Dunlop SP Sport 5000
Michelin Pilot HX MXM4
Falken Ziex ZE-512
Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S

Those are the top rated.

Sorry, but if you're talking best of the best, money no object, I'd go Michelin Pilot Sport A/S or Pirelli P Zero Nero. I had a couple sets of those Michelins. What a tire! Major sticker shock though. I've only heard great things about the Pirellis. They are cheaper but not cheap. I will try them at some point, but will take your Falken experience info in another post under advisement.

Nokian WR "All-Weather" are usually well rated. It does compromise dry performance for winter and wet traction, which suits Toronto winters so I use them strictly between Nov-Apr. Here's a review from Canadian Driver...

I think it really depends on the size, vechicle and your driving habits and what you are looking for.

There is no one best tire out there for everyone.

I wouldn't drive a car with any of those during the winter.

Great tire. Even though its rated as an all season, I use it strictly for winter use.

Actually, some of the tires I posted are even better performers than the Pilot A/S. For example, the Dunlop is quite a bit faster around an auto-x. The Michelin has better winter capabilities though, it's all in what you want from a tire.

As an all-arounder, the highly-praised Pilot A/S really isn't the best.

They're not bad as non-winter tires, but nothing sporty at all. I owned a set of the previous-gen NRW's, and they were not as good in the dry or wet as strictly winter tires.

Wouldn't recommend them.
