Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I can't contest for the mileage yet as I just purchased these less than 1000 miles ago. As for every other aspect of this tire,,,,,, WOW, I've owned winter specific tires in the past (Bridgestone's WS60, Firestone's and Dunlop's)The Bridgestone's were hands down a superior tire over the Dunlop's and Firestone's. But these Pirelli's have changed my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

Best snow you will ever buy, period! Everyone who complains about how bad their car is in the winter, I tell them about this tire. Every single person has come back amazed. They can't believe it's the same car. People who think their all season tires are good, haven't tried a true snow tire. Not even close, these tires will walk circles around them. My dad...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce LT

I live in Syracuse NY (just like Buffalo) Snow town USA. I purchased a set of 4 studded snow tires, after driving around on all season and I have to tell you the change was outstanding, no more white knuckle driving. These tires recently went through a snow storm, we are talking 6 to 8 drifts with a standard 3 to 4 mealy snow, the complete way to work. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I bought a set of four of these tires for my 2014 Cruze. These tires have been the best investment I have made. Recently we encountered a horrible ice storm in Pittsbugh and I had to drive to work. These tires saved my life. I was able to drive on black ice in my car and maintain control around bends, down hills, and up hills. To give you an idea how bad...  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 BFGoodrich Commercial T/A Traction

These BF Goodrich tires are 100x better than the Firestone Transforce HT's that where on the truck, No more slipping and Sliding around on wet/snow covered roads anymore.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is my first set of winter tires on this car, and my first set of studless winter tires. On previous vehicles, I used studdable winter tires such as the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 1 and the Firestone Winterforce. While those performed fine in winter conditions, they were definitely noisy and rough riding. Not so with the Blizzaks. The ride is smooth and while...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS (W-Speed Rated)

For the Marauder, these are far superior to the BF Goodrich in every way I care about. Very quiet highway tires with nice smooth controlled ride. I don't drive this car in snow/ice so I can't comment on winter use. I hope these are still available when I need them again. I was so happy when I first got these I promised myself I would write a review if still...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

I drive in the snowbelt of NE Ohio. 4 wheel drive is a must if you want to get to work in the morning before the snowplows have had time to get to the roads. I have been driving in the snow for 35 years. This is the best tire I have ever purchased. There is some road noise but I will except that for how well they perform on the Ice and snow. I will be buying...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

Living in lake Tahoe basin for 7 years gave me a chance to try most of the winter tires on the market-General,Firestone,Bridgestone,Goodyear,Continental and many many others.I'm a big fan of classic winter tires with studs,gives you the great feel of being safe in any kind of winter conditions.We bought MB ML350 this year and due to the big rim size (20 or...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

will check back after more miles put on these tires-replaced Michelin Latitudes with this tire--Latitudes were good tires and wore well. The Firestone's track well, are quiet, and brake well in wet and dry conditions. If they wear as well as the Michelin's did, I'll be a happy guy. So far so good--nice quiet, stable ride.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Very impressive. I've had these, Firestone Winterforce, and Blizzak WS-80's. The overriding plus is great slush and ice traction, coupled with a quiet highway road. It's hard to rate absolute performance vs. the WS-80's, since these are on the FWD Focus while my WS-80's are on the beastly (in the snow) AWD Subaru. But in braking and cornering, and general...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I like these tires. I bought these tires several months ago, but didn't get any real driving in because I was having some work done on the car. I'm only writing this review because I'm highly impressed with these tires. Today is 4th of January and it is a slightly rainy day in Western, PA. I drive 60 miles one way to work I do not normally drive this car in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Moved from Firestone Firehawk {OEM] to this tire. The ride and control are awesome! Like riding a rail. Yes they were expensive, but the control is incredible. Control on wet surfaces are the same as on dry. Bought this tire due to the need for extensive winter driving in the Northeast and I have not been disappointed. Just a wonderful experience.Control...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Best tires I've owned. Went from Firestone wide ovals to these and like night and day. Car had the fe2 sport suspension and really made it a pleasure to drive. Most noticeable in the rain, so much better against hydroplaning.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

The Destination AT has great on road manners in both dry and wet, is very quiet so far and plows through snow with ease. Off road I use my modified FZJ80 Land Cruiser mostly on sandy beaches where this tire seems about perfect. The right combination between closed and open tread to make it float on top of the loose sand, yet open enough to dig in a bit when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

These tires are awesome! I'm driving a 97 4Runner. It had Yokohama Geolanders. Bought the truck used with the Yoko's. I liked those tires and was going to replace with the same until I read the reviews on the LE2.The roads have been awful between Chicago and SW Michigan. Snow, ice, slush, smooth and everything in between. I noticed my old tires were...  Read More
