tire choices, but different

this topis has been beat to death I know, but I have different needs/wants in my tires than most people on here so Im hoping somebody can give me some choices!

my scorpions are getting close to being done, so I am obviously tire shopping, I live in the PNW so cold rain is the norm, along with snow once or twice a year.

I drive lots of curvy roads and even drive down dirt roads pretty regularly.

I like my scorpions, but I honestly feel they are overpriced for what they are.
I have PSP's on my CLK500...pretty good tire.

I CARE about load rating (I tow my race bike trailer all over, about 1000-1200 pounds loaded with my bike and tools) and I CARE about wet handling (curvy roads in the olympic peninsula in the rain heading to surf spots in the winter)

COST is an issue, I WILL NOT spend more than the Scorpions (and I really dont want to spend that much)

I DO NOT care about treadwear (much), noise or harshness. Id be driving a caddy if those were my concerns.
(for reference my last vehicle was a lifted Nisasn titan with 33's that were over 13" wide)

so start throwing out the suggestions...I was looking at the Conti DWS, but they seem to be eternally backordered.
