175/65R14 car tyre reviews

We review 18 brands of 175/65R14 tyres, including models from Michelin, Continental, Goodyear and Firestone, to find the best tyres for your small car.

Last updated: 28th November 2014

We test drive 18 size 175/65R14 tyres (see How to read a tyre for what the numbers mean) ranging in price from $66 to $149 per tyre. This size is suitable for at least some versions of popular current and older-model small cars such as the Ford Fiesta, Honda Jazz, Hyundai Getz, Mazda2 and Toyota Yaris.

Our review will help you find the best tyres based on:

  • wet and dry braking performance
  • wet and dry cornering performance
  • rolling resistance

We'd like to thank Morgan Park Raceway in Warwick, Qld, for ensuring a smooth test.
