The UHP used to be rated All Season but now they are Summer (Tire Rack).

My car came with the 18" Pilots so a comparison with the 19" UHPs is not going to be too objective or fair. What I know is that the UHP are excellent tires for the price, they stick and handle like they cost two times as much, are not noisy at all and they last some 30,000+ miles easily. Currently I have them installed in this M3, and in a Passat B6, and before that in a MKV GTI and in an E46 M3.

The same with the Eibachs... that's the only aftermarket spring that I install in my cars ('87 323, '90 Protegé, '93 318i, '96 Z3, '98 323iC, '04 M3, '07 GTI). They just work like OEM but lower and sharper. No issues with busted shocks at all, never, nada... that '93 318i rode them over 60,000 miles and still they were tight.
