From what I have read, grip won't be an issue for the type of riding that I do and I am not too concerned with wear/mileage.

I am looking for some first hand feedback on the wet weather performance of the BT-016.

I would also appreciate first hand opinions of how it compares to PP 2CTs and Diablo IIIs.

Thanks!

Diablo IIIs= shit in my book, ran them once and loved how they didnt grip...I'm a dunlap guy but pilot power race/medium is what I use at the track and there great!! Other then the opinions on those tires I cant speak cause Bridestone's have never touched my rims before!!

Dunlap's have new tires coming out here in the nexted week, should be very solid tires

I've ridden really hard in the wet in June and they were surprisingly good despite having over 3k on them.

Dunlaps huh ??? I heard of Dunlop before LOL :heyyou:

yeah I thought the stones were ok in the wet but not nearly as good as my PP2cts,there is alot more siping on the Michelin tyres for more water evac... I think I only road in the rain a few times on the stones and really didn't feel like they did that good a job. now the Michelins I have been in the rain alot with those last season and they worked great just my 2cents.. but like abprep07 said Dunlop has a new tyre thats sound like its gonna be pretty good.

i'm not a pp2ct fan but i think that in wet weather conditions, the pp2ct might be a better choice as the grooves on them lead all the way to the tires edge, whereas the 16's dont... Any other circumstance, its 16s for me over 2ct

the bt-016 is pretty good on wet weather, just make sure you have the tire up to the proper operating temp. the dc3's felt the same to me in the wet, so its a toss up. obviously i wasn't knee dragging in the wet, but i have ridden both tires pretty hard in a strait line and around the corners in the wet, and both are sufficient enough to have the LEO in chase under wet weather conditions.

I hear ya. I normally don't intentionally ride in the rain, however, if you live in Germany and want to ride in the spring/summer/fall, you have to be prepared to ride in the rain.
