Firestone Winterforce LT
Initial Review: 2,000 miles on tires
January 03, 2012

This is my second set of WinterForce tires for a pickup truck.

My first set was installed on a 1999 Ford Ranger. They were fantastic, but as the seasons wore on I did have trouble balancing them.

We eventually had to use a Hunter Road Force to get a acceptable balance.

On the 2005 Chevy, these tires were as quiet as the all seasons I had on (Bridestone).

They balanced perfectly on a standard Coats 950 wheel balancer.

So say these are great tires in heavy snow is an understatement. Plus, I was shocked at how quiet they are. Firestone made some good strides since I purchased my first pair maybe 5 years ago.

Would I but them again? You bet. In heavy snow, they can't be beat.

I will see in the coming years how they hold up overall.
