Which tyres are best for all year use?

I have a 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan, with Bridgestone 235/55 R17 Dueller H/P tyres. I am not confident these tyres will help me much in winter/snowy conditions, but do not want to have to change them each year when winter comes around. Can you suggest tyres that would be best for all year round use?

Vredestein Quatrac 3 and Goodyear Vector 4Seasons are 'all weather tyres': better than summer tyres in snow; better than winter tyres in summer. Test of all weather tyres at www.tyrereviews.co.uk
