2022 Honda CRV Hybrid - Favorite All Weather Tires

Recommended Posts

My 2022 CRV Hybrid is still on its original OEM Bridgestone Ecopia tires. We recently had some pretty heavy rains and for the first time since I moved to Seattle 13 years ago, my car hydroplaned and didn't feel stable driving on the highway in the heavier-than-normal rains. I've had a Toyota Camry, Toyota Venza, Toyota Rav4, and now this Honda CRV EX Hybrid and this is the first car I've ever had issues with driving in the rain. For context, I grew up in NJ for 18 years, drove in Boston for 4 years, 2 years in Virginia/DC, and a decade in Los Angeles. I'm not new to driving in inclement weather.

The only difference I can tell, aside from the vehicles obviously, is that this is the first time I've ever had Bridgestone tires on a car. After reading some reviews of the Bridgestone Ecopia tires online, I'm beginning to think that 1) they're garbage and 2) I should replace them for a variety of safety reasons. 

Now, normally I'd just head down to my local Les Schwab and get one of their All-Season tires and call it a day -- I've been fine with their Quatrac Pro series. Before I go schedule that appointment, I was wondering if anyone had recommendations on a good all-weather tire for Seattle -- Frequently drizzing, infrequently downpouring, very infrequently torrential downpour, and snow/ice for maybe 1 week a year. Otherwise, lots of hills and lots of crappy drivers.
