Got money?
Bridgestone Potenza RE-970 A/S
Best dry traction and performance.
OK wet traction, hopeless in the snow.
Best road feel
Shortest lifespan

Good balance?
Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Good dry, wet traction.
Decent in snow, worked well in Colorado ski season.
Mushy road feel
Lasts pretty long

Low budget?
Kumho Ecsta 4X
Good dry, wet traction.
No comments on snow (haven't driven it in snow)
Last a long time
Super rock hard road feel.
Transmits a lot of noise and vibration into the car.
Feels like you're riding on top of a jackhammer.

I have personally driven on all 3 tires before.
