Tire Concerns: all season tires that go in the snow and ice
I am looking for a really well made tire (265/65 R18) that is all seasons and performs well in the snow and ice.
What you are looking for is what all drivers have been dreaming about ever since tires have been invented.
The road and driving conditions in snow and ice are so different from summer driving that no tire manufacturer has yet to come up with a design and material combination that performs well under all conditions, that I am aware of.
Usuallly when you get an all-purpose tire for any use you end up with something that doesn't work well under extreme conditions, and when you have a tire that is made for a certain extreme use, it generally gives up something from the other extreme to make up for that.
If you are content to not expect too much in extreme cold with snow and ice, you may find that by modifying your driving you may get acceptable winter driving from a good all weather tire, or if you are prepared to give up some tire life and put up with extra road noise you may find that a winter tire might serve you OK in the summer where you don't have very extreme heat.
Unless someone has come up with a real tire breakthrough recently, I don't think you're going to get what you want.
