So who is the best out there?
Founded in 1891, Michelin first introduced the radial tire, and the company continues to be a pioneer in tire technologies. Michelin tires are at or near the top of our ratings in every category they are represented in, and all are recommended models. All-season, all-terrain, and summer tires offer a good blend of grip, handling, and long tread life within their classes. Winter/snow tires offer outstanding snow traction and grip to stop on ice. Michelin tires tend to be pricey, but they have high value when you factor in long tread life. All Michelin replacement tires have treadwear warranties, including winter/snow and summer tires, an advantage over most competitors.
The Firestone Tire Company was founded on a determination to offer the quality and service it takes to win the race, wherever that race may be.

And it’s why we’re still a household name generations after that historic horse race.

Most Continental tires score high in their respective categories. Stopping grip on dry and wet roads is impressive across the board, along with a good mix of handling and comfort.
