Tire choice advice?

Just bought a 2002 Boxster S, only 17,000 miles on it. (18" wheels) Tires are original, which means 9 year old rubber.
Will buy all-season high performance tires, considering the Michelin Pilot sport a/s plus, the Pirelli PZeroNero and ... not sure what else. Want great handling performance with a good ride, will occasionally drive in light snow, but lots of rain the bigger concern. Any advice?
Thanks!

Always been a big fan of Michelin Super Sports. They ride and handle beautifully. My 2011 Boxster Spyder came with Bridgestone Potenza's but when I need tires I will definitely go with the Michelin Super Sports.

Check with tirerack.com ...10 years is dangerous on a sport tire. Don't forget the back ones will last maybe 20k!
