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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

Best snow you will ever buy, period! Everyone who complains about how bad their car is in the winter, I tell them about this tire. Every single person has come back amazed. They can't believe it's the same car. People who think their all season tires are good, haven't tried a true snow tire. Not even close, these tires will walk circles around them. My dad...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

I'm a 67yo retired COP. Saying this I still drive lika a COP, but I am driving a Kia Sportage. Nice running veh., but not a Corvette. So far I am extremely pleased with these tires. They gave me good handling & traction in snow when living in Maryland. Now in Myrtle Beach, SC I longer think of ice & snow. Wet weather traction is great, as is highway &...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

Living in upstate New York I wanted a tire that would be good in the snow. I purchased these tires last Wednesday, they were delivered the next day and I had them mounted on Saturday. Over the last three days I have driven through driving rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow mix, moderately deep snow and slick roads. Under all of these conditions the tires...  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 Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is the second set of Blizzaks I've had for this vehicle and the 6th set of Blizzaks I've had on vehicles I've owned. They are the best snow tires on the market. I drive very aggressively and consistently 5-10 miles over the limit in just about any condition and feel safe. As a hockey parent, coach, player, and ref I must drive in any condition and drive...  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 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 Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I bought these tires for my lady friend's AWD FX45. This car splits its time between New Jersey and Vermont, and traverses between the two every winter. I drive the car frequently. They are terrific tires on the Interstate and on local roads, both paved and unpaved. I am not consciously aware that I am on snow tires when driving on dry roads, but in snow,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

Got these tires as the OEM tires from buying the car new. My Jetta Sportwagen TDI has enough torque to break the tires free and activate traction control. This can make it difficult when starting on a hill or on a slick road, since I need to feather the throttle to ensure grip.The tires are a bit noisy on the highway, and tend to transmit even small bumps...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Owners know the SC430 is no sports car (my prior ride was a 993, and I married this car :) . In fact it rides harshly in the city and soft on the highway, and you'd have to fundamentally modify suspension from stock to change that. So I've been trying to find the tire that makes the most of what the car is and isn't. Couple sets of runflats, horrible, got...  Read More

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

Only 3500 miles so far. Replaced OE Michelin Lattitudes with 36k miles. Was worried about change from V rated to H rated. No problem. My 2011 Lexus RX 350 rides better and is quieter than when it was new. Love this tire, especially the very low noise. This is a quiet tire. Not sure yet how long they will last but they have a great warranty so no worries....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Love it and hate it. I have been using Blizzak tires on my vehicles every winter for the past 20 years and have always been impressed with their performance under adverse conditions. They deliver as promised. However, there is a downside. Two issues in particular. Road noise is quite noticeable even when new, but increases significantly as the tread wears...  Read More
