Best Wet Weather & Hydroplaning Resistance Tires

Author: Maisie | Published on Fri Feb 13 2015 | Views : 2325 Tire Reviews0

You can’t always drive on dry and clear roads. No matter where you live and you go, you have to face to some conditions such as rainy or snowy. If you’re living in someplace where rain is going to come more often than other places. You must choose a best rainy tire for your vehicle. So here are 5 TOP tires for rain, hope you can select the perfect tire for rainy weather.

5. Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3

The price about this tire will cost you over 100 bucks per tire. In fact, Goodyear’s Eagle F1 GS-D3’s are a favorite among motorist’s, with very few bad reviews across the board. For the price, the F1 GS-D3’s are cheaper but still juest as good as higher priced options. They are not intended at all for cold driving, or on ice and snow though, so be wary. These are a great choice for hard drivers in rainy regions, as their performance shines when the roads are wet. F1 GS-D3’s will wear quite quickly though, so be careful to check your treads a lot.       




4. BFGoodrich G-Force T/A KDW-2

There is a good debate between enthusiasts whether the BF Goodrich G-force T/A KDW-2 or the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 are better for the money. Regardless of the fanboy/fangirl opinions, both are good tires for around the same cost. Some drivers have found that the G-Force tires provide a bit of road noise, though it is an inconsistence complaint. These tires operate amazingly in the rain and other wet weather conditions, but they won’t work magic: if you are an inexperienced driver you’ll find yourself fishtailing all over the place. If you know how to drive in wet conditions, the g-forces will work in your favor.




3. Bridgestone’s Potenza S-02 Pole Position

Maybe the best tire you can get if you want both peak dry and wet tire performance. These tires may break the bank, but it’s worth it for a summer tire that cannot be beat. Noiseless, great handling, and perfect for heavy commutes or track enthusiast, the Potenza S-02 are top notch. You’ll want to make sure you switch these tires out when the temperatures drop in late fall and winter, as they are specifically designed for the summer months.




2. Continental ExtremeContact DWS

If you want performance in both rain and slushy winter conditions, the ExtremeContact DWS is going to be high on your list of tires to choose from. With a 50k mile tread-wear warranty, and insane traction control, the ExtremeContact DWS tires will cost just a tad less than the Pilot Sport A-S + but still be a little more costly than other options. Still, the price is worth it. The letters DWS printed on the tire tell you the following: When the S wears away and the letters DW remain, it means your tires are still good for dry and wet conditions, but not snow performance. Once the W wears away and the D is showing, it means the tire is rated for only dry performance. This wear indicator is useful so you do not have to second guess your traction and tire safety.




1. Michelin Pilot Sport A-S+

For ultimate control in wet conditions, but still retaining great performance when the pavement is dry, the Pilot Sport A-S + is the best tire you can get, though not the cheapest choice. While road noise may be substantial for the first hundred or so miles, eventually you’ll find an amazing ride with  these tires. Of course tires that are made purely for dry pavement are going to be betterfor those conditions, but the Pilot Sports come pretty damn close to being perfect on both wet and dry roads. You may also find 

Some under-performance problems on ice and snow, but then you’d be buying snow tires for winter months, wouldn’t you?
