Best Lincoln Nautilus Tires

Sibling to Ford’s popular Edge SUV, the Nautilus is as handsome as it is comfortable. A surprising all-around package, it’s also impressively tech-filled.

If you don’t want to compromise on performance, our top pick is exactly the same tire most Nautilus models come from the factory on, the Michelin Latitude Tour HP. It’s impressively grippy and offers a ride that’s both engaging and incredibly quiet and smooth. It’s expensive, however, and the warranty of 55,000 miles is quite low, but not when you consider the performance these tires bring.

If you’re willing to compromise on performance a little, the Yokohama YK-HTX won’t disappoint. In fact, overall performance is quite impressive, especially when it comes to stopping power in both the wet and dry.

Sliding slightly further down the performance ladder again is the Continental Cross Contact LX 25. It does offer improvements in cold weather and mild winter capability compared to the others. A 70,000 mile warranty is included and pricing is competitive.

Michelin Defender LTX MS is a top pick as well with the best cold weather and winter grip you can find in a conventional all-season. A 70,000 mile warranty is impressive and, as expected, pricing for this Michelin is steep.

Finally, there’s the Goodyear Assurance Weather Ready. It’s not really fair to call this an all-season as it has true winter capability and features the three-peak mountain snowflake logo on the sidewall as proof. Surprisingly it’s actually quite enjoyable to drive in the summer too. The 60,000 mile warranty is low for this segment and pricing is high, but with this option you won’t have to think about winter tires.

Best Highway Terrain Tires for Lincoln Nautilus

If you need some off-road capability but don’t want to compromise with on-road performance and civility, a highway terrain tire is the way to go. The Continental Terrain Contact HT is the best best with a 70,000 mile warranty, a reasonable price point and the best on-road dynamics and ride quality of the bunch. It’s off-road capability isn’t anything significant, but it’ a good step above an all-season tire.

If you want more off-road capability the Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT is your best bet. It costs quite a bit more, however, and comes with a slightly lower tread life.

The Yokohamas below are quite similar to the Continentals and while perhaps not quite as good in terms of on-road dynamics, the difference is slight. The price also is so you might want to save a few bucks with the Geolandar HT G056.
