What Tire is Best for the Ford Edge?

Best Tire for Ford Edge

Yokohama YK-HTX

 

An impressive handling all-season tire the Yokohama YK-HTX does many things well. It’s built with an even compromise between highway ride quality and cornering capability. Plus grip in the dry and wet, especially under braking, are both impressive.

With a 70,000 mile tread life warranty it’s designed to last for many years.

Overall, it offers the characteristics of a more premium tire without the price.

 

Best Tire for Ford Edge (alternative)

Michelin Defender LTX MS

Michelin build the Defender LTX MS to perform long term and even after plenty of abuse. And we don’t just mean after lots of miles but after lots of hard miles,

In terms of all-season performance the tire performs admirably in dry and wet braking, though not quite up to the high expectations we have of a Michelin. Winter capability is quite impressive for an all-season offering superior grip than most in the segment (thought still not comparable to a true winter tire).

The tread also makes use of unique low rolling resistance features to save up to 65 gallons of fuel over the life of the tire.

With a 70,000 mile tread life warranty, many drivers report surpassing that number by a significant margin.

If there’s any down-side, it’s that this tire is quite expensive.

 

Best All Season Tire for Ford Edge

Goodyear Assurance Weather Ready

Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady Review

Goodyear’s Assurance Weather Ready tire is more than just an all-season tire, it’s a four-season tire. A custom tread compound and plenty of siping mean it’s been certified for true winter use. So while you may have heard that all-season tires aren’t really for all-seasons, this tire is an exception.

All the features that make this tire ideal for winter should impact it’s ability to deliver dynamic handling in the summer months, but it doesn’t. Again, Goodyear designed a feature where the tread blocks lock together under heavy loads, helping support each other and maintain an engaging drive.

There’s also some impressive wet weather technology with water evacuation channels that widen as the tire wears to maintain consistent grip over the life fo the tire.

At 60,000 miles, that’s less than some of the other premium brands offer, but they won’t give you true winter capability like this tire will.

 

Best Budget Tire for Ford Edge

Pathfinder HT

For those looking to save some money on a set of tires, without giving up too much in other areas, the Pathfinder HT is our top choice. This highway terrain tire is built more for a comfortable highway ride and less so for engaging driving dynamics. The sturdy center rib and large shoulder blocks give it a planted highway ride.

With numerous serrated edges on the tire tread blocks its all season grip is surprisingly good for a budget tire.

A 60,000 mile warranty can give you confidence that these tires will last for the long term while the pricing makes them an attractive buy right now.

 

Cheapest Tire for Ford Edge

Sentury Crossover

If you’re ok with compromising to just get the cheapest set of replacement tires you can find, then the Sentury Crossover tire is the one for you. Priced at under $100 per tire it offers decent dry braking, though wet weather grip could be improved. A gripper rubber compound means it’s actually a pretty engaging tire to drive in dry conditions. Unfortunately that also means the tread compound will wear out sooner and Sentury only offers a 40,000 mile tread life warranty on the tires.
