Initial Review, 40,000 Miles on Tires
March 22, 2013

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.

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!

These tires are OEM from Ford when I purchased my truck. I read lots of reviews about them and was quite worried about the upcoming Minnesota winter do to what I felt was a high number of bad reviews. However after I have had them for over three months in the deep snow, cold, slush, freezing rain I am VERY happy. Are they as good as a dedicated snow tire? Of course not. Are they as good as a dedicated off-road tire? Nope. But are they a great all around tire supplying above average traction for 90% of driving conditions? Yep. People who complain about the traction of these tires are either really really bad drivers or are comparing them to a single use tire. I will have to wait and see how they wear long term. Last thing, for the people who are disappointed Ford puts these highway oriented tires on a truck, don't blame Ford, blame the EPA for forcing companies to make products the public doesn't want. Its all about the MPG's.

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.

The tread life of this tire is the worst of any tire I have owned in over 35 years of driving. At 29,000 miles two tires have worn into the wear bars. Have always had the tires rotated at 5,000 miles, checked the air pressure monthly, and have only done light trailer towing; 1200 lbs. Once the tires had worn down to about 50% the ride became harsh.

Replaced General Grabber HT's. They were a decent tire on the highway but that is about it. After 30k they were useless. I picked these up prior to winter and they have preformed very well so far. Great in rain and snow. Decent in mud as well. The ride quality is not the best but the price was right and the warranty is there. Tire looks good on the truck too. Looking forward to seeing how they hold up.

Came standard on my King Ranch - very familiar with Pirelli, we have Pirelli tires on 3 fine German automobiles, including their respective sets of winter tires. These are quiet and smooth, even at highway speeds. Handling is superb in the dry and still pretty good in the wet. Sure they spin now and again when you pull away from a standstill in the wet, but it's a truck, with a suspension that has to cover a pretty wide range of loads. They do a pretty good job of handling everything from dry pavement to ice and snow, winter tires would be better in ice and snow, performance tire better on dry pavement, but they're a pretty good compromise, performing well across the spectrum. I'm used to changing my P Zeros at 10 to 15,000 miles, so I'm delighted these are only partially worn at 38,000 miles. They're coming on for 4 years old, I might need to replace them before they wear much more, mainly because of the rubber aging and hardening. I'm a big believer in sticking with the brand that the OEM fitted, so I'll replace them with the same.

I replaced a set of Michelins with these. I expected to lose overall performance, but boy! was I surprised! For one thing, the speedometer is more accurate - I don't know why. Handling is excellent, ride is very acceptable, and the Goodyears are quieter than the Michelins were. Dry traction is excellent, and wet traction is amazingly good. I have yet to have them hydroplane on me. I live in North Carolina, so winters are relatively mild, but we do get some snow and ice. So far, I have been very happy with their performance under these conditions. No, they won't perform with dedicated snow tires, but they are immeasurably better in all other respects!
Tread wear seems to be quite good. The tires have about 12,000 miles on them, and a little over 1/32" wear so far. They have stayed balanced and smooth rolling, and they run quite cool: I check their temperature occasionally with an infrared thermometer. They seldom run above 180°, where the Michelins often hit 190° or higher. (Surface temperature, of course: I don't try to read in the bottom of the tread.)
Would I recommend these tires? --------, I already have - several times! Friends of mine who bought them based on my recommendation have agreed with me - these are excellent tires.

These tires are great i have 55,000 miles on them and still have some tread left. I will be buying these tires again. I have gone from mud to 4 feet of snow in these and they have performed perfectly. If you own a 1/2 ton pickup like I do remember that these are commercial grade tires and ride like that. When you hit a hole you know it. I keep mine inflated to 60 psi because when they were at 80 psi the ride was pretty rough. If you want tires that will last and take you through almost anything buy these tires.

Great tire.My friend convinced me to get them and I am glad I got them. I travel to my ranch quite a bit in my truck and put them to work out there. I go mudding whenever I get a chance and I've never gotten stuck with these tires. I travel down dirt roads and the handling is superior. I've gone through puddles in the road at 50+ mph and haven't hydroplaned. Definitely going to buy these tires again.
