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 Ten

Michelin (France)

Michelin can't be beat for smooth ride, grip and tread life for high mileage situations. If time (age) is the main factor as opposed to mileage... Michelin is surpassed by Cooper

Michelin make good tyres for any weather, they don't have to be fancy looking they just have to be good and that's what I like about Michelin.

I've got now the new cross climate for all seasons (approved winter/snow tires even in Switzerland..) and I have to say they are the best, and not obliged now to permute them twice a year, winter/summer..

The dark knight in shining armour is the only thing I can think of. Fortunate enough of a reason for this weekend but I'm sure you'll find out if it was a little too much of it and it quite some other than the only thing that was a lot

BFGoodrich (USA)

BFG is not American. Shouldn't have (USA) beside it. Michelin owns BFG and they are French. Goodyear is the ONLY American owned tire maker left in the world.

They are quiet and smooth, and are lasting long although some cracks after many many miles I'm not counting but it has been years vaguely. Maybe 6 years? Holy cra time flies. I b ought the touring for my civic.

Used in most late American muscle cars

Along with Michelin it's the tires with used, without any problems, long life tires, safe.

Bridgestone (Japan)

My family's life was saved one day thanks to the outstanding performance of our Bridgestone tires in the rain. I will forever be grateful.

My Bridgestone tires have lasted me 4 years with no problems!

Best tyre of Indian roads

This brand is really good because it,s tough

Hankook (South Korea)

Hankook? Yeah right. You buy a hankook you must not give a crap about anything.

Hankook makes a great tire, great innovation and designing. Always reasonably priced and a great performer.

All products of south korea is the best and superb.

One of the best tire company in the world I must say

Goodyear (USA)

Nothing but the good ol NASCAR eagle f1 shredding Daytona to this day

I run a set of Douglas tires on my accord they're a Walmart budget tire owned by Goodyear, they claim 40,000 miles warranty, I've run over a sidewalk curb by accident and didn't affect my tires at all! Impressive for a mere $41 a tire from Walmart no less

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

Goodyear tires are the absolute best tire money can buy, from every standpoint. They are the last American owned tire company and are made in the USA. Goodyears have always lasted longer and gripped better than any other tire I've owned. They are great looking and are safe. The ONLY tire I trust to carry my wife and kids around every day. Love Goodyear Tires!

Continental (Germany)

Last Mercedes 2014 ML-350 we purchased came with Continental tires on it from the dealer. They where quiet and good tires, but the life expectancy is not anywhere near as good as a set of Michelin tires. I took the vehicle in to the dealer for service at 30,000 miles and was told I was going to need to replace my tires soon. I was shocked as we had only had this vehicle since late 2013 and it was less than a year old. I priced the Continental tires at a local nationwide tire store and they where over $400.00 a tire to replace them with a life span of 30,000 to 40,000 miles. I decided to put Michelin tires on the vehicle instead for way less than the replacement Continentals plus I got a $75.00 credit card for buying a set. The Continental tires are quieter on rough roads and certain highway surfaces, but it isn't enough to really complain about nor justify the price difference in the two tire brands. I've always been able to get 75,000 miles or more out of a good set of Michelin ...more

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

Anyone can say what they want. Germans are the best when it comes to automobile domain. I hate american muscle cars, I prefer an '86 E30 at any time. Why would you like to buy a car that has a huge an not necessary engine with not so may horses, and it can be driven fast only in straight line.

Cooper (USA)

I have run cooper tires on all my vehicles for years without a problem and would recommend them for any vehicle.

Cooper didn't sell out to a foreign company

Cooper tires ARE American made and owned. They have bought some foreign companies.

I think Cooper Tires are the most underrated tires on the market. They are fantastic tires and I use them exclusively on my vehicles.

Nokian (Finland)

Been on my Blazer for about 60,000 miles. I'll be getting a new set in about another 5 or 10,000.

Very best tire for winter driving in northern climates.

Really excellent tire from the only tire company in the world that has a year-round winter test track. I have the Nokian Rotiiva AT ATV Radial Tire - 235/65R17 108T on my MDX and my wife did not get stuck or have any trouble even when they had mandatory chain warnings in Denver this winter. They also work better than the aqua tread when I had to go through standing water on the interstate in Topeka Kansas with my 93 Fleetwood. I have always been loyal to Michelin but I have to give it to Nokian. They are actually better than Michelin! They are my new favorites.

The World Best Company Ever.

Nexen (South Korea)

Just bought a set of 4. Handle very well, smooth ride and durable. For the price a very comparable brand to Dunlop, Pirelli and Continental.

Have this tire on my used Inifniti G37x purchased from 2013. It has been 3 years and the tires are always in good condition. But need to be changed recently

Nexen's tires are very underrated. Plus with their warranty program you're really protected throughout the entire time you're using the tires. Highly recommend. Very durable and grip is solid.

Best tyre for snow and mud

Dunlop (England)

Its dunlop lads

I have had a set on for 25000 and just replaced the front, back still have 5mm

Owned by Goodyear. Not a bad tire at all.

