all season tires???(SER size)

I'm posting this her because its for the SER guys out there that drive the car in the snow. I'm at 20k now and the stockers are at 5 32nds and will need to be replaced at the end of summer. What are you guys using for a ALL season tire??? Looking for a decent milage tire also that doesnt need to be replaced every 20-25k. I live in CT so there is snow. Thanks

all seasons suck, get winter tires for the winter months, and summer tires for the summer. period.

I have to agree with RacinRR.
All seasons are a compromise between summers and winters but don't do great in either situation - they aren't as good as winters and they aren't as good as performance summers. So if you have the $$$, it's best to have two different sets that are the best for both situations.

you made a thread in tire section too, right?

i hate to sound like broken record, but like ^ said, allseasons are no sub for winter tires if youre driving in snow. A/S tires are pretty much just a compromise of overall shitty performance imo. im on LI and I usually run summer tires Apr-Nov then swap to winter wheels. its a good system too b/c it seems like you get more mileage out of both sets =p

Thanks for sticking to the actual thread. I claimed i need a set of ALL SEASON. didnt ask for the dont get them use winter and summer tires. I dont have the money to do that and if i did then this post would have never been here. I would have gotten some blizzaks and some Azenis 615's or BFG's.

the point is im tight on cash and need to start driving the car year round instead of parking it in the garage for the winter.

I do have a set of 17 inch konig's that i could use for winter but i dont have the cash for 8 tires.

with that in mind, for those of you that run ALL SEASON tires on the SER and drive in snow...let me know what you got.

thanks....

Not an SER guy,but i have Bridgestone Potenza G009's All Season and they are awesome in the snow (Lived in NC when i got them and had a bad snow storm a week later) and you can get them in the SER size also. They are also good in the summer too. Had a buddy run Eagle GTS on his SRT-4 and not once did he get stuck in that storm.

There are two responses to this.
1. I live in area that averages 14 feet of snow per year. Having all season tires is just not an option if you want to survive the winter without ending up in a ditch or worse. So number one issue is safety.
2. The second issue of cost is not actually as bad as you think - the cost actually works out to roughly the same as owning all seasons for the same period of time, as someone alluded to above. Having 2 sets of tires means you won't have to change them as often since your only putting half the mileage on each set per year. The only difference is you pay up front - but this is a fair trade-off if you consider the safety issue.

Obviously, it's your choice but you asked for opinions and I'm giving you the reasons why I gave those opinions.

Another option would be to look into Nokian WR+ or GR2 all-weather tires. Basically, the chic at the tire store told me that all-seasons are "summer" tires that you can, but shouldn't, use all year-round. All-weather tires are winter tires that you can leave on year-round.

I have had the WR+ on for 2 1/2 years with no problem in the snow or on ice. And I think I still have 8/32 left. I just put some WR GR2's on the wife's 4 cyl. Accord this fall and she loves them.

Hopefully this year I'll get some UHP or HP all-seasons (since I can get any season at any time in the year), and eventually fade out the WR+'s for some Hakkapaliittas (straight winter).

I feel ya on cost. I dont know how you guys can afford a winter and summer set. With that said I also know that some of you are in MI and Canada and HAVE to get winter sets which in turn require you to get summers for summer. Im ghetto right now running with kumho summers on the rear and bridgstone all season on the fronts. I dont think we saw more than a foot of snow this year in St. Louis. If you're getting anymore than a 1' a year then I would try and fork up for a set of winters.
