I heard the Kuhmos (the 712s) are supposed to be almost as good in the rain as they are on dry surfaces. I dont know wether to switch back to my stocks for the rain since ive never heard how well my 17s (Dunlop FM901) are in the rain....i guess ill have to find out for myself.

My car's running stock size Kumho 712's and they are awesome in the rain! The center line in the tire really helps the channel the water.

I think Toyo tires are the best for the rain, out of the seven sets of tires I've had on my car!
