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

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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

So far I am very impressed with these Firestone Precision Touring tires. If you live in a climate that experiences ice and snow on a regular basis, these tires are a very good choice! Wet and dry traction is also very good. The ride is smooth and the noise level is also quite good. They are a little noisy at first but after a few hundred miles they quiet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

These tires are a great choice for a light truck. I have over 60000 miles on this set, and I will be ordering another set within a week or two. I drive a combination of highway and city, and during the winter, some occasional snow driving. The tires have performed very well in all conditions. They are reasonably quiet, look great, and you simply can't beat...  Read More

Best Replacement Tires for the Honda Odyssey

When shopping for tires for the Honda Odyssey most customers tend to look for tires that are quiet, comfortable riding and provide good traction in snow and on ice. Because of the large open space inside the cabin of the minivan, road noise is always an issue. Choosing the right tire can really make a big difference. A few great options to consider when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I bought my used 2005 Mini Cooper S Convertible in January 2014 from a local car dealership here in southwest Ohio. It came with Firestone Firehawk GTA-2 195/55R16 tires that had about 75% of the tread wear remaining. There was light snow on the ground when I drove my new purchase home. With just a couple inches of snow/ice on my driveway, I literally got...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

Had these tires installed in early November 2013 and have driven in sufficiently varying conditions to write an initial review. Plain and simple, these are the best d@mn tires I've ever driven on in rain, snow and ice. There is a peace of mind you get with these things that no matter how bad the snow gets, you WILL get home. They laugh at rain. From time to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

Decent snow performance. I'm not sure what to make of the people who seem to claim that they have little to no slippage in snow with the tire. Don't expect miracles. I did and I'm a little disappointed.In deep snow, the tires are good enough to clear the snow out of the way. I don't fear getting stuck in 4 inches of snow like I did on all-seasons. I don't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

I bought these tires in 2012 I had them studded. I live in the country and have never misses work. They do great on my 05 Mustang Gt I had all 4 studded and I drive 50 miles back and forth to work every day. They do great in ice covered roads. As long as the snow is not past the bumper it dose great. Every one I work with can't believe that I drive a mustang...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

Excellent tire!!! Have been through several 6-10 snow storms in the first 1000 miles and tires have performed better that expected. Have used Blizzaks for many years and tried these based on price and feel that they are at least equal to Blizzak performance. Highly recommended for heavy snow areas. No experience with highway travel yet, but since they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone FR710

Just replaced the OEM Firestone tires with another set at 61,000 miles. Tires were quiet except for the last couple of thousand miles, grip is ok for low rolling resistance.Please with these which is why I bought the same again. Good price   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Just had these installed this morning with a fresh coating of light, slick snow on the roads. My drive to the shop on my old, severely worn Michelens was putrid. The car spun its wheels with the smallest of acceleration, even on just wet roads...the snow was like an ice rink. After getting the General's put on, the difference is unbelievable. Even on steep...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

1000 miles on these so far, have tried in a light snow and they performed very well. I replaced Cross Terrains that were worn down and hard by 45,000 miles. These tires are quieter and more far responsive in the wet than the Michelins, but they do transfer road irregularities a bit more than the Cross Terrains. Another Escape review mentioned this - perhaps...  Read More
