out. The Pilot Sports seem to fit the bill.Cornering is excellent and very easily...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Replaced the OEM installed Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires with only 13,000 miles on the clock and installed the new Michelin Pilot 4S tires. I've had prior experience with some Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires, as well as two sets of Michelin PSS tires on different cars, and Michelin knocked it out of the park again.Summary = Superb traction and handling...  Read More

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

My overall review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP 2 A/S is that they are ideally suited for the VW GTI.These tires replaced the original Pirelli's at 46000 miles. I normally use dedicated snow tires for nearly half of the year but have driven on the BFG tires since December. My impression are in comparison to the Pirellis on the stock GTI suspension...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Installing these tires immediately improved everything I liked about my car. Replacing the original equipment Michelin Primacy MXM4 ZP runflats with the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 dramatically improved the ride and noise - no more crashing over bumps that jarred me and scared my passengers. Regular road noise went way down and the tramlining went...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I purchased these tires to replace some balding Radar RPX900 tires on my corolla wagon. With the worn tires, there was a humming noise I kept hearing, which lead me to believe that it was the wheel bearings. Also, traction on the old tires were pretty much gone. As soon as I put on these new General AltiMAX RT43 tires on, it was like had been given a new...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Long Trail T/A Tour

This tire replaced the OEM Michelin's on my company car. They are excellent in light to heavy rain and light snow. The only thing about them is they are slightly noisy compared to the Michelin's. As far as tread wear goes its a little too early to tell but I'm having positive vibes it will be good.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I waited several months to post this review because I wanted to see how these tires handled my New England winter. I was looking for that utopia of both great summer and winter performance - at speed - and would last a while. I was replacing some very expensive Michelin's which were 90% of the way to that goal - but wore out quickly (which I accept for what...  Read More

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

Replaced a set of Bridgestone driveguard RFTs the dealer threw on my car to replace the OEMs. Wow, what a huge difference going from a run of the mill grand touring tire to a UHP tire like this. The car feels like it accelerates faster, insane grip around the corners. Heavy rain no problem. Did a run up a mountain where it got it got as cold as 14 at the top...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

I did not order my Focus RS with the winter wheel and tire package from the factory - it was not an option for my early order. But when I found out that the factory winter wheel and tire package came with this specific tire, I decided to buy a set of 18 wheels with the Alpins mounted from Tire Rack. I could not be happier with my choice - Ford chose these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

(GTI with Performance Pkg-6sp manual) Initial Review 2500mi Tires purchased to replace OEM All Season Hankook H Rated VENTUS S1 NOBLE2. (Planning to purchase Goodyear PSS summer tires in the spring.)This has been a challenging winter in Chicago area with significant snow, ice and very low temperatures. The Pirelli Scotto3 (non-run flat) have performed with...  Read More

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

I bought this tire to replace OEM Toyo which wore out at 30000 miles. It is about the same in noise level, almost nothing, the tire gives a more truck like ride, a little firmer than the Toyo's. Even though I have only put on 500 miles, I like the tire. Light snow is no problem, haven't had a chance yet to evaluate the tire in deep snow. Gravel roads it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Very happy with these tires. Replaced the stock Goodyear's on my G37x. Excellent dry weather traction. Even more impressive is the wet and light snow traction. Traction feels nearly as good as dry traction, an impressive feat (have not had an opportunity to try deep snow yet). Also very happy with the extremely smooth and quiet ride from these tires. Would...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

I bought the Continental WinterContact tires mounted on 17 Axis Modle Five gunmetal wheels from Tire Rack as seasonal replacements that I can swap in my garage. The wheels look better than my stock Audi S3 18 wheels. I mounted them three weeks ago and have already driven in three snow storms in Portland, Oregon and Washington. I'm shocked at how well they...  Read More

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

Before I purchase anything I usually do an extensive online research on anything that involves automobiles. After seeing the selection of tires that would suite my needs I decided to go for UHP tires & went on a few sites comparing prices & so on. Decided to purchase the BFGoodrich G-Force Comp 2 A/S due to the fact that the stock tires(Goodyear Eagle RS-A)...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact UHP

I would definitely purchase another set. These ones replaced same tire but in 285/45 size. I went up to 295 because at the time they were less expensive than the 285 size that were available. For this truck, I think that 285 is the better option.I have a winter tire set so I use these only during the non-winter season. Consequently, my posted 10K on these...  Read More
