Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T RH-S

This tire was phenomenal. I'm now replacing them at 94,000 miles, but they still have plenty of wear left on them. I'm wanting to sell the Jeep but I don't want to do so with tires that old and I do need to replace the shocks as well. I did rotate them at least a couple of times.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination M/T

After owning my truck for over 12 years and having to replace tires every year, I had a Firestone shop convince me to install these tires on my truck. I was skeptical when I had first bought them, with Firestone's reputation. I can say that after 2.5 years of running these tires, that they have been great. I do rotate them about every 10,000 miles and have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

Bought these to replace OEM Continentals. Huge, positive difference. Felt like I'd installed a new set of shock absorbers/struts. They smooth out bumps and potholes, sidewall roll on turns is definitely minimized, reducing oversteer. Significant reduction in noise. Deep channeling maintains confidence in the wet, only hydroplaned when going way too fast for...  Read More

New Method Roost Wheel is a Great Fit for Jeep Wrangler

In a previous post, "Jeep Wrangler Wheels and Tires", we discussed using 17x9" aftermarket wheels with -12mm offset, which is about 4.5" backspacing on a Jeep Wrangler. That sizing, for many people, is the magic combination to fit 33" or 35" tires on the Jeep JK. I was in that same mindset, but when I saw the new Method Roost wheels we're getting in, I knew...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I got these tires as warranty replacements for noisy Contiprocontacts that where loosing chunks or rubber on the shoulders at 500 miles. The Contipurecontacts offer great grip on dry surfaces and really grab on to the corners, they are firm, but bumps or potholes are absorbed without much jarring or shock. The one quality of these tires that I find...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

First off the treadwear, because I'd give it a 12 if I could. They have been nothing short of astounding for a tire in this class. A full set of super sports was the first purchase I made when I got my car 3 years ago. Since then, I have taken the car to the track for 7 weekends, twice my girlfriend also went out in the car, totaling approximately...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

My rating reflects the set that I just replaced after approximately 52,000 miles. I purchased a replacement set of ExtremeContact DSW's yesterday, and drove 400 miles on the interstate. There's a real difference between riding on a 4/32nd tread depth versus a 10/32nd. The worn tires transmitted more road shock than the new tires, which is understandable....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek AT20

I don't understand why this tire gets bad reviews. They are standard on my 4Runner, and were on my 2004 4Runner. I was going to switch for the (In my opinion) best SUV tire made, the Goodyear Silent Armour, however after a few miles I decided to wait until a replacement is needed. The recent heavy rain in CA was no problem, I have been to the snow twice, and...  Read More

2005-2009 Mustang V6 owners, UPGRADE TO THIS TIRE FIRST BEFORE ANY OTHER HANDLING UPGRADES. This is the best performance value replacement tire and most profound handling upgrade for your car when upgrading to the 18-inch X 8.5/9 inch wheel.The lower profile and moderately stiff sidewall eliminates the bouncing and bounding of the stock 16-inch tire, and you...  Read More

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

I bought these tires and a set of 18 Hyundai rims to replace the 19 factory wheels on the car. I had two hydroplaning incidents and a terrible ride quality during my first 10,000 miles. The change was like night to day. The cars ride quality was 50% better along with an improved feel in cornering an no issues in some extreme rain and 6 deep standing water! I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

I've had them long enough to have driven in almost every condition on road, including deep snow, ice, heavy rain, dry highway, secondary roads with tight turns, and some highway cruising. I don't have any meaningful off-road experience to report.These tires transformed the ride and tire noise levels to those of near car tires in our 2006 Honda Ridgeline RTL....  Read More

I got these tires last March to replace nearly 8 year old BF Goodrich tires( great tires). The price was good for the tires and will probably be the last tires I buy for the car as its now almost 15 years old.The traction in rain is excellent and the one or two slushy wet snows were good but they haven't really been tested in snow yet. The noise level is...  Read More

Usually I would have written a review sooner, but I wanted to have a season behind me with these tires. Started the end of March, 2013, and went until the beginning of November.Except for the OEM Bridgestone RF's, these were the first Summer tires I have had on this car.
