Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

These have been excellent in very deep snow off road. Off road in mud dirt sand rocks etc. are amazing for a streetable tire. Iced over roads not so great, they are not as good as a dedicated winter tire on glazed over roads but they do tend to have problems gripping the polished ice. I have never had a problem with noise but you do know that they are there...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor

I bought these tires after having 255/55/18 michelin mxv4 tires on. These goodyear silent armors have my range rover a more aggressive look and have me more confidence when driving in any condition whether it be sand, mud, gravel and deep snow. Love these tires would recommend it to anybody.   Read More

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

These tires performed very well in all Wisconsin seasons, including snow. I ran these tires on my Sienna and Taurus concurrently and was pleased with the winter performance on both vehicles. I am now shopping for tires for both vehicles and will not put these on again simply due to noise. Very, very loud tire, especially as the tread wears down.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

These are great tires I'll be purchasing them again someday, still half tread with 30,000 miles on them probably could have more if I wasn't so harsh on them. I noticed significant gains in cornering and straight line dry traction and a slight gain in wet conditions over cheap Goodyears. Very quiet ride I can't even hear them at 90. Not very good in ice but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

OK, so I haven't put enough miles on these yet to determine treadwear and snow performance. All I can say is that, so far, these tires have been a major improvement over the OEM tires. Perfect for a Tundra 4 door with my type of usage. More importantly, I wanted to weigh in on the excelling value of user reviews in making a good decision on new tires. My...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Great performance and even tire wear. I got over 40,000 on this tire. Better than Goodyear (OEM), Bridgestone, Dunlop costing more. For the dollar, this Hankook is the best overall value   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

Sidewall gives a little while cornering or higher g-load off ramp speeds, but overall I am very pleased with this set of tires. Far superior in all weather conditions to date compared to my last set of Goodyear.   Read More

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

I just recently installed the BFG KO2's on my 2011 Ford F-150 5.0. So far I pretty much have nothing but good things to say about this tire. I'm pretty easy-going in my driving, so I haven't really push these tires to their limits on or off R so I haven't really push these tires to their limits on or off road. The three immediate differences that I noticed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

Got these tires based on reviews from others and comparable price. I really wanted to get the Bridgestone Revo ATs which I previously had on my 2000 Jeep Cherokee and performed exceptionally well on that vehicle. I could not get a decent price on the Revos so I thought I'd give the Geolander ATS a try. It was during the recent snow storm in Michigan over...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

Truck came with Goodyears, couldn't wait to get rid of them I could barley pull my boat out of the water. Bought these and ran them for 60K. I have nothing bad to say about these tires. After they wore out I decided to buy Sumitomos (cost was a factor). WHAT A MISTAKE! 18K on them and they're toast! Almost killed myself in the rain, and to pull my boat out,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

These tires are so much better than the OE Goodyears. Much quieter, better ride, better traction, everything. I'm not afraid to brake late on a corner because I'm confident the car will stick. These tires have put the enjoyment back into driving my Vette!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (V-Speed Rated)

These tires offer a good balance between performance & economy. I use snow tires for winter driving, so these will be used for summer driving. I drive nearly 20k miles/year, 8-9k miles/summer. I need tires that will last at least 4 summers, but I like to drive and want good performance too. These Goodyears fit the bill. Dry handling is very good, though not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred

I replaced the OEM Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max with these tires. I know it's a small sample size as far as miles goes, and I have not driven with them in the Winter, but so far they have been an extremely nice tire. It's kind of hard to compare a new set of tires to a set that had over 55,000 miles because almost any tire you put on will handle better, ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

Just broke in my new Michelin tires on a 1000 mile trip from VA to PA and back and they performed great! They handled excellent on the highway (dry and wet conditions). Going 80+ in heavy downpour these tires kept me in constant contact with the road. Never once, in about a 20 minute stretch of heavy rain, did the tires lose traction with the road! Dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle GT (V-Speed Rated)

An excellent tire. great cornering ability and a surprising wet weather tire. Goodyear definitely has changed there tire compound over the years as these look like they will be here for the long haul. Tread life is excellent so far.   Read More
