Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T RH-S

These Bridgestone Dueler AT RH-S tires came stock from the factory (P265/65R18 OWL) on my 2009 Silverado Z71 crew cab. Overall, during 51,000+ miles and 6 years, I would rate them as maybe a little better than average. These tires have never pulled a trailer or hauled a load in the bed, and they've been used 50% city/40% highway/10% gravel. I am a stickler...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I have always bought Bridgestone tires for all of my vehicles. Would highly recommend them for all cars and trucks in all driving scenarios. The original equipment Michelin MXM4 that came on the car barely got to 30K miles. I hope I have great use of these Bridgestones as I have with every set I've purchased before... will review again after putting some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

I live in northern Vermont and frequently drive on unpaved mountainous roads. I can't compare these to other winter tires since I only use Blizzaks in the winter and have been completely satisfied. I slow down and drive the conditions. Ice is my biggest concern as well as road noise. Pros: excel in icy conditions, quiet ride that is comparable to OEM all...  Read More

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

This is a follow up review from my original I wrote after only 500 miles. Now with 6500 miles and having driven in snow, on ice, in rain, on nasty city streets (I live in Chicago), on Interstate, State, and county highways I can say that purchasing these tires was the best decision I have made. I live in Chicago but cover a sales territory from Detroit, MI...  Read More

Best Replacement Tires for Your Chevrolet Silverado

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a top-selling workhorse vehicle in the United States. Appealing to contractors, tradesmen and families alike, there is a Silverado out there for almost anyone. Based on my unscientific sampling of people I talk to as a member of our sales team, the half-ton, four-wheel drive model is the most popular model. Since at least 2007...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza

Hands down, best set of tires i've ever owned. tread ware, comfort, noise level, all excellent. After getting over 90k on my first set, oem on my 08 denali, you bet I was going to go for another set when it was time. Btw, still had tread on these tires and could of probably got another 5-8k miles more, but winter is upon us, and they were on sale.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Feels very similar to the WS 70, if not slightly lower in performance? Have been running WS 70 for last 5 winters. The WS 80 feels like it has less grip at the limit (same with RE 11A for summer). Could be the set I have. Average 5000km per performance tire (20000km/set) winter or summer. If my next set of WS 80's are still feeling worse than WS 70's, I will...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

I moved away from the OEM Michelin tires (Mud/Snow) that are a very good tire and if you do off road driving a little, maybe the best choice for that. However, I have had the opportunity to test these Bridgestone tires in snow, ice, rain and more in the first 300 miles and they keep my Ridgeline pickup in excellent control of the conditions. Where these...  Read More

Best Winter Tires for Honda Civic

One might wonder how a Tire Rack sales specialist searches for a Winter / Snow Tire & Wheel Package for their own vehicle. I drive a 2014 Honda Civic Si and will be putting new tires and wheels on it this winter. Deciding on what to purchase is tough, even for someone who is always #thinkingabouttires.   The first thing to do is to search by your vehicle's year...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

Only about 500 miles on these so far, so this is pretty much just initial impressions made to date. This is my fourth set of Duelers, third of which were Alenzas and first of the new Plus series. I had Michelin Latitudes on prior to this current set largely because they were on sale for less than the Alenzas last time around and I figured heck, they're...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

I used to have the 960's on my car and I loved them! The handling was so remarkably improved over the OEM Michelin grand touring tires. I got 50,000 miles on them before switching to the Continental DWS tires due to the cost of the 960's creeping up higher than I liked. The Conti's were pretty good espcially in the rain and light snow that we get in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Costco had these tires on sale for a decent price, so I bought them based on this site's reviews. Up here in Manitoba we have snow & ice on the roads 5-6 months of the year & temperatures that can get as low as -40F. I do a lot of highway driving to get to work, but I live in the city. These tires exceeded my expectations for both city & highway driving. No...  Read More

Deciding Between Run-Flat and Non-Run-Flat Tires

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

The ride quality went down, the noise level went up. I have hat these on My 1998 Buick LeSabre and can't stand them. The wet traction is awful. I was coming around a turn on a on ramp and was accelerating faster as I was at the end of the turn going around 15mph's on wet pavement, then my tires broke loose and the car wanted to go strait. All together I...  Read More

Looking for the Best Winter / Snow Tire for 2012-13?

As the 2012 winter season quickly approaches, many members of our sales team took to the ice rink to compile measured data regarding starting and stopping distances on glare ice. In our tests, we reviewed several winter / snow tires and got a feel for each tire's bite capabilities, lateral handling grip and breakaway limits. These winter tires feature softer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

Called the Tire Rack to order a different tire because stock size is NLA from most manufacturers. Sales Advisor informed me about the Bridgestone RE-11 in my size. I have not had good prior experience with Bridgestone, but since this was the ONLY performance tire in this size I decided to give it a try. My FIRST spirited driving on them was at the Tail of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity

Replaced OEM Michelins at approx. 62,000 miles. Those were OK tires, but they always seemed to be really loud. As those tires wore down I could hardly hear on my mobile phone. I had my dealer parts dept. order thru Tire Rack and charge me the same price that I would of paid for them ordering direct. Tires arrived fast and it was a painless process. I rotate...  Read More

Looking for the Best Autocross Tires?

Choosing the best tire is one of the most important factors of a successful autocross season. Racers spend lots of time and energy in extracting every ounce of horsepower and torque from their engine, and sometimes forget that all of this power is useless unless it can be effectively transferred to the track. There are four small patches of rubber that play...  Read More
