Frankly, Seattle (where the OP is) is an ideal place for Summer Performance or Snows, as performance tires work in our fall and spring quite well: they're usually as good or better in the rain as all-seasons. And I guarantee that a performance all-season (say the Michelin Pilot A/S) is not as good as a PS2 or PSS on dry roads.
And I guarantee that Blizzak LM60 snows are not as good as a Michelin Pilot A/S on dry roads.
