    I had Dunlop direzzas on the fiesta.

    Not sure how those stack up but they did pretty well in the cold. They wore out friggin quick though.

    Not sure I'm ready to move on from past trauma with Dunlops, but those are on the short list too.

    Have Michelin Pilot Super Sport on the WRX. Wet performance was an important consideration.

    They don’t grip too well at low temps but I’ve driven them in cold rain without issue. Even snow, where they are completely hopeless.

    Michelin has expanded the Pilot line.

    I've been happy with my Direzza DZ102 (i think?) other than they wear out friggin quick.

    Direzza is a great tire for the money. Raced on them for years. As Smutty said, very predictable.

    VERY predictable.

    Doing an oil change? 50/50 shot if you need to change rear tires now too. Lol.

    I'm buying hankook r-s4s for my Miata this spring. They're not going to last forever though. I'll probably need another set before the end of 2020.

    I had them still on and left the car at the airport while visiting my sister for Thanksgiving. Didn't realize how bald they had gotten until driving home in a snowstorm with those things on. Saw multiple people off the side of the highway. White knuckle drive for sure.

    I find this channel to do some pretty good tires reviews:

    BFG Sport Comp 2s are $70 off at costco right now. $450 mounted and balanced before tax. Seems like thats the move.
