Our team prides itself on sharing accurate information on everything related to auto products. We verify each product’s quality through our hands-on research, and our team follows an in-depth testing process for products we review in person. We try to perform in-house testing on real vehicles whenever possible before making our recommendations. This ensures that only products we are passionate about appear in our guides, so you can buy with confidence.
We start by searching retailers like Tire Rack and Discount Tire for top products, looking at factors such as tread patterns, siping, customer ratings, and prices.
Our independent tire tester, Jonathan Benson of TyreReviews.com, orders tires from all of the best tire brands on the market. He is internationally renowned for performing some of the most involved and thorough testing in the industry.
Benson tests each tire on a variety of different vehicles on a range of terrain. Testing takes place all over the world, with tests ranging from ice handling on frozen lakes to dirt handling around a muddy track.
Our tire testing consists of a number of timed laps averaged out. Throughout testing, Benson utilizes control tires to benchmark the track’s surface evolution and ultimately calculate each tire’s rating in individual testing categories. Benson takes note of each tire’s wet handling, dry handling, dirt handling, gravel handling, snow handling, and ice handling depending on the type of tire he’s testing. Overall comfort and road noise are judged throughout.
Each tire is given a rating out of 10.0 based on some or all of these criteria.
