What Tire is Best for the Volvo XC60
Best Volvo XC60 Tire
Continental Cross Contact LX 25
A performance all-season that delivers a luxurious ride, there’s a lot to like about the Continental Cross Contact LX 25. Overall, handing is engaging and fitting for a premium SUV. Braking performance in both the dry and wet is some of the best you’ll find in this class of tire.
In addition, it comes with a 70,000 mile tread life warranty and when you consider all these factors is very reasonably priced.
Best All-Season Tire for Volvo XC60
Goodyear Assurance Weather Ready
You’ll pay a premium for this tire, but for many Volvo owners they’ll see the value. Rather than a conventional all-season, this tire truly is designed to perform in all seasons, including winter.
With the three-peak mountain snowflake logo on the sidewall you know this tire is certified for extreme winter use.
It also offers excellent performance in other seasons. Normally the smaller serrated tread blocks required for winter capability make for a poor tire in dry summer conditions, however, Goodyear designed a tire where the tread blocks lock together in hard cornering or braking to add stability to the tire.
As for wet weather, the tread on this tire actually wears away to make the water evacuation channels wider as the tire wears, allowing for consistent grip and performance mile after mile.
A 60,000 mile tread life warranty is also included.
Best Winter Tires for Volvo XC60
Bridgestone Blizzak DMV2
One of our favorite winter tires, the Bridgestone Blizzak DMV2 is a superior performer in snow. The ultra wide center section allows for incredible stability and handling on snow-packed roads, while the shoulder tread blocks even feature siping on the sides to help cornering capability in deeper snow.
Best Summer Tire for Volvo XC60
Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV
If you want to take your XC60’s handling and performance to the next level there’s no better way to do that than with the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV tire. Fancy tires, don’t come with fancy tread designs. At least not to the naked eye. This tire looks shockingly simplistic with numerous wide ribs in the middle of the tire to make for excellent responsiveness, fantastic braking performance and loads of grip. The shoulder tread blocks are also extra wide to handle the weight of an SUV, with an added rib next to them for maximum rigidity.
Grip is truly world-class. Pricing isn’t all that unreasonable either, although if you put a lot of miles on your machine, you’ll be replacing these relatively frequently. They’ll last beyond their 20,000 mile warranty, but not a lot more.
Best Run Flat Tire for Volvo XC60
There are several available run flat tires you can equip your XC6 with, but most don’t offer any warranty. And that rest don’t offer as significant a one.
Bringing together decent handling and a luxurious highway ride, the Bridgestone Driveguard adds a 60,000 mile warranty.
Longest Lasting Tire for Volvo XC60
Goodyear Assurance MaxLife
More miles than any other tire. If long life is what you’re after the Goodyear Assurance MaxLife tire has found the automotive fountain of youth. These tires are guaranteed to last at least 85,000 miles.
Beyond that, they’re reasonably grippy, as well as both comfortable and quiet on the highway. Priced quite affordably, they’d be a solid choice if they didn’t have an industry leading tire life. But they do!
Cheapest Tire for Volvo XC60
GT Radial Touring VP Plus
We can’t think many Volvo owners are out there looking for the absolute cheapest tire they can find, but if you are, the GT Radial Touring VP Plus is it.
The most affordable set of performance all-season tires, dry weather grip is actually decent, although wet weather performance is somewhat lacking.
Costing not much more than $110 per tire, they do come with a decent 50,000 mile tread life warranty.
Best Budget Tire for Volvo XC60
Falken Pro G5 CSV
If you’re looking to save on a set of XC60 tires but want value without just going to the cheapest tire available, we recommend the Falken Pro G5 CSV. Custom made for modern utility vehicles, this touring tire favors highway miles and eats them up comfortably and quietly.
Costing about 25% less than the premium options on this list, it comes with a rather good 60,000 mile tread life warranty.
