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 LTX M/S2

Forget the ratings and the mileage. I had to put in something to tell this story. Just bought them. Wow! WOW! Just amazed at the difference the quietness, smooth and soft ride. Handling is so good. Rude the noise level on a scale of 1-10 to a 11 on quietness and smoothness. It's like a new truck. My family is just blown away by the difference. It's like a...  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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The Pilots are vast improvement over the factory Potenza run-flats. I made the switch to conventional tires with some trepidation. I have a compressor and plug kit in the trunk, which hopefully will get me home in a pinch. These tires have transformed the car to much more pleasant ride. Traction is phenomenal, directional stability is improved and general...  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

Different Sizes Within a Size?

Did you know that some tires can vary in dimensions slightly, even if they have the same nominal size? 99.9% of the time, the differences won't cause any problems (assuming you're buying a set of four tires), but it is good to know that these differences exist in some rare situations. Take, for example, the following three tires in the size 285/75R16: Dick...  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 Michelin LTX A/T 2

Best truck tires I've ever owned. I had a set on my 2007 F150 for over 30k miles and they still looked almost new when I traded that truck in. I just ordered a new set for my 2010 and can't wait to put them on.Tire wear is best in class, I'm shocked how well the tread holds up on these tires. They also do not sacrifice handling or comfort. Michelin got it...  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 Michelin LTX M/S

I drive a lot in my business, Every 7 months Im at the tire dealer buying a new set. This set is right at 70k miles and I bought them Feb of 2016 and its at the end of Aug 2016 and Im buying a new set. I buy Michelin from the brand name reputation and these tires have a 70,000 mile lifespan. My truck when new came with a set of Generals that did not last...  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
