Use these tires on our shop plow truck. Truck gets light summer use around town and used to move travel amd boat trailers around the property. These tires have outperformed any tires we have ever used before. Truck is used to plow several properties. One of these has a 800ft 30+deg incline. No spin!!! tread cleans well. Would definitly buy again.

I've had two sets of these tires on my 2WD Tundra and I am not pleased with their wet traction nor their snow/ice traction. Back tires spin from dead stops when raining and I have fish tailed on multiple occasions with light snow on the ground. Thankfully the front tires kept their grip in these situations. I guess this can be expected from a pickup truck with light back end, but I have to assume some of it is due to the tires based on the poor wet traction. Why did I buy a second set of these tires you may ask? Well, the first set lasted a long time and they were priced well. I have decided to go with the Yokohama Geolander A/T this time around so we'll see how they compare. I will try to remember and update this review once I have had a chance to see how the new tires perform. I would not recommend these tires, at least not for a 2WD pickup truck.

Non-Winter Tires That Meet the Industry's Severe Snow Service Standards

Thursday, January 17, 2013 by Hunter Leffel

Sever Snow service symbolQualified winter / snow tires have the mountain/snowflake marking on their sidewall. In short, it indicates a higher level of winter capabilities, including traction in snow and on ice compared to an all-season tire. The spirit of the marking is intended for dedicated winter solutions, however there are a few models out there that meet or exceed the threshold and sport the severe snow mountain/snowflake symbol.

Listed below are the non-dedicated winter / snow tire options that meet the severe snow service requirements with the mountain/snowflake symbol. Currently, the only options are for SUVs and light trucks. The following tires can be great solutions if you want a higher level of winter element traction without swapping tires back and forth twice a year. Certain sizes of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO and General Grabber AT 2 do not have the mountain/snowflake symbol and those sizes can be found under the "Specs" tab.

On/Off Road All-Terrain

On/Off Road Commercial Traction

I am a firm believer in the dedicated winter solution, and have been installing winter tires on my personal vehicles for years. There is one exception to that, and that is the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac on our pick-up. It's as close to a winter tire that I have used.

To find the right tire for your vehicle and how you drive, shop by vehicle.

November 10, 2010

I put the tires on the front of my F250 ext cab 4x4 diesel truck for about a month to see how I liked them. Not too bad, but I moved them to the rear and put a set of Michilen AT2 on the front. The Michilen tires are quieter, but have noticably less grip off road. I suspect that the Michilen tires will wear a lot longer. With a heavy 7.3L diesel sitting on them all the time, I figured they were a better option for the front end based on tread wear alone. The handling seems to be identical between the two tires. They both grip very well on wet roads.



With the General's on the rear I've driven up some decent inclines in some wet pastures with about 400 lbs in the bed and never had a problem slipping a tire. Never even Bothered to lock the hubs in. With over 4000K of firewood in the back, I did find a wet spot one day and got stuck. I didn't have the hubs locked in, and I was just easing along around a pond in 1st gear, so I didn't have any speed or momentum either. I was impressed with how far I got before I slipped a tire. I almost made it all the way through (over 20 feet). Antoher 5 feet and I could have got out and locked the hubs and let the front tires pull me out. As it was, I had cut a 6 or 7 inch rut with the tires before they started to slip. Others are right about the mud though. Once they slip, they pack full and dig a hole in a hurry. I look forward to seeing how these do on the snow and ice this winter. I will be reporting back on the tread wear also.

Looking for the Best Tires for Your Ford F-150? We've Got You Covered!

Wednesday, November 21, 2012 by Steve Huffman

America's best-selling pickup truck, the Ford F-150, deserves Tire Rack's best-selling tires. Many F-150 owners are passionate about their truck and hold on to them for a long period of time. Most owners even go through multiple sets of tires, due to the truck's long-lasting dependability. With that in mind, Ford truck owners want nothing but the best for their pickup.

