for me, i think we've tried only bridgestone, yokohama, goodyear and now federal tires.
We're only recently just tried the federal tires so I can't comment yet but they are definitely cheaper than goodyear plus the savings on balancing and alignment.
my experience is only on regular use so these are not pertaining to performance/sport tires or offroad tires.
Most of our tires last a good 30k-40k kms and run a good 4 years, give or take a few months. After that, they would need replacement. Most of them have "bald spots" already which require their replacement.
But noticing the tires now, I find that after a good 4 year run, they seem to significantly lose their elasticity anyway. My example was with our stock Innova tires (yokohoma I think).
I haven't replaced them during that time, and it was about 3+ years already of owning the vehicle. There was no bulging nor were the tires overinflated. I was just parking the car near the curb and I accidentally swiped the left tire sidewall against the curb. My tire blew up.
Honda City (yokohama stock tires), I just had them replaced because I felt they were worn out on one side because of poor alignment. One side looked good still but I changed both nonetheless. After removing both tires, I inspected both tires to check which one could be a reserve tire in the trunk. I was surprised to find that both tires actually had cracks on them already.
For goodyears, well, as with all other users here, nothing really special about them and sometimes, I'm not really happy with them. So I used federal tires for now for two vehicles.
Hope that would be a good investment already.
My math for the honda city stock tires as (175/65r14)
Goodyear - 2920 or 3320 per tire, plus alignment cost of 400-1400php (depending on severity)
Federal - 2400 only, free alignment.
Balancing did not exceed 100php for the wheel weights when they did it. Balancing itself was free excluding the weights which is added cost.
For the Revo it was (185 R14 - cargo)
Goodyear - 3800 per tire plus alignment cost of 400-1400php (Depending on severity)
Continental and Yokohama - 3900-4250php plus alignment (forgot the exact figures from tireboy)
Federal - 3500 per tire, free alignment
Had these federal tires bought and installed in payless car care center which is the distributor of the federal tires to the best of my knowledge so maybe the price was slightly lower there compared to outside payless car care center.
Hope that helps you guys as well in canvassing.
