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 Firestone Winterforce

Best snow you will ever buy, period! Everyone who complains about how bad their car is in the winter, I tell them about this tire. Every single person has come back amazed. They can't believe it's the same car. People who think their all season tires are good, haven't tried a true snow tire. Not even close, these tires will walk circles around them. My dad...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce LT

I live in Syracuse NY (just like Buffalo) Snow town USA. I purchased a set of 4 studded snow tires, after driving around on all season and I have to tell you the change was outstanding, no more white knuckle driving. These tires recently went through a snow storm, we are talking 6 to 8 drifts with a standard 3 to 4 mealy snow, the complete way to work. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

I drive in the snowbelt of NE Ohio. 4 wheel drive is a must if you want to get to work in the morning before the snowplows have had time to get to the roads. I have been driving in the snow for 35 years. This is the best tire I have ever purchased. There is some road noise but I will except that for how well they perform on the Ice and snow. I will be buying...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Very impressive. I've had these, Firestone Winterforce, and Blizzak WS-80's. The overriding plus is great slush and ice traction, coupled with a quiet highway road. It's hard to rate absolute performance vs. the WS-80's, since these are on the FWD Focus while my WS-80's are on the beastly (in the snow) AWD Subaru. But in braking and cornering, and general...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I like these tires. I bought these tires several months ago, but didn't get any real driving in because I was having some work done on the car. I'm only writing this review because I'm highly impressed with these tires. Today is 4th of January and it is a slightly rainy day in Western, PA. I drive 60 miles one way to work I do not normally drive this car in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Moved from Firestone Firehawk {OEM] to this tire. The ride and control are awesome! Like riding a rail. Yes they were expensive, but the control is incredible. Control on wet surfaces are the same as on dry. Bought this tire due to the need for extensive winter driving in the Northeast and I have not been disappointed. Just a wonderful experience.Control...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Transforce AT

Bought a full set for my crew cab on recomendation of mechanic at teh shop I normally go to, never again. I only remembered later on that a 92 4x4 my parents used to have had the same tires, and it could get stuck in less then 5in of snow. On my Crew cab the only time these tires had any wet pavement traction was when I had a good load in the bed, but when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I first got the truck I put Nitto Terra Grappler 305/70/16 on the truck. I liked the load range E and the look of the tire. after 15-k miles they got noisy and would not pull the boat out of the water. they had no traction on the launch ramp. they wore out fast and had no wet traction by 15-k I look at tire tack ratings on the Firestone Destination A/T. they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Excellent set of tires. I replaced my original set of firestones that gave me 40k miles with these mitchelin defenders. Instantly I felt like I was driving on pillows for the first 50k miles. They are slightly louder since then but just as quitet. Only complaint is it falls short of the 90k mile gaurentee.im at 80k and could probably get 5 k more but I'd...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

I change from the OEM Bridgestone Dueler that are basiclly the worst tires for this vehicle, to these bread on butter Firestone destination LE2 tire. This tire made the car change from good to best. The steering is smooth and responsive, good on wet no slippage whatsoever,excellent on dry, i dont go off road but i have a set on a Toyota land cruiser Prado...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

This has been my fourth winter and coming up on my fourth summer. I never changed them and they are fine with plenty of tread and more than 45K miles on the tires. They have performed real well in the summer. I rotate and balance every 3 months regardless of mileage. It's a rather noisy tire, I just turn up the music. It's very good on snow, and hardpack,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

After much research, I bought a set of these for my 4x4 f150. I'm a cdl truck driver 10+years, so please don't listen to all the whiny people who can't drive on snow, And don't have a clue what they are talking about.This is the best all around tire I have found for light pickups/ SUVs. What I like is they are a strong- well made tire! Great traction, great...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

I have been extremely happy with these tires after using Yokahama Avid touring the last two sets. EVERYTHING about these tires is great except the road noise MAY be a little more than the Yokahamas. Would definitely buy again and I am getting a set for me other vehicle soon. A+++++ I have never been excited about tires before :)   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I bought the Firestone Destination A/Ts based on their very high ratings in the Survey section at Tire Rack. In the past, I always thought Michelin made the best tires, so I was somewhat skeptical of switching to the Firestone brand. After 11 months and 19,000 miles of driving, it's clear that the Firestone Destination A/T is the best tire that has ever been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

I am a bit of a tire geek and a believer that you buy a tire for a certain function. Know what you need it to do, and then decide on a tire accordingly. Do not assume that any tire with a good rating will make you happy. I have aggressive performance tires on my sports car. For the SUV, I have a set of LRR highway tires, and a set of dedicated snow tires....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

WOW!!! What a tire! I bought mine four years ago from TireRack already installed on steel wheels...what a great move on my part. I've driven them on my Dodge Grand Caravan (with the big motor...3.8 liters) and have lost traction while accelerating ONE TIME, and that was on glare ice. Packed snow and really cold ice are no challenge for this winter performer....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

This tire has been great on our Ford Escape. Great traction during the warmer weather with rain. It provides great traction too! I was very surprised how I aggressive I could drive and the tires would grip and the car would not slip. The tires are still newer so I can't really speak for tread wear yet. I rotate them every oil change/3000 miles so they should...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Studs installed and the tires perform securely. Bought the tires for winter driving only and this is the third season and would /will buy again. I do mostly back road driving, hills and sharp corners my suv sticks securely to the road. Not worried about any noise from the tires. The studs do sound like you have stones stuck in tires on dry pavement. When I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I bought these tires based on tirerack reviews to replace BFG Rugged Trail T/A's which were junk at 25K miles, especially in snow. (see my review 12/6/2012) I am thrilled with these Firestones! They now have 25K miles on them and there has been very little performance decline, even in snow,(they are NOT classified as a snow tire) and we have had plenty...  Read More
