Can second the Goodyear UGIWRT for a good winter tire. Had them on my C63 and was very happy with them.


Great in snow and in the dry. Quite good on ice, but not as good as the Nokians, or X-ices.

Yeah, a highly underrated crescent wrench of a snow tire. Ice is its weak point, but not far behind the leaders. Better than blizzaks with 1 winter on each of them though. They wear so much better than the blizzaks do.

If I didnt offroad so much during the winter in the dry also, Id get the UGIWRT LT for my truck. Im afraid of beating the snot out of them though. Havent seen them in person, not sure how different from the P rated XL version im used to.

My wife wants to buy some good all-seasons and call it a day, maybe a Continental DWS06, as it's a bit of a pita to swap tires twice a year. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for any advice.

I run DWS06 on my WRX in stock size on my winter set which are Prodrive GT1's. I get snowed often but the snow plows do a decent job. Up to 3inches of snow on the ground is no issue on my WRX. Deeper I can still get out, but struggles vs snow tires.

Considering 99% of the winter is drivable for me the all-seasons do just fine and work out better because I have a wider window of when to swap to and from the stock summer tires. Snow tires wear rather quickly when driven in warmer months, I hate the squirm they have.

If I live in the mountains or rural areas where one's kind of left out fending on their own, then snow tires make a lot of sense to get.

Try performance winter tires. You may like them better than all seasons in winter.
And summer tires will be much better in dry and wet (and warm) than all seasons.

But this is a winter tire thread, isn't it? Summer tires will only be better than all season tires at temperatures above about 45*F.

Yes it is, and welcome. Yes, summer tires will be better in the dry and wet and warm than all seasons. Read his first sentence, addressing a 2 set approach with performance winters and summers.

This is the winter tire thread, not the argument thread.
