If you are replacing tires for the second time, here a few questions to consider:

What is the difference between factory tire brands and a tire broker?
Factory tire brands have invested in manufacturing facilities and developing tire brands that they distribute. Brokers mainly buy and resell tires based on price and have no factory, so they are not invested in producing a quality product, they are simply buying the cheapest tires and reselling them.
Tire Research has compiled a list of affordable tire brands here for comparison. Our “top 10” in the gold box directly below are highlighted for ticking the most boxes in terms of features that US consumers are looking for.
