Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

I had high hopes and I'm very disappointed.They are pretty good in light snow, I have not had the occasion to try on deep snow or ice. They are ok on dry road but they are DANGEROUS on wet road. I have had several close calls on wet roads because they won't break, lock and slide (I don't have ABS). I drive with Goodyear GT Eagle the rest of the year which...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

These are summer tires, replacing original Conti ProContact (42K mi). At half the price of Conti/Michelin, etc etc, I must say I am extremely pleased with their performance. I had also considered the BFG g-Force A/S but after talking to Bart at TireRack, he said that he felt the non-directional tread pattern enabled diagonal rotation, whereas the BFG would...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

What is your life worth?Bridgestone Blizzaks are a phenomenal snow/ice tire. These tires (mount 4 tires, never 2) can save your life...literally. Better traction, stopping, accident avoidance, reliability to get where your going in an emergency all add up to better safety. Simply the best thing you can do to protect your car, your life and those of others...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Riken Raptor VR

I bought these tires for the Spring/Summer months and instantly got 2-4 mpg back from my winter tires. The day I put these on my car I drove over a 1000 miles on a trip and half of it was in the rain. I had absolutely no issue at all with drifting lane to lane or even cornering hard.I tried a couple times to lose traction on quick turns and they stayed put....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 N-Spec

If you are looking for a performance winter tire. This is it. I've used normal winter tires on a Honda Civic before and i hated the handling and the noise and the grip in the rain and dry wasn't that great. With my performance package Mustang GT, I knew i wanted to maintain the sporty handling that the car had on the factory Pirelli P-Zero Maximum...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Changed two seasons ago from Blizzaks. The Michs are a superior tire in all respects. They are quiet, particularly on a Mazda. The ice traction is excellent and wet traction is superior to the Bridgestones.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

THESE TIRES ARE USED IN PARK CITY UT IN A SUBDIVISION UP ON A MTN SIDE. OUR ROADS ARE SO STEEP AND SNOWY THAT THE COUNTY SENDS AROUND A FRONT END LOADER WITH CHAINS ON ALL FOUR WHEELS BEFORE THE SNOW PLOW COMES BY! TEN INCHES OF WET, SLICK SNOW, UNPLOWED AND I HAD NO TROUBLE MOVING, STOPPING OR STEERING AT ALL. THE FEDEX DELIVERY SUV WAS STUCK, AS WELL AS...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Living in New York and daily driving a Mustang in the winter can be stressful, but these tires made all the difference. I was able to drive through several light snow storms without any problems, and these tires got me through some heavier snow fall as well, though I tried to stay off the roads when they were too bad. Overall, these tires gave me the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I selected this tire on the advice of the Tire Rack rep in a phone conversation. I drive in snow and ice conditions in the Sierra Nevada mountains. I have driven this tire in very severe snow and ice conditions going over the mountains and it is incredible. It grips the road like crazy even in deep snow and on icy roads. Very impressed. Highly recommend this...  Read More

Had a very snowy winter in Reno. Had to drive on snowpack and ice on several occasions. They worked well on all snow, ice , wet and dry pavement.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

What a wonderful upgrade to the Blizzak WS70! Snow ice/performance is stellar as expected. What shocked me was how well the tire behaves in the dry. Unlike my WS70s, these do not exhibit any of the 'loose snow tire feel!' No guilt or pressure to switch them out this way in the springtime, which worked out well with our late winter storm this year.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Noisiest tire ever!! Louder than the shagged Bridgestone Blizzak's they replaced. I bought these tires because they were inexpensive and have an aggressive tread as a compromise to swapping out dedicated snows every year so I did not expect them to be quiet, but holy cow....my normally quiet sedan now sounds like a turbo prop airplane taxiing down the...  Read More

Is the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 the Best All-Season or All-Terrain Tire for Snow Traction?

If you've experienced driving through a tough winter season on a top-tier winter tire like the Bridgestone Blizzak DMV-2, you'd agree that a set of dedicated winter tires offer the best traction in snow and on ice. If you are one who doesn't agree with this statement, take a look at "Do Winter/Snow Tires Really Make a Difference?" Winter tires should be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

These were my first set of winter tires. Have since bought winter tires for all my cars. So I'm a believer based on these tires.Took my new driver sons out to learn how to react to a slide in several inches of wet snow. Had them get up to speed and make a turn. I pulled the brake and... nothing. Nothing more than a little slide easily corrected. One son...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Owning a fleet of sedans in New England winters is a feat due to the ever changing weather conditions. Our sedans move people where they need to go no matter the weather so we needed a tire that can be ever capable. Last winter we deployed the Bridgestone Blizzak on the cars; they were a great tire just a bit on the noisy side and wore in odd patterns. So...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

When I was looking for a set of tires for my 2017 Ford Explorer Platinum I had my heart set on purchasing a set of Michelin, because I loved the ride quality along with the ice and snow traction. After reading Tire Rack customer reviews I thought I would trust everyones comments, and give the 245/60R18 Continental WinterContact SI a try. I must say I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-25 RFT

I bought these for my winter wheels, because living in Pennsylvania we get enough snow in the winter to merit snow tires. I liked the idea of run-flat tires because of possible punctures from ice in wintry conditions wouldn't have an effect on my mobility. I'd been driving in mostly dry and rainy conditions and liked that they didn't give much more road...  Read More
