Forgive my ignorance, but i'm not sure that i know the technical difference between the two seasonal tires. Here in houston, our summers are very hot and tropical. 100+ degrees with 80%+ humidity. Our winters aren't very cold (usually not below 40-45). When it rains here, it pours...and often floods. When i had my hydroplane wreck (with Hankook V12's), I was driving 35mph in a 65mph because it was raining so hard that there was almost no visibility. I hydroplaned at only 35mph, did a 360 on the freeway, and hit the center concrete barrier wall. Hope that helps narrow down the selection.
I would like a decent summer performance tire, but am more concerned with rain performance...especially since a have a baby on the way. Safety first! I also do not want RFT's. In my opinion, they feel horrible.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
