Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

These tire rock on my Forester suv Limited with x-mode. Like tiger paws on the road. Very aggressive tread. Great winter tires but a bit noisy at 65mph.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

My IS-350 has the staggered fitment: 225-40/18 and 255-40/18. I average 17K miles annually, mostly highway with aggressive city driving. I wanted summer tire performance with better wear and I hoped that the Pilot Sport A/S 3's would deliver.I bought the car used and the dealer installed Firestone Wide Ovals on the front and Fierce Instincts on the rear. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Enhance C/X

Only 3,000 miles into owning the tires, but I can see a huge difference in these tires on wet traction. I had a $200 a piece firestones on my Mercury before I switched to these, and these tires are so much better on wet pavement. I haven't had a chance to take them through any snow yet, but once it does I will update this review with how they are in the snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

WOW!!! What a tire! I bought mine four years ago from TireRack already installed on steel wheels...what a great move on my part. I've driven them on my Dodge Grand Caravan (with the big motor...3.8 liters) and have lost traction while accelerating ONE TIME, and that was on glare ice. Packed snow and really cold ice are no challenge for this winter performer....  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 Winterforce UV

Studs installed and the tires perform securely. Bought the tires for winter driving only and this is the third season and would /will buy again. I do mostly back road driving, hills and sharp corners my suv sticks securely to the road. Not worried about any noise from the tires. The studs do sound like you have stones stuck in tires on dry pavement. When I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Just bought these tires to replace the OEM Bridgestones, which were pretty worn so any new tire probably would've felt as an improvement. I chose the Firestone Destination LE2's based on reviews here at Tirerack, Townfaire, and other internet sites. Very little miles on them so far, but initial impression is very high! These tires make the RAV4 feel like it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

Have driven 5000 miles in all conditions, summer and winter. Great tire all around, especially in snow. Had no problem on a ski trip in NYS with all the others spinning about.Bought this Sienna new, originally had Firestone's mounted on and asked the dealer to exchange these from a different model, good thing I did. We live in Cleveland and snow is a big...  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 Destination LE 2

I live in northeast Ohio and we get approx. 60 - 100 inches of snow a year. I purchased these in the fall and experienced all seasons now. They are extremely noise on dry pavement but handle quite well. They seem to cut thru the water in the rain even in a down pour. However, as far as snow, these are the worst. They are like driving on an ice rink...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

In October, I bought a set of Destination LE2 tires for our 2011 Toyota Highlander (AWD). These tires are by far the best I've ever owned (on any car or truck) and have transformed this Highlander which came with Toyo Open Country as OEM tires. I have 6000 miles on them on Arizona highways and South Dakota snow and ice. On dry roads it is like the car is on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

Just starting my sixth winter on these tires, mounted on steel rims. They have been great every winter. Light snow I don't even think twice about, they handle it like a champ! I've been in snow upwards of 12 inches and I was very impressed; if my front end was heavier I think they would have done better. They dug right down to pavement. This is my commuter...  Read More

What's the Best All-Season Tire for Ice and Snow?

All-season tires are a great option for many drivers. They are suitable for drivers who live in an area that receives occasional light snow, and/or freezing temperatures a few times throughout the year. Some all-season tires, such as the Continental ExtremeContact DWS, even provide above average snow capabilities that are a benefit in winter months. However,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Winter

After the Winter of 2013, I am completely sold on this tire. This tire made the Sienna AWD impossible to lose grip on snow or packed snow & ice. Even with over 6 of snow on the road last winter, the Sienna never lost grip and I felt 100% confident driving in the worst conditions. They're MUCH quieter than the Firestone run flats that are on during the...  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 Destination LE 2

These tires are silky smooth and very quiet. They wore evenly but did not get the life I was expecting out of them, I have 45K on them however have been worn almost to the wear bars for 2-3 months. Driving conditions in my area can be severe with winter lasting close to 6 months, with a lot of deep snow and ice... These tires should not be purchased if you...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

Tires installed in July 2009 and have now reached the end of their useful life here in Toronto, Ontario. I've driven over 60000km on them through all seasons (no winter tire changeover)and they have been GREAT. I have only rotated them once and they still wore very evenly. The only negative I have experienced is slippage when accelerating on wet surfaces and...  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
