    So far the reviews about ze 522 is not good. Im looking for a good performance
    tyre that has good grip in the rain and good cornering.

    Yup, feedback on ZE-522 is real bad for wet handling. Try and see if PS3 have in your size

    A good bet would be Michellin dude, then it's just a matter of how much you're willing to pay.

    What is your tyre size?
    Falken FK452 are pretty good. This is Falken top range model.
    Toyo T-1R? Quite good too, but they have the T-1 Sports now which is Asy. Pattern
    BS try the Potenza RE-002....

    Yep...if you can't afford Michellin, go for Hankook then.
    And if you're quite broke like me, go for Achilles - 180..200km/hr no prob.

    I'd been using this Achilles atr sport for the last 1 month and for a cheap tyre it's good. Grip at 200kph just like toyo, but you can smell the rubber after such a drive.
    Braking at 200? you gotta ask those SIC track junkies dude. Quite sure some of them on Achilles.

    Most tyres are safe, if use within their means. Track kakis also knows their limits.....:driver:
    Problem is not much feedback given on these tyres....
    you should give us some, since you are on them.....:biggrin:

    It was after raining. The jalan still licin. I was at 140 kmh, haha.
    I always make that little turn at that speed, but this time the car terbabas,
    hit divider, spins out of control and hit tiang api -.-
