Michelin is one of the best tire brands, according to Popular Mechanics. It won the best tire in three categories including the all-season, high-performance and plus-two tests. The Michelin MXM4 is the top-rated all-season tire, working on both dry and wet surfaces. It also provided reviewers with a quiet, smooth ride. The Michelin Pilot Sport received the top reviews in the high-performance category. This tire was tested for both grip and precision. This tire also won the plus-two category for extra grip.
Another top brand is Continental, says Hartford Courant. It came in second for all-season tires in the T- and H-speed categories, and it came in first for the V-speed category. The winning tires were Continental ProContact models.
The other two top brands are Bridgestone and Republic, according to Popular Mechanics. The Bridgestone Ecopia EP100 came in first in the fuel-saving category. It has lower rolling resistance and reduced grip for better fuel efficiency. The Republic Enterprise is the least expensive tire, although Kumho has better reviews while being slightly more expensive.
