Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Purchased four Michelin LTX tires for our '12 Nissan Armada SUV back in August 2014. We've put over 52,000 miles on them in less than 2 & 1/2 years with everything from daily city driving to big multiple 600+ mile vacations. Been through dry level pavement, dirt roads, ice, snow, etc and these tires are awesome! Kept them rotated and balanced to help with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Second season on the winter tires. Tread is holding up well and still gripping the road well in winter Chicago conditions. This is the best winter tire out there for SUV's. I have tried to slip by aggressive turns and floored vehicle, but no problem with gripping in the snow. Quieter than DM-V1. Blizzak finally topped X ice in the SUV category. I would buy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I bought a 2016 Toyota Highlander in October 2016 and had the dealer swap out the OEM tires with the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus based on a recommendation by a tire rack advisor. The tires were outstanding on dry and wet pavement in October and November. I thought these were the best tires I'd ever put on an SUV based on the performance over the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

I put this on a newer escape with some 6.5 inch wide rims so I would have some protection of the rims from the tires. I live a mile up a dirt road and destroyed my all seasons in one summer with punctures so I had to move to something more aggressive. This gave me a lift of over an inch, and a little bit of width.The ride is exceptional for AT tires, and at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

This is an incredible tire for the price. I caught them for $99 each from Tirerack and my local Firestone store mounted and balanced them at the Tirerack negotiated price, very reasonable. There is no noise at all, they ride very quietly, smoothly and responsively both around town and especially on the highway, even at 90 mph speeds. They have a very secure...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Excellent Winter tires. If you live in the upper Midwest and above and own a Truck or SUV, these tires are a best buy if you need to drive in the snow. You can't beat the price and the snow traction. I was able to drive faster than conditions would otherwise allow without even a hint of loss of traction in the deep snow with these tires. For my wife's...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have had very good experience in the past with several Blizzak tires but the size I needed was not available for my 2016 Audi A6 FWD. So I bought the Michelin X-Ice. I was really looking forward to see how they worked. I feel they worked very good in light snow, slushy, and ice conditions. One day after a significant snowfall, maybe 7 inches I decided to...  Read More

The 2015 Audi Q7 TDI Premium is loved by its owners for its lush interior and sophisticated driving characteristics. This seven-passenger SUV is also praised for its fuel-efficient TDI diesel engine.  When it comes to the vehicle’s tires, either the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric SUV-4X4 or Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400 are Original Equipment. Q7 TDI owners,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Bought a full set to replace my previous Hankook S1 Noble2's that were worn. The Hankooks when new had great grip and soft ride quality at first, but the tire took a turn for the worse after about 20k miles where it lost any advantage over an inferior tire. The GForces are a completely different tire, I'd start by comparing it to a more rigid summer...  Read More

Ready or Not Winter 2017 is Coming

Last winter definitely started out slowly, but eventually January came round and winter got serious. Are you living in the snowbelt and wondering how bad the winter of 2017 is going to be? Nobody really knows, but we do know it's coming. Do you need to run winter / snow tires? If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow, you should...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

An excellent tire so far since I have only 1,000 miles on the tire, but so far in summer driving they are just excellent. So far it is a very large step up from the tires that came as orginial equipment. The real test will be this winter since I live in MN and we get our share of very bad blizzards including snow dumps of 24 inches which can cause drifting...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Put these on my VW Touareg because the Goodyear LS that were OEM skated all over the place on water and ice/snow. Blizzaks have been excellent. I drive in a city where streets are plowed instantly so no big deal, but also a lot of driving into Indiana and Michigan along the snow and ice along the western lake shore and its scary treacherous at times. Drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

Our new Odyssey Elite purchased in January 2015 came with these tires. During both winters (end of 2015, 2015/16) these tires were removed and replaced with snow tires. So there are 15,000 miles on these tires roughly. One pair is down to 4/32 inch and the other pair is at 7/32 inch. We are now getting serious vibration at highway speeds, indicating the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is my second set of these tires in seven years. They are awesome. I still had plenty of tread life left in the front but the back tires were worn down so I opted for a complete set. You cannot get a better set of tires. I do drive aggressively at times and these tires hold true. They grip the road like summer tires in warm weather and maintain traction...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Got these tires for my 4runner, which I drive probably 90% on the highway, and I drive them very hard both on and off road. Right now at 15,000 miles in they still have 50% tread and are still running smooth. They were a little difficult to balance at first but when balanced well they are very smooth. They handle everything I could throw at them amazingly....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

My truck is back.... The old factory Oem Goodyear wrangler sa's were not all that bad. But after 40k miles they were loud, wearing out, and made my expedition ride extremely rough. These tires are not cheap. But if you are reading this you know enough to understand that you are looking into a premium tire for your truck. These michelins are worth the price...  Read More

Are Your All-Season Tires Ready to Handle All Seasons?

There’s no doubt that when it comes to driving in inclement weather during the winter months, nothing beats a set of winter / snow tires. However, if you reside in an area that receives only light snow and an all-season tire is all you need, how that tire performs during the winter months is typically the deciding factor when purchasing your replacement...  Read More

While sharing platforms with the Odyssey minivan, it broadens appeal to the group of families that just don't want a minivan, but still need the room and flexibility. The current model has been on the road since 2009 and is viewed as a success both critically and commercially. The 245/65R17 size in extremely popular, but...  Read More
