Well, it's been about a month or so since I got the Michelin HydroEdge tires on my Ion. I very much like them!
These tires were a little pricy at $115 a piece, but they are a tire rated for 90,000 miles and are a top-rated tire for rain on tirerack.com.
Many years back I had a scare in a previous car where I lost traction on a went onramp and spun out. Ever since then, I have felt very uncomfortable on wet roads. I feel the tires trying to cut through the water on the concrete, and trying to hydroplane on them. Well, these HydroEdges cut through the water sitting on the road very well, thereby keeping the contact with the road much better. The first day I had the tires I purposely drove in the deep water built up in the ruts of the road to try to test the tires, and they did great! I would definitely reccomend these tires to anyone looking for an excellent rain tire.
