Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I am no expert nor do I work for any tire manufacturer or designer firm; however I do diligent research before spending large amounts of my money. I am also a tire and brake OCD person. By this I mean, if I'm going to carry something special like my family in my car then I am certainly not going to get a cheaper tire for the sake of saving a whole $80-100....  Read More

Yokohama Geolandar Crossover Tires vs Light Truck SUV Tires

Yokohama has been known for their high performance tires amongst enthusiasts in the industry for decades. Tires like the popular S.Drive and its predecessor, the AVS Intermediate, have a special place in the memories of many high performance drivers.   Yokohama offers much more than performance tires. Whether you're looking at touring tires for the family...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I drove from Durham NH back to central Maine during the snowstorm last wed afternoon and had no problems with loss of traction on either interstate or secondary roads. I purchased the Tirerack recommended tire/wheel package and am completely satisfied. I had to pass many vehicles which came to complete stops on small hills(about 0.5mi long),probably using...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I bought these tires for my 2005 Ford Crown Victoria after several winters of getting stuck on a level surface with one inch on snow on it. This car is probably the worst possible vehicle to drive in winter conditions, so I thought it would be a good test vehicle for these tires. So far here in cleveland we have had rain, snow, ice, and slush. These tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Tire Rack's delivery was faster than what I was expecting! I've used Tire Rack for years and recommend them several times throughout the year. I live near Akron, Ohio, USA, and have had these Generals for a year now. They're GREAT! I use four of them on an AWD Impreza. I drive in the city, on the highway, and occasionally on grass, dirt, or mud. I have them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

These tires are awesome! Like having 4 wheel drive. Last two winters were a nightmare with the factory tires. Upgraded to these with a set of rims on recommendation from a friend with a 3 Series, he loves 'em. Have driven in snow and in icy conditions, tried to make them lose traction, had to push it real hard to break them loose. He said they do wear very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-50 RFT

This is the third set of Blizzak snow tires I have purchased and I love them! Very dependable in bad weather, whether it's rain, snow or ice. Highly recommend them! This year I purchased the run flat version. Love them!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

This is my first set of snow tires. I've always used all season tires, but never again. I put them on in November. I was a little worried that they would be rough or loud on dry pavement, but they are nice and quiet. Of course handling isn't as good as normal summer tires on dry pavement, but the compromise is acceptable. Snow is where these tires are worth...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

The tires are truly a very good tire. That was one of the biggest reasons that I got the Blizzak WS70 and the price was extremely affordable. The reviews compared to other tires were not even close to these brand for the winter. And other people and reviews I read I really didn't hear anything bad about them except for that I would be extremely happy with...  Read More

This is my 3rd set of Blizzaks. They have been great and I would definitly buy again. I have bought multiple tires from Tire Rack and have always recieved the best service.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I bought a set of four of these tires for my 2014 Cruze. These tires have been the best investment I have made. Recently we encountered a horrible ice storm in Pittsbugh and I had to drive to work. These tires saved my life. I was able to drive on black ice in my car and maintain control around bends, down hills, and up hills. To give you an idea how bad...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is the second set of Blizzaks I've had for this vehicle and the 6th set of Blizzaks I've had on vehicles I've owned. They are the best snow tires on the market. I drive very aggressively and consistently 5-10 miles over the limit in just about any condition and feel safe. As a hockey parent, coach, player, and ref I must drive in any condition and drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Phenomenal. Finally had some snow, ice, and several days of subfreezing temps. Have X-Ice 3's on the other car and have used Firestone Winterforce on this. I'd compare as follows--vs. the Winterforce: much better ice and slush grip; slightly better unpacked snow grip; better packed snow grip; much, much lower road noise; slightly softer feeling ride; the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Excellent tire overall. Could be a little better in the snow, otherwise great. This is my second set and I have been very happy. We only get a few snow storms per season here in southern NY, so dry and wet traction, as well as noise over bumpy roads is a premium. This tire will not disappoint if this is the type of tire you need. Thinking of switching to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Amazing. Mid November we got 9 of snow in 8 hours here in Ohio's lake effect snow belt. A co-worker and I pushed 11 cars out of the work parking lot. When it came time for me to leave, several people offered to push my 425HP 6 speed Camaro SS. I wanted to try with no help. After cleaning off the car I put it in 1st gear and drove out of the parking space to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is my first set of winter tires on this car, and my first set of studless winter tires. On previous vehicles, I used studdable winter tires such as the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 1 and the Firestone Winterforce. While those performed fine in winter conditions, they were definitely noisy and rough riding. Not so with the Blizzaks. The ride is smooth and while...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I bought these tires for my lady friend's AWD FX45. This car splits its time between New Jersey and Vermont, and traverses between the two every winter. I drive the car frequently. They are terrific tires on the Interstate and on local roads, both paved and unpaved. I am not consciously aware that I am on snow tires when driving on dry roads, but in snow,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I put these tires on both my Colorado and my wife's Patriot. The performance simply cannot be beat. I run these four months out of the year in Ohio, then I switch back to my Revo 2s. The price of the combo comes out to about $100 extra per year over having one set of tires, but that is pocket change compared to an accident.   Read More
