Post Track tires-Rain

I'm looking to get a set of DOT rain tires for DE's and Club racing next year.
I run Hoosiers for dry conditions, but want to get advice on rain tires and the "I just wasted a Hoosier and I need to run the rain tires on a dry track".
Toyo R1, Michelin Cups, Yokohama 032?

Michelin Cups, one tire for both rain and dry. I am switching to them for next season.

Getting race tires that will last for more than 2 weekends and one race is very attractive. Best part is that they are just as fast.

Some use hand cut Hoosiers. They are suposed to give the best "stick" because of the soft compound. And because of the soft compound, you have to keep them in the wet or they will quickly wear out.
Michelin Cups, according to some, are not that great in very wet situations. More of an "intermediate" tire.
Alot of people use the Yoko 032Rs as the best compromise. They are not as good as cut Hoosiers but can be driven on dry parts of the track.
