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

1000 miles on this set of tires and I can already tell that it is way better than OE Pirelli tire. Dry performance is quiet impressive, it sticks to the surface of the road like crazy. During rain it holds pretty good without any signs of hydroplaning. It is does create some kind of noise which is fine with me. So far so good.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Vredestein Sprint Classic

This is the second set of Vredestein Sprint Classics on my '64 Jaguar E-Type, and I love these tires. The car is used for autocross (different tires), mountain driving, and long backroads tours. These tires are the best for this car. Trust me, with stock wheels going to wider tires will only hurt performance and handling. Previously I used Michelin XVS which...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Vredestein Sprint Classic

It has become very hard to find 205/15 tires anywhere. Much less with a tread compound that provides traction in wet and dry, handling, low noise and good tread wear. These do it all plus they look period appropriate for 50s and 60s sports cars.I drive my XKE several thousand miles a year on vintage sports car rallies on scenic California back roads. So...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

What is your life worth?Bridgestone Blizzaks are a phenomenal snow/ice tire. These tires (mount 4 tires, never 2) can save your life...literally. Better traction, stopping, accident avoidance, reliability to get where your going in an emergency all add up to better safety. Simply the best thing you can do to protect your car, your life and those of others...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

Had these on my wife's car for about 45,000 miles and all 4 would look like they would have another 40,000 on them easily if it had not been for an incompetent mechanic who messed up the alignment and trashed the outside shoulders on the front tires. Have been in deep snow, mud and off road on these tires and never had an issue. Very happy with these tires   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Spec

I moved from the factory 205-40/17 tire size Bridgestone RE-050s to the Direzza ZII*-spec in 205-50/15 for both a reduction in unsprung weight and increased sidewall height to help combat the rough roads in Vermont while still maintaining the sharp handling of the Fiesta ST. Sadly I can say, that though the overall grip is quite comparable between the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Spec

I'm driving a Miata with the factory R package and don't notice any more noise or a rougher ride from these tires than any other tires I've had on this car in the past 19 years. They have superior grip and much sharper turn in response than my previous tires, Toyo T1R (a very disappointing tire) and have better overall grip than my previous favorite tires on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact SSR

These are my first experience with run flats and I only have them on my car because BMW seems to sell all their cars with run flats. So these tires are accumulating a lot of negatives with me. The are hard/harsh and extremely loud. At times it literally sounds like a helicopter is under my car. In terms of being hard it feels like the car is on plastic...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

Stock tires that came with vehicle, we purchased the car 10,000 miles ago so we pretty much got the short end of the stick with the tires. But based off on 38,000 miles, they are worn down to the bone, literally hovering around 2/32. My girlfriend and I drive like bats out of -------- sometimes but mostly it's cruising and high end speeds on the expressway....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015

I bought this tire for my LR2 because there are basically no other A/T options for my tire size: 235/60/18. I don't go off-roading, but I do leave the road from time-to-time and live close enough to snow country that I wanted to be able to drive into snow without having to slap chains on at the first sign of trouble.So, my first impression was that the tires...  Read More

Truck Tires: Off-Road Tires and Mud Tires / Mudding Tires Versus All-Terrain Tires

If you have a truck or rugged SUV that you often drive off of the beaten path, then you should consider using tires that are more aggressive than standard Highway All-Season tires or Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tires. How much more aggressive do should you consider? That depends on how much off-road driving you'll be doing and how severe your...  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 Bridgestone Ecopia EP600

I'm sorry there is only one tire alternative for the i3. I have had road hazard problems on both rear tires, however, (I know I'm in the minority) my front tires have turned over 35,000 and are at the 3/32 buy new tires point. I have read many comments of people wearing out tires very early on. I don't understand. But I do drive the vehicle non-aggressively....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

I drive an 03 Z06 Vette. It's my track car but it is street legal, I drive it to/from the track. It's modified for the track in terms of suspension, cooling, brakes etc. Drive train is stock. I do about 25-35 track days per season in the instructor groups. Tracks I drive are WGI, NJMP, LR, Pocono, SP, Palmer.A few years ago, I sold my dedicated race car had...  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 Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Reading the review, I concluded this was the best bang for the buck for my daily driver. Handling performance under both wet and dry conditions is superb and it keeps you in contact with the feel of the road. The grip is excellent on twisting back roads out on the countryside. The only thing unexpected was the amount of road noise. I know they're all-season,...  Read More
