Looking for your next set of all-season tires can be challenging with so many different options available in today’s market, especially with all the biased tire reviews.

Don’t worry, I have been in the tire industry for over nine years and have seen all the good and bad tires offer. This list of top five best-performance all-season tires has been hand-selected by a true tire expert to save you precious time and make your next tire decision much more straightforward.

I had to pick only five tires out of the thousands available, eliminating high-quality tires like the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric AS, Bridgestone Potenza RE980 AS+, and BFGoodrich G-force Comp 2 A/S Plus. I made these hard decisions, so you don’t have to.

Picking the best tire option out there was no easy task. The Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 was the number one decision for its ability to perform in all weather conditions and value. You are getting an excellent ultra-high performance tire for a fraction of the price of its competitors.

I found the Continental to excel in its ability to maintain extreme traction in wet and snow conditions. When the snow or rain is falling, you won’t have to worry about being unable to run errands.

If you need an all-season tire that handles like a top, look at the Continental ExtremeContact DWS06. It can take a hard turn at twenty-five plus miles per hour. Most all-season performance tires will tend to skip when making abrupt turns. I am talking about when the vehicle will start to chatter sideways.

The Continental will no doubt keep you on course.

This tire almost didn’t make it as number one because of the road noise when worn. However, most all-season tires tend to get noisier as they wear. So, after all my comparisons, I decided to look past this.

Whether you need a tire for your BMW M3, Toyota Corolla S, or any sports car/sedan, this tire will offer you decent tread life while giving you unmatched year-round traction and safe hydroplaning resistance.

Not everyone out there has thousands of dollars to shell out for a set of tires. This is why I went out of my way to provide you with an inexpensive, safe, low-quality tire.

The Westlake SA07 Sport is considered a performance touring tire, and I picked this tire as your budget-friendly option for a few reasons, the biggest one being its affordability.

While surfing through all of the performance all-season options, I found the Westlake to be the most affordable option. Not only was it affordable, but it also came with a treadwear warranty of forty-five thousand miles. Not many cheap tires on the market will back them with a warranty.

Of course, with this tire, you will notice that traction in wet conditions will not be the same as more expensive tires, but it will still provide safe traction on these wet roads. When I say safe traction, you won’t be sliding all over the place in the rain or very light snow.

While this Westlake’s price is attractive, you will notice that it will be relatively loud because of the low-quality rubber compound. I have also received complaints of vibrations at high speeds, which is attributed to low quality as well.

If you’re simply looking for the best price and want the sidewalls to hold up, this tire is for you!

Anytime someone says high-end in the tire world, I automatically go to Michelin tires. They have the highest quality standards I have seen, and there’s a reason why they have the highest tire prices.

The Michelin Pilot Sport All-Season 4 has the newest technology in its construction Michelin has to offer, and you will notice this is in the ride quality. Michelin has a high standard for ride quality because most people who can afford them look for comfort.

This is the quietest on-road tire in the UHP performance all-season category. Using an asymmetric tread design, it can be very difficult to achieve this, but Michelin hit the nail on the head. Asymmetric tread designs tend to be prone to irregular wear patterns due to their non-uniform design.

While offering one of the quietest rides on the market, it will also have exceptional tread life. This tire only comes with a forty-five thousand mile treadwear warranty, don’t let that low number fool you, as they are always known to exceed the expectancy.

This tire could have been number if it wasn’t so expensive since its all-season traction is excellent. However, it isn’t the best available, and you should be getting the best of the best for the price tag that comes with it.

This tire is perfect for anyone who wants a smooth, quiet ride and brand recognition.

When looking for performance all-season tires, it can be challenging to find a tire that has a tread compound that has the daily drivers in mind. Look no further than the Pirelli P-Zero All-Season Plus.

For some of you, daily driving could look like picking up the kids from school or driving to work every day for that nine to five grind. In my experience, daily driving puts the most wear and tear on your tires, which will give you the shortest tread amount of tread life.

Don’t worry. This Pirelli tire is built to last, offering you a fifty-thousand-mile treadwear warranty and achieving this great wear with a stiffer rubber silica compound. While most tires will tend to have a rough ride due to a more rigid tread compound, Pirelli does a great job with the tread design to avoid this.

If another concern of yours is, how will this tire affect your gas mileage?

It won’t. The Pirelli P-Zero All-season Plus has a low rolling resistance to provide you with the most efficient fuel consumption possible.

All great things have their downside, and I want to ensure to fill you in on them. This is a perfect tire for the daily driver; however, I have seen this tire come in with complaints of a loud ride. However, I had the pleasure of testing this tire at a Pirelli ride and learn event in Las Vegas, NV, and I didn’t notice this to be the case.

