Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

only use this for my weekend fun drives. for the price, these are the bomb. tires are a soft compound so steering response is not as responsive with slight wheel turns, but when you actually do some hairpin turns and pushing these tires on the autocross, they stick like --------. i had more expensive tires but after buying these, such a waste of money. i can...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I did about a months worth of research trying to find the right tire for my speed3. My car is upgraded and is pushing 300whp and 330wtq. I was having issues with traction in 3rd gear on dry pavement with my Yokohama YK580's and the wet was almost a joke! So long story short, after video after video and review after review, i stumbled on these tires just a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I have found my tire! Absolutely adore these. I was a little iffy, because I felt the price was low for something with such tremendous reviews all over the place. But WOW, what great tires. I've tried Goodyear Eagle RS-As and RS-A2s, Firestone Firehawks, Hankook Ventus V12s and a couple of others on these big ol' Chargers and the G-Force Sport Comp-2s are so...  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 Firehawk Indy 500

Me and Firestone have a complicated relationship I really don't like the brand, their tires usually only last for a year or two and that is a lot especially when your investing $400-600 for your car.These tires at the time of me buying them were about $90 bucks a pop I couldn't resist the price was just too good. I am using these as a summer tire in CT only...  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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

I drive aggressively and on the road most of the day and must say best New tire I have ever bought. I not only caught these tires on sale NO ONE, not even personal friends whom work in the business could match or beat the price. I read most of the reviews on these tires and the OEM Firestone 740 tires and it was a no brainer. The Firestone were noisy as they...  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

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
