Darkside tire side question

So im opting to go darkside on my 04' DL650 since im mostly riding city commuting andand highway and never really ride it hard (keep that for my CBR) and getting around 10,000km only out of a $160 tire +installation is not very economical for a student budget.
So my questions are:
1/ I know most here say they're using 205-55/R17, but would a 205-50/R17 be ok? (thats the most size i can find)
2/ what are the best tire choice? All season? Or anybody uses a winter tire (for better traction in cold, rain, light snow?
