Those Michelin XIce Tires on Wet Pavement
It was pouring down in Boise, and those Michelin XIce tires grip very well indeed on wet pavement. They remind me of the Goodyear GT Radials I had in the 1970s: nothing special on dry but incredibly sticky in the wet. I remember seeing a road test a couple years later where they were the worst performance tire in the dry, and the best in water; about the same skidpad figures wet and dry.
