Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

This is an incredible tire for the price. I caught them for $99 each from Tirerack and my local Firestone store mounted and balanced them at the Tirerack negotiated price, very reasonable. There is no noise at all, they ride very quietly, smoothly and responsively both around town and especially on the highway, even at 90 mph speeds. They have a very secure...  Read More

Ready or Not Winter 2017 is Coming

Last winter definitely started out slowly, but eventually January came round and winter got serious. Are you living in the snowbelt and wondering how bad the winter of 2017 is going to be? Nobody really knows, but we do know it's coming. Do you need to run winter / snow tires? If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow, you should...  Read More

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 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 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 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

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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I have read reviews on these tires that vary so much. These are the best tires I have had on my car. I've had Firestones and General. The ride is smooth and not loud. Maybe its the vehicle. I recommend these for Ford Fusions.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Have these tires on a dedicated 17inch steel wheel. Did not notice any difference in ride from the OEM 20 inch on Goodyears. Noise is a little louder than a all season tire due to having them studded at 0-30mph. Anything over 30mph and you cant hear the studs anymore. Tires do exceptionally well in deep snow. Pulled out a mini cooper in 20inches of fresh...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

Me and Firestone have a complicated relationship I really don't like the brand, their tires usually only last for a year or two and that is a lot especially when your investing $400-600 for your car.These tires at the time of me buying them were about $90 bucks a pop I couldn't resist the price was just too good. I am using these as a summer tire in CT only...  Read More

Getting Ready for Winter 2016: Which Winter Performance Category is Right for You?

Remember last winter?¬†Will this winter be just as bad? Predictions will be made but nobody really knows. The best course of action is to hope for the best but prepare for the worst. There is no simple rule of thumb on whether or not to run winter / snow tires. If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow, you should strongly consider...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Affinity Touring

Put these firestones on the wife's car when the original pirrelis wore out at 45K. These are much softer riding, more comfortable and quiet. I wanted an American tire to go with the Swedish car. So far so good. They are ready for their first rotation now at 20 K and tire wear is good. Just measured the wear at 8/32. I haven't tried them all that much in snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

This is the third winter for this set of tires and I am very pleased with the tires. My set is studded so the noise is noticeable at all speeds but I expected that. Traction on ice is superb and snow traction is outstanding. I can actually plow snow with the undercarriage of the car. I also drive about 10 miles per day on gravel and I haven't noticed any...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

First time buying winter tires and i couldnt be more happier. I put my car through the worst snow ever and never got stuck. The grip on these tires are amazing. Ice traction is ok, have to be more carefull but they are pretty loud on the highway. Overall great price for winter set.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

Absolutely amazing tire for snow! Unsurpassed dependability. I live in Wisconsin in the country where roads are not plowed well if at all sometimes, I fear no snow with these tires and have pushed my car to the limit in snow, I'm an aggressive/ offensive driver and have tried to send this car around with these and it just sticks! Drove through 10 in of snow...  Read More
