Buickboy I was really jealous until I saw that my size isnt available and the wet weather thing. Very happy with my Comp-2's!

These are competition tires dressed up as a street tire. I've seen quotes saying that competitors may want to have back up tires if faced with large amounts of standing water on race day.
I would tend to agree. The DW is a great wet traction summer only tire. The Rival is a tire meant for the track on dry days. Can it be driven every day? Sure, and we'll know more about it's wet traction when we do our full test late spring, but I wouldn't but it with the intention of thinking it will be a good rain/wet tire, that's not what it was built for.

These would be at $147/tire and we should get our first order in early spring, mid-April is when it's set to for now.

The 4 rib only comes in tires 265 and up so each size only has one choice.

Julian@TireRack.com Anywhere from $117 for 15" sizes to $173 for 17's. (and $372 for a 315/35R20, let me know if you can get that to fit)
What size were you looking at?
