Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A Spec

Bought this tire to replace the narrower O.E. tires on my '09 Challenger R/T. So far the tire is quiet, and has good snow traction in light snow (I have not yet driven the car in heavy snow conditions). Price of the tires was very reasonable.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

When I drove my brand new 2011 Outback home from the dealers lot in Chicago to east Central Indiana, I wondered if I had made the worst purchase decision of my life. I had bought the car with plenty of research, and in town test driving, but I had never had it on the interstate, on top of that day 1 was windy. To say I was directionally challenged would be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

After nearly 80k miles I bought another set of the Pirelli Scorption ATR. Here's why. I drove the North American Continent on these tires from Mexico to Alaska and in all conditions the superiors are many to count. On dry they are stable, and the soft rubber keeps you hooked to the road. Braking is fast. On wet they have a cornering ability which is superior...  Read More

BFGoodrich Introduces g-Force COMP-2 A/S

In addition to the new g-Force Rival S, BFGoodrich is introducing a new Ultra High Performance All-Season tire, the g-Force COMP-2 A/S. Its directional tread pattern combines form and function, effectively evacuating summer rain and winter slush from the tread area, all while looking sportier than the average all-season tread pattern. The tread blocks wrap...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

These tires met and exceeded all reasonable expectations over the Winter past which saw a much higher than normal amount of snow on the roads from hard snow pack to iced intersections, deep new fallen heavy snow (wet & dry) and extreme cold where road salt was entirely ineffective. All-in-all it was a bitter, long and snowy season best forgotten but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (W-Speed Rated)

I bought these tires for my son to put on his 2005 Mustang GT. Past tires have not provided near the mileage I had hoped for but these tires have lasted longer than any tire I have ever bought. To say my son drives this Mustang GT in a most spirited manor would be an understatement. However, these tires have met a most challenging environment and have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

WOW!!! What a tire! I bought mine four years ago from TireRack already installed on steel wheels...what a great move on my part. I've driven them on my Dodge Grand Caravan (with the big motor...3.8 liters) and have lost traction while accelerating ONE TIME, and that was on glare ice. Packed snow and really cold ice are no challenge for this winter performer....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

After searching for a replacement for the stock P-Zeros, I settled on the BFGs due to the higher hydroplaning resistance rating. I have not been disappointed with their performance in wet conditions. Even though they are spec'd as a summer tire, spring and fall are within their driving range. I will not be testing them in the snow unless its a mistake. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Finally got to take this tire out for a spin in some white stuff. 6in. of Cleveland snow and ice for a daily commute. No plowing, no salt, as the storm was unexpected. Tire is a champ. I expected nightmares driving this RWD Challenger through a midwest winter. Not at all worried now. Car acted like there was no snow on ground. Lots of other vehicles slipping...  Read More

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

This tire is simply amazing. This was our first purchase of an Ultra High Performance All Season tire and I believe we made a great choice. We bought the tires as we needed some traction on our 2006 BMW 330i. We did not want to invest in a new four wheel drive or front wheel drive vehicle. Well two snow storms in, these tires have met the challenge. This...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I consider myself more of a reviews reader vs writer, yet recently purchasedCinturato P7 A/S Plus made me to write one. This year record setting arctic blasts with loads of snow, subzero temps and today's short warm up which turned roads into slush rivers presented no challenge whatsoever, these Pirelli's EXCEPTIONALLY grippy making you want to push 'em to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I have these on my Camaro Z28...simply amazing. But, be ready to be annoyed when it snows...because people won't get out of the way to let you pass! I pass Jeeps and SUV's on a regular basis, on slush-filled highways and snowy roads. I put the car into nasty fishtails, and Easily recover. If you slide, the tires BITE hard, and traction actually gets better....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I've made a few modifications and upgrades to my G8. The best upgrade for the money has been these tires. We have some challenging roads in western PA and eastern OH and the Comp2's are up to them all. It's possible to get stupid with these tires, but they'll let you know before they break loose. They're great in wet weather, and I got caught in snow once...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor

Upgraded from stock Michelin Latitude tour on our Ford Escape Hybrid 2009 AWD. We've been getting plenty of snow lately in CT and Latitude would not take me up a hill at times without fishtailing and giving up confidence in the drive. Wrangler SilentArmors seemed like a do it all tire - on/off road and quiet all-season tire. And, best of all, they are...  Read More

moda MD14 Wheels for Your Dodge Challenger

Mustangs are fun, Camaros are hot, but there is something primal about the Dodge Challenger. Recently, I got to work with a Challenger driver who loves his car, but is less than thrilled with his 18" Original Equipment wheels. When we were discussing new choices for his vehicle, it didn't take long to come across the perfect choice - the moda MD14...  Read More

Which Tires Have the Best Winter Traction?

The easy answer to this question is: winter tires! All specialized snow tires have traction on ice and snow that exceeds the best all-season tires. How do you know which winter tire to choose? Typically, the Bridgestone Blizzaks have been class leaders in ice and snow traction. Since their introduction in 1993, we haven't found an all-season tire that can...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy MXV4 S8

I am driving a Challenger R/T so you should know this is a 4200 lb vehicle. I think the tires had a lot of work to do keeping it all together. I drove the tire for about 23,000 miles then hit the Georgia mountains and even the Atlanta Motor Speedway! The tires seemed to do well but nothing spectacular as far as dry pavement cornering. Although they are very...  Read More
