Longest-Wearing Z-Rated Performance Tires

Wednesday, August 6, 2014 by Gary Stanley

What can drivers of sports cars and high performance vehicles with low profile, Z-rated Ultra High Performance All-Season tires do if they want to have longer wearing tires? In the past, the best a driver could hope for, in regards to treadwear, was an option that lasted approximately 20,000 miles. This was the case for so long that it has become a common misconception that all low profile tires or tires with a high speed rating have rapid treadwear. On the contrary, there are options available with long treadwear ratings. Three of the best to consider are the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3, Hankook Ventus S1 noble2 and Continental ExtremeContact DWS.

The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 has the best dry grip and quickest steering response among the three and comes with a 45,000-mile treadwear warranty. Both the Continental ExtremeContact DWS and Hankook Ventus S1 noble2 feature 50,000-mile treadwear warranties and perform a little better in light snow conditions compared to the Pilot Sport A/S 3. All three tires are made in a variety of sizes. Now, even drivers of sports cars like the Chevy Corvette and Ford Mustang can find tires with higher treadwear.

Best All-Terrain Tire Choices for 275/55R20 Size

Monday, June 30, 2014 by Gary Stanley

Not too long ago, 20-inch tires were rare, exotic and mostly reserved for high-end European SUVs or show vehicles gracing the cover of automobile magazines. Those that were available were ultra high performance tires, often with little to no all-season traction and wore very quickly. This is not the case today. In fact, 20" tires are an option on many popular trucks, SUVs and domestic and import crossovers. 

Of the 20" sizes that are used, one of the most common is 275/55R20. This size is often used on SUVs like the Cadillac Escalade, Chevy Suburban, Ford Expedition and GMC Yukon. Trucks that commonly use this size include the Chevy Silverado, Dodge Ram 1500, Ford F-150 and can even be used with 20" wheels on newer Toyota Tundras. 

A popular misconception is that one can't find more aggressive On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tires in this size. This performance category is one of the most effective in snow traction and light off-road capability in a tire that can be used year-round. Many of the best all-terrain tires on the market are available in this size, such as the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar and Michelin LTX A/T 2.

If you're looking for a more street friendly ride and longer wear, I'd suggest the Michelin LTX A/T 2. It compares quite favorably to a long-time favorite that you can learn about by reading, "BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO vs. Michelin LTX A/T 2." For more aggressive snow and off-road traction, consider the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar as your top choice.

Goodyear's Top-Rated Wrangler DuraTrac

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by Neal O'Neal

Goodyear has really hit the nail on the head with their On-/Off-Road Commercial Traction Wrangler DuraTrac. It's specifically designed for drivers of multi-purpose full-sized pickups, vans, sport utility and commercial vehicles looking for tires that work both on- and off-road. The Wrangler DuraTrac is developed to be a versatile tire that provides off-road competence in dirt, gravel and mud with on-road composure in dry, wet and wintry conditions.

Wrangler DuraTrac tires feature a rugged chip-resistant tread compound that also guards against chunking and tearing, especially under heavy loads associated with towing. Its symmetric tread design combines large shoulders and highly angled center tread blocks to enhance stability and traction in dry and wet conditions. Self-cleaning, stepped shoulder blocks, zig-zag sipes and Goodyear's TractiveGroove Technology at the base of the circumferential grooves provide thousands of biting edges to improve traction in deep mud and snow. Branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol, it meets industry severe snow service standards and can also be studded. Finally, it features a rim lock that helps prevent wheel slip throughout the life of the tire. 

Take a look at what drivers are saying about their experience with the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac:

"Best tire hands down! 63,000 miles and great in all weather conditions. I tow with my truck 80% of the time. They wear and hook up great! Just getting a new set put on now." - Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2006 Ford F-350 Super Cab

"Love these on my Silverado. Perfect truck tire and the ride is great with very little noise. I've had these in all conditions from dry, wet, mud, sand, snow and ice and they do great." - Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500 4WD

Take a look at our survey results and see why the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac is currently the number one tire in its category.

I have only had these tires on my 2011 Chevy Cruze for 200 miles, but it's been in dry, wet, and snow. They are a bit louder than the standard tires, which is to be expected. They totally transform winter handling in the Cruze. I have to work VERY hard to get the traction control to kick on with these tires on - I simply have grip. I am able to come to a stop in 8 inches of snow on teh road, and start up again with no problem. Handling in the snow is fantastic. I made an effort to put the car sideways in an un-plowed parking lot, at speeds up to about 15mph - couldn't do it. At least initially, I'm VERY happy with these tires. To be clear, I bought wheels and TPMS sensors as well, so I have the factory alloys for sping/summer/fall, and these snows on a set of steelies for winter.

Best Winter Tires for Snow for Crossovers and SUVs

Wednesday, December 11, 2013 by Gary Stanley

Crossovers and SUVs are a very popular vehicle segment and are available from smaller vehicles like the Ford Escape and Nissan Murano, to larger SUVs such as the Chevy Suburban and Cadillac Escalade. There are even high performance models like the Porsche Cayenne and Infiniti FX that have acceleration rivaling that of sports cars.  

