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

So far ( only 6M miles) the tires are excellent. Too early to tell regarding snow/ice the northeast has been relatively dry thus far. Ask me again in April. The tires are expensive but so far I am not disappointed.   Read More

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

This tire is a wonderful choice for the Tesla Model S for a high performance summer tire. It appears be built with care as my tire shop only needed to add one or no weights to each tire for balancing. They were amazed at this. Also, the tire has no siping or tread cuts at the outer edge. This means that the tires does not throw as many small pebbles as tires...  Read More

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

Had the previous version of this tire the A/S 3. Bought it again because I don't think there is a better tire on the market. For all the nay-sayers about the snow traction...c'mon. This is an ultra high performance all season tire......if you're running them n the snow what do you expect?? I had zero issues with the previous version on the days it snowed in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

This set of Blizzard was installed 1 day before the only big snow storm in New York. After city snow removal, my van was buied in a 4 foot of packed snow/ice mixture. Took me 10 minutes to cleared my driver door entrance only, I was able to drove the van out of my spot. I only had 1 foot of spare room in front & behind my van. My neighbors were shocked to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

This tire is fantastic in snow and on ice, but they have an insane amount of road noise on dry and wet pavement. Handling on dry pavement is typical for any other snow tire, but these truly excel when compared to other snow tires in snow and ice.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I have 16K of mixed summer/winter driving on the Continental True Contacts. Winter handling is great in light, medium, and deep snow. Rarely does Traction Control or ABS activate. These are the best all-season winter handling tires I've ever driven on. My previous tires were Bridgestone RE970 AS Pole Position which were amazing in the summer but virtually...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

I bought these Blizzaks early last winter because the stock BFG MT T/As were greasier than I liked on snow, and I'm glad I did. I just finished my first season with them. They are very good on dry pavement (which we have most of the time even in winter here), and outstanding in snow, ice, or slush. We live on a steep hill and I had no problems coming up in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

This is my second set of the Bridgestone Blizzack Tires. Absolutely trust and love these tires during snow storms in Colorado. Snow and Ice traction is absolutely amazing. Usually take these off during warm and dry days in Colorado and put them back on during the snow storms to prevent wearing them out too quick. This tire handles very well in snow and on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

I have a 2015 Stage 3 Roush modified to 800hp, the stock Cooper tires had zero traction and were best suited for drifting. I have had the 970AS before on my Mustang and loved them so this time I went back to them and love them all over again. Great treadwear but most of all they stick. I always run 36 front and 34 rear to offset engine weight and these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Extremely disappointed with the performance of these tires in any snow depth, especially anything over 2, when I first researched these tires, they rated well for snow, after purchasing and driving in snow for the first time, I was appalled over there poor performance. Went back and rechecked, data had been updated to report poor performance, just reaffirms...  Read More

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

I bought my first set of these for my Malone Stage 2.0 tuned Jetta TDI Sportwagen because the price and reviews made it a little more favorable than the Pilot Super Sport. I was very impressed with how much grip these tires have as the TDI is putting out 333tq to the front wheels. This means hook-up is very challenging.I needed new tires for my 911 and I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

This tire quiets down the normally noisy Honda Accord on the road. It provides a smooth, comfortable ride and good safe traction under all conditions. I cannot believe how well this car performs in snow - front wheel drive V-6 helps of course, but driving it in snow compares well with all wheel drive cars I have driven. Tire wear is even across the tire, of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I bought these with a TireRack complete package including the Ultra Gauntlet wheels, pressure sensors, mounted, balanced, etc. The package bolted right on with no issues. The balance job was excellent with no problems with the ride quality. I was a bit afraid of possible highway noise with such a rugged tread pattern on these DuraTracs, but they are...  Read More

To Stud or Not to Stud

Yes, I ran a 5K in Lincoln Park (Chicago) on January 1st and it was freezing! My stupidity wasn't running in the cold but in forgetting my running shoe "studs" at my cousin's apartment. I managed to beat the young buck but I would have been a lot faster with my studs. When it comes to winter shoes for our vehicles, we do¬†have choices between¬†running studded...  Read More
