    As you know there are too many companies which offers tires like michlen, bridgestone, Toyo... Etc

    But the point that how I can know whether the tire that I'll get is good?? Or which brand is better for my prius

    Most of the companies offers insurance from 6 months to lifetime insurance but can't know which one is better as by the end we all care about quality for all seasons tires

    Any technical / logical suggestions?

    Thanks

    I'd be asking the question locally. Manufacturers of tyres have factories all round the world - and there have been occasions where quality has differed vastly.

    A case in point - Dunlop, many decades ago. At the time, Japanese cars imported to Australia had very poor Dunlop tyres, but Australia made some very good performing ones on locally assembled Japanese cars.

    Here we have bridgestone, Michelin, Toyo, maxxis, I don't know what exactly different between them other than price for sure
    The one which in my prius are Toyo, but I'm thinking about changing them as within 39k Miles they had small shredders in them

    What do you define as “good”? Economy mileage? Tread? Braking? Performance in rain? Snow? There are a lot of trade offs when you go performance based economy. I have Michelin cross climates which handles all seasons from bad snow to summer rain, but are bit below average in fuel economy.

    If you are talking in general, Michelin’s have always been pretty good, have great performance, but not so great fuel economy. They are expensive though, probably the most expensive tires in US for the normal street car.

    What I will use is for all seasons tires, but I'm worried about the mileage actually and manufacturing, as I don't want any surprises I have Toyo tires, they are going great actually, but I'm thinking whether there is better tires, now you mentioned that Michelin will increase the mileage, glad to know that and yes here they are expensive too

    A friend recommended bridgestone, what do you think

    Bridgestone has some pretty good tires, but the choices are limited for the Prius. They have a great line of very efficient fuel economical tires, but they don’t have a good selection of all season stuff good for the snow. They do have a very good winter tire blizzaks if you are willing to swap seasonal. Living in Colorado, I need some all season tires good with snow which is why I got Michelin cross climates.

    Do you get cold weather - like snow and ice?
