Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

These tires replace a set of Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza that are about 6 years old with 5/32 tread depth and significant cracking on sidewalls and between the treads. After having the tires mounted and balanced, I immediately took a 1,100-mile road trip with three passengers, our camping gear, and the gear for a fourth person in our group who was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

So far I am extremely happy with the Continental Cross Contact LX20 tires. I was between these and the Bridgestone Dueler 422 Ecopia. Decided to go with the Continentals because they were rated a bit higher for snow and we are in Wisconsin. Just went over 28,000 miles and we have 10/32 on the front tires and 9/32 on the rear tires. Traction has been very...  Read More

This first review is for TireRack. I ordered the tires by phone on Friday at about 11 am, Pacific Time. I was away from my house most of Saturday, the NEXT DAY, and when I returned, the tires were in my garage! Had them mounted and balanced this morning and drove to work..I was changing from the OE Goodyear F1 SuperCar tires. They had 40,000 miles (I avoid...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Put these on my VW Touareg because the Goodyear LS that were OEM skated all over the place on water and ice/snow. Blizzaks have been excellent. I drive in a city where streets are plowed instantly so no big deal, but also a lot of driving into Indiana and Michigan along the snow and ice along the western lake shore and its scary treacherous at times. Drive...  Read More

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

Long time listener, first time caller. I've used tire rack to support my tire purchasing decisions and as a way to promote vehicle safety to family and colleagues for years.When it came time to replace the OE tires (Dunlop Sport SP 01 A/S) on my daily driver, I did a considerable amount of research including talking with the experts here at TR. I enjoy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

Got these to replace stock re-050. After 8 sessions NASA hpde 3 in utah the tires maintained steady temps and pressure (ran 33f 37r) even tire wear no rollover. Excellent steady state grip. They respond quickly to fast transitions without being nervous. Hard braking is sure, repeatable and steady with no rearend wiggles. They don't communicate as loudly when...  Read More

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

Fantastic tire, precise, quiet, comfortable and just simply great handling. It provides great feedback without ever being noisy or harsh. Fantastic grip, on both, dry and wet conditions.Wears really fast, although that's to be expected given their UTQG rating and the fact I never try to change my driving style to protect them from wear. I'm about to purchase...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Absolute best tires I've ever owned for winter driving conditions   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I absolutely love these tires. I've been buying them for 4+ years now and hugely prefer them over the Pilot Super Sports. You can't get better grip then what these tires give you. When I'm buying tires, I'm only looking for dry weather performance. These aren't bad in the rain by any means, but I take it really easy when the roads are wet so I don't want to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

smooth, quiet, comfortable. really good handling/control in wet weather and decent in dry for an all-season RFT. would say this is the best RFT I have had any experience with. own a 2015 BMW 328i sport wagon with M sport package and Bridgestone max performance RFT...which are also very nice for RFT's. also own a 2015 BMW 428i with Pirelli RFT's that are very...  Read More

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

This is the 4th set of Duelers I have had. All have been great tires for the money...quiet, easy riding yet reasonably responsive and great wet traction. This set replaced Continental run-flats that were good tires but much harsher in every regard than the Duelers. The improvement in ride quality and noise level of the Duelers made the cost of an emergency...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Original tires were BFG Trail TA which were absolute junk. I replaced them with Bridgestone AT Revo's which are an amazing tire for this truck. I could go through snow and ice without having to use four-wheel-drive whereas the BFG's I had to use for four wheel drive in the same conditions. The only drawback with the AT Revo's is I could barely get 30,000...  Read More

Better Fuel Mileage with Your Tires

With the tire being the only thing contacting the road while you drive, it becomes obvious that the tire plays a roll in your vehicle's fuel economy. This characteristic is referred to as "Tire Rolling Resistance". There are a few nuances to keep in mind when examining tires and fuel economy. It has been proven that as a tire wears, it becomes less resistant...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Not cheap; but appears to be an excellent value for the money. Ride is quiet and really smooth. Less noise than I experienced on the LTX M/S and LTX M/S2 that I put on my '03 Expedition. These are on my daughter's'06 Pacifica, which is a much lighter vehicle. It's really too early to judge; but treadwear is not noticeable after 5K miles. Wet and Dry Handling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I've owned the tires for one month and 1500 miles. After reading the other reviews, I agree with the superb handling and the quiet ride. I really like these tires over the stock Michelin's that came with my car. The handling really improved and the tires were much quieter. The jury is out on treadwear looking at other reviews and I will be updating this...  Read More

Amazing tread life!!!! 133,000 miles on one set of tires. Unbelievable. Buying another set. I drive 80,000 miles a year for business and tread life is very important to me. Love these tires so much that I won't gamble on testing another set.   Read More

When my OEM tires contiseals lasted about 50K, so I started to look for a good set of tires that would fit my car.

I drove on them about 300 miles and what I noticed that the were very noisy but with good handling response tires, so I took them...  Read More
