Take a look at the BFG g-Force Super Sport A/S. This tire uses three different rubber compounds for enhanced all season traction. Here's a link with more details:

Here is a bit of info from the internet about the tires listed above...they don't look too bad from the reports of Modified car magazine...

"We tested the g-Force Super Sport A/S in the wet-mounted on an Audi A4-and in the dry, on a Lancer Evolution IX. The tire has a respectable amount of grip for an all-season item and almost the same steering feel, response and initial turn-in bite of the A046 max-grip tires-with a hell of a lot more wet traction than any other tire with the same dry grip. Plus, it's a lot quieter than most aggressive and sticky summer tires.

Use your search engine and check best rated tires...some of theses will be overpriced and may not be what you are looking for anyways...I go for the best tire for the price I find reasonable...I don't need the ultimate tire, just the best for the best price....

get some cheap kumho ASX's and call it a day, not a great performance tire but will do good in all weather.

It all depends on what you're looking for, and the price you're willing to pay. I think if it were me and I would be driving all-season (I used to), I would probably go as good as could be for both situations (winter/summer)...and I would want some performance out of them. I have the Yoko's on for summer, and due to the weather here in Canadaland, I bought a cheap set of rims and decent Blizzak tires for winter....they aren't "the ultimate best" but they are not too bad in reviews, and safety is an issue here with huge snowstorms...I don't care about performance at those moments when I'm trying to stay out of the ditch. I get the performance in the summer and the safety in the winter which works for me...I wouldn't want non-performance all seasons...what would be the point when you own such a nice car? Need some performance somewhere...lol.

the kumhos are a decent blend of a performance oriented tire that handle in bad weather. Also they last a good amount of time. the tire i really liked to for winter use is no longer made and the recplacement sucks.....
