You have ALOT of options. Given you have an RT, I assume you appreciate performance, yet need a tire that is good for daily commuting... Also, it depends if you want all season, 3 season or summer tires... generally speaking, summer tires are the stickiest (best performance), all season tires, the hardest (least performance, but high mileage before wear out)... of course, there are grades within grades... phew, its confusing! LOL

Not knowing specifics, I suggest the following:

I don't know if they make tires for your size wheels (just check on their website or tirerack, etc.).
Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta: 3 season/summer tires, more geared towards warmer weather, but will work well in cooler temps (not winter)... probably the best overall tire (good treadwear and excellent performance)

I need tires for all season but I need sizes!!! I have no clue on sizes.
Most people I've seen with staggered 20s run 245/45/20 on front and 275/40/20 on the back.
Yeah, but he's rollin' on 10" wides on the rear... given that, you do NOT want WIDE tires for all seasons (in winter time). Wide tires will float over snow and act like snowmobile skis... bad idea.

May I suggest you compromise... get a set of steel wheel for winter and throw on some winter tires... use the wheels you have now (8.5" front, 10" rear) for spring, summer, fall... and get some decent tires for that setup?!

If that's the case, I believe 315's in the rear are about the comfort level for a 10" wide wheel... for the 8.5", I'd go no bigger than 255, 245 to be safer.
