Best Car Tire Brands

Unless something goes very wrong, your car's tires are the only part of the vehicle that make contact with the road. As such, the driving experience your car provides is largely dependent on the tires underneath it.

There are a number of benefits to having the right tires on your car including better gas mileage, improved traction, smoother ride, less noise, and improved performance, but perhaps the most important is the safety of the people in and around it. You may have the most advanced anti-lock braking system, multiple other driver assists, all wheel drive, and more, but if your tires are worn out or not right for the conditions, you're going to have a hard time accelerating, turning, and stopping.

So whether your tires are getting a bit on the thin side, aren't suited for the season, or otherwise are holding back your car's potential, it may be a good time to look into purchasing another set. There are few things you can do for your car that will have the positive impact of a new set of tires.

The Top TenXW

1Michelin (France)

Michelin tires have never let me down in the 45 years I have been driving them. I feel they are the best tire on the road bar none!

Michelin takes the knowledge it obtains dominating the 24 Hours of Le Mans and applies it not only to their car tires, but also to the tires they produce for everything from bicycles to earthmovers to airplanes.

2Continental (Germany)

Founded in 1871, these guys were producing tires for carriages and bicycles decades before there even was a market for care tires. With that sort of experience, it makes sense that Continental would be at the top of the list.

I used tires in truck business for 12 years and these brands in luxury cars like BMW Rover and Jaguar cars

Goodyear has given us the best mileage from a tire. Rotation of tires also help us in getting the best mileage from our tires.

4Bridgestone (Japan)

Best tyre of Indian roads

Awesome tyre ever

5Pirelli (Italy)

I'm an American driving only Toyotas and no matter what comes on the car from the dealer, I always buy Pirelli. They've gotten me back and forth along several thousand miles in rain, sand, heat and even snow. Once a Pirelli Girl, ALWAYS a Pirelli Girl!

Same here, Pirelli sold me especially in Nairobi roads are horrendous but Pirelli holds tough! Dave
