I have Ecsta 712s on the front and Ecsta ASX on the rear. Wet traction is fantastic.

The ASX has "siping" along the outside track to wick water away and it works very well. It also has a 420 treadwear rating so I am replacing them soon with 34K miles on the rear tires. The ASX is W-rated (168mph) with AA traction rating. For the price, I have not found a tire I like better than the ASX for the rear.

The 712 is Z-rated (169+mph) and a 280 treadwear with AA traction rating. I like the 712 up front because it has a stronger bite with the uni-directional tread for steering. The 712 lasts about 20K miles up front for us.
