I just ordered 4x Bridgestone Turanza T005 (225/45 R17) for my VW Golf VII 1.8 TSI (170 HP) - I got these tires for 67,90 GBP per tire, here in Poland, it was my local tire-shop who made me that offer. It's even a bit cheaper than the cheapest resellers on the web, here in Poland, so I'm quite happy.

Pilot sport 4 or super sports. Can't get 4s in a 225 fitment
Tyre Reviews (4 days ago)
Personally I'd probably go for the PSS as I regard dry handling and steering feel above everything else! Your preferences might be different though.
Jameson Hernan (4 days ago)
I'm running a 225 40 18 on my 340bhp gt86. I'm looking for a good all round tyre. Would you say the trade off on ultimate dry grip of the pss if bad in the wet? Or would the ps4 be a better daily choice?
Tyre Reviews (4 days ago)
PSS for ultimate dry handling, PS4 will give you better wet grip and comfort.

Hi, very informative video, thks. I ve got an A5 2.0 FWD 211HP and looking into which Michelin suits best. My size is 245/40/18 93Y. Unfo the 4S is not avail in 18". I have the Pilot Sport 3 now for abt 16000 km and already worn out at front. Good tyre but after the first year and few thousand km it spins on 1st, 2nd and later on even on 4th. I am not so keen on the Pilot Sport 4 if it is just the new PS 3. I am more looking into the Super Sport or Sport Cup 2. What do u think? I understand that PSport 4 it may be better at wet but worst at the dry than the two. My concern is if SS or SC2 are for more powerful cars and don't fit good on mine + their vibration. Any advice?
Christos D (5 days ago)
Tyre Reviews Thks man.. appreciate it!
Tyre Reviews (5 days ago)
PSS Would be fine on the road, but check out my PSS vs PS4S video from about a year ago for all the details :) PSS better dry handling, PS4S better everywhere else.
Christos D (6 days ago)
Tyre Reviews Thks will do. Awaiting the video :). What would you choose between PS4 and PSS for my car? Is PSS a too track tyre to be used 100% on the road with my car HP?
Tyre Reviews (6 days ago)
PS4 is much better than PS3. Sub to the channel I've got a PS4 vs PS4S vs Cup2 video coming in the next week :)

Do you have any comment on how the standard PS4 compares to the PS4S especially under dynamic (e.g) track conditions? What are the genuine technical differences between the 4 and 4S?
Shrink1061 (8 days ago)
Yeah I like the PSS as it existed in the right size, sadly they don't make any high performance crossover tyres in a 17" these days!.
Tyre Reviews (8 days ago)
PS4 will do it, they weren't falling apart or anything, they're just not the ideal tyre. Ideally I'd go for a crossover road / track tyre.
Shrink1061 (8 days ago)
Thanks for this. better solution would be second set of wheels, but i'm garage-less for a while! so it needs to be one set of tyres for 90% road, but that can take a hammering on track. Have a good day!
Tyre Reviews (8 days ago)
In isolation the PS4 is ok on track, but it does start to cook itself way more quickly than something like a Cup 2, and dynamically isn't quite as sharp, so if you're going to be doing a lot of track miles, 100% go Cup 2
Shrink1061 (8 days ago)
Been subscribed for a while :) Just back from a fantastic track day week, Caterham 410R and F80 M3 competition pack, Michelin Cup2's on BMW and ZZS on the Caterham, really interesting few days. Now looking for a 215/45/17 tyre that works on track but wont be useless daily. Suspect Cup2 will be the way forward, but if the standard 4 can handle a bit of track, then it may be a better all rounder for 90% road use.

Thank you for a great video and review. Which one do you recomend for Skoda Octavia estate 1.6 tdi 2015. Next summer I ll have to change original ones 225 45 17 Dunlop Sport Maxx, which I find very good. Price is not really important , just want to be certain that it will be good and safe for 3 or 4 summers. Greetings from Croatia.

