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

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 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

Aftermarket Parts That Increase Your Car's Performance

Are you the kind of driver who likes driving your vehicle a little harder than most other people? Perhaps you're a weekend warrior auto cross racer, or a member of your local SCCA chapter. Or, you could just be a driver who wants some extra performance out of your car for no practical reason other than it makes your commute more fun. Regardless of your...  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 BFGoodrich Rugged Trail T/A

Tires came from the factory on the F150. I have over 95000 on the tires after 4 years of use. The only complaint I have is the tires will cup on the front, so they need to be rotated about every 10k miles. Once they cup they become a little loud until they wear smooth again on the rear. This is my work truck so it's loaded down at all times with tool boxes,...  Read More

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

The LTX/AT2 have really held their own. I have driven these tires for 5 years and have enjoyed driving with them on a daily commute over windy hilly roads, as well as highway. Have felt solid under the truck all those miles. I have never had a flat. Recently just picked up a bolt in the tire at 87, ooo miles. they actually have tread left and would continue...  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 Firestone Destination LE 2

60,000 miles of city/highway driving and still going strong. We see all weather conditions here in SEPA and these tires have never broken traction. I have Destination T/As on my truck and love them too. Highly recommend, will purchase again but I expect to get another 10-15k out if this set.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I have always bought Bridgestone tires for all of my vehicles. Would highly recommend them for all cars and trucks in all driving scenarios. The original equipment Michelin MXM4 that came on the car barely got to 30K miles. I hope I have great use of these Bridgestones as I have with every set I've purchased before... will review again after putting some...  Read More
