Hi everyone,

My 2016 ST is due for a new set of tires. The factory Goodyear summer tires are there last rotation and will have about 22k when they are pulled off. I'm doing research for a good set of all seasons. This is my daily commuter and I drive it for work. I live in the south so there is no snow or ice to speak of. I have fun but mostly sensable driver.

All that being said what would y'all recommend for the stock ST3 wheels?

Hi kage_. I went with these recently for about $670:

235/40ZR-18 Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 XL

I've read positive comments from users on other forums on Conti DWS tires, and Tirerack users rate them a 4 out of 5. So far, I'm very happy with them. I don't drive so aggressively that buying another set of summers made a lot of sense. Plus, we have flip-flopping weather a lot in spring and fall here so all seasons are nice to have during those transition times. I still have a set of wheels with winters mounted but they are over 7 years old--need to inspect them for dry rot but hoping I can use them for the worst of the winter months one more time. If not the Contis should do fine.

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll add it to the list to review. I also ran across General GMAX AS-05's. They are an all season 50k mile tire. Tire rack reviews are good but I can't find anything on the longevity of them.

Michelin AS3+ in 235/45/ZR17 They are just about as sticky as the summer tires. The day I got them it snowed 6". about 2 feet of snow that week. I didn't have a single problem getting around. In the wet they are fantastic. In the dry they are just about as good as the summer tires Pilot Sport 4S 235/40/ZR18
