Bridgestone DriveGuard: A Year in Review

This time a year ago, little was known about the Bridgestone DriveGuard, a tire that's currently our best-selling run-flat option. Over the course of a year, this tire has proven itself in a wide array of weather conditions, has been subject to internal testing and has climbed to the very top of our consumer reviews. While perhaps having a slightly harsher...  Read More

All Hail the King: Bridgestone's Blizzak DM-V2 Impresses on the Ice

With a four-wheel drive truck or SUV, you have a notable advantage accelerating in slippery conditions when compared to most passenger cars. However, even the most capable all-wheel drive vehicles shod with all-season tires will find difficulty compared to two-wheel drive passenger vehicles equipped with dedicated winter / snow tires. If you want the absolute...  Read More

Making the New 2015 Ice Silver Metallic Subaru BRZ Premium Better

I liked my 2013 Honda Civic Si because it was a fun, quick and capable car with a moonroof. While the Civic Si was nice, it simply did not stir my soul the way my old BRZ did. So I said goodbye to my Civic Si and picked up a 2015 ice silver metallic Subaru BRZ Premium. The changes Subaru made to the BRZ in 2015 are outstanding. A shark fin antenna gives the...  Read More

First Impressions of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Bridgestone has historically lead the way in winter condition traction. The more Mother Nature expresses her fury, the happier Bridgestone's winter tires seem to be. In the crossover, sport utility and small truck markets, the Blizzak DM-V1 has been the go-to tire. This fall brings us the all-new Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2.   We took our SUV test vehicles...  Read More

All-New Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 vs Blizzak DM-V1

Bridgestone winter / snow tires are renowned for their outstanding winter traction. For many years, the Blizzak DM-V1 topped the list of best Studless Ice & Snow tires for light trucks, SUVs and crossover vehicles. Its combination of great snow traction, ice traction, wet grip and durability made it the most recommended tire in the category since its...  Read More

Best Tire Recommendations for the Toyota Camry

In the early 1980s, the Camry was introduced into the North American market as Toyota's mid-sized sedan. Many iterations of the car have been produced, including coupes, wagons and convertible versions of the car. While body styles have come and gone, the Toyota Camry has always been known as a reliable vehicle with very broad appeal. It's often one of the...  Read More

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

The old tires were Continental CrossContact LX, they were good for the price I paid. I ran over 40K miles on that set, compared with the OEM Dunlop 5000 that I could manage 20K miles at max. This Bridgestone set is good in general, it did something better than Continental such ride, and wet traction, but it is not that good in cornering in the curve like...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

Got these tires based on reviews from others and comparable price. I really wanted to get the Bridgestone Revo ATs which I previously had on my 2000 Jeep Cherokee and performed exceptionally well on that vehicle. I could not get a decent price on the Revos so I thought I'd give the Geolander ATS a try. It was during the recent snow storm in Michigan over...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

All of my ratings are for driving the Odyssey moderately, not like a sports car. How else do you drive a minivan full of people ? My daily driver is an Acura RSX Type S, the minivan for my wife and I drive occasionally. The important qualities for a minivan are tread wear, ride comfort, wet traction in the rain, and steering response. It was great for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I went from Dunlop Sport Maxx tires to these and could not be more pleased. These tires have better handling, better tread wear, better mileage, and lower noise attributes as compared to the Dunlop tires (and I basically liked the Dunlops). Highly recommended.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Winter 2013/4. We live in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. We've had lots of snow with many icy days and we drive a late model 4x4 Honda Pilot. Tires perform very well, very pleased and have lots of confidence with them. they are a bit noisy compared to the silent summer tires that came with the vehicle. Deep snow is not a problem and so far haven't had to resort to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Just replaced a set of Continential RFT's on my 528. I got about 40K out of the Conti's and was pleased, but the ride was a bit harsh for a bmw. These tires are amazing. It drives exactly what I was hoping for. While only 100 miles on the new set, its like night and day compared to the Continental RFT's. They look great and the ride finally drives like a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/T D687

OEM tire that came with the RAV4, this lasted about 40k through many NY/NJ/PA potholes and a lot of random nails and such on the streets of the city. Commuting 50-70 miles a day plus long family trips, no real worries and it held up okay, though noisy and wore down while on the RAV4 (I partially blame that on the Toyota dealership where it's free service...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

The improvement to ride quality and comfort was noticable immediately. The Defenders are also exceptionally quiet as compared to the OEM Bridgestone Duelers. The CRV rides like a different vihicle now, but in a very good way. Although our experience with driving in snow and ice is limited to only one relatively mild storm so far, the Defenders seem to be, at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX

Compared to the Bridgestone Dueler RF's, I feel like im floating on a cloud. Its almost disturbing. The entire car characteristics changed. significant increase in handling and braking. Haven't tried snow yet. Quiet, and smooth are my thoughts. Looks is decent as well. Thumbs up   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Had these tires for only about 10k, but they are extremely comfortable compared to the Yoko's I had on it. Smooth ride with great grip. I feel like they will last longer than the Pilot Sport 3 or Pilot Sport A/S 3. Michelin pretty much makes some of the best and longer lasting tires on the market. I would recommend this tire to drivers that want a sporty...  Read More

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

2014 640i Gran Coupe Xdrive. Came with Goodyear LS2 Runflats. The ride was so harsh and tires loud that i took them off the car with 3000 miles and i didn't have the reliability issues others have had with no potholes here in Florida. I can't believe BMW sells an 88K luxury car with these tires. I have decided that after going through Performance tires every...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60 RFT

All statements made are COMPARED TO STOCK TIRES, in winter driving conditions. In snow and ice, these tires are drastically different than stock. They allow you to take off a bit quicker, turn a bit faster, and stop a bit shorter. They handle very much like worn stock tires on damp roads, if that makes sense. If you drive in the winter on these, and expect...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The Michelin PSS is an amazing tire, and worth the money. I went with the stock size, 235/50/R18 for the Mustang GT. Compared to my stock BF Goodrich KDW, they made a completely different car. It turned my sloppy muscle car into Porche. However after 7,000 miles, they're already past the wear bars. I do drive it pretty hard in daily driving, and do 2 - 3...  Read More

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

These tires replaced OEM tires for me. Got them from I've noticed a huge improvement in smoothness and road noise from mile 1 with them. I have driven about 19,000 miles on them so far. In fact, these are a big step up from the OEM Goodyears in every way except one -- treadwear. That has been surprising given their rating. I got 37,000 miles on...  Read More
