Capitol Tire Reviews

Capitol Tires is a small brand, but their tires are manufactured by Nexen Tire and marketed by Itochu Tire America (ITA), with their other brands being Granada and Jupiter. They make low cost tires that can compete with brands like Milestar, Westlake, and Fuzion.

Capitol's most popular (and best rated) tire is the Precision Trac II SUV/Truck All-Season tire. It has an above average 4.6 rating. Read below to get more details.

We do recommend reading our best rated tires list before you buy. Some of the more established brands in the U.S. (such as Kumho and Falken) are better rated and are cost competitive with Capitol tires.

Performance All-Season

Capitol Sport
4.3 out of 5 based on 328 user ratings as of 9/27/16.

This is a sporty tire that directly competes with the Milestar MS932, which has a better average rating of 4.6, but at a price of $36-65 per tire. Sizes are offered only between 13 and 16 inches. We would also look at the well reviewed 4.9 Fuzion's UHP A/S tire.

High Performance and Ultra High Performance All-Season

Capitol Sport UHP
4.2 out of 5 based on 168 user ratings as of 9/27/16.

The Sport UHP is a budget performance tire in only a handful of sizes, ranging from about $50-75 per tire. While most drivers like them, we do not consider them a true UHP tire, with a UTQG wear rating of 520. We'd consider this one a Performance Touring tire. If you want a true performance tire at a budget price, we highly recommend the following alternatives:

4.9 Kumho Ecsta 4X II

4.6 Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval A/S

4.1 Sumitomo HTR A/S P02

Capitol Sport UHP Plus HP
4.6 out of 5 based on 27 user ratings as of 9/27/16.

The Sport UHP Plus HP is made for larger wheel sizes, from 20 to 22 inches, making it an affordable option for those with custom rims.

SUV / Light Truck All-Season

Capitol Precision Trac II
4.6 out of 5 based on 167 user ratings as of 9/27/16.

The Precision Trac II tire is very affordable, with most sizes coming in under $100 a tire. Our only complaint about the Precision Trac II is that it is only available in several sizes between 15 and 17 inches, all with a T-speed rating. We would compare this to the Fuzion SUV tire which has the same average rating and is available in over 25 tire sizes.

SUV / Truck All-Terrain

Capitol All Terrain
3 out of 5 based on 2 user ratings as of 9/27/16. These have an 'E' 10 ply-rating and look heavy duty. There aren't enough reviews on the Capitol All Terrain for us to make a judgment, so we would recommend looking at the 4.8 rated General Grabber AT2, which has a 60k mile warranty and well over 450 reviews.
