Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

THESE TIRES ARE USED IN PARK CITY UT IN A SUBDIVISION UP ON A MTN SIDE. OUR ROADS ARE SO STEEP AND SNOWY THAT THE COUNTY SENDS AROUND A FRONT END LOADER WITH CHAINS ON ALL FOUR WHEELS BEFORE THE SNOW PLOW COMES BY! TEN INCHES OF WET, SLICK SNOW, UNPLOWED AND I HAD NO TROUBLE MOVING, STOPPING OR STEERING AT ALL. THE FEDEX DELIVERY SUV WAS STUCK, AS WELL AS...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I have about 22-23k on this DriveGuard tires, and I can honestly say they are THE BEST tires I've ever owned. This car came with Continental tires from the factory, and they worked, but didn't do anything specially great. I would consider them a middle of the road tire. Since then I had a set of Goodyear's which had a good price, but were really sub standard...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

These came OEM on my Camry and will definitely not be replaced. Undriveable in the winter with even minimal snow, uncomfortable to drive when it rains, and make more noise than my snow tires. At 20,000 miles they're pretty much worn out, I wouldn't be able to finish the summer on them. Looking for a dedicated summer performance tire to rotate with my snows.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Living in New York and daily driving a Mustang in the winter can be stressful, but these tires made all the difference. I was able to drive through several light snow storms without any problems, and these tires got me through some heavier snow fall as well, though I tried to stay off the roads when they were too bad. Overall, these tires gave me the...  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 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 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 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 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 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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

When I was looking for a set of tires for my 2017 Ford Explorer Platinum I had my heart set on purchasing a set of Michelin, because I loved the ride quality along with the ice and snow traction. After reading Tire Rack customer reviews I thought I would trust everyones comments, and give the 245/60R18 Continental WinterContact SI a try. I must say I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I drive a 2012 Audi S4 and the tires given to me from the dealership I originally bought the car from were Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position All Seasons. Those tires were very noisy while driving had decent grip in dry and wet conditions but were AWFUL in the snow. I repeat AWFUL in the snow one slight tap on the brakes in light snow and you were skidding...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I love these tires! I put these on a 2013 Impreza sedan, immediately after I drove off the lot at 11,000 miles. It came with OEM Bridgestones that had 1/3 tread wear, and upon using the on-ramp to drive home, almost immediately broke loose on dry pavement. Next stop was to replace the OEMs with these. Immediately, I was driving an entirely different vehicle,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-25 RFT

I bought these for my winter wheels, because living in Pennsylvania we get enough snow in the winter to merit snow tires. I liked the idea of run-flat tires because of possible punctures from ice in wintry conditions wouldn't have an effect on my mobility. I'd been driving in mostly dry and rainy conditions and liked that they didn't give much more road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I purchased these tires just as the real weather of winter came to the northeast and the timing and results could not have been better. On my way home from skiing in VT a major winter storm moved in and I had to drive on a variety of wet, snowy, slushy, and icy conditions as I made my way home. Traction was perfect at all times, braking and steering feel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I was looking for the Bridgestone Blizzak W80s to put on my Sonata, as I had them previously, but they were out of stock at the time I needed them. Gave these a try, so it's a direct comparison between the two brands.In a nutshell the Michelins are very good, but the Blizzak W80 has them beat on overall snow traction. In moderate snow cover you can almost...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Think that aggressive all-terrain tires are 'good enough' for snow and ice? Consider this: Tested my 2015 f150 xlt against a friends 2016 f150 xlt in a huge,unused,icy parking lot. My Blizzak's and his OEM A/T tires were almost new. Both in 4WD with locking rear diff's on. Tried it with traction controls on and off. Both times I was a few truck lengths ahead...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Bought these tires to be used as winter only tires. I've had them on four winters now and they are starting to fade, they are still really good. I drive pretty aggressively and they have never let me down. I'm in Edmonton Canada, which means lots of ice and snow. cornering, ride and sound are as good as my summer tires. I'd defiantly buy them again.   Read More
