Choosing a Tire Brand

If the Golden Wrench selections don’t suit your requirements or price range, there are a lot of reliable brands to pick from. If we could give one piece of advice, it would be to go with a tyre brand you are familiar with. Save your money if someone tries to convince you to buy a set of Riptide Ditchfinders from the petrol station for a third of what the same size Yokohama tyre would cost.

It definitely narrows down the large field of tyre brand names you should be considering because there aren’t that many tyre brands that you might recognise when someone introduces them to you. When we need to replace your tyres, we typically look to the following manufacturers:

Additionally, there are a few niche companies who focus on producing the best tyres in that particular niche:

Choosing a Quality Tire Brand

When you could get tyres from some random hoops at the Dollar Store, why bother spending extra money on the greatest tyre brands? Aren’t all tyres the same? dark, stinky, and round.

Wait a minute. Long before any design considerations are made regarding how the tread performs, how the belts overlap, or how robust the sidewall is, an unbelievable amount of research is put into merely the rubber compound of individual tyres.

Depending on how you use them, an inexpensive set of tyres might be destroyed in a single day. Literally. For instance, if your goal is to take your car off-road and you choose a subpar tyre manufacturer, a sharp pebble might easily rip a hole in the sidewall, ruining your day. When brand-name tyre makers spend money on R&D rather than just covering the round-black-smelly opening ante, they are specifically expecting to protect you from those risks. Take the All-Terrain T/A K02 tyre from BF Goodrich as an illustration. You could believe you might choose a less well-known brand because it is one of the most well-liked all-terrain tyres on the market and BF Goodrich has invested a lot of money in promoting it since it was debuted in 2014. Why should a tyre cost more simply because the manufacturer invested more in marketing?

However, BF Goodrich spent the money to demonstrate that the K02 is the greatest tyre in its category. The business provided these off-the-shelf tyres for the Baja Challenge class of the Baja 1000 desert race when the tyre was first debuted. The goal was to demonstrate the tire’s longevity during one of the most grueling off-road races in the world. Every car that competed in that class had the same tyres that you could have had delivered to your home today.

Simply put, you won’t get that kind of testing from a tyre company who also sells clothing.

Tires for Different Purposes

The majority of tyre manufacturers offer a variety of tyre styles, each catered to a certain market. Most tyre manufacturers would be pleased to give those people a nice, secure replacement tyre for their Honda Fit if they were only seeking for one. Some tyre shoppers have more particular needs, such as a V-rated performance tyre for their late-model muscle car. a quiet highway tyre for extended highway drives in a light truck. A tough off-road tyre for their sport utility vehicle.

The majority of tyre manufacturers will have a tyre that fits that consumer’s criteria, but if you’re committed to a particular tyre brand, it might not have all the features you’re seeking for in its tyre lineup.

We’ll list our top tyre brand recommendations for each of the following categories of vehicles: SUV, Performance Car, Pickup Truck, Passenger Car/Minivan. Additionally, we are developing recommendations for popular car models. The section below contains links to those articles that go into great detail.

What Tires Should I Choose for My Passenger Car or Minivan?

The hardest decision you’ll likely have to make is choosing a tyre brand that works for a regular passenger car or minivan because nearly every tyre manufacturer makes a tyre that fits those vehicles. Passenger car tyres are typically built to accomplish the following objectives:

  • Tread life – Many tyres in this class will have tread life ratings in the 500 to 600 range, which means that in testing, they outlasted the 100-rated control tyre by a factor of five. All of the tyres we selected surpass the 500 rating.
  • Traction -These tyres will perform well in wet and snowy circumstances because the majority of them will be in the A range, which is good but not the highest of AA.
  • Temperature -The majority of these tyres have a B heat resistance grade, which is a moderate level. High-temperature ratings weren’t part of the initial design brief because these tyres aren’t high-speed rated.

