What do folks think:
Vredestein Quatrac 5 225/60R18 for mainly city some forest roads in Southeast US?

Stock 2016 2.5i Tour

Looking for keeping quiet and gas mileage.

I drive around 30K per year.

Been getting around 28 mpg.

Want confidence in rain and sometimes forest roads to get to trailheads.

You will get better traction than most other tires, certainly any all season tire. That is an all-weather tire. All weather tires can be over simplified as a Winter tire modified for all season use. They have a snowflake symbol. If you like the idea of a true all weather tire I would get Nokian WR G3 or WR G4. You are in the SE. Longevity may be a factor depending on how hot it stays.

I am seriously considering these same tires. There is not very much information about them but Tirerack seems to like them. The price is certainly good.

I would worry with that low of a score on the UTQG that you will be repacking tires every year or so.

Bought those tires and drove them all last summer and into the fall, Not exactly spirited driving but I enjoy New England back roads and drive a lot of dirt roads as well, great traction show no sign of wear w/ about 5k miles on them. And they worked fine for our first couple of snow flakes on serious hills before I put my Nokians on. I highly recommend them.
