Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Feels very similar to the WS 70, if not slightly lower in performance? Have been running WS 70 for last 5 winters. The WS 80 feels like it has less grip at the limit (same with RE 11A for summer). Could be the set I have. Average 5000km per performance tire (20000km/set) winter or summer. If my next set of WS 80's are still feeling worse than WS 70's, I will...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I had these tires for three years, but this winter in New York (2014/15) was the real test we had so much snow and more ice than I could remember in my fifty plus years. Let me tell you, I never could expect A tire to perform so well. Not one problem. These tires stopped on black ice like the ground was dry, they never got stuck. Pulled in and out of parking...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

In the first 3 months I've driven in dry, wet and winter conditions and the tire has performed well. Comfortable and quiet ride. I replaced bridgestone potenza grid 019 and these are very quiet in comparison. Good tire at a great price, especially when purchase included a $60 rebate. I hope the tread wear proves strong over the next 3-4 years.   Read More

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

Have only put on 10,000 miles on this set of tires, but they seem to be performing very well. I live in the Twin Cities, MN and they are great on snow and ice. We had 24 inches of snow the other day with 3 foot deep snowdrifts and my Honda Pilot went though all this snow without any problems. In fact they are the best tires for deep snow that I have ever...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

These replaced OEM Bridgestone RE050 rft's which were worn out in back after 20K miles. I heavily researched options and we wanted to stay with rft for the security if we had a flat since there's no spare. While we don't intend any winter driving, we wanted strong dry and wet performance, along with a smoother ride and longer treat life. The difference...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Just buy the Bridgestone Serenity. Both of my '02 Merc E320 have them and they have done me well. I had to buy a new set of tires because Michigan's roads. Hankook V2 were suggested . Tired and returned. Bridgestone's again. Granted I have own 14 year old cars and my repair garage loves Michelin. Bridgestone has given me the best performance over the years.   Read More

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

I've put these tires to the test and I am absolutely in love with them. Although I haven't had a lot of travel time with them, my first impression is they are a meaty tread with massive water channels, and they run a little on the small side (275 has slight stretch on 10.5 wheel). I've launched my car on dry pavement and I get little more than a chirp and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A

These are the oem tires on my gen coupe and I've been very impressed with them. Very stiff sidewalls that don't flex in turns, very progressive traction, they definitely let you know they're at their limits before letting free. Grip has been outstanding even in the wet, even with 350hp I still have to really try hard to get it to kick the back end out. As...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

I have only had these on my RAV4 for a few weeks, but I have tested them big time on some snowy roads in Colorado. I noticed right away how much smoother and quiter they we were than my own factory tires. I have an all whelel car but noticed slipping a lot with the original own tires. This happens no more with these tires. I have taken them through some snow...  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 Michelin Pilot Sport PS2

Michelin PS2 are much better than Bridgestone Potenza S02 and S02A. In comparison to Bridgestone's, the PS2 noise level is much, much lower which allows me to hear more things now with motor and driveline that I never heard before. It also canceled some of the droning I heard which now I understand was a combination of exhaust AND tire noise. I almost bought...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

This is a follow-up review. These tires have served for three full Alaskan winters, 42,000 miles. They have about 45% of the tread depth left which means the special compound that gives them their ice traction has worn off. They have performed as I hoped: excellent on ice and snow. Their dry road handling is also excellent which is notable as much of the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

1. Bought these for HPDE events and weekend driving. The car is a heavily modified '07 Mustang GT so handling and power is on par with a Boss 302. 2. Replaced a set of RE-11s that served well on HPDE days over the winter. The car also ran Hankook RS-3 v2 and Dunlop Star Spec I before in similar weather this past weekend (50F87F).3. On a tight fast course...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Had a puncture to the passenger right front while on the hwy. TPMS signaled low tire pressure so I pulled into a service station. Tire was completely flat but supporting the vehicle. I filled the tire back to 36psi to get to a tire repair facility and as soon as i was back on the hwy, the TPMS went off again. I was 43 miles from destination and decided to go...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS

Hands down this is a great tire. This is my second set of 20 inch 97AS' and I could not be more pleased with this tire's performance. They came standard on my car and I drove them hard. The first set gave me a premature wear of only 40,000 miles. But that was purely my fault; again I drive them hard.Moreover, they ride great and take small road bumps very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400

These tires came oe on my wifes corolla. The most surprising thing about these tires was how well the performed in the snow and ice. They are what I would expect from a run of the mill touring tire, they handle well enough in an emergency situation to keep you safe, but beyond that don't expect too much. Overall a good dependable tire, if you are looking for...  Read More
