Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge Run Flat

I bought these during the first snow and ice in the Portland area in December and was eager to test them. Luckily we got a nice storm the past few days and I am sold on these tires. My girlfriend lives on a nice hill where the UPS truck in chains would spin and my MDX with the other tires would slide. After installation these tires climbed that hill like I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Think that aggressive all-terrain tires are 'good enough' for snow and ice? Consider this: Tested my 2015 f150 xlt against a friends 2016 f150 xlt in a huge,unused,icy parking lot. My Blizzak's and his OEM A/T tires were almost new. Both in 4WD with locking rear diff's on. Tried it with traction controls on and off. Both times I was a few truck lengths ahead...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I live in Chicago IL where winters can get bad at times and I own a 2015 Buick Verano with OE 18 tires which are horrible in any depth of snow, so I bought and downsized (YES THEY FIT) to 16 Blizzak WS80 tires (215/60R16 95H) and wheels to swap during summer and winter and I must say these Blizzak WS80 tires are amazing. We got 10 inches of snow and my...  Read More

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

Purchased these tires to replace the OEM Goodyears on the truck before winter snows started. The first 8k miles are about 50/50 highway and city.Smooth, quiet, great traction. They are showing no signs of wear so far. Dry traction is as expected driving a 5500 lb truck the way it should be driven: not really aggressively. Snow traction is all I was hoping...  Read More

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

This is my second set of BFG/KO2 tires. The first set I had on my 2008 Toyota Tundra and they worked great, the ride was very smooth and responsive, and extremely quiet. My second set is on my 2014 Ford F250 Crew Cab Super Duty with a plow package. I am by far very pleased with these on my Ford. The Ford requires a rated E type tire. The side walls are...  Read More

These Tires are awesome, wonderful handling, great control on the snow and fun & peace of mind driving specially in Snow.I live in Boulder, CO foothills of Rocky mountain. Its been three weeks i purchased, got delivered on time but in two separate packages. Got them installed then next day, so far i have put about 300 plus miles on these winter tires. We get...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact UHP

I would definitely purchase another set. These ones replaced same tire but in 285/45 size. I went up to 295 because at the time they were less expensive than the 285 size that were available. For this truck, I think that 285 is the better option.I have a winter tire set so I use these only during the non-winter season. Consequently, my posted 10K on these...  Read More

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

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
