I for one like the factory wheels, and will probably swap the tires between all-season/summer tires and winter tires. I will probably need all-season/summer by the end of summer, and then also purchase winter.

That being said, I like the ride I am getting from the factory tires, so I don't want to venture too far away from what I've got, but was wondering if anyone found a specific all-season tire they absolutely love, and why.

Also need winter tire suggestions.

Thanks!

Conti DWS for the all seasons and then NT05s for the summer. DWS do great in the snow rain and dry just do a search and you will see. The NT05s are great for summer but have a very soft tread so you wont get many miles out of them. I went with 265/35/18s(stock 18s) all around on the NT05s so I could rotate them if need be. Have 245-45-18s with the DWS.

I bought the cheapest winter tire I could find. Firestone Winterforce tires for my 17" winter wheels were only $99 each. While they are awesome in the snow and ice (make the car tank-like), they leave a lot to be desired on dry roads. Not a performance tire whatsoever. But I was on a budget when I bought my winter setup and they have performed very well for the 3 winters I've had them. Worth the money, but you're missing out on dry road performance.

Best All Season Tires in my opinion are: Conti DWS, Michelin Pilot A/$, General GMax AS-03.

Best Winter: Bridgeston Blizzak, Dunlop Winter Sport

My opinions.
