Which tire manufacturer makes the best all season tires with the longest rated treadwear warranty?
This is a triple-negative.
All-seasons suck at all seasons.
Long treadwear means awful performance.
Best tire means not all season and not long treadwear.
There's a new crop of tires calling themselves "ultra-high-performance all-seasons" but I haven't driven on them since I run alternating sets of dedicated winter and summer tires. The reality is, if you have mixed-weather driving conditions and cold winters (even without snow), winter tires will be vastly superior to even the best all-season tire. Meanwhile, in summer weather, all-seasons will not perform anywhere near as well as even a cheap summer tire.
The answer to your question is:
Go to the junkyard, find a set of OE wheels for your car for around $100, then buy a set of summer tires and a set of winter tires. Between both sets, you'll get a lot of mileage and the best possible performance in all seasons, from your tires. Without having to settle for all season tires.
In addition, you won't have to wait for the mad scramble at the tire shop each fall and spring, and you can read the weather and switch when it makes sense. It takes, what, 15 minutes to change all four tires on your own with a floor jack and star wrench? You can even wait until it snows one morning, swap 'em out, and head off to work.
