One of my friends picked up a set of the Dunlop Star Specs for his Miata and they're amazing...Super super sticky (the negative is the low treadwear)! I also know for sure that the Contintental DW's are REALLY good for both dry/wet driving.

Yeah the DW's are nice and they have a fairly high tread rating for summer tires.

Definitely!
The DW are an excellent choice.
I have the DWS and they gripped better than my summer tires.. LOL

The tire you are looking for is here.

Michelin*Pilot Super Sport

It is the BEST tire out there. Click surveys and compare to literally any other tire on tirerack, none will beat it not even the ones that are twice it's price.

I have the RE760s, and have put about 20k miles on them. I like them, and I would recommend them. They are a good match for the Accord in the sense that they are quiet and smooth riding. They give up some ultimate grip for that ride refinement, but they are still a grippy summer tire, and lets be honest, the Accord isn't the sportiest chassis.

I'd like to try the Michelin Super Sports next, supposidly the ultimate summer tire.
