    What climate? Snow? How much snow, for how many months per year? Age of
    driver(s)? Do drivers venture out in most any kind of weather, or does rain
    keep them home?

    You've never seen me do that. If you disagree, illustrate your point
    clearly, using examples from other messages.

    And I can't understand that. What difference does age make when shopping
    for tires? It's assumeds if someone comes in looking for info on tires,
    then the best bet is to go with a good tire that serves your purpose.

    The OP indicated he liked snow tires for winter, and All-Seasons for the
    rest of the year. But his initial post saud, "Suggestions Welcome".

    This leaves a whole can of worms. I myself would go one rim size larger if
    I couls afford it and go with the fattest tires I could fit on the car.
    That's my suggestion. How does age play into that?

    Maybe he was looking for the best tire to fit the existing rims. I'd go
    with BF Goodrich Radial T/A or a similar tire.

    Obviously, he's looking to buy new tires, so I still fail to see how the
    age of the driver plays into it.

    Coastal Maine, so rainy, foggy, and snowy. It snows from October to
    April. Average snowfall is 5ft. I usually stay in when it snows or
    rains, but will sometimes venture out in rain when needed.

    I am 25. I have had one at-fault accident due to inattention, but
    helped by the poor conditions. I have also had one speeding ticket.

    I am wondering if it is worth trying the high end tires once. I would
    put them on the front and put the current front ones on the back to
    replace the back ones which need to be changed. The tread wear
    indicators are showing on the back tires.

    You want Nokian WR tires. Believe me - you'll like them.

    Thanks to everyone who responded. It has given me something to think
    about. I wish the ultralight aircraft newsgroup was as active as this
    one. I should also add I do not typically drive more than 10,000 miles
    year. I walk to work and only drive the car on the weekends.
