Are there any bad tires on the market?

Tires are technological marvels. Some are better than others, but as time goes by, the question "Which tire is the best?" gets harder to answer.

But "Consumer Reports" tried anyway. In its November issue, the "CR" staff rated 21 ultra-high performance summer tires, 17 UHP all-season tires, and 15 performance winter tires. There were clear winners, but no clear losers.

To find out more about the latest "CR" tire tests (in all, 16 different brands receive their due), you have three options:

1. Purchase the November issue of "CR";

2. Click on “Consumer Reports ranks Goodyear No. 1 ( maybe)," which takes an in-depth look at the magazine's UHP summer tire rankings; or

3. Read "There are a lot of good tires out there -- just ask 'Consumer Reports'" -- the latest blog by Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich.
