Update: After 10,000 miles i am still loving these. I run my civic hard, and i have no complaints. i have rotated them 2 times ( every 5k) and it is doing great.   Read More

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

These tires replaced the original Bridgestone Potenza's (high performance, summer) that came with the G37. They are a noticeable step up in performance, primarily in the wet, compared to the Bridgestones. They are also quieter, though that may not be an accurate comparison as the Bridgestones were at the end of their life compared to the new Michelin's. This...  Read More

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

Finally threw my second set of 4 Bridgestone Turanza EL4 run flat in the dumpster that were nor completely worn. I just could not take the noise and harsh ride any longer. My BMW 335xi is now fun to drive again. I have not had them long enough to have driven them in heavy rain or snow, but they are quiet and smooth.   Read More

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

The BRZ acts completely different. The first day I drove up and down the mountain in the rain. I drove pretty conservative because I didn't know how they would perform (the old tires were bald and had no wet traction at all), but slowly I started pushing further into the curves and was surprised how much wet traction I had.One of the things I always wished I...  Read More

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

I'm very please with this tire. Performance is more than adequate for this car (high suspension, but has heavier sways and is chipped). Ride comfort is excellent and the tire is plenty quiet for me. I previous had a set of undersized Michelin Pilot Super Sports on this car and don't feel I have lost any performance with the A/S 3+ on this car.   Read More

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

Great Tires that get me to and from work, but also let me have some fun when I want to.   Read More

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

I bought this set to replace my original factory Bridgestone RE97AS. Those were very noisy, horrible rain traction and wore uneven. I put this set of Michelins on my car at 60,500. They come with 10/32 tread new and I now have 7/32 tread with my car having 100,852 miles. These tires are wearing even, very low noise and the traction is unbelievable on wet or...  Read More

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

the Michelin pilot sport a/3 has certainly met all of my expectations. in addition to the excellent road holding ability, these tires also deal very well with wet weather situations. one final note...the pilot sport performs with ease and keeps its rubber on for a long, long time. thank you Michelin!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Been buying tires for 30+ years now and this is the best all season tire I've ever owned. The Primacy MXM4 isn't perfect nor even best in class in any single category, but is a standout because it excels in all (disclaimer: I don't live in the snow belt and haven't driven them in snow). The tire provides a superb balance between ride comfort and control......  Read More

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

On my 2015 GTI this tire has performed very well in dry and wet conditions. Steering responsiveness and handling are excellent. They are a little noisy and the ride is firm but this is a small price for the fun I have had with these on winding mountain roads. However, while I wasn't expecting snow tires I wanted at least acceptable traction in light snow....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Fantastic tire and with out a doubt the best tires I have purchased for this vehicle. I have gone through Bridgestone 46k miles. BFG 35k miles, Falken 15k miles. These tires have about 10k miles on them and I still have 10/32 tread, at this rate I should see about 80k before they get to 3/32. These tires are also great in the wet and handle highway speeds...  Read More

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

Purchased these tires because I wanted a great all around tire for the Northwest where we get a lot of rain and a little snow. I wanted a quiet tire that performed well. I previously had the Goodyear Tripletreds and they provided amazing traction but were a pretty noisy. After reading reviews I went with the General Altimax rt43 which was made in America for...  Read More

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

These tires replace the OEM Continentals at 50K miles, which was probably a few thousand past needing replaced. These tires have been rotated regularly about every 5K miles with oil changes, only rebalanced once recently. They do great in the snow, I work second shift so I tend to be driving home in some adverse conditions during the winter, with the state...  Read More

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

I purchased those tires because of my dad high recommended to get those tires because of he had all tires on his few cars. Guess what? When I installed with new rims with tires, the ride is so smoothing and comfortable. I would like buying those tires when it time for replace.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature II (T-Speed Rated)

I replaced a set of the original Dunlop Signature's with these Signature II's. I got just over 95,000 out of the originals so I figured I would try the updated version and I couldnt be happier. They are super smooth, quiet, and have great traction. Theyre obviously not a sporty tire, but if you drive a lot and need a good tire that will last 100k you can go...  Read More

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

My Honda EX-L originally came with Michelin Pilots. On my previous car I had General Altimas and was completely satisfied and hoped that the new RT43 would stand up as well. The RT43 seems to be bit harder thus a bit more road noise, but still the best tire all around for safety, handling, traction, comfort, and durability. I can't fault them in any way, and...  Read More

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

Over all those are good tires, if you are deaf. They are so loud that you do not hear your thoughts while driving. More miles you have on them louder they are. Noisiness of those tired eliminate them from normal usage. After about 10k miles I'm replacing them.   Read More

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

I just but these tires on my bmw 750i. I can not report on tread life at this time, but I can tell you that all my friends and I can not believe the difference in the ride. It is like a different car. Feels like just came off showroom floor. Had Pirelli p-zero on it before. These sumitomo blows the Pirelli out of the water. I am amazed in the difference it...  Read More

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

this is my first set of Bridgestone's and with a $70 rebate I decided to give them a try. I'm going from a 215/70/16 to a 235/55/18 lower profile tire w/OEM Xtreme wheels. I actually like the ride of the 16" oem set of generals HT's, so in comparison the ride is almost identical, which is imo is what I was hoping for. Handling and cornering are greatly...  Read More

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

I bought these based on the testing results and reviews published on TireRack.com after getting only 20,000 miles out of the Dunlop SP31 A/S that the factory had installed. I was interested in a low rolling resistance tire that handled reasonable well, was safe, wouldn't break the bank, and would last a long time. These tires have fared well on those...  Read More
