Initial Review, 50,000 Miles on Tires
January 05, 2014

Ok, so I'm a woman and not heavy into tire culture and definitely not an expert. I've bought probably about 10 sets of tires in my life and have always driven pickup trucks since I was a teenager. Live in Florida, so I have no snow knowledge. I do drive through a lot of pouring rain & standing water. I don't "off road" in the sense that I make a sport out of it, but I drive through the pastures to do farm chores. Dirt roads are a daily part of life AND I do a lot of 70mph+ highway driving besides. Taking all that into consideration, these are hands down the best tires I've ever owned. The smoothest and the quietest, I give them 10+ for dry traction and handling. I would give them 10 for wet traction, but can't say I've ever given them an excuse to hydroplane. But with normal driving in the heavy rain, yes, they've been great and I feel very safe even at highway speeds. I bought these tires in 2009 for my 4wd F150 and I just repurchased today for the same truck- not just because they are great tires overall, but because the treadlife is amazing. I've got approaching 50K on these and I've still got 1/4" tread all around. I've never had a set of tires wear so SMOOTHLY or EVENLY on all fours. Especially amazing considering it is a full size pickup. I haul heavy loads and tow horse trailers frequently. Hopefully, today's purchased replacements will perform just as well and not disappoint.

So, yeah, I highly recommend these tires!

This tire works very well on my LR3 - apparently not so on ford F-150ish trucks. They are very quiet. Traction in the wet and light or hard-packed snow is very good. Have not seen any anomalous tread wear or change in road noise. Very happy with this tires.

I purchased these tires to replace the Bridgestones on the truck when I bought it. It got to be a real pain blowing out the thin sidewalls on the Bridgestones every time they rubbed up against an exposed root or rock on some of the country roads I frequent. The ride quality got a little rougher from moving up to the load range d tires, but stability has greatly improved. I do a fair amount of driving through soft ground ( yup, in a 2WD truck ) and have thus far motored right on through up to 8" deep mud with nary a slip or slide. We don't see much snow and ice this far south and I have no intention on driving north far enough to just to try them out, but a trip to the beach is in the near future. I'll be going along with a 4X4 just in case, but the way these tires handle in the mud, it will interesting to see if the do as well in loose sand. I'd have gone with a set of Dunlop RVXT, but they're no longer available in any size I can use. A great big "SCREW YOU" to Goodyear for that. I'm thinking I'll put a lift on my Expedition now and put a set of these Pirelli's on it too. Tread wear has been pretty dadgum good too. I'm running 45 psi on a 5600 lb truck and have lost just about 1/32" tread in the 15K miles I've put on them. Dealing with Tire Rack is always a pleasure. Thanks for a great deal on a great set of tires.

Wow, with 215,000 miles on the truck I have bought my fair share of tire, but these take the cake. In the summers I surf fish and find these tires (although not rated) as superior in sand. In the winters we routinely travel to upstate NY and VT and while we have only been once this year and only had them in deep snow and ice 3 or 4 times this year, WOW they are great!! Traction is awesome, hardly need 4wd but when enabled I don't think anything can get these tires spinning. NO complaints, perfect tires, I have owned the factory Pirelli's and Bridgestone Duelers they cant compare to the performance of these tires. If you are on the fence, BUY them. About ready to purchase same set, different size, for my 08 Outback.

Five days after I purchased these tires upon Tire Racks recommendation. My family drove from Indiana to Virginia in the pouring rain for 2 days through the mountains with no problems. We drove back in rain and in a snow storm. This experience gives me extreme confidence in these tires. I would recommend them to anyone as an all weather tire. Thanks Tire Rack for the recommendation!

Tires were great when new but once tread started to wear the snow and mud traction started to really suffer. Little less than half tread left and they have been horrible in snow and mud for a while. They look good and have a nice ride but they wear pretty fast and traction really suffers after tread starts to wear. For the money there has to be a better tire.

 

What are the Best Tire Brands?

Thursday, September 19, 2013 by Cy Chowattukunnel

With millions of vehicles sold in the United States last year ranging from FIAT 500s to Ford F-150s, drivers have a myriad of choices. Shouldn't they also be able to have their tires their way, too? In a perfect tire world, every tire manufacturer would engineer the optimal tire for every car and driver. However, the market is very large and competitive, and instead of a few brands dominating all segments, there are all-stars that excel in their niches.

Even though Michelin was the first tire company to commercialize the radial tire back in 1948, all major tire manufacturers have the same core technology, such as radial ply construction, steel belts, etc. They often use the same or similar materials with some noteworthy exceptions, for example polyamide. As you research tires, judge a tire by how well it's been engineered for your specific needs.

