Best Tires for Honda Odyssey

Michelin Defender T+H

For the Odyssey our top choice is the Michelin Defender T+H. As a Michelin you’re going to spend more, but you get more too. In addition to first rate ride quality and decent driving dynamics it offers 80,000 miles of tread life. As far as Michelin tires go, its not all that expensive either.

   

 

Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring

If you want to save a few dollars, the Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring cots approximately 15% less. It’s tread life of 70,000 miles isn’t far off and performance is very close to the Michelins. These tires are a definite bargain.

   

 

Michelin Defender LTX MS

Next up is another Michelin, the Defender LTX MS. What this tire lacks in driving dynamics it makes up for in winter grip, out-performing other all-seasons that really flounder in colder temperatures.

There’s heavy siping on the tread blocks for some actual winter grip and we’re impressed with its performance.

   

 

Additional All-Season Tires to Consider

The Continental Cross Contact is a premium option that’s just extremely well-balanced, offering good tread life, performance, ride quality and grip in the wet and winter.

Those looking for something sportier can’t go wrong with a set of Pirellis, like the Scorpion Verde All Season Plus II. While those who prefer a heightened road-manners should look at the Bridgestone Ecopia HL 422 Plus. It is, however, quite expensive. The Continental TrueContact is another smooth-riding tire with extra long life, but it’s not as good in snow.

Finally, for those looking for something more attractively priced, the Hankook Dynapro HP2 delivers while not giving up too much in any of the key categories. (If you are shopping on a tighter budget, see our list of budget options further down the page).

Most Comfortable Tires for Honda Odyssey

Goodyear Assurance ComfortDrive

One of the newest tires in Goodyear’s lineup, the new Assurance ComfortDrive replaced the ComforTred Touring tire with better performance and the same amazingly comfortable ride. A layer of absorbent material between the tire tread and the internal structure allows it to soften the impacts of all but the largest potholes.

It’s perfect for a luxury vehicle, and greatly enhances the smoothness of all other vehicles.

Handling performance in both the dry and wet and significantly improved, which is nice, although not a key criterial for a tire like this.

The down side is that the 60,000 mile tread life warranty, while decent, is 20k miles less than on the old tire.

   

 

Best Four Season Tire for Honda Odyssey

Michelin CrossClimate2

Michelin CrossClimate 2 Review

In addition to being an excellent all-season option the Michelin CrossClimate2 is legitimately certified for true winter use.

It looks like almost no other tire on the market thanks to a unique v-shaped patter that allows it to impressively evacuate water or slush. These ultra-wide tread sections also enable impressive dry performance and can handle plenty of lateral loads.

Each tread block is divided slightly with siping that, in the winter, works to suction snow to the tire to deliver grip. In the summer, these same sipes lock together to give a robust tread block for maximum handling.

A 60,000 mile tread life warranty is lower than most other all-seasons, but you do get a unique advantage with these tires. We’ll also add that they are quite expensive.

What Tires Come on the Honda Odyssey?

All versions of the Honda Odyssey come fitted with Bridgetone Turanza EL440 tires, including both 18- and 19-inch fitments.

How Long do Honda Odyssey Tires Last?

Modern Odysseys equipped with the Turanza EL440 tires should last approximately 50,000 miles. Bridgestone does not give a mileage life warranty on these tires, but based on user reviews this is about the maximum you can expect. The factory tires are no well rated by owners and one particular gripe is short tire life with many reporting they needed to replace their tires before 40,000 miles.
