Well summer tires are ok in the rain.. its the snow during the winter I'm worried about.
I'm in a bmw 330ci.. and I'm moving somewhere near the city (probably south or west of forest park)... I really don't know yet.
what kind of summer tires? Generally, many summer tires do well in the rain, if they aren't to worn. If you still have the stock ContiSport (1 or 2) Contacts, then they should be fine in the rain. Maybe consider getting some extra wheels for the car and mount some good high performance all seasons, or dedicated snows.
