Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

These tires are on our 07 MB GL450. I was torn between another value tire and a good deal on the Continentals OEM. The Conti's wore out like in 15000 miles. I decided not to go with a value tire as they have not performed well, nor lasted well, nor have any decent ride quality in this vehicle. (Last value tire was a set of Hankooks) These have an 80k mileage...  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 Ecopia EP422 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Nice, quiet tire. It drives well in wet/dry conditions. It's not the best all-season tire I've used in snow. I had General summer tires on a '00 Nissan Maxima that handled snow better than this tire.We bought these from Firestone with the Lifetime Balance/Rotation as well as Lifetime Alignment. After about three years of city, highway, and yearly trips from...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I had Cooper touring tires and I wanted more out of my life. My car also wanted more. I decided to get these tires and honestly they're the best tires ive ever driven. They grip good in the dry and pretty good in the wet. This isn't a soccer mom tire. Honestly after putting them on my Nissan Altima 2001 SE Sedan 2.4L 4cyl, my car feels like it's much faster.I...  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 Premier A/S

This is the first tire review I have ever left on any product. When purchaing tires I always weight heavily on the reviews. The only concern I had was the cost as they are a littel pricey. The Michellin Premier A/S have been the best set of tires I have ever owned. Traction and cornering is better then I ever expected. Wet traction is phenominal. I really...  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 Michelin Premier A/S

Bought the 2012 Lexus ES 350 new. Its is common knowledge that the OEMs wear out fairly quickly. Relocated to south Florida and installed the Michelin Premiers - what a difference! I am a car guy but tires where near a major factor as don't change tires often so hard to really compare. The difference between the OEM Bridgestones to Michelins is night and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I have always bought Bridgestone tires for all of my vehicles. Would highly recommend them for all cars and trucks in all driving scenarios. The original equipment Michelin MXM4 that came on the car barely got to 30K miles. I hope I have great use of these Bridgestones as I have with every set I've purchased before... will review again after putting some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

The grip and handling is outstanding in wet and dry conditions. These tires dramatically improved my confidence on the road. They are slightly stiffer than the OEM tires, but it was worth it in terms of safety. At 30,000 miles, the tread is down to 6/32 inch; it looks like I will get about 35,000 miles total. This is based on mostly freeway driving in urban...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza

Sorry to say this, but these tires are no longer available 🙁. Sad. They were some of the best and longest lasting tires ive ever had. I got 70000+ miles from them, and coming up on 7 years since I bought them. They have been as far north as upper Michigan, & I live in Key West. Several road trip up north and back as well as from Key West to Miami and Ft....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Love these tires...They are the best I ever owned. They're on my wife's RX350. Made such a difference compared to the OEM BridgeStone tires. These are awesome in every way. Very quiet ride.   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 Turanza Serenity Plus

The first set on another vehicle sold this set. I usually don't buy less than 70,000 mile warranty tires, but the previous set's comfort made me select these for the new daily driver. The wear on these is about 16,000 at the current mileage, so almost doubling the mileage warranty. Still has that quiet ride it had from day one. The initial 100 miles was a...  Read More
