I recommend Dunlop SP Sport A2 (H-rated) tires for all-weather conditions. They have been on my car for over a year and still work very well. Dry weather traction is excellent (I've yet to find an all-weather tire that matches them), and they don't hydroplane hardly at all (only one time have i made them do it: 60 mph into a 3" deep puddle). Winter traction is so-so; because of the sticky rubber, ice traction is pretty darn good. Snow tho...thats their weak point. Dry stuff, thats fine, but not the heavy slushy crap. The tread isn't very deep like regular snow tires; they will get stuck if one isn't careful. Then again, maybe I'm just being hard on them, driving in *gasp* the Lake Superior snowbelt. I love the handling on these tires, too. The guy i had mount them said the sidewalls were so stiff he had problems getting them on the rims. Word of caution: these grip very well and give wheel hop on stock motor mounts.

Added bonus: they're easy on the pocketbook at under $70 per, at least for 185/65-R14s.

Falken Azenis are the best tire for your money for all but two things:

Snow
Drag Racing

True! Atzenas are good tires, but nothing beats the old Yokohama AVS intermediates. Ahhh, the good old days of Auto-xing...Till they discontinued them!!! Bastards.

kuhmo ecta supra , toyo proxes.pirellis hp,all great tires.

i had the pirelis on my ex from98 to 2002 and they perform very well.

the toyo proxes provides good grip in my gsr much like the kuhmos i had before.

bridgestone potenza re 910. very good in wet conditions. holds corners very well. only sucks in snow. you can get going but the snow gets stuck in the groves and you hit the gas and only spin the tires. like driving on slicks in the snow.

but for performance, they're very good.

I love them. they're so much better than the firestone's. I had a set of dunlop somethings. I can't remember, they were alright, I went through that set in a year. almost a year on these tires and holy shit I can't tell. the tread still looks new.

Been running pole positions s02's for two years now..best tire ever. (1955015) Excellant in rain, puddles, ect. Never tried in snow, usually put my stocks on for that...but dry..O damn..VERY nice. But because of the soft compounds just like any other v or up rated tire you have to rotate them Very aggresively to get any kind of life out of them.

I have had Dunlop Sport A2's which I thought were ok, but I liked the Dunlop Sport 9000's that I had before better. I've also owned a set of Toyo Proxes which were on my rims when I bought them from my friend and even though they were almost bald stuck pretty good. Ventus is a good tire for the money. I had one of their H rated directional tires and they did good, but not as good as the 9000's or Proxes. My next set, which I have to buy soon, is going to be a set of Bridgestone Pole Position S-03's.

^^^^I've only had the car for 3 years....damn I kill tires!!!

I had some avon ZZ1's from townfair. They performed very well and were virtually undistructable. The only problem is they were loud as hell!
Then i used the yoko avids, excellent tire for the money quiet and aggressive!

Ok, just got the wanli's on last friday. DAMN, for the money ($73 dollars a pop) they are WELL worth the money. we had a wintery mix hear last night, and the tires did alright for a high performance tire. and from what rain we did have over the past weekend they do ok in the rain.

now for the dry street, they ride MUCH better than the kumho 711, and bfgoodrich euro t/a's. they grip just as good or better than the two others i mentioned. i would just like to recommend these tires as a trial tire for anyone who is looking for a tire that is less than a $100 a pop. they work very well, especially if you live somewhere that doesn't snow much. but so far not many issues with them in a wintry mix. now i can't speak for how well they do in the snow or on ice, haven't got enough snow to make a judgement yet.
