Normally we include a spot in our lists for the longest lasting tire. And the Goodyear Assurance Max Life is always our top choice because, well, it has the longest tread life warranty.

But here we’re giving it our overall top pick. Yes, the fantastic 85,000 mile warranty plays a part. But this tire is also a solid all-season performance tire, with good handling dynamics and impressive braking performance in both the dry and wet.

And for what you get, it’s quire reasonably priced.

In this instance using the term budget feels wrong. Maybe “value” is a better term.

Still, both make this tire seems like it’s just good for what it is. And that’s not true.

The fact is, the Kumho Crugen HP71 is really a pretty first-rate tire. Handling isn’t quite as engaging as several others on this list, but it’s a touring tire and so that’s to be expected. Built for an ideal highway ride, it achieves that goal and because of it’s makeup, braking performance is first rate, in both the dry and wet.

The 65,000 mile warranty falls a bit short of rivals, but for the significantly lower price point, it’s more than worth the trade-off. If handling isn’t a huge concern for you, this bargain is a hard one to pass up.

A performance all-season, the Nankang Cross Sport SP-9 delivers on its promise of engaging handling thanks to a grippy tread compound. With three large center ribs to stay planed on the highway and deliver a stable ride, while reinforced shoulder tread sections offer more support in the corners.
