    3PMSF passenger-car tires:
    Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady
    Hankook Kinergy 4S (Canada only)
    Michelin CrossClimate + (limited sizes available)
    Nokian WRG3
    Toyo Celsius
    Vredestein Quatrac5
    Tire mileage warranties are about wear down to legal limit. Not snow perfomance.

    It doesn't matter what tire it is if you're running it down to that it's going to suck in snow.

    right but i've worn a winter tire down to that in 20k miles, cus it's 100 degrees here in the summer. Interested in the performance of the tires more than general observations on the marketing con here...

    these things are at best unproven so will be sticking w snows and summers, personally. despite living with minimal storage space for things like 4 wheels and tires

    2nd searching for el chupacabra’s thread. Some “all weather” tires have been around for over a decade, so not exactly unproven.

    The main thing to consider when you go smaller is how much clearance you have with the brake housing inside the wheel. Our Alltrack has 17" stock and I got a steal on nice 16" aftermarket rims for Blizzaks. They barely fit over the brakes by a few mm.

    I don't know what your Ford is, but if it is an F-150 definitely check the clearance, especially on the brake lines up front. Your owners manual may even say not to use chains on specific size tires. The main thing is to visually check clearance and make sure they stay snug.
