This article will give insight into the best tire options for the 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour
With its beautiful leather seats and unique design, the Honda Accord Crosstour is one of the best midsize crossovers, especially given its low retail price. It was first introduced in 2010, and was the 4th most popular vehicle sold that year (over 300,000 units).

The base model Honda Accord Crosstour came with Bridgestone Dueler H/T 470 tires. This tire has a UTQG rating of 360, and a traction rating of B. Based on those ratings you can expect between 35,000 to 40,000 miles in tread life. The “B” traction rating is not ideal since it is the lowest rating a tire can be assigned by the federal government in this category. So, overall the Bridgestone Dueler H/T 470 is an average to below average tire.
Thankfully, there are a number of great alternative options available in this popular size. The Michelin Defender is one of the best options you can put on your Honda Accord Crosstour. It replaces the popular Michelin Hydroedge and improves upon it with a 90,000 mile tread life warranty. The Defender provides numerous advantages over many competitive tires including shorter braking distance, the longest tread life warranty, and increased fuel efficiency. If you are looking for the longest tread life possible, and a smooth comfortable ride, the Defender is your tire.
The BFGoodrich Advantage T/A has a UTQG of 680 and a traction rating of A. That means you can expect between 65,000 to 70,000 miles in tread life, and superior traction (the “A” traction rating is one of the best ratings that can be assigned). With its low price point and long tread life, it’s an excellent option if you don’t want to spend your whole paycheck on new tires. AutoSquad customers agree with our assessment and have rated this tire a 4.4 out of 5.
The Yokohama AVID Ascend is another high tread life, low cost option. It’s made with Orange Oil technology that gives it a very long tread life (85,000 miles) and excellent fuel efficiency, resulting in as much as $382 in savings over a conventional tire during the course of its tread life.
The Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology is another great option for increasing your fuel efficiency without spending an arm and a leg. It comes standard with an 80,000 mile tread life warranty and rates a 4/5 overall by our customers. The EcoPlus Technology results in a much longer lasting tire and it comes standard with a 60 Day Customer Satisfaction Ride Guarantee
Honda Accord Crosstour EX-L Tires – 225/60R18 100H
The premier model of the Honda Accord Crosstour came standard with 18” tires, giving it a more aggressive look. The Original Equipment tire was the Michelin Latitude Tour HP. This tire was assigned a 440 A A UTQG rating, meaning you can expect between 40,000 to 45,000 miles of tread life and great traction. I certainly recommend this as a great fit, however there are a number of comparable options that will give you a more comfortable ride and longer tread life.
The Cooper CS4 Touring is a highly rated tire by industry professionals, including Consumer Reports, with a 60,000 mile tread life warranty. The CS4 Touring was designed for drivers who want optimum ride comfort, sporty handling, and superior all season traction, which is right in line with the Honda Accord Crosstour. It offers excellent wet and dry performance and a smooth quiet ride, rates 4.7 out of 5 overall by AutoSquad customers, and the best part is it’s designed and manufactured in the USA!
The Goodyear Eagle GT is designed for high performance and speed. It comes with a 50,000 mile tread life warranty and our customers rate it 4.5 out of 5. If you like the performance of a higher tier tire, but don’t want to pay for an arm and a leg, this tire is for you. It’s priced attractively and that makes it a very viable option for most of today’s drivers.
If you liked the Michelin Latitude Tour HP, and want to stay with Michelin tires, then the Michelin Primacy MXV4 is the tire for you! Its 60,000 mile warranty provides more tread life than the OEM Latitude Tour HP, and actually rates better in terms of traction, handling, and noise. Our customers rate it 4.5 out of 5 overall, and is consistently rated by Consumer Reports as being at the top of its class. The MXV4 is accompanied by the Michelin Promise Plan, which provides peace of mind that you are getting an extremely well made tire.
