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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Excellent Winter tires. If you live in the upper Midwest and above and own a Truck or SUV, these tires are a best buy if you need to drive in the snow. You can't beat the price and the snow traction. I was able to drive faster than conditions would otherwise allow without even a hint of loss of traction in the deep snow with these tires. For my wife's...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

I have these tires on three vehicles at the moment. A 2011 HHR, a 1997 K1500 4x4 and a 2004 Malibu. I luv these tires, I plow with the 4x4 and they work great, I run them only in the winter and change tires myself. I install at first snow and remove them after last snow. all tires are mounted on separate rims. am old time mechanic and know for a fact that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

If you are looking for a smooth, vibration free, ride in an even wearing tire this is NOT the tire for you. It performed well in light/heavy snow and only average on ice. That said, despite perfect alignment, it wore unevenly. If you ran your hand from the back of the tire to the front, it was rough - like saw tooth wear. That translates into loud conditions...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I put 4 of these Michelins on my F-350when the previous Firestone Destination tires wore out after 40K miles. The primary use of this truck is pulling our 13,000 lb. toy hauler. I found these Michelins to be very stable and solid pulling the trailer and forgiving when the trailer is not attached. They are quiet and responsive and although they have not seen...  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 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 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 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.

Firestones were quiet, soft-riding,...  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 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 Destination LE 2

Bought these tires and have almost 2,500 miles on them now. Overall these are very good tires. They are pretty quiet, have very good feel on my truck in both wet and dry conditions. Living in the north east I haven't gotten a chance to drive that much in snow but the little I did tires felt good and experience no concerns with traction using only 2 wheel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

I purchased these snow tires while living in Lake City, Florida. Needless to say, I got some really funny remarks when ordering/having them mounted. However, they were bought because we were moving to Upper Michigan (Marquette area), where we get TONS of snow. Most people thought we were crazy for buying them when we did (around the middle of March), because...  Read More

How do you improve upon a tire that already had so much going for it in dry, wet and wintry conditions? The General Grabber HTS was, for many years, one of the best performers in the Highway All-Season category, offering impressive ride quality, road manners and excellent wet traction. As time went by, however, the competition stepped up their game to catch...  Read More

Best Heavy-Duty Winter Tires

Many drivers of heavy-duty three-quarter-ton and one-ton pickup trucks use On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tires like the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 for winter driving. Other simply use standard Highway All-Season tires. While the all-terrain tires will typically outperform their all-season counterparts in snow traction, they are still not as good in winter...  Read More
