CANSUMER Research Review: What Are The Best All-Season Tires?
Best-all Season Tire Overall — The Continental Truecontact Tour
With remarkably long-lasting tread life, a 6-year warranty, low rolling resistance for better fuel economy, and solid performance in all weather conditions, the Continental TrueContact Tour earned an aggregate rating of 4.5/5, and the title of best all-season tire overall.
Best all-season tire for high performance — the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+
The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ offers premium ride quality, with exceptional smoothness and road noise reduction, confident stability around corners, and short stopping distances on wet or dry surfaces. It costs a little more, ranging from $185-250 per tire, but with an aggregate rating of 4.5/5, you definitely get your money’s worth.
Best all-season tires for light trucks and SUVs — the Michelin LTX M/S 2
If you’re looking for strong, long-lasting, high-traction tires for light trucks and SUVs, the Michelin LTX M/S 2 is CANSUMER’s #1 pick. These tires boast exceptional highway handling, outstanding traction on wet and dry roads, and the ability to handle heavy loads over 3,000 pounds. Although their fuel economy isn’t the best-in-class, their treadlife and ride quality give you great bang for your buck.
Best all-season tires on a budget — the General Tire AltiMAX RT43
While it’s not the most grippy all-season tire option out there, it does the job in most conditions, and the Twin Cushion Silica Tread Compound gives drivers the long-lasting tread life they need to get their money’s worth. These tires also absorb vibrations exceptionally well, making for a very comfortable ride, and at only $90-110 per tire, they’re a real bargain.
Best all-season tires for fuel efficiency — the Michelin Energy Saver A/S
Like any low-rolling resistance tire, the Michelin Energy Saver A/S is made with a hard silica-based rubber compound, which isn’t ideal for traction on wet, cold, or snowy roads, and the treadwear on these tires is just average. But if you want to save money at the pump—and help save the planet while you’re at it—these all-season tires can’t be beat. In fact, Michelin claims that the Energy Saver A/S are 8% more fuel efficient than standard all-season tire options.
