If you have lots of mods and you drive in the rain, I don't care what rubber you're running. Traction becomes history. You either go performance and be careful or good driving tires and blow em off when you're playing. Just based on my experiences

What conditions will you be driving in mostly?

I've never had issues driving in rain on performance tires, just have to exercise caution.

I would just buy performance tires. I live in Louisiana. But I drive on Sumitomo HTR-Zs on the back. Rain, ice, whatever. Lol. They seem to do fine. Just have to be cautious.

Many High Performance Summer tires (like pilot super sports) perform really good in the rain. The problem is temperature. Some start loosing significant grip even at 50 degree and get worse as you get colder. Just be smart with the throttle.

If you plan to drive around freezing, invest in some all season tires.

The pilot super sports are a very good all around tire.

Soccerluvr4 is just getting started.
What part of Cali? I'm in Sacramento and for the most part you could run summer tires year round.

I'm running the same. 285s on the rear with full suspension/full bolt ons and I still can't help not getting sideways. I think they suck ass.

Bridgestone Potenza RE970 is a beastly all season tire...pretty much smokes all other all season brands, yes, Michelin included. I got to test them on a closed course in very wet conditions against Goodyears, Michelin and Pirelli, believe me, none came close. I wish we had stangs as test cars but the BMW's were fun to drive.

agreed, just put on new ones got about 22K out of the last set....unless the temps drop to freezing I have had no problem with them as long as your smart with the throttle. Even when its cold and they warm up they are fine but early morning in cold temps they can be a little squirrley

The down side is....they are useless at the strip....horribly useless.
