Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684 II

These are replacement OE tires and after 30,000 miles I am having a completely different experience than I did with the original tires. So far no unusual wear and very good treadwear overall. Initially, I resisted the dealers plan to replace with the same Bridgestone tire, but I was wrong and these tires have been great.   Read More

Conquer the Snow with Your Jeep Grand Cherokee

About twelve years ago, our SUV-test fleet consisted of 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokees. Since then, we've had sportier SUVs like the Touareg and Cayenne. However, there's a part of me that misses the Grand Cherokee. There is something about sitting in a Jeep that makes you feel like you're unbounded and that you can travel anywhere. And apparently, there are many...  Read More

Be Safe in Your Sonata: Winter / Snow Tire Options for Your Sixth-Generation 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata

For the longest time, the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord dominated the mid-size sedan game. Then Hyundai crashed the party with the Sonata! The sixth-generation 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata has been particularly competitive but it still needs dedicated winter tires for the safest winter handling. When it comes to balancing snow and dry road handling, each one of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I am a licensed mechanic and car dealer for over 25 years and now an RV dealer and am very impressed with this tire. My 2012 Camry Hybrid XLE came with Bridgestones and barely got 31000 miles before wear bars showed. I researched all tires available with low rolling resistance and the Yokohama was rated 1st above all the others and ended up being the lease...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

For the winter this tire is the best tire I have ever bought. I bought these tires for winter driving only. The one problem with these tires is on dry pavement and when you have the transfer case in Auto or 4 wheel the front tires fight against the rear tires causing a popping sound and feel in the front end. I have taken it to my auto dealer and had the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Chicago had a brutal 2013/14 winter, so these tires hit the full gamut from light to deep snow, packed to fluffy and ice. Compared to the OEM Bridgestone tires, these blew them out of the water. They are a little louder, but not that much. Gas mileage stayed about the same. Compared to other tires for this vehicle, these didn't break the bank and have...  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 Turanza EL400 RFT

Original equipment tires. Started getting noisy after 5000 miles. Mostly long distance highway driving, with camping gear. NO, off-road driving. Even with rotating every 4000 miles, air pressure checked monthly and alignment twice a year, they started wearing on both inner and outside front tire edges faster than center tread and rotating just made all look...  Read More

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

Had these tires for 25,000 So. Florida miles, so hot/humid sub-tropics. Moved to NYC metro area and made huge mistake replacing Dueler Alenzas with Toyos (at Volvo dealer suggestion) but they rolled so badly when make sharp lateral movements that the accident or rollover potential was quite real. Quickly replaced with Duelers and have now driven in snow....  Read More

Don't Let a Little Snow Stop Your Ford Fiesta ST

Did you visit your Ford dealer to test drive a Focus ST but end up with a 2014 Fiesta ST instead? You can't go wrong either way, however it's hard not to be swayed by the Fiesta ST's amazing power-to-weight ratio. 197 horsepower moving a mere 2,720 pounds gives you go-kart handling with plenty of power. This is all fun until winter, as the vehicle's low...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

Got these based on TR reviews to replace OEM Bridgestones Duellers which were harsh and noisy. They were a vast improvement in comfort and handling, and noise. Now we have 34,000 miles on them and the noise is unbearable. It started getting gradually noisy at 25,000 miles, now it almost sounds like a mechanical problem but the tire dealer said it was the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

This tire would not balance on my car...period!! The dealer had to use 24 & 26lb weights (which is unheard of) and they still wouldn't balance. I don't know how many people had the same issue, but i definetly wouldn't reccommend them for the G35x. Infiniti owners, save yourself the trouble and get bridgestone blizzaks.They're not as soft as the generals and...  Read More

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

I instated Revo 2's on my trunk - not so much that I needed AT capability, but I liked the look and had previously been happy with the original Revo on another vehicle. At 26000 miles I had to swap because I was losing grip too often (on the road). I had installed Alenzas on my wife's '10 4Runner so decided to skip the aesthetics and purchase an adult tire....  Read More
