Was wondering if anyone has suggestions for a good Florida tire. No snow here but we get lots of wet sometimes. 235/50 R18 on a passenger car. Thanks

You looking more for comfort or performance? I have the Cooper RS3-A on my CTS... http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direct...d=18&cs=235 They are an all season performance tire. Works great so far in the rain and dry. Handles well and has a 500 treadwear so not full Touring tire but also not a super high performance tire. If you want longer life then look at touring tires like the General AltiMAX RT43. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=General&tireModel=AltiMAX+RT43+%28H-+or+V-Speed+Rated%29&partnum=35VR8AMRT43&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes 700 Treadwear so should last longer and give a softer ride.

My new Pilot Sport A/S3's are amazingly grippy in the wet. I really love them in wet weather! If you read about them you will also see they are excellent in wet conditions.

Yea the RT43 and CS5 are both good touring tires. I put the Ultra CS5 on my BiLs car and my nephews car. The Ultra are a little better in snow but the Grand CS5 has a longer life span.
