Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I bought these tires to replace the factory Hankook death-traps that Hyundai had put on the car after I almost died getting to the store in the MILD slush. I immediately noticed an improvement while driving in the same nasty weather on the way home. The one thing I really noticed is how these tires HOWL while driving in the ice and snow.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

We bought a set of Michelin Defenders for my wife's Toyota RAV4 and they were so good I bought a set for my Honda Civic Hybrid. I had a good set of Pirellis which handled well and lasted over 40,000 miles but switching to the Defenders was like night and day. Michelin must have done a lot of research and design to engineer a tire that is so far beyond any...  Read More

Do I Need to Put Run-Flat Winter Tires On My BMW?

Every year I am asked by BMW drivers with factory installed run-flat tires if they need to stay with a run-flat option when it comes to purchasing winter / snow tires.

I put 4 years of daily use on these tires, driving in winter and summer. Then went to storing the car in a garage/back yard for the winters.The tires took a lot of abuse - with the car sitting for 10 months of the year without moving. Sometimes they were under inflated, sometimes they sat in a puddle all winter. And in the summer they always sat out in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

This Galant VR-4 has Full-time AWD & AWS. Check tire pressure weekly. Rotate front-to-back around every 7000 miles.

These tires are lasting longer than the Falken ZE512's and ZE912's. When you...  Read More
