All-season tires are best for Houston roadways, but which brands and models are best for your car or truck?

Consumer Reports found The Michelin Defender is the top one. Great handling and very long tread wear at 93,000 miles.

The Continental True Contact and General Altimax RT43 came in second and third respectively by offering strong, all-weather grip.

The Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus offers 100,000 mile wear protection but came in fourth for their all-weather grip.

You can see more results from the study at Consumer Reports.
