Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Learned a lesson from my previous Mini-S and took my new car directly from the dealer to the installer to dump the Dunlap run flats with Michelin Super Sports. In just those 20-some miles, the improvement between the ride there vs. the ride back was amazing. Much smoother, much quieter, cornered like it was on rails. I wondered how these would wear.Well,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

Original set of tires. These are on my daughter's 2015 Chevy Equinox FWD. She does 90% highway driving and have a touch over 72,000 (volleyball) miles on these tires with tread still left. Tire rides good; noise level good; general handling is good. They don't handle the water as well as other tires I have used in the past BUT not bad. We do keep nitro in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Rugged Trail T/A

The Goodrich Rugged Trail T/A LT245/75R17 121/118R was the original equipment tire on my Ford F-150. I replaced them with the same tire after 65k on the 1st set and 65k on the second set. I'm currently buying the same tire for my 3rd set of tires at 130k+ miles. They have good traction and good wear. Keep the truck aligned and the tires rotated and balanced...  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 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ ZP (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

This is my second set of Michelin sport all season tires for my 2008 Corvette. The last set lasted five years and I only got rid of them after 15,000 miles because I had picked up nails in both rear tires that could not be patched. If you are going to put all season tires on your Corvette, these are an excellent choice. However, as they get worn down,...  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 Energy Saver A/S

We have run two sets of these tires on minivans...VW Routan and Chrysler T&C. Very quiet tire, excellent ride, good handling, I'm mean, this is a minivan not a 535 BMW. Traction is adequate, snow is tough on any all season tire, I could get another 10,000 miles on these but will replace soon. 60,000 on any tire is excellent...65% in town driving, 35%...  Read More

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

I recently replaced my OEM Goodyears with these tires after 23,000 miles, and it's like I'm driving a new car. The new tires are significantly quieter with much better grip, particularly in wet weather. I've driven in a few rain storms since switching tires, and never did I feel the same slippage that I did with the original tires. I haven't driven in snow...  Read More

Newer is Better: Introducing the Ultra High Performance All-Season General G-MAX AS-05

Founded in 1915, General Tire has been making tires for over 100 years. That knowledge base improved even more in 1987 when General was purchased by a leading German-tire manufacturer. This infusion of capital and technology has helped General continue to make great tires at a very reasonable prices.   One such General tire that has tested well and impressed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender T+H

These are replacing the Michelin Energy Saver tires that came factory installed on the car when new. I live in the Midwest and those tires were terrible in any winter weather. I chose the Michelin Defender T+H due to the strong name that is Michelin, tread wear warranty, and tire tread depth of 10/32 compared to the 8/32 on the Premier A/S tires . After 50...  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 Continental ContiProContact SSR

These are my first experience with run flats and I only have them on my car because BMW seems to sell all their cars with run flats. So these tires are accumulating a lot of negatives with me. The are hard/harsh and extremely loud. At times it literally sounds like a helicopter is under my car. In terms of being hard it feels like the car is on plastic...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015

I bought this tire for my LR2 because there are basically no other A/T options for my tire size: 235/60/18. I don't go off-roading, but I do leave the road from time-to-time and live close enough to snow country that I wanted to be able to drive into snow without having to slap chains on at the first sign of trouble.So, my first impression was that the tires...  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

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

I drive an 03 Z06 Vette. It's my track car but it is street legal, I drive it to/from the track. It's modified for the track in terms of suspension, cooling, brakes etc. Drive train is stock. I do about 25-35 track days per season in the instructor groups. Tracks I drive are WGI, NJMP, LR, Pocono, SP, Palmer.A few years ago, I sold my dedicated race car had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I purchased this minivan 8 months ago to replace my '99 Town & Country minivan, looking for improved mileage ( I was getting 20-23 US MPG highway with the old van, new one rated at 25 US MPG = 9.40 L/100 km). I was initially disappointed with the OEM tires, getting between 9.5 and 11 L/100 km highway, or about 21.4 to 24.8 US MPG. Then I bought these tires....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Bought these tires based on wet performance reviews. South Florida climate demands good wet and dry traction, and these tires deliver. I also wanted a smooth, quiet ride for the Town Car, and BONUS! these were also highly rated for comfort. Much more quiet and smooth than the Goodyear tires they replaced, MUCH longer tread life, far better traction...  Read More

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

With a combination of highway daily driving and backroad traveling I HIGHLY recommend these tires as a replacement for the Goodyears that came on the car new. I destroyed the first set within the first 7000 miles. No, they do not grip quite as well as the highly focused Goodyears that came on the car, however, the slight amount of grip given up is well worth...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Just got pre-owned 2015 BMW 640xi Gran Sport with 5,000 miles. Came with original Eagle run flat tires. These tires have an awful reputation and my previous experience with OEM Goodyear Eagle tires of all types has been very negative- poor wear, no mileage warranty and noisy. Did a lot of research and discovered the Bridgestone Drive Guard Grand Touring Run...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

These tires came OE on our 2015 Buick Encore and they are very noisy. As always, stock OE tires are garbage. We'll Probably buy another brand when we have to replace them.   Read More
