Well mine have been great in the rain, but then again they're pretty much brand new. But the tread pattern would suggest taht they're especially good in the rain...i dunno.

bmd:I was considering a drop but I think the car would be way too low on the floor with people inside.

Ara:As for the tires, they r holding up pretty good in the rain so far but I am sure thats gonna change as they get worn out. What kind of tread life do you think they have?

You can't expect long life out of soft compound tires and most of its life really depends on how aggressive you drive. I drive pretty aggressively but luckily only drive my car 2-3 days a week (i live above the Yonge Subway line) so i should get lots of use out of these tires. But it's pretty easy to smoke soft compound tires.

As far as the drop is concerned, get a good set of springs and shocks and you shouldn't be too worried about carrying people in the car. I can easily take 4 in my car and my tires won't rub (mind you my fender wells are rolled tho).