NOTE: Ride noise can be very subjective. Some consumers may think a tire is noisy, while others say it’s quiet.

I picked this tire for the daily driver because of its ability to last, confident handling, and fuel efficiency.

Do you find yourself constantly on the highway? Whether it’s frequent road trips or a long commute, the Yokohama Advan Sport A/S+ will have you covered.

The Yokohama Advan Sport A/S+ is a well-rounded product that will provide good all-season traction, comfort, and ride noise. I chose this tire because it’s a high-performance touring tire, so for you highway flyers, it will offer the best tread wear for all those miles you will be putting on them.

This Yokohama comes with a fifty-five-thousand-mile treadwear warranty, and I have seen it receive as many as sixty-five thousand miles. While offering long tread life, it also has a ton of siping in the tread blocks, giving you optimal wet and light snow traction.

When you add the siping to this tire’s wide contact patch, it makes hydroplaning very difficult at high speeds.

Another factor I believe to be extremely important is ride noise. No one wants to have a constant drone or hear every crack in the road they roll over. The Yokohama Advan Sport A/S+ has a ride that’s almost as quiet as the Michelin for much less money.

The one nit-picky thing I believe could be better is the handling. While having a smooth ride, the handling seems to not be on par with the rest of the tire. Since the sidewalls have more flex to provide a smooth ride, there is more than an ideal body roll when making tight turns.

It’s a good thing I had to pick the best highway tire for this one because there are no tight turns on highways.

What To Look For When Buying The Best Tires For All-Season Performance Tires?

Trying to find the best tire to fit your needs is difficult, so here are three things to help make it a little easier.

The Tread Pattern

Most all-season performance tires will feature an asymmetric tread pattern. This is for a good reason, as directional tread designs are designed more for winter tires and racing applications. Symmetrical tread designs are made for extended tread life, not high performance.

How Much Siping Is In The Tread

If an all-season tire doesn’t have adequate siping, it will not provide enough snow traction in cold weather. This is why performance summer tires have no additional siping in the tread.

Rebates

All-season performance tires tend to be pricier, so always be on the lookout for a rebate to help with that cost.

How Much Do All-Season Performance Tires Typically Cost?

I have seen it countless times where someone comes in looking for tires and is shocked at how expensive they can be. Here are some price ranges you can expect when looking for your next set of all-season performance tires.

Four New Tires

The price will heavily depend on your size and the quality, but a typical set of tires will cost you between $600 and $1200.

Two New Tires

If you were only looking to replace only two of your tires, you could expect to pay between $300 and $800.

Single Tire

Did you have a blowout and only need one new tire? It will cost you between $100 and $350 to get that replaced.

Are All-Season Performance Tires Worth It?

All-season performance tires can be worth it depending on your primary vehicle use. Obviously, if you plan to take your vehicle off-roading, I would not recommend all-season performance tires. The best application would be for anyone who has a vehicle equipped with a sports suspension and drives like Nascar.

How Long Should Your All-Season Performance Tires Last?

There is quite a wide range of mileage expectancies from these tires. I have seen as many as sixty-thousand miles on the high and twenty-thousand on the low.

If you maintain your tires properly, i.e., rotations every five to eight thousand miles, air pressure checks every month, and proper alignment, you can expect to see around fifty thousand miles.

Does the Year of Your Vehicle Matter When Buying New All-Season Performance Tires?

Absolutely not! These tires would be an excellent choice for any vehicle looking to get better handling and traction, no matter the year.

Anything Else Worth Knowing When Buying All-Season Performance Tires?

I want to tell you the difference between ultra-high performance all-season and high-performance all-seasons.

An ultra-high performance tire will come in higher traction ratings to give the tires better grip, and they will also have a shorter tread life.

High-performance all-seasons have lower traction ratings and are meant for vehicles like the Toyota Camry TRD, a car that will come with a lower profile tire but doesn’t have quite the same performance as a BMW M3.

Frequently Asked Questions
It will be safe in light snow if it is a performance all-season tire. However, if the temperatures drop below forty degrees, the rubber compound will stiffen up and not perform as safely.
Yes, especially if they are summer tires like the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S or Hankook Ventus S1 Evo3. Performance tires come with a higher traction rating; to get this, they have to lower the treadwear rating, giving you a tire that wears faster.
Performance all-season tires come in speed rating H and higher to provide performance at higher speeds. All-season tires will only come in speed ratings lower than H, providing longer tread life.
