Default New Summer Tires for 2009 WRX

My stock tires are pretty much bald so it's time to get a new set of high performance tires. Decisions, decisions; so I'm leaning towards Pirelli's right now but any input would help. Ideally it would be nice for them to work in the wet, on the track, and handle some spirited mountain road driving. What do you guys recommend?

StarSpecs are one of the best for your criteria. If you need more life at the cost of some performance, I'd go with the Continental DW referenced in the link above.

I have the Conti DWs they are a great tire... the Star Specs are fantastic but you will buy tires every year if you drive it hard.
