All-seasons with good wet grip

Almost crashed my Challenger into a guardrail today after giving it too much gas on a wet onramp (yes, I know it was dumb on my part). Stability control didn't seem to kick in nearly soon enough, and after fish-tailing a few times, I found myself off-roading it for a few hundred feet before safely making it onto the highway. An aside: the car did pretty well in a straight line at 40mph on wet grass! I currently have the stock 20" RSA's (which need to be replaced), and hope there are better all-seasons out there in terms of wet cornering and straight line grip. Does anybody here have any feedback concerning the following tires' (or any others) wet grip ability? The Generals and Yokos seems to rate pretty highly on TireRack. Thanks!

General G-Max
Yokohama Parada Spec-X
Kuhmo Ecsta 4X
Toyo Proxes 4

I have Yokohama Parada Spec X 245 45 20 Front and 255 45 20 Rear, they have good wet and cold weather traction, and they are OK in the snow I got 25K on them and will replace with the same. It rains so much in Seattle, I don't even bother to put the F1's back on there !!!

Take a look at the Nitto Motivo. It is an UHP all season. We did some testing with this tire on wet and dry track. They had remarkable grip even in the wet.

I replaced my RSA's with General G-MAX AS-03's. LOVE them! Best wet traction tire I have ever had. 7000 miles on them and they still have nearly new tread depth. Rotate at 4k miles and no difference between frt and rear wear. I have to really try to get these tires to break loose in the rain, the old RSA's just needed slight throttle applied. I highly suggest these.

Suggest adding the Continental Extreme Contact DWS tires to your list - they are UHP all season and have done very well for me on wet roads. Got them from Tire Rack, the 255/45x20's were less $$$ than the 245/45/20's!

Just discovered these Motivos today - they look very promising too, ESPECIALLY with a 60k mile warranty. I need to add these to the list.

I wanted to go with the Motivo but my closest store said they are on back order which means at least two months. I am going with the Nittos instead. 245/45/20 up front and 275/40/20 out back.

How do they handle compared to the F1's?

A good all season tire are the yokohama yk580 i have those on my challenger now and i went with the falken fk452 on my charger and both of these tires do excellent in the rain. I could spit and break loose on those RSA's biggest pos tire available. Good luck with your choice. Lot of options for you to choose from.
