What Are the Top 10 all Season Tires?
Almost every tire on cars today is an all season tire. That said, you may still want to know what the top 10 all season tires are, perhaps because you want new tires or because you live in an area with extreme temperatures but are moving or driving to somewhere more moderate. As such, the top 10 tires available today, according to consumer reports, are:
1. Michelin Defender
2. Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season
3. Pirelli P4 Four Seasons
4. Yokohama Avid Ascend
These four are regular all season tires that are suitable for most cars and most types of drivers.
5. Michelin Primacy MXV4
6. Continental Pure Contact
These two are performance tires. This means that they have better grip and handling than standard all season tires, particularly if you drive on wet or dry roads. However, most models do have a shorter tread wear as a result.
7. Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3
8.Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All Season
9. Hankook Ventus S1 Noble 2
10. Pirelli P Zero Nero All Season
These final four are ultra high performance all season tires. They are generally fitted to sports cars and are designed to be even more tenacious and responsive on both wet and dry surfaces. Of course, this means that their winter traction is slightly less good, but they are a better option than ultra high performance summer tires, which have almost no grip if the weather is cold.
These top 10 tires, however, are designed specifically for cars. If you drive a truck, different tires are needed. The six best all season tires for trucks are listed as:
1. Michelin Latitude Tour
2. Michelin LTX M/S2
3. Goodyear Assurance CS TripleTread All-Season
4. Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus
5. Continental CrossContact LX20 EcoPlus
6. Cooper Discoverer SRX
These tires can be used on a variety of different trucks, but also on larger vehicles such as SUVs and Crossovers. It is very important that you speak with your tire dealer to determine which type of tire is best for your type of vehicle and your personal driving style. It cannot be stressed enough how important tires are for the safety of your vehicle and, therefore also by default, yourself and all the other road users. Do not simply pick something because it looks or sounds “cool”.
