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 Continental TrueContact

Bought these tires based on wet performance reviews. South Florida climate demands good wet and dry traction, and these tires deliver. I also wanted a smooth, quiet ride for the Town Car, and BONUS! these were also highly rated for comfort. Much more quiet and smooth than the Goodyear tires they replaced, MUCH longer tread life, far better traction...  Read More

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

With a combination of highway daily driving and backroad traveling I HIGHLY recommend these tires as a replacement for the Goodyears that came on the car new. I destroyed the first set within the first 7000 miles. No, they do not grip quite as well as the highly focused Goodyears that came on the car, however, the slight amount of grip given up is well worth...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Just got pre-owned 2015 BMW 640xi Gran Sport with 5,000 miles. Came with original Eagle run flat tires. These tires have an awful reputation and my previous experience with OEM Goodyear Eagle tires of all types has been very negative- poor wear, no mileage warranty and noisy. Did a lot of research and discovered the Bridgestone Drive Guard Grand Touring Run...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

First the good news. The Bridgestone Driveguard tires would appear to be superior to the OEM Goodyear runflats in ride, wet/dry traction, and handling. The bad news. After 16,000 miles and 3 rotations, the rear 2 tires were worn down to 3/32 and 4/32 respectively. Nothing abnormal was noted at each of the 3 rotations.Blissful ignorance would have continued...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I only just mounted the wheels that hold these tire, and have begun to break them in (500 miles is suggested, but I think after 300 I have done the job already). Reason for break-in is to wear away the releasing agent that is used to remove the tire from its mold during manufacturing (Read Tire Rack R&A info...good stuff there).During my break in time I have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

Had the OEM Goodyears and put 50,000 on them.they were ok.then got a flat and decided to replace them. Went onto tire rack website and found a great deal on the dunlops..outstanding value cuz they were on a close out special sale.needless to say I got another flat tire on one of the new dunlops and the warranty process was unbelievably easy. Point is I work...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Fortera HL Edition

I have a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee (JGC). I put 62,775 on the OEM set of tires with no complaints. I only changed them out as we were going into winter (which turned out to be a non-event that year) and could probably have gotten another 10K or so miles out of them. I replaced them with the same tire as there was no option in the 265/50-20 size at that time....  Read More

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

Had the Goodyear Wrangler tires from the Ram Factory. Immediately noticed a significant smoother ride with the Michelin Defenders. Also, I'm more confident on wet surfaces. I am expecting at least 70K miles from these tires. That's what I use to get on the Michelin Defender predecessor M/S tires I ran on my suburban.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Have run these about 1,000-1,500 miles since mounting them about a month ago. Exceptional tires. They replaced the daily a/s tires (Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric) I had on my car's 19-inch Cadiz wheels for the previous 40k miles. I also have a set of Pilot Super Sports for track. Far and away these tires are better so far than both of the others. Versus the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

For 85% of driving this tire is fine, but if you want to drive more spirited, be forewarned. You can feel the flex of the sidewall entering curves...so in a sense you steer left or right and you can feel the load shift on the tire, then the steering input takes effect. Not confidence inspiring. These replaced Goodyear OEM RS-A's. They had a much lower...  Read More

All-New Goodyear Endurance Trailer Tires are Made in the USA

Another winter season is behind us and temperatures are rising enough that many enthusiasts are getting their warm-weather toys out for summertime fun. Whether you own a boat, jet skis, ATVs, race cars or dirt bikes, you probably own a trailer that you use to transport these vehicles.   While checking the condition of your trailer, be sure to take some time...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

Thanks to TireRack reviews and ratings, these quickly replaced the OEM BFG Radial Long Trails on my Xterra, tires that I previously described as providing irresponsible. (I stand by that assessment.)After the first 15,000 miles or so, I thought the Adventurer All-Terrains had done a fine job—not exceptional, but fine. In fact (and it pains me admit this),...  Read More

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

I've just had a set of BFG Allterrain KO2 put on my 2015 Ram 1500 4X4. One of my Goodyear Wrangler SRA split across the face of the tread while I was on a well maintained mainroad logging road. I went to this size because I wanted a 10 ply tire for towing as when I am loaded up I'm a little over 14000lbs between the trailer and the truck. So far these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Brand new set of 4 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus 215/55 R17 as of May 10, 2017 installed on our 2014 Nissan Juke SV. We will periodically update our review as the miles add on. These tires replaced OEM Goodyear RS-A that lasted 51,000 miles. We were looking for a tire with a better warranty, improved wet performance for our Florida living, and a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

BEST SUMMER TIRES EVER. Save yourself the time and just buy them. I've had Kumho, Sumitomo, Goodyear, Pirelli, Bridgestone and a lot of the Michelin's before the PS4. The PS4's are light years ahead. Unbelievable traction in all conditions, even at the limits. Yet somehow they are super quiet and the ride quality is amazing. Soft, supple even. I have them on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

After a lot of thought and looking at reviews I decided to replace the tires I had on my Audi it came with Goodyear's. The price for those tires was like 198.00. I looked around for a good high performance summer tire and these BF Goodrich tires looked like they fit the bill. The only thing that worried me was they said that under 50 mph there was road noise...  Read More

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

Replaced OEM Goodyear LS 2 and these are a significant improvement! Even with hard, spirited acceleration, they do not break loose or engage the traction control. Great grip in dry and they are quiet and smooth riding, even over railroad tracks. This smoother, quieter ride could be due to these being new 235 50 as opposed to the original 225 50's, however,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I have about 22-23k on this DriveGuard tires, and I can honestly say they are THE BEST tires I've ever owned. This car came with Continental tires from the factory, and they worked, but didn't do anything specially great. I would consider them a middle of the road tire. Since then I had a set of Goodyear's which had a good price, but were really sub standard...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

OE on the Mustang; just taken off for winter tires. Overall, i was impressed with the dry weather traction--enough stick to make the car fun to drive without a harsh ride. Steering response feels good. Downside was noise level--the Blizzak snows were actually a bit quieterOverall a decent tire for the Mustang Ecoboost--no experience in snow; wet weather...  Read More
