I'm a fan for life, defiently recommend.

2000 Ford F250, 3" lift. Extended cab, 8' box, topper 8" higher than cab and LOADED with carpentry tools. Unbelievable wear despite weak attempts at rotating. Super Duty has solid front axle and is notorious for being hard on front tires. At 84K, I still have some tread left to use up. Best snow traction I have ever experienced, almost don't need 4wd, but live in MN. Tires are relatively quiet. I had them professionally siped when new, gaining even better ice traction. Some told me siping would cause premature wear, but at 84K, I am elated. Never had a truck tire with decent tread over 50K miles. I run at 85psi always, and truck is always loaded and overloaded. I have overloaded the weight capacity on occasion without issue. I will buy these until they quit making them. The nice part is, with that kind of mileage it won't be too often!

These were the tallest and narrowest tires I could fit in the wheel wells. I have Blizzaks on my wife's GL550 and had Blizzaks my Turbo Cayenne. These tires have a greater tread depth and perform better than the Blizzaks and other snow tires I have used in the past. They are stable and have no issue carrying the weight of the Range Rover when loaded up. We have had great fun in the snow this year with them and I have traveled to the Upper Penisula and Upper Michigan most weekends and they are a screaming deal for the dollars spent.

Initial Review, 13,000 Miles on Tires
February 17, 2014

This tire came as original equipment on my Jeep. I've owned the Jeep for 8 months now and I've waited to do a review. I live in Tacoma, WA. We get lots of rain and varying degrees of snow every year.

I can say that I had some doubts about the OEM tires when I first bought the vehicle. After driving through a few Winter snow storms I can tell you that these are excellent all-around tires. My Jeep is 4WD, so that does help in the snow. The tires have proven to do just fine in the snow, and mild off roading on muddy logging roads in the mountains, gravel roads, etc. I'm not going to go through the hassle and expense of separate snow wheels and tires. These tires do just fine by themselves.

The highway ride is really good and comfortable. Tire are nearly silent when the pavement is smooth. My vehicle wanders slightly at highway speed, but I don't think that is related to the tires. That could be the electro-hydraulic steering, or the alignment could be off slightly. Or it could be that the vehicle naturally follows the "ruts" in the road.

In the rain, I've never experienced any sliding or hydroplaning at speeds up to 70 mph with visible standing water on the road surface. Rain traction is excellent.

After 13k miles, the tires still look nearly new with no obvious signs of wear.

Overall, I'd rate this tire a 9.5 out of 10. It represents excellent value for the 265/50/20 tire size. This tire has had some very negative reviews and I'm not really sure why people are so critical of it. One guy gave it bad ratings for getting flats (???). It's not the tire's fault if you drive over something sharp! For about $134 per tire, I don't think you can go wrong.

I will most likely buy these tires again when it comes time to replace them.

My first ever set of snow tires, I've lived in Michigan my entire life and always thought snow was something you just learned to drive in, tires were less important than your ability to handle conditions. I was wrong, this was the year to learn this lesson, I haven't seen the pavement on my road since December 18th, it snowed 3 more inches this morning, March 1st. These inexpensive tires have turned my old T-bird into a winter driving wonder, I haven't had this much snow fun since I was a teen. Snow tires don't just let you go in the snow, you can turn and stop also. Experimentinig in places I know to always be slippery, I could slamm on the brakes and it just stopped, Ican't say it's like driving on dry pavement but it sure is confidence inspiring. It makes winter driving feel safer. I will never go a winter without again.

Follow up from my last post. Great tires. Light snow traction is actually good. Suprised actually. As all my other "all-season" ultra high performance tires weren't that great in snow except the Continental DWS. These are like them in the snow and much better than them in the corners.

These are outstanding tires that I would highly recommend for so owners. Although these are not winter tires they performed flawlessly when traveling in a wicked snow storm,even passing stuck salt trucks on terrible roads. Much quieter than OE Michelin tires. Wet traction, snow, dry are also much improved. Can't comment on wear but they are outstanding tires WAY better than OE set that only lasted for 13000 miles and were down to 2/32 tread depth. I loved the look on peoples faces as they struggled with there 4wd vehicles to get around in snow as I pass them! Must have for northeast winters if all you want to run is all season tires.

