Best all season tires?

Looking to buy new tires within a couple of weeks, the one I have on now are junk and don't get traction in the rain. Don't want to buy snow tires, but need something to get by in the winter, looking for the best all season tires within a reasonable price. What do you guys think about NITTO motivoa? any help will be appreciated.the NITTO

Sorry cant help you out because I never use them nor do I have a bad winter here in Cali. Go to tire rack or easy tire and read their reviews on all season tires.

Yeah I have heard good things about them, I am not sure where you are located but how do they hook and feel in the rain/snow? And I think the eagle GT are being discontinued so I want to find them before there all gone.

i have 255 40r 19 goodyear eagle supercar tires all around and they are good in the dry and wet conditions but idk about snow? as far as all season you should look at the Michelin defenders or a goodyear all season tire. michelin would proably grip the best and last the longest too

I've driven on ice with the Pirelli pzero they held pretty decent. Driven in snow with them also at freeway speeds 65-75mph they did good, passed several other cars that had mixed it up with guard rails and slid off the road.

Since you seem to be one of the only few ones that haven drive on the snow n ice, may have to go with these. Where did you buy them from a site or a store?

Store, discount tire.

Also if you have traction control leave it on, other wise be careful.

I have Continental Extreme Contact DWS. Pushed thru 4-5 inches of fresh snow this am just fine. This afternoon on graded road was very good. A little spinning when taking off but good stability when rolling.
Seemed as good or better than the FWD cars sharing the road. I bought set of 4 from a guy that purchased them from Tire Rack. You can check the reviews.
I will buy them again.

That sounds great, because I live near Boston, MA and some winters we get hit hard here. Who makes the tires? And also how much did you pay?

Continental makes them. Be sure to look at DWS (dry, wet, snow). Tires had 200 miles on them and I got the set for 250.00 mounted on 2010 GT rims. New probably around 150 ea.

^ I agree, I also have continental dws and could not be happier. Tire rack did a test and found out that those were the best all season tires in the snow by a pretty large margin. I have never used them in the snow but if I ever have to, I would say that I would fill somewhat comfortable. They are pretty grippy in the rain, that's all I know.

Next year, probably around tax return time, I plan to get some Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus for my ride. I've had good luck in the past with Michelin, but have never had these tires.

Does anyone have any reviews about the Nitto Motivos Ultra all season? found a brand new set for $500 was wondering if it was worth it and how they hold up in the rain & snow.

I put the Continental Extreme Contact DWS on my 2012 Brembo 5.0 GT Manual 6spd. This is my first winter and these tires with 140 lbs of kitty litter in the trunk did very well in the 6 inch snow we had last weekend. I have 245-45-19s on the Mustang. I start out in 2nd gear and short shift when the roads are snow covered and the car seems very manageable. I will be using these as my winter tires.

SWEET MARY!!!
You must have a lot of cats...

Is it popular with you folks who live in snow country to throw some weight in the back of your cars?
Or do you just plan on getting stuck a lot?

Weight in the back helps the traction. Kitty litter in the trunk or if it snows and you have a pickup just fill the bed up with snow when you shovel out the driveway. Or if it snowed hard enough it'll be full already.

I put Conti DSWs on mine (also used those for the winter on my Focus ST) for the winter months and she has done great in the two snows we've had thus far. I also toss in a 50 pound bag of cat litter and a 50 pound bag of rock salt in the trunk. That way even if I get stuck I can get out.

When I had a pickup truck I used to do exactly what scottydsntknow says - it's awesome!
