Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G056

Had the first large snow of the season, 6-8 deep and powdery at first followed by ice on top and now rain.These tires have performed as expected in most areas as they are highway all season tires. Ice traction is great as is the traction on packed down snow. But I would have expected a bit more traction on the slushy ice and the powdery snow than what I got....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

These tires are awesome! I'm driving a 97 4Runner. It had Yokohama Geolanders. Bought the truck used with the Yoko's. I liked those tires and was going to replace with the same until I read the reviews on the LE2.The roads have been awful between Chicago and SW Michigan. Snow, ice, slush, smooth and everything in between. I noticed my old tires were...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HP2

I recently purchased a full set of Hankook Dynapro HP2 tires to replace the OEM Bridgestone Dueler's on our 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum in 20 P235/55R20. The OEM tires lasted about 30,000 miles with regular rotation ever 7,500 miles. I was a little skeptical about the Dynapro HP2 but have to say, after driving them in the dry, rain and in some light New...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I found the Ventus S1 Noble to be an all-round good tire for the A4. I drive in a fairly spirited fashion on rural roads and find the lateral grip through the curves in dry weather to be excellent. I don't push it in the curves on wet roads, so I don't have much input there. However, I've run them extensively at 80mph (highway) in fairly heavy rain and found...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

I live in Southeast PA, and my 3 season tires are Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3s (which I've also reviewed). I purchased the Sottozero 3 for below freezing driving months, frequently harsh winters, and to retain the sporty driving characteristics of my car when road road conditions are good. It's not easy to find a winter tire that is good in many road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA2

Had these tires on my 3 series coupe for 3 seasons as my winter tires. Had incredible snow performance. I could drive through snow as well as an SUV on these tires up to 8 inches of snow. Never had more confidence driving in snow than provided by these tires. Would buy these again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I lived 3 years in Maine and 7 now in Wisconsin. Driven everything from compact FWD cars to AWD SUVs. I had never considered buying winter tires because I never had any issues. This winter I decided to give them a try since I am spending a bit of time traveling to the Lake Superior and Michigan UP areas. I have to say that the difference was noticeable...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

I replaced a set of Firestone Destination LE (not II) that had lasted about 35,000 mi. In comparison, these tires were orders of magnitude quieter. They are great on dry roads, I have had to make a few emergency stops and have felt quite confident in their performance. Quick starts on wet roadways result in absolutely no wheel slippage (partially attributed...  Read More

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

After 10k miles I can attest that these have been very good tires thus far. I tend not to take this vehicle out in heavy snow as I have a 4x4 pick-up for that so I can't give relevant feedback for heavy snow traction, but in all other areas this tire has been great. Very smooth and quiet on the highway; gas mileage has remained consistent for the life of the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

I was skeptical about getting these tires in February, as I usually use winter tires. But I purchased a used vehicle and I wanted something that would do for the rest of the winter and be used just for summers after that. The reviews by owners of SUVs and large cars made me believe that the G-Max would have no problems in up to 2 of snow. Frankly, I am blown...  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 Michelin LTX M/S2

Although I am only allowed to enter a maximum of 100,000 miles, I actually put 129,000 miles on the tires before replacement. Tread wear was in the 3-4/32 range for all four tires.I replaced them because of sidewalk cracks and cracks between the tread blocks. In other words, the tread outlasted the rubber.I rotated the tires every other oil change and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

I am a bit of a tire geek and a believer that you buy a tire for a certain function. Know what you need it to do, and then decide on a tire accordingly. Do not assume that any tire with a good rating will make you happy. I have aggressive performance tires on my sports car. For the SUV, I have a set of LRR highway tires, and a set of dedicated snow tires....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

After nearly 80k miles I bought another set of the Pirelli Scorption ATR. Here's why. I drove the North American Continent on these tires from Mexico to Alaska and in all conditions the superiors are many to count. On dry they are stable, and the soft rubber keeps you hooked to the road. Braking is fast. On wet they have a cornering ability which is superior...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2

I live in Central NY and we get snow. I just finished our 5th winter seasons with these tires on our Accord and they have been great. I felt compelled to right a review as my wife's car with 17k miles on the all season tires struggled to get up our snowy inclined driveway this winter. The Accord walked right up it with the 5 year old snows. In their 5th year...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar G055

These tires replaced OE Michelins. Tire rep recommended the new Yokohama G055's. Great tire. To date no complaints, slightly more noise then the Michelins but nothing to make one dislike them. Have only seen slight skiff of snow since I have gotten them (approx 2 months). I would recommend these tires for your SUV. Will repost when have more mileage on them....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Having had both the OEM and Yokohama Geolanders for the Pilot - I have nearly 140,000 miles on it and am the original owner - these are by far the best tires I have ever had on this car, or for that matter, any car. Driving in NJ to work 46 miles round trip, combination highway and local roads. Through last winter in particular, the traction especially on...  Read More

Introducing the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Continental continues to produce many of the Original Equipment tires for a large amount of vehicles in production today. However, they do much more than manufacture the ContiProContact that may have come equipped on your vehicle from the factory. They have several lines of performance and touring tires for cars, trucks and SUVs that are at a reasonable...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Fortera HL Edition

My new Grand Cherokee Summit came equipped with the Fortera HL. I have had years of Goodyear tire experience on SUV's. Performance has always been good across their wide range of treads. Tread life has generally been not so good across the Goodyear brand. The Fortera HL so far is much better. I notice no tread wear at all to date.I had the vehicle since...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

Far exceeded expectations, especially in snow. After buying a CPO Q5 3.2 late in the winter and experiencing the oem Dunlops, I needed to decide on some a/s tires, and many of the usual go-to tires were sold out.I knew the Conti-General product line is excellent, based on my experience with a few models, so I took a chance on these RT tires. I hoped that 700...  Read More