Best traction in years

The Contenders

Kleber (France)

nice

Really good tires, I've got them during about 8 years, 120,000 km without any problems, also the price is ok.

Kleber is not really known and not really diffused, it belongs to Michelin (from 1981).
They make as well good tire as michelin.

Uniroyal (USA)

These tires work great and last long on my 3500 Chevy heavy duty truck

Smooth ride. Good wear. Good price.

Best ride you will ever have

Uniroyal Tires are trickle down technology from Michelin brand, and are marketed as a great value for the money tire. That being said, Uniroyal ia s great choice for people on a budget who want piece of mind when buying tires

Toyo (Japan)

This was always in need for speed

The best truck tires.

Great off road tyres

Great value for tour money

Pirelli (Italy)

I believe the Tyres that come with a new car should be replaced by that same brand Tyre, having said that Pirelli aren't cheap and you get what you pay for but Pirelli do have great grip in wet..Every other brand of Tyre will claim they are better off Han their rivals but I still believe you should replace with the Vehicle Manufacturers Tyre recommendations. I've used Pirelli on my Model and if I swap to another Model I will use that Manufacturers recommendations.

Pirelli tires will get you to your destination on any kind road and in any kind of weather. My Outback was transformed as we forged through the storm never losing traction and maintaining control in a blinding downpour that had others skidding off the roadway. Love the power of Pirelli!

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!

Best tire made. European classics. Watch European racing - they're the ultimate there, which is as good as it gets.

Firestone (USA)

Run Firestone on my car for winter, excellent traction and even at spirited speeds they grip great! Great price as well and have never had a problem. Just got rid of a set of 4 Cooper's for example two came out of round, not very happy with Cooper.

Been using the Firestone Destination tire since they came out, truck after truck. They never wear out, they handle great, good in mud & snow, good for hauling, as good as you are going to get on the highway.

Love the Destination AT's on my Jeep Wrangler. They are quiet on the highway and can do anything I ask off road

I bought 14 Firestone tires for my various vehicles during the past year, All is well.

Yokohama (Japan)

These tires are definitely the best I have ever bought! Highly recommended!

Had these on my car for seven years before I needed to replace them from the dry rot. Long lasting tires apparently!

Makes the Chelsea kit so obviously the best

This company makes excellent winter tires if you live in a sub-zero zone.

Falken (Japan)

Quite ride, great traction, long lasting tread,reasonable price. I have run them on 4 different vehicles with no issues.

The Falken's wear and perform well. We use them on our 1500 Avalanche and are satisfied. They look good

I has this tire on my Corolla for about 4 years the only reason I had to replace them was because my car had very bad aliment problems

Had these put on in 2009. Never, ever had a puncture, leak, anything. Still going strong now at 2017.

Apollo (India)

I am using I in my car they are the best

Best for indian roads, if the tyre helps and supports indian roads, defenetly it can do better in all over the worlds roads

East or west apollo os the best

Nice tyres. With smooth ride

Vredestein (Netherlands)

Very good tires with very good prices on dry and wet road

Had 4 on my Nissan Frontier, 4x4. Could not get that thing to slide no matter how hard I tried. The traction in 10" of snow was incredible.

My father (many years ago) purchased a set for his Cortina that had previously been supplied from new with crossplies- the difference was incredible in all aspects & conditions, great tyres & relatively inexpensive, definitely worth seeking out!

Tires stick to the road like glue, very responsive.

Achilles (USA)

Achilles is Indonesian tire brand. I think they are most valuable tires in the market.

Nice and grip well

Just fitted two on rear of my Seat altea xl.The tread looks good.Only time will tell.

I like u help me to get

General Tires (USA)

These are great tires they really are their tires are made of real fine Rubber and the rubbers are good I mean you can't get a better Tire in this unless you were to steal one

Have purchased Grabber AT2's for my Dodge Dakota and absolutely loved them. Just got Altimax snow tires, we'll see.

I have a set of the GMAX A/S 05. These tires are highly rated at a great price. They do really well in wet/dry weather & snow/ice. They are true All-Season Tires.

Have a set of gmax as 05 and love them.

MRF (India)

Mrf have been doing exceptionally well in terms of advancing. 2 years on they supply the air force

Best tyres with best quality no doubts.. It must be in top ten.. Of world

Best tires with best quality no doubts.. It must be in top ten.. Of world.

GREAT Tire brand most of my family uses it

Bugatti (France)

Bugatti is one of my favourite car companies! But no idea how Bugatti is here. The Bugatti Chiron and Chiron Super Sport used special Michelin tyres for the rubber to not bun down.

Bugatti is not a tire brand is a brand of a French car producer, located in France, which is a now a subsidiary of the VW group (biggest car maker in the world).

Coker (USA)

GOOD

Kelly Tires (USA)

Kelly is owned by Goodyear and even though they don't have a huge product line, Kelly makes a heck of a tire. Especially for the price. I've run Kelly tires for years and have always gotten many many trouble free miles and great traction from them.

Used to be a Kelly plant in my hometown, and then it left following a local recession
