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

Is the General AltiMAX Arctic the Best Studdable Winter / Snow Tire?

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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

These tires have completely changed my Tacoma's personality! The original Bridgestone tires were garbage, and the replacement General Grabbers were a huge improvement, especially in snow driving. The Tacoma is known for its noisy, rough ride and the Grabbers didn't change that, nor did I expect them to. When they finally wore out, however, I decided to try...  Read More

Sneak Peek of New Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Since the original Bridgestone¬†Blizzak tire was introduced in 1993, Bridgestone has all but dominated the Studless Ice & Snow performance category with their Blizzak line of winter / snow tires.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber

Put the red letter General Grabbers on my 6 lifted 2012 F150. Noise level is lower compared to Toyo tires I took off of the truck. MPG improved by 2 miles per gallon! That was an unexpected bonus. I use the truck in the Outer Banks of North Carolina for surf fishing and watching the wild horses. In the wet sand, the treads clear themselves great. In the soft...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

It's a great tire and it will not disappoint in any type of environment you can throw at. Road noise is minimal unlike some of the others saying it is loud. These tires make truck feel stable and truck does not wonder the road or feel mushy. I had Goodyear Wrangler SRA's on before which were terrible for handling, getting stuck in my wet front yard among...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

I really liked this tire from the start. Excellent read pattern, my first winter we got more than 4 feet of snow within 2 weeks. My truck was one of few vehicles able to just jam its way into a parking spot on top of a pile of snow. My only regret with these tires is that I should have rotated them religiously, as the shop owner told me when I purchased. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

I haven't had these tires for too awfully long, and they are do for a rotation-- however, no one could tell by looking at them. They still look great, and are wearing evenly (my truck is properly aligned). We had a harsh winter in Ohio last year, and these tires handled it well on my 2wd truck. Throw some sand in the bed and get moving... these were like...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Great tire for a great price . Traction is not an issue even at 20k miles these tires are on a farm truck that gets used everywhere, on and off the road highway and heavy towing. I pull a fully loaded trailer weighing 18k less the truck in and out of fields seasonally and traction is never an issue . Will probably get another 10 -15k out of them before...  Read More

Introducing the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

Within the past year, many consumers were disappointed to learn that the popular Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor they had grown to love had been discontinued. Always well liked for its good road manners and capable all- terrain abilities, many feared the replacement would not live up to its predecessor. Goodyear erased those worries with the introduction of...  Read More
