What all-season tires (brand) works best for a Land Rover (specifically Freelander SE AWD)?

I own a 2005 Land Rover Freelander SE AWD and I am having trouble finding which all-season brand to match with them. All the reviews seem to be for people who race there cars or use them for sport cars, not for small SUV’s, so it is hard to put a finger on which ones I need. The ones that came stock are continental 4×4 contact 235/50R18 97H, but I don’t think they ride all that great.

    These are a bit pricey, but you didn’t list restrictions, so here is my recommendation! Michelin Pilot Sport A/S (Ultra High Performance All-Season)
    Check out the reviews from people who bought them!

    I agree with the person who said get the “Mich Pilot”. I sell tires everyday and this is an awkward size with the 18 inch rim. Unfortunately, the “50” and the “18” make the tire expensive. You could try going to a 235/55/18 and maybe save some money. That would make the profile of the tire a little bigger which is the distance from the tire set on the rim to the tread blocks on the top.

    Good Luck!

    Nice post. By the way i heard that in 2010 michelin plans to make some supper tires. Which saves energy and valid longer time then nowday tires, and this tires will be perfect for electorcars.
