Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

These are the OEM tires that came on my 2009 Chevrolet Silverado when I purchased it new in early 2009. I maintained the tire pressure regularly and rotated them every other oil change (around 6,000 miles). I cannot complain about the quality of the tires. I have had the truck three and a half years and I am just now looking into buying tires. I regularly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I purchased these tires when upgrading my 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer to the 20 rims. I have used Yokohama in the past and am consistently happy with the price/performance factor. These tires are wearing wonderfully, I do rotate them every 10,000 though. They are quiet, and not harsh riding, the sidewall has some give.It's an SUV- so as you could expect, I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

I replaced OEM Firestone (40K miles) with the new Grabber HTS. The Chevrolet dealer was reluctant to even quote these tires and pushed Bridgestone. But based on reviews here and on CR, I insisted on the tire. I am happy to report that the Grabbers are outstanding! Very soft feel, quiet and great handling. General makes a great product and backs their tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I replaced the original Goodyears (23,000 mi) with these, even though they were my second choice. The new Pilot Sports do not come in my size. These tires are a huge improvement over the stock Goodyears. Much, much quieter, better ride and very responsive handling. Not enough experience yet in the wet and they are still in the break in stage but so far -wow!...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

When I upgraded my 2012 Chevrolet Equinox for the 17 Goodyear tires and factory rims I want to go big so I went to a 22 set. I researched online every tire that is manufactured in the size P255/35/22. My first set of tires were Toyo Proxes TR-4. These tires were noisy and rough riding. I hated these tires so much I swapped them out only after 100 miles for a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Michelin, being a smart marketer, does not make this tire in the appropriate sizes so as not to compete with their run-flat tires that they have sold to Chevrolet for their Corvette.. I was forced to go 1-size smaller just on the rear tires, to be able to make the switch to using Pilot Super Sport.. But both performance and handling are far, far, superior to...  Read More

Why is the Same Tire Listed Twice?

While researching tires on your website, you may see the same tire listed twice. For example, in the 225/65-17 size, you'll see a $173* Michelin Latitude Tour and a $182* Michelin Latitude Tour. Are these two tires really identical? Or are there differences? One of the options (the Latitude Tour currently listed at $173) is an Original Equipment tire used on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I live in Nebraska and my 2wd drive Chevrolet Colorado has very poor snow and ice traction with all season tires and I was considering trading it for a 4wd. I gave the Bridgestone Blizzak's a try this winter and I have been amazed how good the traction is with them. I have not even needed to use sandbags for added traction. The stopping grip and the rear...  Read More
