How do we test tires at Tire Rack?

Our tire tests consist of two parts.

First, we drive on a 6.6 mile Real World Road Ride to get a feel for a tire’s comfort, noise level and handling on all types of road surfaces. Next, we push the tires to their limits during our Performance Test Track Drives. This allows us to test a tire in the areas of emergency braking and steering responsiveness. Our purpose-built track also has a sprinkler system so we can test the tires in rain-like conditions.

Having the opportunity to test tires allows Tire Rack’s sales specialists to understand the best tire for a customer’s unique driving style and vehicle.
