That's like mixing a Tux upper with a pair of torn Loose jeans LOL ....Ummmmm No thanks to the "specialist advice". Stock tires are good in warm weather and if you DON"T expect good launches and crappy wet driving....dangerous in winter conditions in my opinion.
I replaced mine with Continental DW performance summer tires....night and day difference...The D stands for dry and W for wet...when the W wears down that it disappears, it's telling you they are past sufficient thread life to be used in wet, same idea for the D...These tires are second place to the Michelin's Pilot super sport on Tire Rack tire compero. For winter, I use a set of Michelin Ice/snow tires., very happy with them too.
As others suggested, think of what you're looking for and work in from there...convey those wishes to someone that REALLY knows tires and let them help you out.
