Top Truck and SUV Tires

CR testing sorts the best picks among all-season, all-terrain, and winter/snow tires

Consumer Reports experts evaluated 52 tire models for trucks and SUVs from Bridgestone, Continental, Falken, Firestone, Goodyear, Michelin, Nokian, Pirelli, Yokohama, and other manufacturers in our latest round of testing. While many fared well, two brands stood out. 

Most of these tested models come in a wide range of sizes to fit small to large SUVs and light-duty pickup trucks. In addition, we have ratings of nine models of all-season tires designed specifically for crossovers/SUVs.

The CR Testing Difference

Our tire ratings are the culmination of up to 14 tests. Most are conducted by an expert team at our 327-acre Auto Test Center in Connecticut.  

Track testing reveals how well tires perform on dry and wet pavement, including stopping, handling, and resistance to hydroplaning. Plus, our engineers evaluate ride comfort on bumpy roads at our facility.

We evaluate tread life by driving thousands of miles on a road course in western Texas and use that information, along with the price we paid for the tire, to estimate the cost per 100 miles.

We even check braking on ice at a rink near our test track.

The cheapest tire isn’t always the best value. A significant factor in getting a good idea of the true cost over a tire’s lifespan is how long it will last before wearing out.

Combined, the data collected and analyzed from this extensive—and exhaustive—test program provides the most comprehensive, unbiased information available to consumers.
