Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have survived seven PA winters using performance all-season tires but knew it was just a matter of time before my Mustang got stuck and left me out in the cold. I did my research and opted for a set of WS80 Blizzaks for my factory rims and purchased a set of new wheels / tires for the rest of the year.My previous set of tires were Michelin Pilot Sport A/S...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I Daily Drive C5 Corvette all year in Michigan. I drove the car to the airport on un-plowed roads at 4:00AM Feb 2 and made it all the way - That was 13 of the worst snow storm we've had here since 1974. I stayed in the 2track paths of 4x4 trucks mostly - but this was still deep enough you could feel the snow dragging on the bottom of the car for the 25 or so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

2002 Park Avenue with WS80 Blizzak...also see my 2000 Park ave ws70 Blizzak review.My wife needs ice tires this runs more highway freeway and metro streets stop n go lights etc, but also needs to get through deep snow at times. We got rid of X ice 2's (they were used with Buick rims from an old dealer)... a good ice tire but Blizzak has the winter edge. the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

I live in Southeast PA, and my 3 season tires are Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3s (which I've also reviewed). I purchased the Sottozero 3 for below freezing driving months, frequently harsh winters, and to retain the sporty driving characteristics of my car when road road conditions are good. It's not easy to find a winter tire that is good in many road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

I just finished my first winter on these tires. /they performed better than I expected. I ever had any problem on unplowed roads or highway. During a severe black ice night I slipped and slided but made it home when every other vehicle on the road either crashed or was hopelessly stuck. The only time I had ant difficulty was when I went to drive around an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT LT

I drive a standard 2011 Dodge Ram 4WD pickup. I load wood pellets for my home heating in the truck, 2000 pounds at a time. These tires hardly notice the load. I can run home at 65 with that load. As far as traction, it's unbelievable.. Never spun a tire over the past two bad winters in upstate NY. Great tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Winter is dying down in Ottawa Canada and while shining my tires for the first time since i got them just before winter i realized i should write a review because I loved them that much. Canadian winters are rough, and when people skimp on tires especially all season they end up in the ditch. I have driven in some very bad snowstorms, hard packed snow fresh...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I don't go off road, so didn't want all terrain tires. the stock Goodyear SRA's are just junk, very dangerous in rain, so I didn't even wanna see what snow would be like. I have always been a big believer in winter dedicated tires for winter months. Put the proper dedicated tires on for what the environment calls for, you only have 4 small contact patches of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I bought the Firestone Destination A/Ts based on their very high ratings in the Survey section at Tire Rack. In the past, I always thought Michelin made the best tires, so I was somewhat skeptical of switching to the Firestone brand. After 11 months and 19,000 miles of driving, it's clear that the Firestone Destination A/T is the best tire that has ever been...  Read More

Introducing the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Continental continues to produce many of the Original Equipment tires for a large amount of vehicles in production today. However, they do much more than manufacture the ContiProContact that may have come equipped on your vehicle from the factory. They have several lines of performance and touring tires for cars, trucks and SUVs that are at a reasonable...  Read More

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

Had Goodyear's Wrangler's on the truck before, terrible tread life. These Michelins are the best tires I've ever owned. After 35000 miles, they still ride and handle like new. Wet traction is a minus here, i tend to spin the rear tires when not loaded. Snow traction is incredible, especially after the winter of 2014. As long as I have at least a half a tank...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

Great tire so far. As of today I would definitely buy again. I have only had this tire through the winter and it has performed flawlessly. I do a fair amount of towing the snowmobile trailer to different locations during the winter and this tire has easily out-performed my last (stock ??, BFG A/T KO, and Toyo M/T) three sets of tires. The BFG's were terrible...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

These tires met and exceeded all reasonable expectations over the Winter past which saw a much higher than normal amount of snow on the roads from hard snow pack to iced intersections, deep new fallen heavy snow (wet & dry) and extreme cold where road salt was entirely ineffective. All-in-all it was a bitter, long and snowy season best forgotten but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

At 40k, I replaced the stock Yokohama Geolanders with Assurance Triple Tred All-Seasons. The Yokohama's still had 7/32, but at about 30k, I started having hydroplaning and noise issues. Also, last winter, the snow/ice traction had noticeably decreased. With a baby on the way, and winter approaching, I wanted a safe tire for my family. Coupled with the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I bought these tires to replace the OE Generals that were terrible at 29,000 miles. My truck now has 102,000 miles and these Michelins still have some good tread. I will replace them before the winter though, and yes with the same tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I have at least 50,000 miles on this set of tires and I have no complaints at all. Anyone who expects to get more than 50,000 miles out of a set of tires on a truck is dreaming. They still have some tread left and could probably get me through the winter but I'm going to pick up a new set anyway.They wear very evenly. I think I only rotated them once. Very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Great winter tire with excellent snow traction, both light and heavy. One of the best non-studded ice tires out there. Unfortunately with BOTH sets of Blizzaks I've owned, treadwear underperforms. I am replacing the Blizzaks on my truck after just over 25K miles since the treads are worn beyond legal limits.   Read More

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

Got a set of 4, well-used, from a friend. Prob had about a third of tread left. Was hoping to finish the summer with them, Estimated that he already had 35000 on them, and I got another 15000 miles, used about half the remaining tread,i.e. went from 33% left to 15% left in that much travel. Only complaint is wet traction. Have been surprised a couple of...  Read More
