Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

I purchased the LT or Load Range E tires and I am very pleased with the added traction. The General's do great in mud and dirt and exceptionally well on the pavement. These tires do have a fair amount of noise on the highways and freeways, and are very responsive on pavement or dirt. I would definitely recommend these tires for anyone with a SUV/Truck and an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor

Second set of Wrangler S-A tires on a Tacoma. 1st set (P265/70/R16) on '03 Tacoma DblCab 4x4 OffRoad lasted 90,000 miles (six years). No leaks/flats/problems or complaints. When replaced, still had 1/8 inch tread left but started to show dry rot/UV cracks, were hard as rock). Replaced them with Firestone Destination A/T. Firestones were quiet, soft-riding,...  Read More

Are My Tires Too Old?

How old is too old is an oft-asked question. While the industry guidelines say six years in use or 10 years from build, your experience can vary. The life span you see from any tire can vary greatly depending on how it is used. For example, counter to common belief, an infrequently used tire actually lives a harder life than one that is exercised on a...  Read More

Pad Swap: Hawk HPS vs. Hawk LTS

In an earlier post, I discussed how I installed a set of DBA 4x4 Survival Series T3 Rotors and some Hawk LTS rear pads and HPSfront pads (the LTS front pads weren't in stock at the time). I was happy with the increase in brake torque over the stock brakes, but I still felt as though I could get a little more stopping power if I installed LTS pads on the...  Read More

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

I bought these tires just before a trip from Alabama to California and back again, and I don't think I could have made a better choice. Especially with the huge storms that hit the country this winter. These were to replace the BFGoodrich's that came on the truck. I'd like to think that I am a pretty good driver in the snow, but these tires inspire an almost...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiTrac SUV

This is my first experience with Continental (have usually gone with Michelin for prior SUVs) and I am very impressed. I take my truck in regularly to be serviced and every time I ask, Are you sure my tires are okay? And they keep saying yes. After reading the reviews on this site, I can see lots of others have gotten higher than normal miles on their...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

We purchased these tires as a replacement to the stock MXV4s that came stock on the Sienna. The MXV4s tire wear was horrid. Uneven tire wear and lasted only 40k miles despite the fact that they were always properly maintained. Regular rotations, maintained tire pressure, all 4 corners properly aligned.The MXV4s on the other hand have been fantastic. The...  Read More

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

Only had them on the truck a short while but within 3-4 days of having them installed, had to drive in a nasty late spring snow. They performed sooooo much better even in 2WD then the previous tires, particularly since it doesn't have a locking differential that it seemed to be a totally different truck. They did seem a little harsher riding but that seems...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

My truck is back.... The old factory Oem Goodyear wrangler sa's were not all that bad. But after 40k miles they were loud, wearing out, and made my expedition ride extremely rough. These tires are not cheap. But if you are reading this you know enough to understand that you are looking into a premium tire for your truck. These michelins are worth the price...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

First off let me say that I got these tires used for the back of my 2 wheel drive work truck. They were about 75% gone when I got them. However they have been the most fantastic tires I have ever had on this truck. I plan on replacing all 4 with that tire. The side lugs Aid in the off-road capabilities amazingly, my truck is only two will drive but when I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

There is not enough to say about these tires, this is the tire you should buy. I drive on the highway 5days a week for work and try to spend as much time as I can outdoors on the weekends. Tires are quiet on the highway, but with the quality of a Ford Escape, you're still going to hear road noise. My use on the weekends would involve fishing, hunting,...  Read More

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

I bought these tires and I LOVE them so far. From day 1 the ride in my Benz is super smooth and quiet again after getting rid of the OEM Bridgestone tires. I drive 'somewhat' fast on the interstates and not quite as fast in city driving. So far at 1,500 miles they are super smooth and quiet. I was trucking last weekend on I-65 Southbound at around 98ish and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

These tires allowed me to get around in Northern Wisconsin winter without an issue. There were multiple times where I nearly felt overconfident due to the traction these tires provided. I'm sure the guys in the big 4x4 trucks felt awkward when a Ford Focus ST was passing them :) Overall these tires both met and exceeded expectations, I am a now a firm...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

I love these tires!!! 22,000 miles and hardly no wear! My last Ram came with Goodyear Wranglers which lasted 31,000 miles before I picked up a razor blade on the highway and destroyed one. The tire store recommended these and I couldn't have been happier. After 5,000 miles I traded trucks and I insisted they swap the Goodyears on the new truck for these...  Read More

I have 37,000 miles on these tires . I think, I can get 10,000 more miles out of these tires. on a Ram 8,000 pound truck.   Read More

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

This is the 2nd set that I have purchased for my truck. I have to say that these have been the best set of tires I have ever had on any car or truck I have owned. The tread life is incredible, I rarely need to use 4WD when we get snow, when I go camping in the mountains we simply load up everything and head on up without any worries, and I have even taken it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce LT

I do over 1,000 mile a week on my 2004 Dodge neon it has just under 600,000 miles it never got stuck in any snow or mud on road or off road, but I do run taller tires for clearance, 195 65 15, These tires are GREAT IN THE MUD AND SNOW!! 100% Also by Sand Lake Mich, very well in the sand too!!! I am never late or missed for weather related things every not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

Bought these because I liked how they looked on the truck and the aggressive tread. These are a couple sizes up from stock and fill the wheel well. I was skeptical that a tire with this much open tread would last or would not be super noisy. No real road noise for the first 40,000 miles. The day I picked them up I noticed the truck was a bit swimmy or...  Read More
