Given today's record-setting gas prices, the Toyota Prius has become the standard in hybrid vehicles. They're dependable, sporty and most drivers hold on to them for many years. Choosing the right tire will help keep your Prius rolling for miles to come. What's the best tire for you? Well that all depends on what you're looking for. The following options are a few top recommendations that'll suit most drivers.

If you're looking for the best all-season tires, two that will last long and provide a smooth and comfortable ride are the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring and Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus. These options are two of the best in class and will provide fantastic all-season traction.

If you're looking for a low rolling resistance tire that will continue to promote great fuel economy, I would recommend the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422. On top of designing a tire that offers good fuel economy, Bridgestone has done an excellent job developing a tire that maintains good overall all-season traction. To see how Bridgestone created a tire that matched Prius' drivers' needs and driving style while addressing a broad range of today's environmental topics, read "Bridgestone Ecopia.'

Bridgestone Ecopia tires are the worst tires for Prius. Didn't last past 12,000 miles. Have to replace them because the tread is completely gone. FYI- only missed one tire rotation.

What happened to the hypermilers favorite ...Michelin Energy Saver A/S? Is it out of production now?

The Michelin Engery Saver A/S is still available. What size do you need?

I can't find the Michelin Energy Saver A/S anywhere not many on the entire eastern US

Assuming you're looking for size 195-65-15, they've been on backorder for months from Michelin. Hopefully we'll
have them in stock soon.

Bridgestone Ecopia tires were great. They came with 50K warranty from costco but lasted 60K.

Ecopia ARE the worst tires. Treads wore down after 15,000 miles

Original Bridgestone Ecopia tires that came with the 2010 Prius at purchase are great tires. I have no clue how Mary (see above 23 November 2012 tread) only got 12,000 miles but it was not because of the Bridgestone Ecopia tires. I have 40,000 miles on them and they are still goo to go...

I put a lot of miles on my Prius and have gotten 50,000 miles plus on each of 2 sets of Ecopia EP20's. They are quiet and have excellent wet, dry and snow traction.

have 76K on a 05 Prius, 2nd set of ecopias with plenty of tread left

I'm about to replace the original Ecopia tires that came with my 2010 Prius. They're pretty worn now, but they have 55K miles on them.
