Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

Bought this tire for my move cross country. I debated btw a E load rated tire and this. This tire has a 2785 max load which is more than the normal 2600 on a standard load tire. I towed a 15,000 pounds trailer with 2K pounds of hitch weight and these tires didn't even flinch. Despite my tundra being heavily overloaded the tires were very controlled and drove...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

This is my second set. Used almost exclusively for track use. Bought the first set as replacements for Michelin PS2's. They wear longer and are more resistant to overheating for track use. I got 14 track days and 4 hours on the skidpad out of my first set before cords just started to show on the shoulders. At the suggestion of the Tire Rack and others I got...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

I have 90,000 miles on these tires and can go probably 5,000 more. Definitely the longest wearing tires I have ever had and I tow a horse trailer cross country. Noise is low and the ride is like a pillow. Never been stuck, just now getting a little slip at take off in the rain. Buying these tires is like getting a second pair free, since they last so long....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

My 2007 GMC Duramax dully had BF Goodrich TA that lasted 37k miles, my first set of of these michellen tires lasted 61,000 miles, and presently at 58,000 miles on my 2nd set of these tires. The only problem I had was on my first set, one of the tires tread and cover started to shift and the warranty replaced the defective tire. We pull 16,000 trailer with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

Great tire so far. As of today I would definitely buy again. I have only had this tire through the winter and it has performed flawlessly. I do a fair amount of towing the snowmobile trailer to different locations during the winter and this tire has easily out-performed my last (stock ??, BFG A/T KO, and Toyo M/T) three sets of tires. The BFG's were terrible...  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 Bridgestone Duravis R500 HD

I purchased these tires to make a cross country trip pulling a travel trailer. They had huge improvements over the Michelins that came with the truck new. No sidewall flex, the ride seams better, possibly since the tire remains closer to round when in contact with the pavement, but best is that they don't puncture as easily. When I took off the original...  Read More

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

I could have given it all 10 but excellence is somewhat subjective. The tires are OE on an F-150, XLT, EcoBoost, supercab, long box with Max trailering. I've exceeded the GVW (hehe, hehe) a few times, gently (using the word lightly) towed a loaded large UHAUL moving trailer, and drive it easy most of the time. The tires are have worn well without a rotation,...  Read More

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
