Best Rally Tires

Looking for feedback from the guys (or girls) who have been doing rally with their Foci on what the best tires are for rally. I've heard snow tires do really well and I'm do for a new set this winter so I was thinking of buying them with an eye to the 2014 rally season...what should I get/look at?

Firestone Winterforce. They are kind of a hybrid tire and will last a bit longer than something like a Bridgestone Blizzak in the summer. They are harder so they hold up to more abuse but are still good in the snow.

No. Buy Dmack tires. They are build for rally, and are about the same price as a good winter tires. Look for DMACK tires USA

Would the Dmacks be good multi taskers...good for rally and still do snow duty?

Are you talking about the gravel or snow/ice DMACK tires for general use in winter?

But no gravel or snow tire is going to last long.
