If you live in an area where the roads are usually dry during the summer with light dustings of snow throughout the winter, high performance all season tires are probably the best choice for your conditions. These tires blend steady handling with a comfortable ride in dry and wet conditions, with enough light snow traction to get you home. However, keep in mind that all-season tires are a compromise, so you give up handling performance for slightly better winter traction and a longer tread life.
We've chosen the best high performance all-season tires based on their grip and handling in both wet and dry conditions, as well as their tread life and ride comfort. Although prices vary, each of our selections offers good performance for the money.
In the final hours of my day at Nola Motorsports Park I was able to reflect on the testing we had performed. Although we didn’t have a chance to test the new Pilot Sport A/S 3 in the snow, it was very easy to see that every other aspect of this tire has been greatly improved. The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 outperformed all of the tested competitor’s Ultra High Performance All-Season tires in three controlled tests. It also outperformed three of its competitors Ultra High Performance Summer tires in a dry Autocross test. While I can’t say that the new Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 will beat ALL Ultra High Performance Summer tires I can confidently say that Michelin’s new Pilot Sport A/S 3 is no doubt, the best Ultra High Performance All Season tire that Michelin has ever produced. If you are shopping for a new set of Ultra High Performance All Season tires and want a tire that can do it all, I’d highly recommend giving the new Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 a shot.
