I have 2001 Corolla with really poor, slippy factory Michelin MX-4s . I find the car does
not handle well, the car slides and skids easily in wet weather. In the
snow, the traction is poor. I want an excellent all season tire which will have
good traction in wet weather and in snowy weather (Toronto, Canada). Can anybody suggest anything? Thanks!!!

Look at the Dunlop SP Sport A2 for a decent performance tire that has been getting good reports from customers for traction in the snow too. Look them up at tirerack.com under customer survey results. They replaced another tire that I had because it also had good consumer reviews. They were good tires but only lasted 30,000miles. Hope this helps you out.

Hello, I also live in Toronto area. I recently replaced the set of Michelin MVX4s on my V6 accord with a set of Dunlop SP Sport A2s. So far they have been alot better than the OEM Michelins. The Michelins would howl in the dry, and slip and slide in the wet/snow. As you know, there has not been much snow here but the Dunlops seem to be fine going through the white stuff. The only minor setback is that the Dunlops are slightly louder than the Michelins, but thats a minor tradeoff for safety.
