When it's time to shop for tires, do a tire comparison.

Sounds obvious, but when it comes down to it, conducting a tire comparison isn't always the easiest thing to do. It involves a lot of research, as you want to compile detailed information about each of the tires you are interested in. But that's where Tire Rack comes into play—we do all of that research for you.

Whether you need to compare Bridgestone tires or compare performance tires within other brands, spending a little time with our Tire Survey Results will produce all of the information you need to successfully shop for tires. We study our consumer feedback to chart all of the tires in our inventory, which lets you look at things like hydroplaning resistance and noise comfort. And we even label the best sellers according to their performance in our sales logs. Beyond that, we publish every test we conduct which gives you our unique perspective on how certain tires hold up against others.

All of this information, along with a library full of Tire Reviews, puts all of the information you need to conduct a tire comparison right in front of you. 

And in the end, that's how we make it really easy for you to buy auto tires online.

I've been running BF Goodrich Radial T/A's 245-60/15 and was looking for something with more hydroplaning resistance, living here in FL with the heavy downpours, I've experienced some hyroplaning but I also have to consider how hot the surfaces are down here too...thanks for your input.

I need comparison or technical info for Mickey Thompson v Kumho. Tire size is LT325/60R18.

Mr. Hudgins, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we have never offered Mickey Thompson tires so we do not have technical information about their tires. We can help with questions you have about the Kumho tires.

Hello, I was wondering if you had a comparison between Yokohama Avid TRZ, Goodyear Integrity, and Michelin Harmony. I am mainly looking for longevity of the tire as well as grip to the road during icy road season. Thank you.

Josh, thanks for your inquiry. Based on my personal testing of the Yokohama Avid TRZ, Goodyear Integrity, and Michelin Harmony, I have found one tire to have the most consistent features in ride quality, handling in vaious road conditions, as well as overall value. We have had several years of experience evaluating all three tires which has revealed the Michelin Harmony and the Yokohama TRZ proove to be the best in ride quality and consistancy in tire wear. However, when considering the price of both tires ... there is a clear advantage favoring the Avid TRZ by Yokohama. If you have any other questions or need to place an order, please contact me directly. If you are placing your order online, please be sure to reference my name, so that I can watch over your order as it processes. Best regards, Mason

My son's 1997 Ford Crown Victoria needs new tires. He is 16 and drives the car to school and back with the occasional trip around town. I am looking at a Michelin or a Goodrich. Thanks, Susan

I would like tire price comparison of vanderbuilt tires to other manufactures. Thanks

Dear Ms. Klassen, Tire Rack has not offered the Vanderbilt tires and so we do not have any information about the brand. We do offer tires from 17 tire manufacturers and can help you find the tire that best meets your driving needs.

I live in a hilly area of NJ. Which of the following tires would be best for me especially for icy hills:Goodyear Hankook Optimo#727, or Goodyear Assurance Triple Tread, Continental Extreme Contact DWS, or Yokohama Avid Trz/ My car takes 14" tires.

I drive a 2008 Prius (size 185/65/15) and need snow tires. I want studded (NH, windy roads, dirt roads, big hills) snow tires. I've been recommended the General Altimax Arctic and the TDC Arctic Claw by 2 tire salesmen. Online a Prius site recommended Michelin Ice-X and Bridgestone Blizzacks. What's your recommendation? Thanks for your help!

I agree go with the Genera Altimax. That would be the best option for a stud able tire. We can put the studs in as well for $15 dollars per tire.

I live 21 miles from town on a partly windy/hilly road with the last few miles dirt. Outside of Steamboat, CO. Don't want to have to switch tires twice a year. Two places in town. One has Arctic Claw and the other has Starfire. I can't find much about either one. I drive a 06 Tundra.

Although we do not offer either of those two options, I am happy to provide you with a few options. Feel free to contact me via marshall@tirerack.com.

I have a 2011 Volvo xc60 with an unbearably harsh ride. It was delivered with Pirelli tires. My past experience was with Kumho and Michelin both of which seem to deliver a softer ride.. Can you assist in finding the right tire for this car and a comfortable ride. Thx.
