Tire recommendations Sign In

Hello,

What's the best bang for your buck now-a-days for an everyday driver sedan. Want something that will last long, but don't want to pay a Michelin price.

Are Coopers any good? I favor Goodyear or BFGoodwrench.

My vehicle:
-Year 2017
-Brand Toyota
-Make Camry
-Model XLE
-Engine 2.5L (4cyl)
-Tire size 215/55/17
-Rim size 17x7

Cooper is a great American made tire.

Good question! Cooper has been a long term favorite of mine too. Also but read tire ratings too. Uniroyal of all old names some great, B.F. Goodrich another. Check Hankook or however that's spelled.
Search away where they are made or ask can matter. Names have been sold off not the brand you thought it really was. Check up to the decision time it's scaring me how fast one buys out another!
I maintain all time long term quality still is held by Michelin choose the behavior you want they too make all sorts.
IMO and long, long term will bad mouth Firestone! A fav of many I'll let you know when I see a good one - never have since the 1960s without exception!

Goodrich and Uniroyal have merged and are both the same company and owned by parent company Michelin. No comparison in quality though.

Firestone and Bridgestone are one in the same now also.

Hancook is Korean made but not a bad tire.

All of these companies produce various models with varying quality.

Gotta love how that "shell game" of who owns what goes on! The famous problems repeatedly with Firestone were found to be ONCE lack of caring for raw steel ready to use for tires was pre rusted and treads separated on some. Of course you wont find that on the web it was a recall by millions of tires many already on new cars not at dealers yet - I did some of the 800 sent locally - just shut up was the word but it's out now isn't it?
(edit to add) Unsold new at distribution center vehicles. Not known where destined. All of one type was recalled before delivery so all were changed out. Old/new ones picked up IDK where they went we couldn't take them they were counted??)
