Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 Review

Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 Review: Exceptional Winter Tire for Crossovers and SUVs

Bridgestone’s new entry in the winter tire category for crossovers, SUVs, and light trucks brings many improvements. The Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 inherits the DM-V1, which was already one of the best winter tires on the market.

The Japanese tiremaker is already at the forefront with its Blizzak winter tire lineup, winning many accolades throughout the years. That shouldn’t come as a surprise, though – Bridgestone is a premium tire company that knows how to design an excellent tire. With this a set of winter tires, every car can drive good on snow and ice.

Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+ Review

Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ Review: Ultra-High-Performance All-Season Tires

At this moment, the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ is one of the best ultra-high-performance all-season tires overall. That’s especially true if you care about performance and driving enjoyment.

Namely, Michelin did a great job making the tire perform outstandingly well in various conditions. Handling on dry roads is best-in-class, and it continues to be exceptional on wet pavement. Moreover, the French engineers did a great job improving the snow traction, which is very good for the category.

Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar Review

Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar Review: Excellent Overall

With the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar, Goodyear wanted to offer owners of trucks and SUVs responsive and comfortable driving on the street, and upgraded traction for off-roading.

Anyway, what I want to say is that if you have an off-road capable machine, the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar will be right for you. Moreover, Goodyear offers the tire in multiple sizes, ranging from 16-inch wheel diameter to 20-inch wheel diameter.

Firestone Winterforce 2 Review

Firestone Winterforce 2 Review: Excellent Severe-Weather Tire

The Winterforce 2 is available throughout North America. Almost every tire retailer has this tire. Besides, Firestone offers the tire in many dimensions, including the most popular ones. The company decided to start with a 14-inch wheel diameter and up to 18-inch wheel diameter.

With these dimensions, Firestone covers a large portion of the cars that roll down the roads today. These include city cars, compact cars, family and mid-size sedans, minivans, station wagons, crossovers, and even some coupes. Only larger premium cars aren’t covered.

Firestone All Season Review

Firestone All Season Review: Good, But Far from Exceptional

According to Firestone, the All-Season is a tire that delivers quality, value, and dependability. These are broad terms that don’t tell us a lot about the tires, mind you. Fortunately, the company shares some details about the tire that tells us more about its characteristics.

The first thing that the company boasts about is the deep sipes across the tread of the tire. These should increase traction in rainy conditions and also improve the hydroplaning resistance. Also, the deep sipes improve traction on snow-covered roads, thanks to the higher number of biting edges compared to other tires.

Meanwhile, Firestone carefully designed the tread pattern to provide performance in dry, wet, and snowy conditions. In other words, this tire should provide you with good traction throughout the year, thus the all-season moniker.

Firestone WeatherGrip Review

Firestone WeatherGrip Review: Winter Tire in an All-Season Clothing

But what are the real advantages of all-weather tires, really? Well, they definitely offer much better traction on snow and ice. Not on the level of winter tires, sure, but at least the traction is usable in most areas in the world. In my experience, all-season tires are only suited for very light snow, and won’t work on ice. All-weather tires, on the other hand, work both on snow and ice.

Fortunately, if you drive a passenger vehicle in the U.S., the chances are that the WeatherGrip will fit. Firestone offers its grand-touring all-season tire in many popular sizes, ranging from 15-inch wheel diameter and up to 19-inch wheel diameter. With these dimensions, the company covers compact cars, mid-size sedans, coupes, station wagons, minivans, and even crossovers. But is the Firestone WeatherGrip any good?

Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo 3 Review

Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 3 Review: Versatile Performance both On-/Off-Road

If your SUV has touring or highway tires, good luck climbing big mountains. The tires simply don’t have enough traction. On the contrary, real off-road tires might be cumbersome to drive on the road. That is especially true if you visit the wilderness only once in a while. Well, that’s where the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 3 comes in.

Bridgestone’s newest all-terrain tire focuses more on the road side of the spectrum, unlike say, the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2. However, it also offers much better off-road traction than touring and highway tires. With a set of Revo 3’s, you can enjoy a safe and comfortable drive on the road, but also have the ability to attack some more serious terrain.

Hankook Dynapro AT2 Review

Hankook Dynapro AT2 Review: Suffers in the Rain

To compete favorably to other tires, the Hankook Dynapro AT2 should either excel in some category or offer a balanced set of qualities. Moreover, customers expect that an all-terrain tire will provide them with safe driving on the road, comfortable and quiet ride, good off-road traction, and excellent durability.

But how does the tire perform in the real world? Well, that’s what I’ll try to answer in my detailed Hankook Dynapro AT2 review. Below, we’ll talk about various qualities of the tire, including on-road dynamics, off-road traction and durability, treadlife, and comfort. Before we do that, though, let’s see what features Hankook implemented in the tire to make it a viable option.

Continental TrueContact Tour Review

Continental TrueContact Tour Review: A Super Accomplished Touring Tire

One of the best examples of why touring tires are so popular is the TrueContact Tour. Continental’s standard touring all-season tire is one of the most popular on the market. It’s very safe in dry and wet conditions, and drives well over snow, too. It glides gently and quietly on the road and lasts for a very long time.

Bridgestone vs Michelin

Bridgestone vs Michelin: Which is Better?

Many people asked me the age-old question: Bridgestone vs Michelin – Which is Better? And, the answer is not as straightforward as you might think. Moreover, if you consider tires from these brands, you’re in a very good spot already. And, you surely won’t go wrong if you choose either brand. All tires from Michelin and Bridgestone are one of the safest around, especially in the conditions they are intended for. Besides, both companies produce some of the longest-lasting tires around, and most of their products are quiet and comfortable.
