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

These came with the truck new, replaced the same around 26,000 miles. Replaced the second set around 56,000. Replacing the 3rd set at 111,000 miles. Do not hold up! BUT I'm in stone construction business. Usually dealing with a lot of weight in truck (up to 7000#) and/or towing a bobcat and dumping trailer, (up to 10 tons). So take that with a grain of salt...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

Driving an AWD vehicle from Buffalo to Va Beach Monthly. I have definitely used these Set of tires on all Conditions. Bought the tires last Feb. During the first trip to NY from VA and passing thru the PA mountains were Horrible. The Snow was 8 to 12 deep and sum icy spots also. The Roads were closed to Tractor Trailers, My car easy took on any Snow covered...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek AT20

I don't understand why this tire gets bad reviews. They are standard on my 4Runner, and were on my 2004 4Runner. I was going to switch for the (In my opinion) best SUV tire made, the Goodyear Silent Armour, however after a few miles I decided to wait until a replacement is needed. The recent heavy rain in CA was no problem, I have been to the snow twice, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

Much better than the Goodyear SR-A tires that came on the Jeep. Our ranch is 23 acres of up, down, and sideways, but there isn't any place on it we can't go whenever we want to. They also anchor the Jeep better when winching than the SR-A's did. On the highway, they're very quiet, even with a soft top. They do seem to hurt the gas mileage some, but the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is an update on my review from April 2014 with 35k miles on the tires. Since then: - We drove 6000 miles all over the western USA, including a trip from Colorado to Seattle while pulling a trailer (yes, on a Prius - worked fine!)- Probably partially due to the above, plus the fact that we drive on dirt/gravel much of the time, the tires did get down to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival

These tires have been run for nearly a whole season now of monthly and bi-weekly autocross with the only significant highway mileage going to and from the autocrosses. I have several cars to drive so each seems to have it's own purpose. This RX8 is a dedicated autocrosser but not a trailer queen by any means. These tires have been to one national Tour and...  Read More

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

On my 3rd set of these tires on my 2004 Ford F350 SuperDuty 4x4. Lots of heavy towing (8000-10,000lbs trailers) and loads, gravel roads, tons highway and city driving and all have lasted 70k plus miles with regular rotation.I drive these tire fast and hard and they make my truck drive like a sports car. I have tried other national brans but no other...  Read More

A Simple Guide to UTQG

Often times, customers ask about the UTQG rating on tires. The UTQG ratings were designed to provide consumers with useful information to help them purchase tires based on their relative treadwear, traction and temperature capabilities. Treadwear is a rating on how long the tire should last; the higher the number, the longer the life of the tire in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE

Good wet traction which at the time was a high priority. I have dedicated winter tires, so haven't had the opportunity to evaluate their snow traction. Good treadwear, considering they are used on a pickup which spends a good deal of time towing a fifth wheel trailer which puts a lot of load on the tires. Reasonable price. Probably would not buy these again...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

I tow 3tons daily. So lets get to it. From standing start on a hill w/trailer, no slip where other tires have. Secure in rain at 60mph in a turn w/trailer. With 700lb tongue weight never had problem in snow. And when I need to brake; SAFE! Mileage has been bested with about 17K (one manufacturer only lasted 6k) and higher mpgs on Generals. I've tried many...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Long Trail T/A Tour

One of the best tires that I have owned. They have lasted over 50,000 miles and still have tread remaining. I have driven in all conditions from coast to coast and everywhere in between. They handle well in rain, snow, and clear weather. They have been good on the highway, in the city, and towing a light trailer. I am not a brand loyalist to any maker but I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Great tire for a great price . Traction is not an issue even at 20k miles these tires are on a farm truck that gets used everywhere, on and off the road highway and heavy towing. I pull a fully loaded trailer weighing 18k less the truck in and out of fields seasonally and traction is never an issue . Will probably get another 10 -15k out of them before...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I drove three Winter seasons on my Blizzak DM-V1s. I kept them at the factory recommended 33 PSI cold inflation pressure. I'm not much of a speeder, but I tend to take what my nephews call high-G turns. I tow a boat and trailer that weigh slightly less than 3,000 pounds all Winter; if it's above freezing and I can get on the water somewhere, I go. I've used...  Read More

Trailer Tires Offered at Tire Rack

Now is the time of year to get our campers, RVs and utility trailers out of storage and ready for summer trips. Before hitting the road, you need to look at the tires' wear and age. You'll also need to see if there are any bubbles, tread separations or cracks. Our experience has been that when properly stored and cared for, most street tires have a useful...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

So this is my second set. I put 70000 on the first set and the right rear developed a slow leak. Went to the local Firestone dealer and he said these tires need to be replaced. I said they have plenty of tread. He said after 4 years the side walls have had too much sun and wear. You do not want a blow out at 80 mph. These tires have been driven close to 100...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Transforce AT

I am a transporter and today I am at the Firestone store having another set of Transforce A/T's installed on my truck. In the past 6 months I put 70,000 miles on the tires and they never once let me down with excellent traction in all weather conditions. I pull a 20ft trailer usually loaded with 7,000 lbs on it and they work great - quiet and smooth ride,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE

Got these tires on my Yukon when I bought it. The tires were obviously not new. I remember about half the tread remained when I bought the car. Amazingly, It took twice as long as I thought it would to get to the wear bar on these! I put 40,000 HARD miles on these tires, with half their tread. I tow a trailer, I go off-roading, i commute, I work out of this...  Read More

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

So I really researched the heck out of what tire was right for my 4x4 tacoma. We live at 6000 ft and can get up to a foot of snow at a time in winter. We needed a fairly aggressive tire tread for winter. But I also was weary of tire noise and the mileage hit you get with some AT tires. This tire hit the sweet spot. I had to back up a fairly steep incline on...  Read More

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

Ok, so I'm a woman and not heavy into tire culture and definitely not an expert. I've bought probably about 10 sets of tires in my life and have always driven pickup trucks since I was a teenager. Live in Florida, so I have no snow knowledge. I do drive through a lot of pouring rain & standing water. I don't off road in the sense that I make a sport out of...  Read More
