All-New Goodyear Endurance Trailer Tires are Made in the USA

Another winter season is behind us and temperatures are rising enough that many enthusiasts are getting their warm-weather toys out for summertime fun. Whether you own a boat, jet skis, ATVs, race cars or dirt bikes, you probably own a trailer that you use to transport these vehicles.   While checking the condition of your trailer, be sure to take some time...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

I've just had a set of BFG Allterrain KO2 put on my 2015 Ram 1500 4X4. One of my Goodyear Wrangler SRA split across the face of the tread while I was on a well maintained mainroad logging road. I went to this size because I wanted a 10 ply tire for towing as when I am loaded up I'm a little over 14000lbs between the trailer and the truck. So far these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T RH-S

These Bridgestone Dueler AT RH-S tires came stock from the factory (P265/65R18 OWL) on my 2009 Silverado Z71 crew cab. Overall, during 51,000+ miles and 6 years, I would rate them as maybe a little better than average. These tires have never pulled a trailer or hauled a load in the bed, and they've been used 50% city/40% highway/10% gravel. I am a stickler...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I've had these tires for about a month. I live in the Pacific Northwest and in the last month, we have had below freezing weather (icy roads), heavy rain, 8 of snow (rare for us), and slush. These Defenders did great in all these conditions - even on hills in the snow. AWD helps but I doubt the stock OEM Goodyear Forteras would have performed the same. I had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Had 3 sets of these tires on 3 different vehicles. Won't buy anything else. Don't go mudding or rock crawling but tow a boat/motor/trailer package that goes about 2,900 lbs. on some sand and gravel roads and launch and recover at some slick ramps. Have also gone on 6,000+ mile road trips with them. Why these particular tires? Control. No hydroplaning when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

just had some icy conditions so I can do my full review. first of all ride quality cant be better and no noise at all. second, basically no tread wear in 20,000 miles an it was a super hot summer and I pulled my trailer a fair amount. I was on the fence about getting blizzaks for winter but decided not too and it was the right choice because we had some icy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Excellent Winter tires. If you live in the upper Midwest and above and own a Truck or SUV, these tires are a best buy if you need to drive in the snow. You can't beat the price and the snow traction. I was able to drive faster than conditions would otherwise allow without even a hint of loss of traction in the deep snow with these tires. For my wife's...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I mostly tow a motorcycle trailer on the highway. Over 50,000 miles and still tread left. Handles well on the mountain roads. Original tires lasted 40,000 miles. Michelin Latitude HP tour lasted 30,000 miles. These LTX tires are great. Recently put them on my wife's Edge. No complaints with these tires. Drove 8 hours through a tropical storm on the highway...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I put 4 of these Michelins on my F-350when the previous Firestone Destination tires wore out after 40K miles. The primary use of this truck is pulling our 13,000 lb. toy hauler. I found these Michelins to be very stable and solid pulling the trailer and forgiving when the trailer is not attached. They are quiet and responsive and although they have not seen...  Read More

My Tire's Sidewall is Bulging. Now What?

A break, bulge or bubble in the sidewall of your tire is typically the result of an impact that damaged the tire casing's fabric reinforcing plies. This means only thin layers of rubber remains to contain air inside the tire. Replacing the tire as soon as possible is the best path forward. If you have road hazard coverage, this should be a covered event. Tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Radial 857

These tires de-laminated in less than 2000 miles < 2 years. Sidewall separation.. 19' trav. trailer <3000 GVW. Stored indoors. Fortunately I caught it before total failure.. Unfortunately, it's the only 14 load range D tire I could find. If possible, I would steer clear of these. Some searching found this to be a common failure.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I roll these tires on both my Audi Q7 and my VW Touareg. When I first swapped my tires to these in the VW, my wife looked at me and asked if it was normal to feel such a ride difference in the tires. From even the passenger seat, the ride difference is noticeable. From the driver's seat, each car became a whole new experience in driving. Admittedly, going...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

In the past I always would purchase the Bridgestone Revo's on one ton trucks vans ETC. This tire has far exceeded my expectations. It is very quiet for a truck of this size, the ride is so much better. Most of the time I have a trailer being pulled behind with another car on it.Very confident handling, I have not tried them in snow yet, but looking at the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

This is my 2nd set of these tires, my 1st set was on a 98 Tacoma and I got a little over 100k out of those tires. So I bought a new Tundra and drove straight to Good Year and had the BFG's taken off and had a new set of Duratrac's put on and it changed the dynamics of the truck during corning, and felt more stable on the highway. I currently have 97k on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

Came with the van and I got over 70,000 miles on the set before picking up a metal shard. I pull a 2400 pound trailer with the van and the tires have not shown and extra wear pattern. I rotate them every 10,000 miles. I keep the pressure at 34PSI in all tires. I have no complaints with these tires. If I was not pulling a trailer all over the Midwest I would...  Read More

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

Great tire so far. Used on 2013 Toyota 4Runner Limited with All Wheel Drive (torsen center differential) and 17 inch SR5 wheels for better off road performance than the stock 20 inch rims. The tires exhibited good hiway performance in wet and dry conditions no hydroplaning at speed limit (70 to 75 mph) in heavy rains on interstates. Predictable response...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

This is the 2nd set that I have purchased for my truck. I have to say that these have been the best set of tires I have ever had on any car or truck I have owned. The tread life is incredible, I rarely need to use 4WD when we get snow, when I go camping in the mountains we simply load up everything and head on up without any worries, and I have even taken it...  Read More

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

I drive 40k + miles annually. Drive 70 mph to the job location, pulling trailers, then all day off road in the muddy and sandy fields while pulling 14k trailers, then back home at 70 again. Tires have 77,000 miles on them currently and i still have a 1/4 inch of tread. During hunting season I drive my truck like an atv through the rocky river bottoms and up...  Read More