I believe the best Highway All-Season tire for this vehicle is the Michelin LTX M/S2. This tires does it all and is exactly what you would expect from Michelin. It has superior all-season traction, a smooth and quiet ride and is offered with a 70,000-mile treadlife warranty.

If you're looking to get a little dirty and go off-road with the truck, one of the best On-/Off-Road All Terrain tires is the Firestone Destination A/T. This tire has been around for many years, but it never gets old. It takes on all newcomers and is still a best-selling tire in its class. Featuring Firestone's UNI-T technology, the tire blends off-road traction with enhanced on-road capabilities. UNI-T is a combination of technologies that merge a comprehensive design method with innovative manufacturing features for improved tire comfort, performance and wear.

Finally, if you're looking for F-150 tires to handle winter's worst condition, then go with the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1. This tire simply gets it done on ice and in the snow. With a focus on ice traction and braking, as well as wet road handling and hydroplaning resistance, this tire provides wintertime driving competence. Blizzak DM-V1 radials meet the industry's severe snow service requirements and are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol.

All three tires have provided our customers with the driving experience they've been looking for and their comments prove this:

"I've had these tires on my truck for two weeks and they are just outstanding. They grip the road like glue in the rain. On the dry pavement they handle superb. They don't roll or pitch in the corners. You won't be sorry if you buy them." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2005 Ford F-150 XLT Sup Cab 4wd (Michelin LTX M/S2)

"Absolutely, hands down, the best all-terrain tire on the market. 90% on-road driving, 10% off-road. I wouldn't hesitate to drive my truck through anything with these. I've had more aggressive tires which gave up handling. These are a no compromise tire. Buy them ASAP if you're in the market before Firestone realizes they are worth double the price!" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2011 Ford F-150 XLT 4wd Super Crew (Firestone Destination A/T)

"After reading the reviews for this tire and other winter traction tires, I decided on the Blizzaks. Best snow tire ever! I live in the Pacific Northwest and drive in varied conditions: compact snow and ice, deep snow, slush, water, uphill, etc. Great traction in all conditions. I hardly ever need to use four-wheel drive. I would highly recommend these tires to anyone, and I will never buy anything else." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2010 Ford F-150 Platinum 4x4 Super Crew (Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1)

November 17, 2012

I purchased these tires as a replacement for the Bridgestone OEM's that I had installed the last time I needed new tires. Those tires seemed pretty good for the beating I spooned out for them.However it was time for something a little bit more appropriate for my driving style.
I read a lot of reviews and Tundra forum posts for a new replacement. These Firestones won because I drive my Tundra more like a sports car and less like the big pickup that it is. Aside from what I had read, I liked the aggressive tread pattern but this doesn't mean that it impacts the ride other than being a bit nosier than the OEM's. I had these installed at a local CarX just as a snow storm was bearing down on us. When I pulled out of the shop there was 4-5" of fresh deep wet snow on the ground. I had little to be concerned about as soon as the tires started turning. They rolled straight and true through the deep snow at highway speed without missing a beat, even though others were less ambitious to drive at the speeds I chose to. They're snow performance is outstanding for a tire of this type and low sidewall height. They offered great confidence and when the weather dried and got warmer they cornered well and had excellent braking power. A good example would be while on a trip to Deals Gap on the Tennessee - N. Carolina border, I made a friend who was in the back seat ill because of the grip available and the frequent beeping of the traction control as I swung the truck left and right through 300+ turns in 11 miles! Needless to say be didn't lose his lunch in my truck even though his skin tone was greener than when we began the trip through the pass, but these tires impressed me in their ability to grip those tight turns. If you're on the fence about buying a good inexpensive sport truck tire? Don't be hesitant to choose these. you're wallet and you won't regret it!

The previous reviews has noted exceptional handling on ice,I found this to be true as well. The grip on ice was remarkable. The was very reassuring in a pickup truck. The only issue has been a slight increase in noise level from OEM and two of the tires were difficult to balance (almost 6 ounces needed). Would probably buy the same tires again, price/value is just right.

