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 Michelin Defender

I bought my 2008 CR-V as a certified preowned car from my Honda dealer in 2011. It was in mint condition, had every possible option, and only 23,000 miles on it. HOWEVER, it had those ---awful Bridgestone Duelers that my '97 CV-R came with when I bought it brand new. My mechanic, who checked it out before I bought it, noticed that it had two different models...  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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature CS

Less than 50 miles, too soon to provide any meaningful rating so will update as we accumulate mileage. But this is to provide a history, and no better place to start than at beginning. About 12k mi/year, combined DC Metro beltway & city. My wife & toddler's car.Day after hurricane Sandy...less than thrilled with wet traction on the OEM Bridgestone Duelers...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422

Purchased new set of 4 tires for 2007 Honda CR-V Nov 15th. MPG has decreased from 25-27 (depending on city/hwy ratio) to 22.3 with same routes. Not happy at all with the loss. Rest of tire's stated attributes appear to be dead on. Will talk with dealer to see if this has been recurring issue. May trade out for different tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Stock tires on 2010-13 Subaru Legacy with 17 alloy wheels are the Turanza EL400-02. They were reasonably acceptable on my 2010 Limited model, however, for 2013, the Legacy's suspension was tightened up to decrease body roll by 40%, resulting in an ultra-stiff & harsh ride except on only the smoothest of roads. The base model with 205/60/16 tires isn't as...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

I can't believe I've had these tires for 18,000 miles. I asked my tire dealer what he thought as he rotated them last week ($80 for staggered low profiles. He spent 1 1/2 hours turning them inside out) He thought they were good for another 10k. I doubt it but the bridgestones that were on last only made 15k before they were eaten by the Jag.I am shocked with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T RH-S

When I bought the Jeep and saw the Duelers, I asked the dealer if they would swap them for the Goodyear Wranglers, on another vehicle. They wouldn't, and I was extremely skeptical, of the tires. This was due to my experience with the Dueler D684s that came on my wifes 04 Suzuki XL-7. They were terrible, and wore out at 15K.These however have been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

WOW! For the price of a new set of tires I am driving a new car. My 2009 Volvo XC70 T6 has never handled so well. Not in the 27,000 miles of the soft, non-descript boulevard ride with the OEM Continental 4x4 Contacts. Not in the 225 miles of the better-but-bumpy, out-of-round Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires that were returned to the dealer for...  Read More

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

Well I bought another set, but 684 II. Tires would have lasted longer but I had a slow leak that caused excessive wear. Finally found dealer who was able to find and repair correctly. That gave me another 5k, I could have gone a bit longer but I will be pulling a uhaul shortly and wanted to be safe. I was very satisfied with these tires.   Read More

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

This was the stock tire, and the end mileage was a disappointment. The RX450h is an interesting vehicle, but it is certainly not overpowered. My wife's driving style is somewhat impatient, but acceleration is not spirited. Braking and cornering are slightly aggressive. We ran the tires at around 35 psi for most of their life as recommended by the dealer, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Fortera HL Edition

Tires came with vehicle.Have not yet driven them in snow.Traction seems ok in the rain,but they will hydroplain in some conditions.My biggest concern and I've checked with Goodyear tire dealers and called the 18003212136 number and I still get conflicting stories about why the sidewall tread patterns go forward on one side of vehicle and face rear of vehicle...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

Replaced the OME Dunlops with 33k on them and what a difference! Read reviews from various sights and blogs and choose this brand. Initial drive home from the dealer remimded me of the 1st time I drove it home brand new. Comfort and noise level amazing, held up well to cornering offramps and on center steering very responsive. Tire profile looks good! Tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity

I had to buy new tires for my car almost immediately after buying my new vehicle. The car came with Hankook tires. Absolutely horrible. Since the tread passed inspection, the dealer couldn't replace them. I did a lot of research to find a good set of touring, all-weather tires, and these Turanzas w/ Serenity had great reviews. Since I bought them, I have...  Read More

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

Excellent tires with the exception that one blew out on my wife's 09 Yukon XL Denali at around 43k miles. Right at the seem. Bridgestone/Firestone dealer said because she drove about 1/8 mile on no air (had to find a good place to pull over) they would not cover it. I guess she should have just parked on the railroad track according to them or blocked...  Read More
