Need Tires For Work? Try These Cargo Van Tires

Cargo van tires are designed for first-mile delivery vans like the Ford Transit, Connect Nissan NV200, RAM Promaster, and Mercedes Sprinter.

Traditional commercial vans like the Chevrolet Express and Ford E350 take traditional LT-Rated tires. LT245/75R16/E General Grabber HD is a Ford E350 size.

Cargo van tires pack more of a punch than most LT-rated tires. All-day, in and out, starting, stopping,  scrubbing, turning, curbs, potholes, and other debris.  These little tires need to be built tough! Downtime is a profit killer.

My favorite cargo van tire? 

I recommend the Michelin Agilis Cross Climate cargo van tire above anything else. We’ve had fleets get over 100,000 miles on these tires and throughout history, Michelin tires have delivered the lowest cost per mile and this tire is no different. 

A 235/65R16C Michelin Agilis Cross Climate will set you back about $300 including installation.

I like the all-weather tread design and durability, with cool-looking sidewall protectors and an aggressive, all-weather tread design.

Made with steel and polyamide belts, the Michelin Agilis Cross Climate is ideal for HVAC contractors and fleet vans that need to get around no matter the weather!

This is one tough tire!

If I owned a fleet of Ford Transit Connects, I’d choose the General Grabber HD!

Durable, decent in bad weather, and easy to get, I’ll usually recommend these for company-driver fleet and large first-mile delivery fleets.

Best car tire choices for 2020 - BFGoodrich Advantage Sport T/A

Best Car Tire Choices 2021

Buying tires is confusing. There are so many different kinds and sizes to choose from. Everyone claims to have the best tires at the best price, but what are the best tires. 

I’m a tire professional and I’m here to help you make good choices in tires. What makes my best tire choices different from the others is that I get to see first-hand how tires stand up to the wear and tear of Massachusetts roads and hear from customers about their real-world driving experiences.

“In my opinion, the best tires are not always the most expensive.”

Here are my 3 best car tire choices for 2021 –

If you’re a “spirited” driver, you’ll need a performance tire.

The BFGoodrich Advantage Sport T/A has the best combination of handling, all-season traction, and tread-wear I have seen. The tires wear even because their shoulders are strong.

The cool-looking tire has a wider tread footprint, but what sets the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport apart for me, is the full-depth tire sipes that provide all-season capabilities throughout the tire’s life.

If you just want to get in and drive, no matter the weather, you’ll need an all-weather tire. 

New in 2020, the new Michelin CrossClimate 2 is an all-weather tire.  Unlike traditional winter tires, the trade-off in handling and treadwear of the Michelin CrossClimate 2 is not as noticeable as other all-weather tires like the Nokian WRG4 or Toyo Celsius that also have the “three-peak mountain snowflake” (3PMSF) symbol, showing the tire has passed government testing to be considered severe snow service-rated.

The Michelin CrossClimate 2 rides nice needs to be broken in and well-maintained, but it looks like the new king of all-weather tires.

If you just want the best value in a tire, it’s hard to beat the General AltiMAX RT43. This is the benchmark for smooth-riding, all-season tires that check all the boxes. Made in North America, prices are reasonable and customers say this tire is great in the wet weather with a quiet ride.

With a 75,000-mile treadwear warranty and 45-day customer satisfaction pledge, the General AltiMAX RT43 is my best-value recommendation.
