My old tires were BF Goodrich "p215/45zr18". They were extremely noisy. I did a little research looking for a nice quiet tire which had some snow capability. I finally decided on this tire. It was taken on a long trip of over 2000 miles and it handled very well...and they are "finally" a quiet tire compared to the BF Goodrich tires I replaced. I hope they remain as quiet as they are now. I can hear the radio.

If you drive in winter condition you need these tires! When the decision came between (my previous experience with) the Michelin X Ice and the Blizzak, I referred to Tire Racks review and Tires Rack salesman Dean. I cannot relate how much better these tires perform as a dedicated winter tire. The biggest difference was in traction while turning. Exceptional tire. I hope and expect to get 4 more years service from current set.

I have been extremely pleased with these tires. The tread wear for an SUV is amazing. I plan to replace these before winter so that I have good snow traction, but who knows how many more miles they could go. These tires are quiet and perform well in all conditions. The only comment was that they needed to be force balanced initially. The only tire I would buy again.

I just drove over 100 miles in the rain at 70mph. No problems with hydroplaning at all. Great wet weather traction! Good smooth ride on the highway at 60-80mph. Not sure what the speed rating is, but I didn't want to push it with the family in the car. They feel slightly mushy at low speeds under 40mph, but I've never lost traction. These are the best bang for the buck for a Toyota Yaris with 185 60 15 size tires

Have been very satisfied with my now second set of Kumho Solus KR 21 tires. They deliver a comfortable ride with reliable handling in dry, wet, and even snowy conditions. I once drove 500 miles through blizzard-like conditions on plowed highways at almost regular highway speeds and my car handled remarkably well. No loss of control. Good traction.
This tire not only provides a confident driving experience in all seasons, but my fuel economy remained the same at 50mpg (sometimes improved to 54mpg), the tire noise was minimal, and they are a great value. My first set of Kumho's lasted 78,000 miles; my second set 45,000 miles. Not sure why the difference, but I am still a satisfied driver and plan to buy my third set.

I put Goodyear Fuelmax tires on my Toyota Camry Hybrid. My immedediate response was relief that the Fuelmax also provided a great feel and ride. I was concerned what trade offs I had made with purchasing a new series tire before user reviews were very available. I drive a hybrid and am not looking for sport handling or track performance. These tires feel secure both on wet and dry pavement. The ride and road feel are as good as I have had on any previeous tire, EL-400 on this car and a line of Michelins on other cars. My mileage did not drop a bit, to my surprise. The worn out OEM tires had low roling resistance due to most of the tread being gone. And with most of the tread being gone, you actually get more revs per mile which registers more miles on your odometer. This makes a worn tire appear to get further improved gas mileage. So with the Fuelmax I was thrilled to record the same 42 mpg that I have been getting all summer in my Camry. I really am waiting to see the winter driving performance. I will provide an update as soon I get some winter weather to put them to the test.

The Best Run-Flat Tire for Your Passenger Car: Bridgestone's DriveGuard

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by Gary Stanley

Imagine you're on a family vacation traveling with your spouse and children. After a long day of activities, you are heading back to the hotel for some relaxation. The whole family is tired and just ready to get out of the car. Just a few more miles on this busy highway and you'll be there. Suddenly, you hear the sound of a tire blowout.   

With conventional tires, the above scenario involves pulling over to the shoulder and calling for help. You are stuck until help arrives. Or if you were prepared enough to have checked your spare tire's pressure and savvy enough to change your own flat tire, you could attempt to install the replacement yourself. Even a car enthusiast will realize that changing a spare on the shoulder of a busy highway at night is far from ideal.  

Instead, you now have a choice. You can either choose to pull over, or you can continue driving for up to 50 miles at 50 mph. Wouldn't you rather drive your family to safety and simply deal with the problem when it's more convenient? With the new Bridgestone DriveGuard, you get to make that choice!

The ability to decide what's best for you is what having a run-flat tire is all about. In the past, most run-flat tires were stiff riding, fast wearing summer-only tires that were designed for use on a short list of specific vehicles. This is not the case when it comes to the new Grand Touring All-Season tire from Bridgestone. It offers a great ride, all-season traction and a 60,000-mile treadwear warranty. 

