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 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 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

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 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

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

These tires are great!! They clawed their way up a very steep snow and ice covered hill starting half way up it and the truck was still in 2wd. Road noise is VERY quiet and tread wear is well above average. My only gripe is traction when accelerating in wet weather however, braking isn't a problem. I will definitely be buying these tires again!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Have these tires on a dedicated 17inch steel wheel. Did not notice any difference in ride from the OEM 20 inch on Goodyears. Noise is a little louder than a all season tire due to having them studded at 0-30mph. Anything over 30mph and you cant hear the studs anymore. Tires do exceptionally well in deep snow. Pulled out a mini cooper in 20inches of fresh...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Bought these tires and have almost 2,500 miles on them now. Overall these are very good tires. They are pretty quiet, have very good feel on my truck in both wet and dry conditions. Living in the north east I haven't gotten a chance to drive that much in snow but the little I did tires felt good and experience no concerns with traction using only 2 wheel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

I purchased these snow tires while living in Lake City, Florida. Needless to say, I got some really funny remarks when ordering/having them mounted. However, they were bought because we were moving to Upper Michigan (Marquette area), where we get TONS of snow. Most people thought we were crazy for buying them when we did (around the middle of March), because...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

My truck came with a set of Goodyear Wranglers from the factory. They were great when new. At almost 39K miles, they still had a good amount of tread on them (around 7/32nds) but were slicker than snot in the rain. In order to not wreck my truck, I put this set of Michelin's on it (based on TireRack and friend's recommendations). At almost $1,200 installed,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I bought my 2007 Chevrolet Suburban Z71 a little over a year ago and it came with a brand new set of these tires on it. Now 50,000 miles later I am extremely impressed. When purchasing the vehicle I was quoted telling my wife that in a few months when these tires wore out I would put a set of DuraTracs on (what I had on my old truck)...well, a year and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A

I drive 40k + miles annually. Drive 70 mph to the job location, pulling trailers, then all day off road in the muddy and sandy fields while pulling 14k trailers, then back home at 70 again. Tires have 77,000 miles on them currently and i still have a 1/4 inch of tread. During hunting season I drive my truck like an atv through the rocky river bottoms and up...  Read More

Best Bang-for-the-Buck All-Terrain Tires

The snow is finally melting, which can only mean one thing - time to go mudding. With the numerous options available, choosing the correct tire for your light truck or SUV can be overwhelming. Should you choose a tire that focuses more on highway driving with some light off-roading, or vice-versa? For starters, what will fit your truck will depend on the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow

This is fourth set of tires that I bought of Tirerack.com and for sure that's not the last one. Although I'm fan of Michelin's tires I'm really impressed with performance of this set of Pirelli's winter tires.This winter season my wife and I drove to Winter Park, Colorado from Chicago and we didn't even have to wait much to try new tires in winter conditions...  Read More

The Highway All-Season Category Belongs to Michelin

The Defender LTX M/S, which replaces Michelin’s LTX M/S2, takes over its predecessor’s spot in first place in the Highway All-Season category. Building upon a winning formula, the tire retains the LTX M/S2’s effective tread pattern and proven internal construction. But the Defender LTX M/S tires utilize a new, more durable tread compound to address...  Read More
