All Hail the King: Bridgestone's Blizzak DM-V2 Impresses on the Ice

With a four-wheel drive truck or SUV, you have a notable advantage accelerating in slippery conditions when compared to most passenger cars. However, even the most capable all-wheel drive vehicles shod with all-season tires will find difficulty compared to two-wheel drive passenger vehicles equipped with dedicated winter / snow tires. If you want the absolute...  Read More

All-New Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 vs Blizzak DM-V1

Bridgestone winter / snow tires are renowned for their outstanding winter traction. For many years, the Blizzak DM-V1 topped the list of best Studless Ice & Snow tires for light trucks, SUVs and crossover vehicles. Its combination of great snow traction, ice traction, wet grip and durability made it the most recommended tire in the category since its...  Read More

Introducing Bridgestone's Blizzak DM-V2: The Tire to Beat for Winter 2015?

For the past several years the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 has been our highest consumer rated tire among a strong field of competitors in the Studless Ice & Snow (Light Truck) market. While it seems illogical to discontinue such a well liked product, history has proved that the Blizzak line of tires seem to evolve and rarely, if ever, take a step back....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SR-A

This was the OE tire that came on the truck. The ride is smooth and quiet for a 4X4 truck. Wet traction is very good and snow traction is good for a tire that is only rated for light snow. I will admit the the tread life is poor, but the truck can corner at higher speeds than my old 2002 F-150. I noticed the front tires had severe feathering on the outer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

During this summer, I bought a set of winter rims and tires through Tire Rack for my 2013 Acura TL SH-AWD. I live in MN and All season tires don't cut it. Furthermore using winter rims really keep your stock rims sharp far longer (sand & salt issues).So in the past I have purchased multiple sets of Blizzaks which have been excellent in all winter conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

I am writing this review as I'm purchasing my second set of P Neros from Tire Rack. First of all, there should be a category above Spirited for the type of driver I am. To make matters worse for my tires, I live in the Appalachian mountains so curvy roads with inconsistent pavement mean my tires don't last long. The hard cornering & braking that mountain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial Long Trail T/A

These are the tires that came on the truck when I bought it new, and I will let the mileage say enough about durability. Even after multiple repairs from running over nails, screws, and a chunk of wood, these tires have lasted well. Only recently (past year) have I noticed significant deterioration in performance on wet pavement from when I first drove on...  Read More

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

Just replaced the OEM Firestone FR710 tires after approx 60K miles. The OEM's were downright dangerous in any standing water at any speed > 50mph but they were quiet and provided good gas mileage. In snow, forget it, I just tried to avoid driving. Being an old guy I'm just interested in safety, comfort/quiet and good gas mileage. The only spirited driving I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

The OEM tire on our Equinox. They are great! Why can't all new cars come with good tires like these??? The car before this one came with trash Goodyears ('13 Spark), and my truck I just got has even worse tires, also Goodyears ('15 Ram 1500). 14k miles and they still look brand new. This is great as we put a lot of miles on our vehicles. They might not start...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

My 2013 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite came with Michelin Primacy MXV4s. I've been a long time Michelin fan and have had experience with these tires on my old Accord. They are great passenger touring tires, and I can see why Honda would put them on their top of the line van. The MXV4s are very smooth and nice riding touring tires for cars. On a heavy Van/SUV...  Read More

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

These were OEM for my 2010 Sequioa Limited. Bridgestones were not my first choice but I ended up replacing the originals with another set of Bridgestones earlier this month (July 2015). I think Bridgestone makes an excellent tire and I got great mileage and service from the originals. But I wanted to replace them with a set of Continentals. I can't complain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I have these Michelin Premier LTX on our Mercedes GL350 and decided to purchase for my new Ram 1500 Sport 4X4 Crew. I am not disappointed! It drives like it is a different truck! Great handling, smooth and quiet ride, and overall just a much better drive than the standard Goodyear Wrangler SR-A tires that came with the truck. Will update in the future on how...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A

Truck came with 245/75/16 but went up to 265/70/16 and I have no complaints. Dry traction for these BFG's is amazing. Wet on the other hand is alright but then again its a truck so its light in the back and its just gonna spin sometimes. Off-road traction is fine, not perfect not awful, gets the job done. Overall, these tires look amazing, the sidewall has a...  Read More

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

Great all around performer. Smooth, quiet ride, nice stiff sidewalls makes my truck ride all around much better. Stock Dunlops were a joke in comparison. Great in winter conditions. Snow flake rating and new compound deffinately is no lye. Alberta winter conditions are no problem for this tire so far.Brand new tire so I can't comment on wear yet. Overall...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I used to swear by BFGs, I had a set of Long Trail TA's years ago and they were some of the best I had ever had. But they changed something, the next set that I bought only lasted about 30,000 miles and handled like ----.So I went on the hunt for my next tire. Tried the brand new BFG Rugged Terrains, after my stock Generals wore out, they were ok, but lacked...  Read More
