Default torn between Potenza 950 and Dueler H/L for Forester

I'm getting ready to replace the 205/70-15 tires on my 2000 Forester. the Dueler H/L's seem like a logical upgrade over the Dueler H/T's that it came with. the potenza RE950 alos looks like a god choice, especially since it can be had in the slightly lower 65 series profile.

we do go camping several times a year where we need to drive on gravel rods and off road a bit and perhaps once or twice a year to the snow. other than that, the car sees all highway.

I know with the 65 series, I'd loose a little tire circumpherence but it seems minimal.

would appreciate any advice.

oh, and I plan to install the FHI 18mm rear sway bar if that matters.

Default big difference

going from 70 series to 65 series tires does make a big difference.
I fyou go to 65 series tires, consider going to 215 or 225 width.
I am not familiar with any of those tires, but take into consideration what kind of driving you do the most and what kind of traction you need the most. Dry/Wet/Off-Road/Mud/Snow etc

Good Luck
