Thinking of buying used touring tires? Make sure they’re right for you
According to top tire manufacturers, touring tires account for between one-third to a half of the total market for new tires in the United States. But why are they so popular?
In many ways, it's no wonder touring tires sell so well. Combining many of the advantages of passenger tires and performance tires, their versatile qualities ensure a pleasant drive in most road conditions. This makes them a preferred choice among passenger vehicle owners that value comfort for their everyday driving. Many manufacturers, including in the premium segment, use this tire type as the main tires for a number of models.
Utires.com has a wide selection of used touring tires and this type of tire has proven to be one of the most searched for categories among our customers. All the tires listed on our website come quality assured and some of them have only been driven on once.
Touring tires are designed to provide optimal traction and good grip on paved roads, which also helps to significantly save on fuel. They are also engineered to be quiet while providing ample control during cornering and braking in almost all temperatures and conditions.
For many drivers, these qualities top the list of desired characteristics when it comes to choosing a tire. So, how do touring tires manage to combine them all? Let's dig deeper to find out.
Сharacteristics of used touring tires: what makes a tire a good “all-rounder”?
Touring tires have a number of features which add up to make them the tire of choice for many drivers.
Low profile. Enhances the stability and controllability of the vehicle, giving a smoother ride even on uneven paved roads. The low rolling resistance translates to better gas mileage.
Wider tread. As you can imagine, a wider tire maintains a larger contact area on the road surface. This increases vehicle stability, makes cornering easier, and reduces braking distance. In this way, the wide tread of touring tires helps to ensure that passengers have a comfortable ride while drivers get to enjoy responsive handling.
Premium rubber compounds. These increase durability and extend tread life, as well as helping to preserve rigidity in the heat of summer while remaining flexible in winter.
The tread pattern on a touring tire is designed for smooth driving and high directional stability in different weather conditions. Sipes in the center of the tread improve grip on slippery roads and reduce tire wear. Rain grooves ensure good traction on wet roads, removing water from the contact patch and reducing the risk of aquaplaning. Thanks to this design, drivers can safely drive through deep puddles without slowing down.
How do touring tires perform in different weather and road conditions?
While all season touring tires motor along easily on paved roads and can also handle gravel, they are not designed for off-road use.
Regarding weather conditions, you can depend on touring tires to provide all-season performance and responsive handling on both dry and wet paved roads. They can also handle roads that are icy or are covered with a thin layer of snow. Importantly, like other all-season tires, the rubber compound of touring tires is made to handle a wide range of temperatures.
Indeed, most of the new and used touring tires featured in our catalogue can be relied on not to lose traction in light snow and to provide good handling in mild winter conditions.
However, do not expect touring tires to perform well on deep snow or slush. Driving on this type of tire in such conditions will not only result in impaired performance, it is also dangerous for the driver, passengers and everybody else on the road. For states with very snowy winters with temperatures consistently below - 45 °F, you might want to check out our used winter tires instead.
Top 5: UTires customers’ preferred choice for used touring tires
Still unsure whether touring tires or performance tires are the right choice for you? Check out this handy list of comparisons to help you decide.
Touring tires provide better gas mileage compared to performance tires, so using performance or high performance tires tends to be more costly in terms of fuel.
Touring tires cannot match performance tires in terms of active handling. That said, the traction that touring tires provide is more than enough for a quality smooth ride.
Touring tires are superior for all-season driving, including mild winter conditions. Performance tires are mostly designed for driving in summer.
Touring tires allow you to leave paved roads — but don’t try to test them in extreme conditions. By comparison, performance tires are useless off-road and are really only suitable for paved surfaces.
Touring tires are designed for a quiet ride and are typically rated with a speed index of S (112 mph) or T (118 mph). This represents the maximum speed they can handle with a particular load (indicated by a 2-3-digit number next to the letter — the last numerical digits in the sequence on the tire sidewall). Performance tires, on the other hand, can handle much higher speeds: T (118 mph) is generally the minimum speed index for this type of tire.

How do the load capabilities of used touring tires stack up?
The load rating of a tire can be found on the sidewall. This figure represents the maximum load in kilograms that a tire can withstand at the speed indicated by the appropriate index and at a specified air pressure (measured in pound-force per square inch, psi).
You’ll notice that touring tires generally don’t have a very high load index — they mainly fall between 82 and 99. For example, a tire with index 85 can carry 1135 lbs. Therefore, add 4 wheels with an index of 85 together, and together they can handle a load of 4,540 lbs.
If you carry heavy loads in your car or tend to travel with a big family and lots of stuff in the trunk, you might want to take a closer look at the section on highway tires in our catalogue. Tires such as the Hankook Dynapro HT or Firestone Destination A/T have a higher load index than is the norm for touring tires, with the added advantage that they are equipped to handle off-road adventures.
The new generation of touring tires: more power for performance driving
In recent years, top tire manufacturers have started producing “Sport Touring” or “Grand Touring” tires with a speed rating H (130 mph). Very soon, we might even be able to drive on performance touring tires with a speed rating of V (149 mph) or even W (168 mph).
Market experts expect that touring tires will continue to evolve in coming years, still offering the same versatility that is a hallmark of this type of tire, while reaching rising levels of high performance and higher speed ratings. Indeed, this combination of qualities is much sought after by today’s drivers so the market is bound to move in this direction.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a passenger tire and a touring tire?
Touring tires have a lower profile and larger tread, compared with passenger tires. It allows them to provide more comfort while driving, as well as lower noise level and better handling. Also touring tires usually have a longer tread life.
Are touring tires good for winter?
Touring tires are good enough for the mild winter. If you live in the northern states, it is better to choose winter tires for the coldest season.
Are touring tires worth it?
Definitely yes. In terms of economy, touring tires cost a bit more than passenger tires, but their wider tread ensures rolling resistance characteristics, hence better gas mileage. Moreover, thanks to the larger contact patch with a road, they wear slower. So paying more for touring tires, you can save some money later on the fuel economy and longer tread life. At the same time, getting real pleasure from a responsive, quiet, smooth driving.
One more important thing about touring tires — safety. Better handling and “sticky” grip while cornering can save your life in difficult road situations. For sure, touring tires are worth buying.
