When it comes time to replace your GV70s tires the Continental Cross Contact LX 25 is one of our top recommended tires for luxury SUVs. It’s equal parts sophistication and performance matched with an impressive long life. Up next is the Michelin Premier LTX with slightly less tread life but offers superior performance over the full tire life.

Pirellis are always a strong choice for those looking for a more engaging ride in their utility vehicle, while these specific Verde models also come with the latest fuel saving technology.

The Bridgestone Ecopia are both built to maximize fuel economy and deliver the most sophisticated drive of the group here. They do lack somewhat in driving dynamics compared to the others though.

Finally, there’s the Yokohama Geolandar CV G058 which is all parts a rival to the Continentals. It’s not quite as engaging to drive and has a slightly reduced tread life, but offers impressive winter grip and costs a bit less.

Best Performance Tire for Genesis GV70

Here we recommend Michelin’s all-season option first because it really does offer enough performance for almost any driver, while still delivering the year-round grip and safety that you want. If you do, however, want absolute max performance, then the Pilot Sport 4S is your best choice. The Pirellis are our runner-up. Both will wear around 20,000 miles but the Michelins tend to maintain their full performance for much more of their lifecycle.
