Lightweight Wheels for Your Nissan GT-R

20" wheels are heavy. As we know, weight is the enemy of performance and it is especially marked in the form of unsprung weight. Unsprung weight is everything not supported by your vehicle's suspension like your wheels, tires and brakes. Decreasing unsprung weight will make your vehicle brake, corner and accelerate more efficiently. Opinions vary, but a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

We were so impressed with our first set of Altimax RT43 tires that we purchased another for our Jetta TDI. The car is mostly driven by my wife 120 miles/day commuting to work. With the winter we've had so far we've had little snow to deal with but again these tires didn't disappoint. Traction is great in the snow when combined to the TDI's DSG transmission....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

Best tires I've owned thus far. Has stiffer side walls and aggressive deep treads that look like they can seriously grip. On the road, handling and cornering is superior than my OEM touring tires created from the same brand. Had thick snow for a couple days in a week in michigan and these tires gripped well in it. I rarely slide unless I do it intentionally...  Read More

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

Very impressed, I bought these tires so i did not have to change out from a summer tire to a winter one and the reputation of the previous generation of BFG AT's. I drive a combination of Canadian 2wd Highway commute, 6x12 dirt bike trailer pulling and 4wd trail driving with the trailer with a Nissan X Terra 6M Off Road. These tires have exceeded my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HP2

I recently purchased a full set of Hankook Dynapro HP2 tires to replace the OEM Bridgestone Dueler's on our 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum in 20 P235/55R20. The OEM tires lasted about 30,000 miles with regular rotation ever 7,500 miles. I was a little skeptical about the Dynapro HP2 but have to say, after driving them in the dry, rain and in some light New...  Read More

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

I am 29 years old. I drive a Nissan Xterra. I am aggressive (safely) when I drive. These tires have been great. 90% of the time, I am on highway/city roads. I also drive to and through some cool places off/road. I would definitely purchase these tires again, the reason that I will not be is because I have to drive a lot on the highway. These tires are great...  Read More

Tire Pressure Monitor Systems

Recently, there's been a push for consumers to better understand their vehicles both for safety and efficiency. We now have oil life monitors, tire rotation reminders, monitors that will tell us if we have a light bulb out and since the mandate was introduced in 2007 by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Tire Pressure Monitor Systems...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Approximately a year ago I replaced the OEM (Continental Contipro) with the SERENITY PLUS on my 08 NISSAN ATIMA. They perform way better than the original Continentals. On dry roads they grip the road very well when making emergency movements. On wet roads, the tires disperses the water a lot better than the original tires at highway speeds. Hydroplaning is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I have owned 2 sets of these...first set for a Subaru WRX and now my Nissan Rogue-AWD. We live in the Snow-belt region of NY state above Syracuse on the Tug Hill. As a result we get much snow EVERY winter. These are the BEST snow tires I have ever owned. I have Blizzaks on my AWD car due to the fact I could not get the right size in the Altimax. The Blizzaks...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

I love this tire, this is my second set of these. I had them on my 1997 Nissan Truck and knew they would be perfect on our 2007 Pathfinder. The dealer installed the Dunlop AT20 on to the vehicle before we purchased it. After a couple of months they were promptly removed and replaced with the Bridgestones.I feel sorry for the poor souls that bought those...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

My first impression of these tires was that they were incredibly quiet and handled much like the all season Continentals that were stock on my car. My last car(Nissan Maxima) was much heavier, and the Toyo snow tires on it seemed to bite a bit more aggressively into a few inches of packed snow at 5 degrees. That could be a factor of the heavier car or the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

The noise level of these tires is not much higher than the Pirelli's I have for the summer. I can feel a slight differance in stability but the ride is not bad at all. Get into the nasty stuff and they are simply amazing on the Audi. I have a Nissan Titan 4x4 with new Firestone destination tires also. The Audi with the Blizzaks puts it to shame in the snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A

RSA tires are a dichotomy (extreme good/bad). I am writing to warn that GY must have changed design, manufacturing process/location or materials for the RSA for the worst. Our 2010 Nissan Maxima SV-Sport originally came with the GY RSA tire & we loved it for what it was (all-season performance style tire for family 4-door sports car). It was smooth...  Read More
