Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

It's difficult to find a review from someone who put a set of snow tires on a 2wd Ranger, or pickup for that matter. I decided to give these a shot on my 2002 2wd ranger as we've recently moved into the country and plowing is sparse. Being in northern OH, we see every type of snowfall during the winter season. Moving from a set of all-seasons to General...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

Perfect rear tires for my 2 wheel drive pickup with limited slip differential. Matches great with the Firestone LE tires on the front. Sometimes you don't use the same type tires on the rear as you need on the front.   Read More

How Tough is the New BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2?

Tough enough to drop from an airplane! To demonstrate the enhanced toughness of their new All-Terrain T/A KO2, BFGoodrich mounted them on wheels and dropped them from the sky. With the majority of all-terrain tires' punctures happening in the sidewall area, BFGoodrich paid special attention to reinforcing the sidewalls with technology from their off-road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

to confirm, these are light truck tires and deserve a review based on the application. I find these tires to be very capable in almost any situation. They are perfect for light trucks such as my half ton pickup. I have never rotated the tires since installation, which was 49,000 miles ago. The tread wear has been perfectly even from front to back. I have a 7...  Read More

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

I put these on my 1/2 Ton Chevy pickup and they are great. Silent, smooth, responsive, good in wet and snow. I get over 22 MPG on the highway in the winter and over 23 MPG in the summer at 65MPH on flat land. The tires barely show any wear at this point so I hope they last. I don't think I have ever been this impressed with a set of tires. Good job...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture SAT KL61

When I found these tires on TireRack.com in 2011, they were rated near the top of the On-/Off-Road All Terrain survey group, and the price was a real bargain compared to the other tire models which were also rated high in that group. They also had the design and construction features that I wanted -- I always do thorough online comparison research before I...  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 Firestone Destination LE

Good wet traction which at the time was a high priority. I have dedicated winter tires, so haven't had the opportunity to evaluate their snow traction. Good treadwear, considering they are used on a pickup which spends a good deal of time towing a fifth wheel trailer which puts a lot of load on the tires. Reasonable price. Probably would not buy these again...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A Spec

I bought these three years ago along with a new set of rims. Shipping from Tirerack was great, and I loved that they came inflated, on the rims. I just slapped them on the car. They handled well, I always felt like they performed great. They are now producing a wumpwumpwump sound at medium speeds, so I'm thinking about replacing them. They still have 3/32...  Read More

Introducing the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

Within the past year, many consumers were disappointed to learn that the popular Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor they had grown to love had been discontinued. Always well liked for its good road manners and capable all- terrain abilities, many feared the replacement would not live up to its predecessor. Goodyear erased those worries with the introduction of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

So this is my second set. I put 70000 on the first set and the right rear developed a slow leak. Went to the local Firestone dealer and he said these tires need to be replaced. I said they have plenty of tread. He said after 4 years the side walls have had too much sun and wear. You do not want a blow out at 80 mph. These tires have been driven close to 100...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor

I drive mostly on highway and country roads. We fish on beaches In Riverhead NY, and Cupsogue Bch, NY. The Wrangler tires performed excellent. I did not have to air down. I drive on farm land during the hunting seasons on an upstate farm - tires performed well and needed 4WD only on muddy or snowy situations. I got a bug to replace the Wranglers with regular...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

For a light car with small tires, it did very well this snowy NW Indiana winter. My third vehicle with Blizzaks, one set on my 4 wheel drive pick-up and the other on wife's Hyundai Tucson. Lose a little agility over regular tires, but that is to be expected.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

I just order a new set of General Grabber AT2's for my pickup. The first set now has 72,000 miles on them. Two are still at 5 - 6/32 and two are down to 3 - 4/32. These are a great tire if you live in a snow / ice prone are and they will claw like mad through sand and mud.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

I,ve had these tires for a short period,the ride comfort is very good almost feels like a conventional tire. The road noise is a different story these tires are noisey almost pickup truck noise.I'm hoping warmer weather brings a softer tire and less noise.I had the continental ssr all season run flats less noise but harder ride overall the bridgestone is a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

OEM tires for my manual Versa Hatch. On sound, dry pavement, turning from a stop sign, they break traction on moderate take-offs (122hp). They hydroplane a bit, even with inflation on the high side, and are generally mediocre in the rain (not as bad as a 2wd pickup I once had, but a close second). In snow, shallow or deep, they're about the worst tires I've...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic LT

I was unhappy with the performance of my very expensive OEM all-season tires that came with the truck. When I was due for tires it so happened winter was around the corner. I decided to go with a dedicated winter tire and chose these based on reviews and price. After over 1000 miles I can say they are a great tire! I got my tires studded and they handle ice...  Read More
