Testing New Grand Touring All-Season Tires and Comparing Fuel Economy

Tire Rack tested tires from the Grand Touring All-Season category, collecting fuel economy data during our Real World Road Ride -- a test drive on a circuit of highway and county roads near our corporate headquarters in Indiana. The fuel economy results for the Standard Touring All-Season tires we tested are shown below.

The tire with the best fuel economy is the Goodyear Assurance ComfortTred Touring at 28.6 mpg in our BMW 3 Series test vehicles.

Grand Touring All-Season Tires MPG
Bridgestone Turanza Serenity
27.2
Continental ContiProContact
28.3
Goodyear Assurance ComfortTred Touring
28.6
Michelin Primacy MXM4 28.3

This information is based on our team of test drivers completing approximately 500 miles per tire over several days on the same 6.6-mile test loop. I would recommend using this fuel data as a good tire buying tie-breaker since the mileage differences are small and would only result in a difference of a few extra fill-ups every year.

Here are our complete test results.
