Below is our top 5 of the best all-season tires, created especially for you!
Just like last year, the Defender by Michelin earns the first position of our all-season touring tires top 5. This upgraded Defender features the H speed rating, which increases its market coverage. With its improved longevity and 130,000 km warranty, the Defender T+H is an impressive tire. Using the Comfort ControlTM technology which minimizes noise on the road, the tire offers outstanding comfort and a quiet ride. Designed for coupes, sedans, minivans and family sedans, the Defender T+H is equipped with the IntelliSipeTM technology which delivers remarkable handling, as well as great traction on wet and dry pavement. All things considered, the all-new Defender T+H fully deserves its first place in our top 5, whether it's for its durability or the money it'll make you save on fuel!
Although it is not as confortable as the Defender T+H, the Ecopia E422 by Bridgestone is an ideal choice for those looking to save on fuel and reduce their environmental footprint. With its low rolling resistance, this Bridgestone's tire achieves the same mileage than its competitors with less fuel. In dry or wet conditions, the Ecopia EP422 offers great handling and traction similar to the Defender's. Moreover, the redesigned tread pattern ensures optimal contact with the road, enhancing performance on wet pavement. If the previous version's longevity was its biggest issue, the current version was significantly improved. Ultimately, the Ecopia EP422 is best suited for those who want to save money without compromising their security.
Resulting from Toyo's latest technology, the Versado Noir was designed to compete with the tires ranked first and second in our top 5. This versatile tire offers excellent grip and great cornering stability. Furthermore, with its silica-enhanced rubber compound, the Versado Noir provides improved traction on wet pavement as well as remarkable fuel efficiency. All in all, this tire will satisfy those who are looking for comfort, durability and confident handling.
The Avid Ascend is the first touring tire to feature the Orange Oil technology. This avant-garde technology provides optimal balance between longevity, fuel efficiency and handling. Even though the Avid Ascend is Yokohama's tire with the longest tread life, it's not as durable as the Defender. Still, the Avid Ascend offers great road handling and excellent value for money.
Especially developed for sedans and small SUVs, Falken's all-new Sincera SN250 is characterized by its high level of comfort. With its numerous technological features, the tire delivers performance similar to the Defender's, although it does not offer the same durability. Nevertheless, the Sincera SN250 is an excellent choice for those with a tighter budget.
