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

This is an E-Load rated tire, meaning that they're a little heavy and overkill for my smaller 4x4 Tacoma. However, I think it's the reason they've held up so incredibly well- the little casting hairs are still visible on the treads. My friend has larger 33 tires on his diesel 2500 Silverado, and they're a lot more worn down. I will acknowledge that my...  Read More

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 Firestone Destination A/T

I bought these last year and have over 25,000 on them now. Some minor cupping but that is the trucks fault, the ranger is tough on tires for some reason. (This is my fourth Ranger they were all the same) Fairly quiet for the tread, good tracking, excellent stopping and cornering. In the snow they are also just fine. I will be buying another set when these...  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 BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

With tires, you pay for what you get; and these tires are DEFINITELY worth paying for. I live up in the foothills of Vermont, and drive everything from deep mud and rocks up to our hunting camp, to up and down the highway for work. I couldn't be happier with a set of tires being able to handle it all. I was skeptical of how the bigger tread would handle the...  Read More

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

I got these for my 2015 Tahoe, and they made this truck what it is - luxury SUV that can go anywhere. These tires are phenomenal. Please don't listen to people bashing these tires in winter conditions. People bashing these tires for poor snow performance should learn : a. These are not winter tires. b. how to drive in winter conditions.Tires are performing...  Read More

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

The only tire I will buy for my 2011 F150 Raptor. Looked at other tires but decided to stay with original equipment. These are incredible shoes! I now have nearly 50000 on my second set and still have 5-7k left, not down to the wear bars. In terms of traction...these tires have taken everything I've thrown at them and continue to shine. Sand dune? Yup, just...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

Took off worn-out Firestone HT's. Good work tires but rode terrible. Michelins smoothed out the jarring bumps. Traction is unbelievable! Wet? No problem. Snow (we had some in S.W. TN!)? No problem. I don't get close to deep sand or mud (these are not mud tires, and this heavy truck will sink fast), but navigate light mud and sand with confidence.Whisper...  Read More

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

I have gone through 5 sets of these BFG rugged trail tires. If you are sticking to mostly highway and city driving and occasional dirt roads this tire is perfect. I often take my truck to the snow and have to put chains on. If there is any ice or snow on the road this tire loses grip immediately. Even brand new these tires do not hold grip on wet surface let...  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

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

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

Incredible all around performance. Expansion joints are felt and heard, but I think it's more attributed to my suspension set-up than the tires. Great responsiveness in wet and dry. Good grip in deep snow. Playing around on muddy curves is fun with these things! I'd definitely recommend these tires and will buy again when they're needed. Rotated once so far,...  Read More

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

I have had these tires on another truck and loved them. I had the LTX M/S2's, which are the same tires. I have a 2wd with a limited slip differential and have never been stuck yet. I pull a 8k lb boat and have never been worried at the boat ramp. Even at low tide, these tires never slip. I have never been in snow with these tires, so I can't give an accurate...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

If you want the best tire for the average driver, this tire Brand and Model has no equal. It is supremely quiet and silky smooth and has great braking (stopping) ability. For some reason when Michelin started to built these tires back in about 2008 or thereabouts they got everything right. You really can't ask more out of a tire than these. The only place...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber Arctic LT

Great tires! Live in Colorado mountains. Constant changing weather and road conditions. Even in conditions of water on ice, a true test for any tire, no slippage. I drive in both 2 wheel and 4 wheel drive, depending upon time of day, road conditions, and traffic volume. Hunted off road with theses tires on truck in 8 inches of snow for three days. No issues,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I've been looking for a good All Season to replace my stock pirellis on my camaro, and I was mainly looking at the DWS for the snow performance because I like to enjoy my car year round and needed my car to atleast be drivable but these tires blew me away! I first got them a day before a snow storm so I really put them to the test and let met tell you that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I live just outside of Boston so we get the occasion big nor'easter. These tires have been fantastic on both ice and in the snow compared to my all-seasons. I can be out there surrounded by trucks and SUVs and the Fit can totally hold its own now. I used to have to maintain momentum going into intersections with any kind of plow induced snowbanks and now,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge Run Flat

I bought these during the first snow and ice in the Portland area in December and was eager to test them. Luckily we got a nice storm the past few days and I am sold on these tires. My girlfriend lives on a nice hill where the UPS truck in chains would spin and my MDX with the other tires would slide. After installation these tires climbed that hill like I...  Read More

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

Amazing highway tire. Quiet, smooth and responsive. Pleasantly surprised at snow and slush traction. My Tacoma is 2wd but it feels in total control like 4wd, so long I don't make sudden changes or spin the tires. Perfect tire for my TRD suspension and fits my style of driving. I highly recommend for any light truck regardless of drivetrain.   Read More

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

I bought this tire to replace OEM Toyo which wore out at 30000 miles. It is about the same in noise level, almost nothing, the tire gives a more truck like ride, a little firmer than the Toyo's. Even though I have only put on 500 miles, I like the tire. Light snow is no problem, haven't had a chance yet to evaluate the tire in deep snow. Gravel roads it...  Read More