I drive a 2001 New Beetle Sport Turbo (sport meaning stick shift). After a looked into different brands as everybody else I try to find out good tires at the cheapest price. After browsing for hours I decided for the 225/45-17 HANKOOK VENTUS V2 CONCEPT 2 H457 94V BSW Tires. What's your opinion?

Thanks for the video.I’ve got a set of 4 year old tires with 25000 miles that are showing cracks in between tread. Nothing on the side walls. Should I be worried of a blowout or are they just superficial? Thanks for your time and patience .

I would suggest getting a tyre garage to inspect them, that's not something that can be diagnosed over the internet.
Honfy Lam (13 days ago)
Considering I got my Stinger GT new in April this year, I'm surprised it came with the weaker option Sport Contact 5s. Other parts of the world it may come with Pilot Sport 4S, but even as a continental tire, it's not even the newest one. I did hear that the wear is bad for the continentals. I'm wondering if i should get 6s or the Michelins when it's time to change them
Tyre Reviews (13 days ago)
The 6 and the 4S are both excellent tyres. The Michelin will probably wear a little better though.

Interesting list that seems to agree with several of the tests I've read. But, and it's a big one, tests of new tyres don't tell the whole story. You touched on the fact that wearing the tyres down and retesting would be a bit prohibitive, but it's been done before. Check out this video where new tyres are worn down to 4/32" (~3.2 mm) and retested: https://youtu.be/F_3Pk0fJUeY?t=610 The degradation of tyre performance is actually quite large, and surprisingly, some tyres that are performing very well when new may end up degrading so fast that they end up worse than the "weaker" competition.
Tyre Reviews (19 days ago)
It's something I'd love to do, but wear testing is VERY VERY expensive. The way the AA buffed the tyres isn't a fair comparison as tyres age with real world use, so you actually have to drive 20k miles on 10 sets of tyres in a very procedural way, which is a lot of man time!
Brad_0 (19 days ago)
My mr2 can't take ps4, how good are ps3s as a track/road tyre?
Tyre Reviews (19 days ago)
Not as good, but depending on your size it still might be your best option unless you move to a track focused tyre like the AD08

I have the Uniroyal Rainsport 3 on a fiat 500 sport... they came with the car when I bought it, so I didn't have any choice. I'd normally have dismissed them, but having had it 6 months, I'd say they actually run very very well on a light car. Without too much weight, and in some of the smaller profiles, the sidewall issue doesn't appear to be an issue. The dry grip is really quite excellent and wet grip also superb. Again, I'd suggest these would suit a smaller lighter car far better. Biggest downside, wear rate seems poor. The fronts were new when I got the car, 4000 miles in and they're about half done, while the rears looks mostly new, and that's on a little 1.4! To compare, on my Caterham, I found the Yokohama A539 as a road tyre to be skittish and uncomfortable, I'd suggest the RS3 would also be a great touring tyre for small sports and kit cars. On a larger heavy car, even something like my Boxster at 1400-1500kg, the RS3 would just chew itself to pieces and flex all over the place. Used in context, a great budget tyre, used out of context, dreadful!
Shrink1061 (14 days ago)
Tyre Reviews reality is the uniroyal rainsport 3 isn’t a great choice for the track. The sidewalls really are too soft even on a 950kg car! From cold at slightly above factory pressures they held up ok, but within a few sessions it was almost impossible to make out the word “uniroyal” on the sidewall !! They were rolling onto their sides that much! (Although cup2’s aren’t great at this either) Once hot they became squirmy never really progressing into sticky, just slippery. Understeer became almost impossible to avoid once they had passed the “too hot” phase. So, high wear rate, poor sidewall strength, and poor with heat in them. Sadly no “serious” tyres available in a 205/40/17 If you look on my channel you’ll see a short video of a few laps on them.
Shrink1061 (22 days ago)
With my Caterham I had the chance to go from my road Yokohama A539 to R888R's on the same track day. The difference was absolutely ludicrious, especially somewhere twisty with lots of elevation changes like Knockhill.

