Your All Season Tire?! (looking to purchase from tirerack)
 
Was just curious what you fellow Northwesterners are using for an all season tire? I am looking to purchase the tires from tirerack.com before the winter and fall months start to creep up on us.

Any input appreciated!


[cheers]

Not from the NW but still see snow on our front range and I threw these on the Focus and the consensus seems to be these are quite good year round.

if you want a tire that handles good at all do not get those ^^^

i will be running summer tires this winter lol

Been pushing them pretty hard lately and while the grip isn't the same as a summer tire the slide/breakaway is very predictable but the grip is still very good for a good A/S. And they are a comfortable quiet tire around town over rough roads and that was a factor in my choice.

actually those DWS' dont handle that bad at all! For an all weather tire they're really nice. I will most likely be getting some on my stock 16" wheels for when it snows but otherwise i will be running my summer tires year round. If you dont drive like an idiot when its cold out then you will be fine.

not mention those actually look pretty cool as far as tread design goes... though nothing beats a bfg gforce 2 in style.

You have any recommendations for a summer tire?

Quiet in an A/S is very important to me.
