Default Good all around tires?

Alright guys I've been looking for an good all-around tire, something that can go threw it all, but can still be good for a daily driver, city and highway. Good for traction on snow, mud, ice, road/rain, and anything in between.

Toyo Open Country for me... im not a big fan of the bfg all terrain.. the tread lugs are to close together for the snow i drove in.. got some knockoff brand that had the same exact tread design for 500 out the door.. held up very well.. got 60k out of them.. they were American Prospectors..

Goodyear Duratracs. Hands down the best AT tire I've ever dealt with.

So far I've loved my Dick Cepek Radial FC IIs, they handle great on road in wet or dry conditions as well as sand and mud off road. Have not had a chance to get them in snow or ice but from what I've read they do great in that too. They were a little noisy for the first 1000 miles but have quieted down a bit now. All around great tire with great tread life and looks.