Most owners of these vehicles aren't buying them primarily for their off-road capability or 0-60 times, but instead for their desire of a balance of utility, comfort and performance. They also want good all-season traction, including during the winter months. To get the most winter traction, the best option is to install a set of winter / snow tires because they provide much better snow and ice traction compared to their all-season counterparts.

Which winter tires are the best for snow and ice traction for your crossover, light truck or SUV? 

 Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1
Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1
 Pirelli Scorpion Winter
Pirelli Scorpion Winter


I would take a look at the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 and Pirelli Scorpion Winter. Between the two, the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 has better snow and ice traction. Pirelli's Scorpion Winter is a slight step down in snow and ice traction compared to the Blizzak, however it does have better dry road traction and quicker steering response for the days when the roads are dry. These tires aren't just available for SUVs and crossovers, but also make great winter truck tires. 

For more information on the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1, read "Winter Truck Tires."

February 13, 2013

The tires have been used on my 2006 VW Jetta TDI for approximately 40k. I have read all the reviews specific to this Continental Extreme DSW tire. Personally, this tire is the best performance "all season" tire for THIS car. However, having said that, I will tell you that I base my air pressure on the "tire" manufactures suggestioned recommendations -up to 51 psi and NOT the car manufacturer. I run with 43 psi in my tires and do NOT experiense the sidewall flexing some say exists with the tire. I blast through standing puddles and lake type puddles without a problem. I go on and through snow with no problem and go around cars in snow like it is dry pavement. Again, it maybe due to the "car" characteristics i.e. low, solid, feels wide stance etc. The only complaint I would have is the tire tread longevity but really, to obtain the kind of handling in wet, dry and snow this tire will give you, different softer type compound has to be used by the manufacturer. Because I treasure the best all round tire to be on my car, I will choose this tire again because my research does not show at this time another tire exists that is better in the area of wet, dry, cornering and snow like this tire. As a matter of fact, it's time to buy my 16 year old daughter tires on her 2005 Chevy Cobalt and this is what I will order. I'll be right behind her in the replacement of these tires on my VW Diesel that keeps on going strong.

Looking for 10 Ply Tires? They're Now Called Load Range E Tires.

Thursday, June 20, 2013 by Gary Stanley

Heavy duty 3/4-ton and one-ton trucks, such as the Chevy Silverado 2500, Dodge Ram 3500 and Ford F-350 typically require heavy duty tires. A Standard Load tire doesn't have enough load capacity to match these vehicles properly. 

I frequently receive phone calls from truck owners looking for 10 ply tires. However, modern heavy duty tires no longer have ten plys. Many years ago, heavy duty tires were built to carry more load capacity by increasing the number of cotton plys in the carcass of the tire. The more cotton plys the tires had, the more load capacity they could safely carry. As tire technology has progressed, materials stronger than cotton began to be used to create stronger plys used in the tire's construction. 

Therefore, tire manufacturers no longer needed to increase the number of plys in their tires to carry extra loads, but rather increase the strength of the plys. For example, a tire that once needed ten plys, may now only have two or three actual plys. Lighter and stronger tires can now be made using fewer plys in a tire's sidewall. The tire industry also changed the way they label heavy duty truck tires. Even though some may still refer to the old system, it's been updated. When shopping for new tires, you can use this simple chart to refer to the modern term for load capacity ratings on heavy duty tires used on 3/4-ton and one-ton pickups and SUVs. 

  • 2 ply = Standard Load
  • 4 ply = Extra Load
  • 6 ply = Load Range C
  • 8 ply = Load Range D
  • 10 ply = Load Range E

For more information on this topic, take a look at "Load Range E 10 Ply Tires for Heavy Duty Use."

Best Price on Michelin Tires for Toyota, Honda, Nissan and More!

Tuesday, June 4, 2013 by Gary Stanley

When asked about which brand of tires are associated with quality, many think of Michelin. Their reputation is well deserved. For decades, Michelin has been an industry leader in tire technology, making some of the best tires that money can buy. While they make outstanding performance tires, like the Pilot Super Sport, Michelin may be best known for producing some of the smoothest and quietest riding all-season tires on the market.

Not everyone is looking for the best handling and steering response, instead many drivers simply want a tire that's quiet, safe and will last for a long time. For those who are looking for the best price on Michelin tires, check out a couple of the lowest priced options in two popular sizes.

205/65R15

This is a commonly used tire size for a mid-size sedan such as the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata, Nissan Altima, Ford Taurus and Chevy Malibu. The best priced Michelin tire in this size is the Defender. Michelin's Defender is an outstanding Standard Touring All-Season tire with long wear, great traction and a quiet ride. For more information on this tire, read "Michelin Defender Review and Test."

