Which Brand Is the Best Rated Tires?by Josh Michaels
Consumer Reports Likes Michelin
Consumer Reports rates current auto and truck tires on its subscription-based website, dividing them into nine different categories based on performance type and weather. The site gives Michelin the highest overall marks in five of the nine categories, often citing the brand's durability and performance as key factors.
Other Brands Score Well Too
In the four categories that Michelin doesn't top, Consumer Reports gives the highest marks to Falken, General, Pirelli and Bridgestone. The categories they top, respectively, are Ultra-High Performance All-Season, All Season Truck, All-Terrain Truck and Performance Winter.
It's difficult to definitively choose the best tire brand, but Michelin is the top bet in the majority of categories. If, however, you're in the market for Ultra-High Performance All-Season, All Season Truck, All-Terrain Truck or Performance Winter tires, there are better choices.
