Very few car owners change their tires more than once a year, so when it comes to making a choice of tires that need to perform across all road conditions, "all-seasons" rubber is clearly the best choice. Each year Gripdetective publishes overall rankings for the best all-season tires based on testing from a variety of sources, and the 2020 analysis has just been released.

Italian-based consumer site GripDetective aggregates information from the numerous magazine and motoring organization tests, which often compare car and motorcycle tires of specific genres. The 2020 results see Goodyear push its way back to the top of the rankings with its Vector 4 Seasons G3 tire taking out top spot.

The podium positions for second and third best tires in the rankings went to Michelin’s Crossclimate + and Hankook’s Kinergy 4S2 H75OA.

No doubt these tires are named differently in different marketplaces, so best consult your local tire store if you’re trying to find the equivalent tire in your particular neck of the woods.

Update (Nov. 30, 2020): The original headline of this article has been changed to reflect the fact that "all weather" and "all season" aren't interchangeable terms when it comes to describing tires. Thanks to those that brought this to our attention.

All season tires are very much the compromise sofa beds are. Not comfortable as a bed and not comfortable as a sofa.

You can't just name a manufacturer. Each tyre is different depending on tread pattern, intended usage, number of plies, type of rubber, additives, etc. One manufacturer can have both great tyres and lousy tyres depending on the model. Also some tyres suit certain cars and not others, depending on suspension rates etc. A list like this is useless.

Interesting article which made me look up the Gripdetective video on Youtube which was really informative about these all-season tyres. I'm running a Jeep Renegade on Michelin CrossClimates and I've been pretty impressed over the last 2 years and glad to see that my own feelings about these tyres were confirmed by the tester.
Well worth watching and obviously much better than a simple list.
