I have been *very* happy with BFG Comp T/As, in all their evolutionary 
iterations, over a *long* period of time, and over three cars, including
the Syncro (currently wearing 195-60 HR-4 14 Comp T/As).  These are the *only* 
tires I've ever gotten 20K miles from (others commonly report 40K), and I think 
they're fantastic in the wet as well as the dry!

Cheers, <vbg>
