Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Excellent Winter tires. If you live in the upper Midwest and above and own a Truck or SUV, these tires are a best buy if you need to drive in the snow. You can't beat the price and the snow traction. I was able to drive faster than conditions would otherwise allow without even a hint of loss of traction in the deep snow with these tires. For my wife's...  Read More

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

Bought a full set to replace my previous Hankook S1 Noble2's that were worn. The Hankooks when new had great grip and soft ride quality at first, but the tire took a turn for the worse after about 20k miles where it lost any advantage over an inferior tire. The GForces are a completely different tire, I'd start by comparing it to a more rigid summer...  Read More

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

I purchased these tires as a replacement for the Goodyear Eagle RS-As that were on the car previously. I tend to drive gently and sit in traffic most days...I need a quiet, smooth tire with good traction for less than 70MPH situations. This General Tire has filled the purpose so well, at such an affordable price ($110/tire) that I am BEYOND THRILLED! I'm so...  Read More

Are Your All-Season Tires Ready to Handle All Seasons?

There’s no doubt that when it comes to driving in inclement weather during the winter months, nothing beats a set of winter / snow tires. However, if you reside in an area that receives only light snow and an all-season tire is all you need, how that tire performs during the winter months is typically the deciding factor when purchasing your replacement...  Read More

Best Replacement Tires for Mazda CX-7

The CX-7 was introduced in 2007 as Mazda's mid-size SUV. After a five-year run, it was replaced by the CX-5. Being larger than a compact SUV, and yet smaller than the mid-size offerings, it hoped to find the sweet spot in between. With only a mild update in 2010, we most commonly see tire size 235/60R18 outfitted on the Mazda CX-7.  Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 Pirell...  Read More

Firestone's Destination LE 2 is Tried and True

When it comes to buying tires for half-ton pickups and SUVs, we all want the best. We also want to have the best at a great price. Getting customers the best value is a very important part of our job. Few tires better illustrate this concept of value better than the Firestone Destination LE 2.   The LE 2 consistently ranks in the top five in our customer...  Read More

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
