Need to replace tires, i have a few questions

Im going to be putting my M68s back on the car in a couple weeks. I want to get new tires for them. I have the stock conti's that came on the car. I need to know what tire offers the smoothest and most quiet ride, yet something that is descent in the snow. The continentals were horrendous in the snow. Does anyone have any suggestions?? thanks.

from what i've heard the dunlop sp9000 are quiet. your oem sportcontacts shouldn't be good in the snow ... since they're SUMMER tires.

I think any of these would work as long as the amount of snow is MINIMAL. I've heard that the P-Zeros work really well.
