Consumer Reports likes Michelin -- a lot

Posted on July 10, 2014

Consumer Reports published its "Best of" tire listings a few months ago. They were abridged results from seven previous tests.

When you see the results of all the recent tests in the same spot, trends appear. You can see which brands get the most love.

If you are an avid follower of the tire tests in Consumer Reports, you probably can guess which brand is the best-of-the-best. There is no suspense here. It's Michelin.

But other brand trends also emerge on a close examination of the lists. To find out what they are, check out the latest blog from Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich, "The 'usual suspect' is the No. 1 tire, says Consumer Reports."

Who else was mentioned as the cream of the crop in the seven categories? Read the blog, then let us know what you think of the rankings by leaving a comment!
