All-weather meaning wet and dry, but no snow, right? In that case, my vote goes to Bridgestone S-03s or Firestone SZ-50EPs. If you are looking for real all-season tires that will also see snow, Dunlop SP-5000s are VERY popular.

Yep, no snow.... I hear Firestone is having a blow-out sale, anyone know of it (sorry, couldn't resist). I was looking into Mich. Pilots, S-03's, or Dunlops actaully. Gimme some more info.

What you're looking for are called "Summer Tires". "All Seasons" mean you can use them on snow, and all of them (perhaps except the Michelin A/$$$) have worse dry/wet performance than similarly priced summer tires.

Depending on how much you want to spend, and what your need is, you have many popular choices here:

Expensive max performance: Michelin Pilot Sport, Bridgestone S-02/S-03, Yokohama AVS Sport, etc.

Budget max performance: Falken Azenis Sport, Kumho MX.

Also consider: Toyo T1-S, Firestone SZ50 EP, Dunlop 9000.

Then you have a whole bunch of very high performance tires, many of them pretty cheap. Like Yokohama ES100, Bridgestone RE750, or Kumho 712, etc, etc...

This is by no means inclusive... But just a rough guide to get you started.
