I need all season my main thing is I need something good in rain and snow due to my job as we are mandatory staff. I'm looking for a speed rating of V or better. Also a performance tire.
With most all-season tires, you are leaning towards one or the other. If you get more summer performance, be prepared to get stuck in snow; if you get better winter traction, you have less fun in summer. Having 2 sets of tires is the only way to have fun in summer and good traction in winter.
From my experience, the all-season/all-weather tires with more winter traction emphasis suck at summer traction. When I got my RX-8, it came with a set of Michelin all-season with a good amount of tread that's good to use in winter, with the little snow mountain symbol. It had terrible traction. It doesn't take much to spin the rear tires when I make turns in 1st gear, it's embarrassing as hell. The parts guy at the Honda dealership, who owns an S2000, suggested a set of Falken 453 summer tires. They are amazing and grab the road really well. Very happy with them.
If you want more winter traction, you want to look for all-weather
tires. One tire I can recommend is the Nokian WRG3 all-weather tires, which DerekWildstar
recommended to me. General reviews are also pretty good. When it snowed in Victoria, the car plowed through snow quite effortlessly. The only time it got stuck was when I was trying to go up a deep slope with some nasty sludge, but then again, I doubt anything without studs would make it. Summer traction is alright, but not the best you can get like I said above.
Some high-performance all-season tires are only marketed as all-season. Driving them in a snowy/rainy winter is a recipe for a disaster. If you live in Texas(like JBrian), then it's an all-season tire.
