Truck Tires: Off-Road Tires and Mud Tires / Mudding Tires Versus All-Terrain Tires

If you have a truck or rugged SUV that you often drive off of the beaten path, then you should consider using tires that are more aggressive than standard Highway All-Season tires or Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tires. How much more aggressive do should you consider? That depends on how much off-road driving you'll be doing and how severe your...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I got these for my 2015 Tahoe, and they made this truck what it is - luxury SUV that can go anywhere. These tires are phenomenal. Please don't listen to people bashing these tires in winter conditions. People bashing these tires for poor snow performance should learn : a. These are not winter tires. b. how to drive in winter conditions.Tires are performing...  Read More

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 BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Being from NJ, I drove down the Garden State Pkwy during a torrential rain storm and not once I felt unsecured driving on these tires, I could not believe it would not give me any sign of hydroplaning any speed I pushed on (55m/h+) while ALL the cars on front of me had their flashing light on, I was cruising along with no problem at all, the grip was...  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 Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I had a set of Nokian WR G3 SUV tires on my previous Subaru and while they gave me great winter performance they were very loud and pretty rough. When I bought the Outback I knew I wanted to replace the factory Bridgestones with something better and I debated about going with a dedicated winter tire but I just didn't want to mess with having to swap tires,...  Read More

I've been looking for a good All Season to replace my stock pirellis on my camaro, and I was mainly looking at the DWS for the snow performance because I like to enjoy my car year round and needed my car to atleast be drivable but these tires blew me away!

Had to quickly accelerate and one...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Second season on the winter tires. Tread is holding up well and still gripping the road well in winter Chicago conditions. This is the best winter tire out there for SUV's. I have tried to slip by aggressive turns and floored vehicle, but no problem with gripping in the snow. Quieter than DM-V1. Blizzak finally topped X ice in the SUV category. I would buy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Excellent Winter tires. If you live in the upper Midwest and above and own a Truck or SUV, these tires are a best buy if you need to drive in the snow. You can't beat the price and the snow traction. I was able to drive faster than conditions would otherwise allow without even a hint of loss of traction in the deep snow with these tires. For my wife's...  Read More

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

Bought a full set to replace my previous Hankook S1 Noble2's that were worn. The Hankooks when new had great grip and soft ride quality at first, but the tire took a turn for the worse after about 20k miles where it lost any advantage over an inferior tire. The GForces are a completely different tire, I'd start by comparing it to a more rigid summer...  Read More

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

I purchased these tires as a replacement for the Goodyear Eagle RS-As that were on the car previously. I tend to drive gently and sit in traffic most days...I need a quiet, smooth tire with good traction for less than 70MPH situations. This General Tire has filled the purpose so well, at such an affordable price ($110/tire) that I am BEYOND THRILLED! I'm so...  Read More

Are Your All-Season Tires Ready to Handle All Seasons?

There’s no doubt that when it comes to driving in inclement weather during the winter months, nothing beats a set of winter / snow tires. However, if you reside in an area that receives only light snow and an all-season tire is all you need, how that tire performs during the winter months is typically the deciding factor when purchasing your replacement...  Read More

Best Replacement Tires for Mazda CX-7

The CX-7 was introduced in 2007 as Mazda's mid-size SUV. After a five-year run, it was replaced by the CX-5. Being larger than a compact SUV, and yet smaller than the mid-size offerings, it hoped to find the sweet spot in between. With only a mild update in 2010, we most commonly see tire size 235/60R18 outfitted on the Mazda CX-7.  Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 Pirell...  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 Michelin X-Ice Xi3

My SUV came with Michelin Primacy MXM4 and my TL Type S has the same tires so I wanted to stay with Michelin. So far I could not be happier with these tires. I can't wait until we get a big snow storm to try them out in deep snow. One thing I did was buy new wheels so I can change the tires myself when the season's change.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

Excellent tire in all regards-road holding, performance on very wet roads, quiet and smoothe. In terms of steering responsiveness the Pirelli Scorpion is a little better, but the Pirelli is not as quiet and is much more expensive. The Prada is the best value for money for an SUV tire and provides shockingly good performance across a broad range of road...  Read More

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

These tires replaced OEM tires for me. Got them from tirerack.com. I've noticed a huge improvement in smoothness and road noise from mile 1 with them. I have driven about 19,000 miles on them so far. In fact, these are a big step up from the OEM Goodyears in every way except one -- treadwear. That has been surprising given their rating. I got 37,000 miles on...  Read More
