All weather tires are a median, a balance between various designs that allow usage no matter what the weather is. It is the jack-of-all-trades of tires, able to handle most conditions from dry to wet to snow. Due to these inherent design compromises, specialized tires will perform better than all-weather tires in specific conditions. For example, winter tires will inevitably have better grip and traction than an all season option.
Here are a few all-season tires for you consider.
Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza:
These Bridgestone tires feature their UNI-T technology, which improves their comfort and traction ratings. It uses dual layer treads to combat rubber hardening, which traditionally occurs after extensive usage. This makes these tires useful on wet roads even late in their lifetimes. It has large shoulder blocks which help improves their performance on the highways. Depending on the size of the tire you want, it may cost anything from a hundred and ten dollars to two hundred and seventy dollars.
In addition to performing its stated all season duties admirably, it also handles light snow better than most all-season tires. Many generally consider them better than Michelin MXV4s.
General Grabber HTS:
These all-season tires can handle around two thousand pounds and each weighs around thirty-three pounds. They’re certified for speeds up to a hundred and twenty miles per hour and they come with a Treadlife Warranty of sixty thousand miles. They cost around a hundred dollars each and considering their performance levels, that makes them a real steal.
Continental CrossContact LX:
The Cross Contact LX from Continental Tire uses a Tri-Net silica compound on its treads to improve its performance on both wet and dry roads and pavement. To improve steering response and the comfort of its users it has a notched shoulder. It can cost anything from a hundred dollars to two hundred and nineteen dollars. It comes with a sixty-five thousand mile Treadlife Warranty.
Many of its users agree that while it is useable on deep snow and ice that it is not recommended. However, its stability while taking corners on dry roads and its general traction on wet roads remains admirable. You’re getting exactly what you expect from these tires, although many have reported that they tend to wear out fairly quickly, usually at the twenty-five thousand mile mark.