So I drive for work, and have put about 10k miles on these tires so far. I have done no less than seven 100 mile+ trips through snow storms so far with these tires and am thoroughly impressed. My car is very light (235 width) and a light 1.6L Ecoboost motor. My car handles tenfold better than it did with the stock Michelin energy. The only thing i'd say is you can feel more road imperfections over the stock Michelins. But, I've had no vibrations at all with these tires even when it was neg 9 here. Dry traction and cornering is fantastic! Wet traction is great. Snow and Ice traction is impressive, even during braking. Take off isn't the best, but that's more due to the vehicle itself. Going between 40-50 on the highway with DEEP snow is what impresses me the most with these tires. They're no snow tire, but I would recommend them to anyone who has to deal with all four seasons. So far the tread is down to 9/32. It looks like I will get 40-50k miles on these tires

So I just bought this car and I needed winter tires badly, and I had them studded for extra peace of mind when I came here to tire rack and bought a winter tire package with steel wheels as these are just for winter and don't need fancy wheels covered in snow and crap all winter. I installed these very recently and first impression were good from the looks in person. I took them for a drive as soon as I installed them with our roads being completely covered in packed snow on plowed roads and 4-7 inches of powder on unplowed roads. We have recently received 18 inches of snow in the last 3 days and these tires take it all on without issue. The only time I had to slow down was when the front bumper was hitting the fresh powder on the roads (6 inches deep powder) and was blowing up and covering my windshield and I couldn't see. I stopped several times on snow covered hills and my car just walked op the hill without issue. Being located in Watertown, NY we get a lot of lake effect snow and it can hit at a moments notice and I spent the most part of my day testing theses tires out. Stopping was easily done as long as you don't just mash on the brakes as to be expected with any tire the ABS kicked in but still stopped controllably. Deep snow wasn't an issue, some icy roads are easily manageable, packed snow covered roads were a cinch and I really enjoyed driving in the fowl weather with these tires. No white knuckles for this guy just ease of travel as I was back to feeling safe and confident behind the wheel with these shoes on the car. Now my car has quite a bit of torque for a Front Wheel Drive vehicle that I was concerned about but the traction control worked well and the tires gripped well. These tires were cheapest offered for my car and I was skeptical as I usually go for blizzaks but these I think perform at the same level easily. I would buy these again without worry and knowing they are lower priced than the other competitors just made it easy to choose

Though have not driven enough to comment on some conditions or tread-wear they are stable and quiet and responsive, and seem to be better on coasting i.e. rolling resistance. They are a little-more SUV-like than previous tires I've had on this Wrangler but I have driven them extensively in rain and snow and they were fine even in RWD. When I finally needed 4WD they were great. I kept pushing into deep snow until finally I couldn't move but only when the Jeep was in snow up to its undercarriage. Would definitely buy again. There seemed to be some not-so-great reviews. I corner aggressively and enjoy driving in rain and snow and these tires have been super.

A couple of months ago we put a set of these tires on our 2005 Acura TL and these tires perform great. We live in Green Bay Wisconsin and deal with a great variety of weather conditions. This past weekend we took a road trip over to the Twin Cities of Minnesota and the roads were covered with snow and ice. Needless to say, I couldn't have asked for these tires to perform any better that what they did. I am not one for writing reviews but I want to give a kudos to Goodyear - thank you. The only only downside is that they may be a little louder than average - but it wouldn't prevent me from buying these tires again.

Bought a whole new set of these tires for my 02 maxima. I also bought a new set of stock wheels. this way everything would be new and i would have no issues. these tires are great and i have no complaints. they look great and do exactly whats needed. im not a speed demon. although i will get on the car sometimes, these tires give me no issues. great in water and snow (only light snow so far). ive read some reviews that say these tires are loud. but in my opinion they are not louder than any other tire ive ever had. the stock tire that comes with my car is around 285 bucks. thats insane. i used to have a set of goodyear eagle gt's. good tire as well but they cost almost 50 bucks more a piece. this tire is around 100 bucks and i think for that price you get a great deal. no slipping. good grip wet or dry. braking feels fine. if i have anything negative to report about in the future i will update.

I drive a 97 Grand Cherokee ZJ with 4" of lift and installed these tires in a 31x10.50x15 size. They've exceeded my expectations in every respect. They're quite for an aggressive tread pattern on the highway, handle well for the tread pattern in highway driving, and perform excellently off road. I primarily use my Jeep for off road use but it does drive upwards of 200 highway miles one way to different parks. I've also used it to travel to work when the weather is too bad to travel in my other vehicle. They handle very well in the snow, packed or deep, and even do well on ice. For a tire that's not a mud terrain tire, they do surprisingly well in the mud but I wouldn't say it's a replacement for a traditional mud terrain. I haven't had them in sand so I cannot comment on their sand capabilities. I only have about 5k miles on them so far but they seem to be wearing well and evenly, if they're even wearing at all yet. I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a good all around tire for a vehicle that sees a multitude of uses. I'll most definitely be purchasing another set when the time comes.

