Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

I live in Central Minnesota and have found this to be an outstanding snow tire. I did not need to put my Tahoe in 4wd this winter in snow depths to 4. (We didn't have anything deeper in this year's mild winter.) The tire performs well while braking on slick and snow packed surfaces. For a snow tire it is very quiet on the highway and, overall, it performs...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I use my 2006 Porsche Cayman S as a commuter car so I opted to go with an all-weather tire instead of the standard performance tires. I've been very pleased with the Goodyear Eagle F1 All-Seasons. Very confident traction in rain and wet conditions, there's slightly less grip in dry conditions compared to the performance tires but nothing that would make you...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

I've had the luck of a weekend of changing weather conditions and about 200 miles to test out these new tires. I wasn't initially giving BFG any consideration, but the testing and ratings of Tire Rack and its customers were enough to finally convince me. Sure enough...I am thoroughly impressed! They are amazingly quiet compared to the Michelin Pilot Sport...  Read More

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

I bought my first set of these for my Malone Stage 2.0 tuned Jetta TDI Sportwagen because the price and reviews made it a little more favorable than the Pilot Super Sport. I was very impressed with how much grip these tires have as the TDI is putting out 333tq to the front wheels. This means hook-up is very challenging.I needed new tires for my 911 and I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

This tire quiets down the normally noisy Honda Accord on the road. It provides a smooth, comfortable ride and good safe traction under all conditions. I cannot believe how well this car performs in snow - front wheel drive V-6 helps of course, but driving it in snow compares well with all wheel drive cars I have driven. Tire wear is even across the tire, of...  Read More

Looking for New Tire and Wheels for Your Sixth-Generation 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS?

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

Replaced Michelin Primacy MXM4's. Compared to the MXM4's these are notably quieter and smoother riding. Road bumps are more muted (at same 32psi pressure). Max dry cornering is better (23 vs 21mph in same local round-a-bouts before tire squeal). Transient steering response (dry) not quite as sharp as the MXM4. Wet traction is much better, BUT wet comparo is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

The tire has performed very well so far. I'm most impressed with the light snow and ice performance. What an improvement over the previous version of this tire!! It handles and grips like a borderline summer only tire. The ride quality is a bit harsh when compared to the best in this class, but you always give something to get something in tires like this....  Read More

To Stud or Not to Stud

Yes, I ran a 5K in Lincoln Park (Chicago) on January 1st and it was freezing! My stupidity wasn't running in the cold but in forgetting my running shoe "studs" at my cousin's apartment.

Test Video of the Run-Flat Bridgestone DriveGuard in Sweden

Getting a flat tire is always inconvenient, but it can be especially distressing in situations with poor weather, when a tire fails on a high traffic highway or in an unsafe area.
