Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

- Only a person with lots of money to spend can afford to buy cheap tires, because when the tires fail or wear out prematurely, They can afford to go out and buy more tires. However, the average working person with a mortgage, car payment, children in school, braces, and the like, has to buy tires that will last, because they can't afford to go out and keep...  Read More

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

Have driven over 1 million miles in Toyota's. Best traction tire I have ever owned. Literally pulled a stuck 4x4 Chevy with a 16 foot trailer out of deep wet snow without slipping a tire. Backed an unloaded truck thru a 3 foot snow drift into the barn. Have over 33000 miles on the tires and still have at least 1/3 tread left. Loaned my truck to my brother...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

We had 56,000 miles on the OEM Goodyear tires and the Toyota dealer was pushing the same tires as a replacement. I decided to go with Tire Rack and the Continentals and I am really glad I did. These are quite, and really improve the ride and handling of our Prius. The Goodyears were hard, noisy, and not at all as sure-footed as these; wet or dry. We even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Enhance C/X

I have Sumitomo tires on 2 vehicles, presently--a Porsche 911 and Toyota Highlander. I am purchasing another set for 3 rd vehicle. I am very pleased with the tires--despite some garage mechanics disparaging the brand. The Highlander is used for extended hockey trips and does 10 to 13 hours at sustained high speeds fully loaded--without any glitches. The...  Read More

Do you or a spouse travel on business? Maybe you have a child just learning to drive or perhaps leaving for their first year of college. If you do, you certainly want what we all want: for them to be as safe as possible. Bridgestone spent a decade developing a tire for just these types of situations.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Put this on Labor Day weekend on my 2006 Azera. I've racked up 12,000 miles on them so far. Love these tires. They are incredible in the rain and going through ponding on roadways. I use this car to commute 110 miles a day to work. They have been great at road holding, corning, comfort and grip. This is a large high output V-6 front driver and though you can...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar I/T G072

I have 4 of these dedicated snow tires on my '08 Subaru Tribeca whenmost of my contemporaries run All Season tires. I have a very short steep driveway and live in the southern Allegheny region of Central Pennsylvania. My driveway also has a northern exposure so it does not melt as quickly as someof my neighbors driveways do. i have great confidence in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Bought my 2009 Toyota Camry with the original tires. I was having problems for the first 2 winters until I bought the Michelin X ice. I would recommend this tire since I put the wheels on my car I had not problem at all. Sam. M Connecticut   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

With these tires on our Toyota Prius, we were able reach our mountain destination despite snow&ice conditions. A major snowstorm with freezing temps resulted in several inches of snow on top of ice on the highway. At the first uphill grade, the traffic was stopped due to the lack of traction. We were able to weave around all the stalled vehicle including...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

These replaced Toyo A20's. Had the Toyo's previously and was unimpressed. We had an ice storm right after the purchase of the vehicle- felt like I was on skis. I read a lot about the Alenza's and decided to make the switch. I got an ok trade-in from a local tire company and that took some of the purchase anxiety out of the equation.These are a significant...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

Just replaced a set of Michelin Latitude tires for my 2003 Toyota Sequoia. Most likely would have obtained another 25K miles, however one of my tires experienced a significant cut which penetrated to the steel belts. I elected to replace my Michelins with Continentals which are similarly rated and at approximately $50 less per tire.   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 change from the OEM Bridgestone Dueler that are basiclly the worst tires for this vehicle, to these bread on butter Firestone destination LE2 tire. This tire made the car change from good to best.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

While 95+% of my driving has been done on the highway I can't believe the mileage I have got out of these OEM tires. I'm at over 70K miles with still 4-5/32nds still remaining. I was initially looking to move to Bridgestone Dueler Ecopia 422's, but this mileage is making me think twice.Road noise has obviously increased as the wear is getting down there, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Winter Slalom KSI

Our Toyota Highlander V6 AWD has always been a good winter vehicle. Excellent in all wintertime driving conditions from glare-ice to a foot or more of deep snow. I drive about 75 miles rt for work each day, mostly expressway driving in Michigan's snow belt. Last winter (2013) was a bad winter so this year I went with as set of winter tires for the first...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I don't go off road, so didn't want all terrain tires. the stock Goodyear SRA's are just junk, very dangerous in rain, so I didn't even wanna see what snow would be like. I have always been a big believer in winter dedicated tires for winter months. Put the proper dedicated tires on for what the environment calls for, you only have 4 small contact patches of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Tires used 6 seasons so far and will probably use again next year. Mileage listed is approximate. Studded. Traction is incredible. This year was a great year to have them and after 5 previous seasons I was not afraid to drive anywhere under any conditions. Highly recommend studs for packed snow and ice. There is no comparison. These tires should be mandatory...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HT RH12

I am a long-time fan of Hankook tires, but this is my first experience with this particular (SUV/Truck) model. I had these installed on my Toyota RAV-4 after much comparison to other premium brands. Absolutely no regrets. I've found them to be excellent performers and an outstanding value! They provide a very smooth and quiet ride, with great hydroplane...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Recently we put on 4 new Premier tires to replace the <4/32s worn Primacy MXV4s on our 2012 Toyota Camry XLE. While I had concerns about the 8.5/32s new tire tread depth on the Premiers, the installer pointed out these tires have sipes that both appear during tread wear and go down fully to under 2/32s which other tires don't have. We average over 15k mi/year on this car with a 60/40 balance of highway/city miles. So far in over 1600 miles of mostly freeway driving I am very satisfied with the Premiers. Mine are NOT noisy as some have complained about. Handling is excellent; I've only had 30 miles of driving in heavy rain but they did fine. I've noticed a slight hit to gas mileage almost not measurable but it may be down a few percent (normally get right at the Toyota EPA 35 mpg on the freeway and it's varied from around 37 to 32 the past 2 tanks of mostly highway driving which seems a bit low based on conditions). I will reserve judgement on winter handling and see if I can add to this review in December - for now just put N/A on winter driving. I hope to get 50k miles on these 60k mi rated tires.   Read More
