Default I need some ideas for tires

the tires on the Lego Gt sedan are getting to the point where i need to start thinking about changing them. Still have 10k to go according to the tire shop in town, but I dont think they really know how I drive the car. I really am looking for something all season that can handle snow OK, and has to be able to hold up to the somewhat frequent trips on gravel roads to the woods to go biking. On our old GT wagon, we put some proxes 4 on it. They seem to do alright. Just want something that can corner and handle the Oregon winters and not wear out super fast or get shredded on the gravel. Gonna save getting the uber nice tires for when we get some 17's for the car. So what are people running and what are the likes and dislikes? Thought I would start in lego-land before heading out in the world.
Thanks

Dave

I had some Dunlop SP5000s on my RS a few years ago. Liked them a lot, worked well in snow and gravel. Not all that bad on the road either. Fairly inexpensive. They were recomended to me from someone on this site at the time.

Hankook W300's do great in the snow, wet and they also grip pretty well on dry tarmac. Gravel, I dunno.

Look for a set of used 17" wheels with decent tires.
