When comparing car tires, it is difficult to compare all types of tires because there is no standard. For tires of same brand and model, there are different patterns under it, some are comfortable, others are sporty, etc. We cannot measure quality of a tire in every detail. The next six major international tire brands are then ranked in same order.
First, Michelin, this brand should become a household name in China. Michelin is famous for comfort of its tires. It can be said that it has no competitors at all, but you may not have noticed that most of customers who buy Michelin tires spend a lot of money, but they buy most popular Michelin pattern, that is, XM2 pattern, which is cheapest in same model of.
Therefore, most stores sell and sell this model, but most comfortable 3rd and 4th are more expensive. The biggest downside of XM2 pattern is that tire has aged very badly, with many surface cracks over a period of about two years. Michelin tires are more comfortable and focus on quietness.
The advantage is that tread is "soft". For some small bumps and small stones on road, it has a good driving experience. In addition, grip is also very good, stable and comfortable. But its shortcomings are also obvious. The tires are relatively thin, not wear-resistant and do not withstand impacts.
Suggestion: if budget is sufficient and funds are good, Michelin is best choice. Despite low wear resistance, overall use of tire is pleasant. Most importantly, be careful not to select XM2 mode. The overall design is not great. It's just a walking product and it can't feel true essence of Michelin.
Secondly, Pirelli, this brand is undoubtedly best choice for performance lovers, but for most family car buyers, this is a nightmare. The tires are too hard, too hard and too noisy to imagine. Buying a family car is highly discouraged.
The price is also highest in its class. When tire is very hard, wear resistance is poor. After using for 3 years or more than 50,000 kilometers, tire is seriously deformed and tread becomes uneven. Pirelli tires are mainly used for sports. They hold up very well and are remarkably stable in harsh environments.
They are necessary for racing athletes. They are specially used in sports cars such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, etc. They are different from ordinary family cars. The most obvious disadvantage of Pirelli tires is that they are loud and often unbearable. Recommendation: Although Pirelli is a major international brand, there is no reason for a family car to choose Pirelli.
Thirdly, Continental tyres, also known as Continental tyres, are known for their quietness and comfort. There are many cars equipped with 100,000 yuan. With this tire, driving will be a luxury. However, Continental tires have poor wear resistance and average grip, are not suitable for Chinese road conditions, and price of imported tires is high.
German brands are mainly equipped with imported Volkswagen models, main tire line is as comfortable as Michelin, and the most comfortable cc6 is comparable in price to Michelin. Suggestion: Continental price is close to Michelin price. Give me a reason not to choose Michelin.
Fourthly, Goodyear. Many American luxury cars are mainly equipped with this brand. Tires are generally more durable, but price is not most expensive, but also relatively high at same level. Goodyear's most famous event was Regal Agilent a few years ago.
The biggest problem is that tires have very bad edges which are said to have been improved with new tread. Goodyear pays special attention to wear resistance and durability. In a previous tire wear test, Goodyear tires showed excellent wear resistance, especially their all-weather tires, which are right side of all-terrain vehicles.
You may not feel superiority of this tire on city roads, but as soon as you get into mountainous terrain or on other roads, you will feel that skin of this tire is too thick. Suggestion: Goodyear tires don't have much of an advantage, mostly durability. The price of same type of tire is not too cheap. For friends who use original mode, they can choose. Large Goodyear tires are relatively modestly priced.
Fifthly, Bridgestone is expensive. I don't know much about Bridgestone. I don't know if my channel is good or not. The total purchase price seems much more expensive. Bridgestone equips a number of special models for high-end Japanese cars. For example, explosion-proof version of Senna 2355518 is unique to Bridgestone, and price is over 2,000 yuan. All imported.
Suggestion: I don't know what advantages Bridgestone car tires have other than being expensive, but big tires are world famous, good enough, and have a big market share.
Sixth, Dunlop is cheapest model among six major brands. Due to a problem with sales strategy, sales remained flat. However, I do appreciate ve303 pattern in Dunlop tires. The comfort level of this model has reached level of Michelin, and wear resistance has also been significantly improved.
Among them, Dunlop off-road tires are best, and many support dominance and ground patrol. Recommendation: For those who want a big brand but are on a budget, we highly recommend Dunlop tires, which are relatively balanced in terms of comfort and durability and are generally cheap.
If you're familiar with car tires, you're probably familiar with these brands. Bridgestone tires have a relatively balanced performance in all aspects. They are not particularly outstanding in terms of wear resistance, tire noise, comfort and economy. They belong to upper middle class. An ordinary family car, usually driving around city, is more suitable for Bridgestone. There are no disadvantages.
