how cold is your winter? For me, it also means some patches of ice.cparrish said:I just picked up an extra set of wheels to commute with through the winter which means mostly wet roads here. Has anyone had a tire that performed especially well in the rain?
I'm thinking 700x25
That is one reason. The other is that the water keeps the grit, wire shards, and glass bits stuck to your tire (cappilary action) so that they have a chance to work their way into the tread. In dry weather, most of that stuff would just fall off.m_s said:I have heard it is because the moisture acts as a lubricant, allowing debris to slide more easily into the rubber.
