Upgrading or Replacing your Toyota Prius Tires? Here are some Tips for You

Cars are like our babies, we always want to make sure they are clean and definitely well from front to back, inside and out. And one of the most important part we always check is the tires, of course aside from the engine. I’m sure it’s hard to choose from all the brands and types of tires in the market right now. So, finding the best tires for Toyota Prius can really take some time and effort. Well, you’re lucky to have me to lessen your time on researching and finding the best one for your Prius.

This are the types of tires you can choose from:

  1. Michelin Energy Saver A/S All-Season Radial Tire – P205

I’ll now introduce you to my all-time favorite, the Michelin Energy Saver A/S All-Season Radial Tire – P205. You’ll be happy to know that with this tire, you can actually save your engine’s energy making it eat less fuel because it’s low rolling resistance. Plus, it doesn’t make noise while you’re driving and works on all seasons but still be careful when its winter season. Moreover, its smooth when you drive and you won’t feel the bumps on the road that much, just don’t take it on a very rocky road. Over all, this tire is the best I’ve used so far from the energy saver to the good contact with the brakes and you can still drive on heavy rains.

  1. Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Touring Radial Tire – 215

My next favorite is the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Touring Radial Tire – 215 that I have used for years before changing to the Michelin. I was surprised the first time I got it because it has a high mpg which I think is perfect for a tire to have. By using it more and more I feel relaxed driving since the tires are quiet even on a hot road and even though It’s raining you won’t feel the tire sliding that’s why it’s really safe. I even tried it when snow came and it’s awesome since I can feel the grip because of the grooves in the middle of the tires that helps the tire’s traction. I can really say this is great deal for your Prius even though it doesn’t help with the fuel, but still it’s great.


Both tires can be mostly used on all seasons and really has their own features that stand out. The Michelin is a bit more expensive than the Pirelli but it’s worth it since I’ll be able to use it for quite some time and its energy saver, so I’ll be able to save fuel. If you’re torn what to choose, you don’t have to worry since it’s actually a win-win situation on whatever you choose because they are both high quality tires. It just really depends on you, on what you would like more for your tire to have, energy saver or high mpg? Well, I think that’s all I have for you right now and if you would like to share your insights or feedback just let me know so we can share it as well.
