I can vouch for both the SP5000 and the Extreme Contact, and I have heard good things about the Nero.
Pretty much anything that's round and black is better than the RE92's

Toyo Proxes4

Maybe you should have asked: Is there a WORSE performing (sic) all season tire than the potenza re 92's?. The list would have been shorter.

I jkust had a stroke from reading this. Avid H4's Sumotomo HTR's, PNero's. RE910/930/950.

RE92s have earned the nickname of "bridgerocks". u'll enjoy any other tyre.

We'll see how the HTR+'s in 17" form suit me for winter. They'll be arriving soon.

Oh boy...somebody stop me...

Let me just add (with great restraint), Michelin MXV+ Fairly harmless, but a good substitue. Much better in the snow too. For a better snow performer check out Nokian WR.
