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.

21 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.

22 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

Firestone is not (USA). They are owned by Bridgestone which is Japanese and therefore something I refuse to buy. Americans need to support Goodyear which is last American owned tire maker.

I had two Kumho Tires that split bands and had to be replaced before the treadwear was significant. It also says made in China, not in South Korea. Regardless. They seem like a defective tire. I would not recommend them.
