Default Suspension or tires

If you had to pick and could only choose one. Would you get xida or ad08 tires. If you pick tires then you would have to stay with stock na 20 year old suspension. If you pick xida you have to stay with all season tires.

Which would you pick? I know they are 2 completely different priced items but I'm just trying to decide what to do. I just want to buy one upgrade for now. If tires then I would have to watch the weather channel in the next few months for cold weather. It's my daily.

Flying kind of blind here without knowing your climate or why you want high performance upgrades, but nonetheless I think my answer would be the same. Are your all-seasons in reasonable shape (safe) now? If yes, suspension now, tires next spring. A stock 20 year old suspension setup is far gone.

Mostly daily with some auto x here and there. Tires are good.
