Tire Comparison Charts in Our Customer Survey Results

At Tire Rack, we have collected and compiled independent consumer surveys since 1996 to help drivers discover what other drivers just like themselves are experiencing with their tires.   

Here are some common questions and answers about Tire Rack's customer survey tire comparison charts.

Where do the results and data come from? 

The survey results you see on our site are independent from our own opinions and the results are an average of the submitted surveys from our customers — drivers just like you!

How do I use the surveys? 

It's simple. First, choose the category of tire in which you are interested. We will then show you the survey results broken down into an easy to use tire comparison chart for that category. We continually update the results, so check back often to see how some of the top tires fare over time. The higher the rating from 1-10 the better.  Also keep in mind that survey data is only comparable within a specific given category. 

For example, you're looking for the best all-season tires in snow in the High Performance All-Season category. Review that category's results for light snow and deep snow traction to find your answer. 

How accurate are the results?

We have seen that in many cases our test results match closely what our customer feedback results are.

The reported miles can help you in analyzing the results. If the reported miles are low there is more possibility that the results are skewed by one person's experience. We do not enter our own results or change them to meet our expectations. Use our consumer survey results and review in addition to our test results which give a more direct comparison between tires.

Why does Tire Rack take the time to do this? 

Our biggest incentive for giving accurate information is to get customers the correct tire for their needs. We benefit most in the long run from selling what will give a customer the best results.

I have a 2911 Nissan Altima and am looking for a more comfortable ride. Is the Grand Touring Tire the answer?

Yes, tires like the Michelin Primacy MXV4 and Bridgestone Turanza Serenity would be very smooth and quiet riding tires that would be an appropriate choice for your car.

The top summer performance tires in your sizes according to recent survey data is the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. For all-season tires in your sizes, the Continental Extreme Contact DWS ranks highest.
