Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

Stock All-Seasons (aka no-seasons) that came on a '13 FR-S. On the dry, it's a good tire, allowing to enjoy the car's nimbleness and easy temper. Enough corner traction to put you in trouble, but lets go in a consistent, predictable way.On the wet, it's a good straight-line tire. Never had any problems in regular driving, but ultimate wet cornering grip is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

10000 miles and love these tires. I have tried to push them pretty hard and have not been as to lose traction. They are quiet and predictable. Just rotated and they have worn some, but still have a ways to go.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

These tires were very pricey when I purchased them so I had high expectations. I have an AWD passenger car and live in the Colorado mountains so I needed all weather tires to handle the snow but there are a lot of windy mountain roads.The tires handled well and were very quiet but at 25,000 and two years in, they are shot. I cannot afford to be purchasing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Nice performing tire. Does everything I expected from a tire. It rides comfortably, handles very well, and is quite. Rain and wet conditions are not a problem. Change to snow tires in the winter so I have no comments concerning snow traction.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Think 8/10th - The tires were purchased to replace OEM Conti-s on my BMW 335i. The Conti-s lasted 20K miles, a big improvement over the OEM Conti-s I had on my 2008 911 which lasted less than 12,000 miles. The DriveGuards are a compromise in favor of value - $900 a set compared with the Bridgestone S001s that the BMW dealership recommends, which are $1600+ a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

My Toyota Rav4 2006 Sport V6 originally came with Bridgestone Dueller tires. I had to replace them by 35,000 miles, which are not exactly a long lasting set of tires. Perhaps you thought I drive really hard and all City driving. That could be it except I was able to get 95,000 miles out of my Yokohama Parada Spec X tires! Just a quick review. As you can...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

Came stock on my Camry and in the heaviest downpours I've ever seen in my life, it was decent even at high speed. As it ages it does start to make a noise but I think all tires do. Wear rate was decent considering the rating. A good all around tire that gave me no issues.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Was off put by negative reviews of this tire on snow and ice and was thinking that perhaps I had made a mistake in my purchase. Today, I drove over 120 miles in heavy snow, sleet, and ice over country roads, city roads, and interstate, in every imaginable condition, and lost traction only once traversing a plowed snow pile. This tire is smooth and quiet on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

These were OE on my Quest. For the first year and 10,000 miles, they were excellent. We had over a dozen snow storms and the vehicle tracked perfectly in each one. After the first year, however, the tread was noticeably worn (getting close to wear bars)and even wet traction became poor. After one small snow storm at the beginning of this winter, I knew I had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Great tire! These replaced Bridgestone Turanza 400-02 RFT OEM tires with 14,000 miles which were wearing well, but became very noisy after 10,000 miles. What a difference! Much quieter & very compliant without a loss of handling and unbeatable warranty.. It's difficult to imagine these tires are from the same manufacturer. I'm very glad I chose them and at...  Read More

Very nice OEM on the Subaru Legacy Ltd. Tread wear is almost shocking with 6/32's left after years of carefree driving with regular rotation.   Read More

How Long Do Summer Tires Last Compared to All-Seasons?

As a moderator of several forums, I was recently asked the following question in a forum in regards to the wear of summer tires compared to all-season tires: "Gary, I currently have Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport tires (Ultra High Performance Summer) on my car. However, I do a lot of long-distance travel, and I am thinking that it may be better to get...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Was looking for a tire replacement on our Accord EX V6 (2006) for a while and settled on Conti Pure Contact. So pleased to have done so. We replaced Bridgestone Turanza and the ride comfort has improved tremendously, with a huge benefit of road noise decrease. Whether the fuel economy has gotten a boost is hard to say at this point.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

I replaced by vehicles OEM tires (Bridgestone Turanzas) which had about 50k miles on them, with a set of MIchelin Defenders. I immediately noticed a sharp reduction in road noise and noted the cars ride was much smoother. It seemed as if these tires were made for my cars and I noted my OEM's never produced a ride that I am experiencing now. I recently took a...  Read More
