What is a good all season to replace my stock RE92s on my 98 RS?

Depends on what you mean by "good". Inexpensive? Long tread life? Good grip on dry roads? Good grip on wet roads? Good grip in mud & snow? Good grip on ice? Quiet? Smooth ride? Responsive on turns? Loses hold gracefully on corners?
Tirerack.com, one of our sponsors here, has a lot of info on their web site about many of these characteristics - worth a look.

Falken Ziex 512 is rated the best HP All-season in wet, dry, and snow. Cheap too!

.....the kumho's....the falkens....Toyo Proxes4's...or Pirelli PzeroNero's are the better choices-----roughly in ascending order according to price.

I ordered a Pilot XGT to replace one of the RE92s i had with a screw in it. I plan on replaceing the rest in the spring. How do this tires rate with you guys. I wanted an all around good all season tire. This is what Discount Tire guy suggested as a good V rated tire.

I just spent about a month trying to answer that very question, and what I came up with was the BFGoodrich G-Force Sports.

Just price, or price and quality? From what I've read, aside from maybe swapping the Kumho Ecsta ASX and Falkens, the PZero Nero M+S is a bit of a better tire than the Proxes4 which is a bit better tire than the ASX etc.

My biggest dilema is the wheel choice. Right now, either 17" anthracite Prodrive P-WRC1 or bronze Gram Light 57C (or S) paired with PZero Nero M+S tires are the front runners. I can get that combo at a decent price from Tire Rack ("that combo" being defined as the Gram Lights and Pirellis).
