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

Introducing Bridgestone's Blizzak DM-V2: The Tire to Beat for Winter 2015?

For the past several years the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 has been our highest consumer rated tire among a strong field of competitors in the Studless Ice & Snow (Light Truck) market. While it seems illogical to discontinue such a well liked product, history has proved that the Blizzak line of tires seem to evolve and rarely, if ever, take a step back....  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 RE050A

These are the only tires I've had any experience with on my car. Now that it's time for new tires, I can't see spending that much money on tires used only for summer driving (I have snow tires for winter). If the price were better I'd probably would get the same thing, but then I'd never know if I can get a better ride with different tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport AS

Initial thoughts were there were good OE tires. No complaints. We drive 20 miles a day on our daily commute and once a year go an a family trip by car. Now at 30,000 miles, the treads have REALLY started to wear and will not make another couple thousand miles in confidence (starting to be concerned about rain/light snow conditions).   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 Blizzak WS70

Fantastic tires. Much quieter than I would have guessed. Made an immediate impact to traction on icy side streets and allets. What surprised me most was the road feel--they feel better and quieter than my all season tires from the factory. Less tire slap over things like potholes and expansion joints. Car feels new again! Love these tires and can't wait to...  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 Blizzak WS70

Put these on a little bit to early in the season, however having no traction control, ABS or any of those things and a manuel gear box the ammount of hook in the wet was un real. I never could move in first or second however, these tires I can run through the gears with almost all traction and control. Less understeer in corners and if any, a slight back off...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Was plesantly surprised during our first snowfall of 8 inches...was never stuck during a mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain. Steering response is less than the Bridgestone Potenza I had previously but ride was more cushy.   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 Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

Just put these tires on my 2009 328Ixdrive. They seem Softer then the Turanza EL42 that came with the car. Thus they take potholes better. With The turanzas everytime i hit a pothole i shuddered from the rattling of the car. Not with these. I did get 45,000 miles out of the Turanzas so i hope i get close to that with these. However, with te Poles being a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

I just purchased my second set of WS70's. I had WS60's previously which were also a very good tire, but I noticed that the new WS70's are much quieter than the 60's and they handle better. We just had a sleet/snow storm here in Louisville, Kentucky so I took the car out for a ride on the backroads to get a feel for acceleration and braking traction and found...  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 Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

I bought these tires after getting 55K from the OEM Michelin's. I have never had a better set of tires in the rain, it almost seems as if I am driving on dry pavement. It could be light rain, or downpours, I have never slipped at the intersection or hydroplaned on the expressway. I have not had a chance to drive around in snowy conditions, we just haven't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

These tires rock! Buy them! Steering is softer, handling is softer, and tire noise is louder. The tires provide excellent feel even in the dry. Tire noise on the highway just means I have to turn the radio up! These are amazing tires in wet/snow/ice.   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 Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Didn't rate any 10s - but the tires are way better than the OEM that came on the car from the factory in snow.   Read More

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

FAR better than the OEM EL42. Doesn't even feel like an RFT. Handles very well on dry, good on wet, decent on snow, not good on deep snow even with AWD (you should buy winter tires if you encounter deep snow often), and NO A/S tire is going to be good on ice, so don't expect this one to be. Noise level is significantly better than the OEM, but only good, not...  Read More
