Michelin Pilot 3 A/S is probably the best 3-season all-season you can find. It grips considerably well and you'll never notice that it's an all-season tire from the way it performs and in the dry and wet.

Another Canadian here. I'd suggest the Continental DWS-06, too, it's a high performance all-season tire, and it is LIGHT! The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 does not work in any snow, and I've read that its replacement, the A/S 3+ is not much better. Last October, 85 miles North of Toronto, I was driving in snow, and I've seen snow on the May 24 weekend less than 100 miles North of Toronto.

I've had 3 sets of the older DWS, but there is a car in the family with the DWS-06, and while it has never seen snow, they are good tires. The DWS was the only non-race tire that I have ever driven down to the wear bars, because they still worked well in the wet.

I have to, wore down the previous dws's down to the wear bars into the summer, till I swapped then out for the dws06 version. Each version gets better as I started w/ the Extreme contact's that were directional.....
