Default perzo nero m&s for autox?

i participated in my first autox today with the stock re92s and well they suck, big suprise there.

I'm leaning towards pirelli pzero nero m&s for daily driven and maybe some more autox. I hear nothing but good things about these tires in both wet and dry. can someone give me some feedback on these tires for autox?
I'm also leaning away from the falkens azenis becuase i hear they dont grip that well int the wet. What other tire should i consider?

If the 'Azenis' and the pzeronero m&s are the only 2 tires you have ci=onsidered, you have a LOT of reasarch to do....I feel that the 'Azenis' are NOT great street tires, and the pirellis are NOT autox tires.
Kumho MX's may be a good alternative, altohugh you don't give us any information on what you will(try) to use the car for other than autox and possible wet weather use.
You may wish to get another set of wheels/tires for autox ONLY use.

Kuhmo MX's are pretty good sticky tires, decent street tires.

Falken Azenia's are about the same as the Kuhmo MX's.

Falken 451's are a newer tire design than the Azenia's and supposedly better in the wet, still awesome for an autocross (A few national titles were won on them this year).

Those are all the moderately priced good street tires I know of. Treadwear is low on all, but that is the biggest compromise of sticky tires vs. regular street tires.
