Best All Season Performance Tire for a S550

Anyone swapped out their Performance Pack summer tires out for all season tires? I live in Minnesota and lose a month or more of driving my 17 Mustang GT since these summer tires are pretty worthless even on a clear, warm day if the temp is 40 degrees. Even at 50 degrees those summer tires are questionable.
Looking for a nice performance tire but not a summer tire.

I got a steal on a new set of Uniroyal Tiger Paw Touring A/S All-Season tires, recently. My car's not running yet, and I haven't got them on, but they look great and reviews say they're pretty good. I'm sure looking forward to trying 'em out. It was mighty hard to argue with the price - I got them for only $68/tire

Edit: Aw, crud. Just realized that this thread's not in the 'classic' forums - so these tires aren't too likely to be right for your 2015+ Mustang. They'll be great for my 53+ year old Cougar though.

I smile a lot. It makes people wonder what I'm up to...

Cooper Tires have been surprisingly competitive lately, going up against some big tire makers.

The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ and the Continental Extreme Contact DWS06 are generally considered to be the best of the high performance all seasons.

My wife's Dodge came with Yokohama Avid high performance all seasons and i put the DWS06 on last fall and the improvement in handling, comfort and road noise was amazing.

I had nitto nt555 g2 305/35/19 and those tires will get you killed. They let go where Costco tires half the size hold. So trashed them for bfg gforce comp2. Best tire I have ever run so far

I had the same issue to face this Fall. I went with Continental Extreme 20 and love them.

I went with Sumitomo only because I know that they use to own Dunlop before selling that name brand to Good Year in the 90's and I always ran Dunlop tires. Their pricing is reasonable because they don't advertise like big guys.
