Go for the ones with the best wet grip rating.
My last two tyre renewals have been Dunlop (Sport or Blue Response) on this basis.
They also handle great and are quiet too. You could probably find tyres that lasted longer though.
Regardless of how little you use the car, the time some idiot pulls / steps out on you on a rainy day is the time you will regret buying the wrong rubber as your ABS kicks in and you helplessly watch the future unfold...
Just imagine your loved ones in the car with you at that time if it helps.
This is a good example of what is called a 'no-brainer' IMO, but of course if you live in a country with no rain - disregard the above...
Good advice. Oh and I've read somewhere recently, tyres over 6 Birthdays old should be considered for replacement ..... I found two recently twice that GONE now.
