What Russian-made summer tires to choose?

Many foreign companies open their factories in our country. However, below is a rating of summer tire manufacturers of completely Russian companies.

  1. Cordiant products have earned the most confidence from car owners. The All Terrain model will not let you down in any weather, it is used in various temperature conditions. They are quite quiet and wear resistant. Cheap summer tire ratings regularly place these SUV tires at the top of the list.
  2. Contyre Megapolis III is in second place. The tread pattern here is unusual. It makes the car more stable on wet surfaces. With them, maneuvering at speed becomes more predictable. Developed shoulder area reduces rubber overheating. But braking is below optimal values, as is directional stability.
  3. Kama Euro 228. They are installed on most domestic cars, including Chevrolet Niva. Rubber is resistant to abrasion, clings well to the road and performs well on unpaved surfaces. It is also the best summer tire for sedans and other popular cars.
  4. Yaroslavl Tire Plant is the best manufacturer of summer tires for domestic SUVs (if we talk about inexpensive tires). Two models can be distinguished: I-192 and I-471. The first proved to be excellent on rocky roads and in viscous mud, and the second in sandy terrain. I-471 has a higher quality workmanship.
  5. The TOP of the best summer tires for passenger cars of the Russian assembly could not do without the Kama I-502 and I-520. This rubber showed excellent holding on the roadway and decent deceleration. They are often used even on small off-road.
