Initial Review, 8,500 Miles on Tires
September 25, 2014

The only complaint I really have about these tires is that they get pretty noisy when they are nearing the end of their life due to cupping despite regular rotations. That being said, I got just above 80,000 miles out of my first set of these, so I am not sure I can really complain considering this is a 60,000 mile tire. I replaced my first set with Firestone Destination LE2 (I have a review there as well) mainly because of how noisy the Geolanders had gotten. Big mistake! I replaced the Destination LE2's with the Geolanders after only about 5,000 miles - mainly due to the fear of getting in an accident during the winter because of how bad the traction in snow was with the Destination LE2's. The traction improved dramatically once I put the second set of Geolanders on. My confidence driving in the snow returned immediately. I will deal with the noise once these tires are getting worn in exchange for the performance of these tires in the rain and snow.

The wet traction is excellent as we put it to the test in driving rain in order to miss a deer that ran in front of us. The tires track very well and seem to require little steering input on good roads. You do tend to feel the impact of section dividers. They are reasonably quiet on good asphalt road but the video test understates the noise on concrete roads, especially brushed concrete. On some sections there is a sound like a siren spooling up and down as speed varies that is quite noticeable and annoying. I like the tires for general driving and would likely buy them again, assuming that they have reasonable tread life. However, I would be unlikely to recommend them to someone who had a substantial daily commute on concrete highways. I have not yet had a chance to see how they do in snow.

If you rotate these tires religiously every 6000 miles the tread wear is greatly extended and road noise is minimized. I have been pleased with these tires both on road and off and will be buying another set soon.

These are the best tires that I have ever owned. I've only got a few thousand miles on them so far, but they have excellent wet and dry traction, a smooth ride, handle well, and they are quiet. I can't rate the other factors yet, such as snow traction, but my expectations are high! I am extremely pleased.

Initial Review, 12,000 Miles on Tires
September 16, 2014

Approximately a year ago I replaced the OEM (Continental Contipro) with the SERENITY PLUS on my 08 NISSAN ATIMA. They perform way better than the original Continentals. On dry roads they grip the road very well when making emergency movements. On wet roads, the tires disperses the water a lot better than the original tires at highway speeds. Hydroplaning is almost non existent. In light snow and ice it also performs good. I have not tried them in deep snow. I will review that at a later time. Keep in mind that the tires I purchased were V RATED. The ride is slightly firmer than the T rated or H rated tires. So far after about 12,000 miles & regular rotations, the tires are still fairly quiet, show no negative tread wear & still performs well. I would highly recommend the SERENITY PLUS to everyone.

Fantastic tire, so far! The car came with Conti ProContacts...that were shot at 25k miles, then tried a set of Pirelli P7 that came on some rims that I bought for winter....

Immediately after I put the Michelins on, the car handled better, better ride, less noise...better in every aspect! I wish that I would have ditched the Contis a long time ago for these. I doubt that snow/ice traction will be very good...but I plan on using a dedicated winter tire.

I put these on my 1/2 Ton Chevy pickup and they are great. Silent, smooth, responsive, good in wet and snow. I get over 22 MPG on the highway in the winter and over 23 MPG in the summer at 65MPH on flat land. The tires barely show any wear at this point so I hope they last. I don't think I have ever been this impressed with a set of tires. Good job Bridgestone!

These tires are on a small SUV, so I do not expect fantastic handling. These seem to be an average to decent tire for traction and wear. Two of the four tires are extremely loud no matter which corner of the vehicle they are. There is also a noticable thumping at any speed.

Coming off two sets of OEM Conti Contacts, I wanted something that was smooth and quiet. I normally buy Michelin but read the glowing reviews of these Pirellis and decided to take the plunge. They took a couple of thousand miles to break in but if mounted and balanced properly (road force and tire/rim indexing), they are smooth and work well on the highway in Florida rain storms. After 6,000 miles of mixed driving, the only knock on these tires is, from my point of view, they are a bit noisier than I had expected. Other than that, I'd recommend them.

