Tires You Have Ran Thread

Collection of good, bad, and autocross tires anyone?

Running Kumho Solus for all season street. Kicks out a little often on 2nd, all around good. Quiet around corners. Fine in wet.
205/60/16
Long wear time.

225/45/R18 Falken 912 - Tires that feel cheap, and weren't even that cheap
225/40/R18 Yokohama S.Drive - Got for a much better deal than the 912, they didn't last long with my bad alignment but the grip was great. They were crazy noisy due to the feathering but the grip was so good. Very impressed by these tires. Wet weather was always good.
215/45/R18 Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport - These tires are strange, they feel a lot smoother and more predictable than the S.Drive but they were more expensive, heavier and I don't feel like they have the same grip. They possibly have less grip since they're narrower but they do turn when I push it to turn, it just doesn't feel like it wants to when I do (maybe that is moment of inertia). The size is just perfect though, perfect balance of width and height for me. I'd probably try another type next time as well. They're not as good in wet as the S.Drives

(Stock 215-50-17)

Michelin Pilot MXM4 - Worst tires I have every owned. Terrible traction, wet and dry. Lasted 40K and I was happy they were needing to be replaced

Kumho Solus KH16 - Great tire for the money for a all season. Would recommend for daily driving.

General Altimax HP - Nice tire, however it didn't have the grip the Kumhos had. Treadwear was not the best though and the tire made more noise as it wore. Wouldn't purchase again.

Kumho Ecsta 4X- This is the best tire I have ever owned on a vehicle. Drives more like a summer tire than a high performance all season. Very inexpensive for the features. The tire has crazy grip and awesome treadwear for 108 bucks a tire! It is smooth, quiet and refined. Would recommend this tire to anyone.

Here's some feedback from me, granted some of these tires were on another car.

Goodyear Eagle F1 A/S: amazing tires, although they can be pricey. Amazing grip in wet or dry and will handle snow with no problem (especially for front wheel drive cars) tire life is decent, as I got 45K out of my set

General Exclaim UHP: not as impressive as the Goodyears, but for the money they were nice. Not too noisy and great in the rain. These were on my aftermarket wheels so they weren't on for winter, but I did get caught in a few surprise spring snow storms, their snow traction was very iffy. This set also lasted about 45K

Kumho Solus Xpert KH20: great all season tire for the money. I bought this set (215/60 R15) for around $360 said and done, very quiet under normal driving, wet grip was good. Very good in the snow, never got stuck with these tires, even got me home without a hitch in the horrific blizzard from last winter.

Bridgestone Potenza G019 Grid: nice tires, fairly quiet and decent response. Good in the rain, don't know how they will be in the snow yet, I'll know come November.

Falken Azenis PT 722 A/S: very good tires for the money. Fairly quiet, great in the rain and very responsive in wet or dry conditions. They are all seasons, but these won't see any snow use.

Kumho Ecsta Supra 712 (225/40/18) - Older model of Kumho, didn't get an alignment, grip and noise were moderate. Discontinued.
Kumho Ecsta SPT (225/40/18) - Replaced the Supra 712, didn't get an alignment, grip and noise were moderate. Slightly better than the Kumhos.
Nitto NeoGen (225/40/18) - Fairly quiet, rigid tire. High performance all-season tire that feels more like a summer tire.
Hankook Ventus V12 (215/40/18) - Great tire for the money. Quiet, pretty grippy, and affordable. Downside was that it had soft sidewalls. I developed bubbles in two of mine after six months of use.
BFGoodrich KD (225/40/18) - Grippy but noisy. Didn't get an alignment so they wore out fast.
POS Chinese no-name tires similar to General Exclaim UHP (235/35/19) - Noisy and cheap.
Nitto NeoGen (215/40/18) - See above. Stretch was weird on them but they held up nicely.
Falken FK452 (235/40/18) - Cheap, noisy, stiff tires. Did not last very long, grip was moderate. Not the biggest fan of them.
Continental ContisportContact 5P (245/35/18) - Grippy, quiet, and wide. Balanced nicely and were cheap for me.
Pirelli PZero Nero Rosso (245/35/18) - Not quite as nice as the Continentals. Both tires are fairly stiff though.

Your name appears to hold true. Between the gambit of 215 and 245 were there any time you would rate anything better than "Grippy"?

Achilles ATR 235-35-19 - Good Grip Dry..little less wet. Harder tire (maybe because 35 height)

ContiProContact - 245-40-19 - Good tire, Quite, grippy (wet and Dry) not sure price is warranted.

Nexen N300 235-45-17 - Garbage, hated them all around

Federal Evo's Summer Tire 235-45-17 . MY WINNER. Good Price, Grip, Wet and Dry. Low tread wear but does not wear as much as you would think. Softer Side wall for 1/4 mile. 1st gear spin greatly reduced! Really like the side wall tread design.
* Note- they run wide and lower. 235-45 = 245-40 *
