Best All-Season Performance Tires for Mercedes GLE

A performance all-season tire is likely to suite the needs and demands of most GLE owners, offering sufficiently engaging driving dynamics with all-season capability. Top among these is the Michelin Primacy Tour AS. It offers solid handling capabilities although it’s true stand-out skill is in stopping power, with a tread specifically designed to reduce braking distances for maximum safety.

Those in search of a more engaging drive should look to the Pirelli Scorpion Zero AS, while the Cooper Discoverer SRX-LE puts more focus on winter grip with tread blocks that are heavily siped. It’s not as engaging to drive and is slightly noisier, but its nice to have an edge n colder temperatures where most all-seasons become rather useless.

All three of the above options are actually available on the GLE direct from the factory. For an option that isn’t, the Continental Cross Contact LX 25 is a less-capable handling tire, but offers a true advantage in tread life with a warranty of 70,000 miles.

Summer High-Performance Tire for Mercedes GLE

If maximum grip is your goal, then a set of summer-only performance tires is ideal and top amongst those is the Michelin Latitude Sport 3. Designed to impressive handling with an ultra-grippy tread compound, it’s also built for modern SUVs with extremely wide water evacuation channels. It’s also engineered with Michelin’s latest low rolling resistance technology to help you save fuel. As is generally the case with Michelin performance tires, you’re getting the best, but you’re also paying a premium.

Taking a slight step down in overall grip and dynamics is the Pirelli P Zero PZ4 Sport and finally the Hankook Ventus S1 Evo 2
