Best Tires for Chrysler Pacifica
For the Pacifica there are a great many tire options, but our top rated one is the Michelin Defender T+H. It combines the best levels of ride quality with decent handling, solid all-season traction and long tread life. Pricing is on the high side, but that’s expected, both for a Michelin and for the best tire you can buy.
Substantially more affordable is the Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring. With an estimated tread life of 70,000 miles, that’s less than the Michelins, but still on the high side for a tire in this category. Driving dynamic are again decent, while highway ride quality is excellent. If this tire had a different name on it, you’d have to pay a lot more, so consider this a rare bargain.
Next up is a true premium offering from Continental. The Cross Contact LX 25 is a touch sportier and offers superior cold weather and winter traction to most all-seasons. Tread life is a bit less at 65,000 mile and pricing is mid-pack.
From there the Michelin Defender LTX MS is always a unique and popular option. This tire does lack in overall handling dynamics, but that’s due to enhancements in the tread so it performs better in the cold and even light snow – when you want it most. It’s no secret that all-season tires are miserable in snow, and while these don’t perform at the level of a winter tire, they’re far superior to other all-seasons and make an excellent choice for those who just don’t want to swap tires in the winter.
While the tires above don’t put much focus on driving dynamics the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus II and Yokohama Geolandar CV G058 both do.
For some final options, the Bridgestone Ecopia HL 422 Plus is another extremely well-rounded tire and offers some impressive fuel saving technology (ideal for the Pacifica Hybrid). It does cost premium though. The Continental TrueContact Tour is an impressively long-lasting tire, but it really does suffer in colder temperatures so we’d only recommend it for those in warmer climates
And finally there’s the General Altimax RT43. It’s not quite at the same level as other tire on this list but is available in a T-speed rated option for the Pacifica, which combines long life of 75,000 miles with a fantastic price point.

Of the options below we’d rate the Bridgestones first with the Michelin’s a close second. The Pirellis don’t quite offer the same level of grip but they are substantially cheaper.
Best Four-Season Tires for Chrysler Pacifica
Brands are increasingly offering all-season tires that actually come rated for extreme winter use and therefore receive the three-peak mountain snowflake logo rating. Commonly known as four-season or all-weather tires, two of the best options are from Goodyear and a newer offering from Michelin. Both do cost a premium.
