Cool Wet and Dry, what do you use?

For dry weather I use Nittos 555 RII's and they work great. I've thought about getting a set of Hoosiers eventually, but hear they aren't forgiving...in the way of giving a warning by way of noise before they slide out.

I'd like to know what people use if the track is wet or damp? Do you run something different?

When I ran at Daytona I ran w/ my Nittos one day when the track was wet and it was downright scarey. I even did a nice 360 in the infield...saved it...and kept on going. (was never flagged or pulled off either. LOL)

So what type tires do you use WET and DRY and what is your 'normal' running PSI ?

Thank you for your input.

Looks like I may need some Toyo's on my other rims.
