Top 10 Winter Tires for SUVs and Small Pickup Trucks 2019-2020

Our Experts - Your Choice

Every year, manufacturers bring new products to the market, and we know that choosing the best winter tires for your needs is not an easy thing. That’s why PMCtire experts analyzed this year again hundreds of products and selected the best ten winter tires for your SUV or small pickup truck.

To help you make the best possible decision for you and your family and simplify your search, we focused mainly on snow and ice traction as well as durability/treadwear. Your location in Canada (Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, Montreal, Ottawa, Fredericton, …), your budget, your driving style, etc. will all influence which of these tires will be best for you.

Your type of vehicle, the quality-price ratio you’re looking for, the performance you want (on ice, snow or slush), and how you use it are just some of the criteria you’ll need to keep in mind.

To help you choose, we organized our ten best winter tires by new products, best sellers and safe bets all in alphabetical order. Every tire model is listed with its key features and starting price for a 225/65R17 or a 255/55R18 when 17-inch dimension is not available.
