I just have to say that the General Altimax RT43 new and at 6/32nd is better than the all weather tires with a 65k to 75k warranty, not to mention they soften a harsh ride also.

For me "Michelin CrossClimate+" is the best option.

Not just you. TireRack (subjective) and ConsumerReports (objective) both agree.

I have not driven anything with the crossclimate, but I did have cars that went through winter with the RT43 (OK), and the sumitomo HTR A/S(better), but better than both those was the vredestein quatrac pro.

 

None of these were better in winter than the cheapest snow tires however...

General Altimax RT43 is certainly a good choice for all season tires.

Personally I only run dedicated  Snow tires. There is No comparison to the grip levels.  But I do live in Northern Westcher County NY and the Taconic Parkway is very hilly and often unplowed at nights.

 

I just got a new Kona so with only 4K miles on the car the rears are ok. So I got 2 Falken WinterPeak F Ice for the fronts.

 

Next winter, I'll put those on the back and get two new ones for the front.
