You mean Azenis, and they are poop on wet roads. I don't know how the Paradas do on wet roads, but folks seem to like them. If you can find a decent deal on the the Bridgestone Pole Position S-03 is good. I am running the new Yokohama AVS ES100 and they are great on dry roads, they seem to handle rain well, but I have not driven them in the snow.

keep your steelies for the winter
so3's are out of your price range at about 140 each
azenis are awesome in the dry, crappy at best in the wet, and i wouldnt DARE take my car out with them in even a dusting of snow.
i had parada spec2's... they were decent.
if you don't mind a low treadwear, pirelli p-zero asymetrico's rock.

a lot of people knock em, I've been using Kumho Ecsta 712's and have had nothing but good luck with them.
Very stiff sidewall, great tread wear, I've taken some nice 180deg corners at at least 60mph, handle great in wet weather (I can do 80 on the highway in the rain and have no problems) , They suck in snow. and they aren't that big of a dent in the wallet

if so3's are out of your price range try Bridgestone's RE950 they have all the same technology that the S-03's have but in a little harder compound. So that also means they will last longer.
I have these tires on my EG and for the money I would not buy anything else unless I was going for a all race setup.

damn...i was going to get azenis too...so they wear out quick..do you guys mean normal driving or doing a lot of peeling driving. which tires are good and how much do the toyo or yoko mention above go for? i have some dunlop sp sport w-10 on my ride now..and it wears out on the inside of the front...the middle and outside is still good as hell too...i was thinking about reversing one of them and buying anothor tire 4 the other one...since i can see the metal wires on it. let me know.
may the VTEC be with you!!

yeah...i'm planning on doing that after i get my new tires...by the way, will camber kit last long if i do a lot of dragracing/streetracing?? i've heard some bad stuff about them...but i forgot what they were.

im on my second set of hankook ventus tires. i noticed noone mentioned them.
the first set was the hrIIs, theyre now on my boyfriends car and still have about 80% tread left, handle great in rain or dry and theyre cheap.
i just got the h101s, dont like them quite as much as the hrIIs for odvious reasons, but theyre still a really decent tire for the money.

Parada Spec-2's are AWESOME in dry weather... not too sure in wet weather though (haven't driven in any). I imagine as long as you're not driving through deep puddles they'll do fine.
