Do you want them for "all seasons" or as winter tires? I'd start at the tire rack and do some reading.

Got a set of bridgestone RE960AS pole positions and am happy with them. They're fine in light snow and rain. A little quieter and smoother than my Dunlop summer tires too.

IDK if these would fit your car but I run Potenza G009's but I think they are discontinued. However, I will need to tire shop soon and have started my research. I agree with TSYSTI I will probably get the 960s next since the reviews are good.

Good luck,
Steve

i have been running the kuhmo ecsta asx. they are pretty good for an all season in the dry. they handle well in the wet. they due suffer a little bit in the snow. part of this is the fact that they are all seasons and part of it is the fact that they are more dry performance oriented. i don't mind that my car squirms a little bit on them sometimes. i go to school in Rochester, NY (lots of snow) and find these to be able to handle it. the pole positions are better but more expensive. the kumho's are a good alternative if you are a tight on cash.

out of curiosity, why all seasons? i have them because i was in a bind and could not afford to buy snows and then in a few months buy summers.

I assume you want to leave one set of tires on year round since you are asking about all season tires. If that is the case look at the Nokian WR G2.
They carry the severe snow service label (snowflake in a mountain) and will not prematurely wear out using them during the summer. Just put them on my 08 STI in 245-40-18 size since I ski alot in the winter. I had Nokian WRs on my last two cars and the mileage (wear) I got out of them was phenomenol. Keep them properly inflated and you will get easily 50K miles.
While the G2 is certainly not an ultra high performance summer tire, it seems to be more responsive than the regular WR.

Michelin Pilot Sport +'s M/S all season. Bit pricey though. About 275 a copy. Z rated + 45,000mile warranty or 6 years whatever first. I had the Pilot M/S all seasons on my '03 WRX phenominal traction mud, snow, ice, rain, you name it. Cannot say enough good things about these tires. Differnce between Pilot and Pilot +'s is the tread wear warranty. $269.99 at Costco includes mount, balance, and road hazard. Discount Tire will match Costco near me.
