Tires like the popular S.Drive and its predecessor, the AVS Intermediate, have a special place in the memories of many high performance drivers.   Yokohama offers much more than performance tires. Whether you're looking at touring tires for the family...  Read More

Michelin's Premier A/S is one of the top-rated tires in the Grand Touring All-Season category. It combines the smooth, quiet ride and confident handling we expect from this category, while also offering unique technology that retains better performance as the tire wears down.

Dodge Journey Tire Options for 19" Wheels

First offered in 2008, the Journey comes in multiple trim levels, each with optional wheel and tire sizes. Owners of some SXT and RT models came equipped with 19" wheels shod in 225/55R19 Kumho Solus KH16. Every owner who has had to replace their Original Equipment tires has quickly found that they do not have many options. This is unfortunate as the O.E....  Read More

Back in 2011, the "Michelin LTX M/S Tires Replaced by New LTX M/S2" post was introduced to let people know about the new Michelin LTX M/S2.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HT RH12

I just replaced my aging Michelin tires with this set from tire rack. A week after we had our first snowstorm in northern NJ. The tires handled the snow with no issues. I saw a lot of 4x4 SUVs sliding up one hill by us and I had no issues at all. In the dry the tires are very quiet and the steering response is similar to the Michelins, which were a lot more...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Don't get me wrong, I feel totally confident driving in snow and ice conditions with this tire. In a straight line it starts and stops very well with very little slippage. However, cornering grip is less than expected and the Macan tends to drift out during the turn in moderate to heavy snow conditions. I have heard that this is a Macan tendency so I am...  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 Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

I waited to drive on these for a few months before writing a review. I have loved these tires since getting them but after driving from Long Island to Burlington, VT in sleet slush and heavy snow, driving around Burlington in 6-12 inches of snow, I can confidently say THESE TIRES ROCK. I never felt slipping or sliding, even while passing in the snow covered...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

This is my 2nd set for the Latitude Tour HP. I upgraded the size, and have never looked back. They have been super on 3 of ice snow combo popular in the Mid Atalntic area. Wet traction has been superior. Dry braking is excellent, Road noise is so far reduced from the OF tire that I thought they were underinflated.Life has been 50K+ with a combo of Hwy and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Had BFG AT/KO tires before and although mostly satisfied with all aspects except snow I wanted to try a different tire. I wanted BFG TA KO2 tires, but my size is not available until November. I needed tires now, after comprehensive research which really ends up confusing as there are as many one stars as there are five for most tires. Frankly these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Got caught in a driving snow-storm on I-81. Left the highway and had to make my way up and down hills for about ten miles to get to a hotel to wait out the weather. At that point there was about 4-6 inches of snow and the roads were completely unplowed. It was packed down in most cases but I still had to bull-doze my way through drifts a couple times.I...  Read More

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
