Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor

Last set of tires were the Bridgestone Dueler A/T RH, and I do not regret switching to the Goodyears. What an impressive tire! I have taken them everywhere and they always exceed my expectations. They are quiet, ride nicely, and their grip is confidence inspiring. The wear is phenomenal. I have 45k on these now, and they have plenty of tread left. At this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

Overall not a bad tire, however only 23,000 miles and need to replace, This is my second set of tires on my truck, others were Goodyear Wranglers, neither were great tires. When inquiring at Ford dealership, the gentleman at the service desk, offered that he also has a truck and has tried numerous varieties of tires and none have gotten much over 25,000...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Winter is dying down in Ottawa Canada and while shining my tires for the first time since i got them just before winter i realized i should write a review because I loved them that much. Canadian winters are rough, and when people skimp on tires especially all season they end up in the ditch. I have driven in some very bad snowstorms, hard packed snow fresh...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I don't go off road, so didn't want all terrain tires. the stock Goodyear SRA's are just junk, very dangerous in rain, so I didn't even wanna see what snow would be like. I have always been a big believer in winter dedicated tires for winter months. Put the proper dedicated tires on for what the environment calls for, you only have 4 small contact patches of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

After reading all the negative reviews on this tire I had to go out and verify it was the OE tire on my wife's 2010 Subaru. The tires are the OE set and just passed 60k miles on them with zero issues. The dry traction was everything it needed to be and I could pull into traffic with confidence knowing it would not lose traction (AWD helps too). These tires...  Read More

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

Ive had these on my 2010 Tahoe for 1 year (20,000 miles). As soon as they were installed it felt like a different truck. Had Bridegstones on prior to switiching to these Contis, the Bridgestones wore very poorly and made the Tahoe feel like the big truck it is. The Contis made the Tahoe feel more refined and smooth, what a difference. I drive around town and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Had these on an 2008 Range Rover Sport HSE. Put tons of miles commuting from New York City to Vermont in pretty bad snow. How I know these tires work: My friend has the same truck WITHOUT these. I could get up my very steep very long driveway with a hard turn on it. He could not. (Both Range Rovers). That was in 3 feet of snow with an ice base. I plawed the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Over the first week we had these tires drove to Vermont twice. Hit cold, rain, snow, ice, and some mud. They are the best! Last year went with the all seasons on my new QX60 after trading in an 07 Pathfinder. The Pathfinder was an all weather vehicle and something was missing beyond the truck vs cross over. It was the tires. With these tires I am again...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Great winter tire with excellent snow traction, both light and heavy. One of the best non-studded ice tires out there. Unfortunately with BOTH sets of Blizzaks I've owned, treadwear underperforms. I am replacing the Blizzaks on my truck after just over 25K miles since the treads are worn beyond legal limits.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

As I was having the tires installed, the temp. dropped from 30 degrees down to 12 degress... All day it had been lightly raining and snowing on and off... When the temp drop so suddenly, the roadways turned to ice and the Lake Michigan snow machine started to near whiteout conditions. These tires were and are remarkable as my 6-speed manual Jetta responded...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Duravis R500 HD

I purchased these tires to make a cross country trip pulling a travel trailer. They had huge improvements over the Michelins that came with the truck new. No sidewall flex, the ride seams better, possibly since the tire remains closer to round when in contact with the pavement, but best is that they don't puncture as easily. When I took off the original...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

After the hard winter last year, my wife was really concerned with sticking with the all season tires she had. So I did my research and the local tire shop recommended these tires and I have to say I am nothing short of impressed. This past winter in Michigan, we had one of the biggest snowfalls in a weekend. My wife's traverse is FWD and with these tires I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

When I purchased these tires they were not yet available to the public. My purchase was based on reviews and testing done at the Baja Fresh. I knew they were more then capable in an off road scenario and even in snow. The fear was that they would be noisy and perform just plain awful on the highway.These tires over exceeded my expectations. They look really...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Wow! Amazing! These tires make driving in snow FUN! The worse the roads get the more I want to drive. Grip is great. These tires combined with the cars Stabilitrac make it sure footed in slippery conditions. Confidence inspiring. I've tried to find the limits of these tires and so far I've been unsuccessful. They've done everything I've asked for. These...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I am a longtime Blizzak owner. The first set I owned was in 1998 for my Mazda Protege. It's amazing how Bridgestone continues to improve what I regard as the best winter season tire available. I've used DM1V's on my trucks and WS on my cars and crossovers for nearly two decades. They generally last 3 seasons before the multicell compound is broken down and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Overall great snow tire. I have these on my 2014 Camaro, and used them on my 2013 Camaro last year. Makes a car that otherwise would NOT be able to handle snow into a car that drives like a truck with 4WD. A few weeks ago my friend got stuck pulling into a driveway with his new Camry. I got right in no problem.Everyone looks at me like I'm crazy driving this...  Read More

Is the General AltiMAX Arctic the Best Studdable Winter / Snow Tire?

With recent snow falls still making news, many of us our reminded that we still have many weeks (and months in some areas) of winter driving left this season. To see if February is still a good time to purchase winter tires, take a look at "Is it Too Late to Buy Winter / Snow Tires?"   The Bridgestone Blizzak WS80, and Michelin X-Ice Xi3 and Bridgestone...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Rugged Trail T/A

These came with the truck new, replaced the same around 26,000 miles. Replaced the second set around 56,000. Replacing the 3rd set at 111,000 miles. Do not hold up! BUT I'm in stone construction business. Usually dealing with a lot of weight in truck (up to 7000#) and/or towing a bobcat and dumping trailer, (up to 10 tons). So take that with a grain of salt...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I have tried the (oxymoronically named) ultra high performance all season tires from the following major brands: Bridgestone, Michelin, and Pirelli--before trying the Hankooks. The Hankooks are understated in their abilities, but come through when called upon to respond to diverse conditions.Yesterday, when a ladder fell off a truck on the highway in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I have the same tire on my Silverado, so I chose it for the Traverse also and I'm very pleased with it on both vehicles. I know 1000 miles on this set doesn't seem like enough to make some ratings, so they are based on the truck. I'm here to tell you that driving on ice packed roads in excess of 40 mph is not a problem on these tires. We get plenty of days...  Read More
