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. The steering is smooth and responsive, good on wet no slippage whatsoever,excellent on dry, i dont go off road but i have a set on a Toyota land cruiser Prado...  Read More

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

A New Look for Your MR2 Spyder

Name a fun, affordable and reliable mid-engine car? Sounds like a trick question, but the 2000-2005 Toyota MR2 Spyder hits that rare trifecta. WHEEL DIAMETER As you look at Spyder wheel options, you'll see wheels ranging in diameter from 15"-18". Although the Spyder can run 15", 16", 17" and 18" wheels, staying with a 15" wheel allows for broader tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

I put 4 new 265/75/16 load range E tires on my 2002 Ford Excursion 7.3 Diesel in October 2008. These were less expensive than most tires then and still are today. It is now almost 6 years later and these tires have over 67,500 miles on them with a few more thousand left to go on them. The vehicle was used on a 4 week trip to two a travel trailer cross...  Read More

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 Michelin LTX M/S2

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

Best Tires for the Toyota Sienna Minivan

The Toyota Sienna has been one of the most popular minivans for over a decade. It's no wonder, as the Sienna is a spacious, comfortable, safe and reliable vehicle with great resale value. If Toyota's family hauler of choice has a common complaint among many of its drivers, it is that many have found the Original Equipment tiresto be lacking. Two of the most...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I was actually tempted to buy a set of Pirelli P7 Cinturato tires because they had gotten good reviews in light snow and ice. I've been running Blizzaks for 17 years and they never failed me.I called Tire Rack to order a set of Blizzaks and they were sold out. These Yokohama Ice Guard 52c's were recommended by my sales rep, even though they were new this...  Read More

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
