Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A

I purchased BF Goodrich Radial R/A (white raised letters) this month; thanks to the knowledge of my TR advisor was able to get this tire at 215/70 Front and 225/70 Rears. This brand and combination are not available on default based on my car but I insisted to get this brand and vintage look. The combination works really well and transformed my '64 Corvette...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

In the past I always would purchase the Bridgestone Revo's on one ton trucks vans ETC. This tire has far exceeded my expectations. It is very quiet for a truck of this size, the ride is so much better. Most of the time I have a trailer being pulled behind with another car on it.Very confident handling, I have not tried them in snow yet, but looking at the...  Read More

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

Michelin is Excellence!!! There is no better on road tire unless you live in Snow Country the majority of the year!!!Original Equipment was Continentals. They are a B + Tire with 16 +/- MPH on my truck. Then I went for a Larger Tire Size, Toya Open Country (35 Inch Tire) 14 +/- MPH. This Tire is a good off road tire. Highway performance, rain and snow were C...  Read More

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

75% of my driving is highway (70+ mph), 20% city and 5% playing in the dirt and mud.I needed to get a new set before the most recent northeast Ohio winter and just like you, I did my research. I wanted a more aggressive looking tire on my truck that could handle handle winter and not kill my mpg. I wanted to give my review after I put 10,000 miles on them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I have had these tires for (3)-winters now. I noticed a significant difference as soon as they were put on. The grip and traction they apply in the snow is great. My truck no longer slides or slips in the snow, even in 2WD. Turning is sharp, acceleration is just like on dry pavement.I have driven this down roads with more than 4-in of snow with complete...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I installed these on my Jeep Wrangler Sport (model yr 2004) after the Mickey Thompson Bajas wore out in under 10k!. The Scorpions lasted me approximately 25,000 miles until I replaced them for a new set. I used to deflate down to 10-13 psi and do hardcore dune bashing in the desert, and re-inflated back up to 35 psi once all the fun was done with. They...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

This is my 2nd set of these tires, my 1st set was on a 98 Tacoma and I got a little over 100k out of those tires. So I bought a new Tundra and drove straight to Good Year and had the BFG's taken off and had a new set of Duratrac's put on and it changed the dynamics of the truck during corning, and felt more stable on the highway. I currently have 97k on...  Read More

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

With only a few hundred miles on these tires, there isn't much of a review to be written, but I feel obligated to tell you about my first impression. First, I must tell you what I replaced...GoodYear Wrangler Duratrac. I purchased a used set of 20 GMC wheels that had the Duratracs on them. They were worn about 50%. Those tires were terrible in my opinion....  Read More

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
