Winter is Coming Part 2: Performance Winter / Snow Tires

Performance Winter / Snow tire consumers generally live in areas that receive little or no snow accumulation, but experience freezing or near-freezing temperatures. The benefits using these tires are twofold. First, drivers get an increase in snow and ice traction, but unlike a Studless Ice & Snow tire, where you are keenly aware you are driving on a winter...  Read More

Best Tire Recommendations for the Toyota Camry

In the early 1980s, the Camry was introduced into the North American market as Toyota's mid-sized sedan. Many iterations of the car have been produced, including coupes, wagons and convertible versions of the car. While body styles have come and gone, the Toyota Camry has always been known as a reliable vehicle with very broad appeal. It's often one of the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

Not sure how much is car based or tire based, BUT, these things are phenomenal for what I bought them for. I was a little disappointed in tread life as I only get about 8K-10K out of a set of rears (fronts wear much longer about 2-1). Ride quality was not too bad given the car they were on, but then again these aren't luxury touring tires. In the morning...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is an awesome tire...I live in Northern Maine where it's inclement weather all the time and this has made such a difference in my vehicle. Performance is A+++ in all areas...I highly recommend these tires!! They are even better than the studded snow tires I had!!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

Since I've owned sports cars (from 1988 on) I have *never* put all-seasons on my cars - I went with summer performance, and (for the most part) drove something else (or didn't drive) in the snow. I finally broke down and tried the Pole Position 970AS - as good a compromise as you'll get - still great in the dry and wet, and I just took them out in the snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I never knew my Subaru had wind noise before installing this tire. The lack of road/tire noise from the Turanza Serenity Plus is astonishing. So far, wet, dry and snow traction feel very similar to the Bridgestone Potenzas that I took off after 59,000 trouble-free miles. The steering feels a little meatier with the Turanzas(which is no bad thing). We've only...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

These are very possibly the best all-season tires I've ever had. Very quiet, comfortable ride and good performing. Couldn't believe the difference in quality feel of the car once these were on the car. Better tire (and quieter) than the Toyo Versados I had on previously. Hopefully they will wear much better as well. Only noise is a very slight hum sound that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Great tires for handling and performance just drove thru a snowstorm and these tires did well.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

OK, so I haven't put enough miles on these yet to determine treadwear and snow performance. All I can say is that, so far, these tires have been a major improvement over the OEM tires. Perfect for a Tundra 4 door with my type of usage. More importantly, I wanted to weigh in on the excelling value of user reviews in making a good decision on new tires. My...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza

The old tires were Continental CrossContact LX, they were good for the price I paid. I ran over 40K miles on that set, compared with the OEM Dunlop 5000 that I could manage 20K miles at max. This Bridgestone set is good in general, it did something better than Continental such ride, and wet traction, but it is not that good in cornering in the curve like...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Great performance and even tire wear. I got over 40,000 on this tire. Better than Goodyear (OEM), Bridgestone, Dunlop costing more. For the dollar, this Hankook is the best overall value   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar I/T G072

I have driven in terrible winter conditions all across Canada (for 20 plus years) and these tires are by far the best I have ever owned (I am talking SUV driving). From heavy wet snow to hard packed snow in -30 windy conditions, to black ice, to ice....these tires have never let me down. They have been so good, I have rarely had to resort to flipping the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

I have a 2005 SLK 350 that had the Bridgestone Potenza's on it since it was new, while these are great tires they also cost. I myself read reviews on the G-Max tires and liked what people had to say, so I took a chance and bought them, I am so happy with these tires in all aspects, handling, road noise, the general look of them, and the fact that I was able...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

Got these tires based on reviews from others and comparable price. I really wanted to get the Bridgestone Revo ATs which I previously had on my 2000 Jeep Cherokee and performed exceptionally well on that vehicle. I could not get a decent price on the Revos so I thought I'd give the Geolander ATS a try. It was during the recent snow storm in Michigan over...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

The greatest upgrade for a car in winter, period. For the longest time I swore by ultra high performance all-season tires, and simply accepted the sliding, and fishtailing as part of normal operation in winter. I was convinced I needed an AWD vehicle to brave the heavier snow. Getting these tires however has completely changed my opinion on it however.The...  Read More

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

After some bad luck years ago with Pirellis I gave it one more chance...and I'm glad I did. These tires are absolutely wonderful. From New York pothole streets to Turnpike driving, these tires are just right. For what they are built for,they handle excellent in high speed driving and cornering. (yes, ultra high performance will corner a little better but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

The tread wear is an issue but given the performance and how little one can get them on special from Tire Rack, it is the tire to have if driving spirited and performance is high on the agenda. No matter how many horses of power there are, the power needs to be transferred onto the tarmac before warp speed is possible. Now I realize why racing teams carry a...  Read More

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

I replaced my OE Potenzas with these F1 all seasons. I got tired of having to swap wheels every winter and put on the Dunlop Winter Sports, so I'm trying all season tires. I put them on in April, so I haven't driven in snow yet, but on dry pavement and rain, the Eagle F1s perform as well as the stock Bridgestones. Cornering is awesome. The F1s handle the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I purchased these tires on the advice of the Tirerack customer service rep that I spoke with on the phone, and boy am I glad I did! I had been having the problem of driving on tires from the big wholesale club's tires, and way before the tires were expected to be worn down I was having AWFUL traction in the rain. White-knuckle to say the least, and that is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Two New England winter storms thus far on these tires. No issues, I've made it to work and home (+) to do usual errands without any loss of traction or lack of confidence with grip. The true confidence (to me) is that I can usually get when I want to go, but with snow and ice on the road having the confidence with STOPPING is the thing. I travel mostly...  Read More
