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 Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor

49000 on these tires and will go for at least another 5000. If I had rotated as often as I should these could easily have gone 60k plus. Not great in mud. Traction wet and dry is going away now that they are 80% gone. I'm going to buy another set but in 20 instead of 17's. You will be tired of looking at these tires before you wear them out.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Exceeded the millage warranty as I travel regularly in my auto, and found they are ready to be replaced. I do drive spirited and up and down Hwy I95 daily. These tires have held up really well compared to factory installed Goodyears. They are now getting noisy but again over the warranty, drove in both dry and wet weather and had great traction in both.Just...  Read More

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

I have put 40,000 miles on these tires, and I will be putting on a set of the newer AS3+ this weekend. I have been buying, researching, and driving tires for 2 decades. I am a true car guy, and I love driving, and I really wanted to drive the -------- out of these to see what they could do. First, I know it may sound crazy, but I never once rotated them. Yet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D

I put these on my new 2016 Impreza (16x7 Moda rims) and so far they have been excellent in the couple of storms we've had in Denver. I've driven them out in the Summit county mountains over completely snow covered passes and they performed perfectly without hesitation. I was mainly concerned with noise and comfort and these perform as well if not better in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Very happy with these tires. Replaced the stock Goodyear's on my G37x. Excellent dry weather traction. Even more impressive is the wet and light snow traction. Traction feels nearly as good as dry traction, an impressive feat (have not had an opportunity to try deep snow yet). Also very happy with the extremely smooth and quiet ride from these tires. Would...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Winter

I would probably think twice about buying directional tread tires again because of restrictions on rotatiing, but traction in snow and slush is great.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

OE tires, so expectations have been muted. They've been overall decent tires, fairly quiet on the highway, pretty good dry performance, but not really that good in wet or icy conditions. Compared to other tires I've experienced, they have a tendency to hydroplane. Snow and ice traction is average at best, and I've generally tried to avoid driving this car on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I purchased these Pirada SpecX's for my 2003 Murano solely based on the reviews I read here. I bought this vehicle new and they came stocked with Goodyear Eagles. Ride and traction and wear was average. I replaced them with a set of Michelins from Costco Tire. Wear and traction again average. The ride, not so much. They turned my SE into the ride of a pickup...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

These tires were recommended by the dealership. I was skeptical, but, bought them as replacements for the original equipment Goodyear Forteras. These Continentals have been a great all around tire. I will definitely buy them again. They are far superior to the Forteras.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

This is not really to review the tire as much as the purchase. Hands down the best price for these tires was at the tire rack. I was leery about buying tires online but it all went smoothly. The tires were shipped the day I purchased them and arrived two days ahead of the expected delivery date. The installer, Goodyear, held to their price listed at the Tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Bought these to replace the dreadful Goodyear Assurance's that were on the car when I purchased it. These tires have been great. The traction they have in the rain is unparalleled to any tires I've ever owned. While other's slow down in the rain, I am able to just keep pushing forward, I never feel the least bit unsafe. They really give me a sense of safety....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Purchased 4 of these in April '16. I drive as a courier up and down the east coast usually averaging 8K-10K miles a month so I go through some tires pretty quickly. This was the first set of tires I have bought for a Prius. I have always bought performance Goodyear tires in the past when I was buying for Crown Vic ex-police vehicles I used in my business. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

As others have noted, this tire is narrow, which I wasn't expecting. You have to be careful not to damage your wheels, since they are more exposed with this narrow tire. The tires handle well, and the road noise is minimal.Compared to the Goodyear OEM tires on the Maxima, they are quieter, but the rolling resistance must be higher. I could tell...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

Purchased these tires because I wanted a great all around tire for the Northwest where we get a lot of rain and a little snow. I wanted a quiet tire that performed well. I previously had the Goodyear Tripletreds and they provided amazing traction but were a pretty noisy. After reading reviews I went with the General Altimax rt43 which was made in America for...  Read More

Different Sizes Within a Size?

Did you know that some tires can vary in dimensions slightly, even if they have the same nominal size? 99.9% of the time, the differences won't cause any problems (assuming you're buying a set of four tires), but it is good to know that these differences exist in some rare situations. Take, for example, the following three tires in the size 285/75R16: Dick...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

I bought these tires in November to replace some worn out goodyear rs-a that came on the car when I bought it. I have owned several different uhpas tires, including Dunlop (can't remember which ones), Falken 912, Falken 512,etc. These are by far the best I've driven. They're quieter than I expected. More comfortable by far than the goodyears. Better at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance CS TripleTred All-Season

I live in Mississippi, where you never know what the weather is going to do. These tires have been awesome in dry and wet conditions. My tire rarely loses grip and they handle very well. There is particular stretch on highway near my work that always has standing water if it is raining. In the past, my traction control would come on multiple times when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

Incredible tire. I bought my first Ram 1500 back in 2011 - a 4x4 Crew Cab Hemi powered Big Horn. It came with hokey 20 wheels with chromed wheel covers (What the heck?) and Goodyear tires. Horrible combination for gravel. I had two right side blowouts within two months of purchase (strong possibility that the tires had been damaged in the centers while...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I had my mind made up on buying a set of BF Goodrich all terrain ta/ko's when I came across the wrangler dura trac. I like the aggressive look of the dura trac, a number of the reviews I read people commented that they had the ta/ko's before and liked the dura trac better and the dura trac was priced better. I have only had the new tires about 3000 miles and...  Read More
