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

I replaced the OEM Pirelli Run Flat tires with these Michelin Pilots and have been very impressed with the benefits of the change.The Michelins generate less road noise and make the ride more compliant, most noticably over small ruts and bumps in the road surface. They are wearing very well, and I currently have 12,800 miles on them - they look about 30%...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

I just finished my first winter on these tires. /they performed better than I expected. I ever had any problem on unplowed roads or highway. During a severe black ice night I slipped and slided but made it home when every other vehicle on the road either crashed or was hopelessly stuck. The only time I had ant difficulty was when I went to drive around an...  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

Introducing the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Continental continues to produce many of the Original Equipment tires for a large amount of vehicles in production today. However, they do much more than manufacture the ContiProContact that may have come equipped on your vehicle from the factory. They have several lines of performance and touring tires for cars, trucks and SUVs that are at a reasonable...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Had the previous generation Verde (not Plus) on my previous Mercedes MLs. Moved up a size to the GL, and immediately after purchase took off the factory run-flat tires, replacing them with the Verde Plus. Extremely happy with them. I don't cut corners - the size is a touch too large (285 vs. 275) for the vehicle but that's part of what needs to be done. Ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I bought these tires to replace the OE Generals that were terrible at 29,000 miles. My truck now has 102,000 miles and these Michelins still have some good tread. I will replace them before the winter though, and yes with the same tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

As I was having the tires installed, the temp. dropped from 30 degrees down to 12 degress... All day it had been lightly raining and snowing on and off... When the temp drop so suddenly, the roadways turned to ice and the Lake Michigan snow machine started to near whiteout conditions. These tires were and are remarkable as my 6-speed manual Jetta responded...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I did a lot of research before purchasing these tires. I previously had Blizzaks on my old truck but went with these as I could buy the rims and tires for the price of the Blizzaks. I prefer them, and I never thought I would.I love these tires! It usually only snows a few times a year but when it does we need to be able to get around as they don't plough the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Turned my Yaris into a winter beast! After last winter (2013 in Southeast Michigan), I was sold on getting snow tires for the following winter. I'm glad I did, although winter 2014 didn't yield as much snow as winter 2013, these tires have been tested on snowy, icy, wintery roads and have not failed, even on the dry cold concrete, I'm a very confident...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I am a longtime Blizzak owner. The first set I owned was in 1998 for my Mazda Protege. It's amazing how Bridgestone continues to improve what I regard as the best winter season tire available. I've used DM1V's on my trucks and WS on my cars and crossovers for nearly two decades. They generally last 3 seasons before the multicell compound is broken down and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

These tires came on my truck I had purchased. From first glance I didn't give them any credibility and anticipated replacing them soon. After a winter of driving on them I must say these tires exceeded my expectations. If you are looking for an all around tire excluding extreme off roading, these are an excellent chioce.I drove through my snow covered field...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Got these tires for my f150. Wow. Currently a foot of snow on the roads and these tires are holding their ground. They have amazing traction and this truck with these tires is the only vehicle out there right now that is not struggling. I have hauled a load of 1 ton and these tires barely squatted the truck. They are definitely worth the money and I highly...  Read More

Staggered Tires: Why or Why Not

I had a question from a customer that surprised me the other day. After doing this for as many years as I have, I tend to think that I've heard it all. We were talking about an older BMW, and he asked me if the original tire sizes were staggered. I replied that they were not. His follow-up question was, "Well, why not? It's not like the car is all-wheel...  Read More

With recent snow falls still making news, many of us our reminded that we still have many weeks (and months in some areas) of winter driving left this season. To see if February is still a good time to purchase winter tires, take a look at "Is it Too Late to Buy Winter / Snow Tires?"   The Bridgestone Blizzak WS80, and Michelin X-Ice Xi3 and Bridgestone...  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

How Tough is the New BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2?

Tough enough to drop from an airplane! To demonstrate the enhanced toughness of their new All-Terrain T/A KO2, BFGoodrich mounted them on wheels and dropped them from the sky. With the majority of all-terrain tires' punctures happening in the sidewall area, BFGoodrich paid special attention to reinforcing the sidewalls with technology from their off-road...  Read More

Introducing the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

BFGoodrich has been a leader in all-terrain technology for many years. When they introduced the All-Terrain T/A KO back in 1997, they upturned the all-terrain category with a tire that provided awesome traction, a clean look, a nice ride and iron-like wear. Sounds tough to beat, right? It was, until BFGoodrich had an ace up their sleeves with the...  Read More
