Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

WOW!, You guys are freak'n awesome. Everything I needed was right here and priced accordingly. For the money I could not have matched the price on this winter wheel and tire package, especially when one factors in mounting and balancing. What really blew my mind was the fact that my order was put together, shipped, and at my door in a little over 24 hours....  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 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 Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Very impressive. I've had these, Firestone Winterforce, and Blizzak WS-80's. The overriding plus is great slush and ice traction, coupled with a quiet highway road. It's hard to rate absolute performance vs. the WS-80's, since these are on the FWD Focus while my WS-80's are on the beastly (in the snow) AWD Subaru. But in braking and cornering, and general...  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 Winterforce UV

This has been my fourth winter and coming up on my fourth summer. I never changed them and they are fine with plenty of tread and more than 45K miles on the tires. They have performed real well in the summer. I rotate and balance every 3 months regardless of mileage. It's a rather noisy tire, I just turn up the music. It's very good on snow, and hardpack,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

After much research, I bought a set of these for my 4x4 f150. I'm a cdl truck driver 10+years, so please don't listen to all the whiny people who can't drive on snow, And don't have a clue what they are talking about.This is the best all around tire I have found for light pickups/ SUVs. What I like is they are a strong- well made tire! Great traction, great...  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 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 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 Winterforce UV

I had a problem many years ago with Firestone tires and I swore I would never buy them again. Well, I did buy these snow tires a couple years ago, and I have to admit they are excellent. 400' driveway in upstate NY. Lots of snow and wind blowing drifts across it. We have been able to just churn our way through them with the all-wheel drive CRV. Excellent...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500

These tires are wearing tremendously well. Not as quiet a former Hankook's, but the wet and dry traction has gone beyond expectation, even as tread depth has decreased. I am likely to stick with these going forward, particularly for the price.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

I waited until the recent snow to write this. Pleased to say I've had excellent traction in the rain and snow, both in compacted snow/ice and deep snow. I'd say these tires are overall superior to the OEM Kumho tires that I got 60k miles out of. Overall this is a very good value (price for performance). The tires are quiet on the highway and responsive on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce LT

Good winter tires at a great price. I'll be reviewing more once I get more miles on the tires this fall/winter.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Transforce AT

I can't believe all these negative reports. Perhaps there problems with this tire is due to operator malfunctions. I believe the Firestone Transforce AT is one of the very best tires on the market. for the past 8 years I have had those tires on my 1 ton dually 2 wheel drive truck, and I plow snow with that truck. Tjose tires gove excellent traction in mud,...  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 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

Is the Firestone Winterforce a Good Winter Tire?

As one of the most economically priced winter tires available on the market, many drivers question if the Firestone Winterforce is a good fit for their vehicle. Does the tire have what it takes to compete with many of the newer generation front-runners? While the tire isn't as soft as many Studless Ice & Snow tires, and therefore not as well suited for ice,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Great all around tire for New England. I use them all year long since the price is low. Puncture resistance on course gravel/stone roads is not so good. Had a half dozen flat tires due to sharp stone punctures. GREAT SNOW TRACTION!!! Actually take them off-road in the winter. Once my friend with an S10 4WD pick up was unable to follow me going up a steep...  Read More
