Best Car Tire BrandsUnless 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 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..

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

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
I think Cooper Tires are the most underrated tires on the market. They are fantastic tires and I use them exclusively on my vehicles.
BEAST!V 18 Comments
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.
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.
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
These tires are USELESS in snow.
No grip on ANY AMOUNT of snow...
They behave like bald tires.
Car slides all over the road even in 1 or 2 inches of snow...
A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY.!
I had Hankook tires before...
They were great...
Especially in rain and snow...
And long lasting too!
My tire "professional" told me the Nexen were
JUST AS GOOD as Hankook.
WAS HE WRONG!
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. - ignoble
My Bridgestone tires have lasted me 4 years with no problems!
Best tyre of Indian roads
I just like their nameV 19 Comments
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 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!
Goodyear has given us the best mileage from a tire. Rotation of tires also help us in getting the best mileage from our tires.
Best tires, especially in winter and all season. The German test magazines prove it.V 25 Comments Learn More at Tire Rack9
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.
One of the best tire company in the world I must say
One of the best brandsV 12 Comments
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
This was always in need for speed
The best truck tires.
Great off road tyres
Verry good to be used in a lot of things, but awesome to DRIFT - AtomicXV 2 Comments
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!
A tremendous all weather tire mfr. I live in MN so believe it. Ran this brand on both a Ford Expedition and a Chevy Cruze. Great quiet ride performanceV 19 Comments
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
The best for luxury sportV 17 Comments
Its dunlop lads
Owned by Goodyear. Not a bad tire at all.
Best traction in years

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.

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.
Bought AT2 grabber, best grip and economic than Nitto.
Have a set of gmax as 05 and love them.
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.
The World Best Company Ever.

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.

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