All Hail the King: Bridgestone's Blizzak DM-V2 Impresses on the Ice

With a four-wheel drive truck or SUV, you have a notable advantage accelerating in slippery conditions when compared to most passenger cars. However, even the most capable all-wheel drive vehicles shod with all-season tires will find difficulty compared to two-wheel drive passenger vehicles equipped with dedicated winter / snow tires. If you want the absolute...  Read More

Introducing Bridgestone's Blizzak DM-V2: The Tire to Beat for Winter 2015?

For the past several years the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 has been our highest consumer rated tire among a strong field of competitors in the Studless Ice & Snow (Light Truck) market. While it seems illogical to discontinue such a well liked product, history has proved that the Blizzak line of tires seem to evolve and rarely, if ever, take a step back....  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 Michelin Premier LTX

My 2013 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite came with Michelin Primacy MXV4s. I've been a long time Michelin fan and have had experience with these tires on my old Accord. They are great passenger touring tires, and I can see why Honda would put them on their top of the line van. The MXV4s are very smooth and nice riding touring tires for cars. On a heavy Van/SUV...  Read More

Do you or a spouse travel on business? Maybe you have a child just learning to drive or perhaps leaving for their first year of college.

The DriveGuard is the first run-flat tire designed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

These are absolutely excellent tires for the price, and I'd recommend them for nearly any normal vehicle. I've had several sets of different Yokohama tires, and have enjoyed every single one of them (including AS530, various AVID and Geolander truck tires). These AVID Touring-S tires have been perfect for 60,544 trouble free miles so far as of today. I'm...  Read More

Michelin Premier A/S vs Michelin Defender

Michelin is consistently recognized as a leading manufacturer of car and truck tires. As a pioneer of new technology, Michelin created the first radial tire and has been at the forefront of design and research ever since. One can often find Michelin tires ranking at or near the top of tests and customer survey data. Michelin is perhaps best known by many...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

These tires met and exceeded all reasonable expectations over the Winter past which saw a much higher than normal amount of snow on the roads from hard snow pack to iced intersections, deep new fallen heavy snow (wet & dry) and extreme cold where road salt was entirely ineffective. All-in-all it was a bitter, long and snowy season best forgotten but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

AWSOME tire, i have 80000+ miles on these tires and they are just starting to show noticeable wear. And ifi was to judge,i would say there is another 60000-80000 before i will need to order the next set. They are a bit noisy but come on they are a off road tire, and i have certainly heard tires way worse for noise. I put these light truck load range E 80psi...  Read More

Is the General AltiMAX Arctic the Best Studdable Winter / Snow Tire?

With recent snow falls still making news, many of us our reminded that we still have many weeks (and months in some areas) of winter driving left this season. To see if February is still a good time to purchase winter tires, take a look at "Is it Too Late to Buy Winter / Snow Tires?"   The Bridgestone Blizzak WS80, and Michelin X-Ice Xi3 and Bridgestone...  Read More

What's the Best All-Season Tire for Ice and Snow?

All-season tires are a great option for many drivers. They are suitable for drivers who live in an area that receives occasional light snow, and/or freezing temperatures a few times throughout the year. Some all-season tires, such as the Continental ExtremeContact DWS, even provide above average snow capabilities that are a benefit in winter months. However,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Nero

I bought a brand new 2012 VW Golf almost exactly 2 years ago, and put P Zero Neros on with just a few miles on the odo. Currently (9/24/14) the car has about 46K and change showing, so without exaggeration, I have driven the Pirellis more or less 45,000 miles over 2 years. Just had the car inspected today- there is still 5-6/32 of tread left. They easily...  Read More

Continental Makes Three of the Best All-Season Tires for Winter Driving

Given the severe winter season of 2013 -  2014, many drivers are asking which tires have the best snow and ice traction. The answer is simple - the best dedicated winter / snow tires like the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80 for cars and Blizzak DM-V1 for crossovers and SUVs, walk away from even the best all-season tires when it comes to traction in snow and on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A

So far this has been a good tire for me. I got to work every day last winter. I live in a hole, if I can make it to the street, out of my subdivision I've got it made! This is a truck tire so it will not be as soft, or quiet as a passenger tire, and nothing but chains work on ice! Good tire for me, I'm happy.   Read More

Why Doesn't My Car Come with a Spare Tire?

Is the spare tire becoming extinct? With a growing number of vehicles in the United States being sold without one, it could appear that way. In fact, many drivers are unaware they may not have one until they need one. New cars, trucks and SUVs seldom come with a spare tire, wheel and jack kit due to an increasing demand for fuel economy and storage space....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor

Great all around tire. Despite going with the Load Range E and extra reinforced sidewalls and tread, and a half inch of tread depth, the ride is excellent and the noise is minimal. Compared to the OE Goodyear P-metric passenger car rated tires, these ride almost as smoothly and as quietly, and that is amazing. As a sound engineer I am confident in my ability...  Read More
