I like the 760s for a daily cheap tire. I'm actually leaning towards Continental DWS or DW

On the other hand there are the all season potenzas which suffer a bit in performance but have dat all weather capacity and better life/less road noise....

Inb4 anything Michelin, they're expensive and are dead after 15k miles

Summer tires are perfectly fine in the rain, just not snow or dirt.

BF Goodrich never gave me a good impression of any sort of performance. Just cheap and mediocre.

I don't have any first hand experience with them. I just know that I don't like unidirectional tires anymore, and I don't like small tread blocks.

I had the Pirelli P Nero zero or whatever they were, and I can't say anything bad about them. Lasted 35k miles with 2 full track weekends. I have the hankook V12's, and they are ok.

Every summer tire I've used has been better in the rain than any all-season I've used.

I used a BFG all-season protouringsomethingorother tire on the Lexus. Worst tire I've ever driven on. That's my only experience with them.
