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

Actually kind of disappointed with this tire compared to the previous generation Altimax as an all season tire. Winter performance in regards to handling slush is the main complaint due to the change in the tread pattern. Tire wear is also disappointing, I'll be lucky to get 30K before they need replacing.   Read More

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

Now that I've had these tires for nearly a full year, I'm impressed! They're ability to perform at high levels in all kinds of weather, especially wet is amazing. These tires best perform at 34psi on the rear and 36 psi on the front. The grip for launches, steering response cornering haven't changed after 7 autocross events that have 6 runs at each event....  Read More

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

Coming from a older model Conti DW performance summer tire to the AS/3+ I found these to be near the same in 'performance' (handling) and comparable ride quality, plus the AS/3+'s have bit stiffer sidewall than the older Conti model so cornering is on par or maybe slightly better. Low noise and very good comfort/ride so far, 2 thumbs up. Will update report...  Read More

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

10,000x better than the Continental SSR RFT! Make the car so much smoother and quite without impacting handling. Like all the reviews say this is the best tire for people who want a high performance tire with light snow mobility. WILL buy again.   Read More

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

I had the original stock continental run flats that BMW (for some reason) puts on their cars. Because the tire is so hard it made the ride a little to hard and i felt every little bump in the road. I ended up having to replace the tires due to a bubble developing on the sidewall of one of the tires. And i chose to go with the Michelin pilot sport a/s 3...  Read More

Tire Rack Now Offers Cooper Tires

We often heard “do you carry Cooper tires?” Because of their restrictive distribution agreement, our response was always “no.” That’s all changed. We now offer Cooper’s Cobra Radial G/T performance tires and CS5 and CS3 touring tires, as well as Discover and Evolution truck tires, along with other lines used as Original Equipment on new vehicles. An American...  Read More

Bridgestone Driveguard Run-Flat Tires Installed on My BMW (First Impressions)

Since 2007, most BMW vehicles began rolling off the assembly line without a spare tire and instead came equipped with run-flat tires. What are run-flat tires? Run-flats tires look and function like standard tires, except that they are designed to allow a driver to continue to drive on them even after losing all air pressure. This means that in most...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Marathon Radial

These Tires are on my 24 ft travel trailer... they have a higher load rating and speed rating than the stock tires... I don't have many miles on them as of yet, but the difference when towing the trailer is drastic... it tracks very straight and true, with no hint what so ever of trailer sway... they also are not nearly as spongy, and seem to handle the...  Read More

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

Smooth, Very Smooth... As a new installation and only about 500 miles, all is Smooth, Quiet, and well balanced - Nice Ride! All is startin out just fine. Will get back at about 20K...   Read More

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

This is compared to Conti Extreme Contact DWS. After just about half treadlife (the S not worn yet) developed two sidewall bulges on both front tires due to crazy potholes here in the NYC tristate area. The contis were getting a bit noisy anyway - but all season traction could not compare. The Audi quattro with contis performed better in snow then wife's LR3...  Read More

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

Used for a work vehicle. I drive VERY spirited and high speeds at times - sometimes at long distances at VERY high speeds. I feel confident when driving spiritedly, due to the performance of these tires. In addition to the spirited driving and mileage put on these - compared to Firestone W- rated tires that I've had before, no wear has been noticeable on...  Read More

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

The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires outperform the Goodyear Eagles they replaced by a wide margin especially in ride quality and noise. The Goodyear's were excessively noisy and they rode like a solid rubber tire. The ride quality of the Michelin's belie the fact that they are run flat tires. If I had to list any area that the Goodyear's might be slightly...  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 Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

After several thousand irriatating miles with a set of Yokohama tires, I decided to go back to my original decision and purchase these Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 Plus and boy I am mad that I even tried a different tire. This is my first initial review so I will try to update as the mileage goes up on them, but I love these tires. First thing is to make sure...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Bought a set of Primacy MXM4s in January, 2016 when they were discounted to under $100/tire. They live up to the performance moniker in dry conditions only; I would not consider these all-season, nor would I purchase them again (unless the Michelin warranty provided a free, or deeply discounted, set due to the poor treadwear).I have a fairly average driving...  Read More

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

Previously had Michelin Pilot Exalto tires on the car and like them a lot for handling, steering response and turn-in. Exaltos were 9 years old and had started to be very noisy in the last year. ( Have another vehicle that I use and also use winter tires mounted on separate rims on the 04 TL, thus the reason that I had kept the Exaltos for 9 years.) The new...  Read More

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

I have put very few miles on these tires but the miles I have driven I am quite satisfied with the ride and feel.   Read More

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

I'd say that these are the best tires I've ever owned. I can't rate them for snow, because it hasn't snowed yet.   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

Best Tires for Honda CR-V (Part One)

Over five generations, the Honda CR-V has grown from a boxy, small SUV when first introduced in 1997, to the mature and civilized mid-size crossover vehicle that it is today. As the vehicle has grown, so has it's tire and wheelsize. 15-inch wheels and tires were used on the first-generation, while new CR-Vs roll off of the assembly line on 17-inch or...  Read More
