Best all-season tires - our picks

By: Discount Tire

four all-season tires

In the world of tires, there’s rarely ever a best one tire for any vehicle. Choosing the ideal tire depends greatly upon the season, local weather patterns and climate, along with the age of the vehicle and your own driving habits.

However, despite the wide variety of specialty tires available on the market today, all-season tires are designed with the average driver and the majority of standard road conditions in mind.

All-season tires are the go-anywhere, everyday, tennis shoes of tires.

Designed for versatility and to perform in a variety of wet and light-winter driving conditions, all-season tires are made with the average day-to-day driver in mind. Unless your driving plans include racing, off-roading, or driving frequently through heavy snow or on ice, chances are that all-season tires are right for your needs.

We’ve put together a list of our top-selling all-season tires. This list is based on past-season data, and includes items from some of the best tire brands available in our inventory. Check out our most popular tires, and shop tires made specially to fit your vehicle below:
