Initial Review, 15,000 Miles on Tires
February 11, 2014

I had never bought Bridgestone tires before, but since my tire size is rare, my choices were limited. I had (new) OEM Goodyears on this car most recently, and I never really had the confidence to drive them hard. I felt I had to be unusually cautious. Since putting the Bridgestones on, I am able to drive my car the way it should be driven. After 15K miles, these tires are still sticky and reliable. Their performance has been exceptional. I put them to the test recently in a 2,000 round trip from San Jose to Phoenix and was never disappointed. Driving the serpentine highway through the hills from San Jose to Santa Cruz late at night in the fog and rain gets my heart rate up and is almost too much fun. Lately I have noted very slight hydroplaning in deeper standing water, but they recover almost immediately. I would not hesitate to recommend them and will probably buy them again.

My Corvette is making just under 500hp at the wheels and I am very impressed with traction these tires have. My last set of tires were getting old (hard) and would brake loose in 3rd and 4th gear. These tires have yet to brake loose in second gear let alone any gear above that. While driving on a wet surface this is not the case though. These tires have just a tad bit noise than my last set, but overall I am very pleased with the traction and the cost.

I liked this tire for the first 15-20K miles. It seemed to do everything pretty well. Rode quiet on road even with the aggressive tread pattern. Had very good traction on all surfaces. I'm OK with under half the tread left at 27K miles but the characteristics of the tire have changed dramatically. It still has good dry and wet road traction but the tread is producing a rumbling vibration at highway speed that seriously vibrates the interior of the vehicle. What hard-packed snow traction the tire had is gone. My truck had a hard time climbing a hill into our campground this winter. Even after I switched to 4WD, It spun significantly before it got rolling again. My sister's Dodge minivan with Bridgestone all-seasons and front wheel drive conquered the hill with far less drama. Maybe I should've got the LT versions instead of the P but in summary.. tire was superior in most regards when new but at 20-25K miles, it lost most of its allure. I will look for something else when I buy later this year.

I was worried about spending money on wheels and tires for a car that has good wheels, and tires with lots of tread. I was also worried I would not get bang for my buck.I needn't have worried.TIRE RACK MADE MY BUYING EXPERIENCE FLAWLESS!!!!I've had over 60 cars with all kinds of tires and listed my driving style as easy going but,I was working these hard to see what they will do and am impressed.8 inches of loss snow,hard packed snow,and ice,no problem.braking is what I was most concerned with and braking is excellent.There is more noise,not much,steering has a different feel,it is not a bad feel,just different.I ordered these at7:30 am central Monday delivered at 1:30 pm Tuesday!!!!Shipping,packing,speed,quality,did I mention TIRE RACK is the BEST, the only thing that could have been better is if it where free.

78,000 miles on these tires and there is still 5/32nd tread left. The snow traction is fair but these tires excel with great dry and wet traction. The treadwear and road noise is the best of any tire we've bought. Thanks michelin for making a great tire.

It was time to replace my stock Bridgestone Dueler at's with 80k miles on them on my Z71 4x4. Went with the Destination LE 2 based on the awesome tire rack reviews. Should have stuck with Bridgestones. These tires are poor in the snow. If you live in Naples Fl these would be a great tire.

I’m getting ready to order my second set of these. They’re much better than the Goodyear OEM tires. They’re quieter, they track rock solid (on the highway, the Goodyears required continual steering input to keep on track), very good wet/dry traction, and impressive tread wear (I’ll have over 33,000 miles on them when they’re replaced).

These are the OEM tire that my car came with.

The winter traction is horrible! These tires are borderline dangerous in the winter. I am going today to get a different set of tires after 62k miles and 2 winters.

Tread life is awesome, the tires are wearing evenly and are a true 65k mile tire as advertised.

If you live in a southern state without snow then I would own these tires, but if you have to drive through one snow per year I would not recommend them.

Put my first 1,000 miles on this tires and so far I've been very pleased. Had a hour and half highway trip on them and they road smoothly with little to no road notice changing
from concrete to asphalt surfaces. We live in the Mid west and have had wet pavement to snowfall every week since buying the Destination LE 2. These tires have performed as advertised...they grip better than expected. Felling much safer on these than the Yokahomas's .

I've owned five Suburbans since 1994. By far, this has been the best all-round tire I've ever had on a Suburban. They have great wet and snow-covered road traction, they are quiet and they have outstanding stopping capabilities. This is my first Firestone tire that i have ever purchased. I will give them a second look for my other vehicles. Thank you FIrestone, you hit it out of the park
with this one.

the stock 215/55/17 goodyear fuel max that came with the car was way too soft and disconnected. So I decided to upsize to 225/50/17. After looking around (between the MXM4, Conti purecontact I decided to go with the P7s. didn't go with the MXM4 because of the cost and I had bad experience with Conti tires in the past.

