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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Purchased these tires a couple of weeks ago. Previous tires were no longer available for purchase. I got 70,000 mi out of them and disappointed that they were discontinued. So took a chance on the Pirelli tires and glad I did. These tires handle great. Ride noise is none and they look great on the car. Just starting winter driving here and so far, they have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G056

These tires were installed during a cold rainy day at the end of Oct. First reactions were smooth, quiet in the wet, and above average grip in both acceleration and braking. The next few days were dry and clear and still the tires performed well above my expectations. Very comfortable and quiet. Bare in mind, I changed from a Continental LX20 (not an AT...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

As I was having the tires installed, the temp. dropped from 30 degrees down to 12 degress... All day it had been lightly raining and snowing on and off... When the temp drop so suddenly, the roadways turned to ice and the Lake Michigan snow machine started to near whiteout conditions. These tires were and are remarkable as my 6-speed manual Jetta responded...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

The Yokohamas proved their worth here in Buffalo during the worst winter storm since the Blizzard of '77. The truck didn't get stuck once driving across very icy roads with deep snow on very steep inclines. Driving in bumper high snow will work. Snow higher than that and you're going nowhere with any vehicle. When driving with relatively new original factory...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

After the hard winter last year, my wife was really concerned with sticking with the all season tires she had. So I did my research and the local tire shop recommended these tires and I have to say I am nothing short of impressed. This past winter in Michigan, we had one of the biggest snowfalls in a weekend. My wife's traverse is FWD and with these tires I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

Purchased these tires for my Prius Touring (I liked the regular tire size better than the touring so had them swapped to the 15in rims) while living in the PacNW for harsh winter driving to and from work. Tires were abused on logging roads,(yup went hunting in a prius and got funny looks from lifted truck drivers...) excelled in warm wet environments, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Turned my Yaris into a winter beast! After last winter (2013 in Southeast Michigan), I was sold on getting snow tires for the following winter. I'm glad I did, although winter 2014 didn't yield as much snow as winter 2013, these tires have been tested on snowy, icy, wintery roads and have not failed, even on the dry cold concrete, I'm a very confident...  Read More

Big Savings on Big Snow Tires

If you have a lifted 4x4 truck, Jeep or SUV with 35" mud tires, you may think you're ready for the worst conditions, but you're not. Four-wheel drive will obviously help you accelerate and ground clearance will help with deeper snow, however your mud tires are holding you back.  In order to have great snow grip, a tire must have the right compound, and...  Read More

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

When I purchased these tires they were not yet available to the public. My purchase was based on reviews and testing done at the Baja Fresh. I knew they were more then capable in an off road scenario and even in snow. The fear was that they would be noisy and perform just plain awful on the highway.These tires over exceeded my expectations. They look really...  Read More
