Best Tires for a Honda Odyssey

Friday, August 23, 2013 by Colin .

Many Honda Odyssey owners want a tire that has long treadlife, good traction and a quiet ride. When looking for tires that work best for your Odyssey, it's important to remember that different trim levels and model years use different tire sizes, therefore you'll want to verify what size your vehicle uses first. Consider the following options when it comes time for new tires on your Honda Odyssey. 

Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology - This Standard Touring All-Season tire is offered with an 80,000-mile treadlife warranty. It's designed to enhance driving pleasure, save fuel and provide very good all-season traction. Continental's PROactive Edge Technology brings more active edges into the contact patch to promote foul-weather traction while allowing the pattern elements to transfer smoothly from edge to edge to minimize road noise.

Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus - Designed to provide Bridgestone's ultimate in luxury, elegance and comfort, the Turanza Serenity Plus blends long wear with dry, wet and wintertime traction, even in light snow. The tire is one of the highest rated options in the Grand Touring All-Season category.

Michelin Primacy MXV4 - Like the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus, the Primacy MXV4 also rates very well in the Grand Touring All-Season category. It's offered with a 60,000-mile treadlife warranty and excels in ride quietness and smoothness. To see how this tire performed during our testing, watch "Testing Grand Touring All-Season Tires with a Sporty Edge."

Firestone Precision Touring - Available with a 70,000-mile treadlife warranty, this tire provides year-round capability and comfort. In our testing the tire was a little noisier compared to its competition, but is ranked very highly in its category. It receives high marks in the following areas:  

  • Treadwear
  • Hydroplaning resistance
  • Wet traction
  • Cornering stability
  • Dry traction
  • Steering response

General AltiMAX RT and HP - These value-priced options are strongly worth considering. The RT model comes with a 70,000-mile treadlife warranty, while the HP H-speed rated version has a 55,000-mile warranty and the V-speed rated version offers a 40,000-mile treadlife warranty. Both models combine reliability, comfort and treadlife and are a good choice for your Honda Odyssey.

I agree with your choosing the General AltiMax HP tire. I discovered them when I needed new snows which wouldn't break the bank. There re other choices and most are very expensive. The Michelin MXV4's wre pricey and feel no different than the General's.
Believe me, these have been the BEST tires I've ever owned for this vehicle! For snows that go great in the snow belt of New Hampshire winters, the AltiMax Arctic are also a great choice. I don't purchase the studs since these tires go so well without them. If I needed studs, the region would be snowed-in so ad that no business would be open.

**** Highly Recommended ****
