Best Tires for the Chevrolet Volt

The first Chevrolet Volts that were product in 2011 came with a stock tire size of 215-55-17.  That did not change until 2016 when a new generation of Volts shipped with a stock tire size of 215-50-17.  Both tire sizes are nearly identical and will fit 17-inch rims, but the new size has an overall diameter that is 0.86 inches shorter. 

We scoured to find the best replacement tires for your Chevrolet Volt.  Over 80 tires and hundreds of product reviews later, we have narrowed it down to the following top 5 list.

#1 - Hankook Kinergy GT All-Season Radial Tire

These bad boys come with a 70,000 mile warranty at a really affordable price.  Customers report a smooth, comfortable ride that handles well in snow.  One customer is tickled to death that there is no noise.  With such an amazing warranty, the tires might outlast your ownership of the Volt.

#2 - Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 Performance Radial Tire

Our number two pick comes from the same awesome brand out of South Korea.  Customers report superior grip on wet roads and even an extra 3 to 5 miles per charge!  A bit of a rougher ride than our first pick, these Hankook tires are still an excellent choice.  They come with a 50,000 mile warranty.

#3 - BFGoodrich 29016 g-Force COMP-2 A/S All-Season Radial Tire

With a 45,000 mile warranty, users report that these BFGoodrich tires get unbelievable grip in wet and dry conditions.  Some customers are skeptical that the tires will last for the whole 45,000 mile warranty since they grip so well and usually that means fast wear.  Multiple customers report a profound change in braking performance.  On the downside, they look a little bulky.

#4 - Michelin Premier A/S Touring Radial Tire

Customers report that these tires rated for 60,000 miles are extremely quiet.  They come with Michelin EverGrip Technology, which has expanding rain grooves that widen and emerging grooves that open as the tire wears to maintain traction.  Sunflower oil keeps the EverGrip compound flexible in lower temperatures on icy roads.

#5 - Yokohama ENVigor All-Season Tire

One user managed to put 80,000 miles on these tires before replacing them.  Great traction on rainy or snowy roads.  Tires are designed to combine performance, comfort, and treadlife.
