Goodyear Assurance MaxLife

Goodyear Assurance MaxLife Review

The Goodyear Assurance MaxLife often makes a list like this for the longest lasting tire available, but here we’ve also selected them as a top choice. They are slightly more expensive than the majority of top performing tires, although they’re more than worth it on the 85,000 mile warranty alone. Add in their overall refinement and solid driving dynamics and you have a top performer.

Continental Cross Contact LX 25

Continental CrossContact LX 25 Review

We often recommend these Continentals based on their overall performance statistics. Costing slightly less than the Goodyears, but with a much lower 70,000 mile warranty, they’re our second choice only due to the size of the gap in overall tread life.

Grip in wet and wintry weather is higher with these tires, though.


Best Four-Season Tire for Infiniti QX60

Michelin CrossClimate2

Michelin CrossClimate 2 Review

An extremely unique tire, the Michelin CrossClimate2 is both an excellent all-season and a legitimate winter-capable tire.

Costing roughly 10-15% more than most other all-seasons the warranty of 60,000 miles is also under most top-tier rivals. As a result, on paper, they don’t look like a great option.

What they do offer, however, is true all-season performance with a tread that’s certified for extreme winter use, so you can buy these tires and confidently drive them all year round no matter what part of the country you live in.

The ultra-wide v-shaped tread blocks offer impressive stability in cornering, while the patter also works impressively to force water and slush away from the contact patch.

Sipes that run between the tread blocks track snow for maximum winter grip, while those same sipes close up under hard cornering for added stability.


Best All-Season Performance Tire for Infiniti QX60

Michelin Primacy Tour AS

If you’re looking for a tire that’s a touch more performance focused without sacrificing too much in terms of all-weather grip, ride quality or tread life, then the Michelin Primacy Tour AS makes an excellent package.

A sticker tread compound and wide exterior tread blocks mean it doesn’t just have more overall grip, but it offers it progressively, with a more nimble feel. And when you do hit the limits of grip, it comes on naturally.

You will sacrifice some tread life (expect to get from 45,000 to 55,000 miles on a set) but these tires will keep your Infiniti as agile as it can be.


Longest Lasting Tire for Infiniti QX60

Goodyear Assurance Max Life

Goodyear Assurance MaxLife Review

An excellent all-season tire by all respects, what makes the Max Life stand out is (you guessed it) it’s incredible long life.

With an anticipated tread life of 85,000 miles it’s a good thing these tires are so well-rounded because you’ll be enjoying them for years to come. Or more to the point, you won’t be thinking about them at all, as they do their job capably and get you where you need to go.

The ride is slightly stiffer than other all-season tires, due in part to the particularly hard tread compound, but you won’t notice much on the QX60’s compliant suspension.


Best Budget Tire for Infiniti QX60

Kumho Crugen HP71

Kumho Crugen HP71 Review

Passable handling is really this tire’s biggest drawback. And all said, that’s not such a huge critique.

The ride quality is good, as is the low noise level. All-season performance, in both the dry and wet, is also quite good.

Tread life of 65,000 miles is certainly nothing to complain about either.

Essentially, this is a pretty agreeable option at a very agreeable price.

Best Winter Tire for Infiniti QX60

Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Expensive but worth it. A solid cold weather tire, the Blizzak DM-V2 really shines when the snow starts flying.

The tight mesh of tread blocks makes it incredibly stable on snow covered roads, and the unique pattern of siping on the tread means it has amazing traction under acceleration, braking and cornering.
