Best All-Season Tire

I'm buying new 20" rims for my 2012 laredo. Any thoughts on the best all season tires to put on it?

Greetings,

Good question. It will help if we know your region.

If you check Tirerack survey's they are pretty good. Other tires that are not on the lists to check out is the Nokian WR G3, Cooper Discoverer HT series, Nitto NT421Q and Falken.

Some of these tires are better for winter driving and other wet conditions.

Best for now.

Re: Best All-Season Tire

"Best" is very subjective! It's also affected by geography including seasonal aspects of that geography, how someone drives, etc.

My next tires will most likely be the Nitto NT421Q as their characteristics work for my needs and driving patterns.

Re: Best All-Season Tire

I am loving my Hankook Ventus ST RH06 tires.

Re: Best All-Season Tire

"Best" depends on planned usage. Strictly speaking "All Seasons" are M&S. "All Weather" are more intense 12 month tires with Snowflake/Mountain symbol, but have shorter mileage life expectancy than all seasons.
There is no right answer like, "Do you carry your lunch or walk to school"?