This tire has been an excellent performer all-around. I have not taken my truck off-road beyond just driving through the yard, so I can't say how well they do in muddy conditions. The treadwear has far exceeded my expectations. My truck is a chipped turbo diesel and tends to be very hard on tires because of the heavy front end and the torque spinning the rears. They have held up very well. Will buy again!

I previously had a set of Michelin Lattitude tires on my truck, and loved them. The LE2s, so far, have been as good to drive on with one exception; on-center feel. It does seem like this tire wanders a bit at highway speeds in a straight line. I have since had my alignment checked and have inflated the tires with nitrogen. I believe the alignment may have positively effected this situation slightly. The ride is great. Have not had a chance to get them in any snow or ice conditions as I purchased in July 2012 and since I live in Atlanta it might be a couple years before we even get any snow. Coming off of Michelins into the Firestones, my expectations have been exceeded thus far, as there is a reasonably significant difference in price. The on-center feel issue I mentioned is relatively minor; rating the Michelins on this I would rate a 10, and the Firestones I would rate an 8. On a personal level, I have owned many vehicles in my lifetime including 7 BMWs and have had quite a bit of track experience, so I tend to be quite judgemental on my tires. My expectations and evaluations are based upon the real-life expectations of this specific tire on this specific vehicle. Meaning, I do not expect either to have the characteristics of a performance car. It is what it is. For a reasonably heavy pickup truck and a light truck tire, this is a decent combination for a highway-tread tire, especcially considering the cost. Lastly, I have not noticed any difference in fuel economy, which I consider that to be a good thing.

I bought the Fortera TripleTreds while I was stationed in Germany. I replaced the set of Wranglers that were on my GMC Sierra 4WD. I felt the difference immediately; I could "feel" the tires grab/hold the road while driving and cornering. I was stationed in Germany for 5-1/2 years. The tires held up great while cruising up to 90 mph on the autobahn--the truck has a sweet spot for 87 mph. I had absolutely no problems driving on/through snow, mud, dirt, ice-covered roads and heavy rain. I'm stationed in Florida now. The tires are holding up with no problems while driving on the sandy off-roads and interstate/local highways, especially when driving through the daily torrential rainfalls that seem to happen just about everyday during the summer months. I liked these tires so much, when the wife's Toyota Camry needed new tires I installed TripleTreds on it. She said she was impressed that she could "feel" the tires grab/hold the road like no other tire she had on her past cars.

Bridgestone Blizzak: A Name Synonymous With the Best Snow and Ice Traction

Tuesday, September 4, 2012 by Zig Ziegler

When winter weather approaches many Americans switch their summer or all-season tires for a more capable dedicated snow and ice tire. Switching to a dedicated winter / snow tire will provide traction benefits far beyond any all-season can offer, but the "Blizzak" name is recognized by many Americans as the pinnacle of winter weather performance. Bridgestone Blizzak tires are designed to deliver wintertime traction and control that inspires driver confidence.

Whether you drive a sports car, family sedan or light duty truck there is a Bridgestone Blizzak tailored for your specific vehicle.

For a high performance coupe or sedan, I recommend the Blizzak LM-60 and Blizzak LM-25. Both of these tires offer the best blend of high speed durability and snow and ice traction. On those dry-road, cold weather days, the vehicle will still feel and perform as it was designed. The combination of a high silica content winter / snow tread compound molded into a directional tread design features independent tread blocks with 3-D zigzag sipes for hydroplaning resistance and greater accelerating and braking forces on snow-covered roads. Both the Blizzak LM-60 and Blizzak LM-25 are offered in a run-flat or RFT (Run-Flat Technology) version for run-flat equipped BMW, MINI, and Mercedes-Benz.

For coupes, sedans, minivans and smaller crossover vehicles, I would recommend the Bridgestone Blizzak WS-70. The WS-70 is the pinnacle of winter traction thanks to Bridgestone's NanoPro-Tech silica-enhanced Tube Multicell compound layered on top of a standard winter compound. The Tube Multicell compound features thousands of microscopic tubes and cells uniformly distributed throughout the compound that wicks water away that form between the tire's contact patch and the surface of snow-packed and icy roads.

