Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar I/T G072

I have driven in terrible winter conditions all across Canada (for 20 plus years) and these tires are by far the best I have ever owned (I am talking SUV driving). From heavy wet snow to hard packed snow in -30 windy conditions, to black ice, to ice....these tires have never let me down. They have been so good, I have rarely had to resort to flipping the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

My SUV came with Michelin Primacy MXM4 and my TL Type S has the same tires so I wanted to stay with Michelin. So far I could not be happier with these tires. I can't wait until we get a big snow storm to try them out in deep snow. One thing I did was buy new wheels so I can change the tires myself when the season's change.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

Excellent tire in all regards-road holding, performance on very wet roads, quiet and smoothe. In terms of steering responsiveness the Pirelli Scorpion is a little better, but the Pirelli is not as quiet and is much more expensive. The Prada is the best value for money for an SUV tire and provides shockingly good performance across a broad range of road...  Read More

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

These tires replaced OEM tires for me. Got them from tirerack.com. I've noticed a huge improvement in smoothness and road noise from mile 1 with them. I have driven about 19,000 miles on them so far. In fact, these are a big step up from the OEM Goodyears in every way except one -- treadwear. That has been surprising given their rating. I got 37,000 miles on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Fortera HL Edition

These were the OEM tires on my wife's 2014 Grand Cherokee. It is her daily driver but I we have taken it on several long trips including two to Florida. Unlike some of the others who do not like these tires, so far, I've been impressed. I'm not sure if it is the vehicle or the differences in use, but they seem to be holding up well. The truck always feels...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance CS Fuel Max

These tires are great on my SUV. I took this SUV from the State of West Virginia, to Orlando, Florida. These tires were great my 2010 Murano did not eat the gas. Tires will be put on again. The ride is like riding a Cadallic . Buy these tires, they are great.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Don't get me wrong, I feel totally confident driving in snow and ice conditions with this tire. In a straight line it starts and stops very well with very little slippage. However, cornering grip is less than expected and the Macan tends to drift out during the turn in moderate to heavy snow conditions. I have heard that this is a Macan tendency so I am...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

I waited to drive on these for a few months before writing a review. I have loved these tires since getting them but after driving from Long Island to Burlington, VT in sleet slush and heavy snow, driving around Burlington in 6-12 inches of snow, I can confidently say THESE TIRES ROCK. I never felt slipping or sliding, even while passing in the snow covered...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA2

Had these tires on my 3 series coupe for 3 seasons as my winter tires. Had incredible snow performance. I could drive through snow as well as an SUV on these tires up to 8 inches of snow. Never had more confidence driving in snow than provided by these tires. Would buy these again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I lived 3 years in Maine and 7 now in Wisconsin. Driven everything from compact FWD cars to AWD SUVs. I had never considered buying winter tires because I never had any issues. This winter I decided to give them a try since I am spending a bit of time traveling to the Lake Superior and Michigan UP areas. I have to say that the difference was noticeable...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

I was waiting for the first chance that I actually drove with these during a storm, when roads hadn't been well plowed, to review them. Yesterday, we had a winter storm during the commute home with poorly plowed roads and a couple of inches of accumulation on the highway. These were a champ at keeping me glued to the road. Minimal slippage once you start up...  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 Michelin LTX M/S2

Although I am only allowed to enter a maximum of 100,000 miles, I actually put 129,000 miles on the tires before replacement. Tread wear was in the 3-4/32 range for all four tires.I replaced them because of sidewalk cracks and cracks between the tread blocks. In other words, the tread outlasted the rubber.I rotated the tires every other oil change and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO

Yes, I had over 70,000 mixed paved /unpaved travels. Not one flat. Noisier than OE Goodyear Wranglers & Dunlops, but not objectionable. These tires are the only brand I've had on several SUV's over the years that I didn't have a flat with. The only reason I replaced them (with another set of BFG AT's) was the weather checking. Still had another 10k in them.Wh...  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 Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2

I live in Central NY and we get snow. I just finished our 5th winter seasons with these tires on our Accord and they have been great. I felt compelled to right a review as my wife's car with 17k miles on the all season tires struggled to get up our snowy inclined driveway this winter. The Accord walked right up it with the 5 year old snows. In their 5th year...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar G055

These tires replaced OE Michelins. Tire rep recommended the new Yokohama G055's. Great tire. To date no complaints, slightly more noise then the Michelins but nothing to make one dislike them. Have only seen slight skiff of snow since I have gotten them (approx 2 months). I would recommend these tires for your SUV. Will repost when have more mileage on them....  Read More

Best Tires for Nissan Rogue

The Nissan Rogue has been a very popular vehicle since its debut in 2007 with the 2008 model year. This crossover SUV earned Consumers Digest Best Buy award in 2010, as well as NHTSA's highest side-impact rating (5 stars) the same year, propelling them to the forefront of the XUV market. With so many options out there, what tires should you buy to replace...  Read More

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

Far exceeded expectations, especially in snow. After buying a CPO Q5 3.2 late in the winter and experiencing the oem Dunlops, I needed to decide on some a/s tires, and many of the usual go-to tires were sold out.I knew the Conti-General product line is excellent, based on my experience with a few models, so I took a chance on these RT tires. I hoped that 700...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX

I've only got 2500 miles on this tire, but I'm very impressed with the ride comfort and noise level. These are very quiet and very comfortable. They absorb most small road vibrations and rough surfaces (like small rocks and gravel)they are very quiet. I'd have to say they are the quietest tire you could buy for a light truck or suv. The sidwalls are not very...  Read More
