He was asking for both a tire recommendation and a shop.
I dont know what to tell him about tires, except Michelin, so I told him about a shop...a kicka*s shop btw.

rubber is a preference....

i personally like michellin tires. it also depends on what kind of riding style you have....if you commute mostly, then you need a tire with a good tread life....if you ride your bike on occasion, and want a sticky tire, then you'll want a tire with a softer compound. blah blah blah