Best Replacement Tires for the Honda Odyssey

Thursday, February 27, 2014 by Zig Ziegler

When shopping for tires for the Honda Odyssey most customers tend to look for tires that are quiet, comfortable riding and provide good traction in snow and on ice. Because of the large open space inside the cabin of the minivan, road noise is always an issue. Choosing the right tire can really make a big difference.

A few great options to consider when replacing tires on your Honda Odyssey include the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring, Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology and Firestone's Precision Touring. All three provide the best blend of ride/noise comfort, all-season traction and price.

 Goodyear Assurance ComorTred Touring
Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring
 Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology
Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology
 Firestone Precision Touring
Firestone Precision Touring


Goodyear's Assurance ComforTred Touring features a mildly asymmetric tread design that combines independent shoulder blocks with notched intermediate and center ribs to blend dry and wet road traction and handling. Four wide circumferential grooves evacuate water from under the tread to enhance wet traction while the tread grooves, notches and sipes form biting edges to deliver all-season traction in light snow.

The tire's internal construction includes a super shock absorbent Comfort Layer of rubber sandwiched between the tread and steel belts to insulate vibration and impacts with expansion joints, potholes and bumps. It also features Goodyear's dual-layer ComfortEdge sidewall supports to provide a balance of ride comfort and handling.

CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology tires from Continental use an all-season tread compound featuring their Tg-F Polymers and +Silane additives to improve treadwear, fuel efficiency and traction on slippery roads. The compound is molded into a symmetric tread design with notched outboard shoulders, independent intermediate tread blocks and continuous center ribs to blend on-road steering response and straight-line stability with reduced noise and enhanced ride comfort. All sizes of the CrossContact LX20 come with a flanged lower sidewall to help reduce the possibility of curb damage to expensive wheels.

The Precision Touring is Firestone's Standard Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of coupes, sedans, family minivans and crossover vehicles looking for year-round capability and comfort. Affordably priced, the tire is designed to blend long treadwear, a quiet ride and all-season traction on dry and wet roads, as well as in light snow.

Precision Touring tires mold a silica-enhanced all-season tread compound into a symmetric design featuring wide shoulders flanking interlocking ribs to provide dry road response and handling. Four circumferential grooves help guide water through the tire's footprint for wet traction while multiple notches and sipes provide the biting edges to enhance traction in light snow. The tire's structure includes twin, high tensile steel belts on top of a polyester casing to deliver strength, ride quality and handling.

Be sure to check out our test results and customer survey reviews to help you make a decision on what tire is best for how and where you drive.

This is my first set of Goodyear tires in a very long time. I have been running winter tire/summer tire combo for 14 years now. I've had Dunlop Graspics, Hankook Icebears for the past 5 years, Firestones witerfire, and so far these have been the best so far. My Abs hardly comes on compared to running on an all season tire. I would pass 4x4 and all wheel drive cars. I've gone by people stuck up hills and I just keep on trucking. I travel the PA turnpike and local roads to work and these tires haven't let me down. Pennsylvania has been hit hard with snow and these tires have been very good to me. Especially for the cost.

First reaction to these tires was, why is my car so much quieter? Apparently the OE Goodyear tires contributed more noise than I realized. Ride conform was also noticeably improved. If this were the only reason I purchased these tires, then this would be enough. But I was even more impressed with winter driving experience as I drove immediately to northern Michigan for the Sno*Drift rally which lead me down many snow and ice covered two track roads, which it handled with ease. Temps were in the low single digits and below zero and traction in snow or on pavement was excellent. The return trip south on expressway, I was able to use the snow covered left lane with confidence. At this early stage of ownership, very happy. Looking forward to judge performance on dry roads in warmer weather.

Recently purchased these tires to replace the factory Michelen tires. I have noticed an immediate reduction in road noise with these tires, and the comfort over pot marked roads has been a great improvement. Today, in Columbus Ohio (2-5-14) we received 6" of snow with a layer of ice over top of it over night. The tires handled it with an amazing amount of ease. Almost zero wheel spin while driving back roads over ice covered roads from the plows, as well as areas the plow missed and my car became the plow. Highway driving over somewhat plowed roads meant lane changes over slush, ice and snow at 30 - 40 mph and I had no issues. Was passing SUV after SUV this morning. Only incident I have had was I hit a rather large pot hole and blew the tire out. I do not think that the tire itself had anything to do with it, as much as it was in regards to the road conditions and the tire size is a low profile tire and they just can't handle impact like that. I would recommend this tire to anyone. I have had Goodyears, Michelen's , etc before and this has been my most remarkable tire to date.
