Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring

I bought these tires to replace OEM Goodyear Eagle LS2s. I immediatly noticed dramatic improvements in ride noise, ride quality and cornering stability. Can a tire be quieter, smoother and still outcorner its OEM predecessor? Absolutely. These tires are whisper-quiet and have a good dampening effect over rough surfaces. This is my second set: We are well...  Read More

Best All-Terrain Tire Choices for 275/55R20 Size

Not too long ago, 20-inch tires were rare, exotic and mostly reserved for high-end European SUVs or show vehicles gracing the cover of automobile magazines. Those that were available were ultra high performance tires, often with little to no all-season traction and wore very quickly. This is not the case today. In fact, 20" tires are an option on many...  Read More

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

I previously owned two sets of 245/45ZR-20 Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires on this car so my review will be these 245/45R-20 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. F1 tires are very responsive and grippy on dry surface, but were very noisy, tread life is only lasts 17K miles, and have zero traction on light snow or ice. i was skeptical of P7s when doing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT SUV

HEAVY SNOWS THIS YEAR IN NEW ENGLAND 2013 AND WOULD VENTURE ANYWHERE WITH THESE TIRES.I THOUGHT FIRESTONE WINTERFORCE TIRES I BOUGHT FOR MY AWD V8 MOUNTAINEER LAST YEAR WERE EXCELLENT BUT MY V8 EXPLORER SEEMS TO HAVE A LEG UP WITH THE GOODYEAR SNOW & ICE WRT'S. TWO FOOT SNOW DRIFTS IN 4WD HIGH AND 6-8 INCHES OF UNCLEARED SNOW OR ICE WILL NOT STOP VEHICLE. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SR-A

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...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber UHP

In the past I have run Goodyear, BF Goodrich and Michelin Tires on my SUVs. This tire is far superior to the others with respect to wet traction and hydroplaning in standing water, which living in Florida during the rainy season one encounters on sometimes a daily basis. I got approximately 42000 miles off my last set, never rotated them because they all...  Read More

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

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...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance CS TripleTred All-Season

Nice tire, needed something better in the snow than the michelin's. Really impressed with its performance in the snow, it is louder than the michelin's and maybe rides a bit harder. I cannot speak to its longevity, or traction loss over time, but early signs are it is a great tire if you need an allseason with more traction for a light SUV/truck   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S

Put a set of these on my 1999 Tahoe at 125,620 miles after only getting about 60,000 miles out of a set of Goodyear Forteras. Dealer told me I would not regret it. I just turned 229,485 on my Tahoe and there is STILL no end in sight for these tires. Tires rotated every 6K min, sometimes every oil change. That is the key. Not sure when these are going to wear...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

Perhaps the best set of tires I've had on an SUV. Yesterday was this first I've had them out in any type of snow or slippery conditions and I must say I am impressed. They seemed very good in the snow and slush and refrozen ice on the roads. I was able to engage the antilock brakes but only because I was actually trying; under normal driving I doubt the ABS...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity

My preferred repair shop convinced me to buy these tires more than two years ago when the OE tires were done (Goodyear or Michelin), and I agreed after reading many positive reviews on Tirerack. The improvement in handling on dry and wet surfaces was immediately noticable and remained that way through the life of the tire. I have since put Bridgestones on my...  Read More
