Go with Toyo Proxies 4. All weather ultrahigh performance. Good in dry/rain/snow. I actually tracked these tires last weekend and they performed amazingly well. I was able to corner (and out corner) with WRX wearing summer tires and STIs.

They have a 300 wear rating, the stock RE 92s only are wear rated at 160. In the wet they are unbelievable.

Depending on your haggling skills you can get them mounted and balanced for 420-500 dollars. I got my 225/50-16 out the door for $420.

I thought the W10s were discontinued and replaced with the FM901s? But I had them and handled pretty well in both wet and dry. I think the worse thing about them were the noise... look pretty aggressive though.

And aren't wear ratings different for different companies?