Thanks to mandatory tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) on most newer vehicles, you can use the Bridgestone DriveGuard on many common 2008 and newer passenger cars like the Ford Fusion, Honda Civic, Honda Accord, VW Jetta, Toyota Camry and Toyota Corolla. Shop by vehicle to see if the DriveGuard is recommended for your car.

I hear a lot of complaints about the noise from these tires. I previously had Michelin's on the Camry. I put these Firehawks on when the Michelin's wore out. These tires are very quiet and have a comfortable ride. When you hit a corner hard they get loud almost like they are grabbing the road. I hit a 90 degree turn at 90 mph in my Camry with these tires and not even a squeal. They are very aggressive at grabbing the road. When you drive in the rain they put a mist shower behind you. For the money these tires are great if you want a high performance tire. They feel like a cheaper version of the Bridgestone Potenza to me which I had on my Accord. I couldn't be more pleased with these tires. the only complaint is they seem to wear down a little quick but that is expected with this type of tire. Generally only get 30-40 thousand miles from an aggressive tire like this. So in conclusion if you are an easy Sunday driver then look at another tire you wont be happy with this one. If you like to drive and play on the curvy roads and are looking for good value for your dollar buy these Firehawks.

I bought these tires based on a friend's advice and on different surveys, rugged terrains have so far exceeded my expectations. They are great on the wet, excellent on light snow, very good on ice.
I go off-roading on the weekends, never had an issue.
I guess some people got mixed between the rugged trails and rugged terrains. launched two years ago;Impossible to buy them five years earlier as some reviewers said.
they were the best all around tires I have ever used, and would highly recommend them.
I would rank them in all weather mild off road category, rather than all Terrain.
in all cases they are much better than the all terrain Yoko's which I replaced and which became obsolete after 15.000 miles.

I live at 7,000 feet in Colorado on a dirt road (and 100 yd gravel driveway.) We've just been through one of the most extreme winters in decades, with -27 temps and plenty of snow. My wife (a nature photographer) and I also drive extensively around the USA, often in bad weather and to... unusual :) destinations.

These tires have been incredibly wonderful, restoring the sense of rock-solid reliability on any road surface or weather conditions that I used to get in our old Subaru Impreza. I did notice a small MPG hit compared to the OEM tires, perhaps 2mpg, but that's a price I am willing to pay.

Now after 35k miles, I am sensing the tires will not come close to the 80k mile warranty. That would be sad, but I'm not willing to give up the performance for more mileage. I'd rather be able to drive safely and avoid sliding into a ditch or another vehicle :)

We first bought these tires for my wife's Toyota Yaris. These tires have a bead saver type edge/sidewall and they rubbed on her plastic wheel covers causing a squeak noise on slow speed turns. Kind of annoying. When taking off the snow tires this spring I installed them on the aluminum rims on our Neon and the squeak noise is gone. If you have wheel covers you might choose a different tire.
These tires drive great, they have real good wet traction and have a smooth quiet ride. Minimal wheel weights were used to balance them. This is the start of the second summer for them and they have very little tread wear showing yet.

Two winters in New England (MA) have sold me on the capacity of this tire to perform above and beyond. My RAV 4 is two wheel front drive and I travel to a game preserve to run my dogs every morning. It is an unplowed road. These tires have convinced me that I do not need an all wheel drive model unless I move to Maine, New Hampshire or Vermont. Yok's are the best tire for the money in any category in my view.

