I use Nitto 555 extreme. They are really good in wet weather, and so far have been holding up really well. Check out discount tire, they have a good selection of tires cheap.

^^They are decent, I had them last summer. Tire wear was horrible for me though. i barely made it thru the summer with them. (But i drive my car like it's supposed to be driven.. hard all the time) thumbsup

I went with Parada Spec II's this time. Havn't had my car out yet with them on (in Body shop) but i have heard nothing but good things about them. thumbsup

it's all about how 'sticky' your tire is.

the more sticky a tire, the softer the tire. the softer the tire the faster the wear.

and vice versa: the harder the tire, the less grip the tire has and the less wear a tire has.
