How we rate motorcycle tyres

Our review compares motorcycle tyres on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which motorcycle tyre brand they think is best!

Canstar Blue surveyed 450 Australians for their feedback on the motorcycle tyres they’ve purchased in the last three years.

  • The outcomes reported in these ratings are measured via accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics.

Respondents rate their satisfaction with their motorcycle tyre brand(s) from zero to 10, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and 10 is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
  • Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with the motorcycle tyre brand as an individual score, NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Value for money: good quality of product for cost.
  • Durability: has not worn easily/quickly.
  • Wet weather handling
  • Dry weather handling
  • Stopping ability

The winning brand is the one that receives the highest overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.

  • Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
  • When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
    • The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

  • Pirelli
  • Avon
  • Dunlop
  • Michelin
  • Bridgestone
