As of 2015, the best all-weather car tires are the Michelin Defender, the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season, the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons and the Yokohama Avid Ascend, according to Consumer Reports. These tires are recommended for their year-round grip, long tread life and smooth ride.
Consumer Reports rates the Michelin Primacy MXV 4 and Continental Pure Contact Tires best for handling and grip, but they have a shorter tread wear. It recommends the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 for sporty cars, when responsive handling and tenacious grip are more desirable than winter traction, which is modest in this type of tire.
For trucks, the best all-season tires are the Michelin Latitude Tour, the Michelin LTX M/S2, the Goodyear Assurance CS TripleTread All-Season, the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus, the Continental CrossContact LX20 EcoPlus and the Cooper Discoverer SRX, says Consumer Reports.
