Best All Weather Snow Tire

What is the best all weather snow and ice tire for a 2011 jeep patriot north?
Looking for one set of all year tires in Alberta Canada with occasional ice and deep snow 6" to 12"; usually city driving packed snow during the winter; the occasional highway 4 hour drive with ice and packed snow for 3 months of the year; I currently have two sets winter and summer tires 215/65r17s.

Looking at: Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S and the Goodyear Assurance Weatherready which seem to have good reviews.
Thanks.

I'm not sure I'd go with all-season tires in Canada, but that's your call. I like General RT43s. I've only had them in minor snow like 1-2 inches and they were fine. Once winter really happens I switch over to dedicated snow tires.

I would keep my current snows (goodyear Nordic winters on steel rims) if the weather is bad; but being retired I am not driving that much (about 5,000 KMs a year and mainly summer driving), so thought I would try an all weather but good in the winter tire.

That is kinda my way of thinking when I put the RT43s on our Patriot. They are great summer tires and are also competent in the fall and spring when blizzards are unlikely but light snow and ice are real possibilities.

If you don't mind a little noise, the Falken Wildpeak AT3's are really good tires. That's what I put on mine and they have been terrific in the Buffalo winter. Surprisingly, they don't seem to have affected my fuel economy either.

Along with the Cooper you might take a look at the Firestone Destination AT.

I put the Cooper AT3's on this year. Only one snow since then (about 4 inches) they did well. But they were brand new at the time. I have confidence they will be fine for me year round, but I am in Central Virginia. Big snows are uncommon around here.

Toyo Celcius or Nokian WRG4 hands down. My pop uses the Nokian's as a year-round tire in the NY Catskill Mountians. My daughter uses the Toyo's in the Rockies; has to drive the Vail Pass (and other hill & vale roads) daily.
They don't have aggressive trail treads, so if you don't run trails they are excellent for highway or non-paved roads.

Likewise the General RT43s. They're good for non-challenging stuff, but not for deep mud or major snow. I live on a town-maintained dirt road and they're perfect for that. Road gets a little squishy this time of year, but the road agent takes care of anything serious.
