All the reason more to get the summer tires. The 3 seasons are for those not planning on getting winter tires.

Agree.....

If you plan to use it in the snow you need a second set of wheels with snow tires on.....

From my experience, 3 season tires are not great in the summer and not great in the winter, why even bother?

I think you meant 4 season as not being great at anything. I'm trying to figure out what a "3" season tire is?

Tires are typically classed as Summer, Winter and All Season (M+S). Of course there are variations on high performance tires with Dry and Wet but none of that applies to SUV tires, they are all at least dry, wet and cold rated, they just aren't all M+S rated.

Tire rack did a review of Summer, Winter and All Season tires and found, to their surprise, that the Summer tires out performed the All Season tires in the wet. It was expected that the All Season tires would be the best in the wet and fall short in the dry and snow but it turned out the Summer tires were the best in the dry AND wet. Obviously the winter tires were best in the snow and bringing up the rear were the all season tires.

Forget what Jeep wants to call them, the tires available are:

TIRES
Standard
Size and Type: P295/45ZR20
Mfr. and Model: Pirelli Scorpion Verde All-Season Performance (run flat)

Optional
Size and Type: P295/45ZR20
Mfr. and Model: Pirelli P-Zero Three Season (run flat)

Standard are All Season (M+S), Optional are "Summer" tires though they don't have low temp warnings like Max Performance Summer tires. I guess that's the "3rd" season

Re: Snow and wet weather performance

I assumed that 3 seasons are equivalent to all seasons, may be not?

For me in the northeast is summer tires and winter tires on separate rims.....

Does anyone know how a 3 seasons tire differ from an all seasons one?

I think it's the other way around. That's why I was wishing I opted for the "3 season". I plan of getting winter tires on separate rims, and my assumption is that the "3 seasons" tires perform better in non-winter weather.

What is a 3 seasons tire and why would it be better than the summer tires in non-winter months?

Re: Snow and wet weather performance

It's one of the SRT 8 tire options

Optional: P295/45ZR20 Pirelli P-Zero, Three Season (run flat) [895]

My guess is that 3 season tires are summer tires (said differently, non winter tires)...

Re: Snow and wet weather performance

I think you are right, the standard SRT8 tires are:

295/45ZR20 BSW All Season Tires (as per WK2jeeps.com)

Re: Snow and wet weather performance

My bad.
I assumed the standard tires were summer performance tires with optional 3 season (all season) tires.
So what are 3 season tires?

My wifes Lexus hadwhat they called 3 season tires....they are summer tires. No snow or cold weather at all......and they are almost always z rated and affected by cold weather...not only snow. They are best when used in spring, summer an dfall in warmer climates.
