I have a Sonata sport tech and at 46,000 kilometers the tires seem to be done (My honda CRV tires went 100,000 kilometers). So just wondering what the best all season would be for these. Not worried as much about price. Would like something with decent tread life, good wet performance and as decent a snow performance as possible. Yes I know I should be putting snows on and I plan to for next winter.

Ive had great experience with
1. Continental Control Contact Sport A/S
2. Pirelli P Zero Nero GT
3. Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 Plus

I got the best mileage out of the Continental on my Infiniti G37 almost 50,000 miles, but I liked the Pirelli ,they were quiet, good handling had them on a 2012 MBZ C250 had about 20,000 miles on them when I got rid of the car but they still looked good.

Even though my last several sets of tires weren't Michelins, I'd say that Michelin is the best all-around no-season tire. Skip their entry level tires.

I am currently trying General, Cooper, Bridgestone, and Goodyear tires. Some other tires that left me wondering were Continental and Pirelli. Needless to say, if any of the tires wear out again, will go back to some Michelins or Bridgestones. Won't bother with generics, lesser priced, or overhyped brands that have always given me issues over the years.

Most online reviews(ers) don't have a clue.

What size?

When you say "done". Do you mean treadlife is almost gone? Are they kuhmos?

Mine still look ok with 43000 km . Although I run winyer tires 3 months of the year .

Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 Plus, on my second set on the '14 Elantra GT

Continental Extreme Contact DWS06, had the earlier version of this tire (Extreme Contact DWS) on a 2010 Touring and one of the best rain tires. Ever. Also one of the weirdest tread patterns, but it really works.

I think the might be Kuhmos. There isn't a lot of tread left. It doesn't look too bad but the slipping around these things do in the snow is the worst I've ever had in a tire. I had bald tires on my 2007 Monte Carlo that were better than these.

I just put a set of Michelin Premier LTX on my wifes Honda CRV. So far they seem pretty good in the snow and are supposed to have great wet performance.
They weren't my first choice but because the rim sizes are 18" my choices were limited.
I'll look in to these Premier A/S.

The premiers are their top tier touring tire, can't go wrong if you're willing to pony up the money.

I also have a 2014 Santa Fe Sport (only 40K but the tires would not last the winter) and I got the bit more expensive Michelin tires. Better ride and stability, don't wander like it did. Costco had a sale on them, plus tire and tread warranty, install and they also replaced the TPMS seals ($12 more). Now if the TPMS would need replacing, they would only charge for the TMPS (some $40 from them), whole thing was $950. Forget the dealer price and they beat out others due to the forever balancing, tire rotation and warranty they offer. My tires are larger then a Sonata, so a bit more $$.

I just got a quote from the Hyundai dealer for the Premier A/S and its a bit cheaper than the the Premier LTX I put on my wifes CRV. Not by much and maybe its because hers are R18's whereas my sonata is R17's.
Is there and difference between the Premier LTX and the Premier A/S or is it essentially the same thing?

LTX is usually their light truck designation for tires, which also covers most suv sizes as well. So probably only difference is the ltx is a higher load limit or heavier constructed tire.

That makes sense as those tires were for my wifes CRV.

I am on my second set of Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 Plus. The first set erased in 22K miles, but it seems there was a compound issue and Michelin warrantied them without question. Tire dealer tells me that this second set should do better.

Really good all season tire. The only one I have had that handled rain better was the Continental Extreme Contact DWS 06. Scary how those things would stick on wet pavement. Better than many would do on dry!

Glad to know Michelin stands by their product. I have a few friends that work for them up in South Carolina... I picked up a set of 245/45/18 Pilot Sport A/S 3+'s the other week and am planning to get them installed this coming Friday - the stock Khumo Solus XC's are just about to the wear bars now with 45k miles on them.
