Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

My Toyota Rav4 2006 Sport V6 originally came with Bridgestone Dueller tires. I had to replace them by 35,000 miles, which are not exactly a long lasting set of tires. Perhaps you thought I drive really hard and all City driving. That could be it except I was able to get 95,000 miles out of my Yokohama Parada Spec X tires! Just a quick review. As you can...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A

I am 29 years old. I drive a Nissan Xterra. I am aggressive (safely) when I drive. These tires have been great. 90% of the time, I am on highway/city roads. I also drive to and through some cool places off/road. I would definitely purchase these tires again, the reason that I will not be is because I have to drive a lot on the highway. These tires are great...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

In October, I bought a set of Destination LE2 tires for our 2011 Toyota Highlander (AWD). These tires are by far the best I've ever owned (on any car or truck) and have transformed this Highlander which came with Toyo Open Country as OEM tires. I have 6000 miles on them on Arizona highways and South Dakota snow and ice. On dry roads it is like the car is on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

Just got the tires, and it snowed the day after they were mounted. Parking lot figure eights found them to be very controllable and make good use of the Toyota 4wd. Tires are stable and responsive at highway speeds, and quiet for snow tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

OE tire was Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza. They only lasted about 30K. I went with the Michelin LTX M/S2 as I have had good luck with these on my 98 Toyota 4 Runner in the past. These Michelins will not disappoint. They are Expensive in most sizes but getting over 75K miles of wear makes it worth it to me. The only negative is some cosmetic cracking in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I have just put the 3 set of Kumhos on the Sonata. They are great tires at a great price. Though the snow traction could be a little better, I have no complaints on the handling, traction or wear.
