Re: Rain tires
well i dont agree about riding the same dry and wet tires. just like with dry tires you have to try them and see what you like best. there actually are alot of options, they have tread design differences, ie regular tread cut and waffle (i believe is how its reffered to) cut. i personally like the waffle cut pirellis even though i ride dunlop gpa slick drys. pirrellis have a little more of a spongy feeling that i love in the rain. best bet is to just pick some up and see what you like. only thing i recommend is that you make sure to check the prod. date before you buy only because rains get used less obviously, so they have a tendancy of getting left around.
