Best Tires for Ford Taurus

The Ford Taurus has been around for many years and has come a long way since its debut in the late 1980s. Today's version is very sleek, efficient and powerful, while being popular with many drivers. The new Taurus comes with several different factory tire sizes, including 17", 18", 19" and even 20", depending on what trim level you have.

If you use tire size 235/60R17 or 235/55R18, take a look at Goodyear's Assurance ComforTred Touring. This is a highly rated Grand Touring All-Season tire that has excellent ride qualities, including a very quiet and comfortable ride. It also has fantastic year-round traction to go along with long treadlife.

Does your Taurus have the tire size of 255/45R19? If so, then I would suggest the Michelin Primacy MXM4. Like the Goodyear, this tire is also rated highly within the Grand Touring All-Season category. The tire combines all-weather handling and traction with good noise and ride comfort. It also meets Michelin's Green X standard for low rolling resistance that indicates the tire's contribution to reducing vehicle fuel consumption and emissions for CO2 gases. For more information on the low rolling resistance capabilities of this tire, read "Michelin Green X."

If you have the SHO model and/or use size 245/45R20, the new Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 is an option you should strongly consider. We expect this to be our best selling Ultra High Performance All-Season tire before too long. Michelin claims this all-season tire has better dry grip than many leading dedicated summer tires. That's saying quite a bit and if you have a 365hp SHO, because you want as much grip as you can get. Plus with the benefit of all-season traction, you have year-round confidence to go along with a 45,000-mile treadlife warranty.

For the 2013-2015 Ford Taurus, the Michelin Pilot MXM4 is TOO NOISY! I replaced with Bridgestone Turanza Serenity, which is much better in every way. It's quieter, drives better, and presents car as a luxury car.
