Best all-weather tires for '04 Focus SVT?
 
Does anyone have recommendations for best all-weather tires for an '04 SVT? I do not drive in snow, but drive regularly in rain in VA. I've had summer tires, and while great for their purpose, I don't like the wet performance.

Thanks, PR

I like my Conti DWS and they look good.

I have/had Eagle GT's on mine and they seemed ok and I've ran Eagle GT HR's on the other focus multiple times. The Conti DWS's are also good as I had those on the 16" rims.

Both above are good suggestions. I have the Eagles on a 05 Saleen Focus and like them, but really haven't pushed them hard in rain. They replaced Extreme Perfromance Pirelli Corsas which lasted only about 8k miles from new. I've read good reports in the car mags on the Conti DWS. Thanks for sharing.

I've also got a set of Continental DWS tires on mine and so far they have been quite nice. Low noise, good grip, and they seem to do well in snow & rain.

They do better on snow that's an inch or two deep vs the packed stuff where the grip was just so-so.

+1 for the Conti DWS's. I bought a set after doing some research in 11/2011 and they hardly show any wear.

Thanks again. The DWS's seem hard to beat.

I'm running Pirelli PZero Nero high performance all seasons. I think they are great. Have had them for 10k. They are great in rain and actually pretty good in snow.
