Best Tires for Dry-Weather Performance
Consumer Reports' testing shows stopping distances can vary significantly
Braking distance is a performance trait that's easy to overlook, because it isn’t something a driver can readily measure. But the ability to brake in a brief, controlled manner can mean the difference between a quick, predictable stop and a scary collision.
The ability to hold the road during hard braking is one of the numerous tests Consumer Reports conducts with each of the hundreds of tires we buy each year. And we look at more than just stopping distances to understand the full context of how a tire performs in an emergency situation.
