These are the most bought tires for Dodge Durango because they provide the longest traction for the best price. Their 5-year/70-thousand mile treadwear warranty is enough to make Bridgestone Ecopia tires our top pick because I like how sturdy they are when hitting corners on the highway in SUVs like the Durango.

A 107.0 load index rating puts these on par with quality tires like Michelin Defender LTX meaning they’re for light truck tires made to withstand heavy weight and towing. These aren’t your average cheapo all-season tires (I wouldn’t trust cheap tires a the Durango), and they’re reasonably priced enough to be able to justify the purchase.

Look closely at the shoulder treads of the Bridgestone Ecopia—you’ll notice that they have uniform sipes that provide some pretty unbeatable traction when driving over puddles. These tires are no match for the snow, however, so you’ll want to keep snow tires/snow socks in your Durango if you plan on going up the canyon.

Since their speed rating is ‘T’ for safe speeds of up to 118 MPH (189 km/h), I’ve noticed that tread compounds on Ecopias are designed for comfortable highway driving with limited ride noise and excellent water shedding.

Bridgestone Ecopia tires have the best deal on Amazon, but you might also check Tire Rack’s website for deals. Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 is a good snow tires option for Dodge Durango.

Cooper tires make it easy to buy a new set of light truck tires for your Dodge Durango with the Cooper Discoverer HT Plus All-Season tires.

These are ultra-popular treads for the Durango because of their ‘x’ shaped tread pattern combined with circumferential grooves that perform nicely in both light snow and standing water.

The mileage warranty for Cooper Discoverers is a 6-year pro-rated warranty based on tread depth, so don’t forget to read the fine print before buying.

The downsides of opting for Cooper Discoverer HT Plus All-Season tires are that they don’t have sturdy biting edge shoulders for highway cornering and hydroplaning control.

These have a higher load rating/index rating than both Michelin Defender LTX and Bridgestone Ecopia and they cost less on top of that.

These are a badass honestly, I would totally buy these over most other choices for basic version of the Dodge Durango. Now, the ~400 horsepower Dodge Durange SRT is a whole different level of motor power than some of the base model Durangos, so I’d probably opt out of the Cooper Discoverer for aggressive driving.

You might also try Cooper Discoverer AT3 XLT for the Durango.

It’s never bad to spend more for better quality. Besides, we survive to do it the best way we know how…right? Pirelli dominates the market for high-end tires because of tires like the Pirelli Scorpion Verde, and if you can put a pair on a performance Durango, well then wow. You’re going to be having some fun.

I am an ultra-fan of Pirelli Scorpions because they make me feel like I’m going to lift off the ground driving at speeds well above one hundred miles an hour with the control and stability to handle the curves in the road and even adverse weather conditions simultaneously.

I highly recommend these for any Dodge Durango model to those who do mostly highway driving. If you’re an off-roader, you’re going to want to some Toyos or BFGs instead.

Both the Scorpion Verde and the Scorpion Verde All-Season Plus are extremely attractive tires from all aspects—the treads, the sidewall aesthetics, etc, are all just killing the game, and they’re typically not outrageously expensive because of their large sales volume.

Please note that there are a few different submodels of Scorpion Verde, and they all have different warranty info. For example, the regular summer design of Scorpion Verdes don’t have a treadwear warranty while the Scorpion Verde All-Season Touring tires carry a 65 thousand mile warranty.

You can run these in extreme conditions as long as you have the right tire chains or socks. We’re talking about one of the nicest tread compounds out there folks. It’s never bad to spend more for better quality.

I’ve noticed a lot of SUV, light truck, and van owners use Falken Wildpeaks consistently—that’s because the quality and price coincide nicely.

To me, these are no Toyo Open Country or Yokohama Geolandar as far as overall quality goes, but I’ll recommend them as economical for the Dodge Durango because that’s what I’ve seen come through the mechanic shop near me.

There are a few different submodels of the Falken Wildpeak including the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W which is one of the most-sold models for the Dodge Durango on Amazon. I personally always enjoy driving around on Falken Wildpeak Trails because they’re a versatile all-terrain choice.

All in all, I’d only put these on my Dodge Durango if they were on sale because I think they decrease fuel economy too much for a car that already doesn’t do that well. These tires do have the three peak snowflake symbol, but they’re not super effective in severe weather conditions.

On the other hand, if you do a lot of dirt road rallying in your Dodge Durango, then these are a perfectly good choice for your next set of tires.

Michelin Defender LTX tires are perfect for most Dodge Durango owners. I feel like the Durango is more of a highway vehicle, so it doesn’t need super-aggressive offroad traction like Jeeps do.

I would say that these tires are chauffer-quality tires, and that’s the reason why many fleet owners choose these long lasting Defender LTX over other brands—they’re less of a liability and they need less attention than other tires.

Yes, you still need to rotate Michelin Defenders and keep them properly inflated to the correct PSI, but all-season tires with this caliber of quality need little maintenance when inflated with Nitrogen instead of regular air from the compressor.

On a personal level, I’ve noticed that Michelin Defenders drive much smoother than most other all-season tires on the highway and over road bumps. The only other all-season tires I might use on a Dodge Durango other than these would be General Grabbers or anything Goodyear.

Spend extra on Michelin Defender LTX tires for the improved ride quality, 6-year/70-thousand mile warranty, and enhanced Evertread compound technology.

What Tire Size Is Best For A Dodge Durango?

There are several different submodels of the Dodge Durango that all have different tire sizes, so I suggest you plug your Durango into Tire Rack’s website for a list of tire sizes.

How Long Should Your Dodge Durango Tires Last?

When buying tires, you never know when a puncture will happen, and it could be right off the bat.

But generally, if you buy all-terrain tires or sports tires, they’ll last anywhere from 30 to 50 thousand miles while all-season tires tend to last a bit longer for conservative driving.

When To Replace Tires On Your Dodge Durango?

Replace all Durango tires with even treadwear at 2/32” (1.6mm) tread depth. Always good to measure all parts of the tread with a tread depth measurement tool.

Does The Brand Matter For A Dodge Durango When Replacing Tires?

For base model Durango yes, but for the SRT I say buy nicer tires to keep you safe when going fast.

Other decent brands of tires for the Dodge Durango include Continental Crosscontact, Nitto Terra Grappler G2, Goodyear Wrangler, Firestone Destination, General Grabbers, of course BFGoodrich,

Does the Year of Your Dodge Durango Matter When Buying New Tires?

Yes, plug in your Durango’s information on Tire Rack for a complete list of compatible tire sizes.

I’ve seen some pretty jacked up Dodge Durango suspension in my day, and I’d say that 31 inches is the largest tire I’ve seen on a base model Dodge Durango.
