Is the Bridgestone DriveGuard Right For You?

Compared to conventional run-flats, the Bridgestone DriveGuard rides better, while offering better value and wear. As a tire that can also be installed on some vehicles that didn't come equipped with run-flats as Original Equipment, many could be skeptical to the idea of switching¬†to run-flats on their vehicle. Isn't a flat when most of us notice our tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I bought these tires for my 2005 Ford Crown Victoria after several winters of getting stuck on a level surface with one inch on snow on it. This car is probably the worst possible vehicle to drive in winter conditions, so I thought it would be a good test vehicle for these tires. So far here in cleveland we have had rain, snow, ice, and slush. These tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

This is my first set of snow tires. I've always used all season tires, but never again. I put them on in November. I was a little worried that they would be rough or loud on dry pavement, but they are nice and quiet. Of course handling isn't as good as normal summer tires on dry pavement, but the compromise is acceptable. Snow is where these tires are worth...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

The tires are truly a very good tire. That was one of the biggest reasons that I got the Blizzak WS70 and the price was extremely affordable. The reviews compared to other tires were not even close to these brand for the winter. And other people and reviews I read I really didn't hear anything bad about them except for that I would be extremely happy with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Phenomenal. Finally had some snow, ice, and several days of subfreezing temps. Have X-Ice 3's on the other car and have used Firestone Winterforce on this. I'd compare as follows--vs. the Winterforce: much better ice and slush grip; slightly better unpacked snow grip; better packed snow grip; much, much lower road noise; slightly softer feeling ride; the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I put these tires on both my Colorado and my wife's Patriot. The performance simply cannot be beat. I run these four months out of the year in Ohio, then I switch back to my Revo 2s. The price of the combo comes out to about $100 extra per year over having one set of tires, but that is pocket change compared to an accident.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

I got these to replace the Toyo A20 OEM tires. Its very early on but first impressions are very good. we have had several snow storms and these tires are excellent in the snow and ice on the roads my Highlander feels very stable driving with them. I have not seen a hit in gas mileage with them compared to the OEM tires. They are just as quiet as the OEM...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Comparing this tire to my previous set of Michelin Primacy MXV4, I get better mpg, dry & wet traction. As good: snow traction & quiet ride. Treadwear appears to be twice as good and all for alot less cost. Ride comfort with the Serenity Plus is slightly better than the Primacy. IF I hadonly these two tires to choose between, the Bridgestone would be my pick....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

These tires replaced Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position that replaced the OEM Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 on my Acura TSX. The Michelins had poor dry traction as the tires aged and were just ok in snow. The Bridgestones were excellent in all aspects except the winter season. They were terrible on ice or light/heavy snow, to the point that I needed to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is a high quality snow tire that makes winters in a rear wheel drive car more comfortable. I haven't put enough miles on the tires to be a great judge of durability, and I've only driven through one significant snow event and the slushy aftermath that followed for the next few days. Although grip is improved, the traction control still activates when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Just installed the Bridgestone WS80 prior to the big Super Bowl snowstorm of 2015. I had been told by tire guys that if I had a good set of all season radials I'm just as well off as having snow tire. Too bad I believed that for too long. After my wife had a very close call on icy roads with my 4 children in the van with her, I thought a set of winter tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Compared to my previous Michelin Pilots these get 5% better mileage, wear better and are very quiet. They handle fine, but I don't drive aggressively so can't say they'll be appreciated by boy racer types. They're big drawback is snow performance, whether it's just an inch after the road has just been plowed or in deeper stuff. These are only a step above...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This was my first winter tire purchase and I have zero regrets about buying it. I think one of the most important benefits of this tire was the confidence of its performance driving in snow or rainy conditions. It's handling in adverse weather is incredible compared to my previous all-season tires.The tire is a bit noisy as can be expected by the tread...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

I moved away from the OEM Michelin tires (Mud/Snow) that are a very good tire and if you do off road driving a little, maybe the best choice for that. However, I have had the opportunity to test these Bridgestone tires in snow, ice, rain and more in the first 300 miles and they keep my Ridgeline pickup in excellent control of the conditions. Where these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

These replaced OEM Bridgestone RE050 rft's which were worn out in back after 20K miles. I heavily researched options and we wanted to stay with rft for the security if we had a flat since there's no spare. While we don't intend any winter driving, we wanted strong dry and wet performance, along with a smoother ride and longer treat life. The difference...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

These Driveguard tires are great! I had the OEM Bridgestone Potenza runflats on my 2009 3-series with sports package. The Potenzas were loud, rough riding, and falling apart after 28,000 miles. After reading the reviews I ordered the Driveguards as a replacement and they have been nothing short of amazing. They are quieter, ride smoother, and don't give up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

After 10k miles I can attest that these have been very good tires thus far. I tend not to take this vehicle out in heavy snow as I have a 4x4 pick-up for that so I can't give relevant feedback for heavy snow traction, but in all other areas this tire has been great. Very smooth and quiet on the highway; gas mileage has remained consistent for the life of the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2

These are great tires, great traction, great cornering and responsiveness whether on the road or the track. They make the rather stiff ride of a BMW M Roadster more comfortable, are very quiet on the highway and happily cruise along at 100+ mph with excellent road feel. I occasionally take my car to the big track at Willow Springs or the Mazda Raceway (aka...  Read More
