Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I bought the Firestone Destination A/Ts based on their very high ratings in the Survey section at Tire Rack. In the past, I always thought Michelin made the best tires, so I was somewhat skeptical of switching to the Firestone brand. After 11 months and 19,000 miles of driving, it's clear that the Firestone Destination A/T is the best tire that has ever been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I have been stunned by this tire. Usually, you have to give up something to gain in another area. Once you get to a tire that performs at this level in the dry, it really stinks in the wet and wears out very quickly. SOMEHOW, Michellin has given us a tire that has incredible turn in, incredible dry grip, yet wears beyond belief (for a tire of this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

Had Goodyear's Wrangler's on the truck before, terrible tread life. These Michelins are the best tires I've ever owned. After 35000 miles, they still ride and handle like new. Wet traction is a minus here, i tend to spin the rear tires when not loaded. Snow traction is incredible, especially after the winter of 2014. As long as I have at least a half a tank...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

I purchased these tires on October 4, for a 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan at the store in South Bend,IN. We have had very good experience with Firestone tires on our family farm, although I knew that Firestone had issues in the past with passenger car tires. These tires are much quieter than the Hankook tires they replaced; the handling leaving Tire Rack in South...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

At 40k, I replaced the stock Yokohama Geolanders with Assurance Triple Tred All-Seasons. The Yokohama's still had 7/32, but at about 30k, I started having hydroplaning and noise issues. Also, last winter, the snow/ice traction had noticeably decreased. With a baby on the way, and winter approaching, I wanted a safe tire for my family. Coupled with the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

WOW!!! What a tire! I bought mine four years ago from TireRack already installed on steel wheels...what a great move on my part. I've driven them on my Dodge Grand Caravan (with the big motor...3.8 liters) and have lost traction while accelerating ONE TIME, and that was on glare ice. Packed snow and really cold ice are no challenge for this winter performer....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I have had these tires on my 2004 Dodge SRT-4 for about 3 winters now. They are absolutely stunning, lower sidewall resistance so not a cornering monster but a softer ride. This tread takes me everywhere, the longevity is unknown because I have them on while I go on 3,000+ mile road trips when the roads are dry but need them for snowy passes in the high...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I'm 7500 miles into this set of tires. In addition to daily driving, I use the Evo to get to and from mountain trailheads in a timely manner. I do not track this car, but race karts frequently. I swapped from 255/40/17 RE-11 on 17x9 wheels to 235/45/17 DW's on 17x8's to reduce operating costs.I've been pleasantly surprised by the performance these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2

These tires way exceed my expectations on snow and ice. The Dodge is only FWD and it tracks like a Jeep Wrangler now. Very very impressive snow and ice traction. I jabbed the brakes and floored it in a parking lot to test them and was absolutely awestruck. Can't comment on the life expectancy as they are new.   Read More

moda MD14 Wheels for Your Dodge Challenger

Mustangs are fun, Camaros are hot, but there is something primal about the Dodge Challenger. Recently, I got to work with a Challenger driver who loves his car, but is less than thrilled with his 18" Original Equipment wheels. When we were discussing new choices for his vehicle, it didn't take long to come across the perfect choice - the moda MD14...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

Great tire; another home run from Michelin. Am also running MVX4s on two other vehicles: the wife's Toyota Avalon and my son's Dodge Charger SXT. over 150,000 miles on all three sets of tires without so much as a hiccup !! Although the mileage on my set has surpassed all expectations, including 60K+ of trouble-free wear, in the interest of maintaining the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy MXV4 S8

I am driving a Challenger R/T so you should know this is a 4200 lb vehicle. I think the tires had a lot of work to do keeping it all together. I drove the tire for about 23,000 miles then hit the Georgia mountains and even the Atlanta Motor Speedway! The tires seemed to do well but nothing spectacular as far as dry pavement cornering. Although they are very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

In the context of going from studded Nokian Hakapeliita 5 dedicated winter snow tires (the BEST), changing to new Michelin Premier A/S tires has been remarkable...the tires are quiet, both relative to coming from studded tires which were noisy, but even considering how quiet they are on roads scored by studded tires. In terms of ride comfort, the Forester...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

I drive a 2013 Dodge Avenger se with the 3.6 engine. These are the oem tires that came with the car. The dry traction grip is ok when accelerating from a dead stop but I have had better response with bridgestone and falcon tires. These tire are not that bad and have done better in wet traction with some of these flash flood rains we have in Florida. I am not...  Read More

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

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...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Okay, bought thise with a set of Enkie PF-01's in 15 so my wife would be happier with the ride. At first I lost about 7 mpg gas mileage. They take quite a while to break in but mileage has slowly increased back to around 42 on the highway (I got used to the 47mpg with the Continental DWS's at 70mph- calculated, not the computor). The Enkie's are a half inch...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Previously ran Cooper CS4 Touring on my Mazda, these are almost as comfortable and quiet as those tires but with a noticeable upgrade in the handling department, both dry and wet. Have not been able to max out the car/tire combos capabilities, but feel confident to push them hard in daily driving.Compared to OEM Michelin MXM4, sidewall is softer on the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID S33B

I got these tires already on my 2014 Dodge Caravan , and they are probably one of they worst sets of tires I have ever had . I was really surprised because , Yokohama's are usually great tires . I have zero traction in the snow , or in the rain . Even sometimes when i am pulling out into traffic the tires spin on dry ground . Then I have people laughing at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Just went through one of the worst winter storms in Minnesota/Wisconsin. Had to drive to the airport in Minnesota. These tires handled the ice on the freeway very well. The Off ramps were not plowed on the way home. The first off ramp to not be plowed was getting off of I-694 to HWY 36 snow was at least a foot deep. Yes I put my trusty Dodge Durango in 4H...  Read More

Hard-to-Find Tires for the Toyota Highlander, GMC Acadia, Dodge Journey and MINI Cooper

Many new SUVs and CUVs are coming equipped with hard-to-find tire sizes. Therefore, when the time comes for replacements, there are often few options to choose from. In almost every case, we work hard to stock these unique Original Equipment sizes (like the 19" and 20" options for the GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave). If you're looking for alternative tires,...  Read More
