Looking for four-season tire recommendations

Wet traction isn't quite as good as a real "rain tire" but is quite acceptable. I've gone 55 MPH in complete downbursts and didn't feel as though I was loosing traction (yeah, I know, slow down). I think these tiers are a great compromise for those of us who don't want to fiddle with summer & winter tires...

How do they really do in the wet?  Hydroplaning seems to be the biggest
problem I find with most tires.  If they stick in the wet, they often have
problems elsewhere...  Have you driven them in some nasty rain and puddle
