Best Tires for GMC Canyon

Tire shopping for the GMC Canyon is no easy feat as there are almost 100 different options to choose from. Out of all of them our top pick is the Continental Terrain Contact HT, which combines impressive on-road driving dynamics, with light off-road capability and a very competitive price point.

If you really don’t intend on doing any off-roading, then the Continental Cross Contact LX 25 could be a better fit, with the same 70,000 mile warranty, a slightly higher price point, but with superior on-road dynamics and a quieter ride.

A runner-up to these Continentals is the Bridgestone Dueler HL Alenza Plus. It offers an 80,000 mile warranty but costs a premium. On-road performance is only minimally less-impressive than the Contis. Then there’s the Bridgestone Dueler LTH, which is only available via Discount Tire and offers essentially the same on-road dynamics, with a 70,000 mile warranty for about $20 less per tire.

We should also point out the Michelin Defender LTX MS. This more expensive tire is an unusual one. It’s on road grip, particularly in the wet, is lacking compared to the other tires on this list, however, it offers superior cold weather and light snow traction to them. So for the right buyer who doesn’t want to swap tires, it could be a good fit.

As a final option, the Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT is what comes equipped on most Canyon models from the factory. It’s reasonably affordable, has a decent 65,000 mile warranty and is perhaps the most capable off-roader of the bunch – though if you’re looking for all-terrain grip, do see our suggestions a little further down the page.

Best All-Terrain Tires for GMC Canyon

If you’re looking for tires with more off-road capability, here are three of our top picks for the GMC Canyon. First up, you simply can’t beat the grip or the durability of the BFGoodrich All Terrain TA KO2s. A 50,000 mile warranty is certainly on the lower side, the price is on the higher side and there are definitely compromises made here in terms of on-road grip and noise quality. So all that performance is not without its drawbacks.

A more well-rounded tire is the Goodyear Wrangler All Terrain Adventure with Kevlar. Better on-road, particularly when it comes to wet weather braking performance, and quieter too, they get a 60,000 mile warranty and cost slightly less.

Finally we’d suggest taking a look at the Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S. Edging the Goodyear’s in on-road dynamics they get a longer 65,000 mile warranty at a lower price point. They aren’t as extremely capable, but they’re definitely the easiest to live with of the bunch for day-to-day driving.
