Default Need recommendation for performance all season tires rated for mud and snow

I'm looking for a performance all season tire that I can also take up to light snow. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I drive 90% in dry and light rainy conditions; however, I plan to take my car up to the places like Lake Tahoe and Yosemite where it does snow.

Depends upon your budget and your how much dry performance vs snow performance you want.... I live in MA where we have mild to moderate winters and I know people that run Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ all year and don't seem to have problems. That would be the more dry/rain oriented option.

I personally have used the Nokian WRG3 all year long and found it excelled in snow and rain. I avoided pushing hard in summer to preserve tire life. That would the more snow/rain option, that tire even has the three peek snow tire symbol.

Of course, if you have the budget, the right thing to do is get separate summer and winter tires.

I recently put the BFG Comp-2 A/S tire on my daily driver (Nissan Sentra) and have found them to work just fine for light snow. Dry and wet performance is good. Tread life is good so far.

I use the Pilot Sport AS 3's for my "summer" tires. They work great in the cold & wet.

I swapped my winters out a month to early one spring and ended up having to drive 70 miles to work, three weekends in a row, in full on Colorado mountain winter storms.

If you drive them(in snow) like all seasons, meaning slow everything down and drive cautiously, they work just fine.

highly recommended. I will be buying another set once my current ones are worn out.
