Best All-Season Tires for Snow Available at Tire Rack

After last year's record snow falls and the difficulties associated with clearing the roads, snow has become a major consideration for those buying tires for northern climates. To help, I have grouped a few All-Season tires that are known to do well in the snow.

Continental Extreme Contact DWS
: This tire currently ranks#1 within the Ultra High Performance All-Season category and also does very well in light snow. Tire Rack was able to do some winter testing on this tire last year. so be sure to check out the test results.

Michelin Primacy MXV4
: This Grand Touring All-Season tire will handle the snow and also offer a smooth, comfortable ride. Check out some of our customer survey feedback on this tire.

Michelin Harmony
: This Passenger All-Season tire is also a strong contender for the best All-Season passenger tire in the snow.  I have driven on these in the snow with no issues at all.

Depending on your driving needs, any of these three tires will work well for your vehicle.  Check today to see which one will work best for you.

I have a Ford FreeStar and want an all season tire that is excellent in snow and ice. Your survey results suggest the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season (235/60R-16). Do you have test results on this tire that would suggest a better all season tire for Michigan's Upper Peninsula?

Have a Subaru Outback, 2010, tirer size 225/60 17. Need a tire that goes really well through snow, can handle ice, and won't cost the national debt...any suggestions ?

In this size I would take a look at the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422. It has been well rated across the board and is available at a decent price point. -Marshall

Last year I purchased a 2012 Hyundai Tuscon Limited tire size 225/55/18 after 15 years as a Subaru owner. I live in the Snowy Wasatch Mtns of Utah but also drive (spirited) monthly to CA and am feeling some buyers remorse! If I have to choose, I would lean towards snow traction over performance but if possible want the best of both worlds! Can you please suggest the best All-Season Tire for this scenario?

Andrea, you should consider a performance winter tire for your driving, given that you combine the potential for serious snow with some spirited driving. Something like these Pirellis:
