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 Michelin Defender T+H

These are replacing the Michelin Energy Saver tires that came factory installed on the car when new. I live in the Midwest and those tires were terrible in any winter weather. I chose the Michelin Defender T+H due to the strong name that is Michelin, tread wear warranty, and tire tread depth of 10/32 compared to the 8/32 on the Premier A/S tires . After 50...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

This is an E-Load rated tire, meaning that they're a little heavy and overkill for my smaller 4x4 Tacoma. However, I think it's the reason they've held up so incredibly well- the little casting hairs are still visible on the treads. My friend has larger 33 tires on his diesel 2500 Silverado, and they're a lot more worn down. I will acknowledge that my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

As for that Snowflake rating: Plenty of reviews talk about the the K02's as great tires but a lot of people are buying these expecting them to compete with Blizzaks as a winter tire, I will tell you that there is absolutely no comparison to a dedicated set of winter tires for most winter conditions. They are far superior to a mud tires in any winter...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

4000 miles in, nothing bad to say about these tires yet. They haven't seen a winter yet, so snow and ice ratings weren't answered. Definitely quiet and smooth riding.   Read More

Whether you own a boat, jet skis, ATVs, race cars or dirt bikes, you probably own a trailer that you use to transport these vehicles.   While checking the condition of your trailer, be sure to take some time...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Tire size is 215/45-17, the OEM spec'd size. The feedback here is after 52k+ miles on the tires. I've had the tires since Jan-2016 and average 3400 miles/month or 40.8k miles/annum. The review is not as comprehensive as I would like because we had a light snow the past winter. To reflect this, I had to leave the heavy snow and ice ratings as N/A.The feedback...  Read More

What Tires Are on a Lexus 2017 RX350?

In the luxury midsize SUV market, the Lexus RX350 ranks as one of the best. It’s easy to see why thanks to a great looking interior, spacious room for the driver and passengers, good power and impressive standard features. With a 295-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine, the RX350’s tires need to be ready to handle that power and translate it into comfort and...  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 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I bought a set of the Michelin Pilot A/S 3+ V rated tires to replace asset of A/S 3 Y rated tires. As the older tires wore they started to tramline horribly - to the point that they were scary to drive on bad freeways. I was concerned about dropping from ultra high performance (Y) to high performance (V). So far so good. I drove from Seattle to Portland in...  Read More

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

I purchased these tires to replace some balding Radar RPX900 tires on my corolla wagon. With the worn tires, there was a humming noise I kept hearing, which lead me to believe that it was the wheel bearings. Also, traction on the old tires were pretty much gone. As soon as I put on these new General AltiMAX RT43 tires on, it was like had been given a new...  Read More

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

After going last winter on my stock PSS tires (not the best idea I've had), I got a set of all seasons for the winter. The tires are staggered like my summers (225/245). Our one snow event this year was a week before the tires arrived, but I've had the tires in freezing temps, rain, and a paced event at Virginia International Raceway. The tires were better...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

Living in western Oregon, the question we ask about winter tires is this: 'What's the best-performing tire for 35 F and pouring rain?' We see ice frequently, but not a lot of snow. The other thing to understand is that our climate is mild, both winter and summer. So our 'summer tire season' (consistently over 45 F in the mornings) is barely 5 months long,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Low mileage so far but we had 70 degrees in February, followed by 10 inches of snow and some icy conditions then rain. Theses P7s handled everything very well. In fact In the snow they seemed as good as the Continental Winter Contacts they replaced but with a much quieter well balanced ride. My Jetta Sportwagon has no sport in it's handling demeanor but the...  Read More

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

I looked long and hard about 3-4 years ago for a new set of shoes for my 2010 Infinite M35X, and thought these looked like the best bang for the buck...and I have not been disappointed. They only allowed me to rate myself as spirited, but it was a lot closer to psychotic with delusions of grandeur that he's speed racer in his old man car before I started...  Read More

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

I now know how the other half live! What an incredible difference. I bought these to replace the OEM equipped Goodyear Eagles, which were acceptable in most driving conditions, but brutal in winter. I started to wonder if it was the car. Nope, definitely the tires! It is not surprising to roll off the driveway and onto a snow covered road in our development...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T RH-S

These Bridgestone Dueler AT RH-S tires came stock from the factory (P265/65R18 OWL) on my 2009 Silverado Z71 crew cab. Overall, during 51,000+ miles and 6 years, I would rate them as maybe a little better than average. These tires have never pulled a trailer or hauled a load in the bed, and they've been used 50% city/40% highway/10% gravel. I am a stickler...  Read More

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

Bought them because they are a little less money, but as it turns out it was a nice surprise . I thought they were going to be rather loud, but after driving on them for a few weeks, they have quieted down tremendously. I had excellent traction on wet roads and I looking forward to winter driving with these. Maybe not a Michelein but a sound buy.   Read More
