Initial Review, 46,000 Miles on Tires
December 26, 2013

I bought four of these tires in November 2010. At the time, I didn't know how many more times our Escape would be able to pass inspection. I'd had great results with Michelin Cross Terrains, but didn't want to spend the extra money that Michelins would cost.
The Generals worked very well for us. We drive on the "spirited" side, with a pretty even mix of interstates, back roads and city streets, and occasional gravel roads and farm fields. Traction, steering, handling, braking, noise, everything has always been excellent. The tires always responded predictably, with no significant decrease in performance as they aged.
Three years later, the Generals are almost done, but they still have some useful life left, maybe another 5,000 miles. I had them out twice recently in significant snowstorms, and felt safer and more secure with them than with the newer all-seasons on my rental car. Part of that is the nature of the two vehicles (Escape 4WD vs. Toyota Camry FWD), but even with traction control and the other 2012 technology the Camry has, the Escape (and its older tires) still felt safer.
I would probably buy another set if we were keeping the Escape. For the money, I don't know of a comparable tire that would work better for this vehicle than the Generals. If money were no object, I might consider the Michelin LTX M/S 2. I had an older generation of this tire on my pickup years ago; they were tremendous, and I understand the newer generation is even better. But they are pricey, about $180 each for the Michelins in the Escape size, vs. $100 or so for the Generals.
Tire Rack is my number one source for tire information, and my number one choice when it's time to buy. Their prices are competitive, I love their test reports, and the surveys and reviews are the most comprehensive I've ever seen. When I have questions, their representatives always come through. I don't even consider any other online tire suppliers, there's no need when Tire Rack does such a nice job.

Second set of ExtremeContact DWS tires I've purchased for my vehicles - Acura and Honda. This is a great year round tire. Perfect for DWS conditions. Price is affordable, comfy ride, steering response and traction in all weathers is great. Just had a couple inches of snow and these performed GREAT. Waiting for the heavy snowfall to give am update. Spirited driving here and there and I know my tires - and these exceed my expectation for an all season tire. If you're looking for all-season performance and drive your car NORMALLY, then this is a great tire for you. Some negative reviews I've seen on this tire are from people who try to "race" or drive the crap out of these tires. These aren't racing/all terrain racing tires. Sidewalls are kind of soft/thin (but I believe Continental made them that way to help dissipate heat during the summer months). Steering response is good but don't expect them to respond like a racing tire. Keep these rotated about every other oil change and you're set to go. These tires have long life from having them on my first car.

If you take your Jeep or truck off-road this is tire everyone gets that have done their research. I got 45,000 out of my first set and I didn't even consider another tire or brand when it was time to replace them. 45K doesn't sound like much compared to street tires but in this class there is no equal. If road noise bothers you this may not be your tire but the traction advantage greatly out weighs a little tire singing. Ice is the one thing these tires don't like but when it comes to snow or mud, the tires are a definite confidence builder! I have never had any issue with balancing unlike many other brands and they have a strong sidewall that holds up well while playing in rocks.

This is the 5th set of tires I've had on this truck. It's a company vehicle that I've driven since it was new. I drive in all weather conditons, and all off-road conditions for the work I do. Putting these tires on was like geting beefed-up shocks. It handles and corners like a mid-sized sedan now. The traction is excellent in all conditions. We had a big snow storm with 35deg temps yesterday, which left 3" of icy slush on the roads. No problem. Today, the temp dropped to 22deg, so the now the slush has frozen solid. No problem. Very happy with these tires, just glad I didn't have to pay for them myself:)

While the Rugged Terrain's aren't "bad," they certainly do not hold a candle to the Michelin AT2's that they replaced. I knew that I would be making a compromise going from an all-terrain to a highway tread, but I truly expected better from a BFG -- especially in the wet. While they're just fine in the dry (really, they're great), it is a rare occasion that I can accelerate from a stop without some wheel slip. This is worsened with any amount of a grade or turn.

The same performance (disappointment?) is also experienced in snow and ice -- they simply don't have the bite that I prefer (in comparison, the Michelin AT2's were better in 2wd than these BFG's are in 4wd). While I'm not a tire engineer, I believe some of this might have been remedied if they had tread siping. Further, in no way does their performance in the rain/snow/ice back up their aggressive look.

As mentioned, they are great in the dry, but not great enough to make up for their shortcomings when the moisture hits the pavement. As such, I will not likely purchase these again (and I'll likely be going back to an all-terrain tread).