I drive mostly on highway and country roads. We fish on beaches In Riverhead NY, and Cupsogue Bch, NY. The Wrangler tires performed excellent. I did not have to air down. I drive on farm land during the hunting seasons on an upstate farm - tires performed well and needed 4WD only on muddy or snowy situations. I got a bug to replace the Wranglers with "regular road" tires for highway, I went to Michelin. My thinking was I do little miles on the beach and farm, and we don't get many heavy snow storms on Long Island so I went for the Mich. all season tire. Bad idea. The Mich. do OK on the Northfork stony beach but on the fine sand Cupsogue Ocean beach I can bog down in the sand - soup-like spots. With the Wranglers I mushed through the very soft spots. With the Mich. I bog down to dead slow just going nice and slow until the sand gets a little "stiffer". I never had to air down with the Wranglers. If I air downed with the Mich, it would be better but I am getting lazy. The Mich. on the slightest mud are terrible on the farm. The slightest amount of mud, the threads fill and the truck slips terribly. Sometimes I have to go to 4WD low. In snow (farm) the Mich. are barely acceptable, if I didn't have 4WD I would get stuck for sure. O.K., I understand the Wrangler and Mich. have different tread designs. I didn't think the travel in sand, a little bit of mud or a little snow on the farm would bring my truck to a stop. I knew I would pay a price for the all season highway tread, I didn't know how big of a price. It was a bad move on my part. The Mich are a very good highway tires but not a combination (the all season) tire no matter how few miles I travel on the sand and farm to meet my needs. When I have to retire the truck I'm going back to the Wranglers. (Comment, over the past 50 years of driving on beaches and farms in all kinds of 4WD from Jeeps to pickups, the 4runner is my favorite, it is a billy goat that never breaks down.)

Initial Review, 13,000 Miles on Tires
February 10, 2014

I must say that my love for these tires prompted me to write this post. I've had them for 13k miles now, through summer heat, heavy rain, 6-12" snow and on ice. These tires are great on a Toyota Venza. The original Good Year tires were ok but noisy, they also weren't as good in rain/snow/ice. When I put the parada spec-x on I was pleasantly surprised. What a difference in noise, much quieter!

RAIN: I also drove through a heavy rain/thunderstorm (yellow / red on radar), going about 50-55 on highway and not a slip! Hands down best tires I've ever driven in the rain!

SNOW: During the latest snow storm here in NE I decided to head up to Wachusett in the thick of it to take advantage of the snow day (12-18" of new snow, how can you not!). I drove on snow covered roads in up to 6 inches of snow at times & even over the plow buildup (12-18") on the highway... they were very predictable and impressed me. They got us to & from the mountain safely and we had a most excellent day of skiing!

ICE: I must also mention that on two occasions this winter I was taking corners and hit black ice. I could feel the car sliding towards the edge but I didn't panic & was able to keep from sliding off the ramp.

THE NEGATIVE: I have to be thorough so I need to mention that I too have a SLIGHT balancing problem around 70-75 mph but I wonder if these 20" rims are harder to balance or if it's the balancing machine the dealership uses. These tires also have huge sipes which is probably why they have great wet/snow traction but I frequently find small rocks stuck in them.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Buy them! I highly recommend these tires!

Unacceptable vibrations at highway speeds since new. Have had them rebalanced by two different shops and moved them to a second set of wheels and the problem persists. Do a search online and you'll find it's a common complaint about these.

Other than the vibration they are fine tires. Not as good as the Pilot Sport A/S, but cheaper.

If it wasn't for the balancing problem I'd recommend them as a good bang/buck.

Sadly, I just got rid of this car, and did not have the time to swap out tires. I wouldn't call these tires Ultra, more touring that performance actually. Turn in is a bit soft, but if you go aggressively, they catch up and dig in. Very good ride, minimal noise. I didn't really use these in the winter, put on new in April, and traded the car just last month. Fantastic and predictable, even in deep rain from downpours. The best part was wear. No noticeable wear at all after 12k miles. My new car is a 2011 Camry with these same size tires. The Michelins that came with the car reminded me of how much I loved the new Yokahama. The Michelins taught me a good lesson in that latest downpour, they aren't very good at all. I will be buying a new set of these Yokahamas next year for the Camry.

Had almost no snow or ice this winter but lots of rain. As expected these tires handled the rain without issue. Superior wet weather performance.

After two mid-Atlantic winters these tires impress for their relative quiet, smoothness and overall competence on dry and wet roads. My mpg suffers only a little. I still have 12/32 tread on all 4 tires. Wear has been even, keeping the pressure at 38 to 40 psi.

Just (Mar 28, 2012) took them off for the summer. Put on a set of Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology on my OEM wheels.
