Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

This is an incredible tire for the price. I caught them for $99 each from Tirerack and my local Firestone store mounted and balanced them at the Tirerack negotiated price, very reasonable. There is no noise at all, they ride very quietly, smoothly and responsively both around town and especially on the highway, even at 90 mph speeds. They have a very secure...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Excellent Winter tires. If you live in the upper Midwest and above and own a Truck or SUV, these tires are a best buy if you need to drive in the snow. You can't beat the price and the snow traction. I was able to drive faster than conditions would otherwise allow without even a hint of loss of traction in the deep snow with these tires. For my wife's...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have had very good experience in the past with several Blizzak tires but the size I needed was not available for my 2016 Audi A6 FWD. So I bought the Michelin X-Ice. I was really looking forward to see how they worked. I feel they worked very good in light snow, slushy, and ice conditions. One day after a significant snowfall, maybe 7 inches I decided to...  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

Best Tires for 2014 Subaru Outback

With the generous cargo capacity, all-time AWD and off-road performance, this vehicle is going to be in your garage for several years. But when it’s time to replace the...  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 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 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 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 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 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 General Altimax Arctic

My daily commute consists of 10 miles of secondary roads and about 30 miles of interstate driving with a difference of over 1000ft in elevation during the drive. I've used studless winter tires in the past in level terrain and was relatively happy except on ice, but with the amount of driving and hilly terrain I elected to go with a set of 4 of these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I purchased a set of these in 285/70-R17 on 17x8.5 wheels to replace the OEM wheels on my truck. The truck is otherwise stock and there is no rubbing at all over bumps or at steering extents. Most of my driving is highway or rough back roads and a bit offroad. So far I am quite impressed with this tire.It has excellent hydroplane resistance (tested in a...  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 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
