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

Had these Yokohama's on now for 3 days. They were put on during a significant snowstorm so I was able to test drive them immediately. Traction was great. I researched these thoroughly before buying. It was between the Geolandar's G056 and the Michelin LX2's. I went with the Geolandar's due to significant price difference but similar ratings, and past history...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08 R

Ran about 200 miles at Barber Motorsports park in 30-40 degree temps. Grip was amazing once warmed up but still gripped great right out of the pits. Braking is on par with other tires in the category. Ran pressures around 32/30 psi cold which translated to 36/34 hot. I never could get a good hot reading because it was cooling down a lot by the times I got to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

Replaced Michelin Primacy MXM4's. Compared to the MXM4's these are notably quieter and smoother riding. Road bumps are more muted (at same 32psi pressure). Max dry cornering is better (23 vs 21mph in same local round-a-bouts before tire squeal). Transient steering response (dry) not quite as sharp as the MXM4. Wet traction is much better, BUT wet comparo is...  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 Michelin HydroEdge with Green X

It's too early to predict treadwear, but so far these tires are great. A very nice improvement over the previous Yokohama AVID TRZs which were themselves a HUGE improvement over the original Continental CT95s. Wet and dry traction are exceptional, as is steering response. Ride and noise comfort are very good. As of now these tires are serene, I observe none...  Read More

Best All-Terrain Tires for the Money

Here at Tire Rack, we often encounter customers who are looking for some aggressive tires that perform well on the mud trails, yet won't rattle the teeth off their mouth on the highway. By now you have probably figured that choosing tires involves a certain degree of give and take - you can't have the most grip and high mileage at the same time. Granted,...  Read More

Affordable Snow Tires for Winter Driving

These all-season tires are offered in many sizes and are available for a variety of different applications. They also are a great value for all-season tires for areas with no or very light snow.

Getting Ready for Winter 2016: Which Winter Performance Category is Right for You?

Remember last winter? Will this winter be just as bad? Predictions will be made but nobody really knows. The best course of action is to hope for the best but prepare for the worst. There is no simple rule of thumb on whether or not to run winter / snow tires. If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow, you should strongly consider...  Read More

First Impressions of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Bridgestone has historically lead the way in winter condition traction. The more Mother Nature expresses her fury, the happier Bridgestone's winter tires seem to be. In the crossover, sport utility and small truck markets, the Blizzak DM-V1 has been the go-to tire. This fall brings us the all-new Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2.   We took our SUV test vehicles...  Read More

All-New Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 vs Blizzak DM-V1

Bridgestone winter / snow tires are renowned for their outstanding winter traction. For many years, the Blizzak DM-V1 topped the list of best Studless Ice & Snow tires for light trucks, SUVs and crossover vehicles. Its combination of great snow traction, ice traction, wet grip and durability made it the most recommended tire in the category since its...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

OK, so I haven't put enough miles on these yet to determine treadwear and snow performance. All I can say is that, so far, these tires have been a major improvement over the OEM tires. Perfect for a Tundra 4 door with my type of usage. More importantly, I wanted to weigh in on the excelling value of user reviews in making a good decision on new tires. My...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar I/T G072

I have driven in terrible winter conditions all across Canada (for 20 plus years) and these tires are by far the best I have ever owned (I am talking SUV driving). From heavy wet snow to hard packed snow in -30 windy conditions, to black ice, to ice....these tires have never let me down. They have been so good, I have rarely had to resort to flipping the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I have only had these tires a few days, but so far I LOVE them!! I previously had Yokohama Avid tires on my car, and these seem to be MUCH better. Although I cant judge on winter driving or traction, since it is June, I can say that these tires are better in every way that any tire I had previously on my car. They are very comfortable tires, are extremely...  Read More

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

Got these tires based on reviews from others and comparable price. I really wanted to get the Bridgestone Revo ATs which I previously had on my 2000 Jeep Cherokee and performed exceptionally well on that vehicle. I could not get a decent price on the Revos so I thought I'd give the Geolander ATS a try. It was during the recent snow storm in Michigan over...  Read More

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

The first half tread wear has been great. At this point I figure they are half worn. Noise is starting to be noticed. Traction in very cold snow packed conditions is not good, ice traction is low as expected. They are a very nice quiet riding tire so far. Had them 3 seasons so far, figure 2 more seasons of wear left, but they won't make another Minnesota...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Fortera HL Edition

OEM equipment on my 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited. Have the 20 wheels and tires. Had a mystery vibration in the steering wheel at 65 mph. Dealer balanced tires three times to no avail. Apparently there is an known issue with these tires. Manufacturer (jeep)replaced them(no charge to me)with Yokohama Prada Spec X. Vibration is gone. BTW, had these tires on my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN S.4.

This is the best tire I've ever used. I have switch to this tires from Hankook ventus cause I've skidded twice on a wet road. After that I've never experience any kind od skid. Truly the traction and responsiveness in wet and dry road is excellent. I already have 50.000 miles on this tire for 5 years and still got 20% on my tire. Definitely I'll stick to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I purchased these tires 3 months ago and have just over 5K miles on them. We had a bad winter here with lots of rain and some snow. The tires have performed great. No issues in rain or snow. So far it looks like they will last for a while.   Read More

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

We are on our second set of Yokohama HTS tires. I would not consider any other tire when our first set needed to be replaced. The first set gave us over 60,000 miles and never any problems. I recommended these tires to my friend who also purchased them for his 2005 Lincoln Marl LT truck. These are the best tires for the price, value, and reliability.   Read More
