[Tires & Wheels] Best wet weather tyres
My s/h multispace came fitted with Michelin Energy Saver 205/65 tyres they're getting towards the end of their life and I'm thinking about what to replace them with, they don't feel too great in the wet .  Energy saving, road noise, long life and even price are not high on my list but wet weather grip is! (it rains a lot here in NI) Should I use winter tyres all year? Can anyone recommend tyres that they have actually used?  Cool
I've been running Avon ZV5 tyres since the original Michelins wore out. I can't say they are specific rain tyres but having used them through two winters I am pleased with the grip and handling.

I did have problems in the snow with traction but hopefully I will be armed with snow socks next time.

I've heard good things about Michelin "CrossClimate" tyres, and may try some the next time I buy tyres. They are supposedly very quiet running, and are supposed to have excellent grip in Winter AND in Summer (hence the name CrossClimate).

Not brand related but if your looking for somewhere to buy the tyres then I recommend these:
