DriverReviews launches the 2023 Customer Choice Awards to recognise the best tyres rated by real drivers

Watch Jonny Smith present the awards:

Today we launch the 2023 DriverReviews Customer Choice Awards. These awards are chosen from the opinions of real motorists, across a range of vehicle segments leaving genuine, verified feedback about their tyres.

With over 350,000 tyre reviews covering more than 300 million miles on the road, we have collated the views and experiences of drivers to present awards across nine categories.

The Customer Choice Awards span a wide spectrum of vehicle categories that mirror the most popular automotive segments in the UK. The awards also feature All Season tyres, acknowledging the increasing popularity of this tyre category.

In each category, there are three recognitions: a 'winner,' a 'highly recommended', and a 'commended' award. Through these awards, we strive to offer consumers an impartial and genuine selection in every segment, derived from real-world reviews.

We have awarded accolades to several tyre brands, including the Continental SportContact 7 as the winner in the Hot Hatches tyre category, recognising the Hankook Ventus Prime 4 as the top choice in the Large Family Car category, and for the second consecutive year, honouring the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S as the leader in the High-Performance car category. In the highly competitive All Season category, the Michelin CrossClimate 2 emerged as the distinguished winner, while the Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 SUV claimed the top spot in the Best All Season tyres for SUVs category.
