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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

When my OEM tires contiseals lasted about 50K, so I started to look for a good set of tires that would fit my car. First replacement I bought from local Costco Michelins pilot sport A/S3 as I (was) a big fan of Michelin brand. 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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I got these tires as replacements after my second set of Continental ContiProContact SSR. These tires have handled significantly better than the Continentals ever did. I have drive these through snow, rain, and sun. I live in Wisconsin and a snow storm hit ~2 weeks after I got these and I am glad I did. They sound nice and have held their tread pretty well....  Read More

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

This tire is awesome. You just know how special it is, from the moment you start driving...When you cross over any kind of painted surface in the road, you can tell just how sticky the tire is...it sounds like Velcro being ripped apart. I took a VERY SHARP highway exit ramp, at breathtaking speed, I thought I was going to be thrown out of the side window, a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

These tires are great in rain. Excellent ride quality as well. If you're looking for a run flat, these are a great choice. Can't really give a meaningful review on snow/ice performance, but for wet and dry conditions, these are truly great tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

In the past I always would purchase the Bridgestone Revo's on one ton trucks vans ETC. This tire has far exceeded my expectations. It is very quiet for a truck of this size, the ride is so much better. Most of the time I have a trailer being pulled behind with another car on it.Very confident handling, I have not tried them in snow yet, but looking at the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I have had these tires for (3)-winters now. I noticed a significant difference as soon as they were put on. The grip and traction they apply in the snow is great. My truck no longer slides or slips in the snow, even in 2WD. Turning is sharp, acceleration is just like on dry pavement.I have driven this down roads with more than 4-in of snow with complete...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

I swear by these tires in the winter. I have been using Blizzaks for about 10 years. This is my 10th set (we have 3 cars). They are not the best wearing tire but I don't expect them to be. I put between 15-20 thousand miles on all of my cars every year. I live in Pennsylvania - we get 100 degree summers, -5 degree winters, more rain than snow but when it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

June 2016. I bought my car used, 18 months ago. It had a fairly new set of Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position tires. Dealer said they were a great tires for this car.i soon learned that the tires gave a very hard ride...I think because the tire wouldn't flex as much as my Goodyears that I have bought for all my cars during the last 25+ years. Also, to...  Read More

I replaced my original bridgestone insignia tires with continental true contact at around 53K miles in my 2011 corolla.

After putting 2000 miles on these tires and driving in both dry and wet conditions I am happy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

This is a follow up review from my original I wrote after only 500 miles. Now with 6500 miles and having driven in snow, on ice, in rain, on nasty city streets (I live in Chicago), on Interstate, State, and county highways I can say that purchasing these tires was the best decision I have made. I live in Chicago but cover a sales territory from Detroit, MI...  Read More
