Default RS 7 all season tires

Have a 2016 on order and trying to see if there are recommendations for all season tires (did the upgraded 21" tires). Live in Chicago and summer tires just won't cut it year around. Can't seem to find any on Tirerack/Goodyear etc. Thanks!

You can't find them because they don't exist. I think most people swap out to smaller wheels and tires for the winter. I can just barely get away with summer tires all year long where I live but I would be much happier with high performance all seasons. I sure hope somebody makes them for our 21" wheels soon.

Don't be cheap with an RS7. Get proper summer and winter setup to enjoy that vehicle to it's fullest potential.

I have the Michelin Pilot Sport All season 3 on my 20 inch HRE, and they are very good. Only minimal loss of dry grip in summer, decent in light snow since they are siped and have different rubber compounds. Seem to still grip well under APR level acceleration in straight line. I don't push handling to limit in that car, nor do I track that car. Not bad compromise.

I'm in Chicago and I opted for a full winter set-up: 20" Hartmanns with 265/35/20 Dunlop 3Ds......based on last winter (and this one so far), I'm really glad I did. All-season tires would not have done the job.
