Best Tire for Chevy Suburban
Bridgestone Dueler HL Alenza Plus
An amazing combination of luxurious ride quality and long life, the Bridgestone Dueler HL Alenza Plus is the ideal tire for any large SUV. Maximizing comfort on the road, while achieving incredibly low noise levels it performs admirably in driving dynamics too.
With an 80,000 mile tread life warranty they will also last an incredibly long time.
It’s not very often you get to use the term “value” on a premium tire like a Bridgestone, so take our advice and opt for a set of these.
Best Tire for Chevy Suburban (alternative)
Michelin Defender LTX MS
They’re not quite as sporty as the Bridgestones above, or as quiet. And they don’t last quite as long either. So it’s easy to see why the Michelin Defender LTX MS isn’t top of our list. But there’s a good reason it’s number two. That’s because this tire is designed with extra siping to give it an advantage in colder temperatures and winter weather.
While most all-seasons are just terrible in the winter, these out-perform the competition and offer some actual grip. So if you’re looking for tires to actually last all year round these are an excellent choice.
Best Highway Terrain Tire for Chevy Suburban
Continental Terrain Contact HT
Slightly more affordable than the Bridgestones above, the Continental Terrain Contact HT offers excellent highway manners and a great warranty of 70,000 miles.
Handling is decent, while braking performance in the wet and dry and both great. Offering solid all-season performance, it’s even capable of some light off-roading, so if you trust your trucks all-wheel drive system to get you somewhere a little ways off-road, these tires won’t let you down.
Cheapest Tire For Chevy Suburban
No one likes to spend money on things they don’t have to or don’t want to. And if for you that means set of tires, well, the Sentury UHPT is the best way to save and save big. Costing just around $100 per tire this is a performance all-season offering that’s a decent option for those who live in dryer climates. The extra wide center ribs make for more immediate response and the sticky tread compound delivers impressive grip overall. Unfortunately that rubber compound doesn’t have a particularly long life and won’t last much beyond the 40,000 mile warranty.
Best All-Terrain Tire for Chevy Suburban
BFGoorich All Terrain TA KO2
Some Suburbans come equipped from the factory with all-terrain tires, specifically the Goodyear Wrangler UltraTerrain AT. While not a bad tire, they’re also not great, so if you want the best off-road performance money can buy, the BFGoorich All Terrain TA KO2 is the only choice. It costs a premium, but it’s superior. With the best off-road grip available, it’s also more durable that rival tires thanks to sidewalls that are 20 percent thicker.
On-road performance is also quite impressive, with a well-planed feel. Overall, these tires are much less ponderous than other all-terrain options.
Some versions come certified for true winter use and all versions get a 55,000 mile tread life warranty.
Best All-Terrain Tire for Chevy Suburban (Alternative)
If you do want off-road grip, but don’t want to spend the big bucks, there are ways to get a lot of what you’re looking for, for a lot less money. The Pathfinder AT delivers above average off-road grip. The larger tread blocks give the tire stability on-road, while the void space between allows it to dig into soft surfaces off-road.
A 55,000 mile warranty is actually quite impressive for the discount price.
