Best Tire Values Based on Consumer Reports' Tests
From all-season to all-terrain, these tires deliver the most performance for the money
Replacement tires are expensive. By the time you add up the cost for four tires, plus mounting and balancing, it is common to spend $800 or more. For that money, shoppers want all-weather grip, a long treadwear warranty, good handling, and short braking, based on a recent Consumer Reports survey. Getting these key attributes for a good price spells value.
But there are so many considerations when choosing replacement tires that it can be difficult to find the best ones for your car, while considering how long they are expected to last and ultimately cost. It is easy to be swayed by the asking price, or available discounts, and consequently lose sight of the full picture.
