Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I am thoroughly impressed with these tires. Theyou are far better than the older Blizzaks like the ws70. On icy roads, they grip well and provide good traction. I am surprised how well they do in deep snow despite shallower treads. The big test, however, will be how they perform once they have worn down a little. My ws70s started out well but we're useless...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

These tires are designed with practicality in mind. It's quiet, smooth, and lasts a long time. Just don't count it for high performance driving. It still does well in emergency maneuvers for avoiding those drivers not paying attention. I personally prefer to have a bit more grip for higher speed cornering. It could be the car where it just likes to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I used DWS 205/50's on the 16 rims that came with the car but found them to be ineffective in change of season slush or wet snow even brand new or wet roads at less than 4/32nd. I used 185/65-15 General Arctic winter tires and found them satisfactory as a summer tire when they were too worn for effective winter use. In August, I exchanged the 16 alloy rims...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

These tires replaced Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position that replaced the OEM Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 on my Acura TSX. The Michelins had poor dry traction as the tires aged and were just ok in snow. The Bridgestones were excellent in all aspects except the winter season. They were terrible on ice or light/heavy snow, to the point that I needed to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have survived seven PA winters using performance all-season tires but knew it was just a matter of time before my Mustang got stuck and left me out in the cold. I did my research and opted for a set of WS80 Blizzaks for my factory rims and purchased a set of new wheels / tires for the rest of the year.My previous set of tires were Michelin Pilot Sport A/S...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

After driving for 5 years on Yokohama YK580's, I finally looked into a different tire. I did not realize what a difference a tire could make. With the Yokohama's, this vehicle slips and slides, the traction control barely worked. After having these Blizzaks installed, my vehicle was a totally different animal. I am an aggressive driver, and these tires make...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Compared to my previous Michelin Pilots these get 5% better mileage, wear better and are very quiet. They handle fine, but I don't drive aggressively so can't say they'll be appreciated by boy racer types. They're big drawback is snow performance, whether it's just an inch after the road has just been plowed or in deeper stuff. These are only a step above...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

after 26 track days these tires still have tread left on them. They are very predictable while at the limit. I feel they have lasted very well and provided great performance.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This was my first winter tire purchase and I have zero regrets about buying it. I think one of the most important benefits of this tire was the confidence of its performance driving in snow or rainy conditions. It's handling in adverse weather is incredible compared to my previous all-season tires.The tire is a bit noisy as can be expected by the tread...  Read More

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 Dynapro HP2

I recently purchased a full set of Hankook Dynapro HP2 tires to replace the OEM Bridgestone Dueler's on our 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum in 20 P235/55R20. The OEM tires lasted about 30,000 miles with regular rotation ever 7,500 miles. I was a little skeptical about the Dynapro HP2 but have to say, after driving them in the dry, rain and in some light New...  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
