Default Currently Overseas and looking for Tires

Hello everyone, I am currently stationed overseas in Greece and im looking for some advice. I am looking for a set of good tires that are grippy as hell on smooth serfaces, due to the fact that the roads here are paved with shell. If anyone can give me a direction to go in I would be very pleased

I plan on buying off tire rack or some other online store, due to the fact that the locals all drive hyundias and what not. In the past month I have seen maybe 2 other STi's on the island. Other reason is I dont speak Greek and I have a hard time communicating with the locals.
