Best All-Season Tire for Toyota Sequoia
Our top pick for the Sequoia will sound and look familiar to most any owner as Toyota saw fit to equip its biggest SUV with the Bridgestone Dueler HL Alenza straight from the factory. But rather than that tire, we recommend the Alenza Plus, which is the next-generation version of that tire with all the same great characteristics but an extended tread life with a warranty of 80,000 miles. It’s solid in all but true winter performance and is focused more on an excellent highway ride and civility than on sporty characteristics.
Those looking for an edge in winter can look to the Michelin Defender LTX MS. It’s roughly 10 percent more expensive and has a 70,000 mile warranty. It puts a focus on improved winter performance and handily beats out pretty much any other all-season for actual winter grip, both on light snow and in terms of stopping capability on clear roads when it’s below freezing.
As a final option, those looking for a touch more sporty performance should check out the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus II.
Best All Terrain Tire for Toyota Sequoia
If you plan to take your Sequoia off-road on the regular, then you’re going to need some capable and durable tires designed to do so.
Our top pick is the Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S, which combines impressive off-road grip with on-road civility and performance. They come with a lengthy 65,000 mile warranty and cost less than many rivals. Overall, a fantastic bargain.
Those in search of more capability can look to the Goodyear Wrangler UltraTerrain AT, which offers increased levels of grip, though with some on-road drawbacks.
The Nitto Terra Grappler G2 is another impressive option. It’s even more civilized than the Coopers, though the impact to off-road grip is more noticeable.
The Toyo Open Country AT III is brand new and is more off-road focuses than the AT II model before it. It’s impressively capable off-road in all sorts of surfaces and offers a fantastic tread life warranty of 65,000 miles. Much like the Coopers it’s also certified for use in true winter conditions. An extremely impressive tire, it’s also priced like one.
And speaking of extremely impressive and expensive, the BFGoodrich All Terrain TA KO2 is your best bet short of a mud-terrain tire to deliver world-class off-road grip. It’s also extremely durable with reinforced sidewalls and a tread that resists chunking.
Best Highway Terrain Tire for Toyota Sequoia
If an all-season tire won’t provide the off-road grip you’re after, but an all-terrain tire is just too extreme for your needs, then the Goldilocks solution is a highway terrain tire.
Our top pick in this category is the Continental Terrain Contact HT. Even in this category it’s more on-road focused with excellent comfort and low noise qualities, while it can still deliver added off-road grip when called upon.
As a more affordable option that’s only slightly less refined is the Hankook Dynapro HT RH12.
In addition, there are numerous other HT tires from brands like Yokohama and Toyo that you really can’t go wrong with.

Best Winter Tire for Toyota Sequoia
We find ourselves often recommending either the Michelin X-Ice or the Bridgestone Blizzak tire, with the Blizzaks better for climates with lots of snow or snow packed roads. The X-Ice has long been a great tire for clear, cold roads, but never the best in snow. The new X-Ice Snow version improves that significantly. We’d still say to go with the Blizzaks for snowy climates, it’s just that the Michelins are now much-improved for those rarer days when you do have to tackle a real storm.
