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

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 BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2

Ok, I am not understanding some of the reviews here... at all... The guy with sports car experience ??? This is an off road, mud traction tire.. nuff said. OK. Let me say something here: Air pressure, air pressure, air pressure. Pressure for each application is DIFFERENT!! I see people running 50 psi on these and complaining about the ride? Come on guys......  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
