For over a decade, the Honda Odyssey has been one of America's top selling minivans. With its good looks, spacious interior and Honda's reliability, the Odyssey has logged millions of miles on U.S. roads. Along for the ride are some very good choices of tires, including the most common size of 235/65R16.
Having spoken with hundreds of Odyssey owners and having made several more recommendations, I've found three tires that have been solid choices.
Goodyear Assurance ComforTredTouring
LX20 with EcoPlus Technology
My favorite option is the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring. This tire is one on the best riding tires I have ever driven on. Period. It offers the qualities most drivers are looking for in a tire: very smooth, quiet, great all-season traction and will last a long time.
Next, the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology is an ecologically friendly tire that's designed to enhance driving pleasure, save fuel and maintain grip while on wet surfaces. Technically, the tire is marketed as a Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire, but works just as well on the Honda Odyssey. This tire is also very comfortable and offers excellent traction. The difference with this tire is its low rolling resistance technology that provides drivers with a little better fuel economy.
When in comes to a value option, I prefer the Hankook Optimo H727. This tire offers good all-season traction and reasonable ride manners. It's developed to deliver a premium appearance and long wear along with dry, wet and wintertime traction, even in light snow. Optimo H727 tires also come with a 100,000-mile treadlife warranty.
