September 4th, 2016

There are plenty of great choices for tires these days, far more than there were a couple of decades ago. With such a selection of brands and models and various price points, what are  the best tires for your vehicle?Goodyear Tires in Gainesville FL

Here’s a brief breakdown of what experts consider the best tires on the market today:

Goodyear: America’s last domestically-owned tire company has long been a favorite of drivers everywhere and for good reason. Tires like the Goodyear Assurance TripleTread and Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season offer great traction, top-notch handling, a quiet ride and great road manners, at a great price point. Dependable and consistent, Goodyear is a strong contender in any ranking of best tire brands.

Michelin: With a reputation for quality and innovation, Michelin tops many roundups of top tire brands. With excellent tread wear, hard-to-beat warranties, and a huge worldwide dealer network, Michelins (while expensive) are held in pretty high regard.

Continental: With great performance and an impressive lineup of tires, Continental has consistently been moving up the pack in these types of rankings.

Pirelli: Long associated with European sports models, Pirelli also offers tires for sedans, minivans, and crossovers. While Pirelli tires aren’t known for great tread wear, they’re an excellent choice for drivers who like to push the envelope with their vehicles.

Hankook, Cooper, Nokian, Yokohama: This runoff for 5th place is a tough call. Hankook, made in Korea, has some great performance and UHP tires. Cooper is strong in the truck tire category, Nokian specializes in winter tires and Yokohama tires are OEM on many Japanese makes. They’re all a bit different, but all great in their individual niches.
