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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Cargo G26

The first set of tires were factory installed on this Sprinter 15 wheels and lasted a little over 100K with no additional balancing or rotation. I finally fixed the front right camber problem and now my mileage and steering is very nice. I expect these new tires to go over 110K; maybe 115K. Keep track of tire pressure for the season, front bearings in good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

This is the OEM tire on new Z51 and Z06 Corvettes (except for the Z07 package with the Cup tires). It's a solid tire for a daily driver -- no issues. What amazed me was how well the tire performed during a couple track days. Get a little heat into the tires, and they stick as well as Toyo R888's, which are a dedicated track tire I've used many times over the...  Read More

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

Incredible tire. I bought my first Ram 1500 back in 2011 - a 4x4 Crew Cab Hemi powered Big Horn. It came with hokey 20 wheels with chromed wheel covers (What the heck?) and Goodyear tires. Horrible combination for gravel. I had two right side blowouts within two months of purchase (strong possibility that the tires had been damaged in the centers while...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

2013 ML550 w/ Airmatic and Active Curve. Went through 2 other tire brands (Nexen and Michelin) before settling on these Scorpion Verde AS Plus tires.These tires excel in one important area - ride comfort. If you are looking for a comfortable yet capable tire - these are it. Aired down to the correct PSI for my SUV, these are hands down the most comfortable...  Read More

New Wheels and Tires For Your New Ford Focus RS

Did you just get a Focus RS or have one on the way? Depending on how you've configured your RS, you probably have 19x8 ET 50 dark grey cast alloy wheels on 235/35R19 Michelin Pilot Super Sports. For many RS drivers there is no need to upgrade. The Michelin Pilot Super Sport is a great match for those looking for a balanced tire. It's got a crisp steering...  Read More

Putting Larger Wheels on Your Vehicle

Plus Sizing, the process of changing wheels and increasing the diameter, is a great way to enhance the look and performance of your vehicle. What is plus sizing and how does it work? This involves changing the tire and/or wheel size from the original size in a controlled manner so as to maintain certain critical dimensions. When creating a Plus Size¬†fitment,...  Read More

Must I Keep My Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Functional?

When shopping for new wheels and tires for your 2008 model-year or newer vehicle, you will have to address the tire pressure monitoring system. The National Highway Traffic Safety Agency (NHTSA) and a handful of states have made the option of running without sensors a little more limited. This can become complicated and should be addressed directly with a...  Read More

New Payment Option: Goodyear Credit Card

We often get calls from customers asking if we have financing options. While we don't directly finance purchases, we have historically accepted Bill Me Later, which is now PayPal Credit. Also, we will continue accepting this method for online orders, but now there is another option! If you already have a Goodyear Credit Card, then you're in luck! You can now...  Read More

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

The first time I pushed the tire in corners it performed so well the safety limiter for the car (it starts to shut down the ignition if the car exceeds the preset tilt limit or higher G forces than the safety engineers programed in the computer) started to slow me down. I see that yellow warning light occasionally and laugh how well these tires perform. They...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

This tire is awesome. You just know how special it is, from the moment you start driving...When you cross over any kind of painted surface in the road, you can tell just how sticky the tire is...it sounds like Velcro being ripped apart. I took a VERY SHARP highway exit ramp, at breathtaking speed, I thought I was going to be thrown out of the side window, a...  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 Potenza RE-71R

Used mostly for Autocross on set of BBS wheels. Great traction after first heat cycle. Little wear noted after five 25 minute track sessions. Very pleased to date   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I replaced a set of Conti ExtremeContact DWS with the Conti TrueContact tire. While happy with the ExtremeContact DWS they were a bit noisy and were beat up pretty bad from some very spirited driving during the 40,000 miles I had on them. They were also getting close to requiring replacement anyway. A sidewall bubble developed after hitting a curb so I...  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 BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

These tires are awesome. 95% of the time I'm on road, and they handle excellently. For such a large sidewall, at road pressure they still handle great (especially on a Jeep). Dry traction is superb, wet traction is very good, but is the only thing I think could improve a little. Even in snow and ice they are responsive and handle very well. I only have about...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KL21

I chose the 245/65/18 tire on a search for higher ground clearance / gas mileage and not cause any interference on my 2007 Saab 97x. What I found was that this tire performs well on the highway in Wisconsin winters, snow/slush and during heavy rains in the summer. These tires work well on this vehicle probably do to its 5000 lb. weight and all wheel drive. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Based on the Tire Rack tests and reviews, I knew this tire wasn't going to be as stiff and responsive as some of the others in it's category, but that was a trade-off I made (since MazdaSpeed 3 has a stiff suspension), and not disappointed. Ride is more comfortable. Turn in is a little vague (relative to this category), and some minor corrections are needed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

only use this for my weekend fun drives. for the price, these are the bomb. tires are a soft compound so steering response is not as responsive with slight wheel turns, but when you actually do some hairpin turns and pushing these tires on the autocross, they stick like --------. i had more expensive tires but after buying these, such a waste of money. i can...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These replaced the stock Dunlop Sport Maxx RT's. Instead of putting the new PSS's on the stock wheels, I had TireRack install these PSS's on Enkei TS9's with TPMS. These are now my summer set of wheels and tires. About 800 miles were initially covered for a road trip from Salem, OR to Ontario, OR and back. The roads were dry the entire trip, which meant...  Read More
