Default Tire help please?

Ok, I am going to get one of these two tires. I am wondering if anyone has them to recomend them to me.

I prefer the second one, it seems to have better ratings in the snow. the only thing is that it has only a few consumer reviews. The one on the top has worse ratings in the snow, but has a lot of good consumer ratings. I need some help, I want to make sure that I choose the right kind of tire. I will be doing daily driving, and possibly some racing if I can get down to the track in Englishtown or something. Not sure if I will though.

Hankook Ventus HRII H405 = trash. Traction simply sucks.

the other one, I have no idea. I had k104 or was it k106. And it barked a lot but had good traction.

check out the 2008/2009 winter tire thread hosted by tirerack. Tell luke what you're looking for and what you drive and he'll get back to you with the best tires for your application. I'm sure he'd know a lot more about those two that you're looking at too.
