Question Good all season tires?

Iím finally ready to replace the RE92s and Iím looking for a good year-around tire for Colorado. Something thatís going to give me better dry, wet, and snow handling. I'll be getting a set of autox wheels this winter, so I'm not using them for that. Something for everyday use. Also, what size do you guys recommend for stock rims.

yokohama 420. These tires impress me more everyday! I am running stock size with a little more air. I was running 520's in calif. with a 55 size, and I am very impressed with the 420's! They are lots of fun in the snow

These tires are great in the dry and good on the dirt. Haven't tried them much in the rain (does it ever do that around here?) or the snow. Very hard sidewall but the ride isn't bad. I am usually disappointed in my choice of tires. Not this time.

Falken Azenis!

Actually, I did try them in snow (on Flagstaff drive when that big May snowstorm came through- there was 12" up there). It wasn't quite as terrifying and life-threatening as I thought it would be. I told myself all of the wheelspin was because I was driving a Prodrive WRC car.

I'm thinking either BFG KDWS or Dunlop Supersport A2's.

For race tires, Hoosier if you can afford it or Kumho if you can't. Then again, maybe that money would be better spent on a new torque converter. Just kidding with ya...

Dunlop A2 = Replacement for SP5000's

Also, what you may want to try is going with 205/50/16. Sure, your speedo will be just a bit off, and you will be putting more miles on the car (just a few per thousand), but the better gearing you will like...