235/70R16 

Many SUVs, trucks and crossover vehicles use this common 16" tire size, including the Ford F-150, Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, Hyundai Santa Fe and various Jeep models. In this size, the lowest priced Michelin tire is the Latitude Tour. This tire, back in early 2012, was one of my top choices for vehicles being driven on the street only. It's still a top contender for those who don't take their vehicles off-road.

Goodyear vs. Michelin Performance Tires

Wednesday, May 15, 2013 by Gary Stanley

There are many rivalries in today's competitive world: Chevy versus Ford, Coke versus Pepsi and Burger King versus McDonald's may come to mind when thinking of two prominent companies within an industry. When it comes to tires, Goodyear and Michelin is one of the most common rivalries.

In some categories, such as the Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season, the Goodyear Assurance CS TripleTred All-Season ranks just a bit higher than Michelin's competing tire, the Latitude Tour. In other categories that include performance tires, Michelin's tires often rank higher. For example, in the Max Performance Summer category, the Michelin Pilot Super Sport is on top. I was so impressed by this particular tire that I bought a set for my own car. My experiences with the tire can be found by reading, "Michelin Pilot Super Sport Tires Installed on My Car." The Pilot Super Sport also picked up a win against Goodyear's Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 last summer during our testing. You can see how well the Michelin tire performed by taking a look at "Testing Max Performance Summer Tires."

So, who really has the better tires? When it comes to performance tires, Michelin is tough to beat right now. However, the tire market is fast paced and new technology is constantly pushing the performance envelope further. When changes are made, you can always count on us to provide you with the best tire options for your vehicle.

Great Chevrolet Silverado Tires

Friday, April 26, 2013 by Steve Huffman

"Like a Rock." Chevy's full-size pickup keeps on trucking. The truck has evolved through the years, but one thing remains the same: dependability. Loyal owners hold on to their truck for many years, even through multiple sets of tires. Is it time to look for new tires for your Silverado?

If you're in the market for a new set, It's hard to go wrong with Michelin. That's why the Michelin LTX M/S2 is my favorite Highway All-Season tire for the Silverado. Besides its excellent ride qualities, including low noise and a comfortable ride, the LTX M/S2 has great all-season traction. The tire is also offered with a dependable 70,000-mile treadlife warranty.

Are you looking for a more aggressive tire? Take a look at the On-/Off-Road All-Terrain Firestone Destination A/T. This tire has been the top-rated option in the category for many years. The Destination A/T looks good while providing great off-road traction. It is tied or at the top of several performance ratings in the category, including:

  • Hydroplaning resistance
  • Wet traction
  • Cornering stability
  • Dry traction
  • Steering response
  • Ride comfort
  • Noise comfort

One of the best value options for your Silverado is the Yokohama Geolandar H/T-S G051. It provides a combination of comfort, handling and year-round traction, even in light snow. With over 28 million miles reported, the tire continues to stay in the the top ten of our Tire Survey Results.

Excellent street-able mud tire, good wear if you keep them rotated and monitor pressure. They cut through deep snow like they are heated. Good self-cleaning characteristics in deep mud, like most other tires, they cake up in deep/wet heavy clay.

Note regarding other reviews: Ignore idiots that can't spell, type in all CAPS and put "C" load range tires on 3/4 & 1 ton pickups. Consider the source.

I've had multiple sets of BFG M/T on vehicles and they've never let me down. If you get stuck with these you either don't know how to drive, or were doing something stupid. If you're experiencing poor wear (and are marginally smart enough to run appropriate pressure and rotate frequently), your junk vehicle probably needs suspension work. If you like Chevy's and Goodyear M/Ts... well, I can't help you, cause you can't fix stupid.

 

Best Tires for the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain

Tuesday, February 12, 2013 by Steve Huffman

General Motor's mid-size SUVs, the Chevy Equinox and its GMC Terrain counterpart, have been one of America's best-selling sport utility vehicles over the past few years. Great looks and efficient power keeps this American family wagon rolling right along. With so many on the road, it's probably time for many owners to start considering new tires. Thankfully, there are many great options for these vehicle.

Currently, the top-rated Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire is the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology. This tire seems to simply do it all. Right away you'll notice how quiet, smooth and comfortable it rides. In addition, it has exceptional all-season traction. As a low rolling resistance tire, you can also expect to save fuel while receiving an enhanced driving pleasure. 

Another great tire to consider is the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season. Similar to the CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology, this tire offers excellent ride qualities and is very nice to drive on. Designed as an eco-friendly option, the tire features an Ecoimpact icon on its sidewall to highlight its environmental compatibility where it reduces rolling resistance and tire weight to increase fuel economy and lower the vehicle's CO2 emissions.

As a good value option, take a look at the Firestone Destination LE 2. It's a relatively new tire that replaced the popular Destination LE. It features a completely revised tread design that not only looks good, but performs great. Combining long wear with a comfortable ride, the Destination LE 2 provides all-season traction, even in light snow.
