Personally...

I love the BFG G-force KDW2's. I've used the G-force Sports and the KDW tires and they're just phenominal. Great street use, grip and they're not that bad on the budget. PLUS, they have an awesome tread design.

I live in Alaska, so I dont know what kind of weather is normally in OK, but I'm going to assume mostly dry with very nominal snow. So, these tires are goign to last you a good 20K miles easy.

I personally love my Toyo Proxy4 tires...they're low pros so not sure if the exact ones will fit (i have a 97 Tib) but i love them cuz not only are they low pros but they're mud and snow tires so I have no problem in different conditions...except ice...but who doesnt! but i have gone up to the mountains for the past two years and have never had a problem with sliding or slipping in the snow!! Hope that helps!!:D

Yes, getting high performance tires makes a difference. People all have their favorites and in reality pretty much anyone's suggestions are a fine place to start.

Here the weather kind of sucks so I run 3 season tires plus winter tires. Couldn't be happier. I sacrifice a small amount of maximum traction on dry pavement, but only a small amount.

i would suggest running somthing like the falken rt-615 they are by far the cheapest tire that will hold up to weekend track abuse and daily driving without too much comprimise in wet handling