For an SUV, crossover or pickup truck, I would recommend the Blizzak DM-V1. The Blizzak DM-V1 features a Multicell Z compound which uses microscopic bubbles and tubes to absorb the thin film of water that forms as tires run over snow-packed and ice-covered roads. The rubber compound also includes a special polymer that improves silica dispersion to increase wet grip in chilly temperatures by suppressing the influence cold temperatures have on rubber hardness.

If winter weather is in your future, use the shop by vehicle function to see if any Bridgestone Blizzak products are available for your vehicle.

I wrote a review about these tires when I first got them. I have put 15k miles on them. They are still doing extremely well on the pavement, dirt, mud, rock, snow. They take everything i can throw at them. My truck is 100% stock. No lockers or anything and I still haven't gotten stuck. These tires are awesome. They have gotten a little bit more noisey now they they're broken in, but they still aren't bad. They seek to be wearing very well. I rotate them every time I change my oil which is every 3k miles. I recommend these to anyone looking for an aggressive tire that will do its job! Great tires!!!

 

Get Comfort and Handling with Michelin's LTX A/T2

Monday, August 13, 2012 by Hunter Leffel

Michelin LTX AT2The LTX A/T2 is Michelin's On-/Of-Road All-Terrain tire developed to meet the needs of today's recreational and commercial pickup, van and SUV drivers. It's touted for its ability to provide even wear, low noise and good fuel economy. Offering comfort and toughness, the tire excels with off-road traction and on-road handling. 

An upgraded rubber compound results in an increase of 35% treadlife on gravel. Additionally, a 60,000-mile warranty helps to back up the durability claims. They are able to achieve the long life through MaxTouch Construction that optimizes the contact patch for long, even wear through the life of the tire. A comfortable ride is achieved through Comfort Control Technology, which uses computer-optimized design and precision manufacturing to reduce vibrations and road noise. Three circumferential grooves provide ample water evacuation for hydroplaning resistance.

Take a look at what some of our customers are saying about their experience with the Michelin LTX A/T 2:

"This is by far the best tire I've ever put on a truck. These tires grip extremely well and are super quiet, too. You can feel comfortable that they will grab when you want them to." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2005 Ford F150 FX4 SupCrew 4wd

"Michelin's LTX A/T2 is the best tire I have ever owned! Perfect dry and wet handling. These tires have been great." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 QuadCab 4wd

"I love these tires! They are great in the mud and on dirt roads. Quiet and comfortable. Very secure in the rain. I would definitely recommend and will buy again." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2000 Toyota Tundra TRD Off-Road

Available in a variety of sizes and load ratings, shop by vehicle to see if the Michelin LTX A/T2 is right for your application.

I use my truck to commute to and from work, and in all kinds of weather. When my last set was getting low on tread, I realized I bought these tires about 65K to 75K miles ago!
During the NE winter of 2010-2011, I frequently drove wife and myself into work; at this point these tires had 35-45% tread left. That winter hit us so hard and unexpected, the highways weren't even plowed sometimes. So I ended up cutting my own path in 6-12 inch snow drifts on the interstate at 35-55mph depedning on the depth of snow. I just bought a new pair and am dying to go play in the snow! Its true the ride isn't Cadillac-smooth [brand new they are great] but I'm driving an old Chevy pickup so take that with a grain of salt. The price is pretty steep upfront, but unless things change with Firestone, I may never buy another brand for my truck. Bottom line, I'd refer these tires to my friends/family and anyone else I know.

Quiet tire and smooth. Low traction on ice/snow unless in 4x4 mode. Disappointed on winter performance. Fine for summer driving. Will have to go to dedicated winter tire for winter ops. Luckily this is not our main winter vehicle. Not a bad tire just not a all season alaskan tire for trucks.
