the best all weather tires are Nokian WRG3 SUV's. an ice rated all season that are as good as dedicated snows in the winter.

Did you not like what the car came with? I have Michelin Pilot HX MXM4s and will replace them with the same tire when they wear out.
Another tire on my list

Honestly, I thought the stock Michelins on my AWD were crap. Not much grip and they were pretty much worn out completely by 25k miles. I replaced them with a set of Continental DWS06 in 255/50R19. Diameter is within 2 tenths of an inch of the stock tires. They grip way better in the wet and dry. Haven't had them in snow though.

We have a good selection of quality all season tires. Which one is right for you depends on many things such as your driving style and what you are looking for in a tire.

Good evening everyone:
As the owner of a '14 R/T AWD, I am interested in seeing what other AWD owners are replacing their tires with when the factory supplied ones are worn out. My Charger came with the Hankook Optimo H725, and at 31.5K they still have a fair amount of tread left.
My research says that they are rated for an 80K treadlife. I believe that is a bit optimistic.

I have read that the AWD cars have a different offset from the RWD cars. Looking around, it seems that the 235/55/19 tire size is more popular on trucks and SUV's instead of performance sedans. According to Tire Rack, the Hankook is a $180 tire.
I have to wonder why Dodge gave us AWD folks the odd 19" size instead of the more common 20" size of the RWD cars?

In the 1500 miles or so I have put on them, the Hankooks have been decent on dry pavement, but not so much in the wet.
While making a left turn off of an exit ramp onto the main road in the rain under light throttle in 40 degree temps, the rear end started to come around on me. The wipers were on, so AWD was engaged. I was not impressed with that.

The 255/50R19 is nearly the same diameter as stock and gives you more options. I can say that the DWS06s fit perfectly on the AWD and grip very well too.

I will also recommend the Continental DWS, I had to have something that was all weather as well since we get lots of rain, as well as some snow here. These handle excellent in all weather and even light snow. About to replace my current set with the same tires.

I found the stock Pilots (HX MXM4) on my R/T were OK when they were new, but the wet traction totally disappeared at about 14K miles. I certainly would NEVER run them on an SRT!!!

I know someone who has the Hankooks on his AWD SXT and he says they are terrible in the snow! No doubt the DWS 06 is a far better tire!

I can confirm the hankooks are crap in the snow I can't even park on my driveway or the car slides down. Can't believe they would put these on an awd. They don't go they don't stop they don't turn in the snow.

I replaced my Michelin MX4Ms on my AWD when they were worn out with Cooper CS5 Ultra's. I'd recommend them, they were great in the snow, very quiet, only issue was they were wearing much faster than what they were rated for. I put about 18k miles on them and they were under 50% tread life.

I am still running the oem 235/55/19 Hankook H725s at 32.5K. We have had a bunch of rain over the last several weeks here in SW Ohio. Today while running an errand, I had yet another unpleasant experience of oversteer in the rain while making a right turn onto a highway entrance ramp. It was raining, so the wipers, headlights, and AWD were activated. I estimate I was at 25 mph under very little throttle when the rear end started to come around as I turned right onto the on ramp.

Once at home, I measured the remaining tread on the fronts which was between 5 and 6/32nds, and the rears between 6 and 7/32nds.
Tirerack.com says they are 11/32nds when new. Granted, the temps are in the mid 40's today (it was 70+ yesterday) which likely played into it as well.

Given their price ($185 per new), and at least 50% tread left, I am not impressed.

Thoughts?

Those are horrible tires. If they don't work well with AWD they are not worth having. Tires are considered worn when they get down to 3/32". If I had AWD and was getting poor traction like you just reported I would get rid of those tires ASAP. It's not worth risking your car over. Hell with RWD I don't have the rear end of my SP come around @25 MPH on me like that even with the stock F1s that have poor wet traction.

I run Continental PureContacts on my RWD, 235 wide on the tread. My tires stick like glue in all conditions so far. I am also going to say ditch those Hankook tires. An AWD should never spin out under the conditions you describe. Sounds like my 4x4 when I had Bridgestone Dueller Alenzas on, damned thing would get stuck if someone dropped a bag of ice in front of the truck. Put Contis on the truck, and now it sticks like glue in all conditions. I can now run it in 2WD safely in conditions that it couldn't handle in 4x4 with the Alenzas. Tires are your car's only connection to the world, and you want to make sure you have a good connection.

2016 SXT AWD. The first car I've ever hydroplaned and spun out in. It came with the 235/55/19. Looking for the best replacement tire.

Three years later lol....Continental DWS06 if they make it in that size or close to it
They make them in 255/50r19 which I ran on my awd for a while. Had 2 sets that wouldn't balance, compounded with discount tires inability to balance tires properly (I also took them elsewhere to get balanced).

I'd suggest Michelin pilot sport as3+ in 255/50r19.

Sounds like maybe a bad batch.....all the 275/40R20's I've used have been awesome, even in snow.
