My daughter drives a 17 manual with the OE tires and rear ended someone while driving home from school. So after repairs, I'm driving it and notice the braking is not good in the rain. From what I have read online the low resistance tires do not have the grip of standard tires. I am looking for replacements after 32K miles. Any suggestions of a better tire for wet roads? I have snow tires for it so that is not an issue. I looking for stopping and safety. Thanks for any suggestions.

I have Yokohama Avid Ascend LX on my 09. Very good tire in wet and snow.
Anything Michelin is good too.

How worn were the tires? Aside from the cheapest, no-name tire you can find, it's hard to say which is the worst or best tire for use in the rain.

Like I tell my kids that drive my Versa. You break it? The next one is on you. Drive per the conditions.

FWIW, I'll need new 'summers' for our 2015 Versa. Still got the OEM continentals that are well worn. I have it's winter time Firestone Winterforces on it now. They go like a tank in the snow with those.
