Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60

Initially I was a bit hesitant to spend the extra money for a separate set of winter tires. I am VERY glad that I did not cheap out and stick with the all-season ones that came with the vehicle this wintertime. I was amazed how relatively quiet these Blizzak-LM60 tires are at highway speeds.Recent snow, sleet, slush, freezing rain events have proved the true...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

This is my 3rd winter on these tires, and they continue to prove this was a wise purchase. Great in deep and very deep snow. A pleasant surprise though is their superior handling on dry, cold roads as opposed to an all season tire. It seems like the colder it is the better the tires hold dry roads. I'm seeing tread wear loss but not to an alarming degree; I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Drove my AWD Acadia for 3 winters without snows and always managed. Bought snows this year for several planned winter trips. Far surpass my expectations on snow and ice. Traction is amazing for braking, acceleration, cornering. Holds steady for lane changes in deep/slushy storm conditions. Noisier than all season tires but not objectionable. Wish I had them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Had these tires for 2 winter seasons with approx 8000 of mostly highway driving... Bought these tires for the long drives up to the ski hill. Have encountered some treacherous winter driving conditions and these tires have yet to still dissapoint... Deep snow, slush, ice, snow drifts are all non issues with these tires. Found them to even be quieter than the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I bought these after struggling through my first winter when I bought my vehicle brand new. It had kuhmo tires and they were horrible in the winter. These tires are amazing, making me happy with my vehicle again. Driving with these in the winter in the Midwest has been a joy. We've had several feet of snow and you wouldn't know my vehicle is only front wheel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS

I purchased these not reading the reviews and was pleased as a spring/summer/fall tire. They are useless as a winter tire but then again I always switch over to Blizzaks in Winter.I tried these during our first light snow fall on our 540 and they are useless but then again I figured as much. I switched immediately over to my already mounted Blizzaks and what...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

My steering instantly became lighter with these tires. Maybe not a good thing for enthusiasts, but handling was unaffected. Ride was vastly improved over OEM Bridgestone Turanzas, much more comfortable. Wet traction is fantastic. Snow performance is far, far, superior to the OEM's. Tougher winter in Ohio this year but I never had single tense moment on the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

These are great for My Subaru XT on the highway they handle almost the same as all seasons which means there is very little difference do to the H speed rating. Anyone that ones a turbo car knows it is really easy to go fast and then you have to maintain control and stop. These tires are able to do all of that with no problems. The ride is amazing for winter...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

After coping w/years of moderate Winters w/ various grand touring/ all season tires, the last two winters have caused me to again seek the added safety and peace of mind that better snow tires offer. My car has neither ABS or Traction Control; that's where the Blizzaks come in. Very happy with them. By far, the best all around Winter tires I've ever...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Winter is dying down in Ottawa Canada and while shining my tires for the first time since i got them just before winter i realized i should write a review because I loved them that much. Canadian winters are rough, and when people skimp on tires especially all season they end up in the ditch. I have driven in some very bad snowstorms, hard packed snow fresh...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I don't go off road, so didn't want all terrain tires. the stock Goodyear SRA's are just junk, very dangerous in rain, so I didn't even wanna see what snow would be like. I have always been a big believer in winter dedicated tires for winter months. Put the proper dedicated tires on for what the environment calls for, you only have 4 small contact patches of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I had four of these installed after the stock Bridgestone Potenza RE92As wore out. Right away, I thought the car felt sportier. I have steel wheels with hubcaps, and the wheelguard on these Goodyears really helped to surround and integrate the hubcap and eliminate the cheap feel that hubcaps sometimes have.I've also been impressed by the quality of this...  Read More

Excellent SNOW tires!! Bought these in Dec/2012 and just finished my third winter with them in very steep hilly areas in Baltimore and now Pa! It is now May/2015 and I have worn these tires out commuting the past 8 months from Pa to Md. FYI - I did not install studs in them and I did not switch them out for all-weather tires because the past few years our...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

Stock All-Seasons (aka no-seasons) that came on a '13 FR-S. On the dry, it's a good tire, allowing to enjoy the car's nimbleness and easy temper. Enough corner traction to put you in trouble, but lets go in a consistent, predictable way.On the wet, it's a good straight-line tire. Never had any problems in regular driving, but ultimate wet cornering grip is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

Great wet traction as I expected but what I didn't expect was dry traction that was superior to the Bridgestone S-02 or Michelin Pilot Sport tires I had previously on the car! There were also a small improvements in ride comfort and lower noise which my wife always appreciates. Don't be fooled into thinking this is some sort of compromised all-season tire,...  Read More
