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

Purchased and installed these tires to replace the summer only tires that came with the performance package. Definitely a difference between the two. Cold weather traction and traction in snow and ice are exceptional, even for an all season tire. Only have 2500 miles on them so far so will have to update the review once more miles are put on the tires. I...  Read More

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

My last set of tires were winter tires. I live in Denver and took a risk buying these tires for winter and summer since winter tires noticeably reduce performance. I put these on and for about a month drove on dry pavement and my car seems to accelerate faster and handle way better. I love these tires. We had a dry November but it has snowed a bunch since....  Read More

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

At long last, I've found my tire: an ultra high performance all-season tire that optimizes the performance of Audi's Quattro AWD on trips to the mountains, without numbing the car's handling and steering response on the dry roads that dominate daily driving here in LA. I've only had the Michelins a couple weeks, but immediately took them on a 1,000 mile road...  Read More

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

I recently purchased this set of tires for a second/winter set of wheels for my MX-5. My MX-5 is my year-round daily driver, so having the second set is a necessity. My summer tires are Bridgestone S-04 Pole Positions that came with the car when I purchased it 2 months ago. It was like driving a block of ice on an ice skating rink. So, I had to make a...  Read More

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

My third set of General Altimax RT43's. First set took an ancient Saturn SC2 and made it drive decently with great traction in all weather, good noise, and cornering, and trend lasted very well. Second set were onto Subaru outback that died a week after buying, but tires were an improvement.Third set is now on Mazda 2012 that had Bridgestone...  Read More

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

I purchased these tires after reading the online reviews about this tire and I have been nothing but impressed so far. These tires are replacing a set of Bridgestone Potenza RE 970 UHP (235/45 WR 17) tires for my 05 Acura TL with the 6 speed manual transmission. I have only had them for 1,700 miles so far but they have been a noticeable improvement over the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

The tires are OE with the Fusion and have been some of the better tires I've owned . Although my usual style of driving is not spirited ; the car has been driven that way in different road and weather conditions so that I would know what to expect . These tires have performed very well . My limited exposure to freezing rain and light snow ( 1 1/2 ) has been...  Read More

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

So I bought these set of tires for my 2017 WRX (Just got her over the summer). I had to replace the stock summer tires with all seasons because I live in Putnam County, New York and we do get a good amount of snow every year. We had about 8 inches of snow the past weekend and I had to take her out, the tires performed better than ever. I was shredding...  Read More

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

I installed these tires a few weeks ago. Since that time I experienced heavy rain, dry roads and heavy slushy snow. I like these tires a lot! I was shocked by how good they were in two inches of heavy, sloppy wet snow. These tires handle better than the Continental that came on the vehicle new. The ride is slightly stiffer but its not something the average...  Read More

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

I've accumulated miles quickly on these outstanding performance tires; great wear characteristics. Quiet and smooth rolling for such capable tires. Excellent dry cornering stability, good in heavy rain at highway speed. They struggle to clear tread in deep snow (4+ inches); My car, in particular, has very small fender clearance, which easily packs with wet...  Read More

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

The Michelin Sport A/S 3+ are super sticky on 328i 2010 Sport suspension. I staggered tires to match sports package, which was not set up prior to used car purchase. The previous owner did the economic non sport setup where all tires were the same size. The new setup increases car performance in ways I love. It has improve my ride comfort (luxury-goes over...  Read More

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

First off, I am no tire expert. Second, I have only driven these tires for 800 miles. Third, I am not a professional driver, I have never tracked a car, and I have never had any track/racing lessons. I live in New York City and do most of my driving on the weekends getting out of the city to either eastern Long Island or upstate New York. I seldom drive...  Read More

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

This may be just as much a nod to downsizing as it is to this tire, but I do not want to minimize the ride quality improvement over the factory Hankook 19 tires that came on my AWD 300. They have been great tires. But moving down to 18 wheels w/ these 225/60R18 Sumitomo's provided a noticeable improvement in ride quality...this set up makes uneven pavement...  Read More

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

I bought 2 of these Michelin tires as winter was approching and I was still running the Michelin pilot super sport which are summer tires. First of let me say the traction is fantastic. Better than a set of half worn pss tires. The pilot super sports just don't do as well in the cold temps. These are awesome and so quiet. I can't even hear them and the ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Noticed I've already put 25,000 miles on these tires over the last year so I decided to write a review. Overall really enjoying them. To break it down in quick categories: Dry: as good as I can ask for, the car holds to whatever I put it through, and even more speed than I am comfortable with at times.Wet: Less traction than dry at slow speeds, easier to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I bought this vehicle used this past summer and it came with a set of Continentals. I knew when I saw them they were not going to be good because I had a really bad experience with the same tires on a previous car. I put up with them for a while. And even though they had a few thousand miles left on them the lack of wet traction was actually dangerous. Plus...  Read More

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

First impression: Awesome! Just had them installed couple days ago and what a difference over the stock summer 19 Continental's. I went w/ a 245 over stock 235's and picked up more rubber =Grip, tires look great too. My S3 has Magna-ride so I tried different ride settings and soo smooth.I have not pushed them, but from what I drove some curves/corners very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z II

How does this tire rate currently at 3.9 stars? This is without a doubt the worst set of tires I have every wasted my money on. Purchased as summer tires for the car that goes back and forth on errands, and hauling the family around. There's no high speed cornering, excessive breaking or even high speeds going on in this car. We got one season out of them...  Read More

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

Great value for the money. Pros: -excellent ride quality -very quiet -good wet traction -outstanding snow traction Cons: -squirmy -almost zero feedback/road feel -slow to respondThese tires have very tall, small tread blocks with deep channels in between. The excellent wet traction, even in deep water, and unbelievably good snow grip (almost on par with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 Plus (H- or V-Speed Rated)

After 46,320 miles of very aggressive high speed (typically 85 mph) highway and spirited city driving the tire shop says I still have about half the thread left. Tires were worn only on the inside because car was out of allignment. I was going to upgrade to a larger wheel size but with such good thread wear I am buying another set of these OEM tires.   Read More
