Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Knowing that I am making a definite trade off in handling for better winter weather traction, I am quite pleased. Going from a lower profile M+S sport touring tire to a Winter/snow tire is very much (in my case) going from the feel of a sport/touring car to that of a small (yet capable) pick-up truck/SUV. Pushing hard, in conditions that my other tires would...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have survived seven PA winters using performance all-season tires but knew it was just a matter of time before my Mustang got stuck and left me out in the cold. I did my research and opted for a set of WS80 Blizzaks for my factory rims and purchased a set of new wheels / tires for the rest of the year.My previous set of tires were Michelin Pilot Sport A/S...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

2002 Park Avenue with WS80 Blizzak...also see my 2000 Park ave ws70 Blizzak review.My wife needs ice tires this runs more highway freeway and metro streets stop n go lights etc, but also needs to get through deep snow at times. We got rid of X ice 2's (they were used with Buick rims from an old dealer)... a good ice tire but Blizzak has the winter edge. the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Had the previous generation Verde (not Plus) on my previous Mercedes MLs. Moved up a size to the GL, and immediately after purchase took off the factory run-flat tires, replacing them with the Verde Plus. Extremely happy with them. I don't cut corners - the size is a touch too large (285 vs. 275) for the vehicle but that's part of what needs to be done. Ride...  Read More

i put over 100000 miles on tires and still had tread left. rotated every 3000 to 6000 miles. pulled nails out of tread on all four tires during life time never a flat tire. bought four new tires six months a go still look brand new. I pull a pontoon boat and compact tractor with this truck and put 40000 miles a year on truck. hope this tire is still in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I did a lot of research before purchasing these tires. I previously had Blizzaks on my old truck but went with these as I could buy the rims and tires for the price of the Blizzaks. I prefer them, and I never thought I would.I love these tires! It usually only snows a few times a year but when it does we need to be able to get around as they don't plough the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

Purchased these tires for my Prius Touring (I liked the regular tire size better than the touring so had them swapped to the 15in rims) while living in the PacNW for harsh winter driving to and from work. Tires were abused on logging roads,(yup went hunting in a prius and got funny looks from lifted truck drivers...) excelled in warm wet environments, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SR-A

This is the tire the truck came with from the factory. I am the only diver of this vehicle. I usually drive for maximum fuel economy; accelerate and brake slow and drive faster than most when cornering but am not driving so fast that I squeal the tires in corners. It occasionally pulls a lightweight aluminum fishing boat and occasionally hauls heavy loads in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A Spec

I bought these three years ago along with a new set of rims. Shipping from Tirerack was great, and I loved that they came inflated, on the rims. I just slapped them on the car. They handled well, I always felt like they performed great. They are now producing a wumpwumpwump sound at medium speeds, so I'm thinking about replacing them. They still have 3/32...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I replaced the OEM tires with these DWS Extreme. First week, I hated it. The ride and handling doesn't seem right. It turns out I need to have qualified tire center to mount and balance. A co-worked told me to go to a performance shop to have it remount and balance with a Hunter road force balance machine. The ride and handling is much better (almost like a...  Read More

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

I upgraded my 08 Sierra with 18 inch wheels and these tires from the factory size rims and factory tires. I had a set of the Revo's (First gen) on my last truck and really liked them so I wanted to try them again. Overall I have no complaints, good ride, great traction, great wear (with rotation every 6,000 miles and air check every 3,000) The only downside...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

Purchased four of these tires for an old 1995 Subaru Impreza L AWD daily driver. My main concerns for new tires was superior snow/ice handling, acceptable/above average wet handling, and above average dry traction with a great tread-life while keeping prices low. After I did extensive research and comparison charts I purchased the Firestone Precision Touring...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic LT

I purchased these tires pre-mounted on new alloy rims and had them studded by tire rack. What a difference all around. My truck is only 2 wheel drive and with the 6.0 liter V8 had huge traction problems in snow and ice. Now it will climb the dirt road hill near my home no matter what is on the ground, I can go places that many front wheel drive cars can't...  Read More

Raise Ride Height and Go Big with Traxda Lift and Level Kits

"How big of a tire can I install on my truck?" This question is one I receive on almost a daily basis. While each truck is different and some can occasionally accept taller tires with the factory suspension in place, the easiest way to insure proper fitment of a taller or wider tire is to increase the amount of travel between the top of the tire and fender...  Read More
