The biggest and most luxurious Hyundai to date, this car is a testament to just how far the brand has come over the past decade. Offering a serious rival in the segment to long time favorites like the Toyota Highlander, Ford Explorer and Honda Pilot, the Palisade delivers family-friendly features and plenty of tech in a stylish package.
Hyundai Palisade Tire Size
Depending on the trim level of Palisade you have, there are two main tire sizes that come equipped on the car from the factory, with a standard 18-inch size across a wider range of models, and a larger 20-inch wheel with a lower-profile tire on top-trim versions.
Below is a list we’ve compiled of the best Hyundai Palisade tires based on everything from handling and braking, noise and comfort, mileage warranty and, of course, price.
Best Hyundai Palisade Tire
Michelin Defender LTX MS
When it comes time to replace your Palisade’s tires, it’s hard to pick a better choice than the Defender LTX MS from Michelin.
Overall performance is extremely well-rounded, while it makes use of Michelin’s new Evertread rubber compound that’s designed to resist wear over time.
Driving dynamics are decent in the dry and wet weather grip and stopping capability is excellent. Heavily siped its also decent in winter, although you’ll probably still want to swap them out for a set of winter tires when the seasons change.
Designed to meet the needs of modern crossover drivers the Defender LTX MS is smooth and quiet. It’s also designed to minimize rolling resistance, helping you save up to 65 gallons of fuel over the life of the tire.
All this and it comes with a 70,000 mile tread life warranty.
Hyundai Palisade OE Replacement Tires
Pirelli Scorpion Zero AS
A gripper and more engaging ride than the Michelin’s above, these tires are likely what came on your Palisade from the factory. And if you’re looking to retain that same level of driving engagement and ride quality, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better replacement.
Driving dynamics and braking performance in the wet are real stand-outs for this tire and wet weather grip is well-above average too thanks to the silica-enhanced tread compound.
Quiet and comfortable, the only real down side is that the more engaging ride comes with a tire compound that wears faster with a 60,000 mile tread life rating. They do, however, cost about 25% less than the Michelins.
Best All-Season Hyundai Palisade Tire
Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady
Here’s one of our go-to tire recommendations for those who live in colder climates and just can’t be bothered with swapping on winter tires when the mercury drops. That’s because this isn’t just an all-season tire but a true four-season tire, thanks to a unique soybean oil-infused tread compound that resists freezing in colder temperatures. Meanwhile the custom tread design works to grip all year long.
Proudly displaying the three-peak mountain snowflake logo on the sidewall, the Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady is certified for true winter driving.
Beyond that it’s actually an exceptional wet weather tire too. The tread compound evacuates water and slush easily, while the circumferential tread grooves “open-up” as the tread wears to maintain.
Slightly louder than some of the other tires on this list, only the most sensitive of ears are likely to notice. And modern cars like the Palisade do such a good job of muddling the outside noise you probably never will.
If there are any drawbacks to this tire it’s that the tread life warranty of 60,000 miles isn’t as high as some (it’s about average overall) and you do pay a premium for the extra capability.
Cheapest Tire for Hyundai Palisade
Laufenn S Fit AS
If you’re looking to save money on your next set of tires and increase driving performance, Laufenn has the answer for you. We’ll point out, however, that this tire is not without its drawbacks.
Part of a new budget-focused sub-brand from Hankook, this particular tire offers loads of grip and excellent dry performance. Wet weather grip is solid, and the tire performs well in deep water due to the large circumferential grooves.
Designed for year-round grip, performance drops off quite quickly in colder temperatures. The other drawback is the 45,000 mile tread life, which is quite short. For the price, however, this is a solid deal – though maybe a bit too performance focused for a three-row crossover.
Cheapest Hyundai Palisade Tire
OK, let’s get something clear, this isn’t the absolute cheapest tire you can buy for the Hyundai Palisade. That honor actually belongs to the GT Radial Touring VP Plus. We’d caution that that tire just isn’t very good overall with low driving dynamics and stopping scores and a below-average tread life warranty. But if you absolutely need the cheapest, click here.
Instead we’re going to recommend the Pathfinder HT. You probably haven’t ever heard of Pathfinder tires, but don’t let that scare you. It’s actually the house brand of Discount Tire, meaning it’s actually manufactured by some other brand. They just won’t tell us who.
Based on what you get here, it’s probably someone decent, because this tire offers a solid level of driving dynamics and stopping power and dry and wet conditions. Large circumferential grooves help evacuate water easily, while a mostly solid center rib makes for great highway manners and responsive turn-in.
Combined with a 60,000 mile tread life warranty and a very attractive price (around $80 less per tire than some of the top performers on this list) it’s a solid choice for the budget conscious.
Best Hyundai Palisade Winter Tire
Bridgestone Blizzak DMV2
If you are looking for winter tires for your Palisade, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better one than the Blizzak DMV2. We love these tires for their amazing performance in snow and and on snow.
The extremely wide center section of the tire makes for an amazing footprint on snow covered roads.
