    Falken Ziex 512's. I had them on my old honda up here in MT and they did very well in rain. I only had them on for the summer and then sold the car, so I'm not sure how they'll do in snow. But another friend has the Ziex and I can tell you how they do whenever it snows here next.

    The tires are cheap, too, and stick very well for all season.

    i've heard people say they hate them.. the T1s are good (good in rain i hear too) and the RA1 or for road course (probably suck in rain)

    I hate them with a fuggin' passion.

    4 months perfectly aligned and 1 month with ~1 degree negative camber. the shop that did the alignment after my two suspension swaps said the ride height was very close and adjustments weren't really needed that bad.

    the tires do grip well on hot days, but suck in rain and are horrid in snow. all season tires my ass.

    S-03s kick ass in the snow and ice too. Don't take my word for it though... but driving on solid ice with summer only tires is FUN.

    :lol:
