Simple Tire Roundup: Top 10 All-Season Tires
There are a lot of choices out there when it comes to all-season tires, so we narrowed it down to ten for you:
- Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Goodyear dependability and quality in a smooth-riding, comfortable all-season tire. The Assurance ComforTred features a shock-absorbing layer of rubber between the tread and steel belts, with densely-packed tread blocks for traction.
- Goodyear Assurance TripleTred The innovative Assurance TripleTred is designed with three distinct sectors of tread; a Dry Zone with large shoulder blocks, a Water Zone with sculpted Aquachannel grooves to move water from the footprint, and an Ice Zone with a traction-enhancing tread compound of polymers and volcanic sand and glass fibers.
- Michelin Harmony Michelin’s Harmony all-season line is designed with independent tread blocks at the shoulder, intermediate tread ribs and a continuous center rib for quiet ride and traction. The Harmony is designed with Michelin’s Stress Equilibrium Casing; a polyester cord body and twin steel belts for road manners, long tread wear and stable handling.
- Michelin HydroEdge The HydroEdge from Michelin uses Michelin’s Green-X tread compound for low rolling resistance, with dual circumferential center grooves and HydroChute tread design to channel water away from the tire footprint on wet pavement.
- General G-MAX AS-03 General’s G-MAX AS-03 uses twin steel belts and a spiral-wound polyamide on top of polyester body plies, for great handling and steering response. The G-MAX AS-03 also features a high void-to-tread ratio and V-shaped sweeping grooves in the tread pattern for wet traction.
- Kumho Ecsta 4X The Ecsta 4X is designed with Kumho’s silica-infused tread formulation, with an asymmetric tread design, large outboard shoulders and intermediate tread blocks. Four circumferential grooves and multiple lateral grooves improve wet traction and resistance to hydroplaning, with sipes to promote snow traction.
- Goodyear Eagle F1 The Eagle F1 is one of our favorite all-season tires, with a specialized tread compound and asymmetric tread design with dry and all-season sectors. The tire’s shoulders and outboard tread are the Dry Handling Zone, with an inboard All-Season Zone, sipes and microgrooves for rain and snow.
- Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position The Potenza RE970AS Pole Position is a true performance tire for all-season driving. The Potenza RE970AS features an all-season rubber compound with a directional tread design, notched shoulders and stable tread blocks. A series of lateral and circumferential grooves move water away from the contact patch in wet weather.
- Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All the best features of the Goodyear Eagle F1 line, with an asymmetric tread pattern and true high-performance ride and handling in an all-season tire.
- Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 The Pilot Sport A/S 3 uses an enhanced silica tread formulation and asymmetric tread pattern, with variable thickness sipes for a truly high-performance tire. Seriously…the Pilot Sport A/S 3 offers the sort of performance you’d expect in a summer tire, except it performs that well year-round.
