Conquer the Snow with Your Jeep Grand Cherokee

About twelve years ago, our SUV-test fleet consisted of 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokees. Since then, we've had sportier SUVs like the Touareg and Cayenne. However, there's a part of me that misses the Grand Cherokee. There is something about sitting in a Jeep that makes you feel like you're unbounded and that you can travel anywhere. And apparently, there are many...  Read More

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

I spent so much time researching tires that I was exhausted. I live in Maryland with all 4 seasons and fun country mountains that I enjoy getting the most of my vehicles. I got the all wheel drive because I drive everyday and can't risk getting stuck in snow, yet I love the handling for fun, fast tight curves, etc... I was at the point that I thought I...  Read More

How Good are Sumitomo Tires?

Sumitomo is a Japanese manufacturer of many things and tires happen to be one of them.  The reason you don't hear about them much is you will not see "Sumitomo" on the side of a race car or notice them sponsoring a team. They also do not run any television commercials. Are they good tires? They offer many tires that provide a great value for the dollar. Sumitom...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

This is our 2nd set of hankook optimo. As far as car tires (idk about truck tires) these are the best bang for your buck. Sad day when your wife passes you in her jetta, middle of winter in your 4x4 suv! Our first set was 65k miles old and still had 60% tread left, when we sold it (passat 1.8t) and bought the current tdi. We bought new shoes for the tdi...  Read More

What is Rim Offset and Backspacing? How Do They Affect Fitment?

Have you been told your Honda needs a high offset wheel or that your new Jeep wheels must have the right backspacing? Many drivers are familiar with rim diameter, bolt pattern and centerbore, but not offset and backspacing. Offset is the distance between the mounting pad and rim's midpoint. The diagram to the right shows a wheel with a positive offset. Every...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

You will be amazed by how quiet and steady your Kumho tires will be on your car. I got my first set of Kumho's as a replacement for Continental ContiTacs on my BMW325xi all wheel drive wagon in 2004. The Kumho's gripped better, and they were quieter. I have since used Kumho's as replacement tires on our Mitsubishi, Volkswagen GTI, BMW M3, and our Hyundai...  Read More

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

Purchased for all season wet use. Very easy break-in with multiple rebalances as tires settled in. Tires hold balancing quite well, however.Biggest complaint is the poor ride quality- tried various tire pressures from 35PSI to 43PSI (OE spec is 36psi to 49PSI). Went with 35 series instead of 30's but can only surmise it helped any. Wanted the higher load...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

These replaced well worn Yokohama s.drives in the same size, mounted on Mazda CX7 OEM wheels 18x7.5. The s.drives had 35K hard heat soaked miles on them, were zigzag cupped on the insides (bad rear toe) and very thin inside compared to outside, perhaps from the MZ3's stock negative camber. Noise and dry grip are dramatically improved, as is the ride comfort,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

The Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus tire is much better than the Potenza RE92A OE tire, and worthy of an early switch. The difference is night and day. I have a 2013 Subaru Legacy that I really like, but over the course of 32,000 miles I grew accustomed to feeling a rigid almost jolting ride as well as all the road imperfections Texas has to offer. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I use my car to visit customers about 2 days a week, during those highway trips, I put on about 200 miles total. The remainder, I have a short commute to the office or work from home. This is an AWD car with a 60/40 rear/front torque split so I kept a careful eye on rear tire wear. Tires were rotated every 10k. After the initial break-in and first 10k, I...  Read More
