Huge improvement over the stock bridgestones, the tire is visually larger than stock. The initial acceleration bite in snowy conditions really amaze me considering it isn't a snow tire. Alot smoother ride. I have over 40k on these and looking like I can get another 40k from them. The only thing I didn't care for is that they seem slightly delayed to abrupt steering imput compared to the OE bridgestones.

Performance is good but the thread design confuses/concerns me. They go and make a directional design but it's not directional... The solid bar on the tire is not on the outside to enhance cornering grip, the grooves are turning the wrong way etc.

Traction is great in dry and especially wet conditions. Made the steering easier. Much better than previous Toyos and Michellins on the car at different times. No sign of wear yet.

Which Tires Last the Longest?

Tuesday, July 29, 2014 by Gary Stanley

As a consumer shopping for tires, there are many important attributes and characteristics that you should take into consideration. For example, some tires have better wet traction for rainy days, while some are designed to handle winter's toughest conditions. There are tires that focus mostly on maximum dry grip on the race track, and others that are meant to provide a smooth and quiet ride.

Some of these characteristics may be more important to your particular situation than others, but one question that is almost always asked is, "How long will my tires last?" This may even be the most important feature in your tires if you drive many miles on a yearly basis. If you're a driver who has a long daily commute and takes long road trips, consider the following options from a few of our popular performance categories.

In order to get the most wear out of your tires, be sure check your tires' air pressures often and keep them inflated to your vehicle's recommended pressures. You'll want to check and adjust the pressure first thing in the morning before rising ambient temperatures, the sun's radiant heat or even driving short distances temporarily warms the tires. For more maintenance tips to increase your tires' performance, life and durability, read "Air Pressure: When and How to Set."

My wife and daughter believed I put shocks on their car because of the varying texture consistency of the ride! Highly recommended to any who rides on highways for extended periods. Fuel economy was enhanced by two miles per gallon. Go for the purchase and save valuable time by going to purchase this product.

Best Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season Tires in Size 275/55R20

Wednesday, July 23, 2014 by Gary Stanley

On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tires are common for those looking for aggressive tread patterns and some off-road traction. However, many drivers aren't looking for off-road traction and instead drive mostly on the street. These drivers would rather have a tire with a smoother and quieter ride with longer wear. This is what makes tires in the Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season category so appealing to them. The best two options in this category for tire size 275/55R20 are the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology and Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza.

If winter traction isn't a priority for you based on the area you live in, I'd suggest the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza for its smooth, quiet ride and outstanding wet traction. Are you going to experience winter conditions while on the road? Are you concerned about snow traction? You don't have to sacrifice much in the way of snow traction when you purchase the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology. It provides very good snow traction for an all-season tire, even better than some all-terrain tires.

The CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology is currently ranked first in our tire survey results. It has the highest ratings in the following areas compared to other options in the Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season category:

  • Hydroplaning resistance
  • Wet traction
  • Light snow traction
  • Ride comfort

Looking for a Quiet Summer Performance Tire?

Wednesday, July 16, 2014 by Gary Stanley

Summer tires like the Michelin Pilot Super Sport and Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position are the tires of choice for many enthusiasts and drivers of high performance sports cars. These two tires are great options, and you can see the differences between them by reading, "Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position vs Michelin Pilot Super Sport."

While Max Performance Summer tires offer some of the highest levels of grip and handling on the market, there are quite a few drivers who would be willing to give up a little grip for a smoother and quieter ride. If this sounds like what you're looking for, check out the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport and Continental ExtremeContact DW.

Both options provide great wet and dry grip, while still offering good ride qualities. The Bridgestone and Continental have good road feel and steering response that you would expect from a summer performance tire. Their asymmetric tread patterns keep the noise level low and allow you to rotate the tires for even treadwear. The Potenza RE760 Sport is currently ranked second in the Ultra High Performance Summer category, while the ExtremeContact DW sits in fourth in the Max Performance Summer category.

OEM on my Denali XL, put 110K on them and replaced them with the same thing. That is not a typo--110,000 miles on this set of tires. They did need replacing, but they weren't bald--had 3/32 of tread left at worst point. Never expected to get that kind of mileage out of a tire. Key is to rotate every time you change your oil. These are very fairly priced for what you get with this tire.

Just purchased these Potenza RE760 Sport tires and had was excited after reading reviews on here about the performance and the ride quality. Being a tire aficionado I was chomping at the bit to get a good run in with these tires. Now that I got to drive these I must say they do not disappoint at all. First run was down the highway with road noise and ride quality significantly better than the BF Goodrich G-force's. It just so happened to be absolutely pouring later on and the road was holding water. Got a top speed of 95 mph and never felt so confident in my 2001 BMW 525i. I had to get a good run in on the most twisty road I know with the slickness from the rain and found traction so good it felt like the car was on rails. With no mileage warranty and some spirited driving it'll be interesting to see how they hold up over miles but I must say that this tire can make your car feel like a new one with a big jump in tire manufacturer, Bridestone versus Goodrich.

I am now on my second set of these tires on my 2005 WRX wagon. Unfortunately I hit a big pothole with my first set and one of them was damaged so I had to replace them prematurely. They were at 7/16ths tread depth and I was on my third summer season with that first set. I just had a new set installed today. I didn't think twice about buying these tires again.

These are my summer tires in Colorado, and I commute over 50 miles per day. I absolutely love these tires. To sum them up, they are comfortable and quiet on my daily commute, but when I go for spirited drives they provide all the performance I need. Sure they're not track tires, but they are grippy and responsive, and they communicate their limit well. For me they are the perfect summer tire for a commuter who likes to have fun driving without worrying about their tires. And I've never had any issues in the rain either. I highly recommend them!

A lot of compliments came from my relatives when they drove my car. They said this one is way more comfortable, whether as passenger or when they were the driver that they feel ease of driving. No more humming noise, unlike the former set of tire (Bridgestone B-250 185/65/R15).

Once upon a time, I was in a hurry, and was in a heavy rain, there was an inch depth of rain water pool on the highway road surface, I was running at 90-95mph, no hydroplaning felt, just like simply cutting right through it. The quality is way above its price.
