Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

These are absolutely excellent tires for the price, and I'd recommend them for nearly any normal vehicle. I've had several sets of different Yokohama tires, and have enjoyed every single one of them (including AS530, various AVID and Geolander truck tires). These AVID Touring-S tires have been perfect for 60,544 trouble free miles so far as of today. I'm...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

These tires are awesome! I'm driving a 97 4Runner. It had Yokohama Geolanders. Bought the truck used with the Yoko's. I liked those tires and was going to replace with the same until I read the reviews on the LE2.The roads have been awful between Chicago and SW Michigan. Snow, ice, slush, smooth and everything in between. I noticed my old tires were...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar G91A

2013 Mazda CX-5 56k miles with no problems. Replaced with less expensive Continental TrueContact. Geolander turned better, tracked better. Maybe not as good in standing water but didn't notice that until later in their life.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Having had both the OEM and Yokohama Geolanders for the Pilot - I have nearly 140,000 miles on it and am the original owner - these are by far the best tires I have ever had on this car, or for that matter, any car. Driving in NJ to work 46 miles round trip, combination highway and local roads. Through last winter in particular, the traction especially on...  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 Yokohama Geolandar M/T Plus

I have good and bad to say. Traction is good on-road and great off-road. My concern is the mere 2 ply sidewalls for serious off road work. My fear proved true this weekend when an innocent looking stick blew out the sidewall from wheel to tread. Not sure exactly how it even happened. It was on a easy trail and the stick was loose, but somehow got...  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 Yokohama Geolandar H/T G95A

I have 2 Subaru Foresters. My 2013 has the Geolanders on it. I haven't driven in deep snow, but I live in Colorado, so I would put snows on for deep snow. I was all over the East Coast last summer on every kind of dirt road there is and these were quiet and gripped the road perfectly in all sorts of nasty conditions. Rain, mud, water, etc. I am impressed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have a few thousand miles, and been in heavy downpours, icy roads, light and heavy snow, and some warm days too. These tires surpassed my expectations in the snow. I drove when in a few inches, and also in 8-12 inches of snow. The grip excellent in snow, and even on my driveway after a snow melt and then a quick refreeze created a long thick ice covered...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T-S G051

The only complaint I really have about these tires is that they get pretty noisy when they are nearing the end of their life due to cupping despite regular rotations. That being said, I got just above 80,000 miles out of my first set of these, so I am not sure I can really complain considering this is a 60,000 mile tire. I replaced my first set with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

In the context of going from studded Nokian Hakapeliita 5 dedicated winter snow tires (the BEST), changing to new Michelin Premier A/S tires has been remarkable...the tires are quiet, both relative to coming from studded tires which were noisy, but even considering how quiet they are on roads scored by studded tires. In terms of ride comfort, the Forester...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

It's a great tire and it will not disappoint in any type of environment you can throw at. Road noise is minimal unlike some of the others saying it is loud. These tires make truck feel stable and truck does not wonder the road or feel mushy. I had Goodyear Wrangler SRA's on before which were terrible for handling, getting stuck in my wet front yard among...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

OEM on our 2012 Pilot, and I've put these on our 2008 Subaru Forester XT 5MT. On the Pilot they have 5 to 10K left on them and have worn very evenly with regular rotation. On the Forester mileage 30K/est 20K remaining, also wearing evenly.I have found these to have excellent dry and wet traction. They are far better than the OEM Yokohama Geolanders the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

I've had them long enough to have driven in almost every condition on road, including deep snow, ice, heavy rain, dry highway, secondary roads with tight turns, and some highway cruising. I don't have any meaningful off-road experience to report.These tires transformed the ride and tire noise levels to those of near car tires in our 2006 Honda Ridgeline RTL....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

In February 2010, I purchased these tires. They arrived after the mid-Atlantic region received over 25 inches of snow in 2 days and expecting 30 inches more the upcoming weekend. Luckily, I was able to get them installed Friday because Thursday, I waited for 4 hours and they told me they couldn't do it. On Friday, I went to a different place.Anyway, these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

Boy O Boy this is a great tire! Just Replaced some worn out Yokohama Geolanders and my Element is a totally different car. Smooth, very quiet, handles well, and I can now carry on a conversation driving down the road. I purchased them based on Tire Rack reviews and they were spot on. Highly recommend this tire!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

This is my first set of General Tires. The General AltiMAX RT43 replaced the OEM Yokohama Geolanders that came on the Forester. They Geolanders were not a good all season tire. I did not feel safe on snow and ice even with the all wheel drive.I had the General tires installed on a snowy day and it was really an impulse buy because of the lack of traction I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

I've been through three sets of these tires and they have all been out-of-round, which caused annoying vibrations and steering wheel shimmy. I really liked the look of these tires, but it was not worth the constant annoyance caused by the vibrations. Had them road-force balanced multiple times and all four tires from the most recent set were under 8 lbs...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

Wanted to replace replace the OEM Goodyear LS2s as I didn't trust them for dirt, snow and ice. I was hesitant to replace them after just 8k miles, but I knew this car do do better. Our Outlander is mainly a city car but we do occasional Ski and Camping trips and really wanted to get the most of the S-AWC of the Outlander. I was concerned about noise, ride...  Read More