PROS: Looks good, low noise for an A/T tire, very good treadwear, tough sidewall construction, great for heavy loads
CONS: Terrible wet weather traction (even with 4-wheel drive on), lousy traction in snow/ice, hard as a brick when cold, jittery on the highway (wanders terribly and tracks horribly), way overpriced
CONCLUSION: Had these for 6-months...loved the style and quietness for an A/T tire. Once the cold weather kicked in...couldn't wait to snow test them. The results were unimpressive and quiet disappointing. After 1,000 miles of cross country driving to Michigan, I had to get them off. I replaced them with the Michelin LTX M/S2. These tires are far better then the BFGs. I will keep the BFGs for summer only because I can't replace them. Don't buy these BFG tires unless you really need to do some off-roading or Baja racing...they don't connect with the pavement in poor/cold conditions.

 

Goodyear's Wrangler All-Terrian Adventure with Kevlar Does it All

Thursday, January 9, 2014 by Zig Ziegler

The Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar is Goodyear's newest On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tire slated to replace the highly popular Wrangler SilentArmor. Last year, Goodyear provided us an opportunity to experience this tire in Colorado Springs, Colorado, one of America's top areas for outdoor recreational activities. They offered several on-road and dirt-road experiences behind the wheel of a variety of SUVs and pick-up trucks in the shadows of the Rocky Mountains.

Most notably, our team felt the tire provided a quiet and comfortable ride. Also, the tire's open shoulders and multi-faceted tread blocks delivered predictable steering response and traction on dirt.

Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar tires are developed for light truck drivers looking to combine on-road competence with off-road versatility. Offered in Standard Load sizes for half-ton vehicles, the tire is also available in Pro-Grade Load Range E sizes for three-quarter and one-ton pick-up trucks, vans and SUVs that regularly haul or tow heavy loads.

This new addition to the Goodyear line-up features a longwearing, specialized rubber tread compound (Pro-Grade tires use an even more chip- and chunk-resistant tread compound that enhances wear in high-torque applications). These compounds are molded into a multi-faceted symmetric tread design that combines rugged looks along with on-road comfort and off-road traction. Open shoulder blocks and traction ridges at the base of the outboard circumferential grooves help clear mud and snow (Pro-Grade tires meet the industry's severe snow service requirements and are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol).

If you're in the market for an On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tire that can deliver superior ride comfort and road noise, while combining off-road versatility then consider the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar.

So far so good! 9500 miles and great traction in all conditions! I don't understand some other peoples noise complaints, I am driving a trailblazer and granted they are not michelins but I also didn't pay for michelins! I don't hear my tires when I am driving, actually I am very surprised that given the aggressive core of the tire that I don't have noise! Highly recommended!

 

Best All-Terrain Tires for Winter

Thursday, October 17, 2013 by Steve Huffman

Do you own a pickup truck or large SUV and need an aggressive tire? Or possibly you're getting ready for hunting season or snow plowing and need new tires. If you're looking for an aggressive tire that can also go off-road while still performing on the streets, then look at options in the On-/Off-Road All-Terrain category. Some options are branded with the severe winter mountain/snowflake symbol and can even be studded to provide added traction.

New for 2013 is the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar. Just one look at this tire and you can see how well it will churn through the snow. It's heavily siped which will certainly help with the grip on ice. The sidewall rubber compound features Goodyear’s Durawall Technology to protect the polyester cord body by resisting cuts, punctures, scuffing and abrasion.

Another great option is the General Grabber AT 2. This tire consistently rates well by our customers and is very aggressive. It has tremendously deep tread depth and can plow through deep snow. The tread blocks feature multiple traction edges and sipes, and are molded to accept optional metallic studs to increase wintry weather traction.

Finally, the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO is worth a look. This tire has been around for quite some time, but more importantly, it's a solid performer and does very well in the snow. Its aggressive tread design easily goes through deep snow and will keep you trucking along to your destination.

Alternative Options to Tire Chains

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 by Neal O'Neal

Depending on where you live, you may be familiar with how to use tire chains. Quite a while ago, government agencies that oversaw roads cutting through mountain regions required vehicles to use tire chains before proceeding through a mountain pass. Although they increased traction for the type of tire technology at the time, they were cumbersome and inconvenient to install during a storm.

