Hi guys!

Did a ton of searching and reading reviews on tirerack. I'm looking for an all season tire 235/55/18 that will just be a spring/summer/fall tire. I will be also buying a dedicated winter tire.

So far these are my options:

General AltiMax RT43
Destination LE2
Continental PureContact
Pirelli Scorpion Verde
Yokohama Avid Envigor
My budget is $160ish per tire. Any big differences with Grand Touring, Highway all season, suv/crossover all season category?

I live in a city with very ****ty roads. Pot holes, dips/bumps everywhere in the city. The rav is just city driving, our highways are max 80km/h and 110km/hr.

I'm leaning towards the RT43 because of the price, with the LE 2 a close second.

^^ I know absolutely nothing, about 4 of these tire brands...and that's OK.
- so I will just recommend, what works & just might save you some $$

I have my 3 season tires & best winter tires all figured out IMO.
a) Firestone Destinations Le2, for good weather
c) Arctic Claw made by Cooper, for winter

Currently have 31,xxx miles (= 50,000 Km) on the Le2's, on Toyota alloy rims.
- at a quick glance, tires still look in new condition
- they hold air perfectly
- zero side wall cracking & RAV4 is parked outside
^^ These Firestone tires, came recommended on this RAV forum, many times / priced decent too.
- paid $159 each Canadian dollars, installed & balanced / $635 all 4 plus 13% HSTax

Our v6 Limited came with Michelin snow tires / previous owner paid $1,200 installed, with tax.
- 4th winter they will be worn out / worked great, but way over priced brand
My brothers top mechanic recommended Arctic Claw, he sells a lot of them.
- their cheaper than many brands & wear slow / brother lives in a snow belt, couldn't be happier
