Best All Season Tires for 18x7.5 Rims?

Eventually going to be upgrading from my stock rims but dont really want to have a set of summer tires and winter tires. So what tire(s) offer you the best of both worlds?

I'll tell you what aren't the best all season tires. Toyo Extensa A/S. Wow. Garbage.

All seasons are a compromise. Don't expect stellar dry grip or good ratings for any other condition. It'll just be decent across the board.

If you consider yourself an enthusiast, get yourself a dedicated summer and winter set.

Well these Nitto Motivos are very high rated for everything besides snow it seems. Will a 18x7.5 rim with 225x40 18 tires fit on the cobalt being lowered???
