Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I purchased these Pirada SpecX's for my 2003 Murano solely based on the reviews I read here. I bought this vehicle new and they came stocked with Goodyear Eagles. Ride and traction and wear was average. I replaced them with a set of Michelins from Costco Tire. Wear and traction again average. The ride, not so much. They turned my SE into the ride of a pickup...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler AT/S

The ratings for this tire needs to be taken with a grain of salt. To be honest, they were great when new. Did very well in all conditions and for not being a winter rated tire, fairly well in the snow. With that being said, at about 20k the wet traction dropped of extremely fast. It rapidly becomes prone to hydroplaning and sliding. I found it to be the most...  Read More

Worried About How Your New 2016 - 2017 Chevy Camaro Will Do in the Snow? Relax, We Got Your Back!

Having a fun sporty car used to mean that you also needed a second car to handle the winter months. This is no longer the case as modern traction control systems and ever improving winter tires mean the fun doesn't have to stop when the snow falls. For example, you have a 2016 Camaro and we have several tire and wheel options to get you through the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Purchased 4 of these in April '16. I drive as a courier up and down the east coast usually averaging 8K-10K miles a month so I go through some tires pretty quickly. This was the first set of tires I have bought for a Prius. I have always bought performance Goodyear tires in the past when I was buying for Crown Vic ex-police vehicles I used in my business. I...  Read More

Ready or Not Winter 2017 is Coming

Last winter definitely started out slowly, but eventually January came round and winter got serious. Are you living in the snowbelt and wondering how bad the winter of 2017 is going to be? Nobody really knows, but we do know it's coming. Do you need to run winter / snow tires? If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow, you should...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Anyone that drives a CR-V knows that it needs quiet tires to be a quiet vehicle. That said, I have tried three different brands on my CR-V over the years and the Michelin Defenders are by far the quietest of all of them. The Goodyear Assurance tires were awful. They rode horribly and had a constant moaning sound that drove me crazy. I then tried Yokohama...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

Purchased these tires because I wanted a great all around tire for the Northwest where we get a lot of rain and a little snow. I wanted a quiet tire that performed well. I previously had the Goodyear Tripletreds and they provided amazing traction but were a pretty noisy. After reading reviews I went with the General Altimax rt43 which was made in America for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

I bought these tires in November to replace some worn out goodyear rs-a that came on the car when I bought it. I have owned several different uhpas tires, including Dunlop (can't remember which ones), Falken 912, Falken 512,etc. These are by far the best I've driven. They're quieter than I expected. More comfortable by far than the goodyears. Better at...  Read More

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

After reading dozens of reviews of this tire, by far the most accurate was posted on 4/5/2016 from the owner of a Lexus GS 350. That review is exactly the way I feel about my G37x sedan, which is a dynamically similar sports sedan. This tire lives up to the high marks for a smooth, quiet ride and great traction. It's an excellent choice for most cars, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

Just put these on, other than some impact harshness (45 series) they're ---- impressive for the money, quiet and smooth. They balanced perfectly which is more than I can say for the OE Firestone Firehawk GT. I wanted the Eagle Sports but read reviews about balance/ride disturbance issues (typical Goodyear). Steering response off center is a but slow, but I'm...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Put these on my VW Touareg because the Goodyear LS that were OEM skated all over the place on water and ice/snow. Blizzaks have been excellent. I drive in a city where streets are plowed instantly so no big deal, but also a lot of driving into Indiana and Michigan along the snow and ice along the western lake shore and its scary treacherous at times. Drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I just turned over 40K on a set of duratracs for my F150. I am very impressed. I would estimate I have another 10-15K left on this set. They are getting bit loud as expected for an agressive AT tire with some wear.Snow traction is awesome. I can back up my driveway (which is on a hill) in 2wd. I couldn't do that with the stockers. I read alot of reviews...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Cargo G26

The first set of tires were factory installed on this Sprinter 15 wheels and lasted a little over 100K with no additional balancing or rotation. I finally fixed the front right camber problem and now my mileage and steering is very nice. I expect these new tires to go over 110K; maybe 115K. Keep track of tire pressure for the season, front bearings in good...  Read More

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

Got these tires for my 4runner, which I drive probably 90% on the highway, and I drive them very hard both on and off road. Right now at 15,000 miles in they still have 50% tread and are still running smooth. They were a little difficult to balance at first but when balanced well they are very smooth. They handle everything I could throw at them amazingly....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I had my mind made up on buying a set of BF Goodrich all terrain ta/ko's when I came across the wrangler dura trac. I like the aggressive look of the dura trac, a number of the reviews I read people commented that they had the ta/ko's before and liked the dura trac better and the dura trac was priced better. I have only had the new tires about 3000 miles and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

This is my 2nd set of these tires, my 1st set was on a 98 Tacoma and I got a little over 100k out of those tires. So I bought a new Tundra and drove straight to Good Year and had the BFG's taken off and had a new set of Duratrac's put on and it changed the dynamics of the truck during corning, and felt more stable on the highway. I currently have 97k on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture AT51

Ok, I spent hours reading reviews about tires and what to put on our Jeep. I wanted something that could handle our Colorado mountain roads in the winter time along with something that could get us to a trail head in the summer time with getting a flat. It would be a bonus if tires also had a smooth ride and quiet as this is the family vehicle. So far I only...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor

Second set of Wrangler S-A tires on a Tacoma. 1st set (P265/70/R16) on '03 Tacoma DblCab 4x4 OffRoad lasted 90,000 miles (six years). No leaks/flats/problems or complaints. When replaced, still had 1/8 inch tread left but started to show dry rot/UV cracks, were hard as rock). Replaced them with Firestone Destination A/T. Firestones were quiet, soft-riding,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

I will review again after winter but wanted to submit my initial impressions. Wow! If you have the F250 or F350 diesel you need this tire. It blows the OEM tire out of the water. I changed the OEM to a Cooper AT at less than 20K because it was worthless in the snow and ice. The cooper was somewhat better if I kept enough weight in the bed but it wore out...  Read More
