My point is, blanket statements that RS3 suck in the cold/wet are simply incorrect, biased, and unwarranted.
Agreed. All tires have their limits in cold/wet, and the RS3's have a lot of potential considering the type of tire they are. My friend and myself had no problem running fast times on RS3's with maybe 1/3 life left in a moderately heavy rain at Sebring last year on his s2k.

I will say that the one time I was stuck driving on RS3's in a Florida downpour on a highway was quite sketch, and not something that I would prefer to repeat.
