What's the best all-season tire around??? I thought I was geting rims but it doesn't look like it'll be happening any time soon so for now I need a very good handling all-season tire.

I was thinking about the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S but they're kinda pricey. Anything out there with Pilot Sport A/S's capabilities but a little cheaper?

I'm hearing good things about the Dunlop SP Sport A2's... Any comments?

i never bought an all-season tire for my TL, but i can tell you that the Dunlops are awesome as an all-season tire.

Bridgestone RE950
Dunlop SP5000

Never tried the RE950 though.

I have A2's on a Volvo 850. They are better than stock but definitely not better than Sp5000 (Z-rated)

I recently got the Bridgestone RE950's for my 2000 TL with stock 16" rims....these tires are great! They handle so much better than stock....dry and wet performance is great....snow performance is good for such an aggressive tire....great tread pattern too! Pretty reasonably priced as well!

I dont know... a lot of the customer reviews say those tires suck in the snow... any experiences with Continental? Their new ContiExtremeContact got very good customer reviews for dry/wet/snow performance.

Pretty decent tread design... and they have a 30 day test drive... but are they, overall, shitty tires?

I highly recommend the Nitto Motivo tires. Got mine from 4wheelonline. It got me through tough roads and unpredictable weather conditions.

My vote goes to Michelin Defender LTX, it has been my favorite all-season tires for years now. The great traction that it provides on snow and the wet road is beyond what I have expected. The price is definitely worth it for its quality and tread life.
