I agree that all round ones would be best! :P

 

Black circle ( http://www. blackcircles. com )or etyres ( http://www. etyres. co. uk/ ) are a good stating point.

Normally use Tyreshopper myself and the current set are Dunlop Sport blue response, good in the wet but wear isn't great.

Michelin Pilot Sport 3's. Great in the dry and superior performance in the wet. Very good for what is basically a summer tyre.

 

Longevity depends on your driving technique. I am no boy racer and find the compound these tyres are made of is my perfect choice. Giving me great road holding and good mileage results.

 

Good luck with your choice. :)

Depends on what type of car you want them on. Wife has them on her golf Tdi. They are Michelin energy tyres, cost circa £70 each and so far have lasted 21k, with another 5k or so of life left in them

I would say that if you do a lot of towing then you may find an XL or higher 94 rated tyre or even a 94XL rated tyre may have a slightly stiffer sidewall and give you a better towing feel.

I switched to XL tyres on my previous towcar and the difference was fantastic.

Have a look at the options available in your size.

 

This would be 'MY' personal preference of tyre. My second towcar uses the same size.

I think these are a good all rounder for your requirements though :-
