    Which 315 for the wet?

    I am in need of a 315/35/17 for the rear and it needs to have good wet traction/stability.I have BFg Dr's now and I just about wiped out the other day going 60 down the interstate and have finally got the seat dug outa my ass and looking at some tires.I Am looking at nitto's 555r and the vredestein brand,but I am open to other options.
    I will be going to the track ocaisionally but mainly need to be safe on the road.

    If you are going to be driving in rain, I would steer away from the Nitto 555R's. Buddy of mine has the Vredesteins and really likes them.

    Go with Yokohama A032R's they'll stick as much as 555r in dry, and night and day in wet.
    Those tires are really meant for wet... I've raced my car in wet with those and they are amazing.

    I have heard a little about them but I am unsure what they are designed for?

    I have a set of Eagle F1 GS-D3 315/35/17's on the rear of my Camaro, they're expensive, but the only tires I trust driving in the rain anymore.

    check any tire website for prices...
    In Canada, they used to be much cheaper than in the US... not sure what's the case nowadays.
    Yokohama A032R is their model name.