In the 1990s, a new standard was developed to help consumers identify and purchase a tire that offered a higher level of traction in harsh winter conditions. Tires were now to be branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol. In addition to tire chains, winter / snow tires meeting this performance standard are considered traction devices, allowing drivers to get through the passes. Listed below are some light truck/SUV options that are branded with a mountain/snowflake symbol. These tires offer a higher level of winter traction without the requirement of using snow chains.

Best All-Season Tires for Snow

Thursday, September 12, 2013 by Colin .

It's late summer and I am already taking calls from drivers asking which tires have the best winter traction. As you may already know, using winter / snow tires will give you the best winter traction. Since not everyone wants to or needs a dedicated set of winter tires, drivers who can use all-season tires in areas that see only light snow should consider tires in the following categories: 

After you select the performance category, you can filter based on winter performance and your tire's size. 

If you live in an area that receives its fair share of snow and ice, you can't beat the performance of a set of dedicated winter / snow tires. Remember, all-season tires are a compromise intended to provide acceptable traits under a wide variety of conditions.

Using our Winter Tire Decision Guide will help you narrow down your choices and lead you to the tires that are right for how and where you drive this winter.

General Gives Your Truck Off-Road Capability and Great Looks with the Grabber

Thursday, August 22, 2013 by Doc Horvath

Based on their experiences in the Baja 1000 and other races in the Team GT Trophy, General has introduced the Grabber DOT-approved off-road tire in many popular sizes. The aggressive all-terrain tread pattern is complemented with the distinct red "GRABBER" lettering on the sidewalls, just like you see on the Trophy trucks!

Red Letter Information and Care Instructions:

  • Do not use gas, alcohol or petroleum based solvents.
  • Do not use direct high-pressure water.
  • Avoid rough brushes or any other abrasive materials.

Grabber's vertical-edge shoulder blocks (which alternate between being stepped in or out) and multi-angled sidewall protectors provide excellent side bite and puncture protection for the three-ply reinforced casing. Its tread design is refined with General's Acoustic Modulation Sound Technology (AMST), a sound wave suppression technology that helps lower tire noise on the road and avoid the "howl" that many off-road tires produce on pavement.  

Take a look at what our customers are saying about their experience with the General Grabber.

"The level of grip on dry pavement and dry dirt road is unparalleled to anything else on the M/T tire market. The traction is like a 200 treadwear, max performance summer tire on dry pavement. But they really come alive on dry dusty dirt roads. These tires can dig down through loose rock and sand to find traction where there is none. I blasted through many back country dirt roads with these tires at speeds I wouldn't feel comfortable with any other tires. While other M/Ts leave tracks, these tires leaves ruts of disturbed dirt at the same speed." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 QuadCab 4wd

"I have these tires on a 2013 Jeep Rubicon with a 2.5" lift. They are quieter than the Original Equipment. Ride is good and they are surprisingly quiet and the traction off-road is amazing! These are great tires." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

Best Tires for the SUV or Crossover That Stays on the Street

Wednesday, August 21, 2013 by Gary Stanley

Let's be honest. The majority of drivers of SUVs and all-wheel drive crossover vehicles rarely, if ever, take their cars off-road. Most of their driving involves the daily grind of commuting and the everyday errands of life. Many trips involve going to the grocery store and the occasional visit to the home improvement store. 

Street-oriented drivers did not purchase their vehicles to handle off-road conditions such as loose rocks, steep elevations and deep mud. Off-road enthusiasts will focus on aggressive tires found in the On-/Off-Road All-Terrain and Off-Road Maximum Traction performance categories. However, most crossover and SUV drivers are looking for tires that can deliver all-season traction, good treadwear, respectable ride quality and long treadlife. Tires that best deliver these results fall into the Highway All-Season and Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season categories.

17" Alternate Size for the Dodge Journey

Wednesday, July 31, 2013 by Hunter Leffel

Is your Dodge Journey equipped with 19" tires? Then take a look at alternate sizing options by reading "Tire Alternatives and Options for Your Dodge Journey."

Since I wrote that blog post, I have been asked about different tire size options for the 225/65R17-equipped Journey. For this particular model, I would suggest looking at 235/65R17 as an optional size. These will be about a half-inch wider and taller. What this does is open up some different top-rated tires to install on your Dodge Journey.

If you're looking for a tire that offers a quiet ride and comes with a long treadlife warranty, take a look at the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring. It combines independent shoulder blocks with notched intermediate and center ribs to blend dry and wet road traction and handling. The tire's internal construction includes a super shock absorbent Comfort Layer of rubber sandwiched between the tread and steel belts to insulate vibration and impacts with expansion joints, potholes and bumps. 

