    All season tires

    I know all selson tires suck for the snow, but I'm in a dilemma.
    I live in portland Oregon and I'm moving to Florida in December. I don't want to buy snow tires for just a month and try to sell them when I leave. My idea is to buy all seasons so I can use them in florida during the wet season, but I want to know which all season tired can handle a little bit of snow just it case it snows before I leave portland?

    I'm up in Kelso (60 miles north of Portland.. Michelin Pilot Sport As/3+ The PLUS was not made in time for me for my newest set, but they are the only tire I will put on my car. VERY NEARLY as good as Summer Only High Performance tires in the summer/hot weather, with next to no loss of grip in the wet, and acceptable traction in the light snow we usually get around the Pacific Northwest. They would probably work well in the Mid-West kind of snow, but as you know, Northwest snow is different than they have. .. You'll be delighted in Florida, and good to go here.

    YMMV
    My 2¢

    They will be useless in even light snow, but the Nitto Neo Gens are sticky, and good in the wet and dry, and affordable (like less than half the cost of the AS/3+es, depending on where/when you buy them).

    If I had to pick one which could at least get through snow and still be responsive and grippy in the dry, and wet when it's warm, yes, it would be the PS AS/3+ (WHY I ordered the car with the AS/3s on it from the factory instead of the Potenzas ;) ).

    Sorry I went down to 16’s, they were fine last winter in the snow and ride much better than my previous Pilot sport AS which I had on 17’s

    This. I use these on all my passenger vehicles as they handle great in the dry, wet and snow. I've used them in 4" of snow/slush on the roads without any issue. I was even able to get out of my parents .8 mile long driveway with 5 inches on it.

    I'm on my second set of BFGoodrich Comp 2 All Seasons and I love them. They are second to the DWS in the snow just barely but way cheaper and I got around the snow in Denver last season with no issue at all. They have stiffer sidewall and better straight line grip as well which is nice. I want to say they are around $90 in 205/45R16.
