Best Heavy-Duty Winter Tires

Many drivers of heavy-duty three-quarter-ton and one-ton pickup trucks use On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tires like the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 for winter driving. Other simply use standard Highway All-Season tires. While the all-terrain tires will typically outperform their all-season counterparts in snow traction, they are still not as good in winter...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

Best tires I've had, Aggressive driving. I wore them out in 8000 miles doing burnouts and autocrossing the truck. I have an LS3 Corvette V8 in my single cab pickup. When the tires were new, they made ZERO road noise and rode smoothly. I took them through 8 of slushy snow and they performed. I took them through severly soft sand in a well traveled river bed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Duravis M700

I have a 2009 Silverado 2500 HD VORTEC. I have been very satisfied with these tires and was going to replace them with the same tire. After checking on Tire Rack, I am surprised there is so much negative info about the tire. I do some off road driving with my pickup and have only gotten stuck once - to me the ultimate test. I suspect any vehicle might have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar I/T G072

I have 4 of these dedicated snow tires on my '08 Subaru Tribeca whenmost of my contemporaries run All Season tires. I have a very short steep driveway and live in the southern Allegheny region of Central Pennsylvania. My driveway also has a northern exposure so it does not melt as quickly as someof my neighbors driveways do. i have great confidence in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Knowing that I am making a definite trade off in handling for better winter weather traction, I am quite pleased. Going from a lower profile M+S sport touring tire to a Winter/snow tire is very much (in my case) going from the feel of a sport/touring car to that of a small (yet capable) pick-up truck/SUV. Pushing hard, in conditions that my other tires would...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT LT

I drive a standard 2011 Dodge Ram 4WD pickup. I load wood pellets for my home heating in the truck, 2000 pounds at a time. These tires hardly notice the load. I can run home at 65 with that load. As far as traction, it's unbelievable.. Never spun a tire over the past two bad winters in upstate NY. Great tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

After much research, I bought a set of these for my 4x4 f150. I'm a cdl truck driver 10+years, so please don't listen to all the whiny people who can't drive on snow, And don't have a clue what they are talking about.This is the best all around tire I have found for light pickups/ SUVs. What I like is they are a strong- well made tire! Great traction, great...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HT RH12

I am a long-time fan of Hankook tires, but this is my first experience with this particular (SUV/Truck) model. I had these installed on my Toyota RAV-4 after much comparison to other premium brands. Absolutely no regrets. I've found them to be excellent performers and an outstanding value! They provide a very smooth and quiet ride, with great hydroplane...  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 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

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 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 got my tires studded and they handle ice...  Read More

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

Ok, so I'm a woman and not heavy into tire culture and definitely not an expert. I've bought probably about 10 sets of tires in my life and have always driven pickup trucks since I was a teenager. Live in Florida, so I have no snow knowledge. I do drive through a lot of pouring rain & standing water. I don't off road in the sense that I make a sport out of...  Read More