Replaced a set of really worn Michelin Pilot Super Sports with the Pilot 4S on my E92 M3. Noticeable improvement in comfort and cool temperature traction. Seriously considered Firestone Firehawk Indy 500’s for $600 cheaper, but ultimately bit the bullet and bought the best.

So I'm looking at a high performance tyre on an 18" wheel. I've narrowed it down to 2 I think... Michelin Pilot SS & Pilot S4. As I can't yet get the 4S for an 18" wheel, would you get the older but slightly cheaper SS or the newer 4? What is the difference in dry & wet Performance?
Tyre Reviews (1 month ago)
4 will be better in the wet by quite a bit (see SS VS 4S video) and it will be more comfortable, SS will have better dry handling
Steven Khoo (1 month ago)
While we don't exactly have tried any other brands, my dad is an ardent Contis user. And recently two of our cars run on ultra contact 6, imo, they provide relatively good feedback, grip levels and exceptional comfort and tire noise levels. Wet grip is good as well with stiff but compliant sidewalls. Only drawback?? Like the video has said, wear. But they aren't too bad.

Just ordered a set of Falken Azenis FK510, had the FK453 previously and I honestly was really happy with those. And indeed the price is the best part of it, probably the best brand to go for if you want fairly cheap tires with good performance. They're also pretty durable, I drove 3 summers with the Falkens with 260 horsepower Volvo S70 frontwheeldrive, and not really giving too much mercy for the tires.
Poor Coyote (1 month ago)
Tyre Reviews Proud for good reason, they've set the bar quite high for tires on that price range, can't see a proper excuse to buy a set that costs 100-300 more for a daily driver.
Tyre Reviews (1 month ago)
The people at Falken are really proud of what they've done with the 510, I'm glad it's working out on many different cars :)
Poor Coyote (1 month ago)
Tyre Reviews I tought you were just talking about big improvement, but damn you were right. Been running them for 2 weeks now with Jeremy Clarcksons mug face impression on me all day long. So quiet compared to the FK453, rolls better and the grip is amazing. On dry tarmac I haven't flashed the tractioncontrol light even once, not even when I slam pedal to the floor from a roundabout or interception. With the old 453's I couldn't carry all the power out of tight corners. Haven't got the rear end loose at all either it just goes like a train. And the wet grip is even better in scale.

i don´t say you missed any tires but there are other tires out there than just the ordinary ones. mine is 19 kumho xl 310km/t A&B marked. sorry my spelling. I personaly have friends killed because of Falken tires failing on german freeway. I have testet a lot of tires and have found some i prefer in 16, 17, 18, 19 sizes. but generally i think people are printed to only buy what they know such as continental , goodyear and so on. it´s up to the individuel person to deside what tire they want. you can take continental ok tire for summer, but for winter a bad tire. hankook not so great as summer tire, but winter a great tire. but its again up to opinion. and the list goes on. i can name more tires but the list gets to long. :) many tires can compete whit goodyear and michelin out there and some are better. Vredestein is a great tire too. :)

Hey! I found your Chanel today and immediatly subbed! Tyres are very important how I discovered myself recently… Since summer began I noticed a (very) bad handling in my Mini Cooper S F56... Normally this car should feel go kart like... Which it definitely doesn't… in december I bought all-year Tyres from Vredestein (Quatrac 5) 205/45 R17 and I think it has to do with it... What would you recommend to buy?
Tyre Reviews (1 month ago)
An all season tyre will definitely make your car feel less sporty as they have a lot of block movement. Switching back to a summer tyre will help loads!

Have you ever reviewed something mid range like the Avon zv3? I have been using them for years now on many different cars from sporty to shopping supermini and they seem to be a great all rounder in my opinion from summer to monsoon to snow in the winter. lthough the only thing i don`t like about them is the used to be made in the UK , then Poland but my most recent ones where made in China. But still seem to be great all rounders for every day use imo. Cannot wait to get rid of the terrible Michelin Energy`s off my my latest run a round and replace em with Avons.

