The Best All Season Truck Tires
So you’ve got truck or SUV and the tires that came with it are nearing the end of their usable life. What do you buy next?
It’s a daunting question and there are a lot of answers. For some you’ll want all-terrain or mud-terrain tires. For others, performance tires might be in order. For most folks, however, you need a reliable and affordable set of all-season tires that offer great on-road grip (perhaps some occasional off-road traction) and that will last a long time. In other words, you need well-rounded value.
Do we have a list for you!
We’ve broken the options down below with some of our overall top performers, as well as some options depending on your particular driving style, budget and needs.
The Best all-Season Truck Tire
Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus
As already mentioned, if you’re reading this list you’re in the market for a well-rounded tire. And while that description applies to every tire on this list (in different amounts) the MOST well rounded is this one: the Bridgestone Dueler H/T Alenza Plus.
The package here is pretty simple. It’s got great on-road grip in dry and wet conditions plus above-average winter performance. Pricing is on the higher end, but so is the value. And one of the biggest reasons for that is the huge 80,000 mile tread life warranty.
This tire is a good decision that you’ll be glad about for years and years.
It even has some nifty features like sidewalls that are designed to avoid fading – so your tires always look nice.
The Best all Season Truck Tire (Runner up)
Michelin Defender LTX M/S
Michelin might not be the go-to brand for off-roading tires, but that’s about it. When it comes to street performance, or just building a well-rounded tire, they know how to do it. With a treadwear warranty ranging from 50,000 on LT versions up to 70,000 miles depending on the tire, this all-season tire is build for long life even if you do semi-regular driving off the paved road.
And it doesn’t just last long either, this tire is an exceptional performer in pretty much all ways. Making use of the brand’s latest technology it’s designed to perform better in both the wet and snow thanks to heavy siping on the tread blocks that give it extra biting edges and help snow stick to the tread to provide grip.
While we do always recommend proper winter tires if you live somewhere with snow, if you’re really not going to do that, then the Defender LTX MS offers some of the best snow grip available in an all-season.
As another added benefit, while this tire isn’t designed for off-road use, if you do use it on gravel roads occasionally it holds up extremely well.
Of note, don’t confuse this with the Premiere LTX, which we don’t recommend.
Most Comfortable All-Season Tire
Goodyear Assurance Comfortred Touring
Easily a top choice, the Assurance Comfortred Touring gets top marks for… duh… it’s comfort. Goodyear achieved this feat as a result of a layer of rubber placed between the tread and steel belts of the tire, which it claims can absorb 20% more of an impact than conventional tires.
Plus, based on the speed rating of the tire, they come with either a 70,000 or 80,000 mile tread life warranty!
Pricing is on the high side and driving dynamics are a bit lower than some of the other available options. Still, if you want a cushy ride, this is your tire.
Best Budget All-Season Tire
General Grabber HTS60
Offering a treadwear warranty that matches many of the premium brands on this list (65,000 miles) the Grabber HTS60 delivers decent on-road grip and comfort though could be a touch quieter.
The reinforced shoulder blocks provide decent cornering capability in the dry, while the serrated tread blocks offer extra grip in the wet and cold.
Overall, this is our top pick in the budget category.
Best Off-Road All-Season Tire
Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT
This tire only loosely fits on this list. The Wrangler Fourtitude HT is a highway terrain tire and so is only sort of an all-season tire.
Dry weather grip could be a bit better and overall handling feel isn’t as good as some rivals. On the flip side, it’s more off-road capable than anything else on this list thanks to a unique tread design with plenty of extra edges. So if you do need occasional off-road grip, this is an excellent option that won’t leave you wishing for a quieter tire when you’re on the highway.
Tread life is solid too with a 65,000 mile warranty for standard sizes, though the LT versions do only get a 50,000 mile warranty.
Best Road Hazard Warranty All-Season Tire
Continental CrossContact LX20
We’ll start our blurb on this tire out with a caveat: it doesn’t come very well recommended by owners. That’s not to say we’ve had a bad experience with it, but owners have reportedly a higher than normal number of instances where the tread pattern wears out early.
What we do really like is the brand’s Total Confidence Plan. This covers roadside assistance, where Continental will cover a tire change (to your spare) or a tow for up to 150 miles if you get a flat. Plus, it comes with a road hazard plan that will replace the tire free of charge in the first 12 months.
Best Eco All-Season Tire
Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus
With a 65,000 mile warranty, this eco tire is designed with improved rolling resistance in mind. What that means is that it will improve your truck’s fuel economy, which could result in significant savings over the tire’s life.
As a Pirelli you shouldn’t be surprised that overall handling is also a priority here, so this is one all-season that will give you more grip and better driving feel than most.
Best All Season Tire for Winter
Goodyear Assurance CS TripleTred All Season
One look at this tire’s tread and you know it’s not a conventional all-season tire. The directional pattern gives it a unique sporty look, and yet the numerous small blocks and plenty of biting edges make it look more focused on grip in low-grip circumstances. In reality, both are true. The Goodyear Assurance CS TripleTred All Season tire is very much designed to offer excellent traction in dry and wet and even in mild snow. While we never recommend an all-season tire for winter, this one is designed to perform better than many. It’s also very highly rated for wet weather grip.
Best All-Season Performance Tire
BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S
The BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S isn’t a bad tire and doesn’t belong this far down on the list. Far from it! So why did we put it here?
It’s not really that relevant for most “truck” buyers. BFGoodrich does make versions of this tire for some crossovers, but it’s generally designed for performance sedans.
As such, it offers vastly more wet or dry grip than any other tire on this list, while still offering a very reasonable 45,000 mile treadwear warranty.
Also Worth a Look
Firestone Destination LE2
We really like this tire’s dry weather grip and predictable handling, although it’s a touch ponderous on the highway. It’s both comfortable and quiet. About the only drawback, if you can call it that, is the 60,000 mile treadwear warranty, which isn’t quite as significant as some competitors.
Still, the pricing is a good 20% less than some of the top-tier options on this list.
Also Worth a Look
Cooper Discoverer HTP
This highway terrain tire is has one serious drawback compared to the others on this list: tread life. That’s not to say it will wear out fast, but it could – Cooper doesn’t give it any factory treadwear warranty. The trade-off for this is a tire that looks more styling than a conventional all-season. Still, it’s not a performance tire, so don’t expert amazing grip from it. We’d also recommend checking out the Discoverer HT3, which offers many of the same advantages but with a 50,000 mile warranty.
Best All-Season Truck Tire for Snow and Ice
Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S
The Cooper AT3 4S isn’t really an all-season tire. Instead it’s what’s known as a four-season tire. It’s also an all-terrain tire, so you’re getting a crazy amount of capability in one package here.
As for what a “four-season” tire is, well, that means it’s been certified for true winter use and features the three-peak mountain snowflake logo on the sidewall. As a result, it will deliver true winter-tire performance, but is also a suitable tire to drive on-road the rest of the year. And because this is also an all-terrain tire, it can do all that off-road too. In fact, for its rather subtle tread design, these Coopers offer surprisingly high levels of off-road grip.
Plus, it comes with a 65,000 mile tread life warranty.
Longest Lasting All-Season Truck Tire
Goodyear Assurance MaxLife
With a massive selection of fitments, anyone searching for all-season truck tires that will last and last should make their first choice the Goodyear Assurance MaxLife.
Offering a decent balance between highway comfort and sporty performance at a decent price, this tire would be a good option for many drivers even without its warranty. Then, add in a warranty of 85,000 miles (the most of any tire in its class) and this tire is extremely attractive.
