    Rain? That is entirely a different question!
    Oh yeah derp, you have that giant body of water to regulate temps for you, and make rain...

    @bodasifa: I don't know about much superior tire from what I've read but you can't really go wrong with anything mid-range and better from Michelin. Heck, I was even impressed with their Riken sub-brand. If they get the same performance with a 500 TW rating compared to the 340 of the Firestones it's worth the price difference. If you can get that firestone order cancelled I'd say do it!

    These are the Michelins we have on the car - and for our US friends, these are the sorts of prices we Canadians have to pay (in Canadian dollars of course):

    They seem great in rain and we have had no problem in dry cold.
    Won't be driving this car in snow unless absolutely an emergency.

    For summer tires, if you want sticky and great for autocross or track time, I find that the dunlop direzzas have been a great tire for my miata. I use those as my "rain" tires and some toyo rr's as my dry tires. Still great grip when its raining!

    Thanks for the feedback. My primary motivation is daily driving so I'm staying away from anything below 300TW. My current summer tires lasted for two summers of commuting and ~120 autoX runs.

    Thanks everyone for the opinions and knowledge. I did end up pulling the trigger on the Firehawk Indy 500. My biggest concern is the reported rubbing. I'm stock height but my Blizzaks would rub at full lock with spacers and it could be pretty embarrassing. We'll see how these fare, starting in ~6 months.

    Yeah purchased from TireRack, available for immediate pickup. The blizzaks only rubbed at full lock in reverse. Unfortunately this is exactly how you get out of parking spaces so it happened fairly often, but at ~3mph. I'll be happy if the firestones are similar.
