Probably the Firestone or the General with the 3 peak rating. These are all weather, not all (3 season really) tires. The Michelins and the Goodyears are expensive and most of the time my tires dry rot before they wear out. I have a few cars now that I haven't purchased a second set of wheels for so I'd probably go the 3 peak route. Some winters are worse than others but don't have to be out in the elements anymore and it has become a chore lugging mounted tires into the basement. Here I usually switch out the first week of December and last week of March.So, this thread is leading me to ask the question, if you were to choose one tire for conditions from 100 degrees F to 20 below zero, sun, rain, snow, and ice, what would that tire be?
I live Seattle too. Have been running Yokohama Geolandar A/T g015 on my last 3 vehicles and love them.Thats my problem living in Seattle. Daily driving in the winter is almost always rainy and its pretty accepted here that snow tires suck in the rain. Problem is we live in an area where having to cross a mountain pass is pretty normal and we get lots of snow there.
One can avoid chaining up with an awd vehicle and m+s rated tires but I have found m+s tires to be lacking on icy roads which can be present in town and the mountains.
Just ordered some Michelin CrossClimate SUVs 265/60R18 yesterday from Discount Tire. Scheduled to get them installed in two weeks as the store manager said he is having to get them transferred from multiple stores to get a set. Yea supply chain shortages!
