Best Tires for Dodge Journey

17-inch Options

Below we’ve listed five of our top options for the Dodge Journey. All of them are priced on the high side. Topping our list is the┬áMichelin Defender T+H with its balanced performance, all-season grip and an impressive 80,000 mile warranty. Offering similar long life but at a cheaper price and slightly less engaging handling dynamics is the Continental Control Contact Tour AS Plus. In fact, the┬áContinental Cross Contact LX 25 is closer in keeping with the Michelin’s driving performance but comes with a lower 70,000 mile warranty and the most attractive pricing yet.

The Yokohamas below are actually a nice blend of both Contis, delivering an engaging drive, excellent ride quality and a fair price.

And finally there’s the Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady. This unique tire costs significantly more but there’s a reason for it, namely, that it offers full four-season grip and comes rated for true winter capability with the three peak mountain snowflake logo on its sidewall.
