Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

This is an incredible tire for the price. I caught them for $99 each from Tirerack and my local Firestone store mounted and balanced them at the Tirerack negotiated price, very reasonable. There is no noise at all, they ride very quietly, smoothly and responsively both around town and especially on the highway, even at 90 mph speeds. They have a very secure...  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 Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

Only have roughly 700 miles on these tires, but since I just drove through a snow storm from Iowa City to Chicago, I figured I could say a thing or two. First and fore most, these tires are far superior to the tires Acura installed when I purchased this vehicle new. Original tires were Michelin Primacy HXM4. The original tires had long tire wear (almost...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have had very good experience in the past with several Blizzak tires but the size I needed was not available for my 2016 Audi A6 FWD. So I bought the Michelin X-Ice. I was really looking forward to see how they worked. I feel they worked very good in light snow, slushy, and ice conditions. One day after a significant snowfall, maybe 7 inches I decided to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I purchased these Pirada SpecX's for my 2003 Murano solely based on the reviews I read here. I bought this vehicle new and they came stocked with Goodyear Eagles. Ride and traction and wear was average. I replaced them with a set of Michelins from Costco Tire. Wear and traction again average. The ride, not so much. They turned my SE into the ride of a pickup...  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

With the generous cargo capacity, all-time AWD and off-road performance, this vehicle is going to be in your garage for several years. But when it’s time to replace the...  Read More

Ready or Not Winter 2017 is Coming

Last winter definitely started out slowly, but eventually January came round and winter got serious. Are you living in the snowbelt and wondering how bad the winter of 2017 is going to be? Nobody really knows, but we do know it's coming. Do you need to run winter / snow tires? If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow, you should...  Read More

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

I am on my second set of these tires on my Land Cruiser and they are great tires. I put 70,000 on the first set but they were not called Defenders just LTX M/S. Tread life is amazing and they are tough tires and can't be destroyed. They are great in most conditions snow, sand and rain and if you get a nail in them they can be repaired because they are thick...  Read More

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

This is by far the best set of tires I have owned for my truck. My dad had the same set on his truck, and he finally replaced them after 80,000 miles and the tires still had 5/32 left. I've put 12,000 miles on my set so far, and they all still have 12/32 left. Can't beat the traction, I've driven through three foot snow storms in these, and I've yet to get...  Read More

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

Even though tire rack warned that these tires have a load range too high for my truck (load range E) which may create an uncomfortable ride, I'm happy with these tires. They're quiet, yet aggressive. I have yet to run them in snow, but I dont foresee any issues due to their performance in deep mud, wet grass, and gravel. My little Dakota has never been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I live in the mountains of Colorado at 8000ft. I drive over Berthoud Pass (11000ft) about 400 one way trips a year (I work in Denver). We don't (typically) have snow in June, July and August (that sticks), and the pass averages 390 inches of snow a year. These tires are bomb proof, but like anything, they don't make up for foolish choices. It'd be great if...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I was absolutely blown away by these tires on my 05 BMW 325i (which is a rear wheel drive car). I drove through snow and spotty ice with complete confidence as I could hear the tires gripping the snow and ice on what would typically be a white knuckle driving trip. The ultimate test was in a dumping of 12 inches which the plows eventually got off the roads...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Needed new replacements for my tried and true turbo Forester. After previously having BFG truck tires are loving how long they lasted and finding a fantastic price on TireRack.com, I was excited to be able to get this type of tire at such a awesome price! The difference in performance and grip was breath taking to say the least. Did great in the snow for a...  Read More

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

Had these BFG KO 2 on for just over 20k miles. I have been keeping them rotated and balanced per schedule and I am very happy with these tires. I really like the way these tires look on the Suburban also. I have not had the chance to drive in deep snow, being in the south, but dry, wet, dirt, mud, gravel, grass, etc these tires are outstanding. Tread wear...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is my second set of these tires in seven years. They are awesome. I still had plenty of tread life left in the front but the back tires were worn down so I opted for a complete set. You cannot get a better set of tires. I do drive aggressively at times and these tires hold true. They grip the road like summer tires in warm weather and maintain traction...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Original tires were BFG Trail TA which were absolute junk. I replaced them with Bridgestone AT Revo's which are an amazing tire for this truck. I could go through snow and ice without having to use four-wheel-drive whereas the BFG's I had to use for four wheel drive in the same conditions. The only drawback with the AT Revo's is I could barely get 30,000...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I just turned over 40K on a set of duratracs for my F150. I am very impressed. I would estimate I have another 10-15K left on this set. They are getting bit loud as expected for an agressive AT tire with some wear.Snow traction is awesome. I can back up my driveway (which is on a hill) in 2wd. I couldn't do that with the stockers. I read alot of reviews...  Read More

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

Got these tires for my 4runner, which I drive probably 90% on the highway, and I drive them very hard both on and off road. Right now at 15,000 miles in they still have 50% tread and are still running smooth. They were a little difficult to balance at first but when balanced well they are very smooth. They handle everything I could throw at them amazingly....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I had my mind made up on buying a set of BF Goodrich all terrain ta/ko's when I came across the wrangler dura trac. I like the aggressive look of the dura trac, a number of the reviews I read people commented that they had the ta/ko's before and liked the dura trac better and the dura trac was priced better. I have only had the new tires about 3000 miles and...  Read More
