Yes, there are so many options now available in tires that you will be surprised what you can find out. It could fill an entire website. I always liked the Goodyear Aqua-Tread (or similar named) tires, or the Michelins, which even have a ice-rating. Any quality tire shouldn't affect your ride too much, and the biggest factor for fuel economy is keeping whatever tire you have properly inflated. Even a few PSI below rated inflation numbers will cost 5-10% fuel economy.
