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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

It's a great tire and it will not disappoint in any type of environment you can throw at. Road noise is minimal unlike some of the others saying it is loud. These tires make truck feel stable and truck does not wonder the road or feel mushy. I had Goodyear Wrangler SRA's on before which were terrible for handling, getting stuck in my wet front yard among...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE

Good wet traction which at the time was a high priority. I have dedicated winter tires, so haven't had the opportunity to evaluate their snow traction. Good treadwear, considering they are used on a pickup which spends a good deal of time towing a fifth wheel trailer which puts a lot of load on the tires. Reasonable price. Probably would not buy these again...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

My Mini Van is modified for my needs and is Wheel Chair accessible. Making it so, requires many modifications that effects many aspects adversely as well as driving dynamics. Traction in wet, ice & snow is a top concern for my needs and these tires performed very well for me. I live in Fayetteville AR and it's very hilly and since it does not snow a lot,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

I spent about six months researching tires, finally chose the Destination LE2's, and they've been a great choice for the price. They're quiet and responsive on dry, wet, and mildly snowy roads. I didn't have to deal with any deep snow last winter but I don't have any reason to believe they'd be a problem. I haven't experienced any significant change in fuel...  Read More

Firestone Destination LE 2: Consistent Strong Performance

One of our best-selling tires in the Highway All-Season performance category over the past few years has been the Firestone Destination LE 2. Like the original Destination LE before it, the Destination LE 2 has proven itself as a long-lasting, comfortable tire that has good road manners and dependable all-season performance. Featuring a good amount of...  Read More

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

The Goodyear tires my Challenger came with were loud and didn't handle particularly well. These Firestone Wide Oval Indy 500 tires are great performing tires and are reasonably priced. They look good too. I am on my second set of them. After less than a year on the Goodyears the car came with, the first set of Firestones lasted 2 years and the current set is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

This is a great tire, but not great for this car and my driving style. I sized this -1 (factory OEM is 17), and in doing so created the majority of my gripes I have with this tire. The size I bought it in has been discontinued.I have been using snows for the past 20 years, and I've tried Blizzaks, Generals, Firestones, Goodyears, Dunlops. I average around 7K...  Read More

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

I drive mostly highway, but much of it is on twisty canyon roads. On the rare occasion there isn't much traffic I get to put some cornering load into the tires. They do great, easy to make small adjustments and I don't get surprised. Turn in is prompt. I don't notice noise or drone. They do as well as the OEM Conti Contact at half the price. Will buy two...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

Purchased four of these tires for an old 1995 Subaru Impreza L AWD daily driver. My main concerns for new tires was superior snow/ice handling, acceptable/above average wet handling, and above average dry traction with a great tread-life while keeping prices low. After I did extensive research and comparison charts I purchased the Firestone Precision Touring...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Great tire. Although this is a winter tire I keep them on all year and am amazed on the wear and performance. For the price you cant go wrong.   Read More
