Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400

Typical O.E. tire quality and performance. Standard ride comfort, squeals easily during cornering, limited traction in wet and light snow. Compared this tire on O.E. wheel set and Volk CE28n wheel set, identical sets of 225/55r18 Duelers H/L 400. Both tire sets were O.E. on 2015 Subaru Forester XT Touring models with similar manufacturing dates.Currently...  Read More

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

I'll start off by saying that this is a great tire. Im located in Seattle Washington and these tires handle the rain very well and they handle great in the snow. I go back and fourth between the city and the pass every weekend in the winter and these tires handle snow and rain like a champ.Wether it be packed snow on the freeway or 6 inches of fresh snow on...  Read More

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

Love/hate relationship. Tire handles well, great balance of safety in dry and wet, in light snow and wintry situations. WORST noise I have ever experienced from any tire I've purchased in the past 35 years. My mechanics tell me they are not wearing evenly and I am fastidious about correct pressure and rotation. Perhaps I got a bad set, but I'm not coming...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Was disappointed in the light winter we had but....Wet, slushy, icy,heavy snow; 10 pm drive home, passing everyone, looked down, 75 mph, felt like 45. Pretty much says it all for a snow tire. Couldn't wait to get 'em off come spring, but performed as advertised and at least 3 more winters in them. Couldn't be more confident driving my car in the winter....  Read More

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

Dry and wet weather driving is good, I have not had the opportunity to drive in deep snow or ice, so I can't comment on those driving conditions.   Read More

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

I love these tires!!! 22,000 miles and hardly no wear! My last Ram came with Goodyear Wranglers which lasted 31,000 miles before I picked up a razor blade on the highway and destroyed one. The tire store recommended these and I couldn't have been happier. After 5,000 miles I traded trucks and I insisted they swap the Goodyears on the new truck for these...  Read More

Best All-Season and Snow Tires for Your 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE

Does your Jaguar F-TYPE lie parked in the garage during the winter months just begging to be driven? Even a weekend spin is not advisable with sticky summer tires during cold, wintry conditions. The Jaguar F-TYPE is too great a car to store away for months at a time! Performance Winter / Snow tires will give your F-TYPE some grip on cold days and snowy...  Read More

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 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 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 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 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 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
