Tire Suggestions 2016

Hi, hoping to hear some suggestions for replacement tires for my 2003 FX45 (20's). I currently have Michelins that have been decent tires, just not sure if they are the best choice. I live in the Pacific Northwest, we have a lot of rain year around, (I plan to also purchase winter tires for the icy and snowy months, and would like suggestions as well) I admittedly have a lead foot, and I drive in heavy freeway traffic (unexpected braking often to avoid awful drivers), as well as on winding rural mountainous roads. Any suggestions? Anyone really pleased with their tires?

Have you checked the reviews on Tire Rack? YOKOHAMA PARADA SPEC-X have been very popular. Look up the old threads for other tire options.

I am in the same boat, need to start looking for tires, I need a long life tire I drive about 30k miles per year if not more.
I read great things about Yokohama Parada Spec-X but the one negative I have read is that thread life isn't that great. Is that true?

and I am thinking going one size up (275/55/20) to adjust the speedo difference to actual. Car reads about 5% higher even after the speedo recall was "fixed" so for this I have found Continental CrossContact LX20 EcoPlus at a reasonable price and the thread life is great 780 rating I believe, but I don't know if anyone has used these tires (different size)
