We’re all looking for smooth riding tires for our Volvos.

The tires I was reading about before were the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred, but it only fits 16-inch Volvo wheels.

For 235/45-17, Bridgestone Turanza Serenity advertises a good ride, but they are the most expensive I’ve seen. I see the Continental ContiProContact advertise a good ride at a reasonable price. Other “good ride” tires advertised are Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum, Goodyear Eagle, and Michelin Pilot HX MXM4. I noticed while driving in rain with my Pirelli P6 Four Season tires that the car tended to hydroplane, so I would look at that rating next. What smooth riding tires have you liked on your Volvo?

“Bridgestone Turanza Serenity: We put these on our V70 and love them! I put the General Altimax on my S70 and they are really great, less expensive tires- drove through a ton of snow this past weekend and they fared well in that too (even though they’re an all-season tire).”


Michelin Pilot Sport A/S has worked best for my 04 S60 2.5T. 20,000 miles and wear has been excellent. Ride and handling is great too. Previous tires were Pirelli P6 which had to be replaced at 22,000. Like the previous post 235 45 ZR17 and cost about 1100. Costco would not install that tire on vehicle.

The tires I have for my 2002 t5 are the Michelan pilots. They handle like a dream and are as quiet as can be. There are two problems; cost and life. They last 40k period. I stretched my last set (I have had three sets now) to 47k and they road terribly (almost as bad as my spelling). If you buy them MSRP, they are about $1200 at Sears. I go to Costco and get their price then go back to sears for price match and get the road hazzard for free, and then through on a 10% coupon. That comes out to about $850 out the door. You won’t be disappointed in any aspect of the ride. Mine are 235-45zr17’s.