I have a 1996 Chevrolet Caprice. It comes with the high performance handling package. I used to use Goodyear V rated RSA 235/70 15 or 225/70 15. They are about the best tire one can get for the big sedan but are no longer made .Are there any performance tires you can suggest for the car in 15 inch that you can suggest? I  drive very fast and the Goodyear tires handle better than one would expect for the 4,500 pound sedan. Thank you in advance for your reply.

I had Continentals 245/40/20 on the front and only lasted 18,000 miles on my Astra GTC. New they are around £220 each. I looked at the reviews of the Falken tyres and a lot of people were happy with them. Falkens of the same size were £144 each fitted so a saving of £76 a tyre. After driving with the Falkens hard down the country lanes up to 80 mph, they certainly have good handling, I cant tell much difference between these and the Continentals....however the Falkens are much quieter but that could be due to them being new. I dont know how long the Falkens will last but they cant be as bad as the Continentals for wear. I recon your paying a wad of money just for the name of Continentals.

Please recommend me all weather Tyres for hatch back car For long period and in budget 16 inches This Time I use Apollo....
Tyre Reviews (1 month ago)
I would advise Michelin CrossClimate, Goodyear Vector 4Season Gen-2 or Vredestein Quatrac 5. If you live in a really cold / snowy climate, the Nokian Weatherproof is worth a look too.

Tyre?
Tyre Reviews (1 month ago)
The Oxford English Dictionary suggests that the word derives from attire, while other sources suggest a connection with the verb to tie. The spelling tyre is used in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand after being revived in the 19th century. Both tyre and tire were used in the 15th and 16th centuries. The United States did not adopt the revival of tyre, and tire is the only spelling currently used there and in Canada.

Sadly we don't have that range of tyres in the UK so I'm unable to give an educated opinion!

I can do ANYTHING that a michelin does with a TOYO, at a better price.(& the TOYOS are MUCH better at NOT weather-checking than Michelins) .. TOYO ROX! Between Toyo, Yokohama, Bridgestone, Hankook, Kenda, and a couple of import brands for the cheapskates, I have ZERO reason to worry about buying other brands that my primary warehouse doesn't deal with, as my being loyal to them allows them to offer me DAILY deliveries, & top-tier prices, which means that I don't have $$$$$ wrapped up in inventory, only to STILL not have the exact tire that the customer needs anyway.

Great all round honest review on each tyre fella, much appreciated. I've recently just acquired a 208 1.6 VTI (120 hp) on 17'' rims. Came with Michelin Pilot Exalto PE2 on the front and randomly Prestivo PV HP2's mounted on the rear...Did a 500 mile round trip on them this weekend and it was not a comfortable or stable combination, especially in breaking - even though both have great tread depth left. I've opted to refit all four with Michelin Pilot Sport 3's tomorrow to feel safer and stable with good agility/wear as well as handling the long distance twists and turns.

Struggling for a UHP option for my 1985 930 Turbo. I am running 17” wheels and need a 335/35 out back w something along the lines of a 265 up front. In a light weight car pushing 400+ hp I really need excellent grip. Ideas?
Tyre Reviews (1 month ago)
why do you need a 335 wide rear? That's a very wide tyre, and the rear of a Lambo I believe. You're not going to have much, if any choice.

