Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

Just put these on, other than some impact harshness (45 series) they're ---- impressive for the money, quiet and smooth. They balanced perfectly which is more than I can say for the OE Firestone Firehawk GT. I wanted the Eagle Sports but read reviews about balance/ride disturbance issues (typical Goodyear). Steering response off center is a but slow, but I'm...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

Just put these on my 300C Hemi, wow am I impressed. I replaced the OE Firestone's with these and saved $170.00 but I feel got a much better tire. I only have 500 miles on them but they balanced perfectly, steering response is nice and ride quality is impressive. Snowy ride into work this morning was uneventful. I will update after a few thousand miles.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

Had these for a couple thousand miles. More quiet than the stock Potenza S001 and probably just as grippy if not more in the dry. I was skeptical at first, due to the price, but have been very happy with them so far. They are an aggressive looking tire and I would say definitely perform the part. After about 20+ Autocross runs in them I have noted hardly any...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Had these BFG KO 2 on for just over 20k miles. I have been keeping them rotated and balanced per schedule and I am very happy with these tires. I really like the way these tires look on the Suburban also. I have not had the chance to drive in deep snow, being in the south, but dry, wet, dirt, mud, gravel, grass, etc these tires are outstanding. Tread wear...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Champion Fuel Fighter (T-Speed Rated)

Bought these to replace BFG Touring TA with 3/32 tread remaining; tires were horribly loud and vibrated like crazy. Put most of the miles on commuting 170 miles each day. I only got these due to dealer giving me a great deal for being a loyal customer. Considered Michelins, but they were more than double what I paid, and reviews were not that positive. Even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Original tires were BFG Trail TA which were absolute junk. I replaced them with Bridgestone AT Revo's which are an amazing tire for this truck. I could go through snow and ice without having to use four-wheel-drive whereas the BFG's I had to use for four wheel drive in the same conditions. The only drawback with the AT Revo's is I could barely get 30,000...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Champion Fuel Fighter (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Absolutely a topnotch tire! Excellent ride, handling and wear. Have not had them through a winter yet but have no reason to doubt the performance I expect. Fuel mileage on the highway also increased 1 mpg. Definitely recommend this tire!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

These tires have been fantastic on my Mustang. The only downside is it does seem to decrease gas mileage, but it's a minimal change. The biggest issue with these tires is the noise, but it's completely worth it for the traction and stability these tires provide.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

My car is a 6spd manual and with my previous tires (Firestone Wide Oval Indy 500 & Pirelli P Zero) I could not go full throttle in 1st gear from a roll. With these tires I can roll into full throttle and it will stick ! Also, 0-60 times are on average .2 seconds faster repeatedly. I'm running the same 0-60 times on the street with these tires as I was on a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor

Second set of Wrangler S-A tires on a Tacoma. 1st set (P265/70/R16) on '03 Tacoma DblCab 4x4 OffRoad lasted 90,000 miles (six years). No leaks/flats/problems or complaints. When replaced, still had 1/8 inch tread left but started to show dry rot/UV cracks, were hard as rock). Replaced them with Firestone Destination A/T. Firestones were quiet, soft-riding,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I was looking for a decent tire for my daily driver that occasionally sees a track and canyons. I initially was going to go the tried and true Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Glancing over the TireRack website I see a tire I have never seen before, the Indy 500. I was attracted to the tread design and the specs was what I was looking for. Better yet they were...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Bought these tires towards the end of winter so didn't really get alot of use in snow but the couple times I did they gripped fairly good and responded well. I have 3k on then now and no issues. Wearing evenly, quiet, smooth, and responsive to wet and dry conditions. Overall pleased with tires especially being a firestone brand   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

These are my first set of firestone tires, tons of research and thanks to tire rack they make it easy to compare! My first set of tires were a set of cooper zeon rs-3 tires and they were great but these firehawks blow them out of the water, large sweeping edge and better wet traction, tons of traction period! My other set was a set of sentury and for only a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

only use this for my weekend fun drives. for the price, these are the bomb. tires are a soft compound so steering response is not as responsive with slight wheel turns, but when you actually do some hairpin turns and pushing these tires on the autocross, they stick like --------. i had more expensive tires but after buying these, such a waste of money. i can...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I did about a months worth of research trying to find the right tire for my speed3. My car is upgraded and is pushing 300whp and 330wtq. I was having issues with traction in 3rd gear on dry pavement with my Yokohama YK580's and the wet was almost a joke! So long story short, after video after video and review after review, i stumbled on these tires just a...  Read More

The spring/summer testing season is underway and the first tests include the new batch of Standard Touring All-Season tires. In this batch of tires, many of us were curious about the new Firestone Champion Fuel Fighter.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I have found my tire! Absolutely adore these. I was a little iffy, because I felt the price was low for something with such tremendous reviews all over the place. But WOW, what great tires. I've tried Goodyear Eagle RS-As and RS-A2s, Firestone Firehawks, Hankook Ventus V12s and a couple of others on these big ol' Chargers and the G-Force Sport Comp-2s are so...  Read More

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

I bought these tires and I LOVE them so far. From day 1 the ride in my Benz is super smooth and quiet again after getting rid of the OEM Bridgestone tires. I drive 'somewhat' fast on the interstates and not quite as fast in city driving. So far at 1,500 miles they are super smooth and quiet. I was trucking last weekend on I-65 Southbound at around 98ish and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone FR740

This tire was oem 215/45/17 on my new Corolla. I just performed the 5k rotation myself and wish to post my observations. I got this car to supplement a 2004 Corolla with 70 series tires as my comparison. The biggest change I noticed was ride quality . The 45 series is excellent and has no road noise that bothers me. The car is quiet at freeway speeds to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I bought a 4 tire set 215/45/17 true contacts to replace oem Firestone 740 on a 2015 Toyota Corolla S. First impression is wow! Based my decision on tire rack test and reviews posted here. Tire rack test results match my sentiments rather closely. My opinion here is to compare the performance against what came on the car. Not to bash the firestones, but the...  Read More
