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 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)

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 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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

I replaced a set of Firestone Destination LE (not II) that had lasted about 35,000 mi. In comparison, these tires were orders of magnitude quieter. They are great on dry roads, I have had to make a few emergency stops and have felt quite confident in their performance. Quick starts on wet roadways result in absolutely no wheel slippage (partially attributed...  Read More

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

I bought these tires for my wife's Jetta after I was told the Firehawk Wideoval Indy 500 Summer tire was being discontinued. I had been running Blizzaks for the winter, and wanted a performance tire. The salesman told me that this tire is a great all around performer. I decided to test out the Firehawks in the snow, before putting the winter set on. Not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

I change from the OEM Bridgestone Dueler that are basiclly the worst tires for this vehicle, to these bread on butter Firestone destination LE2 tire. This tire made the car change from good to best. The steering is smooth and responsive, good on wet no slippage whatsoever,excellent on dry, i dont go off road but i have a set on a Toyota land cruiser Prado...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Without a doubt, this is one of the BEST tires I have ever used on a vehicle! I have about 10K miles on it now & the tread wear is perfect along with the ride & performance. I recently drove from Lancaster PA to Richmond VA in the late winter storm that hit in late Feb and had ZERO issues in several inches of snow and in ice. The ride is smooth and noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H724

DISCLAIMER: First off, I am not affiliated with TireRack or Hankook Tire Co. I have been a customer of TireRack for over a decade and I've never had 1 single problems.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

I am a bit of a tire geek and a believer that you buy a tire for a certain function. Know what you need it to do, and then decide on a tire accordingly. Do not assume that any tire with a good rating will make you happy. I have aggressive performance tires on my sports car. For the SUV, I have a set of LRR highway tires, and a set of dedicated snow tires....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

I was looking for a good all Season tires to install to my car after the original ones have not been changed for over 64 K miles. I just installed these tires on my car this weekend and just in time before we got hit with ice and snow here in Omaha, Ne. So far I do not have any complainants about them. They perform well in snow and ice, even though the roads...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A

Most people writing these reviews do not understand this tire. It is a high performance tire. That means it is not designed to be quiet, smooth, and long wearing.What it is designed for is police service. It should be run at its maximum pressure or it will wear out quickly due to its softer performance compound. Many departments run these at 41 psi...  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 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

My IS-350 has the staggered fitment: 225-40/18 and 255-40/18. I average 17K miles annually, mostly highway with aggressive city driving. I wanted summer tire performance with better wear and I hoped that the Pilot Sport A/S 3's would deliver.I bought the car used and the dealer installed Firestone Wide Ovals on the front and Fierce Instincts on the rear. 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 Firestone Destination ST

Don't know what that guy with the r350 deal was with his car, but these tires are great for the price. I own an AWD vehicle and I Hammer these tires from day one, with very spirited driving, in the worse kind of combination Street/Hwy driving. I put no less than 100 a day on these tires or more. I make these tires Squeal through corners in wet and dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

This tire has been great on our Ford Escape. Great traction during the warmer weather with rain. It provides great traction too! I was very surprised how I aggressive I could drive and the tires would grip and the car would not slip. The tires are still newer so I can't really speak for tread wear yet. I rotate them every oil change/3000 miles so they should...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

I purchased these tires for my '09 Venza on Black Friday this year. This is my 3rd set of tires on this car and I've never been thrilled with tires till now. I drove about 3K miles before the first snow. Now that it as snowed, I can say they are fantastic! As soon as they were installed, I felt the improved handling and grip to the road. I feel like I have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval RFT

I replaced the stock run flat tires on my c6 corvette. I was surprised how much better the car rode, handled etc. I have the Z51 handling package and these tire exceed the performance from the stock Goodyear's. The ride was much softer, the road noise that usually comes with Run Flat tires was gone. The wear on these tires are very little, for the price you...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk GT

Worst tires I have ever purchased. All I do is drive 20 minutes to work in this car and the tires wore almost bare after 12,000 miles. The road noise was so bad you can't hear the radio. Terrible.   Read More