American here with a Type R. The Sport 4S are actually 40$ USD cheaper on tirerack than the Sportcontact 6s. I guess that makes the Mich's a no brainer? Also any Type R owners tried the Falkens? They're 200$ USD cheaper per tire. You could get nearly 8 Falkens for the price of 4 Mich or Contis.
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
Definite no brainer regarding Mich VS Conti, will be interesting to hear your experiences of changing if you do. It would be super interesting to do the 4S vs 510 on a car like the Type R
Jamie Baker (2 months ago)
So what is the best 18" UHP tyre?
Jamie Baker (2 months ago)
Really useful, thank you very much, appreciate you taking the time to reply. keep up the good work. :)
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
The PS4 will have the edge on the Falken, but it's also quite a lot more expensive. Interestingly the Sport Contact 6 is starting to be made in certain 18" sizes, so that will be interesting when it turns up in a test next year!
Jamie Baker (2 months ago)
Yes, sorry was a vague question, I only ask as the top 2 tyres you suggested don't come in an 18, then you didn't mention the Pilot Sport 4 (not S) vs the Falken for example, really appreciate your time, thanks :)
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
It depends what you want from the tyre :)

Anything's noisy on a Mazda 6!! Road noise isolation isn't its strong point. The handling is excellent but it rides like a trolley jack over some UK road surfaces. At the age of 48 I wouldn't mind a bit less spine battering. Personally I think 17" and slightly higher profile tyres might suit it better but I don't really want to pump £1200+ into rims and tyres just to find out there's next to no difference. I think you're right - PS4 vs PS4S isn't going to be night and day in terms of difference. I will go with your PS4 suggestion next time round, they do get good reviews. Michelin has generally always impressed me apart from the ghastly Primacy 3 where they lost their way a little. Have a great afternoon and thanks for your messages. Cheers, P.
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
No offense intended, and I'm glad you find the site useful :) The PS4 would be a solid upgrade on the RT2, though the PS4 can be a little noisy on some vehicles. I'm due to test the PS4 vs PS4S next month, I don't think there will be as much in it as everyone thinks!
paulanderson79 (2 months ago)
I am actually a big fan of Tyre Reviews - please don't take my petty grammar OCDs as an insult. I spend months deliberating where I'm going with the next set of tyres I buy and Tyre Reviews is my best ally. Currently running Dunlop SportMAXX RT2 on a Mazda 6. 225/45 R18 95(Y). Very nice indeed. Quiet and assured. Not quite as snappy as a Potenza S001 but nowhere near as noisy either. Winter is currently Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme S. I'm a fussy driver so my cars are all subjected to a full four wheel alignment a couple of times a year. Michelin Pilot Sport 4 next would be nice but impossible since the PS4S isn't available in 18" fitment so that's not an option. Thanks for great content and information.

Tyres that have less than a "70 series profile, will be destroyed by the large hard edged pot holes we have in our local roads. Many locals have had this problem, sometimes with rim damage as well.

Dimmu Borgir (2 months ago)
I own a 2015 Dodge Durango and trying to get new tires. Which one would you recommend Nitto NT421Q or the kumho Crugen KL33 265/50R20? I live in Phoenix, AZ,USA I read online that the Crugen is better being that it's a touring tire and not all season like the Nitto.

Premium Contact 5 is one of the best on smaller sizes,i found that the dry grip is very sporty but the sidewalls move away before u get to the limit. Wear is good ,got 40000kms on this set so far,2 mm left,i really have hooned these tyres including 200m and 400m drags most weekends,thrashing on track as well.cant complain.
Claude Tasquier (2 months ago)
I saw my dad's Sport Contact 3's disappear in less than 20k km,i was seriously doubting i would reach 30k km on these,really surprised me.another good tyre for endurance is the Pirelli P4 Cinturato,have them on my other car,the car weighs 690kg and also 40k km so far,honestly i think those could go another 40k or more as they are nowhere near 50% life. Always done alignment every 10k or 6 months and check pressures every week,i think this really stretches the life of the tyres.

That's amazing mileage, I wouldn't expect to see 40k in normal road use!

I have Michelin Pilot sport 4s on my CTSV and they seem really solid tires, but I've heard that in lower temps that they're prone to cracking? Not sure how true it is though.
gearzdesign (2 months ago)
Tyre Reviews I did some quick research and Michelin sent out a bulletin saying that driving/storing during cold temps could result in craving of the rubber. So ilk just put the cat on Jack stands and keep the tires inside.
