Better Priced Options for the 19" Equipped Ford Escape

Some of the newer Ford Escape models are arriving on dealer's showroom floors installed with tire size 235/45R19. Unfortunately, there are only a handful of options in that size and they tend be on the higher side of the price scale. There is hope out there though. We have found an alternate size that offers more choices and has a lower price. This alternate...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 M

Don't know why everyone else is complaining about tread wear. Came OEM, 18,500 miles of somewhat aggressive driving and still 8/32's on all 4 tires. Snow grip is awesome (compared to the Michelin Pilot MXM4s on my previous car, 2010 Ford Fusion.) Only flaws are the rough ride and road noise but it doesn't bother me. After all, if you want a quiet luxury car,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

I just recently installed the BFG KO2's on my 2011 Ford F-150 5.0. So far I pretty much have nothing but good things to say about this tire. I'm pretty easy-going in my driving, so I haven't really push these tires to their limits on or off R so I haven't really push these tires to their limits on or off road. The three immediate differences that I noticed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I was lucky that the new Michelin Premier LTX tires came out in June in for my 2012 Ford Explorer. This is the 3rd set of tires I have put on my car which currently is at 99,500 miles. The first set of Hankook Optimo tires were horribly unsafe and I took them off at 35,000 miles. The next set of Michelin Latitude Tour tires lasted until 98,750 miles but...  Read More

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

Hey Guys,I just wanted to share my experience with this amazing Michelin product. I own a modified 2014 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 which dyno-tuned at 413hp@407tq. Previously, I purchased Mickey Thompson Street Comp 255/40/19 & 295/35/19 tires about 4 months ago, an extreme summer performance tire. Well the tires were great if you are a road course/autocross...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I've only had these tires for about 100 miles but they are vast improvement over the goodyear eagles that came with the vehicle. The Michelins are much quieter, I would estimate a 10th of the noise that the goodyear's produced.Lousy experience with installer in my area, actually refused to install tires. I had to have them picked up and brought to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hoosier A7

I have run many track tires and by far these hoosier A7s are the stickiest most predictable compound ever. I run the 275/35/15 on a 2200lb, 215 front wheel horsepower supercharged Focus (yes,a Ford Focus) on all 4 corners and first time out set the Super Unlimited track record (1:48.7 seconds) at a 14 turn,2.3 mile road course (Whiskey Hill Raceway in...  Read More

Came as original equipment on my 2008 Ford F150. Has 93,000 miles (152,000 km) with 3 mm of tread left. Mostly highway driving-- 70% highway, 30% city. No problems with this tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I cannot speak to the longevity of this tire but I'll assume that the majority of people looking at this tire are much more interested in performance than longevity anyways. To put it simply, I LOVE these tires!! I was very pleasantly surprised with the wet traction capabilities even before I was able to really test them at the track. I run what they call...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I have a 2013 Ford F150 4x4 crew cab with HD tow package. The tires are OEM. In the 2 1/2 years that I owned the truck, I have put on 55K miles of which 25K miles is pulling a traveler trailer weighing 7K. I could get 5 to 10K more mileage from the tires. But I am planning a 7K mile trip and would rather be safe than sorry. If weather conditions get really...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

After 2,500 miles on the Tires couldn't be more satisfied.A noticeable difference in the noise level as I switched from Michelins. I know that the older tires were going to have more noise due to wear but I've been putting Michelins on all my cars but changed due to what I felt was excessive wear on the Michelins. These tires are the quietest tires I've had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

This is my 7th set of Bridgestone Duler Alenza tires so they are a proven soloution to me. I have run these tires on two models of Chevrolet Suburan and on my 2013 Ford Explorer Limited and have been very satisified with there performance and durability. I travel the mid atlantic states and I highly recomend them for on road and highway use as a safe,...  Read More

As one of the best bang-for-your-buck upgrades, a set of dedicated lightweight...  Read More
