Default S80 T6 All Season Tires

I am looking for some recommendations on which type of all season tires to install on my 2000 S80 T6.

The car is presently shod with the OEM Michelin MXM4 225/50 R17 94V M&S.
I am unhappy with their performance, specifically grip, in all conditions; dry, wet & snow.

Living in the general Toronto area all season performance, including acceptable snow performance, is my goal. I realize that all season tires will not perform as well as true snow tires in icey or snowy conditions but I am trying to find the best compromise.

Through my limited amount of research (Tire Rack and 1010Tire) I have come across Toyo TPT's and Bridgestone Turanza LS-V's. Neither one is inexpensive. The Toyo's are $249 (CDN) per tire installed and the Bridgestone's are $269 (CDN) per tire installed (sourced from a local tire specialty shop).

I was hoping that this forum might be of assistance in providing me with reviews and/or recommendations on the above tires or any other tires that would be more suitable for my S80 T6.

Thanks for your help.

I have Cooper Lifeliner Touring SLE 225/50 R17 tires on my 2000 Volvo S80
and live is Rhode Island (USA). They handle just fine in the snow and they
price out at about $120.00.

a little late to the response, but new mwmber here. I have the cooper on my 99 s80, switched from the Micheline. When I bought the car 2 years ago there were two worn micheline on and the dealer said he would replace. When I picked up the car there were four brand new Coopers. My wife does not care as she drives the car mostly, however, I find a much harder drive as compared to the micheline. If I were to get tires now, I would probably try the toyo, based upon the positive feedback from customes on 110tires and all. Not to say the coopers are not good tires, just a much harder ride.

Coopers are the one's that are on mine too, they are pretty good i think, if your're spending like 250 or less, id check out bridgestone, they have a really good all season line of tires. Im not sure how much they go for...
