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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

Used this tire on Ram 2500 Cummins Turbo Diesel - often hauling 13,000 pound 5th wheel. Does great towing, in snow, mud, dirt, and low noise on dry road for the size (315's) I am impressed with the treadler even when pumping them up to handle towing applications. Very good tire if you use your truck for what it was meant to do   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Bought our Escape with 90,000. Immediately put a set of Destination LE2 on it. Vehicle now has about 160, 000. Last summer put on second set of Destinations. First set had over 50,000 still good but for snow like to have deep tread. These are great tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Living in New York my priority has been to have great traction in the snow. Was running firestone snow tires year round, trading off noise and wear for great winter driving. Despite the traction, the tire hum just wore me down. Began looking for tire with great snow traction with silence. The reviews of LE2 were always excellent so gave it a shot. What a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I purchased this tire strictly for winter driving in snow/ice. I drive on frozen Minnesota lakes and no maintenance roads. I do take them off in the spring and put on Firestone Destinations for summer and fall use. I can't believe the traction these tires achieve in snow and ice. I drive very few highway miles in the winter. The tires look like the day I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

So far mostly highway driving, great ride and traction even in very heavy rain storms at highway speeds. No slipping or hydroplaning, very secure feel. Drive is smooth with excellent road feel and very responsive for steering and control. Haven't had them for ice and snow yet. No off road driving.I like these much better than the original Goodyear Wrangler...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I can't contest for the mileage yet as I just purchased these less than 1000 miles ago. As for every other aspect of this tire,,,,,, WOW, I've owned winter specific tires in the past (Bridgestone's WS60, Firestone's and Dunlop's)The Bridgestone's were hands down a superior tire over the Dunlop's and Firestone's. But these Pirelli's have changed my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

Best snow you will ever buy, period! Everyone who complains about how bad their car is in the winter, I tell them about this tire. Every single person has come back amazed. They can't believe it's the same car. People who think their all season tires are good, haven't tried a true snow tire. Not even close, these tires will walk circles around them. My dad...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce LT

I live in Syracuse NY (just like Buffalo) Snow town USA. I purchased a set of 4 studded snow tires, after driving around on all season and I have to tell you the change was outstanding, no more white knuckle driving. These tires recently went through a snow storm, we are talking 6 to 8 drifts with a standard 3 to 4 mealy snow, the complete way to work. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Phenomenal. Finally had some snow, ice, and several days of subfreezing temps. Have X-Ice 3's on the other car and have used Firestone Winterforce on this. I'd compare as follows--vs. the Winterforce: much better ice and slush grip; slightly better unpacked snow grip; better packed snow grip; much, much lower road noise; slightly softer feeling ride; the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Commercial T/A Traction

These BF Goodrich tires are 100x better than the Firestone Transforce HT's that where on the truck, No more slipping and Sliding around on wet/snow covered roads anymore.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is my first set of winter tires on this car, and my first set of studless winter tires. On previous vehicles, I used studdable winter tires such as the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 1 and the Firestone Winterforce. While those performed fine in winter conditions, they were definitely noisy and rough riding. Not so with the Blizzaks. The ride is smooth and while...  Read More

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 Winterforce UV

I drive in the snowbelt of NE Ohio. 4 wheel drive is a must if you want to get to work in the morning before the snowplows have had time to get to the roads. I have been driving in the snow for 35 years. This is the best tire I have ever purchased. There is some road noise but I will except that for how well they perform on the Ice and snow. I will be buying...  Read More
