Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Rugged Trail T/A

The Goodrich Rugged Trail T/A LT245/75R17 121/118R was the original equipment tire on my Ford F-150. I replaced them with the same tire after 65k on the 1st set and 65k on the second set. I'm currently buying the same tire for my 3rd set of tires at 130k+ miles. They have good traction and good wear. Keep the truck aligned and the tires rotated and balanced...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT

Just purchased a new 2015 Ford F150 XLT supercrew on 1-1-2016, and so far I've only put on 1500 miles. That said I've had a fair amount of winter weather driving, and so far these tires have seemed to exceed my expectations (I'm a big Michelin fan). I'll be sure to update as the miles driven increases...So far so good.   Read More

Tire Size 265 70R17 Versus 285 70R17: Can I Use a Larger Size?

Before asking the question, "Can I use a larger tire size?", you should first ask yourself "Should I use a larger tire size?" Why is this important? While going to a larger size may give you that "big tire" look, changing your vehicle's tire size affects more than just cosmetics. Altering your vehicle's tire size can affect speedometer and odometer...  Read More

just had some icy conditions so I can do my full review. first of all ride quality cant be better and no noise at all. second, basically no tread wear in 20,000 miles an it was a super hot summer and I pulled my trailer a fair amount. I was on the fence about getting blizzaks for winter but decided not too and it was the right choice because we had some icy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

I just recently installed the BFG KO2's on my 2011 Ford F-150 5.0. So far I pretty much have nothing but good things to say about this tire. I'm pretty easy-going in my driving, so I haven't really push these tires to their limits on or off R so I haven't really push these tires to their limits on or off road. The three immediate differences that I noticed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I have a 2013 Ford F150 4x4 crew cab with HD tow package. The tires are OEM. In the 2 1/2 years that I owned the truck, I have put on 55K miles of which 25K miles is pulling a traveler trailer weighing 7K. I could get 5 to 10K more mileage from the tires. But I am planning a 7K mile trip and would rather be safe than sorry. If weather conditions get really...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

Hard to understand the wide divergence in people's evaluation of these tires. I've read the poor performance ones, mostly from the Ford F150s, and then the great ones. Having driven on every surface in my life, some of them racing, and most of them with these tires now, what I believe is that people need a proper wheel, WIDE enough for the tire and proper...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Winter Slalom KSI

Our Toyota Highlander V6 AWD has always been a good winter vehicle. Excellent in all wintertime driving conditions from glare-ice to a foot or more of deep snow. I drive about 75 miles rt for work each day, mostly expressway driving in Michigan's snow belt. Last winter (2013) was a bad winter so this year I went with as set of winter tires for the first...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro AT-M

We have a 15 Expedition and the tire came stock; i was impressed right away in a good amount of snow 9 inches or so. The truck held strong, braked well, and acceleration was not an issue at all. now we have no snow and it impresses me again. I didn't realize how quiet the tire was until I had to get new tires from my F150 (2014). I went with Toyo ATII - they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I just bought a 2014 Ford F-150 Platinum truck 2 weeks ago, and I am now in the market to replace the OEM Pirelli Scorpion ATR's.Driving in the rain was interesting as the back-end would kick out on me from time to time. The rain was not overly hard, so I was a bit surprised. This should have set off red flags in my head, but I did not think too much about...  Read More

Best All-Terrain Tire Choices for 275/55R20 Size

Not too long ago, 20-inch tires were rare, exotic and mostly reserved for high-end European SUVs or show vehicles gracing the cover of automobile magazines. Those that were available were ultra high performance tires, often with little to no all-season traction and wore very quickly. This is not the case today. In fact, 20" tires are an option on many...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I have a 2011 F-150 supercab 4x4 with the 5.0, i have the 275-55-20's. I got over 66,000 miles on these tires. They were awesome until about 45,000 miles then seemed to lose their traction in the rain. they are very quiet and resist punctures. I had them rotated every 5000 miles with my oil changes by the ford dealer. They are way better then the good years...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

Interesting how mostly Ford F-150 drivers hate these tires. I happen to buy a brand new set real cheap from a guy who didn't drive his new F-150 off the lot with these tires because of the F-150 forums bashing them so much. So I put them on my 2010 Sequoia and could not be happier. I've been in the sand, grass, a little mud, TONS of snow and wet roads and I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

This tire works very well on my LR3 - apparently not so on ford F-150ish trucks. They are very quiet. Traction in the wet and light or hard-packed snow is very good. Have not seen any anomalous tread wear or change in road noise. Very happy with this tires.   Read More
