When you think about the parts on your car, nothing seems more important than your tyres. The tyres play a part in nearly all aspects of your vehicle. They help it go forwards and backwards, they help it turn and they help it stop.

However, most importantly, they help your car do all of these things safely!

That’s why, choosing the best tyres for your vehicle, from the best brands, is so important.

To make it easy for everyday folk like us, we put together a list of the most common tyres being searched for and ordered by tyre fitters on AutoGuru.com.au.

This should give you a good indication of which brands the experts are fitting on customer cars. These results are current as of February 2021.

1. Bridgestone

Bridgestone has come out on top as the most searched for tyre brand by AutoGuru members in 2020.

Over 35 tyre brands were searched for by tyre fitters through AutoGuru in 2020, yet Bridgestone was searched for over 19% of the time.

Bridgestone offers a range of car, 4x4 and truck tyres and has over 300 stores throughout Australia.

To ensure that the safest tyres are being fitted to their customer’s cars, Bridgestone invests over $1 Billion AUD into research and development each year, and tests over 100,000 tyres each month across their international proving grounds.

Their extensive investment and local expertise make them a great tyre choice for Aussie car owners.

2. Pirelli

Pirelli received 9% of tyre searches through AutoGuru in 2020.

The brand originates from Italy and if you’re into motorsport, you’d recognise them as the tyre supplier for the Formula 1 series.

Whilst the tyres fitted to Formula 1 cars don’t really resemble the tyres you’d find on your everyday vehicles, Pirelli is committed to developing quality tyres that suit the various yet specific needs of consumers.

Pirelli prides themselves on their cutting edge technology, high-end production excellence and passion for innovation.

3. Continental

Continental came in third on the most searched for tyre brand list in 2020, receiving 8% of the total search.

They’re another European tyre brand, this time originating from Germany.

The 150-year old company is known for manufacturing quality tyres for all areas of the tyre market, but they also play a large role in manufacturing systems and parts for many other markets such as interior, powertrain and technology.

In terms of passenger vehicles, Continental offers tyres for cars, SUVs and vans.


Now, the next time you're up for a tyre replacement, you can have a idea of some of the most preferred tyre brands out there.
