My #FirstCarMoment

Michelin's new campaign has us going down memory lane to the time we got our first car. Whether it was handed down to you by your parents, or you worked a few jobs to earn it, none of us will forget the feeling of owning our first car. I got my first Jeep as a Christmas present back when I was in college and home visiting my parents. It was Christmas morning...  Read More

Michelin's LTX M/S2 Tire Takes Top Spot in Tire Reviews and Ratings

Back in 2011, the "Michelin LTX M/S Tires Replaced by New LTX M/S2" post was introduced to let people know about the new Michelin LTX M/S2. Fast forward a few years and we can see that this great tire is the top-ranked option in our customer survey and reviews in the Highway All-Season category.   Take a look at what our customers have been saying about the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

My first review of a Jeep tire. Wow. Just a great reality tire for off road and on road with no real noise, great wear, and great snow traction. I plan to buy again.It took about 300 miles to break them in (molding or whatever), but even in the -15F week we had last winter they remained super soft and compliant. Their only possible weakness is I think they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar I/T G072

I have 4 of these dedicated snow tires on my '08 Subaru Tribeca whenmost of my contemporaries run All Season tires. I have a very short steep driveway and live in the southern Allegheny region of Central Pennsylvania. My driveway also has a northern exposure so it does not melt as quickly as someof my neighbors driveways do. i have great confidence in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2

My 35 mud terrains are used on my Jeep JK daily with a couple times a year doing light off road driving and they are great. With 42K on them I'll probably get another 10 to 15K on them. As far as noise they weren't very loud at first but have gotten louder, but louder is cool.:) With proper rotations and running the proper air pressure (28psi is what I run)...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T RH-S

This tire was phenomenal. I'm now replacing them at 94,000 miles, but they still have plenty of wear left on them. I'm wanting to sell the Jeep but I don't want to do so with tires that old and I do need to replace the shocks as well. I did rotate them at least a couple of times.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I did a lot of research seeking tires for my Jeep as I didn't want to get a non-standard size and/or put a lift kit on the vehicle. The original tires only lasted about 38K miles, so I didn't want to get them again. I also didn't want a car-looking tire. I decided on these and I am so happy I did. They are surprisingly quiet for the type of tire it is. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

The Destination AT has great on road manners in both dry and wet, is very quiet so far and plows through snow with ease. Off road I use my modified FZJ80 Land Cruiser mostly on sandy beaches where this tire seems about perfect. The right combination between closed and open tread to make it float on top of the loose sand, yet open enough to dig in a bit when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I have the 31x10.5x15 on my stock 2004 Jeep Wrangler 4.0. They replaced the stock Goodyear wrangler SR-A tires. These were put on right before a snowstorm that dumped 10 of snow and they handled it perfectly. I had it in two wheel drive to test how they handled and in normal driving w/ about 3 of unplowed snow on the roads I had to really push it to get the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

This is most likely the best all around tire for a Jeep Wrangler. There are better mud tires, but I am very happy with the performance of this tire under the sleet/icy conditions in Dallas over the last few weeks. For people from the snowbelt reading this review, we really don't clear the roads in Dallas. Most of the streets will become packed sleet/snow,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

OEM tire on my Jeep. Not a bad tire, had little to complain about. Snow traction wasn't the best, but I don't see much snow where I live. Had to replace at 58,500 miles. Somewhat disappointed as the warranty is for 65,000 miles (went with a different brand). However, almost 60k on a set of tires for an AWD vehicle isn't bad.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

This tire was previously highest ranked for my Jeep and is why I bought a set. I have been extremely pleased, am about to roll over 50k on this set and they are barely worn at all. They're great on the road, excellent when I get to play off road, and have handled several winters in the North Carolina mountains as well as trips to northern New York. Plus,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SR-A

I was very confused to see such bad reviews of this tire. they are stock tires still on my jeep with proper service and even at 58k miles there is still 6/32nds left. we drive in northwest Indiana with erratic weather. and constant lake affect snow. we have ben through many days of snow falls and blizzards with this tire. not sure hot they do off road but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

my old bfg ko in same size had over 60,000 and not good for another winter. I didnt like the wet road performance and hydoplaning. but did love the tire life and off road strengths. the gt at2 had the bow tie tread and good reviews and was cheaper. On road the at2 is quieter, handles better and doesnt hydoplane. winter ice and snow was better too, although...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination M/T

I have had the FS Destination MT on my Jeep for 5 years at approx 30-40K miles. I have nothing but good things to say about these tires. Being in the military I travel every three years. I purchased in Northern Michigan, near the UP. Lots of off roading and winter driving. With a fully packed Jeep, I drove from Northern Michigan to Alaska. Ran the ALCAN....  Read More

New Method Roost Wheel is a Great Fit for Jeep Wrangler

In a previous post, "Jeep Wrangler Wheels and Tires", we discussed using 17x9" aftermarket wheels with -12mm offset, which is about 4.5" backspacing on a Jeep Wrangler. That sizing, for many people, is the magic combination to fit 33" or 35" tires on the Jeep JK. I was in that same mindset, but when I saw the new Method Roost wheels we're getting in, I knew...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2

Excellent off road, have used off road in everything except sand so not sure about that. Good tough tire, good price, an almost no road noise. My jeep JK is our third car so not a lot of highway miles. My only concern is tire wear. I don't think they will wear good maybe 25000 miles but for me that's about 6-7 years so I'm good with that.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T RH-S

These tires came on my new 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. In 2 1/2 years, I have hit 60,000 miles and these tires still do not need replacing. The tread depth is still good. I have had no issues with these tires. I drive on city, highway and dirt roads every day and they handle great! When I do need to replace them, I am only going to replace them with the OEM...  Read More

Big Savings on Big Snow Tires

If you have a lifted 4x4 truck, Jeep or SUV with 35" mud tires, you may think you're ready for the worst conditions, but you're not. Four-wheel drive will obviously help you accelerate and ground clearance will help with deeper snow, however your mud tires are holding you back.  In order to have great snow grip, a tire must have the right compound, and...  Read More
