I need four new all-season passenger tires for my 2012 Toyota Corolla. I just want tires that will last and good tracking.
I’ve been looking at customer reviews at Tirerack.com. There are bad complaints about almost all the tires, even the ones that have good overall ratings. It makes it seem none of the tires are very good. There are also complaints at Tirerack about the best reviewed tires from Consumer Reports.
I talked to a guy at Tirerack.com. He recommended some Continental and Michelin tires that Tirerack had tested. I was disappointed that neither tire had many customer reviews.
My mechanic suggested a couple of brands including Firestone. My current tires are Firestone. They only have 29,000 miles on them. They were supposed to last for 50,000. Does that mean Firestone tires are not very good? Are mechanics usually knowledgeable about tires?
I’m probably making this decision harder than it needs to be. Who provides the best evaluation of tires? Tirerack.com customers, Consumer Reports, a mechanic?
