I'd like to find one tire that can work the whole year round. mostly we just get wet here in the winter, not much snow, so it feels like snow tires are unnecessary, burn through quick and swapping tires out twice a year is a drag. On occasion we do get ice and nothing short of putting chains on works for that regardless of the tire. If I go up the pass for skiing, it will be chains. So I've decided to order 19" wheels and am looking for a good all-season tire. It's a little tricky figuring out the best tire option for this climate. Like a lot of folks I'm looking at the Lugano turbine wheels, I like the more even pattern vs the Cyclones. I like what I've read about the Pirelli P Zero Nero All Season(Ultra High Performance All-Season), but descriptions from the manufacturer can never be trusted. I realize taste in tires is a very personal thing but if anyone has recommendations or experience to share specific to this climate, it would be much appreciated.
