Hi,
 
I am new to the tire scene and require your advices/experiences with some tires. I am especially planning to buy via a store for the credit plan payment option.
 
Since I travel alot, I am planning to buy All season (as I think they handle better than performance tires? - let me know if this is wrong)
 
The store has this list of tires for my car:
 
2005 Honda Civic 2 Dr Coupe LX: 195/60R15
 
Continental ContiProContact
General Tire Altimax HP (Performance)
 Goodyear Eagle GT - Reviews says faster wear?! (Performance)
 Michelin Primacy MXV4 - Some good reviews
 Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3
Pirelli P6 Four Seasons (Performance)
 
Is there any good tires above according to your opinion? Through search here, I found that different sizes can be ok (up to some threshold?) If then what other sizes can I look into? (I have winter tires) I am looking to get tires for

70% hwy driving
Good handling (breaking in wet especially) for the terrible 401 traffic (I travel 52km one way for work)
 Fuel economy/price - not a major problem
 
Thanks for your help!

The Michelin Primacy MXV4 is well-reviewed, though a bit pricey if my memory serves.  The Pirelli is a good choice too.

Consider "performance" secondary to "all-season".  You'll want a tire that's quiet, handles well in all weather, and has decent life.
