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

I change from the OEM Bridgestone Dueler that are basiclly the worst tires for this vehicle, to these bread on butter Firestone destination LE2 tire. This tire made the car change from good to best. The steering is smooth and responsive, good on wet no slippage whatsoever,excellent on dry, i dont go off road but i have a set on a Toyota land cruiser Prado...  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

Without a doubt, this is one of the BEST tires I have ever used on a vehicle! I have about 10K miles on it now & the tread wear is perfect along with the ride & performance. I recently drove from Lancaster PA to Richmond VA in the late winter storm that hit in late Feb and had ZERO issues in several inches of snow and in ice. The ride is smooth and noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I bought the Firestone Destination A/Ts based on their very high ratings in the Survey section at Tire Rack. In the past, I always thought Michelin made the best tires, so I was somewhat skeptical of switching to the Firestone brand. After 11 months and 19,000 miles of driving, it's clear that the Firestone Destination A/T is the best tire that has ever been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination M/T

I have had the FS Destination MT on my Jeep for 5 years at approx 30-40K miles. I have nothing but good things to say about these tires. Being in the military I travel every three years. I purchased in Northern Michigan, near the UP. Lots of off roading and winter driving. With a fully packed Jeep, I drove from Northern Michigan to Alaska. Ran the ALCAN....  Read More

Only One Tire Available for My Mazda CX-7?

Many drivers of some Mazda CX-7 models will find that their Original Equipment 215/70R17 tires only have one replacement option when the time comes for a new set -- the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400. When you search by size, you'll also see there's a winter tire option available with Bridgestone's Blizzak DM-V1. While these two choices will cover any season...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

From start of use to now (7200 mi) this is the quietest tire I have used. Quiet on all surfaces. Quieter than the howling Firestone M&S tires that came on the van. Traction this winter has been superb! I plan to purchase for our Mustang next fall. Have used Micheline Alpin Primacy Snow tire before on both Sienna & Mustang. This Blizzak WS80 is SUPERIOR to...  Read More

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 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

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
