Need new tires. Any All season recommendations?

I currently have Kuhmo Supra's on my car, however they are going to need replaced soon. I don't want to spend the $ for summer and winter tires. Any recommendations for maybe and all-season tire or something? I was thinking Kuhmo Ecsta's.

Any ideas? These tires will be on all summer, but since I have to get them in a week or so I just don't want to get stuck in the snow.

i believe Kumho Ecsta AST and ASX are high performance all seasons and are fairly decent in grip as well as lower price

both are available on tirerack

My concern is, will they be ok to roll on in light to moderate snow here in Ohio?

I am currently having the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S. They are about done (45k miles), so I am shopping, too. I actually liked them a lot, muuuuch better than the stock Conti Touring Contact the car came with (They actually lasted about 54k mi.). I guess the Michelins are OK in snow (again certainly better than the Contis), but I can't really compare them to any serious alternative. I would buy the Michelins again, but will probably try out something else (mostly just for curiosity, actually, but the Pilot Sport A/S are a bit pricey, too). I am considering the Pirelli PZero Nero M&S and the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position.

Pirelli PZero Nero M&S, have had them on three cars, works great as an all year round tire. No issues in light snow. The michelins are pricey but will perform the best. I'm not convinced on the bridgestone though.

I really liked the Toyo's for their grip and handling as I had them on a VW Passat Turbo Coupe. The downside is that that were so worn down after a year of normal wear and tear. I dont want to have to replace tires again after 12 months that's kinda why I wanted opinions on the Kuhmo Ecstas so I could try something different.
