Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I bought these tires from the Tire Rack on 10/6/15 with 83,000 miles on my truck.Previously I went through 2 sets of Goodrich RuggedTrail T/As which I liked. I bought these as they were a great price, had good reviews and thought I┬┐d try something different while saving $100s.I am a true car guy and back yard mechanic. I take good care of my vehicles and I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

I have a 2012 Ford Escape 4wd, I got it last April with 34,xxx on it, these tires were brand new from the dealer. They suffice in the summer, fall and spring. Quiet, smooth, and yields great fuel economy, (26-28 in the summer). Excellent dry and wet grip, and cornering stability considering the profile (truck balloons, not sport sedan)Now the real reason for...  Read More

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

In dry weather the Michelin LTX AT2 grips the road well and corners nicely. In damp or wet weather the tires always break loose accelerating from a stop. Hydroplaning is so-so. I don't feel confident pushing the pace when it's wet outside. As far as snow is concerned, forget it. It's like being on ski's. I was trying to go up a very slight hill on my street,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

Wow, I'm really happy with these. I've got these on a 2011 Ford F-150 4x4 SuperCrew and I'm impressed. These replaced the OEM tires that the truck came with. The ride is much better with these, smooth... A tiny bit noisier, but not an issue.They seem to be wearing really well. I've had to make a few long road trips now, long distance highway driving. No...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS 60

I have had these tires on my Silverado for the summer. When I bought them I thought I was getting Altimax tires but was given Grabbers instead. The Altimax tires on my Subaru Forester have been fantastically quiet. These Grabbers scream like a banshee! I am very disappointed! When I compare the tread pattern to the Altimax the only difference I can see is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

I have never been a fan of Bridgestone tires. They Chop up all the time and never provided the best wear like Michelin, Pirelli and Dunlop. My Brother works for Bridgestone and I decided to try them out on my X5. I immediately noticed how smooth and quiet they are on my BMW X5 3.0l X-drive with adaptive drive, rear damper load level suspension and active...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

I replaced the OEM Pirelli Scorpion ATRs that came on my 2014 Ford F-150 Platinum truck with Goodyear Wrangler All Terrain with Kevlar tires after our first snow storm. A massive improvement in all areas. See my review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR for the fun I had with them.I have driven in a couple snow / ice events since getting these Goodyears. I did not...  Read More

You Can Run But You Can't Hide From Mother Nature

Do you need to run winter / snow tires? If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow or your vehicle comes equipped with summer tires from the factory, you should strongly consider installing winter tires.┬áDedicated snow tires will enhance an all-wheel drive vehicle's winter capability, make an intrinsically "bad-in-snow" car better and...  Read More

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