To really step up the wet and dry performance for more spirited drivers, the High Performance All-Season Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 is worth a look. The tire uses Sumitomo's high-tech materials and manufacturing methods to blend high performance with year-round traction, including light snow.

Are you looking to do some off-road driving? Then consider Firestone's Destination A/T. It's designed to meet the needs of drivers who desire the look and performance needed for on- and off-road driving. Destination A/T tires are designed to blend an all-terrain tread design with a comfortable ride.

Are Kumho Tires Good?

Wednesday, June 5, 2013 by Colin .

Many customers often ask me if Kumho tires are good and worth considering. I tell them that Kumho makes good performing tires at a lower price level than some of its competitors. In many categories, Kumho offers a great option that many of our sales specialists recommend to drivers on a daily basis.

Standard Touring All-Season

The Solus KR21 is one of Kumho's Standard Touring All-Season options. Designed for the drivers of family coupes, sedans, minivans, crossovers and SUVs, it provides good traction and ride qualities to go along with an 85,000-mile treadlife warranty. Kumho offers a road hazard warranty for one year or the first 2/32" of treadwear.

Grand Touring All-Season

In the Grand Touring All-Seaon category, Kumho's best offering is the Ecsta LX Platinum. It is designed to blend responsive handling, long wear (60,000-mile treadlife warranty) and a quiet ride with year-round traction including in light snow. 

Ultra High Performance All-Season

Kumho's Ecsta 4X is an Ultra High Performance All-Season tire that blends excellent steering response with great wet and dry traction. Currently ranked in the top ten in its category, the Ecsta 4X is a great tire at a good price.

Goodyear vs. Michelin Truck Tire Comparison

Thursday, May 16, 2013 by Ben Rooney

In the first installment of my Goodyear versus Michelin comparison, I focused on car tires. Now, let's take a look at the truck and SUV tires offered by these two heavyweights of the tire industry.

Category: Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season

Contenders: Goodyear Assurance CS TripleTred All-Season vs. Michelin Latitude Tour

Verdict: Goodyear wins this close match-up with superior traction in wet and wintry weather. The same aggressive tread that helps it gain better traction in the worst weather conditions comes with a trade-off in ride and noise comfort. Customers who value a luxury ride and do most of their driving in moderate climates may find that the Michelin suits them better.

Category: Highway All-Season

Contenders: Goodyear Wrangler RT/S vs. Michelin LTX M/S2

Verdict: The Michelin LTX M/S2 wins this category by a wide margin. It's consistently rated near the top of the category for an excellent all-around combination of ride, traction and treadwear.

Category: On-/Off-Road All-Terrain

Contenders: Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor vs. Michelin LTX A/T2

Verdict: Michelin's LTX A/T2 squeaks ahead with better balancing, road manners and longevity with traction on loose surfaces. The Goodyear has a more aggressive tread and would be a more popular choice for those who spend more time off the pavement.

Category: Off-Road Maximum Traction

Contenders: Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar vs. Michelin (none)

Verdict: The highly capable Goodyear wins this one unopposed.

Roundup: In this very close match-up, Michelin wins two categories, while Goodyear also wins two. These categories were extremely close and selection often come down to a driver's preference.

I have not rotated the original Michelin Cross Terrain tires on my Toyota 4Runner SR since purchased in July 2004. Still tread left on front tires, but back ones have very little but with over 100,000 miles I couldn't expect much more. The Spare is brand new (never on the ground). But with age-related weather cracks, not good to put it on the ground now. Not sure whether the Road Noise is because of the tires or the age of the 4Runner. I thought about driving it until the first flat, then buy 4 Michelins. But driving on turnpikes/freeways a lot, I've decided that wouldn't be very smart. So I will order Michelins from Tirerack.com. Tried putting actual miles of 100,465 but the form won't let me.

I cannot say how much I love these tires off road !!!! If you're looking for an exceptional offload tire with good on road manners then look no further. I've tackled mud, rocks, and extremely deep snow (several feet deep) and these tires have pretty much reduced my winch usage to monthly checks and maintenance because I've yet to need to use it since getting these tires. I wheel mostly in the Black Hills of SD, that being said I cannot tell you how good they handle deep mud, however if they perform half as well in deep mud as they have in all of the other terrains then they will do great! These will be the only tires I put on my Jeep unless Goodrich develops a better set :)