I currently have over 125k miles on the set. Excellent tread wear but noticed sidewall cracking at around 80k miles. This seems to be quite common with these tires. Could easily go another 10k miles except with winter approaching it's not worth the risk. The first 75k miles were driven in mountainous conditions with heavy rainfall and limited snow. The remaining miles have been mostly highway. Performed excellent in both wet and dry conditions, but has poor performance in even limited snow and ice. I will be replacing with same tire.

Put these tires on my wife's Olds. So far they are showing no sign of wear. They are excellent in the rain and dry, quiet with excellent traction. Equal to or better than the Michelin Primacy MXV4 they replaced. We got 65000+ out of the Primacies;we'll have to see longterm how these hold up.Ron Bridgestone Blizzaks WS70s in the winter here in Indiana/Michigan (excellent) so I can't rate them for winter driving.

These tires came with my car and I have driven on them for 16 months. Tires are very quiet, excellent handling on dry pavement. No significant loss of control on wet pavement. I got better gas mileage than I expected--especially on the highway. I love them all summer. I drive in the winter in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Western NY. Handling, acceleration and stopping distances are unacceptable under circumstances when there is ice on the road, especially when covered with a little snow or ice is wet. Nearly rear ended a couple of cars last winter even with Quattro and when ABS kicked in. If you get these tires for summer driving and live in a place where there is ice and snow in the winter, I suggest you do what I have done and get winter snow tires for the winter season.

These tires are highly effective in Colorado front range winter driving, which is about 75% dry roads, 25% ice and snow. They have a surprising amount of grip on packed snow and ice as at stoplight intersections. I drive to ski areas 1-2 times a week and, while not totally overcoming the laws of physics, they provide exceptional traction in winter weather conditions. Handling and comfort are similar to the ContiProContact all-season tires I use during the other three season, albeit with just a little more road noise.

We run these tires on my 87 BMW E30 which is setup for endurance racing. We run WRL, Chumpcar and 24 Hours of Lemons regularly. We have run the Rivals for the last 6 events with satisfaction. Have some experience with RT-615K and ZII in one size down but prefer the Rival for wear and good grip. Also the stiff sidewalls make for precise turning responsiveness. We did win a race at TWS on them so can't say enough good about them!!!

September 18, 2014

When I found these tires on TireRack.com in 2011, they were rated near the top of the On-/Off-Road All Terrain survey group, and the price was a real bargain compared to the other tire models which were also rated high in that group. They also had the design and construction features that I wanted -- I always do thorough online comparison research before I buy. The five tires that were delivered to me were all made in S. Korea -- the quality control was perfect as far as I could tell, and they all matched each other exactly, which doesn't always happen when ordering from online sources. The technicians at the tire service center that mounted them for me had clearly never seen anyone inspect new tires as thoroughly as I did before I declared them fit for installation. When I got to try them out on my 4 Runner, I was blown away by their performance in every way -- especially in rain, light snow, and ice traction. They were quiet and smooth riding, too. After three years and about 36,000 miles, these tires are still impressing me in every way, and they appear to have plenty of tread left for many more miles. So the only thing I don't get is why have they fallen so far in the reviews by 2014? What are people doing with their tires that they aren't as happy as I am with mine? These have been superior in every way for me, and I paid far less than other tires that I have had on this vehicle. To sum up, these are the best tires that I have ever owned in 35 years of driving -- 25 of those years in pickups and SUVs.

Hot Springs Village, AR. Curvy country roads. Lots of fun even in an SUV. Lexus RX-350 AWD. Got them in Feb 14. Saw a little light snow, had no problems. Light and heavy rain was also no problem. These tires are great. They go where you point them. They hold the road well. Are very quiet. Gives a good stable feeling. I used to be a Michelin man, but no more. After reading your reviews, I switched to these Continentals, and am very happy about it. Will update later after winter ice storms. Tires were delivered fast and installed at Jensen Tires in Hot Springs Village. Very pleased with them.

These tires are on a corvette i drive ocassionally. the only complaint is the white lettering on the tires has turned brown and wont wash or sand off. the tires handle and wear good for a 15" tire, even though its getting hard to find them. I may have to flip the tires over to blackwall even though its a hassle to do that....
