Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I was lucky that the new Michelin Premier LTX tires came out in June in for my 2012 Ford Explorer. This is the 3rd set of tires I have put on my car which currently is at 99,500 miles. The first set of Hankook Optimo tires were horribly unsafe and I took them off at 35,000 miles. The next set of Michelin Latitude Tour tires lasted until 98,750 miles but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

It just works. There's not much more you need to know. AWD helps but you can certainly screw up with bad all seasons in the snow. Once in a while my tires just lose all traction when making a sharp turn, but you shouldn't be doing that at high speeds on snow on public roads anyway. And let's face it, you don't do off road snow racing.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

This tire was recommended by the Tire Rack and Michelin sites for this vehicle, a 1999 MB CL500 coupe with 110,000 miles in exceptional condition, incl suspension. Tires are 100 H series (135mph max).I have owned many brands (eight by count) and buy Michelin's, due to the consistent performance, durability and quality. Car has the M119 high performance...  Read More

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

This tire is so much better than factory tires. Ride, feel, traction, hydroplane off the chart. Only thing that I make down slightly is road noise. Just a hair more than stock tires. Well worth the improvements in all other categories.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

What a significant improvement over ANY all season tires on ice, light and heavy snow!My 3 month old Dunlop SP sport 5000 tires were rated with the best snow and ice traction among all other all season tires in the latest consumers report survey, but the car can't even stop without sliding out of control when I reach intersections on slight icy conditions....  Read More

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

This tire is as about as good as it gets for an semi-aggressive mud tire. My only complaint is wet road traction is a bit unnerving. They do well in the snow, at least the 255/75-17 on my Wrangler do extremely well, some of which probably has to do with Jeeps 4x4 system. They also bite decent on hard packed snow/ice compared to other mud tires I've had in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Commercial T/A Traction

I purchased a set of these for my truck back when I was still working as a contractor and needed tires that could handle snow & mud. Then, I got injured and retired, and got involved with the county fire & rescue volunteers. Now my truck is fitted out as a mobile radio command post and on call 24/7, so dependable tires are even more critical. And these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I've lived in Minnesota and Wisconsin my whole life (and driving for 22 years). These are hands-down the best performing tires in winter conditions that I have experienced. This is the second set of winter-only tires I've owned (other set was Dunlop Wintersport M3 in the same size on the same car). I've also driven this car with the stock Bridgestone Potenza...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance CS TripleTred All-Season

Best tires I've ever owned. Most of my driving is highway and city. The tire traction and performance is very good. I do go snow skiing every winter traveling through snow, which most of the roads are plowed otherwise roads are closed. The tire traction performed well in light snow, except ice. Occasionally off-road 4 wheeling through rough terrain towing a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

Bought these to go on a BJ73 land Cruiser. I was looking for a good compromise between weight, traction, and cost. Weight was critical because the truck has a non-turbo'd 4 cylinder diesel. These tires replaced a set of BFG AT KOs in 235/85R16. The difference is night and day with the GYs winning hands down in all categories. The truck rides and handles much...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

in 2008 I bout these Goodyear Assurance Triple Tread for my Chrysler and i must say these are honestly the BEST tires i have ever bought. I tested them out in an empty parking lot during a rain night and they did not miss a beat.Then in the blizzard of 2010 in MD.. when all cars were ordered off the road, these tires held their own and then some, and this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

Great go between AT/MT tire. Has lasted for 60K miles easy, I could probably push them to 70K. On road manners are pretty good, I'm not crazy about the wet pavement traction, such as taking off from a stop sign on a wet street. But once you get them going the wet road manners are good. Dry traction is great, and off road they are probably one of the best all...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SR-A

These came new on my pickup and have served me well, They are very quite , secure and have a nice ride to them. I have 34,000 on them now with 10% of that on gravel or off road. Other than wearing out slightly earlier than I thought the would they have been excellent. I expect to change them a the 40,000 mile mark prior to winter setting in here in North...  Read More

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

I've been buying the BF tires for years. Well, actually two sets which I have depended on for years. On my Dak, they have taken me everywhere any Redneck would need/want/care to go. 20 of snow, we pulled our fools around the farmland on a tube- behind the truck. Heck of a good time! We've done a lot of mudding with them as well, and for how my truck is set...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A

Ok, this is actually the first time I do an online review, because these tires deserve it. First off, I have a 2011 Nissan versa that came with ContiProContact 185/65 R15 (Horrible tires: very noisy, poor performance, and the rubber started cracking at around 20K miles.I replaced the four tires with the BF 195/65 R15 and I feel the difference right away....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60 RFT

All statements made are COMPARED TO STOCK TIRES, in winter driving conditions. In snow and ice, these tires are drastically different than stock. They allow you to take off a bit quicker, turn a bit faster, and stop a bit shorter. They handle very much like worn stock tires on damp roads, if that makes sense. If you drive in the winter on these, and expect...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G95A

We went from the east coast (VA) to the west coast (CA) & back, up & down mountains & off-road (got lost while using the GPS Navigation system) all while pulling a pop-up camper replaced the tires @ 105,000 & they still had enough tread left to pass Virginia state inspection ! replaced with the same tires Yokohama Geolander G95 P225/55/R17 95H I HIGHLY...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I have only had this tire for a few months, but compared to the OEM Yokohama Geolander it replaced, it's like night and day. Living here in Colorado, we see all types of driving conditions. A couple of months ago, we got 8 inches of hail and so I really wanted to test out these tires; I couldn't make them slide, couldn't make them slip, and they stopped...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

I purchased these tires to replace my run flats that came with the vehicle and oh boy am I happy! I always drive with all traction controls turned off and I have a hard time getting these tires to spin or even get the back loose in wet roads. the tires are fairly quit but a little harsh when it comes to speed bumps and pot holes.my driving is pretty...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2

I found this tire to be excellent in the mud and on street it corners and handles effectively. Not sure if use it for sharp rocks but it's great for basic off roading. I've spent most of my life driving sedans/trucks/SUVs not sport cars. Need to take the vehicle you are driving for what it is and this tire is definitely for truck and suv use.   Read More
