Best SUV Tires

Wednesday, July 24, 2013 by Steve Huffman

Despite rising fuel costs, Americans still love their SUVs. While many SUVs may never make it off-road, they still haul families anywhere, including the grocery store, family vacations and soccer games. When it comes to keeping your precious cargo safe, nothing could be more important than the the only thing keeping your SUV in contact with the road. Consider the following options when looking to for new tires.

When making a short list of the "best" tires in a performance category, you will almost always find an option from Michelin. This particular case is no different. Michelin's LTX M/S2 is one the best tires on the market and is a prime example of why Michelin has such a great reputation. It simply does it all with superior wet and dry traction, fantastic handling and great winter traction in light snow. In addition, the tire offers a very nice ride to go along with a 70,000-mile treadlife warranty.

Another great option to take a look at is the Firestone Destination LE 2. This tire is quite comparable to the Michelin, but is available at a lower price. Similar to the LTX M/S2, it offers excellent year-round traction and has great ride characteristics. Early customer surveys show the Destination LE 2 performs a little better in winter elements.

Finally, Continental's CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology is worth considering if you're an SUV owner. The tire has similar characteristics to the Firestone and Michelin options, but is offered in larger, hard-to-find sizes. It also has low rolling resistance technology to help with fuel consumption.
