Dodge Journey Tire Options for 19" Wheels

First offered in 2008, the Journey comes in multiple trim levels, each with optional wheel and tire sizes. Owners of some SXT and RT models came equipped with 19" wheels shod in 225/55R19 Kumho Solus KH16. Every owner who has had to replace their Original Equipment tires has quickly found that they do not have many options. This is unfortunate as the O.E....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I drove from Durham NH back to central Maine during the snowstorm last wed afternoon and had no problems with loss of traction on either interstate or secondary roads. I purchased the Tirerack recommended tire/wheel package and am completely satisfied. I had to pass many vehicles which came to complete stops on small hills(about 0.5mi long),probably using...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I bought these tires for my 2005 Ford Crown Victoria after several winters of getting stuck on a level surface with one inch on snow on it. This car is probably the worst possible vehicle to drive in winter conditions, so I thought it would be a good test vehicle for these tires. So far here in cleveland we have had rain, snow, ice, and slush. These tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I can't contest for the mileage yet as I just purchased these less than 1000 miles ago. As for every other aspect of this tire,,,,,, WOW, I've owned winter specific tires in the past (Bridgestone's WS60, Firestone's and Dunlop's)The Bridgestone's were hands down a superior tire over the Dunlop's and Firestone's. But these Pirelli's have changed my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

These tires are awesome! Like having 4 wheel drive. Last two winters were a nightmare with the factory tires. Upgraded to these with a set of rims on recommendation from a friend with a 3 Series, he loves 'em. Have driven in snow and in icy conditions, tried to make them lose traction, had to push it real hard to break them loose. He said they do wear very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

This is my first set of snow tires. I've always used all season tires, but never again. I put them on in November. I was a little worried that they would be rough or loud on dry pavement, but they are nice and quiet. Of course handling isn't as good as normal summer tires on dry pavement, but the compromise is acceptable. Snow is where these tires are worth...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

The tires are truly a very good tire. That was one of the biggest reasons that I got the Blizzak WS70 and the price was extremely affordable. The reviews compared to other tires were not even close to these brand for the winter. And other people and reviews I read I really didn't hear anything bad about them except for that I would be extremely happy with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I bought a set of four of these tires for my 2014 Cruze. These tires have been the best investment I have made. Recently we encountered a horrible ice storm in Pittsbugh and I had to drive to work. These tires saved my life. I was able to drive on black ice in my car and maintain control around bends, down hills, and up hills. To give you an idea how bad...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

First thing first, I,,replaced the O.E.tires(Bridgestone Dueler),that came with my vehicle when I purchased it. Those tires were not going to survive winter driving conditions.Regardless of your all-wheel-drive system, the most important factor in poor driving conditions, is tire traction.I, previously had excellent experience with Continental A/S DWS, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is my first set of winter tires on this car, and my first set of studless winter tires. On previous vehicles, I used studdable winter tires such as the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 1 and the Firestone Winterforce. While those performed fine in winter conditions, they were definitely noisy and rough riding. Not so with the Blizzaks. The ride is smooth and while...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I bought these tires for my lady friend's AWD FX45. This car splits its time between New Jersey and Vermont, and traverses between the two every winter. I drive the car frequently. They are terrific tires on the Interstate and on local roads, both paved and unpaved. I am not consciously aware that I am on snow tires when driving on dry roads, but in snow,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Love it and hate it. I have been using Blizzak tires on my vehicles every winter for the past 20 years and have always been impressed with their performance under adverse conditions. They deliver as promised. However, there is a downside. Two issues in particular. Road noise is quite noticeable even when new, but increases significantly as the tread wears...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Any one that has driven in snow and bad winter weather with these tires will tell you there is no equal. No All-Season tire can match or even come close. They are surprisingly quiet and give a very smooth ride. The traction gives you the feeling that you are glued to the road. The only down side to these tires is they wear faster than an All-Season and will...  Read More

Between AWD and 4 BStone Blizzak - it doesnt get better than this ! Just wath your rear view mirror since others have less control under all winter conditions - cold, snow and sleat!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Knowing that I am making a definite trade off in handling for better winter weather traction, I am quite pleased. Going from a lower profile M+S sport touring tire to a Winter/snow tire is very much (in my case) going from the feel of a sport/touring car to that of a small (yet capable) pick-up truck/SUV. Pushing hard, in conditions that my other tires would...  Read More