Consumers gave each of these tyres more than 3.5 stars out of 5 stars:

  • Budget: Yokohama Avid Ascend GT -These tyres will last a very long period in your car with a 740 tread life rating. They cost about the same as the factory-installed tyres that came with your car when it was new. They have both an A temperature rating and an A traction rating.
  • Moderately Priced: Michelin Premier A/S -These Michelin tyres are pretty affordable for a 640 tread life rated tyre, and they should last you for the next three to four years without any problems. It scores an A for traction and an A for temperature.
  • Price No Object: Michelin CrossClimate2 -No of the season, these prestigious all-season grand touring tyres provide superb handling and performance. The CrossClimate2’s revolutionary tread compound, which keeps its flexibility in cold temperatures, allows it to manage dry, wet, and winter weather.

What Tires Should I Choose for My Performance Car?

Tread longevity isn’t exactly a performance tyre strength, as you’ll quickly discover. The majority of these tyres have a 450 rating, while some of them only have a 200 rating. As a result, some of them will lose their tread in half the time of a typical passenger car or touring tyre.

But their ability to hold the road is a benefit. These tyres feature a more stickier rubber composition and, in some cases, a tread pattern that is much more track-oriented, frequently with diagonal tread only on the outer area of the contact patch and grooves that resemble those on an F1 rain tyre on the inside portion.

Additionally, because of the unidirectional nature of these tyres, when it comes time to rotate them, only the front from the back, not in a cross pattern, can be moved.

Modern cars often have performance tyres in the 19- to 20-inch range, but you can get a high-performance tyre for your passenger car in the 17-inch size as well.

Consumers have given each of these tyres ratings of at least 3.5 stars out of 5:

  • Budget: Kumho Ecsta PS91 -A good performance tyre does not always have to cost a fortune. For half as much as the names you often associate with performance tyres, Kumho produces a great tyre. The Ecsta has outstanding wet performance and is generally well-liked by customers who have owned one.
  • Moderately Priced: Continental Extremecontact Sport – Consumers who have used Continental Extremecontact Sports have given them great ratings. In addition to providing excellent wet traction, they also have a far longer tread life rating than the competitors.
  • Cost-No-Object: Michelin Pilot Sport 4S -The Pilot Sport 4S is the best performing tyre in its class and comes as standard equipment on some of the fastest cars in the world.

What Tires Should I Choose for My Pickup Truck?

Pickups serve a variety of needs. Some pickup owners are curious about their vehicles’ load-hauling and towing capacities. Some people are more focused on having fun with their trucks. We’re going to offer advice on tyres for three of the most typical ways individuals use their trucks rather than dividing them down into pricing ranges.

We’ll discuss tyres for work, commuting, and recreation.

  • For Work: Hankook DynaPro HT -The highly acclaimed DynaPro HT tyre has an E load range, which denotes that it contains 10 radial cord plies and can withstand weights up to 80 psi. Additionally, they are less priced than other of the similar brands.
  • For Commuting: Sumitomo Encounter HT -A truck tyre designed for the highway, the Encounter HT should last for many years. This tyre outperforms the opposition in every category.
  • For Play: BF Goodrich Mud Terrain KM3 -There aren’t many tyres that are better for tearing around off-road than the KM3. These tyres will get you there and back thanks to their blocky tread pattern, exceptional sidewall strength, and remarkably minimal road noise.

What Tire Should I Choose for My SUV?

Until recently, SUVs were merely pickup trucks with an enclosed bed and a few seats thrown in. The most competitive segment of the automotive market today is SUVs. You can choose between everyday vehicles like the Nissan Rogue, sporty SUVs like the Porsche Cayman, and off-road kingpins like the Jeep Wrangler.

