Honda Ridgeline Tires: Sizes, All-Season and Winter Tires
The lifespan of your Honda Ridgeline tires will vary depending on how you drive and whether you are driving on summer, all-season, or winter tires, according to Kicking Tires. Driving on under-inflated tires as well as driving with your Ridgeline out of alignment will shorten the tires’ lifespan. Kicking Tires estimates the life of a tire to be anywhere between 20,000 and 50,000 miles, however there is no set interval for when your Honda Ridgeline tires will need to be replaced. Check out this list of potential replacement tires for your Honda Ridgeline.
Sizes for Honda Ridgeline Tires
Tire sizes vary between Ridgeline trim levels and Honda advises sticking to the Ridgeline’s original tire size. “Honda vehicles meet all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards when they are originally distributed, and modification could affect the safety and/or operation of the vehicle, as well as remove it from compliance with specifications and standards mandated by the Federal Government,” according to Honda.

Honda Ridgeline Tires
The original equipment tires that Honda uses can come from any of eight dealers. These dealers include: Continental, Firestone, General Tire, Bridgestone, Yokohama, Goodyear, Dunlop, or Michelin.
- Michelin’s LTX M/S tire may be the tires that your Ridgeline came equipped with. This tire has straight sipes that help with traction in wet and dry conditions. The tire was designed to handle towing capacity up to 13,500 pounds.
- The Goodyear Wrangler SR-A tire provides enhanced traction with a quiet ride. The tire’s zigzag pattern and wide circumferential grooves improve traction in wet conditions. TredLock microgrooves improve cornering grip.
- The Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia tire improves fuel efficiency and offers a quiet, comfortable ride. The tire has a fuel saver sidewall compound that helps to lower rolling resistance. Continuous ribs improve traction and circumferential grooves channel water away from the tire’s tread.
- General Tire’s Grabber MT tire has an open pattern design that delivers performance for off-road driving.
- Firestone’s Destination LE2 tire offers a quiet ride. Circumferential grooves and zigzag sipes help in wet conditions. Performance in dry conditions is optimized with continuous closed shoulder blocks. This tire fits Ridgeline’s with 17-inch rims, which is the RT and RTS models.
- The Dunlop Signature CS tire offers a smooth, quiet ride thanks to a Multi-Pitch Tread design and Jointless Band technology. Evaqua Grooves help direct water away from the tire’s tread.
- The Yokohama YK-HTX tire has triple 3-D sipes that promote traction in wet conditions. Adaptive shoulder blocks reduce road noise and optimized sidewall construction offers a comfortable ride.
- Continental’s CrossContact LX20 tire enhances fuel efficiency by reducing the tire’s rolling resistance. Sliane helps provide optimum braking in wet conditions. The tires provide a quiet, comfortable ride thanks to continuous ribs and Smooth Response technology.
Even though all-season tires can handle wet conditions, winter tires have better handling and traction on snowy roads. Winter tires also perform better at temperatures below 45 degrees.
- The Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2 tire has a wide tread that helps with acceleration and braking power in snowy conditions. Traction while cornering is also improved with the help of the tire’s tread design. FleX-Ice helps keep the tire flexible in cold temperatures. Cross Z Sipe technology improves the tire’s grip to the road.
- Goodyear’s Ultra Grip Ice WRT tire improves traction on ice and in wet conditions thanks to a directional tread pattern. Cornering stability is enhanced thanks to 3-D TredLock technology. Blades in the center zone of the tire help with stopping and starting power.
- Bridgestone’s Blizzak DM-V1 tire utilizes 3-D sipes that improve traction in snowy conditions. The center multi-Z pattern also improves snow and ice traction while directing water away from the tire’s tread.
- The Firestone Winterforce UV tire has a directional tread pattern that optimizes performance in wet and dry conditions. High-sipe density improves traction in snowy conditions. This tire fits the RT and RTS models, which have 17-inch rims.
- The General Tire Altimax Arctic tire has an integrated, multi-angle 3-D sipe system that maximizes traction. An all-weather dual tread compound keeps the tire flexible in low temperatures. This tire fits the RT and RTS models, which have 17-inch rims.
- Dunlop’s Grandtrek SJ6 tire has zigzag grooves that help with traction and braking in snowy weather. Groove distribution and tread design promote a quiet ride on dry roads. A glass fiber-reinforced tread provides excellent grip on the ice.
- Yokohama’s iceGUARD iG51v tire is made of a high-density, reinforced compound that maximizes the tire’s contact with the road. Interlocking and adaptive 3-D sipes enhance stability and grip on icy roads. A variable angle center rib increases stability on dry roads.
Continental has winter tire options, however they didn’t meet the size specs for Honda Ridgeline tires.
