Consumer Reports published a first look at two models of "all-weather" tires yesterday.  These tires are supposed to be better than "all season" tires in winter snow and ice, and CR says that promise is born out by the two models they tested:  Toyo Celsius,  and Nokian WR G3.  They out-performed about half the dedicated snow tires, but can be used all year round.  Both are rated "good" in rolling resistance (our OEM Michelin Energy Savers are "excellent"):

Very disappointed in the CU article; just a wrapper on this year's winter tire test with minimal new information. The "all weather" tires are conventional asymmetric all-season tread patterns, optimized for a little more straight line traction. The "test report" is a 2-minute video, and I can't find much by way of reviews on the web for either tire. Really disappointing. 

 

My wife tells me her Michelin CrossClimate+ have been great this winter... they are a real "all weather" tire, if test reports run true. We'll see how long they last, as that's the real question. 

 

Have fun,

Frank

 

PS who publishes a winter tire test article in Spring?
