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

These are the Jeep OEM tires for my 2009 Wrangler Rubicon. They are the best tires for the money if you want to do off-road. They will claw up steep dirt trails, skip over boulder and grip like lizards. I've driven in deep snow and icy roads and my Jeep will go faster than all Subaru, or Toyota 4x4 shod with inferior tires. They are just like the Wrangler...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Winter Slalom KSI

I purchased these tires with wheels for winter driving in North East PA. I live in an area with lots of hills and I see plenty of people slipping and sliding and on rural roads where you don't have a lot of room before you are in the ditch. I really want to stop and turn and I believe winter tires are best for me where I live.I'm very happy with the Tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have driven on these tires for the last 3 months in (Oct-Dec) Wasilla/Anchorage, Alaska. We have had several Ice/Fog conditions and some snow with several cars that ran off the road. These tires have performed as well, if not better then the last 3 sets of Blizzaks that I have run on this car. I will say this- these tires are worthless until they warm up...  Read More

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

Super tough tire-this sidewall design is a great upgrade from previous model. Handle better than you would expect a 33 inch tire would. A bit noisy with the soft top on most apparent. Super on the snow and ice. Go anywhere off-road and still highway worthy-good balance of performance.   Read More

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

The price amd the ratings are what persuaded me to purchase these tires. There extremly grippy tires, extremly soft rubber that basically sounds like their peeling off the road. I have yet to drive in snow/ice conditions but as far as rain they never miss a beat. I will be purchasing another set for my new car here in about a month. I would recommend these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have had very good experience in the past with several Blizzak tires but the size I needed was not available for my 2016 Audi A6 FWD. So I bought the Michelin X-Ice. I was really looking forward to see how they worked. I feel they worked very good in light snow, slushy, and ice conditions. One day after a significant snowfall, maybe 7 inches I decided to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport AS

The tires were OEM with my Subaru OB. With proper care, as a few people have noted, I've gotten 43K on them, with a 60/40 highway to city driving mix. They are rated to 40k. They are not off-road, or snow tires. They have been for me, a good quality tire and it does what it claims. I'm buying another set to replace them next week. How you drive also, effects...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I purchased these tires for one winter (2015-2016) in the Denver metro area. Prior to this all my winter driving was in the California Sierras using all-season M+S tires. I was *very* happy we put on these winter tires for our time in Colorado because with them I had no worries about the road conditions and felt free to head to the mountains in anything but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

The OEM ContiProContact's were getting low on treadlife and handled decently. I was waiting to find something until seeing the DWS06. I ordered them and had the dealer install them. It took a couple days to break them in. I tried to drive modestly for the first couple hundred miles. They felt great. The on/off ramp was slightly soft but not to where I felt...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Any RDX owners out there know that this is a noisy CUV/whatever-they-call-it. When I bought the car last October it had mismatched off-brand tires and anything but the smoothest road felt like a washboard. Although I normally take a more performance-oriented approach to researching tires, I figured this time around I'd look for something that smooths out the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2

We live in upstate New York, and can have significant snowfall. We have separate summer and winter tires, these are our winter tires, and are the best winter tires we've ever had. They handle quite well on dry pavement but really shine on snow and ice. Quite often, I've passed other vehicles that have slid off the road, even 4wd, and we just keep going.   Read More

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

Bought a full set to replace my previous Hankook S1 Noble2's that were worn. The Hankooks when new had great grip and soft ride quality at first, but the tire took a turn for the worse after about 20k miles where it lost any advantage over an inferior tire. The GForces are a completely different tire, I'd start by comparing it to a more rigid summer...  Read More

Best Tires for 2014 Subaru Outback

Out on the road today, it’s hard to drive far without seeing an Outback. In fact, Subaru vehicles in general have become very popular amongst outdoor enthusiasts, as well as families. With the generous cargo capacity, all-time AWD and off-road performance, this vehicle is going to be in your garage for several years. But when it’s time to replace the...  Read More

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

I put this set on my 2006 Mazdaspeed 6 right when I purchased the vehicle, so I can't compare it to other tires on this car. But these tires are awesome! They grip in every scenario and perform great in every aspect. My Mazdaspeed 6 is AWD, but when lifting the e-brake up one click (disengages rear wheels), the tires still grab extremely well with 270 crank...  Read More

What are the Differences in Winter / Snow Tire Categories

As you begin to shop for winter / snow tires this year, you may discover there are different classifications of winter tires available. So the question is: "Which one works best for me?" General AltiMAX Arctic Bridgestone Blizzak WS80 Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D Studdable Winter / Snow Offering a traditional winter compound and tread design, these tires meet severe...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Anyone that drives a CR-V knows that it needs quiet tires to be a quiet vehicle. That said, I have tried three different brands on my CR-V over the years and the Michelin Defenders are by far the quietest of all of them. The Goodyear Assurance tires were awful. They rode horribly and had a constant moaning sound that drove me crazy. I then tried Yokohama...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I installed these on my 2014 Ford Explorer Sport and upgraded the size from 255/50/20 to 265/50/20. The original Hankook Optimo H426's were terrible tires. Road like rocks and were scary in the rain. SCARY. Not safe.I had these installed yesterday and immediately noticed how quiet they are. I didn't think my old tires were loud, but these are incredibly...  Read More

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

I replaced the OEM tires at 37,000 miles because I was never confident of them in off road conditions. However since the majority of my driving is on road I needed a quiet and decent ride level. I also wanted a tough condition tire that would hold up to off roading particularly on mountain trails that were steep and rock strewn. Many of the trails I run are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

I just purchased this tire after the terrible experience of ContiProContact. The Contis were extremely noisy and a very uncomfortable ride. I literally hated driving. I was torn between the Conti Extreme Contacts, General Altimax and the Kumhos. My wife's Lexus has the ContiPureContacts and they are really a good tire. Very quiet and smooth. So I was torn on...  Read More
