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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

In October, I bought a set of Destination LE2 tires for our 2011 Toyota Highlander (AWD). These tires are by far the best I've ever owned (on any car or truck) and have transformed this Highlander which came with Toyo Open Country as OEM tires. I have 6000 miles on them on Arizona highways and South Dakota snow and ice. On dry roads it is like the car is on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T D695

I replaced a set of Firestone Destinations with these tires. I thought it would be hard to find a tire I liked better then the Destinations. The only reason I tried these was because of the lengthy backorder on the Firestones. Despite I much I liked the Firestones, the tire is better then the Firestones in every way.I was concerned about the traction of the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I cannot make the depth of review that others make on Tire Rack. I had Continental performance tires before this set and there is not much difference to me. They are no noisier, they behave in the wet, they corner well although I cannot say I push them. I get close to the same MPG and they came at a great price. As with all tires, we'll see how they do when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

After 22,000 miles, including a cross country and back camping trip loaded down with gear, these tires have really impressed me. They do what an all-season tire should do--perform in all seasons well. I've owned a lot of tires for lots of different types of cars, including tuned BMW's and family wagons, and never have I felt really satisfied with an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

I operate a farm and these tires are on my Chevy Silverado Z71, the 8th Chevy 1500 I have owned and I always drive on Firestones with my trucks as I can get 80,000 + miles on a set of tires. These tires are the best winter tires I have owned in 40 yrs of driving. We get massive amounts of snow and I am often driving up my 400ft country driveway through 2 ft...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

THESE TIRES ARE AMAZING! I have a rear-wheel drive '95 Mustang that was terrifying to drive when it started snowing (I live in Michigan). I could NOT get up my driveway and just driving 25mph was dangerous. My boyfriend STRONGLY recommended Winterforce tires so I went ahead and spent the money for them AND I'D DO IT AGAIN IN A HEARTBEAT! (ended up getting a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

I purchased these in 1/9/09 so these have almost 4 winters on them. I purchased them because this is the car my bride drives 15 miles to work each day. One day I pulled out of my driveway with less than 2 of snow, (using 3 month old BS Turanza Serenity A/S tires. I was shocked the car had no control when starting from a stop; directing me toward the curb. I...  Read More
