Best Ford Maverick Tires

Ford continues to innovate in the truck space, launching the Maverick small pickup with amazing fuel economy and an extremely attractive price point.

When it comes time to replace your Maverick’s tires, we’ve outlined a list of our top picks.


Best Tires for Ford Maverick

Our top pick is the Michelin Defender T+H for offering a quality year-round performer with impressive long life. Handling dynamics are also quite good, although you will pay top dollar for this tire. A close runner-up is the Continental Cross Contact LX 25. One of our regular top picks for any truck or SUV, it’s both luxurious and sporty with a longer tread life as well.

From there the Bridgestone Ecopia HL 422 Plus is less engaging to drive, but very quiet, comfortable and fuel efficient. You can also opt for the Bridgestone Dueler HL Alenza Plus which isn’t quiet as fuel efficient but is just as refined and offers longer life. It’s pricey, but it’s really built for big vehicles so if you’re going to tow, we like this option.

Next up on the slightly more affordable side of the top-tier tires are the Firestone Destination LE 3 and Yokohama Geolandar CV G058. And finally there’s the Michelin Defender LTX MS, another of our regular top picks. It’s really out-performs rivals in the snow, so if you should run winter tires where you live, but you just choose not to, these are one of your safest bests to get you though the winter. (Or opt for some four-season tires like the Michelin CrossContact2).

  1. Ready to turn in my 2018 Explorer limited with 20″ tires…why would Ford put 17 and 18 on even a small truck is beyond me. I’m looking at the Mav but going downsize bugs me. At least put 19″ on the Lariat model not 18″s. what’s wrong with that picture, Ford!