I am very impressed with the these compared to the stock goodyear. These are stiffer with better road feel, braking distance is shorter (partly could be the wider size) and quieter. In the few off/on ramps that I have taken, they handle way better than the goodyear.

Yes I did lose about 3 miles per charge (in terms of range) but I think that's mainly due to the wider size (these are LRR tires as well) but that doesn't bother me at all for the better ride/handling/braking

I bought these last winter and they were cheapper last year so they most of sold alot of them but anyway these are some good cheap snow tires and they worked on my van so well i just bought 2 more for my wifes car.I think these tires can not be beat for the price ride,a little noise as these snow tires hum a little but remember bad in the day the good old town & counrt snow tires would be loud but you know they were saying give me some snow,these arent that loud but the best snows i have seen as you can no longer get the town sound tires,now if you get out to west MD around deep creak lake theres a place that recaps tires with saw dust,i got a set 1 year and it was the best ice tire i ever had,but if you spund the wheels ( i was 18 then)you could see chunks of your tire flying in the air so they only lasted that winter but they were the best ,anyway you can beat these for the price,I will by them again as long as they keep making them!

Excellent tire!!! Have been through several 6-10" snow storms in the first 1000 miles and tires have performed better that expected. Have used Blizzaks for many years and tried these based on price and feel that they are at least equal to Blizzak performance. Highly recommended for heavy snow areas. No experience with highway travel yet, but since they utilize Bridgestone technology I don't anticipate any concerns.

Fantastic tire. Extremely smooth and quite with excellent grip and amazing tread life. I have had these tires for over 10,000 miles and still over 70% tread depth remaining. This tire has all the characteristics of a solid performance tire while also providing a smooth ride and excellent, long, tread life. I wouldn't be surprised if I got 30,000 miles on this tire, which is unheard of for a performance tire with this level of traction.

I bought these before going through a major snow storm in New York and they handled great! Went everywhere in 2wd. The next winter had about 6-7" "which was less in NY storm" of snow and handled great but had to use 4wd, due to the fast tread wear. Did not like the tread wear and cupping on steer tires. Rotate every 5k miles and still got cupping. My alignment is SPOT, SPOT on with in .01 degrees on and all new steering parts before install. I myself am a mechanic for a living and made sure that was all done. Had to adjust rear tire and front tire pressure every rotation to get even wear and try to mitigate the wear issues.

These tires did okay in the mountains and were okay in the mud/wet dirt roads. I do get A LOT A LOT of spinning on wet roads and turns after/during rain conditions. Did not like the longevity of the tires, seemed to be too short for what people were saying they got. Would not recommend these tires for someone looking for a long lasting tire on a truck.

Hope this review helps.

As I stated, I have more than 34K miles on these tires which are just on the rear of my Colorado 2 wheel drive. Tread life has been very good, even on just rain covered roads, but these tires have got me through two very bad snow storms here in Saint Louis. The last one was just about two weeks ago and I was going back home during the early morning hours before the plows had a chance to hit the pavement. These tires just dug into the snow and got me up two of the steepest hills we have in our area that are Interstate roads. Some cars were just stuck half way up the hills, where I was just going right along. I was worried at first, before the storm had hit that I had already worn thru the compound that gives me the traction in the snow, but these tires just kept me going. Firestone has my back with these tires, I just hope they don't discontinue making them and at the price that The Tire Rack sells them for, it is a win, win situation for me. I plan on buying another pair to put on the rear of my truck and move the ones that are on the rear to the front, that is how much tread I have left on these tires!

 

Yokohama's PARADA Spec-X is a Proven All-Season Performer for Your SUV

Thursday, January 23, 2014 by Doc Horvath

Currently sitting at the top of our survey results in the Street/Sport Truck All-Season category, the Yokohama PARADA Spec-X continues to impress SUV and light truck owners with superior wet and dry traction, as well as a quiet ride. Available in sizes ranging from 17" up to 28" wheel diameters, the PARADA Spec-X has built a strong reputation over its life by using a directional tread pattern and wide center grooves to resist hydroplaning and enhance wet traction. Recently, Yokohama added more sizes to provide owners of "modern" muscle cars with confidence in year-round conditions, even light snow. Now, vehicles like the Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro can trade their fast wearing Original Equipment tires for extended life and improved comfort.

The range of available sizes means the PARADA Spec-X can be used on a variety of vehicles including:

  • Late-model GM SUVs
  • Cadillac Escalades
  • Chevrolet Suburbans 
  • Acura MDX and RDX
  • Honda Ridgeline
  • Mazda CX-9

For more insight on this tire, read our customer reviews to see what drivers are saying about their experience with the Yokohama PARADA Spec-X,
