What's the best all-season commercial tyre?

I have a 2008 Volkswagen Transporter T5 that needs a new set of tyres. As Michelin Cross Climate tyres are not available in 215/65-16 commercial, can you recommend an all season tyre that will fit instead?

If you can’t get Michelin Cross Climates then you might be better fitting Goodyear Cargo Vector 2s. They aren’t the cheapest all-season tyre you can get, but they provide good performance and shouldn’t wear out as quickly as a standard winter tyre. I've tried them on a number of vans and always been left impressed with the handling on icy roads or heavy rain.
