Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Fortera HL Edition

My new Grand Cherokee Summit came equipped with the Fortera HL. I have had years of Goodyear tire experience on SUV's. Performance has always been good across their wide range of treads. Tread life has generally been not so good across the Goodyear brand. The Fortera HL so far is much better. I notice no tread wear at all to date.I had the vehicle since...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

These tires met and exceeded all reasonable expectations over the Winter past which saw a much higher than normal amount of snow on the roads from hard snow pack to iced intersections, deep new fallen heavy snow (wet & dry) and extreme cold where road salt was entirely ineffective. All-in-all it was a bitter, long and snowy season best forgotten but...  Read More

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

Replaced these for the stock wheels on my used 2009 Saturn Vue initially. Now buying another set for the harsh NY winter. Couldn't believe the traction in snow. My travels to work from home involve uphill at night & downhill in the morning. I'd never buy another tire for my SUV. Great tires for Spring through Fall also.   Read More

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

Have had Ultra Grip WRT SUV studded tires for two winters on 4 wheel drive Yukon. My summer tires are the Michelin MS2 which I leave on until the first snow fall. Noticeable difference when I put the snow tires on, especially on ice. The only time I have been caught off guard is when fresh snow is on top of ice, the studs can't reach through when on loose...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

I purchased a 2013 Ford Explorer 4x4 in December 2012. It came with Michelin Latitude Touring tires 245/60R-18. These are probably the worse tires to put on an SUV and after reading a lot of reviews possibly any car. I went through two Cleveland winters with them and refused to take on another. I consider these Michelins to be absolutely treacherous in snow...  Read More

Got these due to moving to Denver from Washington DC...all seasons were getting worn, so saving them for spring/summer driving and got these for fall/winter. So glad we did.

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.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek AT20

I don't understand why this tire gets bad reviews. They are standard on my 4Runner, and were on my 2004 4Runner. I was going to switch for the (In my opinion) best SUV tire made, the Goodyear Silent Armour, however after a few miles I decided to wait until a replacement is needed. The recent heavy rain in CA was no problem, I have been to the snow twice, and...  Read More

We live up in the mountains of Colorado at 8200 feet and average around 150 inches of snow per winter, sometimes up to 2 feet at a time. We also live off a dirt road, and have an access road to our home that switchbacks up the side of the canyon, and can be quite steep. I have literally slid down that road with all-season tires on my AWD Subaru Forester....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

Good all around SUV tire, no complaints. Not a very sporty tire, but my other car is, and these are a good compromise for this vehicle. The vehicle this replaced had Bridgestone Dueler Alenzas, which I also liked, and which I first considered for this vehicle when replacing tires. The Ecopia offers the same performance as far as I can tell with a nice fuel...  Read More

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.

In fact, 20" tires are an option on many...  Read More
