Tire Reviews

The 2015-16 winter season is here. Check out our guide, which includes a comparison video of all-season tires vs. dedicated snow tires. Here are our top tire picks for this winter (updated 12/4/2015).

Best overall review: Bridgestone Blizzak WS80 (4.5 out of 5 stars, out of 100+ reviews)

Rating tires may be one of the more difficult tasks to perform among all consumer products. Any opinion should be taken with a grain of salt, since a reviewer's real-world experience with a tire will vary by car, climate (rain and snow), driving style, existing tire condition, etc. A better way to evaluate a tire is to consider the ratings of many consumers over hundreds of thousands of miles driven.

One of the newer tire review sites is TireBuyer, which features over 10,000 tire reviews. You can view individual tire reviews when searching for a specific brand and model of a tire. There are even reviews for lesser known brands such as Kumho, Fuzion, Nexen, and Sumitomo.
