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

I have only had these tires for about 2 months (~3000 miles), but they are performing well. I purchased them as a set (with Enkei Raijin 19 wheels) and have been very satisfied so far. I am interested to find out how they will perform in the snow (Massachusetts) this coming winter, but I am having fun on them for now.   Read More

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

Within five miles of having these tyres installed on my 2015 Volkswagen GTI-S, I encountered a downpour and must say; my previous set of Pirelli P7 Cinturatos gripped quite well but were a tick tail happy in the wet. The BFGs were heads and shoulders above the Pirellis in the wet in keeping the back end planted.I then took my car through it's paces on a few...  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 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 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I only just mounted the wheels that hold these tire, and have begun to break them in (500 miles is suggested, but I think after 300 I have done the job already). Reason for break-in is to wear away the releasing agent that is used to remove the tire from its mold during manufacturing (Read Tire Rack R&A info...good stuff there).During my break in time I have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Falken Azenis RT615K+

I bought these as a track/autocross tire. For me, the deal on these tires was quite a bit chepaer than the Bridgestone RE71R or the Dunlop Star Spec, and being as it's the new version of a tire that Chump and Lemons cars run, I figured I would give up a little bit of grip and competitiveness in autocross/track days in exchange for durability for my budget as...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

Mind you, Tirerack did not give me a selection for back, windy roads, with high speeds; so I went with the auto cross driving selection. First impressions:Impressed. My little Corolla has never felt more comfortable and steady before. The handling is noticeably better than it was; therefore, I'm taking turns harder and at higher speeds, with more confidence....  Read More

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

This is an overall GREAT handling tire even better than my last Michelins I had. After a few days of driving I noticed that the tires were VERY LOUD. That is the only ONE problem, but it is not that big of a deal. I guess that is what must be compromised for great traction, grip, cornering abilities, stopping distance, and great pick up from a dead stop on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

Got these tires at the same time I went from 225/40-18 to 225/45-17 on 17x8 lightweight wheels. These tires are light too at 21 lbs ea. Ride quality has greatly improved at the same time wet and dry traction immensely improved! No more wheel spin- these just hook up and go. Most impressive is the wet traction however- been getting a lot of rain here in...  Read More

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

To date, I think these Michelins are a very comfortable high-performance tire with excellent wet-weather traction. I I don't have enough miles or weather on them to evaluate longevity or snow performance, but I have driven them in dry and wet highway conditions, and they are very smooth-riding, have great wet and dry traction, and impart confidence in their...  Read More

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

Compared to the stock Pirelli Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico tires, the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ in 255/45R20 size are better in every way. Most notably the ride comfort and road noise are excellent. Wet and dry traction are much improved over the Pirelli. There are not very many choices of tires in this size but regardless I am completely satisfied with these...  Read More

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

This Volvo S90 shipped with summer Pirelli P Zero tires on 20 wheels, but we needed all season tires and there aren't many choices in this size. We knew the 20 wheels and summer tires would be a problem when we bought the car. We tried to find a 19 option, but that didn't work and instead we arranged for Volvo to install Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+ tires,...  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 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 Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Just put a set these on my Infiniti G-37xS last week. Tire Rack shipped them to my Infiniti dealer who did the install. They balanced up beautifully without much weight. Just have about 250 miles on them so far and just tried them in the snow tonight. Pleasantly surprised at how well they did, considering these are not snows, but all-seasons. In terms of wet...  Read More

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

So I'm curious if other owners experience what I just did on these tires. Overall, I love the PS A/S 3's. They have great ride, feel and control. Problem is, I only got 11,000 miles on the rears as the center treads wore down to 2mm tread depth remaining.Since I do not carry a spare, and run-flats are like driving plywood tires, I elected to replace these...  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
