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 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 Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I bought a set of these for the 1991 subaru wagon I have owned for the last 15 years. To say I know the cars handling quirks and what to expect is pretty much a no brainer after 100.000 miles with it. I upgraded to 16 wheels at the same time I bought the tires because the tire options in the factory size are few. I wanted something cost effective but with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Enhance C/X

Tread wear is really good. These tires performed very well for about 7 months and after that I experienced some degradation but I drive hard. Once I toned down my aggressive driving style, I am still able to get good performance out of them even on wet roads. I would rate these tires all around very-good to excellent. Best tires I have had and that includes...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo Encounter HT

Was a little unsure about buying these tires due to the low price and my lack of knowledge of the brand. The Good Year Wrangler SRA's that came on the truck did great with no complaints and really no reason to change. The reviews on Tirerack.com were so great and the price so low I figured I would give them a try. I had the tires shipped to my home. When...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA31

2017 Chevy Spark new in Feb 2017; stick shift. Tires are as sporty as they come (I mostly drive compacts and subcompacts such as VW/Sonic/Honda) and I'm fussy enough about tires to have, in the past, replaced new OEM tires that were optimized for cheapness not performance (for example, with Sumitomo's on one Dodge Neon). So far - and there's been no rain in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Laufenn S FIT AS

I wish they have this size on my rear tires, I ended up getting sumitro's, now that I needed the front tires, I decided get same as sumitomo's to my surprise, it's noisier, I plan to buy this for my accord and civic, they have good tread wear, considering how heavy my s class is, I got 55k miles out of it.   Read More

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

Installed on a 2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i AWD. In upstate NY/ Northern NY we have true all season weather, and I think these tires handle it very well, especially for the price! Had no balancing issues after the first mount and balance. The only thing I have slightly noticed is when it's cold outside (sub-freezing to freezing temps) the tire gets a slight flat...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

BEST SUMMER TIRES EVER. Save yourself the time and just buy them. I've had Kumho, Sumitomo, Goodyear, Pirelli, Bridgestone and a lot of the Michelin's before the PS4. The PS4's are light years ahead. Unbelievable traction in all conditions, even at the limits. Yet somehow they are super quiet and the ride quality is amazing. Soft, supple even. I have them on...  Read More

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

Replaced OEM Goodyear LS 2 and these are a significant improvement! Even with hard, spirited acceleration, they do not break loose or engage the traction control. Great grip in dry and they are quiet and smooth riding, even over railroad tracks. This smoother, quieter ride could be due to these being new 235 50 as opposed to the original 225 50's, however,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I bought these tires at the end of the Winter in April of 2016. We ended up having a snowstorm which put about 3 inches of snow on the roads and I had just switched from my Michelin X-ice Xi3's to these tires. I was really impressed with how well they handled the snow. Granted, they were brand new, and they were still no match for my Xi3's, but they did...  Read More

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

Nice price, and smooth ride but mushy in the corners. It is a more comfortable ride than my Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus, but much softer sidewalls, and cornering is definitely affected. But with potholes in Kentucky chewing up and spitting out my Michelins, (now out of production), I needed a more economical choice. We'll see how it handles snow this...  Read More

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

I drive for UBER and after researching tires and shopping around I chose this tire based on and existing comparing test available from TireRack. I put on about 3000 miles a month on these tires (27,000 total since I bought them in March) but I service the car every 5K miles and make sure tires are rotated. Its an excellent tire, quiet, handles well,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

While I have just recently had the tires installed I have found them to be very good and better than the Continentals that came with the car. So far all aspects of the tire have been better that the original tires and I would not hesitate to purchase them again. I did have a minor vibration issue and found that the shop that installed the tires did not...  Read More

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

Bought them because they are a little less money, but as it turns out it was a nice surprise . I thought they were going to be rather loud, but after driving on them for a few weeks, they have quieted down tremendously. I had excellent traction on wet roads and I looking forward to winter driving with these. Maybe not a Michelein but a sound buy.   Read More

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

How could I possibly lose with a speed-rated all-season tire? Not. Looking for a less expensive replacement for BFG touring tires, I found these at Tire Rack. Reviews were good and price was perfect. I went for it. Tires look great with a nice sidewall profile and design. Asymmetrical tread design looks advanced but does it work? You betcha it does.They tend...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo Touring LS H

I think these tires are a good value. They ride no different or make more or less noise then the originals set. I have drove my car in light snow, heavy rain and had no problems and one time my driveway had a 1/2 inch of ice on it and had no problems just put it in drive and go but my drive is mostly flat also. I will defiantly use tire rack from now on I...  Read More

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

I just replaced Sumitomos with the Michelin AS 3+ the difference is amazing. I now get traction instead of wheel spin even on wet surfaces, they are so quiet I can hear my engine or my cell phone. These tires are a great choice, well worth the price.   Read More
