Huge improvement over the stock bridgestones, the tire is visually larger than stock. The initial acceleration bite in snowy conditions really amaze me considering it isn't a snow tire. Alot smoother ride. I have over 40k on these and looking like I can get another 40k from them. The only thing I didn't care for is that they seem slightly delayed to abrupt steering imput compared to the OE bridgestones.

I tow 3tons daily. So lets get to it. From standing start on a hill w/trailer, no slip where other tires have. Secure in rain at 60mph in a turn w/trailer. With 700lb tongue weight never had problem in snow. And when I need to brake; SAFE! Mileage has been bested with about 17K (one manufacturer only lasted 6k) and higher mpgs on Generals. I've tried many tires over 150000 trailering miles, Generals gives the best bag for my working dollar.

Best Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season Tires in Size 275/55R20

Wednesday, July 23, 2014 by Gary Stanley

On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tires are common for those looking for aggressive tread patterns and some off-road traction. However, many drivers aren't looking for off-road traction and instead drive mostly on the street. These drivers would rather have a tire with a smoother and quieter ride with longer wear. This is what makes tires in the Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season category so appealing to them. The best two options in this category for tire size 275/55R20 are the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology and Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza.

If winter traction isn't a priority for you based on the area you live in, I'd suggest the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza for its smooth, quiet ride and outstanding wet traction. Are you going to experience winter conditions while on the road? Are you concerned about snow traction? You don't have to sacrifice much in the way of snow traction when you purchase the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology. It provides very good snow traction for an all-season tire, even better than some all-terrain tires.

The CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology is currently ranked first in our tire survey results. It has the highest ratings in the following areas compared to other options in the Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season category:

  • Hydroplaning resistance
  • Wet traction
  • Light snow traction
  • Ride comfort

This is proving to be a great tire. Drove in a blinding rainstorm at 70 mph with no hydroplaning. Road noise is almost non-existent and ride is excellent. For the price you can't beat this tire. It is as good, if not better, than any tire I have owned and this includes Michelin, Yokohama, Pirelli and Continental. I don't plan to drive this car in snow but did want a tire that would perform well in cold temperatures.
