Hello,

Currently shopping for new tires for my 2013 Ridgeline, size 245/60 18Ē. Came stock with Hankook Dynapro HP2. While decently quiet and they seem to have low rolling resistance, their wet traction is terrible. As a little background, I do run a dedicated set of winter tires (Nokian Hakka R2) when the time calls for it.

Iím looking at a few different tire choices. First up is the highway all season truck tire, the General Grabber HTS 60, Michelin Defender LTX M/S or Cooper Discoverer HT Plus. In the crossover/touring the Pirelli Scorpion Verde all season plus or Nokian Entyre C/S. In the AT category the newer Continental Terrrain Contact AT, normally I would not consider an AT tire as the most I drive on is state maintained dirt roads and some very limited secondary roads not maintained by the state, but the Continental says itís for people who drive 90% on road and 10% off.

What I am looking for is a quiet tire, with lower rolling resistance that can also extend my running of them if need be into the winter. What I mean by that is something with some decent winter traction, I just took of my Nokians because here in PA we will have had over two weeks of above average temps directly after two decent snowfalls, I just didnít want to wear down my Hakkas on my daily commute when itís 50-70 degrees out during the day. But we still sometimes get snow in March, and Iíd like to have something that can be run 3 1/2 season maybe..

I have the Discoverer HTs on my XJ and they're awful in rain and snow, even mild snow. Have to use 4WD a lot.

I had these on my LR3:
https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp...rtnum=56VR8KL51

They were super quiet, rode nice and good wet traction. I lived in Florida at the time so never tried them in snow, but I would think they're decent. They have cool sidewalls too. Only downside was longevity, got about 30k from the set. But that's on a 6000lb LR3 and I was less that anal about rotating them. Used to run them on sand and dirt roads often too.

Many reviews on Tirerack complaining about horrible wear on those Road Venture tires.

Cooper Discover HT plus are not made in your size. If i like cooper u could do the SRX or the Evolution HT. My first choice would be the Michelin defender ltx m/s. Another tire I'd consider is the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport LT.

See if you can find a Sumitomo touring tire in your size. My Ridgeline size is different, but I like the smooth ride of the Sumitomos.

I live in a very hilly snowy icy area. Used to run two sets of tires on the truck because of the terrain. But then one year I decided to go with just the Bridgestone Dueler Alenza all season tires I was using for summer which was the OEM tire. The past several years they have performed very well. No slipping no spinning it's been great. I guess GM knew what they were doing when they selected this as the factory tire. That's what I would put on yours.
