The Star Spec is a freak - there's no way a summer max performance tire should do that in the wet. But they do - I've driven them. Still, if her RS-A's are giving her that much trouble, I'm not sure I'd recommend the Star Specs. Remember she's in a Sky RL - similar weight to the IRL, but with wider tires driven on the LIGHT end of the car.
The S-Drive or KDW's may very well be a superior choice for daily driving. The Good Years are also a maybe in my book - again, wider, on the lighter end of the car, in a car with may more torque than the Ion.
If you decide to get serious about autocross though, and stay on steets DEFINATELY get teh Star Specs. Amazing tires. Actually, your mods already put you in street modified, nevermind, lol - if you get serious about autocross, get R-compounds, cuz in your class you won't be competitive without them.
