GT Radial Maxtour Tire Review & Rating

The GT Radial Maxtour features a touring all-season design that is built to maximize traction and handling, while also delivering a tread life that exceeds expectations. Ideal for use on coupes, sedans, minivans and smaller SUV’s and crossovers, the Maxtour’s tread pattern is created to provide a quiet, smooth ride while the casing structure increases the durability of the tire.

An all-season tread compound and advanced tread pattern give the Maxtour well-rounded all-weather performance on all types of road surfaces. Rain, sleet and light snow conditions are not an issue as the tires grip the pavement to gain traction and the tread pattern allows for more reliable performance.

GT Radial Maxtour Tire Review

Circumferential grooves are excellent for water evacuation and are deep enough to ensure that water is quickly evacuated from under the tire, which lowers the risk of hydroplaning and adds more confidence when driving in bad conditions.

A big plus on this tire is the lower noise levels due in part to the tread pattern. Not only does the tread perform well and is reliable, but it also provides a smooth, quiet ride without all the annoying road noise so often found in other models.

Inside the tire you find two steel belts that add strength and durability to the tire. A warranty of 80,000 miles is given on the tire’s tread which adds value to the already lower price point. Sizes from 12-17 inches are available.


  • Dry and wet traction
  • Quiet and comfortable ride


  • Winter handling in deep snow and ice
  • Treadlife may not meet expectations for some

Overall Thoughts

For the lower cost of the Maxtour, we feel that performance is very good. We found the tire to deliver good all-weather traction, with the exception of rough winter conditions. It simply lacks deeper snow and ice handling, although this can be said for virtually any all-season tire.

The 80k mile warranty is nice, but we’ve heard some drivers mention that the tire will never see that many miles. To be fair, treadlife is not that bad and for the price it offers good all-around value. An added plus with this model is the availability of 12, 13 and 14 inch sizes.

Overall, this is a middle of the class performing tire that will meet the vast majority of everyday driving needs, while also satisfying those on a tighter budget.
