Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The Pilots are vast improvement over the factory Potenza run-flats. I made the switch to conventional tires with some trepidation. I have a compressor and plug kit in the trunk, which hopefully will get me home in a pinch. These tires have transformed the car to much more pleasant ride. Traction is phenomenal, directional stability is improved and general...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I am on my second set of these tires on my Land Cruiser and they are great tires. I put 70,000 on the first set but they were not called Defenders just LTX M/S. Tread life is amazing and they are tough tires and can't be destroyed. They are great in most conditions snow, sand and rain and if you get a nail in them they can be repaired because they are thick...  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 Michelin LTX M/S

This set is right at 70k miles and I bought them Feb of 2016 and its at the end of Aug 2016 and Im buying a new set. I buy Michelin from the brand name reputation and these tires have a 70,000 mile lifespan. My truck when new came with a set of Generals that did not last...  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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

75% of my driving is highway (70+ mph), 20% city and 5% playing in the dirt and mud.I needed to get a new set before the most recent northeast Ohio winter and just like you, I did my research. I wanted a more aggressive looking tire on my truck that could handle handle winter and not kill my mpg. I wanted to give my review after I put 10,000 miles on them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I installed these on my Jeep Wrangler Sport (model yr 2004) after the Mickey Thompson Bajas wore out in under 10k!. The Scorpions lasted me approximately 25,000 miles until I replaced them for a new set. I used to deflate down to 10-13 psi and do hardcore dune bashing in the desert, and re-inflated back up to 35 psi once all the fun was done with. They...  Read More

Are My Tires Too Old?

How old is too old is an oft-asked question. While the industry guidelines say six years in use or 10 years from build, your experience can vary. The life span you see from any tire can vary greatly depending on how it is used. For example, counter to common belief, an infrequently used tire actually lives a harder life than one that is exercised on a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

There is not enough to say about these tires, this is the tire you should buy. I drive on the highway 5days a week for work and try to spend as much time as I can outdoors on the weekends. Tires are quiet on the highway, but with the quality of a Ford Escape, you're still going to hear road noise. My use on the weekends would involve fishing, hunting,...  Read More

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

I bought these tires and I LOVE them so far. From day 1 the ride in my Benz is super smooth and quiet again after getting rid of the OEM Bridgestone tires. I drive 'somewhat' fast on the interstates and not quite as fast in city driving. So far at 1,500 miles they are super smooth and quiet. I was trucking last weekend on I-65 Southbound at around 98ish and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

These tires are great!! They clawed their way up a very steep snow and ice covered hill starting half way up it and the truck was still in 2wd. Road noise is VERY quiet and tread wear is well above average. My only gripe is traction when accelerating in wet weather however, braking isn't a problem. I will definitely be buying these tires again!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Just like the Tirerack reviews say. These tires perform just as good as the Goodyear comfortred in dry, but way much better in rain. My truck is only 116 hp, but would fishtail in wet with the goodyear. When it rain I had to slowly accelerate with these no problem at all. I have push this tire on ramp rate 35mph at 65mph and wow. These tires stick! Road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Transforce AT

I have put 41,000 miles on these tires an who knows how many miles the previous owner put on them. I drive my truck pretty hard and these tires have held up amazingly. 100% will buy these tires again. Every Chevy review on here has been positive while every Ram review has been horrible. It's not the tire that's bad its your Ram truck!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Have these tires on a dedicated 17inch steel wheel. Did not notice any difference in ride from the OEM 20 inch on Goodyears. Noise is a little louder than a all season tire due to having them studded at 0-30mph. Anything over 30mph and you cant hear the studs anymore. Tires do exceptionally well in deep snow. Pulled out a mini cooper in 20inches of fresh...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

I purchased these snow tires while living in Lake City, Florida. Needless to say, I got some really funny remarks when ordering/having them mounted. However, they were bought because we were moving to Upper Michigan (Marquette area), where we get TONS of snow. Most people thought we were crazy for buying them when we did (around the middle of March), because...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

These have been excellent in very deep snow off road. Off road in mud dirt sand rocks etc. are amazing for a streetable tire. Iced over roads not so great, they are not as good as a dedicated winter tire on glazed over roads but they do tend to have problems gripping the polished ice. I have never had a problem with noise but you do know that they are there...  Read More
