Value All-Season Car Tire Options

Friday, November 11, 2011 by Alex Mouroulis
Tires in the Standard Touring All-Season category offer lower speed ratings like S (112 mph) and T (118 mph). These tires are known for longer mileage - usually greater than 50,000 miles of service life. They are not an aggressive handling group of tires due to their lower speed rating. However, you'll receive the benefit of a smoother and more comfortable ride.

Take a look at what consumers are saying about their experiences with these Standard Touring All-Season tires, starting with a Pirelli review of the P4 Four Seasons:

"I have waited nearly two years and 47,000 miles to give this review. These are hands down the best overall tires I have ever owned. The mileage speaks for itself, the lack of noise, hum, harmonic sound was as quiet as the day I bought them, and they were near silent on that day. Snow traction was good even last winter here in New England and we had a long hard winter. Unbelievable tire. I have driven over 1 million miles and have owned 24 vehicles, foreign and domestic, had Michelins, other Pirellis, Goodyears, Bridgestone, Goodrich, Toyo, Kumho, Hankook, Brand X's claiming to be just as good as a Michelin and these Pirellis eclipsed all of those to the very end."

"I have put 45,000 miles on this set of tires, and still have almost half the tread left! Ride has been smooth and comfortable since day one. For the money, could not honestly purchase a better set of tires. Will definitely buy again, whenever these finally wear out."
-- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2008 Mitsubishi Galant DE (Yokohama AVID TOURING-S)

"7000 ft in the foothills of the Rockies in Colorado with winter temps sometimes 20 below zero with substantial snow and ice has been a great testing ground. We live 3 miles off of pavement and put on approx. 125 miles a week in these conditions on rock and dirt/mud. Both vehicle and tires have been totally reliable and have never been stuck with them in the AWD even in all wheel lock. Winter is almost here and I'm putting on a new set this week...great tires!!!"
