Looking for Best Replacement Tires for a Chevy Cruze?

The Chevy Cruze replaced the Cobalt in 2011 as GM's compact segment entry. With almost a quarter million sold each year, requests for replacement tires are common. Requests regarding new tires usually involve long life, with good wet and winter traction.

Chevrolet offers a number of trim packages that involve various size tires. Always be sure to check the size your Cobalt uses before ordering. However, the most common size we see on them is 215/60R16. Some of the best options in this size include the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All Season, Continental TrueContact, Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus and General AltiMAX RT43.
