    I'm a new driver with a CRX ITA car. I need info on rain tires. What makes and what will
    fit stock CRX rims. I know someone talked a little about this last week but I need more
    info. I know Hoosiers Dirt stockers are the best but how much? What else do people use?
    Let me know whats out there!

    I used the Yokohamas last year and because of the somewhat unfortunate weather (lots of damp running) got a fairly good feel for what they could do. Not bad.
    Unfortunately, wet running can be so varied, it is impossible to have thee best tire for the conditions.
    Apparantly the Hoosier dirt stocker is the best for pouring rain and standing water (if there is anything that comes close to working). However, I have heard good things about a full tread Kuhmo and I used to use a TOYO Proxes for the rain, which was a good tire also. These tires may last longer in drying conditions.
    Make certain you have something!

    I use Dirt Stockers on my 944 ITS racer. They make you feel invincable. But don't run them unless its raining or you will shread them as they are very soft.
