I just have to say that the General Altimax RT43 new and at 6/32nd is better than the all weather tires with a 65k to 75k warranty, not to mention they soften a harsh ride also.

I have a thread that has ben ongoing for a few years and has a fair amount of good info.

Interested to hear where you land.

For me "Michelin CrossClimate+" is the best option.

Not just you. TireRack (subjective) and ConsumerReports (objective) both agree.

I have not driven anything with the crossclimate, but I did have cars that went through winter with the RT43 (OK), and the sumitomo HTR A/S(better), but better than both those was the vredestein quatrac pro.


None of these were better in winter than the cheapest snow tires however...

General Altimax RT43 is certainly a good choice for all season tires.

Personally I only run dedicated  Snow tires. There is No comparison to the grip levels.  But I do live in Northern Westcher County NY and the Taconic Parkway is very hilly and often unplowed at nights.


I just got a new Kona so with only 4K miles on the car the rears are ok. So I got 2 Falken WinterPeak F Ice for the fronts.


Next winter, I'll put those on the back and get two new ones for the front.

Nokian probably make the best all weather tyres.  Their old WR series were great.