Taking a look at the hypothetical case of Maria from Burnsville, Minnesota, she drives 16,000 miles per year in her 2009 Honda Civic EX Sedan which came with the 205/55R16 Original Equipment size. Her daily commute consists of two miles of suburban roads before hopping on the interstate for 25 miles of highway driving to reach work. She normally drives about five miles above the posted speed limit and has never received a speeding ticket.

What does Maria need in her tires?

  1. Snow grip - It's Minnesota! Running dedicate winter / snow tires during the winter is the best choice for her during the colder months.
  2. Wet grip - Spring showers will cause her to need adequate wet grip to brake, corner and accelerate properly in the rain.
  3. Treadwear - Since Maria drives quite a bit, she's needs a tire that combines good treadwear and has enough grip to stop quickly.
  4. Low tread noise and a good ride -  She's in her car over one hour each day, she needs a tire with low tread noise and the ability to ride well over bumps. Tire noise is heavily dependent on vehicle design and ride compliance will inherently be challenged in short wheelbase cars.
  5. Relative efficiency - One reason she got the Civic was because of its fuel efficiency. It would be helpful to have a tire that's engineered for efficiency even though tire choice is only a partial factor of fuel economy with speed, air pressure and other things coming into play.  

What tire is best for Maria? Based on our summer and winter testing, I would recommend the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422. To find the tire that's best for you car, shop by vehicle.

Best Price on Michelin Tires for Toyota, Honda, Nissan and More!

Tuesday, June 4, 2013 by Gary Stanley

When asked about which brand of tires are associated with quality, many think of Michelin. Their reputation is well deserved. For decades, Michelin has been an industry leader in tire technology, making some of the best tires that money can buy. While they make outstanding performance tires, like the Pilot Super Sport, Michelin may be best known for producing some of the smoothest and quietest riding all-season tires on the market.

Not everyone is looking for the best handling and steering response, instead many drivers simply want a tire that's quiet, safe and will last for a long time. For those who are looking for the best price on Michelin tires, check out a couple of the lowest priced options in two popular sizes.

205/65R15

This is a commonly used tire size for a mid-size sedan such as the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata, Nissan Altima, Ford Taurus and Chevy Malibu. The best priced Michelin tire in this size is the Defender. Michelin's Defender is an outstanding Standard Touring All-Season tire with long wear, great traction and a quiet ride. For more information on this tire, read "Michelin Defender Review and Test."

235/70R16 

Many SUVs, trucks and crossover vehicles use this common 16" tire size, including the Ford F-150, Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, Hyundai Santa Fe and various Jeep models. In this size, the lowest priced Michelin tire is the Latitude Tour. This tire, back in early 2012, was one of my top choices for vehicles being driven on the street only. It's still a top contender for those who don't take their vehicles off-road.

have a 2000 F150 7700(same as light duty F250) It's lifted 11" with cut out fenders and sees it's fair share of off-roading. We have hot dry desert climate in summer w/ cold icey n snowy winters here. I travel 264 miles each way every other week to go home from work. Over there its a mountain pass usually snow covered 4-5 months and heavy rains at home. I truely get the best/worst of all driving. These tires aren't pretty but siped they are great! 35,000 miles and still holding strong for probably a third year and totaling 60-75K miles. Now if they would just make larger tires!! hint hint ;)

I replaced my Goodyear Wranglers with these tires and so far I am really impressed with them. Mostly the ride comfort and road noise are what I like most. They are very smooth on the highway and quiet too. Only about a thousand mile on them but so far I like them a lot. Will update as tires wear in.

This is my 2nd set of identical tires for my Supercrew. The original set came on it from the factory and lasted in the neighborhood of 65,000 miles - there was still life left but I was going on a trip so I went ahead and replaced them. This 2nd set has been equally great tires. My truck now has a little over 99,000 miles and the tires are in great shape. I fully expect the tires to last until I buy a new truck in a couple years. I would absolutely recommend these tires! And I would buy another set in I needed too! Fantastic wear!

O.E. tires on my 2013 F150 275/65/18. Tires are not good at all. Sidewall flex, poor snow traction, very poor ice traction. Have to use 4wd in situations I shouldn't. Ford has a habbit of putting tires on their vehicles that don't fit the vehicle. All the O.E. tires are poor for the vehicles they put them on. Will be replacing these tires and wheels with 305/45/22 Fortera SL and selling the O.E. setup very soon.
