i would say go with some BFgoodrich KDW 2's

i ran these the first year i autocross'd and used them for my daily. they are great street tires for driving and when they start to get hot they start to get real sticky which is great for autocross. But the best thing about them is they are by far the best tire i've ever used in the rain. they are epic when its really wet. another plus the tread pattern is super cool. and i got more miles out of these tires than any other tire I have used on my car.

other tires i can recommend, the rs 3's are good like stated. kumho xs's are nice. (i'm currently running them.) And the toyo proxes r1r (probably the best autocross tire for small cars.)
