Better Wear for Your 245/35-20 Tire

Thursday, September 22, 2011 by Cy Chowattukunnel

Although 20" tires look great, many drivers have been unpleasantly surprised with the low treadwear from this size of radial. To help with this issue, many tire manufacturers have recently started offering better-wearing 20" tires. Below are a few options that offer better treadwear in the popular 245/35-20 size.
 

Kumho Ecsta 4X

4X
Hankook Ventus V4 ES H105

Dunlop SP Sport Signature

Goodyear Eagle GT
Goodyear Eagle
GT

All four tires mentioned have a good track record of treadwear, while offering a 420 treadwear rating and are priced at less then $140* per tire. Each tire has its own unique strengths. For example, the Ecsta 4x has great steering response, the Ventus V4 ES H105 has a directional tread design for emphasis on hydroplaning resistance and the Dunlop SP Sport Signature and Goodyear Eagle GT have good wet grip. Remember, even though these tires offer great treadwear, it's important to monitor your air pressure, rotate your tires and have a proper alignment.

Shop by vehicle to find the tire that works best for your vehicle.
