Winter tire

We present the rating of winter and summer tires for cars. This ranking presents the best selling tire models for the last two years in our company (2019, 2020). In total, 248 summer and 244 winter models participated in the rating. However, keep in mind that the best-selling tires and the best tires are not the same thing.

Obviously, the best tires are usually tires from expensive manufacturers, in the production of which the latest innovations and the best technologies have been applied, allowing these tires to perform excellently in all tests.
The only but very significant drawback of such tires is their cost, which is not available to all car owners.

Nevertheless, such a rating of tires is useful information, since it is the choice of most motorists, many of whom analyzed the market, prices, consulted with professionals, studied tests, read reviews about these tires before buying. And someone has their own experience of using some models of tires.

Why do people buy these models of winter and summer tires the most?

The answer is simple: these tires have a good combination of price and quality. These most popular tires are mostly in the low to mid price range, such as the Cordiant, Hankook or Bridgestone models. Nevertheless, expensive models of such manufacturers as Michelin, Continental and, of course, Nokian also fall into the top 20 car tires.

Among the recognized leaders in winter studded and non-studded tires Nokian and Michelin, Japanese tire manufacturers such as Toyo and Yokohama are confidently entering the market.

Please note that over the past year, studless tires are no longer more popular among motorists than studded ones, although a few years ago the situation was exactly the opposite. And this is despite the fact that the relatively warm winters of recent years and anti-icing agents on the road are pushing motorists not to use more noisy (although safer on bare ice) studded tires.

Summer Top Tire Brands

Summer tires also tend to hit the top of the best mid-range tires.
Traditionally, the positions of European manufacturers are strong: Goodyear (and its subsidiary Dunlop), Michelin, Continental and the inexpensive Korean brand Hankook, which is often installed by automakers on the assembly line. However, another Korean brand, Nexen, is gaining momentum and is already better bought by car owners.
I would also like to note the Japanese Toyo brand and the Italian Pirelli, which over the past year have made a steady leap in sales, and several of their summer models at once.

  • Nexen N’Blue HD Plus
  • Pirelli Cinturato P1 Verde

This year I would like to say about such a famous brand as Nokian. Usually people trust well-known brands, and this company with its models was able to occupy almost a quarter of the top of all winter tires sold, and a significant part of summer ones. Which is quite unusual for the tire market, which is currently the most competitive.

Finally about top tire brands

In conclusion, I would like to say that manufacturers are releasing new good tire models that do not immediately fall into this rating, since they have not yet had time to sell them in large quantities. Also, excellent, but very expensive models of tires may not get here, which are superior in performance to most popular tires, but are not sold in large volumes due to the high price.
Therefore, this rating of tires will be useful primarily to people who select high-quality, but inexpensive tires.
