Have you tried Expedia S-01? I like 'em. Tread life is little bit short,
but grip is great. The temperature does play a role in its grippiness. But
even at sub freezing temp, it performs above-average in grip dept.

Although not available in U.S., Bridgestone has a new top tire called
Potenza RE710 Kai somewhere else around the world. They claim the
technology developed in this tire was tested in DTM, and now in
Bridgestone F1 tires (yeah, right...). But if your neck of wood got these,
it's a worth to try 'em out (well, at least I'm interested how they
perform. Hee hee!).
