GO the RE730 route. It's a great all-weather tire, lasts pretty long (guesstimate a solid 2 years worth fo driving), and is relatively cheap. No it won't handle as good as the SO-2 on the dry, but then again, for $250 less, it shouldn't have to.
If you constantly demand DRY pavement performance, have some money to burn and don't mind buying tires about once a year, go the SO2 route. But it's not a wet weather tire.
I had the PZeros, the A520's, RE71's and now the RE730's. By far I like the RE730 as an overall, daily tire for the money. The RE730 is pretty confidence inspiring in the wet.
