Full Answer

The Continental ContiProContact is considered the best all-season tire available in all respects except its price, which is higher than most competitors' offerings. However, this tire's handling, ride comfort and level of noise control are far ahead of almost every other tire on the market. Manufacturer Continental backs the ContiProContact tire with an industry-leading warranty. The ContiProContact also features run-flat technology to improve safety.

The Dunlop GranTrek AT20 is a tire specifically suited to the needs of SUVs, crossovers and light trucks, especially when driven in inclement weather. The grip and traction of the AT20 is superior to tires made by other manufacturers in rain and snow, while its ride comfort and handling in dry conditions are not far behind other all-season tires. However, its warranty is not as long as the warranties of some other tires.

The tires produced by General, Goodyear and Hankook are all excellent tires, though not as competent as Continental or Dunlop's offerings. However, they are significantly less expensive, making them good options for drivers with less-demanding commutes and travel plans.
