Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

This tire is awesome. You just know how special it is, from the moment you start driving...When you cross over any kind of painted surface in the road, you can tell just how sticky the tire is...it sounds like Velcro being ripped apart. I took a VERY SHARP highway exit ramp, at breathtaking speed, I thought I was going to be thrown out of the side window, a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

Michelin is Excellence!!! There is no better on road tire unless you live in Snow Country the majority of the year!!!Original Equipment was Continentals. They are a B + Tire with 16 +/- MPH on my truck. Then I went for a Larger Tire Size, Toya Open Country (35 Inch Tire) 14 +/- MPH. This Tire is a good off road tire. Highway performance, rain and snow were C...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

I swear by these tires in the winter. I have been using Blizzaks for about 10 years. This is my 10th set (we have 3 cars). They are not the best wearing tire but I don't expect them to be. I put between 15-20 thousand miles on all of my cars every year. I live in Pennsylvania - we get 100 degree summers, -5 degree winters, more rain than snow but when it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I want to provide my initial impression of the Extreme Contact DWS 06 compared to the Pirelli Cinturato P7 A/S Plus that I just returned after 1,000 miles. I replaced the original Good Year Eagle RS-A with the P7 and noticed a significant reduction in steering response, handling, and road holding on the highway. Shame on me for going from a HP tire to a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I installed these on my Jeep Wrangler Sport (model yr 2004) after the Mickey Thompson Bajas wore out in under 10k!. The Scorpions lasted me approximately 25,000 miles until I replaced them for a new set. I used to deflate down to 10-13 psi and do hardcore dune bashing in the desert, and re-inflated back up to 35 psi once all the fun was done with. They...  Read More

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

I've put 102,500 miles on this set and am pricing a new set. The tires have exceeded all expectations. I've never bought a better tire that combines comfort and control for city, hi-way, and off road driving   Read More

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

These tires are awesome. 95% of the time I'm on road, and they handle excellently. For such a large sidewall, at road pressure they still handle great (especially on a Jeep). Dry traction is superb, wet traction is very good, but is the only thing I think could improve a little. Even in snow and ice they are responsive and handle very well. I only have about...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

My northern Virginia commute is 150 miles round trip per day. All but about 5 miles of that is highway.This is a great tire. This Conti was bought primarily for wet road traction, and it has performed magnificently under those conditions. There has never been a time when grip in the rain was a concern. These tires have run on roads with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor

Second set of Wrangler S-A tires on a Tacoma. 1st set (P265/70/R16) on '03 Tacoma DblCab 4x4 OffRoad lasted 90,000 miles (six years). No leaks/flats/problems or complaints. When replaced, still had 1/8 inch tread left but started to show dry rot/UV cracks, were hard as rock). Replaced them with Firestone Destination A/T. Firestones were quiet, soft-riding,...  Read More

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

I will review again after winter but wanted to submit my initial impressions. Wow! If you have the F250 or F350 diesel you need this tire. It blows the OEM tire out of the water. I changed the OEM to a Cooper AT at less than 20K because it was worthless in the snow and ice. The cooper was somewhat better if I kept enough weight in the bed but it wore out...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I am on my 15th track day on this set of RE-11s and they are still going strong! I can't believe the durability, especially when you consider how much I have been purposely sliding the car around to learn its limits. The grip level has finally started to degrade, but as opposed to other tires which have a very sharp/sudden dropoffearly on, the RE-11 stuck...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

I own a 2013 Hyundai Sonata SE that I bought last April 2015. The factory tires that were on my vehicle posed a huge safety concern because I was sliding out of control on wet roads, snowy roads and icy roads even as I was driving below the speed limit. I waited 5 months for winter to be over to provide feedback on these tires and I must say these tires are...  Read More

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

I installed a set of these KO2s on my 04 Cayenne Turbo in the largest size the car would fit, 265/65-R18. I absolutely love the way the car looks and feels as a result. I did some off-roading and these tires are great in mud with excellent self-cleaning and great traction across rocks, gravel, and loose earth. I'm very impressed. At the same time I commute...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

My initial impressions of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S are as follows: First off, I replaced OEM Goodyear Wrangler SR-A's at the 35,277 mile mark. My bad; failed to properly rotate.Overall a better ride; quieter on all roads, smooth, comfortable, better traction dry and wet, increased confidence all around, especially driving in rain, as they grip the road...  Read More

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

Great tire so far. Used on 2013 Toyota 4Runner Limited with All Wheel Drive (torsen center differential) and 17 inch SR5 wheels for better off road performance than the stock 20 inch rims. The tires exhibited good hiway performance in wet and dry conditions no hydroplaning at speed limit (70 to 75 mph) in heavy rains on interstates. Predictable response...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I up grated my wheels from stock 16 wheels to 17 '04 STI BBS wheels. I was driving on Continental DWS. They were great tires and I have bumped them as my reserve winter tire, not much snow in Alabama but just in case. I have yet to test the tires in the wet as it has not rained thus NA atm. Will update when I get the opportunity. I was debating between these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

First off let me say that I got these tires used for the back of my 2 wheel drive work truck. They were about 75% gone when I got them. However they have been the most fantastic tires I have ever had on this truck. I plan on replacing all 4 with that tire. The side lugs Aid in the off-road capabilities amazingly, my truck is only two will drive but when I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

This is my first experience with these General RT43 tires, but not my first experience with Continental(as the manufacturer)tires because I've owned their DWS series, previous to this vehicle. Dollar for dollar, That may have been one of the best tires I've evr owned, so having driven that tire in a cuple of winters, I also decided to wait a few months to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I bought this tire to replace the OE Michelin Latitude tires that came on my JGC. After 42,000 miles on the Latitudes they had become unusually loud at highway speed and they had worn faster than I expected. I was reluctant to purchase a replacement set of Michelins because I have been a Goodyear guy for my last three Jeep Grand Cherokees, going back to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I changed out the factory run flats on our X6 almost immediately as it came with high performance summer tires (I will never understand that for cars going to snow prone areas). I didn't want to sacrifice performance for winter capability and I didn't want two sets of tires (though I understand the argument). I only had one other experience with Conti's and...  Read More
