Tire Rack Now Offers Cooper Tires

We often heard “do you carry Cooper tires?” Because of their restrictive distribution agreement, our response was always “no.” That’s all changed. We now offer Cooper’s Cobra Radial G/T performance tires and CS5 and CS3 touring tires, as well as Discover and Evolution truck tires, along with other lines used as Original Equipment on new vehicles. An American...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

I bought these tires when I first moved back to Vermont from Florida. So I don't have much to compare there tires to but I will say my first few winter storms I had my jeep 4x4 every time. But after getting more comfortable driving I started leaving it I rwd and after that I very rarely had to use 4x4 the only time I used 4x4 was when I had to drive up...  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 Dunlop Signature HP

These Dunlops are excellent, after reading a few reviews, I was a bit hesitant in getting them, but an incident on the highway quickly changed my mind. I'm glad I went with my gut and got these. They are way quieter than the OEM Michellins that came with the car. With an AWD vehicle like the MDX these tires take to cornering real well, I'm no longer fighting...  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

Introducing the General Grabber X3

For those that don't know, I have been running the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires for the last two years. I have only about 35,000 miles on them, and they have approximately 50% tread depth remaining, but they were 315/70R17 (about 35" by 12.5") and I wanted to put larger tires on my Jeep. The General Grabber X3 (with red letters) was my choice in...  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

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

I purchased a set of the 315x70x17R - C Rated - BFG TAK02 for my 2 door Jeep... you see, prior to these tires I was riding on a set of Nittos with an E rated load index. Yeah, riding on E rated tires on a 2 door Wrangler isn't great, so don't let anybody tell you otherwise.I was apprehensive about these tires for a couple of reasons: for one, these are the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM

Original tires on my Willys W edition Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. You need to rotate them every 3,000 to 3,500 miles to avoid cupping and the associated resonance vibrations you will get at certain speeds. I do a 5 tire rotation and it really evens the wear. They are incredibly loud after rotation them for the first few hundred miles. Overall they are a great...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

These are a great snow tire. Don't let the cheaper price of these tires dissuade your from purchasing them. These tires along with my WRX's AWD system handle snow better than the Jeep that I previously owned. Would definetly recommend these tires to anyone looking for a snow tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Very quiet and unusually good in up to 6 inches of unplowed snow and great on ice. I have a front wheel drive and so, the tires are very important to winter driving. Not at all disappointed. Dry and wet conditions are no problem at all. Unusually smooth on the highway. I don't experience the apparent drag of the stock tires that came with the jeep. Would...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM

These are the Jeep OEM tires for my 2009 Wrangler Rubicon. They are the best tires for the money if you want to do off-road. They will claw up steep dirt trails, skip over boulder and grip like lizards. I've driven in deep snow and icy roads and my Jeep will go faster than all Subaru, or Toyota 4x4 shod with inferior tires. They are just like the Wrangler...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

Im not really savy in explaining the technicals of the tires but Im highly impressed! I had these Yokohama's Geolander AT/ S for a couple years now and I am an aggresive driver. Lets just say I believe in my tires until they let me down. These tires have not let me down yet! Living in Michigan I worried when hitting massive pot holes, yet they still handled...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2

These tires and new wheels were purchased for winter driving and so far we have had just a few days of light snow. The tires along with a bit wider wheel have increased the Jeep's handling stability in corners, with some increase in tire noise but not at all off putting, I like the change in handling so much I will leave them on year round over the OEMs.   Read More

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

It is somewhat difficult to distinguish the performance benefits of these tires from those of permanent AWD. A set of Yokohama ENVigor ultra high performance all-season tires, which preceded the current set of Cinturato P7 All Season Plus tires, provides the primary benchmark by which comparison may be drawn.Winter Storm Jonas of 2016 was a challenge for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I just turned over 40K on a set of duratracs for my F150. I am very impressed. I would estimate I have another 10-15K left on this set. They are getting bit loud as expected for an agressive AT tire with some wear.Snow traction is awesome. I can back up my driveway (which is on a hill) in 2wd. I couldn't do that with the stockers. I read alot of reviews...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I installed these on my Jeep Wrangler Sport (model yr 2004) after the Mickey Thompson Bajas wore out in under 10k!. The Scorpions lasted me approximately 25,000 miles until I replaced them for a new set. I used to deflate down to 10-13 psi and do hardcore dune bashing in the desert, and re-inflated back up to 35 psi once all the fun was done with. They...  Read More

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

These tires are awesome. 95% of the time I'm on road, and they handle excellently. For such a large sidewall, at road pressure they still handle great (especially on a Jeep). Dry traction is superb, wet traction is very good, but is the only thing I think could improve a little. Even in snow and ice they are responsive and handle very well. I only have about...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture AT51

Ok, I spent hours reading reviews about tires and what to put on our Jeep. I wanted something that could handle our Colorado mountain roads in the winter time along with something that could get us to a trail head in the summer time with getting a flat. It would be a bonus if tires also had a smooth ride and quiet as this is the family vehicle. So far I only...  Read More

Are My Tires Too Old?

How old is too old is an oft-asked question. While the industry guidelines say six years in use or 10 years from build, your experience can vary. The life span you see from any tire can vary greatly depending on how it is used. For example, counter to common belief, an infrequently used tire actually lives a harder life than one that is exercised on a...  Read More
