    Ok, it is not a GM (not a ford neither) lol. She has winter tires and now looking for non winter tire. The big thing is wet roads. I told her to get a summer tire but she is looking at all season. Tire size is 235/60-18. For her Kia Sorento LX v6.
    Any opinions will help besides tell her to buy a GM. I tried.lol

    With wet traction the first thing that came to my mind is the Cooper Discover CTS.

    You like them? Very bad reviews. There is no way she will get them

    A buddy of mine at work just put a set of them on his wife's SUV and he said they are doing really well. He was all about wet traction and just triggered the CST when I saw your post. I have no first hand experience with them.

    I put a set of LTX M/S on my wife's Highlander last summer and they are awesome, but more on the expensive side.

    Goodyear tripletred. Superior wet traction. I put two sets through the test on the wife's CR-V. Only thing that stopped another set was the no longer make them in 15".

    whatever you do don't let anyone talk you into dunlops. The tire store talked me into putting them on my wife's torrent. They were loud, we lost 2 mpg, and they warrantied 2 of them within a year because of odd road noise.

    Pikey,,wh,,,,whatdidyasay? repeat that please! heee-heee-heee! I would put steel wheels on, run with just the rims, before I would put all seasons on anything! But that's just MY not so humble opinion!

    +1 on the Michelins. I've always had good luck with Michelins, but they are on the pricey side. I just put some LTX M/S2 tires on my truck. I picked them because they have a winter tire tread pattern with lots of sipes. I'm sure the compound isn't as soft as a true winter tire, but it seems like a good compromise and they have great ratings.
