Help me choose some tires

Some background - I drive mostly highway or in town. Probably 90%. But at least a couple times a month I'm heading off road, but nothing too serious, just decommissioned logging roads, sometimes shallow creek crossings.

Also, I'm planning a lift in the next year or so, but can't afford it now, but I need tires now. So I'm going to go with 265/70/17, so that it doesn't look wussy when I do lift it. I've read that I won't have any problem with rubbing on stock suspension and wheels.

I'm going to be using these in the winter as well, heavy snow and ice, I work mostly in whistler. I should buy proper winters, but again budget is an issue this year so I will hold off on those till next year.

This is my first poll so hopefully it works.

For that matter, where do you get good deals on tires here in BC? For 4new tires I'm looking at $1100 or so according to the quotes I got today for the tires in the above poll.
