Orbiter:why you said so? is that really bad?
Actually,I'm using the toyo RA1 tires, but it's almost gone, and the winter is coming. therefore, I need a set of new tires(all season) for the winter ASAP.
Do you know which one is good?

Toyo RA1 is nice...even better than T1S but they worn out too fast...so that's why i got the T1S...and it's way better on wet too...

if u want maybe try out the SP5000 or AVID H4...i am using the H4 now for winter...and they are oki...can still have certain traction on dry...no chance to try wet yet...but my friend's Civic w/ engine swap the H4 sounds crappy even for winter too...

yeah...T1S is no good for snow...

well...personally i think there is no good "all season tires"...the AVS-S4 works better than the AVID H4...but it's more like high performance all season...i am not sure how good the low profile will work but i put those onto my friend's 93 Camry V6 (215 60/15) and they are alright...fast turn still sqeak but it's under control (still have pretty good traction)...
so i think probably u can get the H4 for this winter and get T1S for next summer (T1S more long lasting...i have 9000kms on it and t hey are still like brand new)...

and don't forget the ground clearance for the Camry...and the soft suspension it has...
that makes tire perform worse (for hard cornering)...

There is no perfect "all season tires"...I would say any "Z" rated high performance all season tire will not grip well in sonw. I have experience with AVS-S4, not bad in dry/wet but in snow it's worse than RE92. Winter tire is still the the best choice. Vancouver has less snow than Tornoto, you may consider "T" or "V" rated high performance snow tires, they have less grip in snow than regular "Q" rated snow tire, but will be a better choice than all-season.

oh altibaby...what size u got the S4?
the 215 60/15 is V rated yet we never try that on snow yet...

the SP5000 i am not sure how good it is...
but i was being told that if u use performance tires on snow/very cold road surface...the compound will be changed and it won't perform as good as before...
