I would go with Avon's if you can get them in your size. I ran Avon"s Venom tires for years and found them to be a perfect dry weather tire and an excellent wet weather tire. Great traction in both. You might get a couple of thousand less miles a set but you will get positive traction in all weather conditions. My 06 wing had new E3s on it when I bought it and they are down right scary in wet weather. Can't wait to wear them out and get into a set of Stones.
