Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

These tires are really nice lots of traction during wet and dry weather. I noticed these tires work well during heavy rain mine also road smooth and no annoying road sound. But the one down fall is they wear out fast you might get 15k miles out of them if you drive hard on them but Well worth it.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Had a very snowy winter in Reno. Had to drive on snowpack and ice on several occasions. They worked well on all snow, ice , wet and dry pavement.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I purchased a set of Driveguards from my local Cadillac dealership and they installed them with a road force balance. The car originally had Bridgestone Potenza Run Flats. My car now finally rides like a Cadillac because of these driveguards. They are absolutely better than the Potenzas in every way except for cornering. Don't get me wrong my car still...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

What a wonderful upgrade to the Blizzak WS70! Snow ice/performance is stellar as expected. What shocked me was how well the tire behaves in the dry. Unlike my WS70s, these do not exhibit any of the 'loose snow tire feel!' No guilt or pressure to switch them out this way in the springtime, which worked out well with our late winter storm this year.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Noisiest tire ever!! Louder than the shagged Bridgestone Blizzak's they replaced. I bought these tires because they were inexpensive and have an aggressive tread as a compromise to swapping out dedicated snows every year so I did not expect them to be quiet, but holy cow....my normally quiet sedan now sounds like a turbo prop airplane taxiing down the...  Read More

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

These tires are on our 07 MB GL450. I was torn between another value tire and a good deal on the Continentals OEM. The Conti's wore out like in 15000 miles. I decided not to go with a value tire as they have not performed well, nor lasted well, nor have any decent ride quality in this vehicle. (Last value tire was a set of Hankooks) These have an 80k mileage...  Read More

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

These Bridgestone Dueler AT RH-S tires came stock from the factory (P265/65R18 OWL) on my 2009 Silverado Z71 crew cab. Overall, during 51,000+ miles and 6 years, I would rate them as maybe a little better than average. These tires have never pulled a trailer or hauled a load in the bed, and they've been used 50% city/40% highway/10% gravel. I am a stickler...  Read More

Is the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 the Best All-Season or All-Terrain Tire for Snow Traction?

If you've experienced driving through a tough winter season on a top-tier winter tire like the Bridgestone Blizzak DMV-2, you'd agree that a set of dedicated winter tires offer the best traction in snow and on ice. If you are one who doesn't agree with this statement, take a look at "Do Winter/Snow Tires Really Make a Difference?" Winter tires should be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Nice, quiet tire. It drives well in wet/dry conditions. It's not the best all-season tire I've used in snow. I had General summer tires on a '00 Nissan Maxima that handled snow better than this tire.We bought these from Firestone with the Lifetime Balance/Rotation as well as Lifetime Alignment. After about three years of city, highway, and yearly trips from...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I had Cooper touring tires and I wanted more out of my life. My car also wanted more. I decided to get these tires and honestly they're the best tires ive ever driven. They grip good in the dry and pretty good in the wet. This isn't a soccer mom tire. Honestly after putting them on my Nissan Altima 2001 SE Sedan 2.4L 4cyl, my car feels like it's much faster.I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

These were my first set of winter tires. Have since bought winter tires for all my cars. So I'm a believer based on these tires.Took my new driver sons out to learn how to react to a slide in several inches of wet snow. Had them get up to speed and make a turn. I pulled the brake and... nothing. Nothing more than a little slide easily corrected. One son...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

This is the first tire review I have ever left on any product. When purchaing tires I always weight heavily on the reviews. The only concern I had was the cost as they are a littel pricey. The Michellin Premier A/S have been the best set of tires I have ever owned. Traction and cornering is better then I ever expected. Wet traction is phenominal. I really...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Owning a fleet of sedans in New England winters is a feat due to the ever changing weather conditions. Our sedans move people where they need to go no matter the weather so we needed a tire that can be ever capable. Last winter we deployed the Bridgestone Blizzak on the cars; they were a great tire just a bit on the noisy side and wore in odd patterns. So...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I had a set of Nokian WR G3 SUV tires on my previous Subaru and while they gave me great winter performance they were very loud and pretty rough. When I bought the Outback I knew I wanted to replace the factory Bridgestones with something better and I debated about going with a dedicated winter tire but I just didn't want to mess with having to swap tires,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Bought the 2012 Lexus ES 350 new. Its is common knowledge that the OEMs wear out fairly quickly. Relocated to south Florida and installed the Michelin Premiers - what a difference! I am a car guy but tires where near a major factor as don't change tires often so hard to really compare. The difference between the OEM Bridgestones to Michelins is night and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I have always bought Bridgestone tires for all of my vehicles. Would highly recommend them for all cars and trucks in all driving scenarios. The original equipment Michelin MXM4 that came on the car barely got to 30K miles. I hope I have great use of these Bridgestones as I have with every set I've purchased before... will review again after putting some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

The grip and handling is outstanding in wet and dry conditions. These tires dramatically improved my confidence on the road. They are slightly stiffer than the OEM tires, but it was worth it in terms of safety. At 30,000 miles, the tread is down to 6/32 inch; it looks like I will get about 35,000 miles total. This is based on mostly freeway driving in urban...  Read More

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

Sorry to say this, but these tires are no longer available 🙁. Sad. They were some of the best and longest lasting tires ive ever had. I got 70000+ miles from them, and coming up on 7 years since I bought them. They have been as far north as upper Michigan, & I live in Key West. Several road trip up north and back as well as from Key West to Miami and Ft....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Love these tires...They are the best I ever owned. They're on my wife's RX350. Made such a difference compared to the OEM BridgeStone tires. These are awesome in every way. Very quiet ride.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber Arctic LT

Great snow/ice tires! I put these on my Tahoe in Colorado this winter and rarely had to use 4 wheel drive with these babies on. The wear is great but I don't plan on using them year round (only in winter) so that is yet to be determined. But they run circles around the Bridgestone all terrains that I took off for these. Highly recommend for winter drving   Read More
