Some all-season tires that receive good reviews from critics are the Michelin Primacy MXV4, the Pirelli Cinturato P7, the Continental PureContact and the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season. These tires generally start around $110 a piece and range all the way up to $170, as of 2015. Although they are usually not as durable, some tires under $100, such as the Kumho Ecsta PA31, also deliver exceptional year-round performance, according to ConsumerSearch.
Most passenger cars do well with grand touring tires, like those from Michelin, which offer good handling and traction, along with a smooth and quiet ride.
High performance Pirelli Cinturato tires and Continental PureContacts offer superior handling capacities. Pirelli tires excel in speed and traction, especially in the rain. Continental PureContacts give good traction on slick surfaces.
Goodyear tires provide exceptional handling on wet and dry surfaces but are not the best tires for winter driving, states ConsumerSearch. Lastly, Kumho tires stand out for their handling, long-lasting treads and smooth, comfortable ride.
