  • Michelin Premier A/S - This is Michelin's flagship Grand Touring All-Season tire featuring a 60,000-mile treadlife warranty. It offers great wet traction and very good snow traction. The tire features expanding rain grooves so wet traction loss is minimized over the life of the tire.
  • Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season - The tire is offered with a 70,000-mile treadlife warranty and really impresses in the snow while delivering one of the quietest and smoothest rides.
  • General AltiMAX RT43 - The AltiMAX RT43 is proving itself to be the bang-for-the-buck king. It's offered at a great price point and features excellent wet and snow capability. It also comes with a 65,000-mile treadlife warranty.

How can you recommend the Pirelli when your own test shows this tire has a poor handling in the rain ??

Jacques Clermont, every tire choice is some sort of compromise, the Pirelli P7 AS Plus didn’t do as well as the other tires in the test in wet traction but it would still be recommended for what it does best and that is the ride comfort and quiet if that is what someone wants most first. It is still better in wet traction than a lot of tires on the road, we are comparing it with some of the best tires on the market.
