Best tires for wet weather?

I have a 2003 Malibu with tire size 15". My mechanic says the tires I have (Michelin hydroedge) are so old they’re starting to tear. I drive about 30-35,000 miles per year and live in Georgia, where wet weather and DOT debris are a bigger problem than snow. I don’t mind spending a lot of money on tires, but don’t want to sacrifice comfort for protection. Can anybody suggest a brand? I’ve liked the hydroedge and Goodyear’s Aquatread.

Hydroedge and Aquatread are both good wet weather tires. If you like the Michelins that you’re replaceing and don’t mind the cost, I’d suggest getting the same tire for replacements.
