Top Tires for the summer of 2018

Unlike winter for many, we always look forward to summer. And while there’s still a little snow left on the ground, the time to shop for happy-weather tires is now.

The following is a quick breakdown of the better tire brands and models in a few key price points for you to consider. Compact and midsize cars and crossovers make up the bulk of new vehicle sales in Canada and the following list is designed to ensure that your replacement tires maintain or improve upon the performance and behaviour you’ve come to expect from your vehicle.

The price ranges are meant as a guide to gauge a budget. If your Ford Escape Titanium features the 19” wheels, you might only find tires in the lower price ranges if you’re willing to sacrifice durability, quality and handling.
