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

General Grabber HTS 60 Impresses

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

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 Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

I owned the original Revo; this review is for that. They were a great tire for winter driving in CO and MT. They were shot/mostly bald by 30k when they were retired; fwiw they honestly could have been rotated more often than they were. The traction was quite poor on wet/snow near the end of life, but they still worked well in dry conditions. Considering the...  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 Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I bought these shortly after buying my jeep used back in 2010. Since then i've gone offroading several times and these tires do great considering how quiet they are on-road. Where these tires fall short is snow traction and wear. For some reason the outer part of the tread is made almost half the depth of the inner part so after 20k miles my tires are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Affinity Touring

I put these on our minivan last fall before driving up to Sandusky from Pittsburgh. They ride nice and seem to handle well..On dry ground. We get snow and the van is parked. If the street is so much as white our van doesn't move. It's really quite pathetic.I just ordered a set of Firestone Winterforce's for my Forester, I don't really need them but they are...  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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I know this is a early review however I have to say something about these tires. I replaced a set of FLAT NOISEY Goodyear Regatta's with these. It is like Night and Day. German Design. 800 Wear. A Traction B Temputure T rated 118MPH . These handle better in dry and wet driving. The Video review is right on about these tires. You Tube Videos show you why this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I live in the northeast and obviously deal with all types of weather conditions. For years, I always ran Bridgestone Revo's. I ran them on two Grand Cherokees and also on the 2004 Tahoe I have now. I bought the Tahoe with 50,000 miles on it and now have 200,000. By seeing the reviews here on tire rack and a garage, I decided to try the Firestone Destination....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Just replaced the OEM Firestone FR710 tires after approx 60K miles. The OEM's were downright dangerous in any standing water at any speed > 50mph but they were quiet and provided good gas mileage. In snow, forget it, I just tried to avoid driving. Being an old guy I'm just interested in safety, comfort/quiet and good gas mileage. The only spirited driving I...  Read More
