I have used Goodyear Eagle GT 235/45/17 97V all season tires. They ha a 50,000 mile warranty and they last that long. This is the only tire I have had that has lasted anywhere close to the mileage warranty. As far as traction and handling is concerned, I live in Syracuse, NY where we get a bit of snow and these tires handle light snow well. You should try them, you will not be disappointed.
