I HATED the Conti's that came with my Focus. (16inch LRR). They had no grip, were very bumpy, were quite loud, and hydroplaned like you wouldn't believe. At 2500 miles I swapped them out for a set of Michelin Primacy MXv4's and have never been happier.
They are all seasons, but they are considered "performance all seasons" by most places I've looked online. They are very quiet, comfortable, and grip like you wouldn't believe. They handle themselves well in light snow too, and rain doesn't bother me anymore.
