Testing New High Performance All-Season Tires

High Performance All-Season tires provide traction from January to December without compromising ride quality or treadlife, or the sporty handling that high performance tires are known for. Tire Rack recently added a few High Performance All-Season tires to our inventory, so we thought it would be a great time to find out if they've improved upon some of the qualities of our previous favorites in this category.

We put the new Firestone Precision Sport, Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 and Yokohama AVID ENVigor tires up against the Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S, which was a favorite tire the last time we tested High Performance All-Season tires.

Each set of tires was mounted on a 2011 BMW E92 328i coupes that were then driven along a 6.6-mile loop of expressway, state highway and country roads. Though the Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S is still a great tire, our new top choices for High Performance All-Season tires are the Yokohama AVID ENVigor and the Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 because of their excellent combination of wet and dry traction. That's not to say we wouldn't recommend the other tires, though. They all drove quite well. We've posted the full report online. Feel free to shop our entire collection of tires according to your vehicle, perhaps one of the above will fit yours.
