Out of the 2,400 tire lines tested for heat resistance, 27% were given an "A" rating; 59% were given a "B" rating; and, 11% were given a "C" rating. Some of the tire brands that received an "A" rating for heat resistance include BF Goodrich, Big-O, Bridgestone, Dunlop and many more. See a full list of brands.