In keeping with our pickup category, we’ll segment our advice based on how these cars are utilised rather than the cost of the tyres:

  • Compact Crossover Commuter: Falken Ziex ZE001 A/S -Falken may not be as well known as some of the other companies, but they provide top-notch tyres. An all-season tyre designed exclusively for the requirements of a tiny crossover driver is the Ziex ZE001. These were standard equipment on several Rogue models and make a great upgrade for different variants.
  • High-Performance SUV: Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric -These tyres are the pinnacle of sport SUV tyres and make an excellent swap for models like the Range Rover Sport. The Eagle F1 Asymmetric, which is available in the enormous 22-inch size that these ultra-performance SUVs demand, is more concerned with snappy handling in wet and dry situations than it is with off-road capability.
  • Off-Road: BFGoodrich ALL-TERRAIN T/A KO2 – For many off-road aficionados driving Jeeps and Broncos, this tyre is the standard option. The ALL-TERRAIN T/A KO2 has a durable sidewall and an all-terrain tread pattern. Considering airing down? This tyre was created exclusively for use with an air compressor on your upcoming adventure. The 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake on this tyre further indicates that it is rated for Severe Snow Service.

FAQ

Which tire brands are the best?

The quick response is: a well-known brand. You should be aware of the advantages and disadvantages of the major tyre brands (Goodyear, BF Goodrich, Pirelli, Michelin, etc.). But there is a significant distinction between those tyre names and some unknown, fly-by-night brand that is sold alongside home audio speakers out of a van. See Car Talk’s top selections for the Best Tire Brands for 2022 for more information on this.

What are the top 10 tyre brands?

Michelin, Goodyear, Pirelli, Continental, Yokohama, Hankook, General, Bridgestone, Cooper, BFGoodrich, and Pirelli. Best Tire Brands for 2022 has more information about these leading manufacturers.

Which brand of tires last the longest?

Usually, it’s up to you. Your driving style has a big impact on how quickly your tyres wear out. Alignments on a regular basis are also important. And you probably shouldn’t put “longevity” among your top 5 factors to consider when purchasing a tyre. Performance in both dry and wet weather should. If a tyre lasts 75,000 miles but only has the grip of an 8-ball, it is no good to you.

Where is the best place to buy tyres?

We’ve got a wonderful post on buying tyres that we’ve made available. The answer largely depends on your particular situation. Online shops can occasionally be your best bet if you can locate a nearby store that is a connected installer. Don’t disregard physical stores, though. They frequently offer a more comprehensive service, from mount and balance to tyre disposal, while undercutting the price of an online vendor.

How often should I rotate my tyres?

When rotating tyres, the tyre comes first, followed by the vehicle. A standard rotation interval is from 5,000 to 7,000 miles, though certain vehicles and tyre types may alter those figures slightly. Tires at various ends of the vehicle may wear more quickly than the rears, depending on how you drive and the type of driveline your car has. This must be kept in mind, and you must not overlook the necessity of rotating your tyres.

How do I change a tyre?

You can get instructions on how to do it yourself with a fast google search. In general, your car either contains a spare tyre and tools for replacing it or a tyre inflation kit with a compressor and an aerosol tyre sealant. Check out our article on picking a mobile tyre repair business if you don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself or if you need a new tyre installed to find someone to do it swiftly and affordably.

How can I tell what size tyre my car currently has?

The information on the sidewall of your tyre contains all of that information. On its website, the Tyre Industry Association offers a great resource for determining the tyre size, UTQG rating, and date code of your current tyres.

Are the only factors for replacing a tyre age and mileage?

Without a doubt. There are many other causes to change your tyres, most commonly because of dangers on the road. Any cuts, abrasions, or punctures, particularly those in the sidewall, should prompt at least one tyre to be changed. You should make a call to have your tyres replaced if they have any bulges or other obvious flaws.

Do I have to replace all four at once?

Though it’s never a bad idea, it’s not always required. There is no need to replace all four tyres if only one of them has a puncture and the other three are still in good condition. To ensure that the tread on all four tyres wears more equally, tyre rotation will become even more crucial.

Can I mix and match tire brands?

That’s not a wise choice. Finding tyres of the same manufacturer is a smart option if you need to replace two tyres. Replace two at a time on the same axle if you must mix and match brands.
