You talking snow and ice or just rain?? If it's snow and ice, I would consider getting a set of dedicated snow tires and another set of tires for summer. If it's just rain...then a soft compound tire with a directional tread would work well. depends on what you're budget is and where you live.

For me in WI, I have a set of snow tires on my stock 15in that I run in the fall and winter and for the rest of the year, i run a set of High performance summer only tires.

Personally i have had awesome luck with the Goodyear assurance Triple Treads. they rock in the rain and on pavement. Haven't tested them on snow yet but they have improved my wet traction immensely

Lives with lots of snow up this direction. The Blizzaks are the best tires I've ever had on my car for snow/ice/slick driving conditions. I used to run a dedicated set of studded snow tires but the Blizzaks out perform them hands down. I'll be buying another set for my 00 this winter. Just remember, +1 with nintysixmustang, softer rubber compunds help traction in most slick conditions but they wear fast. So, Blizzaks for winter and spring and another set for summer or the Blizzaks will not last out the year.
