best tires for all year driving ??

I m just looking to change my tires and I'm lost in the choice
What are the best tires for daily driving mainly highway and paved roads, a bit offroad and winter/snow conditions ?
I have today Federal Couragia S+U, they will still last a few miles but.. not for long
I'm thinking about the stock wrangler HP all weather (245 65 R17) or the Cooper discoverer AT3

What are the best or what would you recommend?

The Cooper is OK, but for year around driving that can handle mild snow, rain, and a bit of off-road, it is hard to beat the Michelin M+S. Plus they last forever and are pretty quiet.

Re: best tires for all year driving ??

I have the Cooper AT3s and they do work very well. These are Great for off road and not too noisy on the highway. A set of 4 costs a few hundred less than the Michelin MS all season tires. They are an AT tire, but the ride and handling is still quite good, and much better than the GY Fortera triple treads I had and got rid of they were so harsh, bouncy, and poor in snow. Previous to these I had Dest AT, which were more harsh and worse in snow than AT3's. If you dont do much off roading, Cooper also has M S rated all seasons which are a good bargain. Also, note that Tire rack doesnt rate Coopers since they do not sell them.

Re: best tires for all year driving ??

I bought the Firestone Destination LE/2 All Season tires and they are great for summer and winter here in Canada, cost around $130-170 each and are one of the highest rated on tirerack.com for every season. I drive it on 10-20 cm of snow and never slip.

Re: best tires for all year driving ??

I've been very impressed with the goodyear adventure ATs. I had the silent armors for close to 85,000 and it was basically the same tire.

I go off road quite a bit, lots of highway...I've never been stuck.

I spent way too much time researching tires the past couple months! I really wanted to buy American made. Its tough to get what I wanted do that. It was intersting to do some investigating into the tire industry. And sad. Our manufacturing base is such a shadow of what it once was. We all need to try and buy American made products. Ask at the parts store for made in the USA.

Went off the rails for a min.

Just got them mounted today. Balanced out with very little weight, look fine, seem to ride and respond nicely. They have a 75,000 mile rating and a H speed rating. All the reviews (there arent many, its a pretty new tire) were positive. Tread looks like it should be good all around tire, ride nice and be quiet. Time will tell.
