    Cheap tyres that handle really well in both wet and dry don't exist. That's why expensive tyres exist.

    However, the cheap Kingstar K106 tyres I have on the front do pretty well in everything except very wet roads. They grip well in the dry, and work OK on damp and slippery streets. Only on a rain soaked motorway does the trouser eating commence.

    Kingstar is a Hankook brand, same as Ventus and Europa.
