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

I absolutely love these tires. I have owned several large SUV's over the past 10 years and have never gotten more than 50,000 miles on a set of tires. These still had 7/32 of tread left at 87,000 mi and would have gone past 100,000 if I had not picked up a nail that caused me to replace all four so I have even tire size. Needles to say, I purchased another...  Read More

All-Season Tires for the 2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG

With sophisticated all-wheel drive, traction control and weighing 5,622 pounds, you'd expect the 2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG to dominate in the snow. Surprisingly, this isn't the case because there are no all-season or winter tire choices made in the vehicle's 275/50R20 Original Equipment size.  Do you own one of these amazing SUVs, but a few inches of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Out here in Guam it rains 300 plus days a year and stays above 80 degrees year round so I needed a good wet weather tire that could handle potholes, wet corral based asphalt, algae covered asphalt and standing water as well as dry roads unkempt by blind road workers.These tires do the job of handling my digital throttled right foot as well as the road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I drive a 2011 Rav4 all wheel/4wheel drive compact SUV. I had 2 year old all season tires that failed terribly in even the smallest of snowfalls. So after a lot of research I chose these and I am so happy I did. Where I had trouble before, now I don't. Slush to me is worse than ice, and now it's no problem, along with deep snow. It just snowed here 12" and I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Early review, but as usual Blizzak's always deliver!! Always had them on my BMW's, first time putting snow tires on an SUV. What a difference especially with 19 inch rims. Drove comfortably as I need to be at the hospital everyday. I was rolling through the fast lane with Rovers trying to follow and they eventually bailed when the roads became unplowed....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Owned the WS60 on a honda accord 2000 and I felt like I was driving a 4X4. I would drive the accord over the suv I owned. Now I have upgraded to a Honda accord 2013 and the WS70 tire is horrible. One of biggest mistakes I have made. This tire is useless in light snow or snow in general. I am an average driver and care more about getting to my destination...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

For the first time ever, I put dedicated snow tires on my car. Although I have an SUV with AWD with 4WD lockout, I decided to invest in snow tires. The Blizzak set was installed just prior to a very large snowfall here in NW Indiana. I have to say, I was so very impressed with the traction in snow, ice and even the extremely cold temperatures. I cannot tell...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

I love this tire, this is my second set of these. I had them on my 1997 Nissan Truck and knew they would be perfect on our 2007 Pathfinder. The dealer installed the Dunlop AT20 on to the vehicle before we purchased it. After a couple of months they were promptly removed and replaced with the Bridgestones.I feel sorry for the poor souls that bought those...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I only have a short time on the tires. I planned on driving the Expedition 1000mi a year but it might be more now that I've driven it a bit.I used the vehicle during a pretty bad snow storm, rain, and of course in dry conditions. I also got to drive the OEM tires on the Expedition before this one. I also got to drive a similar year Explorer with all season...  Read More

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

These tires do some things very well. They are about a 45000 mile tire on average. But their handling characteristics will transform most SUV's and trucks into handling like a very well mannered car. For me that is what sets this tire apart from the others in this class. It possesses great handling, stopping, on both wet or dry roads, even in snow, these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60

Blizzack LM60 are incredible tires. Worst conditions have been light snow/freezing rain but you would not know it with these tires. RWD Mustangs GT's are not known for their great ability in terrible weather conditions but these tires have you driving by 4WD SUV's. I actually wonder why the SUV's are driving so slow when I look down and see I'm doing 70 mph...  Read More
