Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/T D687

I had to write this review because of all the negative reviews out there. These tires came with my Subaru Forester when I bought the car new in 2010. I have 89000 miles on them and there is still tread left. I have no complaints. I do check air pressure every month or two. I have gotten my tires rotated probably like every 15,000 miles. I have had one wheel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These tires were the 6th set and the longest lasting ones that I have had on my 2006 Honda Civic EX...they lasted 42,800 miles. The front tires could last me until winter, but I am going to go ahead and replace all four now since there is a $70 rebate. Previous tires have lasted 24,000-32,000. Civics are notorious for chewing up the rear tires due to issues...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek AT20

I'm gonna keep it short. I made 57K on these tires and I can't say anything bad. I live in Illinois so the weather here is unpredictable sometimes. I was surprised how well this tire performed in snow (All 4 wheel driving mode)The treadwear is 300 low but it helps out in winter. If you're more on the racing side this tire will wear out a lot quicker. Im not...  Read More

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

Bridgestone Turanza EL 400 came stock on 2015 Lexus GS 350 F Sport. I knew the tire had an unusually stiff sidewall and was prone to flat spots because cars on the dealer's lot had flat spots when I test drove them. I expected to replace the Bridgestones come winter but the ride was just too harsh and I decided not to wait. These Bridestone tires are not...  Read More

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

Superb tires so far! Much better than the Yokohama Geolander AT's that I had. The Michelin LTX AT are fantastic on the asphalt and trails and provide near sedan-like handling on the road. They are stiffer than my Geolanders were, but that may be because they are new. So far after 5500 miles I can say the LTX AT's are: Great handling on pavement, wet or dry.Ve...  Read More

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

Replaced the original Eagle LS-2's in April 2014 after 38,000 miles with H-rated Altimax HP's. Previous experience with them on two other cars left me impressed with their price-to-performance. A few weeks back, someone (not me ;) ) took out the two right side tires. Since the Altimax is now discontinued, they were replaced with these W-rated G-Max' and put...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-32

Cleveland, Ohio.Switched to dedicated snow tires years ago. I have had 3 cars in that time and every single one was fitted with dedicated wheels with Blizzaks on them. I had the WS70's, and the WS80's on my most recent 2013 Honda Accord. It handled better than most 4 wheel drive Jeeps I know. I recently turned in that lease and will be buying WS80's for my...  Read More

SPC Control Arms for Jeep JK: Part One

I made the mistake of off-roading and not checking the torque on my suspension components afterward, which over time wallowed out the threads on my adjustable rear upper control arms and caused a host of issues with my Jeep. With a lifted Jeep you have to make sure to check the torque on everything after abusing it. Under heavy acceleration, the passenger...  Read More

Go Play in the Dirt with Method Rally Series Wheels

When I attended the DirtFish rally school, I noticed that the wheels on the school's Subaru WRXs were from Method Racing. We carried Method at that time, but did not have those wheels available. Now, less than a year later, here they are. The Rally Series wheels were developed by Method in partnership with Subaru's rally team, combining wheel industry...  Read More

The All-New 2016 Mazda MX-5 Tested on Our Track

The design of the new generation MX-5 has been impressing drivers...  Read More

How about swapping on some custom fit closeout matte graphite 20x10 ET40 Hotckis Y-Sports on Extreme Performance Summer...  Read More

New Lightweight Track Wheel from MOTEGI RACING

Anyone who has spent a Saturday at an autocross event or a road course knows that lighter is better. Lighter is especially better when referring to unsprung weight. Unsprung weight is anything not supported by the suspension of your vehicle such as wheels, tires and brakes. As one of the best bang-for-your-buck upgrades, a set of dedicated lightweight...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

This truck came with Goodyear Wrangler SR-A tires and they treated me well for 100,000 miles. My driving is 60% highway, 35% back country roads, 5% city. I kept them inflated to 40 PSI & got almost 20 mpg all around, experienced very little hydroplaning issues and thought they did very well in the snow, though I admit my lead-foot days are behind me, and I...  Read More

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 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

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

This is an initial review of these tires, I will be doing a follow up review once I put more miles on them. They replaced the original 16 Dunlop SP Sport 7000 A/S that came equipped on my Accord sedan. I had them installed and took them on a short road trip the very next day which was perfect for breaking the tires in. I didn't get to test the handling as...  Read More
