It seems that this season has convinced me I want rains if I am going to race! My question is, what is the best tire I can buy for our type of racing? I have 13" x 5" wheels on a Datsun B210. Reading the tire sales sites do not really give me any guidance.

Many thanks,
John Payne

I would suggest calling Dave Handy at Sacosports and Bob Woodman at Bob Woodman tire. Both of them are very friendly and knowledgeable and I'm sure they could help you out.

I am running the Hoosier H2O Wets in 195/60 13 on a 510 and love them!!! I normally run R888s in 225/45 13 and went with the narrower size to keep the diameter right. I used them for the first two times in the last month at Watkins Glen and at Dominion. Fantastic tires! Great grip in the wet and totally predictable. They seem to stay together once a dry line is established too. Highly recommend them.
