    Often times I say round ones, sometimes though people chime in and like good year because of the non circular geometry.

    Love the "What's the best tire thread"

    Dedicated snow tires and don't use them in the summer.
    I have used Blizzak and Yokohama Geolander I/T. Some others have used Cooper M + S with good results.

    If you are looking for a set of tires to use all year, here are my picks:

    -BFG A/T KO Most aggressive and my favorite
    -Michelin A/T 2 Not as aggressive
    -Dayton Timberline A/T Commercial even less aggressive but gets it done and much cheaper. It gets better MPG on the road.

    Ones to look at that I have not tried but look great:
    Goodyear Dura trac
    General Grabber A/T
